The service manual when downloaded and printed out was clear and easy to read. The manual is complete with the schematic diagram and technical data. I occasionally require a manual and now having registered with this company I shall order from them in the future.

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 the use of Finish Dishwasher Cleaner every 3 months or run a 65Â°C wash programme 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.
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.
Cleaning the filters
The filters must 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 filter (A), a microfilter (B) and a flat filter (C). Unlock the filter system using the handle on the microfilter, and remove.
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 upwards. 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.
3. Turn the handle about 1/4 a turn anticlockwise and remove.
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. Leave the door ajar to prevent the formation of any unpleasant smells. 3. Leave the inside of the machine clean.
4. Take hold of the coarse filter (A) by the handle with the hole and remove from the microfilter (B). 5. Clean all filters thoroughly under running water. 6. Remove the flat filter (C) from the base of the washing compartment and clean both faces thoroughly.
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.
Moving the machine
7. Put the flat filter (C) back in the base of the washing compartment. 8. Place the coarse filter (A) in the microfilter (B) 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. 15 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.
