Using your dishwasher
Before first use
o Install the appliance as per the installation instructions contained
within this booklet.
o Fill the water softener with 1 litre of tap water and then fill with
specialist dishwasher salt. After this you should set the water
softener level.
o Fill the rinse aid dispenser and then set the rinse aid dosage.
Filling with dishwasher salt
IMPORTANT: You should only use salt that is specially
designed for use in a dishwasher. If any other type of
salt is used in the appliance (in particular table salt),
it will damage the water softener.
o Ideally you should fill the water softener with salt, just before
you are about to run a wash program. This will help to clear any
salt that may have overflowed from the water softener during
the salt filling process.
o Open the door of the dishwasher and then remove the lower
basket. The basket should be empty when you remove it.
o Turn the water softener cap anticlockwise and remove it.
o Pour 1 litre of water into the water softener.
12
IMPORTANT: It is only necessary to do this when you fill
the container with salt for the first time.
o Pour salt into the water softener, using the funnel that is
supplied with the appliance. You should add approximately 1.5
kg of salt into the water softener.
o It is perfectly normal for a small amount of water to come out of
the water softener, whilst you are filling it with salt. This does
not mean that the water softener is filled with the correct
amount of salt.
o Refit and fully tighten the water softener cap.
o
The salt required warning light will go out shortly
after you have filled the water softener with salt.
When the salt indicator lights on the control panel,
then you should follow the filling with dishwasher
salt procedure again.
o IMPORTANT: You do not need to pour 1 litre of water into
the container when you subsequently fill the water
softener with salt.
13
Setting the water softener level
It is possible to regulate the amount of salt that the water softener will
release during a wash cycle. The water softener should be set to a
level that is appropriate for the hardness of your water (please refer to
the table below).

To alter the amount of salt that is released by the water softener, you
should:o
Open the door and switch on the appliance using the
ON/OFF button (5).
o Press and hold the program button (4) for about 5
seconds to enter the water softener setting mode. The
salt and rinse aid indicators may light in the setting
mode.
o Repeatedly press the program button (4) to select the
appropriate option according to the hardness of your water. The
LED display will show your choice as shown in the above table.
o When you have made your selection, press the ON/OFF button
(5) to exit the setting mode.
o IMPORTANT: If you are using 3 in 1 dishwasher tablets and live
in a medium or hard water area, then you should still fill the
water softener with salt. The water softener level should be set
accordingly.
14
Filling with rinse aid
The rinse aid is released during the final rinse and it helps
to prevent water from forming droplets on your dishes.
These droplets will lead to spots and streaks being left on
items after the wash program has completed.
o Your dishwasher is designed to utilise liquid rinse aid.
o The rinse aid dispenser is located inside the drop down door,
next to the detergent dispenser.
o To access the rinse aid dispenser, you should turn the cap
anticlockwise and it will pop out of the hole. Then slowly pour in
liquid rinse aid, the rinse aid dispenser will hold approximately
110 ml of rinse aid.
o Be careful not to overfill the dispenser, as this could cause
oversudsing when a wash program is selected. Wipe away any
rinse aid excess or spillages with a damp cloth.
o Replace the cap and turn it clockwise until it locks into position.
o
You should refill the rinse aid dispenser when the
rinse aid indicator lights on the control panel.
o IMPORTANT: If you are using 3 in 1 dishwasher tablets then
you should still fill the rinse aid dispenser.
15
Setting the rinse aid level
The amount of rinse aid that the dishwasher requires also depends on
the hardness of your water. You should experiment with the rinse aid
setting, until you find a level that gives the best results.
o On the first wash cycle, we would recommend that the rinse aid
level is set to number 4.
o If you get water spots and poor drying performance, then you
should turn the arrow anticlockwise and increase the setting to
the next number.
o You should continue to adjust the rinse aid level upwards until
you get no water spots.
o If you get cloudiness or streaking on your dishes, the rinse aid
level is set too high and it is causing foaming during the wash
cycle. Turn the arrow clockwise and lower the setting to the next
number.
Filling with dishwasher detergent
o The detergent dispenser must be refilled at the start of each
wash cycle.
o Your dishwasher uses less detergent and rinse aid than a
conventional dishwasher.
o In general, only one tablespoon of detergent is needed for a
normal wash load. More heavily soiled items may need more
detergent.
o Always add the detergent just before starting the wash program,
otherwise the detergent could get damp and not dissolve
properly.
