POWR
CLEAN* Washing System
Your dishwasher
cleans by spraying
a mixture of hot, clean water and detergent
against soiled surfaces of dishes. When a cycle is started,the
dishwasher
fills with water
to about the level of the heating
element, This water is pumped
through the rotating
spray arm&through
the POWER CLEAN Module which removes food particle&and
back
through the rotating spray arms. Soiled water is pumped
out and replaced
with clean
water during a cycle - the number of times depends
on the cycle being used.
The POWER CLEAN* Module
removes
particles
from the water, stores them,
washes them down the drain.

POWER CLEAN* Module will remove food particles from the water. It contains a chopping
device which will reduce the size of food items.
If hard items such as fruit seeds, nuts and egg
shells enter the POWER CLEAN’ Module, you
might hear chopping,
grinding,
crunching
or
buzzing sounds, Those sounds are normal when
hard items enter the module.

Adding detergent
The kind and amount of dishwasher
detergent
you use is an important
getting your dishes clean. Read this section carefully.
Use automatic
dlshwasher detergent
only.
Other detergents
are
too mild and much too
sudsy
to work
in the
dishwasher.
Different
brands
of
dishwasher
detergent
have different
amounts
of phosphorus.
Phosphorus softens water
and
helps
prevent
water
spots on dishes.
If water
is hard and
phosphorus
content
is
low (8.7% or less], you
may need to use more
detergent
or use a
brand
with a higher
phosphorus
content
(12% or higher).
The detergent
detergent
The amount of detergent
to use
depends
on the hardness of your
water. If too llttle is used, dishes won’t
be clean. However, if too much is
used in soft water, glassware
will
begin to etch.
Find out your water’s hardness by
asking
your local water department, water softener company
or
county extension agent.

dispenser has one section with
a cover and one without.

Energy sating tips
You can help save energy
if you:
1. Wash full loads. Running a half-filled
dishwasher uses the same amount of electricity
and hot water as a fully loaded machine.
2. Use the LOW ENERGY NORMAL cycle for normally soiled loads. It uses less hot water and
energy
than

Special tips on dishwasher use
Remember,
use your dishwasher
only for the job It was designed
to do.
Some items are not dishwasher
safe or may require special care.
Read these special tips for the following items:
Ahk’UUU:
Aluminum loses its bright, shiny appearance
and darkens in color due to
minerals in the water and the alkalinity of the dishwasher detergent. Colored aluminum may
fade.
TIPS: If washed in the dishwasher avoid placing directly in front of detergent dispenser
where it could be sprinkled with undissolved
detergent, causing spotting, pitting, and
discoloration.
Follow utensil manufacturers’
cleaning
instructions.
China: Hand-painted, metal-trimmed, and antique china may fade due to high water
temperatures
and alkaline detergent
solution in the dishwasher.
TIPS: Delicate,
antique items should not be washed in the dishwasher.
Load carefully.
Do not allow pieces to touch each other. Test one piece by washing it daily in the
dishwasher for several weeks. Then compare
it with the rest of the set to see if colors have
changed.
and decorative @asses: Crystal can break from sudden exposure to high
CryStd
water temperature.
Metal trim and colorful decoration
on glass will fade in time when
washed in the dishwasher.
TIPS: Delicate,
antique items should not be washed in the dishwasher.
Load carefully
in top rack only. Be sure to load a few larger items in the bottom rack to reduce amount Of
force of water spray reaching glassware
from lower spray arm. Use the shortest cycle.
Flatware:
Salty and acidic foods may tarnish silver and stainless flatware if allowed to
remain on the utensils. A film may form on sterling silver and silver plate items washed in a
dishwasher. This film is caused by reaction of silver with chlorine in the detergent.
Gold
flatware
is not dishwasher
safe.
TIPS: Rinse flatware as soon as possible, especially
if it is not to be washed right away.
Dishwasher detergent
may remove antique finishes. Wash by hand. Tarnish and film
build-up can be removed with silver polish.

Some plumbing
codes require use of a drain air gap between an undercounter
dishwasher
and the drain system
of the house. The air gap is usually located
above the sink
or on the top of the counter near the dishwasher
to prevent
the possibility
of water backing
up from the drain into the
dishwasher
due to a plugged
drain. The drain air gap is
NOT a part of the dishwasher
and is NOT covered
by the
dishwasher
warranty.
The drain air gap should be kept
clean to insure proper draining
of the dishwasher
If you need service or assistance, we suggest

problems often result from little
things you can find and fix yourself without tools
of any kind.
If your dishwasher
will not run, or stops during
a cycle:
l Is the
door tightly
closed
and securely
latched?
l Has the
cycle been correctly
set?
l Is the water
turned on?
l Have
you checked
your home’s main fuses or
circuit breaker box?
l Is the dishwasher
wired into a live Circuit with
the proper voltage (undercounter
models]?
l If the motor
has stopped because of an overload, it will automatically
reset itself within a
few minutes. If the motor does not start, call for
service.
If water remains in the dishwasher:
l Has the cycle
completed?
l A small
amount of remaining
water is normal.
l Is drain

l Is the

l Is the dishwasher
