INSTALLATION AND FITTING 1 CONNECTION TO THE PLUMBING a The hose must run between the wall and the bottom space at the back of the dishwasher (b1) so that it is not squashed or overstretched. There should be a fixed water outlet drain at a distance of between 25 and 100 cm from the floor. Make sure that the outlet pipe is not too rigid, bent or squashed. b If your dishwasher has a hot water inlet, connect the pipe to the hot water tap. In this case, the maximum temperature must not exceed 60ºC. Bear in mind that this type of water supply may affect the washing and drying capacity of the appliance. max. 100 cm min. 25 cm It is very important for the bend pipe of the outlet hose is located securely in water outlet so that it cannot disconnet.

It is important for the dishwasher to rest firmly on the floor, in a perfectly upright position. It should then be levelled to rectify the effect of any unevenness of the floor. Use a spirit level. If the appliance is to be positioned under a worktop, top can be removed or left in position. POSITIONING LEVELLING 55 English Please refer to the specification label on the top edge of the door before making the electrical connections. Make sure that the power voltage connected to the plug socket is as shown on the label. 2 ELECTRICAL CONNECTION 3 LEVELLING AND POSITIONING a b a b If you wish to remove the cover, you may do this by detaching the rear part of the same. Remove the rear counterweight and pull out the insulating blanket, if the model has one. Serial number Model The specifications label is on the top edge of the interior of the door. This label must never be removed, since it provides information about the exact model of the dishwasher, required power supply, serial number and warranty. I M P O R TA N T It is very important for the dishwasher to be connected to an earthed plug socket. The electrical installation, plug, socket, fuses or circuit breaker and meter must be capable of the maximum power shown on the specifications label. If the power cable is damaged, it must be replaced exclusively by the manufacturers, aftersales service (TAS) or authorised personnel.

Before starting up the dishwasher, you will need to know the water hardness in your area. You can find this out by either: 1º Consulting the local Water Board, 2º consulting the T.A.S. (Technical Assistance Service), or 3º using the Aquadur strip included in the accessories bag, following the instructions below. 1 WATER HARDNESS, SALT, RINSE-AID AND DETERGENT USING THE APPLIANCE - A FEW PRACTICAL TIPS DISHWASHWER 59 To find out the water hardness: Place the strip in a glass of water for one second, and then take it out. Shake it and wait for one minute. The strip will show the water hardness. Check the result of the test against the table below. You will probably need to adjust your dishwasher. a b c If no salt needs to be added to your dishwasher, go straight on to the "rinse aid" section. Water hardness adjustment. Water contains scale. The more scale, the harder the water. To prevent the scale in the water from damaging the dishwasher, it is equipped with a descaler to reduce the scale and leave it perfectly clean for washing. The descaler uses salt to function. b 1 min. a 1 sec. c HF: Water hardness (French system) DH: Water hardness (German system).

MANUAL REGULATION If your dishwasher has a salt dial on the inner right hand side like the one shown in the photograph (Mod.C), this means your dishwasher has an electronic salt regulator and the salt is adjusted via the control panel. Press and hold down the Short Wash button for three seconds. The letter "L" followed by a number (L2) will appear on the display. Press the Short Wash button again to select the position required on the salt dial. Press the Start button to validate the selection. If there is a salt regulator like the one shown in the photographs (Mod. A-B) inside your dishwasher on the right-hand side, turn it to the number that corresponds to the hardness of the water in your area (see table). To turn it to the correct position, use a coin (Mod. A) or a screwdriver (Mod. B). Controlling the salt level Depending on the model, dishwashers will have a manual or electronic salt level control. ELECTRONIC ADJUSTAMENT a b c c a b Remember: You must adjust the salt dial position according to the result of the water hardness test. See the table on the previous page. This simple adjustment of your dishwasher is vital for its correct functioning. Do not ignore it. REGULATOR Model C REGULATOR Model B REGULATOR Model A If you wish to use combined detergent tablets (3-in-1, 4-in-1), turn the dial to the corresponding test result number. If you use traditional detergents after this, turn the dial to the test result number again.

c b a RESERVOIR A SEL d 61 c d The first time you fill the salt container, you must: Pour in the salt but do not fill the container to the top. Top it up with water. Stir with a spoon. Close the lid tight and clean the salt around the container. When the salt container needs filling, you should always do it before a wash and not afterwards. When does the salt need refilling? A pilot light will come on to show when more salt needs to be added. a b Where to put the salt The dishwasher has a salt container in the bottom of the tub. Important: If your dishwasher does not have a display or pilot light, you should periodically refill the salt that has been used (about every 20 washes for medium-hard water). PILOT LIGHT SCREEN You should not use salt if your dishwasher does not need it. In this case, the pilot light will remain on at all times. I M P O R TA N T English

a The rinse-aid helps drying and prevents drops of water from clinging to utensils after washing. The rinse-aid container is located on the inside of the door, next to the detergent container. When do I need to refill the rinse aid? The dishwasher itself will inform you of when the rinse aid needs refilling. There are three types of indicator, depending on the model: display window, pilot light or information on the screen. A greater amount of rinse-aid does not necessarily mean better results. In fact, too much rinse-aid can lead to water marks. I M P O R TA N T It has a 4-position dispenser for adjusting the amount of rinse-aid to the water quality (the dispenser is set at position 2 at the factory). If you notice drops of water on utensils, increase the position of the rinse-aid dispenser. If the utensils have white or sticky lines, lower the position. Once the level of the dispenser has been set, fill the container to the top, but do not overfill it. If this occurs, clean the spillage with a cloth. a DISPLAY WINDOW EMPTY FULL RINSE-AID CONTAINER DISPENSER Depending on the model of dishwasher, you will be given an indication of when the rinse aid needs refilling: Display window beside the rinse aid tank cap. If you can see a light colour through the window, it needs refilling. If you can see a dark colour, there is enough rinse aid.

