Before usi ng your dishwasher for the first time:
A. Fill the rinse aid dispenser
B. Function of detergent
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring thorough rinsing, spot
and streak free drying.
Only use branded rinse aid for dishwasher. Never fill the rinse aid dispenser with any
other substances (e.g. dishwasher cleaning agent, liquid detergent).
This will damage the appliance.
If there is no rinse-aid w arning light in the control panel, you can judge the amount of rinse-aid by the color of the optical level
indicator "D" located next to the cap. When the rinse-aid container is full, the whole indicator will be dark . As the rinse-aid
diminishes, the size of the dark dot decreases. You should never let the rinse aid get below 1 / 4 full.
D (Rinse-Aid indicator)
As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of the black dot
on the rinse aid level indicator changes, as illustrated right.

To open the dispenser, turn the cap to the "open" (left) arrow and lift it out.
Pour the rinse aid into the dispenser, being careful not to overfill.
Replace the cap by inserting it aligned with "open" arrow and turning it to the closed (right) arrow.
The rinse aid is released during the final rinse to prevent water from forming droplets on your dishes
that can leave spots and streaks. It also improves drying by allowing water to sheet off the dishes.
Your dishwashers are designed to use liquid rinse aids. The rinse aid dispenser is located inside the
door next to the detergent dispenser. To fill the dispenser, open the cap and pour the rinse aid into
the dispenser until the level indicator turns completely black. The volume of the rinse aid container
is about 140ml.
Be careful not to overfill the dispenser, because this could cause over sudsing. Wipe away any spills
with a damp cloth. Don't forget to replace the cap before you close dishwasher door.
Attention!
Clean up any rinse aid split during filling with an absorbent cloth to avoid excess foaming
during the next wash.
The rinse aid dispenser has six or four settings. Always start with the dispenser set on
“2”. If spots and poor drying are problems, increase the amount of rinse aid dispensed
by removing the dispenser lid and rotating the dial to “3”. If the dishes still are not
drying properly or are spotted, adjust the dial to the next higher number until your dishes
are spot-free. We suggest you to set on “4”(Factory value is “4”)
NOTE:
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.

Detergents with its chemical ingredients are necessary to remove dirt, crush dirt and
transport it out of the dishwasher. Most of commercial quality detergents are suitable
for this purpose.
Concentrated Detergent
Based on their chemical composition, dishwasher can be split in two basic types:
conventional, alkaline detergents wi th caustic components
low alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes
The use of “heavy” 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 of the concentrated detergent. For this reason
“heavy”wash programmes in which concentrated detergents are used can achieve the
same results that can otherwise only be achieved using “intensive” programmes.
Detergent Tablets
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
unsure the complete removal of detergent residuals.
Detergent Dispenser
The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each wash cycle following the instructions
provided in the Wash Cycle Table. Your dishwashers use less detergent and rinse aid
then conventional dishwashers. Generally, only one tablespoon of detergent is needed for
a normal wash load. Also, more heavily soiled items need more detergent. Always add the
detergent just before starting dishwasher, otherwise it could etc damp and will not dissolve
properly.
Amount of Detergent to Use

If the lid is closed: press release button. The lid springs open.
Always add the detergent just before starting each wash cycle.
Only use branded detergent aid for dishwasher.
Dishwasher detergent is corrosive! Take care to keep it out of reach of children.
Proper Use of Detergent
Use only detergent specifically made for use in dishwashers. Keep your detergent fresh
and dry. Don't put powder detergent into the dispenser until you're ready to wash dishes.

When use “2 in 1”、“3 in 1”、“ 4 in 1” or “5 in 1” Combination / Compact Detergents ,please pay attention to make sure that the size of the Combination Detergents
is fitted to the dispenser ,so that Combination Detergents can be ease to put in the
dispenser ,and dispenser would not be broken.
Attention
Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children's reach.
Always add the detergent in the dispenser just before starting the dishwasher.
Your dishwasher has a 3 in 1 program which needs not rinse aid but a THREE IN
ONE tablet. And this dishwasher comes with a 3 in 1 tablet container as an accessory.
NOTE: Only 3 in 1 program uses 3 in 1 tablet. If using 3 in 1 tablet in other programs, the
appliance will not get a best performance.
1、Referring to the below sketch map, hang the 3 in 1 tablet container on the upper basket.
2、Referring to the below sketch map, r otate the upper sprayer and change the location of the container if need to make
sure the upper sprayer does not be cumbered by the 3 in 1 tablet container.
3、Put the 3 in 1 tablet into the container then start the 3 in 1 program.

