To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
or injury when using your dishwasher,
follow these basic precautions:
Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.
DANGER or WARNING: Risk of child entrapment.
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned
dishwashers are still dangerous. . . even if they will “just sit in the garage a few days.”
Before you throw away your old dishwasher: Take off the door. Leave the shelves in place
so that children may not easily climb inside.
Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the dishwasher.
Do not allow children to play around dishwasher when opening or closing door due to the
possibility of small fingers being pinched in door.
Under certain conditions hydrogen may be produced in a water heater that has not been used
for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE.
If the hot water has not been use for two weeks or more, prevent the possibility of damage or
injury by turning on all hot water faucets and allow them to run for several minutes. Do this
before using any electrical appliance which is connected to the hot water system. This simple
procedure will allow any built-up hydrogen gas to escape. Since the gas is flammable, do not
smoke or use an open flame or appliance during this process.
Never clean dishwasher parts with flammable fluids. The fumes can create a fire hazard or
explosion.
Do not store or use gasoline or any other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or
any other dishwasher. The fumes can create a fire hazard or explosion.
This dishwasher must be properly grounded for your safety. Do not under any circumstances
cut or remove the third (ground) wire from the power cord. Any questions concerning power
and/or grounding should be directed toward a certified electrician or an authorized Avanti
Products service center.
Do not tamper with controls.
Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish rack of the dishwasher.
Do not touch the heating element during or immediately after use.
Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked dishwasher safe or the equivalent. For
plastic items not so marked, check the manufacturer recommendations.
Non-Dishwasher Items: Do not wash items such as electronic air cleaner filters, furnace filters
and paint brushes in your dishwasher. Damage to dishwasher and discoloration or staining of
dishwasher may result.
When using your dishwasher, you should prevent plastic items form contacting with heating
element.
Use only detergent and rinse additives designed for an automatic dishwasher. Using detergent
that is not specifically designed for dishwashers will cause the dishwasher to fill with suds.
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.
The door should not be left in the open position since this could present a tripping hazard.
During installation, the power supply must not be excessively bent or flattened.
Do not operate your dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are properly in place. Open the
door very carefully if the dishwasher is operating, there is a risk of water squirting out.
Do not place any heavy objects or stand on the door when it is open. The appliance could tip
forward.
When loading items to be washed:
1) Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to damage the door seal.
2) Load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce the risk of cut-type injuries.
Use this dishwasher only for its intended purpose as described in this Instruction Manual.
Please dispose of packing materials properly.

? Overflow Protection
Our Avanti dishwasher has an overfill protection device which could automatically shut off the inlet valve
and start the drain pump if the water overflow. If this occurs, turn off the main water supply before calling
a servicer. If there is water in the base pan because of an overfill or small leak, the water should be
removed before restarting the dishwasher.
?
Detergent Dispenser
The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each wash cycle according to the instructions provided
in the “Wash Cycles”. Our dishwashers use less detergent and rinse aid than conventional
dishwashers. Generally, only one tablespoon of detergent is needed for a normal wash load. Also, more
heavily soiled items need more detergent. Always add the detergent just before starting dishwasher,
otherwise it could get damp and will not dissolve properly.

Amount of Detergent to Use
The amount of detergent to use depends on whether your water is hard or soft. To determine the water
hardness in your area, contact your local water utility or area water softening company. The harder the
water, the more detergent you may need. Remember, you should adjust the amount of detergent you
use little by little until you find the correct amount.
Notes: Even if the water isn’t too hard, you may also prevent the f ormation of deposits by adding
detergent.
Removing Hard Water Spots From Dishes
To remove hard water spots, try the following:
?
Run dishes through a normal wash program.
?
Remove all metal dishware, such as cutlery, pans, etc., from the dishwasher.
?
Do not a dd detergent.
?
Pour two cups of vinegar into a bowl and set the bowl face up on the lower rack of the dishwasher.
?
Run the dishes through a normal wash program.
