Safety
safety
and the safety
of others
is very
important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey
all safety messages.
This is the safety alert symbol
This symbol alerts you to hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will be preceded by the safety alert symbol and the word "DANGER" or
"WARNING." These words mean:
You _
be killed or seriously injured if you don't
follow instructions.
You _
be kilied or seriously Injured if you don't
follow instructions.
All safety messages will identify the hazard, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: When using the dishwasher,
follow basic precautions, including the following:
• Do not operate the dishwasher unless all enclosure
panels are properly in place.
• Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.
• Do not tamper with controls.
• Use the dishwasher only for its intended function.
• Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish racks
of the dishwasher.
• Use only detergents or rinse agents recommended
for use in a dishwasher and keep them out of the
reach of children.
• When loading items to be washed:
1) Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to
damage the door seal; and
2) Load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce
the risk of cut-type injuries.
• Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked
"dishwasher safe" or the equivalent. For plastic
items not so marked, check the manufacturer's
recommendations.
• Do not touch the heating element during or
immediately after use.
SAVE THESE

,,To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play
in or on the 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 such a
period, 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.
• Remove the door to the washing compartment when
removing an old dishwasher from service or discarding it.

The ULTRA
WASH*
Soil Removal
Your dishwasher's new ULTRA WASH Soil Removal
System is designed to give you sparkling clean dishes in
the shortest amount of time with the least amount of
energy necessary. The ULTRA WASH Soil Removal
System includes a heavy duty grinder that acts as a food
disposer to grind and dispose of large food particles.
Here's how the ULTRA WASH Soil Removal
System works:
1. When you load the dishwasher, all you need to do is
remove bones, large chunks, or burned-on food. Any
remaining food will be ground up and disposed.
2. Hot water fills the dishwasher to a level near the bottom of the overfill protector.
3. Detergent is added at the correct times from the detergent dispenser, and hot water is pumped through the
ULTRA WASH pump.
4. Food particles are removed from dishes, pots and
pans, tableware, and cutlery as the dishwasher sprays
a mixture of hot water and detergent through two
spray arms against their soiled surfaces.
5. Food soil in the dishwasher is held in an accumulating
chamber so it does not recirculate into the dishwasher.
6. Water is pumped again through the ULTRA WASH
pump to remove soil particles from the water, and
"hold" them in the accumulating chamber.
7. Soil in the ULTRA WASH Soil Removal System is
disposed down the drain with the wash water.
8. Fresh, hot water enters the dishwasher, sprays on the
dishes to rinse them, and the rinse water is pumped
through the ULTRA WASH Soil Removal System to
remove any remaining soil.
9. Soil that is held in the ULTRA WASH Soil Removal
System is disposed down the drain with the
rinse water.
10. Final rinse water is heated and a rinse agent is added
to prepare the dishes for drying.

Electrically ground dishwasher.
Do not push down on open door.
Doing so can result in serious injury or cuts.
Connect ground wire to green ground
connector in terminal box.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death, fire, or electrical shock.
GROUNDING
• For a grounded, cord connected dishwasher:
The dishwasher must be grounded. In the event
of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce
the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least
resistance for electric current. The dishwasher is
equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding
conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an appropriate outlet that is installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.
WARNING:
Improper connection of the equipment
grounding conductor can result in a risk of
SAVE THESE
INSTRUCTIONS
electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or
service representative if you are in doubt whether the
dishwasher is properly grounded. Do not modify the
plug provided with the dishwasher; if it will not fit the
outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.
For a permanently connected dishwasher:
The dishwasher must be connected to a grounded
metal, permanent wiring system, or an equipmentgrounding conductor must be run with the circuit
conductors and connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the dishwasher.
INSTRUCTIONS
Starting
your dishwasher
for everyday
Here is an overview for loading and running your dishwasher. Refer to the noted pages for more details of
each step.
1. The ULTRA WASH* Soil Removal System is designed
to remove food particles from the wash and rinse
water. Remove only large chunks of food and bones
from your dishes.
2. Properly load the dishwasher Iml. Make sure nothing

