SECTION ONE
INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS
GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS
For complete installation procedures see the “Installation Instructions” in the
literature packet provided with the dishwasher.
A video presentation, Key Features and Installation Considerations, part number
4317280V, is available. This video covers the entire installation process.
Each location will present a different set of challenges that can be anticipated and solved before installation begins.
•
Check the planned location of the dishwasher.
•
Easy access to hot water, drain line and electricity.
•
Convenient access for loading. The dishwasher door should open and close freely.
•
The opening under the counter should be square and the cabinet fronts should be perpendicular to the floor.
•
Make sure the cabinet opening is free of intrusions such as braces or utility lines.
•
Do not install the dishwasher on carpeted floors.
•
An outside wall behind the dishwasher should be insulated to prevent the water line, inlet valve
and drain line from rupturing.
The application of a horizontal pump and filter
technology allows for the tub to be designed three
inches deeper than current models. This deeper
tub and longer door design will impact the installation process because there is less working
space available underneath the unit and correct
routing and placement of the drain hose, water
supply and electrical wiring is critical.
The tub must be level. Reduced water consumption of this dishwasher requires that it be installed
level and plumb for proper water recirculation back
into the sump area during operation.
Do not remove the drain
hose from the left side of
the tub. This loop in the
drain hose provides proper back pressure for the
soil sensor. If the loop is
removed, the dishwasher
will not initiate Automatic
Purge Filtration.

Canceling a Cycle
Anytime during a cycle, press
The dishwasher starts a two minute drain (if
needed.) Let the dishwasher drain completely.
The light turns off after two minutes.
To Stop the Drain
NOTE: The Soil Sensor monitors water pressure at the output of the drain pump. Cycle time
and/or water usage can vary from the numbers
above as the sensor adjusts the cycle for the best
wash performance. Water pressure varies depending on the soil concentration in the accumulator.
Press CANCEL/DRAIN a second time to stop the
drain immediately. Always drain the dishwasher
before starting a new cycle.
To Clear the Indicators
Press CANCEL/DRAIN before starting the dishwasher to clear all options and cycles.
One or all of the following may be used to achieve
the desired washing performance of a selected
wash cycle.
Changing a Cycle or Setting
Automatic Purge Filtration
During the first minute of a cycle:
The Automatic Purge Filtration (APF) feature may
also be invoked if the soil sensor detects excessive soils. This can occur during selected wash
or rinse cycles. APF mode provides one or more
purges of excess soils trapped in the soil accumulator at specified intervals in the cycle.
1.
Press a new cycle and/or options.
2.
Check the detergent dispensers. They
must be filled properly for the new cycle.
After the first minute of a cycle:
1.
The APF operates for a total of 10 seconds while
the wash motor is operating in a wash or rinse
mode. The accumulator screen will be cleaned
from jets on the underside of the lower spray arm.
During the first five seconds, the drain motor turns
on and the fill valve is activated. This purges the
soiled water from the accumulator and begins to
add fresh water. For the remaining five seconds,
the drain pump is turned off, but the fill valve remains activated to bring wash water up to proper
level.
Press:
CANCEL/DRAIN glows. The dishwasher starts
a two minute drain (if needed.) Let the dishwasher
drain completely.

