RINSE AID NEEDS TO BE ADDED.
dark: OK. clear: NEEDS TO BE ADDED
Only use rinse aids recommended for use in domestic dishwashers. Immediately wipe away any rinse aid spilt accidentally. This prevents the formation of excess suds which can cause
a fault function of the appliance.
If there are streaks: reduce the dosage by turning the dial to a lower setting (1-3). If crockery is not perfectly dry: increase the dosage by turning the dial to a higher setting (5-6).
Plastic dishes have more difficulty drying and a higher rinse aid setting will not improve the situation.
Detergents with rinse aid incorporated may be effective only with longer programs. In the case of shorter programs, detergent residue may be a problem (if necessary, use powder
detergent). Detergents with rinse aid incorporated tend to form excess suds.

What to do if...
If a fault occurs, before contacting the After-sales Service, make the following checks to try and remedy the problem.
Most faults can be remedied by taking the following courses of action, quickly restoring normal appliance operation.
The appliance... Possible causes... Solutions...
...is not working/will not start - The appliance must be switched on. - Check the household circuit fuse if there is no power supply.
- The dishwasher door doesn’t close. - Check if the dishwasher’s door is closed.
- “Delayed start” option is ON.
- Check whether the “Delayed start” option (if available) has been selected. If it has,
the appliance will only start once the set time has elapsed. If necessary, set the
delayed start to “0” (RESET the appliance).
...the CANCEL/Off indicator lamp
blinks 6 times
- Water tap closed. - The water tap must be open.
- Kinked water inlet hose or clogged inlet
filters.
- The water inlet hose must not be kinked and the relative inlet filter in the water
tap connector must not be dirty or clogged.
- Water pressure too low. - The water tap must be fully open during water inlet (minimum capacity: 0.5 litres
per minute).
...the CANCEL/Off indicator lamp
blinks 6 times/wash program
ended too early (dishes are dirty
and wet)
- Dirty or clogged filters. - The filters must not be dirty or clogged.
- Too little water in the dishwasher’s water
system.
- Concave items (e.g. bowls, cups) must be arranged facing downwards in the rack.
- Drain hose incorrectly fitted.
- The drain hose must be fitted correctly (for high mounted appliances, leave min.
200-400 mm from the lower edge of the appliance) - see Assembly instructions.
- High level of foam inside. - Repeat without detergent or wait until foam disappears.
...the CANCEL/Off indicator lamp
blinks 8 times
- Dirty filters. - Clean the filters.
- Kinked drain hose. - The drain hose must not be kinked.
- Syphon hose connection closed. - The closure disk of the syphon hose connection must be removed.
After taking the above course of action, the fault message must be reset. In the majority of cases the fault is thus eliminated.
RESET: Press the CANCEL/Off button.
Close the door.
Water drains automatically for up to 1 minute.
The appliance is now ready to be restarted.
Page: 9
GB -10-
What to do if...
Crockery and cutlery... Possible causes... Solutions...
...are not perfectly clean/have
food residues
- Too little space between dishes (incorrect
arrangement of the concave items in the
rack).
- Arrange crockery so that items do not touch each other. Concave items (e.g.
bowls, cups) must be arranged facing downwards in the rack.
- Too little detergent; detergent too old or
incorrectly stored.
- If necessary, use more detergent, observing the manufacturer’s indications as
regards dosage. Always store detergent in a dry place and do not store it for
excessively long periods of time.
- Temperature not high enough for heavily
soiled crockery.
- For heavily soiled crockery, select a wash program with a higher temperature (see
Table of programs - chapter “Chart” - page 2).
- Loading of the dishwasher using lower and
upper rack at the same time with “Half
load/Multizone” option.
- If you select the “Half load/Multizone” option (if available), remember to load only
the upper rack or only the lower rack to increase washing power and thus obtain
optimum wash results.
- Frequent use of Eco 50°C.
- In the event of frequent use of the Eco 50°C program (if available), from time to
time select the Intensive 70°C program (if available).
- Clogged spray arms, dirty filters or not
fitted correctly.
- The spray arms must not be clogged, the filters must not be dirty and must be
fitted correctly (see page 8, “Maintenance and care“).
- Spray arms stuck impeded by crockery or
cutlery.
- The spray arms must be able to turn freely and must not be impeded by crockery
or cutlery.
...salt indicator lit - Use tablets for soft water. - Set “Tablet” option; if this option is not available, it is normal for the salt indicator
to light up.
...have deposits: regeneration salt
residue
- Water too hard. - In areas with very hard water, more regeneration salt needs to be added (see page 3,
“How to set water hardness”).
- Salt reservoir cap open. - Close the salt reservoir cap properly.
- Not enough rinse aid. - If you use a combined action detergent, try adding more rinse aid.
...are not dry - Plastic containers dry badly. - Synthetic materials do not dry well; if wet at end of cycle, wipe dry.
- Clean dishes left in dishwasher for a long
time after end of cycle (e.g. when using
“Delayed start” option).
- In this situation, the presence of drops of water on dishes and on the sides of the
dishwasher is normal.
Try releasing the door 5 minutes before removing the dishes.
- Incorrect arrangement of the concave
items in the rack.
- Arrange crockery so that water does not collect in cavities.
- Incorrect dosage the rinse aid. - Increase the dosage of rinse aid (see page 4, “Adding rinse aid”).
- Rapid program selected. - The Rapid program 40°C / 45°C is intended for quickly washing lightly soiled
dishes. If used for a full load of medium/heavy soiled dishes, the dishes may not dry
completely. If so, select a standard-length program. For best results, open the door
after the end of the program and wait 15 minutes before unloading the dishwasher.

