the water in your area. Your local Water Authority can advise
you on the hardness of the water in your area.
3. Press the function push button 1, the indicator lights of
function push buttons 2 and 3 turn off while the indicator
light of the push button 1 goes on flashing, at the same time
the END OF CYCLE indicator light illuminates, along with a
sequence of audible signals.
The current level is indicated by the number of flashes of
the END OF CYCLE indicator light and of audible signals
heard.
Example:
5 flashes + 5 audible signals = level 5.
The water softener must be set in both ways: manually, using
the water hardness switch and electronically, using the function
push buttons on the control panel.
a) Setting manually

Filling with salt
Only use salt specifically designed for use in
dishwashers.
All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in
a dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water
softener.
Only fill with salt just before starting one of the complete
washing programmes.
This will prevent any grains of salt or salty water, which
may have been spilt, remaining on the bottom of the
machine for any period of time, which may cause
corrosion.
To fill:
1. Open the door, remove the lower basket and unscrew the
cap of the salt container by turning it anticlockwise.
2. Pour 1 litre of water inside the container (this is necessary
only before filling with salt for the first time).
3. Using the funnel provided,
pour in the salt until the
container is full.

4. Replace the cap making
sure that there is no trace
of salt on the screw
thread or on the gasket.
5. Screw on the cap tightly
turning it clockwise until it
stops with a click.
SR14
The salt container will require topping up periodically. You are
reminded of this by the salt indicator light on the control panel
which comes on when the salt has finished.
The salt indicator light on the control panel can remain
illuminated for 2-6 hours after the salt has been
replenished, assuming the dishwasher remains switched
on. If you are using salts that take longer to dissolve then
this can take longer. The function of the machine is not
affected.
Do not worry if water over flows from the unit when filling with
salt, this is quite normal.

Rinse aid
●
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring
thorough rinsing, and spot and streak free drying.
The dispenser, which is positioned inside the door, holds about
110 ml of rinse aid, which is sufficient for 16 - 40 dishwashing
programmes, depending upon the dosage setting.
Deactivation/activation of the dosage of
rinse aid
Filling with rinse aid
(The dishwasher must be switched off)
1. Open the container by pressing the release button (A).
Factory setting: inflow of rinse aid activated
2. Add the rinse aid until the container is completely full. The
maximum level for filling is indicated by "max".

3. Press the function push button 2, the indicator lights of
function push buttons 1 and 3 turn off while the indicator
light of the push button 2 goes on flashing, at the same time
the END OF CYCLE indicator light illuminates, indicating
that the dosage of rinse aid is active.
Only use branded rinse aid for dishwashers. Never fill the
rinse aid dispenser with any other substances (e.g.
dishwasher cleaning agent, liquid detergent). This would
damage the appliance.
4. To deactivate the dosage of rinse aid, press again the
function push button 2, the END OF CYCLE indicator light
turns off, indicating that the dosage of rinse aid has been
deactivated.
Adjusting the dose
According to the finish and drying results obtained, adjust the
dose of rinse aid by means of the 6 position selector (position
1 minimum dosage, position
6 maximum dosage).
5. To memorise the operation, switch off the dishwasher by
pressing the On/Off push button or wait about 60 seconds
after which the dishwasher will automatically return to
setting mode.
The dose is factory set in
position 4.
Increase the dose if there are
drops of water or lime spots
on the dishes after washing.
Reduce it if there are sticky
whitish streaks on the dishes
or a bluish film on glassware
or knife blades.
If you are using dishwasher detergent that already contains
rinse aid, the detergent including the rinse aid must be
placed in the detergent compartment.
In this case the rinse aid dosage must be deactivated in
orderto avoid a double dosage.
To activate again the dosage of rinse aid simply follow the
above operations until the END OF CYCLE indicator light
illuminates.

