DISHWASHER SAFETY
Your
safety and the safety
of others
are very
important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance, Always read and obey all
safety messages.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others,
All
will
follow the safety alert symbol and either the word "DANGER" or
Thissafety
is themessages
safety alert
symbol.
"WARNING," These words mean:
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't
immediately follow instructions,
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't
follow instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you
what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING:
When using the dishwasher, follow basic precautions, including the following:
•
•
Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.
Use the dishwasher only for its intended function.
•
Do not operate the dishwasher unless all enclosure
panels are properly in place.
•
Use only detergents or rinse agents recommended
for use in a dishwasher, and keep them out of the
reach of children.
•
•
Do not tamper with controls.
Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish
racks of the dishwasher.
•
When loading items to be washed:
1) Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to
damage the door seat; and
2) Load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce
the risk of cut-type injuries.
•
To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to
play in or on the 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
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 when
removing an old dishwasher from service or
discarding it.
•
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.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

Before Using Your Dishwasher
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
• 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.
Tip Over Hazard
Do not use dishwasher
WARNING:
until completely installed.
Do not push down on open door.
Doing so can result in serious injury or cuts.
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.
For a permanently connected dishwasher:
The dishwasher must be connected to a
grounded metal, permanent wiring system, or an
equipment-grounding conductor must be run
with the circuit conductors and connected to the
equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the
dishwasher.
SAVETHESEINSTRUCTIONS
Electrical Shock Hazard
Electrically ground dishwasher.
Connect ground wire to green ground connector
in terminal box.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death, fire, or electrical shock.
Install where dishwasher is protected from the elements.
Protect against freezing to avoid possible rupture of fill valve.
Such ruptures are not covered by the warranty. See "Storing
Your Dishwasher" in the "Dishwasher Care" section for winter
storage information.
Install and level dishwasher on a floor that will hold the
weight, and in an area suitable for its size and use.
Remove all shipping plugs from hoses and connectors
as the cap on the drain outlet) before installing. See
Installation Instructions for complete information.

How the ULTRA WASH Sensor and the Automatic
Temperature Control (ATC) work
1. The SENSING indicator glows when the ULTRA WASH
Sensor is measuring the amount of soil in the dishwasher.
ULTRA WASH ®Soil
Removal System
The ULTRA WASH soil removal system gives you sparkling clean
dishes, while using less energy and time. The ULTRA WASH soil
removal system includes:
2.
Afterthesoillevelisdetermined,
unnecessaryportionsofthe
cycle are skipped. When this happens, the electronic display
pauses or skips numbers as it counts down. This is normal.
•
A heavy-duty grinder that acts as a food disposer to grind
and dispose of large food particles.
3.
•
An ULTRA WASH sensor to monitor soil level and adjust the
cycles as needed.
The ATC adjusts the water temperature throughout the cycle
depending upon the soil level detected. Higher water
temperatures are used to improve cleaning with heavier
soiled loads.
•
An Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) that ensures the
proper water temperature for the selected wash cycle, and
soil level of the load.
START-UP GUIDE
How the ULTRA WASH soil removal system works
1. Load the dishwasher. Remove bones, large chunks or
burned-on food. No rinsing is necessary. Any remaining food
soil will be ground up and disposed down the drain with the
rinse water.
2.
3.
Hot water fills the dishwasher to a level near the bottom of
the overfill protection float.
The HEATING indicator glows, and the countdown
while the water is heated.
When the water reaches the proper temperature, the
HEATING indicator turns off and the cycle countdown
resumes.
5.
Detergent from the detergent dispenser is dispensed at the
correct cycle times and hot water is pumped through the
ULTRA WASH pump.
6.
Hot water and detergent sprays against the soiled surfaces of
the load and removes food particles.
7.
Food soil is held in an accumulating chamber.
9.

drawings shown.
rack may vary from the
Remove leftover food, bones, toothpicks and other hard
items from the dishes. It is not necessary to rinse the dishes
before putting them in the dishwasher. The wash module
removes food particles from the water. The module contains a
chopping device which will reduce the size of food items.
NOTE: If hard items such as fruit seeds, nuts, and egg shells
enter the wash module, you might hear chopping, grinding,
crunching, or buzzing sounds. These sounds are normal
when hard items enter the module. Do not let metallic items
(such as pot handle screws) get into the wash module.
Damage can occur.
It is important for the water spray to reach all soiled surfaces.
10 place setting
Load dishes so they are not stacked or overlapping if
possible. For best drying, water must be abre to drain from all
surfaces.
Make sure pot lids and handles, pizza pans, cookie sheets,
etc., do not interfere with the spray arm rotation.
Run a rinse cycle to keep dishes moist if you do not plan to
wash them soon. Foods like eggs, rice, pasta, spinach, and
cooked cereals may be hard to remove if they are left to dry
over a period of time.
Quiet operating tips
To avoid thumping/clattering noises during operation:
•
Make sure lightweight load items are secured in the racks.
•
Make sure pot lids and handles, pizza pans, cookie sheets,
etc., do not touch interior walls or interfere with the rotation of
the spray arm.
•
Load dishes so they do not touch one another.
NOTE: For built-in models, keep sink drain plugs closed during
dishwasher operation to prevent noise transfer through drains.

