Connection to the mains water supply must be carried out by a qualified technician in compliance with the manufacturer's instructions and applicable local safety regulations.

All local water board regulations must be complied with. Water supply pressure: 0.03 - 1.0 MPa.

The inlet hose must be securely clamped to the water tap to prevent leaks.

The inlet water temperature varies according to the model installed. Inlet hose marked: "25°C Max": up to a maximum of 25°C. Other models: up to a maximum of 60°C.

Depending on the appliance model, the solenoid valve of the inlet hose will be activated by the mains voltage

(see assembly instructions).

Make sure the inlet and drain hoses are kink-free and are not crushed.

Fix the drain hose to the siphon with a clamp to prevent it from coming off during operation.

When installing the appliance, make sure water can drain freely (remove the siphon plug if necessary).

Do not use old or damaged hoses. Use only the hoses provided or new ones, which can be requested from the

After-Sales Service.

If hoses are not long enough, contact your local dealer.

Do not cut hoses and, in the case of appliances fitted with a waterstop system, do not immerse the plastic casing containing the inlet hose in water.

Before using the appliance for the first time, check the water inlet and drain hose for leaks.

All local electricity board regulations must be complied with.

Voltage information is shown on the rating plate mounted inside the door on the right hand side.

The appliance must be earthed as prescribed by law.

Do not use extension leads or multiple adapters.

If the power cable is damaged, replace it with an identical one. The power cable must only be replaced by a qualified technician.

After appliance installation, the mains plug must be easily accessible so that the appliance can be unplugged if necessary at any time.

For Austria:

If a fault current switch is fitted upline of the appliance, this must be pulse current-sensitive.

During assembly the appliance must be unplugged from the mains.

Set any electrical screwdrivers to a low torque.

Leave a gap of at least 3 mm between the top edge of the wooden door and the worktop.

PROGRAMME SELECTION

Press the button “Select programme” or the programme selector to display the selected programme. The appliance must be switched on. If required, select possible options. The corresponding indicator lights up. The correct programme and the selectable functions are given in table 1.1 on page 1.

Programme times stated in the table were obtained under normal conditions and may vary depending on conditions. Differences of up to 20 minutes are possible with sensor programmes as a result of the appliance's automatic calibration system.

HOW TO FILL THE DETERGENT DISPENSER

Only fill the detergent dispenser prior to starting a wash programme. Only use detergents specially recommended for dishwashers, observing the manufacturer's recommended dosage.

Observe the manufacturer's safety warnings!

Open the detergent dispenser compartments by pushing the left lever (lever 1) of the dispenser.

a. Powder/gel/tabs

Fill the detergent dispenser compartments in accordance with the wash programme selected (table 1.1).

Programmes without pre-wash: pour the entire recommended dosage into compartment A.

Programmes with pre-wash: Lever 1 pour 2/3 of the recommended dosage into the large compartment

A and 1/3 into the small compartment B.

Dishwasher tabs should be placed, according to the manufacturer's recommendations, in compartment A.

If the “Half load” option is selected, detergent dosage should be reduced by approximately 1/3.

b. Combined action detergents (2 in 1/3 in 1/... etc.)

Combined action detergents should be placed, according to the manufacturer's recommendations, in compartment A.

Firmly press the detergent compartment lid shut after filling.

Large compartment A

Small compartment B

Detergents with rinse aid incorporated may be effective only with longer programmes. In the case of shorter programmes, detergent residue may be a problem (if necessary, use powder detergent). Detergents with rinse aid incorporated tend to form excess suds.

The guarantee is not applicable if faults are caused by the use of these products.

HOW TO CHECK/FILL/ADJUST RINSE AID

Not necessary when using a combined action detergent.

a. How to check the rinse aid level

Check the visual indicator C on the rinse aid dispenser: dark = sufficient rinse aid, clear = add rinse aid.

In the case of appliances with an electric indicator on the

3. HOW TO USE THE APPLIANCE

c. How to adjust the rinse aid dosage regulator

The rinse aid dosage can be adjusted to the detergent used. The lower the setting, the less rinse aid is dispensed (factory setting: position 4).

Press the lever 2 to open the cover.

Using a coin or similar object, turn the arrow to the desired setting.

After adjusting the rinse aid setting, shut the cover again.