If this doesn’t work, try the same process with ¼ cup of citric acid crystals instead of vinegar .
Proper Use Of Detergent
Use only detergent specifically made for use in dishwasher. Keep your detergent fresh and dry. Don’t
put powder detergent into the dispenser until you’re ready to wash dishes.
?
Rinse Aid Dispenser
The rinse aid is released during the final rinse to prevent water from forming droplets on your dishes that
can leave spots and streaks. It also improves drying by allowing water to “sheet” off the dishes.
Our dishwashers are designed to use liquid rinse aid. The rinse aid
Dispenser is located inside the door next to the detergent dispenser.
To fill the dispenser, following the following steps to open the cap
and pour the rinse aid into the dispenser until the level indicator turns
completely black. The dispenser holds about 100 ml of liquid rinse aid.
1. To open the dispenser, turn the cap to the “open” (left) arrow
10
2.
3.
and lift it out.
Pour the rinse aid into the dispenser, being careful not to overflow.
Replace the cap by inserting it aligned with “open” arrow and turning it to the “close” (right)
arrow.
Be careful not to overfill the dispenser, because this could cause over sudsing. Wipe away any spills
with a damp cloth. Don’t forget to replace the cap before you close the dishwasher door. If you have soft
water, you may not need rinse aid because it may cause a white film to develop on your dishes.
Adjusting Rinse Aid Dispenser
A measured amount of rinse aid is released during the final rinse. As with detergent,
the amount of rinse aid needed for your dishes depends on the hardness of the water
in your area. Too much rinse aid can result in lather of foaming and cause cloudiness
or streaks on your dishes. If the water in you area is very soft, you may not need rinse
aid. If you do, you can dilute the rinse aid with an equal amount of water.
The rinse aid dispenser has six settings. Always start with the dispenser set on “1”. If there are rings of
calcium (hard water) spots on dishes and drying problems, increase the amount of rinse aid dispensed
by removing the dispenser lid and rotating the dial to “2”. IF the dishes still are not drying properly or are
spotted, adjust the dial to the next higher number until your dishes are spot-free. We suggest you to set
on”4”.
When To Refill The Rinse Aid Dispenser
When dispenser needs to be refilled the rinse aid warning indicator
will be ON. If there is no rinse aid warning indicator on the control
panel, you can judge the amount of rinse aid by the following means.
The black dot on the rinse aid dispenser indicates the amount of rinse
aid in th e dispenser. As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of the black
dot decreases. You should never let the rinse aid get below ¼ full.
?
Loading The Dishwasher Racks
For best performance of the dishwasher, follow these loading guidelines.
How to Use the Upper Rack
The upper rack is designed to hold more delicate and lighter dishware such as glasses, coffee and tea
cup and saucers, as well as plates, small bowls and shallow pans (as long as they are not too dirty).
Position the dishes and cookware so that th ey do not get moved by the spray of water.
The upper rack can be adjusted for height by putting wheels of different height into the rails.

How To Use The Lower Rack
We recommend that you place large items which are most difficult to clean into the lower rack: pots,
pans, lids, serving dishes and bowls, as shown in the figure.
11
It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the side of the racks in order to avoid blocking the
rotation of the top spray arm.
? Pots, serving bowls, etc, must always be placed top down.
? Deep pots should be slanted to allow water to flow out.
? The bottom rack feature folds down tine rows so that larger or more pots and pans can be loaded.

Starting A Wash Cycle
Make sure that the dishwasher is energized.
Make sure the water supply is turned on to full pressure.
Load the dishwasher.
Pour in the detergent.
Slowly turn the wash cycles knob to the desired position in the clockwise direction. Don’ t turn it
past that position, or you could accidentally miss a cycle.
Press the ON/OFF button, and the POWER indicator will turn on. At this point, the wash cycle will
begin. There is a time delay between start-up and water fill so you will not hear any wash action
right away.
?
Canceling Or Modifying A Wash Cycle Setting
Premise: A cycle that is underway can only be modified if it has only been running for a short time.
