Prior to using for the first time
Before using your dishwasher for the first time:
1. Ensure that the electrical and water connections comply with the
installation instructions
2. Remove all packaging from inside the appliance
3. Set the water softener
4. Pour 1 litre of water inside the salt container and then fill with
dishwasher salt
5. Fill the rinse aid dispenser.
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 degrees,
French degrees and mmol/l (millimol per litre).
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.
The water softener must be set in both ways: manually, using the water
hardness dial and electronically, using the function buttons on the
control panel.

Filling with dishwasher salt
Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers.
All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in a
dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water softener.
Only fill with salt just before starting one of the complete washing
programmes.
This will prevent any grains of salt or salty water, which may have
been spilt, remaining on the bottom of the machine for any period
of time, which may cause corrosion.
To fill:
1. Open the door, remove the lower basket and unscrew the cap of
the salt container by turning it anticlockwise.
2. Pour 1 litre of water inside the container (this is necessary only
before filling with salt for the first time).
3. Using the funnel provided, pour in the
LE
SA UT
salt until the container is full.
ZO LT
SA LZ
4. Replace the cap making sure that
SA L
SE
there is no trace of salt on the screw
thread or on the gasket.
5. Replace on the cap tightly turning it
clockwise until it stops with a click.
SR14
The salt container will require topping up periodically. You are
reminded of this by the salt indicator light on the control panel which
comes on when the salt has finished.
The salt indicator light on the control panel can remain
illuminated for 2-6 hours after the salt has been replenished,
assuming the dishwasher remains switched on. If you are using
salts that take longer to dissolve then this can take longer. The
function of the machine is not affected.
Do not worry if water over flows from the unit when filling with salt,
this is quite normal.

Rinse aid
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring
thorough rinsing, and spot and streak free drying. The dispenser, which
is positioned inside the door, holds about 110 ml of rinse aid, which is
sufficient for 16 - 40 dishwashing programmes, depending upon the
dosage setting.
Filling with rinse aid
1. Open the container by pressing the release button (A).
2. Add the rinse aid until the container is completely full. The
maximum level for filling is indicated by “max”.
Ensure that the lid is closed after every refill.
Clean up any rinse aid spilt during filling with an absorbent cloth
to avoid excess foaming during the next wash.
Only use branded rinse aid for dishwashers. Never fill the rinse aid
dispenser with any other substances (e.g. dishwasher cleaning
agent, liquid detergent). This would damage the appliance.

According to the finish and drying results obtained, adjust the dose of
rinse aid by means of the 6 position selector (position 1 minimum
dosage, position 6 maximum dosage).
The dose is factory set in position 4.
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.

The cutlery basket
Long bladed knives stored in an upright position are a potential
hazard.
Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving knives must
be positioned horizontally in the upper basket.
Take care when loading or unloading sharp items such as
knives.
Forks and spoons should be placed in the removable cutlery basket
with the handles facing downwards and the knives with their handles
facing upwards.
If the handles protrude from the bottom of the basket, obstructing the
lower spray arm, load the cutlery with the handles facing upwards.
Mix spoons with other cutlery to prevent them from sticking together.
To unload your dishwasher more easily, you can take the cutlery basket
out of the lower basket and unfold it. This makes it easier to remove
small pieces of cutlery.
Important note! To prevent the full cutlery basket from inadvertently
unfolding when being taken out, place your hand right round the twopiece handle and hold it firmly.
1. Place the cutlery basket on a firm support (table, worktop) and

Different kinds of detergent
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 ensure the
complete removal of detergent residuals.
Do not place the tablets in the tub or in the cutlery basket as this
will result in poorer wash results. The tablets should be placed in
the detergent dispenser.
Concentrated detergent
Based on their chemical composition, dishwasher detergents can be
split into two basic types:
- conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components.
- low alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes.
The use of 50°C 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 in the concentrated detergent. For this
reason 50°C wash programmes in which concentrated detergents are
used can achieve the same results that can otherwise only be achieved
using 65°C programmes.
Combi detergents
If you are using dishwasher detergent that includes the rinse aid
function, this must be placed in the detergent compartment.
In this case the rinse aid dispenser must be empty, in order to avoid a
double dosage.
If in the rinse aid dispenser there is still rinse aid you must wait until it
has finished before using these kind of detergents.
The rinse aid indicator light will always remain illuminated when the
machine is switched on (not all dishwasher models are foreseen with
rinse aid indicator light).
Special salt for dishwasher must still be used.

Use of "3 in 1" combi detergents
General advice
These products are detergents with integrated and combined
detergent/rinse-aid and salt functions.
1. Before using these products you should first check that the
water hardness in your supply is compatible with the use of
these products as per the detergent manufacturers (on the
product packaging).
2. These products should be strictly used according to the detergent
manufacturers instructions.
3. If you encounter problems when using 3 in 1 products for the first
time then please contact the detergent manufacturers care line
(the telephone number is given on the product packaging).
Special advice
When using combination 3 in 1 products, we recommend the use of
the “3 in 1” function.
If you decide to turn back to the use of the standard detergent system
we advise that you:
● Refill both the salt container and rinse aid dispenser.
● Switch the water hardness setting to the highest possible position
and run from 1 to 3 normal washing programmes without a load.
● Readjust the water hardness setting again according to the
hardness of the water in your area.

