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 is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word “DANGER” or
“WARNING.” These words mean:
DANGER
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately follow these
instructions.
WARNING
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow these 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 these instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: When using the dishwasher, follow basic precautions, including the following.
• Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door, lid,
or dish rack of the dishwasher.
• 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 or lid to the washing
compartment when removing an old dishwasher
from service or discarding it.
• 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 seal; and
2. Load sharp knives with the handless up to
reduce the risk of cut-type injuries.
• 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 operate the dishwasher unless all
enclosure panels are properly in place.
• Do not tamper with controls.

the Customer Care Centre immediately.
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.
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.

LOADING SUGGESTIONS
• Remove leftover foods, bones, toothpicks and
other hard items from the dishes. To conserve
water, energy and save time it is not necessary
to rinse dishes before putting them into the
dishwasher.
• 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 results,
water must be able to drain from all surfaces.
• Load heavy pots and pans carefully. Heavy items
can dent the stainless steel interior if they are
dropped!
• Ensure pot lids and handles, etc., do not
interfere with the spray arm rotation.
• Conserve water, energy and save time over
hand rinsing by running a rinse cycle to keep
dishes moist if you do not plan to wash them
straight away. 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:
• Ensure lightweight items are held securely in the
rack.
• Ensure pot lids and handles, etc., do not touch
interior walls or interfere with the rotation of
the spray arm.
• Load dishes so they do not touch one another.
• Place items upper surfaces down for cleaning
and draining.
• China, crystal and other delicate items must not
touch each other during dishwasher operation ,
or damage may occur.
• Load small items in the rack secuely.
• Load plastic items so the force of the spray arm
does not move them during the cycle. Only
wash plastic items marked “Dishwasher safe”.
• To avoid chipping, do not led stemware touch
other items.
• Small bowls, pans and other utensils can be
placed in the rack. Load bowls in the centre
section for stability.
• Load plates, soup bowls, etc., between tines.
• Overlap the edges of plates for large loads.
• 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 together as
the spray will not reach all surfaces.
• Load cake tins and other large items at the side
and front only as loading such items at the back
can keep the water spray from reaching the
Rinse Aid Dispenser.
• Place heavily soiled cookware face down in the
rack.
• Ensure pot handless and other items do not
stop rotation of the spray arm. The spray arm
must rotate freely.
• Do not load items between the rack and the left
side of the dishwasher tub as they might block
the water inlet opening.
Fold-Down Cup Shelf
Fold down the cup shelf on the rack front to hold
additional cups, stemware or long items such as
utensils and spatulas. Fold up when you need room
for larger items in the main rack.
LOADING RACK
This rack is designed for cups, glasses, plates, pans,
casseroles and utensils. Many items, up to 28 cm
(11 in), will fit in the rack.

Removable Rack Inserts
The large, medium and small removable rack
inserts (see “Parts and Features” section) allows
you to adjust the rack depending on the type of
load you are washing. You can remove, or move
the inserts to customize the rack for a particular
load. This is useful when washing a variety of
dishes, pots and pans or roasting tins.
To remove insert
Lift up on insert handle and lift insert out of rack.
NOTE:
Remove the cutting board before running a cycle.
Leaving the cutting board on the lid can keep the
lid from opening at the end of the cycle, reducing
drying performance. See “Cleaning” for care
instructions.
LOADING CUTLERY BASKET
Load the cutlery basket while it is in the rack or
take the basket out for loading on a couner or
table.
To install insert
Place the insert end legs under the rack cross wire.
Place the cutlery in each section of the basket with
some pointing up and some down to avoid
‘nesting’. Spray cannot reach ‘nested’ items.
Push down until handle fits against outer rack edge.
IMPORTANT:
Always load sharp items (knives, skewers, etc.)
pointing down.
NOTES:
• Do not load silver or silver-plated silverware
with stainless steel. These metals can be
damaged by contact with each other during
washing cycle.
• 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.
Extra-large wood cutting board
The movable cutting board allows you to decide
the best location for food preparation. Use the
cutting board on the dishwasher closed lid or any
other location you choose.
IN-SINK DISHWASHER WASH SYSTEM
The three-level wash system provides excellent
cleaning results. Three levels of filtration filter the
wash water and prevent food particles from being
re-deposited back onto the dishes.
• A coarse strainer as part of the drain stopper
assembly, prevents bones and other large
objects from entering the pump system.

Dishwasher loading
• Items small enough to pass through the coarse
strainer are caught in the drain screen basket.
• The wash water continuously flows through the
drain fine screen filter, trapping food particles.
• Two water jets, located under the spray arm,
remove the food particles from the Drain fine
screen filter.
NOTE:
Before each wash load, check the coarse strainer,
the drain screen basket and the fine screen filter
removing any objects and soil particles. Also check
the spray arm, it should rotate easily.
DRYING SYSTEM
The In-sink dishwasher wash system features
FLASHDRY instant drying. At the end of the cycle,
the lid automatically pops open and vapour
escapes. This results in fast, efficient drying of your
dishes.
IMPORTANT:
The vapour is hot. Do not touch the lid opening
during drying. Do not place anything on top of the
lid when running a cycle.

Rinse aid dispenser
Rinse aids prevent water from forming small
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. If you use “4 in 1”
tablets (with rinse aid) do not fill rinse aid
dispenser.
3. Add rinse aid until container is full.
4. Clean up any spilled rinse aid with a damp cloth.
5. Replace the cap and tighten.
Filling the dispenser
The rinse aid dispenser holds 100 ml of rinse aid.
Under normal conditions, this will last for about 3
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 lid is fully open.
Locate the rinse aid fill on the right-hand side of
the dishwasher back wall.

