I purchased the unit from a private party and the original owners manual was not available. Having the ability to download it was extremely helpful and clarified operating the equipment immensely. This is a complicated unit and without the manual I would not have been able to maximize it's potential. Thank you.
Being a user of older radios of many kinds, preferring them over more modern rigs, this manual was invaluable in the programming of my two. I now know for certain what the assorted buttons functions are, and am very grateful to have found this excellent site. Many thanks for your assistance, Tony.
5 star quality on these downloadable manuals. Easy to read and all the information is there. A must when doing a custom install or needing to service your precious old school electronics.

Before using your dishwasher for the first time:
1. Ensure that the electrical and water connections comply with the installation instructions 2. Remove all packaging from inside the appliance 3. Set the water softener 4. Pour 1 litre of water inside the salt container and then fill with salt 5. Fill the rinse aid dispenser. 6. Run a "Rinse and Hold" programme.
Filling with salt
Attention! Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers. All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water softener. Only fill with salt just before starting a washing programme. This will prevent any grains of salt or salty water, which may have been spilled, remaining on the bottom of the machine, which may cause corrosion.
Setting the water softener
1. To fill with salt, unscrew the cap of the salt container. 2. Pour 1 litre of water inside the container (this is necessary only before filling with salt for the first time). 3. Using the funnel (if provided), pour in the salt until the container is full. Do not worry if water over flows from the unit when filling with salt, this is quite normal. 4. Replace the cap making sure that there is no trace of salt on the screw thread or on the gasket. 5. Screw on the cap tightly. The salt container will require topping up periodically. According to the model, an indicator reminds you when filling with salt: A) The salt cap has a refill indicator window in the centre. A green float is clearly visible when there is salt inside the container, and almost disappears when the salt has finished reminding you to add salt. B) A salt indicator light on the control panel will come on when the salt has finished.
The dishwasher is equipped with a water softener designed to remove minerals and salts from the water supply, which would have a detrimental or adverse effect on the operation of the appliance. The higher the content of these salts, the harder your water is. Water hardness is measured in equivalent scales, Clarke, French degrees and PPM (parts per Million). The 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. The dishwasher is factory set at level 2. If this level is not suitable for your area the softener should be adjusted. If your water is level 0 it is already soft and therefore there is no need to use salt. In this case adjust the water softener on level 1 without using salt. Water hardness Clarke degrees 0-6 7 - 14 15 - 28 29 - 42 43 - 56 57 - 63 French degrees (Â°TH) 0-8 9 - 20 21 - 40 41 - 60 61 - 80 81 - 90 PPM (Parts per Million) 0 - 80 81 - 200 201 - 400 401 - 600 601 - 800 801 - 900 Level 0 1 2 3 4 5 Use of salt NO YES YES YES YES YES

Only for dishwasher models with salt refill indicator light:
if the water softener has been adjusted on level 1 without use of salt, the salt refill indicator light on the control panel will always remain illuminated when the machine is switched on.
The salt indicator light on the control panel can remain illuminated for 2-6 hours after the salt has been replenished, assuming the dishwasher remains switched on. If you are using salts that take longer to dissolve then this can take longer. The function of the machine is not affected..
To adjust the water softener
With a screwdriver turn the selector on the upper front corner of the machine until the level required corresponds with the marker.
