Installation

Keep this instruction manual in a safe place for

EN

future reference. If the appliance is sold, given away or

 

 

moved, please ensure the manual is kept with the

 

machine, so that the new owner may benefit from the

 

advice contained within it.

 

 

Please read this instruction manual carefully: it

 

 

 

contains important information regarding the safe

 

installation, use and maintenance of the appliance.

 

 

If the appliance must be moved at any time, keep it in

 

 

 

an upright position; if absolutely necessary, it may be

 

tilted onto its back.

 

Positioning and levelling

1.Remove the appliance from all packaging and check that it has not been damaged during transportation.

If it has been damaged, contact the retailer and do not proceed any further with the installation process.

2.Check the dishwasher by placing it so that its sides or back panel are in contact with the adjacent cabinets or even with the wall. This appliance can also be recessed

under a single worktop* (see the Assembly instruction sheet).

3.Position the dishwasher on a level and sturdy floor. If the floor is uneven, the front feet of the appliance may be adjusted until it reaches a horizontal position. If the appliance is levelled correctly, it will be more stable and much less likely to move or cause vibrations and noise while it is operating.

4.Adjust the height of the rear foot from the front of the appliance* on the central lower part of the dishwasher, turning a hexagonal spanner (red color) with an opening of 8 mm in a clockwise direction to increase the height or in an anticlockwise direction to decrease the height.

Connecting the water and electricity supplies

Connection to the water and electricity supplies should only be performed by a qualified technician.

The dishwasher should not stand on top of the water hoses or the electricity supply cable.

The appliance must be connected to the water supply network using new hoses.

Do not use old hoses.

The water inlet (A) and outlet (B) hoses and the electricity supply cable may be positioned towards the right or the left in order to achieve the best possible installation (see figure).

Connecting the water inlet hose

To a suitable cold water connection point: before attaching the hose, run the water until it is perfectly clear so that any impurities that may be present in the water do not clog the appliance; after performing this operation, screw the inlet hose tightly onto a tap with a ¾ gas threaded connection.

To a suitable hot water connection point: your dishwasher may be supplied with hot water from the mains supply (if you have a central heating system with radiators) provided that it does not exceed a temperature of 60°C.

Screw the hose to the tap as described for connection to a cold water supply.

If the inlet hose is not long enough, contact a specialist store or an authorised technician (see Assistance).

The water pressure must be within the values indicated in the Technical data table (see adjacent information).

The hose should not be bent or compressed.

Anti-floodingprotection

To ensure floods do not occur, the dishwasher:

- is provided with a special system which blocks the water supply in the event of anomalies or leaks from inside the appliance.

Some models are also equipped with the supplementary safety device New Acqua Stop*, which guarantees antiflooding protection even in the event of a supply hose rupture.

WARNING: HAZARDOUS VOLTAGE!

Under no circumstance should the water inlet hose be cut as it contains live electrical parts.

* Only available in selected models.

2

Connecting the water outlet hose

Connect the outlet hose (without bending it) to a drain duct with a minimum diameter of 4 cm. Alternatively, rest it over a sink or tub; the free end of the hose should not remain immersed in water.

A

(see figure).

The special plastic elbow* makes it easier to find the best layout: fix the elbow to the wall securely in order to prevent the outlet hose from moving and spilling the dirty water.

The part of the hose marked with the letter A should be between 40 and 100 cm above the ground

We advise against the use of hose extensions.

Electrical connection

Before inserting the plug into the electrical socket, make sure that:

The socket is earthed and complies with current regulations.

The socket can withstand the maximum load of the appliance, which is indicated on the data plate located on the inside of the door (see chapter entitled Description of the appliance).

The power supply voltage falls within the values indicated on the data plate on the inside of the door.

The socket is compatible with the plug of the appliance. If this is not the case, ask an authorised technician to replace the plug (see Assistance); do not use extension cables or multiple sockets.

Once the appliance has been installed, the power supply cable and the electrical socket should be easily accessible.

