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. Before putting the dishwasher into its definitive position, turn on the water tap and check that there are no leaks from the tap connection, the dishwasher connection or the hose. Level the appliance on the floor using its adjustable feet. This operation is essential for ensuring correct operation of the dishwasher. 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. Building-in a dishwasher underneath a hob is absolutely forbidden. Moreover, dishwashers may not be installed directly touching appliances which are not conventional built-in kitchen appliances (e.g. fireplaces, stoves, etc.). When installing the dishwasher in a compartment next to one or more other appliances, it is essential to comply with all the recommendations provided by the appliance’s manufacturer (minimum distances, installation procedures, etc.). For free-standing models only: - Installing a hob on top of a free-standing dishwasher is absolutely forbidden. - 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. - To build in the dishwasher, the special kit must be purchased from authorised dealers or the After-Sales Service. 5 Installation instructions 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. 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. 6 Installation instructions 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. Class of protection against moisture: IPX0 7 Installation instructions 2.2 Electrical connection and precautions CHECK THAT THE VOLTAGE AND THE FREQUENCY OF THE MAINS MATCH THE RATINGS ON THE NAME PLATE OF THE APPLIANCE POSITIONED ON THE INNER EDGE OF THE DOOR. THE PLUG ON THE SUPPLY CORD AND THE CORRESPONDING SOCKET OUTLET MUST BE OF THE SAME TYPE AND MEET THE REGULATIONS IN FORCE. THE PLUG MUST BE ACCESSIBLE AFTER INSTALLATION. NEVER DISCONNECT THE PLUG BY PULLING ON THE POWER SUPPLY LEAD. AFTER CHANGING THE SUPPLY CORD, MAKE SURE THAT THE BRACKET WHICH SECURES THE CORD IS FIXED SECURELY IN PLACE. DO NOT USE ADAPTORS OR SHUNT CONNECTIONS IN ORDER TO AVOID THE POSSIBILITY OF OVERHEATING OR BURNING. In the event of damage to the supply cord, have it replaced by the manufacturer or an Authorized Technical Service Centre in order to avoid any risk. Some components are live even with the ON/OFF button in the OFF position. Before maintenance work on the appliance, remove the plug or turn off the power supply at the wall switch. IF THE APPLIANCE IS PROVIDED WITH A PLUGLESS SUPPLY CORD: AN OMNIPOLAR CIRCUIT BREAKER IN OVERVOLTAGE PROTECTION CLASS III MUST BE INSTALLED IN AN EASILY ACCESSIBLE POSITION ON THE POWER SUPPLY LINE. THE CONNECTION TO THE MAINS MUST BE CARRIED OUT BY A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN IN ACCORDANCE TO THE SCHEME SHOWN BELOW AND THE REGULATIONS IN FORCE.

Before starting a washing program make sure that: • The water supply tap is open. • The correct amount of detergent has been added to the dispenser. • The baskets have been correctly loaded. • The spray arms are able to rotate freely and without obstruction. • The dishwasher door is securely closed. LIGHTING Pressing the ON/OFF button will start the dishwasher and will lit up the dishwasher pilot light. After approximately 3 second from this operation the DISPLAY will be turned on with a visualization that will depend upon the state of the dishwasher. PROGRAMMING All the programming operations are possible only with closed door. With open door, on the DISPLAY will appear - - : - -. SELECTION PROGRAM The program selection is possible through the relative buttons. By pressing the relative button of desired program (see table) it will lid up the relative pilot light to confirm that the operation did occurred on the DISPLAY will appear a program duration forecasting (“”). 14 User instructions START PROGRAM At this point, in order to start the machine, it is only enough to press the START/PAUSE (6) for some seconds until the symbol START/PAUSE (D) start to flash and confirmation “beep” is heard. From this moment the cycle duration on the DISPLAY (9) starts to decrease. This phase, that updates itself during the cycle, is “indicative” since it is influenced by the washing conditions such as dishwasher type and quantity, entry temperature etc. For this reason it is normal to see the updating during a program (increment and decrease of minutes) specially in the passage from one phase to the other (for example, from washing to rinse). END PROGRAM The end of the program is indicated by a short signal acoustic and from the “End” visual notification on DISPLAY. By pressing one of the buttons, the “End” visual signal will vanish from the display and the dishwasher is ready to continue a new cycle. INTERRUPTING A PROGRAM In order to interrupt a running program it is necessary: • • to press the START/PAUSE for some seconds until when the symbol START/PAUSE remains lit on the display (confirmation beep). At this point,it is possible to start the cycle again, otherwise: TO CHANGE A PROGRAM To change the running program it is necessary: • • to interrupt the running program (see “INTERRUPTING A PROGRAM”); select the new program; • to press again the START/PAUSE button program. to make start the new 15 User instructions STOPPING A PROGRAM To cancel a program which is running: • Interrupt the program (see "INTERRUPTING A PROGRAM") • Press the START/PAUSE button and hold it down; the display will show "P0" and the dishwasher will immediately switch to the end of the cycle and drain the tank (during this process, the "START/PAUSE symbol will flash). When the drain procedure ends, the end of cycle "End" message appears on the display. In case that the door is opened during the operation, to the next door closing it is going to be necessary to start the program as shown in paragraph “STARTING THE PROGRAM”. The program will resume from the point in which it was interrupted. In case that the tub temperature is higher than 50°C the program will start about 60 seconds later. 