"Auto" washing programme
During the "Auto" washing programme the
amount of soil on the dishes is determined by
how cloudy the water is.
If the appliance is partially loaded and the
dishes lightly soiled, the "prewash", "main
wash", and "rinse" phases of the programme
are shorter and the water consumption level is
lower.
If the appliance is fully loaded and the dishes
heavily soiled, the "prewash", "main wash", and
"rinse" phases of the programme are longer
and the water consumption level is higher.
For this reason the programme duration, water
and energy consumption levels can vary within
the stated range for "Auto" programme (see
"Washing programmes chart").
During the "Auto" programme the temperature
of the main wash water is also automatically

adjusted between 45°C and 70°C depending
on the amount of soil on the dishes.
First use
Before using your dishwasher for the first time:
• Ensure that the electrical and water connections comply with the installation instructions
• Remove all packaging from inside the appliance
• Set the water softener
• Pour 1 litre of water inside the salt container
and then fill with dishwasher salt
• Fill the rinse aid dispenser
If you want to use combi detergent tablets such
as: "3 in 1", "4 in 1", "5 in 1" etc... set the MultiTab function (see "Multi-Tab function").
Set the water softener
The dishwasher is equipped with a water
softener designed to remove minerals and salts
from the water supply, which would have a detrimental or adverse effect on the operation of
the appliance.
The higher the content of these minerals and
salts, the harder your water is. Water hardness
is measured in equivalent scales, German deWater hardness
grees (°dH), French degrees (°TH) and mmol/
l (millimol per litre - international unit for the
hardness of water).
The softener should be adjusted according to
the hardness of the water in your area. Your
local Water Authority can advise you on the
hardness of the water in your area.

– 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 non stick coatings have a tendency to retain water drops;
these items will not dry as well as porcelain

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.
CAUTION!
When the washing programme has finished, it
is recommended that the dishwasher is unplugged and the water tap turned off.

We recommend every 3 months to run the wash
programme for heavy soiled dishes using detergent but without dishes.
If residues of soil have clogged the holes in the
spray arms, remove them with a cocktail stick.
External 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....).
Prolonged periods of nonoperation
If you are not using the machine for any prolonged period of time you are advised to:
1. Unplug the appliance and then turn off the
water.

2. Leave the door ajar to prevent the formation of any unpleasant smells.
3. Leave the inside of the machine clean.
Frost precautions
Avoid placing the machine in a location where
the temperature is below 0°C. If this is
unavoidable, empty the machine, close the appliance door, disconnect the water inlet pipe
and empty it.
1. Unplug it.
2. Turn the water tap off.

Installation
WARNING!
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.

The dishwasher must not be connected to open
water appliances or instantaneous water heaters. This dishwasher may be fed with either hot
(max. 60°) or cold water. Nevertheless we advise you a cold water supply.

WARNING!
Only use, for connection to the water mains,
new hose-set; old hose-set must not be reused.
CAUTION!
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.
Water inlet hose with safety
valve
Connect the inlet hose to a water tap with an
external thread of 3/4”.
After connecting the double-walled water inlet
hose, the safety valve is next to the tap.
If the water inlet hose leaks, the safety valve
cuts off the water supply.
WARNING!
The electrical cable for the safety valve is in the
double-walled water inlet hose and is live.
Therefore do not immerse the water inlet hose
or the safety valve in water.
Take care when installing the water inlet hose
. Place the water inlet hose in such a way that
it is always lower than the bottom edge of the
safety valve.
If the water inlet hose or the safety valve is
damaged, remove the mains plug immediately.
CAUTION!
A water inlet hose with safety valve MUST only
be replaced by your local Service Force Centre.

sink trap spigot, the entire
plastic membrane (A)
must be removed. Failure to remove all the membrane will result in food
particles building up over
time eventually blocking
the dishwasher drain hose
spigot.
If you use a drain hose extension the total
length should not be longer than 4 metres.
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.
Electrical connection
CAUTION!
Safety standards require the appliance to be
earthed.
Prior to using the appliance for the first time,
ensure that the rated voltage and type of supply
on the rating plate match that of the supply
where the appliance is to be installed.
The fuse rating is also to be found on the rating
plate.
Always plug the mains plug into a correctly installed shockproof socket. Multi-way plugs,
connectors and extension cables must not be
used.
This could constitute a fire hazard through overheating.
If necessary, have the domestic wiring system
socket replaced. In case that the electrical cable has to be replaced, contact your local Service Force centre.
The plug must be accessible after the appliance
has been installed.
Never unplug the appliance by pulling on the
cable. Always pull the plug.
The manufacturer accepts no liability for failure
to observe the above safety precautions.

Fitting under a counter
IMPORTANT!
Carefully follow the instructions on the enclosed
template for building in the dishwasher and fitting the furniture panel.
WARNING!
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).
This dishwasher is designed to be fitted under
a kitchen counter or work surface.
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.
Be sure that once the appliance has been installed, it is easily accessible for the service
engineer in the event that a repair is required.
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. (See enclosed template).
