Salt ......
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 specifically designed to eliminate lime and minerals
from the water.
Loading the Salt into the Softener
Always use salt intended
for use with dishwashers.
The salt container is
located beneath the
lower rack and should be
filled as follows:
1. Remove the lower rack
and then unscrew and
remove the cap from the
salt container;
2. If you are filling the
container for the first
time, fill it with water;
3. 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.
4. Carefully screw the cap back on.
Adjusting Salt Consumption
The dishwasher is designed to allow for adjusting the
amount of salt consumed based
on the harness of the water
used. This is intended to
optimize and customize the
level of salt consumption so that
it remains at a minimum.
Your Local Water Board can
supply the degree of hardness
of the water
in your area.
To adjust salt consumption, proceed as follows:
1) Unscrew the cap from the salt container.
2) There is a ring on the container with an arrow on it (see
figure to the side), if necessary, rotate the ring in the anticlockwise direction from the "_" setting towards the "+"
sign, based on the hardness of the water being used.
It is recommended that adjustments be made in accordance with the following schema:
Water Hardness
The salt container should be filled up when the low
salt indicator light "E" flashes. Your appliance will
remind you to do so for three consecutive wash cycles.
Warning: To prevent rust from forming, we advise you to
load the salt before starting a wash cycle.

Detergent and Rinse Aid ....
Rinse Aid
This product makes dishes sparkle and helps them to dry
without spotting. The dispenser is located on the inside panel
of the door and should be filled when the rinse aid indicator
light comes on.
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 "Wash Cycle Table." The detergent dispenser is
located on the inside panel of the door.
Loading the Rinse Aid
To open the dispenser, turn the "C" cap in the anti-clockwise
direction and then pour in the rinse aid, making sure not to
overfill. The amount of rinse aid used for each cycle can be
regulated by turning the "F" dose adjustor, located beneath
the "C" cap, with a screwdriver. There are 6 different
settings; the normal dosage setting is 4.
Loading the detergent
To open lid "A", press button "B". The cleaning detergent
should be introduced into the two containers "C"and
"D" up to the rim.
After pouring in the detergent, replace the lid, pressing
down until it clicks.
25 gr.
5 gr.
Proper dosage of the rinse aid improves drying.
If drops of water remain on the dishes or spotting occurs,
the dosage adjustor should be turned to a higher setting. If
the dishes have white streaks, turn the dosage adjustor to
a lower setting.
Dishwasher detergent in tablets is now available on the
market, in which case you should place one tablet into
container "D" and replace the lid.
Notice: To facilitate closing the cover, remove any
excess detergent on the edges of the dispenser.
Loading the Dishwasher
Top Rack
Bottom Rack
Before placing the dishes in the dishwasher, remove the
larger food particles to prevent the filter from becoming
clogged, which results in reduced performance.
If the pots and pans have baked-on food that is extremely
hard to remove, we recommend that they be allowed to
soak before they are washed. This will eliminate the need
for extra wash cycles.
Pull out the racks to facilitate loading the dishwasher.
How to Use the Lower Rack
We recommend that you place the most difficult to clean
items on the bottom rack: pots, pans, lids, serving dishes
and bowls, as shown in the figure to the right.
It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the sides
of the racks in order to avoid blocking the rotation of the
top spray arm.
- Pots, serving bowls, etc. must always be placed top
- Deep pots should be slanted to allow the water to flow
Load for 12 Standard Settings
Top Rack
Bottom Rack
The cutlery basket can be split up (see figure A): when
you only have little cutlery to wash, you can use just half
the basket. Save space for the saucepans or you can place
the other half of the basket in the upper rack instead. This
basket is equipped with two removable grids: insert the
cutlery one by one into the slots, with the handles at the
bottom. Position them so that they don't touch.
Normal Daily Load
After loading the dishes, remember to check that the
blades on the sprayer arms can turn freely without hitting
against any dishes.
Especially long utensils should be placed in the horizontal position at the front of the upper rack.
How to Use the Upper Rack
The upper rack 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 do not
get moved by the spray of water.
How to adjust the Upper rack ...
The top rack can be adjusted using the two rack heights
(top and bottom). To adjust the rack, open up the tabs
that lock the guides and pull out the rack. Arrange the
rack with the back wheels in either the top or bottom
position and then insert it along the guides until the front
wheels are on as well. Close the tabs to lock the rack in
place (see Fig. F).

Turning on the Appliance
First of all....
After having completed all of the installation steps in the
preceding paragraphs, turn on the water to the unit and
press the ON-OFF button (A) located on the control panel.
The "B" indicator light will come on. At this point, the
appliance is on and ready to be programmed.
Starting and selecting the cycle...
