WATER SOFTENER
There are two ways to reduce the water hardness: one way is by using water softener, the other is by
using detergent.
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:
Safety Instructions
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 salt specifically designed to eliminate lime and minerals from the
water.
1 Remove the lower basket and unscrew and remove the cap from the salt container.
2 If you are filling the container for the first time, fill 2/3 of its volume with water.
the end of the salt filter(supplied) into the hole and introduce about 2kg of
3 Place
salt. It is normal for a small amount of water to come out of the salt container.
4 Carefully screw on the cap.
2. If there are spills of salt, a soak program could be run to clean the spills.
Adjusting Salt Consumption
Operating Instructions
The salt container must be refilled when the salt warning light comes on. Though the salt container is filled,
NOTE: 1. the
indicator light may not black out before the salt fully dissolves.
The dishwasher is designed to allow for adjusting the amount of salt consumed based on the hardness of the water used.
This is intended to optimize and customize the level of salt consumption.

Unscrew the cap from the salt container.
There is a ring on the container with an arrow on it (see Figure to the side). If
necessary, rotate the ring in the counterclockwise direction from the "-" s etting
toward the "+" sign, based on the hardness of the water being used.It is
recommended that adjustments should be made in accordance with the following

DETERGENT DISPENSER
Safety Instructions
The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each wash cycle according to the instructions provided in the" Wash Cycle
Table". Our dishwashers use less detergent and rinse aid than conventional dishwashers. Generally, only one tablespoon of
detergent is needed for a normal wash load. More heavily soiled items need more detergent. Always add the detergent just
before starting dishwasher, otherwise it could get damp and will not dissolve properly.
Amount of Detergent to Use
IF THE WATER ISN'T TOO HARD, YOU MAY ALSO PREVENT THE FORMATION OF DEPOSITS BY ADDING DETERGENT.
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.
Remember, you should adjust the amount of detergent you use little by little until you find the correct amount.

To remove hard water spots, try the following:
Run dishes through a normal wash program.
Remove all metal dishware, such as cutlery, pans, etc.,
from the dishwasher.
Do not add detergent.
Pour two cups of vinegar into a bowl and set the bowl face
up on the lower rack of the dishwasher.
Run the dishes through a normal wash program.
If this doesn't work, try the same process with 1 / 4 cup of
citric acid crystals instead of vinegar.
Proper Use of Detergent
Use only detergent specifically made for use in dishwashers.
Keep your detergent fresh and dry. Don't put powder
detergent into the dispenser until you are ready to wash dishes.
WARNING!
Dishwasher detergent is corrosive! Take care to keep it out of the reach of children.
RINSE AID DISPENSER
The rinse aid is released during the final rinse to prevent water
from forming droplets on your dishes that can leave spots and
streaks. It also improves drying by allowing water to "sheet"
off the dishes.
Troubleshooting Tips
SCALE 1.0 0
To open the dispenser, turn the cap to the "open" (left)
arrow and lift it out.
Pour the rinse aid into the dispenser, being careful not
to overfill.
Replace the cap by inserting it aligned with "open" arrow
and turning it to the "close" (right) arrow.
5
Our dishwashers are designed to use liquid rinse aids. The
rinse aid dispenser is located inside the door next to the
detergent dispenser. To fill the dispenser, open the cap and
pour the rinse aid into the dispenser until the level indicator
turns completely black. The dispenser holds about 100 ml of
liquid rinse aid.
Be careful not to overfill the dispenser, because this could
cause over sudsing. Wipe away any spills with a damp cloth.
Don't forget to replace the cap before you close the
dishwasher door.
If you have soft water, you may not need rinse aid as it may
cause a white film to develop on your dishes.
Adjusting Rinse Aid Dispenser
6
1
The rinse aid dispenser has six settings. Always start with the dispenser set
on " 1 ". If spots and poor drying are problems, increase the amount of rinse
aid dispensed by removing the dispenser lid and rotating the dial to "2". If the
dishes still are not drying properly or are spotted, adjust the dial to the next
higher number until your dishes are spot-free. We suggest the setting of "4".
When to Refill the Rinse Aid Dispenser
Safety Instructions
A measured amount of rinse aid is released during the final rinse. As with
detergent, the amount of rinse aid needed for your dishes depends on the
hardness of the water in your area. Too much rinse aid can result in lather or
foaming and can cause cloudiness or streaks on your dishes. If the water in
your area is very soft, you may not need rinse aid. If you do, you can dilute
the rinse aid with an equal amount of water.
3 2
5 4
If there is no rinse aid warning light or the control panel, you can judge the amount of rinse aid by the following means. The
black dot on the rinse aid dispenser indicates the amount of rinse aid in the dispenser. As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of
the black dot decreases. You should never let the rinse aid get below 1 / 4 full.
As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of the black dot on the rinse
aid level indicator changes, as illustrated below.

