Under certain conditions, Hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot-water system that has not been used for
two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE.
If the hot-water system has not been used for such a period, before using the dishwasher turn on all
hot-water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated
hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.

This button (see " Control panel " ) is used with the normal cycle in the case where pots and pans with dry caked-on food must be
washed.
This is not recommended for delicate items in so far as the high temperature could make their surfaces opaque or lighten
decorative colors after repeated washing.
This button (see " Control panel " )when pressed with wash cycle 4(glassware)makes it possible to run the wash cycle at a lower
temperature (50 C) and eliminates the drying phase.
Your dishwasher has an overfill protection device which could automatically shut off the inlet valve and starts the drain pump
if the water level in the unit is detected to be above the normal level. If thi s occurs, turn off the main water supply before calling for
servicing. If there is water in the base pan because of an overfil l or small leak, the water should be removed before restarting the
dishwasher.

If your model have not water softener, you may skip this section.
There are two ways to reduce the water hardness: one way is using water softener, the other is using
detergent.
The hardness of the water varies from place to place. If hard water is used in the dishwasher, deposits will form on the dishes
and utensils.
The appliances is equipped with a special softener that uses a salt specifically designed to eliminate lime and minerals from the
water.
Always use salt intended for use with dishwashers.
The salt container is located beneath the lower rack and should be filled as follows:
1
Remove the lower basket and then unscrew and remove the cap from the salt
container.
2
3
If you are filling the container for the first time ,fill 2/3 of its volume with water.
4
Carefully screw the cap back on.
Place the end of the funnel(supplied) into the hole and introduce about 2kg of
salt .It is normal for a small amount of water to come out of the salt containe r
1. The salt container must be refilled when the salt warning li ght comes on. Though the salt container is filled
enough, the indicator light may not black out before the salt fully dissolve.
2. If there are spills of the salt, a soak program could be run to wipe them out.
The dishwasher is designed to allow for adjusting the amount of salt consum ed based on the hardness of the water used.
This is intended to optimize and customize the level of salt consumption so that the salt consumption could be set proceed as
follows:
1
2
Unscrew the cap from the salt container.
There is a ring on the container with an arrow on it (see Figure to the side), if
necessary, rotate the ring in the anticlockwise directi on from the "-" Setting
toward the "+" sign, based on the hardness of the water being used.It is
recommended that adjustments should be made in accordance with the following