16
o Open the lid that closes over the detergent dispenser by pushing
the release button. The lid will spring open. Place the detergent
inside of the dispenser.
o The section marked A in the diagram is for the main wash cycle
detergent. Only one detergent tablet should be placed in the
dispenser at any one time. If you are using detergent powder or
liquid, you should follow the detergent manufacturer’s
recommendations.
o The section marked B in the diagram can have separate
detergent placed in it for any wash cycle that has a pre-wash
element to it, however this is optional. This must be a liquid or
powder detergent, not another detergent tablet.
o Shut the detergent dispenser lid and press it until it locks into
place.
o At the beginning of a wash cycle the clip will open and the
tablet/powder/liquid will enter the dishwasher.
17
Concentrated detergent
o The use of the NORMAL program with concentrated detergents
reduces pollution and is good for your dishes.
o This wash program is specifically suited to the dirt-dissolving
properties of the enzymes of concentrated detergent. For this
reason, the NORMAL program, in which concentrated detergent
is used, can achieve the same results achieved in the INTENSIVE
program.
Detergent tablets
o Different brands of detergent tablets dissolve at different speeds.
For this reason, some detergent tablets cannot dissolve and
develop their full cleaning power during short programs.
o It is recommended that you use longer programs when using
detergent tablets to ensure the complete removal of detergent
residues.
Loading the upper basket
The upper basket is most suited to washing delicate and light
dishware, such as glasses, coffee & tea cups, saucers, plates, bowls
and shallow pans (that are not heavily soiled).

4.
Cups
Saucers
Glasses
Large serving bowl
o You should position the dishes and cookware in such a way that
they are not moved by the spray of water during the wash cycle.
18
o Use the diagram above as a guide to the most appropriate way
to load the upper basket.
IMPORTANT: Care should be taken when placing long stemmed
glassware, such as champagne glasses in the upper basket. If they are
not positioned correctly, then there is a risk that they may topple over
when the upper basket is pushed in or pulled out.
Adjusting the upper basket
Your dishwasher has an adjustable upper basket which you can alter to
the most suitable position for the items you are going to wash in the
upper and lower baskets.
o The height of the upper basket can be adjusted by placing the
wheels on a different height of the rails. Long items such as
cutlery, salad servers and knives should be placed on the shelf
so they do not obstruct the rotation of the spray arms.
o IMPORTANT: The upper basket must be empty when you are
removing it from the guide supports.
19
Folding back the cup shelves
For easier stacking of pots and pans the cup shelf spikes can be folded
down as shown in the diagram below.
IMPORTANT: Care should be taken to make sure that the spray
arms can move freely when items have been loaded into the
baskets.
Loading the lower basket
The lower basket is most suited to washing larger and more heavily
soiled items, such as saucepans, saucepan lids and serving dishes. You
can also load bowls and a variety of plates into the lower basket.
o Saucepans and serving bowls must always be placed with their
bases upwards.
o Deep saucepans should be slanted, to allow water to run off.

Loading dishes and cutlery
Household cloths, sponges or any other object that
may absorb water SHOULD NOT be washed in a
dishwasher.
o Remove leftovers and soften the remnants of burnt food in pans,
prior to loading dishes in the appliance.
o Once the dishwasher has been loaded, check that the spray arms
can move freely. If the spray arm comes into contact with any
item, then you should rearrange the wash load.
o Cups, glasses, pans etc should all be loaded with their bases
upwards, so that water does not collect inside of them.
o Cutlery and dishes should not cover each other; otherwise you
may get poor wash results.
22
o Do not allow glasses to touch inside the dishwasher, otherwise
damage may occur.
o Small objects can be placed inside of the cutlery basket.
The following items are NOT suitable for washing
inside a dishwasher:-
o Cutlery with a handle of mother-of-pearl, wood, horn or china.
o Plastic items that are not resistant to heat.
o Cutlery that consists of glued parts that are not resistant to heat.
o Cutlery items or crockery that are bonded.
o Copper or pewter items.
o Lead crystal glass.
o Wooden platters.
o Synthetic fibre items.
