Your dishwasher
cleans by spraying
a mixture of hot, clean water and detergent
against

started, the dishwosher
fills with waterto about

This water is
pumped
through
the rotating
spray arms,
drained
through
the filter system which removes
food and SOII, and pumped
back
through the rotating spray arms. Soiled water
is pumped
out and replaced
with clean water
during a cyclethe number of times depends
on the cycle being used.

Use automatic

only.
Other detergents
are
too mild and much too

to work
in the
dishwasher.
Different

have different
amounts
of phosphorus.
Phosphorus softens
water
and
helps
prevent

spots on dishes.
If water
is hard and

content
is
low (8.7% or less), you

Energy saving tips
You can help save energy
if you:
1. Wash full loads. Running a half-filled
drshwasher uses the same amount of electricity
and hot water as a fully loaded machine.
2. Use the LIGHT WASH Cycle
for normally
soiled loads. It uses less hot water and energy
than other wash cycles.
3. Air dry dishes

times
5. Don’t pre-rinse
normally
soiled dishes. Select the correct cycle for the load and use
the recommended
amount of detergent
for
good washing results without hand rinsing.
6. Use your dishwasher
during off-peak hours.
Local utilities
recommend
this to avoid
heavy usage of energy at certain times of
day
7. Kitchen cleanup
can be done quickly and
efficiently through the use of your dishwasher.
Most appliance
parts that can fit in the dishwasher can be cleaned
by it. Burned-on soil,
however, should be cleaned
by hand.

Special tips on dishwasher use
Remember,
use your dishwasher
only for the job it was designed
to do.
Some items are not dishwasher
safe or may require special care.
Read these special tips for the following
items:
hUlliUUlTl:
Aluminum loses its bright, shiny appearance
and darkens in color due to
minerals in the water and the alkalinity of the dishwasher detergent. Colored aluminum may
fade
TIPS: If washed in the dishwasher
avoid placing directly in front of detergent
dispenser
where it could be sprinkled with undissolved
detergent,
causing spotting, pitting, and
discoloration
Follow utensil manufacturers’
Cleaning inStrUCtiOnS.
China: Hand-painted, metal-trimmed, and antique china may fade due to high water
temperatures
and alkaline detergent
solution in the dishwasher.
TIPS: Delicate,
antique items should not be washed in the dishwasher.
Load carefully.
Do not allow pieces to touch each other. Test one piece by washing
it daily in the
dishwasher for several weeks. Then compare
it with the rest of the set to see if colors have
changed
crystal
and decorative glasses:
Crystal can break from sudden exposure to high
water temperature.
Metal trim and colorful decoration
on glass will fade in time when
washed in the dishwasher
TIPS: Delicate,
antique items should not be washed in the dishwasher.
Load carefully
in top rack only. Be sure to load a few larger items in the bottom rack to reduce amount of
force of water spray reaching glassware
from lower spray arm. Use the shortest cycle.
Flatware:
Salty and acidic foods may tarnish silver and stainless flatware if allowed to
remain on the utensils. A film may form on sterling silver and silver plate items washed in a
dishwasher
This film is caused by reaction of silver with chlorine
in the detergent.
Gold
flatware
is not dishwasher
safe.
TIPS: Rinse flatware as soon as possible, especially
if it is not to be washed right away.
Dishwasher detergent
may remove antique finishes. Wash by hand. Tarnish and film
build-up can be removed with silver polish.

materials: May streak, discolor, and pit.
TIPS: To keep pewter at its very best, hand wash with mild detergent.
Dishwasher care & cleaning:
Exterior - Regular use of a sofi damp cloth or sponge
and a mild detergent is all that is necessary, in most cases,
to keep the outside of your dishwasher nice looking and
clean Interior - Hard water minerals rnay cause a
white film to build-up on the inside surfaces,
especially
just beneath the door area.
Wear rubber gloves when cleaning
the dishwasher interior. Do not use
any type of cleanser
other than
dishwasher
detergent
because
it may cause foaming or
sudsing.
