1) The appliance senses the type of soil and the quantity of items in the baskets. It automatically adjusts the
temperature and quantity of the water, the energy consumption and the program time.
2) This is the most silent washing program. The pump works at a very low speed to decrease the level of noise.
Because of the low speed, the program time is long.
3) With this program you can wash a load with fresh soil. It gives good washing results in a short time.

4) This is the standard program for test institutes. With this program you have the most efficient use of water and
energy consumption for crockery and cutlery with normal soil. Refer to the supplied leaflet for test information.
5) With this program you can wash a load with mixed soil. Very heavy soil in the lower basket and normal soil in
the upper basket. The water pressure in the lower basket is three times higher than in the upper basket. The
temperature of the water in the lower basket is 25% higher than in the upper basket.

Installation
Installing the appliance under the kitchen counter or to adjacent units
WARNING!
To prevent injury or damage, make sure that the appliance is secured adjacent safe structures.
The appliance is provided with six fixing points:
• Two external brackets
• Four internal fixing points.
Use the external brackets when installing the appliance under the kitchen counter or to the
adjacent units or if the opening for the appliance is greater than 600 mm.
Use the four internal fixing points if the opening is 600 mm.
A combination of both fixing methods can be used if required.
Using the external brackets
1. Install the brackets in the slots on the top
of the appliance.
2. Adjust the height and level of the appliance.
3. Fix the brackets (on the top or on the
side) with the screws supplied. Make sure
that the screws are tight.
Using the internal fixing points
1. Adjust the height and the level of the appliance.
2. Fix laterally the appliance with the
spacers and screws supplied. Make sure
that the screws are tight.
x4
Once the installation is completed, make sure that
the bottom of the adjustable plinth is aligned with
the ground.
Custom made kick-panel
For integrated appliances and full-stainless-steel door appliances.
Installation
We recommend that you make a custom made
kick-panel that aligns your kitchen cabinets.
A notched continuous panel is necessary to prevent door swing interference and to keep kickpanel alignment with adjacent units.
1. Cut a notch in the kick-panel sufficient to let
the door swing freely under the appliance (refer to the chart).
2. Make a check for interference. Open and close
the door slowly. If the door touches the kickpanel, trim to prevent interference.
3. Attach the kick-panel to adjacent cabinets so
that if service is necessary you can remove it.

Water connection
WATER CONNECTION
Water inlet hose
Connect the inlet hose to a water tap with an external BSP thread spout of 3/4”.
For best washing performance it is recommended to connect the appliance to a cold water
supply.
Energy savings can be made by connecting the appliance to a Solar water system and using
economy options, however the water temperature must not exceed 60 °C.
Once connected the inlet hose to the water tap, turn the tap on and check that there are
no leaks.
Inlet water supply
• Water pressure: 800 kPa max - 50 kPa min.
• Water flow rate 10 L / minute min.
• If water pressure is in excess of 800 kPa, a pressure reducing valve should be used. Check
for leaks.
• If water temperature is in excess of 60 °C, a tempering valve should be used. Check for
leaks.
CAUTION!
Always use new hoses when you connect the appliance to the water mains. Old hoses must
not be used. The water inlet hose must be examined at an interval of twelve months for
deterioration and replaced if necessary.
The water pressure must be in the limits, refer to 'Technical data'.
Make sure that the local water authority gives you the average mains pressure in your area.
Make sure that the water inlet hose is not bent or squashed.
Fit the hose nut correctly to prevent water leaks.
CAUTION!
Do not connect the appliance to new pipes or pipes that have been not used for a long
time. Let the water run for some minutes, then connect the inlet hose.
The water inlet hose is double-walled and has an inner mains cable and a safety valve. The
water inlet hose is under pressure only while the water is running. If there is a leak in the
water inlet hose, the safety valve interrupts the running water.
Be careful when you install the water inlet hose.
WARNING!
• The mains cable is in the double-walled inlet hose. Do not immerse the water inlet hose
or the safety valve in water.
• Do not attempt to shorten the inlet hose.
• If the water inlet hose or the safety valve is damaged, immediately turn off the power
and remove the mains plug from the mains socket.
• Only a qualified Service Engineer can replace the water inlet hose with safety valve.
Water connection
31
WARNING!
Dangerous voltage
In order to pass the safety valve through the kitchen cabinets, an opening of at
least 45 mm x 90 mm is needed.
Water drain hose
Use the supplied hose clamp to connect the water drain hose to the sink.
The highest point of the drain hose must be no more than 600 mm from the floor and must
have a continuous fall to the plumbing connection.
The drain hose can be lengthened using additional lengths and connectors. These must be
purchased from Electrolux Spare Parts. The extension length must not exceed 2 metres.
The drain hose must be free of obstructions.
Remove the sink plug when the appliance drains the water to prevent that the water goes
back into the appliance.
32
Water connection
If you connect the water drain hose to a trap spigot under the sink, remove the plastic membrane.
If you do not remove the membrane, remaining
food can cause a blockage in the drain hose spigot.
The appliance has a security feature to prevent
dirty water going back into the appliance. If, the
spigot of the sink has a 'non-return valve', this
valve can cause the appliance to drain incorrectly.
Remove the non-return valve.
CAUTION!
Make sure that the water couplings are tight to prevent water leakage.
Ensure that hoses are not bent or squashed under
or behind the appliance.
Once connected the inlet hose to the water tap,
turn the tap on and check that there are no leaks.

supply on the rating plate match that of the supply where the appliance is to be installed.
• The fuse rating can be found on the rating plate and in 'Technical data'.
• Always plug the mains plug onto a correctly installed approved socket.
• Do not use multi-ways plugs, connectors and extension cables. This can constitute a fire
hazard through overheating.
• If necessary, have the domestic wiring system socket replaced. If the mains cable has to
be replaced, contact your local Customer Care centre.
• The mains plug must be accessible after the appliance has been installed.
• Never unplug the appliance by pulling on the cable. Always pull the plug.
