User instructions
TO SAVE ON ENERGY! ... AND PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT · · · · · Always try to run the dishwasher fully loaded. Do not wash the dishes in running water. Use the washing program that is most appropriate for each type of load. Do not carry out any preliminary rinsing. 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 the detergent directly on the dishes.

If the door has to be opened while washing is in progress, the program will be interrupted. The relative light will keep flashing and a beeper will signal that the cycle has not been completed. You must wait about 1 minute before closing the door to restart the program. When the door is closed the program will continue from where it was interrupted. This operation should only be carried out if strictly necessary, because it might cause problems in execution of the program. END OF CYCLE At the end of the washing cycle the dishwasher gives a short acustic signal and the program indicators nr 4 and 5 start blinking (the word "end" is displayed on the window). To switch off the dishwasher, open the door and press the ON/OFF button (1). 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.

========15========

Installation instructions
2. Installation and hook-up
Remove the polystyrene basket retainers. Position the appliance in the desired place of installation. The back or sides of the dishwasher may be placed up against walls or other furniture units. If the dishwasher is installed near a heat source, fit the special insulating panel to prevent overheating and malfunction of the appliance. To ensure stability, install integrated or built-under dishwashers only under continuous worktops, and screw them to the adjacent units. To facilitate the installation procedure, the intake and drain hoses can be positioned in any direction; make sure that the hoses are not kinked, crushed or pulled too tightly. Make sure to tighten the locking ring-nut once the pipes have been placed in the direction required. A hole at least 8 cm in diameter is required to allow the power supply cable and pipes to pass. Level the appliance on the floor using its adjustable feet. This operation is essential for ensuring correct operation of the dishwasher.

Installing a hob on top of a free-standing dishwasher is absolutely forbidden. Building-in a dishwasher underneath a ceramic hob is absolutely forbidden. A dishwasher can be built-in underneath a conventional hob provided there is no break in the kitchen worktop, and the dishwasher and hob are installed and secured correctly, so that no hazards are generated. For free-standing models only: if the appliance is not built-in and is therefore accessible on one side, the door hinge area must be covered for safety reasons (injury hazard). The covering fixtures are available as an accessory from specialist dealers or the After-Sales Service. Some models are equipped with only one adjustable foot at the rear, which can be adjusted by turning the screw on the lower front part of the appliance.

2.1 Water supply connection
Preventing the risk of clogging or damage: if the water pipe is new or has not been used for a long time, before connecting to the water supply check that the water is clear and free of impurities, to prevent damage to the appliance. The dishwasher must always be connected to the water system with new hoses; old or used hoses must never be reused.


========16========

Installation instructions
CONNECTING TO THE WATER SUPPLY Connect the intake hose to a cold water supply with ¾" gas thread, inserting the filter A supplied with the dishwasher. Take care to screw the hose firmly into place with your hands and then complete by tightening about ¼ of a turn with pliers. In dishwashers equipped with the ACQUASTOP device, the filters is already fitted inside the threaded ring. The dishwasher can also be connected to a hot water supply not exceeding 60°C. Supplying the appliance with hot water cuts down the washing time by approximately 20 minutes, but slightly reduces its effectiveness. Make the connection to the domestic hot water supply using the same procedure described for connecting to the cold water supply. DRAIN CONNECTION Insert the dishwasher's drain hose into a drain pipe having a diameter of at least 4 cm, or alternatively, place it inside the kitchen sink using the plastic support provided, taking care not to crush or excessively bend the hose. It is important to prevent the hose from coming loose and falling. For this purpose, the plastic support is equipped with a hole for tying it to the wall or water tap. The free end should be positioned at a height of between 30 and 100 cm, and should never be submerged in water. If a horizontal drain extension hose is used (for a maximum of 3 m) the drain hose can be placed at a maximum height of 85 cm from the ground.

2.2 Electrical connection
Plug the power cord into a suitable electrical outlet, according to the instructions given in chapter "1. Safety and operating instructions".




========17========

User instructions
3. Operating instructions
Once the dishwasher has been correctly installed, prepare for use as follows: · · · Adjust the water softening system; Add the regenerating salt; Add the rinse aid and detergent.

