****** Page 5 ****** Operating Instructions OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS Safety Instructions The safety aspects of AEG electrical appliances comply with accepted technical standards and the German Appliance Safety Law. Neverthe- less as a manufacturer we consider it our obligation to make you aware of the following safety information: Installation, Connection and Placing into Operation • The dishwasher may only be transported upright. • Check the dishwasher for transport damage. Do not in any circum- stances connect an appliance that is damaged. In the case of damage, please contact your retailer. • Before installing the appliance, ensure that the nominal voltage and type of supply on the rating plate match that of the supply where the appliance is to be installed. The fuse rating is also to be found on the rating plate. • For information on how to correctly install and connect up your dish- washer, please read the “Installation” section. Adaptors / connectors and extension cables must not be used. Child Safety • This appliance is designed to be operated by adults. Children should not be allowed to tamper with the controls or play with the product. • Keep all packaging away from children. • Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children’s reach. • The water in your dishwasher is not suitable for drinking. If there are still remnants of detergent in the appliance, there is a risk of burns! • When disposing of an old appliance, cut off the power supply cable and remove any door catches, to prevent young children being trapped inside. General Safety • Repairs to the dishwasher are only to be carried out by qualified serv- ice engineers. Improper repairs can give rise to significant hazards for the user. If your appliance needs repairing, please contact your local AEG Service Force Centre. 5

****** Page 6 ****** Operating Instructions • Never place the dishwasher in operation if the mains cable, water inlet or drain hose is damaged; or the control panel, work top or plinth area is damaged such that the inside of the appliance is freely accessible. • If the mains lead is damaged, or is to be replaced for a longer lead, the cable (obtainable from AEG Service Force) must be replaced by a service engineer authorised by AEG. • Never unplug the appliance by pulling on the cable, always pull the plug. • Additions or modifications to the dishwasher are not permitted for safety reasons. • Ensure that the door of the dishwasher is always closed when it is not being loaded or unloaded. In this way you will avoid anybody tripping over the open door and hurting themselves. • Long bladed knives stored in an upright position are a potential haz- ard. • Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving knives must be positioned horizontally in the upper basket. • When finished loading or unloading, close the door as an open door can be a hazard. Correct Use • Only wash household dishes using the dishwasher. If the appliance is used for other purposes, or is used incorrectly, the manufacturer can- not accept any liability for any damage caused. • Only use detergents specifically designed for use in domestic dish- washers. • Do not put any solvents in the dishwasher. There is a risk of an explo- sion! • The anti-flood system provides dependable protection against dam- age due to leaks. For this system to function correctly, the following preconditions must be met: – The appliance must remain connected to the mains even when it is switched off. – The dishwasher must be correctly installed. – Always shut off the water supply at the tap when the dishwasher is not to be used for longer periods, e.g. when you are away on holiday. • Do not sit or stand on the open door, the appliance may tip over. 6

****** Page 7 ****** Operating Instructions • In the event of a fault, first close the tap, then switch off the appli- ance and unplug it from the mains. If the appliance is permanently wired to the mains: remove the fuse. Disposal Disposing of the Packaging Material Dispose of the dishwasher packaging material correctly. All the packag- ing materials used are harmless to the environment and can be recy- cled. • Plastic parts are marked with standard international abbreviations: >PEPOM< for polyoxymethylener e.g. plastic clips • Cardboard packaging is manufactured from recycled paper and should be deposited in the waste paper collection for recycling. Disposal of Old Appliances When disposing of old appliances, remove the plug and ensure that any locks or catches are removed to prevent young children becoming trapped inside. Use an authorised disposal site. Economical and Ecological Dishwashing • Ensure that the water softener is correctly adjusted. • Do not pre-rinse dishes under running water. • When you wash a small load, the load sensor calculates the amount of water necessary and shortens the programme. It is more economi- cal to always wash with a full load. • Select the wash programme to suit the nature and degree of the soil- ing on the dishes. • Do not use more detergent, special salt or rinse aid than is recom- mended in these operating instructions and by the detergent manu- facturer. 7 ****** Page 8 ****** Operating Instructions Appliance Features and Control Panel Top Spray Nozzle Rubber Seal for Connecting the Water Feed to the Spray Arm Spray Arms Water hardness switch Container for Salt Container for Detergent Container for Rinse Aid 8 0 o Rating Plate Filters ****** Page 9 ****** Control panel Water sof- Function tener button button INTENSIV To set delay start Display for delay start set Wash programme buttons Control indicators Door handle Operating Instructions Multidisplay ON / OFF button Water softener and function button: In addition to the wash pro- gramme markedr it is also possible to adjust the dishwasher's water sof- tener using a combination of these buttons.