Turn the cycle selector knob "D" until the reference notch
on the knob corresponds with the symbol for the cycle you
wish to set (have a look at the wash cycle table on page 7).
After a few seconds, you will hear a short beep and the
indicator light “G” comes on, indicating that the wash cycle
has begun and it is not advisable to make any changes at
this point.
Cycle phase indicator lights
The dishwasher is provided with 4 indicator lights "G" which
come on in sequence as the appliance is performing that
specific phase of the wash cycle.
These phases are, from left to right:
If you forget to load some of the dishes...
The wash cycle can be interrupted by pressing the ON-OFF.
You can then load additional dishes and turn the appliance
back on. The cycle will start where it left off.
At the end of the wash cycle….
The end of the wash cycle is signalled by 2 short beeps and
a flashing drying phase indicator light “G”. Set the knob to
the Reset position to clear all settings.
Turn the appliance off by pressing button "A", thus cutting
off the electricity supply.
Turn off the water tap.
Wait a few minutes before unloading the dishes: they are
very hot! If you wait a little while, they dry better thanks to
the steam.
Empty the lower rack first.
Make sure the wash cycle has ended before removing the
There's been a power failure? Have you opened the
dishwasher door?
The wash cycle stops and then restarts when the electricity
comes back on or when you close the door.
Cancelling or modifying a wash cycle in progress…..
Premise: You can cancel the wash cycle in progress, if it has
only just started.
To modify a wash cycle in progress, turn the knob anticlockwise and set it to Reset, after a few seconds you will
hear 3 beeps and indicator light "G" will go out: this means
all the settings have been cancelled. You are now free to reset the correct wash cycle.
Warning: if opening the door soon after the end of the
programme,or during it, stand away from the Dishwasher,
to avoid possible injury from hot steam
Wash Cycle Adjustement Button
"1/2 LOAD" Button
This button (see "Close-up View - Control Panel", letter "N")
makes it possible to wash dishes using only the upper rack if
there are not enough dishes for a full load. This will allow
you to save on water and electrical energy.
It can be used before setting any of the wash cycles.
Please keep in mind that the amount of detergent should
also be cut in half.

Energy Saving Tips
- It is important to try and run the dishwasher when it is
fully loaded in order to save on energy. In order to prevent
odors from forming and food from caking onto the dishes,
you can run the hold cycle.
- Choose the right wash cycle: the choice of cycle depends
on the type of dishware, cookware and utensils being
washed and how dirty they are.
- Use the right amount of detergent: if you use too much
detergent, the result will not be cleaner dishes, but, rather,
a greater negative impact on the environment.
- There is no utility in rinsing dishes, cookware and utensils
before placing them in the dishwasher.
How to Keep Your Dishwasher in Shape
After Every Wash
After every wash, turn off the water supply to the appliance
and leave the door slightly ajar so that moisture and odors
are not trapped inside.
Remove the Plug
Before cleaning or performing maintenance, always remove
the plug from the socket. Do not run risks.
No 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.
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.
When You Go on Holiday
When you go on holiday, it is recommended 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 ajar. This will help
the seals last longer and prevent odors 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
One of the factors that cause odors to form in the
dishwasher is food that remains trapped in the seals. Periodic
cleaning with a damp sponge will prevent this from occuring.
Cleaning and Special Maintenance
Filter Assembly
If you want consistent good results from your dishwasher,
you need to clean the filter assembly.
The food particles
are removed from
the wash water,
allowing it to be
recirculated during
the cycle, filtered
perfectly. For this
reason, it is a good
idea to remove the
particles trapped
inside the cup “C” and the semi-circular filter A after each
wash; pull the cup handle upwards to remove them. Just
rinse them under running water.
The entire filter assembly should be cleaned thoroughly once
a month: cup C + semi-circular filter A + cylindrical filter B.
Rotate filter “B” anticlockwise to remove it.
For cleaning, use a non metallic brush.
Reassemble the filter parts (as shown in the figure) and
reinsert the whole
assembly into the
dishwasher. Position it
into its housing and
press downwards.
The dishwasher is not
to be used without
replacement of the
filters may reduce the
efficiency of the wash and even damage your dishwasher.
Cleaning the Sprayer Arms
It may happen that food particle become encrusted on the
sprayer arms and block the holes (see "Close up view
(interior)", letters F-I). Check the sprayer arms periodically
and clean them when needed.
Cleaning the Water Inlet Filter
Periodically clean the water inlet filter (see figure 2 under
"Installation") located on the outlet of the water supply
tap. After turning off the water tap, unscrew the end of
the water supply hose, remove the filter and clean it carefully
under running water. Then, return the filter to its place and
tighten the water supply hose back into position.
