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
follow the safety alert symbol and either the word "DANGER" or
Thissafety
is the messages
safety alertwillsymbol.
"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.
IM PORTANT 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.
• Use only detergents or rinse agents recommended
for use in a dishwasher, and keep them out of the
reach of children.
•
Do not operate the dishwasher unless all enclosure
panels are properly in place.
•
•
Do not tamper with controls.
Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish
racks of the dishwasher.
•
• To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to
play in or on the dishwasher.
When loading items to be washed:
1) Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to
damage the door seal; and
2) Load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce
the risk of cut-type injuries.
•
De 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.
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.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

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.
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.
• 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.

START-UP GUIDE
The Soil Settler soil removal system cleans by spraying a
mixture of hot, clean water and detergent against soiled
dishes.
When a cycle is started, the dishwasher fills with water to a
level near the bottom of the overfill protector. This water is
pumped through the rotating spray tower and spray arm,
circulated through the filter system which collects food
and soil, and pumped back through the rotating spray
tower and spray arm.
Soiled water is then pumped out and replaced with clean
water during a cycle, the number of times depends on the
cycle being used.
To clean the Soil Settler filter screen
1. Wait at least 20 minutes after a cycle for the heating
element to cool down.
2. Unload and slide the bottom rack forward. (Remove
bottom rack if necessary to reach filter screen.)
3. Remove collected particles from the screen with your
finger or a paper towel.
Before using your dishwasher, remove all hang tags,
temporary labels, and packaging materials. Read this
entire Use and Care Guide. You will find important safety
information and useful operating tips.
Electrical Shock Hazard

required.
1. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
2. Scrape large food soil and hard items (toothpicks or
bones) from dishes.
3. Properly load the dishwasher. (See "Loading Your
Dishwasher.") Make sure nothing prevents the spray

LOADING YOUR
DISHWASHER
The top rack is designed for cups, glasses, and smaller
items. (See recommended loading patterns shown•)
NOTE: The features on your dishwasher rack may vary
from the drawings shown•
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•
n-vF_
Cup and glass load
Load dishes so soiled surfaces face the spray (down or
inward)• It is important for the water spray to reach all
soiled surfaces•
•
Load dishes so they are not stacked or overlapping if
possible. For best drying, water must be able 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.
Mixed load
Place items so open ends face down for cleaning and
draining•
Load glasses in top rack only. The bottom rack is not
designed for glasses. Damage can occur.
Place cups and glasses in the rows between prongs•
Placing them over the prongs can lead to breakage•
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.
China, crystal, and other delicate items must not touch
each other during dishwasher operation• Damage may
occur•
Load dishes so they do not touch one another•
Load plastic items in the top rack only. Only plastic
items marked "dishwasher safe" are recommended•
Load plastic items so the force of the spray does not
move them during the cycle•
To avoid chipping, do not let stemware touch other
items.
Small bowls, pans, and other utensils can be placed in
the top rack. Load bowls in the center section for best
stability.
10
The bottom rack is designed for plates, pans, casseroles,
and utensils. Items with cooked-on or dried-on food
should be loaded with soiled surfaces facing inward to the
spray. (See recommended loading patterns shown.)
NOTE: The features on your dishwasher rack may vary
from the drawings shown.
Do not cover spray tower. See arrow.
•
Secure heavily soiled cookware face down in the rack.
•
Make sure pot handles and other items do not stop
rotation of the spray arm(s). The spray arm(s) must
move freely.
•
Do not load items between the bottom rack and the
side of the dishwasher tub. You can block the water
inlet opening.
NOTE: If you have removed the bottom rack for unloading
or cleaning, replace it with the bumpers in front.
Load the silverware basket while it is in the bottom rack or
take the basket out for loading on a counter or table.
NOTE: Unload or remove the basket before unloading the
racks to avoid spilling water droplets on the silverware.
Mixed load
Do not load glasses, cups, or plastic items in the
bottom rack. Load small items in the bottom rack only
if they are secured in place.
Load plates, soup bowls, etc., between prongs and
facing inward to the spray.
Overlap the edges of plates for large loads.
Mix items in each section of the basket with some pointing
up and some down to avoid nesting. Spray cannot reach
nested items.
Load soup, cereal, and serving bowls in the rack in a
variety of ways depending upon their size and shape.
Load bowls securely between the rows of prongs. Do
not nest bowls because the spray will not reach all
surfaces.
IMPORTANT: Always load sharp items (knives, skewers,
forks, etc.) pointing down.
NOTES:
Utensil load
•
Do not load silver or silver-plated silverware with
stainless steel. These metals can be damaged by
contact with each other during washing.
•
Some foods (such as salt, vinegar, milk products, fruit
juices, etc.) can pit or corrode silverware. Run a rinse
cycle if you do not have a full load to wash immediately.
Load cookie sheets, cake pans, and other large items
at the sides and back. Loading such items in front can
keep the water spray from reaching the detergent
dispenser and silverware basket.
11
USING YOUR
DISHWASHER
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%.
Where to fill
The detergent dispenser has 2 sections. The Pre-Wash
section empties detergent into the dishwasher when you
close the door.

•
Use automatic dishwashing detergent only. Other
detergents can produce excessive suds that can
overflow out of the dishwasher and reduce washing
performance.
•
Add detergent just before starting cycle.
•
Store tightly closed detergent in a cool, dry place.
Fresh automatic dishwasher detergent results in better
cleaning.

