In daily use
Loading cutlery and dishes
Sponges, cleaning cloths and any other objects that can absorb water
must not be washed in the dishwasher. Plastic and Teflon-coated dishes
tend to retain water droplets. These dishes therefore do not dry as well
as china and stainless steel.
For washing in the dishwasher, the following cutlery/dishes
are not suitable:
•Cutlery with wooden, horn,
china or mother-of-pearl handles
•Plastic items that are not heat
resistant
•Older cutlery with cement
that is sensitive to temperature
•Dishes or cutlery with glued parts
•Pewter or copper items
•Lead crystal glass
•Steel items that rust
•Wooden boards/platters
are of limited suitability:
•Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it
is specifically marked by the manufacturer
as being dishwasher-safe.
•Glazed patterns may fade if washed very
frequently in the dishwasher.
•Silver and aluminium parts have a tendency
to discolour when washed. Food remains,
e.g. egg white, egg yolk and mustard often
cause discoloration and staining on silver.
Therefore always clean food residues from
silver immediately, if it is not to be washed
straight after use.
•Items made from synthetic materials •Some types of glass can become dull after a
large number of washes.
• Before loading the dishes, you should:
- Remove the worst of the food residues.
- Soak pans with burnt on food residues.
• When loading the dishes and cutlery, please note:
- Dishes and cutlery must not impede the rotation of the spray arms.
- Load hollow items such as cups, glasses, pans, etc. with the
opening downwards so that water cannot collect in them
- Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another or
cover one another
- To avoid damage to glasses, they must not touch one another
- Lay small objects in the cutlery basket

Cutlery basket
Place knives, forks and spoons in the cutlery basket with their handles
pointing downwards.
Arrange cutlery loosely and distribute it in all compartments so that
each individual article has good contact with washing water. Also do
not arrange spoons and forks with their dirty side in contact with each
other.
Important! Exceptionally long cutlery, such as soup ladles, kitchen
knives, or the like, may obstruct the upper spray arm. Such cutlery can
be placed in the upper basket.
To unload your dishwasher more easily, you can take the cutlery basket
out of the lower basket and unfold it. this makes it easier to remove
small pieces of cutlery.
Important note! To prevent the full cutlery basket from inadvertently
unfolding when being taken out, place your hand right round the twopiece handle and hold it firmly.
1. Place the cutlery basket on a firm support (table, worktop) and
unfold both handle parts.
2. After unloading, fold back both handle parts.
UI25
UI20
Long bladed knives stored in an upright position are a potential
hazard.
Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving knives must be
positioned horizontally in the upper basket.
Take care when loading or unloading sharp items such as knives.

The upper basket
The upper basket is designed for plates (dessert plates, saucers, dinner
plates up to 24 cm in diameter), salad bowls, cups and glasses; these
should be arranged as shown in the pictures.
Glasses with long stems can be placed upside-down in the raised cupracks.
The cup-rack on the left folds upwards to increase your loading
flexibility.
Arrange items on and underneath the fold-down cup racks so that
water can reach all surfaces.
Light items (plastic bowls etc.) must be loaded in the upper basket and
arranged so they do not move.

(1) The consumption values were obtained under standardised conditions. They depend on how
full the baskets for the dishes are. Variations are therefore possible in practice.
(2) When using this cycle the degree of water clouding determines the amount of soiling on
the dishes. The length of the cycle and water and energy consumption can vary greatly –
depending upon the load and how dirty the dishes are. Depending upon the soiling, the
temperature of the water will be automatically adjusted to between 50°C and 65°C.

Switching off the dishwasher
When the wash programme has ended, a point-shaped optical
signal appears on the floor beneath the appliance’s door. Do not
open the dishwasher door before this optical signal illuminates.
The punctiform light signal is not dangerous as it is not a laser light.
If the appliance has been installed higher up with a forniture door
mounted flush, the optical signal will no longer be visible.
If the acoustic signal has been enabled, a continuous tone will sound
for 15 seconds at the end of the dishwashing cycle.
Hot steam may escape if the door is opened immediately after the

1. Open the door carefully.
2. Switch off the dishwasher by pressing the ON/OFF button.
All display indicators will go out.
If you do not switch off the dishwasher, the acoustic signal will
sound again 3 minutes later and 6 minutes later.
Removing the dishes
• It is normal for the inner door and the dispensers to be damp.
• Empty the lower basket first, then the upper basket. This way you
avoid dripping water in the upper basket onto dishes in the lower
basket.
• The dishwasher's interior light will always be on when the door of
the appliance is open. Therefore in order to save energy you should
always close the door of the dishwasher after having loaded or
removed dishes.

