This manual does not cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur. Some situations may
arise where use of common sense and caution should always be used when installing, operating, and
maintaining any appliance.
WARNING! Before using your dishwasher, follow basic precautions, including the following:
♦ Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.
♦ Dishwashers must be electrically grounded. Read the Installation Instructions for details.
♦ Use the dishwasher only for its intended purpose.
♦ Do not run the dishwasher while you are out of the home.
♦ Use only automatic dishwasher detergents and rinse agents.
♦ To reduce the risk of injury, keep detergents and rinse aids out of the reach of children.
♦ Do not load sharp items near the door; you could damage the door seal.
♦ Place sharp knives in the silverware basket with the sharp ends down to avoid the risk of cut-type
injuries.
♦ Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked “dishwasher safe” or the equivalent. For items not marked,
check the manufacturer’s recommendations. Items not dishwasher safe could become deformed or melt
and create a potential fire hazard.
♦ Do not touch the heating element during or immediately after use.
♦ Do not operate the dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are properly in place (i.e., guard plate, access
panel, toe kick, etc.)
♦ Do not tamper with controls by removing or changing.
♦ Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the dishwasher door or baskets .
♦ To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or on a dishwasher.
♦ Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used
for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not been used for
two weeks, before using the dishwasher turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for
several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable, do not
smoke or use an open flame during this time.
♦ When removing an old dishwasher from service or discarding it, remove the door to the washing
compartment.
♦ Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline, or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance.
♦ Disconnect electrical power to dishwasher before servicing.
♦ Repairs should be done by a qualified technician.
CHILD SAFETY TIPS
♦ Dishwasher detergents and rinse aids are corrosive, so always keep them out of reach of children.
♦ Should a child swallow dishwasher detergent or rinse aid, give plenty to drink immediately, i.e., one or
two glasses of milk or water. Do not try to induce vomiting. Seek medical advice immediately:
1-800-POISON1
♦ Always close the door and start the dishwasher as soon as you put in the detergent.
♦ Always keep small children away from the machine when it is open. There may be some detergent
residue left inside the machine.
♦ If dishwasher detergent gets in someone’s eyes, rinse them with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
♦ Do not allow children to use or play in or on the dishwasher.
♦ Load all long and sharp items in the knife/utensil basket. If this is not possible, load sharp objects with
the pointed end facing the back of the dishwasher. Sharp items loaded in the silverware basket should
be loaded with pointed ends down.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
DISHWASHER FEATURES
Your new dishwasher features our EuroStyle™ wash system. This means that after the prewash, the water
is drained out and the main wash starts with clean water. If you plan to start your dishwasher right away,
it’s not necessary to rinse the dishes. You do, however, need to scrape off the large particles of
food before loading.
NOTE: Deviations in features may occur, depending on the model.

Read these instructions carefully and completely before you install the machine. The installation should be
carried out by a qualified person who is familiar with all local codes and ordinances for electrical and
plumbing connections.
If a dishwasher is being installed in this area for the first time, most of the cabinet work, plumbing, and
electrical has to be done before you move the machine into place.
If you are replacing an old dishwasher, you must check the plumbing connection and wiring before you
move the new dishwasher into place.
A built-in dishwasher must be enclosed on the top, both sides and the back. The best place for your dishwasher
is in the kitchen near the sink. This makes it easier to connect the water and drain supply lines.
After you have placed the dishwasher near the installation location, remove the wrappings from the dishwasher.
Be sure to remove any items packaged inside the dishwasher.
NOTE: It is a good idea to inspect for any shipping damage before you proceed with the installation.
Should you find any damage, you should report it to your dealer or builder immediately.

DRAIN CONNECTIONS
Eurotech provides a 5/8” (17 mm) corrugated drain hose with a drain line holder to form a high loop. If
additional drain hose is needed, please purchase an additional Eurotech drain hose and join it to the provided
hose with a 5/8” (17 mm) copper tube.
