Before usi ng your dishwasher for the first time:
A. Set the water softener
B. Pour 1/2 litre of water inside the salt container and then fill with dishwasher salt
C. Fill the rinse aid dispenser
D. Function of detergent
The water softener must be set manually, using the water hardness dial .
The water softener is designed to remove minerals and salts from the water, which would have
a detrimental or adverse effect on the operation of the appliance. The hi gher the
content of these minerals and salts, the harder your water is. The softener should be
adjusted according to the hardness of the water in your area. Your local Water Authority
can advise you on the hardness of the water in your area.
Adjusting Salt Consumption
The dishwasher is designed to allow for adjusting the amount of salt consumed based on
the hardness of the water used. This is intended to optimize and customize the level of
salt consumpti on so that the salt consumption could be set proceed as follows:
1. Unscrew the cap from the salt container
2. There is aring on the container w ith anarrow on it (see
figure to the side), if necessary, rotate the ring in the
anticlockwise direction from the “-”Setting toward the
“ ”sign, based on the hardness of the water being used.
It i s recommended that adjustments should be made in
accordance with the following schema:

Salt consumption
Auto nomy
Note:1 ° dH=1.25 ° Cl ark=1.78
° fH=0.178mmol/l
° dH : German degree
° fH : French degree
° Clark: British degree
Contact your local water board for information on the hardness of your water supply.
Always use salt intended for use with dishwasher.
The sal t container is locat ed beneath the lower rack and should be filled as foll ows:
Atte ntion!
Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwa shers! All other t ypes of
salt not spe ci fically designed for use in a dishwasher, e specially table salt, will
damage the water softener. In case of dam ages caused by the use of unsui table
salt the m anuf acturer does not give any warranty nor is liable for a ny cause d
Only fill with salt just before starting one of the complet e washi ng programmes.
This wi ll prevent a ny grains of salt or salty wa ter, which may have been spli t,
rem ai ni ng of the bottom of the machi ne for a ny period of tim e, which ma y ca use
Afte r the first wash cycle the control panel light expires.
A Remove the lower basket and then unscrew and remove the cap from the salt container.
B If you are filling the container for the first time, fill 2/3 of its volume with water (around 500ml).
C Place the end of the funnel (supplied) into the hole and introduce about 1,2kg of salt. It is
Normal for a small amount of water to come out of the salt container.
D Carefully screw the cap back on.
E Usually, the salt warning light will be off in 2-6 days after the salt container be filled with salt.
1. The salt container must be refilled when the salt warning light in the control panel comes on.
Though the salt container is filled enough, the indicator light may not black out
before the salt fully dissolve.
If there is no salt warning light in the control panel (for some models) , you can judge when to load
the salt into the softener by the cycles that the dishwasher had run .
2. If there are spills of the salt, a soak program could be run to wipe them out.
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring thorough rinsing, and spot
and streak free drying.
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.
You can judge the amount of rinse-aid by the color 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.
D (Rinse-Aid indicator)
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
To open the dispenser, turn the cap to the "open" (left) arrow and lift it out.
Pour the rinse aid into the dispenser, being careful not to overfill.
Replace the cap by inserting it aligned with "open" arrow and turning it to the closed (right) arrow.
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.
Clean up any rinse aid split during filling with an absorbent cloth to avoid excess foaming
during the next wash.
Adjust lever
The rinse aid dispenser has 6 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 dispenser lid 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 “2”(Factory value is “2”)
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 blades.
Detergents with its chemical ingredients are necessary to remove dirt, dissolved dirt and
transport it out of the dishwasher. Most of commercial quality detergents are suitable
for this purpose.
Concentrated Detergent
Based on their chemical composition, dishwasher detergent can be:
conventional, alkaline detergents wi th caustic components
low alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes
The use of “normal” washing programmes in conjunction with concentrated detergents
reduces pollution and is good for your dishes; these wash programmes are specially matched
to the dirt-dissolving properties of the enzymes of the concentrated detergent. For this reason
“normal”wash programmes in which concentrated detergents are used can ac hieve the
same results that can otherwise only be achieved using “intensive” programmes.
Detergent Tablets
Detergent tablets of different brands dissolve at different speeds. For this reason some
detergent tablets cannot dissolve and develop their full cleaning power during short
programmes. Therefore please use long programmes when using detergent tablets, to
unsure the complete removal of detergent residuals.
Detergent Dispenser
The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each wash cycle following the instructions
provided in the Wash Cycle Table. 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 di ssolve
Amount of Detergent to Use
Please refer to the 'WASH CYCLE TABLE' on page 15 for the correct amount of detergent to use for each cycle
If the lid is closed: press release button. The lid springs open.
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.
Proper Use of Detergent
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.
Filling the detergent container
Fill the detergent dispenser with detergent.
The marki ng indicates the dosing levels , as
illustrated on right:
1 Place the detergent for the main wash cycle here.
Place the detergent for the pre-wash cycle here.
Please observe the manufacturers 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.
You find information about the amount of detergent for the single programm es on the
last page. Please 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.
Turbo drying is a very effective drying system.
The moist, warm air is expelled quickly by a fan
to provide optimum drying results.
For best performance of the dishwasher, follow these loading guidelines. Features and
appearance of racks and silverware baskets may vary from your model.
Attention before or after Loading the Dishwasher Racks
Scrape off any large amounts of leftover food. It is not necessary to rinse the dishes under
running water. Place objects in the dishwasher in following way:
1.Items such as cups, glasses, pots/pans, etc. are stood upside down.
2.Items with recesses or curves should be placed at a slant to allow the wate r to run off where possible, to avoid water pooling on the dish.
3.They are stacked securely and can not tip over.
4.They do not prevent the spray arms from rotating while washing takes place.
Very small items should not be washed in the dishwasher as they could easily fall out of the racks.
Removing the Dishes
To prevent water dripping from the upper back into the lower back, we recommend that you
empty the lower basket first and then the upper back.
Loading the Upper Rack
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.
Dessert dishes
The upper rack is for more delicate and lighter dishware
such as glasses, coffee & tea cups, saucers, plates, bowls,
and shallow pans (provided these are not too dirty).
Position the dishes and cookware so that they do not get
moved by the spray of water. Always place glasses, cups &
bowls upside down.
Your dishwasher comes with an adjustable top rack (basket)
pictured at right. Its height can be adjusted by lifting the
handle in a downward or upward direction. (Pls see the
figures on the right: position 1 & positon 2.)
Ensure the metal rod is located in its correct position.
*** NOTE ***: The upper rack has side flaps (pictured at left
above basket). There are 4 (2 on each side). These can be
adjusted into 2 positions = position 1 (high) and position 2 (low).
To move the flaps between these positions, locate the large hinges
clip each flap to the upper rack. There are two of these at
either end of each flap. Gently pull both clips off the wire rack
and move the flap to the desired position. be careful if you have
long fingernails!
The upper position will accommodate items such as glass tumblers (placed beneath flap) and wine
glasses. Wine glasses can be placed upside down so that the neck rests in the grooves at side of flap
with the base of the glass facing upward.
When the flaps are moved to the lower position, they can be used to hold additional tumblers, cups
and mugs. Always check that you are only placing items on the flaps that will clear the ceiling height
of your dishwasher when you push the rack back in. Be careful with long-stemmed glassware such as
champagne glasses and ensure that these are clear of the top of the dishwasher.
We recommend that you place large items which are most difficult to clean into the low er rack:
pots, pans, lids, serving dishes and bowls, as shown in the figure blow.
It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the side of the racks in order to avoi d blocking
the rotation of the top spray arm.
Pots, serving bowls, etc. must always be placed top down.
Deep pots should be slanted to allow w ater to flow out.
The bottom rack feature fold down tine row s 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.This can be done by initially lifting up the wire rack then folding
down. This should be done when the dishwasher is empty
Silverware Basket
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 th e front of the
upper rack.

