DISHWASHER FEATURES
Your dishwasher, illustrated below, cleans by spraying a mixture of hot, clean water, and detergent against the soiled surfaces
of your dishes and tableware. Each cycle starts with a pre-drain. Next, the dishwasher fills with water to a level even with the
heating element. This water is constantly pumped through the rotating spray arm and sprayed onto the dishes. Soiled water is
pumped out and replaced iwth clean water during a cylce. The number of water fills depends upon the cycle being used.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Dish Preparation
It is not necessary to rinse dishes before putting them
into the dishwasher. Just remove large pieces and
quantities of food, bones, pits, etc. Empty glasses and
cups. It may be necessary to presoak or lightly scour
firmly cooked-on or baked-on foods.
Foods such as mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar, lemon
juice and tomato-based products may cause
discoloration of stainless steel and plastics if allowed to
sit for a long period of time. Unless the dishwasher is to
be operated at once, it is best to rinse off these food
soils.
• Load dishes facing the center of the rack so that the
water spray from the rotating spray arm can reach
soiled surfaces.
• Be sure large items do not block the detergent
dispenser, preventing it from opening during the wash
cycle.
• To be sure an item is dishwasher safe, read the
manufacturer’s care instructions.
• If the dishwasher drains into a food disposer, be sure
disposer is completely empty before
dishwasher is started.
• To save energy, wash full loads.
• For best washing results, load correctly and avoid
overloading.
Energy Options
Hi-Temp Wash Option
When HI-TEMP WASH ON option is selected, the dishwasher
heats the water in the main wash to approximately 140°F
(60°C).
This increase in water temperature helps dishwasher
detergent remove food grease and soil from dishes more
effectively and aids in drying. HI-TEMP WASH option can be
used with all cycles except CHINA CRYSTAL and RINSE ONLY.
HI-TEMP WASH is automatically provided when HEAVY WASH
cycle is selected.
To turn off the HI-TEMP WASH option, press the pad a
second time.
Air Dry Option
The unit defaults to heated dry when it is started with any
cycle selected. This drying uses a combination of the heated
dry with rinse aid that achieves enhanced drying
performance. If you prefer to only have AIR DRY for dishes,
you will select AIR DRY and the uit will not energize the
heating element. This will reduce energy consumption, but
reduce drying performance.
Delay Start
The DELAY START option allows you to automatically delay
starting your dishwasher from 2 - 4 hours.
Make cycle selections, press the DELAY START key until the
desired delay LED is it, then close the door and the delay
time will start.
To cancel the delay and start the cycle before the delay
period is over, open the door and press the START/CANCEL
key. Close the door and the cycle will start.

PREPARING AND LOADING DISHES
Loading the Top Rack
Glasses and cups—Place glasses and cups
against outside pins at an angle. Cups with a concave
bottom will collect water.
Small plates and saucers—Place dishes
between middle two rows of pins.
Plasticware—Load plasticware in the top rack to
avoid melting.
Bowls—Place bowls between the middle 2 rows of
pins facing down.
Miscellaneous items—Place long handled
knives and utensils in top rack.
Cup Shelf—The cup shelf can be folded down over
short items (juice glasses, cups, etc.) for more loading
space. When using cup shelf, alternate items with layer
below so that water can reach all inside surfaces.
Loading the Silverware
Basket
Load sharp items with handles up. Be sure
items do not protrude through the holes in the basket and
stop the rotation of the spray arm.
Load silverware so items are mixed in each section to
prevent nesting. Water spray cannot effectively reach
nested items.
Loading the Bottom Rack
Large plates and platters—Place between
the support pins with soiled sides facing inward.
Bowls, casseroles and sauce pans—
Load upside down or at an angle facing inward. Slightly
tilting items will provide better drainage.
Pots and pans—Place upside down and at an
angle. Do not allow handles to protrude through bottom of
rack, blocking wash arm rotation. Load large items at the
sides and not across the front so they do not block the
detergent dispenser preventing it from opening.

