Safety Instructions
For your safety, the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire
or explosion, electric shock, or to prevent property damage, personal injury, or death.
Under certain conditions hydrogen gas may be produced in a water heater that has not been
used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE.
Operating Instructions
If the hot water has not been used for two weeks or more, prevent the possibility of damage or
injury by turning on all hot water faucets and allow them to run for several minutes. Do this
before using any electrical appliance which is connected to the hot water system. This simple
procedure will allow any built-up hydrogen gas to escape. Since the gas is flammable, do not
smoke or use an open flame or appliance during this process.
Use this appliance only for its intended purpose as described in this Owner’s Manual.
This dishwasher must be properly installed and located in accordance with the Installation
Instructions before it is used. If you did not receive an Installation Instructions sheet with
your dishwasher, you can receive one by visiting our website at

Using the dishwasher.
Check the Water Temperature
The entering water must be at least 120°F and
not more than 150°F for effective cleaning and to
prevent dish damage. Check the water temperature
with a candy or meat thermometer. Turn on the
hot water faucet nearest the dishwasher, place
the thermometer in a glass and let the water run
continuously into the glass until the temperature
stops rising.
Use Jet-Dry ® or Cascade Rinse Aid ® Rinse Agent
Jet-Dry® or Cascade Rinse Aid® rinse agent removes spots and prevents new film buildup on your dishes,
glasses, flatware, cookware and plastic.

Safety Instructions
Proper Use of Detergent
NOTE: To open detergent cup after it has been
closed, unlatch the door. Press the START/RESET
pad three times within two seconds and the
detergent cup will release. A snapping sound
may be heard.
Operating Instructions
Use only detergent specifically made for use in
dishwashers. Cascade®, Cascade® Complete and
Electrasol® Automatic Dishwashing Detergents have
been approved for use in all GE dishwashers. Keep
your detergent fresh and dry. Don’t 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.
You’ll find two detergent dispensers on the inside
door of your dishwasher. All wash cycles—except
RINSE ONLY—require detergent in the main cup.
Wash cycles with two washes will also use the open
cup. When using automatic dishwashing detergent
tabs, simply place one tab in the main cup and close.
Open cup
NOTE: Using a detergent that is not specifically designed
for dishwashers will cause the dishwasher to fill with suds.
During operation, these suds will spill out of the dishwasher
vents, covering the kitchen floor and making the floor wet.
Because so many detergent containers look alike,
store the dishwasher detergent in a separate space
from all other cleaners. Show anyone who may
use the dishwasher the correct detergent and
where it is stored.
While there will be no lasting damage to the
dishwasher, your dishes will not get clean using
a dishwashing detergent that is not formulated
to work with dishwashers.
Troubleshooting Tips
Protect your dishes and dishwasher by contacting
your water department and asking how hard your
water is. Twelve or more grains is extremely hard
water. A water softener is recommended. Without
it, lime can build up in the water valve, which could
stick while open and cause flooding. Too much
detergent with soft water can cause a permanent
cloudiness of glassware, called etching.

Forget to Add a Dish?
A forgotten dish can be added any time before the main wash.
1 Push the door latch to the left.
2 Once the water calms, open the door. Steam may rise out of the dishwasher.
3 Add forgotten dishes.
4 Close the door and push the latch to the far right.
Safety Instructions
Loading the dishwasher racks.
For best dishwashing results, follow these loading guidelines. Features and appearance of racks and silverware baskets
may vary from your model.
Upper Rack
Although the upper rack is for glasses, cups and saucers, pots and pans can
be placed in this rack for effective cleaning. Cups and glasses fit best along
the sides. This is also a secure place for dishwasher-safe plastics.
The upper rack is good for all kinds of odd-shaped utensils. Saucepans,
mixing bowls and other items should be placed face down.
Secure larger dishwasher-safe plastics over two tines when possible.
Make sure small plastic items are secure so they can’t fall onto the heater.
Operating Instructions
Be sure that items do not protrude through the bottom of the rack and block rotation of the
middle spray arm. This could result in poor wash performance for items in the upper rack.
Check to make sure that tall items will not block rotation of the top wash arm.
The Wash Tower
Keep the center area clear in the lower rack.
The wash tower rises through the center of the lower rack during the
wash and rinse portions of the cycle. The wash tower shoots water into the
mid-level wash arm located under the upper rack. Blocking the wash tower
could result in poor wash performance for items in the upper rack.
Troubleshooting Tips
Don’t block or load tall things next to the Wash Tower.
Lower Rack
When loading the lower rack, do not load large platters or trays in the front right corner.
They may prevent detergent from circulating during the wash cycle.
The lower rack is best used for plates, saucers and cookware. Large items
such as broiler pans and racks should go along the right-hand side. Load
platters, pots and bowls along the sides, in corners, or in the back. The
soiled side of items should face the center of the rack. If necessary, oversized
glasses and mugs can be placed in the lower rack to maximize loading
Consumer Support
Also, be careful not to let a portion of an item such as a pot or dish handle
extend through the bottom rack. This could block the wash arm and result
in poor wash performance.
Put flatware in the removable basket with knife handles up to protect your
hands. Place spoons in the basket with handles down. Mix knives, forks and
spoons so they don’t nest together. Distribute evenly. Small plastic items,
such as measuring spoons and lids from small containers, should go in the
bottom of the silverware basket with silverware on top.
Don’t let any
item extend
through bottom.
Lids can be assembled to either end of the silverware basket to contain small
items. To assemble an end lid, place the outer lid stud into the hole on the
outside of the silverware basket. Then place the inside lid stud into the inner
hole in the silverware basket. Repeat for other side if desired.
Safety Instructions
Silverware Basket
The silverware basket can be placed in the front, right side or back of the
lower rack.
Operating Instructions
The accessory basket (on some models) can hold small items such as baby
bottle nipples, plastic lids and corn cob holders. It can hang from the top hoop
of the upper rack along the right side or it can also hang on the right or left side of
the lower rack. When hanging the accessory basket on the right side in the upper
rack, make sure the top is closed and nothing is sticking out.
