rack .Thelever is spring loaded to engage the upper
position.
Dish Preparation
Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits,
toothpicks,etc.The continuous filtered wash system
will remove the remaining food particles. Burned-on
foods shouldbe 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 opertated at once itis best to rinse off these
food soils.
If the dishwasher drains into a food disposer,be sure
disposer is completely empty before starting
dishwasher.
2.To lower the rack to the lower position,push the lever
with your thumbs and push downward simultaneously.
To ensure ease of adjustment when adjusting the
rack,ensure that the rack remains level from front
to back and side to side.

CAUTION
TO AVOID BURN INJURY:Slightly open door and
wait until spray arms and wash action stop.Hot
water may splash out of dishwasher.Failure to do
so may result in injury.
Filling the rinse aid dispenser
Rinse aid greatly improves drying and reduces water
spots and filming.Without rinse aid your dishes and
dishwasher interior will have excessive moisture. The
Heated Dry option will not perform as well without rinse
aid.The rinse aid dispenser,located next to the
Detergent cup,automatically releases a measured
amount of rinse aid during the last rinse.
If spotting and poor drying is a problem,increase the
amount of rinse aid dispensed by rotating the dial to a
higher number.The dial is located under the dispenser
cap.
If the rinse aid is low,the Rinse Aid light is illuminated at
the beginning and end of the cycle indicating that it
is time to refill.
Be sure nothing protrudes though bottom of
the basket or rack to block the lower spray
arm.

keep it full, but do not over fill.
1.Open the door,turn the dispenser cap to left and lift
