Saving energy and respecting the environment

Saving water and energy

• Only begin a wash cycle when the dishwasher is full. While waiting for the dishwasher to be filled, prevent unpleasant odours with the Soak cycle

(if available, see Wash Cycles)


• Select a wash cycle that is suited to the type of crockery and to the soil level using the Table of Wash Cycles:

- For dishes with a normal soil level, use the Eco wash cycle, which guarantees low energy and water consumption levels.

- If the load is smaller than usual activate the Half Load option

(see Special wash cycles and options, if available).

• If your electricity supply contract gives details of electricity-saving time bands, run the wash cycles when electricity prices are lower. The DELAYED START option can help you organise the wash cycles accordingly

( see Special wash cycles and options, if available).

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

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.

Connecting the water inlet hose

• To a 3/4” gas cold or hot water connection point (max.


• Run the water until it is perfectly clear.

• Screw the inlet hose tightly into position and turn off the tap.

If the inlet hose is not long enough, contact a specialist store or an authorised technician

(see Assistance)


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.

Connecting the water outlet hose

Connect the outlet hose to a drain duct with a minimum diameter of 2 cm. (A)

The outlet hose connection must be at a height ranging from

40 to 80 cm from the floor or surface where the dishwasher rests.

MAX 80 cm

MIN 40 cm

Before connecting the water outlet hose to the sink drain, remove the plastic plug (B).

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 Acqua Stop*, which guarantees antiflooding 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.

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 as shown on the data plate located on the inside of the door

(see chapter 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.

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, have it replaced by the manufacturer or its authorised Technical Assistance

Service in order to prevent all potential hazards.



The Company shall not be held responsible for any incidents, if these regulations are not observed.

Positioning and levelling

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

Assembly instruction sheet)



(see the



. 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.

(see Building-in instruction sheet attached to the documentation)


Only available in selected models.


Advice regarding the first wash cycle

After the installation, remove the stoppers from the racks and the retaining elastic elements from the upper rack

(if any).

Water softener settings

Before starting the first wash cycle, set the hardness level of the water from the mains supply.

(see chapter Rinse aid and refined salt).

First load the softener tank with water, then introduce about

1 kg of salt. It is perfectly normal for water to flow out.

As soon as this procedure is complete, run a wash cycle.

Only use salt that has been specifically designed for dishwashers.

After the salt has been poured into the machine, the LOW

SALT indicator light switches off.

If the salt container is not filled, the water softener and the heating element may be damaged as a result.

The machine has a buzzer/set of tones

(depending on the dishwasher model ) to inform the user that a command has

been implemented: power on, cycle end etc.

The symbols/indicator lights/LEDs on the control panel/ display may vary in colour and may have a flashing or fixed light

(depending on the dishwasher model)


The display provides useful information concerning the type of wash cycle, drying/wash-cycle phase, remaining time, temperature etc.

Refined Salt and Rinse Aid


Only use products which have been specifically designed for dishwashers. Do not use table salt or industrial salt.

(Follow the instructions given on the packaging.)

If you are using a multi-function product, 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.)

If you do not add salt or rinse aid, the LOW SALT





indicator lights will remain lit.

Measuring out the refined salt

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 dispenser be never empty.

• It is important to set the water hardness.

The salt dispenser is located in the lower part of the dishwasher

(see Description)

and should be filled:

• When the LOW RINSE AID indicator light in the control panel is lit



• When the green float


on the cap of the salt dispenser is no longer visible.

• See autonomy in the water hardness table.

1. Remove the lower rack and unscrew the container cap (anticlockwise).

2. Only the first time you do this: fill the water dispenser up to the edge.

3. Position the funnel

(see figure)

and fill the salt container 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; rinse the cap under running water and then screw it on.

It is advisable to perform this procedure every time you add salt to the container.

Make sure the cap is screwed on tightly, so that no detergent can get into the container during the wash cycle (this could damage the water softener beyond repair).

Whenever you need to add salt, we recommend carrying out the procedure before the washing cycle is started.

Setting the water hardness

For perfect water softener operation, it is essential that the adjustment be based on the water hardness in your house. Ask your local water supplier for this information. The factory setting is for medium water hardness.

