WARNING!
For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire,
explosion, electric shock, and to prevent property damage, personal injury, or death.
WARNING! WATER HEATER SAFETY
Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a water heater that has not been used for two or more
weeks. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE.
If the hot water has not been used for two or more weeks, prevent the possibility of damage or injury by turning
on all hot water faucets and allowing them to run for several minutes. Do this before using any electrical appliance
connected to the hot water system. This simple procedure will allow any built-up hydrogen gas to escape. Since
the gas is flammable, do not smoke, use an open flame, or use the appliance during this process.
WARNING!
When using your dishwasher, follow basic precautions,
including the following:
„ Use this appliance only for its intended purpose „ Do not abuse, sit on, hang from, or stand on the door

Using the dishwasher.
Check the Water Temperature
The entering water should be at least 120°F (49°C) and not
more than 150°F (66°C) for effective cleaning and to prevent
dish damage. Check the water temperature with a candy or
meat thermometer.
Turn on the hot water faucet nearest the dishwasher,
place the thermometer in a glass and let the water run
continuously into the glass until the temperature stops rising.
Energy Smart
Energy Smart enables your dishwasher to reduce energy
consumption during periods of high energy costs. If you are
in an area where your electricity provider charges variable
rates at different times of the day, your dishwasher will
inform you of those times when you are paying the highest
rate. You can then either delay starting your dishwasher until
the rate goes down; or you can override the feature and run
your dishwasher at your convenience.
What you will need:

You may use tablet, packet, powder, liquid or gel automatic
dishwasher detergent. Make sure you use only detergents
specifically labeled for use in automatic dishwashers.
Never use liquid hand dish detergent in an automatic
dishwasher. Sudsing and poor wash performance will
result with the use of improper detergents.
Detergents should be stored in a dry location and in their
original container to prevent loss of effectiveness. Place
detergent in the cup just prior to starting the dishwasher
and then close the cover. The cover will open during the
wash cycle.
Filling the Detergent Dispenser
GE recommends using detergent in tablet or packet form.
Independent testing has shown this form of detergent is
very effective in the dishwasher. Cascade® Platinum
Pacs are an example of this type of detergent. Simply put
a tablet or packet into the main wash compartment and
slide to close the detergent cup cover. Please notice that
the tablet or packet must be placed in the main wash
compartment of the detergent cup. If the tablet or packet
is tossed in the bottom of the dishwasher, the detergent
will be flushed down the drain in a very short period of
time and will thus be wasted. Wash performance will be
very poor as a result.
If you choose to use detergent in powder, liquid or gel
form, the amount of detergent you use will be determined
by the hardness of your water, the temperature of your
water, and the food soil load inside the dishwasher.
Contact your water company to get information about
the hardness of the water in your area. Water hardness is
measured in grains per gallon. Use this information and
the table above to determine the amount of detergent
to use. You may purchase a hard water test strip
from GE. Call 1-877-959-8688 and ask for part number
WD01X10295. In Canada, call 1-800-661-1616.
Using too much detergent with very soft and/or very hot water
may cause a condition called etching on your glassware.
Etching is a permanent cloudiness in your glassware. This
condition is irreversible. However, using too little detergent will
cause poor wash performance.
Use the table as a starting point and then adjust the amount
of detergent you use. Use just enough to get good wash
performance. Using just the right amount of detergent will
provide great wash performance without wasting detergent or
etching glassware.
DO NOT USE HAND DISH DETERGENT
NOTE: Using a detergent that is not specifically designed
for dishwashers will cause the dishwasher to fill with suds.
During operation, these suds will spill out of the dishwasher
vents, covering the kitchen floor and making the floor wet.
Because so many detergent containers look alike, store the
dishwasher detergent in a separate space from all other
cleaners. Show anyone who may use the dishwasher the
correct detergent and where it is stored.
While there will be no lasting damage to the dishwasher, your
dishes will not get clean using a dishwashing detergent that is
not formulated for automatic dishwashers.
9
Loading the dishwasher.
For best dishwashing results, follow these loading guidelines. Features and appearance of racks and silverware
baskets may vary from your model.
Upper Rack
The upper rack is primarily for glasses, cups, and
saucers. For best wash performance, tilt cup and
glass openings toward the center of the rack. Other
items such as pots, pans, and plates may be placed
in the upper rack. This is also a secure place for
dishwasher-safe plastic items. The upper rack can
be used for odd sized utensils. Sauce pans, mixing
bowls, and other similarly shaped items should
be placed face down for best wash performance.
Ensure small plastic items are secure so that they
cannot fall on the heater at the bottom of the
dishwasher, potentially damaging the item. Some
models are equipped with a hidden heater, so
dishwasher safe plastic items can be placed in the
lower rack.
IMPORTANT: Ensure that items do not protrude
through the bottom of the rack or silverware basket
where they will block the rotation of the middle spray
arm. This could result in noise during operation and/
or poor wash performance.
IMPORTANT: Ensure items in the upper rack do not
interfere with the 3rd Rack (on some models) when
loading and unloading.
Clip
Nozzle
The Bottle Wash system (on some models) is
the ideal location to position baby bottles and
tall sports bottles. The Bottle Wash clips hold
bottles with small openings in place so water jets
are directed inside the bottles to clean hard to reach
areas. Clips can be installed or removed by simply
slipping the clip opening over the top of the nozzle.

