Prior to using for the first time
Before using your dishwasher for the first time:
1. Ensure that the electrical and water connections comply with the
installation instructions
2. Remove all packaging from inside the appliance
3. Set the water softener
4. Pour 1 litre of water inside the salt container and then fill with
dishwasher salt
5. Fill the rinse aid dispenser.
Note:
If you want to use the "3 in 1" combi detergents, read carefully
the informations given in "Different kinds of detergents".
The water softener
The dishwasher is equipped with a water softener designed to remove
minerals and salts from the water supply, which would have a
detrimental or adverse effect on the operation of the appliance.
The higher the content of these minerals and salts, the harder your
water is.
Water hardness is measured in equivalent scales, Clarke degrees, French
degrees (°TH) and mmol/l (millimol per litre - international unit for the
hardness of water).
The softener should be adjusted according to the hardness of the water
in your area. Your local Water Authority can advise you on the
hardness of the water in your area.
The water softener must be set in both ways: manually, using the water
hardness dial and electronically, using the function buttons on the
control panel.

Filling with dishwasher salt
Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers.
All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in a
dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water softener.
Only fill with salt just before starting one of the complete washing
programmes.
This will prevent any grains of salt or salty water, which may have
been spilt, remaining on the bottom of the machine for any period
of time, which may cause corrosion.
To fill:
1. Open the door, remove the lower basket and unscrew the cap of
the salt container by turning it anticlockwise.
2. Pour 1 litre of water inside the container (this is necessary only
before filling with salt for the first time).
3. Using the funnel provided, pour in the
salt until the container is full.
4. Replace the cap making sure that
there is no trace of salt on the screw
thread or on the gasket.
5. Replace on the cap tightly turning it
clockwise until it stops with a click.
The salt container will require topping up periodically. You are
reminded of this by the salt indicator light on the control panel which
comes on when the salt has finished.
The salt indicator light on the control panel can remain
illuminated for 2-6 hours after the salt has been replenished,
assuming the dishwasher remains switched on. If you are using
salts that take longer to dissolve then this can take longer. The
function of the machine is not affected.
Do not worry if water over flows from the unit when filling with salt,
this is quite normal.

Rinse aid
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring
thorough rinsing, and spot and streak free drying.
The dispenser, which is positioned inside the door, holds about 110 ml
of rinse aid, which is sufficient for 16 - 40 dishwashing programmes,
depending upon the dosage setting.
Filling with rinse aid
1. Open the container by pressing the release button (A).
2. Add the rinse aid until the container is completely full. The
maximum level for filling is indicated by “max”.
Ensure that the lid is closed after every refill.
Clean up any rinse aid spilt during filling with an absorbent cloth
to avoid excess foaming during the next wash.
Only use branded rinse aid for dishwashers. Never fill the rinse aid
dispenser with any other substances (e.g. dishwasher cleaning
agent, liquid detergent). This would damage the appliance.

Adjusting the dose
According to the finish and drying results obtained, adjust the dose of
rinse aid by means of the 6 position selector (position 1 minimum
dosage, position 6 maximum dosage).
The dose is factory set in position 4.
Increase the dose if there are drops of
water or lime spots on the dishes after
washing.
Reduce it if there are sticky whitish
streaks on the dishes or a bluish film on
glassware or knife blades.
Top up the rinse aid when the indicator light on the control panel

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 glued parts that
are not temperature resistant
•Bonded cutlery items or dishes
•Pewter or copper items

18
are of limited suitability:
•Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it
is specifically marked as being dishwashersafe by the manufacturer.
•Glazed patterns may fade if machine
washed frequently.
•Silver and aluminium parts have a tendency
to discolour during washing. Residues, e.g.
egg white, egg yolk and mustard often
cause discolouring and staining on silver.
Therefore always clean left-overs from silver
immediately, if it is not to be washed
straight after use.
•Some types of glass can become dull after a
large number of washes.

The cutlery basket
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.
Forks and spoons should be placed in the removable cutlery basket
with the handles facing downwards and the knives with their handles
facing upwards.
If the handles protrude from the bottom of the basket, obstructing the
lower spray arm, load the cutlery with the handles facing upwards.
Mix spoons with other cutlery to prevent them from sticking together.
For best results we recommend you to use the
cutlery grids provided (if the size and
2
dimensions of the cutlery allow it).