Otherwise, the detergent may have already been release, and the appliance may have already drained
the wash water. If this is the case, the detergent dispenser must be refilled.
Press the ON/OFF button, and the POWER indicator will turn off. Rotate the knob in the clockwise
direction to the desired cycle setting. Then, turn the dishwasher back on by pressing the ON/OFF
button.
? At The End Of The Wash Cycle
When the knob stops turning and is aligned with a STOP mark, the cycle has
finished. Turn off the appliance using the ON/OFF button, shut off the water supply
and open the door of the dishwasher. Wait a few minutes before unloading the
dishwasher to avoid handling the dishes and utensils while they are still hot and
more susceptible to breakage. They will also dry better.
12
? Forgot To Add A Dish?
A forgotten dish can be added any time before the detergent cup opens.
Pull the door handle.
Do not open the door until the water spray action stops. Steam may rise out of the dishwasher.
Add forgotten dishes.
Push the door to close it. When the door is closed right a click will be heard.
?
Filtering System
For your convenience, we have placed the drain pump and filtering system within easy reach inside the
tub. There are three components of the filtering system: the main filter, the coarse filter and the fine
filter.
1. Main Filter
Food and soil particles trapped by this filter are pulverized by a special jet on the lower spray arm and
washed down the drain.
2. Coarse Filter
Larger items, such as pieces of bone or glass, that could clog the drain are
trapped in the coarse filter. To remove an item caught in this filer, gently
squeeze the tabs on top of this filter and lift out.
3. Fine Filter
This filter holds soil and food residue in the sump area and prevents it from
being redeposited on the dishes during a cycle.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
To clean the control panel, use a lightly dampened cloth then dry thoroughly. To clean the exterior, use
a good appliance polish wax.
Never use sharp objects, scouring pads or harsh cleaners on any part of the dishwasher.
? Protect Against Freezing
If you dishwasher is left in an unheated place during the winter, ask a service technician to:
1. Cut off electrical power to the dishwasher. Remove fuses or tip circuit breaker.
2. Turn off the water supply and disconnect the water inlet line from the water valve.
3. Drain water from the inlet line and water valve. (Use a pan to catch the water.)
4. Reconnect the water inlet line to the water valve.
5. Remove the plastic sump cover in the bottom of thetub and use a sponge to soak up water in rubber
boot.
? Cleaning The Spray Arms
Because hard water chemicals will clog the spray arm jets and bearings, it is necessary to clean the
spray arms regularly. To remove the spray arm, screw off the nut to take out the washer on top of the
spray arm and remove the arm. Wash the arms in soapy and warm water and use a soft brush to clean
the jets. Replace them after rinsing them thoroughly.
? Cleaning The Filters
For best performance and results, the filter assembly must be cleaned.
The filter efficiently removes food particles form the wash water, allowing water
to be recirculated during the cycle. For this reason, it is a good idea to remove
the larger food particles trapped in the filter after each wash cycle by rinsing the
main filter and cup under running water. To remove the filter assembly, pull on
13
the cup handle in the upward direction. The entire filter assembly should be cleaned at least once a
month.
To clean the main filter and the fine filter, use a cleaning brush. Then, reassemble the filter parts as
shown in the illustration and reinsert the entire assembly in the dishwasher, positioning it in place and
pressing downward.
The dishwasher must never be used without the filters. Improper replacement of the filter may reduce
the performance level of the appliance and damage dishes and utensils.
WARNIING : Never run the dishwasher without the filters in place.
? Cleaning The Door
To clean the edge around the door, you should use only a soft warm, damp
rag. To prevent penetration of water into the door lock and electrical
components, do not use a spray cleaner of any kind.
Also, never use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads on the outer surfaces
because they will scratch the finish. Some papers towels can also scratch
or leave marks on the surface.
WARNING: Never use a spray cleaner to clean the door panel because it could damage the door lock
and electrical components. It is not allowed to use the abrasive agent or some paper towel because of
the risk of scratching or leaving spots on the stainless steel surface.
