Before using the dishwasher/Connections
1. Removing the packaging
and controls:
After unpacking, make sure
that the dishwasher is
undamaged and that the
door closes correctly.
If in doubt, contact a
qualified technician or your
local retailer.
• Keep the packaging
materials (plastic bags,
polystyrene parts, etc.) out of
reach of children, as they are
potentially dangerous.
• This dishwasher has been
factory tested to ensure it
functions correctly.
Such testing may leave slight
water marks that will
disappear with the first wash.
2. Water and electrical
connections:
All water and electrical
connections must be carried
out by a qualified technician
in compliance with the
manufacturer's instructions
(refer to the enclosed
installation booklet) and
current local safety
regulations.
The appliance must only be
used in the household for
the prescribed uses.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure the inlet and drain
hoses are kink-free and are
not crushed.
If the hose length is not
sufficient, please contact
your local dealer or our AfterSales Service.
The inlet hose must be
securely clamped to the
water tap to prevent leaks.
The inlet water temperature
varies according to the model
installed. Inlet hose marked
“25°C Max”:
maximum temperature 25°C.
All other models: maximum
temperature 60°C.
When installing the
appliance, make sure the
drain water discharges
correctly (if necessary,
remove the wire gauze from
the sink siphon).
Fix the drain hose to the
spigot with a clamp to
prevent it from coming off
during operation.
For appliances with waterstop system only: if the water
connections are made
correctly, the water-stop
system safeguards your
home against damage
caused by flooding.
4. Electrical connection:
Closely adhere to local
Electricity Board regulations.
• Voltage information is shown
on the rating plate mounted
inside the door on the right
hand side.
• The appliance must be
earthed as prescribed by law.
• Do not use extension leads or
multiple adapters.
• Before carrying out
maintenance, disconnect the
mains plug.
• If necessary, the power cable
may be replaced with one the
same obtained from our
After-Sales Service. The
power cable must only be
replaced by a qualified
technician.
•
Warning:
The mains plug must be
positioned in an easily
accessible place.
•
For Austria: if the apparatus
is series connected to a fault
current switch, this must be
sensitive to the pulsating
current.
Do not use the dishwasher if
it has been damaged in
transit. Consult your local
retailer or our After-Sales
Service.
(Refer to the separate
installation instructions
booklet)
3. Water inlet and drain:
• Observe any special
regulations issued by your
local Water Board.

2) For the Republic of
Ireland only
Warning - this appliance
must be earthed
The information given in
respect of Great Britain will
frequently apply, but a third
type of plug and socket is also
used, the 2-pin, side earth type.
Fuse replacement
If the mains lead of this
appliance is fitted with a
BS 1363A 13amp fused plug,
to change a fuse in this type
of plug use an A.S.T.A.
approved fuse to BS 1362
type and proceed as follows:
1. Remove the fuse cover (A)
and fuse (B).
2. Fit replacement 13A fuse into
fuse cover.
3. Refit both into plug.
Important:
The fuse cover must be
refitted when changing a
fuse and if the fuse cover is
lost the plug must not be
used until a correct
replacement is fitted.
Correct replacement are
identified by the colour

recycled as confirmed by the
recycling symbol
.
2. Energy and water saving
tips:
• Do not rinse crockery under
running water.
• Always fully load the

• If ecological energy sources
are available, such as solar
panel heating, heat pumps or
centralised heating systems,
the appliance may be
connected to the hot water
mains up to a maximum
temperature of 60°C. Make
sure the water inlet hose is of
the correct type. Refer to the

your area, contact your local
Water Board or check the last
bill you received).
If the water hardness level does
not correspond to position 3 on
the selector (setting on
delivery) or if the water

How to fill the salt container
Warning: only use

the water softener system.
1. Remove the lower rack.
2. Unscrew the cap by turning
it counter-clockwise.
3. When first using the
dishwasher: fill the salt
container to the rim with
water.
4. Fill the salt container with
Salt level indicator
The dishwasher is equipped
with an electric or visual salt
level indicator (depending on
the model installed).
Electric indicator
The salt level indicator lamp on
the control panel lights up when
the salt container is empty.

(when filling for the first time
min. 1.5 kg and max. 1.7 kg)
and stir with a spoon handle.
5. Screw the cap back on by
turning it clockwise.

wash programme (rinsing
alone is not sufficient) in
order to eliminate any
residual saline solution
straight away and avoid
corrosion.
If the water hardness level
falls within category 1 (soft),
no salt is required.
