Ensure that the door of the dishwasher is always closed
when it is not being loaded or unloaded. In this way you
will avoid anybody injuring themselves on the open door.
If you take any dishes out of the dishwasher before the
end of the dishwashing cycle, it is extremely important
to rinse them thoroughly under running water to remove
any remaining detergent.
The water safety system protects against water damages.
The following requirements must be fulfilled:
- The dishwasher must be electrically connected when
it is switched off.
- The dishwasher must be correctly installed.
- Always shut off the water supply whenever the dishwasher is left unattended for an extended period.

Description of the appliance
Spray arm (1)
It is important to keep all the holes in the spray arm clear.
A clogged hole can seriously affect washing efficiency.
If the spray arm needs cleaning, unscrew the nut anticlockwise, remove the washer and lift off the spray arm.
Clear the holes and shake out any food remnants.
Coarse strainer/microfilter (2)
The purpose of the coarse strainer is to catch large objects
such as a cocktail stick and pieces of eggshell. Make sure
that the strainer is always clean. Turn the coarse strainer
anti-clockwise. Lift it out and rinse it under running water
whenever necessary.
Do not fill the rinse aid dispenser with liquid
Zanussi recommends the use of Finish dishwasher detergent and Rinse Aid.
Water softener (6)
This dishwasher is equipped with a water softener for hard
water. The lime in hard water causes white deposits to
occur on dishes and to the interior of the dishwasher.
To prevent this, the water has to pass through a special
container where the hardness is removed.
Since the water softener uses dishwasher salt, you will
have to refill the salt container after a certain number of
dishwasher cycles.
Fine filter (3)
It is extremely important, that the salt container
is filled up with the dishwasher salt before using
the dishwasher for the first time.
It is just as important to keep this filter clean. A dirty or
clogged filter will always impair washing efficiency.
The fine filter can easily be lifted out for cleaning when
you have removed the coarse strainer.
indicator light on the control panel is lit when the
container requires refilling.
Detergent dispenser (4)
1. Unscrew the filler cap to the salt container anticlockwise.
Open the lid to the dispenser by pressing the lid catch
towards the compartment. Consult the instructions on the
detergent packet, fill the compartment accordingly and
close the lid. Remember that the instructions usually refer
to full-size dishwashers, for example when using detergent
tablets, it is sufficient to use just half a tablet. Pre-wash
detergent is poured into the smaller compartment to the
left when needed. This detergent is used during the prerinsing. Make sure that nothing prevents the lid from
2. Fill the salt container with water (only the first
3. Fill the container with dishwasher salt, using the
funnel supplied.
4. Remove the funnel and wipe off any spillage
around the filler opening.
5. Screw the filler cap back properly in place.
The water softener is now ready for the first load of dishes.
Always make sure that there is dishwasher salt in the
container, which holds about 1 litre.
How to adjust the water softener, see chapter ”Adjusting
the water softener”.
Only use detergents specially designed for
Rinse aid dispenser (5)
Use of rinse aid will result in cleaner and faster drying of
the load, since it helps water and residues to run off.
Too much rinse aid may result in streakiness, too little
may cause white spots. The dispenser holds about 150 ml.
This is enough for approx. 60 wash cycles, depending
on the dosage setting. Adjust the dosage setting according
to the hardness of the water.
You can set the dosage between 1 - 6, the appliance is factory set to 1.
Begin at the lowest dosage setting and increase
if necessary by turning the setting arrow with e.g.
the handle of a spoon.

1) Different parts of the wash programme may not sound the same, because the wash action is more intensive
at some stages.
2) Consumption figures have been calculated for nominal conditions. The figures can vary depending on inlet
water temperature and how full the main and cutlery basket are.
3) Consumption figures and performance is according to the Energy Save programme cycle.
4) Prerinse is used if you want to wait until you have a full load. This cycle rinses the load and keeps it moist,
making the main wash easier later on. No detergent should be used.
All programmes begin with a drain.
Dishwashing detergent in tablet form is not suitable for use in the Quick programme cycle because
some tablets cannot develop their full cleaning power during short programmes.
Loading and unloading the dishwasher
How to load the dishes
The illustration shows the dishwasher loaded with six
place settings. Your own dishes are not likely to be
identical to this load, but if you follow the advice below
we are sure you will be pleased with the results.
Main basket
Cutlery basket
The cup shelves can be placed in two different
Always place glasses, cups and bowls upside down.
Incline deep dishes (soup plates etc.) so that the
water can run off when drying.
Make sure that the dishes do not rest against each
other. This is particularly important in regard to the
cutlery basket - nested spoons, etc. simply cannot be
properly washed. The water must get at all the soiled
Make sure that cutlery with slender handles and other
items do not protrude through the openings in the
basket and prevent the spray arm from rotating.
Never put silver and stainless steel objects together.
When these metals come into contact with each other
a chemical reaction occurs which stains the silver.
China with a pattern applied on top of the glaze may
not be suitable for machine washing as the colours
may fade and lose their lustre. The same applies to
cutlery with wooden or plastic handles.
Make sure you always buy articles that are
dishwasher proof.
Silver and aluminum items tend to discolour when
washed. Food remnants from egg and mustard often
causes discolourations and stains on silver. Make sure
to rinse off and remove food remnants on silver if it is
not washed immediately after it has been used.
Not all plastic articles are machine washable. If you
are in doubt as to whether your plasticware can be
machine washed, we suggest you check by washing
a single item or else wash them by hand.
When washing delicate items, select the programme
with the lower wash temperature.
Substances such as ketchup containing strong colouring
agents can cause temporary discolouration to the
interior of the dishwasher.
Do not place sharp knives with their points
upwards. It is much safer to lay them
horizontally in the main basket.
Hot dishes are sensitive to knocks. Always let the dishes
cool down before unloading.
The dishes dry faster if the door is opened
slightly for a short time once the programme
has finished.
Use care when opening the door as hot
steam may escape.

