QShoulda problem arise with tha dishwasher,
follow the suggestions on pages 11, 12, M and
14--.Before YouCdl .5’07”
b%wice.
e I%EWre
your dishwasheris properlygrounded
beforeyou operateit.
* Do x~otuse your dishwmhtn%ielectric circuit
for any other applianceswhile the dishwasher
is operating,
e Be careful not to touch the CalrodWheating
unitat the bottom of tub duringor immediately,
after cycle is completed—itmaybe hot.
* Carefullyload all sharp knives handlesup to
protect your handswhenunloading.
o Wash only “dishwasher-safe” items in yo,ur
dishwasher (see page 10). Load light plastic
items so they will not become dislodged and
drop to the bottom of the dishwasher–they
might come into contact with the heater and
be damaged.
e Use only special low-sudsing detergents developed especially for automatic dishwashers
(seepage 9).
“ Dishwasher detergents and wetting agent
compounds should not be taken internally—
keep them out of reach of smallchildren.
s When fillingrinse agent dispenser,take extra
care to avoid spilling wetting agent. If some is
accidentally spilled, wipe it up with a damp
cloth to avoid excessive foam during next dishwashing operation.
o Your dishwasher uses very little electric
power—about 0.65 kilowatt/hour or less per
normal wash cycle. The power consumption of
your dishwashercan be minimizedif you follow
these suggestions:
1. A dishwasherwill usually hold a whole day’s
dishes. To save time, detergent, water and electric power, operate the dishwasher only when
it is full.
2. When you have only a partial load, use the
Rinse & Hold cycle to rinse off heavy soils.
3. Always select the shortest cycle that will remove the soil from the load.
4. When fast drying of dishes is not necessary,
depress the Drying Option pushbutton marked
HEAT OFF and allow them to dry by their
residual heat. This saves 3570 to 4070 of the
power consumed in a normal wash cycle.

you wiuld expect, severely burned-on soils occasionally may not be completely removed, especially if the surface of the utensil is etched, pitted or otherwise in poor
condition. After washing items of this type, any remainingsoil should be removed by
hand. Discoloration of utensils caused by overheating cannot be removed in the dishwasher.
Load your dishwasherproperly as explainedon pages 5,6 and 7,
Temperatureof water enteringthe tub should be 140° to 150°F. Measurewater temperatureas explainedon page 11,
On ~ModelGSDI050, when water temperature is low, use High Temperature Power

wash and final rinse water to 145°F.
~ Use only fresh recommended dishwasher detergents as indicated on page 9. Do not
use old detergent that is very hard or caked in the container,
* Hard food wastes, such as bones and corn cobs, must be removed. These belong in a
food waste disposer.
* Large amounts of food soil on tableware must be removed —particularly starchy foods
such as mashed potatoes, rice or cooked cereals, because they do not readily dissolve
in water.
~ Some food soils will tarnish silver if allowed to dry. If you do not plan to wash the
dishes soon after loading, you should rinse soils off the silver to prevent tarnishing
(the Rinse & Hold cycle will do this for you automatically).

Silverware should be placed in basket with
handles up. Best washing results are obtained
when silverware is mixed and evenly distributed, not nested together. If you have an unusually large quantity of silverware,better washing
resultsmay be obtained by loading spoons with
handles down to decrease crowding.
Slender items must not extend through bottom
of basket..TaH,pieces must not be placed in the
front of the basket where they may prevent
detergent cup from opening.
Carefully load sharp knives handles up to protect your hands when unloading. Be sure tall
items do not interfere with rotation of the

glasses should be loaded in the second rows of
vertical pins so they rest firmly against the
pins as shown.
Position stemware in the upper rack as shown
so the bowl rests against the vertical pins and

touch each other.
Long-handled cooking forks, spoons and other
flat utensils are placed flat in rack with soiled
surface facing downward.
The upper rack may be adjusted to allow dishwasher to accommodate tall glasses in the
upper rack, large platters in the lower rack, or
a combination of tall glasses and large platters
in the same load.
Normally you will keep the racks with the indicator at the center line. However, when you
need extra height in either rack, simply dial
counterclockwise to lower either side or both,
or clockwise to raise. Each side of the rack
operates independently—you can raise one side
and lower the other to accommodate tall pieces
in both racks on opposite sides of the dishwasher.
Reset rack indicator to center line for ordinary
loads. Always check to be SI.U%? the WdTi
arms above and below the rack mm not
blocked by tall pieces.

