Installation instructions
2. Installation and set-up
Remove the polystyrene basket retainers.
Position the appliance in the desired place of installation. The back or
sides of the dishwasher may be placed up against walls or other
furniture units. If the dishwasher is installed near a heat source, fit the
special insulating panel to prevent overheating and malfunction of the
appliance. To ensure stability, install dishwashers only under continuous
worktops, and screw them to the adjacent units. To facilitate the
installation procedure, the intake and drain hoses can be positioned in
any direction; make sure that the hoses are not kinked, crushed or pulled
too tightly. Make sure to tighten the locking ring-nut once the pipes have
been placed in the direction required. A hole at least 8 cm in diameter is
required to allow the power supply cable and pipes to pass. Before putting
the dishwasher into its final position, turn on the water tap and check that
there are no leaks from the tap connection, the dishwasher connection
or the hose.
Level the appliance on the floor using its adjustable feet. This operation
is essential for ensuring correct operation of the dishwasher.
This models is equipped with only one adjustable foot at the rear, which
can be adjusted by turning the screw on the lower front part of the
appliance.
Building-in a dishwasher underneath a hob is absolutely forbidden.
Moreover, dishwashers may not be installed directly touching
appliances which are not conventional built-in kitchen appliances (e.g.
fireplaces, stoves, etc.).
When installing the dishwasher in a compartment next to one or more
other appliances, it is essential to comply with all the recommendations
provided by the appliance’s manufacturer (minimum distances, installation
procedures, etc.).

Installation instructions
2.1
Water supply connection
Preventing the risk of clogging or damage: if the water pipe is new or
has not been used for a long time, before connecting to the water supply
check that the water is clear and free of impurities, to prevent damage to
the appliance.
The dishwasher must always be connected to the water system
with new hoses; old or used hoses must never be reused.
CONNECTING TO THE WATER SUPPLY
Connect the intake hose to a cold water supply with ¾”
gas thread, inserting the filter A supplied with the
dishwasher. Take care to screw the hose firmly into
place with your hands and then complete by
tightening about ¼ of a turn with pliers.
In dishwashers equipped with the AQUASTOP device,
the filter is already fitted inside the threaded ring.
The dishwasher can also be connected to a hot water supply not
exceeding 60°C . Supplying the appliance with hot water cuts down the
washing time by approximately 20 minutes, but slightly reduces its
effectiveness. Make the connection to the domestic hot water supply using
the same procedure described for connecting to the cold water supply.
DRAIN CONNECTION
Insert the dishwasher’s drain hose
into a drain pipe having a diameter
of at least 4 cm, or alternatively,
place it inside the kitchen sink
using the plastic support provided,
taking care not to crush or
excessively bend the hose. It is
important to prevent the hose from
coming loose and falling. For this
purpose, the plastic support is
equipped with a hole for tying it to
the wall or water tap.
The free end should be positioned at a height of between 30 and 100
cm, and should never be submerged in water. If a horizontal drain
extension hose is used (for a maximum of 3 m) the drain hose can be
placed at a maximum height of 85 cm from the ground.

User instructions
TO SAVE ON ENERGY! … AND PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
•
•
•
•
•
Always try to run the dishwasher fully loaded.
Do not wash the dishes in running water.
Use the washing program that is most appropriate for each type of
load.
Do not carry out any preliminary rinsing.
If available, connect the dishwasher to a hot water supply up to 60°C.
TO CUT DOWN ON DETERGENT CONSUMPTION! … AND PROTECT
THE ENVIRONMENT
The phosphates contained in dishwasher detergents are harmful to the
environment. To avoid using excessive amounts of detergent and to save
on electricity, observe the following:
•
•
separate the more delicate items from dishes that are more resistant
to aggressive detergents and high temperatures;
do not pour the detergent directly on the dishes.
If the door has to be opened while washing is in progress, the program
will be interrupted. The relative light will keep flashing and a beeper will
signal that the cycle has not been completed. You must wait about 1
minute before closing the door to restart the program. When the door is
closed the program will continue from where it was interrupted. This
operation should only be carried out if strictly necessary, because it
might cause problems in execution of the program.
END OF CYCLE
At the end of the washing cycle the

