INSTALLING THE MACHINE
Positioning the machine
When determining the place to put your machine on, take care to choose a place where you can
easily load and unload your dishes.
Do not put your machine in any location where there is the probability for the room temperature to fall
below 0°C.
Before positioning, take the machine out of its packaging by following the warnings located on the
package.
Position the machine close to a water tap or drain. You need to site your machine, taking into
consideration that its connections will not be altered once they are made.
Do not grip the machine by its door or panel in order to move it.
Take care to leave a certain clearance from all sides of the machine so that you can comfortably move
it back and forth during cleaning.
Make sure that the water inlet and outlet hoses do not get squeezed while positioning the machine.
Also, make sure that the machine does not stand on the electrical cable.
Adjust the machine’s adjustable feet so that it can stand level and balanced. Proper positioning of the
machine ensures problem-free opening and closing of its door.
If the door of you machine does not close properly, check if the machine is stable on the floor it
stands; if not, adjust the adjustable feet and ensure its stable position.
Water connection
Be sure that the indoor plumbing is suitable for installing a dishwasher. Also, we recommend that you
fit a filter at the entrance of your place or apartment so as to avoid any damage to your machine
because of any contamination (sand, clay, rust etc.) that might be occasionally carried in through the
mains water supply or the indoor plumbing, and to forestall such complaints as yellowing and
formation of deposits after washing.
7
Water inlet hose
Do not use the water inlet hose of your old machine, if any. Use the new water
inlet hose supplied with your machine instead. If you are going to connect a
new or long-unused water inlet hose to your machine, run water through it for a
while before making the connection. Connect the water inlet hose directly to
the water inlet tap. The pressure supplied by the tap should be at a minimum
of 0.03 Mpa and and at a maximum of 1 Mpa. If the water pressure is above 1
Mpa, a pressure-relief valve should be fitted inbetween.
After the connections are made, the tap should be turned on fully and checked
for water tightness.
For the safety of your machine, make sure to always turn off the water inlet tap
after each wash programme is finished.
NOTE: Aquastop water spout is used in some models. In case of
using Aquastop, a dangerous tension exists. Do not cut Aquastop
water spout. Do not let it get folded or twisted.
Water outlet hose
The water drain hose can be connected either directly to the water drain
hole or to the sink outlet spigot. Using a special bent pipe (if available),
the water can be drained directly into the sink via hooking the bent pipe
over the edge of the sink.
This connection should be at a minimum of 50 cm and and at a
maximum of 110 cm from the floor plane.
Warning: When a drain hose longer than 4 m is used, the dishes might
remain dirty. In that case, our company will not accept responsibility.
8
Electrical connection
The earthed plug of your machine should be connected to an earthed outlet supplied by suitable
voltage and current. If there is no earthing installation, have a competent electrician carry out an
earthing installation. In case of usage without earthing installed, our company will not be responsible
for any loss of usage that might occur.
The indoor fuse current value should be 10-16 A.
Your machine is set according to 220-240 V. If the mains voltage in your location is 110 V, connect a
transformer of 110/220 V and 3000 W inbetween. The machine should not be plugged in during
positioning.
At low voltage, Wash efficiency of your machine decreases.
Always use the coated plug supplied with your machine.
The machine’s electrical cable should be replaced by an authorised service or an authorised
electrician only. Failure to do so may lead to accidents.
For safety purposes, always make sure to disconnect the plug when a wash programme is finished.
In order not to cause an electric shock, do not unplug when your hands are wet.
When disconnecting your machine from the mains supply, always pull from the plug. Never pull the
cord itself.
Fitting the machine undercounter
If you wish to fit your machine undercounter, check whether you have sufficient space under your
countertop and whether the wiring-plumbing is suitable to do so.1 If you decide that the space under
the countertop is suitable for fitting your machine, remove the worktop as shown in the illustration. 2
t
Warning:The stand part which we will settle our machine under it by removing its worktop has
to be stable in such a way not to allow balance disorder.
9
To remove the worktop, remove the screws that hold the worktop which are located at the rear of the
machine; then push the front panel 1 cm from the front side towards the rear and lift it.
Adjust the machine feet according to the slope of the floor.3 Fit your machine by pushing it
undercounter without letting the hoses get crushed or bent.4
Warning: After removal of worktop, the machine should be placed in such a closed place of which
dimensions are shown at fig.
10
Prior to using the machine for the first time
•
Check whether the electricity and supply water specifications match the values indicated by the
installation instructions for the machine.
•
Remove all packaging materials inside the machine.
•
Set the water softener.
•
Add 2 kg salt into the salt compartment and fill with water up to a level at which it will almost
overflow.
•
Fill the rinse aid compartment.
