The waterblock system
Fig. 1
The waterblock system has been designed to
improve the safety of your appliance,
particularly when the machine is left
unattended.
The waterblock system actually prevents
flooding which might be caused by a machine
malfunction or as a result of a fracture on the
pipes.
How does waterblock work
The sump located in the base of the
appliance collects any possible water leakage
and operates a sensor which subsequently
activates a valve placed under the water tap
and stops any water from the supply even with
the tap fully opened. If the box containing the
electrical parts is damaged, remove the plug
from the socket immediately.
A
INSTALLATION
(Technical notes)
Electrical connection
After unpacking, adjust the height of the
dishwasher.
For the dishwasher to work correctly it must be
level. Adjust the feet so that the machine does
not tilt by more than 2 degrees. If it you need
to move the machine after removing the
packaging, do not try to lift it by the bottom of
the door.
Open the door slightly and lift the machine by
holding on the top.
This appliance complies with all the international
safety standards and is fitted with a 3 pin plug
with earth connection to ensure complete
earthing of the product.
In the absence of adequate earthing you will
notice that when touching the metal parts of
your appliance an electrical dispersion can be
felt due to the presence of a radio interference
suppressor.
Before connecting the appliance to the mains
supply it is important to ensure:
– That the supply socket is properly earthed.
– That your electricity supply is capable of
meeting the consumption requirements
listed on the rating plate of your appliance.
To ensure perfect operation of the safety system, box “A” with the hose, should be connected to the
tap as shown in Figure “1”. The inlet hose should not be cut, as it contains parts under load. If the
hose is not long enough for correct connection, it must be replaced with a longer one. The hose can
be obtained from your Service Agent.
- the dishwasher is designed for normal
kitchen utensils.
Objects that have been contamined by
petrol, paint, traces of steel or iron,
corrosive chemicals, acids or alkalis must
not be washed in the dishwasher
- if you wish to dispose of an old dishwasher
be careful to remove the door to eliminate
the risk of children becoming trapped inside it
- the dishwasher has been made from
materials which can be recycled so that it
can be disposed of in an environmentally
friendly way
- in general it is not advisable to use
adaptors, multiple plugs and/or extension
cables
- Water left in the machine or on the dishes at
the end of the wash programme should not
be drunk.
- Leaning or sitting on the open door of the
dishwasher could cause it to tip over.
- Cutlery is washed best if it is placed in the
basket with the handles downwards;
Warning: knives and other utensils with
sharp points must be loaded in the basket
with their points down or placed in a
horizontal position.
- Should it be necessary the replacement
of the supply cord, call the Service
Department.
- This appliance should only be used for
domestic purposes.
Safety Instructions
Please read the instructions in this booklet
carefully because they contain important
information on how to install, use and maintain
your dishwasher safely as well as containing
useful tips on how to make the most of it.
Keep this booklet carefully for future reference.
There are certain basic safety rules which are
valid for any domestic appliance. They are the

should be supervised to ensure that they do
not play with the appliance"
- make sure that the plug fitted to the
machine is compatible with the power
supply socket. If it is not, get a suitably
qualified person to fit the correct type, and to
make sure that the cables to the mains
socket are able to cope with the power
rating of the appliance
- ensure that the dishwasher does not crush
power cables
- if there is a water softening device installed
in the home there is no need to add salt to
the water softener fitted in the dishwasher
This appliance is suitable for connection to
a 240 V AC 50 Hz.
Supply
This appliance should be used only on a
socket with a rating of 10 Amps.
Important: when the appliance is located
on a carpet floor, attention must be paid to
ensure that there is no obstruction to the
bottom vents.

remains accessible after installation.
“WARNING”
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
Important: manufacturer declines all
responsibility for any damages due to
nonearthing of the machine.
Use only new water hoses with any new
appliance. Discard old water hoses.
If the appliance breaks down or stops working
properly, switch it off, turn off the water supply
and do not tamper with it. Repair work should
only be carried out by an approved service
agent and only genuine spare parts should be
fitted. Any failure to follow the above advice
may have serious consequences for the safety
of the appliance.

