First use
Before using your dishwasher for the first time:
• Ensure that the electrical and water connections comply with the installation instructions
• Remove all packaging from inside the appliance
• Set the water softener
• Pour 1 litre of water inside the salt container and then fill with dishwasher salt
• Fill the rinse aid dispenser
If you want to use combi detergent tablets such as: "3 in 1", "4 in 1", "5 in 1" etc... set the
Multi-tab function (see "Multi-tab function").
Set the water softener
The dishwasher is equipped with a water softener designed to remove minerals and salts
from the water supply, which would have a detrimental or adverse effect on the operation
of the appliance.
The higher the content of these minerals and salts, the harder your water is. Water hardness
is measured in equivalent scales, German degrees (°dH), French degrees (°TH) and mmol/l
(millimol per litre - international unit for the hardness of water).
The softener should be adjusted according to the hardness of the water in your area. Your
local Water Authority can advise you on the hardness of the water in your area.
The water softener must be set in both ways: manually, using the water hardness dial and
electronically.

Use of dishwasher salt
WARNING!
Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers. All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in a dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water
softener. Only fill with salt just before starting one of the complete washing programmes.
This will prevent any grains of salt or salty water, which may have been spilt, remaining on
the bottom of the machine for any period of time, which may cause corrosion.
To fill:
1. Open the door, remove the lower basket and unscrew the cap of the salt container by
turning it anticlockwise.
2. Pour 1 litre of water inside the container (this is necessary only before filling with
salt for the first time) .
Use of rinse aid
9
3. Using the funnel provided, pour in the salt
until the container is full.
4. Replace the cap making sure that there is
no trace of salt on the screw thread or on
the gasket.
5. Replace the cap tightly turning it clockwise until it stops with a click.
Do not worry if water overflows from the unit
when filling with salt, this is quite normal.
The salt indicator light on the control panel can remain illuminated for 2-6 hours after the
salt has been replenished, assuming the dishwasher remains switched on. If you are using
salts that take longer to dissolve then this can take longer. The function of the machine is
not affected.
Use of rinse aid
WARNING!
Only use branded rinse aid for dishwashers.
Never fill the rinse aid dispenser with any other substances (e.g. dishwasher cleaning agent,
liquid detergent). This would damage the appliance.
Rinse aid ensures thorough rinsing, and spot and streak free drying.
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse.
1. Open the container by pressing the release
button (A).
10
Daily use
2. Add the rinse aid in the container. The
maximum level for filling is indicated by
"max".
The dispenser holds about 110 ml of rinse
aid, which is sufficient for between 16 and
40 dishwashing cycles, depending upon
the dosage setting.
3. Ensure that the lid is closed after every refill.
Clean up any rinse aid spilt during filling with
an absorbent cloth to avoid excess foaming
during the next wash.
Adjusting the dosage of rinse aid
According to the finish and drying results obtained, adjust the dose of rinse aid by means
of the 6 position selector (position 1= minimum dosage, position 6= maximum dosage).
The dose is factory set in position 4.
Increase the dose if there are drops of water or lime
spots on the dishes after washing.
Reduce it if there are sticky whitish streaks on the
dishes or a bluish film on glassware or knife blades.

3 seconds in which you can choose another programme or select a delay start, after which
the selected programme will start automatically.
Cancelling the "delay start" and / or a washing programme
• To cancel a delay start in progress you have to reset the dishwasher.
• Cancelling a delay start involves also the cancelling of the washing programme set. In
this case you have to set the washing programme again. If a new washing programme
is to be selected, check that there is detergent in the detergent dispenser.
WARNING!
Interrupt or cancel a washing programme in progress ONLY if it's absolutely necessary.
Attention! Hot steam may escape when the door is opened. Open the door carefully.
Interrupt a washing programme in progress:
• Open the dishwasher door; the programme will stop. Close the door; the programme will
start from the point at which it was interrupted.
• Press the On/Off button, all lights will turn off. Press the On/Off button again; the programme will start from the point at which it was interrupted.
End of the washing programme

1. Switch off the dishwasher by pressing the On/Off button.
2. Open the dishwasher door, leave it ajar and wait a few minutes before removing the
dishes; in this way they will be cooler and the drying will be improved.
Unloading the dishwasher
• Hot dishes are sensitive to knocks.
The dishes should therefore be allowed to cool down before removing from the appliance.
• Empty the lower basket first and then the upper one; this will avoid water dripping from
the upper basket onto the dishes in the lower one.
• Water may appear on the sides and the door of the dishwasher as the stainless steel will
eventually become cooler than the dishes.
CAUTION!
When the washing programme has finished, it is recommended that the dishwasher is
unplugged and the water tap turned off.