Loading Your
Dishwasher
Preparing
to load your
dishwasher
• Load correctly for best washing results. Incorrect loading may cause poor washing and the need to rewash all
or part of the load.
• Wash full loads. Running a half-filled dishwasher uses
the same amount of electricity and hot water as a fully
loaded machine.
Loading

• To save water and energy, do not rinse dishes before
putting them into the dishwasher.
• Remove large pieces of food, fruit pits, bones, and
other hard items. The ULTRA WASH* module will
remove food particles from the water. The module contains a chopping device which will reduce the size of
food items.
NOTE: If hard items such as fruit seeds, nuts, and egg
shells enter the ULTRA WASH module, you might hear
chopping, grinding, crunching, or buzzing sounds.
Those sounds are normal when hard items enter the
module. Do not let metallic items (such as pot handle
screws) get into the ULTRA WASH module. They could
damage the ULTRA WASH module.
• Foods

period of time. Run a Quick Rinse cycle to keep
moist if.you do not plan to wash them soon.
• Load dishes so soiled surfaces face the rotating
spray arms.
• Load dishes so they are not stacked or overlapping, if
possible. It is important for the water spray to reach all
soiled surfaces for best washing. For best drying, water
must be able to drain from all surfaces.

Placing them over the prongs can lead to breakage.
• Secure lightweight items.
• China, crystal, and other delicate items must not touch
each other during dishwasher operation. Damage
may occur.
• Load plastic items in the top rack only. Only plastic
items marked "dishwasher safe" are recommended.
• Load plastic items so the force of the spray does not
move them during the cycle.
• To avoid chipping, do not let stemware touch other
items.
• Small bowls, pans, and other utensils can be placed in
the top rack.
• Load items so they do not cover third level wash tower.

• Use automatic dishwashing detergent only. Other
detergents are too mild and much too sudsy.
• Add detergent just before starting cycle.
• Store tightly closed detergent in a cool, dry place.

How much
detergent
Main wash section
Pre-wash section
to use
• The amount of detergent to use depends on the hardness of your water and the type of detergent. If you use too little,
dishes won't be clean. If you use too much in soft water, glassware will etch.
• Find out your water's hardness by asking the water softener department
department.
WATER HARDNESS
AMOUNT OF DETERGENT
Soft to Medium Hard Water
0 to 6 grains per gallon
For normal loads:
Medium to Hard Water
7 to 12 grains per gallon
in your local Sears store or your local water
• Partially fill the Main Wash section (2 tablespoons or 30 grams)
• Fill the Pre-Wash section (2 tablespoons or 30 grams)
NOTE: Add only 1 tablespoon or 15 grams of detergent to the Pre-Wash section if
dishes are prerinsed or water is very soft.
For heavily soiled loads:
• Fill the Main Wash section (3 tablespoons or 45 grams)
• Fill the Pre-Wash section (2 tablespoons or 30 grams)
For normal and heavily soiled loads:
• Fill the Main Wash section (3 tablespoons or 45 grams)
• Fill the Pra-Wash section (2 tablespoons or 30 grams)
NOTE: Fill amounts shown are for standard powdered detergent. Amounts may vary if you use liquid or concentrated
powdered detergent. Follow instructions on the package when using liquid dishwasher detergent or concentrated powdered detergent.

