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 particlesand
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.

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.

parts that can fit in the dishwasher can be cleaned

however, should be cleaned

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:
A.hUUiUUUl:
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.
CQ’Std
and decorative &3SSeS: Crystal can break from sudden exposure to high
water temperature.
Metai 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 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

If you need service or assistance, we suggest
YOUfollow these four stem:
1. Before
calling for assistance...
Performance
problems often result from little
things you can find and fix yourself without tools
of any kind.
If your dishwasher
will not run, or stops during
a cycle:
l Is the
door tightly
closed
and securely
latched?
l Has the
cycle been correctly
set?
l Is the water
turned on?
l Have
you checked
your home’s main fuses or
circuit breaker box?
l Is the dishwasher
wired into a live circuit with
the proper voltage (undercounter
models)?
l If the motor
has stopped because of an overload, it will automatically
reset itself within a
few minutes. If the motor does not start, call for
service.
If your dishwasher
seems to run too long:
l Are you
using POTS & PANS Cycle or HI-TEMP
WASHING Option? The dishwasher
may be
waiting for the water to heat.
l Is your
household
water temperature
set too
low? Low water temperature
settings
will
cause longer dishwasher operating
times.