4. Operating instructions
Once the dishwasher has been correctly installed, prepare for use as
follows:
•
•
•
•
4.1
Adjust the water softening system;
Add the regenerating salt;
Adjust the rinse aid dispenser setting;
Add the rinse aid and detergent.
Using the water softening system
The amount of scale contained in the
water (water hardness index) can cause
whitish staining on the dry dishes, which
tend to become dull over time. The
dishwasher is equipped with an automatic
softening system which uses a special
regenerating salt to reduce the hardness
of the water.
The dishwasher is factory set for water
hardness level 3.
SALT
When using water of medium hardness, the regenerating salt container
should be refilled after approximately 20 washing cycles. The salt
container can hold approximately 1.7 kg of salt in grains. The container
is situated at the bottom of the dishwasher. After removing the lower
basket, unscrew the salt container cap by turning it anticlockwise and
pour in the salt using the funnel supplied with the dishwasher. Before
replacing the cap, remove any salt residues from around the opening.
•
When using the dishwasher for the first time, in addition to the salt it
is also necessary to add one litre of water to the container.
•
Each time the salt container is refilled, make sure that the cap is
securely closed. The mixture of water and detergent must never
penetrate the salt container, as this would compromise the operation
of the regeneration system. In the event of this occurring, the
warranty will be invalidated.
•
Only use regenerating salt specially formulated for domestic
dishwashers. If using salt tablets, do not fill the container
completely.
15
User instructions
•
Do not use table salt as it contains insoluble substances which,
over time, may damage the water softening system.
•
When necessary, refill the regenerating salt container before
starting the washing program. In this way, the excess saline
solution will be immediately removed by the water; the prolonged
presence of salt water inside the tank may lead to corrosion.
Be careful not to confuse the salt and detergent packages; adding
detergent to the salt container will damage the water softening system.
ADJUSTING THE WATER SOFTENING SYSTEM
(available in all programs except the soak program)
The dishwasher is equipped with an electronic device for adjusting the
water softening setting according to the hardness of the water. To adjust
the water softening setting, proceed as follows.
•
Keep the PROGRAM DELAY
button pressed for a few
seconds, until the H.- symbol, followed by the set value, appears on
the 3-FIGURE DISPLAY.
•
The PROGRAM DELAY
button can be pressed again to select
the most suitable hardness value (h.-0, h.-1, h.-2…h.-5). Refer to
the "Water hardness table" to select the value.
To exit the programming mode press one button or do not touch the
keypad for 2 seconds.