In daily use
●
Check if it’s necessary to refill with dishwasher salt or rinse
aid
●
Load cutlery and dishes into the dishwasher.
●
Fill with dishwasher detergent .
●
Select a wash programme suitable for the cutlery and
dishes.
●
Start the wash programme.
Loading cutlery and dishes
Sponges, household cloths and any object that can
absorb water may not be washed in the dishwasher.
●
Before loading the dishes, you should:
- Remove large left-overs.
- Soften remnants of burnt food in pans
●
When loading the dishes and cutlery, please note:
- Dishes and cutlery must not impede the rotation of the
spray arms .
- Load hollow items such as cups, glasses, pans, etc. with
the opening downwards so that water cannot collect in the
container or a deep base.
- Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one
another, or cover each other.
- To avoid damage to glasses, they must not touch.
- Lay small objects in the cutlery basket.
●
Plastic items and pans with teflon have a tendency to
retain water drops; these items will not dry as well as
porcelain and steel items.
For washing in the dishwasher the following cutlery/dishes
are of limited suitability:
are not suitable:
- Cutlery with wooden, horn, china or
mother-of-pearl handles
- Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it is specifically
marked as being dishwasher-safe by the manufacturer.
- Plastic items that are not heat resistant
- Glazed patterns may fade if machine washed frequently
- Older cutlery with glued parts that is not
temperature resistant
- Silver and aluminium parts have a tendency to discolour
during washing. Residues, e.g. egg white, egg yolk and
mustard often cause discolouring and staining on silver.
Therefore always clean left-overs from silver immediately, if
it is not to be washed straight after use.
- Bonded cutlery items or dishes
- Pewter or copper items
- Lead crystal glass
- Some types of glass can become dull after a large number
of washes
- Steel items subject to rusting
- Wooden platters
- Items made from synthetic fibres
The two rows of prongs on the lower basket can be easily
lowered to allow you to load pots, pans and bowls.
Open the door and slide out the baskets to load the dishes.
The lower basket
The lower basket is designed to take saucepans, lids, plates,
salad bowls, cutlery etc.
Serving dishes and large lids should be arranged around the
edge of the basket, ensuring that the spray arms can turn
freely.

The cutlery basket
Adjusting the height of the upper basket
Long bladed knives stored in an upright position are a
potential hazard.
Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving knives
must be positioned horizontally in the upper basket.
Take care when loading or unloading sharp items such as
knives.
If washing very large plates you can load them in the lower
basket after moving the upper basket to the higher position.
Maximum height of the dishes in
upper basket
lower basket
Forks and spoons should be placed in the removable cutlery
basket with the handles facing downwards and the knives with
their handles facing upwards.
If the handles protrude from the bottom of the basket,
obstructing the lower spray arm, load the cutlery with the
handles facing upwards.
With upper basket raised
20 cm
31 cm
With upper basket lowered
24 cm
27 cm
To move to the higher position proceed as
follows:
Mix spoons with other cutlery
to prevent them from sticking
together.
1. Move the front runner stops (A) of the upper basket
outwards and slide the basket out.
2. Refit the basket in the higher position and replace the stops
(A) in their original position.
For best results we
recommend you to use the
cutlery grid provided (if the
size and dimensions of the
cutlery allow it).
When the basket is in the
higher position you will not
be able to use the cup
rack(s).
UI76
The upper basket
RC01
The upper basket is designed for plates (dessert plates,
saucers, dinner plates of up to 24 cm in diameter), salad
bowls, cups and glasses.
Arrange items on and
underneath the cup racks so
that water can reach all
surfaces.
Glasses with long stems can
be placed upside down in the
cup racks.
For taller items, the cup
racks can be folded upwards.
US75
Light items (plastic bowls
etc.) must be loaded in the
upper basket and arranged
so they do not move.
Before closing the door,
ensure that the spray arms
can rotate freely.
After loading your machine always close the door, as an
open door can be a hazard.
US74
10
Use of detergent
Only use detergents specifically designed for use in
dishwashers.
We recommend the use of Finish detergents.
Using no more then the correct amount of detergent
contributes to reducing pollution.
Please observe the manufacturer’s dosing and storage
recommendations as stated on the detergent packaging.
Fill with detergent
1. If the lid is closed: press release button (1). The lid springs
open.
2. Fill the detergent dispenser (2) with detergent.
The marking indicates the dosing levels:
20 = approximately 20 g of detergent
30 = approximately 30 g of detergent
DE19
DE22
3. All programmes with prewash need an additional detergent
dose (5/10 g) that must be placed in the prewash detergent
chamber (3). This detergent will take effect during the
prewash phase.
4. Close the lid and press until it locks in place.
11
Different kinds of detergent
Detergent tablets
Use of "3 in 1" combi detergents
Detergent tablets of different brands dissolve at different
speeds. For this reason some detergent tablets cannot
dissolve and develop their full cleaning power during short
programmes. Therefore please use long programmes when
using detergent tablets, to ensure the complete removal of
detergent residuals.
Do not place the tablets in the tub or in the cutlery basket
as this will result in poorer wash results. The tablets
should be placed in the detergent dispenser.
General advice
These products are detergents with integrated and combined
detergent/rinse-aid and salt functions.
1. Before using these products you should first check that the
water hardness in your supply is compatible with the use of
these products as per the detergent manufacturers (on the
product packaging).
2. These products should be strictly used according to the
detergent manufacturers instructions.
3. If you encounter problems when using 3 in 1 products for
the first time then please contact the detergent
manufacturers care line (the telephone number is given on
the product packaging).
Concentrated detergent
Based on their chemical composition, dishwasher detergents
can be split into two basic types:
- conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components.
- low alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes.
The use of 50°C washing programmes in conjunction with
concentrated detergents reduces pollution and is good for your
dishes; these wash programmes are specially matched to the
dirt-dissolving properties of the enzymes in the concentrated
detergent. For this reason 50°C wash programmes in which
concentrated detergents are used can achieve the same
results that can otherwise only be achieved using 65°C
programmes.
Special advice
When using combination 3 in 1 products select the lowest
possible setting for water hardness.
If you decide to turn back to the use of the standard detergent
system we advise that you:
Combi detergents
●
Refill both the salt container and rinse aid dispenser.
●
Switch the water hardness setting to the highest possible
position and run from 1 to 3 normal washing programmes
without a load.
●
Readjust the water hardness setting again according to the
hardness of the water in your area.
If you are using dishwasher detergent that includes the rinse
aid function, this must be placed in the detergent compartment.
In this case it is necessary to deactivate the dosage of rinse
aid, in order to avoid a double dosage.
For best results we recommend the use of Finish detergents, rinse aid and salt.

