Before use
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 salt
5. Fill the rinse aid dispenser.
Setting 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 salts, the harder
your water is.
Water hardness
Water hardness is measured in equivalent scales,
Clarke degrees, French degrees and PPM (parts per
Million).
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 dishwasher is factory set at level 3.
If this level is not suitable for your area the softener
should be adjusted.
To select a different level be sure that
the dishwasher is off and then proceed
as follows:
1. Press INTENSIVE SID 80 and NORMAL
programme push buttons simultaneously.
2. While keeping the programme push buttons
INTENSIVE SID 80 and NORMAL pressed
switch on the dishwasher by pressing the
ON-OFF push button.
The ON-OFF indicator light comes on.
At the same time, also the indicator light of the
INTENSIVE SID 80 comes on and remains fixed
for about 5 seconds, after this it starts flashing
indicating the current level of the water softener.
SO362

The current level is indicated by the number of
flashes made by the INTENSIVE SID 80 indicator
light, that alternates 5 seconds off with a number of
flashes, this for about 60 seconds.
Example:
1 flash
=
2 flashes =
3 flashes =
4 flashes =
5 flashes =
level 1
level 2
level 3
level 4
level 5
3. To change the level, press the INTENSIVE SID 80
programme push button. Each time the push
button is pressed the level changes.
Example:
if the current level is 3, by pressing the
INTENSIVE SID 80 programme push button once,
level 4 is selected.
The INTENSIVE SID 80 indicator light remains off
for about 5 seconds after which it starts flashing
indicating the new level selected.
4. To memorise the new level, switch off the
dishwasher by pressing the ON-OFF push button.
If your water is level 1 it is already soft
and therefore there is no need to use salt.
With the setting of the water softener at
level 1 the salt indicator light on the
control panel will always remain off.
Use salt from level 2 upwards.
From level 2 upwards, if salt refilling is
necessary, the salt indicator light will
illuminate only in setting mode and at the
end of the washing programme.
During the run of the programme it will
remain off.
7
Filling with 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 spilled,
remaining on the bottom of the machine
for any period of time, which may cause
corrosion.
To fill:
1. To fill with salt, unscrew the cap of the salt
container.
2. Pour 1 litre of water inside the container (this
is necessary only before filling with salt for
the first time).
LE
SA LT
SA LZ

SE
3. Using the funnel provided, pour in the salt until
the container is full.
Do not worry if water over flows from the unit
when filling with salt, this is quite normal.
4. Replace the cap making sure that there is no
trace of salt on the screw thread or on the gasket.
5. Screw on the cap tightly.
SR06
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.
8
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 turning the lid (A)
anticlockwise.

2. Add the rinse aid until the container is completely
full. The indicator (B) will be completely dark.
3. Top up the rinse aid when the rinse aid indicator
light on the control panel illuminates.

setting mode and at the end of the
washing programme.
During the run of the programme it will
remain off.
BR03
Ensure that the lid is closed after every refill.
Do not put liquid detergent in the rinse aid
compartment. Clean up any rinse aid spilt during
filling with an absorbent cloth to avoid excess
foaming during the next wash.
Adjusting the dose
According to the finish and drying results obtained,
adjust the dose of rinse aid by means of the 6
position selector (C) (position 1 minimum dosage,
position 6 maximum dosage).
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.

