General safety Disposal Saving energy and respecting the environment
Keep this instruction manual in a safe place for future reference. If the appliance is sold, given away or moved, please ensure the manual is kept with the machine, so that the new owner may benefit from the advice contained within it. Please read this instruction manual carefully: it contains important information regarding the safe installation, use and maintenance of the appliance. If the appliance must be moved at any time, keep it in an upright position; if absolutely necessary, it may be tilted onto its back.
Connecting the water inlet hose
To a suitable cold water connection point: before attaching the hose, run the water until it is perfectly clear so that any impurities that may be present in the water do not clog the appliance; after performing this operation, screw the inlet hose tightly onto a tap with a ¾ gas threaded connection. [. . . ] At this stage it is not possible to change the wash cycle.
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 shut or once the electricity supply is restored.
* Only available in selected models.
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. The number and type of wash cycles and options may vary depending on the dishwasher model.

Notes: Optimum performance levels when using the "Rapid wash" cycles can be achieved by observing the maximum amounts of crockery specified. To make it easier to measure out the detergent, it is worth remembering that: 1 tablespoon = 15 gr. of powder = approximately 5 ml of liquid
* The Eco wash cycle adheres to the regulation EN-50242. Although it has a longer duration than other wash cycles it uses less energy and is les harmful to the environment.

Rinse aid and refined salt
Only use products which have been specifically designed for dishwashers. Follow the instructions given on the packaging.
If using a multi-functional product it is not necessary to add rinse aid; however, we recommend that you add salt, especially if you live in an area where the water is hard or very hard. - Press the ON/OFF button; the wash cycle phase (washing, drying, end) indicator lights will flash. There is a water hardness level for every wash cycle: E. g. : wash cycle 1, water hardness level 1 wash cycle 2, water hardness level 2, etc. - To exit the function, wait approximately 30 seconds or switch off the machine using the ON/OFF button. Even if using multi-functional tablets, the salt dispenser should still be filled.
If you do not add salt or rinse aid, the LOW SALT* and LOW RINSE AID* indicator lights remain lit.

Measuring out the rinse aid
Rinse aid makes it easier for the crockery to dry, as water runs off surfaces more readily and therefore does not leave streaks or marks. The rinse aid dispenser should be filled: When the LOW RINSE AID* indicator light on the control panel is illuminated; 1. Open the dispenser by turning the lid (G) in an anticlockwise direction. Pour in the rinse aid, making sure it does not overflow from the dispenser. NEVER pour the rinse aid directly into the appliance tub.
For values between 0°f and 10°f, we do not recommend the use of salt. [. . . ] To avoid wasting detergent, use the product in appropriate quantities based on the manufacturers recommendations, the hardness of the water and the soil level and quantity of crockery to be washed. Even if they are biodegradable, detergents contain substances which may alter the balance of nature.
Disposal of packaging materials: observe local legislation so that the packaging may be reused. The European Directive 2002/96/EC relating to Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) states that household appliances should not be disposed of using the normal solid urban waste cycle. Exhausted appliances should be collected separately in order to optimise the cost of re-using and recycling the materials inside the machine, while preventing potential damage to the atmosphere and to public health.
