Safety and warnings
Important safety precautions
For your safety, follow basic precautions when using your dishwasher, including the following:
Please read all instructions before operating your dishwasher.
The information in this user guide must be followed to minimise the risk of fire or explosion, or to
prevent property damage, personal injury or loss of life.
Operational
Use the dishwasher only for its intended function as described in this user guide.
Dishwasher detergents are alkaline. They can be dangerous if swallowed. Avoid contact with skin
and eyes, and keep children and infirm persons away from the dishwasher when the door is open.
Use only detergents or rinse aid recommended for use in a domestic dishwasher and keep them
out of reach of children. Check that the detergent dispenser is empty after the completion of each
wash programme.
When loading items to be washed, place sharp items where they are not likely to damage the
dishwasher and load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce the risk of cut type injuries.
Do not tamper with the controls of your dishwasher.
Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish rack of your dishwasher. Do not place any
heavy objects on the door when it is open. The dishwasher could tip forward.
To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or on the dishwasher.
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 a period, then 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 hydrogen gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.
Remove the door to the washing compartment when removing an old dishwasher from service or
discarding it.
Open the door very carefully if the dishwasher is in operation. There is a risk of being sprayed
with hot water. Do not open the door fully until the spray arm has stopped rotating.
The door should not be left in the open position as this could present a tripping hazard.
When disconnecting the dishwasher pull by the plug rather than the cord or junction of cord to
avoid damage.
This dishwasher is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons unless they have been
adequately supervised by a responsible person to ensure that they can use the dishwasher safely.
Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the dishwasher.
The water inside the dishwasher is not suitable for drinking.
This dishwasher is designed for washing normal household utensils. Items that are contaminated
by petrol, paint, steel or iron debris, or corrosive, acidic or alkaline chemicals are not to be
washed in this dishwasher.
If the dishwasher is not being used for long periods of time, turn the electricity and water supply
to the dishwasher off.
Safety and warnings

Installation
This dishwasher must be installed and positioned in accordance with the ‘Installation
instructions’ before it is used.
Installation and service should be performed by a qualified technician.
If the power supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or Authorised
Service Centre or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
Ensure the dishwasher is placed between cabinetry. Failure to do so may result in an unstable
product, which may cause damage or injury.
Do not operate this dishwasher if it is damaged, malfunctioning, partially disassembled or has
missing or broken parts, including a damaged power supply cord or plug.
Do not store or use petrol or other flammable vapours and liquids in the vicinity of the
dishwasher.
Connect to a properly rated, protected and sized power supply circuit to avoid electrical overload.
Make sure that the power supply cord is positioned where it will not be stepped on, tripped over,
or otherwise subjected to damage or stress.
Do not install or store the dishwasher where it will be exposed to temperatures below freezing or
exposed to the weather.
Do not use an extension cord or portable electrical outlet device (eg multi-socket outlet box) to
connect the dishwasher to the power supply.
This appliance is intended to be used in household and similar applications such as
- staff kitchen areas in shops, offices and other working environments;
-farm houses;
-by clients in hotels, motels and other residential environments;
-bed and breakfast type environments.
Maintenance
Do not repair or replace any part of the dishwasher or attempt any servicing unless specifically
recommended in this user guide. We recommend that you call a Fisher & Paykel Authorised
Service Agent.
Keep the floor around your dishwasher clean and dry to reduce the possibility of slipping.
Keep the area around and underneath your dishwasher free from the accumulation of
combustible materials, such as lint, paper, rags and chemicals.
When cleaning the underside of the filter, take care on the sharp outer edge to avoid the risk of
cut type injuries.
If the dishwasher is not operating properly or maintenance must be performed, disconnect the
dishwasher from the power supply.