16 User instructions PROGRAM DELAY The PROGRAM DELAY button can be pressed to delay the start of the washing program by from 1 to 12/24 hours depending on the model. This option allows the dishwasher to be operated at the time of day of the user's choice. The first time the PROGRAM DELAY button is pressed the option light comes on and 1:h appears on the DISPLAY. The button can then be pressed again, to set the delay required (2:h, 3:h, … etc.). If no button is pressed for a few seconds, the DISPLAY shows the time left (time remaining) to the end of the selected program (e.g. 5:40, duration of the washing cycle + program delay). When the user confirms the program start (read the relative section) a prewash will be carried out, after which the PROGRAM DELAY set will begin, and the time remaining on the DISPLAY will gradually be counted down. At the end of the delay set, the option light goes out and the washing cycle starts. N.B.: It is not possible to select the PROGRAM DELAY option once the cycle has begun. Chosen the delay, proceed with the program start, press the button START/PAUSE for same seconds until the START/PAUSE symbol start to flash. The machine will perform a dish pre-washing, and when finish, the “delay program” will enter in function as it was first set. In case you want to put to zero the “delay program” within the running program it is necessary: • to press the START/PAUSE button for some seconds until the START/PAUSE (D) symbol remain lid up on the display; • to press the DELAY PROGRAM more times until the reset of the delay program (START/PAUSE symbol shut off); • to press the START/PAUSE button to make start the program. N.B.: It is not possible to select the “delay program” when the program have already began. 17 User instructions OPTIONS (available in all programs except the soak program) The options are controlled by the OPTION SELECTION button . Press the button to access the procedure, confirmed by flashing of one of the OPTIONS lights (E). N.B.: The PROGRAM DELAY light only comes on when the specific PROGRAM DELAY button is pressed. Press the SELECT OPTIONS button again to display the next option. To confirm an option, press the CONFIRM OPTION button (the light stops flashing and remains on). This operation can be carried out for one or all of the options available. To deactivate an option which has already been confirmed, press the OPTION SELECTION button until the OPTION LIGHT required flashes, and press the CONFIRM OPTION button . The light stops flashing and goes out. All options except "Flexi Tabs" are disabled at the end of the wash cycle. QUICK TIME PROGRAMS Select this option together with any washing program (except the soak program) to SHORTEN the cycle. To activate this option, press button (light comes on) after selecting the program required. The option is automatically deactivated at the end of the program. 18 User instructions ENERSAVE This option can be selected with the wash programme of choice to further reduce energy consumption. Drying is aided by a special device that automatically releases the door, which opens slowly and smoothly by a few centimetres. This ensures perfect drying and greater control of rinsing temperatures, which can be kept at lower levels for significant energy saving. Once the door has opened, the end of the wash cycle is indicated by a short beep. Enersave is activated automatically every time a wash cycle is selected (except for programs that do not include the final drying phase; see programs table) and can be disabled before the program is started. Flexi Tabs, once selected, remains enabled until intentionally disabled. When the function is activated, opening of the door must not be impeded in any way; do not leave anything in the space in front of the door necessary to allow it to open. Do not re-close the door during automatic opening as this would damage the mechanism. Wait for the pushers to retract before re-closing the door. "Flexi Tabs" (on some models only) The option is optimised for use of detergents which are complete with salt and rinse aid, known on the market as, "triple action", etc. With this option activated, any salt and rinse aid If you wish to use detergents which already contain salt and rinse aid already in the dishwasher will not be used. With short programs, because there is less time for them to dissolve, tablets may fail to wash effectively and undissolved residues may be left. Powder detergents are more suitable for these programs. - N.B.: even with the "Flexi Tabs" option selected, the regenerating salt/rinse aid lights will still stay on if their containers are empty. IMPORTANT: when no longer required, the option must be disabled (the light goes out). 