Then perform the following steps: 1 . Adjust the water softener 2. Fill the water softener with water and special salt 3. Fill the rinse aid dispenser with rinse aid Special salt and rinse aid must not be added if you use 3-in-l detergent tablets. Adjust the water softener 41 – 50 7.3-90 5.3 – 7.2 19 – 29 3.3-52 4-18 0.7 -32 To prevent the build up of limescale on dishes and in the dishwasher, the dishes must be washed with soft water, i.e. water with a low lime content. For this reason the dishwasher is fitted with a water softener in which tap water from a hardness of 4 Od (German degree) is softened with the aid of special salt. Your local water authority can advise you on the hardness of the water in your area. The water softener can be set manually using the water hardness switch; it can also be set electronically using the buttons on the control panel. Water hardness Hardness setting in Odl) 30 – 40 in mmol/12) under 0.7 Range 111/1/ 1/11/111 manual o* electronic 5 4 3* 2 no salt required Number of flashes 5 4 3 2 under 4 German degrees, a measure of water hardness 2)(ppm), parts per million *factory setting ****** Page 11 ****** m Operating Instructions Adjust the water softener to the water hardness setting for your area as shown in the table. It is only possible to adjust the water hardness setting when no pro- gramme is running. If you have accidentally started a programme (a LED stays on permanently), the programme must be stopped by press- ing the appropriate button. 1. The dishwasher must be switched off. 2. Manual setting: Open the door on the dishwasher. 3. Remove the lower basket from the dishwasher. 4. Turn the water hardness switch to Oor 1. 5. Re-position the lower basket. 6. Electronic setting: Press the softener and function but- tons simultaneously and keep them pressed. 7. In addition press the ON/OFF button. O 8. The LED indicators for the water softener and function buttons flash. 9. Press the softener button again. – At first the LED indicator for the water softener button will light up continuously for 5 seconds and then begin to flash. The number of flashes corresponds to the hardness setting. – The sequence of flashes is repeated several times after a 5 second pause. 10. Each time you press the water-softener button the hardness setting will go up by 1. (Exception: Hardness setting 1 follows hardness setting 5). – If the hardness setting is changed, the LED indicator for the water- softener button will confirm the change by remaining illuminated continuously for 5 seconds and then flashing again. – The number of flashes corresponds to the new hardness setting. – The sequence of flashes is repeated several times after a 5 second pause. 11. Once the hardness setting is correctly adjusted, press the ON/OFF but- ton. The hardness setting is then stored. 11 ****** Page 12 ****** Operating Instructions Filling with Salt for the Water Softener m IIJ 12 Use only salt designed for dishwashers. Never fill the salt container with any another type of salt (e.g. culinary salt) or dishwasher deter- gent as this would irreparably damage the water softener. Prior to filling with saltf please check each time that you really do have a packet of dishwasher salt in your hand. Fill with dishwasher salt: – Prior to using the dishwasher for the first time – When the SALT indicator $ on the control panel is illuminated. If the water hardness in your area is less than 4 Odg you do not need to use dishwasher salt. The SALT indicator $ on the control panel will remain illuminated. 1. Open the door, remove the lower basket. 2. Undo the lid on the salt container by turning it anticlockwise. 3. When using for the first time: fill the salt container with water. 4. Place the funnel supplied on the con- tainer opening. Fill the container with salt through the funnel; the capacity of the con- tainer is approx. 1.0-1.5 kg depend- ing on the grain size. Do not overfill the salt container with salt. The water expelled by filling the salt container with salt runs out of the salt container onto the base of the washing compartment. This is not a cause for concernr the water will be pumped out at the start of the next wash programme. 