Caring for the Environment
Disposing of Your Packaging
Your new dishwasher was protected by suitable
packaging while on its way to you. All of the
materials used are environmentally friendly for
disposal and can be recycled. Please make a
contribution to protecting the environment by
disposing of the packaging appropriately.
Disposing of Your Old Dishwasher
Old dishwashers still have some residual
value. An environmentally friendly method
of disposal will make sure that valuable raw
materials can be recovered and used again.
When your dishwasher has reached the end of
its working life unplug it from the mains. Cut
off the mains cable and dispose of it together
with the plug.
Destroy the door locking mechanism so that
children and pets cannot accidentally lock
themselves in.

When the low salt indicator (Fig.2-5) lights, you must
fill the salt container. Remove the lower rack and then
unscrew and remove the cap from the salt container.
5.
Note: If you are filling the container for the first time, fill
it with water.
Place the end of the funnel (supplied) into the hole
and introduce about 2 kg of salt. It is normal for a small
amount of water to come out of the salt container.
6.
Carefully screw the cap back on.
IMPORTANT: To prevent the formation of rust, load the salt
just before beginning a wash cycle.
5
Rinse Aid
Fig.2-6
This product makes dishes sparkle and helps them to dry
without spotting. The dispenser is located on the inside panel
of the door.
Low rinse aid indicator
When the low rinse aid indicator on the control panel
(Fig.2-6) and the indicator on the dispenser (Fig.2-7) lights
you must add rinse aid.
Note: When 3-in-1 or similar combination detergent tablets
are used, the rinse-aid is no longer required.
Loading the Rinse Aid
Fig.2-7
To load the rinse aid:
1.
To open the dispenser, turn the cap in a counterclockwise direction and remove (Fig.2-8).
2.
Pour in the rinse aid, making sure not to overfill. The
rinse aid indicator will turn off when full.
Regulate the amount of rinse aid used for each cycle by
turning the dose adjuster (Fig.2-9), located beneath the cap,
with a screwdriver.
There are 6 different settings; the normal dosage setting is 3.
IMPORTANT: Proper dosage of rinse aid improves drying.
If drops of water remain on the dishes or spotting occurs,
the dosage adjuster should be turned to a higher setting. If
the dishes have white streaks, turn the adjuster to a lower
setting.
Fig.2-8
Fig.2-9

Detergent
Fig.2-10
Detergent specifically intended for use with dishwashers
must be used. The dispenser must be refilled before the start
of each wash cycle following the instructions provided in the

3.
Pour the detergent for the prewash cycle into
compartment ‘B’ (Fig.2-11).
4.
After the detergent has been placed in the dispenser,
close the cover and press down until it clicks in place.
Note: To allow the cover to close properly, remove any excess
detergent from the edges of the dispenser.
If you are using 3-in-1 or similar tablets, make sure
nn
you select the tablet function.
The solubility of tablets can vary depending on
nn
manufacturer. Therefore we do not recommend
tablets are used in short programs. It is more
suitable to use powder detergents in short
programs.
What You Should Not Put Into the
Dishwasher
Cutlery and tableware manufactured in whole or part from
wood, bone, ivory or mother of pearl (nacre). They become
faded and unsightly in appearance. Furthermore the
adhesives that are used are not suitable for the temperature
that occurs inside the dishwasher.
Delicate decorative glassware and vases, special antiques or
irreplaceable china. The decorative patterns on such items
will not be dishwasher-proof.
Plastic objects that are not resistant to hot water, copper and
pewter utensils are also not suitable. Decorative patterns
printed or painted onto the surface of crockery, glasses, etc.,
aluminium and silver items tend to become discoloured or
faded if washed in the dishwasher.
Some types of glass can become opaque in appearance after
they have been washed many times in a dishwasher. Highly
absorbent materials, such as sponges and towels should
never be placed in the dishwasher.
IMPORTANT: Dishes or cutlery that have been soiled by
tobacco ash, wax, grease or paint, should not be put in the
dishwasher.
7
Damage to Glassware and Other Dishes
Fig.2-12
Possible Causes
•
•
•
Type of glass or manufacturing process.
Chemical composition of detergent.
Water temperature and duration of dishwasher
program.
Suggested Remedy
•
•
•
•
Use glassware or porcelain dishes that have been
marked ‘dishwasher-proof’ by the manufacturer.
Use a mild detergent that is described as ‘kind to dishes’.
If necessary, seek further information from detergent
manufacturers.
Select a program with a low temperature and a short
duration.
To prevent damage, take glass and cutlery out of the
dishwasher as soon as possible after the program has
ended.
Fig.2-13
Arranging Crockery, Glasses, etc. in the
Dishwasher
Before placing the dishes in the dishwasher, remove larger
food particles to prevent the filter from becoming clogged,
resulting in reduced performance.
If the pots and pans have baked-on food that is extremely
hard to remove, we recommend that they are soaked before
washed. This will eliminate the need for extra wash cycles.
Pull out the basket to load the dishwasher.
Using the Lower Basket
The lower basket has adjustable supports that fold down to
allow larger items to be placed (Fig.2-12). We recommend
that you place the most difficult to clean items on the lower
rack: pots, pans, lids, serving dishes and bowls (Fig.2-13).
It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the sides of
the racks to avoid blocking the rotation of the top spray arm.
Pots, serving bowls, etc. must always be placed face down.
Deep pots should be slanted to allow the water to flow out.
WARNING!
nn
Knives and other utensils with sharp points must
be loaded in the basket with their points down or
placed in a horizontal position.
8
Using the Upper Basket
Fig.2-14
The upper basket (Fig.2-14) is designed to hold more
delicate and lighter dishware, such as glasses, cups and
saucers, plates, small bowls and shallow pans (as long as they
are not too dirty).
Position the dishes and cookware so that the spray of water
does not move them.
The upper basket can be adjusted for height. The basket
is supplied in its upper position, allowing more space to
accommodate taller pans and trays in the bottom basket.
To adjust the height of the basket, hold both sides, lift and
lower. Repeat this to adjust from the lower to upper position.
Upper Basket Shelves
Lean tall glasses and those with long stems against the
shelves. DO NOT lean them against other items to be washed.
Place glasses, cups and small bowls on the shelves. The
shelves can be swivelled in or out as required (Fig.2-15).
Adjustable Supports
The upper basket has adjustable supports that fold down to
allow larger items to be placed (Fig.2-16).