NOTE: Do not use any fittings anywhere in the drain line that are less than 5/8" (17 mm) ID.
The access hole for the drain line should be 1-1/2" (38 mm).
The high loop is necessary for proper draining and should be located as close to the dishwasher as possible.
There are three ways to connect the drain supply line, as shown
in the illustrations at right:
A) Typical connection to sink plumbing
before trap (high loop drain)
A) Typical connection to sink plumbing before trap (high loop
drain)
B) Connection to air gap then to the trap.
C) Connection to waste disposer with air gap
NOTE: Don’t forget to remove the knockout or plug
from the disposer fitting.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT DRAIN
CONNECTIONS:
♦ Failure to provide the proper drain connection height
(minimum of 20" (508 mm)) above the bottom of the dishwasher base) or a 20" (508 mm) high loop will
result in improper drainage, which will damage the machine.
B) Connection to air gap then to the trap.
♦ No part of the drain hose should be higher than 35" (889
mm) from the bottom of the dishwasher.
♦ The hose must not be drawn straight to a floor well or its
equivalent because it might function as a siphon and empty
the machine.
♦ The drain hose can be extended to a maximum length of 10
feet (3048 mm). Joints and jointed tubes, if any, must have a
minimum 5/8" (17 mm) ID.
♦ If the drain line is going to be connected to a waste disposer,
be sure to remove the knockout or plug from the fitting on
the disposer before connecting the drain line.
When the installation is ready, open the supply valve and let
the pressure act for a while. Then check that all connections
are tight and there are no leaks.

the inside top of the dishwasher door and discard.
3. With the door slightly open, position the wood panel
with the holes in alignment with the door and secure it
in place with 2-12” squeeze clamps on both sides.
4. If you are installing a 30-1/16” high panel, it should
extend 1-13/16” above the control panel. It’s a good
idea to take this measurement before you proceed.
5. Insert the 1-1/2” screws supplied with the unit through
the panel and door.
6. Secure the screws.
7. Close the door and, if necessary, adjust level by
adjusting the front levelling legs for proper height
clearance.
8. Fasten the dishwasher to the cabinet (see page 9).

LOADING THE DISHWASHER
LOADING THE UPPER BASKET
The upper basket holds small and medium-sized items,
such as glasses, cups, saucers, bowls and small plates,
as illustrated below. To make loading and unloading
easier, the upper basket can be pulled out all the way.
Careful arrangement of the dishes will ensure optimal
cleaning. It is best not to load items atop one another
because it could prevent water from spraying over the
whole surface of the items.
Make sure the dishes are securely in place and that
nothing can fall between the basket tines.
You can pull the upper basket all the way out of the
dishwasher. To do so, pull it out until it stops, then tilt it
up then out, as illustrated below.
ADJUSTING THE UPPER BASKET
You can adjust the height and slant of the upper basket. To do this, follow the steps below:
1. Pull the basket out until it stops.
2. Grip the left side of the basket and pull up and slightly forward.
3. Allow the basket to slide down while guiding with your left hand.
To return the basket to the level and up position, follow the steps below:
1. Pull the basket out until it stops.
2. Grip the left side of the basket.
3. Gently pull up and forward until the basket is level and locks into position.
16
Load larger items in the lower basket, such as, dinner plates, pots and pans, serving dishes, and casseroles.
Be sure to load dishware facing downward or toward the center of the dishwasher.
When loading tall items in the lower basket, make sure the upper spray arm turns freely.
NOTE: Be careful not to position items so close to the door that they could prevent the detergent dispenser
from opening.
LOADING THE CUTLERY BASKET
The cutlery basket is designed with 6 compartments to help keep the silverware separated. Load silverware
with the handles downwards and spread it out as much as possible to avoid nesting. For safety, load knives
with the blades pointed toward the bottom of the basket.
Avoid placing silverware made of different materials (e.g., silver and stainless) in the same compartment
because of the risk of discoloration. (See page 32.)