Using your appliance
Loading your appliance
Before placing dishes in the machine, remove any
scraps of food, to avoid clogging the filters and
consequently reducing the performance.
Do not load very small items which can fall
through the baskets.
Open the door and slide out the baskets to load the
dishes.
UI48
The lower basket
The lower basket is designed to take saucepans,
lids, plates, salad bowls, cutlery etc.
Serving dishes and large lids should be arranged
around the edge of the basket, ensuring that the
upper spray arm can turn freely.
UI21
The two rear rows of prongs on the lower basket can
be easily lowered to allow you to load pots, pans
and bowls.
To lower the prongs:
- Slightly pull them upward and let them drop down
(see picture).
- To bring them back to the standing position, just
pull them up again.
UI85
10
UI18
The cutlery basket
Long bladed knives stored in an upright
position are a potential hazard.
These items should only be placed in the
removable knife basket.
Take care when loading or unloading
sharp items such as knives.
Removable knife basket
Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving
knives must be placed horizontally in the
removable knife basket provided, to be positioned
at the rear of the upper basket.
UI53
Cutlery should be placed in the removable cutlery
basket with the handles facing downwards. 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.
The cutlery basket is in two parts which can be
separated to give greater loading flexibility. To
separate the two parts, slide them horizontally in
opposite directions and pull them apart. To
reassemble, reverse the procedure.
UI62
For best results we recommend you to use the
cutlery grids provided (if the size and dimensions of
the cutlery allow it).
UI63
The upper basket
The upper basket is designed for plates (dessert
plates, saucers, dinner plates of up to 25 cm in
diameter), salad bowls, cups and glasses.
Arrange items on and underneath the cup racks so
that water can reach all surfaces.
Glasses with long stems can be placed upside down
in the raised cup racks.
Light items (plastic bowls etc.) should be loaded in
the upper basket and arranged so they do not move.
US47
Before closing the door, ensure that the
spray arms can rotate freely.
11
In case that plates are loaded in the
upper basket:
load them starting from the rear positions of the
basket; tilting them slightly forwards and
avoiding the front positions near the door.
US71
Adjusting the height of the upper
basket
If washing very large plates (over 27 cm and up to 32
cm in diameter) you can load them in the lower basket
after moving the upper basket to the higher position.
To move to the higher position proceed as follows:
1. Pull out the basket until it stops.
2. Carefully lift both sides upwards until the
mechanism is engaged and the basket is stable.
RC04
When the top basket is in the higher
position it will only take plates up to 20 cm
in diameter and you will not be able to use
the raised cup racks.
To lower the basket to the original position
proceed as follows:
1. Pull out the basket until it stops.
2. Carefully lift both sides upwards and the allow the
mechanism to drop back slowly, keeping hold of it.
Never lift or lower the basket on one side
only.
After loading your machine always close
the door, as an open door can be a hazard.
12
Use of detergent
Only use detergents specifically designed
for use in dishwashers.
We recommend the use of Finish detergents which
are available in the following options:
Finish Double Action Tablets. Each tablet has the
exact amount of detergent required, simply place in
the dispenser.
Finish Powder recommended for every day use.
Finish Liquid Gel ideal for every day use. As the
gel is extra gentle it is recommended for fine bone
china.
Min = 15 g
Max = 30 g D
If using powder detergents proceed as follows:
1. Open the dispenser lid by pulling the catch (D).
2. Add the detergent according to the instructions
given in the Washing programmes chart.
As all detergents are not the same, you should
also consult the instructions on the packet.
M
M IN
AX
3. Always close the lid.
DE17
4. If the programme has a prewash add the
required detergent in the SID detergent
dispenser, located in the centre of the upper
basket.
If using detergent in tablets proceed as follows:
1. For all programmes; place 1 tablet inside the
detergent dispenser.
2. Always close the lid.
DE14
3. For all programmes with prewash; place a portion
of a further tablet on the lid of the detergent
dispenser.
Insufficient quantities of detergent will
produce poor washing results, whereas an
excessive amount of detergent will not
improve washing results and is also
wasteful.
Using no more than the correct amount
also contributes to reducing pollution.
Compact detergents with enzymes
In these compact powders the environmentally unfriendly components have been replaced by natural enzymes
and other more biodegradable substances.
The enzymes deploy their full dirt dissolving power at a temperature as low as 50°C.
By choosing the ECONOMY programmes you can therefore achieve the same cleaning results that would
otherwise be achievable only with 65°C programmes and conventional detergents.

