FIRST TIME USE SALT, RINSE AID, AND DETERGENT
ADVICE REGARDING THE FIRST TIME USE
After installation, remove the stoppers from the racks and the retaining elastic elements from the upper rack.
FILLING THE SALT RESERVOIR
The use of salt prevents the formation of LIMESCALE on the dishes and on the machine’s functional components.
*DISHWASHER REGENERATING SALT REQUIRED.* *DO NOT USE TABLE SALT*
- It is important that the salt reservoir be never empty.
- It is important to set the water hardness. The salt reservoir is located in the lower part of the dishwasher (see PROGRAMS DESCRIPTION) and should be filled when the SALT REFILL indicator light in the control panel is lit.
- Remove the lower rack and unscrew the reservoir cap (anticlockwise).
- Only the first time you do this: fill the salt reservoir with water.
- Position the funnel (see figure) and fill the salt reservoir right up to its edge (approximately 1 kg); it is not unusual for a little water to leak out.
- Remove the funnel and wipe any salt residue away from the opening.
Make sure the cap is screwed on tightly so that no detergent can get into the container during the wash program (this could damage the water softener beyond repair).
Whenever you need to add salt, we recommend carrying out the procedure before the washing cycle is started.
SETTING THE WATER HARDNESS
To allow the water softener to work in a perfect way, it is essential that the water hardness setting is based on the actual water hardness in your house. This information can be obtained from your local water supplier. The factory setting is for average (3) water hardness.
- Switch on the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF button.
- Switch off the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF button.
- Hold down button P for 5 seconds, until you hear a beep.
- Switch on the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF button.
- The program indicator light of the current set level flashes.
- Press button P to select the desired hardness level (see WATER HARDNESS TABLE).
|Water Hardness Table|
|Level||°dH German degrees||0fH French degrees|
|1||Soft||0 – 6||0-10|
|2||Medium||7 – 11||11 – 20|
|3||Average||12 – 17||21 – 30|
|4||Hard||17 – 34||31 – 60|
|5||Very hard||35 – 50||61 – 90|
Switch off the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF button.
The setting is complete!
As soon as this procedure is complete, run a program without loading.
Only use salt that has been specifically designed for dishwashers.
After the salt has been poured into the machine, the SALT REFILL indicator light switches off.
If the salt container is not filled, the water softener and the heating element may be damaged as a result.
FILLING THE RINSE AID DISPENSER
Rinse aid makes dish DRYING easier. The rinse aid dispenser A should be filled when the RINSE AID REFILL indicator light in the control panel is lit.
- Open dispenser B by pressing and pulling up the tab on the lid.
- Carefully introduce the rinse aid as far as the maximum (110 ml) reference notch of the filling space
– avoid spilling it. If this happens,clean the spill immediately with a dry cloth.
- Press the lid down until you hear a click to close it.
NEVER pour the rinse aid directly into the tub.
ADJUSTING THE DOSAGE OF RINSE AID
If you are not completely satisfied with the drying results, you can adjust the quantity of rinse aid used.
- Switch the dishwasher on using the ON/OFF button.
- Switch it off using the ON/OFF button.
- Press button P three times – a beep will be heard.
- Switch it on using the ON/OFF button.
- The program indicator light of the current set level flashes.
- Press button P to select the level of rinse aid quantity to be supplied.
- Switch it off using the ON/OFF button Setting is complete!
- If the rinse aid level is set to ZERO (ECO), no-rinse aid will be supplied.
- The LOW RINSE AID indicator light will not be lit if you run out of rinse aid.
- A maximum of 4 levels can be set according to the dishwasher model. The factory setting is for a medium level.
- If you see bluish streaks on the dishes, set a low number (1-2).
- If there are drops of water or limescale marks on the dishes, set a high number (3-4).
FILLING THE DETERGENT DISPENSER
To open the detergent dispenser use the opening device A. Introduce the detergent into the dry dispenser B only. Place the amount of B detergent for pre-washing directly inside the tub.
