Important safety instructions
This manual does not cover all possible
conditions and situations that may occur.
Common sense and caution should always
be used when installing, operating, and
maintaining any appliance.
• Read all instructions before using the
dishwasher.
• Dishwashers must be electrically grounded.
Read the Installation Instructions for
details.
• Use the dishwasher only for its intended
purpose.
• Do not run the dishwasher while you are
out of the home.
• Use only automatic dishwasher detergents
and rinse agents.
• To reduce the risk of injury, keep detergents
and rinse aids out of the reach of children.
• Do not load sharp items near the door; you
could damage the door seal.
• Place sharp knives in the silverware basket
with the sharp ends down to avoid the risk
of cut-type injuries.
• Do not wash plastic items unless they
are marked “dishwasher safe” or the
equivalent. For items not marked, check
the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Items not dishwasher safe could become
deformed or melt and create a potential fire
hazard.
• Do not touch the heating element during or
imediately after use.
• Do not operate the dishwasher unless all
enclosure panels are properly in place (i.e.,
guard plate, access panel, toe kick, etc.)
• Do not tamper with controls by removing or
changing.
• Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the
dishwasher door or baskets .
• To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow
children to play in or on a 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 two weeks, 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.
4
• When removing an old dishwasher from
service or discarding it, remove the door
to the washing compartment.
• Do not store or use combustible materials,
gasoline, or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
• Disconnect the electrical power to the
dishwasher before servicing.
• Repairs should be done by a qualified
technician.

Child safety
Child safety tips
Dishwasher detergents and rinse aids are
corrosive, so always keep them out of reach
of children.
• Should a child swallow dishwasher detergent or rinse aid, give plenty to drink immediately, i.e., one or two glasses of milk or
water. Do not try to induce vomiting. Seek
medical advice immediately: Call the National Capital Poison Center at 1-800-222-1222
• Always close the door and start the dishwasher as soon as you put in the detergent.
• Always keep small children away from
the machine when it is open. There may
be some detergent residue left inside the
machine.
• If dishwasher detergent gets in someone’s
eyes, rinse them with plenty of water for at
least 15 minutes.
• Do not allow children to use or play in or
on the dishwasher.
• Load all long and sharp items in the knife/
utensil basket. If this is not possible, load
sharp objects with the pointed end facing
the back of the dishwasher. Sharp items
loaded in the silverware basket should be
loaded with pointed ends down.
• Engage the child safety lock.
Engaging the Child Safety Lock
This model has a child safety lock on the left of
the door handle. To activate the lock, press in
the door handle and use a screwdriver to turn
the screw slot to a vertical position. Reset it by
turning the slot to its horizontal position.
To open the door when the safety lock is
engaged, press the white plastic tab located
to the left of the door handle toward the left
and hold it as you lift the door handle. (See
illustration at below.)

Basic Course
Below are step-by-step instructions to help you
achieve the best possible dishwashing results.
Load the baskets correctly!
Thanks to Self Cleaning System, you
do not need to rinse the dishes under
running water. Simply remove large food
particles and debris. Convenient and environmentally-friendly!
Place glasses, cups, bowls, side plates, and
saucers in the upper basket. Wine glasses
should be hung from or leaned against the
wine glass shelf and knives placed in the knife
stand if present.
The cutlery basket has a folding flap in the
middle for small items or narrow shafts,
such as electric whisks.
Place long cutlery and carving knives in the
special knife box (if present) or in the upper
basket.
Check that the spray arms are able to
move freely.
See the section entitled Fragile Dishes if you
want to wash objects that may be fragile.
Note!
Ensure that all soiled surfaces face inwards
or downwards!
Place dinner plates, side plates, serving
dishes, saucepans, and cutlery (in the cutlery basket) in the lower basket. The removable plate insert, which comes with certain
models, can be easily removed to provide
room for large plates, saucepans, and pots, or
placed in three alternative positions.
Stand the cutlery with handles downward
and as spread out as possible. Ensure that
spoons are not resting inside each other.
Dishwashing detergent
We recommend that you use
only unscented, granular automatic dishwashing detergent. Using the wrong detergent could cause flooding and/or damage
your dishwasher. Do not use detergent that
has been wet and is clumped. Also, check
the expiration date on the container.
The amount of detergent needed can vary
due to differences in water hardness. To
determine the water hardness in your area,
contact your local water utility or area water
softening company. The harder the water,
the more detergent you may need. Refer to
the chart below for the recommended detergent amounts based on water hardness.
Remember, you should adjust the amount
of detergent you use by small amounts
until you find the correct amount.
Do not put cutlery made of different materials - such as silver and stainless steel - in
the same compartment (risk of stains).
Customer Care Center
1-800-898-1879
www.askousa.com
9
Twelve grains and higher is extremely hard
water and detergent alone may not be
enough. You may need to use a water softener to maximize the performance of your
dishwasher. Also, in areas with hard water
(9+) you may need to wash at lower temperatures to prevent hard water deposits from
forming in tank and wash system.
In hard water areas, both the dishes and
the machine can develop a white or gray
film after a while. This can be removed by
replacing the prewash detergent with two
tablespoons of citric acid. If the water is very
hard, use a rinse aid that contains citric acid.
Different brands of dishwasher detergent
have different amounts of phosphorous for
softening water. If you have hard water and
use a detergent with less than 8.7% phosphorous content, you may need to use more
detergent or use a detergent with more than
8.7% phosphorous content.
NOTE:
We recommend that you do not add prewash detergent for the Quick wash programs.
NOTE:
If you use a dishwashing detergent with
a rinse aid additive, you should not fill the
rinse aid dispenser. This could cause a film
on your dishes.
Dishwasher tablets
Halve the tablet if it is difficult to close the
dispenser cover. There is a risk that the
dishwasher detergent will not break down
properly to give the correct dosage if the
cover is tight and cannot be opened correctly.
3-in-1/ Multi-purpose detergent
Note!
Read the directions for use for such products
carefully. If anything is unclear, contact the
detergent manufacturer.

