WATER CONNECTION
IMPORTANT
The appliance must be connected to
the water mains using new hose-sets.
The old hose-sets should not be reused.
1
■ The inlet and drain hoses can be directed
to left or right.
IMPORTANT
The dishwasher can be connected to
either cold or hot water, as long as it
is no hotter than 60°C.
■ Water pressure must be between
0,08 MPa and 0,8 MPa.
2
■ The inlet hose must be connected to a
tap so that the water supply can be cut
off when the machine is not in use
(fig. 1 B).
■ The dishwasher is fitted with 3/4" threaded
connector (fig. 2).
■ Connect inlet hose “A” to water tap “B”
with a 3/4" attachment making sure that
it has been properly tightened.
■ If it is necessary, the inlet pipe can be
lengthened up to 2,5 m. The extension
pipe is available from the After Sales
Service Centre.
■ If the dishwasher is connected to new
pipes or to pipes which have not been in
use for a long time run water through for
a few minutes before connecting the
inlet hose. In this way no deposits of
sand or rust will clog up the water inflow
filter.
8
■ The hose can be hooked over the side of
the sink, but it must not be immersed in
water, in order to prevent water from
being syphoned back to the machine
when this is in operation (fig. 4Y).
Connecting the outlet hose
■ The outlet hose should disharge into a
standpipe, making sure that there are no
kinks (fig. 4).
■ When installing the appliance under a
worktop the hose pipe clamp must be
attached to the wall in the highest possible
position under the worktop (fig. 4Z).
■ The standpipe must be at least 40 cm
above floor level and it must have an
internal diameter of at least 4 cm.
■ Check that there are no kinks in the inlet
and outlet hoses.
■ It is advisable to fit an anti-odour air trap
(fig. 4X).
■ If necessary the outlet hose can be
extended up to 2,5 m, provided that it is
kept at a maximum height of 85 cm
above floor level. The extension pipe is
available from the After Sales Service
Centre.

■ The salt dispenser has a capacity of
between 1.5 and 1.8 kg and, for efficient
use of the appliance, it should be refilled
from time to time according to the
regulation of the water softener unit.
LOADING THE SALT
■ The appearance of white stains on dishes
is generally a warning sign that the salt
container needs filling.
■ On the bottom of the machine there is a
container for the salt for regenerating
the softener.
IMPORTANT
(Only for first start up)
When the appliance is used for the
first time, after completely filling the
salt container, it is necessary to add
water until the container overflows.
■ It is important to use only a salt that is
specifically designed for dishwasher.
Other types of salt contain small quantities
of insoluble particles which over a long
period of time may affect and deteriorate
the softener performance.
■ To add salt, unscrew the cap of the container on the bottom and then refill the
container.
■ During this operation a little water will
overflow; but keep adding salt until the
container is full. When the container is
full, clean the thread of salt residue and
retighten the tap.
■ After loading the salt, it is recommended
running a complete washing cycle,
or COLD RINSE programme.
IMPORTANT
After loading the salt, YOU
MUST run a complete washing
cycle, or the PRE-WASH/COLD
RINSE/REFRESH programme.

