Preparatlor:
for roadiri5
It is not necessary
to rinse dishes before
putting them into the dishwasher.
Just
remove large pieces and quantities of food and
bones. The filtering system helps keep food particles out of the wash water. Small particles are
flushed away as water is pumped out. Larger particles are trapped on the filter system screen. Refer
to “Dishwasher care 8 cleaning” on page 12 for
filter screen cleaning instructions.
Always load dishes so soiled surfaces are
reached by spray from rotating spray arm. Water
must be able to drain off completely for best drying
results. Be careful to separate items so spray can
reach all surfaces.

of detergent
to use
Use automatic

only.
Other detergents are too mild and much too sudsy
to work in the dishwasher.
Different brands of dishwasher detergent have
different amounts of phosphorus for softening
water. If water is hard and phosphorus content is
low (6.0% or less), you may need to use more
detergent or use a brand with a higher phosphorus
content (8.7% or higher).
Do not add detergent until you are ready to
wash. Fresh automatic
dishwasher
detergent
is necessary
for best washing results.
Store detergent tightly closed in a cool, dry place.
The detergent

The detergent dispenser has one section with a
cover and one without.
* Put detergent in both sections for Normal
Wash Cycle.
l
Put detergent in the covered section only for
Light Wash Cycle.
0 Push the cover down until it is latched.
Detergent in the open section falls into the dishwasher when the door is closed. The covered
section opens automatically when the main
wash starts.
NOTE: It is normal for cover to open partially
when dispensing detergent. The cover will open
fully when the door is opened.
HOW
Hard
kind
much detergent
to use
The amount of detergent to use depends on the
hardness of your water. If too little is used, dishes
won’t be clean. However, if too much is used in
soft water, glassware will begin to etch.
Find out your water’s hardness by asking your
local water department, water softener company
or county extension agent.
* HARD - Fill 1 or both sections to top line if water
hardness is 8 or more grains per gallon, or 136 or
more parts per million.
l
MEDIUM - Fill 1 or both sections to middle line if
water hardness is 5 to 7 grains per gallon, or 85
to 119 parts per million.
l
SOFT - Fill 1 or both sections to bottom line if
water hardness is 0 to 4 grains per gallon, or 0 to
68 parts per million.

And Rinse Aid
Rinse air.3 dispenser
A rinse aid helps keep water from forming droplets
and drying as spots. Keep the dispenser filled with
a rinse aid such as Jet-Dry.@ A small amount is
released automatically during the final rinse of
each cycle.
Check the dispenser periodically to see if it
needs refilling. An “E” will be visible inside dispenser when it is empty. Make sure dishwasher
door is fully open when refilling. Do not fill past the
smallest opening in the lower part of the dispenser.
If you overfill, excess rinse aid can come out. This
will not harm the dishwasher, but could cause
over-sudsing. Keep the dispenser fill cap tightly
closed.
ForBestResults
Hot waler
is a must
For best cleaning and drying results,
water should be at least 140°F (60%).
1. Turn on hot water faucet nearest the
dishwasher. Let water run until it is as
hot as possible.
2. Hold a candy or meat thermometer
in the stream of hot water to measure
the temperature.
3. If the temperature is too low, have a
qualified person raise the water heater
thermostat setting.
Quiet operating
tips
To avoid thumping and clattering noises during
operation:
* Make sure lightweight load items are secured
in the rack.
* Make sure pot lids and handles, pizza pans,
cookie sheets, etc. do not touch interior walls,
interfere with the spray arm rotation or cover
spray tower.
l
Load dishes so they don’t touch one another.
NOT E: Keep sink drain plugs inserted during
dishwasher operation to prevent noise transfer
through drains.
Special tips
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:
Aluminum:
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 manufacturer’s
cleaning instructions,
China: Check manufacturer’s recommendations,
Hand-painted, metal-trimmed, and antique china
fade due to high water temperatures and alkaline
detergent solution in the dishwasher,
NOTE: Delicate, antique items should not be
washed in the dishwasher,
TIPS: Load china 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.
NOTE: Delicate, antique items should not be
washed in the dishwasher.
TIPS: Load crystal 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 food 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 drshwasher.
This film is caused by reaction of silver with
chlorine in the detergent. Gold flatware is not
dishwasher
safe. The adhesive used In some
flatware with hollow handles is not heat resistant,
causing the handles to come off in the dishwasher.
Wash by hand.
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.
Cast iron utensils: The seasoned finish will be
removed in the dishwasher. Rusting will result.
TIPS: Wash by hand. To re-season, coat with
unsalted fat and heat in a slow oven for an
hour or two.
Plastics: Many plastics will have “Dishwasher
Safe” written on them. Some plastics are heat
sensitive and may melt or warp.
TIPS: If in doubt, try one piece. Place in
upper rack only. Air Dry Option provides
additional protection.
Non-stick
finish utensils:
Most can be washed
in the dishwasher.
TIPS: Follow manufacturer’s suggestions.
Wood: Many wooden items will crack and warp or
lose their finish.
TIPS: Do not wash cutting boards,
wooden salad bowls or knives with
wooden handles in the dishwasher.
Pewter or pewter-like
materials:
May streak,
discolor, and pit.
TIPS: To keep pewter at its very best, hand
wash with mild detergent.