2.
Check the detergent dispensers. They
must be filled properly for the new cycle.
3.
Close the door.
4.
Press a new cycle and/or options.
5.
Press Start.
ADDING ITEMS DURING A CYCLE
Items can be added any time before the main wash starts. Open the door and check the detergent
dispenser. If the cover is still closed, add items.
To Add Items:
1.
Lift up the door latch to stop the cycle. Wait for the spraying action to stop before opening the
door.
2.
Open the door. If the detergent dispenser cover is still closed, add the item(s).
3.
Close the door firmly until it latches. The dishwasher resumes the cycle after a five (5) second
pause.
OPTION SELECTION
Soak & Scour
Select this option to run a 4 hour pre-soak before the selected cycle. The pre-soak
consists of a standard fill, an initial 8 minute wash, then 13 wash pulses, each 90
seconds long with a 16 minute pause between pulses. This keeps the dishes wet
and soaking. At the conclusion of the pre-soak, the dishwasher drains and the
selected cycle begins.
NOTE: The Soak & Scour option is allowed with the Pots & Pans cycle only.
Hi-Temp Scour
Select this option to increase the target water temperature during the wash portion of
the cycle. Hi-Temp Scour raises this target water temperature to 145° F (63° C) in the
Main Wash for all cycles. In the Pots & Pans cycle, Hi-Temp Scour also raises the
target water temperature to 135° F (57° C) in the pre-wash. Heating the
water helps improve washing results. Hi-Temp Scour is useful when loads contain
baked-on food.
This option adds heat, water and wash time by adding at least one additional rinse mode to the cycle.
NOTE: Hi-Temp Scour is an option with Pots & Pans and Normal.
Sani-Rinse
Select this option to raise the water temperature in the final rinse to approximately
160° F (70° C) for 10 minutes. Sani-Rinse adds heat and time to the cycle. In the
Normal cycle, this high temperature rinse sanitizes the dishes and glassware in accordance with the NSF International requirements (#95/480/05/2480).
NOTE: Sani-Rinse is an option with the Pots & Pans and Normal cycles.
Air Dry
Select this energy-saving option to dry without heat. Air drying is useful when loads
contain plastic dinnerware that may be sensitive to high temperatures. The dishes
take longer to dry and spotting can occur. For best drying, use a liquid rinse aid.
Some items, such as plastics, may need towel drying.
NOTE: Rinse Only does not have a dry period. Air Dry is an option with all other cycles.

hours.
NOTE: To cancel the delay and begin cycle immediately, press Delay Hours until all delay hours LEDs
are off.
Cycle Status Indicators
The progress of the dishwashing cycle can be followed with the Cycle Status Indicators.
6
Sensing/Soaking
The dishwasher senses the soil level on the dishes. Soil level determines the length of some cycles,
the amount of heat added to the wash and the number of rinses needed in the cycle for the load. It also
senses the temperature of the water during thermal hold water heating periods. SENSING/SOAKING
glows during the soil sensing and thermal hold portions of the cycle. Wash action continues while
sensing occurs. SENSING/SOAKING also glows during “soaking” events and the 4-hour pre-soak
cycle invoked by the Soak & Scour Option.
Sanitized
If the Sani Rinse option is selected, SANITIZED glows when the Sani Rinse cycle is finished. If the
dishwasher did not properly sanitize the dishes, the light flashes at the end of the cycle. This can
happen if the cycle is interrupted or the dishwasher failed to reach sani temperatures. The light goes
off when any key is selected or the door is opened and reclosed.
Clean
CLEAN glows when a cycle is finished. The light turns off when the door is opened and reclosed or any
key is pressed.

FUNCTION DESCRIPTION
The washing action of the Point Voyager Dishwasher performs more work and maintains higher performance with reduced energy consumption. This is accomplished with the following: 1) A redesigned
wash system using separate wash and drain pumps. 2) A soil sensor and thermistor which monitor
washing conditions. 3) An electronic control board which adjusts cycle functions to optimize washing
performance.

Wash/Rinse Function
1.
2.
3.
Water and soils pass through the course
protection grate at the top of the sump assembly (2a) and then passes through the
foreign object protector (2b) into the main
wash pump inlet chamber (2c).
The water then passes through the chopper assembly where food particles are reduced in size so they can pass through
the water delivery system. (3)
4.
Water is drawn through the impeller and
into the pump chamber. (4)
5.
Here, 20 percent of the water is diverted
towards the soil accumulator. Food soils
in this water stream are captured by the
separation screen. (5)
6.
(6a) The remaining water is allowed to
rejoin the main wash flow by passing
through the separation screen. (6b)
The main wash water passes from the
spray arm nozzles, over the dish load and
into the sump assembly, where a number
of operations occur.
Downstream restrictions limit the water
flow into the accumulator to 10 percent.
9
7.
This heavily soiled water is distributed
throughout the accumulator. (7) Soils will
remain trapped in the accumulator until a
drain or Automatic Purge Filtration event
takes place.
8.
Since the water in the accumulator is under some minimal pressure, it rejoins the
main wash water by flowing through the
accumulator screen into the tub. (8)
9.
For this to occur properly it is critical that
the dishwasher be installed perfectly level.
10.
Jets located on the underside of the lower
spray arm continuously wash down the accumulator screen to allow more soils to
concentrate. (10)
11.
The remaining 80 percent of the wash
water will flow from the impeller through
the volute and up through the spray arms.
(11)
Drain Function
1.
During the Drain function, a separate drain pump motor is started while the main wash pump
motor continues to operate for 1 minute. (1) This accomplishes three goals.
2.
First, the jets on the underside of the lower spray arm continue to flush soils from the accumulator screen while the water is drained from the unit. (2)
3.
Second, negative pressure in the main wash pump inlet chamber keeps the check valve closed,
allowing the drain pump to remove soiled water from the accumulator. (3)
4.
Third, the spray arms will rinse down the interior of the wash tub while the water is drained,
leaving the inside free of soils. (4)
2
2

