PART 3: INSTALLATION
Unpacking
Remove the external packaging, remove the protective plastic film from the surface of the appliance (if used)
and clean the external parts of the appliance with an agent designed for this purpose. Do not use steel wool or
any coarse agents, which could irreparably damage the surface of the appliance. Carefully remove all papers
and adhesive tape from the appliance, door and other parts packed in polystyrene. Remove documents and
accessories from inside the appliance.
The packaging material is recyclable and is marked with a recycling symbol. For disposal follow the local
regulations. Packaging materials (plastic bags, polystyrene parts, etc.) must be kept out of the reach of children,
because they present a possible source of danger.
Carefully inspect the appliance. If you discover any defects, stop the installation and contact the vendor.
Placement
Place the appliance in the desired location. The dishwasher is equipped with a water supply hose and a drain
hose, which can be connected either on the right or left hand side of the dishwasher.
Levelling the appliance
After placing the dishwasher in its place it is not level, you can level it by using the levelling feet. Under no
circumstances should the dishwasher be tilted by more than 2°.
Connecting to a power source
WARNING!
For reason of personal safety:
Do not connect to an extension cord or a multi-plug socket. Under no circumstances remove or cut
away grounding from the power cord.
Power source demands
Information about the required voltage for the connection of the dishwasher to a suitable power source is
contained on the appliance's rating label. Use the required 10A fuse, the recommended delaying fuse or circuit
breaker and ensure that this appliance has its own independent electrical circuit.
Before use, check that the appliance is properly grounded.

Electrical connection
Check that the voltage and frequency of the used power source correspond to the information on the
appliance's rating label. Insert the power plug only into a properly grounded power socket. If the socket to
which the appliance will be connected is not properly grounded, replace the socket rather than using adapters,
etc., which could lead to overheating or burning.
WARNING!
• The incorrect connection of the grounding conductor may create a risk of injury by electrical
shock.
• If you have any doubts about the proper grounding of the appliance, ask a qualified electrician
or service technician for verification.
• Do not modify the power plug supplied with the appliance. If the power plug does not correctly
fit into your power socket, ask a qualified electrician to replace it.
Water supply
How to connect the water supply hose?
You must connect the dishwasher to a water supply using a new hose. Do not use perished, old or otherwise
damaged hoses.
Water pressure must be in the range 0.03 MPa to 1 MPa. If the water pressure in your system is lower, ask for
advice from our service department.
•
•
•
Pull out the hose fully from the storage area in the rear part of the dishwasher.
Screw in the water supply hose to a tap with a 3/4" thread.
Fully open the water supply before turning on the dishwasher.
Water supply hose
The water supply hose has double wall. The water filling system guarantees intervention by blocking the
water supply in the event that the water supply hose fails.
WARNING!
The hose connected to the water supply to the sink may break, if the sink is connected to the same
water system as the dishwasher. We recommend that you disconnect the hose and plug the opening.

How to disconnect the water supply hose?
•
•
•
Shut off the water inlet.
Reduce water pressure by pressing the reduce pressure button. This will reduce the water pressure and
prevent water from possibly squirting out into the room.
Unscrew the water supply hose from the water tap.
Cold water supply connection
Connect the water supply hose to the cold water inlet with a 3/4" thread and check that you have tightened
it properly. If the hoses are new or have not been used for a long time, flush them out with water, to be sure
that they are clean inside with all dirt removed. If you do not do this, you risk clogging up the water inlet and
damaging the appliance.
Hot water supply connection
You can also connect hot water to the dishwasher (supplied by the central system, heated by the heating
system), if the water temperature does not exceed 60 °C. This will shorten the washing cycle by 15 minutes and
the washing efficiency will be slightly reduced.
The connection must be carried out in the same way as for the cold water.
WARNING!
To prevent water from staying in the hose, close the water inlet into the dishwasher. (This does not
apply to dishwashers with the aqua-stop function.)
Connecting the drain hose
Insert the drain hose into the waste water pipe with a minimum diameter of 4 cm or leave it
lying in the sink and ensure that it is not bent or dented. Use a special plastic bracket supplied
with the appliance. The hose must be at a height of 50 to 100 cm above the ground. The loose end of the hose
must not be submerged in water so that reverse water flow does not occur.
NOTE:
The hose must be at a height of 50 to 100 cm above the ground. The loose end must not be submerged
in water.