Testing programme for EN 50242 (see "Hints for Test Centres"). This programme, developed for the use of detergents with
enzymes, allows you to achieve, with reduced consumption of energy the same cleaning results that would otherwise be
obtained only with the 65°C programmes and conventional detergents. To compensate the lower temperature, the duration of
washing and drying have been extended.

Starting a washing programme
In this fully integrated appliance the controls are located on the
top of the door. When selecting a programme, the door needs
to be open.
7. Unloading the dishwasher
Hot dishes are sensitive to knocks. The dishes should
therefore be allowed to cool down before removing from
the appliance.
Empty the lower basket first and then the upper one; this
will avoid water dripping from the upper basket onto the
dishes in the lower one.
Water may appear on the sides and the door of the
dishwasher as the stainless steel will eventually become
cooler than the dishes.
1. Check that the baskets have been
loaded correctly and that the spray
arms can rotate freely
2. Turn on the water tap
When the washing programme has finished, it is
recommended that the dishwasher is unplugged and the
water tap turned off.
3. Press the On/Off push button
All the indicator lights of the programme selection push

Maintenance and cleaning
Clean the external surfaces of the machine and control panel
with a damp soft cloth. If necessary use only neutral
detergents. Never use abrasive products, scouring pads or
solvent (acetone, trichloroethylene etc....).
Ensure that the seals around the door, the detergent and rinse
aid dispensers are cleaned regularly with a damp cloth.
We recommend the use of Finish Dishwasher Cleaner every
3 months or run a 65°C wash programme without dishes using
detergent.
Regular use of Finish Dishwasher Cleaner cleans
inaccessible parts, eliminates unpleasant food odours and
helps prevent the build-up of limescale.
9. Put the filter combination in place and lock by turning the
handle clockwise to the stop. During this process ensure
that the flat filter does not protrude above the base of the
washing compartment.
Cleaning the filters
NEVER try to remove the
upper spray arm.
Attention!
Under no circumstances may the dishwasher be used without
filters.
Incorrect repositioning and fitting of the filters will produce
poor washing results.
The filters must be checked and cleaned from time to time.
Dirty filters will degrade the washing result.
If residues of soil have
clogged the holes in the
upper spray arm, remove
them with a toothpick.
1. Open the door, remove the lower basket.
2. The dishwasher filter system comprises a coarse/fine filter
(A/B), a microfilter (C) and a flat filter (D).
Some dishwasher will only have a coarse filter (A), a
microfilter (C) and a flat filter (D).
Unlock the filter system using the handle on the microfilter,
and remove.

