We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety messages. This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others. All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or “WARNING.” These words mean: DANGER WARNING You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately follow instructions. You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow instructions. All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed. W10240116A IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS WARNING: When using the dishwasher, follow basic precautions, including the following: ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Read all instructions before using the dishwasher. Use the dishwasher only for its intended function. Use only detergents or rinse agents recommended for use in a dishwasher, and keep them out of the reach of children. When loading items to be washed: 1) Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to damage the door seal; and 2) Load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce the risk of cuttype injuries. Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked “dishwasher safe” or the equivalent. For plastic items not so marked, check the manufacturer's recommendations. Do not touch the heating element during or immediately after use. To avoid electrical shock hazard, the sides and back must be enclosed and the front panels must be attached before electrical power is applied to the dishwasher. Refer to the installation instructions for proper grounding procedures. ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Do not tamper with controls. Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door, lid, or dish racks of the dishwasher. To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or on the dishwasher. Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not been used for such a period, before using the dishwasher turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame during this time. Remove the door or lid to the washing compartment when removing an old dishwasher from service or discarding it. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS ■ For a grounded, cord-connected dishwasher: The dishwasher must be grounded. In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for electric current. The dishwasher is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. WARNING: Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. ■ Check with a qualified electrician or service representative if you are in doubt whether the dishwasher is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the dishwasher; if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. For a permanently connected dishwasher: The dishwasher must be connected to a grounded metal, permanent wiring system, or an equipment-grounding conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the dishwasher. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS WARNING Tip Over Hazard Do not use dishwasher until completely installed. Do not push down on open door. Doing so can result in serious injury or cuts. 2 Quick Steps 1 Prepare and load dishwasher. 3 Select a cycle and option. 2 Add detergent for cleaning and rinse aid for drying. 4 Start dishwasher. Dishwasher Use STEP 1 ■ Make sure nothing keeps spray arm(s) from spinning freely. It is important for the water spray to reach all soiled surfaces. ■ Make sure that when the dishwasher door is closed no items are blocking the detergent dispenser. ■ Items should be loaded with soiled surfaces facing down and inward to the spray as shown. This will improve cleaning and drying results. ■ Avoid overlapping items like bowls or plates that may trap food. ■ Place plastics, small plates and glasses in the upper rack. Wash only plastic items marked “dishwasher safe.” ■ To avoid thumping/clattering noises during operation: Load dishes so they do not touch one another. Make sure lightweight load items are secured in the racks. ■ When loading silverware, always place sharp items pointing down. Mix some of the items having some pointing up and some items pointing down. Prepare and Load the Dishwasher IMPORTANT: Remove leftover food, bones, toothpicks and other hard items from the dishes. Remove labels from containers before washing. Rack loading Upper rack Lower rack Alternative rack loading Upper rack Lower rack 3 C ax 1 B 2 Hard Water Soft Water Soft Water 654 - - ■ Use automatic dishwasher detergent only. Add powder, liquid or tablet detergent just before starting a cycle. Hard Water - - - ■ A -- - NOTE: If you do not plan to run a wash cycle soon, run a rinse cycle. Do not use detergent. ll fi 3 Add Detergent NOTE: For most water conditions, the factory setting of 2 will give good results. If