Cleaning and Special Maintenance

Filter Assembly
For best performance and results, the filter assembly must be
The filter efficiently removes food particles from the wash water,
allowing it to be recirculated 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 "A" semi-circular filter
and cup under running water. To remove the filter assembly, pull
on the cup handle in an upward direction. The entire filter assem-
bly (made up of the "A" semicircular filter and the "B" fine filter)
should be cleaned at least once a month. To clean the filter and
the fine filter, use a cleaning brush. Then, reassemble the filter
parts as shown in the figures below and inset the entire assem-
bly in the dishwasher, positioning in its seat and pressing
The dishwasher must never be used without the filters. Improper
replacement of the filters may reduce performance of the appli-
ance and damage dishes and utensils.


It may occur that the dishwasher does not function properly or at
all. Before calling for assistance, Iet us see what can be done
first: Have you forgotten to press one of the buttons or to per-
form an essential operation?
The Dishwasher Does Not Start
Have you checked whether:
- the plug is pushed into the socket correctly;
- the power is on in the house;
- the door is closed properly;
- the ON-OFF switch is on "ON";
- the water supply is turned on.
The Dishwasher Does Not Load Water
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
Have you checked whether:
- the water is turned on and the hose is connected properly;
- the water supply to the house is on and has sufficient pressure;
- the water supply hose is crimped or bent;
- the filter for the water supply hose is clogged.
Cleaning the Spray Arms
It may happen that food particles become encrusted on the
sprayer arms and block the hole (see "Close up view [interior]" ,
letters C-E ). Check the sprayer arms periodically and clean them
when needed.
Cleaning the Water Inlet Filter
Periodically clean the water inlet filter located on the outlet of the
water supply tap.
After turning off the water tap, unscrew the end of the water sup-
ply hose, remove the filter and clean it carefully under running
water. Then, return the filter to its place and tighten the water
supply hose back into position.
The Dishwasher Does Not Drain
Have you checked whether:
- the drain hose is crimped or bent.
Lime Deposits or a White Film Form on the Dishes
Have you checked whether:
- the lid to the salt container is closed properly;
- the rinse aid dosage is correct.
If, despite all these checks, the dishwasher still does not function
and/or the problem persists, contact the nearest authorised ser-
vice agent and provide them with the following information:
- the nature of the problem;
- the model type number (Mod...) and the serial number (S/N...),
which are indicated on the plate located on the side of the inner
part of the door.
Never call on unauthorised technicians and refuse to allow
parts to be installed that are not original spare parts.


Positioning the Appliance
Position 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
ensure correct installation.
Levelling the Appliance
Once the appliance is positioned, adjust the feet (screwing them
in or out) to adjust the dishwasher, making it level. The appliance
should not be inclined more than 2 . If the appliance is level, it
will help ensure proper performance.
Cold Water Connection
Connect the cold water supply hose to a threaded 3/4 (gas) con-
nector and make sure that it is fastened tightly in place (see fig.
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
Hot Water Connection
The water supply to the appliance can also be connected to the
house's hot water line (centralised system, heating system), as
long as it does not exceed a temperature of 60 .
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
Drain Hose Connection
Insert the drain hose into a drain pipe with a minimum diameter
of 4cm, or let it run into the sink, making sure to avoid bending
or crimping it. Use the special plastic support that comes with
the appliance (see fig.2). The free end of the hose must be at a
height between 40 and 100 cm and must not be immersed in
The special plastic hose support must be solidly fastened to the
wall to prevent the drain hose from moving and allowing water to
spill outside the drain.
Electrical Connection
After making sure that the voltage and frequency values for the
current in the home correspond to those on the rating plate
(located on the stainless steel inner door of the appliance) and
that the electrical system is sized for the maximum voltage on
the rating plate, insert the plug into an electrical socket which is
earthed properly (the earthing of the appliance is a safety re-
quirement mandated by law).
If the electrical socket to which the appliance must be connected
is not appropriate for the plug, replace the plug, rather than using
adaptors or the like as they could cause overheating and burns.
