s’introduire à l’intérieur de cet appareil ou
d’un vieil appareil qui ne sert plus.
• Ne permettez jamais à des enfants de jouer à
proximité d’un lave-vaisselle quand vous ouvrez
ou fermez la porte. Ils peuvent se coincer les
doigts dans la porte.
WARNING! RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT
PROPER DISPOSAL OF THE DISHWASHER

dangerous…even if they will sit for “just a
few days.” If you are getting rid of your old
dishwasher, please follow the instructions below
to help prevent accidents.
Door latch
keeper
Before You Throw Away Your Old Dishwasher:
•Take off the door of the washing compartment
or remove the door latch keeper (as shown).
AVERTISSEMENT! RISQUE D’ENFANT MIS AU PIÈGE
BONNE DISPOSITION DU LAVE-VAISSELLE
Les machines à laver la vaisselle abandonnée
ou jetée sont dangereuses...même si elles sont
abandonnées «juste pendant quelques jours».
Si vous jetez votre vieux lave-vaisselle, veuillez
suivre les instructions suivantes pour prévenir
tout accident.

WATER HEATER SAFETY
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.
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 allowing 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.
SÉCURITÉ DU CHAUFFE-EAU
Dans certaines conditions, il peut se former de
l’hydrogène à l’intérieur d’un chauffe-eau qui
n’a pas servi pendant deux semaines ou plus.
L’HYDROGÈNE EST UN GAZ EXPLOSIF.
Pour réduire les risques de dommages ou de
blessures lorsque l’eau chaude n’a pas été
utilisée depuis deux semaines ou plus, ouvrez
tous les robinets d’eau chaude et laissez l’eau
couler pendant plusieurs minutes avant
d’utiliser un appareil électrique raccordé au
système d’eau chaude. Vous éliminerez ainsi
l’hydrogène qui pourrait s’y être accumulé.
Puisqu’il s’agit d’un gaz inflammable, ne fumez
pas ou n’utilisez pas une flamme nue au cours
de ce processus.

Start a
Wash Load
To start the dishwasher, open the dishwasher door so that the top-of-door controls are visible. The
last used cycle will be displayed. To begin this cycle, press the START button. To select a different
cycle, press the desired Cycle Selection and Option buttons, and then press the START button.
After the door is closed and latched, the selected cycle will begin.
To interrupt/pause a cycle, gently open the door just enough to turn off the wash motor. Do not
fully open the door until the wash action ceases.
WARNING: Do not fully open door while the dishwasher is in operation. Quickly opening the
door while the dishwasher is operating could result in serious scalding. Be careful
when opening the door; the hot steam that escapes when the door is opened may
cause injuries. Stand back as you open the door and allow the steam to escape.
AVERTISSEMENT : N’ouvrez pas complètement la porte lorsque la laveuse fonctionne. Une
ouverture rapide de la porte lorsque l’appareil est en fonctionnement
peut entraîner de sérieuses brûlures. Faites attention lorsque vous ouvrez
la porte; la vapeur brûlante qui s’échappe lors de l’ouverture de la porte
peut causer des blessures. Tenez vous en arrière lorsque vous ouvrez la
porte afin de permettre à la vapeur de s’échapper.
To restart the wash process, close the door until it locks in place. There may be a time delay of
up to a few minutes because the temperature inside the dishwasher needs to stabilize before it
restarts the wash cycle.
To cancel the cycle after it has started, press and hold the START/CANCEL button for 3 seconds.
The dishwasher will then drain and the cycle indicator lights will flash. At this point a new wash
cycle can be selected. If a new cycle is not selected, all the Cycle Indicator lights will go out after
the dishwasher drains. If you have selected a new wash cycle, remember to add more detergent to
the detergent compartment if required.

NOTE: The above chart is a general guide. Detergent
amounts should be adjusted depending on the amount
and type of soil until satisfactory results are achieved.
Using the dishwasher
Dishwasher
Water
Temperature
The entering water must be at least 120°F
(49°C) and not more than 150°F (66°C), 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 a Rinse
Agent
A rinse agent improves dry performance,
reduces spots and prevents new film build-up
on your dishes, glasses, flatware, cookware
and plastic.
•If rinse agent spills, wipe it up immediately.
It can keep your detergent from working.
Fill the rinse agent chamber by rotating the
round cap counterclockwise and remove. Fill
chamber to maximum level. Replace and lock
the cap into place.
To check if rinse agent is needed: a solid black
indicator indicates sufficient rinse agent; a clear
indicator indicates a low level and requires
adding more rinse agent.
•A full dispenser should last about one month.
•If after washing you notice cloudy spots,
streaks or water marks on the glassware, and
the rinse agent dispenser is not empty, it may
be necessary to increase the dispenser settings.
To do so, remove the cap and using a butter
knife, rotate the indicator arrow to a higher
number. Replace the cap when done.
•If glasses appear smeared or there is foam
present on the bottom of the glasses or the
bottom of the machine, select a lower dosage
number.
•For softened water, reduce dispenser setting.
Light level Indicator
Adjust to higher or lower number
Detergents
Use only detergent specifically made for use
in dishwashers. Keep your powdered 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.
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.
When using automatic dishwashing detergent
tabs, place one tab in the main cup and close.
Be sure the Cycle Status Indicators (on some
models) are not lit before adding detergent.
Otherwise, the detergent cup will not close and
latch properly. Add detergent then close the
main cup.
NOTE: To open detergent cup after it has been
closed, push the lever latch inward.