Different brands of dishwasher detergent have different
amounts of phosphorous for softening water. If you have hard
water and use a detergent with a phosphorous content of
less than 8.7%, you might need to use more detergent, or use
a detergent with a phosphorous content higher than 8.7%.

Rinse Aid Dispenser
Dishwasher Efficic .ncy 'rips
Rinse aids prevent water from forming droplets that can dry as
spots or streaks. They also improve drying by allowing water to
drain off of the dishes during the final rinse by releasing a small
amount of the rinse aid into the rinse water. Your dishwasher is
designed to use a liquid rinse aid. Do not use a solid or bar-type.
Hot water dissolves and activates the dishwashing detergent.
Hot water also dissolves grease on dishes and helps glasses dry
spot-free. For best dishwashing results, water must be at least
120°F (49°C) as it enters the dishwasher. Loads may not wash as
well if the water temperature is too low.
Checking the dispenser
Check the center of the Fill Indicator cap, Clear means it needs
filling.
To check water temperature
1. Run hot water at the faucet closest to your dishwasher for at
least 1 minute.
2. Place a candy or meat thermometer in a glass measuring
cup.
OR
Or you can remove the Fill Indicator cap. tf an "E" is visible, the
dispenser is empty.
Filling the dispenser
The rinse aid dispenser holds 6 oz (175 mL) of rinse aid. Under
normal conditions, this will last for about three months. You do
not have to wait until the dispenser is empty to refill it. Try to keep
it full, but be careful not to overfill it.
1.
Make sure the dishwasher
door is completely
open.
2.
Remove the Fill Indicator cap.
3.
Add rinse aid. Fill to the smallest opening in the lower part of
the dispenser. Overfilling can cause the rinse aid to leak out,
and could cause oversudsing.
3,
Check the temperature on the thermometer
running into the cup.
as the water is
4.
If the water temperature at the faucet is below 120°F (49°C),
have a qualified person raise the water heater's thermostat
setting.
To save water, energy and time, do not rinse dishes before
putting them into the dishwasher.
Use a low energy, quick, or short cycle whenever possible.
These cycles use less hot water and energy than the Normal
cycle.
Use a delay feature (on some models) to run your dishwasher
during off-peak hours. Local utilities recommend avoiding
heavy usage of energy at certain times of day.
During the summer, run your dishwasher at night. This
reduces daytime heat buildup in the kitchen.
4.
Clean up any spilled rinse aid with a damp cloth.
5.
Replace the Fill Indicator cap. Close tightly.
Use the eneEjy-saving dry option whenever possible. Allow
longer drying times (overnight) when using these options. Use
a rinse aid to improve drying.
Use cycles or options that add extra heat to the wash or rinse
portion of the cycle only when needed.
Run your dishwasher with full loads. Run a rinse cycle after
meals until the dishwasher is full.

The drain air gap is usually located on top of the sink or
countertop near the dishwasher. To order a drain air gap call
1-800-366-7278 and ask for Part Number 300096.
NOTE: The drain air gap is an external plumbing device that is
not part of your dishwasher. The warranty provided with your
dishwasher does not cover service costs directly associated with
the cleaning or repair of the external drain air gap.
To clean the drain air gap
Clean the drain air gap periodically to ensure proper drainage of
your dishwasher. Follow the cleaning instructions provided by the
manufacturer. With most types, you lift off the chrome cover.
Unscrew the plastic cap. Then check for any soil buildup. Clean
if necessary.

least 120°F (49°C). Refer to the "Dishwasher Efficiency
Tips" section.
First try the solutions suggested here and possibly avoid
the cost of a service call...
Did you use the correct amount of fresh detergent? Use
recommended dishwasher detergents only, Refer to the
"Detergent Dispenser" section. Never use less than 1 tb
(15 g) per load. Detergent must be fresh to be effective. Store
detergent in a cool, dry area. Heavy soil and/or hard water

cans? If you wash bottles and cans in your dishwasher, check
for labels clogging the pump or spray arm.
Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
Is the home water pressure high enough for proper
dishwasher filling? Home water pressure should be
20 to 120 psi (138 to 828 kPa) for proper dishwasher fill. A
booster pump on the water supply can be added if pressure
is too low.
Is the water shut-off valve (if installed) turned on?

