Heavy soil
Partial load (to be completed later in the day).
1 cold rinse (to avoid food
scraps from sticking together).
This programme does not
require the use of detergent.
1) Ideal for washing a partially loaded dishwasher. This is 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) Test programme for test institutes.
"Automatic" washing
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
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.
For this reason the programme duration, water
and energy consumption levels can vary within
the stated range for "Automatic" programme
(see "Washing programmes chart").
During the "Automatic" programme the temperature of the main wash water is also auto-
matically adjusted between 50°C and 65°C
depending on the amount of soil on the dishes.
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
When using tablets that integrate rinse aid
and detergent:
there is no need to fill up with rinse aid
– set the water softener
– add special (dishwasher) salt
When using tablets that integrate rinse aid,
detergent, salt function and other additives:
there is no need to fill up with special salt or
rinse aid.
Check whether these detergents are suitable
for your water hardness. Follow the manufacturers instructions.
– Set the water hardness to level 1.
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 in future to use separated detergents, we advise that you:
– Fill up the salt and rinse aid container.
– Adjust the water hardness setting to the
highest level and perform 1 normal washing
programme without loading any dishes.
– Adjust the water hardness setting according
to the hardness of the water in your area.
– Adjust the rinse aid dosage
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, Clarke degrees, 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.

can absorb water may not be washed in the
• 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
– 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 non stick coatings have a tendency to retain water drops;
these items will not dry as well as porcelain
and steel items.
• Light items (plastic bowls etc.) must be loaded in the upper basket and arranged so
they do not move.
For washing in the dishwasher the following cutlery and dishes
are not suitable:
are of limited suitability:
• Cutlery with wooden, horn, china or mother-ofpearls handles.
• Plastic items that are not heat resistant.
• Older cutlery with glued parts that are 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 synthetics fibres.
• Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it is specially 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.
Load cutlery. For best results we recommend you
to use the cutlery grid provided (if the size and dimensions of the cutlery
allow it)
Load the lower basket. Arrange serving dishes and
large lids around the edge
of the basket.
Place knives and other
items of cutlery with sharp
points or edges with their
handles facing upwards.
Risk of injury!
The cutlery basket is in two parts which can be separated to give greater loading flexibility. To separate
the two parts, slide them horizontally in opposite directions and pull them apart. To reassemble, reverse
the procedure.
The two rows of prongs on
the lower basket can be
easily lowered to allow
you to load pots, pans and

items (plastic bowls etc.)
must be loaded in the upper basket and arranged
so they do not move.
Glasses with long stems
can be placed upside
down in the cup racks.
For taller items, the cup
racks can be folded upwards.
For glasses with long
stems (according to the
size and dimensions), set
the glass holder to the left
or right position.
Adjusting the height of the
upper basket
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. Pull out the basket until it stops.
2. Carefully lift both sides upwards until the mechanism is engaged and the basket is stable.
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.
Never lift or lower the basket on one side only
When the basket is in the higher position you
will not be able to use the cup racks.

Detergent tablets
Detergent tablets from different manufacturers
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.
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
• 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.
Care and cleaning
Cleaning the filters
NEVER use the dishwasher without filters. Incorrect repositioning and fitting of the filters will
produce poor washing results.
