unsorted municipal waste stream. Old appliances must be collected separately in order to
optimise the recovery and recycling of the materials they contain and reduce the impact on
human health and the environment. The crossed out “wheeled bin” symbol on the product
reminds you of your obligation, that when you dispose of the appliance it must be separately
collected. Consumers should contact their local authority or retailer for information
concerning the correct disposal of their old appliance. Saving energy and respecting the
environment.
• Please dispose of packaging and old appliances carefully.
• To minimise risk of injury to children, remove the door, plug and cut mains cable off flush
with the appliance.
• Dispose of these parts separately to ensure that the appliance can no longer be plugged into
a mains socket and the door cannot be locked shut.

Saving water and energy
• Only start a wash cycle when the dishwasher is full.
• While waiting for the dishwasher to be filled, prevent unpleasant odours with the Rapid
Wash.
• Select a wash cycle that is suited to the type of dishes/crockery and to the soil level of the
dishes/crockery using (see the washing program section): - for dishes with a normal soil level,
use the Eco wash cycle, which guarantees low energy and water consumption levels.
• if the load is smaller than usual activate the Half load function.
• If your electricity supply contract gives details of electricity saving time bands, run wash
cycles during the periods when a lower tariff is applied.
• use the Time Delay start function to help you organise the wash cycles accordingly.
• We strongly recommend that you use detergents that do not contain phosphates or chlorine,
as these products are harmful to the environment. We recommend Phosphate-free and
chlorine-free detergents containing enzymes.
• Enzymes provide a particularly effective action at temperatures around 50°C, and as a result
detergents containing enzymes can be used in conjunction with low-temperature wash cycles
in order to achieve the same results as a normal 65°C wash cycle.
• To avoid wasting detergent, use the product in appropriate quantities based on the
manufacturer’s recommendations, the hardness of the water and the soil level and quantity
of the crockery. Even if they are biodegradable, detergents contain substances that may alter
the balance of nature.
• Recycling & Disposal Information: As part of our continued commitment to helping the
environment, we reserve the right to use quality recycled components to keep down
customer costs and minimise material wastage.
• Please dispose of packaging and old appliances carefully.

2.
3.
4.
Set the water softener level
Add 1.5kg dishwasher salt and fill the salt container with water
Add rinse aid to the rinse aid dispenser
Fill the detergent dispenser with detergent powder or a detergent tablet
Water Hardness & Setting the Salt
The water softener must be set digitally, using the water hardness setting function. The
water softener is designed to remove minerals and salts from the water, which would have
a detrimental or adverse effect on the operation of the appliance. The higher the content
of these minerals and salts, the harder your water is. The softener should be adjusted
according to the hardness of the water in your area. Your local Water Authority can advise
you on the hardness of the water in your area.
Adjusting Salt Consumption
The dishwasher is designed to allow for adjustment in the amount of sa lt co nsumed based
on the hardness of the water used. This is intended to optimise and customise the level of
salt consumption.
Please follow the steps below for adjustment in salt level/consumption:
1. Open the door and switch on the appliance.
2. Within 60 seconds after the appliance was switched on press and hold the ‘Start/pause’
button for more than 5 seconds to start the water softener setting function. The salt and
rinse aid warning lights will flash periodically during the water setting function.
3. Press the ‘Start/pause’ button to select the required softener level in accordance with your
local water hardness level. The program indicator lights will light up to indicator the different
softener levels (please see the table on the following page). The softener levels will change
in the following sequence: H1->H2->H3->H4->H5->H6 (H1 is the lowest setting and H6 is the
highest setting).
4. Press the On/off button to set the softener level.
Note: The hardness of the water varies from place to place. If hard water is used in the
dishwasher, deposits will form on the dishes and utensils. The appliance is equipped with a
special softener that uses a salt container specifically designed to eliminate lime and minerals
from the water.

Loading the salt into the container
Important Note:
• Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers. Every other type of salt not
specifically designed for use in a dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water
softener. In case of damage caused by the use of unsuitable salt the manufacturer do not give
any warranty and we are not liable for any damage caused.
• Only fill with salt just before starting one of the complete washing programs.
• This will prevent any grains of salt or salty water, which may have been spilled, remaining on
the bottom of the machine for any period of time, which may cause corrosion.
The salt container is located beneath the lower basket and should be filled as explained in the
following section:
1. Remove the lower basket and then unscrew and remove the cap from the salt container. See
diagram 1 on the following page.
2. Place the salt funnel that is provided into the hole and pour approximately 1.5kg of
dishwasher salt into the salt container
3. Fully fill the salt container with water. It is normal for a small amount of water to come out of
the salt container. See diagram 2 on the following page.
4. After filling the container, screw the cap tightly back clockwise.
5. Usually, the salt warning indicator light will stop being illuminated within 2-6 days after the
salt container has been filled.