How much detergent to use
The amount of detergent to use depends on the
hardness of your water and the type of detergent. If you
use too little, dishes won't be clean. If you use too
much in soft water, glassware will etch.
Water hardness can change over a period of time. Find
out your water's hardness by asking your local water
department, water softener company, or county
extension agent.
12
NOTE: Fill amounts shown are for standard powdered
detergent. Amounts may vary if you use liquid or
concentrated powdered detergent. Follow instructions on
the package when using liquid dishwasher detergent or
concentrated powdered detergent.
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
To check water temperature
Check the center of the Fill Indicator cap. Clear means it
needs filling.
1. Run hot water at the faucet closest to your dishwasher
for at least 1 minute.
2. Place a candy or meat thermometer
measuring cup.
in a glass
<1( : I_
u===:
Or you can remove the Fill Indicator cap. If 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 as the
water is running into the cup.
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 and energy, 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 to
reduce daytime heat buildup.
4. Clean up any spilled rinse aid with a damp cloth.
5. Replace the Fill Indicator cap. Close tightly.
Use an air dry, or an energy-saving dry option
whenever possible. Allow longer drying times
(overnight) when using these options. Use a rinse aid to
improve drying.
Run your dishwasher with full loads. Run a rinse cycle
after meals until the dishwasher is full.

1. Lift up the door latch to stop the cycle. Wait for the
spraying action to stop before opening the door.
2. Open the door and add the item.
3. Close the door, but do not latch it. Wait 30 seconds for
the air in the dishwasher to warm up. This reduces the
amount of moisture escaping from the vent when
restarting a cycle.
4. Close the door firmly until it latches. The dishwasher
resumes the cycle.
IMPORTANT: The vapor is hot. Do not touch the vent
during drying.
The overfill protection float (in the front right corner of the
dishwasher tub) keeps the dishwasher from overfilling. It
must be in place for the dishwasher to operate.
You can customize your cycles by pressing an option. If
you change your mind, press the option again to turn the
option off. Select a different option if desired.
You can change an option anytime before the selected
option begins. For example, you can press an unheated
drying option any time before drying begins.
Check under the float for objects that may keep the
protector from moving up or down.
Heat Dry
Select this option to ensure thorough drying of your
dishes.
No Heat Dry
Select this energy-saving option to dry without heat, No
Heat drying is useful when loads contain plastic
dinnerware that may be sensitive to high temperatures.

CARING FOR YOUR
DISHWASHER
TROUBLESHOOTING
First try the solutions suggested here and
possibly avoid the cost of a service call...
Dishwasher is not operating properly
Cleaning the exterior
In most cases, regular use of a soft, damp cloth or sponge
and a mild detergent is all that is necessary to keep the
outside of your dishwasher looking nice and clean.
Dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle
Is the door closed tightly and latched?
Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the "Cycle Selection
Chart."
Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown or circuit breaker tripped?
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 water shut-off valve (if installed) turned on?
Cleaning the interior
Hard water minerals can cause a white film to build up on
the inside surfaces, especially just beneath the door area.
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.
To clean interior
Make a paste with powdered dishwasher detergent on a
damp sponge and clean.
OR
Use liquid automatic dishwasher detergent and clean with
a damp sponge.
OR
See the vinegar rinse procedure in "Spotting and filming on
dishes" in "Troubleshooting."
NOTE: Run a Normal cycle with detergent after cleaning
the interior.
....
,
Storing for the summer
Protect your dishwasher during the summer months by
turning off the water supply and power supply to the
dishwasher.
Winterizing
your dishwasher
Protect your dishwasher and home against water damage
due to freezing water lines. If your dishwasher is left in a
seasonal dwelling or could be exposed to near freezing
temperatures, have your dishwasher winterized by
authorized service personnel.
Dishwasher will not fill
Is the overfill protection float able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.
Dishwasher seems to run too long
Is the water supplied to the dishwasher hot enough? The
dishwasher runs longer while heating water. Refer to the
"Water Temperature Tips" section.
A delay automatically occurs in some wash and rinse
cycles until the water reaches the proper temperature.
Water remains in the dishwasher
Is the cycle complete?
Detergent remains in the covered section of the
dispenser
Is the cycle complete?
Is the detergent lump-free? Replace detergent if
necessary.
Is the bottom rack installed properly with the bumpers in
the front? Refer to the "Parts and Features" section.
Reinstall the rack if necessary.
White residue on the front of the access panel
Was too much detergent used? Refer to the "Detergent
Dispenser" section.
Is the brand of detergent making excess foam? Try a
different brand to reduce foaming and eliminate buildup.
Odor in the dishwasher
Are dishes washed only every 2 or 3 days? Run a rinse
cycle once or twice a day until you have a full load.
Does the dishwasher have a new plastic smell? Run a
vinegar rinse as described in "Spotting and filming on
dishes" later in this Troubleshooting guide.
Condensation on the kitchen counter (built-in
models)
Is the dishwasher aligned with the counter top? Moisture
from the vent in the dishwasher console can form on the
counter. Refer to the Installation Instructions for more
information.

1. Wash and rinse dishes• Use an air-dry or an energy
saving dry option. Remove all silverware or metal
items•
Dishes are not completely clean
•
Food soil left on the dishes
Is the dishwasher loaded correctly? Refer to the
"Loading Your Dishwasher" section•
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 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 generally require extra detergent.
Is detergent caked in dispenser? Use fresh detergent
only. Do not allow detergent to sit for several hours in a
wet dispenser. Clean dispenser when caked detergent is
present.
Is the pump or spray arm clogged by labels from bottles
and cans? Remove labels before washing bottles and
cans or wash by hand.
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.
Are high suds slowing the wash arm? Never use soap or
laundry detergents. Use recommended dishwasher
detergents only.

Spots and stains on dishes
• 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.
18
2. 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, overloading the
dishwasher, and the heat of drying• It might not be
possible to prevent the problem, except by hand
washing.
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 underload 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 slew 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 "Loading Your
Dishwasher" 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.
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