Installation instructions
Any electrical and/or plumbing work required to install
this appliance should be carried out by a qualified
electrician and/or plumber or competent person.
Water supply connections
This dishwasher must be plumbed into a cold water supply.
For making the connection itself, the coupling nut fitted to the
machine’s supply hose is designed to screw onto either a 3/4"
inch gas thread spout or to a purpose made quick-coupling tap
such as the Press-block.
The water pressure must be within the limits given in the
"Technical specifications". Your local Water Authority will
advise you on the average mains pressure in your area.
The water inlet hose must not be kinked, crushed, or entangled
when it is being connected up.
The dishwasher features fill and drain hoses which can be
turned either to the left or the right to suit the installation by
means of the locknut. The locknut must be correctly fitted
to avoid water leaks. (Attention! NOT all models of
dishwashers have fill and drain hoses provided with locknut. In
this case, this kind of facility is not possible).
If the machine is connected to new pipes or pipes which have
not been used for a long time, you should run the water for a
few minutes before connecting the inlet hose.
Do not use, for connection, old hoses which have been
used in another appliance.
The dishwasher is fitted with safety devices that prevent the
wash water returning into the drinking water system and
comply with the applicable plumbing regulations.
Remove all packaging before positioning the machine.
If possible, position the machine next to a water tap and a
drain.
Building-in
This dishwasher is designed to be fitted under a kitchen
counter or worksurface.
Attention!
Carefully follow the instructions on the enclosed template for
building in the dishwasher and fitting the furniture panel.
No further openings for the venting of the dishwasher are
required, but only to let the water fill and drain hose and power
supply cable pass through.
The dishwasher incorporates adjustable feet to allow the
adjustment of the height.
During all operations that involve accessibility to internal
components the dishwasher has to be unplugged.
When inserting the machine, ensure that the water inlet hose,
the drain hose and the supply cable are not kinked or
squashed.
Levelling
Good levelling is essential for correct closure and sealing of
the door.
When the appliance is correctly levelled, the door will not catch
on either side of the cabinet.
If the door does not close correctly, loosen or tighten the
adjustable feet until the machine is perfectly level.
Fixing to the adjacent units
The dishwasher must be secured against tilting.
Therefore make sure that the counter it is fixed under, is
suitably secured to a fixed structure (adjacent kitchen units
cabinets, wall).
20
Water outlet hose connection
Electrical connection
The end of the drain hose can be connected in the following
ways:
This appliance must be earthed.
The manufacturer declines any responsibility should this
safety measure not be observed.
1. To the sink outlet spigot, securing it to the underside of the
work surface. This will prevent waste water from the sink
running into the machine.
If the plug that is fitted to your appliance is not suitable for the
socket, it must be cut off and the appropriate plug fitted.
2. Hooked over the edge of the sink using the special curved
plastic guide (if provided with the machine).
Important
The wires on the mains lead are coloured in accordance with
the following code:
3. To a stand pipe provided with vent-hole, minimum internal
diameter 4 cm.
The waste connection must be at a height of between 30 cm
(minimum) and 100 cm (maximum) from the bottom of the
dishwasher.
Green and Yellow
- Earth
Blue
- Neutral
Brown
- Live
If you fit your own plug, the colours of the wires in the mains
lead of your appliance may not correspond with the markings
identifying the terminals in your plug.
The drain hose can face either to the right or left of the
dishwasher
Ensure the hose is not bent or squashed as this could prevent
or slow down the discharge of water.
Proceed as follows:
1. Connect the Green and Yellow (earth) wire to the terminal
in the plug which is marked with the letter "E" or the earth
symbol
or coloured green and yellow.
The sink plug must not be in place when the machine is
draining as this could cause the water to siphon back into the
machine.
2. Connect the Blue (neutral) wire to the terminal in the plug
which is marked with the letter "N" or coloured black.
If you use a drain hose extension it must be no longer than 2
metres and its internal diameter must be no smaller than the
diameter of the hose provided.
3. Connect the Brown (live) wire to the terminal in the plug
which is marked with the letter "L" or coloured red.
13 A
E
N
L
CS18
Likewise the internal diameter of the couplings used for
connections to the waste outlet must be no smaller than the
diameter of the hose provided.
CE04
Attention!
Our appliances are supplied with a security device to protect
against the return of dirty water back into the machine.
If the spigot of your sink has a "no return valve" incorporated
this can prevent the correct draining of your dishwasher.
We advise you therefore to remove it.
The plug moulded onto the lead incorporates a 13amp BSI362
fuse. Only ASTA or BSI fuses should be used.
The plug must not be used if the fuse cover/carrier is lost. The
cover/carrier is indicated by the coloured insert at the base of
the plug.
A replacement cover/carrier must be obtained from your local
Service Force Centre.
To isolate the dishwasher from mains, remove the mains plug.
Important!
The plug must still be accessible after the appliance
has been installed.
The appliance should not be connected to the
electrical supply by means of an extension cable.
In case that the electrical cable has to be replaced,
please contact your local Service Force Centre.
