WARNING! When using your dishwasher, follow the precautions listed below:


This appliance must be grounded. In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of an electric shock by providing a path of least resistance of electric current. This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in the risk of an electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service representative if you are in doubt whether the appliance is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance. If it does not fit the out let, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish rack of the dishwasher. Do not touch the heating element during or immediately after use. (This instruction is only applicable to machines with a visual heating element.) Do not operate your dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are properly in place. Open the door very carefully, because if the dishwasher is operating, there will be a risk of water squirting out. Do not place any heavy objects on or stand on the door when it is open. The appliance could tip forward. When loading items to be washed: 1) Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to
damage the door seal; 2) Warning: Knives and other utensils with sharp
points must be loaded in the basket with their points down or placed in a horizontal position. When using your dishwasher, you should prevent plastic items from coming into contacting with the heating element. (This instruction is only applicable to machines with a visual heating element.) Check that the detergent compartment is empty after completion of the washing cycle. Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked with dishwasher safe or the equivalent. For plastic items not so marked, check the manufacturer’s recommendations. Use only detergent and rinsing additives designed for an automatic dishwasher. Never use soap, laundry detergent, or hand washing detergent in your dishwasher. Keep these products out of the reach of children.

Keep children away from detergent and rinse aid, keep children away from the open door of the dishwasher, there could still be some detergent left inside. This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lacking experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance. Dishwasher detergents are strongly alkaline, they can be extremely dangerous if swallowed. Avoid contacting with skin and eyes and keep children away from the dishwasher when the door is open. The door should not be left open, since this could increase the risk of tripping. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or its service agent or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard. Remove the door to the washing compartment when removing an old dishwasher from service or discarding it. Please dispose of packing materials properly. Use the dishwasher only for its intended function. During installation, the power supply must not be excessively or dangerously bent or flattened. Do not tamper with controls. The appliance is to be connected to the water mains using new hose sets and the old hose-sets should not be reused. The maximum number of place settings to be washed is 12.

3. Prior to Using for the First Time
Before using your dishwasher for the first time: A. Fill the rinse aid dispenser B. Add the detergent

A. Rinse Aid Dispenser
Rinse Aid Dispenser
The rinse aid is released during the final rinse to prevent water from forming droplets on your dishes, which can leave spots and streaks. It also improves drying by allowing water to roll off the dishes. Your dishwasher is designed to use liquid rinse aids. The rinse aid dispenser is located inside the door next to the detergent dispenser.
To fill the dispenser, open the cap and pour the rinse aid into the dispenser until the level indicator turns completely black. The volume of the rinse aid container is about 110ml.

Function of Rinse Aid
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring thorough rinsing, and spot and streak free drying.

Only use branded rinse aid for dishwasher. Never fill the rinse aid dispenser with any other substances (e.g. dishwasher cleaning agent, liquid detergent). This would damage the appliance.

When to Refill the Rinse Aid Dispenser
If there is no rinse aid warning light in the control panel, you can judge the amount of rinse aid by the color of the optical level indicator “C” located next to the cap. When the rinse aid container is full, the whole indicator will be dark. As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of the dark dot decreases. You should never let the rinse aid get below 1 / 4 full.

As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of the black dot on the rinse aid level indicator changes, as illustrated below.
Full 3 / 4 full 1 / 2 full 1 / 4 full – Should refill to eliminate spotting Empty

C (Rinse aid indicator)

How to Fill the Rinse Aid Dispenser

1 Open the dispenser, turn the cap to the “open” (left) arrow and lift it out. 2 Pour the rinse aid into the dispenser, and be careful not to overfill. 3 Replace the cap by inserting it aligned with “open” arrow and turning it to the closed (right) arrow.
Be careful not to overfill the dispenser, because this could cause over sudsing. Wipe away any spills with a damp cloth. Don’t forget to replace the cap before you close dishwasher door.
Attention! Clean up any rinse aid spilled during filling with an absorbent cloth to avoid excess foaming during the next wash.

