How to load your dishes
D ISHWASHER
Before washing, a few small steps can help you get a better wash and keep your dishwasher for longer.
Remove the largest scraps of food left over on your plates, soak saucepans and frying pans with tough
incrustations. After loading your dishes, make sure the blades on the sprayer arm turn well.Do not
place glasses and cups on top of one another, and make sure the dishes are not touching.
First of all.
Before placing the dishes in the
racks, remove the largest scraps
of food left over on your plates, you
will thus avoid blocking the filter,
which would reduce the efficacy
of the wash.
If the saucepans and frying pans
are very dirty, allow them to soak
before being washed. To make it
easier to load your dishes, pull the
racks out.
What goes into the
lower rack?
We recommend you place the most
difficult dishes to wash into the
lower rack: saucepans, lids, soup
dishes and plates (a load example
is shown in the photo).
• Serving dishes and large
lids: place them on the sides
of the rack.
• Saucepans, salad bowls:
must always be placed upside
down
• Very deep dishes: place
them obliquely, thus allowing
water to run down them and
cleaning them better
A
What goes into the
upper rack?
Place delicate and lightweight
dishes in the upper rack: glasses,
tea cups and coffee cups, saucers but plates too - shallow salad bowls,
slightly dirty frying pans and
shallow pans.
Position lightweight dishes in such
as way as to avoid their being
moved by the spray of water.
How to adjust the top
rack.
The upper rack can be set in high
or low position to enable you to
organise your dishes effortlessly.
Load
The lower rack has tip-up sectors
(see figure B), so you can place
even more saucepans and frying
pans or make room for the larger
ones.

Place the cutlery with the handles
at the bottom; if the basket is the
one with side inserts, then insert
the tea spoons one by one into the
slots (see figure A).
It is best if you place longer utensils
horizontally at the front of the upper
rack.
After loading the dishes, remember
to check that the blades on the
sprayer arms can turn freely
without hitting against any dishes
Open the rail stop flaps and pull the
rack out completely. Now place it in
high or low position, then slide it
along the guide rails until the front
wheels also go in. Now close the rail
stop flaps. Follow the sequence of
actions illustrated in figure "F".

Starting the dishwasher
Ready, steady, go!
You have loaded your dishes and you now have
to set the wash cycle. It takes just one minute
to learn how
First of all.
Turn on the water tap completely
and press ON-OFF button "A": a
short beep will sound and indicator
light "B" will come on. Now the
appliance is on and ready to be programmed.
Selecting the wash cycle.
To select a wash cycle, turn knob
"D" clockwise until the reference
notchontheknobcorrespondswith
the number or symbol for the cycle you wish to set (have a look at
the wash cycle table on page 6).
After a few seconds, you will hear
a short beep: the wash cycle has
begun and it is not advisable to
make any changes at this point.
The dishwasher informs
you.
Your dishwasher is fitted with indicator lights (G) that come on to
show you at which point the wash
cycle is at.
Here are the symbols corresponding to each cycle phase:
Starting from the indicator light on
the left moving towards the one on
the right: pre-wash, wash, rinses,
drying.
At all times, your dishwasher tells
you where it is at.
Modifying a wash cycle in
progress.
But if you have chosen the wrong
cycle, not to worry! You can modify
the wash cycle in progress, if it has
only just started. Turn the knob
anti-clockwise and set it to Reset,
after a few seconds you will hear 3
beeps and indicator light "G" will
go out: this means all the settings
have been cancelled. You are now
free to re-set the correct wash cycle.
You've left out a dish?
Well, it happens to everyone. Interrupt the wash cycle by pressing the
ON-OFF button, insert the dish you
had forgotten and press the ONOFF button again. The cycle will
start up from where you interrupted
it.
Finished?
The end of the wash cycle is signalled by 2 short beeps and a flashing drying phase indicator light. Set
the knob to the Reset position to
clear all settings.
Turn the appliance off by pressing
button "A", thus cutting off the electricity supply.
Turn off the water tap.
Wait a few minutes before unloading the dishes: they are very hot! If
you wait a little while, they dry
better thanks to the steam.
Empty the lower rack first.
There's been a power failure? Have you opened the
dishwasher door?
The wash cycle stops and then restarts when the electricity comes
back on or when you shut the door.
Everything is under control!
Make sure the
wash cycle has
ended before
removing the
dishes!
You can cancel
the wash cycle
in progress, if it
has only just
started.
4 ARISTON DISHWASHER - Instructions for installation and use
You want to wash on one
rack only? Remember to
use half the amount of detergent.
Your dishwasher also allows you to

electricity. Before setting any wash
cycle, press button "H".
If opening the
door soon after
the end of the
programme,or
during it, stand
away from the
Dishwasher, to

