Your New Dishwasher
●
Multi-tab function allows the use of the combi detergent tablets with a combined cleaning, rinsing and salt function
(“3 in 1”,“4 in 1” etc...). (Note, areas with particularly high water hardness levels may not be suitable for this type of
detergent. Refer to the detergent manufacturers instructions).
●
Delay start: Control when your dishwasher begins the wash, to enable, for example, the use of economical overnight

2. Remove the lower basket from the dishwasher.
3. Turn the water hardness dial to position 1 or 2 (see table).
The dishwasher is factory
set at position 2.
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.

b) Setting electronically
Filling with dishwasher salt
The dishwasher must be switched off
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.
NOTE: the electronic setting of the water softener is
possible ONLY with the Multi-tab function deactivated.
The dishwasher is factory set at level 5.
1. Press the On/Off button.The indicator lights of the
programme selection buttons will illuminate (setting mode).
If only one programme selection button indicator light is
illuminated this means that a washing programme is set.
The programme must be cancelled: press simultaneously function
buttons 2 and 3 for about 2 seconds, the indicator light of the set
programme button starts flashing.After about 2 seconds the
indicator lights of all the programme selection buttons will
illuminate; this means that the set washing programme has been
cancelled and the machine is now in setting mode.
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).
2. Press simultaneously function buttons 2 and 3, until the
indicator lights of function buttons 1, 2, 3 and 4 start flashing.
3. Using the funnel
provided, pour in the salt
until the container is full.
3. Press function button 1, the indicator lights of function
buttons 2, 3 and 4 turn off while the indicator light of function
button 1 goes on flashing, the digital display indicates the
current level and a sequence of intermittent audible signals are
heard. The current level is indicated by the number visible in
the display and the number of intermittent audible signals
heard.
Example:
displayed + 5 audible signals = level 5.
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.
4. To change the level, press function button 1. Each time the
button is pressed the level changes. (For the selection of the
new level see the chart).
Examples:
if the current level is 5, by pressing function button 1 once,
level 6 is selected.
if the current level is 10, by pressing function button 1 once,
level 1 is selected.
The salt container will require topping up periodically.You are
reminded of this by the salt indicator light on the control panel
which comes on when the salt has finished.
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.
5. To memorise the operation, switch off the dishwasher by
pressing the On/Off button or wait about 60 seconds after
which the dishwasher will automatically return to setting
mode.
Do not worry if water over flows from the unit when filling with
salt, this is quite normal.
10
Rinse aid
Adjusting the dose
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring
thorough rinsing, and spot and streak free drying.
The dispenser, which is positioned inside the door, holds about
110 ml of rinse aid, which is sufficient for 16 - 40 dishwashing
programmes, depending upon the dosage setting.
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.
Filling with rinse aid
1. Open the container by
pressing the release
button (A).
2. Add the rinse aid until
the container is
completely full.
The maximum level for
filling is indicated by
"max".
Top up the rinse aid when the indicator light on the
control panel illuminates.
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.
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.
11
In Daily Use
●
Check if it’s necessary to refill with dishwasher salt or
rinse aid
●
Load cutlery and dishes into the dishwasher.
●
Fill with dishwasher detergent .
●
Select a wash programme suitable for the cutlery and dishes.
●
Start the wash programme.
Loading cutlery and dishes
Sponges, household cloths and any object that can
absorb water may not be washed in the dishwasher.
●
Before loading the dishes, you should:
Remove all left over food and debris.
Soften remnants of burnt food in pans
●
When loading the dishes and cutlery, please note:
- Dishes and cutlery must not impede the rotation of the
spray arms .
- Load hollow items such as cups, glasses, pans, etc. with the
opening downwards so that water cannot collect in the
container or a deep base.
- Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another,
or cover each other.
- To avoid damage to glasses, they must not touch.
- Lay small objects in the cutlery basket.
●
Plastic items and pans with teflon have a tendency to
retain water drops; these items will not dry as well as
porcelain and steel items.
For washing in the dishwasher the following cutlery/dishes
are not suitable:
are of limited suitability:
- Cutlery with wooden, horn, china or mother-of-pearl handles
- Plastic items that are not heat resistant
- Older cutlery with glued parts that is not temperature
resistant
- Bonded cutlery items or dishes
- Pewter or copper items
- Lead crystal glass
- Steel items prone to rusting
- Wooden platters
- Items made from synthetic fibres
- Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it is specifically
marked as being dishwasher-safe by the manufacturer.
- Glazed patterns may fade if machine washed frequently
- Silver and aluminium parts have a tendency to discolour
during washing. Residues, e.g. egg white, egg yolk and mustard