PREPARING THE MACHINE FOR USE
The importance of water decalcification
For a good washing function, the dishwasher needs soft, i.e. less calcareous water. Otherwise, white
lime residues will remain on the dishes and the interior equipment. This will negatively affect your
machine’s washing, drying and shining performance. When water flows through the softener system,
the ions forming the hardness are removed from the water and the water reaches the softness
required to obtain the best washing result. Depending on the level of hardness of the inflowing water,
these ions that harden the water accumulate rapidly inside the softener system. Therefore, the
softener system has to be refreshed so that it operates with the same performance also during the
next wash. For this purpose, dishwasher salt is used.
Filling with salt
Use softener salt specifically produced
for use in dishwashers. To put softener
salt, first remove the lower basket and
then open the salt compartment cap by
turning it counter clockwise.1 2 At first
fill the compartment with 2kg salt and
water3
at
overflowing
level
If
available,using the funnel 4provided will
make filling easier. refit the cap and
close it.If the salt warning lamp on the
control panel becomes on fill the salt
SALT
compartment with salt again.
Fill the salt compartment with water
at first use only.
If you put a tablet into the salt
compartment,
do
not
fill
the
compartment
completely.
We
recommend that you use small-grained
or powder softener salt.
Do not put table salt into your machine.
Otherwise, the function of the softener
compartment may decrease over time. When you start your dishwasher, the salt compartment gets
filled with water. Therefore, put the softener salt prior to starting your machine.
This way, overflowing salt gets immediately cleaned up through the wash operation. If you are not
going to wash any dishes immediately after putting salt, then run a short washing program with an
empty machine in order to avoid any damage ( to prevent corrosion ) to your machine due to the salt
overflow while filling in the salt container.
11
In order to understand whether or not the amount of softener salt in your machine is sufficient, check
the transparent section on the salt compartment cap. There is sufficient salt if the transparent section
is green. Salt has to be added if the transparent section is not green
Testing strip
The washing effectiveness of your machine depends on the softness of the tap water. For this reason,
your machine is equipped with a system that reduces the hardness in mains water supply. The
washing effectiveness will increase when the system is correctly set. To find out the water hardness
level of water in your area, contact your local water board or determine water hardness level by using
the test strip(if available).
Open the
testing
strip.
Run
water
through
your tap
for 1
min.
Keep the
testing
strip in
water for 1
sec.
Shake the
testing strip
after taking it
out of water.
Wait for
1 min.
Make your machine’s water hardness
setting according to the result obtained
through the testing strip.
Adjusting salt consumption
Table of Water Hardness Level Settings
If the hardness of the water you use is above 90 dF (French hardness) or if you are using well
water; you are recommended to use filter and water refinement devices.
NOTE: Hardness level is adjusted to level 3 as a factory setting.
12
Adjust the water softener according to how hard your tap water is.
Move the programme selector knob to the 0 (Reset) position while your machine is not
in operation.1
After resetting your machine, press the Start/Pause button and keep it pressed
down.2
Meanwhile, energise the machine by pressing the Power On/Off button. 4
Keep Start/Pause keys press until program monitor lights are on and off. 2
After the lamps “Wash/End” have flashed 3 , release the Start/Pause button. 2
Your machine displays the latest entered water hardness setting.
You can adjust the levels by pressing the Start/Pause button 2 according to
Table of Water Hardness Level Settings.
After adjusting the water hardness level , press on/off button to save the settings
in memory. 4
13
Detergent usage
Use a detergent specifically designed for use in domestic dishwashers.
You can find powder,gel,and tablet detergents in the market that have been designed for
household dishwashers.
Detergent should be put into the compartment prior to starting the machine. Keep your
detergents in cool, dry places out of reach of your children.
Do not fill detergent into the detergent compartment more than required; otherwise it may cause
scratches on your glasses as well as lead to a poorly dissolved detergent.
Should you need more information concerning the detergent you will use, contact detergent
manufacturers directly.
Filling the detergent compartment
Push the latch to open the detergent container as shown in
the image. 1 Detergent pod has level lines inside. It is possible
to measure the right detergent amount using these lines.
Detergent pod can take totally 40 cm3 detergent.
Open the dishwasher
detergent and pour
into
the
larger
compartment b 25 cm3
if your dishes are
heavily soiled or 15
cm3 if they are less soiled.2 If your dishes have been
kept dirty for a very long time, if there are dried food
wastes on them, and if you have overly loaded the
dishwasher, pour a 5cm3 detergent into the pre-wash
compartment and start your machine.
You may have to add more detergent into your machine, depending on the degree of soil and
on the water hardness level in your area.
Combined detergents
Detergent manufacturers also manufacture combined detergents that are called 2 in 1 – 3 in
1- 5 in 1...
The 2 in1 detergents contain detergent+ salt or rinse aid . While using the 2 in 1 detergents,
it should be observed which functions the tablet consists of.
The other tablet detergents also have detergent+rinse aid +salt+various extra functions.
