Set the water softener Set the water softener The dishwasher is equipped with a water softener designed to remove minerals and salts from the water supply, which would have a detrimental or adverse effect on the operation of the appliance. The higher the content of these minerals and salts, the harder your water is.
Set the water softener 1. Open the dishwasher door. 2. Remove the lower basket from the dishwasher. 3. Turn the water hardness dial to posi- tion 1 or 2 (see table). 4. Replace the lower basket. Setting electronically The dishwasher is factory set at level 5. 1.
Use of dishwasher salt Use of dishwasher salt WARNING! Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers. All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in a dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water softener. Only fill with salt just before starting one of the complete washing programmes.
Use of rinse aid Use of rinse aid WARNING! Only use branded rinse aid for dishwashers. Never fill the rinse aid dispenser with any other substances (e.g. dishwasher clean- ing agent, liquid detergent). This would damage the appliance. Rinse aid ensures thorough rinsing, and spot and streak free drying. Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse.
Daily use Adjusting the dosage of rinse aid According to the finish and drying results obtained, adjust the dose of rinse aid by means of the 6 position selector (position 1= minimum dosage, position 6= maxi- mum dosage). The dose is factory set in position 4. Increase the dose if there are drops of water or lime spots on the dishes after washing.
Loading cutlery and dishes • When loading the dishes and cutlery, please note: – Dishes and cutlery must not impede the rotation of the spray arms. – Load hollow items such as cups, glasses, pans, etc. with the opening down- wards so that water cannot collect in the container or a deep base.
Loading cutlery and dishes The lower basket Load larger and heavily soiled dishes and pans in the lower basket. To make it easier to load larger dishes, the 2 plate racks on the right in the lower basket can be folded down. The cutlery basket WARNING! Long bladed knives stored in an upright position are a potential hazard.
Loading cutlery and dishes 1. Place the grid insert on the cutlery basket. 2. Place forks and spoon in the cutlery basket with their handles pointing downwards. For larger utensils, such as whisks, leave off one half of the cutlery grid. The upper basket Load smaller, fragile crockery and long, sharp cutlery in the upper basket.
Use of detergent • The cup racks can be folded up out of the way for tall crockery items. • Lay or hang wine and brandy glasses in the slots in the cup racks. Use of detergent Only use detergents specifically designed for use in dishwashers. Please observe the manufacturer's dosing and storage recommendations as stated on the detergent packaging.
Use of detergent 2. Fill the detergent dispenser (1) with detergent. The marking indicates the dosing levels: 20 = approximately 20 g of detergent 30 = approximately 30 g of detergent. 3. All programmes with prewash need an additional detergent dose (5/10 g) that must be placed in the prewash detergent chamber (2).
Washing programmes The refilling of the salt container and the rinse aid dispenser are no longer necessary. In this case the rinse aid indicator light will always remain illuminated when the machine is switched on (not all dishwasher models are foreseen with rinse aid indicator light).
Select and start a washing programme Programme Degree of Type of load Programme description Consumption val- soil Normal soil Crockery and ECO 50° cutlery PREWASH Partial load (to be com- pleted later in the day) 1) The consumption values are intended as a guide and depends on the pressure and the temperature of the water and also by the variations of the power supply and the amount of dishes.
Select and start a washing programme During the running of the programme, it is not possible to change the selection made by turning the programme knob in correspondence of another programme or the Off position. If you want to change the running programme you must cancel the selection made (see "Cancel a washing programme in progress").
Unloading the dishwasher • Press the START/RESET button for about 5 seconds. The START/RESET indi- cator light turns off and the phase indicator lights are flashing. The running programme has been cancelled and it is now possible to set a new washing programme or switch off the machine.
Care and cleaning WARNING! Before cleaning the filters ensure that the machine is switched off. 1. Open the door, remove the lower basket. 2. The dishwasher filter system compri- ses a coarse filter (A), a microfilter (B) and a flat filter. Unlock the filter system using the handle on the mi- crofilter, and remove the filter system.
Care and cleaning WARNING! NEVER use the dishwasher without filters. Incorrect repositioning and fitting of the filters will produce poor washing results and may result in damage to the appliance. Cleaning the spray arms NEVER try to remove the spray arms. If residues of soil have clogged the holes in the spray arms, remove them with a cocktail stick.

Hints for test institutes Hints for test institutes Testing in accordance with EN 60704 must be carried out with appliance fully loaded and using the test programme (see "Washing programmes"). Test in accordance with EN 50242 must be carried out when the salt container and rinse aid dispenser have been filled with salt and rinse aid respectively and using the test programme (see "Washing programmes").

Installation Installation instructions Installation WARNING! Any electrical and/or plumbing work required to install this appliance should be carried out by a qualified electrician and/or plumber or competent person. Remove all packaging before positioning the machine. If possible, position the machine next to a water tap and a drain. This dishwasher is designed to be fitted under a kitchen counter or work surface.
Water supply connections Connection to a cold water supply is advised. If connection is made to a hot water supply the maximum permissible temperature is 60°C. A hot water supply is not always efficient with very soiled crockery as it shortens the washing programmes a lot.
• If water inlet hose or the safety valve is damaged, remove the mains plug immediately. • A water inlet hose with safety valve must only be replaced by a specialist or by the Service Force Centre. • Place the water inlet hose in such a way that it is never higher than the bottom edge of the safety valve.
Electrical connection If you use a drain hose extension it must be no longer than 2 metres and its internal diameter must be no smaller than the diameter of the hose provided. Likewise the internal diameter of the couplings used for connections to the waste outlet must be no smaller than the diameter of the hose provided.