Energy savtng tips
You can help save energy if you:
1. Wash full loads. Running a half-filled dishwasher uses the same amount of electricity and
hot water as a fully loaded machine.
2. Use the Light Wash Cycle for lightly
soiled loads. It uses less hot water and
energy than the Normal Wash Cycle.
3. Air dry dishes when you don’t need a
rapid drying cycle. Allow longer drying times
(overnight).
4. Load correctly
for best washing results.
Incorrect loading may cause poor washing and
the need to rewash all or part of the load.
5. Do not 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.
5. Use your dishwasher
during off-peak hours.
Local utilities recommend this to avoid heavy
usage of energy at certain times of day.

care & cleaning
Exterior - Regular use of a soft 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 may cause a white
film to build-up on the inside surfaces, especially
just beneath the door area. To clean dishwasher
interior:
? Apply powdered dishwasher detergent to a
damp sponge to make a paste.
OR
2. Use liquid automatic dishwasher detergent and
clean with damp sponge.
Wear rubber gloves. Do not use any type of
cleanser other than automatic dishwasher detergent because it may cause foaming or sudsing.
Filter Screen -The filter system requires
periodic cleaning as needed.
Personal
Injury Hazard
To clean screen:
1, Unload and slide bottom rack forward. (Remove
bottom rack if necessary to reach filter screen.)

Clogged drain air gap
Some plumbing codes require use of a drain air
gap between an undercounter
dishwasher and
the drain system of the house. The air gap is usually located above the sink or on the top of the
counter near the dishwasher to prevent the possibility of water backing up from the drain into the
dishwasher due to a plugged drain. The drain air
gap is not a part of the dishwasher and is not
covered by the dishwasher warranty. The drain air
gap should be kept clean to ensure proper draining of the dishwasher.
If YouNeedServiceOrAssistance
We suggestyou follow
these steps:
1. Beiore
calling
for assistance..
Performance problems often result from little
things you can find and fix yourself without tools
of any kind.
If your dishwasher
will not run, or stops
during a cycle:
c Is the door tightly closed and securely latched?
* Has the cycle been correctly set?
9 Is the water turned on?
* Have you checked your home’s main fuses or
circuit breaker box?
l
Is the dishwasher wired into a live circuit with the
proper voltage?
= If the motor has stopped because of an overload,
it will automatically reset itself within a few minutes If the motor does not start, call for service.
If dishwasher
won’t fill:
* Is overflow protector stuck in “up” position?
Overflow protector should move up and down
freely. Press down to release.
If water remains in the dishwasher:
. Has the cycle completed?
* A small amount of remaining water is normal.
@Is drain air gap clogged?
If detergent
remains in the covered
detergent
cup:
* Is the bottom rack in backwards? (The rack
bumpers should be at the front.)
* Is the dishwasher detergent fresh and dry
without lumps?
+ Is the cycle completed?
If white residue appears on front of
access panel:
* Is more detergent being used than needed? See
page 9 for recommended amounts of detergent.
* Some liquid detergents develop excess foam
and build up on exterior of access panel. Try a
different brand to reduce foaming and eliminate
build-up.
