Smeg ADP8242 Dishwasher User Manual

Cleaning and Maintenance 1
Cleaning the Appliance
Make sure that the appliance is disconnected from the electrical mains.
The outside surfaces and the inside of the door of the dishwasher must be cleaned regularly
with a soft, damp cloth.
Never use abrasive or acid detergents.
The door seals must be cleaned with a damp sponge. The outside of the appliance may be
cleaned with a normal detergent for painted surfaces.
Cleaning the Water Intake Filter
Clean the filter at the appliance water inlet connection periodically. Turn off the tap, unscrew the
end of the water filler hose, remove the black filter and clean it gently under a jet of running
water, then replace the filter and screw the hose back in place.
Cleaning the Spray Arms
The spray arms can easily be removed to allow periodic cleaning of the nozzles and prevent
any clogging. To remove the top arm, unscrew the retainer ring-nut; the bottom arm will simply
pull off after releasing the two catches. Wash them thoroughly under a jet of water.
Cleaning the Filter Unit
The central filter should be removed for inspection periodically and cleaned if necessary. To
remove it, press the tangs lightly, turn anticlockwise and lift out. Remove the central filter by
pushing from below and separate it from the microfilter; then extract the central plastic filter
from its seat. The rectangular filter can now be just lifted out.
Clean filters in running water using a stiff brush.
It is essential to clean filters carefully as instructed above, as the dishwasher cannot operate
with a fouled filter.
Users must also take care to replace the cleaned filters correctly, to avoid damage to the
washing pump.
