Salt ......
The hardness of the water varies from place to place. If
hard water is used in the dishwasher, deposits will form
on the dishes and utensils.
The appliance is equipped with a special softener that
uses a salt specifically designed to eliminate lime and
minerals from the water.
Loading the Salt into the Softener
Always use salt intended for use with dishwashers.
The salt container is located beneath the lower rack and
should be filled as follows:
1. Remove the lower rack and then
unscrew and remove the cap from
the salt container;
2. If you are filling the container for
the first time, fill it with water;
3. Place the end of the funnel
(supplied) into the hole and introduce about 2 kg of salt. It is normal
for a small amount of water to come out of the salt
4. Carefully screw the cap back on.
Adjusting Salt Consumption
The dishwasher is designed to allow for adjusting the
amount of salt consumed based on the harness of the
water used. This is intended to optimize and customize
the level of salt consumption so that it remains at a minimum.
Your Local Water Board can supply
the degree of hardness of the water
in your area.
To adjust salt consumption, proceed as follows:
1) Unscrew the cap from the salt
2) There is a ring on the container with an arrow on it (see
figure to the side), if necessary, rotate the ring in the anticlockwise direction from the "_" setting towards the "+"
sign, based on the hardness of the water being used.
It is recommended that adjustments be made in accordance with the following schema:
0 - 10
0 - 17
0 - 1.7
10 – 25
18 – 44
1.8 – 4.4
25 – 50
45 – 89
4.5 – 8.9
> 50
> 89
> 8.9
Hardness of the water
The salt container should be filled after about every 30
wash cycles.
Warning: To prevent rust from forming, we advise you
to load the salt before starting a wash cycle.
(cycles/2 kg)
Only use products which have been specifically
designed for dishwashers.
Do not use table salt or industrial salt, or washing
up liquid.
Follow the instructions given on the packaging.
All-in-one dishwasher tablets are now available on the market, and combine detergent, salt and rinse aid all in one.
If the water in your area is hard or very hard, we still recommend you pour extra salt into the relevant dispenser to
prevent the formation of white streaks on your dishes or on the interior of the appliance.
Using a three-in-one product means it is no longer necessary to put rinse aid into the relevant container.
If you want to achieve perfectly dry dishes, you may add rinse aid as long as the dosage adjuster is set to no.2.
In any case, please read the manufacturer's instructions on the packet.
Detergent and Rinse Aid ....
Rinse Aid
This product makes dishes sparkle more as it improves their
drying. The rinse aid container is situated on the inside of the
appliance door; you should refill it when you see the container
is empty by means of indicator “D”.
Detergent specifically intended for use with dishwashers
must be used. The dispenser must be refilled before the
start of each wash cycle following the instructions provided
in the "Wash Cycle Table." The detergent dispenser is located
on the inside panel of the door.
Loading the Rinse Aid
Loading the detergent
To open the dispenser, turn the "C" cap in the anti-clockwise
direction and then pour in the rinse aid, making sure not to
overfill. The amount of rinse aid used for each cycle can be
regulated by turning the "F" dose adjustor, located beneath
the "C" cap, with a screwdriver. There are 6 different settings;
the normal dosage setting is 4.
To open lid "A", press button "B". The cleaning detergent
should be introduced into the two containers "C"and "D"
up to the rim.
After pouring in the detergent, replace the lid, pressing down
until it clicks.
Dishwasher detergent in tablets is now available on the
market, in which case you should place one tablet into
container "D" and replace the lid.
To obtain the best results from each washing and drying
cycle, powder detergent, rinse aid liquid and salt should be
Proper dosage of the rinse aid improves drying.
If drops of water remain on the dishes or spotting occurs, the
dosage adjustor should be turned to a higher setting. If the
dishes have white streaks, turn the dosage adjustor to a lower
Notice: To facilitate closing the cover, remove any
excess detergent on the edges of the dispenser.
Using excessive detergent may result in foam
residue remaining in the machine after the cycle has
A good wash result also depends on the correct
amount of detergent being used; exceeding the
stated amount does not result in a more effective
wash and increases environmental pollution.
The use of tablets is only recommended for
models which offer the MULTI-FUNCTIONAL
TABLETS option.
Only use detergent which has been specifically
designed for dishwashers.
To achieve the best results from each washing
and drying cycle, powder detergent, rinse aid liquid
and salt should be used.
DO NOT USE washing up liquid.
Loading the Dishwasher
Before placing the dishes in the dishwasher, remove
the larger food particles to prevent the filter from
becoming clogged, which results in reduced performance.
If the pots and pans have baked-on food that is
extremely hard to remove, we recommend that they be
allowed to soak before they are washed. This will eliminate the need for extra wash cycles.
Pull out the racks to facilitate loading the dishwasher.
Loading examples for the upper rack
How to Use the Lower Rack
We recommend that you place the most difficult to clean
items on the bottom rack: pots, pans, lids, serving
dishes and bowls, as shown in the figure to the right.
It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the
sides of the racks in order to avoid blocking the rotation
of the top spray arm.
