Introduction
Congratulations on your new Equator dishwasher. In addition to its award winning design, this is a highly
sophisticated engineered product that will give you many years of satisfaction. Please spend a few moments
to read te Owners Manual. This will show you ways to best utilize your valuable purchase.
Here are 10 of the best reasons for buying your dishwasher
1. Energy, Water, Sewage and Detergent Savings.
Your dishwasher uses only about 5 gallons of water in a Normal load (compared with 11-14 gallons in
regular dishwashers). The water saving also results in energy savings since there is less water to be
heated. Less water requires less detergent to be used, and also results in a reduced sewage bill.
2. Water Heating to 162 F (72 C).
The water is heated to 162 F in the Pots and Pans wash. Hotter water breaks down the detergent better
and provide for a better wash. At this temperature, the dishes are sterilized.
3. Upper Flexible Rack
The upper rack can be raised or lowered with a simple pull of the rack. This is a unique patent pending
innovation that makes using full size plates in both upper and lower racks easy to do.
4. 1/2 Load Wash
With the press of a button, only the top rack can be used if required. The dishwasher can be run without
waiting to be filled, and cuts down the use of a water that is used. When the upper rack is lowered, full
size dinner plates can be washed. The silverware basket is designed to also fit in the top rack. This
feature is ideal for small families that want to do their dishwashing in smaller loads.
5. Concealed Water Heater
The water heater has been concealed below the tub. This is especially useful when plastic items fall from
the rack onto the tub floor. There is no risk of any burnt items from the heating element.
6. Internal leak detection
Your dishwasher is equipped with a mechanism that detects the slightest water leak within thre drum,
which automatically cuts off the water supply.
7. Extra quiet
Your dishwasher is extremely quiet and the noise level and the quietness has been measured at 38 dBA
for acoustic pressure and 50 dBA for acoustic energy. This is due to the single piece molded door,
fiberglass insulation and an additional rubber based inner lining on 5 sides of the dishwasher (excluding
the bottom). In fact, you may need to put your ear to the dishwasher to hear it running! It is ideal for
operating at night.
3
8. Six Wash optios
There are 6 wash options to cover all the requirrements. These include Rinse & Hold, Pots and Pans,
Normal, Economy, China/Crysta and Fast Wash (about 20 minutes)
9. 3 level wash
In addition to the upper and lower spray arm, water is sprayed from a multi-directional sprinkler located at
the top of the dishwasher. The 3 level wash system sprays water in 5 directions and provides for greater
wash efficiency.
10. Rack features
The lower basket offers collapsible plate tines on the left side. This is ideal for washing pots and pans. All
movable parts are marked in gray color.
The upper rack features movable supports and a knife holder. There is also a 4-position holder to support
glasses of different sizes as well as bowls. There is also a convenient knife holder which offers safety in
placing knives for washing.

Important Safety Instructions
WARNING- When using your dishwasher, follow these basic safety precautions to reduce risk of fire,
electric shock and/or injury to person(s), including the following:
•
Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.
•
Use the dishwasher only for its intended function.
•
Use only detergent or wetting agents recommended for use in a dishwasher and keep them
out of reach of children.
•
When loading items to be washed:
•
Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to damage the door seal; and
•
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.
•
Do not operate your dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are properly in place.
•
Do not tamper with controls.
•
Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish rack of the dishwasher.
•
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 such a period, before using the dishwasher turn on all hot water faucets
and let the water flow 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.

