DISHWASHER SAFETY
Your
safety and the safety of others
is 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 hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All
be preceded by the safety alert symbol and the word "DANGER" or
Thissafety
is themessages
safety alertwillsymbol.
"WARNING." These words mean:
You will be killed or seriously injured if you don't
follow instructions,
You can be killed or seriously injured
follow instructions.
if you don't
All safety messages will identify the hazard, 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.
,, 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 seal; 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.
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
removing an old dishwasher from service or
discarding it.

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 until completely installed.
Do not push down on open door.
Doing so can result in serious injury or cuts.
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.
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
"Caring for Your Dishwasher" 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
(such as the cap on the drain outlet) before installing.
See Installation Instructions for complete information.

8. Food soil is disposed down the drain with the wash
water.
WASH*
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.
•
An ULTRA WASH sensor to monitor soil level and
adjust the cycles as needed.
•
An Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) that ensures
the proper water temperature for the selected wash
cycle, and soil level of the load.
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 Water Heating indicator glows, and the countdown
pauses while the water is heated.
9. Fresh, hot water enters the dishwasher and sprays on
the dishes. The rinse water is then pumped through the
ULTRA WASH soil removal system and remaining soil is
removed.
10.The food soil that is held in the ULTRA WASH soil
removal system is disposed down the drain with the
rinse water.
11 .The final rinse water is heated. The rinse aid is added to
the water for the final rinse to prepare the dishes for
drying.
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.
2.
After the soil level is determined, unnecessary portions
of the cycle are skipped, When this happens, the
electronic display pauses or skips numbers as it counts
down. This is normal.
3,
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.
4. When the water reaches the proper temperature, the
Water 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.

START-UP GUIDE
LOADING YOUR
DISHWASHER
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.
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.
1. Scrape large food soil and hard items (toothpicks or
bones) from dishes.
2. Properly load the dishwasher. (See "Loading Your
Dishwasher.") Make sure nothing prevents the spray
arm(s) from spinning freely.
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.
3. Add detergent and check the rinse aid dispenser. Add
rinse aid if needed. (See "Using Your Dishwasher.")
Load heavy pots and pans carefully. Heavy items can
dent the stainless steel interior of the door if they are
dropped or bumped.
Make sure pot lids and handles, pizza pans, cookie
sheets, etc., do not interfere with the spray arm
rotation.
4. Push door firmly closed. The door latches
automatically. Run hot water at the sink nearest your
dishwasher until the water is hot. (See "Dishwasher
Efficiency Tips.") Turn off water.
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.

4. Cover
The larger Main Wash section automatically empties
detergent into the dishwasher during the wash. (See the
"Cycle Selection Chart.")
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.
NOTE: Do not use detergent with a rinse cycle.
It is normal for the cover to open partially when dispensing
detergent.
NOTE= Use both sections for cycles with 2 washes. Use
only the covered section for cycles with 1 wash. See the
"Cycle Selection Chart" for more details.
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%.

Very Hard Water
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.
Filling the dispenser
The rinse aid dispenser holds 5.2 oz (153.7 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 fully open.
2. Turn the dispenser knob to OPEN and lift it out.

4. Clean up any spilled rinse aid with a damp cloth.
5. Replace the dispenser knob and turn it to CLOSED.
Rinse aid setting
The amount of rinse aid released into the final wash can be
adjusted. The factory setting is at 2. For most water
conditions set the adjuster to 1 or 2. If there are rings or
calcium (hard water) spots on dishes, try a higher setting.
For heavily soiled loads:
•
Fill the Main Wash section
(3 tbs or 45 g)
•
Fill the Pre-Wash section
(2 tbs or 30 g)
•
Turn the rinse aid dispenser to
a higher setting. See "Rinse

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.
To adjust the setting
Remove the dispenser knob, then turn the adjuster inside
the dispenser to the desired setting.

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.

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 oft-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.
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.

Check the drain air gap anytime your dishwasher
isn't draining well
4. Place a shallow pan under the water supply valve.
Then, use a wrench to disconnect the water inlet from
the water supply valve. Separate the water inlet from
the water supply valve and drain water into the pan.
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.
3
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.
Moving or 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 a qualified person do the following:
1. Disconnect
power supply to the dishwasher.

cycle once or twice a day until you have a ful) 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.
•
22
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.
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.
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.
1. Wash and rinse dishes. Use an air-dry or an energy
saving dry option. Remove all silverware or metal
items.
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.
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 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 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.
