Before doing your first wash
Read the directions of use
Read the directions of use before starting to
use your machine, especially the Safety,
Child Safety and Basic Course sections.
Take care with certain materials
Read the section ‘Fragile dishes’ before
washing china with unglazed decoration or
other household goods made of plastic,
wood or crystal requiring careful treatment.
Do you have a machine with a
water softener?
If you are unsure whether your machine has a
water softener, see the illustration. If there is a
cover cap in the bottom of the machine, it has
a water softener and needs to be filled with
salt. See the Salt chapter.
Cover for the salt compartment
Check the door
Check that the door of the dishwasher fits
properly: open the door a little and let it go.
Does it stay exactly where you released it?
If not, you should check the installation
instructions or consult the installer.
Check water hardness level
Phone your local Water Board to check the
water hardness in your area. This is important
when dispensing dishwasher detergent and
rinse aid.
Machine with water softener
Once you know the water hardness, adjust
the water softener (see Settings chapter).
Before you begin washing, you may also
need to fill up the salt (see Salt chapter).
*NB!
After filling, there may be a short delay before
the signal light goes out.
CAUTION!
Never pour dishwasher detergent into the
salt compartment. This will damage the
water softener

Safety
General
Overfill protection
• Read and keep the directions for use!
• Installation of water, drainage and electricity must be carried out by a qualified
professional.
• Do not use the dishwasher for any purposes other than those stated in these
directions for use.
• Do not load the dishwasher door or the
dishwasher baskets with anything other
than dishes.
• Only use dishwasher detergent!
• Place knives and other sharp objects so
that they cannot cause injury to people or
damage the dishwasher.
• The appliance is not intended for use by
young children or infirm persons unless
they have been adequately supervised by a
responsible person to ensure that they can
use the appliances safety.
• Young children should be supervised to
ensure that they do not play with the
appliance.
The overfill protector starts pumping out
water and closes off the water intake if the
machine’s water level exceeds the normal
level. If the overfill protector starts up, shut
off the water supply and phone for service.
See ‘Troubleshooting’ on pages 25-27.
Never put dishes containing solvent residue
in the machine due to risk of explosion.
Neither may dishes containing ashes, wax
or lubricating grease be washed in the
dishwasher.
Winter storage/Transport
Store the machine away from frost.
Avoid long journeys in extreme cold. Transport the machine in an upright position or
lying on its back.
6
Cleaning
Only use a slightly damp cloth for cleaning
around the edge of the door. Do not use a
spray bottle! Water can penetrate into the
lock and come into contact with the electrical components.
Packaging materials
Sort at source in accordance with the recommendations of your local authority.
Scrapping
When the time comes for the machine to be
scrapped, it should immediately be rendered unusable. Remove the plug and cut
off the lead as short as possible.
Contact your refuse collection department
or your local authority for information on the
correct way to dispose of the machine!

Basic Course
Below are step by step instructions to help you
achieve the best possible dishwashing results.
Load the baskets correctly!
Thanks to Super Cleaning System™, you
do not need to rinse the dishes under
running water. Scrape off large food
particles before loading the machine.
Convenient and environmentally friendly!
Place glasses, cups, bowls, side plates and
saucers in the upper basket, wine glasses
should be placed on the wine glass shelf,
and knives in the knife stand if present..
NB!
Ensure that all soiled surfaces face inwards
or downwards!
Detergent dosage
Detergent should be dispensed in accordance
with the water’s hardness level.
Follow the dosage instructions on the detergent package. If your dishwasher is fitted with
a water softener, dispense as for soft water.
Pour the dishwasher detergent into the
dishwasher detergent compartment. There
is one compartment for pre-wash and one
for main wash, see Dispenser. Phone the
dishwasher detergent manufacturer if you
have any questions regarding the detergent.
Dishwasher tablets
Halve the tablet if it is difficult to close the
dispenser cover. There is a risk that the
dishwasher detergent will not break down
properly to give the correct dosage if the
cover is tight and cannot be opened
correctly.
Place dinner plates, side plates, serving
dishes, saucepans and cutlery (in the cutlery basket) in the lower basket.
Stand the cutlery with handles downward
and as spread out as possible. Ensure that
spoons are not resting inside each other.
Do not put cutlery made of different materials, e.g. silver and stainless steel, in the
same compartment (risk of stains).
Check that the spray arms are able to move
freely.
See Fragile dishes, if you want to wash
articles that may be fragile.
3in1/ Combined detergent
NB!
Read through the directions for these
products carefully. If anything is unclear,
contact the dishwasher detergent
manufacturer.
CAUTION!
Protect your children!
- Dishwasher detergent is corrosive!
NB!
Only use dishwasher detergent
Detergent for washing by hand cannot be
used as the build-up of foam impedes the
machine’s performance.

