Partial load (to be
completed later in the
day).
* Testing programme for EN 50242 (see "Hints for Test Centres).
** This is a special programme for quick washing a full load of lightly soiled dishes, glasses and crockery (except pots) so that you
may re-use them promptly.
Operating sequence
1. Check the filters
8. Start the programme
Ensure they are clean and properly positioned (see
"Maintenance and cleaning" - Instruction book part 1).
Depress the On/Off push button.
The On/Off indicator light will come on and the machine
will start.
If you wish to interrupt the washing programme at any
time press this button again.
2. Check that there is rinse aid and salt
(See "Instruction book - part 1")
3. Load the dishes
9. At the end of the washing programme
Remove any scraps of food.
Pull the lower basket out and arrange the saucepans,
plates and cutlery in it.
Pull the upper basket out and arrange the plates,
saucers, glasses and cups etc. in it.
Slide the baskets back into the machine.
At the end of the programme the dishwasher will
automatically stop.
The On/Off indicator light remains on until the On/Off
push button is depressed.
10. Switch off the dishwasher
Switch off the dishwasher by pressing the On/Off push
button and open the door.
Wait a few minutes before removing the dishes; in this
way they will be cooler and the drying will be improved.
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.
4. Ensure that the spray arms can
rotate freely
5. Measure out detergent
Add the required amount of detergent into the dispenser
according to the "Washing programmes" chart.
Close the detergent dispenser lid.
When the washing programme has finished, it is
recommended that the dishwasher is unplugged and the
water tap turned off.
In general it is not advisable to open the door while the
machine is working; if the door is opened however, a
safety device ensures that the machine stops.
6. Close the dishwasher door
7. Set the programme
Turn the programme selector dial clockwise until the
letter of the programme you wish to select corresponds
with the programme marker on the control panel.
Important!
Care must be taken if the door is opened during the hot
phase or immediately after a programme has finished, as
steam may escape.

Using your appliance
Loading your appliance
The upper basket
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.
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 so that water can reach all surfaces.
Light items (plastic bowls etc.) should be loaded in the upper
basket and arranged so they do not move.
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.
US64
In case that plates are loaded in the upper
basket:
UI48
load them starting from the rear positions of the basket, tilting
them forwards and avoiding the front positions near the door.
UI21
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.
US71
Before closing the door, ensure that the spray arms can
rotate freely.
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.
Adjusting the height of the upper
basket
Mix spoons with other cutlery to prevent them from sticking
together.
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.
For best results we recommend to use the cutlery grids
provided (if the size and the dimensions of the cutlery allow it).
To move to the higher position proceed as follows:
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.
1. Move the front runner
stops (A) of the upper
basket outwards and
slide the basket out.
A
2. Refit the basket in the
higher position and
replace the stops (A) in
their original position.
RC01
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.
UI62
UI63
Attention!
After loading your machine always close the door, as an
open door can be a hazard.

Before use
Before using your dishwasher for the
first time:
Filling with salt
Attention!
Only use salt specifically designed for use in
dishwashers.
All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in
dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water
softener.
Only fill with salt just before starting a washing
programme. This will prevent any grains of salt or salty
water, which may have been spilled, remaining on the
bottom of the machine, which may cause corrosion.
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.
6. Run a "Rinse and Hold" programme.
To fill:
Setting the water softener
1. To fill with salt, unscrew the cap of the salt container.
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 is measured in equivalent scales, Clarke,
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 2.
If this level is not suitable for your area the softener should be
adjusted.
If your water is level 0 it is already soft and therefore
there is no need to use salt.
In this case adjust the water softener on level 1 without
using salt.
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 (if
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.

The salt container will require topping up periodically.
According to the model, an indicator reminds you when filling
with salt:
A) The salt cap has a refill
indicator window in the centre.
A green float is clearly
visible when there is salt
inside the container, and
almost disappears when the
salt has finished reminding
you to add salt.
SR11
B) A salt indicator light on the
control panel will come on
when the salt has finished.
Only for dishwasher models with salt refill
indicator light:
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..
if the water softener has been adjusted on level 1 without use
of salt, the salt refill indicator light on the control panel will
always remain illuminated when the machine is switched on.
To adjust the water softener
4
With a screwdriver turn the selector on the upper front corner
of the machine until the level
required corresponds with the
marker.

Rinse aid
Use of detergent
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.
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 is it recommended for fine bone china.
Filling with rinse aid
1. Open the container by turning the lid (A) anticlockwise.
If using powder detergents proceed as follows:
2. Add the rinse aid until the container is completely full.
The indicator (B) will be completely dark.
1. Open the dispenser lid by pulling the catch (D).
2. Add the detergent according to the recommended
quantity given in the "Washing programmes" chart
(see "Instruction Book - Part 2").
As all detergents are not the same, you should also
consult the instructions on the packet.

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.
DE17
DE02
If using detergent in tablets proceed as
follows:
Adjusting the dose
1. For all programmes; place 1 tablet inside the detergent
dispenser.
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).
2. Always close the lid.
3. For all programmes with prewash; place a portion of a
further tablet on the lid of the detergent dispenser.
Increase the dose if there are drops of water or lime spots on
the dishes after washing.
If your dishwasher has a SID dispenser and you require a
prewash, put the extra detergent into the SID dispenser
and not on the lid of the detergent dispenser.
Reduce it if there are sticky whitish streaks on the dishes.
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
BR02
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 50°C programmes (if available) you can
therefore achieve the same cleaning results that would
otherwise be achievable only with 65°C programmes and
conventional detergents.These new compact powders are
generally phosphate-free.

Hints and tips
To save energy
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
"Washing Programmes" chart) so that any food scraps do not
become caked on the dishes while you are waiting to run the
complete wash programme.
Do not prewash dishes under running water.
For best washing and drying results
Before loading, remove all scraps of food and soak very
heavily soiled pots and pans.
Arrange saucepans, cups and glasses etc. upside-down.
Tilt items with convex or concave surfaces so that the water
drains off easily.
Avoid contact between the dishes as far as possible.
Items not suitable for dishwashers
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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....).
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.
Once cleaned, refit the filter by pushing it back to its original
position until it engages.
Prolonged periods of non-operation
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
MA04
MA19
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.
Cleaning the large filter
(Every week)
If necessary clean the large filter (B) on both sides under
running water, using a brush.
To remove the large filter
1. Remove the spray arm by pulling it upwards on one side.
2. Turn the column (C) anticlockwise by 90° and then slide
out the filter.
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.
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.

Good levelling is essential for correct closure and sealing of
the door. When the appliance is correctly levelled, the door will
not catch on the levelling spacers on either side of the
cabinet. If the door does not close correctly, loosen or tighten
the adjustable feet until the machine is perfectly level.
Attention!
Our appliances are supplied with a 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.
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" (Instruction Book - Part 2).
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 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.

This appliance must be earthed.
The manufacturer declines any responsibility should this
safety measure not be observed.
If the plug that is fitted to your appliance is not suitable for the
