Recommendations for use
Water, Pressure and Temperature
For best operating results, incoming water should be HOT and the
pressure should be between 0.03~1Mpa. Incoming water supply for
the dishwasher is controlled by a ‘low water switch’ application, so
if household water ceases, dishwasher will stop. We recommend for
maximum efficiency and optimum results use HOT WATER ONLY.
How it works:
Your dishwasher cleans by spraying a mixture of hot clean water and
detergent (under pressure) against the soiled surface of dishes. The
water is pumped through a rotating spray arm, drained through a filter
removing food and soiled particles and pumped back through the spray
Soiled water is pumped out and replaced with clean water at the end
of each cycle . For best cleaning results, the water temperature must be
at least 120ªF. To prevent dishwasher damage, the temperature of the
incoming water supply should not exceed 150ªF.
Note: Hard Water conditions will adversely affect the wash ability
performance of your dishwasher. Hard water conditions will also
contribute to “Lime” (white film substance) deposits and/or “Scaling” on
the stainless steel surface of the dishwasher tub and “Heater Element”
located in the sump underneath the removable filter screen. To assist in
minimizing these conditions, it is recommended to periodically operate/
rinse the inside of the dishwasher (empty) using 1 cup of white vinegar
(at least once a week) or special cleaning products that clean calcium
and lime deposits.
Preparing to wash dishes:
For best results, rinse the dishware and perform the following steps before
• Discard big chunks of food from the plate.
• Remove oils and grease.
• Remove sticky and loosen burned-on, foods.
mpty liquids such as juice, soup, soda, coffee or tea from glasses and
Tips to avoid stains and films:
The following suggestions are recommended to prevent stains and films
from dishware and utensils items:
• You must rinse all dishware, silverware, glassware and food containers
right a way after use. Some citric based food products, coffee, tea
and iron deposits in water can cause yellow or brown film on inside
surfaces when left on for a long time and not rinsed immediately.
• Rinse off acid based liquid, such as vinegar or lemon juice right away.
This may cause discoloration over time to your plates, food containers
or internal cabinet.
• Always check manufacturer’s recommendations before you start
washing items.
• You must check your water hardness to see whether you need to use
more or less detergent to wash. If water is extremely hard then it may
be causing stains on items. You may need to use water softener.
• Do not overload the dishwasher.
• Avoid improper loading by overcrowding or nesting plates together.
• Make sure water temperature is at
recommended temperature to wash dishware.
• Do not use too little detergent.
• Do not use old or damp powder detergent.
• Do not load aluminum utensils improperly.
Aluminum utensils can cause gray or black
marks to porcelain utensils if they touch during
the wash cycle.
Loading your Dishwasher
The dishwasher is designed for a standard “6 place setting”.
Optimum Capacity

Note: T he standard plate is 10" inches. For ease of lading/unloading
large size dinner plates from the dish rack, it maybe necessary to
(temporarily) remove the cutlery basket. When loading/unloading
is complete, return the cutlery basket to its original position.
How to load items:
• L ocate sharp items so that they are not likely to damage the door seal.
• Do not load plastic items unless they are marked “dishwasher
safe” or the equivalent. For plastic items not so marked, check the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
• Cups, glasses and bowls must have their openings facing downwards.
• Do not load glasses over the dish rack pins. Glasses loaded over dish
rack pins are not properly supported and are likely to get damaged.
• Arrange all items with recessed or curved sections on a slant to drain
water away.
• Ensure cutlery is not nesting or stuck together. They need to be evenly
spread out. Make sure the cutlery has not fallen through the basket and
stopped the spray arm from rotating.
• Items with wooden or bone handles and items joined together with glue
are unsuitable as they cannot withstand hot water.
Cutlery Basket
Silverware should be placed in the basket with handles at the bottom. If
the rack has side baskets, the spoon should be loaded individually into
the appropriate slots, especially long utensils should be placed in the
horizontal position on the cup shelf.
WARNING: Do not let any item extend through the bottom
of the rack or cutlery basket.
lways load sharp utensils with the sharp
point down!
For personal safety and top quality cleaning, placing the silverware in the
basket using the following guidelines:
• Do not nest utensils together.
• Place silverware with handles down with the exception of knives and
other potentially dangerous utensils which should have handles up.
Proper Use of Detergent
se ONLY detergent specifically made for automatic dishwashers.
Check product packaging to be certain. Keep your detergent fresh
and dry. Do not put powder detergent into the dispenser until
you’re ready to wash dishes.
The amount of detergent to use depends on whether your water is hard
or soft. With hard water, you need extra detergent. With soft water, you
need less detergent. Your water company should be able to tell you how
hard your water is.