• Switch the dishwasher on using the On/Off button.

• Switch it off using the On/Off button

for 5 seconds until • Hold down the START/PAUSE button you hear a beep.

• Switch it on using the On/Off button

• Access the adjustment menu - the salt indicator light is lit.

• Press button P to select the desired hardness level (see hardness table).

• Switch it off using the On/Off button

• Setting is complete!

(°dH = hardness measured in German degrees - °f = hardness measured in French degrees – mmol/l = millimoles per litre)

Measuring out the rinse aid

Rinse aid makes dish DRYING easier. The rinse aid dispenser should be filled:

• When the LOW RINSE AID indicator light on the panel/display is lit



• When the dark optical indicator


on the dispenser door “D” becomes transparent.



1. Open the dispenser “D” by pressing and pulling up the tab on the lid;

2. Carefully introduce the rinse aid as far as the maximum reference notch in 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 amount of rinse aid

If you are not completely satisfied with the drying results, you may want to adjust the quantity of rinse aid used.

• Switch the dishwasher on using the On/Off button.

• Switch it off using the On/Off button

• Press the START/PAUSE button be heard.

three times - a beep will

• Switch it on using the On/Off button

• Access the adjustment menu - the rinse-aid indicator light is lit.

• 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, the rinse aid will not be supplied and the low rinse aid indicator light will not be lit if you run out of it.

A maximum of 4 levels can be set according to the dishwasher model. The factory setting is for a medium level.

• 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 high number (3-4).


Only available in selected models.


Loading the racks


Before loading the racks, remove all food residues from the crockery and empty liquids from glasses and containers. No

preventive rinsing is needed 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.

Make sure that the lids, handles, trays and frying pans do not prevent the spray arms from rotating. Place any small items in the cutlery basket.

Since plastic dishes and non-stick frying pans usually retain more water drops, their drying will be not so good as that of ceramic or stainless-steel dishes.

Lightweight items such as plastic containers should be placed in the upper rack and arranged so that they cannot move.

After loading the appliance, make sure that the spray arms can rotate freely.

Lower rack

The lower rack can hold pans, lids, dishes, salad bowls, cutlery etc. Large plates and lids should ideally be placed at the sides.

Several dishwasher models are fitted with tip-up sectors



They can be used in a vertical position when arranging dishes or in a horizontal position (lower) to load pans and salad bowls easily.

Cutlery basket

The modular basket is equipped with top grilles for improved cutlery arrangement. The cutlery basket should be positioned

only at the front of the 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

Upper rack

Load this rack with delicate and lightweight crockery such as glasses, cups, saucers and shallow salad bowls.

Very soiled dishes and pans should be placed in the lower rack because in this sector the water sprays are stronger and allow a higher washing performance.

Several dishwasher models are fitted with tip-up sectors



They can be used in a vertical position when arranging tea/ dessert saucers or in a lower position to load bowls and food containers.


Only available in selected models with different numbers and positions.



Tip-up compartments with adjustable position

The side tip-up compartments can be positioned at three different heights to optimize the arrangement of crockery inside the rack.

Wine glasses can be placed safely in the tip-up compartments by inserting the stem of each glass into the corresponding slots.

For optimum drying results incline the tip-up compartments more. To change the inclination, pull up the tip-up compartment, slide it slightly and position it as you wish.

The upper rack can be adjusted for height based on requirements: high position to place bulky crockery in the lower rack and low position to make the most of the tip-up compartments/sectors by creating more space upwards.

Adjusting the height of the upper rack

In order to make it easier to arrange the crockery, the upper rack may be moved to a higher or lower position.

The height of the upper rack should be adjusted WHEN THE


NEVER raise or lower the rack on one side only.

Cutlery tray


Some dishwasher models are fitted with a sliding tray which can be used to hold serving utensils or small cups. For optimum washing performance avoid positioning bulky crockery directly below the tray. The cutlery tray can be removed (see Figure).

If the rack is equipped with a Lift-Up



(see figure)

, lift it up by holding its sides. To restore the lower position, press the levers (A) at the sides of the rack and follow the rack down.

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

Caused by:

• Type of glass and glass production process.