Program Overview
Switching the Dishwasher OFF
Several minutes after the program has ended:
1.
Open the door.
2.
Set the ON-OFF button to OFF.
3.
Remove dishes, etc. when they have cooled down.
Note: For the best drying performance, we recommend that
you do not remove the contents for at least 30 minutes. This
allows residual heat in the dishwasher to remove any small
droplets of water that may occur.
Interrupting the Program
CAUTION!
nn
There is a risk of water coming out from inside the
dishwasher. DO NOT open the door fully until the
spray arm has stopped rotating.
If the dishwasher has already heated up or the hot water was
switched ON and then the dishwasher door opened, leave the
door ajar for several minutes and then close.
After 30 seconds the program will start from the point it was
interrupted. If the door is opened during the drying process
the program will be terminated.
Cancelling a Program
CAUTION!
nn
There is a risk of water coming out from inside the
dishwasher. DO NOT open the door fully until the
spray arm has stopped rotating.
To cancel a program that is underway, carefully open
the door and press the program button and hold it in for
about 3 seconds. When the door is closed the water will be
discharged for about thirty seconds. Five beeps will indicate
that the program is cancelled; the end of program indicator
will turn on.
Modifying a Program
CAUTION!
nn
There is a risk of water coming out from inside the
dishwasher. DO NOT open the door fully until the
spray arm has stopped rotating.
A cycle that is underway can be modified if it has only been
running for a short time. Otherwise, the detergent may have
already been used and the dishwasher may have already
drained the wash water. If this is the case, the detergent
dispenser must be refilled (see ‘Loading the detergent’).
To modify a cycle that is already underway, open the door
and select a new program by pressing the program selection
button. Closing the door will start the new program from a
suitable point in the old program.

Inspect the nozzles in the spray arms for blocked holes due to
remnants of food.
If necessary, pull the lower arm (Fig.3-6) upwards and lift it
off. Unscrew the upper spray arm (Fig.3-7).
Clean both spray arms under running water.
Refit the spray arms. Make sure that the lower arm
nn
has locked into place and the upper one is screwed
tight.
Solvents or Abrasive Cleaning Products
To clean the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher, do
not use solvents or abrasive cleaning products. Rather, use
only a cloth and warm soapy water.
Fig.3-6
To remove spots or stains from the surface of the interior, use
a cloth dampened with water and a little white vinegar or a
cleaning product made specifically for dishwashers.
Moving the Dishwasher
If the dishwasher must be moved, try to keep it in a vertical
position. If absolutely necessary, it can be positioned on its
back.
Seals
One of the factors that cause odours to form in the
dishwasher is food that remains trapped in the seals. Periodic
cleaning with a damp cloth will prevent this from occurring.
Fig.3-7
Hose Filter
To prevent particles of rust, sand etc. entering your
dishwasher the inlet hose is fitted with a filter. To clean the
filter, turn off the water tap and unscrew the hose. After
cleaning insert the filter into the hose. Refit the hose and turn
the water tap on.
When You Go on Holiday
When you go on holiday, it is recommended that you run a
wash cycle with the dishwasher empty and isolate from the
mains. Turn off the water supply and leave the door of the
dishwasher slightly ajar. This will help the seals last longer and
prevent odours from forming within the dishwasher.

Electrical Connection
General
The dishwasher must be installed by a qualified electrician,
in accordance with all relevant British Standards/Codes of
Practice (in particular BS 7671), or with the relevant national
and local regulations.
Measures must be taken to ensure that the units that are
subsequently re-sited as freestanding dishwashers cannot
topple over. This can be achieved by bolting the dishwasher
to the wall or fitting it under a continuous work surface, that
is screwed to the adjacent cupboards.
WARNING: THIS DISHWASHER MUST BE EARTHED
nn
For detailed information on performance tests, please contact
the following:
All external wiring must comply with the IEE Regulations
for the Electrical Equipment of Buildings. Connection to the
electrical supply can be made with either a plug and socket
or be permanently wired via a double pole switch. The
dishwasher is supplied with a 3-core cable.
Dishwasher@standardtest.com
In your e-mail, please provide the model name and serial
number (20 digits) which can be found on the side of the
dishwasher door.
Should the plug not fit the socket in your home, it should be
removed and replaced with a suitable plug.
Note: If the plug that is fitted is not suitable, it must be cut off
and disposed of properly. To avoid the risk of electrocution,
the plug must not be left where children might find it and
plug it into a supply socket.
Three pin plugs to BS 1363 with a capacity of not less than
13 A must be used and fitted with a 13 amp fuse ‘ASTA’
approved to BS 1362.
After replacing the fuse the cover must be refitted. If the