For best performance of the dishwasher, follow these loading guidelines. Features and
appearance of racks and silverware baskets may vary from your model.
Attention before or after Loading the Dishwasher Racks
Scrape off any large amounts of leftover food. It is not necessary to rinse the dishes under
running water. Place objects in the dishwasher in following way:
1.Items such as cups, glasses, pots/pans, etc. are stood upside down.
2.Curve items, or those with recesses, should be at a slant so that water can run off.
3.They are stacked securely and can not tip over.
4.They do not prevent the spray arms from rotating while washing takes place.
Very small items should not be washed in the dishwasher as they could easily fall out of the racks.
Removing the Dishes
To prevent water dripping from the upper back into the lower back, we recommend that you
empty the lower basket first and then the upper back.
Loading the Upper Rack
The upper rack is designed to hold more delicate and lighter dishware such as glasses, coffee
and tea cup and saucers, as well as plates, small bowls and shallow pans (as long as they are
not too dirty).
Position the dishes and cookware so that they do not get moved by the spray of water.

Maintenance and Cleaning
Filtering System
The filter prevents larger remnants of food or other objects from getting inside the pump.
The residues may block the filter, in this case they must be removed.
The filter system consists of a coarse filter, a flat (Main filter)
And a microfilter (Fine filter).
1
2