INFORMATION FOR THE TEST LABORATORIES
Please ask information required for comparison testing and measuring noise levels, according
to EN normative, to the following address:
testinfo-dishwasher@candy.it
In the request, please specify model name and number of the dishwasher (see rating plate).
14
LOADING THE DETERGENT
The detergent
IMPORTANT
It is essential to use a detergent
that is specifically designed for
dishwashers either in powder, liquid
or tablet form.
B
After pouring the detergent into the container,
close the lid, firstly pushing (1) and then
pressing on it (2) until you hear the click.
Unsuitable detergents (like those for
washing up by hand) do not contain the
proper ingredients for use in a dishwasher,
and stop the dishwasher from working
correctly.
Filling the detergent container
The detergent container is inside the door
(fig. A “2”). If the lid of the container is
closed, press the button (A) to open.
At the end of every wash cycle the lid is
always open and ready for the next time
the dishwasher is used.
Since not all detergents are the same the
instructions on the boxes of detergent can
vary. We should just like to remind users
that too little detergent does not clean the
dishes properly whilst too much detergent
will not produce better results and is also a
waste.
WARNING!
When loading the lower basket, please
ensure that the plates or others do not
obstruct the detergent dispenser.
The amount of detergent to be used varies
according to how dirty the dishes are and
on the type of dishes to be washed.
We advise using 20÷30 g of detergent in the
wash section of detergent compartment (B).
IMPORTANT
Do not use an excessive amount of
detergent and help limit damage to
the environment at the same time.
A
15
■ the effectiveness of detergents containing
the built in water softener/salt depends
on the hardness of your water supply.
Check that the hardness of your water
supply is within the effective range given
on the detergent packaging.
TYPES OF DETERGENT
Detergent tablets
Detergent tablets of different manufacturers
dissolve at different speeds, for this
reason, during short programmes, some
detergent tablets may be not fully effective,
because they are not completely dissolved.
If these products are used, is recommended
to choose longer programmes to guarantee
the complete use of the detergent.
If when using this type of product, you
don't get satisfactory washing results,
please
contact
the
detergent
manufacturer.
In certain circumstances use of combined
detergents can cause:
IMPORTANT
To get satisfactory washing results,
the tablets MUST be placed in the
wash section of the detergent
container and NOT directly in the
tub.
■ limescale deposits on dishes or in the
dishwasher;
■ a reduction in washing and drying
performance.
Concentrated detergents
IMPORTANT
Any problems which arise as a direct
result of the use of these products
are not covered by our warranty.
The concentrated detergents, with reduced
alkalinity and with natural enzymes, in
conjunction with 50°C wash programmes,
have a smaller impact on the environment
and they protect the dishes and the
dishwasher.
The 50°C wash programmes purposely
exploit the dirt-dissolving properties of the
enzymes, allowing therefore, with the use
of the concentrated detergents, to achieve
the same results of the 65°C programmes
but at a lower temperature.
Please note that using the "ALL in 1"
combined detergents, the rinse aid and
salt indicator lights (only used on
selected models) are superfluous, so you
must ignore the lights.
Combined detergents
If washing and/or drying problems occur,
we recommend you return to use traditional
separate products (salt, detergent and
rinse agent). This will ensure that the water
softener in the dishwasher operates
correctly.
The detergents that also contain the rinse
aid must be placed in the wash section of
the detergent container. The rinse aid
container must be empty (if it is not empty,
set the rinse aid regulator to lowest position
before using combined detergents).
In this case, we recommends that you:
■ refill both the salt and rinse aid container;
"ALL in 1" combined detergents
■ run one normal washing cycle without a
load.
If you are planning to use “ALL in 1” (“3 in 1 “/
“4 in 1”/ “5 in 1”, etc.) combined detergents i.e.
those with built in salt and/or rinse agent,
we would advise the following:
Please note that on return to the use of
conventional salt, a number of cycles will
be required before the system becomes
fully efficient again.
■ read carefully and follow the manufacturer’s
instructions given on the packaging;
16
LOADING THE RINSE AID
The rinse aid
The rinse aid, which is automatically
released during the last rinsing cycle, helps
the dishes to dry quickly and prevents
spots and stains forming.
Filling the rinse aid container
C
The rinse aid container can be found to the
left of the detergent container (fig. A "3").
To open the lid, push the reference mark
and, in the same time, pull the tab of
opening.
It is always advisable to use rinse aid that
is specifically designed for dishwasher.
Check the rinse aid level through the
indicator eye (C) which is located on the
dispenser.
FULL

