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

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 particles 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

Hot water dissolves grease

Make
certain loads are washed in hot water (at least
140°F - 60°C). Two ways to have a reliable hot
water supply...
1. Maintain 140 F water supply at central water
heater. To check water temperature,
turn on
hot water faucet nearest the dishwasher.
Let
water run until it is as hot as possible, then
check with a candy or meat thermometer.
If
the temperature
is too low, have a qualified
person raise the water heater thermostat
setting.
2. Use HI-TEMP WASHING Option. If water heating
is needed, a thermostat will delay the cycle
until temperature
reaches
145°F (63°C). If
water is hot enough, the cycle will proceed
with no delay. This lets you turn down your
water heater, if you choose, without cutting
back on hot water needed
for good dishwashing.
Quiet operating tips
To avoid thumping and clattering
noises during
operation:
. Make sure lightweight
load items are secured
in the rack.

2. Use the LOW ENERGY WASH Cycle whenever
possible.
It uses less hot water and energy
than otherwash
cycles.
4. load correctly
for best washing results. Incorrect loading
may cause poor washing
and the need to rewash all or part of the
load.
5. Don’t pre-rinse
normally
soiled dishes. Select the correct cycle for the load and use
the recommended
amount of detergent
for
good washing results without hand rinsing.
6. Use your dlshwasher
during off-peak hours.
Local ufilitles
recommend
this to avoid
heavy usage of energy at certain times of
day
7. Kitchen cleanup
can be done quickly and
efficiently through the use of your dishwasher.
Most appliance
parts that can fit in the dishwasher can be cleaned
by it. Burned-on soil,
however, should be cleaned
by hand.

Special tips on dishwasher use
Remember,
use your dishwasher
only for the job it was designed
to do.
Some items are not dishwasher
safe or may require special care.
Read these special tips for the following
items:
h.UUiUUm:
Aluminum loses its bright, shiny appearance
and darkens in color due to
minerals in the water and the alkalinity of the dishwasher detergent, Colored aluminum may
fade.
TIPS: If washed in the dishwasher
avoid placing directly in front of detergent
dispenser
where it could be sprinkled with undissolved
detergent,
causing spotting, pitting, and
discoloration.
Follow utensil manufacturers’
cleaning
instructions.
China:
Hand-painted,
metal-trimmed,
and antique china may fade due to high water
temperatures
and alkaline detergent
solution in the dishwasher.
TIPS: Delicate,
antique items should not be washed in the dishwasher.
Load carefully.
Do not allow pieces to touch each other. Test one piece by washing it daily in the
dishwasher for several weeks. Then compare
it with the rest of the set to see if colors have
changed.
and decorative
CrjStal
@aSSeS:
Crystal can break from sudden exposureto
high
water temperature.
Metal trim and colorful decoration
on glass will fade in time when
washed in the dishwasher.
TIPS: Delicate,
antique items should not be washed in the dishwasher.
Load carefully
in top rack only. Be sure to load a few larger items in the bottom rack to reduce amount of
force of water spray reaching glassware
from lower spray arm. Use the shortest cycle.
Flatware:
Salty and acidic foods may tarnish silver and stainless flatware if allowed to
remain on the utensils. A film may form on sterling silver and silver plate items washed in a
dishwasher. This film is caused
by reaction of silver with chlorine
in the detergent.
Gold
flatware
is not dishwasher
safe.
TIPS: Rinse flatware as soon as possible, especially
if it is not to be washed right away.
Dishwasher detergent
may remove antique finishes. Wash by hand. Tarnish and film
build-up can be removed with silver polish.
Cast

UteUSilS:
The seasoned
finish will be removed in the dishwasher. Rusting

hour or two.

Dishwasher care & cleaning:
Exterior - Regular use of a soft damp cloth or sponge
and a mild detergent
is all that is necessary, in mOSt cases,
to keep the outside of your dishwasher nice looking and
clean, Interior - Hard water minerals may cause a
white film to build-up on the inside surfaces,
especially
just beneath the door area.
Wear rubber gloves when cleaning
the dishwasher interior. Do not use
any type of cleanser
other than
dishwasher
detergent
because
it may cause foaming or
sudsing.

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
dishwasher
due to a plugged
drain. The drain air gap is
NOT a part of the dishwasher
and is NOT covered

The drain air gap should be kept
clean to insure proper draining

low? Low water temperature
settings
will
cause longer dishwasher operating
times.

water is normal.
l
Is drain air gap clogged?