Installation instructions
Before you start
These instructions are intended as a guide only. It is the responsibility of the plumber and
electrician to ensure that each installation complies with the Government and local government
by-laws.
Check packaging and dishwasher immediately for signs of transport damage. If the appliance
is damaged, do not put into use but contact your Fisher & Paykel Authorised Service Centre or
dealer.
The dishwasher must not be connected to the electrical supply while installation is being carried
out. Ensure all domestic wiring is properly earthed.
Never lift from the door handle.
Do not lift from the decorative panel on the front of the dishwasher. Always be careful with the
hoses and the power cord at the back of the dishwasher. Careful handling will prevent damage
and malfunction from squashing, kinking or cuts.
The dishwasher should not be connected to a hot water system where the temperature exceeds
60ºC, or where there is no temperature control, (eg wetback system) unless the system is fitted
with a suitable tempering valve.
The dishwasher must not be connected to an under-sink high-pressure “push through” type hot
water system, as damage to the system will result.
Ensure the bare wood surrounding the dishwasher is sealed with an oil-based paint or moistureproof polyurethane to prevent possible steam damage.
While installing a dishwasher, check the drain hose is not restricted or kinked.
Levelling
Before sliding the dishwasher into position, adjust the feet to ensure that the dishwasher is
level at the required height. Check that the door opens and closes freely without resistance to
adjacent cabinetry. If necessary, adjust the levelling feet slightly. The dishwasher should not be
inclined more than 2º. If the dishwasher is level, it will help to ensure optimum performance.

Plumbing
Drainage
The recommended method of installation is shown in the diagrams below. These methods are
designed to eliminate problems that occur with combined sink – dishwasher waste systems.
The standpipe must have a minimum diameter of 38 mm and stand 750 mm above the floor. A
drain hose support is provided to hold the drain hose in place in the standpipe (see diagrams 1
and 2). It is not recommended that the drain hose or drain pipe be connected directly to a waste
disposal unit (see diagram 2).
When connecting the drain hose to a sink trap with a drain hose spigot, it is important that the
drain hose is supported to the height of the bench (see diagram 3). Ensure the drain spigot has
a minimum hole size of 15 mm and that it has been drilled out.

Installation instructions
Water inlet connections
The dishwasher has a single valve water connection. We recommend a cold water connection to
give the best wash performance and energy efficiency.
Important!
The appliance should be connected to the water main using a new hose set. Old hose sets should not be
used. If the water inlet hose is not long enough to make a proper connection, it must be
replaced. This hose can be purchased from a Fisher & Paykel dealer or authorised service centre.
Water supply
The dishwasher inlet hose must be connected to an accessible water tap. The water supply to
the dishwasher should be through a 3/4” bsp connector, making sure it is tightly fastened. The
hose coupling must be tightened a further half turn after seal contact.
If the water pipes have not been used for an extended period of time, let the water run to make
sure that the water is clear and free of impurities. If this precaution is not taken, there is a risk
the water inlet will get blocked and damage the appliance.
Anti-flood protection
This mechanism will stop the water flowing in the event of a damaged hose or a leak within the
machine.
Positioning your dishwasher
Position the appliance in the desired location. The water inlet and drain hoses can be positioned
to the right or left to assist proper installation.
Underbench or built-in appliances should be installed under a continuous surface, which is
attached to adjacent cupboards, in order to ensure that the appliance is stable.
The dishwasher may be installed with the top panel removed.
Electrical Connection
Ensure the voltage and frequency values for the current in your home correspond to those
on the rating plate (located on the stainless steel inner door of your dishwasher), and that the
electrical system is correct for the maximum voltage on the rating plate. Insert the plug into an
electrical socket which is earthed properly (the earthing of the appliance is a safety requirement
mandated by law).
Installation instructions
7
If the electrical socket to which the appliance must be connected is not appropriate for the plug,
replace the whole cable rather than using adaptors, as adaptors could cause overheating and
burns.
Important!
The dishwasher plug must be accessible even when the appliance is installed as a built-in unit so that
maintenance can be done safely.
If a fault occurs
If the dishwasher malfunctions, turn off the water supply to the appliance and disconnect the
plug from the wall socket. Refer to the ‘Fault codes’ and ‘Troubleshooting’ sections. If you cannot
solve the problem, contact a Fisher & Paykel Authorised Service Centre.