If there are streaks: reduce the dosage by turning the dial to a lower setting (1-3). If crockery is not perfectly dry: increase the dosage by turning the dial to a higher setting (5-6). Plastic dishes have more difficulty drying and a higher rinse aid setting will not improve the situation.

HOW TO CHECK/FILL/ADJUST SALT

Only use regeneration salt specifically for dishwashers.

a. How to check the salt level

Depending on the model, check the visual indicator . The window on the salt reservoir cap is clear when salt needs to be added and orange when the salt present is sufficient. In the case of appliances with an electric indicator on the control panel, the salt indicator lamp lights up red when salt needs to be added.

b. How to fill the salt container

- Remove the lower rack.

- Turn the salt container cap anti-clockwise to open it.

- When using the dishwasher for the first time, fill the salt container to the rim with water.

- Using the funnel provided, fill with regeneration salt to the rim (the first time, min. 1.5 kg/max. 2 kg).

- Stir with the handle of a wooden spoon to help dissolve the salt.

- Close the cap of the salt container by turning it clockwise.

- Reinsert the lower rack.

4

Once regeneration salt is added, immediately start a wash programme (the “Pre-wash” programme alone is not sufficient). Residual saline solution or grains of salt can lead to deepdown corrosion, irreparably damaging the stainless steel components. The guarantee is not applicable if faults are caused by such circumstances.

The salt level indicator lamp may remain lit for the duration of several wash cycles.

If the water hardness level falls within category 1 (soft), no salt is required.

c. How to set the water hardness level

- Switch on the appliance.

- Select the 2nd programme “P2” - consult the table 1.1 in chapter 1.

- Press the START button for at least 5 seconds until the START indicator lamp flashes.

- The set water hardness level is shown on the display (if present) or the START button flashes.

- With each successive touch of the START button the setting increases and when it reaches 7 it returns to 1 again.

- The appliance must be switched off to memorise the new setting.

If necessary, use more detergent, observing the manufacturer’s indications as regards dosage. Always store detergent in a dry place and do not store it for excessively long periods of time.

For heavily soiled crockery, select a wash programme with a higher temperature (see table 1.1 on the first page).

If you select the “Half load/Multizone” function (if available), remember to load only the upper rack or only the lower rack to increase washing power and thus obtain optimum wash results.

5. WHAT TO DO IF...

Possible causes/solutions

In the event of frequent use of low temperature programmes

(50°C or lower) (if available), every now and again select a higher temperature programme

The spray arms must not be clogged, the filters must not be dirty and must be fitted correctly (see the instructions in

“Maintenance and installation”).

The spray arms must be able to turn freely and must not be impeded by crockery or cutlery.

In areas with very hard water, more regeneration salt needs to be added (see page 4, “How to check/fill/adjust salt”).

Close the salt container lid properly.

If you use a combined action detergent which includes salt, do not add any additional regeneration salt.

Salty or acidic food residues can cause rust marks even on stainless steel cutlery.

To avoid this, always use the pre-wash programme if the dishes are to be washed later.

In the presence of marks, increase the rinse aid dosage (see page 3, “How to check/fill/adjust rinse aid”).

If you use a combined action detergent, possibly add more rinse aid.

In the presence of streaks, reduce the rinse aid dosage (page 3,

“How to check/fill/adjust rinse aid”). If you use a combined action detergent which includes rinse aid, do not add any additional rinse aid.

Only use the amount of detergent/rinse aid required, since excessive amounts can lead to excess suds.

Only use dishwasher-proof crockery and dishes.

Tomato sauce, for example, can lead to discolouring of plastic parts.

Powder detergent is recommended as it allows slightly higher doses to be used for improved whitening. Programmes with higher wash temperatures should be used.

Arrange crockery so that water does not collect in cavities.

Increase the dosage of rinse aid (see page 3, “How to check/fill/ adjust rinse aid”).

Dishes dry better if the dishwasher door is left open a little before unloading; this allows the steam to dissipate.

With the Rapid 40°C programme (if available), dishes may not be perfectly dry since this is a short programme. If necessary, select a longer programme.

If, after carrying out the above checks, the fault persists, disconnect the mains plug and turn off the water tap. Contact the After-sales Service (see warranty).

Before contacting our After-Sales Service, take note of the following:

- the description of the fault,

- the appliance type and model,

- the service code (the number indicated on the adhesive rating plate) inside the door on the right-hand side:
