Important safety instructions

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE

WARNING!

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 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.

• Read the grounding instructions in the installation instructions.

Child safety

TIP!

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 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.

Activate child lock (Kid Safe™)

You can activate the child lock (button lock) to prevent children

from starting the dishwasher (see the section Settings).

Winter storage/Transport

• Store the dishwasher where the temperature remains above freezing.

• Avoid long transport distances in very cold weather.

• Transport the dishwasher upright or laying on its back.

Overflow guard function

The overflow protection starts pumping out the machine and turns off the water supply if the water level in the dishwasher exceeds the normal level. If the overflow protection is triggered, turn off the water supply and call the Customer Care Center.

Care and maintenance instructions

When cleaning the edge around the door, use only a slightly damp cloth. Do not spray water around the edge! Moisture can make its way into the lock, which contains electrical components.

Packing material

Please sort waste materials in accordance with local guidelines.

Disposal

• When the machine has reached the end of its service life and is to be disposed of, it should immediately be made unusable.

Pull out the power cable and cut it as short as possible.

• The dishwasher is manufactured and labeled for recycling.

• Contact your municipality for information about where and how your dishwasher can be recycled correctly.

Before washing for the first time

Water supply

The machine can be connected to either a hot (max. 160 °F, 70

°C) or cold water supply. We recommend a cold water supply.

The water pressure should be 4.2-140 psi. See also the section

Economic dishwashing in the chapter Loading the dishwasher.

Program key

Some dishwashers include program keys in different languages.

Attach the program key in the appropriate language to the top of the door.

Refill rinse aid indicator

When the rinse aid needs topping up, the above symbol lights on the display.

NOTE!

After topping up, it may take a while before the symbol goes out.

Checking water hardness

Contact the local water utility to check the water hardness in your area. This is important to determine how much detergent and rinse aid to use.

Top up with rinse aid

Drying is faster if you use rinse aid.

1 Open the rinse aid compartment lid.

2 Carefully top up with rinse aid. Only add rinse aid to the level marked

max

.

3 Wipe up any spilled rinse aid around the compartment.

4 Close the lid firmly.

4

Selecting the rinse aid dosage

Rinse aid dispensing can be set from dose). (Factory settings: )

(Off) to (High

Increase the rinse aid dosage:

• If the dishes have water marks.

Reduce the rinse aid dosage:

• If the dishes have a sticky white/blue film.

• If the dishes are streaked.

• Heavy foaming. If you have very soft water, the rinse aid can be diluted 50:50 with water.

Setting the rinse aid dosage

The section Settings describes how to set the rinse aid dosage.

Customer Care Center 1-800-898-1879 www.askona.com

Loading the dishwasher

Economic dishwashing

Run programs only with a full load

Wait until the dishwasher is fully loaded before running a program, this way you save energy. Use the Rinse & Hold program to rinse the dishes if there are any unpleasant odors while you wait for the dishwasher to become fully loaded.

Run programs at a lower temperature

If the dishes are only lightly soiled, you can select a lower

temperature with certain programs. See also the section Selecting

Options in the chapter Using the dishwasher.

Select a program with Short dry

To save energy, use Short dry. The drying result will be better if, once the program is finished, you leave the door slightly open.

Do not rinse under running water

Simply scrape off large food particles before loading the dishwasher.

Choose a green detergent

Read the environmental declaration on the packaging!

Connect to cold water...

If you use oil or electricity to heat your home.

Connect to hot water (max. 160 °F (70 °C))...

If you use district heating, solar power, or geothermal power to heat your home. Choosing a hot water connection cuts program times and reduces the dishwasher's electricity consumption.

Fragile dishes

Some cookware is not dishwasher safe. This can be for several reasons. Some materials cannot withstand high temperatures, others can be damaged by dishwasher detergent.

Fragile decoration

Porcelain with decoration on top of the glazing (the items feel rough) should not be washed in a dishwasher.

Crystal/Glass

Position items so that they do not touch each other during the wash. Use the lowest possible wash temperature and the shortest possible program. Select Short dry. Antique and very fragile items should not be washed in a dishwasher.

Glass washed in a dishwasher at high temperatures can gradually develop a gray film that cannot be removed. Wash fragile glasses at a low temperature and with a small amount of detergent.

Silver

Silver and stainless steel items should not come into contact, as the silver can become discolored.

Cutlery with glued handles

Some types of glue are not dishwasher safe. In such cases, the handles may loosen.

Wood

Wooden items should only be washed in a dishwasher if marked dishwasher safe.

Aluminum

Aluminum can lose its shine if washed in a dishwasher. However, good quality aluminum pans can be washed in a dishwasher, even if some of the shine will be lost.

Plastic items

Avoid washing plastic items that cannot withstand high temperatures.