The following items are not always suitable for
washing inside a dishwasher:-
o Stoneware should only be washed if the manufacturer of the
item has marked it as dishwasher safe.
o Plastic items (such as lunchboxes) should only be washed if the
manufacturer has marked it as dishwasher safe.
o Glazed crockery may fade with repeated washing inside of a
dishwasher.
o Items made of silverware or aluminium can discolour when
washed inside a dishwasher.
o Any food residue should be removed from silver
immediately, as this can also result in discolouration.
items
o Certain types of glass may become dull or cloudy after a large
number of washes.

Saving energy using your dishwasher
Loading dishes
o Refer to the relevant section of this manual for instructions on
placing items in the dishwasher for the most efficient cleaning.
o Only run the dishwasher when it is full for optimum energy and
water usage. Or use the half load option for smaller loads.
o Check the program table to select the most efficient program
according to the size and type of the load.
o The ECONOMY program washes your items at a lower
temperature and uses less water during the cycle. That is better
for the environment and helps to cut energy costs as well as
your water bill if you’re on a water meter.
Usage
o Clean the filters regularly both to keep the dishwasher clean and
to maintain its efficiency.
o Always remember to switch the appliance off standby when you
have finished using it. £1 billion worth of energy is wasted in the
UK every year by people leaving appliances on standby.
o You do not need to rinse dishes off before loading. If you prefer
to pre-rinse, use cold water on your dishes before loading them
but do not waste water by letting it run continuously.
o Use the shorter and lower temperature cycles for everything but
the dirtiest dishes. Shorter cycles use less energy and work just
28
as well. Modern detergents also work just as well at lower
temperatures.
Cleaning and maintenance
IMPORTANT: The appliance should be disconnected
from your mains supply before commencing any
cleaning process.
The filter system
Your appliance is fitted with three levels of filtering; these are located
in the base of the dishwasher for ease of access.
1)
Main filter
2)
Coarse filter
3)
Fine filter
Main filter-
Food and soil particles are trapped by this filter and
pulverised by a special jet on the lower spray arm.
This debris is then washed down the drain.
Coarse filter-
Larger items such as pieces of bone or glass, which
could clog the drain, are trapped in this filter.
Fine filter-
This filter holds soil and food residue in the sump
area and prevents it from being redeposited on the
dishes during a wash cycle.
IMPORTANT: Whilst the filtering system is efficient, your
dishwasher is not a waste disposal unit. All items being
washed inside of the dishwasher should have food scraps
removed from them before being loaded into the appliance.
29
Cleaning the filters
For best performance and results, the entire filter assembly should be
thoroughly cleaned regularly (ideally after each wash cycle).
1. Turn the coarse filter anti-clockwise and then lift it upwards.
Rinse out this section under a tap to remove any food debris that
remains in it.
2. Pull out the main filter and rinse this under the tap to remove
any food debris that is trapped in it.
3. Pull out the fine filter and rinse this under the tap to remove any
food debris that is trapped in it.
4. Place the fine filter back in its original position.
5. Place the main and coarse filter back into their original positions
in the base of the dishwasher. You must turn the coarse filter
clockwise to lock it back into position.
IMPORTANT: If a glass gets smashed inside of the appliance,
you must check there is no glass in the filter before the
machine is used again as this can cause a drainage failure.
IMPORTANT: THE DISHWASHER SHOULD NEVER BE
SET ON A WASH CYCLE WITHOUT THE FILTERS BEING
INSIDE OF THE APPLIANCE.
30
Cleaning the spray arms
The spray arms should be cleaned regularly, to prevent hard water
deposits from clogging the spray arm jets and bearings.
o To remove the upper spray arm, hold the nut and rotate the arm
clockwise to remove it.
o To remove the lower spray arm, gently pull it upwards.
o Wash the spray arms in warm, soapy water and use a soft brush
to clean the jets.
o Rinse the spray arms thoroughly and then reassemble the spray
arms back in their original positions.
Cleaning the control panel
IMPORTANT: Do not use any abrasive cleaner or household polish on
either the control panel or operating parts.
o Wipe over the control panel using a brand new damp cloth with
warm water.
31
Cleaning the door
o To clean the edge around the outside of the door, you should use
a soft, damp cloth only.
o To prevent water from penetrating the door lock or electrical
components, DO NOT use a spray cleaner of any kind.
o DO NOT use any abrasive cleaner or scouring pads on the inner
or outer surfaces, as they may cause damage to them.