Generally, combined detergents produce sufficient results under certain usage conditions only.
Such detergents contain rinse aid and/or salt in preset amounts.
Points to consider when using this type of products:
• Always make sure to check the specifications of the product you will use or whether or not
it is a combined product.
• Check if the detergent used is appropriate for the hardness of mains water that machine is
appertaining to.
• Observe the instructions on packagings when using such products.
• If such detergents are in the form of tablets, never put them into the interior section or the
cutlery basket of the dishwasher. Always put the tablets into the detergent compartment in
the detergent dispenser.
14
•
•
•
They produce good results for certain types of usage only. If you are using this type of
detergents, you need to contact the manufacturers and find out about the suitable
conditions of use.
When the conditions of use of such products and the machine settings are appropriate,
they ensure savings in salt and/or rinse aid consumption.
Contact the detergent manufacturers if you are not obtaining good wash results (if your
dishes stay calcareous and wet) after having used 2 in 1 or 3 in 1 detergents. The scope of
warranty for your machine does not cover any complaints caused by the use of these types
of detergents.
Recommended usage: If you want to obtain better results while using combined detergents,
add salt and rinse aid into your machine and adjust the water hardness setting and the rinse aid
setting to the lowest position.
Solubility of the tablet detergents produced by different companies can vary depending
on the temperature and time. Therefore, it is not recommended to use such detergents
in short programs. It is more suitable to use powder detergents in such programs.
Warning: Should any problem, which you have not encountered before, arise with the use of
this type of detergents, contact the detergent manufacturers directly.
When you give up using combined detergents
•
Fill the salt and rinse aid compartments.
•
Adjust the water hardness setting to the highest position and run an empty-wash.
•
Adjust the water hardness level.
•
Make the suitable rinse aid setting.
Filling with rinse aid and making the setting.
Rinse aid is used to prevent the stay of white water drops, lime stains, white film stripshaped stains that may form on the dishes, as well as to increase
the drying performance. Contrary to the popular beliefs, it is used
not only for obtaining shinier dishes but also for obtaining sufficiently
dried dishes. For this reason, care
should be taken that there is adequate
amount of rinse aid in the rinse aid
compartment and only polishing
material produced for use at
dishwashers should be used.
To put rinse aid, remove the rinse aid
compartment cap by turning it.1 Fill the rinse aid compartment with
rinse aid until the rinse aid level indicator becomes dark;2 refit the
cap and close it by turning it in a way
that the nails will correspond to one
another. By checking the rinse aid level indicator on the detergent
dispenser, you can understand whether or not your machine needs
rinse aid. A dark indicator b means that there is rinse aid in the
compartment, while a light indicator a shows that you need to fill the
compartment with rinse aid.
The rinse aid level adjuster can be set to a position between 1 and
6. Factory setting for rinse aid is the position 4.
You need to increase the degree of the adjuster if water stains form on your dishes after
a wash, whereas you need to decrease the degree if a blue stain is left when wiped by
hand.3
15
Warning: Use only those rinse aid materials which are allowed for use in the machine. As rinse
aid residues left as a result of overflowing will create extremely high amounts of foam and thus
reduce the washing performance, remove the excess amount of rinse aid by wiping it with a rag.
LOADING YOUR DISHWASHER
If you properly place your dishes into the machine, you will be using it in the best way in terms
of energy consumption, washing and drying performance.
There are two separate baskets for you to load your dishes into your machine. You can load into
the lower basket such round and deep items as pots with long handles, pot lids, plates, salad
plates, cutlery sets.
The upper basket has been designed for tea plates, dessert plates, salad bowls, cups and
glasses. When placing long-stem glasses and goblets, lean them against the basket edge, rack
or glass supporter wire and not against other items. Do not lean long glasses against one
another or they cannot remain steady and may receive damage.
It is more appropriate to locate the thin narrow parts into the middle sections of baskets.
You can place spoons among the other cutlery sets in order to prevent them from sticking to
one another. You are recommended to use the cutlery grid in order to obtain the best result.
To avoid any possible injuries, always place such long-handle and sharp-pointed dishes as
serving fork, bread knife etc. with their sharp points facing down or horizontally on the baskets.
Warning: Place your dishes into your machine in a way that they will not prevent the upper and
lower spray arms from spinning.
Dish rack
There are dish racks on the upper basket of
your machine. a b You can use these dish
racks in open or closed position. When they are
in open position a you can place your cups on
them; and when in closed position b you can
place long glasses on the basket. Also, you can
use these racks by placing long forks, knives
and spoons on them laterally.
Lower Basket
Folding Racks
Folding racks consisting of two parts that are located on the lower basket of your machine are
designed in order to let you place big items easier such as pots, pans, etc. If requested, each
part can be folded separately, or all of them can be folded and larger spaces can be obtained.
You can use folding racks by raising them upwards, or by folding.
