Positioning the machine

When considering the location for the dishwasher, ensure
that there is adequate space to enable loading and
unloading of the dishes
Do not put your machine in any location where the
ambient temperature can fall below 5°C
Before positioning, take the machine out of its
packaging by following the warnings located on
the package
Position the machine close to a water tap and drain
You need to position your machine, taking into
consideration that its connections will not be altered
once they are made
Do not grip the machine by its door or panel in order
to move it
Take care to leave a certain clearance from all sides
of the machine so that you can comfortably move it
back and forth during cleaning
Make sure that the water inlet and outlet hoses do not
get squeezed while positioning the machine Also,
make sure that the machine does not stand on the
electrical cable Adjust the machine's feet so that it is
level and stable Proper positioning of the machine
ensures problem-free opening and closing of its door
If the door of your machine does not close properly,
check if the machine is stable on the floor; if not,
adjust the feet and ensure it is level and stable
Water connection
Ensure that the indoor plumbing is suitable for installing a
dishwasher Also, we recommend that you fit a filter at the
entrance of your place or apartment so as to avoid any
damage to your machine because of any contamination
(sand, clay, rust etc) that might be occasionally carried in
through the main's water supply or the indoor plumbing,
and to avoid problems as staining and formation of
deposits after washing

Water inlet hose

Do not use the water inlet hose of your old machine, you
must use the new water inlet hose supplied with your
machine Before connecting the
water inlet hose to the water tap,
ensure clean water is flowing from the
tap before making the connection
Connect the water inlet hose directly
to the water inlet tap The pressure
supplied by the tap should be at
a minimum of 0 03 MPa and at a
maximum of 1 MPa If the water
pressure is above 1 MPa, a pressure-
relief valve should be installed
NOTE: Only turn the locking nut to secure the hose -
Do not turn hose
After the connections are made, the tap should be turned
on fully and checked for water tightness For the safety of
your machine, make sure to always turn off the water inlet
tap after each wash program is finished
NOTE: Aquastop inlet hose has
components using 240V. Do not cut
Aquastop inlet hose. Do not let it get
folded, twisted, kinked or crushed.
A water tempering valve is required if the
water temperature is over 60°C.
Water drain hose
If you connect the water drain hose to a trap spigot under
the sink, remove the plastic membrane If you do not
remove the entire membrane, remaining food can cause
blockage in the drain hose spigot Ensure a hose clamp is
used to secure the hose to the spigot
The water drain hose can
be connected either directly
to the water drain hole or to
the sink outlet spigot Using a
hose hook (if available), the
water can be drained directly
into the sink by positioning
the hose hook over the edge
of the sink
This connection should be
at a minimum of 50 cm
and at a maximum of
110 cm above the base
of the dishwasher
WARNING: Maximum drain
hose length is 4m. Longer
hose length will prevent
correct draining and result in
poor wash performance.