Adding a Dish
1. Make sure there is a full wash cycle yet to be completed
so that any added items are thoroughly washed and
rinsed.
2. Unlatch door and wait for water action to stop.
3. Open door and add dish.
4. Firmly close door to latch and resume cycle.
DISHWASHER DISPENSER & DETERGENTS
Filling the Detergent Dispenser
The detergent dispenser has one covered and one
uncovered cup. Detergent in the uncovered cup falls into the
dishwasher when the door is closed. The covered cup
opens automatically to release detergent.
How much Detergent to use
•
Use only fresh automatic dishwashing detergent.
Other detergents will cause oversudsing.
•
Add detergent just before starting cycle.
•
Store detergent in a cool, dry location. Moist or
caked detergent will not dissolve properly.
•
Do not fill both washcups, unless you have very hard
water, see chart below*.
The amount of detergent to use depends on the water
hardness. Water hardness is measured in grains per gallon.
Using too little detergent can result in poor cleaning and
hard water filming or spotting. Using too much detergent in
soft water can cause a permanent film called etching. Your
local water company, water softener company or county
extension agent can tell you the water hardness in your
area.

Main Wash Cup
CAUTION
The use of industrial grade detergent can damage the
heating coil and other parts of the dishwasher leading to
damage to the unit and surrounding property. Use only
household grade automatic dishwasher detergents.
NOTE
Try adding more detergent at the beginning of the main
wash portion of the cycle. As a rule, use 1 teaspoon for
each grain above 12. Unlatch the door, open slowly and
add detergent to the bottom of the tub. Close the door to
latch and the dishwasher will continue through the cycle.

FACTORS AFFECTING PERFORMANCE
Rinse Aid
Rinse aid greatly improves drying and reduces
water spots and filming. Water “sheets” off dishes
rather than forming water droplets that cling and leave
spots.
A dispenser, located next to the detergent cup,
automatically releases a measured amount of rinse aid
during the last rinse. If spotting and poor drying are
problems, increase the amount of rinse aid dispensed by
rotating the dial to a higher number. The dial is located
under the dispenser cap. The indicator will be dark when
full and will show clear when it is time to refill.
Water Pressure
Water pressure should be between 20 and 120 pounds per
square inch. Low water pressure occurs most often during
periods of high water consumption, such as when laundry
or showers are being done. To determine if you have
enough water pressure, put a 2 quart container under fully
opened hot water faucet nearest the dishwasher. It should
fill in less than 14 seconds. Be sure all other faucets are
turned off during test.
Water Temperature
To add liquid rinse aid, turn dispenser cap 1/4 turn
counterclockwise and lift out. Pour in rinse aid until liquid
touches the indicated fill level. Replace cap.
Hot water is needed for best dishwashing and drying
results. Water entering dishwasher should be at least
120°F (49°C) to give satisfactory results.
Do not overfill since this can cause oversudsing. Wipe up
any spills with a damp cloth.
To check water temperature entering dishwasher:
The dispenser holds enough for 35 to 140 washes,
depending on setting.

• Turn on hot water faucet nearest dishwasher for
several minutes to clear cool water from pipes.
• Hold a candy or meat thermometer in stream of
water to check the temperature.
• If temperature is below 120°F (49°C), have a
qualified person raise the hot water heater
thermostat setting.
Important: Before starting a cycle, run hot water to clear
cool water from pipe.
Not selecting the AIR DRY option in combination
with rinse aid will enhance drying performance.
The energy required to use the AIR DRY option
costs pennies per cycle. You may choose to select
the AIR DRY option; however you will have items
in your dish load that will not be completely dry at
the end of the cycle.
CARE AND CLEANING

Citric Acid.
Important: The dishwasher motor is permanently
lubricated at the factory and does not need to be
oiled.
NOTE
Hard water may cause lime deposit buildup on the interior
of the dishwasher.
Care of Drain Air Gap
If a drain air gap was installed for your built-in dishwasher,
check to make sure it is clean so the dishwasher will drain
properly. Drain air gaps are usually mounted on countertop
and can be inspected by removing the cover. A drain air
gap is not part of your dishwasher and is not covered by
this warranty.
To Restore Service:
1. Reconnect the water, drain, and electrical power supply.
2. Turn on water and electrical power supply.
3. Fill both detergent cups and run dishwasher through a
NORMAL WASH Cycle.
4. Check connections to make sure they do not leak.
NOTE
See Installation Instructions for more details on disconnecting
and restoring service to your dishwasher.

