variations of the power supply and the quantity of dishes.
2) Temperature of the main wash in Celsius scale.
3) The digital display shows the programme duration.
4) During the 'Automatic' washing programme the level of soiling on the dishes is determined by how cloudy the water
is. The programme duration, water and energy consumption levels can vary. This depends upon whether the
appliance is fully or partially loaded and if the dishes are lightly or heavily soiled. The temperature of the water is
automatically adjusted between 45°C and 70°C.
5) Ideal for washing a partially loaded dishwasher. 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.
When the dishwasher is first
installed
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 level.
• Pour 1 litre of water into 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').
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.
10
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 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).

(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.
5. Replace the cap tightly turning it clockwise
until it stops with a click.
Filling with 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.
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 on for a few hours
after the salt has been replenished,
assuming the dishwasher remains
switched on. If you are using salt that
takes longer to dissolve then this can
take longer. The operation of the
machine is not affected.
12
Filling with 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).
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 rinse aid
dosage
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).
2. Add the rinse aid in the container. The
maximum level for filling is indicated by
'max'.
13
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.
Daily use
• 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 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.
• Check if it's necessary to refill with
dishwasher salt or rinse aid.
• Open the door and slide out the baskets to
load the dishes.
• 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
14
For washing in the dishwasher the following cutlery and dishes
are not suitable:
are of limited suitability:
• Cutlery with wooden, horn, china or motherof-pearls 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.
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.
The two rows of prongs in the lower basket
can lie flat to allow you to load pots, pans and
bowls.
15
Mix spoons with other cutlery to prevent
them from sticking together.
For best results we recommend 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 or removed.
The cutlery basket
Warning! 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 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.
16
Maximum height of the dishes in the
lower basket

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.
Glasses with long stems can be placed upside
down in the cup racks.
For taller items, the cup racks can be folded
upwards.
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.
Before closing the door, ensure that
the spray arms can rotate freely.
Never lift or lower the basket on
one side only.
When the upper basket is raised
you will not be able to use the
cup racks.
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.
17
Warning! After loading your
machine always close the door, as an
open door can be a hazard.
Use of detergent
Only use detergents specifically
designed for use in dishwashers.
Please observe the manufacturer’s
dosing and storage recommendations
as stated on the detergent packaging.
Using no more than the correct
amount of detergent contributes to
reducing pollution.
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 (2). This detergent will be used
during the prewash phase.
When using detergent tablets; place the
tablet in compartment (1).
Fill with detergent
1. Open the lid.
2. Fill the detergent dispenser (1) with
detergent. The marking indicates the
dosing levels:
18
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.
Multi tab function
This appliance is equipped with the Multi tab
function, that allows the use of combi
detergent tablets.
These products are detergents with a
combined cleaning, rinsing and salt functions.

3. The countdown will decrease with steps
of 1 hour.
4. The opening of the door will interrupt the
countdown. Close the door; the
countdown will continue from the point at
which it was interrupted.
5. Once the delay start has elapsed the
programme will start automatically.
• Open the dishwasher door; the
programme will stop. Close the door; the
programme will start from the point at
which it was interrupted.
End of the washing

Cancelling a delay start or
a washing programme in
progress
• Simultaneously press and hold the two
programme buttons positioned over the
word Cancel, until all the programme
button lights come on.
• 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.
When the washing programme
has finished, it is recommended
that the dishwasher is unplugged
and the water tap turned off.
21
Unloading the dishwasher
• Water may appear on the sides and the
door of the dishwasher as the stainless steel
will eventually become cooler than the
dishes.
• 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.
Maintenance and cleaning
3. Turn the handle about 1/4 a turn
anticlockwise and remove the filter
system.
Cleaning the filters
The filters must be checked and cleaned from
time to time. Dirty filters will degrade the
washing result.
Warning! 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. Unlock the filter system using the
handle on the microfilter.
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 from the base of the
washing compartment and clean both
faces thoroughly.
22
since these can damage the surfaces and
plastic parts of the appliance.
Internal cleaning
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 you run the
wash programme for heavy soiled dishes using
detergent but without dishes.
Prolonged periods of nonoperation
7. Put the flat filter back in the base of the
washing compartment and ensure that it
fits perfectly.
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.
If you are not using the machine for a
prolonged 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
NEVER use the dishwasher
without filters.
Incorrect repositioning and fitting of
the filters will produce poor washing
results and will result in damage to the
appliance.
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.
Moving the machine
NEVER try to remove the spray
arms.
If residues of soil have clogged the
holes in the spray arms, remove the
debris with a cocktail stick.
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.
External 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.),

Water connections
Water inlet connection
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.
This appliance must be connected to a cold
water supply.
For making the connection itself, the coupling
nut fitted to the machine’s inlet 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 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 appliance features inlet 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.
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.
max 85 cm
max 400 cm
NOT all models of dishwashers have
inlet and drain hoses provided with a
locknut.
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.
min 40 cm
The drain hose can face either to the right or
left of the dishwasher.
27
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.
If you use a drain hose extension 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.
28
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 repair agent.
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.
Warning! The appliance is supplied
with a 13 amp plug attached. Use a 13
amp ASTA approved (BS 1362) fuse if
it is necessary to change the fuse in the
plug supplied.
