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 soak 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 odors 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. Rather, use only 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 cleaning
product made specifically for dishwashers.

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
assembly (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
assembly 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.
-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.
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 odors from forming within the appliance.
Moving the Appliance
If the appliance must be moved, try to keep it in a vertical position.
If absolutely necessary, it can be positioned on its back.
One of the factors that cause odors to form in the dishwasher is
food that remains trapped in the seals. Periodic cleaning with a
damp sponge will prevent this from occurring.
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 D-F ). 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.