5. Clean any salt remnants on the container opening. 6. Turn the lid clockwise to the stop, otherwise dishwasher salt will leak into the wash water, this could lead to poor wash results. To avoid this run a rinse programme after filling the salt container with special salt. This will wash away salt water and any salt crystals that have been spilt. Depending on the size of the salt grains, it can take several hours for the salt to dissolve in the water and the special salt indicator $ to extinguish. The setting of the water softener and the consumption of salt are dependent on the hardness of the local water. ****** Page 13 ****** Operating Instructions Rinse aid Rinse aid ensures thorough rinsing, spot and streak free drying of dishes and glassware. Rinse aid can be added in one of two ways: • If you use the dishwasher detergent and rinse aid separately, add the rinse aid to the rinse aid container. If you opt for this method, please note that the rinse aid container must never be empty. the amount of rinse aid dispensed must be set. • If you use dishwasher detergent which already contains rinse aid, add this to the detergent compartment. If you opt for this method, please note that the rinse aid container must be empty in order to avoid dispensing too much rinse aid. You can switch off the control indicator. Otherwise, the control indicator would stay on permanently owing to the empty container. m Only use rinse aid specifically designed for domestic dishwashers. Never fill the rinse aid container with dishwasher detergent or any other sub- stance (e.g. vinegar essence) as this would damage the appliance. To switch off the control indicator for rinse aid 1. The appliance must be switched off. 2. Press the softener and function buttons simultaneously and keep them pressed. 3. In addition press the ON/OFF button. The LED indicators for the function and water softener buttons flash. 4. Press the function button again. The LED indicator for the function button flashes. 5. The -+1 indicator shows the current setting: The indicator flashes: Control indicator switched on (factory setting) The -+1 indicator does not flash: Control indicator switched off 6. Pressing the function button switches the control indicator on or off. 7. If the control indicator is set, press the ON/OFF button. The setting for the control indicator is then stored. 13 ****** Page 14 ****** Operating Instructions Filling with rinse aid If you use dishwasher detergent and rinse aid separately, fill the rinse aid container: – Prior to using the dishwasher for the first time. When the indicator on the control panel lights up. The rinse aid compartment is on the inside of the dishwasher door. 1. Open the door. 2. Press the rinse aid compartment release button with your finger. 3. Fully open the rinse aid compartment lid. 4. Fill with rinse aid exactly up to the level marked "max"; this corresponds to a quantity of approx. 140 ml. 5. Close the lid and press until it locks into place. 6. Wipe up any spilt rinse aid with a cloth. Otherwise too much foam will be formed during the wash. CZ CD ****** Page 15 ****** Operating Instructions Adjusting Rinse Aid Dosing As the dishes are washed rinse aid is released from the dispenser into the wash water. The dose is factory set at 4, and can be adjusted from 1 to 6. Only change the setting if streaks, milky spots or dried on water marks are visible on glasses or crockery. 1. Open the door of the dishwasher. 2. Press the rinse aid compartment release button with your finger. 3. Fully open the rinse aid compartment lid. 4. Set the dose level. 5. Close the lid and press until it locks into place. 