Feature Overview
How your dishwasher cleans
Your dishwasher cleans by spraying a mixture of hot water and detergent through the spray arms against
soiled surfaces. First, the dishwasher drains for a few seconds to remove soils dropped while loading,
then fills with water covering the filter area. Water is then pumped through the spray arms. Soil particles
go through and across the filter and down the drain as the water is pumped out. This series of steps are
repeated as needed. The number of water fills varies with the cycle being used.

Operating Instructions
Energy Use
Normal Operating Sounds
The yellow energy guide label that came on your
unit tells how much energy it would use in one year
and how it compares to others that are available.
The energy is based on the Normal cycles
response to tests that apply soils and dishware that
simulate the average use. Eight place settings of
dishware and some serving pieces are used during
the test. The total energy is based on running
the average number of cycles per year, applying
typical soil levels to the dishware and half the time,
selecting the option of using extra energy to more
fully dry the dishware. Actual energy and water use
will depend upon the cycle and options you select.
Your dishwasher uses energy efficient motors
for the wash and drain portions of the cycle you
select. Each cycle has a series of water fills and
drains for washing and rinsing dishes. As each
cycle begins, you may or may not hear the drain
motor. You may also hear the splashing of water as
it enters the tub and the spray arms as they rotate
and circulate water. The wash motor often pulsates
throughout the cycle, which varies water pressure
and optimizes performance.
This unit uses an in-line water heating element
that is located under the tub. There is no exposed
heater that plasticware might come in contact
with or that is accessible to touch. The heat is
taken to the dishware through the heated water.
For this reason, plastic dishware may be placed
where it best fits in either the top or bottom
rack. Temperatures are uniform throughout the
If the user prefers to save energy and dry the
dishes by hand they select air dry instead of
heated dry. Air dry is still an option. If you prefer to
spend slightly more energy to get the dishes drier
then turn the air dry option off. In response the
wash and rinse temperatures in the cycle will be
This will help the cleaning and it will also get the
dishwasher hotter. When the final drain removes
all standing water, the extra heat stored in the
dishware will act to evaporate the remaining water.
Your unit provides a selection of cycles. In general,
the more water used by a cycle and the hotter the
temperatures it reaches the more energy that it
uses. Several cycles, such as the Normal cycle will
change their response based on soil level, options
selected, and ambient conditions. The Normal
cycle is good for all around use. Other cycles are
focused toward special use like the Heavy cycle
that is designed for heavily solid cookware.
Normal Operating Lights
Your dishwasher pad lights when either the Cycle
or Option desired is selected. All cycle and option
pads have a white back light when the pads are
deselected and turn blue when selected. In Delay
selection and Rinse Aid setting, the deselected
pads are turned off.
Your unit has DishSenseTM Technology that
is used to understand how heavily soiled the
dish load is so the cycle can be automatically
adjusted to the appropriate response. This
helps to prevent energy waste. The sensor is
calibrated at the end of the cycle. For the first
cycle after power is applied (when first installed
or after a power failure) the sensor will not be
calibrated and so cannot determine the soil
load. Therefore, your unit will provide a response
suitable for heavy soils on the first run after power
is restored. This will assure that whatever is
loaded will be cleaned. Energy use during this
first run may be higher than would be typical.
Operating Instructions
Wa s h C y c l e S e l e c t i o n s
Cycle times are approximate and vary by options
selected. Hot water is necessary to activate
dishwasher detergent and melt fatty food soils.
An automatic sensor checks the water temperature
for the main wash of each cycle. When HI-TEMP
is selected, the sensor checks for an even higher
temperature. Run hot water in a faucet nearest the
dishwasher until water is hot before starting.
Cycle Selections
The Smart Sensor checks the soil level on your
dishes in the Auto, Normal and Eco cycles. Cycle
time and water usage will vary based on the
amount of soil on the dishes.
The dishwasher’s Smart Sensor technology will
determine the type of cycle required to clean the
dishes and will clean more efficiently every time.
When a partial load of lightly soiled dishes are
placed in the unit, a wash cycle similar to a short
wash will automatically be performed. When a full
load of heavily solid dishes are placed in the unit, a
heavy wash cycle will automatically be performed.
Water usage ranges from approximately 3.0 to 7.4
gallons. Wash time ranges from approximately 118
to 200 mins.
For pots, pans, casserole dishes and dinnerware
with dried-on or baked-on soils. Water usage
ranges from approximately 7.1 to 8.1 gallons.
Wash time ranges from approximately 129 to 189
For lightly soiled and pre-rinsed dishes
and silverware. Water usage ranges from
approximately 4.3 to 7.7 gallons. Wash time ranges
from approximately 86 to 93 mins.
For rinsing dishes that will be washed later. Water
usage is approximately 2.2 gallons. Cycle time is
approximately 15 mins.
This cycle allows you to program your preferred
cycle and options into one button. To program
this cycle: select the cycle and options your desire
then press and hold the Favorite pad until the pad
becomes blue. The selected cycle and options
are saved as the FAVORITE. All the settings that
were chosen are illuminated with a blue light.
Once programmed, simply press the Favorite pad
to select the saved cycle and options, press the
START pad and close the door immediately to start
your programmed cycle.
For regularly soiled and pre-rinsed dishes and
silverware. Water usage is approximately 4.5
gallons. Wash time is approximately 30 mins.
For lightly soiled and pre-rinsed dishes and
silverware when you do not have a full load. Water
usage is approximately 3.5 to 4.3 gallons. Wash
time ranges from approximately 52 to 128 mins.
For regularly soiled dishes and silverware. Water
usage ranges from approximately 3.0 to 7.4
gallons. Wash time ranges from approximately 118
to 200 mins.
For regularly soiled China and Crystal. Water
usage is approximately 4.9 gallons. Wash time
ranges from approximately 96 to 116 mins.
Opening the door during normal operation will
only pause the selected cycle.
Operating Instructions
Energy Option Selections
When HI-TEMP option is selected, the dishwasher
heats water in the main wash to approximately
1400F (600C).
This increase in water temperature helps
dishwasher detergent remove food, grease and soil
from dishes more effectively and aids in drying. HITEMP option can only be used with AUTO, HEAVY,
NORMAL and UPPER cycles.
To sanitize your dishes and glassware, select the
SANITIZE option. This option heats the water
temperature in the final rinse to 1570F (69.40C)
and maintains that temperature for 7 minutes.
SANITIZE is available in Auto, Heavy, and Normal
cycles. Only these sanitization cycles have been
designed to meet NSF requirements.
The cycle time will be extended until the proper
water temperature is reached. Washing action will
continue during the water heating delay. For best
results, the incoming water temperature should be
at least 1200F (490C).
If the SANITIZE option is selected, the pad
illuminates with a blue light. The sanitization
criteria may not be satisfied if there is an
interruption of the cycle, a power failure occurs,
or if incoming water temperature is below 1200F
Sanitize pad flashes at the end of the cycle if the
NSF requirements for sanitization are not reached.