CARE AND CLEANING
CAUTION
Property Damage Hazard
Freezing temperatures may cause water lines to
rupture. Be sure all supply lines to and circulating lines
within dishwasher are protected. Failure to do so could
result in property damage.
Cleaning the Spray Arm
The spray arm may need to be cleaned to insure that
there are no clogs to the spray arm jets and bearings
due to hard water chemicals.
To remove spray arm simply hold the spray arm in place
and turn the retaining nut clockwise and pull up on the
spray arm lifting off the shaft.
To clean the spray arm use warm soapy water using a
soft brush to clean the jets and bearings.
Cleaning the Filter
For optimum performance, your dishwasher is equipped
with a filter assembly featuring a main filter, cup and
fine filter as shown in the drawing above. All food
fragments are removed from the dishwasher as water
passes through the filter assembly.
Each part of the assembly should be cleaned often to
ensure that all food fragments are removed from the
dishes. To remove food fragments from the filter
assembly, the filters must be removed from the
dishwasher. To remove the filters, pull up on the edge
of the main filter. Next, rinse the main filter and fine
filter under running water. Cleaning with a brush may
also be necessary to remove any fragments trapped in
the filters. Once cleaning has been completed, simply
reassemble the filter as shown in the drawing above. To
ensure that the filter is fully seated, please press down
on the top of the main filter. Using the dishwasher
without a properly installed filter is not
recommended as it will reduce the cleaning
efficiency and may damage dishware.
10
To replace the spray arm simply set the spray arm on
the shaft, take the retaining nut and turn it counter
clockwise till it has locked into place.
CONNECTING AND DISCONNECTING THE PORTABLE DISHWASHER
The portable dishwasher must be connected to a faucet and electrical outlet each time it is used. Follow directions on this