5.
The main wash pump then stops creating positive pressure in the pump’s inlet chamber. This
opens the check valve allowing the remaining water to be drained away. (5)

Automatic Purge Filtration
1.
The Automatic Purge Filtration feature may be invoked if the soil sensor detects excessive
soils. This can occur during selected wash or rinse functions. APF mode provides one or
more purges of excess soils trapped in the soil accumulator at specified intervals in a cycle.
2.
The APF mode operates for a total of 10 seconds while the wash pump is operating in a wash
or rinse mode. The accumulator screen will be cleaned from jets on the underside of the lower
spray arm. (2)
3.
During the first five seconds, the drain pump turns on and the fill valve is activated. This
purges the soiled water from the accumulator and begins to add fresh water. (3)

Removing the Impeller from the Wash Motor
The impeller is attached to the wash motor and can
be removed once the wash motor is removed from
the pump base.
1.
Do not touch sealed surfaces on the
impeller or the volute. Contamination or
damage will cause premature failure.
Place the end of a flat-bladed screwdriver
into the back of the wash motor to hold the
armature of the motor from turing while unscrewing the impeller clockwise. (Fig. 3-28)
Take care not to scratch or nick the motor
windings.

Once the side of the dishwasher is accessible:
1. Remove the outer door panel and console
from the dishwasher door.
2. Remove the door spring from the tension
adjustment at the bottom of the unit and then
remove the spring link from the door hinge
plate (Fig. 3-30).
3. Using a pair of pliers, slightly bend the tab
on the door hinge plate to open the slot for
the hinge pin. (Fig. 3-30, INSET- Arrow points
at tab).

HOW TO USE THE COMMON CYCLE TIME CHART
The Common Cycle Time Chart reproduced on pages 26 and 27 of this Job Aid can be found on the
Tech Sheet supplied with each dishwasher. The Tech Sheet is located behind the access panel at the
bottom of the unit.
The Common Cycle Time Chart appears to be more complex than a typical Esterline Chart. This is a
result of the greatly expanded number of cycles and cycle variations possible with electronic controls
as opposed to previous electro-mechanical controls. The chart reflects all possible cycles/cycle variations available on ALL Year 2000 Dishwasher models. As a result the chart may list some cycles that
will not apply to the specific model being serviced.
Common Cycle Time Chart Layout
The wash cycles are listed on the left side of the chart. Cycle names such as Anti-Bacterial/BakedOn-Cookware may be designated as Anti-Bacterial on some models and Baked-On-Cookware on
others. Cycle variations are listed directly underneath each cycle name. These variations are dependent on one or more of the following factors:
•
What, if any, options were chosen?
•
The Soil Sensor detected soil in the water. (NOTE: If the Soil Sensor does not trip during a
particular cycle, the unit defaults to the same variation of the cycle that is applicable for nonsensor models.)
The grey highlighted cycle variations indicate options the customer can select (Notes 1 & 3, pages 31
& 32). The grey highlighted cycle variation Light Soil - ENERGY STAR is an exception and indicates a
unique default cycle for these models (Note 5, page 33).The unhighlighted cycle variations are based
on input from the soil sensor or are defaults based on specific models (Notes 2 & 4, page 32).