Using
the rinse
agent
dispenser
A rinse agent greatly improves dish drying and helps prevent spots or streaks. The rinse agent helps water flow off
dishes and keeps water from forming droplets. A small
amount of rinse agent automatically releases into the final
rinse water.
Keep the rinse agent dispenser filled with a liquid
rinse agent. For best drying results, periodically check
the dispenser as follows to see if it needs filling:
• Check center of rinse aid indicator cap I_11. Clear
means it needs filling.
OR
• Remove rinse aid indicator cap. An "E" is visible at the
bottom of the dispenser when empty I?11.
To fill dispenser:
1. Open dishwasher door completely.
2. Remove rinse aid indicator cap.
3. Add rinse agent il.
Fill only to smallest opening in
lower part of dispenser. Overfilling may cause rinse
agent to leak out. This will not harm the dishwasher,
but could cause oversudsing.
4. Clean up any spilled rinse agent with a damp cloth.
5. Replace rinse aid indicator cap. Keep it closed tightly.
NOTES:
• Your dishwasher is designed to use a liquid rinse agent.
Do not use a solid or bar-type rinse agent.
• The rinse agent dispenser holds 6 ounces (175 mL).
Under normal conditions, this lasts about 3 months.
• You do not have to wait until the dispenser is empty
before refilling, but do not overfill it.
Water
temperature
tips
Hot water dissolves and activates the dishwashing detergent. Hot water also dissolves grease on dishes and
helps dry glasses spot-free. For best dishwashing results,
water must be at least 120°F (49°C) as it enters the dishwasher. Loads may not wash as well if the water temperature is too low.
To check water temperature:
1. Run hot water at the faucet closest to your dishwasher
for at least 1 minute.
2. Measure the water temperature with a candy or meat
thermometer placed in the running stream of water [].
3. If the water temperature at the faucet is below 120°F
(49°C), have a qualified person raise the water heater's
thermostat setting.

Hard water or high mineral
content in water
Conditioning the final rinse water with a liquid rinse agent
helps eliminate spotting and filming. Keep the dispenser
full with a rinse agent at all times.
Water temperature is too low
If needed, turn home water heater up to ensure water
entering dishwasher is 120°F (49°C) minimum. Refer to
the "Water temperature tips"section page 10.
Use of incorrect detergents
Incorrect amount of
detergent
Use recommended dishwasher detergents only.
Refer to the "Using the detergent dispenser" section,
page 9. Heavy soil and/or hard water generally require
extra detergent.
Use of ineffective detergents
Detergent should be fresh. Store in a cool, dry place,
preferably in an airtight container. Discard lumpy detergent.
Insufficient fill caused by low
water pressure
Home water pressure should be 20 to 120 psi
(138-828 kPa) for proper dishwasher fill. A booster pump
on the water supply may be necessary if pressure is too
low.
NOTE: To remove spots and film from dishes, try a
vinegar rinse,
1, Wash and rinse as usual using the No Heat Dry option.
2. Remove all metal items.
3. Put 2 cups (500 mL) white vinegar in a container on
the bottom rack.
4. Run dishwasher through complete washing cycle.
Vinegar will mix with wash water.
Silica film or etching
(silica film is a milky,
rainbow-colored
deposit; etching is a
cloudy film)
16
A water chemical reaction
with certain types of glassware. Usually caused by
some combination of soft
or softened water, alkaline
washing solutions, insufficient
rinsing, ovedoading
the dishwasher, and heat
of drying.
It may not be possible to prevent problem, except by
hand washing. To slow this process, use a minimum
amount of detergent but not less than 1 tablespoon per
load. Use a liquid rinse agent and underload the
dishwasher to allow thorough rinsing. Silica film and
etching are permanent and cannot be removed. Use the
No Heat Dry option.

Remove by washing dishes (after food soil has been
removed) with 1 teaspoon (5 mL) to 1 tablespoon (5 mL)
of citric acid crystals added to covered section of
detergent dispenser. Do not use detergent. Follow with a
Normal Wastl cycle with detergent. If treatment is needed
more often than every other month, the installation of an
iron removal unit is recommended.
Black or gray marks
on dishes
Aluminum items
Aluminum items should be loaded so that they will not
rub against dishes during washing. Throwaway aluminum
items should not be washed in the dishwasher because
they may break down and cause marking. Aluminum
markings can be removed by using a mild abrasive
cleanser.
Orange stains on
plastic dishes or
dishwasher interior
Large amounts of tomatobased foods in dishes placed
in the dishwasher
Stains may gradually fade over time. Regular use of
heated drying may cause stains to fade slower. Stains
will not affect dishwasher performance. Regular use of
Quick Rinse cycle or No Heat Dry option will reduce the
likelihood of staining.

delicate for automatic dishwashing and should be hand
washed; for example: antiques, feather-edged crystal,
and similar types.
