wash cycle following the instructions provided in the "Wash Cycle
Table." The detergent dispenser is located on the inside panel
Loading the detergent
To open the "A" cover on the dispenser, press the "B" button.
The detergent for the wash cycle should be poured into the "C"
After the detergent has been placed in the dispenser, close the

This product makes dishes sparkle and helps them to dry with-
out spotting. The dispenser is located on the inside panel of the
door and should be filled after every 80 wash cycle (or when the
rinse aid indicator light comes on for models with this feature).
Loading the Rinse Aid
To open the dispenser, turn the "C" cap in an anti-clockwise
direction and then pour in the rinse aid, making sure not to overfill.
The amount of rinse aid used for each cycle, turn the dosage
adjuster "F", beneath the cap, with a screwdriver. There are 6
different settings; the normal dosage setting is 3.
Proper dosage of the rinse aid improves drying.
If drops of water remain on the dishes or spotting occurs, the
dosage adjuster should be turned to a higher setting.
If the dishes have white streaks, turn the dosage adjuster to a
Loading the Dishwasher
Load for 12 Standard Settings
Before placing the dishes in the dishwasher, remove the larger
food particles to prevent the filter from becoming clogged.
If the pots and pans have baked-on food that is extremely hard to
remove, we recommend they are soaked before washing. This will
eliminate the need for extra wash cycles.
Pull out the rack to load the dishwasher.
The lower rack
Place the most difficult to clean items on the bottom rack: pots,
pans, lids, serving dishes and bowls.
It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the sides of the
racks in order to avoid blocking the rotation of the top spray arm.
- Pots, serving bowls, etc. must always be placed face down.
- Deep pots should be tilted to allow the water to flow out.
The upper rack
The upper rack is designed to hold more delicate and lighter dishes,
such as glasses, cups and saucers, plates and small bowls.
- Position the dishes so that they do not get moved by the spray of
To adjust the height of the upper rack, rotate the caps located on
the end of the rack guide rails to the side, remove the rack com-
pletely and refit using the alternate set of whells (see fig.B).
Adjust the upper basket to the higher level to allow more height in
the bottom basket for large items.
Turning on the Appliance
Starting a wash cycle
- Make sure that the appliance is plugged in and switched on.
- Make sure that the water supply is turned on.
- Load the detergent (see the section entitled, "Detergent and
Rinse Aid" on page 3).
- Turn the timer dial located on the right of the control panel in
a clockwise direction until it points to the number or symbol
of the cycle required (see the section entitled, "Wash Cycle
chart" on page 7).
- Press the Power button, the Power light will turn on and
the wash cycle will begin.
Cancelling or changing a wash cycle setting
A cycle that is underway can only be changed if it has been
running for a short time. Otherwise, the detergent may have al-
ready been used, and the appliance may have already drained
the wash water. If this is the case, the detergent dispenser must
be refilled (see the paragraph entitled, "Loading the Detergent"
on page 3).
Press the Power button, and the on light will turn off. Rotate the
dial in a clockwise direction to the desired cycle setting (see the
section entitled: Starting a wash cycle
. Then, turn the dish-
washer back on using the Power button.
If you forget to load some of the dishes
The wash cycle can be paused by pressing the Power button.
You can then load additional dishes and turn the appliance back
on. The cycle willcontinue from where it left off.
Wait a few minutes before unloading the dishwasher to avoid
handling the dishes and utensils while they are still hot and more
susceptible to breakage. They will also dry better.
At the end of the wash cycle
When the dial stops turning and is pointing to a STOP mark (see
fig), the cycle has finished. Turn the appliance off using the Power
button, turn off the water supply and open the door of the
It is important to try and run the dishwasher when it is fully
loaded to save on energy.
Rather than run a full cycle for a half load, you can run the
Pre-rinse cycle which will prevent odours from forming and
food from caking onto the dishes.
- Choose the right wash cycle: the choice of cycle depends on
the type of dishware, cookware and utensils being washed
and how dirty they are.
Energy Saving Tips
- Use the right amount of detergent: if you use too much detergent,
the result will not be cleaner dishes, but, rather, a greater nega-
tive impact on the environment.
How to Keep Your Dishwasher in Shape
After Every Wash
After every wash, turn off the water supply to the appliance and
leave the door slightly ajar so that moisture and odors are not
Remove the Plug
Before cleaning or performing maintenance, always remove the
plug from the socket.
Solvents or Abrasive Cleaning Products
Do not use solvents or abrasive cleaning products to clean the
exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher, 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 clean-
ing product made specifically for dishwashers.
When You Go on Holiday
When you go on holiday, it is recommended 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 odours from forming.
Moving the Appliance
If the appliance must be moved, try to keep it in the vertical
position. If absolutely necessary, it can be laid on its back.
One of the reasons that odours form in the dishwasher is that
food get trapped in the seals. Periodic cleaning with a sponge
will prevent this.