The cable should not be bent or compressed.

If the power supply cable is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or its Technical Assistance Service in order to prevent all potential hazards. (See Assistance)

The Company shall not be held responsible for any incidents that occur if these regulations are not observed.

Anti-condensationstrip*

After installing the dishwasher, open the door and stick

EN

 

the adhesive transparent strip under the wooden shelf in

 

order to protect it from any condensation which may

 

form.

 

Advice regarding the first wash cycle

After the appliance has been installed, immediately before running the first wash cycle, completely fill the salt dispenser with water and add only then approximately 1 kg of salt (see chapter entitled Rinse aid and refined salt). The water may overflow: this is normal and is not a cause for concern. Select the water hardness value (see chapter entitled Rinse aid and refined salt). - After the salt has been poured into the machine, the LOW SALT indicator light* switches off.

If the salt container is not filled, the water softener and the heating element may be damaged as a result.

Loading the racks

Before loading the racks, remove all food residues fromEN the crockery and empty liquids from glasses and cups.

After loading the appliance, check that the sprayer arms can rotate freely.

Lower rack

The lower rack can hold pans, lids, plates, salad bowls, cutlery, etc. as seen in the Loading examples.

Plates and large covers should be placed at the sides of the rack, ensuring that they do not block the rotation of the upper sprayer arm.

Some dishwasher models are fitted with tip-upsections*, which can be used in a vertical position when arranging plates or in a horizontal position when arranging pans and salad bowls.

Cutlery basket

The type of cutlery basket may vary according to the dishwasher model: it may be modular, non-modularor a sliding version. Thenon-modularbasket must only be positioned at the front of the lower rack.

The modular basket may be separated into two parts, a solution which is recommended when performing a half load wash (only in models offering this option), is available in a sliding version (positioned at any point on the lower rack by sliding it between the fixed or tip-upinserts.

- Both versions are fitted with a collapsible sliding system which means the cutlery can be arranged in the best possible way.

Knives and other utensils with sharp edges must be placed in the cutlery basket with the points facing downwards, or they must be positioned horizontally in the tipup compartments on the upper rack.

Cutlery basket positioning examples

Upper rack

Load this rack with delicate and lightweight crockery: glasses, tea and coffee cups, saucers, small salad bowls, saucepans and small saucepans which are not too soiled, using the Loading examples as a guide.

Mugs and cups: place these on the tip-upcompartments**.

Long sharp knives and serving utensils: place these on the tip-upcompartments**.

Adjusting the height of the upper rack

In order to make it easier to arrange the crockery, the upper rack may be moved to a higher or lower level.

The height of the upper rack should ideally be adjusted WHEN THE RACK IS EMPTY.

Never lift or lower the rack on one side only.

Open the left and right guide rail stops and pull out the rack; position it higher or lower as required, slide it along the guide rails until the front wheels are in place and close the stops (see figure).

If the rack is fitted with Dual Space handles* (see figure), pull out the upper rack until it reaches its stop point, grip the handles at the sides of the rack and move it upwards or downwards, then slowly let it fall back into place.

Loading examples for the upper rack

Loading examples for the lower rack

Items which should not be washed in the dishwasher

Wooden items, objects with wooden or horn handles or glued-onparts.

Items made from aluminium, copper, brass, pewter or tin.

Items made from plastic material which is not heat-resistant.

Antique or hand-paintedporcelain.

Antique silver. Silver which is not antique may, however, be washed in the dishwasher using a delicate wash cycle, provided that it does not come into contact with other metals.

We recommend the use of crockery which is dishwasher safe.

* Only available in selected models.** The number and position may vary.

Start-upand use

Starting the dishwasher

1.Turn the water tap on.

2.Open the door and press the ON/OFF button: you will hear a short beep and the ON/OFF and wash cycle indicator lights switch on for a few seconds.

3.Measure out the detergent (see below).

4.Load the racks (see chapter entitled Loading the racks).