It may occur that the dishwasher does not function or does
not function properly. Before calling for assistance, let us
see what can be done first: have you forgot to press one of
the buttons or to perform an essential operation?
The Dishwasher Does Not Start
Have you checked whether:
- the plug is pushed into the socket correctly;
- the power is on in the house;
- the door is closed properly;
- the ON-OFF switch is on "ON";
- the water supply is turned on.
The Dishwasher Does Not Load Water
Have you checked whether:
- the water is turned on and the hose is connected properly;
- the water supply to the house is on and has sufficient
- the water supply hose is crimped or bent;
- the filter for the water supply hose is clogged.
The Dishes Are Not Clean
Have you put the right amount of detergent into the
Is the wash cycle suitable for the dishes you have placed
inside the appliance?
Are the filter and microfilter clean?
Can the sprayer arms turn freely?
The Dishwasher Does Not Drain
Have you checked whether:
- the drain hose is crimped or bent.
Lime Deposits or a White Film Form on the Dishes
Have you checked whether:
- the lid to the salt container is closed properly;
- the rinse aid dosage is correct.
Error messages
Your dishwasher is equipped with a safety system which is
able to detect any operating anomalies. These anomalies
are reported by one or two cycle phase indicator lights "G"
flashing rapidly. Take a note of which lights are flashing,
turn the appliance off and call for technical assistance.
Tap off alarm
If you have forgotten to turn the water tap on, your appliance
will remind you of this by sounding a few short beeps for a
few minutes. Turn the tap on and your appliance will start
up again after a few minutes. Were you to be absent when
these beeps are sounded, the appliance will be blocked
automatically and cycle phase 2 and 3 indicator lights (wash
and rinses) will flash rapidly. Turn the appliance off at the
ON-OFF button, turn on the water tap and wait
approximately 20 seconds before turning the appliance back
on, now the program will start.
If, despite all these checks, the dishwasher still does not
function and/or the problem persists, contact the nearest
authorised service centre and provide them with the
following information:
- the nature of the problem;
- the model type number (Mod. ...) and the serial number
(S/N ....), which are indicated on the plate located on the
side of the inner part of the door.
Never call on unauthorised technicians and refuse to
allow parts to be installed that are not original spare
Positioning the Appliance
Position the appliance in the desired location. The back
should rest against the wall behind it, and the sides, along
the adjacent cabinets or wall. The dishwasher is equipped
with water supply and drain hoses that can be positioned
to the right or the left to facilitate proper installation.
Levelling the Appliance
Once the appliance is positioned, adjust the feet (screwing
them in or out) to adjust the height of the dishwasher,
making it level. In any case, the appliance should not be
inclined more than 2°.
If the appliance is level, it will help ensure proper performance.
This dishwasher model can be built-in under the one
worktop, and it therefore comes provided with an assembly
kit complete with an instructions sheet.
Cold Water Connection
Connect the cold water supply hose to a threaded 3/4 (gas)
connector, inserting the small filter supplied with the
dishwasher and making sure
that it is fastened tightly in
place (see figure 2).
If the water pipes are new or
have not been used for an
extended period of time, let the
water run to make sure that the
water is clear and free of
impurities. If this precaution is
not taken, there is a risk that
F ig.2
the water inlet can get blocked
and damage the appliance.
Hot Water Connection
The water supply to the appliance can also be connected to
the house's hot water line (centralised system, heating
system), as long as it does not exceed a temperature of 60°
In this case, the wash cycle time will be shortened by about
15 minutes and the wash efficiency slightly reduced.
The connection must be made to the hot water line following
the same procedures as those for the connection to the cold
water line.
Drain Hose Connection
Insert the drain hose into a
drain pipe with a minimum
diameter of 4 cm., or let it run
into the sink, making sure to
avoid bending or crimping it.
Use the speical plastic support
that comes with the appliance
(see figure to the right). The
free end of the hose must be
at a height between 40 and
100 cm.and must not be
immersed in water.
Attention: The special plastic hose support must be solidly
fastened to the wall to prevent the drain hose from moving
and allowing water to spill outside the drain.
Electrical Connection
After making sure that the voltage and frequency values
for the current in the home correspond to those on the
rating plate (located on the stainless steel inner door of the
appliance) and that the electrical system is sized for the
maximum voltage on the rating plate, insert the plug into
an electrical socket which is earthed properly (the earthing
of the appliance is a safety requirement mandated by law).
If the electrical socket to which the appliance must be
connected is not appropriate for the plug, replace the plug,
rather than using adpators or the like as they could cause
overheating and burns.
Should the electricity supply cable be damaged, we
recommend that you only contact authorised Technical
Service Centres for the replacement.
