Before using the appliance carefully read Health and Safety guide.
Installation
ATTENTION: If the appliance must be moved at any time, keep it in an upright position; if absolutely
necessary, it may be tilted onto its back.
CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY
ANTI-FLOODING PROTECTION
Adaptation of the water supply for installation
should only be performed by a qualified technician.
The water inlet and outlet hoses may be positioned
towards the right or the left in order to achieve the
best possible installation.
Make sure the dishwasher does not bend or squash
the hoses.
Anti-flooding protection. To ensure floods do not occur, the dishwasher:
- is provided with a special system which blocks the
water supply in the event of anomalies or leaks from
inside the appliance.
Some models are also equipped with the supplementary safety device New Aqua Stop, which guarantees anti-flooding protection even in the event of a
supply hose rupture.
Under no circumstances should the water inlet hose
be cut as it contains live electrical parts.
CONNECTING THE WATER INLET HOSE
• Run the water until it is perfectly clear.
• Screw the inlet hose tightly into position and turn
on the tap.
If the inlet hose is not long enough, contact a specialist store or an authorised technician.
The water pressure must be within the values indicated in the Technical Data table - otherwise the dishwasher may be function properly.
Make sure the hose is not bent or compressed.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
WARNING: Under no circumstances
should the water inlet hose be cut as it contains live electrical parts.
Before inserting the plug into the electrical socket,
make sure that:

POSITIONING AND LEVELLING
DIMENSIONS, CAPACITY AND STANDBY
CONSUMPTION:
1. Position the dishwasher on a level sturdy floor. If
the floor is uneven, the front feet of the appliance
may be adjusted until it reaches a horizontal
position. If the appliance is levelled correctly, it
will be more stable and much less likely to move
or cause vibrations and noise while it is
operating.
2. Before recessing the dishwasher, stick the
adhesive transparent strip under the wooden shelf
in order to protect it from any condensation
which may form.
3. Place the dishwasher so that its sides or back
panel are in contact with the adjacent cabinets or
the wall. This appliance can also be recessed
under a single worktop.
4. To adjust the height of the rear foot, turn the red
hexagonal bushing on the lower central part at the
front of the dishwasher using a hexagonal
spanner with an opening of 8 mm. Turn the
spanner in a clockwise direction to increase the
height and in an anticlockwise direction to
decrease it.

Make sure the cap is screwed on tightly, so that no
detergent can get into the container during the wash
program (this could damage the water softener
beyond repair).
As soon as this procedure is complete, run a
program without loading.
The “Pre-Wash” program alone is not sufficient.
Residual saline solution or grains of salt can lead to
corrosion, irreparably damaging the stainless steel
components.
The guarantee is not applicable if faults are caused
by such circumstances.
After the salt has been poured into the machine, the
SALT REFILL indicator light switches off.
Only use salt that has been specifically designed
for dishwashers.
If the salt container is not filled, the water
softener and the heating element may be
damaged as a result.
Whenever you need to add salt, it is mandatory
to complete the procedure before the beginning
of the washing cycle.
B
A
1. Open the dispenser B by pressing and pulling up
the tab on the lid.
2. Carefully introduce the rinse aid as far as the
maximum (110 ml) reference notch of the filling
space - avoid spilling it. If this happens, clean the
spill immediately with a dry cloth.
3. Press the lid down until you hear a click to close it.
NEVER pour the rinse aid directly into the tub.
ADJUSTING THE DOSAGE OF RINSE AID
If you are not completely satisfied with the drying results, you can adjust the quantity of rinse aid used.
To change, follow instructions in section “SETTING
MENU”.
If the rinse aid level is set to 1, no rinse aid will be
supplied. The LOW RINSE AID indicator light will
not be lit if you run out of rinse aid.
A maximum of 5 levels can be set according to the
dishwasher model.
The factory setting is “5”.
• If you see bluish streaks on the dishes, set a low
number (2-3).
• If there are drops of water or limescale marks on
the dishes, set a high number (4-5).
SETTING THE WATER HARDNESS
To allow the water softener to work in a perfect way,
it is essential that the water hardness setting is based
on the actual water hardness in your house. This information can be obtained from your local water supplier.

