INSTRUCTIONS
INTRODUCTION
Please read this user manual and particularly the
safety instructions completely and carefully. They
will save you time and effort and help to ensure
optimum dishwasher performance.

precautions, including the following:
Be sure to observe all listed warnings and cautions.
Look particularly for the icons with exclamation
marks inside. The information icon will also provide
important references.

situation which, if not avoided, may
result in damage to the dishwasher,
the table-ware, the equipment or the
environment.
1
=
Use the dishwasher only for its intended purpose
as described in this user manual. This appliance
is intended for normal household use only.
=
The manufacturer disclaims responsibility
for damage or injury caused by improper use
of this appliance.
=
The information in this user manual must be
followed to minimize the risk of fire or explosion
and to prevent property damage, personal injury
or loss of life.
=
Do not operate your dishwasher unless all the
enclosure panels are properly in place.
=
Do not tamper with the controls.
=
Do not abuse, sit on, stand in or on the door or
dish rack of the dishwasher.
=
The cup racks are designed to support cups,
glasses and kitchen utensils. When the cup
racks are in the dishwasher do not lean on or
use the cup racks to support your body weight.
=
To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children
to play in, on or near the dishwasher.
=
Use only detergents or rinse aids recommended
for use in a household dishwasher and keep
them in a dry place out of the reach of children.
Check that the detergent dispenser is empty
after the completion of each wash program.
=
Dishwasher detergents are alkaline. They can
be dangerous if inhaled or swallowed. Avoid
contact with skin and eyes and keep children
and infirm persons away from the dishwasher
when the door is opened. Consult a doctor
immediately if detergent has been swallowed or
inhaled.
=
Do not drink water from the dishwasher! Harmful
residues could be present.
=
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 period, 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
gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open
flame during this time.
=
Do not store or use flammable liquids or vapors
in the area of the dishwasher.
=
Do not install or store the dishwasher where it
can be exposed to below freezing temperatures
or exposed to weather.
=
When loading items to be washed, position sharp
items so that they are not likely to damage the
door seal and load sharp knives with the handles
up to reduce the risk of cut-type injuries.
=
Dishwasher must be secured to adjacent
cabinetry using the brackets provided. Failure
to do this may cause damage to property or
bodily injury.
=
Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked
“dishwasher safe” or the equivalent. For plastic
items not so marked, check the manufacturer’s
recommendations.
=
=
If a malfunction occurs, switch off the appliance
and turn off the water supply to the dishwasher.
=
Before cleaning or carrying out maintenance,
switch off the appliance, disconnect the power
plug and turn off the water supply.
Connect to a properly rated, protected and sized
power supply circuit to avoid electrical overload.
The dishwasher is designed for an electrical
supply of 120 V (volts), 60 Hz (hertz), AC,
connected to a dishwasher-dedicated, properly
grounded electrical circuit with a fuse or breakers
rated for 15 amperes. Electrical supply
conductors shall be a minimum of # 14 AWG
copper wire rated at 75 °C (167 °F) or higher.
These requirements must be met to prevent
injury and machine damage. Consult a qualified
electrician if in doubt.
=
Repairs and technical modifications must be
carried out exclusively by a qualified technician.
=
=
If the dishwasher is not in use for an extended
period of time (i.e. vacation home), we
recommend you check that the baskets are
empty, leave the inside of the dishwasher clean,
leave the door cracked open to allow air to
circulate and turn off both the power and water
supply to the dishwasher.
Do not use any extension cord or portable outlet
device to connect the dishwasher to a power
supply.

deteriorate over time if put in the dishwasher.
Plastics may lose their shape or color with hot
water, please follow the instructions of plastic
manufacturers. Be sure that plastic items are

Glued dishes or cutlery are not suitable for
machine washing since certain adhesives may
get soft or dissolve with hot water.
Aluminum may fade over time. Minerals in water
and detergent may cause the aluminum to darken
or spot.
Sterling silver articles should not be washed in
the dishwasher because they tend to discolor
and become dull by dishwasher detergent.
Silverware and stainless steel items should not
be in contact with each other. Mixing these items
can cause staining. Remove and hand dry these
items immediately when the program ends.
Decorated glasses, porcelain, fine china and
china with gold rims are sensitive to machine
washing. They may lose their patterns and
colors over time.
Crystal and very fine glassware may become
opaque (etch) losing their shine over time. You
may prefer to wash them by hand.
Do not wash sponges or dish cloths in
dishwasher.
Do not wash art and craft articles in dishwasher.
Disposable plastics and disposable aluminum

concerning items to be washed in the dishwasher,
follow the instructions from the manufacturer of the
items, or wash the items by hand.

The detergent container holds a total of 40 ml
/ 8 tsp of detergent 1.
Marking lines on the inside of the detergent
container aid in providing the correct amount of
detergent. When the dishwasher is fully loaded
and the dishes are very dirty, we recommend
filling the detergent container up to the 25 ml /
5 tsp mark. When the dishes are less dirty, it is
generally sufficient to fill the detergent up to the
15 ml / 3 tsp mark.
The detergent amounts for the individual cleaning
programs are shown in the "Quick Reference
Guide - Program Table".
Fill amounts given are for standard powder
detergent. Amounts may vary if you use liquid
