WARNING
- When using the dishwasher,
follow basic precautions, including the following:
Read all instructions before using the dishwasher
o Use the dishwasher only for its intended function
o 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/keiy
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
o Do not operate the dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are properly in place.

o 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

Quick Reference
Tip Over Hazard
Do not use dishwasher until completely
installed.
Do not push down on open door.
Doing so can result in serious injury or cuts.
Electrical Shock Hazard
Electrically ground dishwasher.
Connect ground wire to green ground
connector in terminal box.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to do so can result in death, fire, or
electrical shock.
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 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_
o 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 equipmentgrounding terminal or lead on the dishwasher

use too much in soft water, glassware wilt etch,
o Different brands of dishwasher detergent have
different amounts of phosphorus for softening
water. ]f you have hard water and use a detergent
with a phosphorous content of less than 8.7%,

Keep the rinse agent dispenser filled with a liquid
rinse agent. A rinse agent greatly improves dish
drying by helping water flow off them during the last
rinse, A rinse agent also keeps water from forming
droplets and drying as spots or streaks°
To check dispenser:
o Check center of fill indicator cap. Clear means it
needs filling,
A small amount of rinse agent automatically releases
into the rinse water during the final rinse of each cycle.
For best drying results, check dispenser periodically
to see if it needs filling.
o Or remove fill indicator cap. An "E" is visible at the
bottom of the dispenser
when empty,
To fill dispenser;
The rinse agent dispenser holds 6 ounces
(! 75 mL), Under normal conditions, this lasts
about 3 months.
1. Open dishwasher door completely
2. Remove fill indicator cap1
3. Add rinse agent° Fill to smallest opening in lower
part of dispenser only 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 fill indicator cap° Keep it closed tightly,
NOTE; You do not have to wait until the dispenser
is empty before refilling, but do not overfill it. Your
dishwasher is designed to use a liquid rinse agent.
You do not need to use a solid or bar-type
rinse agent
Hot water dissolves and activates the dishwashing
detergent. Hot water also dissolves grease on
dishes and helps dry glasses spot-free, Use the
Water Heat option, if available, if you keep your
water heater at a low setting. For best dishwashing
results, water must be at least 120°F (49°0) as it
enters the dishwasher.
NOTE: The time showing on the electronic display
will pause while water is heating, For more information, see "Dishwasher seems to run too long"
on page 26.

To check water temperature:
1o Run hot water at the faucet closest to your dishwasher° Let the water run for at least 1 minute.
2. Measure the water temperature with a candy or
meat thermometer,, Put the thermometer 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.

Cleaning
In most cases, regular use of a soft, damp cloth or
sponge and a mild
detergent is al! that is
necessary to keep the
outside of your dishwasher nice looking
and clean,
the interior
Hard water minerals may cause a white film to build
up on the inside surfaces,
especially just beneath
the door area. To clean
interior:
_Apply powdered dishwasher detergent to a
damp sponge to make
a paste,
OR
oUse liquid automatic
dishwasher detergent
and clean with damp sponge
Do not clean the dishwasher interior until it has
cooled.
Wear rubber gloves. Do not use any type of cleanser
other than dishwasher detergent because it may
cause foaming or sudsing.
NOTE: Some tomato-based foods might permanently
stain the inner tub and door liner. It is recommended
that you prerinse concentrated amounts of soil from
the dishes before loading.

NOTE: If your dishwasher is connected to a
garbage disposal, do not run water into the sink
after winterizing, This could cause water to refill the
drain hose on your dishwasher.
You can help save energy if you;
° Wash full loads, Running a half-filled dishwasher
uses the same amount of electricity and hot water
as a fully loaded machine,
° Use the Water Miser cycle if dishes are prerinsed.
The cycle uses Jess hot water and energy than the
Normal Wash cycle.
o Use the No Heat Dry option when you don't need
a rapid drying cycle. Allow longer drying times
(overnight) Use a rinse agent to improve drying.,
NOTE: Loads may not wash as welt if the water
temperature is too low.
Load correctly for best washing results. Incorrect
loading may cause poor washing and the need to
rewash all or part of the loado
Use the delay feature to run your dishwasher
during off-peak hours. Local utilities recommend
this to avoid heavy usage of energy at certain
times of day.
° Use the Water Heat option only when needed. When
this option is off, the dishwasher will not pause to
heat water to 135°F (57°C) during the main wash.,
