WASH CYCLE ADJUSTMENT BUTTONS

Plus Button

This button (see " Control panel " ) is used with the normal cycle where pots and pans have dry, caked-on food.

This is not recommended for delicate items as the high temperature could make their surfaces opaque or their decorative colors lighten after repeated washings.

Rapid Button

This button (see " Control panel") when used with wash cycle 4 (glassware) makes it possible to run the wash cycle at a lower temperature (50 C) and eliminates the drying phase.

3

If you are filling the container for the first time, fill 2/3 of its volume with water.

WATER SOFTENER

There are two ways to reduce the water hardness: one way is by using water softener, the other is by using detergent.

The hardness of the water varies from place to place. If hard water is used in the dishwasher, deposits will form on the dishes and utensils.

The appliance is equipped with a special softener that uses salt specifically designed to eliminate lime and minerals from the water.

Loading the Salt into the Softener

Always use salt intended for use with dishwashers.

The salt container is located beneath the lower rack and should be filled as follows:

1Remove the lower basket and unscrew and remove the cap from the salt container.

2

3Place the end of the salt filter(supplied) into the hole and introduce about 2kg of salt. It is normal for a small amount of water to come out of the salt container.

4 Carefully screw on the cap.

NOTE: 1. The salt container must be refilled when the salt warning light comes on. Though the salt container is filled, the indicator light may not black out before the salt fully dissolves.

2. If there are spills of salt, a soak program could be run to clean the spills.

Adjusting Salt Consumption

The dishwasher is designed to allow for adjusting the amount of salt consumed based on the hardness of the water used. This is intended to optimize and customize the level of salt consumption.

1 Unscrew the cap from the salt container.

2There is a ring on the container with an arrow on it (see Figure to the side). If necessary, rotate the ring in the counterclockwise direction from the "-" setting toward the "+" sign, based on the hardness of the water being used.It is recommended that adjustments should be made in accordance with the following chart:

DETERGENT DISPENSER

The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each wash cycle according to the instructions provided in the" Wash Cycle Table". Our dishwashers use less detergent and rinse aid than conventional dishwashers. Generally, only one tablespoon of detergent is needed for a normal wash load. More heavily soiled items need more detergent. Always add the detergent just before starting dishwasher, otherwise it could get damp and will not dissolve properly.

Amount of Detergent to Use

IF THE WATER ISN'T TOO HARD, YOU MAY ALSO PREVENT THE FORMATION OF DEPOSITS BY ADDING DETERGENT. The amount of detergent needed can vary due to differences in water hardness. To determine the water hardness in your area, contact your local water utility or area water softening company. The harder the water, the more detergent you may need. Remember, you should adjust the amount of detergent you use little by little until you find the correct amount.

WARNING!

Removing Hard Water Spots

From Dishes

To remove hard water spots, try the following:

Run dishes through a normal wash program.

Remove all metal dishware, such as cutlery, pans, etc., from the dishwasher.

Do not add detergent.

Pour two cups of vinegar into a bowl and set the bowl face up on the lower rack of the dishwasher.

Run the dishes through a normal wash program.

If this doesn't work, try the same process with 1 / 4 cup of citric acid crystals instead of vinegar.

Proper Use of Detergent

Use only detergent specifically made for use in dishwashers. Keep your detergent fresh and dry. Don't put powder

detergent into the dispenser until you are ready to wash dishes.

Dishwasher detergent is corrosive! Take care to keep it out of the reach of children.

RINSE AID DISPENSER

To open the dispenser, turn the cap to the "open" (left) arrow and lift it out.

Pour the rinse aid into the dispenser, being careful not to overfill.

Replace the cap by inserting it aligned with "open" arrow and turning it to the "close" (right) arrow.

The rinse aid is released during the final rinse to prevent water from forming droplets on your dishes that can leave spots and streaks. It also improves drying by allowing water to "sheet" off the dishes.

Our dishwashers are designed to use liquid rinse aids. The rinse aid dispenser is located inside the door next to the detergent dispenser. To fill the dispenser, open the cap and pour the rinse aid into the dispenser until the level indicator turns completely black. The dispenser holds about 100 ml of liquid rinse aid.

Be careful not to overfill the dispenser, because this could cause over sudsing. Wipe away any spills with a damp cloth. Don't forget to replace the cap before you close the dishwasher door.

If you have soft water, you may not need rinse aid as it may cause a white film to develop on your dishes.