3.1 Using the water softening system
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 41-60°dF ­ 24-31°dH).

SALT

When using water of medium hardness, the regenerating salt container should be refilled after approximately 20 washing cycles. The salt container can hold approximately 1.7 Kg of salt in grains. Some models are equipped with an optical no-salt indicator. In these models, the cap of the salt container contains a green float which descends as the salt concentration in the water drops. When the green float can no longer be seen through the transparent cap, the container must be topped up with regenerating salt. The container is situated at the bottom of the dishwasher. 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. In the event of this occurring, the warranty will be invalidated. Only use regenerating salt specially formulated for domestic dishwashers. If using salt tablets, do not fill the container completely.

·


========18========

User instructions

· ·

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.

3.2 Using the rinse aid and detergent dispensers
The detergent and rinse aid dispensers are situated on the inner part of the door: the detergent dispenser is on the left, and the rinse aid dispenser is on the right.

With the exception of the SOAK program, before every washing cycle it is necessary to add the required amount of detergent to the detergent dispenser. The rinse aid, on the other hand, should only be added as required.




========19========

User instructions

ADDING THE RINSE AID The rinse aid helps the dishes dry faster and prevents the formation of scale deposits and staining; it is automatically added to the water during the final rinse cycle, from the container situated on the inner side of the door. · · · Open the door. Rotate the container cap anticlockwise by ¼ of a turn and remove it. Add the rinse aid until the container is full (approximately 140 cc). The optical level indicator on the side of the cap should be completely obscured. Refill the rinse aid when the optical level indicator becomes clear again, or when the rinse aid warning light illuminates. Replace the cover and turn it in a clockwise direction. Use a cloth to remove any spillage of rinse aid which might lead to the formation of excess foam.

· ·

ADJUSTING THE RINSE AID DISPENSER SETTING The dishwasher is factory set for medium water hardness. However it possible to change the setting by turning the dispenser's selector to the desired position: the amount of rinse aid dispensed is proportional to the selector position. The setting must be increased when the washed dishes appear dull or have circular staining. · · · · · To adjust the rinse aid setting, rotate the dispenser cap through a quarter turn in an anticlockwise direction and remove it. Then use a screwdriver to rotate the rinse aid selector to the desired position. Replace the cap, turning it clockwise. The amount of rinse aid must be increased if the washed dishes appear dull or feature circular stains. If, on the other hand, the dishes are sticky or have white streaks, it is necessary to reduce the rinse aid setting.




========20========

User instructions

ADDING THE DETERGENT To open the detergent dispenser cap, lightly press the button P. Add the detergent and close the cap carefully. During the washing cycle, the dispenser will be opened automatically.

·

When a INTENSIVE program is selected, in addition to the normal dose of detergent, it is necessary to add an additional amount inside compartment G or H. Use only detergents specially formulated for dishwashers. For optimal washing results it is important to use a good quality detergent. The detergent packs must be sealed and stored in a dry place to prevent the formation of lumps which may negatively affect washing results. Once opened the detergent packs should not be kept for too long, otherwise the detergent loses its effectiveness. Do not use detergents formulated for washing dishes by hand, because they produce a great deal of foam and may negatively affect the operation of the dishwasher. Add the correct amount of detergent. An insufficient amount of detergent will result in a partial removal of dirt from the dishes, whereas an excessive amount is wasteful and does not improve the washing results.

The market offers liquid and powder detergents with differing chemical compositions, which may contain phosphates, or be phosphate-free but contain natural enzymes. - Detergents containing phosphates are more effective against grease and starch at temperatures above 60°C. - Enzyme detergents, on the other hand, are also effective at lower temperatures (from 40 to 55°C) and are more easily biodegradable. With enzyme detergents it is possible to obtain at low temperatures comparable results to those which can only be achieved at 65°C using traditional detergents. For the safeguarding of the environment we recommend the use of phosphate- and chlorine free detergents. "3/1" Products If you wish to use detergents which already contain salt and rinse aid, check whether your dishwasher is fitted with the "3/1 option button" on the "Controls description" page and then refer to the section which explains how to use this function. If the button is not provided, we recommend the use of conventional products (separate detergent, salt and rinse aid), because with conventional washing cycles "3/1" products might create problems such as a white deposit, poor drying results and residues left on dishes.

·

The introduction of detergent into the rinse aid dispenser, even in liquid form, will damage the dishwasher.

