Your dishwasher has been carefully designed to operate safely during normal dishwashing procedures. Please keep the following instructions in mind when you are using your dishwasher.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING! - When using your dishwasher, follow basic precautions, including the following: Read all instructions before using the dishwasher. The information in this manual must be followed to minimise the risk of fire or explosion or to prevent property damage, personal injury or loss of life.
Use the dishwasher only for its intended function as described in this user guide and in your
‘Quick start guide’.
This appliance is intended to be used in household and similar applications such as: – staff kitchen areas in shops, offices and other working environments; – farm houses; – by clients in hotels, motels and other residential type environments;
bed and breakfast type environments. Use only detergents or rinse aid recommended for use in a domestic dishwasher and keep them out of reach of children. Check that the detergent dispenser is empty after the completion of each wash program. When loading items to be washed, locate sharp items so that they are not likely to damage the internal lid of the dishwasher and load sharp knives with the handle up to reduce the risk of cut­type injuries. Do not touch the filter plate (the round metal disc in the dishwasher base) during or immediately after use, as it may be hot from the heater plate underneath. Do not operate your dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are properly in place. Do not tamper with the controls. Do not abuse, sit on, stand in or on the drawer or dish rack of the dishwasher. The drawer should not be left in the open position since this could present a tripping hazard. The adjustable racks are designed to support cups, glasses and kitchen utensils. When the adjustable racks are in the drawer do not lean on or use them to support your body weight. To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or on the dishwasher. Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water heater system that has not been used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not been used for such a period, before using the dishwasher, turn on all hot water taps and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time. Remove the door to the washing compartment when removing an old dishwasher from service or discarding it.
Some dishwasher detergents are strongly alkaline. They can be extremely dangerous if
swallowed. Avoid contact with the skin and eyes and keep children away from the dishwasher when the door is open. Check that the detergent receptacle is empty after completion of the wash cycle.

Dispose of an old battery responsibly, keeping it out of reach of children.
Operational
Under no circumstances should you open the drawer whilst the dishwasher is in operation. Always press the opening the drawer. The dishwasher must be used with the motor assembly, filter plate, drain filter and spray arm(s) in place. To identify what these parts are, see drawings in section ‘User maintenance instructions’ of this user guide. Take care when loading the drawer not to load dishware items so they prevent the internal lid from properly sealing with the drawer. Items should be placed so they do not protrude above and/or forced into the drawer, otherwise a service call may result. Household appliances are not intended to be played with by children. Children or persons with a disability which limits their ability to use the appliance, should have a responsible person instruct them in its use. The instructor should be satisfied that they can then use the appliance without danger to themselves or their surroundings. Close supervision is necessary if this appliance is used by or near children. Do not allow children
to play inside, on or with this appliance or any discarded appliance.
If a dishwasher cleaner is used, we would strongly recommend a wash program with detergent should be run immediately afterward, to prevent any damage to the dishwasher. The dishwasher is designed for washing normal household utensils. Items that are contaminated by petrol, paint, steel or iron debris, corrosive, acidic or alkaline chemicals are not to be washed in the dishwasher. If the dishwasher is not being used for long periods of time, turn the electricity and water supply to the dishwasher off.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Caring for your dinnerware
The combination of high temperatures and dishwasher detergent may cause damage to some items if they are washed in the dishwasher. Remember, if in any doubt about any aspect concerning items washed in the dishwasher, follow the instructions from the manufacturer of the items, or wash the item by hand.
Cutlery & silverware
All cutlery and silverware should be rinsed immediately after use to prevent tarnishing caused by some foods. The Rinse wash program is useful for this. Silver items should not come into contact with stainless steel, eg other cutlery. Mixing these items can cause staining. Remove silver cutlery from the dishwasher and hand dry it immediately after the program has finished.
Aluminium
Aluminium can be dulled by dishwasher detergent. The degree of change depends on the quality of the product.
Other metals
Iron and cast iron objects can rust and stain other items. Copper, pewter and brass tend to stain.
Woodware
Wooden items are generally sensitive to heat and water. Regular use in the dishwasher may cause deterioration over time. If in doubt, wash by hand.
Glassware
Most everyday glassware is dishwasher safe. Crystal, very fine and antique glassware may etch that is, become opaque. You may prefer to wash these items by hand.
Plastic
Some plastic may change shape or colour with hot water. Check manufacturer’s instructions about washing plastic items. Washable plastic items should be weighed down so they do not flip over and fill with water or fall through the base rack during the wash. Use the multi-purpose clip (supplied with some models only) to hold plastic items in place.
Decorated items
Most modern china patterns are dishwasher safe. Antique items, those with a pattern painted over the glaze, gold rims or hand painted china may be more sensitive to machine washing. If in doubt, wash by hand.
Glued items
Certain adhesives are softened or dissolved in machine washing. If in doubt, wash by hand.

