First use
Before using your dishwasher for the first time:
• Ensure that the electrical and water connections comply with the installation
• Remove all packaging from inside the appliance
• Set the water softener
• Pour 1 litre of water inside the salt container and then fill with dishwasher salt
• Fill the rinse aid dispenser
If you want to use combi detergent tablets such as: "3 in 1", "4 in 1", "5 in 1" etc...
set the Multi-tab function (see "Multi-tab function").
Set 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.

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 the cap tightly turning it
clockwise until it stops with a click.
Do not worry if water overflows from the
unit when filling with salt, this is quite
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.
Filling with rinse aid
Filling with rinse aid
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.
Rinse aid ensures thorough rinsing, and spot and streak free drying.
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse.
1. Open the container by pressing the
release button (A).
2. Add the rinse aid in the container. The
maximum level for filling is indicated
by "max".
The dispenser holds about 110 ml of
rinse aid, which is sufficient for between 16 and 40 dishwashing cycles,
depending upon the dosage setting.
3. Ensure that the lid is closed after every
Clean up any rinse aid spilt during filling
with an absorbent cloth to avoid excess
foaming during the next wash.
Adjusting the dosage of rinse aid
Adjusting the dosage of rinse aid
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.

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.
Fitting under a counter (kitchen worktop or sink)
By removing the machine's worktop, you can install it under a close fitting sink
unit or a pre-existing top, providing the dimensions of the recess correspond to
those shown in the picture.
Proceed as follows:
1. Remove the machine's worktop by
unscrewing the two rear retaining
screws, pull the worktop from the
back of the machine and slide out the
front slots, lifting the worktop.
2. Insert the machine after adjusting the
levelling with the adjustable feet.
When inserting the machine, ensure that the water inlet and drain hoses are not
kinked or squashed.
During all operations that involve accessibility to internal components the
dishwasher has to be unplugged.
Be sure that once the appliance has been installed, it is easily accessible for the
service engineer in the event that a repair is required.
If the dishwasher is later used as a free-standing appliance, the original worktop
must be re-mounted.
The plinth on free-standing appliances is not adjustable.
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.
Water supply connections
Connection to a cold water supply is advised. If connection is made to a hot water
supply the maximum permissible temperature is 60°C. 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 quickcoupling tap such as the Press-block.
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
The water inlet hose must not be kinked, crushed, or entangled when it is being
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
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
• 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.
Warning! Dangerous voltage.
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 40 cm (minimum) and 85 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
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.
When connecting the drain hose to an under sink trap spigot, the entire plastic
membrane (A) must be removed. Failure to remove all the membrane will result
in food particles building up over time eventually blocking the dishwasher drain
hose spigot.
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.
Environment concerns
Electrical connection
Safety standards require the appliance to be earthed.
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.
Always plug the mains plug into a correctly installed shockproof socket. Multi-way
plugs, connectors and extension cables must not be used.
This could constitute a fire hazard through overheating.
If necessary, have the domestic wiring system socket replaced. In case that the
electrical cable has to be replaced, contact your local Service Force centre.
The plug must be accessible after the appliance has been installed.
Never unplug the appliance by pulling on the cable. Always pull the plug.
The manufacturer accepts no liability for failure to observe the above safety precautions.
Environment concerns
Packaging material
The packaging materials are environmentally friendly and can be recycled. The
plastic components are identified by markings, e.g. >PE<, >PS<, etc. Please dispose
of the packaging materials in the appropriate container at the community waste
disposal facilities.
When a unit is no longer being used:
• Pull the plug out of the socket.
• Cut off the cable and plug and dispose of them.
• Dispose of the door catch. This prevents children from trapping themselves inside
and endangering their lives.
