When using your dishwasher, follow the basic precautions including the following:
Under certain conditions, Hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot-water system that has not been
used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot-water system has not
been used for such a period, before using the dishwasher turn on all hot-water faucets and let the
water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the
gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.
Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish basket of the dishwasher.
Do not touch the heating element during or immediately after use.
Do not operate your dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are properly in place. Open the door
very carefully if the dishwasher is operating. There is a risk of water squirting out.
Do not place any heavy objects or stand on the door when it is open. The appliance could tip
When loading items to be washed:
Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to damage the door seal;
Load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce the risk of cut-type injuries;
Warning: Knives and other utensils with sharp points must be loaded in the basket with their
points down or placed in a horizontal position.
When using your dishwasher, you should prevent plastic items from contacting with heating
Check that the detergent receptacle is empty after completion of the wash cycle.

2 Pour the rinse aid into the dispenser, be careful not to overfill.
3 Replace the cap by inserting it aligned with "open" arrow and turning it to the "closed" (right)
4.Prior Using for the First Time
Function of Rinse Aid
The rinse aid is released during the final rinse to prevent water from forming droplets on your dishes
that can leave spots and streaks. It also improves drying by allowing water to sheet off the dishes.
Your dishwashers are designed to use liquid rinse aids. The rinse aid dispenser is located inside the
door next to the detergent dispenser.
To fill the dispenser, open the cap and pour the rinse aid into the dispenser until the level indicator
turns completely black. The volume of the rinse aid container is about 140ml.
Be careful not to overfill the dispenser, because this could cause over sudsing. Wipe away any spills
with a damp cloth. Don't forget to replace the cap before you close dishwasher door.
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring thorough rinsing, spot and streak
free drying.
Before using your dishwasher for the first time:
A. Fill the rinse aid dispenser
B. Function of detergent
A. Fill the Rinse Aid Dispenser
Only use branded rinse aid for dishwasher. Never fill the rinse aid dispenser with any other
substances (e.g. dishwasher cleaning agent, liquid detergent). This would damage the appliance.
When to Refill the Rinse Aid Dispenser
You can judge the amount of rinse-aid by the colour of the optical level indicator "D" located next to
the cap. When the rinse-aid container is full, the whole indicator will be dark .As the rinse aid
diminishes, the size of the dark dot decreases. You should never let the rinse aid get below 1 / 4 full.
As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of the
black dot on the rinse aid level indicator
changes, as illustrated below.
3 / 4 full
1 / 2 full
1 / 4 full - Should refill to eliminate spotting
D (Rinse-Aid indicator)
Clean up any rinse aid split during filling with an absorbent cloth to avoid excess foaming during the
next wash.
Adjusting Rinse Aid Dispenser
The rinse aid dispenser has four or six settings. Always start with
the dispenser set on "4" If spots and poor drying are problems,
increase the amount of rinse aid dispensed by removing the
dispenser lid and rotating the dial to "5". If the dishes still are not
drying properly or are spotted, adjust the dial to the next higher
number until your dishes are spot-free.The dose is factory set
in position 5.
Adjust lever
NOTE: 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
B. Function of Detergent
Detergents with its chemical ingredients are necessary to remove dirt, crush dirt and transport it out
of the dishwasher. Most of commercial quality detergents are suitable for this purpose.
Concentrated Detergent
Fill the detergent
Based on their chemical composition, dishwasher can be split in two basic types:
■conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components
■low alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes
The use of "normal" washing programme in conjunction with concentrated detergents reduces
pollution and is good for your dishes; these washing programmes are specially matched to the dirtdissolving properties of the enzymes of the concentrated detergent. For this reason"normal"
washing programme in which concentrated detergents are used can achieve the same results that
can otherwise only be achieved using"intensive" programme.
Fill the detergent dispenser with detergent.
The marking indicates the dosing levels , as
illustrated on the right:
1 The place of main wash cycle detergent placed,
"MIN"means approximately 20g of detergent.
2 The place of pre-wash cycle detergent placed ,
approximately 5g of detergent.
Detergent Tablets
Detergent tablets of different brands dissolve at different speeds. For this reason some detergent
cannot dissolve and develop their full cleaning power during short programmes. Therefore please
use long programmes when using detergent tablets, to ensure the complete removal of detergent
Please observe the manufacturer's dosing and
storage recommendations as stated on the
Detergent packaging.
Close the lid and press until it locks in place.
If the dishes are heavily soiled, place an additional detergent dose in the pre-wash detergent
chamber. This detergent will take effect during the pre-wash phase.
