Testing programme for EN 50242. (see "Hints for test centres").
** This is a special programme for quick washing a full load of lightly soiled dishes, glasses and crockery (except pots) so
that you may re-use them promptly.
15
Operating sequence
1. Check the filters
9. At the end of the washing
programme
Ensure that they are clean and properly positioned.
(See "Maintenance and cleaning" - Instruction
book - part 1)
At the end of the programme the dishwasher will
automatically stop.
The On/Off indicator light remains on until the On/Off
push button is depressed.
2. Check that there is rinse aid and
salt
10. Switch off the dishwasher
(See "Instruction book" - part 1)
Switch off the dishwasher by pressing the On/Off
push button.
3. Load the dishes
Wait 15/20 minutes before opening the
dishwasher’s door; in this way you will avoid
burning yourself when removing the dishes and
avoid also the damage of the nearby furniture
caused by the escape of steam.
Remove any scraps of food.
Pull the lower basket out and arrange the
saucepans, plates and cutlery in it.
Pull the upper basket out and arrange the plates,
saucers, glasses and cups etc. in it.
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.
Slide the baskets back into the machine.
4. Ensure that the spray arms can
rotate freely
When the washing programme has finished, it
is recommended that the dishwasher is
unplugged and the water tap turned off.
In general it is not advisable to open the door
while the machine is working; if the door is
opened however, a safety device ensures that
the machine stops.
5. Measure out detergent
Add the detergent into the dispenser according to
the dosage quantity given in the "Washing
programmes" chart.
Close the detergent dispenser lid.
Important!
Care must be taken if the door is opened during
the hot phase or immediately after a
programme has finished, as steam may escape.
6. Set the programme
The selection of the programme occurs with the door
partially opened.
Turn the programme selector dial clockwise until
the letter of the programme you wish to select
corresponds with the programme marker on the
control panel.
If necessary select the temperature of the main
wash (or a half load programme) according to the
instructions in the "Washing programmes" chart
(see "Required push buttons").
7. Start the programme
Depress the On/Off push button.
The On/Off indicator light will come on and the
machine will start.
If you wish to interrupt the washing programme at
any time press this button again.
8. Close the dishwasher door

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.
UI48
The lower basket
The lower basket is designed to take saucepans, lids,
plates, salad bowls, cutlery etc.
Large dishes and lids should be arranged around the edge
of the basket, ensuring that the upper spray arm can turn
freely.
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:
UI21
- Slightly pull them upwards and let them drop down (see
picture).
- To bring them back to the standing position, just pull them
up again.
UI85
17
UI18
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.
UI63
Silver cutlery tends to go black if mixed with steel cutlery.
Place it in the cutlery basket separate from the others.
For best results we recommend you to use the cutlery grids
provided (if the size and dimensions of cutlery allow it).
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.
UI62
The upper basket
The upper basket is designed for plates (dessert plates,
saucers, dinner plates of up to 25 cm in diameter), salad
bowls, cups and glasses.
Arrange items on and underneath the fold-down cup racks
so that water can reach all surfaces.
Light items (plastic bowls etc.) should be loaded in the upper
basket and arranged so they do not move.
In case that plates are loaded in the upper
basket:
US47
load them starting from the rear posiitons of the basket;
tilting them slightly forwards and avoiding the front positions
near the door.
Before closing the door, ensure that the
spray arms can rotate freely.
US71
18
Adjusting the height of the upper
basket
If washing very large plates (over 27 cm and up to 32 cm in
diameter) you can load them in the lower basket after
moving the upper basket to the higher position.
Attention!
Never lift or lower the basket on one side only.
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.
RC04
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 cup racks.
To lower the basket to the original position proceed as
follows:
1. Pull out the basket until it stops.
2. Carefully lift both sides upwards and the allow the
mechanism to drop back slowly, keeping hold of it.
After loading your machine always close the
door, as an open door can be a hazard.

Fitting under a counter
(kitchen worktop or sink)
By removing the machine’s worktop, you can install it under
a close fitting sink unit or a pre-existing top, providing the
dimensions of the recess correspond to those shown in the
picture.
820
570
Proceed as follows:
- Remove the machine’s worktop by unscrewing the
two rear retaining screws, pull from the front and
slide out the rear slots, lifting the worktop.
600
Insert the machine after adjusting height and levelling with
the adjustable feet. When inserting the machine, ensure that
the water inlet and drain hoses are not kinked or squashed.
IN05
Levelling
Good levelling is essential for correct closure and sealing of
the door.
When the appliance is correctly levelled, the door will not
catch on the levelling spacers on either side of the cabinet.
If the door does not close correctly, loosen or tighten the
adjustable feet until the machine is perfectly level.
The WRD detergent dispenser
If the programme has a prewash add the required detergent
in the WRD detergent dispenser, located in the centre of the
upper basket.
Check that the WRD 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.
DE13
Fasten it back onto the support by turning it clockwise.
Never use your dishwasher without the WRD
dispenser.
Since WRD also ensures correct distribution of
the water to the upper spray arm, running the
dishwasher without it will impair the washing
results.
