Important safety instructions
Read all instructions
before using the
dishwasher.
. DISHWASHER MUST BE ELECTRICALLY
GROUNDED. Read the Installation Instructions
for details.
l Be sure your dishwasher
is installed on a level
floor that will hold the weight, and in an area
suitable for its size and use.
l When discarding
an old dishwasher, always
remove the door to prevent accidental
entrapment.
l REMEMBER, use your dishwasher
only for the
job it was designed
to do.
l Store dishwasher
detergent
in a cool, dry
place WHERE CHILDREN CAN’T REACH IT.
l Use ONLY detergents
and rinse aids recommended for use in a dishwasher.
l Locate
sharp items and knives so that they
are not likely to damage
door seal or cut
the user.
l DO NOT let children

dishwasher.
l
DO NOT reach into the area below the

cooled for at least 20 minutes.
l DO NOT wash
plastic items unless marked
“Dishwasher Safe” or the equivalent.
If not
marked, check manufacturer’s
recommendations.
l DO NOT use your dishwasher
unless all
enclosure panels are properly in place.
l DO NOT sit on, stand
on or abuse the dishwasher door or dish racks.
l DO NOT tamper

EXPLOSIVE. To prevent injury or damage,
before using your dishwasher,
turn on all
hot water faucets and allow water to run
for several minutes. This will allow gases to
escape. Do not smoke or use any open
flame near the faucet while it is open.

For best results
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 a level
slightly above the heating element. This water is constantly
pumped
through the rotating
spray arm and center wash tower onto the dishes. Soiled water is pumped out and replaced
with clean water during a cycle. The number of times depends
on the cycle being used.
Loud dishes so soiled surfaces face the powerful
spray from rotating arm and center
wash tower.
Preparing
the load for washing
It is not necessary
to rinse dishes before putting them
dishwasher.
Just remove large pieces and quantities
and bones. Foods that are burned onto utensils (not just
on] may be difficult to remove. Some hand washing
necessary
into the
of food
cooked
may be
Water must be hot
140 F
Cl
For best cleaning
and drying results, water should be at least
140-F (60 C].
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

The detergent
dispenser
has four cups.
Cups 2 and 4 hold detergent for the first wash.
The covered cups 1 and 3 hold detergent for
the second wash.
. To open or close the covered cups, grasp
the tabs and pull or push. After filling, close
the cups before
shutting the dishwasher door.
The covered cups open
automatically
when the
main wash starts. Detergent in the open cups falls
into the dishwasher when

too mild and much too
sudsy to work in the
dishwasher.
Different

NORMAL WASH Cycle
A double wash for normal to heavily
soiled
loads. (The Energy Guide
Label data is based on this cycle.)
Cycle time is about 70 minutes.
LIGHT WASH Cycle
For lightly soiled or pre-rinsed loads.
Cycle time is about 60 minutes.
RINSE & HOLD Cycle
For rinsing a few items to be washed
one or more days later. Cycle time is
about 15 minutes. Use AIR DRY only.
HEAT
DRY or AIR DRY?
If the HEAT DRY Option is selected, air In the
dishwasher
is heated during the “dry” part of
the cycle.
If the AIR DRY Option is selected, air in the
dishwasher is not heated. Using this option helps
save energy, but dishes take longerto dry [overnight] and some water spotting
may result
To add a dish after starting
1. To be sure the added
item is washed and
rinsed, make sure the Cycle Control Knob has
not passed LIGHT WASH.
2. Unlatch the door to stop the cycle, but don’t
open it until the spray arm stops spinning.
3. Open the door and add the dish.
Some Items (such as plastics)
drying
may need towel
4. Close the door. Do not latch it. Wait 30 seconds for air in the dishwasher to warm up. This
helps reduce theamountofmoisturethatcan
come from the vent when restarting
the
cycle.
5. Latch the door. The dishwasher will start from
where it stopped.

Energy saving tips
You can help save energy
if you:
1. Wash full loads. Runnrng o half-filled
dishwasher uses the same amount of electrrcity
and hot water as a fully loaded machine
2. Use the LIGHT WASH Cycle for moderately
soiled loads. It uses less hot water and energy
than NORMAL WASH.
3. Air dry dishes

5. Don’t pre-rinse
