Important Safety Instructions
WARNING
When using your dishwasher, follow basic safety precautions, including the following:
ൺ Please read the installation and operating instructions carefully before using the dishwasher for the
first time.
ൺ These instructions contain very important information with regard to installation, use and maintenance
of your dishwasher.
ൺ The manufacturer will not be responsible for problems caused by ignoring these safety and cautionary
instructions.
ൺ This dishwasher is designed for normal household use.
ൺ Do not use the dishwasher for industrial and commercial use, or any other purpose.
ൺ This dishwasher must be plugged directly into a grounded electrical outlet (Do not use an extension cable
or cord.)
ൺ Only suitable household utensils should be placed in the dishwasher. (Please avoid utensils that are
not heat-resistant, are decorated metal, etc.)
ൺ Keep detergents away from children.
ൺ If your hot water temperature in your pipes exceeds 149˚F adjust the your home’s water heater setting. If
your hot water temperature exceeds 149˚F, the dishwasher must be connected to a cold water source.
ൺ Do not use any kinds of solvents in your dishwasher. They may cause an explosion or fire.
ൺ Do not spray water into the appliance. This may cause the failure of electrical parts or electric shock.
ൺ Do not push down or sit on the door when the door is opened. This may cause deformation of the door
or a risk of personal injury.
ൺ Do not use dishwasher detergent for hand washing. Dishwasher detergent should be used for
dishwashers only.
ൺ If the power supply cord is damaged, it must been replaced by a technician, service agent or a
similarly qualified person.
ൺ This appliance should be positioned so that the plug is accessible.
ൺ The appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision.
ൺ Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
ൺ Dishwasher detergents are strongly alkaline. They can be extremely dangerous if swallowed. Avoid
contact with skin and eyes and keep children away from the dishwasher when the door is open.
Check that the detergent receptacle is empty after completion of the wash cycle.
ൺ Connect the dishwasher to your water source using new hoses. Old hoses should not be re-used.
WARNING
Instructions below advise about a risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.
Electrical Instructions:
An electrical supply of 120 volts AC only, 60Hz is required. Make sure that a suitable electrical outlet is located
close to the dishwasher. For your personal safety, the appliance must be grounded.

Installation Instructions
Remove All Packing Materials Carefully
1.
The water inlet hose from the machine terminates in a ¾” female connector. Connect the hose to ¾” male
connector. We suggest that your water outlet have a stopcock close by in the pipe. It is best to connect the
machine to a hot water supply, but a cold water supply will also suffice. Connect the straight connector from
the inlet hose to the water supply securely. Connect the other end (bent connector) to the water inlet valve
at the back of the dishwasher cabinet. Do not over-tighten the hose connections – this may damage the
threads.
Note: If you so desire, you may connect the water inlet hose on to the kitchen sink tap. Connect the water
supply hose to a threaded ¾” quick-connect adapter and make sure that it is fastened tightly in place.
2.
Prepare the drain hose so that it is hooked at the end furthest from the dishwasher. Use the supplied
plastic U-bend fitting provided for this purpose. The end of this should be dropped into a drainage
standpipe, the maximum height of which should be no more than 6” above the base of the dishwasher. To
allow for an air gap around the end of the drain hose, the diameter of the standpipe should be at least 30
mm. Connect the other end of the drain hose (L shaped) to the drain port connection at the back of the
dishwasher cabinet. Tighten the drain hose end on to the drain port using the metal clip included in the
package.
Note: You may also drain this dishwasher into a sink- just make sure that the drain line is secure- so that
water does not leak onto your counter or floor.

3. Turn on the water supply and check for leaks. If leaks are located, immediately shut off the water supply
and check the hose connections. Tighten the connections if necessary.
4. If for any reason you are unable to stop the leak yourself please seek advice from a qualified plumber.
5. Make sure there is an electrical outlet within easy reach of the machine. The power cord is about 83” long.
6. The dishwasher must be installed on a solid, level surface.
7. To level the dishwasher, adjust the 4 leveling legs (feet) under the dishwasher. Unscrew them to make
them longer. Screw them in tighter to make them shorter.
Water Pressure
The machine can be used with a hot water supply or cold water supply. A hot water supply is preferred.
For best operating results, incoming water pressure should be between 0.03ᨺ1Mpa. The incoming water
supply for the dishwasher is monitored by a ‘low water pressure switch’, so if the water pressure is too low (or
if there is no water supplied to the machine), the dishwasher will stop.
For Best Results:
3
Your dishwasher cleans by spraying a mixture of hot clean water and detergent (under pressure) against the
soiled surface of dishes. The water is pumped through a rotating spray arm, drained through a filter removing
food and soiled particles and then pumped back through the spray arm.
Soiled water is pumped out and replaced with clean water at the end of each cycle . For best cleaning results,
the water temperature must be at least 131˚F. To prevent dishwasher damage, the temperature of the
incoming water supply should not exceed 149˚F.
NOTE: “Hard water” will adversely affect the wash performance of your dishwasher. Hard water will also
contribute to “lime” (white filmy substance) deposits and/or “scaling” on the stainless steel surface of the
dishwasher tub and the heater element (located in the sump underneath the removable filter screen). To
minimize the above conditions, we recommend periodically rinsing the inside of the dishwasher (while empty)
with 1 cup of white vinegar (at least once a week).
Disconnecting the Dishwasher
ൺ Turn off the water supply at the stopcock.
ൺ Disconnect the power supply cord.
ൺ Disconnect the inlet hose assembly from the water supply. When the dishwasher is not in use, you can
store the hose on the hang bracket located on the rear wall of the dishwasher cabinet.
ൺ Appliances that are being thrown away should be made unusable. Pull off the plug and make the door lock
and latch unusable
! Important!
Once you open the water supply line, (even if it is closed immediately thereafter) the water inlet hose will be
pressurized. This means there may be some water splashed out when the hose is disconnected. Take the
necessary precautions.
! Caution!
Do not let children disconnect (or use, unsupervised) the dishwasher. Close supervision of children is always
important around appliances.

