Settings Programme selection mode and user mode When the appliance is in programme selection mode it is possible to set a programme and to enter the user mode. Settings available in the user mode: • The level of water softener according to the water hardness. • Activation or deactivation of the acoustic signal for the end of a programme. • Activation or deactivation of the rinse aid empty notification. • Activation or deactivation of DryAssist. As the appliance stores the saved settings, there is no need to configure it before every cycle. How to set the programme selection mode The appliance is in programme selection mode when the programme indicator 50° Eco is on and the display shows the programme duration. When you activate the appliance, usually it is in programme selection mode. However, if this does not happen, you can set the programme selection mode in the following way: Press and hold simultaneously Eco and Auto until the appliance is in programme selection mode. Water hardness How to enter user mode Make sure the appliance is in programme selection mode. To enter user mode, press and hold simultaneously Eco and Auto until the indicators Delay, Eco, Auto and Intensive flash and the display is blank. The water softener The water softener removes minerals from the water supply, which would have a negative effect on the washing results and on the appliance. The higher the content of these minerals, the harder your water is. Water hardness is measured in equivalent scales. The water softener should be adjusted according to the hardness of the water in your area. Your local water authority can advise you on the hardness of the water in your area. It is important to set the right level of the water softener to assure good washing results. Softening hard water increases the consumption of water and energy as well as the programme duration. The higher the level of water softener, the higher the consumption and the longer the duration.

Hints and tips General Follow the hints below to ensure optimal cleaning and drying results in daily use and to help you protect the environment. • Remove larger residues of food from the dishes into the waste bin. • Do not pre-rinse dishes by hand. When needed, select a programme with a prewash phase. • Always use the whole space of the baskets. • Make sure that items in the baskets do not touch or cover each other. Only then can the water completely reach and wash the dishes. • You can use dishwasher detergent, rinse aid and salt separately or you can use the multi tablets (e.g. ''All in 1''). Follow the instructions on the packaging. • Select a programme according to the type of load and the degree of soil. 50° Eco offers the most efficient use of water and energy consumption. Using salt, rinse aid and detergent • Only use salt, rinse aid and detergent for dishwasher. Other products can cause damage to the appliance. • In areas with hard and very hard water we recommend to use plain dishwasher detergent (powder, gel, tablets containing no additional agents), rinse aid and salt separately for optimal cleaning and drying results. • At least once a month run the appliance with the use of appliance cleaner which is particularly suitable for this purpose. • Detergent tablets do not fully dissolve with short programmes. To prevent detergent residues on the tableware, we recommend that you use the tablets with long programmes. • Do not use more than the correct quantity of detergent. Refer to the instructions on the detergent packaging. What to do if you want to stop using multi-tablets Before you start to use separately detergent, salt and rinse aid do the following procedure. 1. Set the highest level of the water softener. 2. Make sure that the salt and rinse aid containers are full. 3. Start the shortest programme with a rinsing phase. Do not add detergent and do not load the baskets. 4. When the programme is completed, adjust the water softener according to the water hardness in your area. 5. Adjust the released quantity of rinse aid. 6. Activate the rinse aid empty notification. Loading the baskets • Only use the appliance to wash items that are dishwasher-safe. • Do not put in the appliance items made of wood, horn, aluminium, pewter and copper. • Do not put in the appliance items that can absorb water (sponges, household cloths). • Remove remaining food from the items. • Make soft the remaining burned food on the items. • Put hollow items (cups, glasses and pans) with the opening down. • Make sure that cutlery and dishes do not bond together.

Water connection Water inlet connection This appliance may be fed with either hot (maximum 60 °C) or cold water. Nevertheless we advise you use a cold water supply. A hot water supply is not always efficient with heavily soiled crockery as it shortens the washing programmes a lot. For making the connection itself, the coupling nut fitted to the appliance inlet hose is designed to screw onto a 3/4" gas thread spout or to a purpose made quick coupling tap such as the Press-block. The water pressure must be within the limits given in the ‘Technical data’. Your local Water Authority will advise you on the average mains pressure in your area. The water inlet hose must not be kinked, crushed, or entangled when it is being connected. The appliance features inlet and drain hoses which can be turned either to the left or the right to suit the installation by means of the locknut. The locknut must be correctly fitted to avoid water leaks. If the appliance is connected to new pipes or pipes which have not been used for a long time, you should run the water for a few minutes before connecting the inlet hose. This appliance has been fitted with safety features which will prevent the water used in the appliance from returning back into the drinking water system. This appliance complies with the applicable plumbing regulations. Caution! Do not use inlet and drain hoses which have previously been used on another appliance. Water drain connection The end of the drain hose can be connected in the following ways: • To the sink outlet spigot, securing it to the underside of the work surface. This will prevent waste water from the sink running into the appliance. • To a stand pipe provided with venthole, minimum internal diameter 4 cm. max. 850 mm max. 4000 mm min. 400 mm The drain hose can face either to the right or left of the appliance. Ensure the drain hose is not bent or squashed as this could prevent or slow down the discharge of water. The sink plug must not be in place when the appliance is draining as this could cause the water to syphon back into the appliance. If you use a drain hose extension, the internal diameter must be no smaller than the diameter of the hose provided. Likewise the internal diameter of the couplings used for connections to the waste outlet must be no smaller than the diameter of the hose provided. Our appliances are supplied with a security device to protect against the return of dirty water back into the appliance. If the spigot of your sink has a "no return valve" incorporated this can prevent the correct draining of your appliance. We therefore advise you to remove it. When connecting the drain hose to an under sink trap spigot, the entire plastic membrane (A)
Dishwasher User Manual 33 must be removed. Failure to remove all the membrane will result in food particles building up over time eventually blocking the appliance drain hose spigot. A 34 Dishwasher User Manual Electrical connection