CUTLERY CADDY
Models EDW154E, EDW174E, and EDW194E come with a cutlery caddy that snaps down over the entire
cutlery basket. This lid is ideal for keeping small, lightweight items safely in the cutlery basket. The cutlery
caddy can be purchased as an optional item for Model EDW132C.
17
ENGLISH
LOADING THE LOWER BASKET
DETERGENT DISPENSER
The detergent and rinse aid dispensers are on the inside of the dishwasher door.
If the detergent dispenser is not open, push the small lever at the top, as illustrated.
There are two compartments. The one marked “15” holds about one tablespoon
of detergent. This compartment should generally be filled for lightly soiled wash
loads. The compartment marked “25” holds about one and one-half tablespoon
of detergent. This compartment should be used for normally and heavily soiled
loads.
The prewash detergent
goes here.
For extremely soiled loads, such as baked-on casseroles, you may need to use
a prewash. The detergent for prewash goes into the small indentation on the
outside of the detergent dispenser door. You should only need about a teaspoon
of detergent for the prewash.
NOTE: The amount of detergent used for the main wash and prewash
combined should never be over three tablespoons.
Always add the detergent just before starting the dishwasher, otherwise it could
get damp and won’t dissolve properly.
TYPE OF DETERGENT TO USE
We recommend that you use only unscented, granular automatic dishwashing
detergent. Using the wrong detergent could cause flooding and/or damage
your dishwasher. Do not use detergent that has been wet and is clumped. Also,
check the expiration date on the container.
WARNING!
Never use liquid dishwashing soap. It will cause the machine to oversuds.
Use only automatic dishwashing detergent, preferably a granular.
WARNING!
Dishwasher detergent is corrosive! Take care to keep it out of reach of
children.
AMOUNT OF DETERGENT TO USE
Eurotech dishwashers are designed to be energy efficient. Because the machine uses less water than
conventional dishwashers, you also use less detergent and rinse aid. Generally, only one tablespoon of
detergent is needed for a normal wash load. The amount of detergent needed for your dishes, however,
could be more, depending on the hardness of the water in your area. Also, more heavily soiled items need
more detergent. (See page 19.)
To determine the water hardness in your area, contact your local water utility or area water softening company.
The harder the water, the more detergent you may need. Refer to the following chart for the recommended
detergent amounts based on water hardness. Remember, you should adjust the amount of detergent you
use by small amounts until you find the correct amount.
18

NOTE: We recommend that you do not add prewash detergent for the Quick or Light wash
programs.
* 12 grains and higher is extremely hard water and detergent alone may not be enough. You may need to
use a water softener to maximize the performance of your dishwasher. Also, in areas with extremely hard
water (9+) you may need to wash at lower temperatures to prevent hard water deposits from forming in tank
and wash system.
In hard water areas, both the dishes and the machine can develop a white or gray film after a while. This can
be removed by replacing the prewash detergent with two tablespoons of citric acid. If the water is very hard,
use a rinse aid that contains citric acid.
Different brands of dishwasher detergent have different amounts of phosphorous for softening water. If you
have hard water and use a detergent with less than 8.7% phosphorous content, you may need to use more
detergent or use a detergent with more than 8.7% phosphorous content.
NOTE: If you live in an area with hard water, after a time you may get hard water spots on your dishes.
Refer to page 27 for information on how to remove these spots.
19
RINSE AID DISPENSER
Eurotech dishwashers are designed to use liquid rinse aids in hard water areas. The rinse aid dispenser is
located inside the door next to the detergent dispenser.
The rinse aid is released during the final rinse to prevent water from forming droplets on your dishes that
can leave spots and streaks. It also improves drying by allowing water to “sheet” off the dishes.
To fill the rinse aid dispenser, follow the steps below.
1. Open the dispenser by turning the cap to the left then
lift it out.
