Very comprehensive document which is a must-have for any Satellit 2100 owner whose set up is somewhat intricate. Due to the bad quality of the pictures that are rather dark and a bit blurred I gave 4-star feedback.
The manual was missing 2 pages but when I presented the problem to the company they made every attempt to get the 2 pages to me, when they couldn't they refunded my money. A very pleasing and easy transaction. The manual they provided was the original, it was concise and to the point. I plan to do business with this company again when should the need arise.
The owners manual is very good. all my how to questions were answered in detail.

Maintenance and cleaning
Ensure that the seals around the door, the detergent and rinse aid dispensers are cleaned regularly with a damp cloth. We recommend the use of Finish Dishwasher Cleaner every 3 months or run a 65Â°C wash without dishes using detergent. Regular use of Finish Dishwasher Cleaner cleans inaccessible parts, eliminates unpleasant food odours and helps prevent the build-up of limescale.
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....).
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.
Cleaning the central filter
(After each wash) Inspect the central filters (B) and (C) and remove any scraps of food with a brush, under running water. Filters (B) and (C) are both removed by lifting up the outer one (B) (pulling the central funnel upwards); the smaller filter (C) can be removed by pressing the two tongues (D).

Avoid placing the machine in a location where the temperature is below 0Â°C. If this is unavoidable, empty the machine, close the appliance door, disconnect the water inlet pipe and empty it.
Once cleaned, refit the filters by pressing them down until they click into place.
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.
Cleaning the large filter
(Every week) Clean the large filter (A) on both sides under running water, using a brush. To take it out, remove the spray arm by pressing the two tongues (E), turn the ring (F) anticlockwise and then slide the whole part out. Refit the filter following the above instructions in reverse order.

The dishwasher must not be used without filters. Incorrect repositioning and fitting of the filters will produce poor washing results. Cleaning the filters is vital to ensure correct operation of the machine.