you have hard water or notice rings or spots, try a higher setting. Turn the arrow adjuster inside the dispenser by either using your fingers or inserting a flat-blade screwdriver into the center of the arrow and turning. m STEP 2 -- - - - PREWASH MAIN WASH STEP 3 Select a Cycle (cycles vary by model) A. Cover latch Fresh automatic B. Main Wash section C. Pre-Wash section dishwasher detergent results in better cleaning. Store tightly closed detergent container in a cool, dry place. The amount of detergent to use depends on: How much soil remains on the items - Heavily soiled loads require more detergent. The hardness of the water - If you use too little in hard water, dishes won't be clean. If you use too much in soft water, glassware will etch. Soft to Medium Water (0-6 grains per U.S. gallon) [typical water softener water and some city water] Medium to Hard Water (7-12 grains per U.S. gallon) [well water and some city water] ■ Depending on your water hardness, fill the Main Wash section of the dispenser as shown. Fill the Pre-Wash section to the level shown, if needed. NOTE: Fill amounts shown Hard Water are for standard powdered Hard Water Soft Water Soft Water detergent. Follow instructions on the package Main Wash Pre-Wash when using other dishwasher detergent. See “Cycle and Option Descriptions” charts in the following section. Heavier cycles and options affect cycle length. Some cycles and options will take up to 3¹⁄₂ hours to complete. ■ Add Rinse Aid Your dishwasher is designed to use rinse aid for good drying performance. Without rinse aid your dishes and dishwasher interior will have excessive moisture. The heat dry option will not perform as well without rinse aid. ■ Rinse aid keeps water from forming droplets that can dry as spots or streaks. It also improves drying by allowing water to drain off of the dishes after the final rinse. Full Add ■ Rinse aid helps to reduce excess moisture on the dish racks and interior of your dishwasher. ■ Check the rinse aid indicator. Add rinse aid when indicator drops to “Refill” level. ■ To add rinse aid, turn the dispenser cap counterclockwise and lift off. Pour rinse aid into the opening until the indicator window looks full. Replace the dispenser cap and turn clockwise. Make sure cap is fully locked. See “Cycle and Option Descriptions” charts in the following section. You can customize your cycles by pressing the options desired and press Start/Resume. STEP 4 Start or Resume a Cycle NOTE: For portable models, see the “Dishwasher Features” section for instructions on how to connect the water and electrical supply. ■ Run hot water at the sink nearest your dishwasher until the water is hot.

Split & Fit™ Utensil Basket Removable Upper Rack The split silverware basket can be separated and placed in various locations in the lower rack. Load flatware and utensils into both sections or just one, depending on your load. The removable rack allows you to wash larger items such as stock pots, roasters, and cookie sheets in the lower level rack. To split the basket: Hold the basket firmly along the sides. Unlock the baskets. Silverware basket lids: Use silverware basket lids to provide optimal spacing and best cleaning performance. IMPORTANT: Remove dishes prior to removing the upper rack from the dishwasher. To remove the rack (push tab rack stop): 1. Roll the rack ¹⁄₃ to ¹⁄₂ of the way out. 2. Remove each plastic push tab rack stop from the end of each track by pushing inward toward the rack on the ridged area of the rack stop. The rack stop will snap open and can be easily removed by pulling straight out. Be sure to support the track while removing rack stops. 3. Roll the rack all the way out of the track and remove from the dishwasher. To replace the rack: Reverse the above steps 1-3 to replace the rack into the dishwasher. Portable Dishwashers (on some models) Cup Clips The Cup Clips located in the center of the upper rack can be used to hold lightweight plastic items, cooking utensils and knives in place. Clip the item between the tine and the clip. WARNING Electrical Shock Hazard Stack-Rack Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Fold down the extra shelf on the right-hand side of the upper rack to hold additional cups, stemware or long items such as utensils and spatulas. Do not remove ground prong. Do not use an adapter. Do not use an extension cord. Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, fire, or electrical shock. SilverWare Blast™ Connecting the Faucet Adapter The SilverWare Blast is designed to focus cleaning power on your silverware. NOTE: A special adapter must be installed on the faucet before the dishwasher can be connected. Complete Installation Instructions and the adapter are packed with your dishwasher.

