Water connection

When inserting the machine, ensure that the water inlet hose, the drain hose and the supply
cable are not kinked or squashed.

Fixing to the adjacent units

The dishwasher must be secured against tilting.
Therefore make sure that the counter it is fixed under, is suitably secured to a fixed structure
(adjacent kitchen unites, cabinets, wall).


Good levelling is essential for correct closure and sealing of the door. When the appliance
is correctly levelled, the door will not catch on either side of the cabinet. If the door does
not close correctly, loosen or tighten the adjustable feet until the machine is perfectly level.

Water supply connections

This appliance can be connected to either a hot (max. 60°) or cold water supply.

For making the connection itself, the coupling nut fitted to the machine's supply hose is
designed to screw onto a 3/4" thread spout or to a purpose made quick-coupling tap such
as the Press-block.
The water pressure must be within the limits given in the "Technical specifications". Your
local Water Authority will advise you on the average mains pressure in your area.
The water inlet hose must not be kinked, crushed, or entangled when it is being connected.
The dishwasher features fill and drain hoses which can be turned either to the left or the
right to suit the installation by means of the locknut.

(Attention! NOT all models of dishwashers have fill and drain hoses provided with locknut.
In this case, this kind of facility is not possible). If the machine is connected to new pipes
or pipes which have not been used for a long time, you should run the water for a few
minutes before connecting the inlet hose.
DO NOT use connection hoses which have previously been used for an old appliance.
This appliance has been fitted with safety features which will prevent the water used in
the appliance from returning back into the drinking water system. This appliance complies
with the applicable plumbing regulations.

Water inlet hose with safety valve
