it reaches a horizontal position. If the appliance is levelled
correctly, it will be more stable and much less likely to move
or cause vibrations and noise while it is operating.
2. Before recessing the dishwasher, stick the adhesive
transparent strip* under the wooden shelf in order to protect
it from any condensation which may form.
3. Place the dishwasher so that its sides or back panel are in
contact with the adjacent cabinets or the wall. This appliance
can also be recessed under a single worktop* (see the
Assembly instruction sheet).
4*. To adjust the height of the rear foot, turn the red hexagonal
bushing on the lower central part at the front of the dishwasher
using a hexagonal spanner with an opening of 8 mm. Turn the
spanner in a clockwise direction to increase the height and
in an anticlockwise direction to decrease it. (see Building-in
instruction sheet attached to the documentation)

Advice regarding the first wash cycle
After the installation, remove the stoppers from the racks and
the retaining elastic elements from the upper rack (if any).
Water softener settings
Before starting the first wash cycle, set the hardness level of the water from the mains supply. (see chapter Rinse
aid and refined salt).
First load the softener tank with water, then introduce about
1 kg of salt. It is perfectly normal for water to flow out.
As soon as this procedure is complete, run a wash cycle.
Only use salt that has been specifically designed for dishwashers.
After the salt has been poured into the machine, the LOW

For values between 0°f and 10°f, we do not recommend the use
of salt. A setting of 5 may increase cycle duration.
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 dispenser be never empty.
• It is important to set the water hardness.
The salt dispenser is located in the lower part of the dishwasher
(see Description) and should be filled:
• When the LOW RINSE AID indicator light in the control panel
is lit *;
• When the green float* on the cap of the salt dispenser is no
longer visible.
• See autonomy in the water hardness table.
1. Remove the lower rack and unscrew the
container cap (anticlockwise).
2. Only the first time you do this: fill the water
dispenser up to the edge.
3. Position the funnel (see figure) and
fill the salt container right up to its edge
(approximately 1 kg); it is not unusual for a
little water to leak out.
4. Remove the funnel and wipe any salt residue away from the
opening; rinse the cap under running water and then screw it on.
It is advisable to perform this procedure every time you add salt
to the container.
Make sure the cap is screwed on tightly, so that no detergent can
get into the container during the wash cycle (this could damage
the water softener beyond repair).
(°dH = hardness measured in German degrees - °f = hardness
measured in French degrees – mmol/l = millimoles per litre)
Whenever you need to add salt, we recommend carrying out
the procedure before the washing cycle is started.
If you are not completely satisfied with the drying results, you
may want to adjust the quantity of rinse aid used.
• Switch the dishwasher on using the On/Off button.
Setting the water hardness
• Switch it off using the On/Off button
For perfect water softener operation, it is essential that the