Dishwasher Dispenser & Detergents
Filing the Detergent Dispenser
How much Detergent to use
The detergent dispenser has one covered cup.
The covered cup opens automatically to release
The amount of detergent to use depends on the
water hardness. Water hardness is measured in
grains per gallon. Using too little detergent can
result in poor cleaning and hard water filming or
spotting. Using too much detergent in soft water
can cause etching to some glassware which is
surface damage that appears like a film but cannot
be wiped off. Your local water company, water
softener company or county extension agent can
tell you the water hardness in your area.
Use only fresh automatic dishwashing
detergent. Other detergents may cause
When using automatic dishwashing detergent
tabs, place one tab in main wash cup and
Add detergent just before starting cycle.
Store detergent in a cool, dry location. Moist or
caked detergent may not dissolve properly.
Main Wash Cup
The use of industrial grade detergent can damage
parts of the dishwasher leading to damage to
the unit and surrounding property. Use only
household grade automatic dishwasher detergent.
Hard water may cause lime deposit buildup
on the interior of the dishwasher. For cleaning
instructions see “Removing Spots and Film”
Main Wash Cover
Detergent tablets and All-In-One packs may not
dissolve completely if used with the Quick Wash
cycles. If one of these products are used, place
the tab or pack directly on the bottom of the tub
in a corner before starting the dishwasher, rather
than placing these products in the dispenser.

