INSTALLATION
Remove all packaging before positioning the
machine.
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 PressBlock.
Positioning
If possible, position the machine next to a water tap
and a drain.
The water pressure must be within the limits given in
the technical specifications, as it will not function
correctly if pressure is outside these specifications.
This dishwasher is designed to be fitted under a
kitchen counter or sink (see “Building-in).
The water supply hose is
fitted with a safety device,
which prevents water from
entering the machine
should the inner hose split,
due to wear.
Water Outlet Connection
The end of the drain hose can be connected as
follows:
A
to the sink outlet siphon, securing it if necessary with
a clip;
B
to a wall outlet provided with vent-hole, minimum
internal diameter 4 cm;
CA01
The problem is signalled by a red indicator which
appears in window (B).
If this happens, close the water tap and have the hose
replaced.
The waste connection must be at a height of between
30 cm (minimum) and 100 cm (maximum) from the
floor.
Warning: the retaining ring (A) must be properly fitted
so as to avoid water leaks.
It makes no difference which way the drain hose
faces, either to the right or left of the dishwasher.
Note: the end of the
hose connected to the
machine can be positioned
as required, by simply
slackening the retaining
ring.
Avoid bending or kinking the hose as this could
prevent or slow down the discharge of water.
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.
Re-tighten the ring securely
to avoid water leaks.
CA06
min 4 cm
Avoid bends or kinks in the hose, which could prevent
or slow down the flow of water.
If the machine is connected to new pipes or pipes
which have not been used for a long time, you are
advised to run the water for a few minutes before
connecting the inlet hose. This will prevent deposits of
sand or rust clogging the inlet hose filter.

Likewise the internal diameter of the couplings used
for connection to the waste outlet must be no smaller
than the diameter of the drain hose.
Electrical connection
Before plugging the appliance into the wall socket,
make sure that:
Water Supply Connections
1. the mains voltage corresponds to the voltage given
in the technical specifications;
This dishwasher may be fed with either hot (max.
60°C) or cold water.
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 adapter. If necessary,
have the domestic wiring system socket
replaced.
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.
Feeding the appliance with a hot water supply (max.
60°C) will allow you to obtain considerably shorter
programmes.
Safety standards require the appliance to be
earthed.
The Manufacturer accepts no liability for failure to
observe the above safety precautions.

5 seconds after having last pressed any of the
programme buttons, the dishwasher memorises the
level selected and returns to the programme setting
mode.
The Water Softener
Water contains varying amounts of lime and mineral
salts depending on the area where you live: these are
deposited on the dishes leaving white marks.
The higher the content of these salts, the harder your
water will be. The «hardness» level is measured on 2
equivalent scales: French Degrees or German Degrees.
Contact your local Water Authority to find the exact
water hardness level for your area.
Important
Salt MUST be used regularly from level 2 upward.
The dishwasher is equipped with a softener which uses special dishwasher salt to provide lime-free
(softened) water. The softener can treat water hardness up to 90 french degrees via 5 adjustment levels.
If your water is «level 1» it is already soft and therefore there is no need to use salt.
Filling with Salt
Find on the table below the level corresponding to the
hardness of your water and the required adjustments:
Only use salt which is specifically designed for use in
dishwasher. Other types of salt contain high
percentages of other substances which may reduce
the efficiency of the water softener.

Rinse Aid
D
This liquid gives the dishes a shiny finish and
improves drying. It is automatically added during the
hot rinse. 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.
To open the dispenser lid,
pull the catch (D). This will
open it.
At the end of any washing
programme the lid is always
open, ready for the next
wash.