NOTE: A click could be heard when the door is closed perfectly. .
Premise: A cycle that is underway can only be modified if it
has only been running for a short time. Otherwise, the detergent
may have already been released, and the appliance may have
already drained the wash water. If this is the case, the detergent
dispenser must be refilled (see the section entitled " Loading the
Detergent " ).

Filtering System
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 filter are pulverized by a special jet on the lower spray
arm and washed down the drain.
Coarse filter
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.
Cleaning the Filters
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 reci rculated 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 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 filters. Improper replacement of the filter may
reduce the performance level of the appliance and damage dishes and utensils.
Never run the dishwasher without the filters in place. When cleaning the filters do not 'knock' or
use excessive force to clean the filters as if the filters are bent in anyway the performance of the
dishwasher may be effected
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 them 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, you should:
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 w ater inlet pipe to the water valve.
5.Remove the filter in the tub the bottom and use a sponge to use up w ater in sump.
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 fini sh. 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 lock and electrical components.
After every wash, 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.
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.
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 w ith a damp sponge will prevent this
from occurring.
The installation of the pipes
and electrical equipments
should be done by professionals.
Installation preparation
The installation position of dishwasher should be near the existing inlet and drain hoses and
power cord.
One side of the cabinet sink should be chosen to facilitate the connection of drain hoses of

Please see the rating label to know the rating voltage and connect the dishwasher to the appropriate power supply, a 10 amp fused
circuit is required with copper wire only. A sperate circuit with a circuit breaker serving only this appliance is recommended.
The power outlet should be placed in an 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 tor 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 tor the plug, replace the socket, rather than using a adaptors or the
like as they could cause overheating and burns.
Insure proper ground exists before use
„ This appliance must be grounded. In the event
of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding will
reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a
path of least resistance of electric current. This
appliance is equipped with a cord having an
equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate
outlet that is installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
„ Improper connection of the equipment-
grounding conductor can result in a risk
of electric shock. Check with a qualified
electrician or service representative if you
are in doubt whether the appliance is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided with the appliance; If it is not fit
for the outlet. Have a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician.
The appliance must be connected to the water mains using new hose-sets.
The old hose-sets should not be reused.

The Aquasafe is a safety valve system, protecting you from water leaks. If the water inlet hose starts to leak during a wash cycle,
the safety valve cuts off the running water. Do not immerse the water inlet hose or the safety valve in water, because the electrical
cable for the safety valve is in the double-walled water inlet hose.
If the water inlet hose or the safety valve is damaged, remove the main plug immediately.
Do not enlarge or shorten the inlet hose because it contains electrical parts
A hose that attaches to a sink spray can burst if it is installed on the same water line as the dishwasher. If your sink has one, it is
recommended thet the hose be disconnected and the hole plugged.

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.