Draining water
•
Connect the drain hose. The drain hose must be properly attached so that water does not leak. Check that
the hose is not knotted up or pinched.
Extending the hose
•
•
If you need to extend the drain hose, you must use the same type of drain hose.
The hose must not be longer than 4 meters. Otherwise the efficiency of the dishwasher would be reduced.
Built-in
This dishwasher is designed to be built-in. Adhere to all warnings and instructions contained in this user's manual
during installation.

PART 5: BEFORE PUTTING INTO OPERATION
Before first use
Before you put your dishwasher into operation:
a) set water softening;
b) pour 1/2 litre of water into the salt compartment and fill it up with salt;
c) fill the rinsing aid compartment;
d) fill the dishwashing detergent compartment.
Identifying water hardness
The dish washing efficiency of your dishwasher depends on the hardness of the water used. Therefore, your
dishwasher is equipped with a system which reduces water hardness at the main water inlet. The better the
system is set up the better the achieved washing efficiency. Your water supplier should provide you with
information about water hardness in your area or you may measure it yourself using a simple harness test,
a special testing strip (not included).

CAUTION!
If your dishwasher does not have a water softening system, you can skip this chapter.
Adding salt into the salt container
Always use salt designed for dishwashers.
The salt compartment is located under the lower rack and you should refill it in the following manner.
NOTE
• Use only salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers! Any other kind of salt, which is not
specifically designed for use in dishwashers, particularly table salt, would damage the softener
system in the dishwasher. Damage caused by the use of inappropriate salt is not covered by
the manufacturer's guarantee and the manufacturer takes no responsibility for any damages
caused.
• Add the salt before starting one of the full washing cycle programs. This will prevent salt
crystals or salt water from lying at the bottom of the dishwasher, where this could lead to
corrosion.
salt
a) Slide out the lower rack and then unscrew the lid of the salt compartment.
b) Before the first wash, pour water into the salt compartment.
EN - 14
Copyright © 2014, Fast ČR, a. s.
12/2014
Place the funnel (included accessory) on the opening of the compartment and pour 1 kg of salt into it.
• It is normal for a smaller amount of water to run out of the compartment.
d) After filling the compartment screw the lid back on by turning it in the clockwise direction.
e) The salt warning indicator light will turn off within 2 - 6 days after the salt compartment has been refilled.
f ) You should start a washing program immediately after the salt compartment has been refilled (we
recommended the rinse or quick wash program). Otherwise the salt water could damage the filtration
system, pump and other important part of the dishwasher. This is not covered by the warranty.
c)
NOTE
• Only refill the salt compartment when the salt warning indicator light on the control panel
lights up. Depending on how well the salt dissolves, the warning indicator light may stay on
even after the salt compartment has been refilled.
• If there is no salt warning indicator light on the control panel (on some models), you can
estimate the amount after adding salt to the system by the number of cycles performed by the
dishwasher.
• If salt runs out anywhere, remove it by starting the rinse program or the quick wash program
(depending on the model).
Adding rinsing aid
Rinsing aid compartment
•
•
The rinsing aid is released during the last rinse so that water drops do not remain on your dishes causing
stains. It also improves drying due to the fact that all the water flows off the dishes. Your dishwasher is
designed to only be used with a liquid rinsing aid. The rinsing aid compartment is located on the inside
wall of the door next to the dishwashing detergent compartment.
Fill up the compartment by opening it and pouring in the rinsing aid until the indicator goes completely
dark. The capacity of the rinsing aid compartment is approximately 110 ml.
NOTE:
Use only branded dishwasher rinsing aids. Never pour other mixtures (such as liquid detergents, etc.)
into the rinsing aid compartment. Otherwise the dishwasher may be damaged.
When should the rinsing aid be refilled?
If the rinsing aid compartment is empty, the relevant indicator light on the control panel will turn on indicating
the need to add rinsing aid. After filling the compartment with rinsing aid the entire indicator is dark. As the
rinsing aid is gradually used up the point of the indicator becomes smaller. Never allow the amount of rinsing
aid to fall below 1/4 of the compartment volume.
NOTE
Wipe any spilled rinsing aid with a wiping cloth, so that excessive suds are not formed in the
following wash. Do not forget to put the lid back on before closing the dishwasher door.
EN - 15
Copyright © 2014, Fast ČR, a. s.
12/2014
Setting dial (rinse)
The rinsing aid compartment has six different settings. Its factory level setting is 3. If stains form on the dishes
or if there is a problem with drying the dishes, increase the released amount of the rinsing aid by removing
the lid and turning the dial to "4". If despite this step the dishes are not without stains after drying, adjust
the setting again to a higher level until the dishes are clean after drying. If rinsing aid residues remain on the
dishes, reduce the level to 1 – 2. The recommended setting is "3". (The value set by the manufacturer is "3".)
NOTE:
If there are water drops or scale stains on the dishes after the wash, increase the dosage. If there are
white stains or bluish layers on glasses or knife blades, lower the dosage.
Function of the detergent
Dishwashing detergents with their chemical additives are essential for the removal of soils, their decomposition
and removal from the dishwasher. For this purpose the majority of commercial quality dishwashing detergents
are suitable.
Dishwashing detergents
There are 3 types of dishwashing detergents:
1. containing phosphates and chlorine;
2. containing phosphates and without chlorine;
3. without phosphates and without chlorine.
New dishwashing detergents usually do not contain phosphates and so the softening function of the
phosphates is missing. In such a case we recommended the use of a softening salt even when the water
hardness is a mere 6°dH. If you use dishwashing detergents without phosphates and have hard water, this
leads to the frequent appearance of white stains on dishes and glasses. In such a case you will therefore
achieve better results if you add more dishwashing detergent. Chlorine-free dishwashing detergents whiten
only slightly. For this reason strong and colourful stains will not be completely removed. In such a case select
a program with a higher temperature.
Concentrated dishwashing detergents
Based on their chemical composition dishwashing detergents are divided into two basic types:
• standard, alkaline dishwashing detergents with caustic additives;
• less alkaline dishwashing detergents with natural enzymes.
Using "standard" washing programs in combination with concentrated dishwashing detergents reduces pollution
and is appropriate for your dishes. These programs are specifically improved with enzymes, which are
contained in concentrated dishwashing detergents, that can dissolve soils. For this reason you can achieve the
same results with concentrated dishwashing detergents using a "standard" washing program, as you would
achieve only with the use of an "intensive" program.