? Cleaning The Drain Pump
Something will occasionally move into the filters and the drain pump. If this
occurs, th e drain pumps employed in our dishwasher are designed to
automatically reverse, ejecting the item back into the sump area or down the
drain. IF you have to remove an obstacle from the drain pump, before you
remove the filters, you should turn off the power, then remove the small black
insert form the sump area. (You might want to remove any standing water
first.) Scoop out the item that is probably in the sump area and causes the
obstruction. Remember to replace the black insert before you put the filters
back in.
? How To Keep You Dishwasher In Shape
? After every wash
After every wash, turn off the water supply to the appliance and leave the door slightly ajar so that
moisture and odors are not trapped inside.
? No solvents or abrasive cleaning products
To clea n the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher, do not use solvents or abrasive cleaning
products. Rather, use only a cloth and warm soapy water. To remove spots or stains from the surface of
the interior, use a cloth dampened with water and a little white vinegar, or a cleaning product made
specifically for dishwashers.
? When you go on Holiday
When you go on holiday, it is recommended that you run a wash cycle with the dishwasher empty and
them de -energize the dishwasher, turn off the water supply and leave the door slightly ajar. This will
help the seals last longer and prevent odors from forming within the dishwasher.
? Seals
One of the factors that cause odors to form in the dishwasher is food that remains trapped in the seals.
Periodic cleaning with a damp sponge will prevent this from occurring.

film from glassware:
1. Remove all metal utensils from the
dishwasher.

30 minutes. Dishwasher will now be in
the main wash.
5. Open the door and pour 2 cups (500ml)
of white vinegar into the bottom of the

INSTRUCCIONES DE ALAMBRADO
Tipos de Cable Alambrado
Este equipo debe estar alambrado a tierra. En el evento en que ocurra alguna rotura o mal funcionamiento, el
alambrado a tierra reducirá el riesgo de descarga eléctrica proveyendo un camino de menor resistencia para la
corriente eléctrica. Este equipo viene con un cable con enchufe a tierra. El cable debe estar conectado a un
enchufe apropiado, el cual deberá cumplir todas las ordenanzas y códigos locales.
ADVERTENCIA
La conexión inapropiada del cable a tierra incrementará el riesgo de descargas eléctricas. Verifique con un
electricista o personal de servicio calificados la conexión apropiada del equipo. Si nec esita realizar alguna
modificación en el enchufe a tierra, le recomendamos contratar los servicios de un electricista.

BOTONES DE AJUSTE DE CICLO DE EL LAVADO
Botón de adición
Este botón (vea “Panel de Control”) es usado con el ciclo normal en el caso en que ollas y sartenes con comida
seca deban ser lavados.
Botón Rápido
Cuando usa este botón (vea “Panel de Control”) en el programa “Rápido” (Cristales-Vidrio) el ciclo de lavado
se realiza a una temperatura menor (50 ºC) y elimina el ciclo de secado.
Protección contra el sobre flujo de agua
Este lavaplatos cuenta con un sistema de protección contra el sobre flujo de agua, el mismo cierra la válvula
de entrada de agua y activa la bomba de drenaje cuando el nivel del agua sube demasiado. Si esto ocurre,
cierre la llave principal de entrada de agua antes de llamar al personal de servicio. Si hay agua en la bandeja
de la base debido al sobre flujo o existe algún tipo de goteo, el agua deberá retirarse antes de reiniciar el
funcionamiento del lavaplatos.
Dispensador de Detergente
El dispensador debe rellenarse antes de comenzar cada ciclo de lavado de acuerdo a las instrucciones
detalladas en la tabla de ciclo de lavado. Este lavaplatos usa menor cantidad de detergente y aditivos de
enjuague que los lavaplatos convencionales. Generalmente, sólo se necesitará una cucharada de detergente
para una carga en el programa de lavado normal. Los artículos más sucios necesitaran mayor cantidad de
detergente. Siempre añada el detergente justo antes de iniciar el lavaplatos, de otra manera podría
humedecerse y no disolverse apropiadamente.