FILLING THE DETERGENT DISPENSER
To open the detergent dispenser press button A.
Introduce the detergent into the dry dispenser B only.
Only use detergent which has been specifically
designed for dishwashers.
To achieve the best washing and drying results,
the combined use of detergent, rinse aid liquid
and refined salt is required.
We recommend using detergents that do not
contain phosphates or chlorine, as these products
are harmful to the environment.
Good washing results also depend on the correct
amount of detergent being used.
Exceeding the stated amount does not result in a
more effective wash and increases environmental
pollution.
The amount can be adjusted to the soil level.
In the case of normally soiled items, use
approximately either 35g (powder detergent) or
35ml (liquid detergent) and additional tea spoon
of detergent directly inside the tub. If tablets are
used, one tablet will be enough.
If the crockery is only lightly soiled or if it has
been rinsed with water before being placed in the
dishwasher, reduce the amount of detergent used
accordingly (minimum 25 g/ml) e.g. skip the
powder/gel putted inside the tub.
B
A
Place the amount of detergent for pre-washing
directly inside the tub.
1. When measuring out the detergent refer to the
mentioned earlier information to add the proper
quantity. Inside the dispenser B there are
indications to help the detergent dosing.
2. Remove detergent residues from the edges of the
dispenser and close the cover until it clicks.
3. Close the lid of the detergent dispenser by pulling
it up until the closing device is secured in place.
The detergent dispenser automatically opens up at
the right time according to the program.
If all-in-one detergents are used, we recommend
using the TABLET DETERGENT button, because
it adjusts the program so that the best washing and
drying results are always achieved.
If you are using a all-in-one detergents, we
recommend that you add salt in any case,
especially if the water is hard or very hard
(follow the instructions given on the packaging).

washing pots and casseroles. Select a compatible program (see “Programs table”),
press this button to activate DYNAMIC
CLEAN (the indicator lights up).
11
Loading the racks
Before loading the baskets, remove all food residues from the crockery and empty the glasses. You do not
need to rinse beforehand under running water.
Arrange the crockery so that it is held in place firmly and does not tip over; and arrange the containers with
the openings facing downwards and the concave/convex parts placed obliquely, thus allowing the water to
reach every surface and flow freely.
Warning: lids, handles, trays and frying pans do not prevent the sprayer arms from rotating.
Place any small items in the cutlery basket.
Very soiled dishes and pans should be placed in the lower basket because in this sector the water sprays are
stronger and allow a higher washing performance.
After loading the appliance, make sure that the sprayer arms can rotate freely.
UPPER RACK
Load delicate and light dishes: glasses, cups, saucers,
low salad bowls.
The upper rack has tip-up supports which can be used
in a vertical position when arranging tea/ dessert saucers or in a lower position to load bowls and food
containers.
(loading example for the upper rack)
ADJUSTING THE HEIGHT OF THE UPPER RACK
The height of the upper rack can be adjusted: high
position to place bulky crockery in the lower basket
and low position to make the most of the tip-up supports by creating more space upwards and avoid collision with the items loaded into lower rack.
The upper rack is equipped with a Upper Rack height
adjuster (see figure), without pressing the levers, lift
it up by simply holding the rack sides, as soon as the
rack is stable in its upper position.
To restore to the lower position, press the levers A at
the sides of the rack and move the basket downwards.
We strongly recommend
that you do not adjust
the height of the rack
when it is loaded.
NEVER raise or lower
the basket on one side
only.
FOLDABLE FLAPS WITH ADJUSTABLE POSITION
The side foldable flaps can be positioned at three different heights to optimize the arrangement of crockery inside the rack.
Wine glasses can be placed safely in the foldable
flaps by inserting the stem of each glass into the corresponding slots.
For optimum drying results incline the foldable flaps
more. To change the inclination, pull up the foldable
flap, slide it slightly and position it as you wish.
12
LOWER RACK
For pots, lids, plates, salad bowls, cutlery etc. Large
plates and lids should ideally be placed at the sides to
avoid interferences with the spray arm.
(loading example for the lower rack)
The lower rack has tip-up supports which can be used
in a vertical position when arranging plates or in a
horizontal position (lower) to load pans and salad
bowls easily.
DYNAMIC CLEAN IN LOWER RACK
Dynamic Clean uses the special water jets in the rear
of cavity to wash more intensively the high dirty items.
Placing the pots/casseroles faced to the Dynamic
Clean component please activate the DYNAMIC
CLEAN on the panel.
How to use Dynamic Clean.
1. Adjust the Dynamic Clean area (G) folding down
the rear plate holders to load pots.
2. Load pots and casseroles inclined vertically in
Dynamic Clean area. Pots have to be inclined
towards the power water jets.
The lower rack has a Dynamic Clean, a special pullout support in the rear of the rack that can be used to
support frying pans or baking pans in upright position, thus taking up less space.
CUTLERY BASKET
The modular basket can slide to optimise the space
inside the lower rack. It is equipped with top grilles
for improved cutlery arrangement.
Knives and other utensils with sharp edges must
be placed in the cutlery basket with the points
facing downwards or they must be positioned
horizontally in the tip-up compartments on the
upper rack.