Dishwashing tablets
The dissolving speed of various brands of dishwashing tablets may differ. For this reason some tablets may not
dissolve during the short programs and therefore fail to perform their cleaning function. So when using tablets
use the long programs to ensure the removal of all dishwashing detergent remains.
Dishwashing detergent compartment
You must fill up the compartment before starting any washing cycle according to the instructions contained in
the dishwashing cycle table. Your dishwasher uses less dishwashing detergent and rinsing aid than an ordinary
dishwasher. Generally a single tablespoon of dishwashing detergent is sufficient for a standard wash. For
more heavily soiled dishes you will need more dishwashing detergent. Always add the dishwashing detergent
immediately before starting the dishwasher, otherwise it could become damp and subsequently not dissolve
completely.
NOTE
• If the lid is closed. Press the button. The lid will open.
• Always add the dishwashing detergent immediately before starting each washing cycle.
• Use only branded dishwashing detergents designed for dishwashers.
WARNING!
The dishwashing detergent is corrosive! Keep it out of children's reach.
Using the dishwashing detergent
Use only dishwashing detergent specifically designed for use in dishwashers. Store the dishwashing detergent
in a dark and dry place.
Do not put dishwashing detergent powder into the compartment unless you intend to start the dishwasher.
Dosage of the dishwashing detergent

5.
Release the clip to open the dishwashing detergent compartment.
Place the required amount of dishwashing detergent into the main wash detergent compartment (if you
are using a dishwashing powder). Make sure that the amount of the dishwashing detergent is between the
MIN and MAX level lines.
If the dishes are overly soiled, also add dishwashing detergent into the pre-wash partition.
Close the dishwashing detergent compartment.
Now turn on the dishwasher.

NOTE:
The mark "MIN" in the main wash detergent compartment corresponds to approximately 20g
of dishwashing detergent. The pre-wash detergent compartment will take approximately 5g
of dishwashing detergent.
Follow the recommended dosages and storage indicated by the manufacturer on the packaging of the
dishwashing detergent.
Close the lid and press it down until it clicks in.
If the dishes are heavily soiled, also add dishwashing detergent into the pre-wash compartment. This dose will
be used during the pre-wash phase of the wash.
NOTE:
You can find the information about dishwashing detergent dosages in the washing program table .
Keep in mind that the results may differ depending on the degree of soiling and hardness of the water
used.
Follow the manufacturer's recommendations on the dishwashing detergent package.

