Maintenance and cleaning

Clean the external surfaces of the machine and control panel
with a damp soft cloth. If necessary use only neutral
detergents. Never use abrasive products, scouring pads or
solvent (acetone, trichloroethylene etc....). 
Ensure that the seals around the door, the detergent and rinse
aid dispensers are cleaned regularly with a damp cloth.
We recommend every 3 months to run a 65°C wash
programme without dishes using detergent.
Cleaning the filters
The filters in the base of the washing compartment are to a
large extent self-cleaning. Nevertheless the filters should be
checked and cleaned from time to time. Dirty filters will
degrade the washing result.
1. Open the door, remove the lower basket.
2. The dishwasher filter system comprises a coarse/fine filter 
(A/B), a microfilter (C) and a flat filter (D). 
Some dishwasher models filter system comprises only a 
coarse filter (A), a microfilter (C) and a flat filter (D).
Unlock the filter system using the handle on the microfilter, 
and remove.
3. Turn the handle 
a turn 
anticlockwise and 
4. Take hold of the 
coarse/fine filter 
(A/B) by the handle 
with the hole and 
remove from the 
microfilter (C).
5. Clean all filters 
thoroughly under 
running water.
6. Remove the flat filter 
(D) from the base of 
the washing 
compartment and 
clean both faces 
7. Put the flat filter (D) 
back in the base of 
the washing 
8. Place the coarse/fine 
filter (A/B) in the microfilter (C) and press together.
9. Put the filter combination in place and lock by turning the 
handle clockwise to the stop. During this process ensure 
that the flat filter does not protrude above the base of the 
washing compartment.
Under no circumstances may the dishwasher be used
without filters.
Incorrect repositioning and fitting of the filters will
produce poor washing results.
NEVER try to remove the
upper spray arm.
If residues of soil have
clogged the holes in the
upper spray arm, remove
them with a toothpick.
Check that the WRD is not clogged with detergent residue. If
necessary rinse it under running water after having removed it
from the basket by twisting it anticlockwise and pulling it
Never use your dishwasher
without the WRD
dispenser. Since WRD also
ensures correct
distribution of the water to
the upper spray arm,
running the dishwasher
without it will impair the
washing results.
Prolonged periods of non-operation 
If you are not using the machine for any period of time you are
advised to: 
1. Unplug the appliance and then turn off the water. 
2. Fill the rinse aid dispenser. 
3. Leave the door ajar to prevent the formation of any 
unpleasant smells. 
4. Leave the inside of the machine clean. 
Frost precautions 
Avoid placing the machine in a location where the temperature
is below 0°C. If this is unavoidable, empty the machine, close
the appliance door, disconnect the water inlet pipe and empty
Moving the machine 
If you have to move the machine (moving house etc....): 
1. Unplug it.
2. Turn the water tap off.
3. Remove the water inlet and discharge hoses.
4. Pull the machine out together with the hoses. 
Avoid over tilting the machine during transportation.
