Dishwasher Features
Your dishwasher cleans by spraying a mixture of hot water and detergent through the spray arms
against soiled surfaces. Each cycle begins with a pre-drain. Next, the dishwasher fills with water
covering the filter area. Water is then pumped through the filter and spray arms. Soil particles go
down the drain as the water is pumped out and replaced with clean water. The number of water fills
will vary with the cycle being used.

Operating Your Dishwasher!
Normal Operating
Sounds
This dishwasher does not sound like most
dishwashers—IT'S QUIETER.
The new Precision Wash System™ uses
energy efficient motors for the wash and
drain portions of the cycle you select. Each
cycle has a series of water fills and drains
for washing and rinsing dishes. As each
cycle begins, you may–or may not–hear the
drain motor.
Wash Cycle Selections
Note: Cycle times are approximate and will
vary with options selected. Hot water is
necessary to activate dishwasher detergent
and melt fatty food soils. An automatic sensor
will check the incoming water temperature and,
if it is not hot enough, the timer will be delayed
for automatic water heating in the main wash of
all cycles. This happens even when HI-TEMP
WASH option has not been selected. When HITEMP WASH is selected, an even higher
temperature will be guaranteed to handle
heavier soil loads.
The next sound you will hear is the
splashing water as it enters the tub. Then the
lower arm rotates and circulates water. This
is followed by a pause and a slightly different
sound as the middle arm sprays water. If you
listen closely, you will hear the change in
sound as the wash action switches from one
arm to the other.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: If you compare
this dishwasher to previous models, you
may be surprised at what you DON'T
hear!
4
Operating Instructions (continued)
When HI-TEMP WASH option is selected, the
light above the pad will come on and remain on
until end of cycle. To turn off the HI-TEMP
WASH option, press the pad a second time. The
light above the pad will turn off.
Pots Pans
(115 minutes) (2 washes, 5 rinses, dry)
(8.4 gallons) (7.0 imp. gallons) (31.8 liters)
For pots, pans, casseroles and dinnerware
with dried-on or baked-on soils:
• Select HI-TEMP WASH and other desired
OPTIONS.
Hi-Temp Rinse
A HI-TEMP RINSE of approximately 145°F
(63°C) will automatically be provided in the final
rinse if HI-TEMP WASH option has been
selected. This higher temperature helps speed
drying and reduce spotting.
Normal Wash
(95 minutes) (2 washes, 3 rinses, dry)
(6.0 gallons) (5.0 imp. gallons) (22.7 liters)
For regularly soiled dishes and silverware.
No Heat Dry
Short Wash (Both Racks)
NO HEAT DRY option saves electricity since the
heating element is off during drying portion of
cycle. When selected, the light above the pad
will come on and remain on until end of cycle.
To speed the drying process, open the door
slightly after the cycle is complete. Some water
droplets may remain on door and tub and in
areas where dishes touch silverware basket and
rack.
(78 minutes) (1 wash, 3 rinses, dry)
(4.8 gallons) (4.0 imp. gallons) (18.2 liters)
For lightly soiled or pre-rinsed dishes and
silverware.
Short Wash (Upper Rack)
(available select models)
(70 minutes) (1 wash, 2 rinses, dry)
(3.6 gallons) (3.0 imp. gallons) (13.6 liters)
For lightly soiled or pre-rinsed dishes and
silverware when you do not have a full load.
To select heated dry, press the pad a second
time. The light above the pad will turn off.
Heated dry provides faster drying since the
heating element is on during the drying portion
of the cycle. With either option, a fan circulates
the air inside the dishwasher to speed drying.
To Cancel a Cycle
You can cancel a cycle anytime during the
cycle. Press START/CANCEL pad and the
dishwasher will start a 90 second drain. At the
end of the drain, select the desired cycle.
You may see water vapor coming from vent
during drying portion of cycle. The vent is closed
during washing to hold moisture and sound
inside and then opens for drying. The drying
option may be changed at any time during the
cycle and affects only the drying period.
