The manual is useless. Thanks to other reviewers, I learned helpful things about this machine. Here are a few tips of my own. I brought this home a few days ago to replace another small portable dishwasher that had served me well for the last 6 years. One problem a few others noted, the first time I tried to use it, it stayed in prewash, then drained, beeped and flashed the dry light, would not advance in cycle. This was clearly a fault of some kind, I suspect overflow. I finally set the machine on the sixth cycle (rinse), it worked, and after that I was able to run a regular cycle. I bought water softener salt (search Amazon for Somat) since I have hard water. I added salt to the reservoir, the light stayed on. I learned that the first time you add salt, you must also add water to dissolve salt and prime the system. Thereafter, only salt is added when the light comes on; the reservoir stays full of water. (I learned this from reading a Miele manual, they also make models with softeners.) The cycles are very long compared to my old machine, but use minimal water and detergent, and clean well. The hoses and hookup are plastic, do not appear the most durable.