13
Press Start/Stop and close
the door
The dishwasher will now start. It manages
the entire wash automatically. Ensure that
the door is properly closed or the machine
will not start.
Changing options
If you want to change program after having
started the machine, press the Start/Stop
button for three seconds. Then select a new
program and then press the Start/Stop button

Do you want to load more dishes?
Open the door; the machine stops automatically, put in the dishes, close the door and
the dishwasher will continue from where it
left off.
If the machine is switched off
from the main switch
(or in the event of a power cut) before the
washing program has been completed, the
interrupted program will continue when
power comes back on.
NB!
If the power is switched off, or if the door is
open for more than 2 minutes during drying,
the program is interrupted.
7
After dishwashing
Once the machine has finished, it is only
drawing standing current. Should you wish
to disconnect the current completely, just
switch off at the main switch. Turn off the
water tap if the machine is not to be used for
an extended period, e.g. during holidays.
14
Eco-dishwashing
Only wash with a full load
Waiting to run the wash until the machine is
full saves energy.
Wash at a lower temperature
If the load is only lightly soiled, you can
lower the temperature.
Select program with Eco drying
If you select an Auto/Heavy/Normal or
QuickWash program with Eco dry, this will
save energy. You will get a better drying
result if you leave the door slightly open
after the end of the program.
Do not rinse before dishwashing
Thanks to the dishwasher’s Super Cleaning
System™ you do not need to rinse the
dishes under running water before loading
them into the machine.
Choose environmentally-friendly
dishwasher detergent
Read environmental declarations on the
package!
Connect to cold water supply
If the machine is connected to the cold
water, the operating time will be longer, as it
takes longer to heat up the water. However,
the extended washing time means that it is
possible to operate a program with a lower
washing temperature and still achieve the
same results.
15
Fragile dishes
A number of household goods are not suitable for machine washing. There can be
many reasons for this. Certain materials
cannot withstand intense heat, others can
be damaged by the dishwasher detergent.
Fragile decoration
China with decoration on top of the glaze
(the article has a rough feel) should not be
machine washed.
Wood
Wooden articles should only be machine
washed if they are labelled as dishwasher
proof.
Aluminium
Aluminium can be dulled by machine washing. However, good quality aluminium
saucepans can be machine washed, although a reduction in lustre should be expected.
Crystal/ glass
Place the articles so that they do not knock
together during the wash. Use the lowest
possible wash temperature and the shortest
possible program. Do not heat dry! Antique
and very fragile items should not be machine washed.
Glass which is machine washed at high
temperatures can in time develop a grey
film which cannot be removed. Wash fine
glass at the lowest temperature and with a
low dosage of dishwasher detergent.
Silver
Silver and stainless items should not come
into contact with each other as the silver
can discolour.
Cutlery with glued handles
Certain types of adhesive cannot withstand
machine washing. In such cases the handles
can come loose.
16
Plastic
Certain types of plastic cannot withstand
the high temperature generated in machine
dishwashing.
To protect plastic articles
Select a program with Economy
temperature and Economy drying.