6. Immediately after filling the salt into the salt container, a washing program should be
started (We suggest to use the Quick or rapid programs) Otherwise the filter system,
pump or other important parts of the machine may be damaged by salty water. This may
affect the guarantee.

Note:
• The salt container must only be refilled when the salt warning light in the control panel
comes on. Depending on how well the salt dissolves, the salt warning light may still be on
even though the salt container is filled.
• If there are spills of salt, a soak or a rapid program should be run to remove the excessive
salt.
Rinse Aid Dispenser
Rinse Aid dispenser
The rinse aid is released during the final rinse to prevent water from forming droplets on your
dishes, which can leave spots and streaks. It also improves drying by allowing water to roll off
the dishes. Your dishwasher is designed to use liquid rinse aids. The rinse aid dispenser is
located inside the door next to the detergent dispenser.
To fill the dispenser, open the cap and pour the rinse aid into the dispenser until the level
indicator turns completely black. The volume of the rinse aid container is about 110ml.
Function of Rinse Aid
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring thorough rinsing, and spot and
streak free drying.
Important note:
Only use branded rinse aid for dishwasher. Never fill the rinse aid dispenser with any other
substances (e.g. Dishwasher cleaning agent, liquid detergent). This may damage the
appliance.

Opening times: Monday - Friday 8am – 8pm & Saturday 9am – 1pm
or visit us at www.productcare.co.uk
15
When to Refill the Rinse Aid Dispenser
There is a rinse aid warning indicator light in the control panel which will light when there is no
or little rinse aid in the rinse aid dispenser. Alternatively you can manually check/estimate the
amount of rinse aid in the rinse aid dispenser from the colour of the optical level indicator
located next to the cap. When the rinse-aid container is full, the whole indicator will be darker.
As the rinse-aid diminishes, the size of the dark dot decreases. You should never let the rinse
aid level fall 1/4 full.
As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of the black dot on the rinse aid level indicator changes, as
illustrated below:

Rinse Aid Dispenser
The rinse aid dispenser has six settings. Always start with the dispenser set on "4". If spots and
poor drying are a problem, increase the amount of rinse aid dispensed by removing the
dispenser cover and rotating the dial to "5". If the dishes still aren’t drying properly or have spots
on them, adjust the dial to the next higher lever until your dishes are spot-free. The
recommended setting is "4“ (Factory setting is "4".)
Rinse Aid

Note: Increase the dose if there are drops of water or lime spots on the dishes after washing.
Reduce it if there are sticky whitish stains on your dishes or a bluish film on glassware or
knife blades.
Detergent
Detergent with its chemical ingredients are necessary to remove dirt, crush dirt and transport it
out of the dishwasher.
Important notes:
• Only use detergent specifically made for use in dishwashers.
• Keep your detergent fresh and dry.
• Don't put powder detergent into the dispenser until you're ready to wash dishes.
• Dishwasher detergent is corrosive! Keep it out of reach of children.
Detergents
There are 3 sorts of detergents:
1. With phosphate and with chlorine
2. With phosphate and without chlorine
3. Without phosphate and without chlorine

Opening times: Monday - Friday 8am – 8pm & Saturday 9am – 1pm
or visit us at www.productcare.co.uk
17
Detergent
Normally new pulverised detergent is without phosphate. Thus the water softener function of
phosphate is not given. In this case we recommend to fill salt in the salt container even when
the hardness of water is only 7*clarke. If detergents without phosphate are used in the case of
hard water often white spots appear on dishes and glasses. In this case please add more
detergent to reach better results. Detergents without chlorine do only bleach a little. Strong and
coloured spots will not be removed completely. In this case please choose a program with a
higher temperature.
Concentrated Detergent
Based on their chemical composition, detergents can be split in two basic types:
• conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components
• low alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes
Detergent Tablets
Detergent tablets of different brands dissolve at different speeds. For this reason some
detergent tablets cannot dissolve and develop their full cleaning power during short programs.
Therefore please use long programs when using detergent tablets, to ensure the complete
removal of detergent residuals.
Detergent Dispenser
The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each wash cycle following the instructions
provided in the wash cycle table. Generally, only one tablespoon of detergent is needed for a
normal wash load. More heavily soiled items will need more detergent. Always add the
detergent just before starting the dishwasher, otherwise it could get damp and will not dissolve
properly if added mid cycle.