The combination of high temperatures and dishwasher detergent may cause damage to some
items if they are washed in your dishwasher. Remember, if in doubt about any items to be
washed in the dishwasher, follow the instructions from the manufacturer of the items, or wash
them by hand.
Cutlery and silverware
All cutlery and silverware should be rinsed immediately after use to prevent tarnishing caused
by some foods. The Rinse wash programme is useful for this. Silver items should not come into
contact with stainless steel, for example other cutlery. Mixing these items can cause staining.
Remove silver cutlery from the dishwasher and hand dry it immediately after the programme has
finished.
Aluminium
Aluminium can be dulled by dishwasher detergent. The degree of change depends on the
quality of the product.
Other metals
Iron and cast iron items can rust and stain other items. Copper, pewter and brass tend to stain.
Woodware
Wooden items are generally sensitive to heat and water. Regular use in the dishwasher may
cause deterioration over time. If in doubt, wash by hand.
Glassware
Most everyday glassware is dishwasher safe. Crystal, very fine and antique glassware may etch
(become opaque). You may prefer to wash these items by hand.
Plastic
Some plastic may change shape or colour with hot water. Check the manufacturer’s instructions
about washing plastic items. Washable plastic items should be weighed down so they do not flip
over and fill with water, or fall through the basket during the wash.
Decorated items
Most modern china patterns are dishwasher safe. Antique items, those with a pattern painted
over the glaze or gold rims, or hand painted china may be more sensitive to machine washing. If
in doubt, wash these items by hand.
Glued items
Certain adhesives are softened or dissolved by machine washing. If in doubt, wash glued items
by hand.
Never put highly absorbent materials, such as sponges and towels in your dishwasher.
Do not put dishes or cutlery that have been soiled by tobacco ash, wax, lubricating grease or
paint in your dishwasher.

Loading
19
Take care when loading dishes to ensure that the water will reach all areas, particularly the
cup racks. If there are any items blocking the spray arms’ paths or the wash water, then the
performance will be ineffective.
Before placing the dishes in the dishwasher, remove larger food particles to prevent the filter
from becoming clogged.
If the pots and pans have baked-on food residue that is extremely hard to remove, we
recommend that they are soaked before being washed. This will eliminate the need for extra
wash cycles.
How to load the lower rack
In some models, the tines on the lower rack can be folded down so large items like pots and
pans can be placed flat on the basket.
We recommend that you place the most difficult-to-clean items on the lower rack: pots, pans,
lids, serving dishes and bowls.
Place serving dishes and lids on the sides of the racks to avoid blocking the rotation of the top
spray arm.
The cutlery basket can be halved as shown in
Fig. 5, so that you can use just one section when
the cutlery load is light. This also makes space for
additional pots and pans.
Place cutlery in the cutlery basket with the
handles at the bottom. If you are using the antinesting grids, place spoons individually into
the appropriate slots. Place long utensils in the
horizontal position at the front of the upper rack.
Place knives and other utensils with sharp points
in the basket with their points down, or in a
horizontal position.

How to load the upper rack
The upper rack is designed to hold items like glasses, cups, saucers, plates, small bowls and
shallow pans. Position these items so that they cannot be moved during the wash.
Upper rack adjustment for DW60CR models
The upper rack can be adjusted for height by using the rollers located on both sides of the rack
(see below).
Adjusting the upper rack to a higher level will give you more space to accommodate taller items
in the lower rack.

Dishwasher detergents are strongly alkaline and can be dangerous if swallowed.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Keep children and infirm persons away from the dishwasher when the door is open.
Check that the detergent receptacle is empty after the completion of the wash programme – failure to do so
could result in poisoning.

Rinse aid
We highly recommend the regular use of liquid rinse aid to give the best drying results. Rinse
aid gives a streak-free, sparkling clean look to glass and chinaware. In addition it prevents metal
from tarnishing. The rinse aid dispenser is located on the inside panel of the door.

