Energy Saving Tips

-It is important to try and run the dishwasher when it is fully
loaded in order to save on energy. In order to prevent odors
from forming and food from caking onto the dishes, you can run
the cold cycle.
-Choose the right wash cycle: the choice of cycle depends on
the type of dishware, cookware and utensils being washed and
how dirty they are.

How to keep Your Dishwasher in Shape

After Every Wash
After every wash, turn off the water supply to the appliance and
leave the door slightly ajar so that moisture and odours are not
trapped inside.
Remove the Plug
Before cleaning or performing maintenance, always remove the
plug from the socket. Do not run risks.
No Solvents or Abrasive Cleaning Products
To clean the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher, do not
use solvents or abrasive cleaning products. Use a cloth and warm
soapy water.
To remove spots or stains from the surface of the interior, use a
cloth dampened with water and a little white vinegar, or a clean-
ing product made specifically for dishwasher.

Cleaning and Special Maintenance

Filter Assembly
For best performance and results, the filter assembly must be
cleaned frequently.
The filter efficiently removes food residue 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 the upward direction. The entire filter as-
sembly (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
reinsert the entire assembly in the dishwasher, positioning in its
seat and pressing downward.
The dishwasher must never be used without the filters. Improper
replacement of the filters may reduce level of the appliance and
damage dishes and utensils.
-Use the right amount of detergent: if you use too much detergent,
the result will not be cleaner dishes, but, rather, a greater nega-
tive impact on the environment.
-There is no advantage in rinsing dishes, cookware and utensils
before placing them in the dishwasher.
Moving the Appliance
If the appliance must be moved, try to keep it in the vertical
If absolutely necessarty, it can be positioned on its back.
One of the factors that cause odours to form in the dishwasher
is food that remains trapped in the seals. Periodic cleaning with
a sponge will prevent this from occuring.
When You Go on Holiday
When you go on holiday, it is recommended that you run a wash
cycle with the dishwasher empty and then remove the plug from
the socket, turn off the water supply and leave the door of the
appliance slightly ajar. This will help the seals last longer and
prevent odours from forming within the appliance.
Cleaning the Spray Arms
It may happen that food particle become encrusted on the spray
arms and block the holes. Check the spray arms periodically and
clean them when needed.
Cleaning the Water Inlet Filter
Periodically clean the water inlet filter (see figure) 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.