Spotting and filming on dishes
Is your water hard or is there a high mineral content in your
water? Conditioning the final rinse water with a liquid rinse
aid helps eliminate spotting and filming. Keep the rinse aid
dispenser filled.
Is the water temperature too low? If needed, turn home
water heater up to ensure water entering dishwasher is at
least 120°F (49°C). Refer to the "Dishwasher Efficiency
Tips" section.
Did you use the correct amount of effective detergent? Use
recommended dishwasher detergents only. Refer to the
"Detergent Dispenser" section. Never use less than 1 tb (15 g)
per load. Detergent must be fresh to be effective. Store
detergent in a cool, dry area. Heavy soil and/or hard water
generally require extra detergent.
is the home water pressure high enough for proper
dishwasher filling? Home water pressure should be 20 to 120
psi (138 to 828 kPa) for proper dishwasher fill. A booster
pump on the water supply can be added if pressure is too
low.
NOTE: To remove spots and film from dishes, try a white
vinegar rinse. This procedure is intended for occasional use
only. Vinegar is an acid and using it too often could damage
your dishwasher.
1.
2.
Wash and rinse dishes. Use an air-dry or an energy saving
dry option. Remove all silverware or metal items.
Put 2 cups (473 mL) white vinegar in a glass or
dishwasher-safe measuring cup on the bottom rack.
3.
•
Run the dishwasher through a complete washing cycle
using an air-dry or an energy saving dry option. Do not
use detergent. Vinegar will mix with the wash water.
Silica film or etching (silica film is a milky, rainbowcolored deposit; etching is a cloudy film)
Sometimes there is a water/chemical reaction with certain
types of glassware. This is usually caused by some
combination of soft or softened water, alkaline washing
solutions, insufficient rinsing, ovedoading the dishwasher,
and the heat of drying. It might not be possible to prevent the
problem, except by hand washing.
Dishes are damaged during a cycle
•
Chipping of dishes
Did you load the dishwasher properly? Load the dishes and
glasses so they are stable and do not strike together from
washing action. Minimize chipping by moving the rack in and
out slowly.
NOTE: Antiques, feather-edged crystal, and similar types of
china and glassware might be too delicate for automatic
dishwashing. Wash by hand.
Noises
Grinding, grating, crunching or buzzing sounds
A hard object has entered the wash module (on some
models). The sound should stop when the object is
ground up.
To slow this process use a minimum amount of detergent but
not less than 1 tb (15 g) per load. Use a liquid rinse aid and
undedoad the dishwasher to allow thorough rinsing. Silica
film and etching are permanent and cannot be removed. Do
not use heated drying.
•
White spots on cookware
with non-stick finish
Has the dishwasher detergent removed cookware
seasoning? Reseason cookware after washing in the
dishwasher.
•
Brown stains on dishes and dishwasher interior
Does your water have high iron content? Rewash dishes
using 1-3 tsp (5-15 mL) of citric acid crystals added to the
covered section of the detergent dispenser. Do not use
detergent. Follow with a Normal wash cycle with detergent. If
treatment is needed more often than every other month, the
installation of an iron removal unit is recommended.
=
Black or gray marks on dishes
Are aluminum items rubbing dishes during washing?
Disposable aluminum items can break down in the
dishwasher and cause marking. Hand wash these items.
Remove aluminum markings by using a mild abrasive cleaner.
•
Orange stains on plastic dishes or dishwasher interior
Are large amounts of tomato-based foods on dishes placed
in the dishwasher? Stains gradually fade over time. Regular
use of heated drying will slow fading. Stains will not affect
dishwasher performance. Regular use of a rinse cycle and an
air-dry or energy-saving dry option will reduce the likelihood
of staining.
Dishes do not dry completely
Dishes are not dry
Did you load your dishwasher to allow proper water
drainage? Do not overload. Refer to the "Dishwasher
Loading" section, Use a liquid rinse aid to speed drying.
Are the plastics wet? Plastics often need towel drying.
Is the rinse aid dispenser empty? Refer to the "Rinse Aid
Dispenser" section.
Did you use an air-dry or energy-saving dry option? Use a
heated drying option for dryer dishes,