Different kinds of detergent
Detergent tablets
Detergent tablets from different manufactures dissolve at different
rates. For this reason, some detergent tablets do not attain their full
cleaning power during short washing programmes. Therefore please
use long washing programmes when using detergent tablets, to ensure
the complete removal of detergent residuals.
Concentrated detergent
Modern detergents for dishwashers are almost exclusively low-alkaline
concentrated detergents with natural enzymes in tablet form.
Using 50°C washing programmes in conjunction with these
concentrated detergents reduces pollution and is good for your dishes,
as these washing programmes are specially matched to the dirtdissolving properties of the enzymes in concentrated detergents. It is
for this reason that using 50°C washing programmes in conjunction
with concentrated detergents can achieve the same cleaning results
that can otherwise only be achieved using 65°C washing programmes.

1. INTENSIVE CARE 70° programme is foreseen with Care Plus function, which gives
a greater degree of hygiene to dishes and glasses. In the last rinse the temparature
will be held at over 65°C for at least 10/11 minutes.
2. Testing programme for EN 50242 (see "Hints for Test Centres). This programme,
developed for the use of detergents with enzymes, allows you to achieve, with
reduced consumption of energy the same cleaning results that would otherwise be
obtained only with the 65°C programmes and conventional detergents.
To compensate the lower temperature, the duration of washing and drying have
been extended.
3. The consumption values are intended as a guide and depends on the pressure and
the temperature of the water and also by the variations of the power supply.

4. To interrupt or cancel a washing programme in
progress
Interrupt or cancel a washing programme in progress ONLY if
it’s absolutely necessary.
Attention! Hot steam may escape when the door is opened.
Open the door carefully.
Interrupt a washing programme in progress
Open the dishwasher’s door; the programme will stop.
Close the door; the programme will start from the point at which
it was interrupted.
Cancel a washing programme in progress
Open the dishwasher’s door. Press the programme
selection/cancel button for about 3 seconds, until the indicator
light of the running programme turns off and the end of
programme indicator light flashes, indicating that the running
programme has been cancelled and that the machine has returned

It is now possible to select another washing programme.
If a new washing programme is to be selected, check that there is
detergent in the detergent dispenser.
NOTE: only during the drying phase, if the dishwasher’s door
will be opened and remains open for more then 30 seconds,
the running programme will be automatically cancelled and
the machine will return to setting mode.
This will happen, always only during the drying phase, also
when the machine is switched off by pressing the On/Off
button and remains switched off for more then 30 seconds.
5. End of the washing programme
The dishwasher will automatically stop. An audible signal informs
you of the end of the washing programme.

6. Unloading the dishwasher
Hot dishes are sensitive to knocks. The dishes should therefore be
allowed to cool down before removing from the appliance.
Empty the lower basket first and then the upper one; this will
avoid water dripping from the upper basket onto the dishes in the
lower one.
Water may appear on the sides and the door of the dishwasher as
the stainless steel will eventually become cooler than the dishes.
When the washing programme has finished, it is recommended
that the dishwasher is unplugged and the water tap turned
off.

Operating instructions
Maintenance and cleaning
Clean the external surfaces of the machine and control panel with a
damp soft cloth. If necessary use only neutral detergents. Never use
abrasive products, scouring pads or solvent (acetone, trichloroethylene
etc....).
Ensure that the seals around the door, the detergent and rinse aid
dispensers are cleaned regularly with a damp cloth.
We recommend the use of Finish Dishwasher Cleaner every 3 months
or run a 65°C wash programme without dishes using detergent.
Regular use of Finish Dishwasher Cleaner cleans inaccessible parts,
eliminates unpleasant food odours and helps prevent the build-up of
limescale.
Cleaning the filters
The filters must be checked and cleaned from time to time.
Dirty filters will degrade the washing result.
Important! Before cleaning the filters ensure that the machine is
switched off.
1. Open the door, remove the lower basket.
2. The dishwasher filter system comprises a coarse filter (A), a
microfilter (B) and a flat filter (C).
Unlock the filter system using the handle on the microfilter, and
remove.
3. Turn the handle about 1/4 a turn anticlockwise and remove.
30