Hints and tips
To save energy
Items not suitable for dishwashers
Place dishes in the machine immediately after every
meal and wait until the dishwasher is full before
washing.
Do not prewash dishes under running water.
Select the QUICK A 30 programme when dishes are
not very soiled, following the instructions given in the
"Washing programmes" chart.
Select the HALF LOAD option if only a few dishes
need washing. Remember to load the dishes in both
baskets.
The following items should not be washed in the
dishwasher (unless they are sold as dishwasher
proof):
- Cutlery with wooden or horn handles or
glued parts
- bronze cutlery
- saucepans with wooden handles
- aluminium ware
- crystal ware
- leaded glass
- plastic items
- antique or fine decorated china
For best washing results
Certain types of decoration can discolour when
washed in a dishwasher.
Crystal-ware and plastic objects, if not guaranteed
dishwasher proof should be washed by hand.
Certain types of glass can also become opaque
after being washed several times in a dishwasher.
A chemical reaction can occur between silver cutlery
and stainless steel cutlery. As a precaution, do not
wash together.
Iron and cast iron objects can rust and stain other
items.
Aluminium tends to go black, copper, pewter and
brass tend to stain.
Before loading, remove all scraps of food and soak
very heavily soiled pots and pans.
Arrange saucepans, cups and glasses etc. upsidedown.
Tilt items with convex or concave surfaces so that
the water drains off easily.
Avoid contact between the dishes as far as possible.
If in doubt check with manufacturer of the
item.
When buying new dishes, ensure that they
are dishwasher proof.
For best results we recommend the use of Finish detergents, rinse aid and salt.

Maintenance and cleaning
Internal cleaning
Ensure that the seals around the door, the detergent
and rinse aid dispensers are cleaned regularly with
a damp cloth.
We recommend the use of Finish Dishwasher
Cleaner every 3 months or run a 65°C wash without
dishes using detergent. Regular use of Finish
Dishwasher Cleaner cleans inaccessible parts,
eliminates unpleasant food odours and helps
prevent the build-up of limescale.
Cleaning the central filter
(After each wash)
Scraps of food may accumulate in the drain filter (A)
and should be removed by rinsing the filter under
running water.
To remove the drain filter
- simply pull it out by the handle.
A
Once cleaned, refit the filter by pushing it back to its
original position until it engages.
MA04
MA19
Cleaning the large filter
(Every week)
If necessary clean the large filter (B) on both sides
under running water, using a brush.
90°
To remove the large filter
1. Remove the spray arm by pulling it upwards on
one side.
B
C
2. Turn the column (C) anticlockwise by 90° and
then slide out the filter.
MA05
MA20
3. Once cleaned refit it following the above
instructions in reverse order.
4. Ensure the filter is in its original position, the
handle of the drain filter should be pointing
towards the front of the appliance.
MA21
The dishwasher must not be used without
filters.
Incorrect repositioning and fitting of the
filters will produce poor washing results.
Cleaning the filters is vital to ensure
correct operation of the machine.
18
MA18
Check that the SID 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.
Fasten it back onto the support by turning it
clockwise.
Never use your dishwasher without the
SID dispenser.
Since SID also ensures correct distribution
of the water to the upper spray arm,
running the dishwasher without it will
impair the washing results.
MA12
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 period
of time you are advised to:
1. Unplug the appliance and then turn off the water.
2. Fill the rinse aid dispenser.
3. Leave the door ajar to prevent the formation of
any unpleasant smells.
4. 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.
Moving the machine
If you have to move the machine (moving house
etc....):
1. Unplug it.
2. Turn the water tap off.
3. Remove the water inlet and discharge hoses.
4. Pull the machine out together with the hoses.
Avoid over tilting the machine during transportation.
19
Something not working
Certain problems are due to lack of simple maintenance or oversights, which can be solved easily without calling out

Installation instructions
Any electrical work required to install
this appliance should be carried out by a
qualified electrician or competent
person.
Any plumbing work required to install
this appliance should be carried out by a
qualified plumber or competent person.
Remove all packaging before positioning the
machine.
If possible, position the machine next to a water tap
and a drain.
Water supply connections
This dishwasher must be plumbed into a cold water
supply.
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 dishwasher features fill and drain hoses which
can be turned either to the left or the right to suit the
installation.
Do not use, for the connection, old hoses which
have been used in another appliance.
The locknut must be correctly fitted to avoid
water leaks.
Avoid bends or kinks in the hose which could
prevent or slow down the water supply.
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. This will prevent deposits
of sand or rust clogging the inlet hose filter.

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.