English b a Pour in the detergent, then close the tank cap. Some programmes also require part of the dose of detergent to be poured into the tank cap compartment. Detergent comes in tablet, powder and liquid form. You can consult the amount of detergent needed on the programme chart. Detergent The detergent is poured into a tank on the inside of the door, beside the rinse aid tank. If you use detergent tablets instead of traditional products (granulated salt, powder detergent, liquid rinse aid), you may notice a loss of efficiency, particularly in the case of short programmes and/or programmes with low wash temperatures. If you notice any performance problems with your dishwasher, e.g. there is a white film on the tank or on the dishes, an accumulation of scale or poor drying efficiency, you should go back to using traditional products. We would remind you that if you go back to using traditional granulated salt, you will need to run a few programmes before the dishwasher performs perfectly again, and there may still be some residue left on the tank and dishes. If you wish to use combined tablet products, read the instructions and indications for use on the packet carefully. In case of doubt, consult the cleaning product manufacturer. We provide no guarantee for any complaints directly related to the use of this type of products. 63 b DETERGENT CONTAINER a

Not all utensils can be washed in a dishwasher. Do not attempt to wash items made of wood or earthenware or plastic that is not heat resistant. Stainless steel cutlery can be washed easily; however, ensure that silver cutlery does not come into contact as they may stain. Items made of aluminium may fade in time. Patterns on decorated porcelain may wear off if the quality is not good. Check with the manufacturer of China. Only wash glasses that are dishwasher-compatible. Cut glass should not be washed in dishwasher. Types of dishes 2 TABLEWARE AND UTENSILS. TYPES AND POSITIONING Please make sure your utensils are dishwasher-compatible. Placing the utensils in the dishwasher It is very important to place the utensils correctly in the racks to guarantee a perfect wash. The lower rack is for dirtier, more resistant items: pans, oven dishes and plates. Make sure there is sufficient space between each one for the jet of water. Pots must be placed upside down. If your model has fold- down racks, you can use them in vertical position for washing plates or in horizontal position for large items such as saucepans a b Bowls are placed on the left and plates on the right. Start loading plates from the outside of the rack to the inside. Plates should not be touching. I M P O R TA N T VERTICAL POSITION HORIZONTAL POSITION FOR 12 PLACE SETTINGS EN-50242 LOADING PLATES

9 BASIC TIPS There a few things you should always bear in mind. If you do, your dishwasher will last longer and be more efficient. Fill the dishwasher: Try to make the most of your dishwasher’s capacity. This will help you reduce water and electricity consumption and lead to quieter operation and be more economical. Position utensils correctly. For best quality washes, the spray arms should be able to spin freely. Likewise, the utensils should be positioned correctly to ensure that they are reached by the jet of water. Programme selection. Select the correct wash programme and additional functions as required. (See the programme chart on page 71). a b c When the wash programme is complete, the dishwasher will emit a continuous beeping sound for 3 seconds and/or the END (STOP) pilot light will come on. 7 END OF PROGRAMME If a power cut should occur, when the electricity comes back on the dishwasher will continue to run from where it left off. 8 POWER CUTS

d a APPLIANCE MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING You should perform the cleaning operations regularly so that your dishwasher will last longer. You should do the following every three months: DISHWASHWER • Clean the filter. • Clean the spray arms. • Clean the inside. • Clean the outside. This will make your dishwasher last longer. 73 1 CLEANING THE WASH FILTER I M P O R TA N T If you are planning to be away for a long period, leave the dishwasher door open so that the air can circulate freely inside the machine. Take out the bottom rack, remove the interior filter by turning it anticlockwise and pulling it upwards. Remove the exterior filter. Remove the filter protector (some models). It is essential that filters are put back in place correctly. Make sure the filter protector is in place. The exterior filter fits into position. Put the interior filter in position and turn it clockwise as far as it will go. a b c d The filter is made up of two or three parts (depending on model type): interior filter, exterior filter and filter protector. It is located at the bottom of the dishwasher under the bottom rack. b c

a c b 2 CLEANING THE SPRINKLERS 4 CLEANING THE OUTSIDE OF THE APPLIANCE Clean the outside with a cloth and soapy water. The third sprinkler is removed by pressing upwards on it and then unscrewing it. The top sprinkler is fitted to the top basket. It should be totally unscrewed to remove it. The bottom sprinkler is removed by turning the lower screw to the left to loosen it and then pulling upwards on the sprinkler. Rinse the sprinklers under the tap and clean them with a non- scratch sponge. The water outlet holes must be kept clean. Unblock any holes that are obstructed. Then put the sprinklers back. The dishwasher should be cleaned every three months to remove any dirt from the inside of the machine. You will need to use machine cleaner and specific products for cleaning dishwashers (follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use). 3 CLEANING THE INSIDE OF THE DISHWASHER I M P O R TA N T For safety reasons, make sure the appliance is not in operation while it is being cleaned. The third sprinkler (depending on the model), the top sprinkler and the bottom sprinkler should be cleaned every three months. To remove the sprinklers for cleaning: Before any cleaning or maintenance operations, unplug the dishwasher from the mains. I M P O R TA N T Use non-scratch and non-abrasive products. Dry with a cloth. a b c