6. If rinse aid has spilt, wipe up with a cloth. In Daily Use • Check the salt and rinse aid levels. • Load cutlery and dishes into the dishwasher • Fill with dishwasher detergent • Select a wash programme suitable for the cutlery and dishes • Start the wash programme 15 ****** Page 16 ****** Operating Instructions Loading Cutlery and Dishes m Sponges, household cloths and any object that can absorb water should not be washed in the dishwasher. For washing in the dishwasher the following cutlery/dishes • are not suitable: Cutlery with wooden, horn, china or mother of pearl handles Plastic items that are not heat resistant Older cutlery with glued parts that is not temperature resistant Bonded cutlery items or dishes Pewter or copper items Lead crystal glass Steel items subject to rusting Wooden platters Items made from synthetic fibres are of limited suitability: Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it is specifically marked as being dishwasher- safe by the manufacturer. Glazed patterns may fade if machine washed frequently. Silver and aluminium parts have a tendency to discolour during washing. Left-overs, e.g. egg white, egg yolk and mustard often cause discolouring and staining on silver. Therefore always clean left-overs from silver immediately, if it is not to be washed straight after use. Some types of glass can become dull after a large number of washes. • Before loading the dishes, you should: Remove all scraps of food. Soften remnants of burnt food in pans. • When loading the dishes and cutleryr please note: Dishes and cutlery must not impede the rotation of the spray arms. -u Load hollow items such as cups, glasses, pans, etc. with the opening downwards so that water cannot collect in the container or a deep base. -u Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another, or cover each other To avoid damage to glasses, they must not touch -u Do not lay small objects (e.g. lids) in the cutlery rack 16 ****** Page 17 ****** Operating Instructions Loading Cutlery 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. m Take care when loading or unload- ing sharp items such as knives. To ensure that all items of cutlery are completely washed, you should 1. Place the grid insert on the cutlery rack 2. Place short knives, forks and spoons in the grid insert with their handles pointing downwards. 3. For larger items of cutlery, e.g. a whisk, half of the top for the cut- lery basket can be left off. On some models of dishwasher it is possible to open the cutlery basket. To ensure that the cutlery rack cannot open on removal from the appliance, you should always hold both parts of the two part handle. 1. Place the cutlery rack on a table or work surface 2. Open the two part handle 3. Remove cutlery 4. Close the two part handle. hill', hhh ****** Page 18 ****** Operating Instructions Loading Pans, Frying Pans and Large Plates Load large and heavily soiled dishes in the lower basket (Plates up to 29cm in diameter). Your dishwasher has one of the following four types of lower basket: Type 1 : None of the plate inserts in the lower basket can be removed Type 2: The right-hand plate inserts in the lower basket can be folded over to the left To ease the loading of large items, the two right-hand plate inserts in the lower basket can be folded over to the left 1.

Lowering the Upper Basket: 1. Pull the upper basket out completely. 2. Holding the upper basket at the rear right, lift it as far as it will go and then lower it vertically. The upper basket will engage in the lower posi- tion. Raising the Upper Basket: 1. Pull the upper basket out completely. 2. Holding the upper basket at the rear right, lift it as far as it will go and then lower it vertically. The upper basket will engage in the higher posi- tion. 21 ****** Page 22 ****** Operating Instructions Filling with Detergent m Only use dishwasher detergent. Fill with detergent: – Prior to the start of a wash programme (not for the pre wash pro- gramme). The detergent is released into the wash water during the programme. Please observe the manufacturer's dosing and storage recommenda- tions as stated on the detergent packaging. The detergent compartment is on the inside of the dishwasher door. US-I. If the lid is closed: press release button (1). The lid springs open. 2. Fill the detergent dispenser with detergent. The markings indicate the dosing levels: "20" corresponds to approx. 20 ml of detergent, "30" corresponds to approx. 30 ml of detergent. 