NOTE: Clean up any rinse aid spilled during filling with an absorbent cloth to avoid excessive foaming during the next
wash. Don’t forget to replace the cap before you close dishwasher door.

Adjusting Rinse Aid Dispenser

Adjust lever (Rinse)

Adjust lever (Rinse). The rinse aid dispenser has six or four settings. Always start with the dispenser set on “4”. If spots and poor drying are a problem, increase the amount of rinse aid dispensed by removing the dispenser lid and rotating the dial to “5”. If the dishes still are not dried properly or show spots, adjust the dial to the next higher lever until your dishes are spot-free. The recommended setting is “4”. (Factory value is “4”.)

Increase the dose if there are drops of water or lime spots on the dishes after washing. Reduce it if there are sticky whitish stains on your dishes or a bluish film on glassware or knife blades.

B. Detergent
Detergents have chemical ingredients that are necessary to remove dirt, crush dirt and transport it out of the dishwasher. Most of the commercial quality detergents are suitable for this purpose.
There are 3 sorts of detergents 1. With phosphate and with chlorine 2. With phosphate and without chlorine 3. Without phosphate and without chlorine
Normally new pulverized detergent is without phosphate. Thus the water softener function of phosphate is not given. If detergents without phosphate are used in the case of hard water, often white spots appear on dishes and glasses. In this case, please add more detergent to reach better results. Detergents without chlorine do only bleach a little. Strong and coloured spots will not be removed completely. In this case, please choose a program with a higher temperature.
Concentrated Detergent
Based on their chemical composition, detergents can be split in two basic types: Conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components Low alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes
The use of normal washing program in combination with concentrated detergents reduces pollution and is good for your dishes; The washing program is specifically matched to the dirt-dissolving properties of the enzymes of the concentrated detergent. For this reason, an normal washing program in which concentrated detergents are used can achieve the same results that can otherwise only be achieved using an intensive program.
Detergent Tablet
Detergent tablets of different brands dissolve at different speeds. For this reason, some detergent tablets cannot dissolve and develop their full cleaning power during short programs. Therefore please use long programs when using detergent tablets, to ensure the complete removal of detergent residuals.
Detergent Dispenser
The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each washing cycle following the instructions provided in the Washing Cycle Table . Your dishwasher uses less detergent and rinse aid than conventional dishwasher. Generally, only one tablespoon of detergent is needed for a normal wash load. More heavily soiled items need more detergent. Always add the detergent just before starting the dishwasher, otherwise it could get damp and will not dissolve properly.


Proper Use of Detergent
Use only detergent specifically made for the use in dishwashers. Keep your detergent fresh and dry. Don’t put powdered detergent into the dispenser until you’re ready to wash dishes.
Adding Detergent into Dispenser
Push latch to open

Add the Detergent
Fill the detergent dispenser with detergent. The marking indicates the dosing level, as illustrated on the right:

For main wash detergent. For pre-wash detergent.

Please observe the manufacturers dosing and storage recommendations as stated on the detergent packaging.

Close the lid and press until it is locked in place.

If the dishes are heavily soiled, place an additional detergent dose in the pre-wash detergent chamber. This detergent will take effect during the pre-wash phase.

If the lid is closed, push the latch to open. Always add the detergent just before starting each washing cycle. Only use branded detergent and rinse aid for dishwasher. You see information about the amount of detergent for the single program on page 8. Please be aware that soiling levels and water hardness can effect wash results. Please observe the manufacturer’s recommendations on the detergent packaging.

WARNING! Dishwasher detergent is corrosive! Take care to keep it out of reach of children.


4. Loading the Dishwasher Baskets

Consider buying utensils which are identified as dishwasher-proof. Use a mild detergent that is described as ‘kind to dishes’. If necessary, seek further information from the detergent manufacturers. For particular items, select a program with as low temperature as possible. To prevent damage, do not take glass and cutlery out of the dishwasher immediately after the program has ended.