4.2
Using the rinse aid and detergent dispensers
The detergent and rinse aid
dispensers are situated on the inner
part of the door: the detergent
dispenser is on the left, and the
rinse aid dispenser is on the right.
With the exception of the SOAK program, before every washing cycle it
is necessary to add the required amount of detergent to the detergent
dispenser. The rinse aid, on the other hand, should only be added as
required.
17
User instructions
ADDING THE RINSE AID
The rinse aid helps the dishes dry faster and
prevents the formation of scale deposits and
staining; it is automatically added to the water
during the final rinse cycle, from the container
situated on the inner side of the door.
To add rinse aid:
•
Open the door.
•
Rotate the container cap anticlockwise by ¼ of a turn and remove it.
•
Add the rinse aid until the container is full (approximately 140 cc).
The optical level indicator on the side of the cap should be
completely obscured. Refill the rinse aid when the optical level
indicator becomes clear again, or when the rinse aid warning light
illuminates.
•
Replace the cover and turn it in a clockwise direction.
•
Use a cloth to remove any spillage of rinse aid which might lead to
the formation of excess foam.
ADJUSTING THE RINSE AID DISPENSER SETTING
The dishwasher is factory set for medium water hardness. However it
possible to change the setting by turning the dispenser’s selector to the
desired position: the amount of rinse aid dispensed is proportional to the
selector position.
•
•
•
•
•
18
To adjust the rinse aid setting, rotate the dispenser cap through a
quarter turn in an anticlockwise direction and remove it.
Then use a screwdriver to rotate the rinse aid selector to the desired
position.
Replace the cap, turning it clockwise.
The amount of rinse aid must be increased if the washed dishes
appear dull or feature circular stains.
If, on the other hand, the dishes are sticky or have white streaks, it
is necessary to reduce the rinse aid setting.
User instructions
ADDING THE DETERGENT
To open the detergent dispenser cap, lightly press
the button P. Add the detergent and close the cap
carefully.
During the washing cycle, the dispenser will be
opened automatically.
•
•
•
•
•
•
When a program with hot prewash is selected (see program table),
extra detergent must be placed in the cavity G/H (depending on
models).
Use only detergents specially formulated for dishwashers. For optimal
washing results it is important to use a good quality detergent.
The detergent packs must be sealed and stored in a dry place to
prevent the formation of lumps which may negatively affect washing
results. Once opened the detergent packs should not be kept for too
long, otherwise the detergent loses its effectiveness.
Do not use detergents formulated for washing dishes by hand,
because they produce a great deal of foam and may negatively affect
the operation of the dishwasher.
Add the correct amount of detergent. An insufficient amount of
detergent will result in a partial removal of dirt from the dishes,
whereas an excessive amount is wasteful and does not improve the
washing results.
The market offers liquid and powder detergents with differing chemical
compositions, which may contain phosphates, or be phosphate-free
but contain natural enzymes.
- Detergents containing phosphates are more effective against
grease and starch at temperatures above 60°C .
- Enzyme detergents, on the other hand, are also effective at lower
temperatures (from 40 to 55°C ) and are more easily
biodegradable. With enzyme detergents it is possible to obtain at
low temperatures comparable results to those which can only be
achieved at 65°C using traditional detergents.
For the safeguarding of the environment we recommend the use of
phosphate- and chlorine free detergents.

General warnings and recommendations
Before using the dishwasher for the first time, it is advisable to read the
following recommendations concerning dish types to be washed and
their loading.
There are generally no constraints on the washing of domestic dishes,
but in certain cases it is necessary to take their characteristics into
account.
Before loading the dishes into the baskets it is necessary to:
•
remove coarse food remains: e.g. bones, fish-bones, etc. which
may clog the filter or damage the wash pump.
•
soak any pots or pans with burnt-on food remains on the bottom to
facilitate removal, then load them into the LOWER BASKET.
There is no need to pre-wash the dishes under running water before
loading them into the baskets since this only wastes water.
Correct loading of the dishes helps ensure optimal washing
results.

WARNING!
•
•
•
•
•
•
Make sure that the dishes are securely in place so that they cannot
tip over or obstruct the rotation of the spray arms during the
washing cycle.
Do not place very small objects in the baskets as these could fall
and obstruct the spray arms or the wash pump.
Containers such as cups, bowls, glasses and pots should always
be loaded with the opening facing downwards and with any cavities
at an angle, to allow the water to drain out.
Do not stack dishes or place them in such a way that they cover
one other.
Do not place glasses too close together because they may knock
against each other and break, or there might be staining at the
point where they touch.
Do not put the dishes out of the outer frame of baskets.When
closing a door, dishes may break or a door may not be closed
completely.
MAKE SURE that the items being washed are dishwasher-safe.
Items which are not dishwasher-safe:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Wooden dishes, pots or pans: these may be damaged by the
high washing temperatures.
Handcrafted items: these are rarely suitable for washing in a
dishwasher. The relatively high water temperatures and the
detergents used may damage them.
Plastic dishes: heat resistant plastic dishes must be washed in the
upper basket.
Dishes and objects in copper, tin, zinc or brass: these tend to
stain.
Aluminium dishes: items made from anodised aluminium may
lose their colour.
Silverware: silver items may stain.
Glass and crystal: in general, glass and crystal objects can be
washed in the dishwasher. However, certain types of glass and
crystal may become dull and lose their clearness after many
washings. Therefore, for these items we recommend using the
least aggressive program available.
Decorated items: the decorated objects available on the market
are generally able to withstand washing in the dishwasher,
although the colours may fade after a great many washes. If in
doubt as to the fastness of the colours, it is advisable to wash just a
few items at a time for approximately one month.