3
Caring for the Dishwasher
Main filter
Food and soil particles trapped in this filter are pulverized by a
special jet on the lower spray arm and washed down the
drain.
2
Coarse filter
Larger items, such as pieces of bones or glass, that could clog
the drain are trapped in the coarse filter. To remove an item
caught in this filter, gently squeeze the taps on the top of this
filter and lift it out.
3
Fine filter
This filter holds soil and food residues in the sump area and
prevents it from being redeposit on the dishes during a cycle.
To clean the control panel use a lightly dampened cloth then dry thoroughly. To clean the exterior
use a good appliance polish wax.
Never use sharp objects, scouring pads or harsh cleaners on any part of the dishwasher.
Protect Against Freezing
If your dishwasher is left in an unheated place during the winter, ask a service technical to:
1.Cut off electrical power to the dishwasher.
2.Turn off the water supply and disconnect the water inlet pipe from the water valve.
3.Drain water from the inlet pipe and water valve. (Use a pan to catch the wat er)
4.Reconnect the water inlet pipe to the water valve.
5.Remove the filter in the tub the bottom and use a sponge to use up water in sump.
12
Cleaning the Spray Arms
It is necessary to clean the spray arms regularly for hard water chemicals will clog the spray arm jets and bearings.
Remove the upper spray arms
To remove the upper spray arms, screw off the nut clockwise to take out
the washer on top of the spray arm and remove the arm.
Remove the lower spray arms
upper
lower
To remove the lower spray arm, pull out the spray arm upward.
Wash the arms
Wash the arms in soapy and warm w ater and use a soft brush to clean
the jets. Replace them after rinsing them thoroughly.
Cleaning the Filters
- Inspect the filters for blocking after every time the dishwasher has been used.
- By unscrewing the coarse filter. you can remove the filter system. Remove any food remnants and clean the
filters under running water.
Open
1
step1:Turn the filter in anti-clockwise direction,
then lift it up
2
step2:lift the Main filter up
3
step 3: lift the Fine filter up
NOTE:
When following this procedure from step1 to step 3, the filter system will be removed;
when following it from Step 3 to Step 1, the filter system will be installed.
Filter assembly
For best performance and results, the filter assembly must be cleaned regularly. The filter efficiently
removes food particles from the wash water, allowing it to be recirculated during the cycle. For
this reason, it is a good idea to remove the larger food particles trapped in the filter after each
wash cycle by rinsing the semicircular filter and cup under running water. To remove the filter
assembly, pull on the cup handle in the upward direction. The entire filter assembly should be
cleaned once a week.
To clean the coarse filter and the fine filter, use a cleaning brush. Then, reassemble the filter
parts as shown in the figures left and reinsert the entire assembly in the dishwasher, positioning
in its seat and pressing downward.
The dishwasher must never be used without the filters. Improper replacement of the filter may
reduce the performance level of the appliance and damage dishes and utensils.
Never run the dishwasher without the filters in place. When cleaning the filters, don't knock on
them. Otherwise, the filters could be contorted and the performance of dishwasher could be
debased.
13
To clean the edge around the door, you should use only a soft warm, damp rag. To prevent
penetration of water into the door lock and electrical components, do not use a spray cleaner
of any kind.
Also, never use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads on the outer surfaces because they will
scratch the fini sh. Some papers towels can also scratch or leave marks on the surface.
Never use a spray cleaner to clean the door panel for it could damage the door lock and electrical components. It is not allowed
to use the abrasive agent or some paper towel becauseof the risk of scratching or leaving spots on the stainless steel surface.
After every wash, turn off the water supply to the
appliance and l eave the door slightly ajar so that
moisture and odors are not trapped inside.
Before cleaning or performing maintenance, always
remove the plug from the socket. Do not run risks.
To clean the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher,
do not use solvents or abrasive cleaning products.
Rather, use only a cloth and warm soapy water.
To remove spots or stains from the surface of the
interior, use a cloth dampened with water and a little
white vinegar, or a cleaning product made specifically
for dishwashers.
When you go on holiday, it is recommened that you run a
wash cycle with the dishwasher empty and then remove
the plug from the socket, turn off the water supply and
leave the door of the appliance slightly ajar. This will help
the seals last longer and prevent odors from forming
within the appliance.
If the appliance must be moved, try to keep it in the vertical
position.If absolutely necessary, it can be positioned on
its back.
One of the factors that cause odors to form in the
dishwasher is food that remains trapped in the seals.
Periodic cleaning w ith a damp sponge will prevent this
from occurring.
Please see the rating label to know the rating voltage and connect the dishwasher to appropriate power supply, which has a
required fuse 16 amp. Time delay fuse or circuit breaker recommended and provide separate circuit serving only this appliance.
After making sure that the voltage and the frequency values for the current in the home
correspond to those on the rating plate and that the electrical system is sized for the
maximum voltage on the rating plate, insert the plug into an electrical socket which is
earthed properly. If the electrical socket to which the appliance must be connected is not
appropriate for the pl ug , replace the socket,rather than using a adaptors or the like as
they could cause overheating and burns.
Insure proper ground exists before use
„ This appliance must be grounded. In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding will
reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance of electric current. This
appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriateoutlet that is installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
14
„ Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk
of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service representative if you
are in doubt whether the appliance is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided with the appliance; If it is not fit for the outlet. Have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician.
In order to avoid that there is more water staying in the inlet hose,
please close the hydrant after using.(For the models: no safety inlet hose.)
Connect the cold water supply hose to a threaded 3/4(inch) connector and make sure that it is
fastened tightly in place.
If the water pipes are new or have not been used for an extended period of time, let the water
run to make sure that the water is clear and free of impurities. If this precaution is not taken,
there is a risk that the water inlet can get blocked and damage the appliance.
The water supply to the appliance can also be connected to the house hot water line
(centralized system, heating system),as long as it does not exceed a temperature of 60 C.
In this case, the wash cycle time will be shortened by about 15 minutes and the wash
efficiency slightly reduced.
The connection must be made to the hot water line following the same procedures as those
for the connection to the cold water line.
Position the appliance in the desired location. The back should rest against the wall behind it, and the sides, along the adjacent
cabinets or wall. The dishwasher is equipped with water supply and drain hoses that can be positioned to the right or the left to
facilitate proper installation.
Dishwasher must be level for proper dish rack operation and wash performance.
1 Place level on door and rack track inside the tub as shown to check that the
dishwasher is level.
2 When level the dishwasher, please pay attention not to let the dishwasher tip over.
Insert the drain hose into a drain pipe with a minimum diameter of 40 mm, or let it run into the sink, making sure to avoid bending
or crimping it. Use the special plastic support that comes with the appliance. The free end of the hose must be at a height
between 400 and 1000mm and must not be immersed in water.

If the sink is 1000 higher from the floor, the excess water in hoses cannot
be drained directly into the sink. It will be necessary to drain excess
water from hoses into a bowl or suitable container that is held outside and lower
than the sink.
In order to avoid more water staying in the inlet hose,
please close the hydrant after using.(For the models: no safety inlet hose.)
