Thank you for choosing one of our products. You are advised to read this manual carefully; it contains all the information you need about the right conditions for the proper, safe use of your dishwasher. The individual sections are laid out to provide you with a step-by-step guide to all your appliance's functions; the texts are easy to understand and are complete with detailed illustrations. [. . . ] “CHILD LOCK” OPTION By pressing the indicated buttons (3) at the same time, the controls are locked, which is confirmed by the flashing ON/OFF (1) warning light. This option stays active (and the warning light keeps flashing) until the buttons (3) are pressed again.
TO SAVE ON ENERGY!… AND PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT Always try to run the dishwasher fully loaded. Use the washing program that is most appropriate for each type of load. If available, connect the dishwasher to a hot water supply up to 60°C.
TO CUT DOWN ON DETERGENT CONSUMPTION!… AND PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT The phosphates contained in dishwasher detergents are harmful to the environment. To avoid using excessive amounts of detergent and to save on electricity, observe the following: separate the more delicate items from dishes that are more resistant to aggressive detergents and high temperatures; do not pour detergent directly on the dishes.
ENERGY MANAGEMENT At the end of the program, afterwards 5 minutes, the washing machine switches off automatically in order to reduce standby power consumption. In order to switch it on again, it is necessary to press the ON/OFF button. REMOVING THE DISHES At the end of the washing program, wait at least 20 minutes before removing the dishes, to allow them to cool down. To prevent any water droplets on the upper basket from falling on the dishes in the lower basket, it is advisable to unload the lower basket first, and then the upper basket.
4. Operating instructions
Once the dishwasher has been correctly installed, prepare for use as follows: Adjust the water softening system (on some models only); Add the regenerating salt (on some models only); Add the rinse aid and detergent.
Using the water softening system (on some models only)
The amount of scale contained in the water (water hardness index) can cause whitish staining on the dry dishes, which tend to become dull over time. The dishwasher is equipped with an automatic softening system which uses a special regenerating salt to reduce the hardness of the water. The dishwasher is factory set for water hardness level 3 (average hardness).
When using water of medium hardness, the regenerating salt container should be refilled after approximately 20 washing cycles. After removing the lower basket, unscrew the salt container cap by turning it anticlockwise and pour in the salt using the funnel supplied with the dishwasher. Before replacing the cap, remove any salt residues from around the opening. When using the dishwasher for the first time, in addition to the salt it is also necessary to add one litre of water to the container. Each time the salt container is refilled, make sure that the cap is securely closed. The mixture of water and detergent must never penetrate the salt container, as this would compromise the operation of the regeneration system. Only use regenerating salt specially formulated for domestic dishwashers. If using salt tablets, do not fill the container completely.
Do not use table salt as it contains insoluble substances which, over time, may damage the water softening system. When necessary, refill the regenerating salt container before starting the washing program. In this way, the excess saline solution will be immediately removed by the water; the prolonged presence of salt water inside the tank may lead to corrosion.
Be careful not to confuse the salt and detergent packages; adding detergent to the salt container will damage the water softening system.
ADJUSTING THE WATER SOFTENING SYSTEM The dishwasher is equipped with a device which allows the softener setting to be varied to suit the hardness of the mains water. [. . . ] Reconnect the water intake hose and open the tap again.
TROUBLESHOOTING MINOR PROBLEMS In some cases it is possible to remedy minor problems by referring to the following instructions: If the program fails to start, check that: the dishwasher is connected to the electrical power supply; there is no power failure; the water tap is open; the dishwasher door is properly closed.
If water remains inside the dishwasher, check that: the drain hose is not kinked; the drain siphon is not obstructed; the dishwasher filters are not clogged.
If the dishes are not being cleaned properly, check that: the correct amount of detergent has been added; there is regenerating salt inside the special container; the dishes are being loaded correctly; the selected program is suitable for the dish types and their degree of soiling; all the filters are clean and positioned correctly; the spray arm nozzles are not obstructed; there is no object obstructing the rotation of the spray arms.
If the dishes fail to dry or remain dull, check that: there is rinse aid inside the special container; the rinse aid dispenser setting is correct; the detergent used is of good quality and has not lost its effectiveness (for example, through incorrect storage, with the box left open).
If the dishes show signs of streaking, staining, etc. , check that: the rinse aid dispenser setting is not too high.
If there are visible traces of rust inside the tank: the tank is made of steel, and therefore any rust marks are due to external elements (fragments of rust from the water pipes, pots, cutlery, etc. ). Special products are commercially available to remove such marks; check that the amount of detergent being used is correct. check that the cap of the salt container is securely closed, and that the water softening setting is correct.
If after following the above troubleshooting instructions the problem persists, call the nearest After-Sales Centre. WARNING: any operations performed on the appliance by unauthorised persons are not covered by the warranty and shall be paid for by the user.