at the factory to ensure that they are at the proper tension, so
that the door can open and close smoothly.
o After the furniture door has been fitted, you will need to adjust
the tension of the door spring.
o Using a suitable screwdriver, rotate the adjusting screw shown in
the image above to either tighten or slacken the steel cable.
o The doors’ spring tension is correct when:a) The door remains horizontal when in the fully opened
position.
b) You are able to shut the door easily, by raising the door using
your fingers.
o WARNING: If you do not adjust the tension of the door spring,
then it could cause damage to the appliance.
40
Connecting to the mains water supply
IMPORTANT: Do not connect the appliance to your mains
water supply using an old or an existing water inlet hose.
The inlet hose supplied with the dishwasher is the ONLY one
that should be used.
o The inlet hose will be located inside the cabinet of the dishwasher.
o Connect the water inlet hose to a threaded water tap that has a
3/4” thread and to the inlet hose connector on the appliance. Let
the water run to make sure the water is clear and free of impurities
to prevent blocking the inlet hose or damaging the appliance.
o Fully tighten the inlet hose to the water tap and the dishwasher.
o The water supply to the appliance can also be connected to the
house hot water line (centralised heating system) as long as the
temperature does not exceed 60°C. When connected to a hot water
supply, the program times will be shortened by about 15 minutes
and the wash efficiency will be slightly reduced.
Connecting to the water outlet
41
o Secure the drain hose, so that it cannot move whilst the
dishwasher is in use.
o Place the end of the drain hose on your drain pipe. Push it a
short way down into your drain pipe. The drain pipe must have a
minimum diameter of 40 mm.
o The top of the drain hose must be no higher than 1000 mm.
o IMPORTANT: Do not insert the drain hose too deeply into the
pipe, as this may cause siphoning.
o NEVER EXTEND THE DRAINAGE HOSE FROM ITS ORIGINAL
LENGTH.
Connecting to the power supply
o IMPORTANT: The electrical socket must still be accessible
once the appliance is installed.
o Consult the rating plate, located on the right hand side of the
drop down door BEFORE making the electrical connections.
Ensure that the voltage reaching the plug is the same as that on
the rating plate.
o DO NOT REMOVE THE RATING
INFORMATION ON IT IS IMPORTANT.
PLATE

o IMPORTANT: We do not recommend that this appliance is
connected to an extension lead.
42
Applying the condensation strip
o The condensation strip must be fitted to the underside of the
worktop to protect it against the ingress of moisture. The strip
will deflect steam that rises from your appliance, away from the
underneath of the worktop.
o The condensation strip will be located inside of your dishwasher.
o Ensure that the underneath of the worktop is clean before
sticking the strip to it.
o Separate the backing paper away from the strip.
o Stick the condensation strip to the underneath of the worktop.
o IMPORTANT: Failure to attach the condensation strip could
result in damage to your worktop.
Positioning the dishwasher
43
o Carefully slide the dishwasher back into position, underneath the
worktop.
Levelling the appliance
o IMPORTANT: Your dishwasher must be level for it to operate
properly.
o Make sure that the dishwasher is supported whilst it
is being levelled, otherwise it may tip over.
o Rotate the adjustable feet to level the appliance accordingly.
o Use a spirit level to check that the appliance is level.
o Check that the appliance is level from side to side.
o Check that the appliance is level from front to back.
44
Securing the dishwasher
The dishwasher must be secured to the worktop, this can be done in
one of two ways:o Standard worktop- Secure the dishwasher to the
underside of the worktop by using two wood screws (A).
o You should screw through the holes in the brackets at the
top of the dishwasher cabinet.
o These screws should be fully tightened.
o Marble/granite worktop- The material of the worktop
will mean that it is impossible to put a screw through the
underneath of the worktop.
o On either side of the front edge of the dishwasher cabinet,
there is a rubber stopper. You should remove the rubber
stoppers, to reveal a pre-drilled hole on either side of the
dishwasher.
o Secure the dishwasher to the cupboard either side of it, by
screwing a wood screw through the pre-drilled holes into
the cupboards. These screws should be fully tightened (B).
o The rubber stoppers should then be refitted into their
original position.
