The following step-by-step instructions will help you to achieve the best possible results. FILL THE BASKETS PROPERLY Your dishwasher features the ASKO Super Cle- aning System™. After the pre-wash, the main wash is started with clean water and a clean machine and therefore it is not necessary to rinse dishware before washing up.
Place larger plates, dishes, pots, saucepans and cutlery (in the cutlery basket) in the lower basket. The detachable plate rack that is supp- lied with some models can easily be lifted out to provide space for big plates, saucepans and pots, or be fitted in one of the three different posi- tions.
Intensive wash Use the Intensive wash programme for heavily soiled ware, such as pots and pans, and gratin forms. The dishwasher can suitably be loaded with other items if not completely filled. Normal wash Use this programm for normal washing. It is devised for normally soiled glasses, cups and saucers, plates, dishes, etc.

OPTIONS ECO/BIO FUNCTION The Eco/Bio function reduces temperature of the main wash to 50°C and extends duration of the washing phase by 15 minutes. This saves energy. Use the Eco/Bio function to give the right temperature when using detergents con- taining enzymes.
ECO WASH CHOOSE ECONOMY WASH Press the E-button to reduce temperature of the main wash to 50°C. Duration of the main wash- ing phase will be extended by 15 minutes to compensate the lower temperature. Detergents that contain enzymes are more efficient at lo- wer temperature and in longer washing pro- grammes.
DELICATE AND SENSITIVE DISHWARE For a variety of reasons, some articles are unsu- itable for machine washing. Some materials can- not withstand high temperature, others can be damaged by dishwasher detergents. SENSITIVE DECORATION China that has “on-glaze“ decoration (feels a litt- le rough) should not be machine washed.
CLEANING Tubular strainer Fine filter CLEANING The inside of the machine is made of stainless steel, which is kept clean by normal use. Howe- ver, deposits of lime can be formed inside the machine if the water is hard. If this happens, Coarse run a Normal wash programme with two table- filter...
Spray arms Spray-arm jets and bearings may sometimes be- come clogged. Screw off the nut and take off the washer on top of the spray arm and lift off the arm. Poke out any obstructions with a ske- wer or other suitable pointed tool. The spray- arm jets face downwards.

SETTINGS REPROGRAMMING Some of the machine functions can be reprogrammed. Access to reprogramming of the machine is gained via the ordinary control buttons as explained below. Any alteration made will remain intact until the next time you alter the functions. Even if the machine is turned off using the main power switch, or if power is cut off in any other way, the selections made prior to loss of power will remain intact.

PRESS THE ECO/BIO FUNCTION ONCE TO OBTAIN AN EXTRA RINSE OR RESET: 2. PRESS RINSE ONCE AND YOU WILL GET NORMAL FUNCTION * The latest selected setting will be shown.
SETTING THE PUMPING-OUT TIME The pumping-out time can suitably be extended if you are using a long drain hose, max. 3 metres, or if the machine for any other reason has difficulty in pumping out the waste water in time. Proceed as follows: 1.PRESS QUICK WASH FIVE TIMES* (WITHIN 15 SECONDS) 2.
FAULT INDICATIONS INDICATOR LAMPS INDICATION TYPE OF FAULT DOOR IS OPEN PREVENTING START OF THE SELECTED PROGRAMME(NORMAL FOR THIS TYPE OF MACHINE) ELEMENT MALFUNCTION TOO MUCH WATER IN THE MACHINE A SENSOR ERROR HAS OCCURRED TROUBLE-SHOOTING PROGRAMME It will be possible for you to locate the fault if the machine is not working properly. This facilitates the work of the repair man and reduces repair time.
TROUBLE SHOOTING - DISHWASHING RESULTS FAULT - POOR WASHING PERFORMANCE Possible causes 1. Rotation of spray arms prevented by protruding object. Check also that jets in the spray arms are not clogged. 2. Spray arms slowed down by impurities in the bearings. Spin the arms by hand and if they do not spin freely lift them off and wipe the fittings clean.
• Very hard water. Compensate with acidic rinse aid. Still not clean after testing with citric acid? • The cause is probably temperature that is too high and/or too much detergent. This type of film, or etching, cannot be remedied, only prevented. Wash glasses at low temperature and dispense the amount detergent with care, and avoid heated drying.
TROUBLE SHOOTING - DISHWASHER If the machine does not work, check first to find out if the reason is a simple fault that you can remedy yourself. Try to locate the fault with the aid of the following description. Try the trouble- shooting programme also, see Fault indications.