slowly add detergent to the bottom of the tub. Close the door to latch and the diswasher will continue
through the cycle.
Dishwasher Dispenser & Detergents
Rinse Aid
Rinse aid greatly improves drying, reduces water
spots, filming, and lubricates wash arm bearing for
proper rotation. With it water “sheets” off dishes
rather than forming water droplets that cling and
leave spots.
A dispenser, located next to the detergent cup,
automatically releases a measured amount of rinse
aid during the last rinse. If spotting and poor drying
are problems, increase the amount of rinse aid
dispensed. The indicator will be dark when full and
the status window will show LOW RINSE when it is
time to refill.
To add liquid rinse aid, open the cover. Pour in
rinse aid until liquid touches the indicated fill level.
Close the cover.
Do not overfill since this can cause oversudsing.
Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth.
The dispenser holds enough for 11 to 66 washes,
depending on setting.
How to adjust the rinse aid
The rinse aid dosage is shown in the Status
Window. Press and hold the RINSE pad for 5
seconds until the Status Window shows L1, L2,
L3 or L4, RINSE pad illuminates with white light,
while the other pads are off. Pressing “RINSE” pad
will change the levels. Once the Rinse-aid level
reaches L4, the level will go back to L1 and start
the count over. Press START pad to save setting,
the setting will be shown for 10 seconds. Press
START pad to save.
Factors Affecting Performance
Water Pressure
The hot water line to dishwasher must provide
water pressure between 20 and 120 psi.
Low water pressure may occur when laundry or
showers are in operation. If you experience poor
wash performance you may need to wait until water
use is reduced before starting dishwasher.
Water Temperature
Rinse Aid
Hot water is needed for best dishwashing and
drying results. Water entering dishwasher should
be at least 120oF (49oC) to give satisfactory results.
To check water temperature entering dishwasher:
Turn on hot water faucet nearest dishwasher
for several minutes to clear cool water from
Hold a candy or meat thermometer in the water
stream to check the temperature.
If temperature is below 120oF (49oC), have
a qualified person raise the hot water heater
thermostat setting.
Rinse Aid Cover
Not selecting the AIR DRY option in
combination with rinse aid will enhance drying
performance. The energy required to use the
AIR DRY option saves pennies per cycle. You
may choose to select the AIR DRY option;
however you will have items in your dish load
that will not be completely dry at the end of the
Before starting a cycle, run hot water to clear
cool water from pipes.
Care & Cleaning
Outside - Occasionally wipe with a mild
nonabrasive detergent and water. Rinse and dry.
Care of Drain Air Gap
If a drain air gap was installed for your built-in
dishwasher, check to make sure it is clean so the
dishwasher will drain properly. A drain air gap is
usually mounted on the counter top and can be
inspected by removing the cover. This is not part
of your dishwasher and is not covered by warranty.
Clean the Cylinder Fine Filter
The Cylinder Fine Filter is designed to collect some
big items such as broken glass, bones and pits.
The Cylinder Fine Filter needs to be cleaned to
maximize wash performance.
Remove the Cylinder Fine Filter as shown, rotate
it counterclockwise, lift it out, empty and clean it by
rinsing under running water and replace. It may
be necessary to use a sponge or bottle brush to
remove excess food residue.
Clean the Coarse Filter
Take out the Cylinder Fine Filter and remove the
Coarse Filter from the dishwasher tub bottom.
Flush the Coarse Filter by holding it under running
water and replace.

Dishwasher Leaks
Place delicate items in top rack.
Place glasses securely against pins and not
over pins.
Load items so they are secure and don’t jar
loose when moving racks in and out. Move
racks in and out slowly.
Make sure tall glasses and stemware will clear
top of tub when rack is pushed in.
Using too much detergent especially in soft or
softened water causes damage that looks like
a film but cannot be removed.
Adjust the amount of detergent based on the
water hardness. (Check Detergent Chart).
Lower the water temperature.
Water in Bottom of Tub
Water left in the tub bottom after the cycle is
complete is not normal. If water remains in the
bottom of the tub, the dishwasher may not be
draining properly. (See Dishwasher Does not
Drain Properly).
Dishware Stained or Discolored
• Tea and coffee can stain cups. Remove the
stains by hand washing in a solution of 1/2 cup
(120 ml) bleach and one quart (1L) of warm
water. Rinse thoroughly.
Iron deposits in water can cause a yellow or
brown film. A special filter installed in the
water supply line will correct this problem. (See
Removing Spots and Film).
Use only fresh detergent designed for
automatic dishwashers. Measure detergent
carefully. Try a different brand.
Detergent Left in Dispenser Cup
Detergent may be old. Discard and use fresh
Be sure the dish load doesn’t block spray from
entering the detergent cup.

create an odor. Use Rinse cycle.

Stains on Tub Interior
Washing large amounts of dishware with
tomato based soil can cause a pink/orange
appearance. This will not affect performance
and will gradually fade over time. Pre-rinsing
or using the Rinse cycle will reduce the
chance of staining. Using no heat dry option
will lessen staining.
Removing Spots and Film
Hard water can cause lime deposit buildup on the
interior of the dishwasher. Dishes and glasses
may also get spots and film for a number of
reasons. (See Glassware/Flatware Spotted or
Cloudy section). To remove buildup, and film,
clean using the following instructions:
1. Load clean dishes and glasses in normal
manner. Do not load any metal utensils or
2. Do not add detergent.