Detergent Dispenser
The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each washing cycle following the instructions
provided in the Wash Cycle Table. Your dishwashers use less detergent and rinse aid than
conventional dishwashers. Generally, only one tablespoon of detergent is needed fora normal wash
load. Also, more heavily soiled items need more detergent. Always add the detergent just before
starting dishwasher, otherwise it could get damp and will not dissolve properly.
You find information about the amount of detergent for the single programme on the last page.
Please be aware that according to the level soiling and the specific hardness of water, differences
are possible.
Please observe the manufacturer's recommendations on the detergent packaging.
Amount of Detergent to Use
1 If the lid is closed: press release button. The lid springs open.
2 Always add the detergent just before starting each wash cycle. Only use branded detergent aid
for dishwasher.
Dishwasher detergent is corrosive! Take care to keep it out of reach of children
Use only detergent specifically made for use in dishwashers. Keep your detergent fresh and dry.
Don't put powder detergent into the dispenser until you're ready to wash dishes.

2.Turn off the water tap!
Open the door carefully. Hot steam may escape when the door is opened!
■Hot dishes are sensitive to knocks. The dishes should therefore be allowed to cool down around
15 minutes before removing from the appliance.
■Open the dishwasher's door, leave it ajar and wait a few minutes before removing the dishes. In
this way they will be cooler and the drying will be improved.
Unloading the dishwasher
It is normal that the dishwasher is wet inside.
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.
7. Maintenance and cleaning
Filtering System
The filter is used to avoid the big remnants and other sundries getting inside
the pump. The residue can obstruct the filter in sometime.
The filter system consists of a coarse filter, a flat
(Main filter) and a micro filter (fine filter).
1 Flat filter
Food and debris will be trapped by a special jet
on the lower spray arm.
2 Coarse filter
Big debris, such as bone and glass that could clog the
drain will be trapped in the coarse filter.
To remove an item caught in this filter, gently squeeze
the taps on the top of this filter and lift it out.
3 Micro filter
This filter holds soil and food residue in the sump area
and prevents it from being redeposit on the dishes
during a cycle.
- Inspect the filters for obstructions every time the
dishwasher has been used.
- By unscrewing the coarse filter, you can remove
the filter system. Remove any food remnants and
clean the filters under running water.
Step 1:contrarotate the
Coarse filter ,and then lift it up;
Never run the dishwasher without the filters in place. When cleaning the filters, don't knock on them.
Otherwise, the filters could be contorted and the performance of dishwasher could be debased.
Cleaning the Spray Arms
It is necessary to clean the spray arms regularly for hard
water chemicals will clog the spray arm jets and bearings.
To remove the spray arms, screw off the nut clockwise to
take out the washer on top of the spray arm and remove the
arm. Wash the arms in soapy and warm water and use a soft
brush to clean the jets. Replace them after rinsing thoroughly.
Caring for the Dishwasher
To clean the control panel, use a lightly dampened cloth then
dry thoroughly.
To clean the exterior, use a good appliance polish wax.
Never use sharp objects, scouring pads or harsh cleaners
on any part of the dishwasher.
Protect Against Freezing
If your dishwasher is left in an unheated place during the winter, ask a service technical to:
1.Cut off electrical power to the dishwasher.
2.Turn off the water supply and disconnect the water inlet pipe from the water valve.
3.Drain water from the inlet pipe and water valve. (Use a pan to catch the water)
4.Reconnect the water inlet pipe to the water valve.
5.Remove the filter in the tub and the bottom and use a sponge to use up water in sump
Cleaning the Door
Step 2:lift the Flat filter up
To clean the edge around the door, you should use only a soft warm, damp rag. To prevent
penetration of water into the door lock and electrical components, do not use a spray cleaner of any
Also, never use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads on the outer surfaces because they will scratch
the finish. Some papers towels can also scratch or leave marks on the surface.
NOTE: If operate from step 1 to step 2, the filter system will be removed; while operate from step 2
to step 1, the filter system will be installed.
Filter assembly
For best performance and results, the filter assembly must be cleaned. The filter efficiently removes
food particles from the wash water, allowing it to be recirculated during the cycle. For this reason, it
is a good idea to remove the larger food particles trapped in the filter after each wash cycle by rinsing
the semicircular filter and cup under running water. To remove the filter assembly, pull on the cup
handle in the upward direction. The entire filter assembly should be cleaned once a week. To clean
the coarse filter and the micro filter, use a cleaning brush. Then, reassemble the filter parts as shown
in the figures above and reinsert the entire assembly in the dishwasher, positioning in its seat and
pressing downward. The dishwasher must never be used without the filters. Improper replacement
of the filter may reduce the performance level of the appliance and damage dishes and utensils.
