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.

Your Precision Wash Systerr_
dishwasher
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 nothear the drain motor.
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

Preparing and
Loading Dishes
Dish Preparation
Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits,
toothpicks, etc. The continuous filtered wash
system will remove remaining food particles.
Burned-on foods should be loosened before
loading. Empty liquids from glasses and cups.
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 racks so that large items do not
prevent the detergent dispenser from
opening.
Check manufacturer's
recommendations
before washing items in question.
If the dishwasher drains into a food
disposer, be sure disposer
is completely
empty before starting

Dishwasher Dispenser & Detergents
Filling the Detergent Dispenser
How much Detergent to use
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
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.

*Note: For very hard water, detergent alone may not be enough. A water softener is recommended
to
improve water quality and dishwashing performance. 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
Dishwasher
Dispenser &
Detergents (continued)
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
drying results. Water entering dishwasher
should be at least 120°F (49°C) to give
satisfactory results.
To check water temperature
dishwasher:
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.
The dispenser holds enough for 35 to 140
washes, depending on setting.

Care and Cleaning
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.

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.
Inside--The
inside of the dishwasher is selfcleaning with normal use. If needed, clean
around the tub gasket area with a damp cloth.
Winterizing
The filter is selfcleaning. 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.
A dishwasher left in an unheated place should
be protected from freezing. Have a qualified
person do the following:
To Disconnect
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.
Note: Hard water may cause lime deposit
buildup on the interior of the dishwasher. For
cleaning instructions see "Removing Spots
and Film" section.
