Before doing your first wash:
Read through the directions for use
Read through the directions for use before
starting to use your machine, especially the
Safety, Child Safety, and Basic Course sections.
Take care with certain materials
Read the Fragile Dishes section before
washing china with unglazed decoration
or other household goods made of plastic,
wood, or crystal requiring careful treatment.
Check the door fitting
Check that the door of the dishwasher fits
properly: open the door a little and let it go.
Does it stay exactly where you released it? If
not, you should check the installation instructions or consult the installer.
Check the water’s hardness
Call your local water utility company to
check the water hardness in your area. This
is important when dispensing dishwasher
detergent and rinse aid.

Important safety instructions
This manual does not cover all possible
conditions and situations that may occur.
Common sense and caution should always
be used when installing, operating, and
maintaining any appliance.
•Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.
•Dishwashers must be electrically grounded. Read the Installation Instructions for
details.
•Use the dishwasher only for its intended
purpose.
•Do not run the dishwasher while you are
out of the home.
•Use only automatic dishwasher detergents
and rinse agents.
•To reduce the risk of injury, keep detergents and rinse aids out of the reach of
children.
•Do not load sharp items near the door; you
could damage the door seal.
•Place sharp knives in the cutlery basket
with the sharp ends down to avoid the risk
of cut-type injuries.
•Do not wash plastic items unless they are
marked “dishwasher safe” or the equivalent. For items not marked, check the
manufacturer’s recommendations. Items
not dishwasher safe could become deformed or melt and create a potential fire
hazard.
•Do not touch the heating element during or
imediately after use.
•Do not operate the dishwasher unless all
enclosure panels are properly in place
(i.e., guard plate, access panel, toe kick,
etc.)
•Do not tamper with controls by removing or
changing.
•Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the dishwasher door or baskets.
To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow
children to play in or on a dishwasher.
•Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas
may be produced in a hot water system
that has not been used for two weeks or
more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE.
If the hot water system has not been used
for two weeks, before using the dishwasher
turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This
will release any accumulated hydrogen
gas. As the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.
•When removing an old dishwasher from
service or discarding it, remove the door to
the washing compartment.
•Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline, or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
•Disconnect electrical power to dishwasher
before servicing.
•Repairs should be done by a qualified
technician.

Child safety!
Child safety tips
Dishwasher detergents and rinse aids are
corrosive, so always keep them out of reach
of children.
•Should a child swallow dishwasher detergent or rinse aid, give plenty to drink immediately, i.e., one or two glasses of milk or
water. Do not try to induce vomiting. Seek
medical advice immediately: Call the National Capital Poison Center at 1-800-222-1222
•Always close the door and start the dishwasher as soon as you put in the detergent.
•Always keep small children away from
the machine when it is open. There may
be some detergent residue left inside the
machine.
•If dishwasher detergent gets in someone’s
eyes, rinse them with plenty of water for at
least 15 minutes.
•Do not allow children to use or play in or
on the dishwasher.
•Load all long and sharp items in the knife/
utensil basket. If this is not possible, load
sharp objects with the pointed end facing
the back of the dishwasher. Sharp items
loaded in the �������������������������
cutlery������������������
basket should be
loaded with pointed ends down.
• Engage the child safety lock.

Basic Course
Below are step-by-step instructions to help you
achieve the best possible dishwashing results.
Load the baskets correctly!
Thanks to Self Cleaning System, you
do not need to rinse the dishes under running water. Simply remove large food particles and debris. Convenient and environmentally-friendly!
Place glasses, cups, bowls, side plates, and
saucers in the upper basket. Wine glasses
should be hung from or leaned against the
wine glass shelf and knives placed in the knife
stand if present.
Note!
Ensure that all soiled surfaces face inwards
or downwards!
Place dinner plates, side plates, serving
dishes, saucepans, and cutlery (in the cutlery basket) in the lower basket. The removable plate insert, which comes with certain
models, can be easily removed to provide
room for large plates, saucepans, and pots, or
placed in three alternative positions.
Stand the cutlery with handles downward
and as spread out as possible. Ensure that
spoons are not resting inside each other.
Do not put cutlery made of different materials - such as silver and stainless steel - in
the same compartment (risk of stains).
The cutlery basket has a folding flap in the
middle for small items or narrow shafts,
such as electric whisks.
Place long cutlery and carving knives in the
special knife box (if present) or in the upper
basket.
Check that the spray arms are able to
move freely. See the section entitled Fragile
Dishes if you want to wash objects that may
be fragile.
Dishwashing detergent
We recommend that you use
only unscented, granular automatic dishwashing detergent. Using the wrong detergent could cause flooding and/or damage
your dishwasher. Do not use detergent that
has been wet and is clumped. Also, check
the expiration date on the container.
The amount of detergent needed can vary
due to differences in water hardness. 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. Refer to
the chart below for the recommended detergent amounts based on water hardness.
Remember, you should adjust the amount
of detergent you use by small amounts
until you find the correct amount.
Twelve grains and higher is extremely
hard water and detergent alone may not
be enough. You may need to use a water
softener to maximize the performance of
your dishwasher. Also, in areas with hard
water (9+) you may need to wash at lower
temperatures to prevent hard water deposits from forming in tank and wash system.
In hard water areas, both the dishes and
the machine can develop a white or gray
Customer Care Center