Display
Display window
When you have selected the program, the
display shows the length of time the
program took the last time it was used.
When you have started the machine, the
display window shows how much of the
program time remains.
This time can vary a little from one occasion
to another depending on the temperature of
the inlet water, the amount of dishes, the
ambient temperature, etc.
While the program is running, the time is
counted down and the remaining program
time is displayed in the window.
Note!
During the first use of each wash program,
the time display can be slightly misleading
as the machine is estimating the remaining
cycle time. The time displayed the next time
that program is started is an estimate based
on how long the previous cycle took to
complete. If the program takes longer than
estimated, 1 minute will continue to show in
the display until the program is finished.
The corrected time will be displayed the
next time the cycle is started.
18
Cleaning
Cleaning
The dishwasher’s inner container is made of
stainless steel and is kept clean through
normal use. However, if you have calciferous
(hard) water, lime deposits can form in the
dishwasher. In this case, run a normal wash
program with two tablespoons of citric acid in
the dishwasher detergent compartment.
Coarse filter
The coarse filter collects large food particles which cannot pass the outflow pump.
Lift out and empty the coarse filter as
necessary. Don’t forget to replace it!
Coarse
filter
Tubular
strainer
Fine filter
The residue collected on the fine filter is
automatically rinsed off with each wash.
The fine filter should still be cleaned once
or twice a year.
1. Remove the fine filter by first turning the
filter’s tubular strainer anti-clockwise and
then lifting the tubular strainer and the
coarse filter straight up.
2. Clean with a dishwashing brush. Ensure
that the edges are properly sealed when
replacing the fine filter.
Fine filter
Drain pump
The pump can be accessed from the inside
of the machine.
1. Always remove the plug from the wall
socket before you clean the pump.
2. Remove the coarse screen first by pressing together the two lugs and pulling the
screen upwards.
3. Now loosen the tubular part of the screen
by turning it anticlockwise and removing the
fine screen.
4. Finally remove the small adapter to the
left of the bottom drain.
5. It’s possible, by inserting your finger in
the hole, to turn the pump impeller and
remove any blockage.
6. Refit the adapter and screens.
7. Insert the plug in the wall socket.
Pump
plug
19
If you still cannot start the machine and a
humming noise can be heard, then the
overfilling protection has been activated.
• Shutoff the water
• Remove the plug from the wall socket
• Call Service
CAUTION!
Do not forget to replace thepump plug.
Spray arms
The holes and bearings can occasionally
become clogged.
1. Pull the lower spray arm straight up to
release it.
2. Scrape away the debris with a needle or
similar. The spray arms also have holes on
the underside.
To release the upper spray arm, the upper
basket must be removed.
3. Pull out the basket and turn the basket
stop outwards on both rails (see picture).
The basket can now be removed.
4. Remove the upper spray arm in the same
way as the lower arm and clean it.
Door
When cleaning the edge around the door,
use only a slightly damp cloth, possibly with
a little detergent. Do not use a spray bottle
or similar around the door catch. This is to
ensure that water does not penetrate into
the door catch and come into contact with
the electrical components.
CAUTION!
Do not use a spray bottle or similar around
the door catch.
Tip!
In order to prevent bad odours in the dishwasher, clean the strips and corners with a
dish brush and low-lather detergent.
20
Rinse aid
Pour in rinse aid
Select dosage
Rinse aid, helps quicken the drying
process.
The dispenser is usually set at 1= soft water.
However, depending on the water hardness, it may be necessary to change the
dosage.
Machines with indicator on the panel
When the rinse aid has run out and more is
needed, the rinse aid symbol on the panel
lights up*.
To fill with rinse aid:
1. Turn and lift up the cover of the rinse aid
compartment to the right of the dispenser.
This is where you top up and set the
amount of rinse aid to be dispensed in each
wash.
2. Carefully pour in rinse aid up to the knob
for dosage setting.
Alter dosage if required. Do not forget to
close the cover.
*NB!
After filling there may be a short delay
before the signal light goes out.
Open the rinse aid cover . Here you will find
the dispenser’s adjustment dial. Settings 1-6:
the harder the water, the higher the dosage.
When the water hardness exceeds 10-12 odH
you should use rinse aid with citric acid (acid
rinse aid) if the machine does not have a water
softening filter. If the machine has a water
softening filter, dispense as for soft water.
Too much rinse aid can lead to the build-up
of foam. If your water is particularly soft, you
can dilute the rinse aid (1 part rinse aid, 1
part water).
Too much rinse aid can cause streaks on
the dishes, while too little can result in water
stains.
Machines with refill indicator
There is a refill indicator in the middle of the
dispenser (see picture). If the refill indicator
is totally black, there is sufficient rinse aid.
However, if the indicator has a more
transparent appearance, you need to top up
with rinse aid (see above).
Open
Refill indicator
Closed
Cover for rinse aid
Open by turning and lifting the cover!
21
Salt
(applies to dishwashers with water softeners)
Pour in salt
Before using a dishwasher with a water
softening filter, you must fill the salt compartment with salt. Use coarse salt or special salt for dishwashers.
Cover for the salt compartment
It is best to fill with salt when you are about
to do a wash, as the dishwasher needs to
be rinsed out immediately after filling.
Proceed as follows the first time:
1. First unscrew the cover as illustrated.
2. Place the funnel, which is supplied with
the dishwasher, into the compartment’s filler
hole. First pour in approximately 1 litre of
water.
3. Then fill the compartment with max 1.5 kg
salt.
4. Wipe away excess salt so that the cover
can be properly screwed into place.
5. Run a Normal wash program so that any
salt in the machine is rinsed away.
When the salt runs out, the salt symbol on
the display* lights up (this function is not
available on all machines). Unscrew the
cover and fill the compartment with salt.
Water is only needed on the first occasion!
Wipe clean and screw back in place. Run a
Normal wash program so that any salt is
rinsed away.
The indicator is not working
If the indicator is not working, this may be
because the float, which is positioned under
the cover, has become stuck in salt residue.
The float can be reached through the green
arm located under the cover of the salt
compartment. Move the float arm up and
down to loosen it. Once the float has been
loosened, press it down again.
Models without a salt symbol in the display
show green in the salt compartment cover
when there is sufficient salt.
22
*NB!
After filling, there may be a short delay
before the signal light goes out.
CAUTION!
Never pour dishwasher detergent into the
salt compartment. It will destroy the water
softener!
Settings
Setting water hardness

