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 5 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! The machine is manufactured and labelled for recycling. Child Safety! Child safety lock Child-safe dishwashing A child safety lock is fitted to prevent children from opening the door of the dishwasher. 1. Activate the child safety lock by pressing in the door latch and turning the screw slot (up in the left hand corner) to the vertical position with a screwdriver. 2. To open the door, you must press the white plastic latch (illustrated below) to the left at the same time as pressing the catch upwards. Reset by returning the screw slot to the horizontal position. Closed • Use the knife basket, or knife holder, for all long/sharp items. Open • Always close the door and start the program immediately once dishwasher detergent has been added. • Keep children away from the dishwasher when it is open. There might be remains of dishwasher detergent present! • Do not allow children to use or play with the dishwasher. Always take particular care when the door is open. Protect your children! - Dishwasher detergent is corrosive! WARNING: Dishwasher detergents are strongly alkaline. They can be extremely dangerous if swallowed. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and keep children away from the dishwasher when the door is open. Check that the detergent compartment is empty after completion of the wash cycle. Store dishwasher detergent and rinse aid out of the reach of children! Should dishwasher detergent be swallowed, immediately drink one or two glasses of milk or water. Do not attempt to induce vomiting. Contact a doctor! Should dishwasher detergent come into contact with the eyes, rinse (for at least 15 minutes) with copious amounts of water. 7 Parts of the dishwasher* 1. Upper basket 2. Spray arms 3. Lower basket 4.

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. 11 NB! Only use dishwasher detergent Detergent for washing by hand cannot be used as the build-up of foam impedes the machine’s performance. Press the main power switch Select program Select a program by pressing the program selector one or more times until the required program is displayed. Auto wash The dishwasher detects how soiled the dishes are and adjusts water consumption and temperature accordingly. Heavy wash The Heavy Wash program should be used for heavily soiled dishes, e.g. saucepans, pots and gratin dishes. If there is still space in the machine after loading such items, you can add plates etc. Normal wash Used for washing normally soiled dishes such as plates, serving dishes, cups and glasses, etc. For washing normally soiled dishes use the Normal wash program with normal temperature and normal drying . To save more water and energy use economy temperature and economy drying. 12 Fragile dishes can be washed using the Delicate wash program. Deselect the heat dry if you want to be particularly careful. See also the chapter on Fragile dishes. Quick wash Select Quick Wash if the dishes are very lightly soiled. This program is used for very lightly soiled glass and china, e.g. coffee cups. Rinse & Hold For rinsing the dishes while waiting for the machine to be filled. If you wish to use additional options, continue to point 5. Otherwise you can now start the machine, see point 6. Options Select options To select an option, press one of the option buttons Temperature The machine will now count down the time each hour until the machine starts, and then show the remaining wash time in the display window. • To cancel Delayed start, press and hold the Start/Stop button for 3 seconds. With the temperature option button you can select the wash temperature. Program Heavy wash: Normal wash: Quick wash: Normal °C 70 65 60 Eco °C 55 45 30 The temperature symbol will light up if you have chosen the normal temperature. This selection will remain in force until a change is made. Drying If you require a better drying result, press the option button Drying to select normal drying. A symbol in the form of three wavy lines lights. If you want a program with Eco drying – press it again and the symbol will go out. The fan dries the dishes even if Eco dry was selected, although not in the Quick Wash program. Delayed start • If you want the machine to start up later, press the ‘Delayed start’ option button, you can delay the start 0.5-9 h. A clock symbol and the number of hours until start will appear in the display window. • The ninth time you press the button the selection will be aborted: the clock symbol will disappear and the display window will return to displaying expected program duration. • Press the Start/Stop button or make a further selection. 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 again. 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.

Cold water connection approx. 15°C. 17 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 If you have a dishwasher with a water softener, you may need to change the setting, depending on the hardness level of the water. Phone your local Water Board to check the water hardness in your area. The dishwasher is set for low water hardness on delivery. START STOP 1. Switch off the dishwasher with the main switch. 2. Press the main switch while holding in the Start/Stop switch. Release the Start/Stop button. PROG START STOP 3. 4. Press the Program button from one to nine times depending on the hardness of your water. A single digit, 0 (machines without water softeners and machines with water softeners and low water hardness), 1, 2, 3, etc., will appear in the display window have a low hardness set to 0, 1, 2, 3, etc., No. ˚dH ˚fH 0 0-5 0-9 1 6-8 9-14 2 9-11 15-20 3 12-14 21-25 4 15-19 26-34 5 20-24 35-43 6 25-29 44-52 7 30-39 53-70 8 40-49 71-88 9 50+ 89+ Press the Start/Stop button and the setting will be stored until next time you want to change it. 23 Fault indications Display Type of fault Action Phone service flashes Too much water in the dishwasher Fault with water inlet flashes Valve leakage flashes Blocked drain flashes Clogged filter Switch off the water tap and contact service See ‘Possible causes’ in chapter Troubleshooting Clean the filters, see chapter Cleaning flashes Check that the water is on To remove the fault indications from the display, turn the main switch off and then on again. 24 Troubleshooting Problems Possible causes Action The dishes are not clean. • The spray arms are not rotating. • Lift off the arms and clean. • Old dishwasher detergent.

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 2 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. Max 950 mm Min 350 mm 30 Max 950 mm Max 950 mm Min 350 mm Min 350 mm Positioning the machine A.
