Positioning the appliance
Positioning the appliance in the desired location. The back should rest against the wall behind it, and the
sides, along the adjacent cabinets or wall. The dishwasher is equipped with water supply and drain
hoses that can be positioned to the right or the left to facilitate proper installation.
Levelling the appliance
Once the appliance is positioned, adjust the feet (screwing them
in or out) to adjust the dishwasher, making it level. In any case,
the appliance should not be inclined more than 2˚. If the appli-
ance is level, it will help ensure proper performance.
Cold water connection
Connect the water supply hose to a threaded 3/4 (gas) connector,
making sure that it is fastened tightly in place (see fig.A).
Some models are fitted with an "Aquastop" water supply hose
(see fig.B) in which the small filter is already housed in the
If the water pipes are new or have not been used for an ex-
tended 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 is to be connected to the water mains using new hose-
sets and that old hose-sets should not be reused.
Anti-Flooding protection (for some models)
The dishwasher is equipped with a system that stops the supply of water in the event of a problem with the water
supply hose, or leaks within the unit, in order to prevent damage to your home. If for any reason the box
containing the electrical components happens to get damaged, remove the plug for the appliance from the
socket immediately. In order to guarantee that the anti-flooding feature operates properly, the "A" box with water
supply hose must be attached to the water supply tap as shown in fig.B. No other type of connection is acceptable.
The water supply hose must not, under any circumstances, be cut, as it contains electrical parts which are live.
If the length of the hose is not adequate to make a proper connection, the hose must be replaced with one which
is long enough. This hose is available upon request from specialised retailers and service center.
