POWER CLEAN”’ Washing System
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 about the level of the heating
element.
This water is pumped
through the rotating
spray arms, through the POWER CLEAN Module which removes food particle&and
back
through the rotating spray arms. Soiled water is pumped
out and replaced
with clean
water during a cycle - the number of times depends
on the cycle being used.
The POWER CLEAN* Module
removes
food
particles
from the water, stores them, then
washes them down the drain.
Load dishes so soiled surfaces

Step-saving preparation

for washing
It is not necessary
to rinse dishes before
putting them into the
dishwasher.
Just remove large pieces,
bones, and other hard
items.
The POWER
CLEAN Module
will
remove
food parti-
cles from the water. It contains a chopping
device which will reduce the size of food items.
If hard items such as fruit seeds, nuts and
egg shells enter the POWER CLEAN Module,
you might hear chopping,
grinding,
crunching or buzzing sounds. Those sounds are normal when hard items enter the module.

without cutting back on hot water needed

Some plumbing
codes require use of a drain air gap between an undercounter
dishwasher
and the drain system
of the house. The air gap is usually located
above the sink
or on the top of the counter near the dishwasher
to prevent
the possibility
of water backing
up from the drain into the