19 User instructions If the water hardness has been set on a value above H3, and the “Flexi Tabs” option is activated, the relative light flashes, warning of a setting error. This products are not suitable for use with very "hard" water; this does not prevent the use of the option, but the washing results might not be of the best. SPREAD HALF LOAD Suitable when there are not many dishes to be washed, it saves energy and reduces the program duration. Place dishes in both baskets then load the detergent dispenser than less than the normal amount for a full load. 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. ENERGY MANAGEMENT After 5 minutes of waiting (washing cycle completed, stopped or set but not started) the dishwasher switches to a standby state to reduce energy consumption. In this state, the dishwasher indicator panel (lights or display depending on model) functions more slowly (switch-on once every 5 seconds). 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. 20 User instructions 4. Operating instructions Once the dishwasher has been correctly installed, prepare for use as follows: • • • 4.1 Adjust the water softening system; (present only on some models) Add the regenerating salt; (only on some models) Add the rinse aid and detergent. Using the water softening system (only on some models) 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). 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. 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. 21 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. ADDITIONAL FUNCTIONS (Customizing the consumer parameters) (available in all programs except the soak program) The electronic control system allows personalizing the machine use directly through a programming procedure not directly accessible that allows: regulate water hardness level. To access the programming environment, the appliance must be turned on with the door open. Then proceed as follows: • • press the PROGRAM DELAY button until the H symbol appears on the display, followed by the number currently set (e.g. H3) press the PROGRAM DELAY button the number of times needed to select the right setting level for the hardness of the water (H0, H1, H2, H3, H4, H6); N.B.: after few seconds the appliance exits the parameter setting menu automatically. 22 User instructions WATER HARDNESS TABLE WATER HARDNESS German degrees (°dH) French Degrees (°dF) SETTING H0 0-6 0 - 11 NO SALT 7 - 10 12 - 18 H1 11 - 15 19 - 27 H2 16 - 21 28 - 37 H3 22 - 28 38 - 50 H4 29 - 35 51 - 62 H5 36 - 50 63 - 90 H6 Contact your local water board for information on the hardness of your water supply. After adjustment or display of the current setting, simply do not touch the button for a few seconds; the dishwasher will automatically return to standard mode, quitting the adjustment mode. 4.2 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. 23 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. To add rinse aid: • 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. • • • • • 24 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. 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 program with hot prewash is selected (see program table), extra detergent must be placed in the cavity G/H (depending on models). 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. 25 User instructions The introduction of detergent into the rinse aid dispenser, even in liquid form, will damage the dishwasher. 4.3 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. 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. 26 User instructions 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. 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. 27 User instructions 4.4 Using the baskets The dishwasher has a capacity of 15 place-settings, including serving dishes. LOWER BASKET The lower basket receives the full force of the lower spray arm, and should therefore be used for the “toughest” items with a heavier degree of soiling. All types and combinations of loads are permitted, provided that the dishes, pots and pans are arranged with all the soiled surfaces exposed to the water jets coming from the bottom. Depending on the models, the basket may be equipped with some or all of the following accessories: Plate racks, which can be laid flat when not in use (e.g. to accommodate pans, bowls, etc.). To stow the racks flat, pull them upward and turn them towards the inside of the basket. Anti-drip inserts which improve the drying of dishes. They may be supplied fitted on the basket or in the accessories bag; in this case, to use them, simply fit them into place as shown. 28 User instructions Supports for cups and long objects (ladles, spoons, etc.), in the rear; can be tipped to the vertical position when not in use. Glass holder. Support for longstem glasses. When lifted out of the stowed position (0) it snaps into three different positions (1-2-3). 2-position fold-down supports (1-2). In position 1 (vertical) they can be used to take plates, while in position 2 (slanted) they provide support for long-stem glasses which will be held in place by the glass holder. Adjustment: raise point P as shown until the support turns into position 2. 