(1) Ideal for washing crockery and cutlery of breakfast and dinner (fresh soil).
Characterised by a short duration.
This is the perfect daily programme, made to meet the needs of a family of 4 persons who only wish
to load breakfast and dinner crockery and cutlery.
(2) Testing programme for EN 50242 (see "Hints for Test Centres). This programme, developed for the
use of detergents with enzymes, allows you to achieve, with reduced consumption of energy the
same cleaning results that would otherwise be obtained only with the 65°C programmes and
conventional detergents. To compensate the lower temperature, the duration of washing and
drying have been extended.
(3) The consumption values are intended as a guide and depends on the pressure and the temperature of
the water and also by the variations of the power supply.

During the "AUTOMATIC" 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 AUTOMATIC programme (see "Washing programmes chart").
During the "AUTOMATIC" programme the temperature of the main wash water is also automatically
adjusted between 50°C and 65°C depending on the amount of soil on the dishes.

9. 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 then the dishes.
When the washing programme has finished, it is recommended
that the dishwasher is unplugged and the water tap turned off.

Maintenance and 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....).
Ensure that the seals around the door, the detergent and rinse aid
dispensers are cleaned regularly with a damp cloth.
We recommend every 3 months to run a 65°C wash programme
without dishes using detergent.
Cleaning the filters
The filters must be checked and cleaned from time to time.
Dirty filters will degrade the washing result.
1. Open the door, remove the lower basket.
2. The dishwasher filter system comprises a coarse filter (A), a
microfilter (B) and a flat filter (C).
Unlock the filter system using the handle on the microfilter, and
remove.
3. Turn the handle about 1/4 a turn anticlockwise and remove.

Water supply connections
This dishwasher may be fed with either hot (max. 60°) or cold water.
Nevertheless we advise you a cold water supply.
A hot water supply is not always efficient with very soiled crockery as
it shortens the washing programmes a lot.
For making the connection itself, the coupling nut fitted to the
machine’s supply hose is designed to screw onto either a 3/4" inch
gas thread spout or to a purpose made quick-coupling tap such as
the Press-block.
The water pressure must be within the limits given in the "Technical
specifications". Your local Water Authority will advise you on the
average mains pressure in your area.
The water inlet hose must not be kinked, crushed, or entangled when
it is being connected up.
The dishwasher features fill and drain hoses which can be turned
either to the left or the right to suit the installation by means of the
locknut. The locknut must be correctly fitted to avoid water leaks.
(Attention! NOT all models of dishwashers have fill and drain hoses
provided with locknut. In this case, this kind of facility is not
possible).
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.
Do not use, for connection, old hoses which have been used in
another appliance.
The dishwasher is fitted with safety devices that prevent the wash
water returning into the drinking water system and comply with the
applicable plumbing regulations.

Water inlet hose with safety valve
After connecting the double-walled water inlet hose, the safety valve
is next to the tap. Therefore the water inlet hose is only under pressure
while the water is running. If the water inlet hose starts to leak during
this operation, the safety valve cuts off the running water.
Please take care when installing the water inlet hose:
- The electrical cable for the safety valve is in the double-walled
water inlet hose. Do not immerse the water inlet hose or the safety
valve in water.
- If water inlet hose or the safety valve is damaged, remove the mains
plug immediately.
- A water inlet hose with safety valve must only be replaced by a
specialist or by the consumer services department.
- Place the water inlet hose in such a way that it is never higher than
the bottom edge of the safety valve.

Water outlet hose connection
The end of the drain hose can be connected in the following ways:
1. To the sink outlet spigot, securing it to the underside of the work
surface. This will prevent waste water from the sink running into the
machine.
2. Hooked over the edge of the sink using the special curved plastic
guide (if provided with the machine).
3. To a stand pipe provided with vent-hole, minimum internal
diameter 4 cm.
The waste connection must be at a height of between 30 cm
(minimum) and 100 cm (maximum) from the bottom of the
dishwasher.
The drain hose can face either to the right or left of the dishwasher
Ensure the hose is not bent or squashed as this could prevent or slow
down the discharge of water.
The sink plug must not be in place when the machine is draining as
this could cause the water to syphon back into the machine.
If you use a drain hose extension it must be no longer than 2 metres
and its internal diameter must be no smaller than the diameter of the
hose provided.
CS18
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.
Attention!
Our appliances are supplied with a security device to protect against
the return of dirty water back into the machine.
If the spigot of your sink has a "no return valve" incorporated this can
prevent the correct draining of your dishwasher.
We advise you therefore to remove it.

Electrical connection
Information concerning the electrical connection is given on the
rating plate on the edge of the dishwasher’s door.
Before plugging the appliance into the wall socket, make sure that:
1. The mains voltage and current rating at the site of installation
match the nominal voltage and current rating given on the rating
plate.
2. The meter, fuses, mains power supply and wall socket can all take
the maximum load required. Make sure that the socket and plug are
compatible without having to use any type of adaptor. If necessary,
have the domestic wiring system socket replaced.
To isolate the dishwasher from mains, remove the mains plug.
Important!
The plug must still be accessible after the appliance has been
installed.
In case that the electrical cable has to be replaced, please contact
your local consumer services department.
The appliance should not be connected to the electrical supply by
means of an extension cable.
Safety standards require the appliance to be earthed.