Water connection
Installation in fitted
kitchens
The inlet and drain hoses can be directed to
left or right.
The dishwasher can be connected to either
cold or hot water, as long as it is no hotter
than 60 °C.
Water pressure must be between 0,08 MPa
and 0,8 MPa. If the pressure is below the
minimum consult our service department for
advice.
The inlet hose must be connected to a tap so
that the water supply can be cut off when the
machine is not in use (fig.1 B).
The dishwasher is fitted with 3/4" threaded
connector (fig. 2).
Connect inlet hose A to water tap B with a 3/4"
attachment making sure that it has been
properly tightened.
If it is necessary to lengthen the inlet pipe, call
the Service Department.
If limescale deposits or sand are present in the
water, it is advisable to obtain the appropriate
filter, from the Service Centre (fig. 3).
The filter D must be inserted between the tap
B and the inlet hose A, remembering to fit the
washer C.
If the dishwasher is connected to new pipes or
to pipes which have not been in use for a long
time run water through for a few minutes before
connecting the inlet hose. In this way no
deposits of sand or rust will clog up the water
inflow filter.
Fitting between existing
cabinets
The height of the dishwasher, 85 cm, has been
designed in order to allow the machine to be
fitted between existing cabinets of the same
height in modern fitted kitchens. The feet can
be adjusted so that correct height is reached.
The laminated top of the machine does not
require any particular care since it is heatproof, scratchproof and stainproof (fig. 5).
The work top can be easily adjusted to line it
with the top of existing cabinets; this is done
by moving it by 5 mm each time up to a maximum of 25 mm.
To adjust it, unscrew the two screws at the
back and fix the top in the position required
(fig. 6).
Underneath existing work top
(when fitting beneath a work top)
In most modern fitted kitchens there is only
one single work top under which cabinets and
electrical appliances are fitted.
In this case remove the working top of the
dishwasher by unscrewing the screws under
the rear edge of the top (fig. 6).
The height will then be reduced to 82 cm, as
scheduled by the International Regulations
(ISO) and the dishwasher will fit perfectly
under the kitchen working top (fig. 7).
Connecting the outlet hose
The outlet hose should disharge into a standpipe, making sure that there are no kinks (fig. 4).
The standpipe must be at least 40 cm above
floor level and it must have an internal
diameter of at least 4 cm. It is advisable to fit
an anti-odour air trap (fig. 4 x).
If necessary the outlet hose can be extended
up to 2,6 m, provided that it is kept at a maximum height of 85 cm above floor level.
The hose can be hooked over the side of the
sink (it must not be immersed in water, in order
to prevent water from being syphoned back to
the machine when this is in operation) (fig. 4 y).
When installing the appliance under a worktop
the hose pipe clamp must be attached to the
wall in the highest possible position under the
worktop (fig. 4 z).
Check that there are no kinks in the inlet and
outlet hoses.
Opening the door
Put your hand into the recess and push upwards.
If the machine comes open while it is working,
an electrical safety device automatically
switches everything off.
For the machine to work properly, the door
should not be opened while it is in operation.
Closing the door
Place the baskets in the machine.
Make sure that both the spray arms are free to
rotate and are not obstructed by cutlery,
crockery or pans. Close the door, pressing on
it to make sure it is firmly shut.
12
When the required setting appears on the
display, wait for an audible signal to confirm
that the new setting has been stored in
memory.
Water softener unit
According to the source of the supply, water
contains varying amounts of limestone and
minerals which are deposited on the dishes
leaving whitish stains and marks.
The higher the level of these minerals present
in the water, the harder the water is.
The dishwasher is fitted with a water softener
unit which, through the use of special
regenerating salt, supplies softened water for
washing the dishes.
The degree of hardness of your water can be
obtained from your water supply company.

Loading the salt
The dishwasher is fitted with a softener which
clears the water of lime which could cause
scale and damage the dishwasher.
On the bottom of the machine there is a
container for the salt for regenerating the
softener (fig. A “1”).
The filter medium of the softening plant must
be reactivated with dishwasher water softener
regenerating salt.
Other types of salt contain small quantities of
insoluble particles which over a long period of
time may affect and deteriorate the softener
performance.
To add salt, unscrew the cap of the container
on the bottom and then refill the container
(fig. 8).
During this operation a little water will
overflow; but keep adding salt until the container
is full. When the container is full, clean the
thread of salt residue and retighten the tap.
If the dishwasher is not required straightaway,
set the Prewash programme so that the salt
solution which has overflowed is discharged
from the washing tank.
The salt dispenser has a capacity of between
1.5 and 1.8 kg and, for efficient use of the
appliance, it should be refilled from time to
time according to the regulation of the water
softener unit.
Regulating the water
softener with
electronic programmer
The water softener can treat water with a
hardness level of up to 90°fH (French grading)
or 50°dH (German grading) through 8 settings.