Installation instructions
Installation
WARNING!
Any electrical and/or plumbing work required to install this appliance should be carried out
by a qualified electrician and/or plumber or competent person.
Remove all packaging before positioning the machine.
If possible, position the machine next to a water tap and a drain.
Fitting under a counter (kitchen worktop or sink)
By removing the machine's worktop, you can install it under a close fitting sink unit or a
pre-existing top, providing the dimensions of the recess correspond to those shown in the
picture.
Proceed as follows:
1. Remove the machine's worktop by unscrewing the two rear retaining screws,
pull the worktop from the back of the machine and slide out the front slots, lifting
the worktop.
2. Insert the machine after adjusting the levelling with the adjustable feet.
When inserting the machine, ensure that the water inlet and drain hoses are not kinked or
squashed.
During all operations that involve accessibility to internal components the dishwasher has
to be unplugged.
Be sure that once the appliance has been installed, it is easily accessible for the service
engineer in the event that a repair is required.
If the dishwasher is later used as a free-standing appliance, the original worktop must be
re-mounted.
The plinth on free-standing appliances is not adjustable.
Water connection
27
Levelling
Good levelling is essential for correct closure and sealing of the door. When the appliance
is correctly levelled, the door will not catch on either side of the cabinet. If the door does
not close correctly, loosen or tighten the adjustable feet until the machine is perfectly level.
Water connection
Water supply connections
Connection to a cold water supply is advised. If connection is made to a hot water supply
the maximum permissible temperature is 60°C. A hot water supply is not always efficient
with very soiled crockery as it shortens the washing programmes a lot.
For making the connection itself, the coupling nut fitted to the machine's supply hose is
designed to screw onto a 3/4" gas thread spout or to a purpose made quick-coupling tap
such as the Press-block.
The water pressure must be within the limits given in the "Technical specifications". Your
local Water Authority will advise you on the average mains pressure in your area.
The water inlet hose must not be kinked, crushed, or entangled when it is being connected.
The dishwasher features fill and drain hoses which can be turned either to the left or the
right to suit the installation by means of the locknut.
The locknut must be correctly fitted to avoid water leaks.
(Attention! NOT all models of dishwashers have fill and drain hoses provided with locknut.
In this case, this kind of facility is not possible). If the machine is connected to new pipes
or pipes which have not been used for a long time, you should run the water for a few
minutes before connecting the inlet hose.
DO NOT use connection hoses which have previously been used for an old appliance.
This appliance has been fitted with safety features which will prevent the water used in
the appliance from returning back into the drinking water system. This appliance complies
with the applicable plumbing regulations.
Water inlet hose with safety valve
After connecting the double-walled water inlet hose, the safety valve is next to the tap.
Therefore the water inlet hose is only under pressure while the water is running. If the
water inlet hose starts to leak during this operation, the safety valve cuts off the running
water.
Please take care when installing the water inlet hose:
• The electrical cable for the safety valve is in the double-walled water inlet hose. Do not
immerse the water inlet hose or the safety valve in water.
• If water inlet hose or the safety valve is damaged, remove the mains plug immediately.
• A water inlet hose with safety valve must only be replaced by a specialist or by the Service
Force Centre.

Water connection
WARNING!
Warning! Dangerous voltage.
Water outlet hose connection
The end of the drain hose can be connected in the following ways:
1. To the sink outlet spigot, securing it to the underside of the work surface. This will
prevent waste water from the sink running into the machine.
2. To a stand pipe provided with vent-hole, minimum internal diameter 4 cm.
The waste connection must be at a height of between 30 cm (minimum) and 100 cm (maximum)
from the bottom of the dishwasher.
The drain hose can face either to the right or left
of the dishwasher.
Ensure the hose is not bent or squashed as this
could prevent or slow down the discharge of water.
The sink plug must not be in place when the machine is draining as this could cause the water to
syphon back into the machine.
If you use a drain hose extension it must be no longer than 2 metres and its internal diameter
must be no smaller than the diameter of the hose provided.
Likewise the internal diameter of the couplings used for connections to the waste outlet
must be no smaller than the diameter of the hose provided.
When connecting the drain hose to an under sink
trap spigot, the entire plastic membrane (A)
must be removed. Failure to remove all the membrane will result in food particles building up over
time eventually blocking the dishwasher drain
hose spigot.
Our appliances are supplied with a security device
to protect against the return of dirty water back
into the machine. If the spigot of your sink has a
"no return valve" incorporated this can prevent
the correct draining of your dishwasher. We therefore advise you to remove it.
Electrical connection
29
To avoid water leakage after installation make sure that the water couplings are tight.
Electrical connection
WARNING!
Safety standards require the appliance to be earthed.
Prior to using the appliance for the first time, ensure that the rated voltage and type of
supply on the rating plate match that of the supply where the appliance is to be installed.
The fuse rating is also to be found on the rating plate.
Always plug the mains plug into a correctly installed shockproof socket. Multi-way plugs,
connectors and extension cables must not be used.
This could constitute a fire hazard through overheating.
If necessary, have the domestic wiring system socket replaced. In case that the electrical
cable has to be replaced, contact your local Service Force centre.
The plug must be accessible after the appliance has been installed.
Never unplug the appliance by pulling on the cable. Always pull the plug.
The manufacturer accepts no liability for failure to observe the above safety precautions.
