POWER CLEAN* Washing System
Your dishwasher
cleans by spraying
a mixture of hot, clean water and detergent
against soiled surfaces of dishes. When a cycle is started, the dishwasher
fills with water
to about the level of the heating
element.
This water is pumped
through the rotating
spray arm&through
the POWER CLEAN Module which removes food particles, and 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.
The POWER CLEAN* Module
removes
particles
from the water, stores them,
washes them down the drain.

for washing
It Is not necessary
to rlnse dlshes before
putting them Into the dlshwasher.
Just remove
large pieces, bones, and other hard items. The
POWER CLEAN’ Module will remove food particles 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,
grinding,
crunching
or
buzzing sounds. Those sounds are normal when
hard items enter the module.
DO NOT LET
METALLIC ITEMS (I.E. POT HANDLE SCREWS)
GET INTO THE POWER CLEAN* MODULE. THIS
COULD RESULT IN DAMAGE TO THE POWER
CLEAN* MODULE.
Hot water is a must
Hot water dissolves and activates
the dishwashing detergent.
Hot water dissolves grease
on dishes and helps dry glasses spot-free. Make
certain loads are washed in hot water (at least
140°F - 60°C). Two ways to have a reliable hot
water supply...
1. Maintain 140°F water supply at central water
heater. To check water temperature,
turn on
hot water faucet nearest the dishwasher,
Let
water run until it is as hot as possible,
then
check with a candy or meat thermometer.
If
the temperature
is too low, have a qualified
person raise the water heater thermostat
setting.
2. Use HI-TEMP WASHING Option. If water heating
is needed, a thermostat will delay the cycle
until temperature
reaches
145°F (63°C). If
water is hot enough, the cycle will proceed
with no delay. This lets you turn down your
water heater, if you choose, without cutting
back on hot water needed
for good dishwashing.
Quiet operating tips
To avoid thumping and clattering
noises during
operation:
l Make
sure lightweight
load items are secured
in the rack.
l Make

Energy saving 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 LOW ENEROY WASH Cycle whenever
possible.
It uses less hot water and energy
than other wash cycles.

Special tips on dishwasher use
Remember,
use your dishwasher
only for the job lt was deslgned
to do.
Some items are not dlshwasher
safe or may require special care.
Read these special tips for the followlng
Items:
AhUllillUIIK
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,
antlque 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.
CrJ’Std
and decorative &SSeS:
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

Caring for
simulated wood top
The simulated
wood top can be used as a
utility work surface for most kitchen jobs. It is
stronger and more easily cleaned
than genuine wood.
The top can be used as a cutting board. Knife
marks will be visible but will not seriously damage top. Hot items from the oven can be placed
on the top.
Clean with warm, soapy water. For dried on
foods, use a scouring pad.
If you need service or assistance, we suggest
YOU follow these four stem:
1. Before 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:
l Is the
door tightly
closed
and securely
latched?
l Has the
cycle been correctly
set?
l Is the water
turned on?
l Have
you checked
your home’s main fuses or
circuit breaker box?
l Is the power
supply cord plugged
into a live
circuit
with the proper
voltage
(portable
models]?
l 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 your dishwasher
seems to run too long:
l Are you
using POTS & PANS Cycle or HI-TEMP
WASHING Option? The dishwasher
may be
waiting for the water to heat.
l Is your
household
water temperature
set too
low? Low water temperature
settings
will
cause longer dishwasher
operating
times.
it water remains in the dishwasher:
l Has the cycle
completed?
l A small
amount of remaining
water is normal.
l
Is drain air gap clogged?
if detergent
remains in the covered detergent
cup:
l Is the
bottom rack in backwards?
(The rack
bumpers should be at the front.]
l Is the dishwasher
detergent fresh?
l Is the cycle
completed?
if you hear grinding, grating, crunching,
buzzIng sounds:
. A hard object
has probably
entered
the
POWER CLEAN Module.
The sound should
stop when the object is ground up.