3. Close the lid and press until it locks into place. If the dishes are very heavily soiled put additional detergent into the adjacent chamber (2). This detergent will take effect during the pre wash. 22 1 2 ****** Page 23 ****** Operating Instructions Use of "3 in 1 "/ Combi Detergent Tablets General Advice These products are tablets with combined detergent/rinse-aid and salt functions. 1. Before using these products you should first check that the water hard- ness in your supply is compatible with the use of these products as per the detergent manufacturers instructions (on the product packaging). 2. These products should be strictly used according to the detergent manufacturers instructions. Do not place the tablets in the tub or the cutlery basket as this will result in poorer wash results. The tablets should be placed in the detergent doser. 3. If you encounter problems when using "3 in 1" products for the first time then please contact the detergent manufacturers care line (the telephone number is given on the product packaging). Special Advice When using combination products, the rinse-aid and salt lights are no longer useful. It may be helpful therefore to switch the rinse aid off please note that only some dishwashers have this facility – and selec- ting the lowest possible setting for water hardness. For more information please refer to your instruction manual. If you decide to switch to the use of a standard detergent system we advise that you: • Refill both the salt and rinse aid compartments. • Switch the waterhardness setting to the highest possible position and run for three normal cycles without a load. • Readjust the waterhardness setting again according to the conditions for your region (as per the instruction manual). 23 ****** Page 24 ****** Operating Instructions Concentrated Detergent Based on their chemical composition, dishwasher detergents can be split into two basic types: – conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components – low alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes. The use of 50 oc wash programmes in conjunction with concentrated detergents reduces pollution and is good for your dishes; these wash programmes are specially matched to the dirt-dissolving properties of the enzymes in the concentrated detergent. For this reason 50 oc wash programmes in which concentrated detergents are used can achieve the same results that can otherwise only be achieved using 65 oc pro- grammes. Detergent tablets Detergent tablets of different makes dissolve at different speeds. For this reason some detergent tablets cannot develop their full cleaning power during short programmes. Therefore please use wash pro- grammes with pre wash when using detergent tablets. 24 ****** Page 25 ****** Operating Instructions Selecting the Wash Programme (Programme Table) Choose the most suitable wash programme with the aid of this table: 12 Type of Dishes In Addition Type of Soiling Suitable Pro- gramme: Programme 3 Sequence Consumption 4 Figures: Duration Energy Water Dinner Service and Cooking Utensils heavily soiled • dried on left- overs, particularly egg white and thickeners INTENSIV 700 Pre wash Main wash 2x Rinsing Final rinse Drying 125 min. 115- – kWh 20 litres Dinner Service and Cooking Utensils Coffee Service All and Dessert Types of Dishes Dishes with non temperature resistant dishes average soiled particularly suit- able when concen- trated deter- gents are used.

Pre Wash 12 minutes < 0.1 kWh 4 litres 1) Test programme for test institutes 2) The ECO 500 wash programme washes normally soiled dishes with a very low electricity consumption. If the dishes need to be washed more quickly, as an alternative you can use the NORMAL 500 wash programme. 3) Noise levels vary at different stages of the wash programme as at some programme stages the dishes are washed more energetically so that they will be cleaned more thor- oughly. 4) The consumption figures were determined under standard conditions. They are intended as a guide only and depend on the loading. For this reason figures may vary in practice. 25 ****** Page 26 ****** Operating Instructions Start the wash programme 1. Check that when the dishes and cutlery are loaded in the dishwasher the spray arms are free to rotate. 2. Open the water tap fully. 3. Shut the door. 4. Press the ON/OFF button.

