FIRST TIME USE
SALT, RINSE AID AND DETERGENT
ADVICE REGARDING THE FIRST TIME USE
FILLING THE RINSE AID DISPENSER
After installation, remove the stoppers from the racks and the retaining
elastic elements from the upper rack.
Rinse aid makes dish DRYING easier. The rinse aid dispenser A should
in the control
be filled when the RINSE AID REFILL indicator light
panel is lit.
FILLING THE SALT RESERVOIR
The use of salt prevents the formation of LIMESCALE on the dishes and
on the machine’s functional components.
• It is important that the salt reservoir be never empty.
• It is important to set the water hardness.
The salt reservoir is located in the lower part of the dishwasher (see
PROGRAMS DESCRIPTION) and should be filled when the SALT REFILL
in the control panel is lit.
indicator light
1.Remove the lower rack and unscrew the
reservoir cap (anticlockwise).
2.Position the funnel (see figure) and fill the salt
reservoir right up to its edge (approximately 1 kg);
it is not unusual for a little water to leak out.
3.Remove the funnel and wipe any salt residue
away from the opening.
Make sure the cap is screwed on tightly, so that no detergent can get
into the container during the wash program (this could damage the
water softener beyond repair).
Whenever you need to add salt, we recommend carrying out the
procedure before the washing cycle is started.
SETTING THE WATER HARDNESS
To allow the water softener to work in a perfect way, it is essential that
the water hardness setting is based on the actual water hardness in
your house. This information can be obtained from your local water
supplier.
The factory setting is for average (3) water hardness.
• Switch on the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF button.
• Switch off the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF button.
• Hold down button START/PAUSE for 5 seconds, until you hear a
beep.
• Switch on the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF button.
• The current selection level number and the salt indicator light both flash.
• Press button P to select the desired hardness level (see WATER
HARDNESS TABLE).

ADVICE AND TIPS
TIPS
UNSUITABLE CROCKERY
Before loading the baskets, remove all food residues from the crockery
and empty the glasses. You do not need to rinse beforehand under
running water.
Arrange the crockery so that it is held in place firmly and does not tip
over; and arrange the containers with the openings facing downwards
and the concave/convex parts placed obliquely, thus allowing the
water to reach every surface and flow freely.
Warning: lids, handles, trays and frying pans do not prevent the
sprayer arms from rotating.
Place any small items in the cutlery basket.
Very soiled dishes and pans should be placed in the lower basket
because in this sector the water sprays are stronger and allow a higher
washing performance.
After loading the appliance, make sure that the sprayer arms can rotate
freely.
•
•
HYGIENE
Wooden crockery and cutlery.
Delicate decorated glasses, artistic handicraft and antique
crockery. Their decorations are not resistant.
• Parts in synthetic material which do not withstand high
temperatures.
• Copper and tin crockery.
• Crockery soiled with ash, wax, lubricating grease or ink.
The colours of glass decorations and aluminium/silver pieces can
change and fade during the washing process. Some types of glass (e.g.
crystal objects) can become opaque after a number of wash cycles too.
DAMAGE TO GLASS AND CROCKERY
•
•
•
Only use glasses and porcelain guaranteed by the manufacturer as
dishwasher safe.
Use a delicate detergent suitable for crockery
Collect glasses and cutlery from the dishwasher as soon as the
wash cycle is over.
To avoid odour and sediment which can be accumulated in the
dishwasher please run a high temperature program at least one a
month. Use a tea spoon of detergent and run it without the loading to
clean your appliance.