Loading the Racks
Dishwasher
Upper Rack
The upper rack is for glasses, cups, bowls and saucers.
Cups and glasses fit best along the sides. This is also a
secure place for dishwasher-safe plastics.
Fold-down cup rack
can support extra cup
The cup shelf may be placed in the up or down
position to add flexibility. The cup shelf can also secure
wine glasses at an angle for best washability. Because
wine glasses come in various sizes, after loading, slowly
push in the rack to make sure they will clear the top of
the dishwasher.
Fold-down cup rack can
support glass stems
The upper rack is good for all kinds of oddly-shaped
utensils. Saucepans, mixing bowls and other items
should be placed face down.
Secure larger dishwasher-safe plastic items over two
fingers when possible.
Fold-down tines (on some models) provide flexibility
for extra-large and hard-to-fit items.
Make sure small plastic items are secure so they can’t
fall onto the heating element.
Adjusting
Upper Rack
Height
The upper rack can be raised or lowered to
provide extra room for different sized items.
Empty the upper rack. Remove the rail pegs
in the front of the rack runners by squeezing
and lifting the top of the peg, then slide the
rack out.
Re-insert the rack in the chosen position and
replace the pegs. Check that the spray arm is
free to rotate.

Features and appearance of racks and silverware baskets may vary from your model.
Silverware
Basket
Put flatware in the removable basket with fork and 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.
Flip-down covers can be lowered to secure lightweight items from the effects of the vigorous wash
action. The slots in the covers can be used to separate silverware.
Don’t let any item
extend through bottom
Lower Rack
Flip-down covers can
be lowered to secure
lightweight items
When loading the lower rack, do not load large platters
or trays in the front left 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 sides. 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.
Fold-down fingers provide flexibility for extra large
and hard-to-fit items.
The fingers may be left in the up position or folded
down to customize the lower rack.

Care and Cleaning
Dishwasher
Exterior
To clean the control panel use a lightly dampened cloth then dry thoroughly. To clean the
exterior painted panels use a good appliance polish wax.
Never use sharp objects, scouring pads or harsh cleaners on any part of the dishwasher.
Use stainless steel cleaner on stainless steel panel. You can order Stainless Steel Magic # WX10X15
through GE Parts in the USA, by calling 800.626.2002. In Canada, call 1.888.880.3030.
Interior
The stainless steel tub can be cleaned with Stainless Steel Magic or a similar product using
a clean, soft cloth.
Use stainless steel cleaner on stainless steel panel. You can order Stainless Steel Magic # WX10X15
through GE Parts in the USA, by calling 800.626.2002. In Canada, call 1.888.880.3030.
Wipe the rubber door seals occasionally, including the seal at the bottom of the door.
Protect
Against
Freezing
If your dishwasher is left in an unheated place during the winter, ask a service technician to:
1. Cut off electrical power to the dishwasher. Remove fuses or trip circuit breaker.
2. Turn off the water supply and disconnect the water inlet line from the water valve.
3. Drain water from the water inlet line and water valve. (Use a pan to catch the water.)
4. Reconnect the water inlet line to the water valve.
5. Remove the filters from the tub bottom and use a sponge to soak up water.
The Air
Gap
An air gap protects your dishwasher against
water backing up into it if a drain clogs. The air
gap is not a part of the dishwasher. It is not
covered by your warranty. Not all plumbing
codes require air gaps, so you may not have one.
Two types of
air gaps
The air gap is easy to clean.
1. Turn off the dishwasher and lift off the
chrome cover.
2. Unscrew the plastic cap and clean with
a toothpick.
20
Check the air gap any time your dishwasher
isn’t draining well.
Removing
and Cleaning
the Spray
Arms and
Glass Trap
Periodically, remove and clean the spray arms
to make sure that none of the nozzles have
become blocked.
Pull up to remove
To remove the lower spray arm, grasp the
center of the spray arm and pull upwards, it
will unclip. When replacing, make sure the
spray arm is fully seated and spins.
The plastic cone on the underside of the spray
arm can be detached by unscrewing it
counterclockwise.
To remove the upper spray arm, carefully
unscrew the spray arm from the plastic tower.
To achieve this, hold the inner tower steady
and unscrew the spray arm clockwise. To
replace the spray arm, carefully screw the spray
arm counterclockwise onto the inner tower.
Rotate counterclockwise to
remove cone
To clean the upper and lower spray arms, rinse
them under running water and make sure
spray nozzles are clear.
The glass trap is located in the stainless steel
filter at the base of your dishwasher. The glass
trap is used to collect larger food items and
other foreign objects, which may be too big to
pass through the drain pump. For best wash
performance, check the glass trap occasionally.
To remove the glass trap, twist counterclockwise,
rotate the glass trap and lift. To clean the glass
trap, empty and rinse thoroughly. To replace,
reverse these steps making sure the glass trap
locks into place.

The super fine filter is self-cleaning, there is
no need to clean it. This filter need only be
removed if you want to remove the right half
of the stainless steel filter.
Replace your filters in the reverse order,
starting with the right half of the stainless
steel filter. Then screw in the tower. Replace
the super fine filter over the tower by pressing
firmly on the outer edge until it clips into
place and reposition the lower spray arm.
Reconnect the micro-mesh filter to the left
half of the stainless steel filter prior to
replacing it back into the dishwasher. Then
replace the glass trap. Ensure that all filters are
replaced correctly for best results.