The programme indicator lights up. 4. After the set number of hours the wash programme will begin. Load Sensing Sensor Logic If a wash programme is started even though there are only a few dishes in the upper and/or lower basket, an intelligent electronic system adjusts the amount of water and the duration of the wash programme to the number of dishes. By this means it is possible to wash only a few dishes quickly and economically. At half load (6 place settings), up to 2 litres of water and 0.2 kWh of electricity are saved. 27 ****** Page 28 ****** Operating Instructions Switching Off the Dishwasher Switch off the dishwasher when is illuminated on the programme progress display. 1. Press the ON/OFF button. The ON/OFF button indicator extinguishes. m Hot steam may escape from the appliance when opening the door immediately after the end of the programme. 2. Open the door carefully. Emptying the Dishwasher • The dishes should therefore be allowed to cool down before removing them from the appliance, as hot dishes may be sensitive to knocks. • Leave the dishes in the dishwasher for approx. 15 minutes after the end of the programme so that they dry better and can cool down. • First empty the lower basket, and then the upper basket. This will avoid any water that may be remaining in the upper basket, dripping onto the dishes in the lower basket and leaving water marks. Care and Cleaning Do not under any circumstances use furniture care products or aggres- Sive cleaners. • If necessaryr clean the controls only with a soft cloth and pure warm water. • Occasionally check the internal containers, door seal, and water inlet for soiling, clean if necessary. 28 ****** Page 29 ****** Cleaning the Filter The filters should be checked and cleaned regularly. Dirty filters will give poor wash results. 1. Open the door, remove the lower basket. 2. The dishwasher filter system com- prises a coarse/fine filter, microfilter and a flat filter. Unlock the filter sys- tem using the handle on the microfil- ter, and remove. 3. Turn the handle about 1/4 a turn anti- clockwise and remove. 4. Take hold of the coarse/fine filter (1/2) by the handle with the hole and remove from the microfilter (3) 5. Clean all filters thoroughly under running water. 6. Remove the flat filter (4) from the base of the washing compartment and clean both faces thoroughly 7. Put the flat filter back in the base of the washing compartment 8. Place the coarse/fine filter in the microfilter and press together. 9. Put the filter combination in place and lock by turning the handle clock- wise to the stop. During this process ensure that the flat filter does not protrude above the base of the wash- ing compartment. The dishwasher must not be used without filters under any circum- stances.

Built-Under Dishwasher (see enclosed installation instructions) Free-Standing Appliances can be set up as stand-alone without additional installation. If the dishwasher is set up next to a gas or coal cooker, a heat- insulating, non-flammable plate must be mounted between the dishwasher and the cooker, flush to the top edge of the work surface (depth 57.5 cm). The plate should have aluminium foil on the side fac- ing the cooker. 34 ****** Page 35 ****** Installation and Connection Instructions If the dishwasher is installed underneath a kitchen work surface, the original work surface of the dishwasher is to be removed as follows: 1. Unscrew the screws from the posi- tioning plates on the back (1). 2. Slide the appliance's work surface approx. 1 cm to the rear (2). 3. Lift the work surface at the front (3) and remove. 2 2 3 3 m If the dishwasher is later used as a free-standing appliance, the original work surface must be re-mounted. i The plinth on free-standing appliances is not adjustable. 35 ****** Page 36 ****** Installation and Connection Instructions Connecting the Dishwasher Water Connection The dishwasher is fitted with safety devices that prevent the wash water returning into the drinking water system and comply with the applicable plumbing regulations. • The dishwasher must be connected to a cold water supply. • The dishwasher must not be connected to open hot water appliances or instantaneous water heaters. Permitted water pressure Lowest permitted water pressure: 1 bar (—10 N/cm2 =100 kPa) Highest permitted water pressure: 10 bar (-100 N/cm2 -l MPa) Connect the inlet hose Consult your installer if the water pres- sure is less than 1 bar. In the case of a water pressure greater than 10 bar, a pressure reduction valve must be used (available from your dealer). The water inlet hose must not be kinked, crushed or entangled when it is being connected up. Connect the threaded hose fitting (ISO 228-1:2000) on the water inlet hose to a tap with an external thread (3/4 inch). The inlet hose is equipped either with a plastic or with a metal connection nut: Tighten plastic hose connection nuts by hand only. Metal hose connection nuts must be tightened using an appropriate tool. Finally, visually check that it is water-tight (ensure that the tap is not dripping). • In order that access to the tap in the kitchen is not limited by the use of the dishwasher, we recommend the installation of an additional tap, or fitting a two way adapter to the existing tap. • If you need a longer water inlet hose than that supplied, VDE approved complete hose sets are to be used. These are available from your local Service Force Centre. • Do not use, for connection, old hoses which have been used for another appliance. 