Section 1. Installation
• Position the appliance in a dry, well ventilated room with a solid level floor. The
room temperature must not fall below +5° or rise above +35°.
• This appliance is fitted with adjustable feet so that you can ensure it is sitting
level. Adjust the feet by turning left or right until the appliance is level.
• The adjustable feet must never be removed.
• Plug the 3pin moulded plug into a nearby 13amp plug socket. Always make
sure that you can easily gain access to switch the power on or off at the plug
• N.B. This appliance must be earthed!
• If you have installed this appliance underneath a work surface the plug socket
should have a fused switch located above the work surface so that you can
easily switch the appliance on or off.
You are advised to turn the power off at the plugsocket when you have
finished using your appliance.
Before using the appliance for the first time, you must set the water softener,
add salt, add rinse aid and add detergent.
Your plumber will connect the water hose (supplied) to the water inlet
connection at the rear of the appliance and to an adjacent cold water supply. It
is your responsibility to ensure that the supplied washers have been used and
that both connections are water tight.
Ensure water pressure is within the range specified on the Rating Label. Your
plumber will connect the water drain pipe to an adjacent sink (see Pic.1 below)
Ensure that the water hose and water drain pipe are not kinked when the
appliance is pushed into place. If either of these pipes is kinked the appliance
will not operate correctly.
Ensure that the appliance is not standing on the power cable or hoses.
Do not use the water inlet hose of your old machine. Use the new water inlet
hose and connect the hose directly to the water inlet tap. The pressure
supplied by the tap should be a minimum of 0.03 Mpa and at a maximum of 1
Mpa. If the water pressure is above 1 Mpa, a pressure relief valve should be
After the connections are made, the tap should be turned on fully and checked
that it is water tight. You should always turn off the water inlet tap after a wash
programme is finished.
Note: An Aquastop water hose is used in some models. In such
circumstances, heavy tension will exist. Do not cut the Aquastop water hose
and do not let it get folded or twisted.
Water Outlet Hose
The water drain hose can be connected either directly to the water
drain hole or to the sink outlet spigot using a special bent pipe (if
available). The hose connection should be at a minimum of 50cm and
at a maximum of 110 cm from the floor.
Please note that a drain hose longer than 4m must not be used as it
may prevent the appliance from washing correctly.

Ensure that the appliance is sited well away from other heat sources, i.e. open
fires, boilers etc and in a dry, well ventilated room. The temperature must not
fall below +5° or rise above +35°.
• Do not sit on the appliance or stand on the open door – the appliance could tip

Section 3. Operating the Appliance
Before Operating the Appliance
3.1.1. Adding Salt
Remove the lower basket and then unscrew the salt container cap (1).
Add water and approximately 1kg of specialist dishwasher salt to the
container until almost overflowing. N.B. It is normal for a small amount
of water to come out of the container whilst filling it with salt. Note: Fill
the salt compartment with water at first use only.
Now replace the screw cap correctly and ensure that it is tight. If not,
salt may leak into the dishwasher chamber which can be detrimental
to the stainless steel interior. This is not covered by the manufacturers
After adding salt you should run a programme immediately to activate
the water softener and flush away any salt spilled into the machine.
If salt is low the indicator light will show on the control panel.
3.1.2. Adding Rinse Aid
Remove the Rinse Aid Filler Cap (1).
Add Rinse Aid until the rinse aid level indicator becomes dark (2).
Replace the Filler Cap (3).
If the rinse aid level is sufficient the indicator light will be dark on the
control panel (2B). If more rinse aid is required the indicator will be
light (2A).
3.1.3. Adding Detergent
Use specialist dishwasher detergent powder or dishwasher tablets in
this appliance. However, please note that tablets do not always dissolve
fully during shorter wash programmes, so you are advised to operate
your appliance on a longer wash programme if using tablets.
In addition, the use of tablets may result in spots appearing on dishes
and glasses.
Push the latch to open the detergent container as shown in image 1. The
detergent pod has “level” lines inside to help measure the amount of
detergent you use. The pod can take a total of 40cm³ of detergent. If your
dishes are heavily soiled pour 25cm³ of detergent into the
larger compartment (b), if they are less soiled use only 15cm³.
If the programme selected has a pre-wash cycle you should add 5cm³
of detergent to the pre-wash compartment (a).
If using combined detergents, make sure to check the specifications
on the product to ensure that it is appropriate for the wash programme,
your machine and the level of hardness of the mains water.
3.1.4. Combined Detergent – Recommended Usage
If you are using a combined detergent, add a rinse aid agent to your machine
and switch the rinse agent setting to its lowest position (1) and activate the
tablet detergent button in order to obtain better results. Depending on the
water hardness you may need to fill the salt container with salt.
We do not recommended using 3 in 1 tablets on fast or rapid programmes
as the tablet may not fully dissolve. For these programs we suggest using
normal dishwasher powder.

4.2. Cleaning the Door
Periodically clean the inner stainless steel lining of the door with a warm
damp cloth. Pay particular attention to the edges so that food deposits
do not build up, causing the door seal to fail. Clean the door seal with
warm soapy water.
Never use abrasive cleaners or polishes on the stainless steel!
4.3. Cleaning the Spray Arms
Small particles of food will over time get into the spray arms and cause
blockages. Periodically remove the spray arms (as shown below) and
wash them in warm soapy water. Blocked spray arms are not covered
under the Guarantee!
To remove the lower spray arm
pull it upwards, so that the upper
spray arm nut can be removed by
turning the nut to the left.

4.4. Daily Maintenance
Follow these useful tips to ensure your dishwasher stays in tip-top
working order:
• Always switch off the power supply at the socket when your dishwasher
is not in use.

Clean the door edges and door seal as described in 4.2. above.
Add salt to your appliance when prompted by the salt light on the control
panel. Always run a programme after to remove any spilled salt.
Add rinse aid to your appliance when prompted by the rinse aid light on
the control panel.
Only use Dishwasher salt, Dishwasher detergent and Dishwasher rinse
aid in your dishwasher.
Never use abrasive cleaners to clean your appliance.
When the appliance is not in use, leave the door slightly ajar in order to
avoid moisture and odours building up inside. However, this may not be
advisable if small children have unsupervised access to the area where