Tips
UNSUITABLE CROCKERY
DAMAGE TO GLASS AND CROCKERY
• Wooden crockery and cutlery.
• Delicate decorated glasses, artistic handicraft and
antique crockery. Their decorations are not resistant.
• Parts in synthetic material which do not withstand high temperatures.
• Copper and tin crockery.
• Crockery soiled with ash, wax, lubricating grease
or ink.
The colours of glass decorations and aluminium/silver
pieces can change and fade during the washing process.
Some types of glass (e.g. crystal objects) can become
opaque after a number of wash cycles too.
• Only use glasses and porcelain guaranteed by the
manufacturer as dishwasher safe.
• Use a delicate detergent suitable for crockery to
avoid white strips on the glass use.
• Collect glasses and cutlery from the dishwasher
as soon as the wash cycle is over.
HYGIENE
To avoid odour and sediment which can be accumulated in the dishwasher please run a high temperature
program at least one a month. Use a tea spoon of detergent and run it without the loading to clean your
appliance.
Care and maintenance
ATTENTION: Always unplug the appliance when cleaning it and when performing maintenance work.
Do not use flammable liquids to clean the machine.
CLEANING THE DISHWASHER
CHEKING THE WATER SUPPLY HOSE
Any marks on the inside of the appliance may be removed using a cloth dampened with water and a little
vinegar.
The external surfaces of the machine and the control panel can be
cleaned using a non-abrasive cloth
which has been dampened with water. Do not use solvents or abrasive
products.
Check the inlet hose regularly for brittleness and
cracks. If damaged, replace it by a new hose available
through our After-Sales Service or your specialist dealer.
Depending on the hose type:
PREVENTING UNPLEASANT ODOURS
If the inlet hose has a transparent coating, periodically check if the colour intensifies locally. If yes, the
hose may have a leak and should be replaced.
For water stop hoses: check the small safety valve inspection window (see arrow). If it is red, the water
stop function was triggered, and the hose must be replaced by a new one.
For unscrewing this hose, press the release button
while unscrewing the hose.
Always keep the door of the appliance ajar in order
to avoid moisture from forming and being trapped inside the machine.
Clean the seals around the door and detergent dispensers regularly using a damp sponge. This will avoid
food becoming trapped in the seals, which is the main
cause behind the formation of unpleasant odours.
15
CLEANING THE FILTER ASSEMBLY
Regularly clean the filter assembly so that the filters do
not clog and that the waste water flows away correctly.
The filter assembly consists of three filters which remove food residues from the washing water and then
recirculate the water: to obtain the best washing results, you need to keep them clean.
The dishwasher must not be used without filters
or if the filter is loose.
After several washes, check the filter assembly and if
necessary clean it thoroughly under running water,
using a non-metallic brush and following the instructions below:
1. Turn the cylindrical filter A in an anti-clockwise
direction and pull it out (Fig 1).
2. Remove the cup filter B by exerting a slight
pressure on the side flaps (Fig 2).
3. Slide out the stainless-steel plate filter C (Fig 3).
4. Inspect the trap and remove any food residues.
NEVER REMOVE the wash-cycle pump
protection (black detail) (Fig 4)
After cleaning the filters, re-place the filter assembly
and fix it in position correctly; this is essential for
maintaining the efficient operation of the dishwasher.

CLEANING THE SPRAY ARMS
On occasions, food residue may become encrusted
onto the spray arms and block the holes used to spray
the water. It is therefore recommended that you
check the arms from time to time and clean them
with a small non-metallic brush.
To remove the upper spray arm, turn the plastic locking ring in an anti-clockwise direction. The upper
spray arm should be replaced so that the side with the
greater number of holes is facing upwards.
The lower spray arm may be removed by pulling it
upwards.
CLEANING THE WATER INLET HOSE
If the water hoses are new or have not been used for
an extended period of time, let the water run to make
sure it is clear and free of impurities before performing the necessary connections. If this precaution is
not taken, the water inlet could become blocked and
damage the dishwasher.
