Loading the Dishwasher
Before placing the dishes in the dishwasher, remove larger food
particles to prevent the filter from becoming clogged, which re-
sults in reduced performance.
If the pots and pans have baked-on food that is extremely hard
to remove, we recommend that they are soaked before washed.
This will eliminate the need for extra wash cycles.
Pull out the rack to load the dishwasher.
How to use the lower rack
We recommend that you place the most difficult to clean items
on the bottom rack: pots, pans, lids, serving dishes and bowls,
as shown in the figure to the right.
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
- Pots, serving bowls, etc. must always be placed face down.
- Deep pots should be slanted to allow the water to flow out.
- The lower rack features fold down tine rows (see fig.A) so that
larger or more pots and pans can be loaded.
- Silverware should be placed in the silverware basket with the
handles at the bottom; if the rack has side baskets, the spoons
should be located individually into the appropriate slots. Espe-
cially long utensils should be placed in the horizontal position at
the front of the upper rack.
How to use the upper rack
The upper rack is designed to hold more delicate and lighter
dishware, such as glasses, cups and saucers, plates, small bowls
and shallow pans (as long as they are not too dirty).
- Position the dishes and cookware so that they do not get
moved by the spray of water.
The upper rack can be adjusted for height by using the knobs
located on the sides of the rack itself (see fig.C).
Lean tall glasses and those with long stems against the shelf-not
against other items to be washed.
Place glasses, cups and small bowls on the additional cup rack.
The additional cup rack can be swivelled in or out as required
The knife rest is designed to hold long knife and fork.
- Place the knife rest on the correct position of upper rack, and
put the long knife and fork to be washed on it.

Starting the Appliance
Starting a wash cycle
After having completed all of the installation steps in the preced-
ing paragraphs, turn on the water to the unit, partially open the
door of the dishwasher, and press the ON-OFF button "C" lo-
cated on the control panel. The "D" indicator light will come on.
At this point, the appliance is on and ready to be programmed.
Setting and Starting a wash Cycle
Choose the desired cycle by pressing the cycle selection button
"E". Each time it is pressed, one of the cycle indicator lights "A"
will come on in succession.
Choose the wash cycle you feel is most appropriate for the type
of dishes that need washing (consult the wash cycle table con-
tained in this manual, especially when first using the appliance).
Close the door and press the "E" programming button, a short
acoustic signal will sound indicating that the wash cycle has be-
gun and cannot be modified. If necessary, read the paragraph
entitled, "Cancelling or modifying a cycle while underway". The
end of the cycle will be signalled by a double acoustic sound, and
the indicator light "A" will begin to blink.
Cancelling or modifying a cycle while underway...
Premise: A cycle that is underway can only be modified if it has
only been running for a short time.
Otherwise, the detergent may have already 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").
To change the cycle currently underway, open the door, press
the "ON-OFF" button and then press the "E" programming button.
Once the cycle has been cancelled, the dishwasher will emit a
short acoustic sound and the relative indicator light will turn off.
To set a new wash cycle, follow the instructions contained in the
paragraph entitled, "Setting and Starting a Wash Cycle".
If you forget to load some of the dishes...
The wash cycle can be interrupted by opening the door carefully
(in order to avoid being sprayed by hot water). When the door is
closed again, the cycle will automatically restart at the point where
it left off.
At the end of the wash cycle...
The end of the cycle will be indicated by a double acoustical
signal and the blinking of the "A" indicator light. Open the door,
turn off the appliance using the ON/OFF switch and turn off the
water supply to the unit. Wait a few minutes before removing the
dishes so as to avoid handling them while still hot (when they
are more susceptible to breakage) and to get better drying results.
Setting The Start Delay Time
Open the door of the dishwasher partially. If the "I" button is
pressed (see, Close-up View" Control Panel"). The start time for
the wash cycle can be delayed for 2,4 or 6 hours.
Each time the button is pressed, the "H" light will come on indi-
cating the length of the delay.
After selecting the delay time, the wash cycle can be set, as
explained in "Starting a wash cycle..." There will be a short acous-
tic signal, and at this point the delay period will begin to count
down. During this period the delay indicator light
the end of the delay time, the indicator will stop blinking and the
cycle will start.
a) During the delay period, none of the settings can be modified.
If necessary, they can be cancelled by pressing the "ON-OFF"
b) If the power to the appliance goes off or the door is opened
during the delay period, the clock will stop the countdown. It will
start again when the power has come back on, or when the door
has been closed.