- the effectiveness of detergents containing the
built in water softener/salt depends on the
hardness of your water supply. Check that the
hardness of your water supply is within the
effective range given on the detergent packaging.
Loading the detergent
and the rinse aid.
Filling the detergent container
It is essential to use a detergent that is
specifically designed for dishwashers
either in powder, liquid or tablet form.
Unsuitable detergents (like those for washing
up by hand) do not contain the proper
ingredients for use in a dishwasher and stop
the dishwasher from working correctly.
In certain circumstances use of combined
detergents can cause:
- limescale deposits on dishes or in the dishwasher;
- a reduction in washing and drying performance.
Should this occur, we would recommend using
traditional separate products – salt, detergent
and rinse agent. This will ensure that the water
softener in the dishwasher operates correctly.
Please note that on return to the use of conventional
salt, a number of cycles will be required before the
system becomes fully efficient again.
Normal wash
The detergent container is inside the door (fig. A
“2”). If the lid of the container is closed it is
sufficient to press the button to open. At the end
of every wash cycle the lid is always open and
ready for the next time the dishwasher is used.
The amount of detergent to be used varies
according to how dirty the dishes to be washed
are and on the type of dishes to be washed.We
advise using 20-30 gr of detergent in the wash
section of detergent compartment 1 (Fig.9).
NOTE
Any problems which arise as a direct result
of the use of these products are not covered
by our warranty.
Filling the rinse aid container
After pouring the detergent into the
con-tainer close the lid.
Since not all detergents are the same the
instructions on the boxes of detergent can
vary. We should just like to remind users that
too little detergent does not clean the dishes
properly whilst too much detergent not only
does not produce better results but is also a
waste. Do not use an excessive amount of
detergent help limit damage to the
environment at the same time.
The rinse aid container can be found to the right
of the detergent container: it has a capacity of
about 130 ml (Fig A "3"). Turn the cap (B)
anticlockwise and pour enough liquid will last
several washes, up to the maximum level shown
(Fig.11). Replace the cap. The rinse aid, which is
automatically released during the last rinsing
cycle, helps the dishes to dry quickly and
prevents spots and stains forming. It is always
advisable to use rinse aid. Check the rinse aid
level through the indicator eye which is situated
in the centre of the dispenser (A).
Wash with soaking cycle (prewash)
If setting the Intensive wash programme, a
second dose of about 20 gr of detergent (1
table-spoon) must be added to the machine in
the prewash section of detergent compartment
2 (Fig.10).
For Universal programme add 5 gr.
This dose should be placed directly in the
prewash section of detergent compartment 2.

Regulating the rinse aid from 1 to 6
The regulator is placed under the cap (B) and
can be turned using a coin. The recommended
position is 3 (Fig.12). The limestone content of
the water considerably affects the formation of
scale and the drying performance. It is
therefore important to regulate the quantity of
rinse aid to achieve good washing results.
If, after the wash, streaks occur on the dishes,
decrease the amount by one position. If whitish
spots occur, increase the amount by one position.
If you select a programme with a prewash cycle,
the performance will be improved by adding a small
amount of detergent during this part of the cycle.
CAUTION! IMPORTANT NOTE ON THE USE
OF COMBINED DETERGENTS
If you are planning to use combined detergents
i.e. those with built in salt and/or rinse agent, we
would advise the following:
Warning:
dishwasher detergents are strongly alkaline.
They can be extremely dangerous if
swallowed. Avoid contact with skin and
eyes and keep children away from the
dishwasher when the door is open.
Check that detergent receptacle is empty
after completion of the wash cycle.
- read carefully and follow the manufacturer’s
instructions given on the packaging;
- some combined detergents, particularly those
with built in rinse agent, provide best results
when used with specific programmes;