ൺ 4 Forks
ൺ 4 Knives
ൺ 4 Dessert Spoons
ൺ 2 Serving Spoons
ൺ 1 Serving Fork
ൺ 1 Gravy ladle
The dishwasher is designed to receive a standard 4 piece plate setting consisting of the above.
NOTE: for ease of loading/unloading large size dinner plates from the dish rack it may be necessary to
(temporarily) remove the cutlery basket. When loading/unloading is complete, return the cutlery basket to its
original position.
Preparing Your Dishes for Washing
Scrub off all solid food particles from the dishes.
ൺ Remove excessive quantities of oil or grease.
ൺ Empty any liquids from glasses and cups.
ൺ NOTE: Dishes with dried-on foods are more difficult to wash and may not come clean in a normal wash
cycle.
ൺ Arrange all items with recessed or curved sections on a slant to drain water away.
When loading items to be washed:
ൺ Load sharp items so that they are not likely to damage the door seal.
ൺ Load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce the risk of cut-type injuries
ൺ Do not load plastic items unless they are “dishwasher safe”.
5
ൺ Do not load glasses over the dish rack pins. Glasses loaded over dish rack pins are not properly
supported and are likely to get damaged.
ൺ Items with wooden or bone handles and items joined together with glue are unsuitable as they cannot
resist hot water.
ൺ Do not touch the heating element during or immediately after use.
ൺ Do not operate your dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are properly in place.
ൺ Do not tamper with the controls.
ൺ Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the open door or dish-rack of the dishwasher. The machine may topple
over.
ൺ Protect the cables and hoses from high temperatures.
ൺ To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to operate or play with the dishwasher.
Detergent and Rinse Aid Use
The indention for the detergent
Use only detergent specifically made for use
in dishwashers, as other types can cause
over-sudsing. If your detergent is old and/or
lumpy, throw it away. Old detergent loses its
washing power. Lumpy detergent won’t
dissolve.
Please put the detergent in the indention on
the inner side of the door.
How much detergent to use
That depends if your water is ‘hard’ or ‘soft’. Generally, hard water requires more detergent to get dishes
clean while soft water requires less detergent.The recessed detergent indention located on the inside door
panel will hold approximately 12g of detergent. Follow the detergent manufacturer’s guidelines for appropriate
detergent quantity.
Using a Rinse Aid
Add the rinse aid into this
dispenser.
You can help prevent unsightly spots on
dishes and glassware and reduce drying
time by using a rinse aid. A rinse aid is
specially formulated to rinse away food
and detergent residue that can be left
behind on your dishes. Used regularly, a
rinse aid will automatically provide you
with cleaner dishes every time you wash.
6
To fill the rinse aid dispenser, unscrew the dispenser cap located on the inner door (or on the back of the tub,
depending on your model). Add the rinse aid slowly into the dispenser until it just reaches the bottom of the
filling cap inside the dispenser opening. Then replace the cap.
Operating Instructions
To operate the dishwasher:
Make sure the inlet and drain hoses are correctly and securely connected.
1.

6.
Close the door securely
7.
Open the water supply.
8.
Push the power (on/off) button.
o Button pushed in = power on
o Button pushed in = power off

7
13.
14.
15.
You can select another program during operation by pressing the start/pause key first, then pressing
the program key to the desired program, and pressing the pause/start key again to start the new
program.
After washing, dishes should be allowed to cool down for about 15 minutes so they are not too hot to
handle. Dishes will cool more quickly if the door is opened slightly.
After unloading the dishwasher, remove the filter, clean off any bits of food, and put the filter back into
place.
NOTE: At the beginning of each cycle, the dishwasher always starts in the “drain” mode. This is because the
drain pump always retains a small amount of water (in the sump) from the previous cycle. This is necessary to
keep the pump primed. Therefore, do not be alarmed if you see a small amount of water being pumped out of
the drain hose prior to the start of the regular wash cycle. This is normal.
