Recommendations
Place all items on racks so they are separated
and face the center to insure the water spray
will reach the soiled surfaces, Do not allow
items to extend
out of the racks.
Ma.ke sure the movement
of the upper
and
lower spray arms is not blocked by items
hanging below the lower rack or tail articles

Dishes
* It is not necessary to rinse dishes before
placing them in your Maytag dishwasher.
Simply serape offbones and large pieces of
food. The food disposer in your dishwasher
can handle a variety of items such as pits, fruit
seeds, popcorn and toothpicks. These items
will be chopped into small pieces during drain
and removed with the drain water. If hard
items get into the dishwasher module, you
may hem" chopping noises during drain. These
sounds are normal.
Insure
in
the free flow of water to the detergent
cup by not blocking
it with large items.
Larger, flat, lightweight items (such as plastic
covers) may be wedged next to the silveIware
basket or along the sides and back of the racks.
The wash tower rises through the center of the
lower rack dnring the cycle. For the best
cleaning results, avoid blocking it or loading
tai! articles next to it.
• Foods that have been burned onto cooking
utensils will need to be scraped or soaked.
• Certain foods, such as mustard, mayonnaise,
lemon juice, vinegar, salt or dressings may
cruise stainless steel flatware to rust and pit if
allowed to remain in contact with the surface
for a period of time. Therefore, it is best to
rinse these food soils off stainless steel flatware
unless the dishwasher is to be operated soon
after loading.
• If your dishwasher drains into a food waste

of cups, juice glasses, and other short items.
Load small diameter items under shelf so water
will reach upper tier. When the shelf is folded
up, this area can be used for taller glasses,
stemware, etc.
The rack is designed so dishes can be centered
behind a single fine and held in plac_ by the
ra&_ support wires. Dishes can also be !oaded at
an angle to maximize space.
When loading glassware, leave a small space
between each piece so they do not touch each
other during the wash cycle. Do not place
glasses over the tines.