Suitability of Use in the Dishwasher

Not suitable for use
Cutlery with wooden, horn china or mother-of-pearl handles. Plastic items that are not heat resistant. Older cutlery with glued parts that are not temperature resistant. Bonded cutlery items or dishes. Pewter or cooper items. Crystal glass. Steel items subject to rusting. Wooden platters. Items made from synthetic fibres.

Limited suitability
Some types of glasses can become dull after a large number of washes. Silver and aluminum parts have a tendency to discolour during washing. Glazed patterns may fade if washed by machines frequently.

Attention before or after Loading the Dishwasher Baskets
(For the best performance of the dishwasher, follow these loading guidelines. Features and appearance of baskets and cutlery baskets may vary from model to model.)
Scrape off any large food particles. Soften remnants of burnt food in pans. It is not necessary to rinse the dishes under running water. Place objects in the dishwasher in the following way: 1. Items such as cups, glasses, pots/pans, etc. are placed face downwards. 2. Curved items, or ones with recesses, should be loaded aslant so that water can run off. 3. All utensils are stacked securely and can not tip over. 4. All utensils are placed in the way that the spray arms can rotate freely during washing.
NOTE: Very small items should not be washed in the dishwasher as they could easily fall out of the basket.
Load hollow items such as cups, glasses, pans, etc. with the opening downwards, so that water can’t be collected in the container or a deep base. Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another, or cover each other. To avoid damage to glasses, they must not be touched with each other. Load large items which are the most difficult to clean into the lower basket. The upper basket is designed to hold more delicate and lighter dishware such as glasses, coffee and tea cups. Long bladed knives stored in an upright position are a potential hazard! Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving knives must be positioned horizontally in the upper basket. Please do not overload your dishwasher, which is important for good results and for reasonable consumption of energy.

Removing the Dishes
To prevent water dripping from the upper basket into the lower basket, we recommend that you empty the lower basket first and then the upper basket.


The Method of Loading Normal Dishware

Loading the Upper Basket

Loading the Lower Basket

The upper basket is designed to hold more delicate and lighter dishware such as glasses, coffee and tea cups and saucers, as well as plates, small bowls and shallow pans (as long as they are not too dirty). Position the dishes and cookware so that they will not get moved by the spray of water.

We suggest that you place large items and the most difficult to clean items into the lower basket: such as, pots, pans, lids, serving dishes and bowls, as shown in the figure below. It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the side of the racks in order to avoid blocking the rotation of the top spray arm.

Please be reminded that: Pots, serving bowls, etc, must always be placed top down. Deep pots should be slanted to allow water to flow out. The bottom basket features folding spikes so that larger or more pots and pans can be loaded.

Adjusting the Upper Basket

The height of the upper basket can be adjusted in order to create more space for large utensils both for the upper /lower basket. The height of the upper basket can be adjusted by placing the wheels on different height of the rails. Long items, serving cutlery, salad servers and knives should be placed on the shelf so that they do not obstruct the rotation of the spray arms.

Lower position

Upper position

Folding back the Cup Shelves
For better stacking of pots and pans, the spikes can be folded down as shown in the picture right.

Folding Spikes of Lower Basket
For better stacking of pots and pans, the spikes can be folded down as shown in the picture right.

Cutlery Basket
Cutlery should be placed in the cutlery basket with the handles at the bottom. If the rack has side baskets, the spoons should be loaded separately into the appropriate slots, especially long utensils should be placed in the horizontal position at the front of the upper basket as shown in the picture.
WARNING! Do not let any item extend through the bottom. Always load sharp utensils with the sharp point down!
For personal safety and a top quality cleaning, place the silverware in the basket making sure that:
They do not rest together. Silverware is placed with the handles-down. But knives and other potentially dangerous utensils are placed with the handles-up.

