PROGRAMS AND OPTIONS
To select a program, simply turn the control knob to the appropriate program number. Select Temp boost and Heat dry by pressing
or releasing the buttons, as indicated on the control panel.
Options
Programs
1 Rinse and hold
To rinse dishes that you plan to wash
later that day.
2 Pots and pans
For the heaviest soiled loads, such as
pots, pans, casseroles, etc.
3 Normal wash
For normally soiled loads, such as
plates, glasses, bowls, and lightly
soiled pans.
4 Light wash
For lightly soiled loads that are washed
immediately after use. This program is
good for delicate items, such as fine
china and crystal, but you should set the
Temp boost to Low and the Heat dry to
off.
5 Rinse
This program rinses the dishes. Select
Heated dry if you also want them heat
dried.
6 Plate warm
This program activates the heating
element to warm the dishes.
Temp boost If this button is set on Hi (released), the main
wash and final rinse are heated to 140° F. If it is
set on Low (depressed), the dishes are washed at
the household hot water temperature.
Heated dry
Releasing this button activates the heating
element for a short period after the final rinse to
dry the dishes faster.
CHANGING A PROGRAM
If you decide to change the program after you have started the machine, simply turn the control knob to the desired program. The
machine will drain so the new program will start with clean water.
AMOUNT OF DISHWASHING DETERGENT TO USE
We recommend that you use only unscented, granular automatic dishwashing detergent. Generally, one tablespoon of detergent is
needed for a normal wash load. More heavily soiled items, however, may need more detergent. Also, the amount of detergent
needed can vary due to differences in water hardness. The harder the water, the more detergent you may need. (See page 5.) In any
case, you should never use more than three tablespoons of detergent.

QUESTIONS
ANSWERS
1)
Where do I put the prewash detergent?
1)
The prewash detergent goes in the small compartment
between the main wash detergent compartment and the rinse
aid dispenser. (See page 4.)
2)
Where do I put the rinse aid?
2)
The rinse aid goes into the rinse aid dispenser. (See page 5.)
3)
Why does my dishwasher run so long?
3)
If the temperature of the water entering your dishwasher is
below 120°, the dishwasher runs longer because it heats the
water to the proper temperature for the program selected.
Raising your water heater setting may help shorten the cycle
times. If this doesn’t resolve the problem, call the ASKO
Advisory Center.
4)
Why am I getting a white film on my dishes?
4)
You may be using too much detergent or washing your dishes
in water that is too hot. Try using less detergent and a lower
temperature setting. (See pages 5 and 8.)
5)
Why is there always water left in the bottom of my
machine?
5)
It’s normal to have some water left in the sump area near the
drain. If the water fills more than the drain area, see page 9 for
possible solutions.