Fragile dishes
A number of household goods are not suitable for machine washing. This can be due
to a variety of reasons. Certain materials
cannot withstand intense heat; others can
be damaged by the dishwasher detergent.
Fragile decoration
China with decoration on top of the glaze
(the goods have a rough feel) should not be
machine washed.
Plastic
Certain types of plastic cannot withstand
the high temperature generated in machine
dishwashing.
Protect plastic goods
Select a program with a low temperature.
Crystal/ glass
Place the goods so that they do not knock
together during the wash. Use the lowest
possible wash temperature and the shortest
possible program. Do not heat dry! Antique
and very fragile items should not be machine washed.
Glass which is machine washed at high
temperatures can in time develop a grey film
which cannot be removed. Wash fine glass
at the lowest temperature and with a low
dosage of dishwasher detergent.
Silver
Silver and stainless steel items should not
come into contact with each other as the
silver can discolor.
Cutlery with glued handles
Certain types of adhesive cannot withstand
machine washing. In such cases the handles can come loose.
Wood
Wooden items should only be machine
washed if they are labeled as dishwasher
safe.
Aluminum
Aluminum can be dulled by machine washing. However, good quality aluminum saucepans can be machine washed, although a
reduction in luster should be expected.

Cleaning
Spray arm
The dishwasher’s inner container is made of
stainless steel and is kept clean through normal use. However, if you have calciferous
(hard) water, lime deposits can form in the
dishwasher. In this case, run a normal wash
program with two tablespoons of citric acid
in the dishwasher detergent compartment.
Coarse filter
Fine filter

If you still cannot start the machine and a
humming noise can be heard, then the overfilling protection has been activated.
• Shutoff the water
• Remove the plug from the wall socket
• Call Service
CAUTION!
Do not forget to replace the small pump access plug.
Spray arms
The holes and bearings can occasionally
become clogged.
1. Pull the lower spray arm straight up to
release it.
2. Scrape away the debris with a needle or
similar. The spray arms also have holes on
the underside.

Door
When cleaning the edge around the door,
use only a slightly damp cloth, possibly with
a little detergent. Do not use a spray bottle
or similar around the door catch. This is to
ensure that water does not penetrate into
the door catch and come into contact with
the electrical components.
CAUTION!
Do not use a spray bottle or similar around
the door catch.
Tip!
In order to prevent bad odours in the dishwasher, clean the strips and corners with a
dish brush and low-lather detergent.

Rinse aid
Adding rinse aid
In some cases, drying can be made more efficient by using rinse aid.
To fill with rinse aid:
1. Turn and lift up the cover of the rinse aid
compartment to the right of the dispenser.
This is where you top up and set the amount
of rinse aid to be dispensed in each wash.
2. Carefully pour in rinse aid up to the dosage setting knob.
Alter dosage if required. Do not forget to
close the cover.
Machines with refill indicator
There is a refill indicator in the middle of the
dispenser (see illustration). If the refill indicator is totally black, there is sufficient rinse
aid. However, if the indicator has a more
transparent appearance, you need to fill up
with rinse aid (see above).
Select dosage
The dispenser is usually set at 1= soft water.
However, depending on the water hardness,
you may need to change the dosage.
Open the rinse aid cover. Here you will find
the dispenser’s adjustment dial. Settings 1-6:
the harder the water, the higher the dosage.
When the water hardness exceeds 3 grains,
you should use rinse aid with citric acid (acid
rinse aid).
Too much rinse aid can lead to the buildup of foam. If your water is particularly soft,
you can dilute the rinse aid (1 part rinse aid,
1 part water).
Too much rinse aid can cause streaks on
the dishes, while too little can result in water
stains.