Push
Upper Rack
The upper rack allows 2” of adjustment up or down
to accommodate large items. The upper rack may
be lowered by pushing the long flaps on each side of
the rack. This will allow you to lower the rack (see fig.
Upper Rack). To raise the rack, lift up on the rack until
the rack locks in place.
CAUTION:
A loaded upper
rack may be heavier than anticipated. To
prevent minor injury or damage to the
contents, do not raise or lower the upper
rack after the rack is loaded.
To add flexibility in loading, the utility shelf (on
some models) may be placed in the up or down
position or unfolded and placed in the lower
unfolded position. The shelf may also be used to
secure stemware such as wine glasses. Because
these stemware items come in various sizes, slowly
push the rack in to ensure the items do not bump
into the edges of the dishwasher, which may cause
damage to the items.
The fold down tines (on some models) provide
flexibility for extra-large and hard-to-fit items.
The tine rows can be adjusted to a vertical or
lay-down position.

loading, unloading, or transporting the
silverware or utensil trays. The trays may
contain sharp or heavy items. If items are
dropped from the trays or the trays are
dropped, injury could occur.
IMPORTANT NOTES:
These trays may be removed to allow for
easier loading and unloading, changing the
side that the trays are on, or to create extra
space for the upper rack.
„ Do not place cutlery of different materials
next to each other in the 3rd rack. Doing
show may cause discoloration of the
cutlery.
To remove a tray, fully extended the 3rd rack,
grasp both the front and back handles on one
tray and gently lift the tray out of the rack.
To replace the tray, grasp both handles and
gently place it on the rack so that the deepest
part is towards the center of the rack.
„ The trays are only meant to be used with a
GE 3rd rack dishwasher to hold silverware,
cooking utensils, and other small items.
Using the trays for any other purpose could
result in damage to the trays or damage to
anything interacting with the trays.
„ Ensure that the 3rd rack is fully closed
before shutting the dishwasher door.
Shutting the door with the rack partially
extended could cause damage to the
dishwasher.

Loading the dishwasher (cont.).
For best dishwashing results, follow these loading guidelines. Features and appearance of racks and silverware
baskets may vary from your model.
Silverware
Basket
20
Wire Loops
Silverware Basket
Place flatware in the removable silverware baskets.
Sharp objects, such as forks and knives, may be placed
with the handles facing up, in order to protect your
hands. For the best wash performance, place other
items such as spoons with the handles facing down.
Avoid allowing items to nest together, which may keep
them from being properly washed. When loading,
distribute items evenly in the basket.
The silverware baskets may also be used for small
items, such as measuring spoons, baby bottle nipples,
plastic lids, or corn cob holders. The silverware basket
covers can be closed to contain small items.
The Easy Access Silverware Baskets (on GDF570 and
DDT575 models) may be positioned on the front of
either the upper or lower racks. Secure the basket to
the rack using the wire loop on the front of the upper
and lower racks to engage the tabs on the rear of the
basket.
On other models, the silverware basket may be
positioned by placing the hooks on the back of the
basket over the top wire on the sides of the lower rack.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not load large or tall utensils
where they may block the detergent dispenser, mid
spray arm, or become trapped between the door and
the gasket when the door is closed.
GEAppliances.com
Silverware/flatware is loaded using the silverware basket lids. This ensures great wash performance of the
silverware. Loading in this manner prevents nesting and makes sure all items are washed uniformly.

Care and cleaning.
Cleaning the Exterior Door Panel
Before cleaning the front panel, make sure you
know what type of panel you have. Refer to the
last two letters of your model number. You can
locate your model number on the left-hand tub
wall just inside the door. If your model number
ends with BB, CC, WW, SA or ES then you have
a painted door panel. If your model number
ends with SS, then you have a Stainless Steel
door panel. If your model number ends with II,
then you have an Integrated door panel.
Stainless Steel Door Panel (model numbers
ending in SS)
The stainless steel panels can be cleaned with
Stainless Steel Magic or a similar product using
a clean, soft cloth. Do not use appliance wax,
polish, bleach or products containing chlorine
on Stainless Steel doors.
Follow the instructions below for cleaning the
door panel for your specific model.
You can order Stainless Steel Magic #WX10X29
through GE Parts by calling 1.877.959.8688 or
visiting GEApplianceparts.com. In Canada, call
1-800-661-1616.
Painted Door Panel (model numbers ending in
BB–black, CC–bisque, WW–white, SA-silver or
ES-slate)
Use a clean, soft, lightly dampened cloth, then
dry thoroughly.
Cleaning the Control Panel
To clean the control panel, use a lightly
dampened cloth. Then dry thoroughly.
Cleaning the Dishwasher Interior
To clean and de-odorize your dishwasher,
use citric acid or Lemi Shine®*, a detergent
additive. Lemi Shine will break up mineral
deposits, and remove hard water film and
stains. You can order citric acid #WD35X151
through GE Parts by calling 877-959-8688 or
visiting GEApplianceparts.com. In Canada,
call 1-800-661-1616. You can purchase
Lemi Shine at your local grocery store or by
calling GE at the numbers above and ask for
WX10X10019.
Stainless Steel Inner Door and Tub
The stainless steel used to make the dishwasher
tub and inner door provides the highest
reliability available in a GE dishwasher.
If the dishwasher tub or inner door should
be scratched or dented during normal use,
they will not rust or corrode. These surface
blemishes will not affect their function or
durability.
22
* Lemi Shine® is a registered trademark of Envirocon Technologies, Inc.
Do not use scouring pads or powder cleaners
because these products can scratch the finish.
Integrated Door Panel (model numbers ending
in II)
This is a custom installed door panel, and you
will need to refer to the cabinet manufacturers
recommendations for proper cleaning.
GEAppliances.com
Cleaning the Filters
Inspect and clean the filters periodically. This should be done every other month or so depending on usage. If there is a
decrease in wash performance or dishes feel gritty, this is also an indication the filters need to be cleaned.