Open the dispenser by turning the cap in an anticlockwise
direction.
Pour the rinse aid into the dispenser, making sure not to
overfill.
Take care not to spill rinse aid into the dishwasher. Any spills
must be wiped up to prevent excess foaming. Failure to wipe
up rinse aid spills may result in a service call, which will not
be covered by warranty.
Fit the cap back in the original position.
Fig. 8 Opening the rinse aid dispenser
How much rinse aid to use
The dose regulator may need to be adjusted to suit your
water conditions. Regulate the amount of rinse aid by turning
the dose regulator, using a screwdriver. The dose regulator is
located underneath the rinse aid cap.
There are six dosage settings; the lowest setting is ‘1’ and
the highest setting is ‘6’. The normal dosage is setting ‘4’. If
there is excessive foaming at the end of the wash, reduce the
setting. If dishes are wet or streaky after drying, increase the
setting.
Fig. 9 Adjusting the dose regulator
Important!
If you are using dishwasher tablets that contain rinse aid,
set the dose regulator to the lowest setting (1).
Too much rinse aid can lead to excessive foaming and
may even damage the dishwasher.
Rinse aid indicator light
When the rinse aid level becomes low, the Rinse aid indicator
will light up to remind you to refill the rinse aid. The Rinse aid
indicator light can be found on the detergent dispenser cover
for all models, and on the exterior control panel
for DW60CD models.

Care and cleaning
23
After each wash, turn off the water supply to the dishwasher and leave the door ajar 30°, so that
moisture and odours are not trapped inside.
Important!
The door should not be left in the fully open position as this could present a tripping hazard.
Before cleaning or performing maintenance, always remove the power plug from the wall socket.
Cleaning the outer surfaces
From time to time the wash programme indicator panel and its surrounds need to be cleaned to
remove food particles, and any spillages. We recommend wiping these areas with a clean, soft
damp cloth, and drying them with a clean lint-free cloth.
Important!
We do not recommend the use of the following cleaning aids on your dishwasher, as they may damage the
surfaces:
Plastic or stainless steel scouring pads.
Abrasive, solvent house hold cleaners.
Hand washing liquids or soaps.
Laundry detergents or disinfectants.
Cleaning the door seals
If food is trapped in the seals, then it can cause odours. Clean the seals periodically with a clean
damp cloth to prevent this from happening.
Holiday time
If your dishwasher is not going to be used for some time, we recommend you ensure the baskets
are empty. Leave the inside of the dishwasher clean. Leave the door ajar to allow air to circulate.
Turn off both the power and water supply to your dishwasher.
24
Care and cleaning
Cleaning the drain filters and spray arms
Regular inspection and maintenance of your dishwasher helps
to prevent problems from occurring. You should carefully
inspect your dishwasher regularly. Check that no grease or
scale has accumulated on the inside of your dishwasher. If
you discover any deposits, clean them thoroughly with warm
water on a soft, lint-free cloth.
Fig. 11 Removing the micro-filter (Filter A)
Filters
The filters A and B prevent larger particles of food in
the water from reaching the pump. These particles may
occasionally block the filters. We recommend that the drain
filter is cleaned whenever there is evidence of food particles.
When the dishwasher has finished washing, check the filters
for particles of food and, if required, clean.
After removing the coarse micro-filter (filter A), the filter unit
(filter B) can be removed. Remove any particles of food and
rinse the filters under running water.
Replace the filter unit (B) and then the coarse micro-filter (A). Fig. 12 Removing the filter unit (Filter B)
Ensure that the micro-filter is tightened firmly.
Spray arms
Lime and remnants of food in the wash water can block the
nozzles in the spray arms and the arm mountings.
The spray arms and mountings may need cleaning about
once a month in normal use or more often should the need
arise:
Inspect the nozzles in the spray arms for blocked holes.
If necessary, unscrew the lower arm (C) and lift it off. Unscrew
the upper spray arm (D).
Clean both spray arms under running water.
Refit the spray arms. Ensure that the lower spray arm is locked
into place and the upper one is screwed tightly.
Important !
The dishwasher must be used with the filter plate, drain filter and
spray arms correctly in place. Where there is broken crockery or
glass in the dishwasher, carefully and immediately remove it to
prevent damage.