Quick Clean/Time Saver Cycle
The Quick Clean/Timer Saver cycle has a unique variation. During the initial water fill, the thermistor
will monitor the incoming water temperature. If it is 135° F (57° C) or above the electronic control will
skip intervals 39 through 36. This shortens the wash/rinse time by eliminating a drain and fill sequence
(See Note 1b and 1c, page 31).
Reading the Common Cycle Time Chart
The following information must be determined before the Common Cycle Time Chart can be used:
•
What option, if any, was chosen? (For example: Hi-Temp Scrub)
•
Is the Dishwasher a Soil Sensor Model?
•
If Soil Sensor Model, did the soils in the water trigger the sensor?
•
ON QUICK CLEANUP Cycle: Was the first fill water temperature cool or hot?
With this information in hand, the illumination of status indicators and the operation of functional
components can be verified by looking at the Cycle Progression and Status Indicators (1) and Output
Loads (2) portion of the chart. (Example: In Interval 10 (Final Rinse) the wash motor interval (Output
Loads) is shaded and the Rinse Indicator (Status Indicators) is shaded. This means that the wash
motor should be running and the Rinse LED on the control panel should be lit. (Fig. 4-4)

Using the Common Cycle Time Chart
To confirm the correct operation of a cycle or properly diagnosis a malfunction, the following information must be determined:
•
Does the model have a Soil Sensor?
•
What cycle was chosen?
•
What Cycle Option was chosen?
•
What is the first fill water temperature? (Quick Clean / Time Saver Cycle only)
Proceed with the following steps:
1.
Start the selected cycle and program the unit for Rapid Advance service feature. (See page
36).
2.
Advance through the intervals to the one that will operate the load or perform the function to be
checked.
3.
If the load does not operate, refer to the wiring diagram or applicable strip circuit to determine
what connections and components to check. (See Section Five - TECH TIPS.)
4.
Whenever possible, check components for resistance or continuity. On components where
resistance or continuity checks are not reliable, conduct voltage checks.