Measuring out the rinse aid
Rinse aid makes dish DRYING easier. The rinse aid dispenser
should be filled:
• When the LOW RINSE AID indicator light on the panel/display
is lit *;
• When the dark optical indicator* on the dispenser door “D”
becomes transparent.
1. Open the dispenser “D” by pressing and pulling up the tab
on the lid;
2. Carefully introduce the rinse aid as far as the maximum
reference notch in the filling space - avoid spilling it. If this
happens, clean the spill immediately with a dry cloth.
3. Press the lid down until you hear a click to close it.
NEVER pour the rinse aid directly into the tub.
Adjusting the amount of rinse aid
• Press the START/PAUSE button
three times
• Switch it on using the On/Off button
• The rinse-aid indicator light will flash as many times as the
level that was set.
• Set the knob to the level number of rinse aid quantity to be
• Switch it off using the On/Off button
• Setting is complete!
If the rinse aid level is set to ZERO, the rinse aid will not be
supplied and the low rinse aid indicator light will not be lit if you
run out of it.
A maximum of 4 levels can be set according to the dishwasher
model. The factory setting is for a medium level.
• If you see bluish streaks on the dishes, set a low number (1-2).
• If there are drops of water or limescale marks on the dishes,
set a high number (3-4).
Loading the racks
Before loading the racks, remove all food residues from the
crockery and empty liquids from glasses and containers. No
preventive rinsing is needed 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.
Make sure that the lids, handles, trays and frying pans do not
prevent the spray arms from rotating. Place any small items in
the cutlery basket.
Since plastic dishes and non-stick frying pans usually retain more
water drops, their drying will be not so good as that of ceramic
or stainless-steel dishes.
Lightweight items such as plastic containers should be placed in
the upper rack and arranged so that they cannot move.
After loading the appliance, make sure that the spray arms can
rotate freely.
Lower rack
Several dishwasher models are fitted with tip-up sectors*.
They can be used in a vertical position when arranging dishes
or in a horizontal position (lower) to load pans and salad bowls
Cutlery basket
The basket is equipped with top grilles for improved cutlery arrangement. The cutlery basket should be positioned only at the
front of the lower rack.
The lower rack can hold pans, lids, dishes, salad bowls, cutlery
etc. Large plates and lids should ideally be placed at the sides.
Upper rack
Load this rack with delicate and lightweight crockery such as
glasses, cups, saucers and shallow salad bowls.
Very soiled dishes and pans should be placed in the lower rack
because in this sector the water sprays are stronger and allow
a higher washing performance.
* Only available in selected models.
Several dishwasher models are fitted with tip-up sectors*.
They can be used in a vertical position when arranging tea/
dessert saucers or in a lower position to load bowls and food
Tip-up compartments with adjustable position
The side tip-up compartments can be positioned at three different
heights to optimize the arrangement of crockery inside the rack.
Wine glasses can be placed safely in
the tip-up compartments by inserting
the stem of each glass into the
corresponding slots.
For optimum drying results incline
the tip-up compartments more. To
change the inclination, pull up the
tip-up compartment, slide it slightly
and position it as you wish.
The upper rack can be adjusted for height based on requirements:
high position to place bulky crockery in the lower rack and low
position to make the most of the tip-up compartments/sectors
by creating more space upwards.
Adjusting the height of the upper rack
In order to make it easier to arrange the crockery, the upper rack
may be moved to a higher or lower position.
The height of the upper rack should be adjusted WHEN THE
NEVER raise or lower the rack on one side only.
Cutlery tray*
Some dishwasher models are fitted with a sliding tray which
can be used to hold serving utensils or small cups. For optimum
washing performance avoid positioning bulky crockery directly
below the tray. The cutlery tray can be removed (see Figure).
If the rack is equipped with a Lift-Up device* (see figure), lift
it up by holding its sides. To restore the lower position, press
the levers (A) at the sides of the rack and follow the rack down.
Unsuitable crockery
• 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
• 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
Caused by:
• Type of glass and glass production process.
• Chemical composition of detergent.
• Water temperature of rinse cycle.
• 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.
* Only available in selected models.
Detergent and
dishwasher use
Measuring out the detergent
Starting the dishwasher
A good wash result also depends on the correct amount of
detergent being used. Exceeding the stated amount does not
result in a more effective wash and increases environmental
1. Turn the water tap on.
2. Press the ON/OFF button:
3. Open the door and pour in a suitable amount of detergent.
4. Load the racks (see Loading the racks) and shut the door.
5. Select the wash cycle by turning the WASH CYCLE
Based on how soiled the items are, the amount can be
adjusted to individual cases using powder or liquid
In the case of normally soiled items, use approximately either
35 gr (powder detergent) or 35 ml (liquid detergent). If tablets
are used, one tablet will be enough.
If the crockery is only lightly soiled or if it has been rinsed
with water before being placed in the dishwasher, reduce
the amount of detergent used accordingly.
For good washing results also follow the instructions shown
on the detergent box.
For further questions please ask the detergent producers.
To open the detergent dispenser use the opening device “A”.

