Keep this instruction manual in a safe place for 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



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.

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.

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 and outlet hoses and the electricity supply cable may be positioned towards the right or the left in order to achieve the best possible installation.

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 After Sales Service).

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.

Connecting the water outlet hose

Connect the outlet hose (without bending it) to a drain duct with a minimum diameter of 4 cm.

The outlet hose must be at a height ranging from 40 to 80 cm from the floor / surface where the dishwasher rests (A). Before connecting the water outlet hose to the sink drain, remove the plastic plug (B).

Anti-flooding protection

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.


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

* Only available in selected models.


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 After Sales Service)

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

Anti-condensation strip*



After installing the dishwasher, open the door and stick 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.

ECO wash cycle is the standard cycle to which the energy label data refers; this cycle can be used to wash crockery with a normal soil level and is the most efficient in terms of energy and water consumption for this type of crockery. To reduce consumption even further, only run the dishwasher when it is full.

plug. Replacements can be obtained directly from your


nearest Service Depot.

Removing the plug:

Ifyour appliance has a non-rewireable moulded plug and you should wish to remove it to re-route the mains cable through partitions, units etc., please esure that either:

- the plug is replaced by a fused 13 amp re-wireable plug bearing the BSI mark of approval


-the mains cable is wired directly into a 13 amp cable outlet, controlled by a switch, (in compliance with BS

Disposing of the plug:

Ensure that before disposing of the plug itself, you make the pins unusable so that it cannot be accidentally inserted into a socket.