Using the baskets
The dishwasher has a capacity of 13 place-settings, including serving
dishes.
LOWER BASKET
The lower basket receives the full force of the lower spray arm, and
should therefore be used for the “toughest” items with a heavier degree
of soiling.
All types and combinations of loads are permitted, provided that the
dishes, pots and pans are arranged with all the soiled surfaces exposed
to the water jets coming from the bottom.
To make the most of the space inside the
basket when loading large items. This model
is equipped with tip-up supports for plates in 4
sections.
BOTTOM BASKET INSERTS
Some models are equipped with bottom basket inserts which improve
the drying of dishes. The inserts are supplied in the accessories bag; to
use them, simply fit them into place as shown.
22
User instructions
LOADING THE LOWER BASKET
Carefully load flat plates, soup plates, dessert and serving dishes,
positioning them vertically. Pots, pans and their covers must be loaded
upside down. When loading soup plates and dessert bowls, be sure to
leave a gap between them.

TOP CUTLERY BASKET
The basket is designed to take cutlery, placed in the spaces provided,
long utensils, positioned lengthwise and small items. The “drawer”
extraction system makes the basket easier to load, but it can also be
taken completely off its runners by removing the retainers (as shown
here). Take great care to replace the retainers to ensure that the basket
does not come off the runners accidentally.
24
User instructions
CUTLERY BASKET
The basket has removable top grids into which items of cutlery should
be inserted to keep them properly spaced and allow water to pass
between them effectively. The top grids and central lid are in the bag of
accessories. The central lid functions as a lid only.
The top grids can be detached and used separately.
The cutlery should be arranged in an orderly manner inside the basket,
with the handles pointing downwards. Take care during loading to avoid
injury from the knife blades. The basket is suitable for all types of cutlery,
except those long enough to interfere with the upper spray arm. Ladles,
wooden spoons and cooking knives can be placed in the upper basket,
making sure that the knife blades do not protrude from the basket.
The cutlery basket slides across the dishwasher and can be placed in
any position to allow optimal use of the space in the bottom basket.
25
User instructions
UPPER BASKET
It is recommended to load the upper basket with small- or medium-sized
items such as glasses, small plates, tea or coffee cups, shallow bowls
and light objects made from heat resistant plastic. If the upper basket is
used in the lowermost position, it can also be loaded with serving dishes,
provided they are only slightly soiled.
LOADING THE UPPER BASKET
Load plates facing forward; cups, bowls etc. must always be facing
downwards. The left side of the basket can be loaded with cups and
glasses on two levels. In the centre section, plates and saucers can be
loaded vertically into the supports provided.

If the program fails to start, check that:
•
•
•
•
the dishwasher is connected to the electrical power supply;
there is no power failure;
the water supply is open;
the dishwasher door is properly closed.
If water remains inside the dishwasher, check that:
•
•
•
the drain hose is not kinked;
the drain siphon is not obstructed;
the dishwasher filters are not clogged.
If the dishes are not being cleaned properly, check that:
•
•
•
•
•
•
the correct amount of detergent has been added;
there is regenerating salt inside the special container;
the dishes are being loaded correctly;
the selected program is suitable for the dish types and their degree
of soiling;
all the filters are clean and positioned correctly;
the spray arm nozzles are not obstructed by any ojects and can

31
User instructions
If the dishes fail to dry or remain dull, check that:
•
•
•
there is rinse aid inside the special container;
the rinse aid dispenser setting is correct;
the detergent used is of good quality and has not lost its
effectiveness (for example, through incorrect storage, with the box
left open).
If the dishes show signs of streaking, staining, etc., check that:
•
the rinse aid dispenser setting is not too high.
If there are visible traces of rust inside the tank:
•
•
•
the tank is made of steel, and therefore any rust marks are due to
external elements (fragments of rust from the water pipes, pots,
cutlery, etc.). Special products are commercially available to remove
such marks;
check that the amount of detergent being used is correct. Certain
detergents can be more corrosive than others.
check that the cap of the salt container is securely closed, and that
the water softening setting is correct.
If after following the above troubleshooting instructions the problem
persists, call the nearest After-Sales Centre.
