Installation Section 2. Safety Advice Section 3. Operating the Appliance Section 4. Maintenance 4 Section 1. Installation • Position the appliance in a dry, well ventilated room with a solid level floor. The room temperature must not fall below +5° or rise above +35°. • This appliance is fitted with adjustable feet so that you can ensure it is sitting level. Adjust the feet by turning left or right until the appliance is level. • The adjustable feet must never be removed. • Plug the 3pin moulded plug into a nearby 13amp plug socket. Always make sure that you can easily gain access to switch the power on or off at the plug socket. • N.B. This appliance must be earthed! • If you have installed this appliance underneath a work surface the plug socket • • • • • • • should have a fused switch located above the work surface so that you can easily switch the appliance on or off. You are advised to turn the power off at the plugsocket when you have finished using your appliance. Before using the appliance for the first time, you must set the water softener, add salt, add rinse aid and add detergent. Your plumber will connect the water hose (supplied) to the water inlet connection at the rear of the appliance and to an adjacent cold water supply. It is your responsibility to ensure that the supplied washers have been used and that both connections are water tight. Ensure water pressure is within the range specified on the Rating Label. Your plumber will connect the water drain pipe to an adjacent sink (see Pic.1 below) Ensure that the water hose and water drain pipe are not kinked when the appliance is pushed into place. If either of these pipes is kinked the appliance will not operate correctly. Ensure that the appliance is not standing on the power cable or hoses. Do not use the water inlet hose of your old machine. Use the new water inlet hose and connect the hose directly to the water inlet tap. The pressure supplied by the tap should be a minimum of 0.03 Mpa and at a maximum of 1 Mpa. If the water pressure is above 1 Mpa, a pressure relief valve should be fitted. After the connections are made, the tap should be turned on fully and checked that it is water tight. You should always turn off the water inlet tap after a wash programme is finished. Note: An Aquastop water hose is used in some models. In such circumstances, heavy tension will exist. Do not cut the Aquastop water hose and do not let it get folded or twisted. 5 Water Outlet Hose The water drain hose can be connected either directly to the water drain hole or to the sink outlet spigot using a special bent pipe (if available). The hose connection should be at a minimum of 50cm and at a maximum of 110 cm from the floor. Please note that a drain hose longer than 4m must not be used as it may prevent the appliance from washing correctly. 6 Section 2. Safety Advice • This appliance is manufactured and intended for DOMESTIC use only. Any • • • • • • • guarantee offered with the appliance is not valid for any installation in a commercial environment. This appliance MUST BE EARTHED! Never try and disconnect the power by pulling the supply cable – hold the plug firmly and pull it out of the socket. Never touch the plug or power cable with wet hands. Check the power cable periodically for signs of damage and ensure that it is not trapped underneath the appliance. If the cable is damaged, turn off the power at the socket and arrange for a qualified electrician to replace the cable. Never remove the power cable, open the appliance cabinet or try to modify the appliance in any way. All service work must be carried out by a qualified electrician. The appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance. Ensure that the appliance is sited well away from other heat sources, i.e. open fires, boilers etc and in a dry, well ventilated room. The temperature must not fall below +5° or rise above +35°. • Do not sit on the appliance or stand on the open door – the appliance could tip forwards. • Keep children away from detergent and rinse aid, keep children away from the open door of the dishwasher, there could still be some detergent left inside. • This appliance is not a toy – ensure that children are supervised at all times whilst in the vicinity of thisappliance. • Take care when loading the baskets with knives and cutlery. Always ensure that sharp points are pointing away from you or down into the basket. • Only wash crockery and utensils that are clearly marked ‘dishwasher safe’. • Do not wash plastic items unless they are clearly marked ‘dishwasher safe’. • Only use dishwasher detergents and rinse aid clearly marked for use with automatic dishwashers. • Never use non dishwasher detergent in this appliance, i.e. hand soap, washing machine detergent, washing up liquid etc. • Always add dishwasher salt to your dishwasher, even when using 3-in-1 tablets. This will help protect your appliance against limescale. • If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard. 7 Section 3. Operating the Appliance 3.1. Before Operating the Appliance 3.1.1. Adding Salt • • • • • • Remove the lower basket and then unscrew the salt container cap (1). Add water and approximately 1kg of specialist dishwasher salt to the container until almost overflowing. N.B. It is normal for a small amount of water to come out of the container whilst filling it with salt. Note: Fill the salt compartment with water at first use only. Now replace the screw cap correctly and ensure that it is tight. If not, salt may leak into the dishwasher chamber which can be detrimental to the stainless steel interior. This is not covered by the manufacturers guarantee. After adding salt you should run a programme immediately to activate the water softener and flush away any salt spilled into the machine. If salt is low the indicator light will show on the control panel. 3.1.2. Adding Rinse Aid 8 • • • • Remove the Rinse Aid Filler Cap (1). Add Rinse Aid until the rinse aid level indicator becomes dark (2). Replace the Filler Cap (3). If the rinse aid level is sufficient the indicator light will be dark on the control panel (2B). If more rinse aid is required the indicator will be light (2A). 3.1.3. Adding Detergent Use specialist dishwasher detergent powder or dishwasher tablets in this appliance. However, please note that tablets do not always dissolve fully during shorter wash programmes, so you are advised to operate your appliance on a longer wash programme if using tablets. In addition, the use of tablets may result in spots appearing on dishes and glasses. Push the latch to open the detergent container as shown in image 1. The detergent pod has “level” lines inside to help measure the amount of detergent you use. The pod can take a total of 40cm³ of detergent. If your dishes are heavily soiled pour 25cm³ of detergent into the larger compartment (b), if they are less soiled use only 15cm³. If the programme selected has a pre-wash cycle you should add 5cm³ of detergent to the pre-wash compartment (a). If using combined detergents, make sure to check the specifications on the product to ensure that it is appropriate for the wash programme, your machine and the level of hardness of the mains water. 9 3.1.4. Combined Detergent – Recommended Usage If you are using a combined detergent, add a rinse aid agent to your machine and switch the rinse agent setting to its lowest position (1) and activate the tablet detergent button in order to obtain better results. Depending on the water hardness you may need to fill the salt container with salt. We do not recommended using 3 in 1 tablets on fast or rapid programmes as the tablet may not fully dissolve. For these programs we suggest using normal dishwasher powder. 3.1.5.

Upper Basket There are folding racks on the upper basket of your machine. You can use these racks in an open or closed position depending on whether you want to place cups, long glasses, or cutlery on them Ensure that items are not blocking the rotation of the top spray arm. Upper Basket Height Adjustment The upper baskets location can be altered as shown in the image to the left. The benefit of this is by dropping or moving the basket up in the machine you will have more space either below or above for larger items. In order to change the height, remove the basket by shifting the clip at the end of the rail to the side. You can then reposition the basket on the other wheels, do not forget to shift the clip at the end of the rail back into position to lock the basket and prevent it from sliding out. 12 3.3.2.