often cause discolouring and staining on silver.
Therefore always clean left-overs from silver immediately, if
it is not to be washed straight after use.
- Some types of glass can become dull after a large number
of washes
12
Open the door and slide out the baskets to load the dishes.
The cutlery basket
The lower basket
Long bladed knives stored in an upright position
are a potential hazard.
Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving
knives must be positioned horizontally in the
upper basket.
Take care when loading or unloading sharp items
such as knives.
The lower basket is designed to take saucepans, lids, plates, salad
bowls, cutlery etc.
Forks and spoons should be placed in the removable cutlery
basket with the handles facing downwards and the knives with
their handles facing upwards.
If the handles protrude from the bottom of the basket,
obstructing the lower spray arm, load the cutlery with the
handles facing upwards.
Mix spoons with other cutlery to prevent them from sticking
together.
For best results we recommend you to use the cutlery grid
provided (if the size and dimensions of the cutlery allow it).
Serving dishes and large lids should be arranged around the edge
of the basket, ensuring that the spray arms can turn freely.
The two rows of prongs on the lower basket can be easily
lowered to allow you to load pots, pans and bowls.
13
The upper basket
Adjusting the height of the upper
basket
The upper basket is designed for plates (dessert plates, saucers,
dinner plates of up to 24 cm in diameter), salad bowls, cups and
glasses.
Arrange items on and
underneath the cup racks so
that water can reach all
surfaces.
For taller items, the cup
racks can be folded
upwards.
Light items (plastic bowls
etc.) must be loaded in the
upper basket and arranged
so they do not move.
If washing very large plates you can load them in the lower basket
after moving the upper basket to the higher position.
Maximum height of the dishes in
upper basket
lower basket
With upper basket raised
20 cm
31 cm
With upper basket lowered
24 cm
27 cm
To move to the higher position proceed as
follows:
1. Pull out the basket until it stops.
2. Carefully lift both sides upwards until the mechanism is
engaged and the basket is stable.
Attention!
Never lift or lower the
basket on one side only
For glasses with long stems
(according to the size and
dimensions), upset the glass
holder to the left-hand or
right-hand position.
In case you need to load
dishes in the upper basket,
the glass holder must be in
the right-hand position.
When the basket is in
the higher position you
will not be able to use
the cup rack(s).
To lower the basket to the original position
proceed as follows:
1. Pull out the basket until it stops.
2. Carefully lift both sides upwards and then allow the
mechanism to drop back down slowly, keeping hold of it.
After loading your machine always close the door,
as an open door can be a hazard.
In case that plates are loaded in the upper
basket:
load them starting from
the rear positions of the
basket; tilting them
slightly forwards and
avoiding the front
positions near the door.
Before closing the door, ensure that the spray
arms can rotate freely.
14
Use of detergent
Only use detergents specifically designed for use
in dishwashers.
Using no more than the correct amount of
detergent contributes to reducing pollution.
Please observe the manufacturer’s dosing and
storage recommendations as stated on the
detergent packaging.
Fill with detergent
1. If the lid is closed: press release button (1).The lid springs
open.
2. Fill the detergent dispenser (2) with detergent.
The marking indicates the dosing levels:
20 = approximately 20 g of detergent
30 = approximately 30 g of detergent
3. All programmes with prewash need an additional
detergent dose (5/10 g) that must be placed in the
prewash detergent chamber (3).This detergent will take
effect during the prewash phase.
4. Close the lid and press until it locks in place.
15
Different Kinds of Detergent
Detergent tablets
Use of "3 in 1" combi detergents
Detergent tablets from different manufactures dissolve at
different rates. For this reason, some detergent tablets do not
attain their full cleaning power during short washing programmes.
Therefore please use long washing programmes when using
detergent tablets, to ensure the complete removal of detergent
residuals.
These products are detergents with a combined cleaning, rinsing
and salt function.
1. Check whether these detergents are suitable for your water
hardness. Follow the manufacturers instructions.
2. Set the "Multi-tab" function.
3. Before the start of the washing programme put the "3 in
1" detergent in the detergent dispenser.
Concentrated detergent
NOTE: If the drying results are not satisfactory we
recommend that you:
Modern detergents for dishwashers are almost exclusively lowalkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes in tablet
form.
Using 50°C washing programmes in conjunction with these
concentrated detergents reduces pollution and is good for your
dishes, as these washing programmes are specially matched to the
dirt-dissolving properties of the enzymes in concentrated
detergents. It is for this reason that using 50°C washing
programmes in conjunction with concentrated detergents can
achieve the same cleaning results that can otherwise only be
achieved using 65°C washing programmes.
1. Fill up the rinse aid dispenser with rinse aid.
2. Activate the rinse aid dispenser and set the rinse aid
dosage to position 2.
If you decide to turn back to the use of the
standard detergent system we advise that you:
●
Deactivate the "Multi-tab" function.
●

