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 themessages
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.
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.
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 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.
•
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.
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.
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.
Tip Over Hazard
WARNING:
Do not use dishwasher 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.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
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.

The ULTRA WASH soil removal system gives you sparkling clean
dishes, while using less energy and time. The ULTRA WASH soil
removal system includes:
A heavy-duty grinder that acts as a food disposer to grind and
dispose of large food particles.
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.
Hot water fills the dishwasher to a level near the bottom of
the overfill protection float.
3.
The Heating indicator glows and the dishwasher
the water is heated.
4.
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

rack may vary from the
Do not cover upper level wash. See arrow.
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.
•
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.
10 place setting
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
•
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 items are secured in the racks.
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.
8
12place setting
•
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 tines. Placing
them over the tines can lead to breakage and water spots,
•
China, crystal, and other delicate items must not touch each
other during dishwasher operation. Damage may occur.
•
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.
Adjustable 3-position top rack
You can raise or lower the top rack to fit tall items in either the top
or bottom rack. Two adjusters are located on each side of the top
rack. Each adjuster has 3 preset positions. The high and low
positions are marked on the adjuster.
To adjust the top rack
1.
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 tines. Do not nest bowls
because the spray will not reach all surfaces.
Hold the top rack with one hand near the adjuster.
12 place setting
2.
With the other hand, pull out the top of the adjuster.
3.
Raise or lower the rack to one of the preset positions.
4.
Release the adjuster.
Repeat the steps for the remaining adjusters as needed. The 4
adjusters can be raised or lowered separately or together. The
top rack does not have to be level.
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.)
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.
•
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.
NOTE: The features on your dishwasher rack may vary from the
drawings shown.
Do not cover spray tower. See arrow.
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,
•
Place small items like baby bottle caps, jar lids, corn cob
holders, etc., in the covered section. Close the cover to hold
small items in place.
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 tines and facing
inward to the spray.
This silverware basket can be separated and placed into the
bottom rack in several locations. Load silverware in all
sections or just one, depending upon your load.
•
When covers are up, mix items in each section of the basket
with some pointing up and some down to avoid nesting.
Spray cannot reach nested items.

To remove a small basket
1. Hold the center basket and one small basket. Slide the small
basket forward to release the tabs from the corresponding
slots.
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.
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%.

NOTES:
•
Do not load silver or silver-plated silverware with stainless
steel. These metals can be damaged by contact with each

•
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.

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 dishwasl_er 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 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 cycres 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•
•
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.
•
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.
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, bat 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.

DISHWASHER CARE
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.
Check the drain air gap anytime your dishwasher isn't
draining well.
Some state or local plumbing codes require the addition of a
drain air gap between a built-in dishwasher and the home drain
system. If a drain is clogged, the drain air gap protects your
dishwasher from water backing up into it.
1
\
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
damp sponge.

detergent and clean with a
See the vinegar rinse procedure in "Spotting and filming on
dishes" in "Troubleshooting."
NOTE: Run a Normal cycle with detergent after cleaning the
interior.
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.
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.

Dishes are damaged
•
1.
Wash and rinse dishes. Use an air-dry or an energy saving
dry option. Remove all silverware or metal items.
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.
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
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 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.