Useful tips
• Use the right
amount of
detergent: if
you use too
much, you will
not get cleaner
dishes, but just
more
environmental
pollution.
• Keep your
dishwasher
detergent
and
rinse aid in a
cool, dry place
and away from
children.
Warning
Three-in-one dishwasher tablets are now available on the market, and combine the detergent, salt and rinse aid
all in one. If the water in your area is hard or very hard, we still recommend you pour extra salt into the
relevant dispenser to prevent the formation of white streaks on your dishes or on the appliance interior.
Add rinse aid to the corresponding container only if you are dissatisfied with the results on your dishes.
In any case, please read the manufacturer's instructions provided on the packet.
The rinse aid.
This product makes dishes sparkle
more as it improves their drying.
The rinse aid container is situated
on the inside of the appliance door;
you should refill it when you see
the container is empty by means
of indicator “D”.
(If your dishwasher is fitted with a
“low rinse aid” indicator light, fill
the container up when the indicator
light flashes or lights up).
Loading the rinse aid.
To open the dispenser, turn cap C
anticlockwise. Take care when you
pour in the rinse aid to avoid it
overflowing. You can adapt the
amount of rinse aid used by the
dishwasher: regulate the adjuster
F which you will find under lid C.
D
F
C
Proper dosage of
the rinse aid
improves drying.
If drops of water
remain on the
dishes or spotting
occurs, turn the
dosage adjuster to
a higher setting.
If, on the other
hand, the dishes
have white
streaks, then turn
the dosage
adjuster down to
a lower setting.
You can choose from six different
positions. It is normally set to 4.

Never without salt
Water in your home
Water hardness varies according to where you live. If the water in your home is
hard, without water softening, incrustations would form on your dishes. Your
dishwasher is fitted with a water softener which uses special salt to get rid of
limescale in the water.
Loading the salt.
Always use salt which is intended
for dishwasher use.
The salt container is situated
underneath the lower rack, fill it
up as follows:
1.Pull out the lower rack
completely, unscrew and
remove the container cap
2. Is it the first time you load the
salt? First fill the container up
with water (you won't have to
do this again next time)
3. Put the dishwasher funnel on the
hole and pour in approximately
two kilos of salt. It is normal
that some water comes out of
the container.
4. Screw the cap back in place
carefully.
When should I load the salt?
The salt container must be filled
when the "low salt" indicator light
"E" comes on.
Once you have loaded the salt for
the first time, it is normal that the
low salt indicator light stays on or
flashes for 5consecutive cycles.
Intelligent salt.
Your dishwasher can adjust its salt
consumption according to the
hardness of the water in your
home. This way, you can optimise
and customise your dishwasher's
salt consumption (not too much,
nor too little).
To adjust salt consumption, do as
follows:
1. Unscrew the salt container cap
2. There is an arrow on the neck of
the container (see figure): if
necessary, turn the arrow anticlockwise from the "-" setting
to the "+" setting.
Select the arrow position
depending on the water hardness,
Suggestions and advice for you.
How to look after and protect
the dishes you hold dear
■ Almost all silverware can be
cleaned in a dishwasher.
There are two exceptions: old
silverware and silverware
decorated with an oxidising
agent. Hot water can loosen
the handles on old silverware
ad wear off the decorations on
the other.
Never let silverware come into
contact with other metals: you
will thus avoid stains and
blackening
Apart from
making you save
time and energy,
your dishwasher
disinfects your
dishes, washing
them at a high
temperature.
To prevent rust
from forming, load
the salt just before
beginning a wash
cycle.