Add detergent

1 Prewash detergent compartment

2 Main wash detergent compartment

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 film after a while. If this happens, run the Normal wash program with high temperature and two tablespoons of citric acid or commercially available dishwasher cleaner in the detergent compartment (with no dishes in the machine).

NOTE!

We recommend that you do not add prewash detergent for the programs Quick wash or Super Quick wash.

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.

WARNING!

Children must be supervised – dishwasher detergent is corrosive!

NOTE!

Use only dishwasher detergent! Liquid hand-washing detergent must not be used as the foam that forms prevents the dishwasher from operating effectively.

Dishwasher tablets

Halve the tablet if it is difficult to close the dispenser lid. There is a risk that the detergent will not be released properly if the lid is tight and cannot open correctly.

NOTE!

Dishwasher tablets are not recommended for short programs

(less than 75 minutes). Use powder or liquid dishwasher detergent instead.

3-in-1/All-in-one detergent

Read through the directions for these products carefully. If anything is unclear, contact the detergent manufacturer.

Program selection

Press the Program selector one or more times until the desired program symbol appears on the display.

Sanitation wash

A program with the ability to help with most household germs and extra dirty dishware. This program will have a high final rinse temperature for a good drying result and germ treatment.

NOTE! Do not put in dishware that cannot stand high wash or rinse temperatures.

Normal wash

Use to wash normally soiled dishes, such as plates, serving dishes, cups, glasses, and so on.

Heavy wash

Program for very dirty dishes, such as pans, casserole dishes, and oven dishes. If these dishes do not completely fill the dishwasher, you can add plates and other dishes that can withstand a Heavy wash to fill out the load.

Quick wash

This program is used for glasses and porcelain that is lightly soiled, such as coffee cups.

Super Quick wash

Short program lasting about 15 minutes with acceptable results for very lightly soiled dishes.

Delicate wash

If the dishes are only lightly soiled, you can select Delicate wash.

This program is intended for glasses and porcelain that have just been used and as such do not require such a powerful program.

This program can be used for fragile dishes. Select Short dry if

you want to be especially cautious. See also the section Fragile dishes in the chapter Loading the dishwasher.

Eco wash

Use when you want to save energy. For normally soiled dishes.

Rinse & Dry

This program consists of a rinse with heating and drying. This is a suitable program if, for example, you plan to make jam and want to rinse and heat clean glass jars.

Rinse & Hold

Use to rinse dishes while you wait for the dishwasher to become fully loaded.

Selecting Options

To select an option, press one of the option buttons. The field under the button lights when the option is activated. The available options depend on the selected program. Once you have started the program, the options you selected are saved for the next time you use the same program.

High temperature

Activate this option for improved dishwashing results. The machine then uses a higher temperature for the main wash.

If you want to use the lower temperature, press again so that the field under the button turns off.

Customer Care Center 1-800-898-1879 www.askona.com

You can vary the temperature as shown below:

Sanitation wash: 150 °F (65 °C) / 160 °F (70 °C)

Normal wash:

Heavy wash:

Quick wash:

130 °F (55 °C) / 150 °F (65 °C)

140 °F (60 °C)/150 °F (65 °C)

85 °F (30 °C) / 140 °F (60 °C)

Super Quick wash: 85 °F (30 °C) / 140 °F (60 °C)

Delicate wash:

Eco wash:

105 °F (40 °C) / 120 °F (50 °C)

120 °F (50 °C) / 140 °F (60 °C)

Long dry

A higher temperature in the final rinse and a longer drying phase improves the drying result if you activate the Long dry option.

This causes a slight increase in energy consumption. This option can be used with all programs except Rinse & Dry and Rinse &

Hold.

If you want a program with Short dry, press again so that the field under the button turns off.

Start the dishwasher

Press and hold Start/Stop until the display shows (the door open symbol). This indicates that the dishwasher is ready to start.

Close the door properly, otherwise the dishwasher will not start.

The display flashes three times with the remaining time to indicate that the program has started.

NOTE!

If the machine does not start within 2 minutes of the last button press, the display returns to showing the last program run.

Time remaining

Once you have selected a program and options, the display indicates how long the program took the last time it was used.

Once you have started the dishwasher, the display indicates how much program time remains. The remaining time is updated after the water for the final rinse has been heated.

This may differ somewhat from time to time depending on the temperature of the water supply, the amount of dishes, the ambient temperature, and other factors.

The time counts down while the program is running and the remainder of the program is displayed. The remaining time is displayed, e.g., 1:15, meaning that 1 minute 15 seconds of the program remains.

NOTE!

During the first run of each program, the remaining time displayed can be slightly misleading, as the dishwasher is estimating the time. When you run the program a second time, the dishwasher will calculate the remaining time based on the previous duration of the program.

Stopping or changing a program

If you want to change programs after starting the dishwasher, open the door then press and hold Start/Stop for three seconds.

Add more detergent if the lid of the detergent dispenser has opened. Then choose a new program, press Start/Stop, and close the door.