(0 to 5,75° n)
For normally-soiled
loads
• Add 2 tsp or 10g
For heavily-soiled
loads
• Use dishwashing detergent only. Other
detergents can produce excessive suds and
foaming that overflow out of the dishwasher,
reducing washing performance.
• Add detergent just before starting a cycle.
• Store detergent in a tightly closed container in a
cool, dry place. Using fresh, automatic
dishwasher detergent results in better cleaning.
• The use of tablets is approved for this
dishwasher. We recommended the use of “3 in
1” or “4 in 1” tablets. For “4 in 1” tablets see
“Rinse Aid Dispenser” section.

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 phosphorus 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%.
For normally and
heavily-soiled loads
• Add 1 Tbsp or 15g
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.
For best cleaning and drying results we
recommend using 3in1 or 4in1 tablets.

Dishwasher care
To clean the 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.
To clean the drain air gap
Clean the drain air gap periodically to ensure
proper drainage of your dishwasher. Lift off the
outer cover. Unscrew the plastic cap. Then check
for any soil build-up. Clean if necessary.
NOTE: The fill air gap is located to the right of the
drain air gap and does not require maintenance.
STORING
Storing for the summer
Protect your dishwasher during the summer
months by turning off the water supply and power
supply to the dishwasher.
DRAIN AIR GAP
Check the drain air gap any time the dishwasher
isn’t draining well.
If a drain is clogged, the drain air gap protects your
dishwasher from water backing up into it. If there
is leakage from air gap check connection of
dishwasher to water-pipe network (See Installation
Instructions).
‘Winterising’ 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 winterised by contacting our
Customer care Centre.

Troubleshooting
First try the solutions suggested here and possibly
avoid the cost of a service call...
DISHES ARE NOT COMPLETELY CLEAN
Food soil left on the dishes
• Is the dishwasher loaded correctly? Refer to the
“Dishwasher Loading” section.
• Is the water temperature too low? For best
dishwashing results, water should be 49°C
(120°F) as it enters the dishwasher.
• Did you use the correct amount of fresh
detergent? Use recommended dishwasher
detergents only. For best results use “3 in 1” or
“4 in 1” tablets. Refer to the “Detergent Use”
section.
• Is the pump or spray arm clogged by labels from
bottles and cans? If you wash bottles and cans in
your dishwasher, check for labels clogging the
pump or spray arm.
• Are high suds slowing the wash arm? Never use
soap or laundry detergents. Use recommended
dishwasher detergents only.
DISHWASHER IS NOT OPERATING
PROPERLY
Dishwasher does not run or stops during a
cycle
• Is the lid closed tightly and latched?
• Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle
Selection Charts”.
• Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a
household fuse blown or circuit breaker
tripped?
• Has the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI)
tripped? Indicator should be in “1” position (See
“How to test Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter
(GFCI)” section).
• 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 Drain stopper closed? If it is not closed
properly, water indicator indicates there is no
water in dishwasher. Failure mode is activated
(See Service Instruction”). Reset program, install
Drain stopper properly and restart program.
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 or use “4 in 1” tablets (try to
avoid using “4 in 1” tablets and filled rinse aid
dispenser).
• Is the water temperature too low? For best
dishwashing results, water should be 49°C
(120°F) as it enters the dishwasher.
NOTE:
To remove spots and film from dishes, try a white
vinegar rinse. The procedure is intended for
occasional use only. Vinegar is an acid and using it
too often could damage your dishwasher.
1. Wash and rinse dishes. Remove all silverware or
metal items.
2. Put 1 cup (250 ml) white vinegar in a glass or
dishwasher-safe measuring cup on the rack.
3. Run the dishwasher through a complete washing
cycle. Do not use detergent. Vinegar will mix
with the wash water.
Dishwasher will not fill
• Is the water shut-off valve (if installed) turned
on?
Dishwasher seems to run too long
• Is the water supplied to the dishwasher hot
enough? The dishwasher runs longer while
heating water
• 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
Odour 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.

Troubleshooting
Silica film or etching (silica film is a milky,
rainbow-coloured 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 tsp (5g) per load. Use
a liquid rinse aid and under load the dishwasher to
allow thorough rinsing. Silica film and etching are
permanent and cannot be removed.
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.
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 to not
strike together from washing action.
NOTE:
Antiques, feather-edged crystal and similar types of
china and glassware might be too delicate for
automatic dishwashing. Wash by hand.
White spots on cookware with non-stick finish
Has the dishwasher detergent removed cookware
seasoning? Re-season cookware after washing in
the dishwasher.
Brown stains on dishes and dishwasher
interior
Does your water have high iron content? Rewash
dishes using 1-3tsp (5-15g) of citric acid crystals
added to the covered section of the detergent
dispenser. Do not use detergent. Follow with a Eco
wash cycle with detergent. If treatment is needed
more often then every other month, the
installation of an iron removal unit is
recommended.
SCRATCHES
Minor scratches on the surface of the sink or
dishwasher
Scouring with a mild abrasive kitchen cleaner in the
direction of the grain lines will blend scratches into
the finish of the sink.
Black or grey marks on dishes
Are aluminium items rubbing dishes during
washing? Disposable aluminium items can break
down in the dishwasher and cause marking.
Handwash these items. Remove aluminium
markings by using a mild abrasive cleaner.
Orange stains on plastic dishes or dishwasher
interior
Are large amounts of tomato-based foods on
dished placed in the dishwasher? Stains gradually
fade over time. Stains will not affect dishwasher
performance. Regular use of a rinse cycle will
reduce the likelihood of staining.