Loading the Dishwasher
d. All utensils are placed in the way that the spray arms can rotate freely during
washing.
e. Load hollow items such as cups, glasses, pans etc. with the opening facing
downwards so that water cannot collect in the container or a deep base.
f. Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another, or cover each other.
g. To avoid damage to glasses, they must not touch.
h. Load large items which are most difficult to clean into the lower basket.
i. The upper basket is designed to hold more delicate and lighter dishware such as
glasses, coffee and tea cups.
j. Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving knives must be positioned
horizontally in the upper basket. Long bladed knives stored in an upright position are
a potential hazard!
4. Do not overload your dishwasher. This is important for good results
5. Very small items should not be washed in the dishwasher as they could easily fall of the
basket
6. Long items, serving cutlery, salad servers and knives should be placed on the shelf so that
they do not obstruct the rotation of the spray arms.
7. Pots, serving bowls, etc. must always be placed top down.
8. Deep pots should be slanted to allow water to flow out.
9. The Bottom Basket features folding spikes so that larger or more pots and pans can be
loaded.
10. The height of the upper basket is adjustable

The upper basket is designed to hold more delicate and lighter dishware such as glasses, coffee
and tea cups and saucers, as well as plates, small bowls and shallow pans (as long as they are
not too dirty).
Position the dishes and cookware so that they will not get moved by the spray of water. The
below diagram is an example of how to load the upper basket:
Front of upper basket
Loading the Lower Basket
We suggest that you place large items and the most difficult to clean items into the lower
basket: such as pots, pans, lids, serving dishes and bowls, as shown in the figure below.
It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the side of the racks in order to avoid
blocking the rotation of the top spray arm.

Maintenance & Cleaning
Filtering System
The filter prevents larger remnants of food or other objects from getting inside the pump. The
residue may block the filter, in this case they must be removed.
The filter system consists of a coarse filter, a flat (Main filter) and a micro filter (Fine filter).
2) Coarse Filter
Larger items, such as pieces of bones or
glass, that could block the drain are trapped
in the coarse filter. To remove the items
caught by the filter, gently squeeze the tap
on the top of this filter and lift out.
1) Main Filter
Food and soil particles trapped in this filter
are pulverized by a special jet on the lower
spray arm and washed down to drain.
3) Fine filter
This filter holds soil and food residues in the
sump area and prevents it from being
redeposit on the dishes during wash cycle.
Filter Assembly
Important notes:
• The dishwasher must never be used without the filters.
• Improper replacement of the filter may reduce the performance level of the
appliance and damage dishes and utensils.
The filter efficiently removes particles of food from the wash water, allowing it to be recycled
during the wash cycle. For best performance and cleaning results, the filter must be cleaned
regularly. For this reason, it is recommended to remove the larger food particles trapped in the
filter after each use by removing all debris from all parts of the filter (you may need to use a
cleaning brush to remove all debris from the coarse and fine filters) and rinse all parts of the
filter under running water.

Maintenance & Cleaning
No Solvents or Abrasive Cleaning
To clean the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher, do not use solvents or abrasive
cleaning products. Only use a cloth with warm soapy water.
To remove spots or stains from the surface of the interior, use a cloth dampened with water
and a little vinegar, or a cleaning product made specifically for dishwashers.
When not in use for a long time
It is recommend that you run a wash cycle with the dishwasher empty and then remove the
plug from the socket, turn off the water supply and leave the door of the appliance slightly
open. This will help the door seals to last longer and prevent odours from forming within the
appliance.
Moving the Appliance
If the appliance must be moved, try to keep it in the vertical position. If absolutely necessary,
it can be positioned on its back but cannot be left in this position.
Seals
One of the factors that cause odours to form in the dishwasher is food that remains food
debris and moisture in the seals. Periodic cleaning these with a damp sponge will prevent this
from occurring.