The rinse agent dispenserautomaticallyinjects
wet.tirigagent compound into the final rinse
water. By causing the water to flow off dishes
more quickly,it reduceswaterspotting.
NOTE: With soft water, wetting agent is not
generallyrequired.
Before using your dishwasherfor the first time,
unscrew cap on dispenser and add the sample
of wettingagentsuppliedwith the machine.Replace cap and gently tighten-overtightening
may darnagethe dispenser or cap. Dishwasher
will automatically add wetting agent to final
rinse cycle.
The dispenser container holds 4~f ounces of
fluid, or about a four month’s supply. Check
periodically to make sure the container is not
empty and fill as required. Additional wetting
agent may be purchased from your appliance
dealer, departmentstore or grocery store.
If you cannot obtain wetting agent in your
1ocale,write:

CAUTION: Wetting agent fluid shotdd not be
taken internally. When filling dispenser, add
rinse agent carefully to avoid spilling. If some
is accidentally spilled, clean with a damp cloth
to avoid excessive foam during the next dishwashingoperation.

The Dual Detergent Dispenseris located inside
the dishwasherdoor.
Add detergent to cups and close the ALL
WASH CYCLES cup tightly. Whether you
use one or both detergent cups depends on the
type of soil to be removed. For heavy dried-on
or baked-on soils, always use both cups for a
double wash action.
The ALL WASH CYCLES cup opens automatically at the correct time to dispense detergent for the main wash. Detergent in the open
EXTRA CUP is used during the first fill for an
extra wash.
Always add detergent just before you are ready
to run the dishwasher since detergents lose
their effectiveness when exposed to moisture.
The amount of detergent to use depends upon:
(a) size of the load, (b) amount of soil, (c)
dryness and hardness of soil, (d) water hardness, and (e) phosphorus content of the detergent used. Under averageconditions (full mixed
load, moderately hard water and detergent with
8.7% phosphorus) we suggest filling to the
NORMAL FILL line in the cups. If the detergent you have contains 12 to 13Y0phosphorus,
less detergent will be required. For hard water,
use more detergent; for soft water, use less
detergent. Neve~ use less than one tablespoon.

Stainless steel utensils and tableware wash

Colored Anodized Aluminum
Colored anodized aluminumsuch as that used
for some water tumblersmay fade in the dishwasher.
Iron Skillets
Almost all plastic dinnerware available on the
market today is safe in your automatic dishwasher. This is because most brands are made
from melamineplastic. If your dishes are of another type plastic, test one piece in the dishwasher before washing entire set. Eliminating
the heated dry part of the cycle will reduce
the risk.
Most manufacturerswill tell ycm if their plastic
ware is safe in the dishwasher; if they do not,
you may wish to write and ask for their recommendations.
Teflon-coated items may be washed in the dishwasher. After washing, wipe the Teflon area
with vegetable oil to retain its no-stick properties.

Normally sterling silver, silverplate and stainless steel flatware are quite safe in the dishwasher.
Iron skillets should not be placed in the dishwasher. In order to prevent their rusting,they
are oil-seasoned by the manufacturer. The

Silverwaremay discolor when base metal is exposed. These discolorations will appear after the exposed metals have-beensubjected to high
water temperatures.Do not place badly worn silverwarein the dishwasher until it is replated. Since performance of detergent may vary
according to locale, experiment with other recommended detergents.
Detergent crystals standing on ahuninurn or copper may produce

Also, under certain water conditions, some detergents tend to discolor
aluminum. Switch to another recommended detergent. Scour all surfaces with soap-filledsteel wool pads.
Rough handling of dishes will cause chipping. Load with care. Seat
dishes firmly in the racks so they cannot be dislodged. Gksses must