- When measuring out the detergent refer to the mentioned earlier information to add the proper quantity. Inside the dispenser B there are indications to help the detergent dosing.
- Remove detergent residues from the edges of the dispenser and close the cover until it clicks.
- Close the lid of the detergent dispenser by pulling it up until the closing device is secured in place. The detergent dispenser automatically opens up at the right time according to the program.
|Duration of wash
The Eco 50° wash cycle adheres to the regulation standard AS/NZS 2007. Although it has a longer duration than other wash cycles it uses less energy and is less harmful to the environment.
*) Not all options can be used simultaneously.
**) The duration of the program shown on the display or in the booklet is an estimate calculated on standard conditions. The actual time may vary depending on many factors such as temperature and pressure of the incoming water, room temperature, amount of detergent, quantity, and type of load, load balancing, additional selected options and sensor calibration. The sensor calibration can increase program duration up to 20 min. Standby consumption: Left-on mode consumption: 5 W – Off mode consumption: 0.5 W
WARNING: 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.
Instructions on wash cycle selection.
Normally soiled crockery. The standard program, the most efficient in terms of its combined energy and water consumption.
Program recommended for heavily soiled crockery, especially suitable for pans and saucepans (not to be used for delicate items).
Everyday cycle, ensures optimal cleaning performance in a shorter time.
Program to be used for lightly-soiled dishes with no dried food residues. (Ideal for 2 place settings).
Crockery to be washed later. No detergent to be used with this program.
Ideal for washing a half load of lightly or normally soiled crockery.
Notes: Optimum performance levels when using the “Express”” program can be achieved by observing the maximum amounts of specified place settings.
To reduce consumption even further, only run the dishwasher when it is full.
- CHECK WATER CONNECTION Check that the dishwasher is connected to the water supply and that the top is open.
- SWITCH ON THE DISHWASHER Open the door and press the ON/OFF button.
- LOAD THE RACKS (see LOADING THE RACKS)
- FILLING THE DETERGENT DISPENSER (see PROGRAMS TABLE).
- CHOOSE THE PROGRAM AND CUSTOMISE THE CYCLE Select the most appropriate program in accordance with the type of crockery and its soiling level (see PROGRAMS DESCRIPTION) by pressing the P button. Select the desired options (see OPTIONS AND FUNCTIONS).
- START Start the wash cycle by closing the door. When the program starts you hear a beep.
- END OF WASH CYCLE The end of the wash cycle is indicated by beeps and by the flashing of the indicator light of the selected program. Open the door and switch off the appliance by pressing the ON/OFF button. Wait for a few minutes before removing the crockery – to avoid burns. Unload the racks, beginning with the lower one
The machine will switch off automatically during certain extended periods of inactivity, in order to minimize electricity consumption. If the crockery is only lightly soiled or if it has been rinsed with water before being placed in the dishwasher, reduce the amount of detergent used accordingly.
MODIFYING A RUNNING PROGRAM
If a wrong program was selected, it is possible to change it, provided that it has only just begun: open the door (beware of HOT steam!), press and hold the ON/OFF button, the machine will switch off. Switch the machine back on using the ON/OFF button and select the new wash cycle and any desired options; start the cycle by closing the door.
ADDING EXTRA CROCKERY
Without switching off the machine, open the door (beware of HOT steam!) and place the crockery inside the dishwasher. Close the door and the cycle will begin from the point at which it was interrupted.
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 closed or the electricity supply is restored.
For more information about the functions, you can request or download from the WEB a Use & Care Guide by following the instructions on the last page.
ADVICE AND TIPS
Before loading the baskets, remove all food residues from the crockery and empty the glasses. You do not need to rinse beforehand under running water. Arrange the crockery so that it is held in place firmly and does not tip over; and arrange the containers with the openings facing downwards and the concave/convex parts placed obliquely, thus allowing the water to reach every surface and flow freely.
