FIRST TIME USE
SALT, RINSE AID AND DETERGENT
ADVICE REGARDING THE FIRST TIME USE
After installation, remove the stoppers from the racks and the retaining elastic elements from the upper rack.
FILLING THE SALT RESERVOIR
The use of salt prevents the formation of LIMESCALE on the dishes and
on the machine’s functional components.
• It is important that the salt reservoir be never empty.
• It is important to set the water hardness.
The salt reservoir is located in the lower part of the dishwasher (see PRODUCT DESCRIPTION) and should be filled when the SALT REFILL indicator light
in the control panel is lit .
1. Remove the lower rack and unscrew the
reservoir cap (anticlockwise).
2. Only the first time you do this: fill the salt reservoir with water.
3. Position the funnel (see figure) and fill the salt
reservoir right up to its edge (approximately
1 kg); it is not unusual for a little water to leak
out.
4. Remove the funnel and wipe any salt residue
away from the opening.
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).
Whenever you need to add salt, it is mandatory to complete the
procedure before the beginning of the washing cycle.
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.
The factory setting is for avarage (3) water hardness.
• Switch on the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF button.
• Switch off the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF button.
• Hold down button START/PAUSE for 5 seconds, until you hear a
beep.
• Switch on the appliance by pressing the ON/OFFF button.
• The current selection level number and the salt indicator light both
flash.
• Press button P to select the desired hardness level (see WATER
HARDNESS TABLE).

Setting is complete!
If the rinse aid level is set to 1 (ECO), 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 specific to the model, please follow instruction above
to check this for your machine.
• 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
mid-range number (4-5).
FILLING THE DETERGENT DISPENSER
To open the detergent dispenser
use the opening device A. Introduce
the detergent into the dry dispenser
B only. Place the amount of
detergent for pre-washing directly

been rinsed with water before being placed in the dishwasher,
reduce the amount of detergent used accordingly.
ADVICE AND TIPS
TIPS
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.
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.
UNSUITABLE 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.
DAMAGE TO GLASS AND CROCKERY
• Only use glasses and porcelain guaranteed by the manufacturer as dishwasher safe.
• Use a delicate detergent suitable for crockery.
• Collect glasses and cutlery from the dishwasher as soon as
the wash cycle is over.

LOADING THE RACKS
CUTLERY RACK
FOLDABLE FLAPS WITH ADJUSTABLE POSITION
The third rack was designed to house the cutlery. Arrange the cutlery
as shown in the figure. A separate arrangement of the cutlery makes
collection easier after washing and improves washing and drying
performance.
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.
LOWER RACK
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.
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. 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.
The geometry of the rack makes it possible to place such small items
as coffee cups in the area in the middle.
UPPER RACK
Load delicate and light dishes: glasses, cups, saucers, low salad bowls.
(loading example for the lower rack)
POWER CLEAN®
(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.
6
A
Power Clean® uses the special water jets in
the rear of cavity to wash more intensively
the high dirty items. The lower rack has a
Space Zone, a special pull-out 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.
Placing the pots/casseroles faced to the Power Clean® component
please activate the POWER CLEAN® on the panel.
How to use Power Clean®:
1. Adjust the Power Clean® area G
folding down the rear plate
holders to load pots.
2. Load pots and casseroles
inclined vertically in Power
Clean® area. Pots have to be
inclined towards the power
water jets.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
CLEANING THE FILTER ASSEMBLY
CLEANING THE SPRAY ARMS
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).
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.
1
To remove the upper spray arm, turn the plastic locking ring in an anticlockwise direction. The upper spray arm should be replaced so that
the side with the greater number of holes is facing upwards.
2

A
A
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.

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.