light
Regulating the rinse aid from 1 to 6
The regulator (D) is placed under the lid
and can be turned using a coin.
The recommended position is 4.
The limestone content of the water
considerably affects the formation of
limescale and the drying performance.
It is therefore important to regulate the
quantity of rinse aid to achieve good
washing results.
If, after the wash, streaks occur on the
dishes, decrease the amount by one
position. If whitish spots occur, increase the
amount by one position.
D
17
CLEANING THE FILTERS
The filter system (fig.A “4”) consists of:
1
a central container that traps the larger
particles;
a flat gauze that continuously filters the
wash water;
a micro filter, located beneath the gauze,
that traps the tiniest particles ensuring a
perfect rinse.
■ To achieve excellent results every time,
the filters should be checked and
cleaned after each wash.
■ To remove the filter unit, simply turn the
handle anticlockwise (fig. 1).
2
■ For ease of cleaning, the central container
is removable (fig. 2).
■ Remove the gauze filter (fig.3) and
wash the whole unit under a jet of
water. If necessary a small brush can
be used.
■ With the Self-cleaning Micro filter,
maintenance is reduced and the filter
unit need only be checked every two
weeks. Nevertheless, after each wash it
is advisable to check that the central
container and the gauze filter are not
clogged.
WARNING!
After cleaning the filters, make sure
that they are correctly reassembled
and that the gauze filter is properly
positioned at the bottom of the
dishwasher.
3
Make sure that the filter is screwed
back, clockwise, into the gauze, as
poor seating of the filter unit could
have an adverse effect on the
efficiency of the appliance.
IMPORTANT
Never use the dishwasher without
the filters.
18
PRATICAL HINTS
How to make savings
■ If you want the dishwasher to give a
complete wash, place the dishes in the
dishwasher at the end of each meal and
if necessary turn on the COLD RINSE
cycle to soften the food remains and
remove bigger particles of food from the
new load of dishes.
When the dishwasher is full start the
complete wash cycle programme.
How to get really good wash
results
■ Before placing the dishes in the
dishwasher, remove any remaining
food (bones, shells, pieces of meat or
vegetables, coffee grounds, skin of fruit,
cigarette ash, tooth picks etc. to avoid
blocking the filters, water outlet and
washing arm nozzles.
■ If the dishes are not very dirty or if the
baskets are not very full select an
ECONOMY programme, following the
instructions in the program list.
■ Try not to rinse the dishes before
loading them into the dishwasher.
■ If saucepans and oven dishes are
encrusted with the remains of burnt or
roast food, it is advisable to leave them
to soak before washing.
What not to wash
■ It should be remembered that not all
dishes are suitable for washing in a
dishwasher.We advise against using
the dishwasher to wash items in
thermoplastic, cutlery with wooden or
plastic handles, saucepans with
wooden handles, items in aluminium,
crystal, leaded glass unless otherwise
stated.
■ Place the dishes face downwards.
■ Try to place the dishes in such a way
that they are not touching one another.
If they are loaded properly you will get
better results.
■ After loading the dishes check that the
washing arms can rotate freely.
■ Certain decorations may fade. It is
therefore a good idea before loading the
whole batch to wash just one of the
items first so as to be sure that others
like it will not fade.
■ Pans and other dishes that have
particularly stubborn food particles or
remnants of burnt food should be left to
soak in water with dishwasher
detergent.
■ It is a good idea not to put silver cutlery
with non-stainless steel handles into
the dishwasher as there could be a
chemical reaction between them.
■ To wash silver properly:
a) rinse the silver immediately after
use, especially if it has been used for
mayonnaise, eggs, fish etc.;
IMPORTANT
When buying new crockery or
cutlery always make sure that they are
suitable for washing in a dishwasher.
b) do not sprinkle detergent onto it;
c) keep it separate from other metals.
Useful hints
■ In order to avoid any dripping from the
top rack, remove the lower rack first.
■ If the dishes are to be left in the
machine for some time, leave the door
ajar, to let some air circulate and to
improve the drying performance.
19
CLEANING AND
MAINTENANCE
1
1b
■ To clean the dishwasher outside, do not
use solvents (degreasing action) neither
abrasives, but only a cloth soaked with
water.
■ The dishwasher does not require special
maintenance, because the tank is
self-cleaning.
■ Regularly wipe the door gasket with a
damp cloth to remove any food remains
or rinse aid.
2
■ Dishwasher cleaning is recommended,
in order to remove limestone deposits or
dirt. We suggest you run a washing cycle
periodically with specialist dishwasher
cleaning products. For all cleaning
operations the dishwasher must be
empty.
■ If, in spite of the routine cleaning of the
filters, you notice that the dishes or pans
are not properly washed or rinsed, check
that all the spray heads on the rotor
arms (fig. A “5”) are clear.
WHEN CYCLE IS FINISHED
If they are blocked, clean them in the
following way:
After every wash it is essential to turn off
water supply and to switch off the machine
by pressing the On/Off button to the off
position.
1. to remove the upper rotor arm, turn it
until it lines up with the stop marked
by the arrow (fig. 1b). Push it upwards
(fig. 1) and, keeping it pushed in,
unscrew it in a clockwise direction
(to reassemble it repeat the same
operation, but turn it anticlockwise).
The lower rotor arm can be removed
simply by pulling it upwards (fig. 2);
If the machine is not going to be used for
some time, it is advisable to follow these
rules:
1. do an empty wash with detergent in order
to clean the machine of any deposits;
2. wash the rotor arms under a jet of water
to clear any blockage in the spray
heads;
2. pull out the electric plug;
3. when you have finished, refit the rotor
arms in the same position, remembering
to re-align the arrow and screw into
position.
4. fill the rinse aid container;
3. turn off the water tap;
5. Ieave the door ajar;
■ Both the door lining and the tank lining
are in stainless steel; however, should
spots caused by oxidation occur, this is
probably due to a high level of iron salts
presents in the water.
■ The spots can be removed with a mild
abrasive agent; never use chlorine
based materials, steel wool, etc.
6. keep the inside of the machine clean;
7. If the machine is left in places where the
temperature is below 0°C any water left
inside the pipes may freeze. Wait until
the temperature rises above zero and
then wait for about 24 hours before
starting up the dishwasher.

of countdown) the 3h indicator light will
stop flashing and remain on to indicate the
washing phase and the programme will

WATER SOFTENER UNIT
* The water softener unit is set in the
factory at level 3, as this is suitable for
the majority of users.
Depending on the source of the supply,
water contains varying amounts of limestone
and minerals which are deposited on the
dishes leaving whitish stains and marks.
The higher the level of these minerals
present in the water, the harder the water is.
The dishwasher is fitted with a water
softener unit which, through the use of
special regenerating salt, supplies
softened water for washing the dishes.
The degree of hardness of your water can
be obtained from your water supply
company.
According to the degree of hardness of
your water, regulate the softener unit in the
following way:
IMPORTANT
The dishwasher must ALWAYS be
off before start of this procedure.
1. Hold down the "PROGRAMME
SELECTION" button and at the same
time switch on the dishwasher by
pressing the "ON/OFF" button (a brief
audible signal will sound).
Regulating the water softener
The softener unit can treat water with a
hardness of up to 90°fH (French grading)
or 50°dH (German grading) through 6
different settings.
2. Keep the "PROGRAMME SELECTION"
button pressed for at least 5 seconds,
UNTIL an audible signal sounds. Some
"PROGRAMME SELECTION" indicator
lights will come on to indicate the
current water softener setting level.
The table below lists different degrees of
water hardness with the corresponding