- Pots, serving bowls, etc. must always be placed top
- Deep pots should be slanted to allow the water to flow
Loading examples for the lower rack
Cutlery basket
The type of cutlery basket may vary according to the
dishwasher model.
This basket is equipped with two removable grids: insert
the cutlery one by one into the slots.
Cutlery basket
Knives and other sharp utensils should be placed in
the cutlery basket with the point facing downwards, or
they must be positioned horizontally in the tip-up
compartments on the upper rack.
- Especially long utensils should be placed in the
horizontal position at the front of the upper rack.
How to Use the Upper Rack
The upper rack is designed to hold more delicate
and lighter dishware, such as glasses, coffee and tea
cups 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 they do
not get moved by the spray of water.
How to adjust the Upper rack ...
The top rack can be adjusted using the two rack heights
(top and bottom). To adjust the rack, open up the tabs
that lock the guides and pull out the rack. Arrange the
rack with the back wheels in either the top or bottom
position and then insert it along the guides until the
front wheels are on as well. Close the tabs to lock the
rack in place (see Fig. F).

Cycle phase indicator lights
The dishwasher is provided with 4 indicator lights "G" which
come on in sequence as the appliance is performing that
specific phase of the wash cycle.
These phases are:
• Turn off the water tap.
• Wait a few minutes before unloading the dishes: if you
wait a little while, they dry better thanks to the steam.
• Empty the lower rack first.
Warning: when you open the dishwasher door after
the wash cycle has just ended or is under way, take care
not to scald yourself with the hot steam.
Cancelling or modifying a wash cycle in progress…..
Premise: You can cancel the wash cycle in progress, if it
has only just started.
To modify a wash cycle, keep the RESET button "R"
pressed for about 5 seconds: a prolonged beep will sound,
followed by three short beeps. Indicator light "G" will turn
off and at this point, all the settings will have been

Energy Saving Tips
- It is important to try and run the dishwasher when it is
fully loaded in order to save on energy. In order to prevent
odors from forming and food from caking onto the dishes,
you can run the hold cycle.
- Choose the right wash cycle: the choice of cycle depends
on the type of dishware, cookware and utensils being
washed and how dirty they are.
- Use the right amount of detergent: if you use too much
detergent, the result will not be cleaner dishes, but, rather,
a greater negative impact on the environment.
- There is no utility in rinsing dishes, cookware and utensils
before placing them in the dishwasher.
How to Keep Your 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.
When You Go on Holiday
When you go on holiday, it is recommended that you run
a wash cycle with the dishwasher empty and then remove
the plug from the socket, turn off the water supply and
leave the door of the appliance slightly ajar. This will help
the seals last longer and prevent odors from forming within
the appliance.
Remove the Plug
Before cleaning or performing maintenance, always
remove the plug from the socket. Do not run risks.
No Solvents or Abrasive Cleaning Products
To clean 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.
Moving the Appliance
If the appliance must be moved, try to keep it in the vertical
position. If absolutely necessary, it can be positioned on
its back.
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 occuring.
Disposal of old electrical appliances
The European Directive 2002/96/EC on Waste Electrical
and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), requires that old
household electrical appliances must not be disposed of
in the normal unsorted municipal waste stream. Old
appliances must be collected separately in order to
optimise the recovery and recycling of the materials they
contain and reduce the impact on human health and the
The crossed out "wheeled bin" symbol on the product
reminds you of your obligation, that when you dispose of
the appliance it must be separately collected.
Consumers should contact their local authority or retailer
for information concerning the correct disposal of their
old appliance.
Cleaning and Special Maintenance
The filter assembly
If you want consistent good results from your dishwasher, you
need to clean the filter assembly.
The food particles are removed from the wash water, allowing
it to be recirculated during the
cycle, filtered perfectly. For this
reason, it is a good idea to
remove the larger food particles
trapped inside the cup “C” and
the semi-circular filter A after
each wash; pull the cup handle
upwards to remove them. Just
rinse them under running water.
The entire filter assembly should be cleaned thoroughly once
a month: cup C + semi-circular filter A + cylindrical filter B.
Rotate filter “B” anticlockwise to remove it.
For cleaning, use a non metallic brush.
Reassemble the filter parts (as shown in the figure) and reinsert
the whole assembly into the dishwasher. Position it into its
housing and press downwards.
The dishwasher is not to be used without filters. Improper
replacement of the filters may reduce the efficiency of the
wash and even damage your dishwasher.
Cleaning the sprayer arms.
Food residue may become encrusted onto the sprayer arms
and block the holes where water comes out. Check the sprayer
arms regularly and clean them once in a while (letters F and I
“How is it made?”).
It may occur that the dishwasher does not function or does not
function properly. Before calling for assistance, let us see what can
be done first: have you forgot to press one of the buttons or to
perform an essential operation?
The Dishwasher Does Not Start
Have you checked whether:
- the plug is pushed into the socket correctly;
- the power is on in the house;
- the door is closed properly;
- the ON-OFF switch is on "ON";
- the water supply is turned on.