3.3 General warnings and recommendations

Before using the dishwasher for the first time, it is advisable to read the following recommendations concerning dish types to be washed and their loading. There are generally no constraints on the washing of domestic dishes, but in certain cases it is necessary to take their characteristics into account. Before loading the dishes into the baskets it is necessary to: · remove coarse food remains: e.g. bones, fish-bones, etc. which may clog the filter or damage the wash pump. · soak any pots or pans with burnt-on food remains on the bottom to facilitate removal, then load them into the LOWER BASKET. If a small quantity of dishes has to be washed, use the "½ load wash" option (certain models only); this saves electricity and water. Remember to load the upper basket only; the lower basket must be left empty. There is no need to pre-wash the dishes under running water before loading them into the baskets since this only wastes water. Correct loading of the dishes helps ensure optimal washing results. WARNING! · · · · · Make sure that the dishes are securely in place so that they cannot tip over or obstruct the rotation of the spray arms during the washing cycle. Do not place very small objects in the baskets as these could fall and obstruct the spray arms or the wash pump. Containers such as cups, bowls, glasses and pots should always be loaded with the opening facing downwards and with any cavities at an angle, to allow the water to drain out. Do not stack dishes or place them in such a way that they cover one other. Do not place glasses too close together because they may knock against each other and break, or there might be staining at the point where they touch.

MAKE SURE that the items being washed are dishwasher-safe.




========23========

User instructions

Items which are not dishwasher-safe: · · · · · · · Wooden dishes, pots or pans: these may be damaged by the high washing temperatures. Handcrafted items: these are rarely suitable for washing in a dishwasher. The relatively high water temperatures and the detergents used may damage them. Plastic dishes: heat resistant plastic dishes must be washed in the upper basket. Dishes and objects in copper, tin, zinc or brass: these tend to stain. Aluminium dishes: items made from anodised aluminium may lose their colour. Silverware: silver items may stain. Glass and crystal: in general, glass and crystal objects can be washed in the dishwasher. However, certain types of glass and crystal may become dull and lose their clearness after many washings. Therefore, for these items we recommend using the least aggressive program available. Decorated items: the decorated objects available on the market are generally able to withstand washing in the dishwasher, although the colours may fade after a great many washes. If in doubt as to the fastness of the colours, it is advisable to wash just a few items at a time for approximately one month.

CUTLERY BASKET The cutlery should be arranged in an orderly manner inside the basket, with the handles pointing downwards. Take care during loading to avoid injury from the knife blades. The basket is suitable for all types of cutlery, except those long enough to interfere with the upper spray arm. Ladles, wooden spoons and cooking knives can be placed in the upper basket, making sure that the knife blades do not protrude from the basket. The dishwasher is complete with two cutlery baskets, which means that one of them can be removed, freeing space in the bottom basket, if there is not much cutlery to be washed, or if a ½ load program is being used (on models with this function). The basket features an exclusive system of independent sliding tipup supports, offering a choice of possible combinations to allow optimum use of the space available.

UPPER BASKET It is recommended to load the upper basket with small- or medium-sized items such as glasses, small plates, tea or coffee cups, shallow bowls and light objects made from heat resistant plastic. If the upper basket is used in the lowermost position, it can also be loaded with serving dishes, provided they are only slightly soiled. To make full use of the space available, the top basket has two plastic grids that can be lifted to make room for tall glasses such as stem glasses.

The top basket is fitted (on the left) with two plastic racks which can be raised to make room for tall glasses, such as stem glasses. On the right there are two cutlery racks designed to take knives and teaspoons; when not in use, they can be left vertical, attached to the basket. To use the space designed for teaspoons, remove the insert as shown in the illustrations.

4.1 General warnings and recommendations
Avoid the use of acidic or abrasive detergents. Clean the outer surfaces and door-lining of the dishwasher regularly using a soft cloth moistened with water or with a normal detergent suitable for painted surfaces. Clean the door gaskets with a damp sponge. Periodically (once or twice a year) it is advisable to clean the tank and gaskets, using a soft cloth and water to remove any deposits. CLEANING THE WATER INTAKE FILTER The water intake filter A located at the outlet of the water supply tap needs to be cleaned periodically. After having closed the water supply tap, unscrew the end of the water intake hose, remove the filter A and clean it delicately under running water. Reassemble filter A in its seat and carefully screw the water intake hose back into position. CLEANING THE SPRAY ARMS The spray arms can be easily removed for periodic cleaning of the nozzles, to prevent possible clogging. Wash them under running water and carefully replace them in their seats, checking that their rotary movement is in no way impeded. · · · To remove the upper spray arm, unscrew locking ring R. To remove the lower spray arm, simply lift it up, pulling by the central part. To remove the orbital spray arm assembly, take hold of the longer arm and pull the orbital unit upward.

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.).