LOADING THE RACKS
UPPER RACK
LOWER RACK
Load delicate and light dishes:
glasses, cups, saucers, low salad
bowls.
The upper rack has tip-up
supports which can be used in a
vertical position when arranging
tea/ dessert saucers or in a lower
position to load bowls and food
containers.
For pots, lids, plates, salad bowls, cutlery etc. Large plates and lids should
ideally be placed at the sides to avoid interferences with the spray arm.
The lower rack has tip-up supports which can be used in a vertical
position when arranging plates or in a horizontal position (lower) to
load pans and salad bowls easily.
(loading example for the upper rack)
ADJUSTING THE HEIGHT OF THE UPPER RACK
The height of the upper rack can be adjusted: high position to place
bulky crockery in the lower basket and low position to make the most
of the tip-up supports by creating more space upwards and avoid
collision with the items loaded into lower rack.
The upper rack is equipped with a Upper
Rack height adjuster (see figure), without
pressing the levers, lift it up by simply
holding the rack sides, as soon as the rack
is stable in its upper position.
To restore to the lower position, press the
levers A at the sides of the rack and move
the basket downwards.
We strongly recommend that you do
not adjust the height of the rack when it
is loaded.
NEVER raise or lower the basket on one side only.
FOLDABLE FLAPS WITH ADJUSTABLE POSITION
The side foldable flaps can be positioned at
three different heights to optimize the
arrangement of crockery inside the rack.
Wine glasses can be placed safely in the
foldable flaps by inserting the stem of each
glass into the corresponding slots.
For optimum drying results incline the
foldable flaps more. To change the
inclination, pull up the foldable flap, slide it
slightly and position it as you wish.
(loading example for the lower rack)
POWER CLEAN IN LOWER RACK
Power Clean® uses the special water
jets in the rear of cavity to wash more
intensively the high dirty items.
Placing the pots/casseroles faced to
the Power Clean® component please
activate the POWER CLEAN on the
panel.
The lower rack has a Space Zone, a special pull-out support in the rear
of the rack that can be used to support frying pans or baking pans in
upright position, thus taking up less space.
How to use Power Clean®:
1. Adjust the Power Clean®
area (G) folding down the
rear plate holders to load
pots.
2. Load pots and casseroles
inclined vertically in
Power Clean® area. Pots
have to be inclined
towards the power water
jets.
CUTLERY BASKET
The modular basket can slide to optimise the space inside the lower
rack. It is equipped with top grilles for improved cutlery arrangement.
Knives and other utensils with sharp edges must be placed in the
cutlery basket with the points facing downwards or they must be
positioned horizontally in the tip-up compartments on the upper
rack.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
CLEANING THE FILTER ASSEMBLY
CLEANING THE SPRAY ARMS
Regularly clean the filter assembly so that the filters do not clog and
that the waste water flows away correctly.
The filter assembly consists of three filters which remove food residues
from the washing water and then recirculate the water: to obtain the
best washing results, you need to keep them clean.
The dishwasher must not be used without filters or if the filter is
loose.
After several washes, check the filter assembly and if necessary clean it
thoroughly under running water, using a non-metallic brush and
following the instructions below:
1. Turn the cylindrical filter A in an anti-clockwise direction and pull it
out (Fig 1).
2. Remove the cup filter B by exerting a slight pressure on the side
flaps (Fig 2).
3. Slide out the stainless-steel plate filter C (Fig 3).
4. Inspect the trap and remove any food residues.
NEVER REMOVE the wash-cycle pump protection (black detail) (Fig 4).
On occasions, food residue may become encrusted onto the spray arms
and block the holes used to spray the water. It is therefore
recommended that you check the arms from time to time and clean
them with a small non-metallic brush.
1
To remove the upper spray arm, turn the plastic locking ring in an anticlockwise direction. The upper spray arm should be replaced so that
the side with the greater number of holes is facing upwards.

B
A
A
The lower spray arm may be removed by pulling it upwards.
CLEANING THE WATER INLET HOSE
If the water hoses are new or have not been used for an extended
period of time, let the water run to make sure it is clear and free of
impurities before performing the necessary connections. If this
precaution is not taken, the water inlet could become blocked and
damage the dishwasher.
C

After cleaning the filters, re-place the filter assembly and fix it in
position correctly; this is essential for maintaining the efficient
operation of the dishwasher.
