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 average (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 P for 5 seconds, until you hear a beep.
• Switch on the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF 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).

As soon as this procedure is complete, run a program without loading.
Only use salt that has been specifically designed for dishwashers.
After the salt has been poured into the machine, the SALT REFILL indicator light switches off.
If the salt container is not filled, the water softener and the
heating element may be damaged as a result.

FILLING THE RINSE AID DISPENSER
Rinse aid makes dish DRYING easier. The rinse aid dispenser A should
be filled when the RINSE AID REFILL
indicator light in the control
panel is lit.
B
A
1. Open the dispenser B by pressing and pulling up the tab on the lid.
2. Pour in the rinse aid (max.110 ml), making sure it does not overflow
from the dispenser. 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 appliance 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.

• Switch it off using the ON/OFF button.
• Press button P three times - a beep will be heard.
• Switch it on using the ON/OFF button.
• The current selection level number and rinse aid indicator light flash.
• Press button P to select the level of rinse aid quantity to be supplied.
• Switch it off using the ON/OFF button
Setting is complete!
If the rinse aid level is set to ZERO (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 (1-2).
• If there are drops of water or limescale marks on the dishes, set a
mid-range number (3-4).
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 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
B
indications to help the detergent
dosing.
A
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

LOADING THE RACKS
UPPER RACK
Load delicate and light dishes: glasses,
cups, saucers, low salad bowls.
LOWER RACK
(loading example for the upper rack)
ADJUSTING THE HEIGHT OF THE UPPER RACK
The height of the upper basket can be adjusted:
high position to place bulky crockery in the
lower basket and low position to make the most
of the tip-up compartments by creating more
space upwards.
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)
CUTLERY BASKET
It is fitted with top grids for improved cutlery arrangement.
It must only be positioned at the front of the 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.
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.
FOLDABLE FLAPS WITH ADJUSTABLE POSITION
The side foldable flaps can be fold or unfold
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.
Depending on the model:
- to unfold the flaps there is needed to slide it
up and rotate or release it from the snaps and
pull it down.
- to fold the flaps there is needed to rotate it
and slide flaps down or pull it up and attach
flaps to the snaps.
SLIDING TRAY
The upper rack is fitted with a sliding tray
which can be used to hold small crockery
and cutlery. For optimum washing
performance, avoid positioning bulky
crockery directly below the tray. The tray is
removable.

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.

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.
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 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).

CLEANING THE WATER INLET HOSE
C
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.