B. Freestanding
A freestanding dishwasher must be fitted with
anti-tilt. This comprises two fastening irons
which are screwed into place as illustrated.
The dishwasher is then pushed in so that
the fastening irons grip onto the rear feet.
The dishwasher cannot now tilt in the event
a load is placed on the open door. If the
dishwasher is to be fully freestanding, both
side panels and the work top should be
fitted. These accessories can be purchased
where you purchased the dishwasher.
Freestanding installation
C. Semi-freestanding
If the dishwasher is positioned so that either
side is visible, a side panel can be fitted.
These accessories can be purchased
where you purchased the dishwasher.
CAUTION!
D. Machines with wooden door
Stronger door springs are available for
purchase for machines with a fitted wooden
door. Springs are available for various
weights and sizes of wooden door. Door
springs can be purchased from the retailer
who sold you the dishwasher.

A fully freestanding dishwasher must be
fitted with anti-tilt.
Tip!
A machine with side panels and a counter
top (freestanding) can, of course, also be
installed as a built-in unit.
29
Connection to water
CAUTION!
There must be a shut-off tap on the water
supply pipe. The shut-off tap should be
positioned above the work surface or at the
front of the sink unit.
The lead must be disconnected or the socket
voltage-free while the work is carried out!
Connection to drainage
The water supply pipe has a connection
with a 1/2” or 3/4” internal thread depending
on country.
When the installation is complete, the shutoff tap should be opened to allow the pressure to settle for a while and to check that
all connections are tight.
NB!
It is recommended that connection should
be to cold water.
The drain hose may be lengthened by a
maximum of 3 m (the total length of the
drain hose may not exceed 4.5 m). Any
connections and connecting pipes must
have an internal diameter of at least 16 mm.
However, the drain hose should ideally be
replaced with a new hose without joins.
Connection to electricity
A dishwasher fitted with a lead and plug
must be connected to an earthed socket.
Repairs and maintenance relating to safety
or performance must be carried out by a
qualified professional.
No part of the drain hose may be more than
950 mm above the bottom of the machine.
The hose must not be routed directly to the
floor drain or similar. In such cases, the
hose can act as a siphon and empty the
dishwasher.
Technical data
See the type plate on the right hand side of
the door.
Connection to drainage
NB!
The hose must be fastened level with the
underside of the sink unit.
The hose must always discharge at least
350 mm above the bottom of the machine.

Illustration 3
Max 3 m
Illustration 1
When the drain hose is routed to a
connection nipple at the sink’s water trap
(see illustration 1), note that the hose must
be fastened level with the underside of the
sink unit – otherwise the dishwater from the
sink can run down into the dishwasher. The
drain hose is threaded onto a cone-shaped
connecting pipe at the sink unit’s water trap.
The cone-shaped pipe must be cut to an
internal diameter of at least 16 mm. For
other alternative connections, see
illustrations 2 and 3.