PART 6: ARRANGING DISHES / CUTLERY IN THE DISHWASHER
•
•
•
•
Purchase dishes designated as dishwasher safe.
Use a gentle dishwashing detergent marked as "gentle on dishes". If necessary seek out further information
from the dishwashing detergent manufacturer.
For certain types of dishes select a lower temperature.
To prevent possible damage, remove glassware and cutlery from the dishwasher as soon as possible after
the end of the wash.
Unsuitable are:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
cutlery with wooden, bone or mother-of-pearl handles;
plastic parts that are not heat resistant;
older cutlery with glued parts that are not heat resistant;
glued cutlery or dishes;
tin or copper dishes;
crystal glassware;
metal parts susceptible to corrosion;
wooden cutting boards;
dishes made from synthetic fibres.
Partially suitable are:
•
•
•
some types of glass may corrode after several washes;
silver and aluminium cookware may become discoloured by the wash;
glazed patterns may fade if washed frequently.
NOTE:
Your dishwasher will achieve the best performance if you follow these instructions for inserting dishes
into the racks.
The function and appearance of the racks and the eating utensil basket may differ depending on the
model of the dishwasher.
NOTE:
Do not place any items into the dishwasher soiled by cigarette ash, wax, varnish or paint.
When buying new dishes, check that they are dishwasher safe.
First remove remaining or burned on foods. It is not necessary to wash dishes under running water.
Insert the dishes into the dishwasher as follows.
•
•
•
•
Items such as cups, glasses, pots / pans, etc., should be placed bottom up.
Curved cookware and cookware with projections should be placed at an angle to allow water to freely
flow out.
Place dishes safely so that they cannot tip over.
Place dishes in such a way that the spraying arms can rotate freely during the wash.
NOTE:
Do not wash very small pieces in the dishwasher because they can easily fall out of the rack.
EN - 19
Copyright © 2014, Fast ČR, a. s.
12/2014
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Hollow cookware, e.g. cups, glasses, pans, etc. should be placed bottom up so that water does not
accumulate inside them during the wash.
Dishes and cutlery must not be inserted into each other or to cover each other.
To prevent damaging glasses, they must not touch each other.
Place hard-to-clean large cookware in the lower rack.
The upper rack is intended for lighter and fragile dishes, such as glasses, cups and mugs.
Knives with a large blade placed in a vertical position are dangerous!
Long and/or sharp cutlery, e.g. kitchen knives must be placed horizontally in the upper rack.
Do not overfill your dishwasher. For better washing results and lower power consumption.
Taking dishes out of the dishwasher
To prevent water dripping down from the upper rack on to the dishes in the lower rack, we recommended you
first empty the lower rack and only then the upper rack.
Upper rack
The upper rack is designed for lighter dishes:
• glasses, cups and mugs and saucers, also small plates, small bowls and shallow pots (if they are not too soiled).
Place the dishes in such a way that they will not be moved by the sprayed water current.
Setting the height of the upper rack
The height of the upper rack can be set so as to create more space for larger dishes in the upper / lower rack,
without you having to remove the upper rack from the dishwasher.
To increase the height of the upper rack, hold the upper rack by both sides and pull it upwards. To reduce the
height, hold the upper rack by both sides and push it downwards.
Make sure that both sides are at the same height.
EN - 20
Copyright © 2014, Fast ČR, a. s.
12/2014
Setting the height of the side partitions
You can set the height of the side partitions to create more / less room for larger / smaller glasses / cups in the
upper rack.
At the same time the side partitions are divided into 4 smaller sections, so you can set 2 different heights on
either side.
Tilting down the tines in the upper rack
The tilt down tines in the upper rack make it possible to increase the space for placing dishes. Each part may be
folded down independently or all at once. The tilting tines can either be tilted down or completely removed.
EN - 21
Copyright © 2014, Fast ČR, a. s.
12/2014
Lower rack
We recommend you place larger cookware and hard-to-clean cookware into the lower rack:
• pots, pans, lids, serving plates and bowls.
It is better to place serving plates and lids on the sides of the rack, so that the spraying arm does not become
blocked.
Remember that:
• pots, serving bowls, etc. must be place bottom up;
• deep pots should be placed at an angle so that water can freely run out of them;
• the tines on the lower rack can be folded, so that you can insert larger pots and pans or more smaller items.
Special cookware, e.g. large pans or plates should be placed in the lower rack.The recommended placement
is shown below.
Tilting down the tines in the lower rack
For the easier placement of pots and pans into the lower rack, you can tilt down the tines as shown in the
picture.

