The upper rock is for glosses, cups and saucers.
This is also o secure place for dishwasher-safe
plastics. A cup shelf mog be placed in the up

is good for oil kinds of odd-shaped utensils.
Saucepans, mixing bowls and other items should
be placed face down.
Upper Rack

Secure larger dishwasher-safe plastics over two
tines when possible.
Make sure small plastic items are secure so they
can't foil onto the heater.
Be sure that items do not protrude through the
bottom of the rack and block rotation of the
middle sprobl arm. This could result in poor wash
performance for items in the upper rack.
Lower
Rack
When loading the lower rack, do not load large
platters or trays in the front left corner. They may
prevent detergent from circulating during the wash
cycle,
The lower rock is best used for plates, saucers
and cookwore. Large items should go along the
sides. Load plotters, pots and bowls along the
sides, in corners or in the back. The soiled side
of items should face the center of the rock.
Be careful not to let a portion of anbl item, such as
a pot or dish handle, extend through the bottom
rack. This could block the wash arm and cause
poor washing results.

The silverware basket may be used without

Without the Topper
Put the flatware in the removable basket with fork
and knife handles up to protect your hands. Place
spoons in the basket with handles down. Mix
knives, forks and spoons so they don't nest
together. Distribute evenly. Small plastic items,
such as measuring spoons and lids from small
containers, should go in the bottom of the
silverware basket with silverware on top.
With the Topper
Place small plastic items, such as measuring
spoons and lids from small containers, in the

Cleaning the Door Panel
Before cleaning the front panel, make sure you
know what type of panel you have. Refer to the
last two letters of your model number. You can
locate your model number on the left-hand tub
wall just inside the door. If your model number
ends with SS,then you have a Stainless Steel door
panel.
Follow the instructions below for cleaning the door
panel for your specific model.
Stainless Steel Door Panel (model numbers
ending in SS)
The stainless steel panels can be cleaned with
Stainless Steel Magic or a similar product using a
clean, soft cloth. Do not use appliance wax, polish,
bleach or products containing chlorine on
Stainless Steel doors.
You can order Stainless Steel Magic #WXlOX15
through GE Parts by calling 800.626.2002.
Cleaning the Control Panel
To clean the control panel, use a lightly
dampened cloth; then dry thoroughly. Do not use
sharp objects, scouring pads or harsh cleaners on
the control panel.

Care and Cleaning
Dishwasher
Sprag
Arms and
Filters
The dishwasher will flush away all normal food
soils. However, objects (fruit pits, bones, etc.) may
collect in openings and should be removed
occasionally to avoid clogging the drain system.
CAUTION:
Personal injury hazard.
Before cleaning the interior, wait at least 20
minutes after a cycle for the heating element
to cool down. Failure to do so could result in
burn injuries.
Cleaning the Spray Arms
Because hard water chemicals will clog the spray
arm jets and bearings, it is necessary to clean
the spray arms regularly. To remove the spray
arm, twist the retaining nut 90 degrees and pull
the spray arm off the shaft.
Wash the arms in soapy, warm water and use a
soft brush to clean the jets. Replace them after
rinsing thoroughly.
Cleaning the Filters
For best performance and results, the filter
assembly must be cleaned regularly. The filter
efficiently removes food particles from the wash
water, allowing water to be recirculated during
the cycle. For this reason, it is a good idea to
remove the large food particles trapped in the
filter frequently by rinsing the main filter and cup
under running water. To remove the filter
assembly, pull up on the cup handle. The entire
filter assembly should be cleaned at least once a
month. To clean the main filter and fine filter, use
a cleaning brush. Then, reassemble the filter
parts as shown in the illustration and reinsert the
entire assembly in the dishwasher, positioning it
in place and pressing downward. The dishwasher
must never be used without the filters. Improper
replacement of the filter may reduce the
performance level of the appliance and may
damage dishes and utensils.