Options Selections
Opening the door longer than one minute during
the dry cycle cancels the selected dry program.
Hi-Temp Wash
When HI-TEMP WASH option is selected, the
dishwasher heats water in main wash to
approximately 140°F (60°C). Wash action will
continue but timer will not advance until proper
temperature is reached. 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.
Delay Start
The DELAY START option allows you to delay
starting your dishwasher for 4 hours. Press the
DELAY START pad and the light above the pad
will come on and remain on until cycle starts. To
cancel the DELAY START option and begin the
cycle before the delay period is over, press the
START/CANCEL pad.
Note: To start the dishwasher using the same
cycle and options selected on the previous
wash, just press START/CANCEL pad.

Preparing and Loading Dishes (continued)
Upper Rack Option
(available select models)
Loading the Top Rack
Important: Do not cover the funnel when
loading.
SHORT WASH—UPPER RACK option can be
used to wash a wide assortment of items
when you don't have a full load. Also, when the
upper rack fills up with glasses and the lower
rack is still empty, you don't have to wait
anymore for clean glasses.
The upper rack is designed for flexibility in
loading a wide variety of items including cups,
glasses, stemware, small plates, bowls, etc.
Load plastic items in top rack only. Melting
may occur if placed in bottom rack.
Be sure nothing protrudes through the bottom
of the rack to block rotation of middle spray
arm.
Do not cover funnel
On some models, a cup shelf can be folded
down over short items for more loading space.
When using the cup shelf, alternate items with
layer below so that water can reach all inside
surfaces.
Note: Utility basket available on select
models.

Preparing and Loading Dishes (continued)
Utility Basket
(available select models)
The utility basket has two dividers that can be
opened to hold longer items or closed for
small items like measuring spoons, bottle
stoppers, etc. The covers on each end can be
folded down out of the way or closed to keep
small items inside. The utility basket also
doubles as a silverware basket when using the
SHORT WASH—UPPER RACK option.
Fold-down Tines
(available select models)
The fold-down tines in the lower rack makes
easy loading of those extra large and hard-tofit items. The tines may be left up for normal
use or folded down for more flexible loading.
Loading the Bottom Rack
The lower rack is best for plates, saucers,
bowls and cookware. Large items should be
placed along the edge so they don't block the
spray arm rotation. For best results, place
bowls, casseroles and sauce pans with soiled
surface facing down or toward the center. Tilt
slightly for better drainage.
Make sure tall items do not block spray arm
rotation.
Be sure pan handles do not protrude through
the bottom of the rack and block the spray arm
rotation.

Dishwasher Dispenser & Detergents
•
•
•
Use only fresh automatic dishwashing
detergent. Other types will cause
oversudsing.
Add detergent just before starting cycle.
Store detergent in a cool, dry location.
Moist or caked detergent will not dissolve
properly.
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 in the main wash.
Fill to second line
when using standard
dishwashing
detergent.
Fill both cups
for Pots & Pans
and Normal.
Fill to first line
when using ultra
or concentrated
detergent.
Fill covered cup
only for Short
Wash.
Cover
How much Detergent to use
Detergent Chart
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 permanent
etching on glassware. Your local water
company, water softener company or county
extension agent can tell you the water
hardness in your area.
Water Hardness
Amount per Cup
Soft (0-3 grains)
2 Teaspoons
Medium (4-8 grains)
5 Teaspoons
Hard (9+ grains*)
10 Teaspoons
(fill level with top)
* 12 grains and higher is extremely hard water.
Detergent alone may not be enough. A water
softener is recommended to improve water
quality and dishwashing performance.
More detergent may be needed if the
phosphorus content is 8.7% or less.
The phosphorus content is shown on the
detergent label.
10
Dishwasher
Dispenser &
Detergents (continued)
Factors Affecting
Performance
Rinse Aid
Water Pressure
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.
