INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
INSTALLATION
Fitting under a counter
WARNING!
Make sure that the mains plug is disconnected from the mains socket during installation.
24
Installation
Put the appliance adjacent to a water tap and a
water drain. Remove the appliance worktop to
install it under a sink unit or a kitchen worktop.
Make sure that the dimensions of the recess
agree with the given dimensions.
Do these steps to remove the appliance worktop:
1. Remove the rear screws (1).
2. Pull the worktop from the behind the appliance.
3. Lift the worktop and move it from the
front slots.
4. Use the adjustable feet to adjust the level
of the appliance.
Install the appliance under the kitchen worktop. Make sure that there are no kinks in the
water hoses and that the water hoses are not
squashed.
If a repair is necessary, the appliance must be easily accessible for the engineer. Install the
appliance worktop to the appliance if you want to use the dishwasher as a freestanding
appliance.
The plinth on freestanding appliance is not adjustable.
Adjusting the level of the appliance
Make sure that the appliance is level to close and seal the door correctly. If the level of the
appliance is correct, the door does not catch on the sides of the cabinet. If the door does
not close correctly, loosen or tighten the adjustable feet until the appliance is level.
Water connection
25
WATER CONNECTION
Water inlet hose
Connected the appliance to a hot (max. 60°) or cold water supply.
If the hot water comes from alternative sources of energy that are more environmentally
friendly (e.g. solar or photovoltaic panels and aeolian), use a hot water supply to decrease
energy consumption.
Connect the inlet hose to a water tap with an external thread of 3/4”.
CAUTION!
Do not use connection hoses from an old appliance.
The water pressure must be in the limits (refer to 'Technical data'). Make sure that the local
water authority gives you the average mains pressure in your area.
Make sure that there are no kinks in the water inlet hose and that the water inlet hose is
not squashed or entangled.
Fit the locknut correctly to prevent water leaks.
CAUTION!
Do not connect the appliance to new pipes or pipes that are not used for a long time. Let
the water run for some minutes, then connect the inlet hose.
The water inlet hose is double-walled and has an inner mains cable and a safety valve. The
water inlet hose is under pressure only while the water is running. If there is a leak in the
water inlet hose, , the safety valve interrupts the running water.
Be careful when you connect the water inlet hose:
• Do not put the water inlet hose or the safety valve in water.
• If the water inlet hose or the safety valve is damaged, immediately disconnect the mains
plug from the mains socket.
• Only let the Service Force Centre replace the water inlet hose with safety valve.
WARNING!
Dangerous voltage
Water drain hose
1. Connect the water drain hose to the sink spigot and attach it under the work surface.
This prevents that the waste water from the sink goes back into the appliance.
26
Electrical connection
max 400 cm
2. Connect the water drain hose to a stand pipe with vent-hole (minimum internal diameter 4 cm).
Make sure that the drain hose is not bent or
max 85 cm
squashed to prevent that the water drains does
not drain correctly.
Remove the sink plug when the appliance drains
min 40 cm
the water to prevent that the water goes back into
the appliance.
A drain hose extension must not be longer than 2
m. The internal diameter must not be smaller than
the diameter of the hose.
If you connect the water drain hose to a trap spigot under the sink, remove the plastic membrane
(A). If you do not remove the membrane, remaining food can cause a blockage in the drain hose
spigot
The appliance has a security feature to prevent
that dirty water goes back into the appliance. If,
the spigot of the sink has a 'non-return valve', this
valve can cause the appliance to drain incorrectly.
Remove the non-return valve.
CAUTION!
Make sure that the water couplings are tight to prevent water leakage.
