Installation instructions
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.
Water supply connections
This dishwasher may be fed with either hot (max. 60°) or cold
water. Nevertheless we advise you a cold water supply.
A hot water supply is not always efficient with very soiled
crockery as it shortens the washing programmes a lot.
Remove all packaging before positioning the machine.
If possible, position the machine next to a water tap and a
drain.
For making the connection itself, the coupling nut fitted to the
machine’s supply hose is designed to screw onto a 3/4" inch
gas thread spout or to a purpose made quick-coupling tap
such as the Press-block.
Building-in
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.
This dishwasher is designed to be fitted under a kitchen
counter or worksurface.
Attention!
Carefully follow the instructions on the enclosed template for
building in the dishwasher and fitting the furniture panel.
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).
No further openings for the venting of the dishwasher are
required, but only to let the water fill and drain hose and power
supply cable pass through.
The dishwasher incorporates adjustable feet to allow the
adjustment of the height.
During all operations that involve accessibility to internal
components the dishwasher has to be unplugged.
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.
When inserting the machine, ensure that the water inlet hose,
the drain hose and the supply cable are not kinked or
squashed.
Do not use, for connection, old hoses which have been
used with another appliance.
The dishwasher is fitted with safety devices that prevent the
wash water returning into the drinking water system and
comply with the applicable plumbing regulations.
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.
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.
If the door does not close correctly, loosen or tighten the
adjustable feet until the machine is perfectly level.
Fixing to the adjacent units
Please take care when installing the water inlet hose:
The dishwasher must be secured against tilting.
Therefore make sure that the counter it is fixed under, is
suitably secured to a fixed structure (adjacent kitchen units
cabinets, wall).
- The electrical cable for the safety valve is in the doublewalled 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.
- Place the water inlet hose in such a way that it is never
higher than the bottom edge of the safety valve.
21
Water outlet hose connection
Electrical connection
The end of the drain hose can be connected in the following
ways:
Information concerning the electrical connection is given on the
rating plate on the edge of the dishwasher’s door.
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.
Before plugging the appliance into the wall socket, make sure
that:
1. The mains voltage and current rating at the site of
installation match the nominal voltage and current rating
given on the rating plate.
2. To a stand pipe provided with vent-hole, minimum internal
diameter 4 cm.
2. The meter, fuses, mains power supply and wall socket can
all take the maximum load required. Make sure that the
socket and plug are compatible without having to use any
type of adaptor. If necessary, have the domestic wiring
system socket replaced.
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.
To isolate the dishwasher from mains, remove the mains plug.
Important!
The plug must still be accessible after the appliance
has been installed.
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.
In case that the electrical cable has to be replaced,
please contact your local Service Force Centre.
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.
The appliance should not be connected to the
electrical supply by means of an extension cable.
Safety standards require the appliance to be
earthed.
The manufacture accepts no liability for failure to
observe the above safety precautions.
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 advise you therefore to remove it.

NOTE:
If you want to use the "3 in 1" combi detergents, read
carefully the informations given in "Different kinds of
detergents".
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.
2. Press and keep pressed the programme selection/cancel
button until programme indicator light 1 flashes and
programme indicator light 2 illuminates with a fixed light.
Wait until programme indicator light 2 turns off, programme
indicator light 1 goes on flashing and simultaneously the

This indicates that you have activated the electronic setting
function of the water softener.
The current level is indicated by a sequence of flashes of
the end of programme indicator light, a sequence of
intermittent audible signals and a pause of a few seconds
(see chart).
Example: 5 flashes/5 audible signals + pause +
5 flashes/5 audible signals etc...= level 5
The water softener must be set in both ways: manually, using
the water hardness dial and electronically, by the means of the
programme selection/cancel button.

Use of
salt
Filling with dishwasher salt
Rinse aid
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.
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 between16 and 40
dishwashing cycles, depending upon the dosage setting.
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".
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).
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.
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.
5. Replace the cap tightly
turning it clockwise until it
stops with a click.
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.
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.
Adjusting the dose
Do not worry if water over flows from the unit when filling with
salt, this is quite normal.
Increase the dose if there are
drops of water or lime spots
on the dishes after washing.
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.
Reduce it if there are sticky
whitish streaks on the dishes
or a bluish film on glassware
or knife blades.
Top up the rinse aid when the
indicator (B) becomes clear.

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 large left-overs.
- 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 of limited suitability:
are not suitable:
- Cutlery with wooden, horn, china or
mother-of-pearl handles
- Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it is specifically
marked as being dishwasher-safe by the manufacturer.
- Plastic items that are not heat resistant
- Glazed patterns may fade if machine washed frequently
- Older cutlery with glued parts that are not temperature
resistant
- 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.
- Bonded cutlery items or dishes
- Pewter or copper items
- Lead crystal glass
- Some types of glass can become dull after a large number
of washes
- Steel items prone to rusting
- Wooden platters
- Items made from synthetic fibres
Open the door and slide out the baskets to load the dishes.
The cutlery 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
The lower basket is designed to take saucepans, lids, plates,
salad bowls, cutlery etc.
Serving dishes and large lids should be arranged around the
edge of the basket, ensuring that the spray arms can turn
freely.
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).
27
The upper basket
Use of detergent
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.
Glasses with long stems can
be placed upside down in the
cup racks.
Light items (plastic bowls
etc.) must be loaded in the
upper basket and arranged
so they do not move.
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
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.
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.
Adjusting the height of the upper basket
4. Close the lid and press until it locks in place.
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