YOU MAY NOT ADD TOO MUCH DETERGENT TO PREVENT THE FORMATIO N OF DEPOSITS BECAUSE YOUR DISHWASHERS
HAVE SPECIALLY-DESIGNED WATER SOFTENERS.
The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each wash cycle following the instructions provided i n the" Wash Cycle
Table".Your dishwashers use less detergent and rinse aid than conventional dishwashers. Generally, only one tablespoon of
detergent is needed for a normal wash load. Also, more heavily soiled items need more detergent. Always add the detergent just
before starting dishwasher, otherwise it could get damp and will not dissolve properly.
IF THE WATER ISN'T TOO HARD, YOU MAY ALSO PREVENT THE FORMATION OF DEPOSITS B Y ADDING DETERGENT.
The amount of detergent needed can vary due to differences in water hardness. To determine the water hardness in your area,
contact your local water utility or area water softening company. The harder the water, the more detergent you may need.
Remember, you should adjust the amount of detergent you use by small amounts until you find the correct amount.
To remove hard water spots, try the following:
Run di shes through a normal wash program.
Remove all metal dishware, such as cutlery, pans, etc.,
from the dishwasher.
Do not add detergent.
Pour two cups of vinegar into a bowl and set the bowl face
up on the lower rack of the dishwasher.
Run the dishes through a normal wash program.
If this doesn't work, try the same process with 1 / 4 cup of
citric acid crystals instead of vinegar.
Use only detergent specifically made for use in dishwashers.
Keep your detergent fresh and dry. Don't put powder detergent
into the dispenser until You're ready to wash dishes.
Dishwasher detergent is corrosive! Take care to keep it out
of reach of children.
The rinse aid is released during the final rinse to prevent water
from forming droplets on your dishes that can leave spots and
streaks. It also improves drying by allowing water to "sheet" off
the dishes.
Your dishwashers are designed to use liquid rinse aids. The
rinse aid dispenser is located inside the door next to the
detergent dispenser. To fill the dispenser, open the cap and
pour the rinse aid into the dispenser until the level indicator
turns completely black. The dispenser holds about 100 ml of
liquid rinse aid.
To open the dispenser, turn the cap to the "open" (left)
arrow and lift it out.
Pour the rinse aid into the dispenser, being careful not to
overfill.
Replace the cap by inserting it aligned with "open" arrow
and turning it to the closed (right) arrow.
Be careful not to overfill the dispenser, because this could
cause oversudsing. Wipe away any spills with a damp cloth.
Don't forget to replace the cap before you close the dishwasher
door.
If you have soft water, you may not need rinse aid for it may
cause a white film to develop on your dishes.
A measured amount of rinse aid is released during the final rinse. As with detergent, the amount
of rinse aid needed for your dishes depends on the hardness of the water in your area. Too much
rinse aid can result in lather of foaming and cause cloudiness or steaks on your dishes. If the
water in your area is very soft, you may not need rinse aid. If you do,you can dilute the rinse aid
with an equal amount of water.
The rinse aid dispenser has six settings. Always start with the dispenser set on " 1 ". If spots and
poor drying are problems, increase the amount of rinse aid dispensed by removing the dispenser
lid and rotating the dial to "2". If the dishes stil l are not drying properly or are spotted, adjust the
dial to the next higher number until your dishes are spot-free. We suggest you to set on "4" .
5
If there is no rinse aid warning light in the control panel, you can judge the amount of rinse aid by the following means. The
black dot on the rinse aid dispenser indicates the amount of rinse aid in the dispenser. As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of
the black dot decreases. You should never let the rinse aid get below 1 / 4 full.
As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of the black dot on the rinse
aid level indi cator changes, as illustrated below.

The upper rack is designed to hold more delicate and lighter dishware such as glasses, coffee and tea cup and saucers, as well
as plates, small bowls and shallow pans(as long as they are not too dirty).
Position the dishes and cookware so that they do not get moved by the spray of water.
The upper rack can be adjusted for height by putting wheels of different height into the rails.

We recommend that you place large items which are most difficult to clean into the lower rack: pots, pans, lids,
serving dishes and bowls, as shown in the figure to the right.
It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the side of the racks in order to avoid blocking the rotation of the
top spray arm.
Pots, serving bowls, etc, must always be placed top down.
Deep pots should be slanted to allow water to flow out.
The bottom rack feature fold down tine rows so that larger or more pots and pans can be loaded.

Press the ON/ OFF button, and the ON/OFF light will turn on. At this point, the wash cycle will begin.
Make sure that the water supply is turned on to full pressure.
Load the dishwasher(see the section entitled, " Loading the Dishwasher " ).
Pour in the detergent(see the section entitled, " Salt, Detergent and Rinse Aid " ).
Turn the knob located on the right of the control panel in the clockwise directi on until the number or the symbol for the cycle
setting is aligned with the reference mark (see the section entitled, " Wash Cycle Table " ).
Premise : A cycle that is underway can only be modified if it has only been running for a short time. Otherwise, the detergent may
have already been released, and the appliance may have already drained the wash water. If this is the case, the detergent dispenser
must be refilled (see the paragraph entitled " Loading the Detergent " ).
Press the ON/OFF button, and the ON light will turn off. Rotate the knob in the clockwise direction to the desired cycle setting (see
the section entitled, " Starting a wash cycle. . . " ). Then, turn the dishw asher back on using the on the ON/OFF button.
When the knob stops turning and is aligned with a STOP mark(see figure), the cycle has finished .
Turn off the appliance using the ON/OFF button, shut off the water supply and open the door of
the dishwasher. Wait a few minutes before unloading the dish washer to avoid handling the
dishes and utensils while they are still hot and more susceptible to breakage. They will also dry
better.
A forgotten dish can be added any time before the detergent cup opens.

