This water is pumped

back
through the rotating spray arms. Soiled water is pumped
out and replaced
with clean
water during a cycle - the number of times depends
on the cycle being used.

It Is not necessary
to rinse dishes before

Just remove large pieces,
bones, and other hard
items.
The POWER
CLEAN Module
will
remove
food parti-
cles from the water. It contains a chopping
device which will reduce the size of food items.
If hard items such as fruit seeds, nuts and
egg shells enter the POWER CLEAN Module,
you might hear chopping,