For heavily soiled loads, use the HEAVY, NORMAL WASH cycle, fill one
or both of the interior cups, depending on the hardness of your water, and
also fill the open cup on the dispenser lid.Use the information in the table
below as a guideline to determine the amount of automatic dishwasher
detergent to place in the dispenser:
Number of Place Settings Loaded
Detergent Recommendation
Less than 4
Fill compartment marked “15” (A)
4 to 6
Fill compartment marked “25” (B)
To open the detergent storage cover, press the button
and the cover will flip back. After you finish, close the
cover securley. See diagram at right.
Using a Rinsing Agent
Using a rinse aid will help prevent unsightly spots,
films on dishes and glassware, and reduce drying
time. A rinse agent is specially formulated to rinse
away food and detergent residues that can be left
behind on your dishes. Used regularly, a rinse agent
will automatically provide you with cleaner dishes
every time you wash.
Filling the Dispenser
The Rinse Aid dispenser holds 3.5 oz. of rinse agent.
Under normal conditions, this will last approximately one month. Try to
keep it full, but do not overfill.
Make sure the dishwasher door is fully open.
Turn the dispenser knob to the left and lift it out.
Add rinse agent until the indicator window looks full.
Clean up any spilled rinse agent with a damp cloth.
Replace the dispenser knob.
Rinse Aid Setting
The amount of rinse agent released into the final wash can be adjusted.
The factory setting is at the midpoint. If there are rings of calcium (hard
water) spots on dishes, try a higher setting.
To Adjust the Rinse Aid Setting
Remove the dispenser knob; then turn the adjuster counterclockwise to
increase the amount of rinse agent.
Low Rinse Aid Level Indicator
When the rinse aid level becomes low in the dispenser, the "Rinse Aid"
icon in the display will light. Once the dispenser is refilled, the icon will
shut off.

Care and Maintenance
Filter system
The filter system consists of a coarse filter, a flat (main filter) and a micro
filter (fine filter).
1. M
ain filter: Food and soil particles
trapped by this filter are pulverized
by a special jet on the spray arm and
washed down the drain.
2. Fine filter: This filter holds soil and
food residue in the sump area and
prevents it from being deposited on the
dishes during wash cycle.
3. C
oarse filter: Larger items, such as those that could block the drain,
are trapped in the coarse filter. To remove the items caught by the filter,
gently squeeze the tap on the top of this filter and lift out.
The filter efficiently removes food particles from the wash water,
allowing it to be recycled.
For best performance and results, the filter assembly must be cleaned
regularly. For this reason, it is a good idea to remove
the larger food particles trapping in the filter after each
wash cycle by rinsing the filter assembly under running
water. To clean the coarse filter and the fine filter, use
a soft cleaning brush. Reassemble the filter parts as
shown in the diagram and reinsert the entire assembly
in the dishwasher, positioning in its seat and pressing
To remove the filter assembly, grab the handle of the
fine filter, rotate it counter clockwise then pull in an upward direction.
Step 1: rotate the fine filter counter clockwise;
Step 2: lift fine filter up;
Step 3: lift main filter up
NOTE: Reverse this procedure to reinstall the filter.
- Inspect the filters for blocking every time the dishwasher has been used.
- By unscrewing the coarse filter you can remove the filter system. Remove
any food remnants and clean the filters under running water.
WARNING: ·Never run the dishwasher without the filters in place.The
dishwasher must never be used without the filters.Improper replacement of
the filter may reduce the performance level of the appliance and damage
dishes and utensils.The entire filter system should be cleaned once a week
·When cleaning the filters do so carefully as otherwise filters may lose
their shape and the performance of the dishwasher could be effected.
Cleaning The Spray Arm
It is necessary to clean the spray arm regularly for
hard water chemicals that can clog the spray arm
jets and bearings. Wash the arm in soapy and
warm water and use a soft brush to clean the jets.
Cleaning The Control Panel
• To clean the control panel use a lightly dampened cloth then dry
thoroughly. To clean the exterior use a good appliance polish wax.
• Never use sharp objects, scouring pads or harsh cleaners on any part of
the dishwasher.
Cleaning The Door
To clean the edge around the door, you should use only a soft warm,
damp rag
WARNING: Never use a spray cleaner to clean the
door panel for it could damage the door
lock and electrical components. It is not
recommended to use abrasive cleansers
or rough surface paper towels because of
the risk of scratching or leaving spots on
the stainless steel surface.
How To Maintain Your Dishwasher
After every wash
After every wash, leave the door slightly ajar so that moisture and odors
are not trapped inside.
Do Not Use Solvents or abrasive cleaning products
To clean the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher, do not use