Filling with Rinse Aid
The amount of detergent to be used varies depending
on how soiled the dishes are and the type of dishes
being washed. We recommend the amounts shown in
the programme chart on the next pages.
Open the container by turning the lid (A) anticlockwise.
Add rinse aid until the container is completely full
(approx. 110 ml). The indicator (B) will be completely
dark.
After filling the dispenser with detergent, close the lid.
Top up with rinse aid when the indicator (B) becomes
clear
Since not all detergents are the same, you should
also consult the instructions on the packet.
Remember to CLOSE the lid after every refill.
Remember that insufficient quantities of detergent will
produce poor washing results whereas an excessive
amount of detergent does not improve washing
results and is also wasteful.
Caution
Clean up any rinse aid spilt during filling with an
absorbent cloth to avoid excess foaming during the
next wash.
Using no more than the correct amount of
detergent also contributes to reducing pollution.

by means of the 6 position
selector (C) (position 1 minimum dose, position 6 maximum dose).
For the INTENSIVE programme
A
Gradually 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.
Caution: Do not put liquid detergent into the rinse aid
compartment.
DE04
If this programme, suitable
for particularly dirty pans and
dishes, is selected, an extra
10g of detergent must be
placed in the Washing Roto
Dispenser (WRD) located in
the centre of the upper
basket (10g of detergent is
about 1 level dessert spoon).
Pull out the basket and add detergent.
Use of Detergent
Phosphate free detergents with enzymes
Before starting any of the dishwashing programmes,
except for the rinse and hold programme, load the
detergent in the dispenser.
These new detergents, although welcome from an
ecological point of view, react far more susceptibly to
water hardness than conventional products.
Therefore, in order to avoid white lime deposits on
crockery and the inner tub, you should add salt in the
water softener even if the hardness of your water is as
low as 4° dH (7 TH°), when using these new detergents.
Use only tablets, powder or liquid detergents specifically
designed for domestic dishwashers.
Unsuitable detergents (such as those for washing by
hand) do not contain the right ingredients for machine
washing and hamper correct functioning of the
machine.

Teaspoons may be loaded
into the special slots
provided in the cutlery
basket handle.
Loading your Machine
Before placing dishes in the machine, remove any
scraps of food from the plates (small bones,
toothpicks, fish bones, scraps of meat and vegetables,
fruit skins etc.) to avoid clogging the filters and
consequently reducing performance.
Open the door and slide out the baskets to load the
dishes.
UI10
Use of the Lower Basket
The lower basket is designed to take saucepans, lids,
plates (up to 27 cm in diameter), salad bowls, cutlery etc.

Adjusting the Height of the Upper Basket
To ensure proper water
distribution to the upper
basket, do not place
dishes over the hole in
the WRD (Washing Roto
Dispenser) in the centre
of the basket.
If washing very large plates (over 27 cm and up to 31 cm
in diameter) you can load them in the lower basket after
moving the upper basket to the higher position as follows:
A
Before closing the door, ensure that the spray
arms can rotate freely.
Move the front runner
stops (A) of the upper
basket outward and slide
the basket out.

not be able to use the raised cup racks.
HELPFUL HINTS
For Best Washing Results:
Items not Suitable for Dishwashers
Before loading, remove all scraps of food and soak very
heavily soiled pots and pans.
The following should not be washed in the
dishwasher:
Always arrange saucepans, cups and glasses etc.
upside-down.
- Cutlery or dishes with wooden or horn handles or
glued parts.
Tilt items with convex or concave surfaces so that the
water drains off easily.
- Handmade items, wooden objects, antiques or
hand-painted china.
Long items of cutlery such as ladles, carving knives etc.
should be positioned horizontally in the upper basket.
Certain types of decoration can discolour when
washed in a dishwasher.
Avoid contact between the dishes as far as possible;
correct arrangement of the items will give better
washing results.
Crystal-ware and plastic objects, if not guaranteed
dishwasher-proof, should be washed by hand. You
are advised to place them in the upper basket and to
select a delicate programme.
Light items (plastic bowls etc.) should be loaded in the
upper basket and arranged so that they do not move
during washing.
Certain types of glass can also become opaque after
being washed several times in a dishwasher.
You will improve drying results by leaving the dishwasher
door ajar for at least 15-30 minutes as soon as the
programme finishes.
Silver cutlery tends to go black if mixed with steel
cutlery. Place it in the cutlery basket separate from the
others.
To Save Energy
Iron and cast iron objects can rust and stain other
items.
Do not prewash dishes under running water.
Place dishes in the machine immediately after every
meal and wait until the dishwasher is full before
washing.
If necessary run the Rinse and Hold programme (see
Programme Chart on the following pages), so that any
food scraps do not become caked on the dishes while
you are waiting to run the complete wash programme.
Aluminium tends to go black; copper, pewter and
brass tend to stain.
Caution: You are advised not to load very small
items which can fall through the baskets.
Note: When buying new dishes, ensure that they are
dishwasher-proof .
Select an ECONOMIC programme when the baskets
are not very full and/or when the dishes are not very
soiled, following the instructions given in the
Programme Chart (ECONOMY programme, QUICK
programme).