For your convenience, we have placed the drain pump and filtering system within easy reach inside the tub. There are three
components of the filtering system: the main filter, the coarse filter, and the fine filter.
1
2
3
1
Main filter
Food and soil particles trapped by this filter are pulverized by a special jet on the lower spray
arm and washed down the drain.
2
Coarse fi lter
Larger items, such as pieces of bone or glass, that could clog the drain are trapped in the
coarse filter. To remove an item caught in this filter, gently squeeze the tabs on top of this
filter and lift it out.
3
Fine filter
This filter holds soil and food residue in the sump area and prevents it from being
redeposited on the dishes during a cycle.
If your dishwasher is left in an unheated place during the winter, ask a service technician to:
Uncrew
1
Cut off electrical power to the dishwasher. Remove
fuses or trip circuit breaker.
4
Reconnect the water inlet pipe to the
water valve.
2
Turn off the water supply and disconnect the water
inlet pipe from the water valve.
5
3
Drain water from the inlet pipe and water valve.
(Use a pan to catch the water.)
Remove the plastic sump cover in the
tub the bottom and use a sponge to
soak up water in rubber boot.
It is necessary to cl ean the spray arms regularly for hard water chemicals will clog the spray arm jets and bearings. To remove the
spray arm, screw off the nut to take out the washer on top of the spray arm and remove the arm. Wash the arms in soapy and warm
water and use a soft brush to clean the jets. Replace them after rinsing them thoroughly.
Filter assembly
For best performance and results, the filter assembly must be cleaned.
The filter efficiently removes food particles from the wash water, allowing it to be
recirculated during the cycle. For this reason, it is a good idea to remove the larger
food particles trapped in the filter after each wash cycle by rinsing the se micircular
filter and cup under running water. To remove the filter assembly, pull on the cup
handle in the upward direction. The entire filter assembly should be cleaned at least
once a month.
To clean the coarse filter and the fine filter, use a cleaning brush. Then, reassemble
the filter parts as shown in the figures left and reinsert the entire assembly in the
dishwasher, positioning in its seat and pressing downward.
The dishwasher must never be used without the filters. Improper replacement of the
filter may reduce the performance level of the appliance and damage dishes and utensils.
Never run the dishwasher without the filters in place.
8
To clean the edge around the door, you should use only a soft warm, damp rag. To prevent
penetration of water into the door lock and electrical components, do not use a spray cleaner
of any kind.
Also, never use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads on the outer surfaces because they will
scratch the finish. Some papers towels can also scratch or leave marks on the surface.
Never use a spray cleaner to clean the door panel for it could damage the door l ock and electrical components. It is not allowed
to use the abrasive agent or some paper towel becauseof the risk of scratching or leaving spots on the stainless steel surface.
Something will occasionally move into the filters and the drain pump. If this occurs, the drain
pumps employed in your dishwashers are designed to automatically reverse, ejecting the
item back into the sump area or down the drain. If you have to remove an obstacle from the
drain pump, before you remove the filters, you should turn off the power; Then remove the
small black insert from the sumparea. (You might want to remove any standing water first).
Scoop out the item that is probably in the sump area and causes the obstruction. Remember
to replace the black insert before you put the filters back in.
When you go on holiday, it is recommened that you run a
wash cycle with the dishwasher empty and then remove
the plug from the socket, turn off the water supply and
leave the door of the appliance slightly ajar. This will help
the seals last longer and prevent odors from forming
within the appliance.
After every wash, turn off the water supply to the
appliance and leave the door slightly ajar so that
moisture and odors are not trapped inside.
Before cleaning or performing maintenance, always
remove the plug from the socket. Do not run risks.
If the appliance must be moved, try to keep it in the vertical
position.If absolutely necessary, it can be positioned on
its back.
To clean the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher,
do not use solvents or abrasive cleaning products.
Rather, use only a cloth and warm soapy water.
To remove spots or stains from the surface of the
interior, use a cloth dampened with water and a little
white vinegar, or a cleaning product made specifically
for dishwashers.
One of the factors that cause odors to form in the
dishwasher is food that remains trapped in the seals.
Periodic cleaning with a damp sponge will prevent this
from occurring.