cycle to soften the food remains and remove
bigger particles of food from the new load of
dishes. When the dishwasher is full start the
complete wash cycle programme.
2) If the dishes are not very dirty or if the
baskets are not very full select an ECONOMY
programme, following the instructions in the
program list.
Cleaning the filters
The filter system (fig.A “4”) consists of: a central
container that traps the larger particles. a flat
gauze that continuously filters the wash water
a micro filter, located beneath the gauze, that
traps the tiniest particles ensuring a perfect
rinse. To achieve excellent results every time,
the filters should be checked and cleaned after
each wash.
To remove the filter unit, simply turn the handle
anticlockwise (fig. 25/1).
For ease of cleaning, the central container is
removable (fig. 25/2).
Remove the gauze filter (fig. 25/3) and wash
the whole unit under a jet of water. If necessary
a small brush can be used.
With the Self-cleaning Micro filter,
maintenance is reduced and the filter unit
need only be checked every two weeks.
Nevertheless, after each wash it is advisable
to check that the central container and the
gauze filter are not clogged.
How to get really good wash RESULTS
1) Place the dishes face downwards.
2) Try to place the dishes in such a way that
they are not touching one another. If they are
loaded properly you will get better results.
3) Before placing the dishes in the dishwasher
remove any remaining food (bones, shells,
pieces of meat or vegetables, coffee grounds,
skin of fruit, cigarette ash etc. that could clog
up the outflow and the washing arm jets.
4) After loading the dishes check that the
washing arms can rotate freely.
5) Pans and other dishes that have particularly
stubborn food particles or remnants of burnt
food should be left to soak in water with
dishwasher detergent.
6) To wash silver properly:
a) rinse the silver immediately after use,
especially if it has been used for mayonnaise,
eggs, fish etc.
b) do not sprinkle detergent onto it
c) keep it separate from other metals
NB: after cleaning the filters, make sure
that they are correctly reassembled and
that the gauze filter is properly positioned
at the bottom of the dishwasher.
Make sure that the filter is screwed back,
clockwise, into the gauze, as poor seating
of the filter unit could have an adverse
effect on the efficiency of the appliance.
What to DO if
1) You want to stop the dishwasher to put in
more dishes whilst it is in the middle of a wash.
Open the door only after pressing the O/I
button so that the dishwasher is in OFF.
After closing the door, wait 3 minutes before
starting up the machine again.
Warning: never use the dishwasher without
the filters.
Practical hints
Selecting the programme
This dishwasher offers you a wide range of
wash programmes so that you can choose the
most suitable according to the type of dishes
and how dirty they are.
Refer to the PROGRAMME LIST to choose
the most suitable programme.
What not to wash
It should also be remembered that not all
dishes are suitable for washing in a dishwasher.
We advise against using the dishwasher to
wash items in thermoplastic, cutlery with
wooden or plastic handles, saucepans with
wooden handles, items in aluminium, crystal,
leaded glass unless otherwise stated.
Certain decorations may fade. It is therefore a
good idea before loading the whole batch to
wash just one of the items first so as to be sure
that others like it will not fade.
It is also a good idea not to put silver cutlery
with non-stainless steel handles into the
dishwasher as there could be a chemical
reaction between them.
Useful hints
In order to avoid any dripping from the top
rack, remove the lower rack first.
If the dishes are to be left in the machine for
some time, leave the door ajar, to let some air
circulate and to improve the drying
performance.
How to make SAVINGS
1) If you want the dishwasher to give a
complete wash, place the dishes in the
dishwasher at the end of each meal and if
necessary turn on the COLD PRE-WASH
IMPORTANT
When buying new crockery or cutlery always
make sure that they are suitable for washing in
a dishwasher.

Cleaning and
maintenance
2
The outside of the cabinet can be cleaned with
a non-abrasive cleaning agent suitable for a
gloss finish.
The dishwasher does not require special
maintenance,
because
the
tank
is
selfcleaning. Regularly wipe the door gasket
with a damp cloth to remove any food remains
or rinse aid. It is advisable to remove
limestone deposits or dirt periodically, by doing
an empty wash; pour a glass of vinegar on the
bottom of the tank and select the light wash.
Identifying minor faults
Warning!
Before removing any panel: 1. Turn the knob to STOP.
2. Pull the electric plug out.
Should the dishwasher fail to operate, before contacting the Service Centre, make
the following checks:
FAULT
1 - Machine completely dead
If, in spite of the routine cleaning of the filters,
you notice that the dishes or pans are not
properly washed or rinsed, check that all the
spray heads on the rotor arms (fig. A “5”) are
clear.
If they are blocked, clean them in the following
way:
Both the door lining and the tank lining are in
stainless steel; however, should spots caused
by oxidation occur, this is probably due to a
high level of iron salts presents in the water.
The spots can be removed with a mild
abrasive agent; never use chlorine based
materials, steel wool, etc.
To remove the upper rotor arm, turn it until it
lines up with the stop marked by the arrow
(fig.1b). Push it upwards and, keeping it
pushed in, unscrew it in a clockwise direction.
To reassemble it repeat the same operation, but turn it anticlockwise. The lower
rotor arm can be removed simply by pulling it
upwards (fig. 2).
• wash the rotor arms under a jet of water to
clear any blockage in the spray heads.
• When you have finished, refit the rotor arms
in the same position, remembering to re-align
the arrow and screw into position.
WHEN CYCLE IS FINISHED
After every wash it is essential to turn off water
supply and to switch off the machine by
pressing the On/Off button to the off position.
If the machine is not going to be used for some
time, it is advisable to follow these rules:
1
1. do an empty wash with detergent in order to
clean the machine of any deposits.
2. pull out the electric plug.
3. turn off the water tap.
4. fill the rinse aid container.
5. Ieave the door ajar.
6. Keep the inside of the machine clean.
7. If the machine is left in places where the
temperature is below 0°C any water left
inside the pipes may freeze. Wait until the
temperature rises above zero and then wait
for about 24 hours before starting up the
dishwasher.

N.B.: Should any of the situations occur and should the machine give a bad wash performance, it is
necessary to remove the deposits from the dishes by hand since the final drying cycle hardens the
deposits which a second wash in the machine would not be able to remove.
If the malfunction continues contact a Service Centre quoting the serial number of the dishwasher.
This is found on the plaque on the inside of the dishwasher door at the top or on the guarantee.
This information will make it possible to take more effective action more quickly.