5.Select the wash cycle in accordance with the type of crockery and its soil level (see Table of wash cycles), by pressing the SELECT WASH CYCLE button; the indicator light corresponding to the selected wash cycle will switch on.

7.Start the wash cycle by shutting the door: after a few seconds have passed, a long beep signals the start of the wash cycle.

8.Two short beeps and one long one indicate the end of the wash cycle and the indicator light corresponding to the wash cycle flashes slowly. Open the door, switch off the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF button, shut off the water tap and unplug the appliance from the electricity socket.

9.Wait for a few minutes before removing the crockery, in order to avoid burns. Unload the racks, beginning with the lower level.

The order in which the different wash programmes are displayed will change according to the frequency with which each cycle is used.

Modifying a wash cycle in progress

If a mistake was made during the wash cycle selection process it is possible to change the cycle, provided that it has only just begun: open the door, taking care to avoid the escaping steam, and press and hold the ON/OFF button; the machine will switch off with a long beep. Switch the machine back on using the ON/OFF button and select the new wash cycle using the SELECT WASH CYCLE button; start the cycle by closing the door.

Adding extra crockery

Without switching off the machine, open the door, taking care to avoid the escaping steam, and place the crockery inside the dishwasher. Close the door: the cycle starts from the point at which it was interrupted.

Accidental interruptions

If the door is opened during the wash cycle, or if there is a power cut, the cycle stops. It starts again from the point at which it was interrupted once the door has been shut or the electricity supply is restored.

Measuring out the detergent

A good wash result also depends on the correct

EN

 

amount of detergent being used; exceeding the

 

stated amount does not result in a more effective

 

wash and increases environmental pollution.

 

 

Only use detergent which has been

 

 

 

specifically designed for dishwashers.

 

 

DO NOT USE washing up liquid.

 

 

 

 

Using excessive detergent may result in foam

 

 

 

residue remaining in the machine after the cycle

 

has ended.

 

 

The use of tablets is only recommended for

 

 

 

models which offer the MULTI-FUNCTIONAL

 

TABLETS option.

 

 

To achieve the best results from each washing

 

 

 

and drying cycle, powder detergent, rinse aid

 

liquid and salt should be used.

 

Compartment A: Washing detergent

Compartment B: Pre-washdetergent

1. Open cover C by pressing button D.

2. Pour in the detergent after consulting the Table of wash

cycles:

• For powder detergent use

compartments A and B.

• For detergent in tablet form:

when the cycle requires 1 tablet, place it in compartment A and close the cover; when it requires 2, place the second tablet at the bottom of the appliance.

3. Remove detergent residues from the edges of the compartment and close the cover until it clicks.

Care and maintenance

EN

Shutting off the water and electricity

supplies

Turn off the water tap after every wash cycle to avoid

 

leaks.

Always unplug the appliance when cleaning it and

 

when performing maintenance work.

Cleaning the dishwasher

The external surfaces of the machine and the control

 

panel may be cleaned using a non-abrasivecloth

 

which has been dampened with water. Do not use

 

solvents or abrasive products.

Any marks on the inside of the appliance may be

 

removed using a cloth dampened with water and a

 

little vinegar.

Preventing unpleasant odours

Always keep the door of the appliance ajar in order to

 

avoid moisture from forming and being trapped inside

 

the machine.

Clean the seals around the door and detergent

 

dispensers regularly using a damp sponge. This will

 

avoid food becoming trapped in the seals, which is

 

the main cause behind the formation of unpleasant

 

odours.

Clean the water inlet filter at the tap outlet regularly.

-Turn off the water tap.

-Unscrew the end of the water inlet hose, remove the filter and clean it carefully under running water.

-Replace the filter and screw the water hose back into

position.

Cleaning the filters

The filter assembly consists of three filters which remove food residues from the washing water and then recirculate the water. They should be cleaned if you wish to achieve the best results in every wash.

Clean the filters regularly.

The dishwasher should not be used without filters, or if the filter is loose.

