Technical Information
G600 & G800 Electronic Dishwashers
The electronic unit activates the Softener Valve (Y38/1) and water from
the Water Intake Assembly flows into the Salt Container, where it
dissolves a quantity of salt to become a brine mixture.
The saturation point, above which the water cannot dissolve any more
salt, is approximately 40%. The brine then flows past a mechanical
Non-Return Valve into the Ion Exchanger and flushes the existing
water into the Sump. The built-in Non-Return Valve in the Softener
prevents the brine mixing with the incoming water during normal
The brine flushes the resin in the Ion Exchanger, and replaces the
retained calcium and magnesium ions, with sodium ions. At the next
program start, the incoming water flushes out the remaining brine and
hardness minerals before the actual dishwashing program begins.
