The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each wash cycle following the instructions provided i n the" Wash Cycle
Table".Your dishwashers use less detergent and rinse aid than conventional dishwashers. Generally, only one tablespoon of
detergent is needed for a 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.
If the water isn't too hard, you may also prevent the formation of deposits by adding detergent.
For the dosage of detergent , please refer to the "Detergent" ("section entitle wash cycle table")
for main wash
for pre-wash
To remove hard water spots, try the following:
Run dishes through a normal wash program.
Remove all metal dishware, such as cutlery, pans, etc.,
from the dishwasher.
Do not add detergent.
Pour two cups of vinegar into a bowl and set the bowl face
up on the lower rack of the dishwasher.
Run the dishes through a normal wash program.
If this doesn't work, try the same process with 1 / 4 cup of
citric acid crystals instead of vinegar.
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.
Follow the detergent manufacture's recommendation
on detergent.
Dishwasher detergent is corrosive! Take care to keep it out
of reach of children.
To open the dispenser, turn the cap to the "open" (left)
arrow and lift it out.
Pour in rinse -aid into the container is fill (approx . 140 ml) ,
Being careful not to overfill.
Replace the cap by inserting it aligned w ith "open" arrow
and turning i t to the closed (right) arrow.
Your dishwashers are designed to use liquid rinse aids. The
rinse aid dispenser is located inside the door next to the
detergent dispenser.
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 performance by allowing water
to "sheet" off the dishes.
Be careful not to overfill the dispenser, because this could
cause oversudsing. Wipe away any spills with a damp cloth.
Don't forget to replace the cap before you close the dishwasher
If you have soft water, you may not need rinse aid for it may
cause a white film to develop on your dishes.
Follow the rinse-aid manufactory's recommendations
on rinse-aid.
A measured amount of rinse-aid is released during the final rinse. As with detergent, the amount
of rinse-aid needed for your dishes depends on the hardness of the water in your area. Too much
rinse-aid can result in lather of foaming and cause cloudiness or steaks on your dishes. If the
water in your area is very soft, you may not need rinse-aid. If you do,you can dilute the rinse-aid
with an equal amount of water.
The rinse-aid dispenser has six or four settings. Always start with the dispenser set on " 2 ". If
spots and poor drying are problems, increase the amount of rinse aid dispensed by removing the
dispenserlid and rotating the dial to "3". 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. We suggest you
to set on "4" .(Factory value is "4".)
If there is no rinse aid warning light in the control panel, you can judge the amount of rinse aid by the following means. The
black dot on the rinse aid dispenser indicates the amount of rinse aid in the dispenser. As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of
the black 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 indi cator changes, as illustrated below.
3 / 4 full
1 / 2 full
1 / 4 full - Should refill to el iminate spotting
The upper rack is designed to hold more delicate and lighter dishware such as glasses, coffee and tea cup and saucers, as well
as plates, small bowls and shallow pans(as long as they are not too dirty).
Position the dishes and cookware so that they do not get moved
by the spray of water.
The upper rack can be adjusted for height by putting wheels of
different height into the rails.
For the below placement method of Rack, the adjustment position
of Upper Rack must be as below shown on the illustration.
If required,the height of the upper rack can be adjuested in order to creat more space for large utensils either in the upper rack
or lower rack. The upper rack can be adjusted for height by putting wheels of different height into the rails.
Long items,serving cutlery,salad servers or knives should be placed on the shelf so that they do not obstruct the rotation of the
spray arms. The shelf can be folded back or removed when not required for use.
Dessert dishes
We recommend that you place large items which are most difficult to clean into the lower rack: pots, pans, lids,
serving dishes and bowls, as shown in the figure to the right.
It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the side of the racks in order to avoid bl ocking the rotation of the
top spray arm.
Pots, serving bowls, etc, must always be placed top down.
Deep pots should be slanted to allow water to flow out.
The bottom rack feature fold down tine rows so that larger or more pots and pans can be loaded.
Dessert dishes
Soup plates
Dinner plates
Silverware basket
To improve stacking of pots and pans,
the spikes can be folded down.
Silverware should be placed in the silverware basket with handles at the bottom: If the rack has side baskets, the spoon should
be loaded individually into the appropriate slots, Especially long utensils should be placed in the horizontal position at the
front of the upper rack.