To move to the higher position proceed as
follows:
1. Move the front runner stops (A) of the upper basket
outwards and slide the basket out.
2. Refit the basket in the higher position and replace the stops
(A) in their original position.
When the basket is in the
higher position you will not
be able to use the cup
rack(s).
After loading your machine always close the door, as an
open door can be a hazard.
28
Different kinds of detergent
Detergent tablets
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.
Concentrated detergent
Today’s 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.
Use of "3 in 1" combi detergents
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.
NOTE: the refilling of the salt container and the rinse aid
dispenser are no longer necessary.
In this case the salt and the rinse aid indicator lights will always
remain illuminated when the machine is switched on (not all
dishwasher models are foreseen with salt and rinse aid
indicator lights).
2. Select the lowest setting for water hardness.
3. Before the start of the washing programme put the "3 in 1"
detergent in the detergent dispenser.
NOTE: If the drying results are not satisfactory we recommend
that you:
1. Fill up the rinse aid dispenser with rinse aid.
2. 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:
●
Fill up the dispensers for salt and rinse aid again.
●
Adjust the water hardness setting to the highest setting
perform up to 3 normal washing programmes without
loading any dishes.
●
Adjust the water hardness setting according to the
hardness of the water in your area.
●
Adjust the rinse aid dosage.
NOTE: When using 4 in 1 detergents that integrate also antiglass corrosion agent into "3 in 1" formula, please follow the
same instruction as given for "3 in 1" detergents above.

(1) Ideal for washing crockery and cutlery of breakfast and dinner (fresh soil).
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.
(2) 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.
(3) 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.

Starting a washing programme
In this fully integrated appliance the controls are located on the
top of the door. When selecting a washing programme, the
door needs to be slightly open.
Cancel a washing programme in progress
Open the dishwasher’s door. Press the programme
selection/cancel button for about 3 seconds, until the
indicator light of the running programme and programme
in progress indicator light turn off; the end of programme
indicator light flashes, indicating that the running
programme has been cancelled and that the machine has
returned to setting mode.
It is now possible to select another washing programme.
If a new washing programme is to be selected, check that
there is detergent in the detergent dispenser.
1. Check that the baskets have been
loaded correctly and that the spray
arms can rotate freely
2. Turn on the water tap
NOTE: only during the drying phase, if the dishwasher’s
door will be opened and remains open for more then 30
seconds, the running programme will be automatically
cancelled and the machine will return to setting mode.
This will happen, always only during the drying phase,
also when the machine is switched off by pressing the
On/Off button and remains switched off for more then 30
seconds.
3. Setting and starting the washing
programme
Press the On/Off button.
The end of programme indicator light flashes.
Press the programme selection/cancel button and select
the desired washing programme. To choose the right
washing programme see "Washing programmes" chart).
Close the dishwasher’s door, the programme will start
automatically.
5. End of the washing programme
The dishwasher will automatically stop. An audible signal
informs you of the end of the washing programme.
Open the dishwasher’s 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.
The end of programme indicator light is on.
The programme in progress indicator light is off
The indicator light of the programme just ended is on.
Switch off the dishwasher by pressing the On/Off button.
Setting the "delay start" of a washing
programme
Once the setting of the desired washing programme has
occurred, press the delay start button.
The corresponding indicator light turns on.
Close the dishwasher’s door, the countdown for the delay
start begins automatically.
The opening of the door will not modify or interrupt the
countdown.
6. Unloading the dishwasher
Once the delay start has elapsed the programme will start
automatically.
Hot dishes are sensitive to knocks. The dishes should
therefore be allowed to cool down before removing from
the appliance.
To cancel a "delay start" in progress
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.
Open the dishwasher’s door and press the delay start
button, the corresponding indicator light turns off.
Close the door, the set programme will start automatically.
Water may appear on the sides and the door of the
dishwasher as the stainless steel will eventually become
cooler than the dishes.
NOTE: the start of the washing programme will occur only
after the closure of the door. Until that moment you can
modify the selection made.
When the washing programme has finished, it is
recommended that the dishwasher is unplugged and the
water tap turned off.
4. To interrupt or cancel a washing
programme in progress
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’s door; the programme will stop (the
programme in progress indicator light is illuminated).
Close the door; the programme will start from the
point at which it was interrupted.
31
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.
Attention!
Cleaning the filters
If residues of soil have
clogged the holes in the
upper spray arm, remove
them with a cocktail stick.
Under no circumstances may the dishwasher be used without
filters.
Incorrect repositioning and fitting of the filters will produce
poor washing results.
NEVER try to remove the
upper spray arm.
The filters must be checked and cleaned from time to time.
Dirty filters will degrade the washing result.
Important! Before cleaning the filters ensure that the
machine is switched off.
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).
Unlock the filter system using the handle on the microfilter,
and remove.
Prolonged periods of non-operation
If you are not using the machine for any period of time you are
advised to:
1. Unplug the appliance and then turn off the water.
2. Leave the door ajar to prevent the formation of any
unpleasant smells.
3. Leave the inside of the machine clean.
Frost precautions
Avoid placing the machine in a location where the temperature
is below 0°C. If this is unavoidable, empty the machine, close
the appliance door, disconnect the water inlet pipe and empty
it.
3. Turn the handle about 1/4 a turn anticlockwise and remove.
Moving the machine
If you have to move the machine (moving house etc....):
1. Unplug it.
2. Turn the water tap off.
3. Remove the water inlet and discharge hoses.
4. Pull the machine out together with the hoses.
Avoid over tilting the machine during transportation.
4. Take hold of the coarse filter (A) by the handle with
the hole and remove from the microfilter (B).
5. Clean all filters thoroughly under running water.
6. Remove the flat filter (C) from the base of the washing
compartment and clean both faces thoroughly.
7. Put the flat filter (C) back in the base of the washing
compartment.
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.