COMMON CYCLE TIME CHART NOTES
NOTE 1 – CYCLE MODIFICATIONS BASED ON SENSOR INPUTS
The control monitors food soil and temperature sensors during the first four intervals of the cycle
(intervals 45-42) to determine what sensor based cycle modifications are appropriate. The modifications made to the cycle depend on the cycle and options selected as well as the sensor inputs. Note
the interval skip arrows and thermal hold temperature changes on the time chart for each version of the
cycle.
In addition to being able to modify the cycle itself based on soil sensor input, the APF (Automatic Purge
Filtration) wash system allows the control to continuously filter and flush food soil out of the pump
during “APF enabled” intervals scattered throughout each cycle and do it without interrupting the cycle
(see note 2 on APF).
(a)
Anti-Bacterial/Cookware, Pots&Pans/Heavy, Normal, and China Cycles
The control assumes that the worst case cycle (the heavy soil version) is going to be required
until the true soil level is determined. The soil level is determined by counting the number of
pressure switch (soil sensor) trips that occur in the first APF interval of the cycle (interval 42).
If no trips are detected in interval 42, the control modifies the remainder of the cycle to match
the light soil/non-sensor version of the cycle. If one or more trips are detected in interval 42,
the control continues with the heavy soil version of the cycle.
Note: Energy Star models have a different light soil/non-sensor version of the Normal cycle than other
models (see Model Specifics table to identify Energy Star models).
Note: Models without pressure switches (soil sensors) never get sensor trips and thus always default
to the light/non-sensor version of the cycle and never execute APF purges. (See Model Specifics Table
to identify models without pressure switches).
Note: The Power Scour/High Temp Scrub option can override or alter the soil-based cycle modifications (see Note 14, page 34).
(b) Time Saver/Quick CleanUp Cycles
The control does NOT modify the Quick Clean Up/Time Saver cycle based on soil level. Instead, it modifies the cycle based on incoming water temperature detected during the first fill
interval of the cycle (interval 45). The control assumes the worst case cycle (Cool First Fill
version) will be required until the end of interval 42. At the end of interval 42, it modifies the
remainder of the cycle based on the inlet water temperature it actually detected in the first fill.
If the water was more than135°F/57°C it changes to the “Hot First Fill” version of the cycle. If
the water was less than 135°F, it will continue with the “Cool First Fill” version of the cycle. The
“Cool First Fill” version of the cycle basically contains an extra drain and fill prior to the main
wash to increase the initial water temperature for the main wash and reduce the time needed
to heat the water.
Like other cycles, the Quick CleanUp/Time Saver cycle does allow APF purges to occur (in
APF intervals) if pressure switch trips occur but the Quick CleanUp/Time Saver cycle timing
itself is not modified based on pressure switch trips or soil level.
(c)
Rinse Only/Quick Rinse Cycles
The control does NOT modify the Rinse Only/Quick Rinse cycle based on sensor inputs. Like
other cycles, it does allow APF purges to occur (in APF intervals) if pressure switch trips occur
but the Rinse Only/Quick Rinse cycle timing itself is not modified based on any sensor inputs.
31
NOTE 2 – APF ENABLED INTERVALS
The APF (Automatic Purge Filtration) wash system allows the control to continuously filter and flush
food soil out of the pump during “APF enabled” intervals scattered throughout each cycle and do it
without interrupting the cycle. The control monitors the pressure switch (soil sensor) input during each
of the APF enabled intervals in the cycle (see time chart). Whenever a pressure switch trip is detected
in one of these APF intervals, the control executes a 10-second “APF purge” to clear the pump of soil.
These APF purges occur in parallel with the cycle and do not interrupt or affect the timing of other
functions (like washing) that are called for in the interval. Each APF purge consists of 5 seconds of Fill
and Drain followed immediately by 5 seconds of Fill by itself. If an APF purge is executed during a
heated wash interval, the heater must be turned off during the first 5-second Fill and Drain portion of
each purge, but cycle timing is not affected and the heater turns back on mid-way through the purge.
Multiple APF purges can occur within each APF interval of the cycle but are limited by certain frequency
and quantity limits:
•
APF purges must be spaced at least 60 seconds apart within any given APF interval (the
pressure switch will be ignored prior to 60 seconds).
•
The maximum number of APF purges allowed within a given APF interval is specified on the
time chart in that interval (the pressure switch will be ignored for the duration of an APF
interval once the maximum APF limit for that interval has been exceeded). In interval 33, the
limit is “1” for 120°F thermal holds and “3” for all other thermal hold setpoint temperatures.
Note: Models without pressure switches (soil sensors) never get sensor trips and thus never execute
APF purges. (See Model Specifics Table to identify models without pressure switches).
NOTE 3 – WATER HEATING THERMAL HOLD INTERVALS
During water heating thermal holds (intervals 40, 33, & 15), cycle timing is interrupted and the dishwasher continues washing while it heats the water to the setpoint temperatures specified on the time
chart for each version of the cycle. The Water Heating and Sensing indicators are turned on and the
cycle time displayed by models with numeric displays is frozen during thermal hold intervals (see
Notes 5, 6, & 7). The dishwasher will hold in this suspended, water heating mode until the water
reaches the temperature specified for the thermal hold or a maximum default time limit for the thermal
hold (below) expires. At the conclusion of the thermal hold, the control resumes normal operation and
timing and proceeds to the next interval.
The default maximum time limits for all the thermal hold intervals are as follows (in minutes):