2. The dispenser holds about four ounces of liquid rinse
aid. Pour the rinse aid into the dispenser until the level
indicator turns completely black, being careful not to
overfill. (Overfilling could cause the dishwasher to
oversuds.)
3. Wipe away any spills with a damp cloth.
4. Replace the cap by turning it to the right until it stops.
It’s a good idea to give the cap a tug to make sure it’s
secure.
If you have soft water, rinse aid may cause a white film to
develop on your dishes. If this happens, you may not need
rinse aid.
1
A measured amount of rinse aid is released during the final rinse. As
with detergent, the amount of rinse aid needed for your dishes depends
on the hardness of the water in your area. (See previous page.) Too
much rinse aid can result in lather or foaming and cause cloudiness or
streaks on your dishes. If the water in your area is very soft, you may
not need rinse aid. If you do, you can dilute the rinse aid with an equal
amount of water.
4
ADJUSTING THE AMOUNT OF RINSE AID DISPENSED
2
3
The rinse aid dispenser has four settings. Always start with the
dispenser set on “1.” If spots and poor drying are problems, increase
the amount of rinse aid dispensed by removing the dispenser lid and
rotating the dial to ”2.” If the dishes still aren’t drying properly or are
spotted, adjust the dial to the next higher number until your dishes are
spot-free.
WHEN TO REFILL THE RINSE AID DISPENSER
The black dot on the rinse aid dispenser indicates the amount of rinse
aid in the dispenser. As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of the black
dot decreases. You should never let the rinse aid get below
one-quarter full.
RINSE AID INDICATOR LIGHT
Models EDW154E, EDW174E, and EDW194E have a rinse aid indicator light on the control panel that
comes on when the dispenser is empty. After you refill the dispenser, the light will continue to glow until the
program is complete.

Items that can withstand high water temps
The interior of your Eurotech dishwasher is made of surgical quality stainless steel that has been electropolished to make it the smoothest surface available. The smooth surface prohibits the accumulation of dirt
and bacteria inside the unit. If the water in your area is especially hard, however, lime deposits could form
inside the machine. If this happens, you can remove them by putting two tablespoons of citric acid in the
detergent compartment and running a Normal program. In extremely hard water areas you may need to
repeat this process a few times to remove hard water deposits.
CLEANING THE FILTERS
For your convenience, we have placed the drain pump and filtering system within easy reach inside the tub.
There are three components of the filtering system: the central filter, the external water filter, and the filter
grid.
In hard water areas, it may be necessary to clean chemical buildup from the filters every 12 to 18 months.
To do this, follow the steps below:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Remove the central filter.
Remove the external water filter.
Remove the filter grid.
Wash all three filters gently in hot, soapy water and rinse them thoroughly.
WARNING!
Never run the dishwasher without the filters in place.

CLEANING THE DOOR
To clean the edge around the door, use only a soft warm, damp rag. To prevent penetration of water into the
door lock and electrical components, do not use a spray cleaner of any kind.
WARNING!
Never use a spray cleaner of any kind on the door panel. You could damage the door lock and electrical components. And
never use abrasive cleaners or scouring pads on the outer surfaces because they will scratch the finish. Also, some paper
towels can scratch or leave marks on the stainless steel surface.
CLEANING THE SPRAY ARMS
Spray-arm jets and bearings may
sometimes become clogged with hard water
chemicals. To remove the upper spray arm,
grip the center and turn it counterclockwise.
To remove the bottom spray arm, grip the
arm near the center and pull upward.
Wash the spray arms in warm, soapy water.
Use a soft brush to clean the jets. Rinse
thoroughly and replace.
27
ENGLISH
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
CLEANING THE WATER INLET FILTER
In hard water areas, a chemical buildup may form on the water inlet filter. To clean this filter, remove it from
the inlet hose and clean it with warm water and a soft brush.
OVERFILL PROTECTION
Your Eurotech dishwasher has an overfill protection device that automatically shuts off the inlet valve and
starts the drain pump if the water level in the unit should rise above the normal level. If this happens, turn
the water off at the main supply and call for service.