You don't know
how hard the
water in your
home is? Ask the
company that
supplies water in
your area.
Savings are easy
Using your electric household appliances
wisely helps you make savings and is
good for the environment.
Maximum load.
To optimise consumption levels, try to use the
dishwasher with a full load only. If it takes
quite some time to fill up your dishwasher,
use the soak cycle to avoid the formation of
bad odours and caked-on food.
■ Silver plates and serving dishes
should be washed immediately
after use, especially if they have
contained salt, eggs, olives,
mustard, vinegar, fruit juices
and cooked vegetables.
■ For particularly delicate dishes,
we recommend you use the
specific wash cycle offered by
your dishwasher.
Half load.
Remember that, if need be, your dishwasher
also allows you to wash half a load (using the
upper rack only). Before setting any wash
cycle whatsoever (in this case, we recommend
you do not set the heavy duty wash cycle),
press button "H". Remember to use half the
amount of detergent.
The right wash cycle.
Select the most suitable wash cycle for the
type of load you have placed in the dishwasher.
The choice of wash cycle depends on the type
of dishes to wash and on how dirty they are.
To select the right wash cycle, please consult
the wash cycle table on page 6.

D ISHWASHER
Installation and moving
Your dishwasher has arrived
After having bought or moved your dishwasher to another home, a
correct installation ensures that your dishwasher will operate
smoothly and efficiently.
Choose where you want to install
your dishwasher, you can even
place it so that its sides or back
panel are side by side with furniture
or up against the wall. The
dishwasher is provided with water
supply and drain hoses, which can
be directed towards the left or right
to facilitate appropriate
installation.
Easy to build-in
This dishwasher model can be builtin under a single worktop easily.
The dishwasher comes with an
assembly kit complete with an
instructions sheet.
Levelling.
Once the appliance is positioned,
adjust the feet by screwing them in
or out depending on how high you
want it and to level it so that it is
horizontal. Make sure that it is not
inclined more than 2 degrees. If the
appliance is level, it will help ensure
its correct operation.
Cold water connection.
Connect the cold water supply
hose to a 3/4 gas threaded
connection, taking care to screw it
tightly onto the tap.
If the water hoses are new or have
been out of use for an extended
period of time, let the water run to
make sure it is clear and free of
impurities before making the
connection. If this precaution is not
taken, the water inlet could get
blocked, causing damage to your
dishwasher.
If the power
socket to which
the appliance is
connected is not
compatible with
the plug, replace
it with a suitable
plug rather than
using adapters or
multiple plugs as
these could cause
overheating or
burns.
Hot water connection.
Your dishwasher can be supplied
with hot water from the mains
supply (if you have a central heating
system with radiators) at a temperature of no more than 60°C.
In this case, the wash cycle time
will be about 15 minutes shorter
and the wash will be slightly less
effective.
The connection must be made to
hot water supply following the
same procedures as those indicated
for the cold water connection.
Anti-flooding protection
Your dishwasher is provided with a
special system which blocks the
water supply in the event of leaks
inside the appliance. It is further
equipped with a water inlet hose
comprising an outer clear hose and
an inner red hose, which can both
withstand extremely high pressures. Should the inner hose break,
the outer hose will consequently
turn red. Safety in the event of
flooding is ensured by the second
clear hose that contains the former.
It is vital that you check the outer
hose regularly: if you see it has
turned bright red, then you know
you have to replace it as soon as
possible. Call for an authorised
technical engineer to come and
replace it.
Drain hose connection.
Fit the drain hose into a drain pipe
with a minimum diameter of 4 cm
or place it over the sink. Avoid
restricting or bending it. Use the
special plastic elbow provided (see
figure) to position it in the best
possible way. The free end of the
hose should be between 40 and 100
cm above the ground and should
not be immersed in water.
Electrical connection.
First of all, check that the mains
voltage and frequency values
correspond to those stated on the
rating plate located on the stainless
steel inner door of the appliance
and that the electrical system to
which the dishwasher is connected
is sized for the maximum current
indicated on said rating plate.
Power supply wire.
Check the power supply wire on a
regular basis; if it is damaged, we
recommend you have it replaced
by an authorised technical
Assistance service centre.
Earth: indispensable
safety.
Only now can you plug the
appliance into a socket provided
with an efficient earth connection
(the system's earthing is a
guarantee of safety provided for by
law, make sure your system has
it).
A
8 ARISTON DISHWASHER - Instructions for installation and use
The special