(3) Testing programme for EN 50242 (see "Hints for Test
Centres").This programme, developed for the use of
detergents with enzymes, allows you to achieve, with reduced
consumption of energy the same cleaning results that would
otherwise be obtained only with the 65°C programmes and
conventional detergents.To compensate the lower
temperature, the duration of washing and drying have been
extended.
(1) "Automatic" washing programme
During the "Automatic" washing programme the amount of
soil on the dishes is determined by how cloudy the water is.
If the appliance is partially loaded and the dishes lightly soiled,
the "prewash", "main wash", and "rinse" phases of the
programme are shorter and the water consumption level is
lower.
If the appliance is fully loaded and the dishes heavily soiled,
the "prewash", "main wash", and "rinse" phases of the
programme are longer and the water consumption level is
higher.
During the "Automatic" programme the temperature of the
main wash water is also automatically adjusted between 50°C
and 65°C depending on the amount of soil on the dishes.
(4) The consumption values are intended as a guide and depends
on the pressure and the temperature of the water and also
by the variations of the power supply.
The programme duration is visible in the display when the
setting of the programme occurs.
(2) Ideal for washing crockery and cutlery of breakfast and
dinner (fresh soil).
Characterised by a short duration.
This is the perfect daily programme, made to meet the needs
of a family of 4 persons who only wish to load breakfast and
dinner crockery and cutlery.

Starting a Washing Programme
5. To interrupt or cancel a washing
programme in progress
In this fully integrated appliance the controls are located on the
top of the door.When selecting a programme, the door needs to
be open.
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.
1. Check that the baskets have
been loaded correctly and that
the spray arms can rotate freely

Open the dishwasher door.
Press simultaneously function buttons 2 and 3 for about 2
seconds, the indicator light of the button corresponding to
the running programme starts flashing.After about 2
seconds the indicator lights of all the programme selection
buttons will illuminate, this means that the running
programme has been cancelled and that the machine has
returned to setting mode.
If a new washing programme is to be selected, check that
there is detergent in the detergent dispenser.
4. Setting and starting the
programme
To select a programme, press the button of the
programme you wish to select (see "Washing
programmes" chart).
The corresponding indicator light remains illuminated
while the other programme buttons indicator lights turn
off. In the digital display will appear, flashing, the running
time (in minutes) of the programme that has been set.

the dishwasher’s door.This optical signal will remain
illuminated for all the duration of the washing programme.
If the appliance has been installed higher up with a
furniture door mounted flush, the optical signal will be no
longer visible.
18
8. 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.
When the washing programme has finished, it is
recommended that the dishwasher is unplugged and the
water tap turned off.
19
Maintenance and Cleaning
Clean the external surfaces of the machine and control panel
with a damp soft cloth. If necessary use only neutral detergents.
Never use abrasive products, scouring pads or solvent (acetone,
trichloroethylene etc....).
Ensure that the seals around the door, the detergent and rinse aid
dispensers are cleaned regularly with a damp cloth.
We recommend every 3 months to run a 65°C wash programme
without dishes using detergent.
8. Place the coarse filter (A) in the microfilter (B) and press
together.
9. Put the filter combination in place and lock by turning the
handle clockwise to the stop. During this process ensure
that the flat filter does not protrude above the base of the
washing compartment.
Attention!
Under no circumstances may the dishwasher be used
without filters. Incorrect repositioning and fitting of the
filters will produce poor washing results.
Cleaning the filters
The filters must be checked and cleaned from time to time. Dirty
filters will degrade the washing result.
NEVER try to remove the upper spray arm.
If residues of soil have
clogged the holes in the
upper spray arm, remove
them with a cocktail stick.
1. Open the door, remove the lower basket.
2. The dishwasher filter system comprises a coarse filter (A),
a microfilter (B) and a flat filter (C).

Water supply connections
Water outlet hose connection
We recommend that this dishwasher is connected to your cold
water supply.
For making the connection itself, the coupling nut fitted to the
machine’s supply hose is designed to screw onto either a 3/4"
inch 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 up.
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.
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. Hooked over the edge of the sink using the special curved
plastic guide (if provided with the machine).
3. 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.
Attention!
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.
24
