in the container or a deep base.
– Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie
inside one another, or cover each other.
– To avoid damage to glasses, they must
not touch.
– Lay small objects in the cutlery basket.
• Plastic items and pans with non stick coatings have a tendency to retain water
drops; these items will not dry as well as
porcelain and steel items.
• Light items (plastic bowls etc.) must be
loaded in the upper basket and arranged
so they do not move.

stated on the detergent packaging.
Using no more than the correct amount
of detergent contributes to reducing pollution.

Detergent tablets from different manufacturers 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.
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 be used during the
prewash phase.

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.
When the washing programme has
finished, it is recommended that the

This programme does not require the use
of detergent.
1) The 'Anti+bac' programme provides a sanitising final rinse.
2) During the 'Auto' washing programme the level of soiling on the dishes is determined by how cloudy
the water is. The programme duration, water and energy consumption levels can vary; this depends
upon whether 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 50° C and 65° C.
3) 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.
4) The 'ECO' programme 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 have to open the door at the end of
the wash cycle or even towel dry some dishes.

Care and cleaning
Cleaning the filters
The filters must be checked and cleaned
from time to time. Dirty filters will degrade the
washing result.
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.
3. Turn the handle about 1/4 a turn anticlockwise and remove the filter system
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.
NEVER use the dishwasher without
filters. Incorrect repositioning and
fitting of the filters will produce poor
washing results and will result in
damage to the appliance.
NEVER try to remove the spray
If residues of soil have clogged the holes
in the spray arms, remove the debris
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...).
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
6. Remove the flat filter from the base of the
washing compartment and clean both
faces thoroughly.
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 you run the
wash programme for heavy soiled dishes using detergent but without dishes.
Prolonged periods of non-operation
If you are not using the machine for a prolonged period of time you are advised to:

(max. 60°) or cold water. However a hot water supply is not always efficient with heavily
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 appliance
water inlet hose is designed to screw onto a
3/4" BSP thread spout.
The water pressure must be within the limits
given in the 'Technical data'. Your local Water Authority will advise you on the average
mains pressure in your area.
A water temperature tempering-valve must
be installed 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 pressure reducing valve must be fitted if the
hot water supply pressure exceeds 350 kPa
or the cold water supply pressure exceeds
800 kPa.
The water inlet hose must not be kinked,
crushed, or entangled when it is being connected.
The dishwasher features inlet 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.
Always use a new hose-set when connecting the appliance to the water
mains. An old hose-set must not be
reused. The water 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.
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
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 the Customer Care
Warning! Dangerous voltage
Water drain connection
– Connect the water drain hose to the sink.
Secure it with the supplied hose clamp.
– Required height: 30 to 100 cm above bottom of the dishwasher.
– If you use a drain hose extension the total
length must be no 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 drain
hose is not bent or squashed as this could
prevent or slow down the discharge of water.
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
appliance 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
Electrical connection
Warning! 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 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 mains cable has to be replaced, contact your Customer Care
The plug must be accessible after
the appliance has been installed.