• Chemical composition of detergent.

• Water temperature of rinse cycle.


• 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.


Only available in selected models.


Detergent and dishwasher use

Measuring out the detergent

A good wash result also depends on the correct amount of detergent being used. Exceeding the stated amount does not result in a more effective wash and increases environmental pollution.

Based on how soiled the items are, the amount can be adjusted to individual cases using powder or liquid detergent.

In the case of normally soiled items, use approximately either

35 gr (powder detergent) or 35 ml (liquid detergent). 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.

For good washing results also follow the instructions shown on the detergent box.

For further questions please ask the detergent producers.

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 Table of wash cycles to add the proper quantity. Compartment B comprises a level showing the maximum quantity of liquid or powder detergent that can be added to each cycle.

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 wash cycle.

If all-in-one detergents are used, we recommend using the TABS option, because it adjusts the cycle so that the best washing and drying results are always achieved.

Only use detergent which has been specifically designed for dishwashers.

DO NOT USE washing up liquid.

Using excessive detergent may result in foam residues remaining in the machine after the cycle has ended.

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.

Starting the dishwasher

1. Turn the water tap on.

2. Press the ON/OFF button.

3. Open the door and pour in a suitable amount of detergent

(see below).

4. Load the racks (see Loading the racks) and shut the door.

5. Select the wash cycle in accordance with the type of crockery and its soil level

(see Table of wash cycles)

by pressing the P button.

6. Select the wash options


(see Special wash cycles and options.)

7. Start the cycle by pressing the Start/Pause button: The wash indicator light goes on and the time left to the end of the cycle appears on the display together with the wash-cycle number.

8. At the end of the cycle, the display shows END. Switch off the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF button, shut off the water tap and unplug the appliance from the electricity socket.

9. Wait a few minutes before removing the crockery to avoid getting burnt. Unload the racks, beginning with the lower level.

The machine will switch off automatically during long periods of inactivity in order to minimise electricity consumption.



some models of dishwasher are equipped with a special sensor which can be used to assess the level of soiling and automatically select the most efficient and economic wash cycle accordingly. The duration of the auto wash cycles may vary due to the operation of the sensor.

Changing a wash cycle in progress

If a mistake was made in the wash-cycle selection process, it is possible to change the cycle provided that it has only just begun:

Once the wash cycle has started, in order to change the wash cycle switch off the machine by pressing and holding the ON/

OFF/Reset button. Switch it back on using the same button and select the desired wash cycle and options.

Adding extra crockery

Press the Start/Pause button and open the door, taking care to avoid the escaping steam. Then place the crockery inside the dishwasher. Press the Start/Pause button: The cycle will start again after a long beep has been emitted.

If the delayed start has been set, at the end of the countdown the wash cycle will not start. It will stay in Pause mode.

Press the Start/Pause button to pause the machine; the wash cycle is stopped.

At this stage the wash cycle cannot be changed.

Care and maintenance


Shutting off the water and electricity supplies

• Turn off the water tap after every wash cycle to avoid leaks.

• Always unplug the appliance when cleaning it and when performing maintenance work.

Cleaning the dishwasher

• 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.

• Any marks on the inside of the appliance may be removed using a cloth dampened with water and a little vinegar.

Preventing unpleasant odours

• 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.

Cleaning the spray arms

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.

The two spray arms may both be removed.

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.

Cleaning the filters

The filter assembly consists of three filters which remove food residues from the washing water and then recirculate the water.

They must be cleaned if you wish to achieve the best results in every wash.

Clean the filters regularly.

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 C 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 A.

(fig. 3).

4. Inspect the trap and remove any food residues. NEVER

REMOVE the wash-cycle pump protection

(black detail) (fig.4).

The lower spray arm can be removed by pressing on the side tabs and 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.

Clean the water inlet filter at the tap outlet regularly.

- Turn off the water tap.

- Unscrew the end of the water inlet hose, remove the filter and clean it carefully under running water.

- Re-place the filter and screw the water hose back into position.

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.

Leaving the machine unused for extended periods

• Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply and shut off the water tap.

• Leave the door of the appliance ajar.

• When you return, run a wash cycle when the dishwasher is empty.
