OPTIONS
The options are controlled by the OPTION
SELECTION button (3).
Press the button to access the procedure,
confirmed by flashing of one of the OPTIONS
lights (E).
N.B.: The PROGRAM DELAY light only comes on when the specific
PROGRAM DELAY button (5) is pressed.
Press the SELECT OPTIONS button (5) again to display the next option. To
confirm an option, press the CONFIRM OPTION button (6) (the light stops

All options except "Flexi Tabs" are disabled at the end of the wash cycle.
Flexi Tabs
Ideal for multi-function detergents, this option allows washing to be
optimised, with full benefits from the combined-action tablets. When this
option is activated, any salt and rinse aid in the relative containers will
not be used.
If the option is not provided, we recommend the use of conventional
products (separate detergent, salt and rinse aid), because with
conventional washing cycles, combined products might create problems
such as a white deposit, poor drying results and residues left on dishes.
N.B.:
When the salt and rinse aid containers are empty, the relative lights will
remain on even if the “Flexi Tabs” option is selected.
IMPORTANT:
when no longer required, the option must be deactivated by pressing
the relative button (the light goes out).
If the water hardness has been set on a value above H3, and the “Flexi
Tbas” option is activated, the relative light flashes, warning of a setting
error. Multi-function products are not suitable for use with very "hard"
water; this does not prevent the use of the option, but the washing
results might not be of the best.

User instructions
HYCLEAN
Increases the temperature of the final hot rinse to 70°C to ensure a further
reduction in the bacteria level. If the temperature in the tank falls during this
stage of the program (e.g. because the door is opened or due to a power
blackout), the light of the option and the program lights flash to warn that the
additional washing phase has not been completed successfully. This does
not mean that the wash program has been less effective than usual.
SPREAD HALF LOAD
Suitable when there are not many dishes to be washed, it saves energy
and reduces the program duration. Place dishes in both baskets then
load the detergent dispenser than less than the normal amount for a full
load.
TO SAVE ON ENERGY! … AND PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
•
•
•
•
•
Always try to run the dishwasher fully loaded.
Do not wash the dishes in running water.
Use the washing program that is most appropriate for each type of
load.
Do not carry out any preliminary rinsing.
If available, connect the dishwasher to a hot water supply up to
60°C.
TO CUT DOWN ON DETERGENT CONSUMPTION! … AND PROTECT
THE ENVIRONMENT
The phosphates contained in dishwasher detergents are harmful to the
environment. To avoid using excessive amounts of detergent and to
save on electricity, observe the following:
•
•
separate the more delicate items from dishes that are more
resistant to aggressive detergents and high temperatures;
do not pour the detergent directly on the dishes.
11
User instructions
ENERGY MANAGEMENT
After 5 minutes of waiting (washing cycle completed, stopped or set but
not started) the dishwasher switches to a standby state to reduce
energy consumption.
In this state, the dishwasher indicator panel (lights or display depending
on model) functions more slowly (switch-on once every 5 seconds).
REMOVING THE DISHES
At the end of the washing program, wait at least 20 minutes before
removing the dishes, to allow them to cool down. To prevent any water
droplets on the upper basket from falling on the dishes in the lower
basket, it is advisable to unload the lower basket first, and then the
upper basket.

2. Operating instructions
Once the dishwasher has been correctly installed, prepare for use as
follows:
•
•
•
2.1
Adjust the water softening system;
Add the regenerating salt;
Add the rinse aid and detergent.
Using the water softening system
The amount of scale contained in the
water (water hardness index) can cause
whitish staining on the dry dishes, which
tend to become dull over time. The
dishwasher is equipped with an automatic
softening system which uses a special
regenerating salt to reduce the hardness
of the water.
The dishwasher is factory set for water
hardness level 3 (average hardness
41-60°dF – 24-31°dH ).
SALT
When using water of medium hardness, the regenerating salt container
should be refilled after approximately 20 washing cycles. The salt
container can hold approximately 1.7 Kg of salt in grains. The container
is situated at the bottom of the dishwasher. After removing the lower
basket, unscrew the salt container cap by turning it anticlockwise and
pour in the salt using the funnel supplied with the dishwasher. Before
replacing the cap, remove any salt residues from around the opening.
•
When using the dishwasher for the first time, in addition to the salt it
is also necessary to add one litre of water to the container.
•
Each time the salt container is refilled, make sure that the cap is
securely closed. The mixture of water and detergent must never
penetrate the salt container, as this would compromise the operation
of the regeneration system. In the event of this occurring, the
warranty will be invalidated.
•
Only use regenerating salt specially formulated for domestic
dishwashers. If using salt tablets, do not fill the container
completely.
13
User instructions
•
Do not use table salt as it contains insoluble substances which,
over time, may damage the water softening system.
•
When necessary, refill the regenerating salt container before
starting the washing program. In this way, the excess saline
solution will be immediately removed by the water; the prolonged
presence of salt water inside the tank may lead to corrosion.
Be careful not to confuse the salt and detergent packages; adding
detergent to the salt container will damage the water softening system.
ADDITIONAL FUNCTIONS (Customizing the consumer parameters)
(available in all programs except the soak program)
The electronic control system allows personalizing the machine use
directly through a programming procedure not directly accessible that
allows: regulate water hardness level.
To access the programming environment, the appliance must be turned
on with the door open. Then proceed as follows:
•
press the PROGRAM DELAY button (5) until the H symbol appears
on the display, followed by the number currently set (e.g. H3)
•
press the PROGRAM DELAY (5) button the number of times
needed to select the right setting level for the hardness of the water
(H0, H1, H2, H3, H4, H5);
N.B.: after few seconds the appliance exits the parameter setting menu
automatically.

2.2
Using the rinse aid and detergent dispensers
The detergent and rinse aid
dispensers are situated on the inner
part of the door: the detergent
dispenser is on the left, and the
rinse aid dispenser is on the right.
With the exception of the SOAK program, before every washing cycle it
is necessary to add the required amount of detergent to the detergent
dispenser. The rinse aid, on the other hand, should only be added as
required.
15
User instructions
ADDING THE RINSE AID
The rinse aid helps the dishes dry faster and
prevents the formation of scale deposits and
staining; it is automatically added to the water
during the final rinse cycle, from the container
situated on the inner side of the door.
To add rinse aid:
•
Open the door.
•
Rotate the container cap anticlockwise by ¼ of a turn and remove it.
•
Add the rinse aid until the container is full (approximately 140 cc).
The optical level indicator on the side of the cap should be
completely obscured. Refill the rinse aid when the optical level
indicator becomes clear again, or when the rinse aid warning light
illuminates.
•
Replace the cover and turn it in a clockwise direction.
•
Use a cloth to remove any spillage of rinse aid which might lead to
the formation of excess foam.
ADJUSTING THE RINSE AID DISPENSER SETTING
The dishwasher is factory set for medium water hardness. However it
possible to change the setting by turning the dispenser’s selector to the
desired position: the amount of rinse aid dispensed is proportional to the
selector position.
•
•
•
•
•
16
To adjust the rinse aid setting, rotate the dispenser cap through a
quarter turn in an anticlockwise direction and remove it.
Then use a screwdriver to rotate the rinse aid selector to the desired
position.
Replace the cap, turning it clockwise.
The amount of rinse aid must be increased if the washed dishes
appear dull or feature circular stains.
If, on the other hand, the dishes are sticky or have white streaks, it
is necessary to reduce the rinse aid setting.
User instructions
ADDING THE DETERGENT
To open the detergent dispenser cap, lightly press
the button P. Add the detergent and close the cap
carefully.
During the washing cycle, the dispenser will be
opened automatically.
•
•
•
•
•
•
When a program with hot prewash is selected (see program table),
extra detergent must be placed in the cavity G/H (depending on
models).
Use only detergents specially formulated for dishwashers. For optimal
washing results it is important to use a good quality detergent.
The detergent packs must be sealed and stored in a dry place to
prevent the formation of lumps which may negatively affect washing
results. Once opened the detergent packs should not be kept for too
long, otherwise the detergent loses its effectiveness.
Do not use detergents formulated for washing dishes by hand,
because they produce a great deal of foam and may negatively affect
the operation of the dishwasher.
Add the correct amount of detergent. An insufficient amount of
detergent will result in a partial removal of dirt from the dishes,
whereas an excessive amount is wasteful and does not improve the
washing results.
The market offers liquid and powder detergents with differing chemical
compositions, which may contain phosphates, or be phosphate-free
but contain natural enzymes.
- Detergents containing phosphates are more effective against
grease and starch at temperatures above 60°C .
- Enzyme detergents, on the other hand, are also effective at lower
temperatures (from 40 to 55°C ) and are more easily
biodegradable. With enzyme detergents it is possible to obtain at
low temperatures comparable results to those which can only be
achieved at 65°C using traditional detergents.
For the safeguarding of the environment we recommend the use of
phosphate- and chlorine free detergents.
17
User instructions
The introduction of detergent into the rinse aid dispenser, even in
liquid form, will damage the dishwasher.
2.3
General warnings and recommendations
Before using the dishwasher for the first time, it is advisable to read the
following recommendations concerning dish types to be washed and
their loading.
There are generally no constraints on the washing of domestic dishes,
but in certain cases it is necessary to take their characteristics into
account.
Before loading the dishes into the baskets it is necessary to:
•
remove coarse food remains: e.g. bones, fish-bones, etc. which
may clog the filter or damage the wash pump.
•
soak any pots or pans with burnt-on food remains on the bottom to
facilitate removal, then load them into the LOWER BASKET.
There is no need to pre-wash the dishes under running water before
loading them into the baskets since this only wastes water.
Correct loading of the dishes helps ensure optimal washing
results.
18
User instructions
WARNING!
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure that the dishes are securely in place so that they cannot
tip over or obstruct the rotation of the spray arms during the
washing cycle.
Do not place very small objects in the baskets as these could fall
and obstruct the spray arms or the wash pump.
Containers such as cups, bowls, glasses and pots should always
be loaded with the opening facing downwards and with any cavities
at an angle, to allow the water to drain out.
Do not stack dishes or place them in such a way that they cover
one other.
Do not place glasses too close together because they may knock
against each other and break, or there might be staining at the
point where they touch.
MAKE SURE that the items being washed are dishwasher-safe.
Items which are not dishwasher-safe:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Wooden dishes, pots or pans: these may be damaged by the
high washing temperatures.
Handcrafted items: these are rarely suitable for washing in a
dishwasher. The relatively high water temperatures and the
detergents used may damage them.
Plastic dishes: heat resistant plastic dishes must be washed in the
upper basket.
Dishes and objects in copper, tin, zinc or brass: these tend to
stain.
Aluminium dishes: items made from anodised aluminium may
lose their colour.
Silverware: silver items may stain.
Glass and crystal: in general, glass and crystal objects can be
washed in the dishwasher. However, certain types of glass and
crystal may become dull and lose their clearness after many
washings. Therefore, for these items we recommend using the
least aggressive program available.
Decorated items: the decorated objects available on the market
are generally able to withstand washing in the dishwasher,
although the colours may fade after a great many washes. If in
doubt as to the fastness of the colours, it is advisable to wash just a
few items at a time for approximately one month.

2.4
Using the baskets
The dishwasher has a capacity of 13 place-settings, including serving
dishes.
LOWER BASKET
The lower basket receives the full force of the lower spray arm, and
should therefore be used for the “toughest” items with a heavier degree
of soiling.
All types and combinations of loads are
permitted, provided that the dishes, pots and
pans are arranged with all the soiled surfaces
exposed to the water jets coming from the
bottom.
With fixed supports
To make the most of the space inside the
basket when loading large items, certain
models are equipped with tip-up supports for
plates in 2 or 4 sections.
With tip-up supports
BOTTOM BASKET INSERTS
Some models are equipped with bottom basket inserts which improve
the drying of dishes. The inserts are supplied in the accessories bag; to
use them, simply fit them into place as shown.

When removing the filter, take care that there are no food residues
on it. If any residues fall into the washing pit they might block
hydraulic components, or foul the spray arm nozzles.
•
It is essential to thoroughly clean the filters according to the
above instructions: the dishwasher cannot function if the filters are
clogged.
•
Carefully replace the filters in their seats, to avoid damaging the
wash pump.
PROLONGED DISUSE:

Run the soak program twice in succession.
•
Unplug the power cord from the socket.
•
Leave the door slightly open, in order to prevent the formation of
unpleasant odours inside the washing tank.
•

User instructions
If the dishes fail to dry or remain dull, check that:
•
•
•
there is rinse aid inside the special container;
the rinse aid dispenser setting is correct;
the detergent used is of good quality and has not lost its
effectiveness (for example, through incorrect storage, with the box
left open).
If the dishes show signs of streaking, staining, etc., check that:
•
the rinse aid dispenser setting is not too high.
If there are visible traces of rust inside the tank:
•
•
•
the tank is made of steel, and therefore any rust marks are due to
external elements (fragments of rust from the water pipes, pots,
cutlery, etc.). Special products are commercially available to remove
such marks;
check that the amount of detergent being used is correct. Certain
detergents can be more corrosive than others.
check that the cap of the salt container is securely closed, and that
the water softening setting is correct.
If after following the above troubleshooting instructions the problem
persists, call the nearest After-Sales Centre.
