Before use
Before using your dishwasher for the first time:
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. fill the salt container
5. fill the rinse aid dispenser.
Setting the water softener
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,
German, 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 4.
If this level is not suitable for your area the softener
should be adjusted.

Filling with salt
If your water is "level 0" it is already soft and therefore
there is no need to use salt. (In this case the salt refill
indicator light will remain illuminated).
Salt must be used from "level 1" upward.
If you use phosphate free detergents containing
enzymes, add salt in the water softener starting from
4°dH (7°TH).
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 one of the
complete washing programmes (not the Rinse and Hold
programme). This will prevent any grains of salt or salty
water, which may have been spilled, remaining on the
bottom of the machine for any period of time, which
may cause corrosion.
To fill:
1. To fill with salt, unscrew the cap of the salt
container.
2. Pour about 1 litre of water inside the container,
or until it is full (this is necessary only before
filling with salt for the first time).
3. Then using the funnel provided, pour in the salt
until the container is full (approx. 1.5 - 1.8 kg).
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.
5. Screw on the cap tightly.
LT

SR07
The salt container will require topping up periodically.
You are reminded of this by the "Salt refill indicator
light" on the control panel which comes on when the salt
has finished.
The "Salt refill 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.

Rinse aid
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse,
ensuring thorough rinsing, 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.
Filling with Rinse Aid:
1. Open the container by turning the lid (A)
anticlockwise.
A
2. Add the rinse aid until the container is
completely full (approx. 110 ml). The indicator
(B) will be completely dark.
BR01
3. Top up the rinse aid when the rinse aid indicator
light on the control panel flashes.

Do not put liquid detergent in the rinse aid department.
Clean up any rinse aid spilt during filling with an
absorbent cloth to avoid excess foaming during the next
wash.

Adjusting the dose
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). (Start from position 3). Gradually
increase the dose if there are drops of water or lime
spots on the dishes after washing. Reduce it if there are
sticky whitish streaks on the dishes.

Use of detergent
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.
DE07
To fill the dishwasher with detergent
proceed as follows:
1. Open the dispenser lid by pulling the catch (D).
2. Add the detergent according to the
recommendations in the programme chart. As
all detergents are not the same, you should
also consult the instructions on the packet.
To help correctly dose the right amount of
detergent, inside the container there are two
reference marks:
- MIN
- MAX
DE02
= 15 ml
= 30 ml
3. Always close the lid.
4. If the programme has a prewash add the
required detergent over the lid of the dispenser.
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
In these compact powders the environmently 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 "Bio" programmes you can therefore
achieve the same cleaning results that would otherwise
be achievable only with 65°C programmes and
conventional detergents.
For best results we recommend the use of Finish detergents, rinse aid and salt.

Using your appliance
Loading your appliance
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.
Open the door and slide out the baskets to load the
dishes.
The lower basket
The lower basket is designed to take saucepans, lids,
plates (up to 27 cm in diameter), 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.
UI39
IEC 436 / DIN 44990
The two rear rows of prongs on the lower basket can be
easily lowered to allow you to load pots, pans and
bowls.
To lower the prongs:
- Slightly pull them upward and let them drop down
(see picture)
- To bring them back to the standing position, just pull
them up again.
UI21
UI18

PBA10UK
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.
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.
Mix spoons with other cutlery to prevent them from
sticking together.
Silver cutlery tends to go black if mixed with steel
cutlery. Place it in the cutlery basket separate from the
others.
Teaspoons may be loaded into the special slots provided
in the cutlery basket handle.
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.
UI07

PBA11UK
The upper basket
The upper basket is designed for plates (dessert plates,
saucers, dinner plates of up to 24 cm in diameter), salad
bowls, cups and glasses.
Glasses with long stems can be placed upside down in
the raised cup racks.
Larger plates (dinner plates up to 24 cm in diameter)
must be loaded in the front part of the upper basket.
Light items (plastic bowls etc.) should be loaded in the
upper basket and arranged so they do not move.
US11
IEC 436 / DIN 44990
Before closing the door, ensure that
the spray arms can rotate freely.
After loading or unloading your
machine always close the door, as an
open door can be a hazard.
US27
Caution
To ensure proper water distribution to
the upper basket, do not place dishes
over the hole in the SID in the centre
of the basket.
US04

PBA15UK
Adjusting the height of the
upper basket
If washing very large plates (over 27 cm and up to 31
cm in diameter) you can load them in the lower basket
after moving the upper basket to the higher position.
To move to the higher position proceed as
follows:
1. Pull out the basket until it stops.
2. Carefully lift both sides upwards until the
mechanism is engaged and the basket is stable.
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.
RC02
To lower the basket to the original
position:
1. Pull out the basket until it stops.
2. Carefully lift both sides upwards and then allow the
mechanism to drop back down slowly, keeping hold
of it.
Never lift or lower the basket on one side
only.

PBA16UK
Hints and tips
To save energy
Items not suitable for
dishwashers:
Place dishes in the machine immediately after every
meal and wait until the dishwasher is full before
washing.
The following items should not be
washed in the dishwasher (unless they
are sold as dishwasher proof):
If necessary run the Rinse and Hold programme (see
"Washing Programmes" chart on the following page),
so that any food scraps do not become caked on the
dishes while you are waiting to run the complete wash
programme.
- 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
Do not prewash dishes under running water.
For best washing results:
Before loading remove all scraps of food and soak
very heavily soiled pots and pans.
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.
Arrange saucepans, cups and glasses etc. upsidedown.
Tilt items with convex or concave surfaces so that the
water drains off easily.
Avoid contact between the dishes as far as possible.
You will improve drying results by leaving the
dishwasher door ajar for at least 15-30 minutes as
soon as the programme finishes.
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.
If in doubt check with manufacturer
of the item.
When buying new dishes, ensure
that they are dishwasher proof.

Maintenance and cleaning
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

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.

Check that the SID is not clogged with detergent
residue. If necessary, rinse it under running water after
having removed it from the basket by twisting it
anticlockwise and pulling it upwards.
Fasten it back onto the support by turning it clockwise.
Never use your dishwasher without
the SID dispenser.
Since SID also ensures correct
distribution of the water to the upper
spray arm, running the dishwasher
without it will impair the washing
results.
MA07
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....).
Prolonged periods of nonoperation
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
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.
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.

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.
Your local Water Authority will advise you on the
average mains pressure in your area.
The dishwasher features fill and drain hoses which can

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 filter.