If there is water in the base pan due to an overfill or small leak, the water must be removed before the
dishwasher will start.
28
As with any new appliance, it sometimes takes using it a few times to learn to operate it properly. If you are
having minor performance problems with your dishwasher, read this section before calling for service. It may
save you time and unnecessary expense.
Poor washing performance
♦ The dishes may not be loaded properly. Make sure that soiled surfaces are facing downward or toward
♦
♦
♦
♦
♦
♦
♦
the center of the dishwasher. Also, make sure that the bowls, pots, etc., are not stacked so closely that
water can’t reach the soiled surfaces.
Make sure you are using the appropriate program settings for the dirtiness of your dishes.
An item may be obstructing the spray arm rotation. With the baskets loaded and in place, manually turn
the spray arms to make sure they move freely.
Your dishwasher detergent should be fresh and stored tightly closed in a cool, dry place. Old or caked
detergent will not dissolve properly. Wait until you are ready to start the dishwasher to add the detergent.
If you are using the Delay program, make sure the dispenser is dry before adding the detergent.
Your dishwasher detergent may be inferior. Try a different brand.
Make sure the rinse aid dispenser is filled. (See page 20.)
If you have hard water in your area, try adding more detergent and increasing the amount of rinse aid
dispensed. (See page 20.)
Check that the spray arm jets are not clogged. (See page 27.)
Poor drying performance
♦ Select the Fan Dry option, if available.
♦ If you don’t want to use Heat Dry, you can decrease the drying time by opening the door slightly to let out

the warm, humid air.
Make sure the rinse aid dispenser is filled. (See page 20.)
Make sure you use the proper amount of rinse aid. (See page 20.)
Do not overload the dishes and be careful to avoid nesting.
Load items with concave bottoms tilted so as much water as possible will run off.
Unload the bottom basket first to avoid spilling water onto the dishes when unloading the top basket.
Dishes washed in higher water temperatures will dry faster.
Certain plastics may need to be towel dried.
Plastic items
♦ Always check the manufacturer’s suggested care instructions before washing plastic in your dishwasher.
Even dishwasher-safe items should be loaded in the top basket, away from the heating element.
♦ Some high-acid foods can discolor plastic. You should rinse these items if you do not plan to run the
dishwasher right away.
♦ Plastic items dry poorly and may need to be towel dried.
Chipped or broken dishes
♦ When you load the dishes, be sure they’re securely in place and will not fall over or strike against each

other during the wash.
Load glasses between the tines, not straddling them.
Move the baskets in and out slowly to avoid slamming the dishes together.
Make sure not to load dishes so high that the spray arms could strike them.
Make sure tall glasses and stemware will clear the top of the tub when you push the basket in.
Always load delicate items in the top basket.
Do not overload the dishwasher.
Do not jam the glasses together when loading.
Stains and discolorations
Stains or discoloration on dishes could be caused by a number of things. Listed below are some of the most
common causes. See also “Washing Special Items” on page 32.
♦ Too much iron or manganese in the water can cause yellow or brown marks on your dishes. As a
temporary solution, in place of the prewash detergent, use one teaspoon to one tablespoon of citric acid
crystals. You should consider installing a water filtering system.
♦ Coffee and tea stains usually have to be removed by handwashing in a solution of 1/2 cup bleach and
one quart of water. (Do not use on sterling silver or silver plate.) Be sure to rinse these items thoroughly
before putting them in the dishwasher so there is no bleach residue on the dishware.

SOLUTIONS TO COMMON DISHWASHING PROBLEMS
Etching
If you have a cloudy film on your dishes that can’t be removed, it could be etching. To prevent etching, try
the following:
♦
♦
♦
♦
♦
♦
♦
Use less detergent. You may be using too much for the water hardness in your area. (See page 19.)
Use a good quality dishwasher detergent.
Do not overload the machine. Water should circulate freely to ensure adequate rinsing and draining.