This dishwasher is equipped with the new flush
system called ”IMPULSE WASHING”. This
washing system varies both the revolutions of
the pump and the water pressure for more intensive cleaning of the dishes during a programme.
That is why different sections of the programme
cycle do not sound the same.
Maintenance and cleaning
General cleaning
Moving the dishwasher
Inspect the filters and spray arm nozzle before re-loading
the dishwasher and remove any food scraps. Wipe round
the rubber gasket at the bottom of the door to remove
grease which tends to collect there.
If you have to move the dishwasher (you are moving
house, etc):
1. Unplug it.
2. Turn off the water tap.
Cleaning the filters
3. Remove the water inlet and discharge hoses.
There are two filters, a coarse one and a fine one which
should be cleaned after every wash. Lift out these filters
which are in the base of the dishwasher and wash under
running water.
The dishwasher must not be used without the
filters. Incorrect repositioning of the filters will
produce poor washing results.
Avoid tilting the dishwasher during
Protecting the dishwasher against
Cleaning of the filters is vital to ensure correct
operation of the dishwasher.
Cleaning the spray arm
If the dishwasher is placed in an environment
where the temperature sometimes falls below
0° C, there is a risk that the small amount of
water which remains inside the parts of the
dishwasher will freeze and damage it.
To prevent this you should:
1. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher.
The holes in the spray arm must be kept free of scraps
for the efficiency of the washing action.
Inspect the spray arm regularly. When thorough cleaning
is necessary, remove the spray arm by unscrewing the
nut anti-clockwise, remove the washer and lift off the
spray arm.
Wash the spray arm with hot soapy water using a stiff
brush if necessary to remove scraps.
Re-assemble carefully, making sure the nut is secure.
Cleaning the cabinet
Wipe the outside of the cabinet and control panel regularly
with a soft damp cloth. When necessary, use washing up
liquid to remove stubborn marks, rinse with a damp cloth
and rub up with a soft duster.
Never use abrasive cleaners which could damage the
surface, ie: scouring pads or solvents (acetone, trichloriethylene, etc).
If the dishwasher is not going to be used for some
time, take the following precautions:
1. Unplug the dishwasher and turn off the water
2. Fill up the rinse aid container.
3. Make sure the tub is clean by carrying out a
wash programme (without any crockery) using
Finish Dishwasher cleaner, then dry the inside
4. Leave the door ajar.

If the dishwasher has been damaged during transport,
you should immediately notify the company responsible
for delivering it.
If you discover any damage, faults or that anything is
missing, you should notify your retailer immediately.
Never leave packaging material in a place where
children may play with it. Risk of suffocation!
Check that the following accessories are supplied with the
dishwasher when you unpack it:
– A funnel for filling salt (1)
– Elbow for discharge hose (2)
This dishwasher is designed solely for washing household
utensils suitable for washing in a dishwasher. Using it for
other purposes may damage it and invalidate the guarantee.
The dishwasher is intended to be installed on a kitchen
drainer, worktop or built-in. To function properly, make
sure that the appliance is level. Its height can be adjusted
with the adjustable feets (5 mm each). See the illustration
for built-in measurements.
- 16 -
Water inlet
The dishwasher is equipped with safety features
which are to prevent the water from going back
to the fresh water system. These features are according to current water technical safety regulations.
The dishwasher should be permanently plumbed into a
separate cold water supply.
The water pressure must be within the limits given in the
technical specifications, as it will not function correctly if
pressure is outside these specifications.
Your local Water Authority will advise you on the average
mains pressure in your area. Where the water is supplied
from a cold water cistern you can work out the pressure
yourself by measuring the vertical distance (or ‘Head’)
between the dishwasher’s inlet hose and the outlet from
the cold water storage cistern; allowing .86 psi for every 2
feet under normal conditions.
We would advise you to have a shut-off valve or stopcock in the water supply pipe close to the dishwasher
and accessible for easy use. This should be turned off
when the appliance is not in use. Connect the inlet hose
to a tap with a 3/4" pipe thread.
The inlet hose must not be joined onto any form of extension hose. If it is too short, the entire hose must be replaced with a longer high-pressure hose, specially designed
for the purpose. The end of the hose, which is connected
to the dishwasher can be turned in any direction. Loosen
the retaining nut, turn the hose, then retighten the nut.
Check that the nut and all other connections
are tight before the machine is moved into
Use only the inlet hose supplied to the dishwasher. Do not reuse an inlet hose used with
a previous machine.
Water drainage
To protect the dishwasher against water damage
it is equipped with a water safety system. In the
event of a fault the drain-pump starts automatically
and the remaining water inside the dishwasher is
pumped out.
The water safety system also works when the
dishwasher is switched off. However the dishwasher must be connected electrically.
Place the discharge hose over the sink as illustrated.
It must not at any point be higher up than 75 cm over the
surface which the dishwasher is standing on. If it runs
higher, operation of the dishwasher might be impaired.
It is also important to ensure that the inside diameter of the
hose is not less than 13 mm at any point. If the discharge
hose is too long, it can easily be cut to the right length.
1. Cut the hose to a suitable length, using a
sharp knife.
2. Fit the elbow supplied onto the end of the hose.