Adjusting Rinse Aid Dispenser

 

 

 

 

 

A measured amount of rinse aid is released during the final rinse. As with

detergent, the amount of rinse aid needed for your dishes depends on the

 

 

hardness of the water in your area. Too much rinse aid can result in lather or

foaming and can cause cloudiness or streaks on your dishes. If the water in

your area is very soft, you may not need rinse aid. If you do, you can dilute the rinse aid with an equal amount of water.

The rinse aid dispenser has six settings. Always start with the dispenser set on " 1 ". If spots and poor drying are problems, increase the amount of rinse aid dispensed by removing the dispenser lid and rotating the dial to "2". If the dishes still are not drying properly or are spotted, adjust the dial to the next higher number until your dishes are spot-free. We suggest the setting of "4".

When to Refill the Rinse Aid Dispenser

If there is no rinse aid warning light or the control panel, you can judge the amount of rinse aid by the following means. The black dot on the rinse aid dispenser indicates the amount of rinse aid in the dispenser. As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of the black dot decreases. You should never let the rinse aid get below 1 / 4 full.

As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of the black dot on the rinse aid level indicator changes, as illustrated below.

Loading the Dishwasher Racks

For best performance, follow these loading guidelines. Features and appearance of racks and silverware baskets may vary from your model.

How to use the Upper Rack

The upper rack is designed to hold more delicate and lighter dishware such as glasses, coffee and tea cup and saucers, as well as plates, small bowls and lightly soiled shallow pans.

Position the dishes and cookware so that they do not get moved by the spray of water.

The upper rack can be adjusted for height by putting wheels of different height into the rails.

How to use the Lower Rack

We recommend that you place large items in the lower rack: pots, pans, lids, serving dishes and bowls, as shown below.

It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the side of the racks in order to avoid blocking the rotation of the top spray arm.

Pots, serving bowls, etc, must always be placed top down.

Deep pots should be slanted to allow water flow.

The bottom rack features fold down tine rows so that larger or more pots and pans can be loaded.

TURNING ON THE APPLIANCE

Starting a wash cycle. . .

1 Make sure that the plug for the appliance is inserted into the wall socket.

2 Make sure that the water supply is turned on to full pressure.

3 Load the dishwasher(see the section entitled, " Loading the Dishwasher " ).

4 Pour in the detergent(see the section entitled, " Salt, Detergent and Rinse Aid " ).

5Turn the dial located on the right of the control panel in the clockwise direction until the number or the symbol for the cycle setting is aligned with the reference mark (see the section entitled, " Wash Cycle Table " ).

6 Press the ON/ OFF button, and the ON/OFF light will turn on. At this point, the wash cycle will begin.

7

Cancelling or modifying a wash cycle setting. . .

A cycle that is underway can only be modified if it has only been running for a short time. Otherwise, the detergent may have already been released, and the appliance may have already drained the wash water. If this is the case, the detergent dispenser must be refilled (see the paragraph entitled " Loading the Detergent " ).

Press the ON/OFF button, and the ON light will turn off. Rotate the dial in the clockwise direction to the desired cycle setting (see the section entitled " Starting a wash cycle. . . " ). Then, turn the dishwasher back on using the ON/OFF button.

At the End of the Wash Cycle

STOP

STOP

When the dial stops turning and is aligned with the STOP mark(see figure), the cycle has finished. Turn off the appliance using the ON/OFF button, shut off the water supply and open the door of the dishwasher. Wait a few minutes before unloading the dishwasher to avoid handling the dishes and utensils while they are still hot and more susceptible to breakage.

STOP

Forget to Add a Dish?

A forgotten dish can be added any time before the detergent cup opens.

1Pull the door handle.

2 Do not open the door until the water spray action stops. Steam may rise out of the dishwasher.

3 Add forgotten dishes.

4 Push the door to close. When the door is properly closed, a click will sound.

FILTERING SYSTEM

For your convenience, we have placed the drain pump and filtering system within easy reach inside the tub. There are three components of the filtering system: the main filter, the coarse filter, and the fine filter.

1Main filter

Food and soil particles trapped by this filter are pulverized by a special jet on the lower spray arm and washed down the drain.

1

2

2

Coarse filter

 

Larger items, such as pieces of bone or glass, that could clog the drain are trapped in the

coarse filter. To remove an item caught in this filter, gently squeeze the tabs on top of this filter and lift it out.

33 Fine filter

This filter holds soil and food residue in the sump area and prevents it from being redeposited on the dishes during a cycle.

CARING FOR THE DISHWASHER

To clean the control panel use a lightly dampened cloth then dry thoroughly. To clean the exterior use a good appliance polish wax.

Never use sharp objects, scouring pads or harsh cleaners on any part of the dishwasher.