Combination Detergent & Rinse Aid Dispenser
Amount to use
For optimum performance, each wash program,
except Rinse & Hold, requires a certain amount of
Rinse Aid be dispensed. The dispenser is factory
preset to automatically dispense 0.07 ounce of liquid
per wash program. Depending on the quality of water,
it may be necessary to adjust the amount dispensed.
To check whether or not the Rinse Aid dispense
volume is properly set, examine your tableware and
glassware following a completed wash program:
• Increase Setting, if there are dried water spots
on the surface of these items.
• Decrease Setting, if there are traces of water
on these items.
Detergent Dispenser
Fill the dispenser with detergent unless selecting a
Rinse & Hold program. Gently close the lid. The
detergent will be dispensed automatically during the
wash cycle.
Adjusting Rinse Aid Dispense Setting
The dispenser has a CONTROL "C" which regulates
the amount of Rinse Aid dispensed. Rotate the plug
in the container to the position required to adjust the
dosage. The numeric dosage setting corresponds
directly to the volume of rinse aid dispensed. eg.
When the control is pointing at the number " 2 " the
dispenser will emit 0.07 ounce of rinse aid in the final
rinse segment of each wash program.
Selecting the Correct Amount of Detergent
Fill the large compartment of the dispenser with
approximately ONE tablespoon of detergent for all
programs.
When running Pots & Pans Wash also place an
additional ONE tablespoons or so of detergent to the
small compartment of the dispenser.
Remember, less than the recommended amount of
detergent is required if the dishwasher is connected
to a soft water supply.
Rinse Aid Liquid Level
There are two indicators to let you know when the
Rinse Aid Dispenser requires filling:
Never sprinkle detergent directly onto tableware.
Always use a detergent made specifically for
automatic dishwashers.
1. Control Panel Light Indicator - As a convenient
reminder, an indicator light on the control panel will
illuminate whenever the Rinse Aid Dispenser is
empty and requires refilling.
2. Transparent Sight-Glass - The Rinse Aid liquid
level can also be viewed through the SIGHT
GLASS "D". When the sight-glass is completely
"❍" CLEAR, the dispenser is empty. A DARK "●",
sight-glass indicates there is still Rinse Aid in the
dispenser.
Rinse Aid Dispenser
Use Rinse Aid in the dishwasher to obtain the best
possible drying result while eliminating water spots
on your tableware and glassware. The automatic
Rinse Aid Dispenser releases a measured quantity
of Rinse Aid into the final Rinse segment of each
wash program.
Filling the Rinse Aid Dispenser
To fill the liquid Rinse Aid dispenser, follow these
steps:
1. Open Dispenser «A».
2. Pour the liquid into opening «B» and, without
allowing it to overflow, fill the dispenser.
3. Close the Dispenser.
Note: A full dispenser set to dispense level " 2 " should
yield approximately 60 wash programs before refilling
becomes necessary.
Buttons
When buttons are in the “IN” position, they are OFF.
Push buttons out to activate functions.
Always wipe away any drops that may have spilled
outside the dispenser.

Helpful Hints
Problem with:
Possible Cause/Cure:
Too much foam in the wash solution
The detergent dosage should be decreased. Detergent in use must be
designated for an automatic dishwasher.
White spots, streaks or film on dishware
Check for correct dosage of detergent. Ensure Rinse Aid dispenser
is not empty, consider increasing dosage. See section regarding
Rinse Aid dispenser. If present, check properly functioning
household water softener.
Tarnishing/ rusting of stainless steel
Do not leave covered with salt or acid foodstuffs. Use Rinse & Hold
program, if wash program not started immediately after loading. Do
not wash in direct contact with silver-place in separate sections of
the cutlery basket. Do not leave in a damp dishwasher for long
periods - drying by hand is best. Check household water softener is
functioning correctly.
Tarnishing of silverware
Do not leave covered with salt or acid foodstuffs. Use Rinse & Hold
program if wash program not started immediately after loading. Do not
allow undissolved detergent to come into contact with silver,otherwise
black spots occur. Keep silver separate from other metals. Wash
with a good detergent containing tarnish inhibitor. Check household
water softener is functioning correctly.
Tarnishing of aluminum
Usually caused by hot water - tarnish is not injurious in any way, but
is unsightly. If your preference is to wash such items in the dishwasher versus by hand, remove these items before the final hot rinse
has begun.
Colored aluminum
Color can be removed by hot alkali. These items not recommended
for washing in an automatic dishwasher.
Crystal glass, Glasses & other glassware
Stack carefully to avoid rubbing and jabbing. Excessively softened
water can damage glass. Check household water softener is
functioning correctly. Susceptible to damage by hot water check
suitability for use in a dishwasher.
Glaze decorations
Some items especially antiques, are not safe in a dishwasher. Wash a
sample piece of suspect ware for a few weeks to check suitability.
Short washing cycles and lower temperatures will help minimize
problems and keep decorations brighter.
Handles
Some glued on handles will not be safe at high temperatures. Bone,
wood or plastic can be susceptible to hot water. Test one piece by
washing for a few weeks.
Pieces of cutlery produced from two types of metal are susceptible to
electrolytic corrosion. Knives produced with stainless steel blades
and silver handles can corrode if left in the dishwasher.
Plastics
Thermosetting plastics can dull or crack in hot water.
Thermoplastics can melt. Special care may be needed. Most plastic
items will not dry well due to the nature of the material.
Some hand drying may be necessary.