The hot water line to dishwasher must provide
water pressure between 20 and 120 psi.
Low water pressure may occur when laundry or
showers are in operation. Wait until water use is
reduced before starting dishwasher.
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 Temperature
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.
To check water temperature entering
dishwasher:
• 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 thermostat setting.
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.
Do not overfill since this can cause
oversudsing. Wipe up any spills with a damp
cloth.
Important: Before starting a cycle, run hot
water to clear cool water from pipe.
The dispenser holds enough for 35 to 140
washes, depending on setting.

Care and Cleaning
Overfill Protector—keeps dishwasher from
overfilling and is located in the left front corner
of the tub.
• Clean occasionally with household cleaner
containing vinegar or bleach to dissolve
any buildup.
Burn Hazard
Allow heating element to cool
before cleaning the interior.
Failure to do so can result in
burns.
•
Overfill Protector should move up and
down freely about one inch. If it does not
move, lift and clean underneath.
Outside—Occasionally wipe with a mild
nonabrasive detergent and water. Rinse and
dry.
Inside—The inside of the dishwasher is selfcleaning with normal use. If needed, clean
around the tub gasket area with a damp cloth.
The filter is self-cleaning. A glass trap located
in the center of the filter is designed to collect
pieces of broken glass, straws, bones and pits.
To remove items in glass trap, grasp handle,
lift out, empty and replace.
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. A drain air
gap is usually mounted on countertop and can
be inspected by removing the cover. This is not
part of your dishwasher and is not covered by
warranty.
Note: Hard water may cause lime deposit
buildup on the interior of the dishwasher. For
cleaning instructions see "Removing Spots
and Film" section.
12
Care and Cleaning (continued)
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.
Winterizing
A dishwasher left in an unheated place should
be protected from freezing. Have a qualified
person do the following:
To Disconnect Service:
1. Turn off electrical power to the dishwasher
at the supply source by removing fuses or
tripping circuit breaker.
2. Shut off water supply.
3. Place a pan under the inlet valve.
Disconnect water line from inlet valve and
drain into pan.
4. Disconnect drain line from pump and drain
water into pan.
To Restore Service:
1. Reconnect the water, drain, and electrical
power supply.
2. Turn on water and electrical power supply.
3. Fill both detergent dispensers and run
dishwasher through a NORMAL cycle.
4. Check connections to make sure they do
not leak.
Note: See Installation Instructions for more
details.

Detergent Dispenser.)
• Home water pressure may be too low—it
should be 20 to 120 pounds per square inch
(psi).
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 in your dishwasher.
Food Soils Left on Dishes
• Choose another cycle for longer washing
time.
• Check rack loading section for proper
loading—avoid nesting items.
• Home water pressure may be too low—
should be 20 to 120 pounds per square inch
(psi).
• Check incoming water temperature. It
should be at least 120°F (49°C). (See
Factors Affecting Performance.)
• Check water hardness. For extremely hard
water, it may be necessary to install a water
softener. (See Detergent Chart.)
• Use fresh detergent.
• Check to make sure funnel in top rack is not
blocked.
• Make sure items are not blocking the spray
arms, preventing them from rotating.
• Check to see if the rinse aid dispenser
needs refilling.
Dishware Chipped
• Load with care and do not overload. (See
Preparing and Loading dishes.)
• Place delicate items in top rack.
• Place glasses securely against pins and not
over pins.
• Load items so they are secure and don't jar
loose when moving racks in and out. Move
racks in and out slowly.
• Make sure tall glasses and stemware will
clear top of tub when rack is pushed in.
• Fine antique china and crystal should be
hand-washed.
Dishware Stained or Discolored
Dishes not Dry
• Tea and coffee can stain cups. Remove the
stains by hand washing in a solution of 1/2
cup (120 ml) bleach and one quart (1 L) of
warm water. Rinse thoroughly.
• Iron deposits in water can cause a yellow or
brown film. A special filter installed in the
water supply line will correct this problem.
