Detergent
To Fill the Detergent Compartment
1. Push the latch to open the
compartment.
2. Add the required amount of
detergent. The main detergent
compartment “b” (figure 2)
has lines to allow for specific
amounts of detergent. These
are marked at either 15 cm3 or
9
Fig.2
25 cm3, to be used depending on how dirty the dishes are.
If your dishes are in need of an intensive wash, then add 5
cm3 of detergent into the prewash section of the
compartment “a” (figure 1).
3. Then close the detergent compartment lid until the latch
locks.
Please note: You should only use detergents designed
specifically for use in dishwashers.
Combination detergents (e.g. 3-in-1 tablets) must not be used in
any quick wash or half load programme.
If using dishwasher tablets, always use the detergent
compartment, do not put them in the main body of the dishwasher
or in the cutlery basket. The solubility of dishwasher tablets can
vary depending on the temperature and duration of the
programme. As a result, it is recommended that powder
detergents should be used in the shorter programmes to allow
better performance.
CDA recommends the use of separate detergent, rinse aid and
dishwasher salt rather than combination tablets as separates
achieve better wash performance.
If you do use combination detergents, add salt and rinse aid to the
dishwasher and then adjust the water hardness setting and rinse
aid setting to the minimum. When you then use separate
detergents again, you should fill the salt and rinse aid
compartments, adjust the water hardness setting to the maximum
and run an empty wash, then adjust the water hardness setting
and the rinse aid setting to the appropriate level.
10
Salt
To ensure the best efficiency, the
dishwasher needs soft water. Hard
water means that lime residues remain
on the dishes and the interior of the
dishwasher, affecting performance. The
softener system is designed to remove
the ions that make the water hard to
provide the best quality wash
performance. This is achieved by using
dishwasher salt.
Fig.3
To Add Dishwasher Salt, Follow the
Steps Below:
1. Remove the lower dishwasher
basket and then unscrew the
salt compartment cap, as shown
in figure 3.
2. Fill the compartment with
Fig.4
dishwasher salt (do not use
table salt), carefully to prevent unnecessary spillage (figure
4). Before first use, you should fill the compartment with 1kg
of dishwasher salt and then fill up the salt compartment
with water (up to the brim of the compartment) as shown in
figure 4.
3. Replace the cap and the lower basket.
When the salt warning light on the control panel illuminates, you
should refill the salt compartment with salt only – do not add water
to the salt compartment after the first use.
Important: You should run a prewash programme immediately
after adding dishwasher salt, to prevent any damage to the
dishwasher systems.
Only fill the salt compartment with water on first use.
11
Softener Adjustment
The efficiency of your dishwasher
depends on the softness of the tap
water.
To ensure best efficiency, the
dishwasher is equipped with a system
that reduces the hardness in the mains
water supply. The efficiency will increase
when the system is correctly set. To find
out the water hardness level of your
water supply you can use the test strip
supplied or alternatively contact your
local water board.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Open the testing strip (figure 5).
Run water through the tap for one
minute.
Hold the testing strip in water for
one second.
Remove from the water and
shake the test strip to remove
excess water.
Wait for one minute.
Check the number of marks on
the strip to see the level of water
hardness.
If the hardness of the water you use is
above 63 dE or if you are using well
water; you are recommended to contact
your local water board to confirm the
water hardness level and to use filter and
water refinement devices.
Please note: The level of water

Installation
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not install this appliance if it is
damaged in any way. Installing a
damaged appliance may
invalidate the warranty.
The water supply tap should be
located in an adjacent cupboard
so that it can be accessed after
installation.
Ensure the appliance is level by
adjusting the feet as necessary.
The dishwasher is equipped with
an adjustable rear foot that can
be raised or lowered by means
of an adjustment screw, located
in the centre of the kick plate.
Only use the water inlet supplied
with the appliance.
If the water pressure is above 10
bar, a pressure relief valve
should be used.
After connecting the water
supply, check to ensure there
are no leaks.
The water outlet can either be
connected to a water drain or to
a sink outlet spigot. This
connection should be at a
minimum of 50 cm and a
maximum of 110 cm from the
floor. The drain hose should be
no longer than 4m in length to
ensure good performance from
the dishwasher.
To prevent syphoning, ensure
25
•
that the water outlet is not pushed too far into the waste
standpipe. The lowest part of the water outlet should be
level with the bottom basket of the dishwasher.
When connecting to the sink, ensure that the waste pipe
runs higher than the level of the sink bowl to prevent
syphoning.
Fitting the Integrated Appliance Door
Where non-standard integrated appliance doors are supplied,
additional fitting instructions are required to ensure compatibility
with this product.
The machine is supplied with a fitting template and these
instructions should be followed as normal.
However, the fitting template needs to be located lower down the
fascia door; this is shown below.
The amount of offset, Y, depends on
the height of the fascia door and can
be calculated as X = 723mm.
For example, if you have a 731mm tall
fascia door and are fitting a door to
your dishwasher,
then Y = 731-723 = 8mm.
Ensure that the hinge tensioners are
adjusted to balance the weight of the
door.