36 ****** Page 37 ****** m Installation and Connection Instructions The following section is only applicable to dishwashers that have a safety valve on the threaded hose fitting for the tap: Water inlet hose with safety valve After connecting the double-walled water inlet hose, the safety valve is next to the tap. Therefore the water inlet hose is only under pressure while the water is running. If the water inlet hose starts to leak during this operation, the safety valve cuts off the running water and the draining pump in the dishwasher is switched on. Please take care when installing the water inlet hose: – The distance between the bottom edge of the safety value and the floor on which the dishwasher is standing must be at least 30 cm: – The electrical cable for the safety valve is in the double-walled water inlet hose. Do not immerse the water inlet hose or the safety valve in water. – If the water inlet hose or the safety valve is damaged, remove the mains plug immediately. – A water inlet hose with safety valve must only be replaced by your local Service Force Centre. min 30cm – Place the water inlet hose in such a way that it is never higher than the bottom edge of the safety valve. [Ifflll 37 ****** Page 38 ****** Installation and Connection Instructions Water drain Drain hose m The drain hose must not be kinked, crushed or entangled. • Connecting the drain hose: Maximum permitted height: 1 metre. Minimum required height 40 cm above the lower edge of the machine. Extension hoses • Extension hoses are available from AEG Service Force. The internal diameter of the extension hoses must be 19 mm to ensure that the function of the appliance is not impeded. • Hoses may be laid a maximum of 3 metres horizontally; the maximum permitted height for the connection for the drain hose is then 85 cm. Sink outlet connection 300 cm • The outlet of the drain hose (ø 19 mm) fits all commonly available sink outlet spigot types. The outer diameter of the spigot connection must be at least 15 mm. • The drain hose must be fixed to the sink outlet connection using the hose clamp supplied. If the dishwasher is fitted at a high position If the dishwasher is installed at a high level and the drainhose connec- tion is less than 30 cm from the bottom of the appliance, adapter kit ET 1 11099520 must be fitted. This is available from Customer Service. Discharging into a standpipe When discharging into a standpipe, the upright standpipe should have a minimum, length of 30 cm (12") from the bottom of the elbow to the top of the pipe (see diagram). Make sure that it is designed in such a way that the end of the drain hose cannot be covered with water. 38 Min 38mm (1.5") diameter standpipe ****** Page 39 ****** Installation and Connection Instructions Leak Prevention System For protection from damage due to water leaks, the dishwasher is equipped with a leak prevention systemr the AQUA CONTROL SYSTEM. In the event of a fault, the safety valve in the appliance immediately interrupts the inflow of water and the drain pump is activated. By this means water can neither escape nor overflow. The remaining water in the appliance is automatically pumped out. The leak prevention system also works when the appliance is switched off, the appliance must however not be disconnected from the mains. 39 ****** Page 40 ****** Installation and Connection Instructions Electrical Connection Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be car- ried out by a qualified electrician or competent person. WARNING This appliance must be earthed. The manufacturer declines any responsibility should these safety measures not be observed. Before switching on make sure the electricity supply voltage is the same as that indicated on the appliance rating plate. To isolate the dishwasher from the mains, remove the mains plug. Important: The plug must still be accessible after the appliance has been installed. Changing a fuse The appliance is supplied with a 13amp plug fitted. In the event of hav- ing to change the fuse in the plug supplied, a 13amp ASTA approved (BS 1363A) fuse must be used. Should the plug need to be replaced for any reasonr proceed as described below. The wires on the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following code. Blue Green and Yellow : Earth Blue Brown • Neutral : Live Green Et Yellow Brown Cord Clamp • The wire coloured green and yellow must be connected to the termi- nal marked with the letter "E" or by the earth symbol or coloured green and yellow. • The wire coloured blue must be connected to the terminal "N" or col- oured black. • The wire coloured brown must be connected to the terminal marked "L" or coloured red. • Upon completion there must be no cut, or stray strands of wire present and the cord clamp must be secure over the outer sheath. WARNING! A cut off plug inserted into a 13 amp socket is a seri- ous safety (shock) hazard. Ensure that, if it is necessary to cut off the plug, it is disposed of safely and not retained. 40 ****** Page 41 ****** Installation and Connection Instructions Connections The water inlet and drain hoses, as well as the mains cable must be connected beside the dishwasher as there is insufficient space behind the appliance.