2 Do not open the door until the water spray action stops. Steam may rise out of the dishwasher.
3 Add forgotten dishes.
4 Push the door to close . When the door is properly closed, a click will sound.
FILTERING SYSTEM
For your convenience, we have placed the drain pump and filtering system within easy reach inside the tub. There are three
components of the filtering system: the main filter, the coarse filter, and the fine filter.
1 Main filter
Food and soil particles trapped by this filter are pulverized by a special jet on the lower
spray arm and washed down the drain.

2 Coarse filter
Larger items, such as pieces of bone or glass, that could clog the drain are trapped in the
coarse filter. To remove an item caught in this filter, gently squeeze the tabs on top of this
filter and lift it out.
3
Fine filter
This filter holds soil and food residue in the sump area and prevents it from being
redeposited on the dishes during a cycle.
CARING FOR THE DISHWASHER
Never use sharp objects, scouring pads or harsh cleaners on any part of the dishwasher.

Troubleshooting Tips
To clean the control panel use a lightly dampened cloth then dry thoroughly. To clean the exterior use a good
appliance polish wax.
Cleaning the Spray Arms
It is necessary to clean the spray arms regularly as hard water chemicals will clog the spray arm jets and bearings. To remove the
spray arm, screw off the nut to take out the washer on top of the spray arm and remove the arm. Wash the arms in soapy, warm
water and use a soft brush to clean the jets. Replace after rinsing them thoroughly.
Cleaning the Filters
Filter assembly
For best performance and results, the filter assembly must be cleaned.
The filter efficiently removes food particles from the wash water, allowing it to be recirculated
during the cycle. For this reason, it is a good idea to remove the larger food particles trapped in
the filter after each wash cycle by rinsing the semicircular filter and cup under running water.
To remove the filter assembly, pull on the cup handle in the upward direction. The entire filter
assembly should be cleaned at least once a month.
To clean the coarse filter and the fine filter, use a cleaning brush. Then, reassemble the filter
parts as shown in the figure at left and reinsert the entire assembly in the dishwasher,
positioning in its seat and pressing downward.
The dishwasher must never be used without the filters. Improper replacement of the filter may
reduce the performance level of the appliance and may damage dishes and utensils.
WARNING!
Never run the dishwasher without the filters in place.
Cleaning the Door
To clean the edge around the door, you should use only a soft warm, damp rag. To prevent
penetration of water into the door lock and electrical components, do not use a spray cleaner
of any kind.
Also, never use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads on the outer surfaces because they will
scratch the finish. Some papers towels can also scratch or leave marks on the surface.
Cleaning the Drain Pump
Something will occasionally move into the filters and the drain pump. If this occurs, the drain pumps
employed in our dishwashers are designed to automatically reverse, ejecting the item back into the
sump area or down the drain. If you have to remove an obstacle from the drain pump, before you
remove the filters, you should turn off the power; Then remove the small black insert from the sump
area. (You might want to remove any standing water first). Scoop out the item that is probably in the
sump area and causing the obstruction. Remember to replace the black insert before replacing the filters.
How to Keep Your Dishwasher Running Properly
After Every Wash
When You Go on Holiday
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, 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 in
the appliance.
No Solvents or Abrasive Cleaning
Products
To clean the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher, do
not use solvents or abrasive cleaning products. Use only a
cloth and warm, soapy water. To remove spots or stains from
the surface of the interior, use a cloth dampened with warm
water and a little white vinegar, or a cleaning product made
specifically for dishwashers.
9
Seals
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 occurring.

Troubleshooting Tips

Make sure the dishwasher is level.
The dishwasher is designed to detect/monitor water overflow conditions. The overflow tube is located in the lower (well)
section of the inner door liner. This tube must be kept free and clear of obstructions and debris. In the event of an overflow
condition, the water level rises above the height of the overflow tube and is directed into the overflow container.
(located at the lower right side of the dishwasher)
When the water level reaches a predetermined height, the float switch is activated closing power to the water inlet valve and
automatically turns on the pump to evacuate the water inside the tub only. The accumulated water inside the float container
must be discharged manually before the dishwasher can be re-started. To empty the float container, follow the instructions below.
