Maintenance and 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....).
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 a 65°C wash
programme without dishes using detergent.
Cleaning the central filters
(After each wash)
Inspect the central filters (B) and (C) and remove any scraps of
food with a brush, under running water.
Filters (B) and (C) are both removed by lifting up the outer one
(B) (pulling the central funnel upwards); the smaller filter (C)
can be removed by pressing the two tongues (D).
Once cleaned, refit the filters by pressing them down until they
click into place.
Cleaning the large filter
(Every week)
Clean the large filter (A) on both sides under running water,
using a brush.
To take it out, remove the
spray arm by pressing the
two tongues (E), turn the ring
(F) anticlockwise and then
slide the whole part out. Refit
the filter following the above
instructions in reverse order.
The dishwasher must not be used without filters.
Incorrect repositioning and fitting of the filters will
produce poor washing results.
Cleaning the filters is vital to ensure correct operation of
the machine.
To ensure a correct
working of the dishwasher,
NEVER try to remove the
upper spray arm.
If residues of soil have
clogged the holes in the
upper spray arm, remove
them with a toothpick.

Prolonged periods of non-operation

If you are not using the machine for any period of time you are
advised to:
1. Unplug the appliance and then turn off the water.
2. Fill the rinse aid dispenser.
3. Leave the door ajar to prevent the formation of any
unpleasant smells.
4. 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

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.