GB -11-
What to do if...
Crockery and cutlery... Possible causes... Solutions...
...have discoloured plastic parts - Tomato/Carrot juice. - Tomato sauce, for example, can lead to discolouring of plastic parts. Powder
detergent is recommended as it allows slightly higher doses to be used for
improved whitening. Programs with higher wash temperatures should be used.
...opaque glasses, etc. - Dishes unsuitable for washing in
dishwashers (porcelain), - Only use dishwasher-proof crockery and dishes.
...removable deposits on glasses - Usage of incorrect programs for glasses. - Dishes should be put together, to avoid touching each other. Do not put glassware
together in baskets. Use suitable program for glass.
...glasses not sparkling - Not conform of glasses to washing in
dishwashers (porcelain). - Some kinds of glass cannot be washed in the dishwasher.
...permanent deposits on glasses - Rainbow effect. - This phenomenon is irreversible. We recommend in future:
- Change the control of system of dosage of softener.
- Be careful – follow recommended detergent dosage.
- For combined action tablets see detergent producer’s recommendations.
...tea cups darken and dirt does
not disappear after washing in
dishwasher
- Not known.
- This phenomenon is inevitable. Theine alters colours permanently.
...rust marks - Pre-wash program not used. - Salty or acidic food residues can cause rust marks even on stainless steel cutlery. To
avoid this, always use the Pre-wash program if the dishes are to be washed later.
...other marks - Rinse aid dosage too low. - In the presence of marks, increase the rinse aid dosage (see page 4, “Adding rinse aid”).
- If you use a combined action detergent, try adding more rinse aid.
...streaks - Rinse aid dosage too high. - In the presence of streaks, reduce the rinse aid dosage (see page 4, “Adding rinse aid”).
- If you use a combined action detergent which includes rinse aid, do not add any
additional rinse aid.
...suds - Unsuitable dosage of detergent/rinse aid. - Only use the amount of detergent/rinse aid required, since excessive amounts can
lead to excess suds.
If, after carrying out the above checks, the fault persists, disconnect the mains plug and turn off the water tap. Contact the After-sales Service (see warranty).
Before contacting our After-Sales Service, take note of the following:
- the description of the fault,
- the appliance type and model,
- the service code (the number indicated on the adhesive rating plate) inside the door
on the right-hand side:

Precautions and general recommendations
1. Packing
The packaging materials are 100% recyclable and marked with the recycling symbol .
2. Removing the packaging and inspecting the contents
After unpacking, make sure that the dishwasher is undamaged and that the door
closes correctly. If in doubt, contact a qualified technician or your local retailer.
3. Before using the dishwasher for the first time
- The appliance is designed to operate at ambient temperatures of between 5°C and 45°C.
- This dishwasher has been tested by the manufacturer to ensure it functions correctly.
Such testing may leave slight drips/water marks which will disappear with the first wash.
4. Energy and water savings
- Do not rinse crockery under running water.
- Always fully load the dishwasher before running it or select the “Half load/
Multizone” option (if available).
- If ecological energy sources are available such as solar panel heating, heat pumps or
centralised heating systems, the appliance may be connected to the hot water
mains up to a maximum temperature of 60°C. Make sure the water inlet hose is of
the correct type (“70°C Max” or “90°C Max”).
5. Child safety
- Keep the packaging materials out of the reach of children.
- Children must not be allowed to play with the dishwasher.
- Store the detergent, rinse aid and salt out of the reach of children.
