Setting 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.

Setting manually
The dishwasher is factory set at position 2.
1. Open the dishwasher door.
2. Remove the lower basket from the dishwasher.
3. Turn the water hardness dial to position 1
or 2 (see table).
4. Replace the lower basket.
Setting electronically
The dishwasher is factory set at level 5.
Enter Option menu - SETTINGS - WATER HARDNESS .
Using the up and down scrolling buttons set the level of the water softener according to

Use of dishwasher salt
WARNING!
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 normal.
The salt container will require topping up periodically.
10
Use of rinse aid
You are reminded of this by a displayed message REFILL SALT .
This occurs only at the start and at the end of the washing programme; during the running
of the programme the indication for salt refilling is not active.
The refilling salt message can remain visible 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.
Use of rinse aid
WARNING!
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 refill.
Clean up any rinse aid spilt during filling with
an absorbent cloth to avoid excess foaming
during the next wash.
The rinse aid container will require topping up periodically.
You are reminded of this by a displayed message REFILL RINSE AID .
Daily use
11
This occurs only at the start and at the end of the washing programme; during the running
of the programme the indication for rinse aid refilling is not active.
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.

2. Fill the detergent dispenser (1) with detergent. The marking indicates the dosing
levels:
20 = approximately 20 g of detergent
30 = approximately 30 g of detergent.
3. All programmes with prewash need an additional detergent dose (5/10 g) that must
be placed in the prewash detergent chamber (2).
This detergent will take effect during the
prewash phase.
4. When using detergent tablets, place the
tablet in compartment (1)
5. Close the lid and press until it locks in
place.
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.
Multitab function
This appliance is equipped with the "Multitab function", that allows the use of the "Multitab
" combi detergent tablets.
These products are detergents with a combined cleaning, rinsing and salt functions. They
can also contain other different agents depending on which kind of tablets you choose ("3
in 1", "4 in 1", "5 in 1" etc...).
Check whether these detergents are suitable for your water hardness. See the manufacturers instructions.
Select the "Multitab function " before the start of a washing programme.
Once this function is selected it will remain active also for the following washing programmes.
With the selection of this function the inflow of rinse aid and salt from each respective
supply container is automatically deactivated and also the displayed messages for salt and
rinse aid are deactivated.
With the use of the "Multitab function", the cycle durations may change. In this case, in
the display, the indication of the running time of the programme is automatically updated.
20
Washing programmes
Once the programme is running, the "Multitab function " can NO longer be changed. If you
want to exclude the "Multitab function " you have to cancel the programme setting and
then deactivate the "Multitab function ".
In this case you have to set a washing programme (and desired options) again.
If the drying results are not satisfactory we recommend that you:

is. The programme duration, water and energy consumption levels can vary; this depends upon if the appliance
is fully or partially loaded and if the dishes are lightly or heavily soiled. The temperature of the water is
automatically adjusted between 45° C and 70° C.
4) Ideal for washing a partially loaded dishwasher. This is the perfect daily programme, made to meet the needs
of a family of 4 persons who only wish to load breakfast and dinner crockery and cutlery.
5) This programme is foreseen with Care Plus function, which gives a greater degree of hygiene to dishes and
glasses. In the last rinse phase the temperature will be held at over 65°C for at least 10 minutes.
6) Test programme for test institutes.
7) This programme does not require the use of detergent
NIGHT CYCLE programme
Night Cycle is a silent washing programme that will not disturb you, even when you sleep.
It can be set at night or in times with a more economical power rate.
During the Night Cycle the pump runs at a very low speed to reach a noise level reduction
of 25% compared to the declared programme. As a consequence, it has a very long running
time.

• 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.
CAUTION!
When the washing programme has finished, it is recommended that the dishwasher is
unplugged and the water tap turned off.
Care and cleaning
Cleaning the filters
The filters must be checked and cleaned from time to time. Dirty filters will degrade the
washing result.
A displayed message will periodically appear to remind you to check and if necessary clean
the filters.
WARNING!
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. Unlock the filter system using
the handle on the microfilter, and remove
the filter system.

Care and cleaning
3. Turn the handle about 1/4 a turn anticlockwise and remove the filter system.
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 from the base of the
washing compartment and clean both
faces thoroughly.
7. Put the flat filter back in the base of the
washing compartment and ensure that it
fits perfectly.
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.
WARNING!
NEVER use the dishwasher without filters. Incorrect repositioning and fitting of the filters
will produce poor washing results and may result in damage to the appliance.
Cleaning the spray arms
NEVER try to remove the spray arms.
If residues of soil have clogged the holes in the spray arms, remove them with a cocktail
stick.
External 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....).
Internal cleaning
Ensure that the seals around the door, the detergent and rinse aid dispensers are cleaned
regularly with a damp cloth.
We recommend every 3 months to run the wash programme for heavy soiled dishes using
detergent but without dishes.

Installation instructions
Installation
WARNING!
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.
This dishwasher is designed to be fitted under a kitchen counter or work surface.
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.
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 unites, cabinets, wall).
28
Water connection
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.
Water connection
Water supply connections
This appliance can be connected to either a hot (max. 60°) or cold water supply.
With a hot water supply you can have a significant reduction of energy consumption. This
however, depends on how the hot water is produced. (We suggest alternative sources of
energy that are more environmentally friendly as e.g. solar or photovoltaic panels and
aeolian).
For making the connection itself, the coupling nut fitted to the machine's supply hose is
designed to screw onto a 3/4" thread spout or to a purpose made quick-coupling 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 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.

WARNING!
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 maximum
height of 60 cm 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.
The total length of the drain hose, including any
extension you might add, must be no longer than
4 metres. The internal diameter of the extension
hose 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.
To avoid water leakage after installation make sure that the
water couplings are tight.
