The Thoughtful Design Innovator.
Do you remember the last time you opened a gift that made you say
“Oh! How did you know? That’s exactly what I wanted!” That’s the kind of
feeling that the designers at Electrolux seek to evoke in everyone who
chooses or uses one of our products. We devote time, knowledge, and a
great deal of thought to anticipating and creating the kind of appliances that
our customers really need and want.
This kind of thoughtful care means innovating with insight. Not design for
design’s sake, but design for the user’s sake. For us, thoughtful design means
making appliances easier to use and tasks more enjoyable to perform, freeing
our customers to experience that ultimate 21st century luxury, ease of mind.
Our aim is to make this ease of mind more available to more people in more
parts of their everyday lives, all over the world. So when we say we’re thinking
of you, you know we mean just that.

First use
Before using your dishwasher for the
first time:
● Ensure that the electrical and
water connections comply with the
installation instructions
● Remove all packaging from inside
the appliance
● Fill the rinse aid dispenser
The dispenser holds about 110 ml of
rinse aid, which is sufficient for
between 16 and 40 dishwashing
cycles, depending upon the dosage
setting. 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).
Filling with rinse aid
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 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.
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.
Only use branded rinse aid for

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

Use of 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...).
1. Check whether these detergents
are suitable for your water
hardness. Follow the
manufacturers instructions.
Refilling the rinse aid dispenser may
no longer be necessary. In this case
the rinse aid indicator light will always
remain illuminated when the machine
is switched on.
2. Before starting the washing
program put the multi functions
tablet in the detergent dispenser.
If the drying results are not
satisfactory we suggest that you:
1. Fill up the rinse aid dispenser with
rinse aid.
2. Set the rinse aid dosage to
position 2.
If you decide to turn back to the
use of standard detergent system
we advise that you:
1. Fill up the rinse aid dispenser

scraps from sticking together).
This programme does not
require the use of detergent.
The “NORMAL ECO” program is
recommended to wash a full 12 place
setting load of normally soiled dishes.
It saves energy and water. Because it
runs at a lower temperature, it is not
suitable for heavily soiled wash loads.
To save energy, dry performance is
reduced so you may have to open the

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.
1. Open the door, remove the lower
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.
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.
3. Turn the handle about 1/4 a turn
anticlockwise and remove the filter
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.
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.

mild 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 every 3 months to
run the wash program for heavy
soiled dishes using detergent but
without dishes.
Prolonged periods of nonoperation

any prolonged period of time you are
advised to:
1. Unplug the appliance and then
turn off the water.
2. Leave the door ajar to prevent the
formation of any unpleasant
3. Leave the inside of the machine

Remove all packaging before
positioning the machine.
If possible, position the machine next
to a water tap and a drain.
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.
This dishwasher may be fed with
either hot (max. 60°) or cold water.
However, a hot water supply is not
always efficient with very soiled crockery
as it shortens the washing programmes
a lot. Therefore we recommend
connection to a cold water supply.
The water coupling nut fitted to the
machine’s supply hose is designed to
screw onto a 3/4" BSP thread spout.
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.
When the dishwasher is likely to be
connected to a solar hot water
system, drip heater, or any other
supply where temperatures in excess
of 60° are anticipated, a water
temperature tempering valve should
be installed. A pressure reducing
valve must be fitted if the hot water
supply pressure can exceed 350 kPa
or the cold supply pressure can
exceed 800 kPa.
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.
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.

Always use a new hose-set when
connecting the appliance to the
water mains. An old hose-set must
not be reused. The inlet hose
should be inspected every 12
months for deterioration and
replaced if necessary.
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.
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 must be
removed. Failure to remove all the
membrane will result in food particles
building up over time eventually
blocking the dishwasher drain hose
Drain hose
- Connect drain hose to the sink.
Secure it with the supplied hose
- Required height: 30 to 100 cm
above bottom of the dishwasher.
- If you use a drain hose extension
the total length should not be longer
than 4 metres. 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.
Ensure the hose is not bent or
squashed as this could prevent or
slow down the discharge of water.
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.

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 electrical rating data
is found on the rating plate.
Always plug the mains plug into a
correctly installed approved 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. If
the electrical supply cord has to be
replaced, contact your local
Customer Care 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.

This dishwasher is designed to be
fitted either under a kitchen counter or
a worksurface.
It is essential that the recess
dimensions indicated in the illustration
are followed.
No further openings for venting of the
dishwasher are required, but only to
let the water fill and drain hose and
power supply cable pass through.
The height of the recess where the
dishwasher is to be installed can vary
between 820 and 880 mm from the
floor since the dishwasher is fitted
with adjustable feet (max. 60 mm).
Leave a space of 2 mm between the
top of the dishwasher and the
underside of the kitchen counter.
Adjusting the height of the
To adjust the height proceed as
1. Loosen or tighten the two front
2. Loosen and remove the adjustable
3. Adjust the rear foot by turning the
screw in the middle of the front
kick plate to the left or to the right.
Good levelling is essential for correct
closure and sealing of the door. When
the appliance is correctly levelled, the
door will not catch on the levelling
spacers on either side of the cabinet.
If the door does not close properly,
loosen or tighten the adjustable feet
until the machine is perfectly level.
Adjusting the height of the plinth
It is important for the dishwasher to
be absolutely horizontal so that the
door seals properly.
The adjustable feet are to be turned
to the left or right until the dishwasher
is horizontal.
If there is a space at the bottom of the
machine,this can be covered by
lowering the plinth.

Securing the dishwasher
Secure the dishwasher by screwing it
firmly in position under the bench or
to the cupboard beside it. Use the
angular brackets supplied which are
fitted into the slots on the top of the
dishwasher (see fig.).
Tighten the machine in position
(upwards or sideways) by using the
screws supplied (3.5 x 16 mm).
Tighten the screws so that the
dishwasher cannot tip forward and
cause damage when the door is open
and loaded.
The dishwasher must be secured
to the underside of the worktop or
to adjacent units by using the
brackets supplied.
Neglect to do this can cause injury
or damage.
Under no circumstances may holes
be drilled through the sides of the
dishwasher since this could
damage the hydraulic components.