Arm
Ultra-Fine Filter
To clean the Ultra-Fine Filter, remove the bottom
rack. Twist counterclockwise and remove the
Ultra-Fine Filter. Rinse filter with warm soapy
water and use a sponge to carefully remove any
stubborn particles. Scrubbing with scouring pads
or brushes can damage the filter. Once cleaned,
replace the Ultra-Fine Filter, and twist clockwise to
lock in place.
Fine Filter
To clean the Fine Filter (mesh plate), remove the
bottom rack. Remove the Ultra-Fine Filter.
Twist counterclockwise each of the two retaining
posts located toward the back bottom of the
tub, and remove the Fine Filter. Rinse filter with
warm soapy water. Scouring pads or brushes
can scratch the filter surface but a soft brush or
sponge may be needed to remove stubborn soils
or calcium deposits caused by hard water. Once
cleaned, replace the Fine Filter, the Ultra-Fine
Filter, and twist clockwise the two retaining posts
into place.
WARNING!
The retaining posts
can be a choke hazard for small children. Keep
out of reach of children.
Protect Against Freezing
If your dishwasher is left in an unheated place
during the winter, ask a service technician to:
3
Drain water from the water inlet line and
water valve. (Use a pan to catch the water.)
1
Turn off electrical power to the dishwasher.
Remove fuses or trip circuit breaker.
4
Reconnect the water inlet line to the water
valve.
2
Turn off the water supply and disconnect the
water inlet line from the water valve.
Air gap
Does Your Dishwasher Have an Air Gap?
Check the air gap any
time your dishwasher
isn’t draining well.
An air gap protects your dishwasher against water
backing up into it if a drain clogs. The air gap is not
a part of the dishwasher. It is not covered by your
warranty. Not all plumbing codes require air gaps,
so you may not have one.
The air gap is easy to clean.
1
Turn off the dishwasher and lift off the air gap
cover.
2
Remove the plastic cap under the cover and
clean with a toothpick.
3
Replace the cap and cover when the air gap is
clean.

What To Do
• Each button must be touched within 30 seconds of the others.
To relight, touch any button again or open the door and
unlock (top control).
• Clean the air gap. See the Care and cleaning section.
• Refer to the Installation Instructions for proper drain line installation.
• If you have an air gap, clean it. See the Care and cleaning section.
• If the dishwasher drains into a disposer, run disposer clear.
• Check to see if your kitchen sink is draining well. If not, you
may need a plumber.
• Warm, moist air comes through the vent during drying and when
water is being pumped out. This is necessary for drying.
• Do not interrupt the cycle by opening the door during the wash cycle.
• Raise the water heater temperature to between 120°F and 150°F.
• These are all normal. No action is required.
• Make sure dishes are properly loaded. See the Loading the
dishwasher section.
• Tall utensils may be placed in the upper rack to avoid bumping against
inner door during wash cycle.
• To remove the white film, run your dishes through a dishwasher cycle with
citric acid. Use a WD35X151 citric acid kit found online. Otherwise, use Lemi
Shine (WX10X10019) found at your local grocery store.
Pour the citric acid in the detergent cup and close the cover. Place the filmed
but otherwise clean glassware and dishware in the dishwasher. Leave
silverware and other metal items out of the dishwasher. Turn the dishwasher
on and let it run through a complete cycle without detergent. The glassware,
dishware, and dishwasher should come out film free. Alternatively,
a vinegar rinse may be used. Pour 1 cup of vinegar into dishwasher just after
the detergent cup opens and let the dishwasher complete its cycle.
This may be repeated several times a year as needed
The use of a rinse agent such as Cascade® Complete Rinse Aid may help
minimize a repeat build up of film. Also, the use of a highly rated detergent
such as Cascade® Platinum Pacs will help prevent film build-up.