Turning on the Appliance
Starting a cycle wash
Draw out the lower and upper baskets, load the dishes and push them back. It is recommended to load the lower basket first, then the upper one (see the section entitled Loading the Dishwasher Basket). Pour in the detergent (see the section entitled Detergent and Rinse Aid ). Insert the plug into the socket. The power supply is 220-240 VAC /50 HZ, the specification of the socket is 10A 250VAC. Make sure that the water supply is turned on to full pressure. Close the door, press the On/Off button to switch on the machine. Turn the program selector, the washing program will be changed as the following direction: Intensive->Heavy->Eco->Glass->90min->Rapid If a program is selected, the responding light will be on. Then press the Start/Pause button, the dishwasher starts.


Changing the Program
Premise: A cycle that is underway can only be modified if it has only been running for a short time. Otherwise, the detergent may have already been released, and the appliance may have already drained the wash water. In this case, the detergent dispenser must be refilled (see the section entitled “Detergent”).
Press the Start/Pause button for more than 3s to stop washing, the machine will be in a standby state, and then you can change the program to the desired cycle setting (see the section entitled “Starting a Wash Program”)
If you open the door during a washing cycle, the machine will pause. The program light will stop blinking and the buzzer will beep every minute unless you close the door. After you close the door, the machine will keep on working after 10 seconds

Forgetting to Add a Dish

A forgotten dish can be added any time before the detergent cup opens.

Press the Start/Pause button to stop the washing.

Add forgotten dishes.

Open the door a little.

Close the door.

After the spray arms stop working, you can open the door completely.

Press the Start/Pause button, the dishwasher will run after 10 seconds.

At the End of the Washing Cycle
When the working cycle has finished, the buzzer of the dishwasher will sound for 8 seconds, then stop. Turn off the appliance using the ON/OFF button, shut off the water supply and open the door of the dishwasher. Wait for a few minutes before unloading the dishwasher to avoid scalding. The dishes and utensils are still hot and more susceptible to breakage. They will also be dried better.
Switch off the Dishwasher The LED screen is on but the colon icon is not blinking, and only in this case the program has ended. 1. Switch off the dishwasher by pressing the ON/OFF button. 2. Turn off the water tap.
Open the Door Carefully. Hot dishes are sensitive to knocks. The dishes should be allowed to cool down around 15 minutes before removed from the appliance. Open the dishwasher’s door, leave it ajar and wait a few minutes before removing the dishes. In this way they will be cooler and the drying will be improved.
Unload the Dishwasher It is normal that the dishwasher is wet inside. Empty the lower basket first and then the upper one. This will avoid water dripping from the upper basket on to the dishes in the lower one.

WARNING! It is dangerous to open the door when washing, because the hot water may scald you.


6. Maintenance and Cleaning
Filtering System
The filter prevents larger remnants of food or other objects from getting inside the pump. The residues may block the filter. In this case they must be removed.
The filter system consists of a coarse filter, a flat filter (main filter) and a micro filter (fine filter).
Main filter
Food and soil particles trapped in this filter are pulverized by a special jet on the lower spray arm and washed down to drain.
Coarse filter
Larger items, such as pieces of bones or glass, which could block the drain, are trapped in the coarse filter. To remove the items caught in this filter, gently squeeze the tap on the top of this filter and lift it out.
Fine filter
This filter holds soil and food residues in the sump area and prevents them from being redeposited on the dishes during washing cycle.
Filter Assembly
The filter efficiently removes food particles from the wash water, allowing it to be recycled during the cycle. For best performance and results, the filter must be cleaned regularly. For this reason, it is a good idea to remove the larger food particles trapped in the filter after each washing cycle by rinsing the semicircular filter and cup under running water. To remove the filter device, pull the cup handle in a upward direction.


The dishwasher must never be used without the filters. Improper replacement of the filter may reduce the performance level of the appliance and damage dishes and utensils.