Operating instructions
4. Take hold of the coarse filter (A) by the handle with the hole and
remove from the microfilter (B).
5. Clean all filters thoroughly under running water.
6. Remove the flat filter (C) from the base of the washing
compartment and clean both faces thoroughly.
7. Put the flat filter (C) back in the base of the washing compartment.
8. Place the coarse filter (A) in the microfilter (B) and press together.
9. Put the filter combination in place and lock by turning the handle
clockwise to the stop. During this process ensure that the flat filter
does not protrude above the base of the washing compartment.
Attention!
Under no circumstances may the dishwasher be used without filters.
Incorrect repositioning and fitting of the filters will produce poor
washing results.
NEVER try to remove the upper
spray arm.
If residues of soil have clogged the
holes in the upper spray arm,
remove them with a cocktail stick.

Installation instructions
Installation instructions
Any electrical and/or plumbing work required to install this
appliance should be carried out by a qualified electrician and/or
plumber or competent person.
Remove all packaging before positioning the machine.
If possible, position the machine next to a water tap and a drain.
Building-in
This dishwasher is designed to be fitted under a kitchen counter or
worksurface.
Attention!
Carefully follow the instructions on the enclosed template for
building in the dishwasher and fitting the furniture panel.
No further openings for the venting of the dishwasher are required,
but only to let the water fill and drain hose and power supply cable
pass through.
The dishwasher incorporates adjustable feet to allow the adjustment of
the height.
During all operations that involve accessibility to internal components
the dishwasher has to be unplugged.
When inserting the machine, ensure that the water inlet hose, the
drain hose and the supply cable are not kinked or squashed.
Levelling
Good levelling is essential for correct closure and sealing of the door.
When the appliance is correctly levelled, the door will not catch on
either side of the cabinet.
If the door does not close correctly, loosen or tighten the adjustable
feet until the machine is perfectly level.
Fixing to the adjacent units
The dishwasher must be secured against tilting.
Therefore make sure that the counter it is fixed under, is suitably
secured to a fixed structure (adjacent kitchen units cabinets, wall).

Installation instructions
Water supply connections
This dishwasher may be fed with either hot (max. 60°) or cold water.
Nevertheless we advise you use a cold water supply.
A hot water supply is not always efficient with very soiled crockery as
it shortens the washing programmes a lot.
For making the connection itself, the coupling nut fitted to the
machine’s supply hose is designed to screw onto a 3/4" gas thread
spout or to a purpose made quick-coupling tap such as the Pressblock.
The water pressure must be within the limits given in the "Technical
specifications". Your local Water Authority will advise you on the
average mains pressure in your area.
The water inlet hose must not be kinked, crushed, or entangled when it
is being connected.
The dishwasher features fill and drain hoses which can be turned
either to the left or the right to suit the installation by means of the
locknut. The locknut must be correctly fitted to avoid water leaks.
(Attention! NOT all models of dishwashers have fill and drain hoses
provided with locknut. In this case, this kind of facility is not
possible).
If the machine is connected to new pipes or pipes which have not
been used for a long time, you should run the water for a few minutes
before connecting the inlet hose.
DO NOT use connection hoses which have previously been used for
an old appliance.
This appliance has been fitted with safety features which will prevent
the water used in the appliance from returning back into the drinking
water system. This appliance complies with the applicable plumbing
regulations.

Water inlet hose with safety valve
After connecting the double-walled water inlet hose, the safety valve
is next to the tap. Therefore the water inlet hose is only under pressure
while the water is running. If the water inlet hose starts to leak during
this operation, the safety valve cuts off the running water.
Please take care when installing the water inlet hose:
- The electrical cable for the safety valve is in the double-walled
water inlet hose. Do not immerse the water inlet hose or the safety
valve in water.
- If water inlet hose or the safety valve is damaged, remove the
mains plug immediately.
- A water inlet hose with safety valve must only be replaced by a
specialist or by the Service Force Centre.
- Place the water inlet hose in such a way that it is never higher than
the bottom edge of the safety valve.

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. 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 syphon 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.
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 therefore advise you to remove it.