Never use a spray cleaner to clean the door panel for it could damage the door lock and electrical
components. It is not allowed to use the abrasive agent or some paper towel because of the risk of
scratching or leaving spots on the stainless steel surface.
How to Keep Your Dishwasher in Shape
After Every Wash
When You Go on holiday
After every wash, turn off the water supply
to the appliance and leave the door slightly
ajar so that moisture and odors are not
trapped inside.
When you go on holiday, it is
recommended that you run a wash cycle
with the dishwasher empty and then
remove the plug from the socket, turn off
the water supply and leave the door of the
appliance slightly ajar. This will help the
seals last longer and prevent odors from
forming in the appliance.
Remove the Plug
Before cleaning or performing
maintenance, always remove the plug from
the socket. Do not run risks.
3. Position the dishwasher on a level and sturdy floor. If the floor is uneven, the front feet of the
appliance may be adjusted until it reaches a horizontal position (the angle of inclination must not
exceed 2 degrees). 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 operation.
Connecting the water and electricity supplies
Connection to the water and electricity supplies should only be performed by a qualified
The dishwasher should not stand on top of the water hoses or the electricity supply cable
The appliance must be connected to the water supply network using new piping. Do not use old
Moving the Appliance
No Solvents or Abrasive Cleaning
To clean the exterior and rubber parts of
the dishwasher, do not use solvents or
abrasive cleaning products. Use only a
cloth and warm soapy water. To remove
spots or stains from the surface of the
interior, use a cloth dampened with water
and a little white vinegar, or a cleaning
product made specifically for dishwashers.
If the appliance must be moved, try to keep
it in the vertical position. If absolutely
necessary, it can be positioned on its back.
Connecting the water inlet hose
Connect the cold water supply hose to a threaded 3/4(inch)
connector and make sure that it is fastened tightly in place.
If the water pipes are new or have not been used for an
extended period of time, let the water run to make sure that
the water is clear and free of impurities. If this precaution is
not taken, there is a risk that the water inlet can get blocked
and the appliance could be damaged.
One of the factors that cause odors to form
in the dishwasher is food that remains
trapped in the seals. Periodic cleaning with
a damp sponge will prevent this.
8. Installation
Keep this instruction manual in a safe place for future reference. If the appliance is sold, given
away or moved, please ensure the manual is kept with the machine, so that the new owner may
benefit from the advice contained within it.
Please read this instruction manual carefully: it contains important information regarding the safe
installation, use and maintenance of the appliance.
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.
Positioning and leveling
1. Remove the appliance from all packaging and check that it has not been damaged during
transportation. If it has been damaged, contact the retailer and do not proceed and further with the
installation process.
2. Check the dishwasher by placing it so that its sides or back panel are in contact with the adjacent
cabinets or even with the wall. This appliance can also be recessed under a single work top (see
the Assembly instruction sheet).
Connecting the water outlet hose
Fit the drainage hose of your machine to the drainage pipe
without bending.
Electrical Shock Hazard!
Disconnect electrical power before
installing dishwasher.
Failure to do so can result in death or
electrical shock.
min 40mm
The installation of the pipes
and electrical equipments
should be done by professionals.
If the length of the hose is not sufficient, apply to the
authorized service for an extension made from the same
material as the original. Remember that the length of the
hose should not exceed 4meters even when with an
If the drainage hose is longer than 4 m. the dishes will not
be cleaned properly secure your hose firmly to the drainage
pipe to avoid it coming off during the washing process.
Electrical connection
Before inserting the plug into the electrical socket, make sure that:
●the socket is earthed and complies with current regulations;
●the socket can withstand the maximum load of the appliance, which is indicated on the data plate
located on the inside of the door(see description of the appliance);
●the power supply voltage falls within the values indicated on the data plate on the inside of the door;
●the socket is compatible with the plug of the appliance. If this is not the case, ask an authorised
technician to replace the plug (see assistance); do not use extension cables or multiple sockets.
For optional
Once the appliance has been installed, the power supply cable and the electrical socket should
be easily accessible.
The cable should not be bent or compressed.
If the power supply cable is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or its Technical
Assistance Service in order to prevent all potential hazards.(See Assistance)
The company shall not be held responsible for any incidents that occur if these regulations are
not observed.
Advice regarding the first wash cycle
After the appliance has been installed, immediately before running the first wash cycle, completely
fill the dispenser of rinse (see Rinse aid ).
Start of Dishwasher
The followings should be checked before starting the dishwasher:
1 Whether the dishwasher is level and fixed
2 Whether the inlet valve is opened
3 Whether there is leakage at the connections of the conducts
4 Whether the wires are tightly connected
