5. Setting and starting the programme
To select a programme, press the button of the programme
you wish to select, (see "Washing programmes" chart), the
indicator light of the button illuminates and in the digital
display will appear, flashing, the running time of the
programme that has been set (in minutes).
The programme in progress indicator light illuminates.
After about 3 seconds from the last pressure of a button the
programme starts automatically.
In the digital display the running time of the programme is no
longer flashing, the programme in progress indicator light
remains illuminate.
Setting and starting the programme with the
delay start
The setting of the delay start occurs before selecting
the programme
Press the delay start button until the flashing number of the
hours for the delay start will appear in the digital display (from
1h to 19h).
Select a washing programme (see "Washing programmes"
chart). In the digital display will appear, for a moment, the
running time of the programme and then again appears the
selected delay start time.
As soon as the number of hours is displayed without flashing,
the countdown for the delay start is active.
The countdown will decrease with steps of 1 hour.
The opening of the door during the countdown will not modify
the delay start.
Once the delay start has elapsed the programme will start
automatically.
Note: With the delay start function setted, the programme
in progress indicator light is off. Once the countdown of the
delay start has elapsed, the washing programme will start
automatically and the programme in progress indicator light
will illuminate.
Note: it is possible to select a washing programme and the
"delay start" also with the door slightly opened.
In this case the start of the programme or of the countdown
will occur after the closure of the door.
Until that moment it is possible to modify the set made.
6. To interrupt or cancel a washing
programme in progress
Interrupt or cancel a washing programme in progress
ONLY if it's absolutely necessary.
Attention! Hot steam may escape when the door is
opened. Open the door carefully.
To interrupt a washing programme in
progress
a) Open the dishwasher door; the programme will stop.
Close the door; the programme will start from the point at
which it was interrupted.
b) Press the On/Off button, in this case all the indicator lights
turn off. Press the On/Off button again; the programme will
start from the point at which it was interrupted.
To cancel a washing programme in progress
To cancel a washing programme you have to reset the
dishwasher; press simultaneously the function buttons 2 and
3 for about 2 seconds, the indicator light of the running
programme starts flashing for about 2 seconds.
After about 2 seconds all the indicator lights will turn off
(except for the On/Off indicator light and eventually the
rinse aid and salt indicator lights) indicating that the running
programme has been cancelled.
If a new washing programme will be selected, check that
there is detergent in the detergent dispenser.
7. To cancel a "delay start" in progress
To cancel a delay start in progress you have to reset the
dishwasher; follow the same instructions given in "To cancel a
washing programme in progress". Cancelling a delay start
involves also the cancelling of the washing programme set.
In this case you have to set the washing programme again.
8. End of the washing programme
The dishwasher will automatically stop.
The programme in progress indicator light turns off.
The end of programme indicator light is illuminated.
In the digital display appears 0 (remaining programme time),
only in this case the programme has ended.
Switch off the dishwasher by pressing the On/Off button.
Open the dishwasher's door, leave it ajar and wait a few
minutes before removing the dishes; in this way they will be
cooler and the drying will be improved.
9. Unloading the dishwasher
Hot dishes are sensitive to knocks. The dishes should
therefore be allowed to cool down before removing from
the appliance.
Empty the lower basket first and then the upper one; this
will avoid water dripping from the upper basket onto the
dishes in the lower one.
Water may appear on the sides and the door of the
dishwasher as the stainless steel will eventually become
cooler than the dishes.
When the washing programme has finished, it is
recommended that the dishwasher is unplugged and the
water tap turned off.