film after a while. This can be removed by
replacing the prewash detergent with two
tablespoons of citric acid. If the water is very
hard, use a rinse aid that contains citric acid.
Different brands of dishwasher detergent
have different amounts of phosphorous for
softening water. If you have hard water and
use a detergent with less than 8.7% phosphorous content, you may need to use more
detergent or use a detergent with more than
8.7% phosphorous content.
NOTE:
We recommend that you do not add prewash detergent for the Quick wash programs.
NOTE:
If you use a dishwashing detergent with
a rinse aid additive, you should not fill the
rinse aid dispenser. This could cause a film
on your dishes.
Switch on the main switch
Select program
For select program see part
Programs.
Select option
If you wish to use additional options
continue to part Option. Otherwise you
can now start the machine, see point 6.
Dishwasher tablets
Halve the tablet if it is difficult to close the
dispenser cover. There is a risk that the
dishwasher detergent will not break down
properly to give the correct dosage if the
cover is tight and cannot be opened correctly.
3-in-1/ Multi-purpose detergent

vacations, for example.
Do you want to load more dishes?

stops automatically, put in the dishes, close
the door and the dishwasher will continue
from where it left off.

main switch
(or in the event of a power cut) before the

Fragile dishes
A number of household goods are not suitable for machine washing. This can be due
to a variety of reasons. Certain materials
cannot withstand intense heat; others can
be damaged by the dishwasher detergent.
Fragile decoration
China with decoration on top of the glaze
(the goods have a rough feel) should not be
machine washed.
Plastic
Certain types of plastic cannot withstand
the high temperature generated in machine
dishwashing.
Protect plastic goods
Select a program with a low temperature.
Crystal/ glass
Place the goods so that they do not knock
together during the wash. Use the lowest
possible wash temperature and the shortest
possible program. Do not heat dry! Antique
and very fragile items should not be machine washed.
Glass which is machine washed at high
temperatures can in time develop a grey film
which cannot be removed. Wash fine glass
at the lowest temperature and with a low
dosage of dishwasher detergent.
Silver
Silver and stainless steel items should not
come into contact with each other as the
silver can discolor.
Cutlery with glued handles
Certain types of adhesive cannot withstand
machine washing. In such cases the handles
can come loose.
Wood
Wooden items should only be machine
washed if they are labeled as dishwasher
safe.
Aluminum
Aluminum can be dulled by machine washing. However, good quality aluminum saucepans can be machine washed, although a
reduction in luster should be expected.

Rinse aid
Adding rinse aid
In some cases, drying can be made more efficient by using rinse aid.
Machines with indicator on the panel
When the rinse aid has run out and more is
needed, the rinse aid symbol on the panel
lights up*.
To fill with rinse aid:
1. Turn and lift up the cover of the rinse aid
compartment to the right of the dispenser.
This is where you top up and set the amount
of rinse aid to be dispensed in each wash.
2. Carefully pour in rinse aid up to the dosage setting knob.
Alter dosage if required. Do not forget to
close the cover.
*Note!
After filling there may be a short delay before the signal light goes out.
Select dosage
The dispenser is usually set at 1= soft water.
However, depending on the water hardness,
you may need to change the dosage.
Open the rinse aid cover. Here you will find
the dispenser’s adjustment dial. Settings 1-6:
the harder the water, the higher the dosage.
When the water hardness exceeds 3 grains,
you should use rinse aid with citric acid (acid
rinse aid).
Too much rinse aid can lead to the buildup of foam. If your water is particularly soft,
you can dilute the rinse aid (1 part rinse aid,
1 part water).
Too much rinse aid can cause streaks on
the dishes, while too little can result in water
stains.
Machines with refill indicator in
detegrent dispenser
There is a refill indicator in the middle of the
dispenser (see illustration). If the refill indicator is totally black, there is sufficient rinse
aid. However, if the indicator has a more
transparent appearance, you need to top up
with rinse aid (see above).

Step 2. Attaching cover or wooden door
Follow the separate instructions supplied
with the dishwasher to attach the chosen
cover or wooden door to the front of the machine.
Note:
Once you have fitted the cover or wooden
door to the dishwasher, the door springs may
need adjusting. Check that the door stays in
the position in which it is placed. If the door
drops down when you open it, the springs
need tightening. If the door shuts on its own,
the springs need loosening. See step 3 for
further instructions.

Step 6. Securing the dishwasher
1. Pull out the upper basket, and the centre
basket if present, and turn the basket stop
on the runner outwards.
2. Remove the upper basket, and the centre
basket if present, by pulling the basket(s)
out as far as possible. This is to make more
space available during installation.
3. Remove the lower basket. Otherwise it
easily rolls out if you need to adjust the
dishwasher during installation.
4. Screw the dishwasher to the worktop from
the inside or to the cabinets on either side.
If the worktop is a hard material, such as
marble, screw the dishwasher to the side
cabinets. Use the supplied plastic spacers
when screwing the dishwasher into place!