Fill the rinse aid dispenser (unless you have soft water in your area; in which case you may not need a
rinse aid.) (See page 20.)
Use a lower water temperature setting.
Do not use the Heat Dry option.
Do not pre-rinse the dishes; just scrape off large food particles and bones.
Hard Water Spots
If you live in an area with hard water, after a time you may get hard water spots on your dishes. To remove
these spots, try the following:
1. Run dishes through a normal wash program.
2. Remove all metal dishware, such as cutlery, pans, etc., from the dishwasher.
3. Do not add detergent.
4. Pour two cups of vinegar into a bowl and set the bowl face up on the bottom rack of the dishwasher.
5. Run the dishes through a Normal wash program.
If this doesn’t work, try the same process with 1/4 cup of citric acid crystals (available at most drug stores)
instead of vinegar.
TROUBLESHOOTING
If you should experience a problem with your dishwasher, you should review the following list of frequently
encountered situations. It could save you the cost and inconvenience of a service call.
Even though the product is under warranty, if the problem is not caused by defective product workmanship
or materials, you will be charged for a service call. Refer to page 33 to determine what is and is not covered
under your warranty. If you’re still not sure, contact the Eurotech Advisory Center before you call a service
technician.
Detergent left in compartment
♦ Be careful not to load items so close to the dispenser that the cover will not open to release the detergent.
♦ The dispenser is not supposed to open when you use the Rinse program.
♦ Your dishwasher detergent should be fresh and stored tightly closed in a cool, dry place. Old or caked
detergent should be thrown away because it will not dissolve properly and will leave a gritty residue on
the dishware.
♦ Wait until you are ready to start the dishwasher to add the detergent.
♦ If you are using the Delay program, make sure the dispenser is dry before adding the detergent.
♦ The detergent compartment only opens in the main wash programs, not the Rinse program.
Dishwasher makes unusual noises
♦ This usually means that something is not loaded properly. Make sure the dishes are securely in place
and that nothing has fallen between the basket tines. Also, place small items in the cutlery basket and
close the lid.
Dishwasher leaks
♦ Use only unscented, granular automatic dishwasher detergent. Using a liquid detergent could cause
oversudsing and leakage.
♦ You should always use fresh detergent.
♦ The amount of detergent needed for your dishes depends on the hardness of the water in your area.
Contact your local utility company to learn the water hardness in your area then refer to the chart on
page 19 to determine the amount of detergent to use.
♦ Be careful not to overfill the rinse aid dispenser. Spilled rinse aid could cause oversudsing and lead to
overflowing. Wipe away any spills with a damp cloth.
♦ Make sure the dishwasher is level. (See the Installation Instructions section.)
30
♦ 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 to shorten the cycle times.
Dishwasher does not drain properly
♦ Make sure that the cycle was complete before you opened the dishwasher. If not, allow it to complete
and check again.
♦ Some water left in the sump area near the drain is normal.
♦ If the plumbing code in your area requires an air gap, make sure that it isn’t blocked or plugged.
♦ If the unit is connected to a garbage disposer, make sure the disposer is empty.
♦ If water backs up into the sink, check the garbage disposer and trap for blockage.
♦ Check the dishwasher filters and drain area for blockage. (See page 27.)
♦ Check for a kink in the drain hose.
Dishwasher does not fill properly
♦
♦
♦
♦
♦
Make sure the water supply is turned on.
Make sure the dishwasher is turned on and the door is closed securely.
Check for crimps in the water feed line.
Make sure the water inlet filter isn’t clogged. (See page 27.)
The system is designed to detect an overflow. When it does, it shuts off the circulation pump and turns
on the drain pump. (See “Overfill Protection” on page 28.)
Dishwasher will not start
♦
♦
♦
♦
♦
Make sure the dishwasher is turned on and the door is closed securely.
Make sure the Delay option is not selected.
Check that the water supply is connected properly and the water is turned on.