should be
fastened firmly

Safety within your home
Your dishwasher was built in accordance with the strictest international safety regulations. They protect
you and your family. Read the instructions and information contained in this manual: they will provide
you with useful hints as to installation, use and maintenance safety. To avoid nasty surprises.
1. Dispose of the packaging
material carefully (follow the
instructions on how to divide
your rubbish up provided by
your local Council)
2. After removing the packaging,
check to make sure your
appliance is intact. If in doubt,
contact a qualified
professional.
3. Your dishwasher must only be
used by adults and for washing
householddishes,accordingto
the instructions included in
this manual. Do not touch the
appliance with wet hands or
feet or barefoot.
4. We discourage the use of
extension leads and multiple
plugs. If the electricity supply
wire is not long enough, then
have it replaced with one of
the correct length and
remember that it should be
free of bends or dangerous
kinks.
5. If the appliance is not operating
properly or if maintenance
operations are necessary,
disconnect the dishwasher
from the mains power supply
(unplug it!).
6. Keep children away from the
dishwasherwhenitisopenand
keep detergents out of their
reach.
7. Your dishwasher is not to be
installed outdoors, not even if
the area is covered by a roof:
it is extremely dangerous to
leave it exposed to rain and
thunderstorms.
8. Do not touch the heating
element during or straight after
a wash cycle.
9. Do not lean or sit on the door
when it is open, as this could
overturn the dishwasher.
10. If the appliance malfunctions,
turn off the water inlet tap and
disconnect the plug from the
wall socket. Then try

consulting the section entitled
"I you have a problem, read
this". If you cannot resolve the
problem, then call the service
centre.
11. Once taken out of use,
appliances must be made
inoperable: cut the power
supply wire and damage the
door lock.

Cleaning and special maintenance
The filter assembly
If you want consistent good results
from your dishwasher, you need to
clean the filter assembly.
The food particles are removed
from the wash water, allowing it to
be recirculated during the cycle,
filtered perfectly. For this reason,
it is a good idea to remove the larger
food particles trapped inside the
cup “C” and the semi-circular filter
A after each wash; pull the cup
handle upwards to remove them.
Just rinse them under running
water.
The entire filter assembly should
be cleaned thoroughly once a
month: cup C + semi-circular filter
A + cylindrical filter B. Rotate filter
“B” anticlockwise to remove it.
For cleaning, use a non metallic
brush.
Reassemble the filter parts (as
shown in the figure) and reinsert
the whole assembly into the
dishwasher. Position it into its
housing and press downwards.
The dishwasher is not to be used
without filters. Improper
replacement of the filters may reduce the efficiency of the wash and
even damage your dishwasher.

Keep your dishwasher in shape
Respecting these few rules ensures you will always
have a reliable work companion by your side.
After every wash.
When the wash cycle has ended,
always remember to turn off the
water supply tap and to leave the
appliance door ajar. This way,
moisture and bad odours will not
be trapped inside.
Unplug the appliance.
Before carrying out any cleaning
or maintenance on the dishwasher,
always remove the plug from the
electricity socket. Do not run risks.
No solvents! No abrasives!
To clean the exterior and rubber
parts of your appliance, do not use
solvents or abrasive cleaning
products. Use a cloth dampened
with lukewarm soapy water only.
If there are any stains on the
surface of the appliance interior,
use a cloth dampened with water
and a little white vinegar, or a
cleaning product specifically made
for dishwashers.
Going on holiday?
When you go away for an extended
period of time, we recommend you
do the following:
• run a cycle with the dishwasher
empty
• turn off the water inlet tap.
• leave the appliance door ajar
This will help the seals last longer
and prevent unpleasant odours
from forming inside the appliance.
Moving the appliance.
Should the appliance have to be
moved, try to keep it in a vertical
position. If absolutely necessary, it
can be positioned on its back.
The seals.
One of the factors that cause
unpleasant odours to form inside
the dishwasher is food that remains
trapped in the seals. Periodic
cleaning using a damp sponge will
prevent this from occurring.
Your dishwasher is not a waste
disintegrator!
Do not worry about removing every
single bit of food residue from your
dishes, but do get rid of bones, peel and
rind and any other left-overs before
placing them in the racks. Empty out
all glasses and cups.
