INSTRUCTIONS

A

WARNING:

When using the dishwasher, follow basic precautions, including the following:

Read all instructions before using the dishwasher! Save these operating instructions and pass them on to any future user.

Use the dishwasher only for its intended purpose as described in this user manual. This appliance is intended for normal household use only.

The manufacturer disclaims responsibility for damage or injury caused by improper use of this appliance.

The information in this user manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire or explosion and to prevent property damage, personal injury or loss of life.

Do not operate your dishwasher unless all the enclosure panels are properly in place.

Do not tamper with the controls.

Do not abuse, sit on, stand in or on the door or dish rack of the dishwasher.

The cup racks are designed to support cups, glasses and kitchen utensils. When the cup racks are in the dishwasher do not lean on or use the cup racks to support your body weight.

To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in, on or near the dishwasher.

1

USA

Use only detergents or rinse aids recommended for use in a household dishwasher and keep them in a dry place out of the reach of children. Check that the detergent dispenser is empty after the completion of each wash program.

Dishwasher detergents are alkaline. They can be dangerous if inhaled or swallowed. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and keep children and infirm persons away from the dishwasher when the door is opened. Consult a doctor immediately if detergent has been swallowed or inhaled.

Do not drink water from the dishwasher! Harmful residues could be present.

Under certain conditions hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water heater system that has not been used for two weeks or more.

Hydrogen gas is explosive. If the hot water system has not been used for such period, before using the dishwasher turn on all hot water taps and let the water flow from each for several minutes.

This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.

Do not store or use flammable liquids or vapors in the area of the dishwasher.

When loading items to be washed, position sharp items so that they are not likely to damage the door seal and load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce the risk of cut-type injuries.

Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked “dishwasher safe” or the equivalent. For plastic items not so marked, check the

2

USA manufacturer’s recommendations.

If a malfunction occurs, switch off the appliance and turn off the water supply to the dishwasher.

Please do not attempt to carry the dishwasher by yourself in order to avoid potential injuries. Two or more people are needed to move a dishwasher.

Before cleaning or carrying out maintenance, switch off the appliance, disconnect the power plug and turn off the water supply.

Repairs and technical modifications must be carried out exclusively by a qualified technician.

If the dishwasher is not in use for an extended period of time (i.e. vacation home), we recommend you check that the baskets are empty, leave the inside of the dishwasher clean, leave the door cracked open to allow air to circulate and turn off both the power and water supply to the dishwasher.

This appliance must be grounded.

In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric current. This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug.

The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Potential hazards exist if any equipment uses electricity, water and moving parts.

This appliance must be connected to a grounded metal, permanent wiring system, or an equipmentgrounding conductor must be

run with the circuit conductors and connected to the equipmentgrounding terminal or lead on the appliance.

This appliance produces ozone within the washing compartment during normal operation. Longterm exposure to ozone or exposure at elevated levels may result in respiratory problems, especially for the infirmed, elderly and children.

It is the legal responsibility of parents/legal guardians to supervise or instruct concerning use of the machine when the children become old enough to operate.

Do not leave the door open in order not to cause a tripping hazard.

Remove the door to the washing compartment when removing an old dishwasher from service or discarding it. Ensure that the appliance presents no danger to children while being stored for disposal.

Remove the door lock or door of the washing compartment before disposing dishwasher so that children or small animals can not trapped inside.

Old appliances may contain materials that can be recycled.

Please contact your local recycling authority about the possibility of recycling these materials.

Please check the water supply line periodically. It is susceptible to breakage. It becomes less flexible as time goes by.Replace it immediately when it is torn, cut, swollen or there is water leakage.