29 User instructions To lie completely flat, lift the end and turn it towards you so that the retainer F rotates into place above point S. LOADING THE LOWER BASKET Carefully load flat plates, soup plates, dessert and serving dishes, positioning them vertically. Pots, pans and their covers must be loaded upside down. When loading soup plates and dessert bowls, be sure to leave a gap between them. Loading examples: 30 User instructions FLEXI DUO TOP RACK (on some models only) This comprises two independent sliding, pull-out tray racks for easier loading/unloading of cutlery. Various loading systems and configurations are possible. For example, tea cups can be loaded with the right-hand rack set in the low position, while the left-hand rack or both can be removed to allow large dishes to be put in the top basket 31 User instructions CUTLERY BASKET The basket has removable top grids into which items of cutlery should be inserted to keep them properly spaced and allow water to pass between them effectively. The top grids and central lid are in the bag of accessories. The central lid functions as a lid only. The top grids can be detached and used separately. 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 cutlery basket slides across the dishwasher and can be placed in any position to allow optimal use of the space in the bottom basket. 32 User instructions 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. LOADING THE UPPER BASKET Load plates facing forward; cups, bowls etc. must always be facing downwards. The left side of the basket can be loaded with cups and glasses on two levels. In the centre section, plates and saucers can be loaded vertically into the supports provided. Loading examples: 33 User instructions Depending on the models, the basket may be equipped with some or all of the following accessories: Supports for cups or long objects (ladles, spoons…), on the left; can be tipped to the vertical position when not in use. Long-stemmed glass holder, on the left; to use, simply lift and fix onto the hooks provided. Cutlery racks, on the right, designed for knives and teaspoons; for teaspoons, pull out the sliding support. The racks can be tipped to the vertical position when not in use. Fixed or movable racks in the middle. The movable supports can be fixed vertical, resting on the bottom of the basket when not in use, or set in the intermediate position, as required. 34 User instructions ADJUSTING THE UPPER BASKET The height of the top basket can be adjusted to allow large dishes or pans to be placed in the bottom basket. The adjustment procedure may be type A or B, depending on the dishwasher model purchased. Version A: pull-out with adjustment in two positions. • Pull out both the basket guides. • Remove the stops, first releasing them as shown in the diagram. • Pull out the basket. • Fit the upper or lower pair of wheels into the guide, depending on the setting required; • Return the stops to their original position. The left hand and right hand sides of the basket must always be set at the same height. Version B: with adjustment in three positions on both sides. The sides of the basket must always be set at the same height. • Raise the basket by pulling on the top edge (1), to the first or second catch depending on the height required. • To lower the basket, first release it by pulling the release lever (2). Adjustment is also possible with the basket loaded, but in this case when lowering the basket it should be held steady with one hand to avoid knocking the dishes. 35 User instructions 5. Cleaning and maintenance Before carrying out any work, always unplug the appliance from the electrical supply or switch off the all-pole disconnection device. 5.1 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. Wash the arms under a jet of running water and return them carefully to their seat. After reassembly, check that the spray arms turn freely. Otherwise, check that they have been installed correctly. ORBITAL 36 User instructions CLEANING THE FILTER UNIT • • • • It is advisable to periodically inspect the centre filter C and, if necessary, to clean it. To remove the filter, grip the tabs, turn them anticlockwise and lift upwards; push the centre filter D from the underside to remove it from the micro-filter: separate the two parts which make up the plastic filter by pressing the body of the filter in the zone shown by the arrows; remove the centre filter by lifting it upwards. GENERAL WARNINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CORRECT MAINTENANCE: • The filters should be cleaned under running water using a stiff brush. • When removing the filter, take care that there are no food residues on it. If any residues fall into the washing pit they might block hydraulic components, or foul the spray arm nozzles. • It is essential to thoroughly clean the filters according to the above instructions: the dishwasher cannot function if the filters are clogged. • Carefully replace the filters in their seats, to avoid damaging the wash pump. PROLONGED DISUSE: • Run the soak program twice in succession. • Unplug the power cord from the socket. • Leave the door slightly open, in order to prevent the formation of unpleasant odours inside the washing tank. • Fill the rinse aid dispenser. • Shut off the water supply tap. 37 User instructions BEFORE STARTING THE DISHWASHER AFTER PROLONGED DISUSE: • • • Check that there are no deposits of sludge or rust inside the water pipe: if there are, allow the water to run from the water supply tap for a few minutes. Plug the power cord back into the socket. 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: • • • • • • • 38 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. User instructions 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. Certain detergents can be more corrosive than others. 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.