dispenser according to the indications in the Washing
Programmes chart and close the lid.
You are advised to turn off the water tap and switch
off the appliance at the main plugs.
5 Set the programme
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.
Wait a few minutes before removing the dishes; in this
way they will be cooler and the drying will be
improved.
A self-adhesive label summarising your dishwasher’s
programmes is supplied with the instruction book.
We recommend that you stick it to the top edge of the
door for easy reference.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Cleaning the Central Filters
Internal and External Cleaning
(After each wash)
You must ensure that the seals around the door, the
detergent and rinse aid dispensers are cleaned
regularly with a damp cloth.
Inspect the central filters (B) and (C) and remove any
scraps of food with a brush, under running water.
We recommend the use of a Dishwasher Cleaner every
3 months, or run a 65°C wash programme without
dishes using detergent.
Filters (B) and (C) are both removed by lifting up the
outer one (B) (pulling the central funnel upwards); the
smaller filter (C) can then be removed by pressing the
two tongues (D).
Check that the spray arm nozzles are not obstructed.
To remove the bottom spray arm, release it from its
securing catches and pull it out.
D
To clean the nozzles of the top spray arm, slide out
the top basket whereby the spray arm will become
accessible. To remove it, lift up the WRD and unscrew
the ring nut (see instructions below).
C
B
MA02
Clean the external surfaces of the machine and
control panel with a soft damp cloth. If necessary use
only neutral detergents. Never use abrasive products,
scouring pads or solvents (acetone, trichloroethylene
etc...).
MA08
Once cleaned, refit the filters by pressing them
down until they click into place.
Cleaning the Large Filter
(Once a month)
Clean the large filter (A) on both sides under running
water, using a brush.
To take it out, remove the spray arm by pressing the two
tongues (E), turn the ring (F) anticlockwise (towards the
left) and then slide the whole part out. Refit the filter
following the above instructions in reverse order.
E
MA06
Check that the Washing
Roto Dispenser (WRD) is not
clogged with detergent
residue. If necessary, rinse it
under running water after
having removed it from
the basket by twisting it
anticlockwise and pulling it
upwards.
Refit the dispenser by following the above instructions
in reverse order.
A
Fasten it back onto the support by turning it clockwise.
F
Important: Never use your dishwasher without the
WRD dispenser.
Since WRD also ensures correct distribution of the
water to the upper spray arm, running the dishwasher
without it will impair the washing results.
MA03
Caution: the dishwasher must not be used without filters.
Incorrect repositioning of the filters will produce
poor washing results.
Cleaning of the filters is vital to ensure correct
operation of the machine.

Prolonged Periods of Non-Operation
If you are not using the machine for any period of time
you are advised to:
unplug the appliance and turn off the water;
fill the rinse aid dispenser;
leave the door ajar to prevent the formation of
unpleasant smells;
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
water inlet tap, disconnect the water inlet pipe and
empty it.
Moving the Machine
If you have to move the machine (you are moving
house etc...):
unplug it;
turn off the water tap;
remove the water inlet and discharge hoses;
pull the machine out together with the hoses.
Caution: avoid over tilting the machine during
transport.

plinth of adjacent kitchen units (see kitchen plinth
adjustment).
This dishwasher is designed to be fitted under a kitchen
counter or sink.
In either case, it is essential that the recess dimensions
indicated in the picture are followed.
No further openings for venting of the dishwasher are
required, but only to let the water fill and drain hoses
and power supply cable pass through.