Make sure the power cord is properly plugged into the wall socket.
Check your fuse box for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

WASHING SPECIAL ITEMS
Most common dishware items can be safely washed in an automatic dishwasher. If you have any doubts
about a particular item, check with the manufacturer to see if it is dishwasher safe. If that isn’t possible, you
might wash one item of a set a few times and compare it to the rest of the set to determine if washing it in
the dishwasher had any affect on it.
NOTE: Eurotech has no control over what is put in our dishwashers once installed in a customer’s home.
You are solely responsible for what you wash in your Eurotech dishwasher.
Material
Aluminum
Dishwasher
Safe
Yes, with
caution
Information and Recommendations
Anodized aluminum may fade or darken. Patches and discoloration may appear, but they can be
removed with steel wool. Load aluminum utensils (such as a pie tin or roasting pan) where they do
not touch other dishes because this can cause gray or black marks. You can remove these spots
with a nonabrasive cleaner.
Cast Iron
No
The seasoning is lost and the iron rusts. Hand wash and dry immediately.
China
Yes, with
caution
China without decoration or with decoration protected by glaze is dishwasher
safe. However, you should arrange the objects so they do not touch each other or
they could be damaged.
China with a pattern on top of the glaze or with gold leaf decoration may fade. If
possible, check with the manufacturer. If that isn’t possible, wash one item over
an extended period then compare it with the colors and patterns of the rest of the
set. Wash in the Quick program on a low temperature setting.
Copper
Yes, with
caution
Do not wash copper in the same load as silver or silver plate. It could discolor the
silver items. Do not let copper items come in contact with stainless steel.
Crystal
No
Antiques and very delicate china should not be washed in the dishwasher. Certain
types of lead crystal may etch if machine washed. Check with the manufacturer.
Yes
Wash at a low temperature setting. Be sure to load crystal dishware so that it is
secure and will not fall over or knock against other dishware while being washed.
Dirilyte
No
Gold-colored flatware can become discolored.
Disposable
plastic items
No
Cannot withstand machine washing.
Flatware with
bonded handles
No
Certain types of adhesives may loosen when machine washed.
Glass
Yes
Exception: Milk glass may turn yellow.
Knives
No
Sharp kitchen knives may become dull if washed in very hot water and allowed to
contact other items during the wash. Wood handles may also warp, crack, or
loosen. Plastic handles may discolor. Check manufacturer’s washing instructions.
Lead crystal
No
Certain types of lead crystal may etch if machine washed.
Non-dishware
items
No
Never wash items such as electronic air cleaners, air filters of any kind, paint
brushes, etc. You could damage the dishwasher.
Nonstick
coatings
Yes
If marked “Dishwasher Safe.” After washing, wipe the nonstick coating area with
vegetable oil to maintain its nonstick quality.
Pewter
No
Pewter will tarnish when machine washed.
Plastic
Yes
If the item is labeled “Dishwasher Safe.” Otherwise, check with the manufacturer.
Always load plastic in the top basket. Do not use Heat dry. Do not wash disposable
plastic items.
Silver and
Silver plate
Yes, with
caution
Rinse these items if you’re not going to wash them immediately; salty or acidic
foods can stain if left on. Dry dishwasher detergent can produce black marks
which are difficult to remove. Do not put silver and silver plate in the same silverware
basket with stainless steel. Contact between these metals can damage silver.
Do not wash copper utensils in the same load. This could cause a brown film on
the silver. Also, adhesives used to attach some hollow-handled knives can loosen.
Stainless
Steel
Yes, with
caution
Rinse these items if you’re not going to wash them immediately; salty or acidic
foods can stain if left on. Dry dishwasher detergent can produce black marks
which are difficult to remove. Do not mix different types of stainless steel in the same load.
Tin
No
Tin will rust.
Wood
No
Unless marked “Dishwasher Safe” by the manufacturer. Wood can warp, crack or
lose shape with any kind of washing.