For your convenience, we have placed the drain pump and filtering system within easy reach inside the tub. There are three
components of the filtering system: the main filter, the coarse filter, and the fine filter.
Main filter
Food and soil particles trapped by this fil ter are pulverized by a special jet on the lower spray
arm and washed down the drain.
Coarse fi lter
Larger items, such as pieces of bone or glass, that could clog the drain are trapped in the
coarse filter. To remove an item caught in this filter, gently squeeze the tabs on top of this
filter and lift it out.
Fine filter
This filter holds soil and food residue in the sump area and prevents it from being
redeposited on the dishes during a cycle.
ATTENTION: Do not put the fine filter upside down .
If your dishwasher is left in an unheated place during the winter, ask a service technician to:
Cut off electrical power to the dishwasher.
Reconnect the water inlet pipe to the
water valve.
Turn off the water supply and disconnect the water
inlet pipe from the water valve.
Remove the filter in the tub the bottom
and use a sponge to soak up water
in sump.
3 Drain water from the inlet pipe and water valve.
(Use a pan to catch the water.)
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 arm, 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 them
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 se micircular
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 fine filter, use a cleaning brush. Then, reassemble
the filter parts as shown in the figures left and reinsert the entire assembly in the
dishwasher, positioning in its seat and pressing downward.
The dishwasher must never be used without the fi lters in pl ace . Improper replacement of the
filter may reduce the performance level of the appliance and cause damage to the appliance .
When cleaning the filters, don't knock on them .Otherwise the filters could be contorted and the performance of dishwasher could
be debased.
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 kind.
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.
Never use a spray cleaner to clean the door panel for it could damage the door l ock and electrical components. It is not allowed
to use the abrasive agent or some paper towel becauseof the risk of scratching or leaving spots on the stainless steel surface.
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 recommened 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
within the appliance.
Before cleaning or performing maintenance, always
remove the plug from the socket. Do not run risks.
If the appliance must be moved, try to keep it in the vertical
position.If absolutely necessary, it can be positioned on
its back.
To clean the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher,
do not use solvents or abrasive cleaning products.
Rather, 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.
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
from occurring.
Please see the rating lable to know the rating voltage and connect the dishwasher to appropriate power supply,Use required fuse
12 amp. Fused electrical supply is required-copper wire only. Time delay fuse or circuit breaker recommended and provide
separate circuit serving only this appliance. Outlet should be placed in adjacent cabinet.
After making sure that the voltage and the frequency values for the current in the home
correspond to those on the rating plate and that the electrical system is sized for the
maximum voltage on the rating plate, insert the plug into an electrical socket which is
earthed properly. If the electrical socket to which the appliance must be connected is not
appropriate for the pl ug , replace the socket,rather than using a adaptors or the like as
they could cause overheating and burns.
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 damage the appliance.
The water supply to the appliance can also be connected to the house hot water line
(centralized system, heating system),as long as it does not exceed a temperature of 60 C.
In this case, the wash cycle time will be shortened by about 15 minutes and the wash
efficiency slightly reduced.
The connection must be made to the hot water line following the same procedures as those
for the connection to the cold water line.
Position the appliance in the desired location. The back should rest against the wall behind it, and the sides, along the adjacent
cabinets or wall. The dishwasher is equipped with water supply and drain hoses that can be positioned to the right or the left to
facilitate proper installation.
Once the appliance is positioned,adjust the feet (screwing them in or out) to adjust the
height of the dishwasher, making it level. In any case ,the appliance should not be inclined
more than 2 .
Insert the drain hose into a drain pipe with a minimum diameter of 40 mm, or let it run into the sink, making sure to avoid bending
or crimping it. Use the special plastic support that attached with the appliance. The free end of the hose must be at a height
between 400 and 1000mm and must not be immersed in water.
Inlet pipe connector Drain pipe connector
Min 100mm
If the sink is 1000 higher from the floor, the excess water in hoses cannot
be drained directly into the sink. It will be necessary to drain excess
water from hoses into a bucket or suitable container that is held outside and lower
than the sink.
In order to avoid more water staying in the inlet hose,
please close the hydrant after using.(For the models: no safety inlet hose.)