INSTALLATION AND CONNECTION
INSTRUCTIONS
Safety information for the installation
• Only transport the dishwasher in an upright position, otherwise salt
water may run out.
• Before using the dishwasher for the first time, check for any damage
caused in transport. Do not under any circumstances connect an
appliance that is damaged. In the case of damage, please contact
your supplier.
• Never use the dishwasher if the mains cable, water inlet or drain
hose are damaged; or if the control panel, work top or plinth area
are damaged such that the inside of the appliance is freely
accessible.
• Always plug the mains plug into a correctly installed shockproof
socket.
• Permanent connection: a permanent connection must only be
installed by a trained electrician.
• Prior to using the appliance for the first time, ensure that the rated
voltage and type of supply on the rating plate match that of the
supply where the appliance is to be installed. The fuse rating is also
to be found on the rating plate.
• Multi-way plugs / connectors and extension cables must not be used.
This could constitute a fire hazard through overheating.
• The dishwasher’s cable must only be replaced by the Customer Care
Department or a trained specialist technician.
• A water inlet hose with safety valve must only be replaced by the
Customer Care Department.

Installation and connection instructions
Installing the dishwasher
• The dishwasher must be installed on a firm floor and adjusted to
ensure that it is stable and level.
• To compensate for unevenness in the floor and to match the height
of the appliance to that of surrounding units, extend the threaded
feet using a screwdriver:
• Adjust the rear feet of the appliance using a cordless screwdriver
from the front of the appliance.
• The drain hose, inlet hose and mains cable must be laid so that they
are able to move freely within the plinth area and so that they are
not kinked or crushed.
• The dishwasher must also be screwed tightly to the work surface or
to the adjoining units. This is essential to ensure the dishwasher does
not tip up.

Installation and connection instructions
Connecting the dishwasher
Connecting to the water supply
• The dishwasher can be connected to cold and hot water supplies up
to max. 60°C.
• The dishwasher must not be connected to open hot water appliances
or instantaneous water heaters.
Permitted water pressure
Lowest permitted water pressure:
0,5 bar (=5 N/cm2 =50 kPa)
Consult your installer if the water
pressure is less than 0,5 bar.
Highest permitted water pressure:
8 bar (=80 N/cm2 =0,8 MPa)
If the water pressure is greater than 8
bar, a pressure reduction valve must be
used (available from your dealer).
Connecting the inlet hose
The water inlet hose must not be kinked, crushed or entangled when it
is being connected up.
Connect the threaded hose fitting (ISO 228-1:2000) on the water inlet
hose to a tap with an external thread (3/4 inch). The inlet hose is fitted
with either a plastic or a metal nut:
- Tighten the plastic nut hand tight only.
– You must tighten the metal nut using a tool.
Then do a visual check for water tightness (make sure that the tap is
not dripping).
• So that access to the tap in the kitchen is not limited by the use of
the dishwasher, we recommend installing an additional tap, or fitting
a T-branch to the existing tap.
Water drainage
Drain hose
The drain hose must not be kinked, crushed or entangled.
• Connecting the drain hose: maximum permitted height above the
bottom edge of the appliance: 60 cm.

Installation and connection instructions
Water outlet hose connection
The end of the drain hose can be connected in the following ways:
1. To the sink outlet spigot, securing it to the underside of the work
surface. This will prevent waste water from the sink running into the
machine.
2. Hooked over the edge of the sink using the special curved plastic
guide provided.
3. To a stand pipe provided with vent-hole, minimum internal
diameter 4 cm.
The waste connection must be at a height of between 30 cm
(minimum) and 100 cm (maximum) from the bottom of the
dishwasher.
The drain hose can face either to the right or left of the dishwasher
Ensure the hose is not bent or squashed as this could prevent or slow
down the discharge of water.
The sink plug must not be in place when the machine is draining as
this could cause the water to siphon back into the machine.
If you use a drain hose extension it must be no longer than 2 metres
and its internal diameter must be no smaller than the diameter of the
hose provided.
CS18
Likewise the internal diameter of the couplings used for connections
to the waste outlet must be no smaller than the diameter of the hose
provided.
Attention!
Our appliances are supplied with a security device to protect against
the return of dirty water back into the machine.
If the spigot of your sink has a "no return valve" incorporated this can
prevent the correct draining of your dishwasher.
We advise you therefore to remove it.

Anti-flood system
For protection from water demage, the dishwasher is equipped with a
anti-flood sytem.
In the event of a fault, the safety valve in the water inlet hose
immediately interrupts the supply of water to the appliance.
Electrical connection
Details about the voltage, type of supply and the fuses required are to
be found on the rating plate. The rating plate is located on the right
inner edge of the dishwasher door.
To isolate the dishwasher from the mains, pull out the mains plug.
Important:
– The plug must still be accessible after the appliance has
been installed.
– Following installation, live parts and insulated wiring must not be
accessible with a probe in accordance with EN 60335/DIN.
Connections
The water inlet hose, drain hose and the mains cable must all be
connected to the side of the dishwasher as there is no space for them
behind the appliance.