(Quick CleanUp/Time Saver and Quick Rinse/Rinse Only cycles have no thermal hold intervals)
NOTE 4 – THERMALLY CAPPED INTERVALS
Interval 34 is a heated wash interval thermally capped at 150°F/66°C. Interval 10 is only heated for the
Quick CleanUp/Time Saver cycle and is thermally capped in that situation at 150°F/66°C. Anytime the
thermal cap temperature is exceeded during one of these intervals, the heater will turn off, but the
dishwasher will continue washing for the duration of the interval.
32
NOTE 5 - NUMERIC CYCLE TIME DISPLAY
Some models with numeric cycle time displays show an animated spinning clock pattern during the
first four intervals of the cycle (intervals 45-42) while sensor based cycle modifications (and true time
remaining) are being determined. Other models simply display the worst case cycle time remaining
(in minutes) until the end of interval 42. See the Model Specifics Table to identify models with numeric
displays and which models exhibit the animated clock pattern. At the end of interval 42, all models with
numeric displays will begin displaying a corrected cycle time (in minutes). From here on, the display
clocks down normally, minute by minute, through the rest of the cycle.
Note: Cycle time does not include time spent in thermal holds; the time on the display at the start of the
thermal hold is frozen until the end of the thermal hold (see Notes 3 & 6).
NOTE 6 – WATER HEATING (THERMAL HOLD) STATUS INDICATOR
The Water Heating indicator is turned on during all thermal hold intervals to signal that cycle timing,
display sequencing, and numeric cycle time display countdown operations have been suspended or
frozen while the water is heated to the proper temperature (see Note 3).
NOTE 7 – SOAKING/SENSING & SOAKING STATUS INDICATORS
In general, the Soaking/Sensing indicator is primarily a “sensing” indicator and is turned on during
cycles whenever the control is monitoring sensors or still making decisions based on sensor inputs.
Specifically this includes all APF intervals, all thermal hold intervals, and the first four intervals of each
cycle (see Notes 1, 2, and 3).
The Soaking/Sensing indicator also turns on during “soaking” events like the “soaking/pause” intervals
in the Energy Star low soil/non-sensor version of the Normal cycle (see Note 9). A dedicated Soaking
indicator is available for non-numeric models that will likewise turn on during these “soaking” events
but not during “sensing” intervals.
NOTE 8 – ‘END-OF-CYCLE’ STATUS INDICATORS – CLEAN and SANITIZED
Both end-of-cycle indicators (Clean and Sanitized) turn on at the end of a cycle and turn off upon
pressing any key or opening and closing the door (Note: The indicators stay on as the door is opened
but turn off as soon as the door is closed again).
(a)
Clean
Comes on at the end of every cycle except Rinse Only/Quick Rinse.
(b)
Sanitized
Comes on at the end of all cycles completed with the Sani Rinse option selected (see Note 15).
If the Sani Rinse option is completed successfully, the indicator is turned on steady at the end
of the cycle. If the Sani Rinse was unsuccessful (see below), the indicator will flash ½ second
on, ½ second off, repeatedly, at the end of the cycle. The Sani Rinse will be deemed unsuccessful (& flash the indicator) if:
(1)
The thermal hold in the final rinse (interval 15) fails to reach the required 160°F/71°C before
timing out on its default time limit.
(2)
The door is opened and/or power is interrupted between the end of the final rinse thermal hold
(interval 15) and the end of the cycle.
33
NOTE 9 - SOAKING PAUSE INTERVAL — ENERGY STAR NORMAL CYCLE ONLY
Intervals 13 and 32 are mid-cycle soaking/pause intervals and are only used in the Energy Star light
soil/non-sensor version of the Normal cycle. The control stops washing and turns all loads off except
the vent in these intervals. The intent is to let the wash water that’s on the dishes soften and loosen the
food soil that’s on the dishes, energy free. The Soaking and Soaking/Sensing indicators are turned on
during these intervals (see Note 7).
NOTE 10 – PULSED DRY — CHINA CYCLE ONLY
The China cycle (on all models) turns the heater off in intervals 1, 3, and 5 of the dry period to create a
gentler “pulsed” dry.
NOTE 11 – HEATER ON — QUICK CLEANUP/TIME SAVER CYCLE ONLY
To make up for no water heating thermal holds, the heater is turned on in intervals 10-12, 14, and 41-42
of the Quick CleanUp/Time Saver cycle. The heater in interval 10 of the Quick CleanUp/Time Saver
cycle is thermally capped at 150°F/66°C (see Note 4).
NOTE 14 – POWER SCOUR/HIGH TEMP SCRUB OPTION
The Power Scour/High Temp Scrub option is not allowed with China, Quick CleanUp/Time Saver, or
Rinse Only/Quick Rinse cycles. This option does the following:
(a)
Anti-Bacterial/Cookware and Pots&Pans/Heavy cycles
•
Forces the control to run no less than a 5-fill (Wash-Wash-Rinse-Rinse-Rinse-Dry) version of
the cycle, even if no soil is sensed.
•
Raises the pre-wash water heating thermal hold (interval 40) to 135°F/57°C
•
Raises the main wash water heating thermal hold (interval 33) to 145°F/63°C (except AntiBacterial/Cookware cycle, which is already 145°F/63°C).
(b)
Normal cycles
•
Forces the control to run no less than a 4-fill (Wash-Wash-Rinse-Rinse-Dry) version of the
cycle even if no soil is sensed. Note: The standard (non-Energy Star) Normal cycle is already a
minimum of 4-fills (Wash-Wash-Rinse-Rinse-Dry) with light/no soil.
· •
Raises the main wash water heating thermal hold (interval 33) to 145°F/63°C.
NOTE 15 – SANI RINSE OPTION
The Sani Rinse option is not allowed on China, Quick CleanUp/Time Saver, and Rinse Only/Quick
Rinse cycles. It is “built in” and treated as an automatic option on the Anti-Bacterial/Cookware cycles.
This option does the following:
•
Raises final rinse water heating thermal hold (interval 15) to 160°F/71°C and adds 20 minutes to its default maximum time limit.
· •
Turns heater off in the last two intervals of the dry period (intervals 1 and 2).
· •
Invokes the Sanitized status indicator at the end of the cycle (see Note 8).
NOTE 16 – AIR DRY/NO HEAT DRY/ENERGY SAVER DRY OPTION
The Air Dry/No Heat Dry option is not allowed on the Rinse Only/Quick Rinse cycle (which has no dry).
This option does the following:
•
Turns heater off in the dry period (intervals 1-6).