Bottle tine
The bottle tine makes it easier to wash bottles.
Side partitions of the lower rack
The side partitions of the lower rack make it possible to comfortably wash glasses, cutlery, ladles, knives and
other kitchen utensils.
If you will not be using the side partitions, move them from position "a" to position "b". Make sure that the
safety latch are correctly in position "c". If you wish to use the side partitions, perform the latter in reverse order.
The side partitions can be used in two position – low position "d" and high position "e". In this way you can gain
more space for other dishes.

Basket for cutlery
The special basket for cutlery is located above the upper rack and is specially designed for holding cutlery
and small kitchenware.
This basket can be easily removed from the dishwasher.
The basket for cutlery consists of two part, which you can use as necessary.
NOTE:
Knives and other sharp utensils must be placed horizontally in the basket for cutlery.

Dual wash
This product combines low water pressure in the upper spray arm with high pressure in the lower spray arm.
You can, therefore, place lightly soiled dishes in the upper rack and heavily soiled dishes in the lower rack
and wash the dishes together.
*
The "Quick wash 18'" is only suitable for washing lightly soiled dishes from about 4 people. In this program you
can only use a powder washing agent.
WARNING!
The programs "Quick wash 18'", Quick 30'" and "Super 50'" do not include the drying function.
The above mentioned values were obtained on the basis of laboratory tests according to relevant
standards. These values may change depending on conditions such as the type of dishes used,
degree of dirtiness, type of dishwashing detergent, water pressure, water hardness, etc.).

Pull out the lower and upper rack, load it with dishes and then slide back in.
• We recommend that you first load the lower rack and only then the upper rack.
Fill the compartment with dishwashing detergent (see section "Dosage of the dishwashing detergent").
Connect the power plug to the power socket. Power source is 220 - 240 V ~ 50 Hz, power socket specification
12 A, 250 V ~. Check that the water inlet is fully open.
Press the main power switch.
Use the up/down arrows to select a washing program. Select a program based on the degree to which
the dishes are soiled – see the program table. The washing time of the program will be shown on the
remaining time / delayed start indicator.
If necessary, select an additional function.
To start the program press the Start/Pause button. The display will show "Program Activated" (Program
activated) and the selected program will start.
Once a program is started, the name of the selected program will appear on the information panel, the
remaining time of the washing cycle will appear on the remaining time / delayed start indicator. The number
of the washing program will appear on the program number indicator.

Monitoring the washing cycle
When the washing cycle is started, the washing cycle time countdown will also be activated and will be shown
on the display.
You can monitor the individual phases of the washing cycle by means of the symbols on the display.
Gradually the symbols for washing, rinsing and drying will be shown. When the drying symbol is shown, the
dishwasher will not make any sound for about 40 – 50 minutes.
Do not open the dishwasher door until the end of cycle symbol appears on the display.
NOTE:
You can open the door several minutes after the end of the washing cycle to speed up the drying process.
If you open the door during the washing cycle or if the power supply is interrupted during the washing
phase, the washing cycle will resume at the point of the interruption.
If you open the door during the washing cycle or if the power supply is interrupted during the drying
phase, the program will end. The appliance will be ready for starting a new program.
The dishwasher is equipped with a water softening process depending on the set water hardness level.
For this reason the time remaining to the end of the washing cycle may differ to the time shown at the
beginning of the washing cycle. The total washing cycle time may also depend on the room temperature,
water temperature in the supply hose, the amount of dishes, etc.
Additional functions
You can add additional functions to a washing program as necessary. The washing programs have been
developed to reliably remove all soils from dishes and to provide clean dishes. The additional functions serve
to save time, water, power, making washing more effective. For example, if the dishes are only slightly soiled,
the "Quick wash" function will suffice. You will shorted the time and reduce water consumption compared to the
standard program. If you also use a tablet that contains all the washing components, you will achieve better results.
Additional functions are not available for all washing programs. In the table below you will find detailed
information about additional functions and washing programs.