COMMON DISHWASHING PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
Dishes not clean—Check pages 4 to 8 for
information on correct wash cycle, proper loading, water
temperature, water pressure, hard water, amount of
detergent, old and ineffective detergent, and dish
placement. To maximize wash performance clean the
filter of all large food particles after each wash. To
ensure that you clean the filter correctly refer to page
12.
Dishes not drying can be greatly improved by
using a rinse aid and hot water. Hot water raises
temperature of dishes to speed up drying. When loading,
invert cups and bowls so that water can run off. Avoid
nesting of articles. If dishes are not completely dry at
end of cycle (which may occur when COOL DRY setting is
used), open door, roll out racks, and allow dishes to air
dry.
Spotting—Spots form when hard water droplets
evaporate leaving a deposit. Low phosphate detergents
increase the problem in hard water. To prevent, use hot
water and a detergent with a higher level of phosphates
(preferably 8.7% or higher), or use more of a low
phosphate detergent. Be sure to use a rinse aid. If water
is very hard, it may be necessary to install a water
softener. Load glasses and plates so they have minimum
contact with racks and pins. Avoid overloading. Spotting
will occur where dishes and glasses touch.
Cloudy films and streaking
are usually
caused by a combination of hard water and an
insufficient amount of detergent. Low phosphate
detergents are also a factor. To correct, increase
amount of detergent, check water temperature and
always use a rinse aid. If water is very hard, it may be
necessary to install a water softener.
Etched film on glassware is caused by
using too much detergent in soft or softened water. This
film cannot be removed. It is more likely to occur on soft
leaded glass or expensive crystal. An early warning of
this condition is a cloudy iridescent appearance on
glasses. To prevent, be sure dishwasher is getting a full
fill of water. Water should reach base of heating
element. If water level is low, have water pressure
checked by a plumber. Use less detergent and make sure
water temperature is not higher than 150°F (66°C).
Underload to assure thorough rinsing. Use the COOL DRY
Option.
12
Chipped dishes and glasses
can result
from rough handling and improper loading. Do not put
glasses in direct contact with other items. Place glasses
securely against pins.
Crazing of older china and pottery
happens when items are subjected to very hot water.
Once crazing (fine cracks in the glaze) appears, it cannot
be removed. Do not machine wash again or condition
may worsen.
Coffee and tea stains can occur when water
contains traces of iron. To avoid stains, rinse cups out
immediately after use. Increase amount of detergent and
use a rinse aid. Water temperature should be
approximately 140°F (60°C). If problem persists, install a
water softener with an iron removal unit. To remove
stains, hand wash cups in solution of 1/2 cup (120 ml)
bleach and a quart (1 L) of warm water. Rinse
thoroughly.
Gray-black stains on dishes are caused
by manganese in water supply. To correct, install a
manganese filtering system into house water supply.
Reddish-brown stains on dishes,
glasses and interior are caused by iron in
water. To avoid iron stain, increase detergent, use water
heated to approximately 140°F (60°C) and a rinse aid. It
may be necessary to install a water softener with an iron
removal unit. To improve appearance, use a commercial
rust and lime scale remover.
Plastic items can lose their shape due to high
temperatures of automatic dishwashing. Read labels
before washing. Place washable items in top rack away
from heating element.
Discoloration of plasticware by some
foods, such as tomato sauce, can stain plasticware. If
stained, soak item in solution of 1 tablespoon dishwasher
detergent and a quart of hot water or in a solution of 1/2
cup (120 ml) bleach and a quart (1 L) of hot water.
Fading of patterns and metallic
trim is due to many washings, detergent and hot
water. Most of today’s china is dishwasher safe.
Antique, handpainted china, and handpainted pottery
should be washed by hand.
COMMON DISHWASHING PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
Do not place silver next to or touching
Troubleshooting
stainless steel utensils in dishwasher silverware basket.
This can cause pitting of stainless steel blades. (Most
silver knives have stainless steel blades. Do not let
blades touch other stainless steel utensils during wash
cycle.)
Before calling for service, review this list. It may
save you both time and expense. This list includes
common experiences that are not the result of
defective workmanship or material.
Tarnish on silver plate occurs when worn
It is normal to hear swishing and pulsating sounds.
down to the base metal and turns a bronze color when
exposed to hot water and detergent. Remove bronzing
by soaking item in vinegar for 10 minutes or use a silver
polish. For permanent protection, have silver replated.
Silver tarnish can be caused by prolonged
contact with air or with foods containing sulphur like
eggs, mayonnaise, or seafood. Contact with undissolved
detergent can also cause tarnish. To prevent this, rinse
silver soon after use. Use care not to pour detergent
directly onto silver. Remove tarnish with a silver polish.
Discoloration of stainless steel—
Food soil can create a film or discoloration. To avoid,
rinse stainless items promptly. Food soil films can be
removed with a stainless steel cleanser or mild cleanser.
Rinse thoroughly.
Pitting of stainless steel is caused by
prolonged contact with detergent granules and foods like
salt, mayonnaise, fruits, butter or milk. To prevent, rinse
soon after use. Do not allow detergent to fall directly
onto stainless steel items.
Discoloration of aluminum—Anodized
(colored) aluminum cannot withstand machine washing.
Resulting loss of color is permanent. Other aluminum
may darken when machine washed. To decrease chance
of discoloration, do not place aluminum directly beneath
detergent dispenser. To brighten darkened items, scour
with soap filled steel wool pads. For severely darkened
pans, simmer an acidic food or a solution of
2 teaspoons (10 ml) cream of tartar per quart
(1 L) of water for 1/2 hour. Scour with soap filled steel
wool pad, rinse and dry.
Knife handles become loose when the
cement is exposed to very hot water. Test wash a single
knife for several weeks. Damaged knives should be
professionally re-cemented.
Noise problems?
These sounds mean that water is circulating through the
dishwasher.
It is normal to hear motor sounds before water enters
tub.
Loud ticking usually means something is hitting wash
arm. See Preparing and Loading Dishes.
Vibrating or rattling sounds can mean dishes are
touching each other. See Preparing and Loading
Dishes.
O
perating problems?
Be sure door is firmly closed. It is normal for dishwasher
to pause between cycles.
Leaking?
Check for items sticking out of dishwasher that could
prevent door from closing and sealing properly. Use only
fresh dishwashing detergent to avoid oversudsing.
Water coming through door vents? When a dish is added
after starting dishwasher, wait a few seconds before
latching door. This permits entering cold air to expand
slowly inside dishwasher.
Dishes not dry?
Check to see if rinse aid dispenser needs refilling.
Hot water temperature may be too low (min. 120°F
49°C). If COOL DRY option is being used, additional
drying time may be required with door open.
W
ater in tub?
A small amount of water in bottom of tub is normal. It
keeps water seal lubricated.
Detergent left in cup?
Detergent may be too old. Discard old detergent.Use fresh
detergent. Dishes may not be loaded properly. Be sure
items do not protrude from front of bottom rack
preventing detergent cup from opening.
