External cleaning

Clean the external surfaces of the machine and control panel with a damp soft cloth. If
necessary use only neutral detergents. Never use abrasive products, scouring pads or solvent
(acetone, trichloroethylene etc....).

Internal cleaning

Ensure that the seals around the door, the detergent and rinse aid dispensers are cleaned
regularly with a damp cloth.
We recommend every 3 months to run the wash programme for heavy soiled dishes using
detergent but without dishes.

Prolonged periods of non-operation

If you are not using the machine for any prolonged period of time you are advised to:
1. Unplug the appliance and then turn off the water.
2. Leave the door ajar to prevent the formation of any unpleasant smells.
3. Leave the inside of the machine clean.

Frost precautions

Avoid placing the machine in a location where the temperature is below 0°C. If this is
unavoidable, empty the machine, close the appliance door, disconnect the water inlet pipe
and empty it.

Moving the machine

If you have to move the machine (moving house etc....):
1. Unplug it.
2. Turn the water tap off.
3. Remove the water inlet and discharge hoses.
4. Pull the machine out together with the hoses.
Avoid over tilting the machine during transportation.

lack of simple maintenance or oversights, which can be solved with the help of the indi-
cations described in the chart, without calling out an engineer.