PART 9: MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Filtration system
The filter prevents food remains or other foreign items from entering the pump.
Food remains may clog the filter and in such a case it is necessary to take it out.
The filtration system consists of a coarse filter, a flat (main) filter and a micro-filter (fine filter).
1 Main filter
Food remains and soils caught by this filter are pulverised by a special jet on the bottom spraying arm and
flushed down the drain.
2 Coarse filter
Larger parts, e.g. bits of bone or glass, which could clog the drain are stopped by the coarse filter. Remove the
soils caught by this filter by taking the filter out - gently press the plug on the top of this filter and lift it up.
3 Fine filter
This filter stops the remains of soils and food in the area of the water tank and prevent the remains from
returning back to the area of the dishwasher during the wash.
Installing the filter
The filter effectively removes food remains from the water used to wash the dishes and so this water can
be used repeatedly during the wash. You will achieve better wash results if you regularly clean out the filter.
For this reason it is better to remove the food remains from the filter after every wash by flushing out the
semi-circular filter and containers under running water. Take out the filter by pulling upwards on the container
handle.
WARNING!
• Never use the dishwasher without a filter.
• An incorrectly seated filter may lower the efficiency of the dishwasher and cause damage to dishes.
Recommendation:
• After every use of the dishwasher check that the filters are not clogged.
• You can take out the filtration system by unscrewing the coarse filter. Remove any food remains
and clean out the filters under running water.
NOTE:
You should clean the entire filtration system once per week..

Cleaning the filters
To clean the coarse and fine filters use a brush. Reassemble the individual parts of the filter as shown on pictures
1 – 5 (pictures above). Reinsert them back into the dishwasher in their place and press them downwards.
WARNING!
Do not knock on the filters when cleaning them. Otherwise the filters could bend, which would
lower the efficiency of the dishwasher.
Never use the dishwasher without a filter. An incorrectly seated filter may lower the efficiency
of the dishwasher and cause damage to dishes.
Dishwasher care
You can clean the control panel using a light damp wiping cloth. Thoroughly dry the area after cleaning.
Clean the exterior parts of the dishwasher using a quality polish.
Never use any sharp items, steel wool or coarse, sandy cleaning products to clean any part of the dishwasher.
Cleaning the door
To clean the door edges use a soft, warm, damp wiping cloth. To prevent water leaking into the door lock or its
electronic parts, do not use any cleaning agents in sprays.
WARNING!
• Never use cleaning agents in sprays to clean the dishwasher door because
this could damage the door lock and electrical parts.
• Do not use sandy cleaning agents or certain types of kitchen paper towels, because
they could scratch or leave marks on the stainless steel parts of the dishwasher.
Protection against frost
In winter take steps against the dishwasher freezing. After every wash do the following:
• Disconnect the dishwasher from the power source.
• Close the water inlet and disconnect the supply hose from the water valve.
• Drain water from the water supply hose and the water valve. (Drain the water into a container.)
• Reconnect the water supply hose to the water valve.
• Take out the filter on the bottom of the dishwasher and using a sponge suck up the water from the waste
tank.
NOTE
If your dishwasher is not working because it has frozen, contact an authorised service technician.

Cleaning the spraying arms
It is important to regularly clean the spraying arms so that hard water minerals do not clog the jets and the
bearings of the spraying arms. Detach the spraying arms by turning the nut clockwise, remove the washer from
the spraying arm and then the spraying arm itself.
Wash the spraying arms in warm soapy water and clean out the jets using a brush. After thoroughly flushing
them reattach them.
How to keep your dishwasher in good condition?
•
•
•
•
•
•
After every wash.
After every wash close the water inlet into the dishwasher and leave the door slightly open so that
humidity that would otherwise accumulate inside is ventilated out.
Disconnect from the power socket.
Always disconnect the dishwasher from the power source before cleaning or any maintenance.
No solvents or sandy cleaning agents.
Never clean the external or rubber parts of the dishwasher using solvents or sandy cleaning agents.
Only use a wiping cloth dipped in warm soapy water.
Remove stains from the surface of the dishwasher using a wiping cloth dipped in water with a little vinegar
or a cleaning agent specially designed for dishwashers.
When taking out of operation for an extended period of time.
We recommend that you run an empty cycle without dishes and then disconnect the dishwasher from
the power source, shut off the water supply and leave the dishwasher door slightly open. This will help
to increase the lifetime of the door gasket seals and will prevent the accumulation of odours inside the
dishwasher.
Moving the appliance.
In the event that you need to move the appliance, you must move it in the vertical position. If it is really
necessary place it down on its rear side.
Gasket seal.
One of the factors causing odours inside the dishwasher is food remains, which get caught in the gasket
seals. You can prevent this by regularly cleaning with a damp sponge.