the number/symbol representing the desired wash cycle. The
START/PAUSE indicator light will go on.
6. Select the wash options* (see Special wash cycles and
7. Start the cycle by pressing the Start/Pause button: a beep will
sound* and the indicator light corresponding to the wash
phase will go on to signal that the cycle has begun.
8. At the end a few beeps * will signal the end of the wash cycle
and the END indicator light will go on. Switch off the appliance
by pressing the ON/OFF button, shut off the water tap and unplug
the appliance from the electricity socket.
9. Wait a few minutes before removing the crockery to avoid
getting burnt. Unload the racks, beginning with the lower level.
- The machine will switch off automatically during
certain periods of inactivity in order to minimise
electricity consumption.
Changing a wash cycle in progress
Introduce the detergent into the dry dispenser “B” only.
Place the amount of detergent for pre-washing directly
inside the tub.
1. When measuring out the detergent refer to the Table of wash
cycles to add the proper quantity. Compartment B comprises a
level showing the maximum quantity of liquid or powder detergent
that can be added to each cycle.
2. Remove detergent residues from the edges of the dispenser
and close the cover until it clicks.
3. Close the lid of the detergent dispenser by pulling it up until
the closing device is secured in place.
The detergent dispenser automatically opens up at the right time
according to the wash cycle.
If all-in-one detergents are used, we recommend using the TABS
option, because it adjusts the cycle so that the best washing and
drying results are always achieved.
Only use detergent which has been specifically designed
for dishwashers.
DO NOT USE washing up liquid.
Using excessive detergent may result in foam residues
remaining in the machine after the cycle has ended.
If a mistake was made in the wash cycle selection process, it
is possible to change the cycle provided that it has only just
begun: once the wash cycle has started, in order to change
the wash cycle switch off the machine by pressing and holding
the ON/OFF/Reset button. Switch it back on using the same
button and select the desired wash cycle and options.
Adding extra crockery
Press the Start/Pause button - the corresponding indicator
light will flash. Open the door, taking care to avoid the
escaping steam, and place the crockery inside the appliance.
Press the Start/Pause button (fixed light): the cycle starts
If the Start/Pause button is pressed so as to pause the
machine, both the wash cycle and the Delayed Start function
(if selected) are interrupted.
At this stage the wash cycle cannot be changed.
Accidental interruptions
If the door is opened during the wash cycle or there is a
power cut, the cycle stops. It starts again from the point at
which it was interrupted once the door has been shut or the
electricity supply restored.
To achieve the best washing and drying results, the combined
use of detergent, rinse aid liquid and refined salt is required.
We recommend using detergents that do not contain
phosphates or chlorine, as these products are harmful
to the environment.

Care and maintenance
Shutting off the water and electricity
• Turn off the water tap after every wash cycle to avoid leaks.
• Always unplug the appliance when cleaning it and when
performing maintenance work.
Cleaning the dishwasher
• The external surfaces of the machine and the control panel
can be cleaned using a non-abrasive cloth which has been
dampened with water. Do not use solvents or abrasive
• Any marks on the inside of the appliance may be removed
using a cloth dampened with water and a little vinegar.
Preventing unpleasant odours
• Always keep the door of the appliance ajar in order to avoid
moisture from forming and being trapped inside the machine.
• Clean the seals around the door and detergent dispensers
regularly using a damp sponge. This will avoid food becoming
trapped in the seals, which is the main cause behind the
formation of unpleasant odours.
Cleaning the filters
The filter assembly consists of three filters which remove food
residues from the washing water and then recirculate the water.
They should be cleaned if you wish to achieve the best results
in every wash.
Clean the filters regularly.
The dishwasher should 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 C 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 A. (fig. 3).
4. Inspect the trap and remove any food residues. NEVER
REMOVE the wash-cycle pump protection (black detail) (fig.4).
Cleaning the sprayer arms
Food residue may become encrusted onto the sprayer 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.
The two sprayer arms may both be removed.
To remove the upper sprayer arm,
turn the plastic locking ring in an
anti-clockwise direction. The upper
sprayer arm should be replaced