If your dishwasher has a stainless steel exterior, a stainless steel cleaner is recommended - Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish Part Number 31462. Clean the interior of the dishwasher, with a paste of powdered dishwasher detergent and water or use liquid dishwasher detergent on a damp sponge to clean the cooled-down interior. A white vinegar rinse may remove white spots and film. Vinegar is an acid, and using it too often could damage your dishwasher. Put 2 cups (500 mL) white vinegar in a glass or dishwasher-safe measuring cup on the bottom rack. Run the dishwasher through a complete washing cycle using an air-dry or an energy-saving dry option. Do not use detergent. Vinegar will mix with the wash water. If you have a drain air gap, check and clean it if the dishwasher isn't draining well. Storing the Dishwasher If you will not be using the dishwasher during the summer months, turn off the water and power supply to the dishwasher. In the winter, if the dishwasher could be exposed to near freezing temperatures or is left in a seasonal dwelling such as a second home or vacation home, avoid water damage by having your dishwasher winterized by authorized service personnel. Troubleshooting First try the solutions suggested here or visit our website and reference FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) to possibly avoid the cost of a service call. In the U.S.A., www.maytag.com In Canada, www.maytag.ca PROBLEM SOLUTION DISHWASHER DOES NOT RUN NOTE: It is normal for the dishwasher to repeatedly pause several times during a cycle. If the START/RESUME light is blinking, press START/RESUME and close the door firmly within 3 seconds. For fully integrated models (controls on top of console). Be sure the door is closed and latched. Be sure you have selected a cycle. (See “Cycles and Options Descriptions.”) Be sure there is power to the dishwasher. A circuit breaker or fuse may have tripped. If lights other than START/RESUME blink and the unit will not run, you will need to call for service. DETERGENT REMAINS IN THE DISPENSER OR TABLET IS ON BOTTOM OF TUB Check for dishware such as cookie sheets, cutting boards, or large containers, etc., that may be blocking the detergent dispenser from opening properly. CYCLE RUNS TOO LONG NOTES: Be sure your detergent is fresh and lump free. Be sure the cycle has completed (green light is on). If it has not completed, you will need to resume the cycle by pressing START/RESUME and closing the door within 3 seconds. ■ To use less water and reduce energy consumption you will encounter cycles that typically run for up to 3 hours. ■ A water heater setting of 120°F (49ºC) is best. The dishwasher will delay longer while heating cooler water. Some options will add time to the cycle. (See “Cycles and Options Descriptions” section.) The Heated Dry option adds ½ hour. Try the Insta Wash cycle. ■ Run the hot water at a faucet close to the dishwasher before starting the cycle. DISHWASHER NOT DRYING NOTE: Plastic and items with nonstick surfaces are difficult to dry because they have a porous surface which tends to collect water droplets. Towel drying may be necessary. Use of rinse aid along with the Heated Dry option is needed for proper drying. Use of the High Temp Wash option will improve drying results. Proper loading of items can affect drying. (See specific loading instructions within this guide.) Glasses and cups with concave bottoms hold water. This water may spill onto other items when unloading. ■ Unload the bottom rack first. ■ WILL NOT FILL Locate these items on the more slanted side of the rack for improved results. Be sure the water is turned on to the dishwasher. Check that the float is free from obstructions. Check for suds in the dishwasher. If foam or suds are detected, the dishwasher may not operate properly or may not fill with water. 9 PROBLEM SOLUTION WATER REMAINS IN THE TUB/ Be sure the cycle has completed (the green light is on). If the cycle has not completed, you will need WILL NOT DRAIN to resume the cycle by pressing START/RESUME and closing the door within 3 seconds. If dishwasher is connected to a food waste disposer, be sure the knockout plug has been removed from the disposer inlet. Check for kinks in the drain hose. Check for food obstructions in the drain or disposer. Check your house fuse or circuit breaker. HARD WATER (WHITE RESIDUE ON DISHWASHER INTERIOR OR GLASSWARE) NOTE: Extremely hard water mineral deposits can cause damage to your dishwasher and make it difficult to achieve good cleaning. A water softener is strongly recommended if your hardness is 15 grains or more. If a water softener is not installed, the following steps may help: Use a commercial cleaner designed for