1. IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
INTRODUCTION
Please read this user manual and
particularly the safety instructions
completely and carefully. They will save you
time and effort and help to ensure optimum
dishwasher performance.
WARNING
When using the dishwasher, follow
basic precautions, including the
following:
Read all instructions before using the
dishwasher! Save these operating
instructions and pass them on to any
future user.
 Use the dishwasher only for its intended
purpose as described in this user
manual. This appliance is intended for
normal household use only.
• The manufacturer disclaims
responsibility for damage or injury
caused by improper use of this
appliance.
 The information in this user manual must
be followed to minimize the risk of fire
or explosion and to prevent property
damage, personal injury or loss of life.
 Do not operate your dishwasher unless
all the enclosure panels are properly in
place.
 Do not tamper with the controls.
 Do not abuse, sit on, stand in or on the
door or dish rack of the dishwasher.
 The cup racks are designed to support
cups, glasses and kitchen utensils. When
the cup racks are in the dishwasher
do not lean on or use the cup racks to
support your body weight.
 To reduce the risk of injury, do not
allow children to play in, on or near the
dishwasher.
 Use only detergents or rinse aids
recommended for use in a household
dishwasher and keep them in a dry place
out of the reach of children. Check that
the detergent dispenser is empty after
the completion of each wash program.
 Dishwasher detergents are alkaline.
They can be dangerous if inhaled or

CAUTION
Notice
WARNING:
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, could result in death
or serious injury.
CAUTION :
Indicates a potentially hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, may result in injury.
It may also be used to alert against unsafe
practices.

when the door is opened. Consult a
doctor immediately if detergent has been
swallowed or inhaled.
 Do not drink water from the dishwasher!
Harmful residues could be present.
 Under certain conditions hydrogen gas
may be produced in a hot water heater
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 period, before using
the dishwasher turn on all hot water
taps and let the water flow from each for
several minutes. This will release any
accumulated hydrogen gas. As gas is
flammable, do not smoke or use an open
flame during this time.
 Do not store or use flammable liquids or
vapors in the area of the dishwasher.
 When loading items to be washed,
position sharp items so that they are
not likely to damage the door seal and
load sharp knives with the handles up to
reduce the risk of cut-type injuries.
 Do not wash plastic items unless they
are marked “dishwasher safe” or the
equivalent. For plastic items not so
marked, check the manufacturer’s
recommendations.
 If a malfunction occurs, switch off the
appliance and turn off the water supply to
the dishwasher.
 Before cleaning or carrying out
maintenance, switch off the appliance,
disconnect the power plug and turn off
the water supply.
 Repairs and technical modifications must
be carried out exclusively by a qualified
technician.
 If the dishwasher is not in use for an
extended period of time (i.e. vacation
home), we recommend you check that
the baskets are empty, leave the inside
of the dishwasher clean, leave the door
cracked open to allow air to circulate and
turn off both the power and water supply
to the dishwasher.

2. INSTALLATION
WARNING
When installing the dishwasher, follow
basic precautions, including the
following:
 The dishwasher installation must be
performed in accordance with the
installation manual. If you did not
receive an installation manual order it by
calling 1-800-287-8799 or you may also
download it from our web site at
www.summitappliances.com
 Installation, maintenance and repair
should be performed by a qualified
installer. Work by unqualified persons
could be dangerous and may void the
warranty.
 Do not operate the appliance if damaged,
malfunctioning, partially disassembled or
if it has missing or broken parts.
 Before installation or service, disconnect
the power supply to the work area by
unplugging the unit, "tripping" the circuit
breaker or removing the fuse.
 Only connect the dishwasher to the
power supply when all installation and
plumbing work is complete.
 Do not install or store the dishwasher
where it can be exposed to below
freezing temperatures or exposed to
weather.
 Dishwasher must be secured to adjacent
cabinetry using the brackets provided.
Failure to do this may cause damage to
property or bodily injury.
 Connect to a properly rated, protected
and sized power supply circuit to avoid
electrical overload. The dishwasher is
designed for an electrical supply of 120 V
(volts), 60 Hz (hertz), AC, connected to a
dishwasher-dedicated, properly grounded
electrical circuit with a fuse or breakers
rated for 15 amperes. Electrical supply
conductors shall be a minimum of # 14
AWG copper wire rated at 75 °C (167
°F) or higher. These requirements must
be met to prevent injury and machine
damage. Consult a qualified electrician if
3
in doubt.
 Do not use any extension cord or
portable outlet device to connect the
dishwasher to a power supply.
WARNING
Danger of suffocation!
Ensure that any plastic wrappings, bags,
small pieces etc. are disposed of safely
and kept out of the reach of children.
 Remove the door to the washing
compartment when removing an old
dishwasher from service or discarding it.
Ensure that the appliance presents no
danger to children while being stored for
disposal.
 Old appliances may contain materials
that can be recycled. Please contact
your local recycling authority about the
possibility of recycling these materials.

 The detergent container holds a total of
40 ml / 8 tsp of detergent 1.
 Marking lines on the inside of the
detergent container aid in providing the
correct amount of detergent. When the
dishwasher is fully loaded and the dishes
are very dirty, we recommend filling the
detergent container up to the 25 ml /
5 tsp mark. When the dishes are less
dirty, it is generally sufficient to fill the
detergent up to the 15 ml / 3 tsp mark.
 The detergent amounts for the individual
cleaning programs are shown in the
"Quick Reference Guide - Program
Table".
 Fill amounts given are for standard
powder detergent. Amounts may vary if
you use liquid or concentrated powder
detergent. Tablet detergents should be
placed in detergent container 1. With the

USA
Notice :
 Only use rinse aids suited for use in
dishwashers. Rinse aids allow washing
water to rinse off more cleanly and
prevent watermarks or streaks on the
dishes.
• If you use "2 in 1" or "3 in 1"
detergents / tabs, you do not need
additional rinse aid.
1. Open the rinse aid dispenser by pressing
the lock B.
2. Carefully pour in rinse aid to the MAX
mark.
3. Close the lid until it clicks in 3.
4. Carefully wipe off spilled rinse aid.
Excessive rinse aid causes excessive
foam formation, which may hinder
cleaning.
SET THE DOSE OF RINSE AID
The dose of rinse aid to be used can be
set by means of the dispenser regulator 4
between levels 1 and 6.
Change the setting, only if the following
applies after washing:
 Watermarks are visible on the dishes:
Set dosage higher.
 Streaks are visible on the dishes: Set

any special softening salt. In this case the 'salt' control indicator lights up continually
(depending on model).
· If your local hardness level exceeds 47 American degree of hardness, you should consider
getting a water softening device for your dishwasher. If you use stream water or rainwater,
you are advised to install filters.

What if the dishwasher will not run :
 Is the machine plugged in?
 Are all fuses operative?
 Is the water supply fully turned on?
 Is the dishwasher door closed securely?
 Have you pressed the On/Off button?
What if the dishwasher starts but fails to circulate water within 5 seconds :
 Cancel the program by pressing the Start/Pause button for 5 seconds. See section 6. or
Quick Reference Guide.
What if the door will not stay down in open position :

when the dishes are only hand warm. Empty the
lower rack first. This prevents water from dripping
off dishes in the upper rack.
 Wrong program selection
 In short period programs, the wash temperature
and therefore the cleaning performance is lower.
Choose a program with a longer washing time.
 Washing cutlery with worn
surface.