Cleaning and Special Maintenance
For the best performance and results, the filter assembly must
be keep clean.
The filter removes food particles from the wash water, allowing
the water to be recirculated during the cycle. For this reason, it is
a good idea to remove any food particles trapped in the filter
after each wash cycle by rinsing the semi-circular filter and cup
("A") under running water. To remove the filter assembly, pull
the handle in an upward direction. The entire filter assembly (made
up of the semicircular filter "A" and the fine filter "B") should be
cleaned at least once a month use a soft brush. To reassemble,
inset the entire assembly into the dishwasher, locate it correctly
in its seat and pressing downward.
The dishwasher must not be used without the filters. Improper
replacement of the filters may reduce the performance of the
Cleaning the Spray Arms
Food particles may become encrusted on the spray arms and block
the hole (see "Close up view [interior]" on page 3, letters C-E ).
Check the spray arms periodically and clean them when needed.
If the dishwasher does not function or does not function correctly,
check the following before calling for assistance.
The Dishwasher Does Not Start
- Is the plug pushed into the socket correctly?
- Is the power on in the house?
- Is the door closed properly?
- Is the Power switch "ON"?
- Is the water supply turned on?

Have you checked whether:
- the water is turned on and the hose is connected properly;
- the water supply to the houses on and has sufficient pressure;
- the water supply hose is crimped or bent;
- the filter for the water supply hose is clogged.
The Dishes Are Not Clean
- Is the drain hose kinked or bent?
- Has the detergent been dispensed?
- Are the spray arm holes blocked?
- Are the spray arms rotating?
The Dishwasher Does Not Drain
- Is the drain hose kinked or bent?
Lime Deposits or a White Film Form on the Dishes
- Is the rinse aid dosage is correct?
If, despite all these checks, the dishwasher still does not function
and/or the problem persists, contact your nearest authorised ser-
vice centre and provide them with the following information:
- The nature of the problem;
- The model number (Mod...) and the serial number (S/N...),
which are located on the side of the inner part of the door.

Cleaning the Water Inlet Filter
Periodically clean the water inlet filter located in the inlet hose where
it screws onto the tap.
- Turn off the water tap, unscrew the hose, remove the filter and
clean it carefully under running water. Then refit the filter and tighten
the hose back into position on the tap.
Positioning the Appliance
Position the appliance in the desired location. The back should
rest against the wall, and the sides along the adjacent cabinets
or walls. The dishwasher is equipped with water supply and drain
hoses that can be positioned to the right or left to allow correct
Levelling the Appliance
Once the appliance is positioned, adjust the feet (screwing them
in or out) of level the dishwasher. The appliance should not be
inclined more than 2 degrees to ensure proper performance.
Cold Water Connection (only)
Connect the cold water supply hose to a threaded 3/4 bsp connector
and make sure that it is fastened tightly (see fig.1).
If the water pipes are new or have not been used for an extended
period of time, let the water run first, till it is clear and free of
impurities. Otherwise the water inlet filter may get blocked.
650KPa Pressure limiting Valve is required.
The plastic hose support must be fastened to the wall to pre-
vent the drain hose from moving.
After making sure that the voltage and frequency in the home cor-
respond to those on the rating plate of the appliance (located on
the side of the stainless steel inner door) and that the electrical
system can cope with the maximum voltage on the rating plate,
insert thr plug into an earthed electrical socket.
Drain Hose Connection
Insert the drain hose into a drain pipe with a minimum diameter of
40mm, or let it run into the sink. Use the plastic support that comes
with the appliance (see fig .2) and ensure there are no tight bends
or kinks. The free end of the hose must be at a height between 40
and 100 cm and must not be immersed in water.
