Setting 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).
Water hardness
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 two
ways: manually, using the water hardness dial and electronically.

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 into the container
(this is necessary only before filling
with salt for the first time) .

Loading cutlery and dishes
The lower basket
The lower basket is designed to take saucepan, lids, plates, salad bowls, cutlery etc.
Service dishes and large lids should be arranged around the edge of the basket, ensuring that the spray arms can turn freely.
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.
Forks and spoons should be placed in the
removable cutlery basket with the handles
facing downwards and the knives with their
handles facing upwards.
The rows of prongs in the lower basket can
lie flat to allow you to load pots, pans and
10 electrolux
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.
To make loading of the cutlery basket easier,
lower the cutlery basket handle.
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
To reassemble, reverse the procedure.
For best results we recommend that you use
the cutlery grids.
If the size and dimensions of the cutlery do
not allow the use of the grids, they can be
easily hidden.
The upper basket
The upper basket is designed for saucers,
salad bowls, cups, glasses, pots and lids.
Arrange items on and underneath the cup
racks so that water can reach all surfaces.

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.
3. All programmes with prewash need an
additional detergent dose (5/10 g) that
must be placed in the prewash detergent
chamber (2).

If possible, position the machine next to a
water tap and a drain.
This dishwasher is designed to be fitted under a kitchen counter or work surface.
Attention! Carefully follow the instructions
on the enclosed template for building in the
dishwasher and fitting the furniture panel.
electrolux 21
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.
When inserting the machine, ensure that the
water inlet hose, the drain hose and the supply cable are not kinked or squashed.
Fixing to the adjacent units
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 unit cabinets,
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 inlet connection
This appliance can be connected to either a
hot (max. 60°) or cold water supply.
With a hot water supply you can have a significant reduction of energy consumption.
This however, depends on how the hot water
is produced. (We suggest alternative sources
of energy that are more environmentally
friendly as e.g. solar or photovoltaic panels
and aeolian).
For making the connection itself, the coupling nut fitted to the appliance water inlet
hose is designed to screw onto a 3/4" 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 data'. 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 locknut must be correctly fitted to avoid
water leaks.
If the appliance 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 on 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
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 the Service Force

Water drain 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 venthole,
minimum internal diameter 4 cm.
The waste connection must be at a maximum height of 60 cm from the bottom of the
The total length of the drain hose, including
any extension you might add, must be no
longer than 4 metres. The internal diameter
of the extension hose 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.
The drain hose can face either to the right or
left of the dishwasher
Ensure the drain 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.
To avoid water leakage after installation
make sure that the water couplings are
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.