• After several washes, check the filter assembly and if necessary clean it thoroughly under running water, using a non-metallicbrush and following the instructions below:

1.Turn the cylindrical filter C in an anti-clockwisedirection and pull it out (fig. 1).

2.Remove the cup filter B by exerting a slight pressure on the side flaps (fig. 2).

3.Slide out the stainless steel plate filter A (fig. 3).

4.Inspect the trap and remove any food residue. NEVER REMOVE the wash cycle pump (black detail) (fig. 4).

operation of the dishwasher.

 

 

 

Leaving the machine unused for extended periods

Cleaning the water inlet filter* If the water hoses are new or have not been used for an extended period of time, let the water run to make sure it is clear and free of impurities before performing the necessary connections. If this precaution is not taken, the water inlet could become blocked and damage the dishwasher.

Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply and shut off the water tap.

Leave the door of the appliance ajar.

When you return, run a wash cycle when the dishwasher is empty.

* Only available in selected models.

Precautions and advice

This appliance was designed and manufactured in compliance with current international safety standards. The following information has been provided for safety reasons and should therefore be read carefully.

General safety

The appliance was designed for domestic use inside the home and is not intended for commercial or industrial use.

The appliance must be used by adults only, to wash domestic crockery in accordance with the instructions in this manual.

The appliance must not be installed outdoors, even in covered areas. It is extremely dangerous to leave the machine exposed to rain and storms.

Do not touch the appliance when barefoot.

When unplugging the appliance always pull the plug from the mains socket, do not pull on the cable.

The water supply tap must be shut off and the plug should be removed from the electrical socket before cleaning the appliance or carrying out any maintenance work.

If the appliance breaks down, do not under any circumstances touch the internal parts in an attempt to perform the repair work yourself.

Never touch the heating element.

Do not lean or sit on the open door of the appliance: this may cause the appliance to overturn.

The door should not be left open as it may create a dangerous obstacle.

Keep detergent and rinse aid out of reach of children.

The packaging material should not be used as a toy.

Disposal

Disposal of packaging materials: observe local legislation so that the packaging may be reused.

The European Directive 2002/96/EC relating to Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) states that household appliances should not be disposed of using the normal solid urban waste cycle. Exhausted appliances should be collected separately in order to optimise the cost of re-usingand recycling the materials inside the machine, while preventing potential damage to the atmosphere and to public health. Thecrossed-outdustbin is marked on all products to remind the owner of their obligations regarding separated waste collection.

For further information relating to the correct disposal of household appliances, owners may contact the relevant public authority or the local appliance dealer.

Saving energy and respecting the

environment

EN

 

Saving water and energy

Only begin a wash cycle when the dishwasher is full. While waiting for the dishwasher to be filled, prevent unpleasant odours using the Soak cycle (see Wash cycles).

Select a wash cycle which is suited to the type of crockery and to the soil level of the crockery using the

Table of wash cycles:

-For dishes with a normal soil level, use the Eco wash cycle, which guarantees low energy and water consumption levels.

-If the load is smaller than usual activate the Half load option* (seeStart-upand use).

If your electricity supply contract gives details of electricity saving time bands, run wash cycles during

the periods when a lower tariff is applied. The Delayed start* button (seeStart-upand use) helps

you organise the wash cycles accordingly.

Phosphate-freeandchlorine-freedetergents containing enzymes

We strongly recommend that you use detergents that do not contain phosphates or chlorine, as these products are harmful to the environment.

Enzymes provide a particularly effective action at temperatures around 50°C, and as a result detergents containing enzymes can be used in conjunction with low-temperaturewash cycles in order to achieve the same results as a normal 65°C wash cycle.

To avoid wasting detergent, use the product in appropriate quantities based on the manufacturer’s recommendations, the hardness of the water and the soil level and quantity of crockery to be washed. Even if they are biodegradable, detergents contain substances which may alter the balance of nature.

* Only available in selected models.