The Dishwasher Does Not Load Water
Have you checked whether:
- the water is turned on and the hose is connected properly;
- the water supply to the house is on and has sufficient
- the water supply hose is crimped or bent;
- the filter for the water supply hose is clogged.
The Dishes Are Not Clean
Have you put the right amount of detergent into the dispenser?
Is the wash cycle suitable for the dishes you have placed inside the
Are the filter and microfilter clean?
Can the sprayer arms turn freely?
The Dishwasher Does Not Drain
Have you checked whether:
- the drain hose is crimped or bent.
Lime Deposits or a White Film Form on the Dishes
Have you checked whether:
- the lid to the salt container is closed properly;
- the rinse aid dosage is correct.
Error messages.
Your dishwasher is equipped with a safety system which is able to
detect any operating anomalies. These anomalies are reported by
one or two wash cycle indicator lights "G" flashing rapidly.
Take a note of which lights are flashing, turn the appliance off and
call for technical assistance.
Tap off alarm
If you have forgotten to turn the water tap on, your appliance will
remind you of this by sounding a few short beeps for a few minutes.
Turn the tap on and your appliance will start up again after a few
minutes. Were you to be absent when these beeps are sounded, the
appliance will be blocked automatically and indicator lights 2 and 3
(wash and rinses) will flash rapidly. Turn the appliance off at the ONOFF button, turn on the water tap and wait approximately 20 seconds
before turning the appliance back on; repeat the programming
operations and the selected wash cycle will start up again.
Clogged filter alarm
If the appliance is blocked and indicator lights 1 (pre-wash) and 3
(rinses) flash rapidly, this means the filter is clogged by large
particles of food residue. Turn the appliance off, clean the filter
thoroughly and reposition it in its seat as illustrated on this page.
Then turn it back on. Repeat the programming operations and the
wash cycle will start up again.
Water load solenoid valve malfunction alarm.
If indicator light 2 (wash) flashes rapidly, TURN the dishwasher OFF
AND BACK ON AGAIN after one minute. If the alarm persists, first
turn off the water tap to avoid any flooding and then cut off the
electricity supply and call for technical assistance.
If, despite all these checks, the dishwasher still does not function
and/or the problem persists, contact the nearest authorised service
centre and provide them with the following information:
- the nature of the problem;
- the model type number (Mod. ...) and the serial number (S/N ....),
which are indicated on the plate located on the side of the inner part
of the door.
Never call on unauthorised technicians and refuse to
allow parts to be installed that are not original spare parts.
Positioning the Appliance
Position the appliance in the desired location. The back
should rest against the wall behind it, and the sides, along
the adjacent cabinets or wall. The dishwasher is equipped
with water supply and drain hoses that can be positioned
to the right or the left to facilitate proper installation.
Levelling the Appliance
Once the appliance is positioned, adjust the feet (screwing
them in or out) to adjust the height of the dishwasher,
making it level. In any case, the appliance should not be
inclined more than 2°.
If the appliance is level, it will help ensure proper performance.
This dishwasher model can be built under a single worktop
(please read the relevant instruction sheet).
Anti-flooding protection
Your dishwasher is provided with a special system which
blocks the water supply in the event of leaks inside the
Cold water connection.
This electric household appliance should be connected
to the water mains using the cold water supply hose
provided with the appliance only. Do not use a different
hose. In the event of replacements, use original spare
parts only.
Connect the cold water supply hose to a 3/4 gas threaded
connection, taking care to screw it tightly onto the tap.
If the water hoses are new or have been out of use for an
extended period of time, let the water run to make sure it
is clear and free of impurities before making the
connection. If this precaution is not taken, the water inlet
could get blocked, causing damage to your dishwasher.
Hot Water Connection
The water supply to the appliance can also be connected
to the house's hot water line (centralised system, heating
system), as long as it does not exceed a temperature of
60° C.
In this case, the wash cycle time will be shortened by
about 15 minutes and the wash efficiency slightly reduced.
The connection must be made to the hot water line
following the same procedures as those for the connection
to the cold water line.
Drain Hose Connection
Fit the drain pipe into a drain line with a minimum diameter
of 4 cm or place it over the
sink. Avoid restricting or
bending it. Use the special
plastic elbow provided (see figure) to position it in the best
possible way. The part of the
pipe marked with the letter A
should be between 40 and 100
cm above the ground.
The pipe should not be
immersed in water.
Electrical Connection
After making sure that the voltage and frequency values
for the current in the home correspond to those on the
rating plate (located on the stainless steel inner door of
the appliance) and that the electrical system is sized for
the maximum voltage on the rating plate, insert the plug
into an electrical socket which is earthed properly (the
earthing of the appliance is a safety requirement mandated
by law). If the electrical socket to which the appliance
must be connected is not appropriate for the plug, replace
the plug, rather than using adpators or the like as they
could cause overheating and burns.
Once the appliance has been installed, the power
supply cable and the electrical socket should be easily
The cable should not be bent or compressed.
If the power supply cable is damaged, it must be
replaced by the manufacturer or its Technical
Assistance Service in order to prevent all potential
hazards. (See Assistance)
