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 particles, 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
particles
from the water, stores them,
washes them down the drain.
Load dishes so soiled surfaces face
erful spray from rotating
arms.

You can help save energy
if you:
1. Wash full loads. Running a half-filled
dishwasher uses the same amount of electricity
and hot water as a fully loaded machine.
2. Use the NORMAL WASH Cycle for normally

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

due to a plugged

NOT a part of the dishwasher
and is NOT covered

wood top can be used as a
utility work surface for most kitchen jobs. It is
stronger and more easily cleaned
than genuine wood.

on the top.

foods, use a scouring pad.