Step 1 Turn the filter in anti-clockwise direction.

Step 2 Lift the filter assembly up.
NOTE: When following this procedure from Step 1 to Step 2, the filter system will be removed; When following from Step 2 to Step 1, the filter system will be installed. 10

– Inspect the filters for blocking after every time the dishwasher has been used. – By unscrewing the coarse filter, you can remove the filter system. Remove any food remnants and clean the filters under
running water.
NOTE: The entire filter assembly should be cleaned once a week.

Cleaning the Filter

To clean the coarse filter and the fine filter, use a cleaning brush. Reassemble the filter parts as shown in the figures on the last page and reinsert the entire assembly in the dishwasher, positioning it in its seat and pressing downwards.


When cleaning the filters, don’t knock on them. Otherwise, the filters could be contorted and the performance of the dishwasher could be decreased.

Caring for the Dishwasher
The control panel can be cleaned by using a lightly dampened cloth. After cleaning, make sure to dry it thoroughly.
For the exterior, use a good appliance polish wax. Never use sharp objects, scouring pads or harsh cleaners on any part of the dishwasher.
Cleaning the Door

To clean the edge around the door, you should use only a soft warm, damp cloth. To avoid penetration of water into the door lock and electrical components, do not use a spray cleaner of any kind.


Never use a spray cleaner to clean the door panel as it may damage the door lock and electrical components. Abrasive agents or some paper towels should not be used because of the risk of scratching or leaving spots on the stainless steel surface.

Protect against Freezing
Please take frost protection measures on the dishwasher in winter. Every time after washing cycles, please operate as follows 1. Cut off the electrical power to the dishwasher. 2. Turn off the water supply and disconnect the water inlet pipe from the water valve. 3. Drain the water from the inlet pipe and water valve. (Use a pan to gather the water) 4. Reconnect the water inlet pipe to the water valve. 5. Remove the filter at the bottom of the tub and use a sponge to soak up water in the sump.
NOTE: If your dishwasher cannot work because of the ice, please contact professional service personnel.
Cleaning the Spray Arms
It is necessary to clean the spray arms regularly for hard water chemicals will clog the spray arm jets and bearings.
To remove the upper spray arm, hold the nut, rotate the arm clockwise to remove it.
To remove the lower spray arm, pull out the spray arm upward.
Wash the arms in soapy and warm water and use a soft brush to clean the jets. Replace them after rinsing them thoroughly.

How to Keep Your Dishwasher in Shape

After Every Wash
After every wash, turn off the water supply to the appliance and leave the door slightly open so that moisture and odours are not trapped inside.
Removing the Plug
Before cleaning or performing maintenance, always remove the plug from the socket.
No Solvents or Abrasive Cleaning
To clean the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher, do not use solvents or abrasive cleaning products. Only use a cloth with warm soapy water. To remove spots or stains from the surface of the interior, use a cloth dampened with water and a little vinegar, or a cleaning product made specifically for dishwashers.

When Not in Use for a Long Time
It is recommend that you run a washing cycle with the dishwasher empty and then remove the plug from the socket, turn off the water supply and leave the door of the appliance slightly open. This will help the door seals last longer and prevent odours forming within the appliance.
Moving the Appliance
If the appliance must be moved, try to keep it in the vertical position. If absolutely necessary, it can be positioned on its back.
One of the factors that cause odours to form in the dishwasher is food that remains trapped in the seals. Periodic cleaning with a damp sponge will prevent it.

Installation Instructions
Positioning the Appliance
Position the appliance in the desired location. The back should rest against the wall behind it, and the sides, along the adjacent cabinets or walls. The dishwasher is equipped with water supply and drain hoses that can be positioned to either the right or the left side to facilitate proper installation.
Levelling the Appliance
Once the appliance is positioned for levelling, the height of the dishwasher may be altered via adjustment of the screwing level of the feet.