Fused electrical supply is required-copper wire only. Time delay fuse or c ircuit breaker recommended and provide separate
circuit serving only this appliance. Outlet should be placed in adjacent cabinet.
Make sure that the plug on the appliance remains accessible after installation.
After making sure that the voltage and the frequency values for the current in the home
correspond to those on the rating plate and that the electrical system is sized for the
maximum voltage on the rating plate, insert the plug into an electrical socket which is
earthed properly. If the electrical socket to which the appliance must be connected is not
appropriate for the plug , replace the socket(installed by a qualified electrician) ,rather than
using a adaptors or the like as they could cause overheating and burns.
The appliance must be connected to the water mains using new hose-sets.
The old hose-sets should not be reused.
Water pressure must be between 0,04 MPa and 1 MPa. If the pressure is below the minimum
consult our Service Department for advice.
If faucet has not threads: attach the faucet adapter to faucet, then tighten every screw
of the adapter. To prevent leaking your should tighten the adapter.

Attach the Unicouple connector to the faucet adapter by depressing the collar at the top of the connector.
When Unicouple is all the way up onto the adapter, release the collar. It will then snap Into position to
lock the Unicouple in place. The Unicouple
s small hose carries water from the faucet to the dishwasher.
'
Its large hose carries drain water to the sink. Be sure Unicouple is pointing toward the sink bowl drain
opening and the sink drain is open for water that will drain from your dishwasher. If your dishwasher
drains into a disposer, operate the disposer until it is completely empty before starting the dishwasher.
3
Turn water fully on before starting the dishwasher.
A hose that attaches to a sink spray can burst if it is installed on the same water line as the dishwasher. If your sink has one, it is
recommended thet the hose be disconnected and the hole plugged.

Connect the cold water supply hose to a threaded 3/4(inch) connector and make sure that it is
fastened tightly in place.
If the water pipes are new or have not been used for an extended period of time, let the water
run to make sure that the water is clear and free of impurities. If this precaution is not taken,
there is a risk that the water inlet can get blocked and damage the appliance.
Con nector of ModelⅡ
The water supply to the appliance can also be connected to the house hot water line
(centralized system, heating system),as long as it does not exceed a temperature of 60 C.
In this case, the wash cycle time will be shortened by about 15 minutes and the wash
efficiency slightly reduced.
The connection must be made to the hot water line following the same procedures as those
for the connection to the cold water line.
Position the appliance in the desired location. The back should rest against the wall behind it, and the sides, along the adjacent
cabinets or wall. The dishwasher is equipped with water supply and drain hoses that can be positioned to the right or the left to
facilitate proper installation.
Once the appliance is positioned,adjust the feet (screwing them in or out) to adjust the
height of the dishwasher, making it level. In any case ,the appliance should not be inclined
more than 2 .
Insert the drain hose into a drain pipe with a minimum diameter of 4 cm, or let it run into the sink, making sure to avoid bending
or crimping it. Use the special plastic support that comes with the appliance. The free end of the hose must be at a height
between 40 and 100cm and must not be immersed in water.
If the sink is 34 or higher from the floor, the excesswater in Unicouple hoses
cannot be drained directly into the sink. It will be necessary to drain excess
water from hoses into a bowl or suitable container that is heldoutside and lower
than the sink.