Protect Against Freezing

If your dishwasher is left in an unheated place during the winter, ask a service technician to:

1Cut off electrical power to the dishwasher and remove fuses or trip circuit breaker.

2Turn off the water supply and disconnect the water inlet pipe from the water valve.

3Drain the water from the inlet pipe and water valve. (Use a pan to catch the water.)

4Reconnect the water inlet pipe to the water valve.

5Remove the plastic sump cover in the tub the bottom and use a sponge to soak up the water in rubber boot.

Tips Troubleshooting

Cleaning the Spray Arms

It is necessary to clean the spray arms regularly as hard water chemicals will clog the spray arm jets and bearings. To remove the spray arm, screw off the nut to take out the washer on top of the spray arm and remove the arm. Wash the arms in soapy, warm water and use a soft brush to clean the jets. Replace after rinsing them thoroughly.

Cleaning the Filters

Filter assembly

For best performance and results, the filter assembly must be cleaned.

The filter efficiently removes food particles from the wash water, allowing it to be recirculated during the cycle. For this reason, it is a good idea to remove the larger food particles trapped in the filter after each wash cycle by rinsing the semicircular filter and cup under running water.

To remove the filter assembly, pull on the cup handle in the upward direction. The entire filter assembly should be cleaned at least once a month.

To clean the coarse filter and the fine filter, use a cleaning brush. Then, reassemble the filter parts as shown in the figure at left and reinsert the entire assembly in the dishwasher, positioning in its seat and pressing downward.

The dishwasher must never be used without the filters. Improper replacement of the filter may reduce the performance level of the appliance and may damage dishes and utensils.

WARNING!

Never run the dishwasher without the filters in place.

Cleaning the Door

To clean the edge around the door, you should use only a soft warm, damp rag. To prevent penetration of water into the door lock and electrical components, do not use a spray cleaner of any kind.

Also, never use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads on the outer surfaces because they will scratch the finish. Some papers towels can also scratch or leave marks on the surface.

Cleaning the Drain Pump

Something will occasionally move into the filters and the drain pump. If this occurs, the drain pumps employed in our dishwashers are designed to automatically reverse, ejecting the item back into the sump area or down the drain. If you have to remove an obstacle from the drain pump, before you remove the filters, you should turn off the power; Then remove the small black insert from the sump area. (You might want to remove any standing water first). Scoop out the item that is probably in the

sump area and causing the obstruction. Remember to replace the black insert before replacing the filters.

How to Keep Your Dishwasher Running Properly

After Every Wash

After every wash, turn off the water supply to the appliance and leave the door slightly ajar so that moisture and odors are not trapped inside.

No Solvents or Abrasive Cleaning Products

When You Go on Holiday

When you go on holiday, it is recommended that you run a wash cycle with the dishwasher empty and then remove the plug from the socket, turn off the water supply and leave the door of the appliance slightly ajar. This will help the seals last longer and prevent odors from forming in the appliance.

To clean the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher, do not use solvents or abrasive cleaning products. Use only a cloth and warm, soapy water. To remove spots or stains from the surface of the interior, use a cloth dampened with warm water and a little white vinegar, or a cleaning product made specifically for dishwashers.

Seals

One of the factors that cause odors to form in the dishwasher is food that remains trapped in the seals. Periodic cleaning with a damp sponge will prevent this from occurring.

OVERFLOW CONDITIONS:

The dishwasher is designed to detect/monitor water overflow conditions. The overflow tube is located in the lower (well) section of the inner door liner. This tube must be kept free and clear of obstructions and debris. In the event of an overflow condition, the water level rises above the height of the overflow tube and is directed into the overflow container.

(located at the lower right side of the dishwasher)

When the water level reaches a predetermined height, the float switch is activated closing power to the water inlet valve and automatically turns on the pump to evacuate the water inside the tub only. The accumulated water inside the float container

must be discharged manually before the dishwasher can be re-started. To empty the float container, follow the instructions below.

BUILT-IN DISHWASHER (MODEL):

Remove the kick-plate by pulling forward.

Disconnect the dishwasher from the electrical power supply.

Disconnect the flexible (braid) hose from the water inlet valve.

IMPORTANT: Keep the dishwasher upright at all times.

The overflow container is located at the lower right side of the dishwasher. (See Fig. 1)

Carefully slide out the dishwasher just enough to access the overflow container.

Remove the rubber plug from the bottom of the float container. (See Fig. 2)

Allow the water to drain into a cup/container.

Replace the rubber plug, making sure it is firmly secured.

Re-install the kick-plate.

Carefully slide the dishwasher back into the cabinet.

The dishwasher is now ready to be restarted.