dishwashers once per month. Always use a rinse aid. Always use a high-quality, fresh detergent. Use a detergent booster/water softener additive designed for dishwashers. ODORS NOTE: If the dishwasher is not used daily, you can run a rinse cycle with the partial load daily until a full load is ready to run. Run a vinegar rinse through the dishwasher by putting 2 cups (500 mL) of white vinegar in an upright glass measuring cup in the lower rack. Run a normal cycle with the Heated Dry option turned off. Do not use detergent. The dishwasher may not be draining properly, see “WATER REMAINS IN THE TUB/WILL NOT DRAIN” in “Troubleshooting.” NOISY NOTES: ■ Surging sounds can occur periodically throughout the cycle while the dishwasher is draining. ■ Normal water valve hissing may be heard periodically. ■ A normal snap sound may be heard when the detergent dispenser opens during the cycle and when the door is opened at the end of the cycle. Improper installation will affect noise levels. Be sure the filters are properly installed. ■ A thumping sound may be heard if items extend beyond the racks and interfere with the wash arms. Readjust the dishware and resume the cycle. FOOD SOILS REMAIN ON DISHES Be sure the dishwasher is loaded correctly. Improper loading can greatly decrease the washing performance (see “Prepare and Load the Dishwasher”). Select the proper cycle and option for the type of soils. The Pots Pans cycle with the Hi Temp option can be used for tougher loads. Be sure the incoming water temperature is at least 120°F (49ºC). Use the proper amount of fresh detergent. More detergent is needed for heavier-soiled loads and hard water conditions. Scrape food from dishes prior to loading (do not prerinse). DID NOT SANITIZE If the sanitized light is blinking, the load is NOT sanitized. The cycle was interrupted in the final rinse, or your water heater is set too low. Set your water heater to 120ºF (49ºC). DAMAGE TO DISHWARE Improper loading can cause dishes to become chipped or damaged. (See specific loading instructions within this guide.) BLINKING LIGHTS If the START/RESUME light is blinking, press START/RESUME and close the door within 3 seconds. If the Clean light or any other lights are blinking and the dishwasher will not run, call for service. 10 PROBLEM SOLUTION CLOUDY OR SPOTTED DISHWARE (AND HARD WATER SOLUTION) NOTES: ■ Liquid rinse aid is necessary for drying and to reduce spotting. Use the correct amount of detergent. Confirm that the cloudiness is removable by soaking the item in white vinegar for 5 minutes. If the cloudiness disappears, it is due to hard water. Adjust the amount of detergent and rinse aid. See (“HARD WATER [WHITE RESIDUE ON DISHWASHER INTERIOR OR GLASSWARE]”) in “Troubleshooting.” If it does not come clear, it is due to etching (see below). ■ Be sure the incoming water temperature is set at 120°F (49ºC). Try using the Hi Temp and Sani Rinse options. To remove spotting, run a vinegar rinse through the dishwasher. ■ Wash and rinse the affected dishware and load into dishwasher. Remove all silverware and metal items. Put 2 cups (500 mL) of white vinegar in a glass measuring cup in the lower rack. Run a normal cycle with the Heated Dry option turned off. No detergent is needed. ETCHING (PERMANENT CLOUDINESS) This is an erosion of the surface of the glassware and can be caused by a combination of: water that is too hot, from using too much detergent with soft water or by pre-washing. Detergent needs food soil to act upon. If etching has occurred, the glassware is permanently damaged. To avoid further etching, adjust the detergent amount to match the water hardness, stop pre-washing, and use water heating options only when incoming water temperature is below 120°F (49ºC). LEAKING WATER Be sure dishwasher has been installed properly and is level. Suds can cause the dishwasher to overflow. Measure the detergent accurately and use only detergents designed for use in a dishwasher. Less detergent is needed in soft water. Try another brand of detergent if sudsing continues. To avoid rinse aid leaking from the dispenser, be sure the lid is securely attached and avoid overfilling. TUB IS DISCOLORED NOTES: ■ High iron content in the water can discolor the tub. Tomato-based foods can discolor the tub or dishware. A citrus-based cleaner can be used to clean. ■ 11 MAYTAG® MAJOR APPLIANCE WARRANTY LIMITED WARRANTY For one year from the date of purchase, when this major appliance is operated and maintained according to instructions attached to or furnished with the product, Maytag brand of Whirlpool Corporation or Whirlpool Canada LP (hereafter “Maytag”) will pay for factory specified parts and repair labor to correct defects in materials or workmanship.