(See Removing Spots and Film.)
• Aluminum utensils can leave gray/black
marks when they rub against other items.
Load properly.
• Certain high acid foods can cause
discoloration of stainless steel and plastics
if allowed to sit for a long period. Rinse by
hand if not operating dishwasher at once.
• Mixing stainless steel and silver utensils in
silverware basket can cause pitting of the
stainless steel blades. Avoid mixing
stainless steel and silver.
• Select Heat Dry option.
• Make sure the rinse aid dispenser is filled.
• Increase the amount of rinse aid. (See
Rinse Aid.)
• Check the incoming water temperature. Be
sure it is at least 120°F (49°C).
• Check for proper loading—avoid nesting
items.
• Plastic items may need to be towel dried.
• Cups with a concave bottom will collect
water.
Glassware/Flatware Spotted or
Cloudy
• Check water hardness. For extremely hard
water, it may be necessary to install a water
softener. (See Detergent Chart.)
• Water temperature may be low. Avoid
extremely low or high temperatures. (See
15
Solutions to Common Dishwashing Problems
(continued)
Etching
Vapor at Vent
• Using too much detergent in soft or
softened water causes this film that cannot
be removed.
• Adjust the amount of detergent based on
the water hardness. (Check Detergent
Chart.)
• Lower the water temperature.
• Use the No Heat Dry option.
•Water vapor escapes from the vent when the
dishwasher goes into the drying part of
cycle. This is normal.
Dishwasher Won't Run
•Check to see if circuit breaker is tripped or if a
fuse is blown.
•Make sure water supply is turned on.
•Check to see if cycle is set correctly. (See
Operating Instructions.)
•Is dishwasher set for delay start option?
•Make sure door is closed and latched.
Detergent Left in Cups
•Detergent may be old. Discard and use fresh
detergent.
•Be sure water action can reach the dispenser.
•Check to see if cycle has been completed.
•Make sure items do not prevent the
detergent dispenser from opening.
Dishwasher Does Not Drain Properly
• If unit is hooked up to a food waste disposer,
make sure the disposer is empty.
• Check to see if the knockout plug has been
removed from inside the food waste disposer
inlet.
• Check to see if drain hose is kinked.
• Make sure cycle is complete, not in a pause.
Dishwasher Leaks
•Use only fresh detergent designed for
automatic dishwashers. Measure detergent
carefully. Try a different brand.
•Spilled rinse aid can cause foam and lead to
overflowing. Wipe up any spills with a damp
cloth.
•Check to see that dishwasher is level. (See
Installation Instructions.)
Cycle Takes a Long Time
• Is cycle in a water heating delay?
• Has the delay start option been selected?
Normal Sounds You Will Hear
Dishwasher Won't Fill
•Normal sounds include water fill, water
circulation and motor sounds.
•There is a noticeable change in sound when
the wash action switches between the lower
and middle spray arm. This is normal since
each spray arm has its own sound.
•It is normal for dishwasher to pause (no
sound) when the wash action is switching
between the lower and middle spray arms.
Dishwasher Has an Odor
• Is water supply turned on?
• Does overfill protector move up and down
freely? (See Overfill Protector section.)
• Soiled dishes left in dishwasher too long can
create an odor. Rinse dishes if not running
dishwasher at once.
• There will be a "new" smell when first
installed. This is normal.
• Check to see if unit is draining properly. (See
Dishwasher Does Not Drain Properly.)
Water in Bottom of Tub
•Water left in bottom of tub after cycle is
complete is not normal. If water remains in
the bottom of the tub, dishwasher may not
be draining properly. (See Dishwasher Does
Not Drain Properly.)
Stains on Tub Interior
• Washing large amounts of dishware with
tomato based soil can cause a pink/orange
appearance. This will not affect performance
and will gradually fade over time. Pre-rinsing
will reduce the chance of staining. Using No
Heat Dry option will lessen staining.