Cantidad de detergente a usar
SI EL AGUA NO ES MUY DURA, USTED PODRA PREVENIR LA FORMACION DE DEPOSITOS
ANADIENDO DETERGENTE.
La cantidad de detergente que necesite variara dependiendo de la dureza del agua. Para determinar la dureza
del agua en su localidad, comuniquese con su compañía proveedora de agua. Mientras más dura sea el agua,
mayor será la cantidad de detergente a utilizar. Recuerde, usted debe encontrar la cantidad de detergente que
debe usar añadiendo pequeñas cantidades hasta encontrar la medida exacta.

Quitando manchas de agua dura de los platos
Para quitar las manchas producidas por el agua dura, siga estos consejos:
Ponga los platos en el programa de lavado normal.
Quite todo objeto metálico, como cubiertos, sartenes, etc.) del lavaplatos.
No añada detergente.
Eche dos tazas de vinagre en una ensaladera, colóquela en la rejilla inferior del lavaplatos. Inicie el programa
de lavado normal.
Si esto no funciona, realice el mismo proceso usando ¼ de taza de cristales de ácido cítrico en lugar del
vinagre.
Uso adecuado del detergente
Solamente use detergente para lavaplatos.
Conserve el detergente en un lugar fresco y seco.
No vierta el detergente en polvo hasta el momento mismo de lavar los platos.
ADVERTENCIA!
El detergente para lavaplatos es corrosivo. Tenga el cuidado de mantenerlo lejos del alcance de los niños.
DEPOSITO DE ADITIVOS DE ENJUAGUE
Para abrir el depósito, gire a la tapa hacia la flecha izquierda (“open”) y tire de ella.
Vierta el aditivo de enjuague en el depósito, tenga cuidado d e no sobrepasar el tope de llenado.
Coloque la tapa alineada con la flecha izquierda (“open”) y dándole vuelta hacia la flecha derecha para
cerrarla (“close”).
Los aditivos de enjuague se liberarán durante el enjuague final para prevenir que el agua forme gotas en sus
platos las que podrían dejar manchas y rayas. También mejoran el secado permitiendo que el agua se escurra
más fácilmente de los platos.
Este lavaplatos esta diseñado para usar aditivos de enjuague líquidos. El depósito está situado dentro de la
puerta, junto al depósito de detergente
Para llenar el depósito, abra la tapa y eche el aditivo de enjuague hasta que el indicador de nivel se torne
completamente negro. El depósito tiene capacidad para 100 ml
Debe tener cuidado de no llenar el depósito por encima del nivel permitido, esto podría causar excesos de
espuma. Limpie con un paño húmedo cualquier derrame o salpicadura. No se olvide de colocar la tapa en su
lugar antes de cerrar la puerta del lavaplatos.
Si su localidad tiene agua blanda, no deberá usar el aditivo de enjuague ya que éste podría dejar una película
blanca sobre sus platos.
Como usar la parrilla inferior
Le recomendamos que coloque los artículos grandes y los más difíciles de limpiar, en la parrilla inferior: ollas,
sartenes, tapas, platos de servicio y ensaladeras, como se muestra en la figura.
Es preferible que coloque los platos de servicio y las tapas en los lados de la parrilla para que no interrumpan
la rotación del brazo distribuidor.
Las ollas, ensaladeras, etc., se deben poner boca abajo.
Las ollas hondas deben estar colocadas de manera que permitan el flujo adecuado del agua.
23
La parrilla inferior se puede acomodar para que mas ollas u ollas más grandes y sartenes puedan ser
incluidas.

Limpiando los brazos distribuidores
Es necesario limpiar los brazos distribuidores regularmente, los químicos del agua dura pueden tupir el brazo
distribuidor y el eje. Para sacar el brazo distribuidor, desenrosque la tuerca para sacar el limpiador de la parte
superior del brazo distribuidor. Limpie los brazos con agua tibia y jabonosa, use una pequeña brocha para
limpiar los distribuidores. Reinstálelos después de haberlos secado.
