Very Important Information - Read
Before Operating Your Dishwasher!
Normal Operating Sounds
This dishwasher does not sound like most
dishwashers - IT'S QUIETER.
Your Direct Feed Wash System dishwasher uses
energy efficient motors for the wash and drain
portions of the cycle you select. Each cycle has
a series of water fills and drains for washing and
rinsing dishes. As each cycle begins, you may-or
may not- hear the drain motor. The next sound
you will hear is the splashing water as it enters the
tub.

The dishwasher is programmed to remember
your last cycle so you do not have to reset each
time. To start the dishwasher using the same
cycle and options selected on the previous wash,
PLEASE BE ADWSED: If you compare this
dishwasher to previous models, you may be
surprised at what you DON% hear.
Why Energy Efficient Units run long cycles:
Several factors are important to washing dishware.
The energy use of the dishwasher was reduced
by applying more of the factors that don't use so
much energy and less of the ones that use more.
As a result, you will see that the wash cycles take
longer.
pad.
..............................
Not all cycles and options available on all
models
Your dishwasher cleans by spraying a mixture of hot water and detergent through the spray arms
against soiled surfaces. First, the dishwasher drains for a few seconds to remove soils dropped while
loading, then fills with water covering the filter area. Water is then pumped through the spray arms. Soil
particles go through and across the filter and down the drain as the water is pumped out. This series of
steps are repeated as needed. The number of water fills varies with the cycle being used.

Your dishwasher uses a DishSenseTM Technology to understand how much food is on the dishes and then
adjusts the cycle accordingly.
Wash Cycle Selections
Sanitize
Cycle times are approximate and will vary with
options selected. Hot water is necessary to
activate dishwasher detergent and melt fatty food
soils. An automatic sensor will check the incoming
water temperature and, if it is not hot enough,
the cycle will be lengthened for automatic water
heating in the main wash and final rinse of all
cycles. This happens even when HIGH option
has not be selected. When HIGH is selected, an
even higher temperature will be reached to handle
heavier soil loads.
To sanitize your dishes and glassware, select
SANITIZE option, by pressing SANITIZE pad.
When selected, the light will come on and remain
on until end of cycle. The water temperature in
the final rinse will be raised to 155°F (68°C) and
will maintain that temperature for 9 minutes. This
option is available in Power Plus and Normal Wash
Cycles. Only these sanitization cycles have been
designed to meet NSF requirements.
Option Selections
High
By pressing the HIGH pad, the option is selected.
The dishwasher heats water in main wash to
approximately 140°F (60°C).
This increase in water temperature helps
dishwasher detergent remove food grease and soil
from dishes more effectively and aids in drying.
The cycle time will be extended until the
water temperature is reached. Washing

The sanitize criteria may not be satisfied if there is
an interruption of the cycle, power failure or if the

NSF requirements for sanitization are not reached.
To turn off the SANITIZE option, press the
SANITIZE pad. The SANITIZE light will turn off.
Air Dry
The AIR DRY option in combination with rinse aid
will enhance drying performance. AIR DRY option
is not available on all cycles.

Dish Preparation
Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits,
toothpicks, etc. The continuously filtered wash
fluid will remove remaining food particles.
Burned-on foods should be loosened before
loading. Empty liquids from glasses and cups.
Foods such as mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar,
lemon juice and tomato based products may
cause discoloration of stainless steel and plastics
if allowed to sit for a long period of time. Unless
the dishwasher is to be operated at once, it is
best to pre-rinse or use the rinse only cycle to
rinse off these food soils.

Load racks so that large items do not
prevent the detergent dispenser from

Check manufacturer's recommendations
before washing items in question.

Add the item and wait a few seconds to allow
cold air to slowly expand inside dishwasher.
•
Close door firmly to latch and resume
cycle.
FUling the Detergent Dispenser
How much Detergent to use
The detergent dispenser has a main wash cup
where you will add your detergent or detergent
tab.
The amount of detergent to use depends on the
water hardness. Water hardness is measured in
grains per gallon. Using too little detergent can
result in poor cleaning and hard water filming
or spotting. Using too much detergent in soft
water can cause etching to some glassware which
is surface damage that appears like a film but
cannot be wiped off. Your local water company,
water softener company or county extension
agent can tell you the water hardness in your
a rea.
•
Use only fresh automatic dishwashing
detergent. Other detergents may cause
oversudsing.
When using automatic dishwashing detergent
tablet, place one tablet in main wash cup and
close.
Add detergent just before starting cycle.
Store detergent in a cool, dry location. Moist
or caked detergent may not dissolve properly.

Rinse Aid
How to adjust the rinse aid dosage
Rinse aid greatly improves dryingr reduces
water spots, filming,
With it water"sheets"
off dishes rather than forming water droplets that
cling and leave spots.
Press and hold the RINSE ONLY pad for 5 seconds
until the display shows rinse aid level. Pressing
the DELAY START pad increases the increment
level (L1 - L4),
A dispenser, located next to the detergent cup,
automatically releases a measured amount of
rinse aid during the last rinse. If spotting and
poor drying are problems, increase the amount
of rinse aid dispensed. The indicator will be dark
when full and will show clear when it is time to
refill.
Once the rinse-aid level reaches L4, the display
will start back at level L1.
To add liquid rinse aid, open the cover. Pour in
rinse aid until liquid touches the indicated fill
level. Close the cover.
Do not overfill since this can cause oversudsing.
Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth.
The dispenser holds enough for 11 to 66 washes,
depending on setting.
Pressing the START button or just pausing for a
few seconds confirms the rinse aid level setting:
the display shows the duration of the cycle.
Water Pressure
The hot water line to dishwasher must provide
water pressure between 20 and 120 psi.
Low water pressure may occur when laundry
or showers are in operation. If you experience
poor wash performance you may need to wait
until water use is reduced before starting the
dishwasher.
Water Temperature
Hot water is needed for best dishwashing and
drying results. Water entering dishwasher should
be at least ::[20°F (49°C) to give satisfactory
results.
Indicator
To check water temperature entering dishwasher:
•
Turn on hot water faucet nearest dishwasher
for several minutes to clear cool water from
pipes.
Pl idment
Hold a candy or meat thermometer in the
water stream to check the temperature.
If temperature is below 120°F (49°C), have
a qualified person raise the hot water heater
thermostat setting.

however you will have items in your dish
load that will not be completely dry at the
end of the cycle,
Outside
= Occasionally wipe with a mild
nonabrasive detergent and water. Rinse and dry.
Care of Drain Air Gap
Ifa drain air gap was installed for your built-in
dishwasher, check to make sure it is clean so the
dishwasher will drain properly. A drain air gap
is usually mounted on the counter top and can
be inspected by removing the cover. This is not
part of your dishwasher and is not covered by
warranty.
Clean the Cylinder Fine Filter
The Cylinder Fine Filter is designed to collect
some big items such as broken glass, bones
and pits. The Cylinder Fine Filter needs to be
cleaned to maximize wash performance.
Remove the Cylinder Fine Filter as shown, rotate
it counterclockwise, lift it out, empty and clean it
by rinsing under running water and replace. Use
of a sponge or bottle brush may be necessary to
remove all food residue.
Clean the Coarse Filter
Take out the Cylinder Fine Filter and remove the
Coarse Filter from the dishwasher tub bottom.
Flush the Coarse Filter by holding it under running
water and replace.