RAPID ADVANCE SERVICE FEATURE AND DIAGNOSTICS
CYCLES
Pressing the following option keys in the sequence shown will either start the Diagnostics Cycle or turn
on the Rapid Advance feature for stepping through customer selectable cycles:
HIGH TEMP SCRUB, AIR DRY, HIGH TEMP SCRUB, AIR DRY
Or
SANI RINSE, AIR DRY, SANI RINSE, AIR DRY
(Note: HIGH TEMP SCRUB = POWER SCOUR = HIGH TEMP SCOUR)
(Note: AIR DRY = NO HEAT DRY = ENERGY SAVER DRY)
If the above key sequence is entered after starting a cycle, the Rapid Advance feature is turned on,
which allows the operator to manually advance the currently running cycle, interval by interval, by
pressing the Pots&Pans/Heavy or Anti-Bacterial/Cookware or Start key.
If the above key sequence is entered with the dishwasher in Standby, the Diagnostics Cycle is started.
The Diagnostics Cycle can be rapid-advanced, interval by interval, by pressing the Pots & Pans/Heavy
or Anti-Bacterial/Cookware or Start key.
NOTE: The door must be closed before the Diagnostics cycle will run. Likewise, the door must be
closed after each rapid advance selection of the Pots & Pans/Heavy or Anti-Bacterial/Baked On Cookware key for the control to advance to the next interval of the Diagnostics or currently running cycle.
DIAGNOSTICS CYCLE TIME CHART NOTES
(DIAGNOSTICS CYCLE) NOTE 1 – R/A SENSOR ASSY CHECK
To help detect a defective or disconnected Rinse Aid level sensor, the Rinse Aid Empty LED should
light up in Diagnostics if the Rinse Aid dispenser is empty or the circuit is shorted. If the Rinse Aid
dispenser is full, the LED indicator will not light up during the diagnostic test, except in the first increment.
(DIAGNOSTICS CYCLE) NOTE 2 – THERMISTOR OPEN/SHORT DETECTION
The Diagnostics Test cycle will illuminate the ‘CLEAN’ LED throughout the operating portion of the
cycle that follows the initial display test interval whenever it detects a “short circuit” or “open circuit” on
the thermistor input.
NOTE: Warm water must be in the dishwasher when performing this test. The highest thermistor
resistance values the control can detect as its open circuit criteria are close to the normal thermistor
resistances at room temperature. Consequently, this indicator is only reliable for “open circuit” detection if warm water is in the dishwasher.
(DIAGNOSTICS CYCLE) NOTE 3 – STUCK PRESSURE SWITCH DETECTION
The Diagnostics cycle monitors the normally open soil-sensing pressure switch input for a “stuck
closed” condition by aborting wash interval 3 and skipping immediately to drain interval 1 if the control
detects a closed pressure switch.