Warning: lids, handles, trays, and frying pans do not prevent the sprayer arms from rotating. Place any small items in the cutlery basket. Very soiled dishes and pans should be placed in the lower basket because in this sector the water sprays are stronger and allow a higher washing performance. After loading the appliance, make sure that the sprayer arms can rotate freely.
To avoid odor and sediment which can be accumulated in the dishwasher please run a high-temperature program at least once a month. Use a teaspoon of detergent and run it without loading to clean your appliance.
- Wooden crockery and cutlery.
- Delicately decorated glasses, artistic handicrafts,s, and antique crockery. Their decorations are not resistant.
- Parts in synthetic material which do not withstand high temperatures.
- Copper and tin crockery.
- Crockery soiled with ash, wax, lubricating grease or ink. The colors of glass decorations and aluminum/silver pieces can change and fade during the washing process. Some types of glass (e.g. crystal objects) can become opaque after a number of wash cycles too.
DAMAGE TO GLASS AND CROCKERY
- Only use glasses and porcelain guaranteed by the manufacturer as dishwasher safe.
- Use a delicate detergent suitable for crockery
- Collect glasses and cutlery from the dishwasher as soon as the wash cycle is over.
LOADING THE RACKS
Load delicate and light dishes: glasses, cups, saucers, low salad bowls.
ADJUSTING THE HEIGHT OF THE UPPER RACK
The height of the upper rack can be adjusted: high position to place bulky crockery in the lower basket and low position to make the most of the tip-up supports by creating more space upwards and avoiding collision with the items loaded into the lower rack.
The upper rack is equipped with an Upper Rack height adjuster (see figure), without pressing the levers, lift it up by simply holding the rack sides, as soon as the rack is stable in its upper position. To restore to the lower position, press the lever A at the sides of the rack and move the basket downwards.
We strongly recommend that you do not adjust the height of the rack when it is loaded. NEVER raise or lower the basket on one side only.
FOLDABLE FLAPS WITH ADJUSTABLE POSITION
The side foldable flaps can be positioned at three different heights to optimize the arrangement of crockery inside the rack. Wine glasses can be placed safely in the foldable flaps by inserting the stem of each glass into the corresponding slots. For optimum drying, results incline the foldable flaps more. To change the inclination, pull up the foldable flap, slide it slightly and position it as you wish.
For pots, lids, plates, salad bowls, cutlery etc. Large plates and lids should ideally be placed at the sides to avoid interferences with the spray arm. The lower rack has tip-up supports which can be used in a vertical position when arranging plates or in a horizontal position (lower) to load pans and salad bowls easily.
The basket is equipped with top grilles for improved cutlery arrangement. The cutlery basket should be positioned only at the front of the lower rack.
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 tip-up compartments on the upper rack.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
CLEANING THE FILTER ASSEMBLY
Regularly clean the filter assembly so that the filters do not clog and that the wastewater flows away correctly. The filter assembly consists of three filters that remove food residues from the washing water and then recirculate the water: to obtain the best washing results, you need to keep them clean. The dishwasher must 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-metallic brush and following the instructions below:
- Turn the cylindrical filter A in an anti-clockwise direction and pull it out (Fig 1).
- Remove cup filter B by exerting slight pressure on the side flaps (Fig 2).
- Slide-out the stainless-steel plate filter C (Fig 3).
- Inspect the trap and remove any food residues. NEVER REMOVE the wash-cycle pump protection (black detail) (Fig 4).
After cleaning the filters, re-place the filter assembly and fix it in position correctly; this is essential for maintaining the efficient operation of the dishwasher.
CLEANING THE SPRAY ARMS
On occasions, food residue may become encrusted onto the spray arms and block the holes used to spray the water. It is therefore recommended that you check the arms from time to time and clean them with a small non-metallic brush.
To remove the upper spray arm, turn the plastic locking ring in an anticlockwise direction. The upper spray arm should be replaced so that the side with the greater number of holes is facing upwards.
The lower spray arm may be removed by pulling it upwards.
CLEANING THE WATER INLET HOSE
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.