Limpiando los filtros
Es n ecesario sacar y limpiar el filtro periódicamente removiendo las particulas de comida en el agua de lavado
permitiendo que recircule durante el ciclo.
Ensamble del filtro.
Para mejores resultados, limpie el filtro.
El filtro remueve partículas de comida del agua de lavado, permitiendo que recircule durante el ciclo. Por esta
razón, es una buena idea quitar las grandes partículas de comida atrapadas en el filtro después de cada ciclo
de lavado enjuagando el filtro semicircular y la taza.
Para sacar el sistema del filtro, hale la manija de la taza hacia arriba. El sistema entero del filtro deberá ser
limpiado al menos una vez al mes.
Para limpiar el filtro grueso y el fino use un cepillo limpiador, luego ensamble nuevamente las partes del filtro
como se muestra en las figuras de la izquierda y reinserte el ensamblaje completo en el lavaplatos, ubicándolo
en su sitio y presionando hacia abajo.
El lavaplatos no debe usarse sin el filtro. El reemplazo inapropiado del filtro reducirá los niveles de
funcionamiento del equipo así como también dañando platos y utensilios.
ADVERTENCIA
Nunca use el lavaplatos sin filtro.
Limpiando la puerta
Para limpiar el borde alrededor de la puerta use un paño húmedo, suave y tibio. Para prevenir el ingreso de
agua al seguro de la puerta y a componentes eléctricos, no use limpiadores en aerosol de ninguna clase.
Tampoco use limpiadores con abrasivos o paños desgrasadores ya que podrían arañar la superficie. Algunos
papeles toalla podrían también arañar o dejar marcas en la superficie .
24
ADVERTENCIA
Tampoco use agentes abrasivos o papel toalla áspero debido al riesgo de arañar el equipo o dejar manchas
en las superficies de acero inoxidable.
Limpiando la Bomba de Drenaje
Ocasionalmente algo caerá dentro del filtro y la bomba de drenaje. Si esto ocurre, la bomba de drenaje
empleada en este equipo, está diseñada para revertir el sistema de drenaje automáticamente, de manera que
devolverá el artículo en el desagüe. Si por algún motivo usted tuviera que retirar manualmente un artículo de la
bomba de drenaje, antes de quitar los filtros, usted deberá apagar y desconectar el equipo de la corriente
luego quitar el pequeño inserto negro del sumidero. En caso de haber residuos de agua, estos deberán ser
secados antes de proseguir. Saque el artículo que causa la obstrucción, este debe encontrarse en el
sumidero. Recuerde colocar el inserto negro antes de re-instalar los filtros.
MANTENIMIENTO
Después de cada lavado
Cierre la llave del ingreso de agua y deje la puerta ligeramente entreabierta, de esta manera la humedad y los
malos olores no quedarán atrapados en el interior.
No use productos de limpieza solventes o abrasivos
Para limpiar las superficies exteriores y las partes de goma no use productos de limpieza solventes o
abrasivos. En lugar de estos productos use un paño limpio y agua tibia jabonosa. Para quitar manchas u óxido
de la superficie interior del equipo use un paño humedecido con agua y un poco de vinagre o un producto de
limpieza diseñado específicamente para lavaplatos.
Cuando se vaya de vacaciones
Se recomienda que realice un ciclo de lavado con el lavaplatos vacío, desenchufe el equipo, cierre la llave de
entrada de agua y deje la puerta del lavaplatos ligeramente entreabierta. Esto alargará la vida de los sellos del
equipo y prevendrá la formación de malos olores en el interior del mismo.
Sellos
Uno de los factores que causa el mal olor en el lavaplatos es la comida que queda atrapada en los sellos.
Periódicamente límpielos con una esponja húmeda, lo cual prevendrá la formación de los mismos.