Racking features
Cutlery basket
To reduce the risk of injury, we recommend loading knives and sharp utensils with handles facing up. Mix spoons, knives and forks within each section to stop cutlery nesting together and to ensure the water circulates freely. Keep stainless steel from touching silver cutlery to avoid staining.
Removable small items container
Small, light items like baby bottle teats are best placed into the small items container to prevent them from being displaced during the wash. You can extend your cutlery basket by clipping the container on its side.
Cutlery baskets will vary depending on model.
Racking features
Removable small items container
To optimise the cutlery space within the basket, the small items container can be placed elsewhere on the base rack. If laid flat, make sure the solid plastic side is facing up. If you place a fully laden small items container under the adjustable racks, it is best to leave the rack space directly above the container empty: there may not be enough water reaching items that are placed there.
9
Removable tablet tray
If you are using dishwasher tablets, place them on the removable tablet tray, as shown. See also ‘Adding detergent’ for more information.
Important!
Dishwasher tablets should not be in direct contact with dishes or cutlery.
10
Racking features
Racking features will vary depending on model.
Stemware notches
These notches help support long-stemmed glassware.
Glass supports
These clip on the rack wires to give your tall glasses extra stability.
Spacing-adjustable tines
(DD24/DD60 models only)
Designed to fit deep bowls (wide spacing) or small plates (narrow spacing), depending on adjustment. To adjust between wide and narrow spacings, slide the tines backward or forward by the handle at the front.
Cup rack with folding support wire
(DD36/DD90 models only)
Fold the wire up to support tall glasses.
Racking features
Adjustable racks
You can adjust these independently of each other to any height:
1
Fold up to unlock the rack.
2
Adjust the height to suit by sliding up or down.
3
Fold down to lock in position.
Fold the racks away if you need the space.
Knife clip
This clips onto the adjustable racks and supports knives and other utensils during the wash. Always ensure that knife blades are facing down.
11
Multi-purpose clip
(DD36/DD90 models only)
This keeps flimsy items (eg plastic lids and bottles) or large platters and plates stable, so they cannot be dislodged during the wash. Slide the item between the prongs of the clip.
Folding tines
For optimum stability, place larger plates between the longer tines in the front. Release and fold the tine sections down towards each other if you need the space for pots or other large items.
12
Loading suggestions
When loading your drawer, make sure that
you place items so that water coming from the rotating spray arms below can reach all areas
(wash performance will be reduced if it can’t) nothing blocks the water from getting to items on the adjustable racks glass and other fragile items are stable, so that they do not accidentally topple and break during the wash.
How NOT to load your drawer
Overcrowded and wash water will not reach some of the dinnerware. Cups, glasses and bowls must have their openings facing down.
Ensure dishware items are not forced into or protrude out of the drawer, as this may prevent the internal lid of the drawer from properly sealing which could result in a service call. Locate sharp items safely to prevent injuring the user and damaging the lid assembly. Check the bottom of the cutlery basket to ensure sharp or pointed items have not come through as they may stop spray arm rotation.
The plates are nesting together and wash water may not get through. Ensure cutlery are not nesting or stuck together. They need to be evenly spread out.
Ensure cutlery has not fallen through the base rack and stopped the spray arms from rotating. The large bowl is blocking wash water reaching the adjustable racks. Large utensils should be on the adjustable racks so they do not become dislodged and stop the spray arms from rotating. Sharp or pointed items must be placed horizontally or with sharp edges/points facing down to avoid risk of injury.
Water hardness and dishwashing
What is water hardness?
Hard water is water with a high concentration of minerals such as calcium and magnesium. In soft water, this concentration is low. Water hardness varies by geographical location.
How does water hardness affect dishwashing?
Hard water can be detrimental to the performance of your dishwasher. Over time, glassware washed in hard water will become opaque and dishes will become spotted or covered in a white film. Using very hard water can cause dishwasher parts to fail over time. Naturally soft or softened water has no detrimental effects if used with the correct amount of detergent. However, excess detergent combined with hot, soft water may cause irreversible etching on glassware. Etching first appears as a rainbow-coloured film and—if allowed to continue—can make glassware permanently opaque.
What can I do to minimise any detrimental effects?
Contact your local water company to find out about water hardness in your area.
If your home has hard water and your dishwasher has no built-in water softener…
Follow the detergent quantity recommendations on the following pages. If available, use a detergent with high phosphate content. Phosphate softens the water and this improves wash results. If detergent with phosphate is not available, we recommend using multi­purpose tablets. Use rinse aid. We recommend you turn the rinse aid setting to 5 to help improve wash performance. Use a dishwasher cleaner/descaler regularly, or whenever you notice a build-up of limescale deposits in your dishwasher.
Important!
We recommend fitting a water softener to the household water supply. If the water hardness in your home is above 250 ppm/14.6 gpg, a water softener has to be fitted to maintain the performance of your dishwasher.
13
If your home has naturally soft or softened water…
Avoid using too much detergent. Follow the quantity recommendations on the following pages. Ensure the drawer is not overloaded and water can reach all the dishes.
