4 Important Safety Information

• Use care unloading the dishware when the SANITIZE option has been selected.

Contents may be hot to the touch immediately after the end of cycle.

• Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for

2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS

IS EXPLOSIVE. If hot water system has not been used for such a period, before using dishwasher, turn on all hot water faucets and let water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas.

HYDROGEN GAS IS FLAMMABLE. Do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.

• Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

• Disconnect electrical power to dishwasher before servicing.

• Repairs should be done by a qualified technician.

Child safety

• This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

• Close supervision of children is necessary when the appliance is used near children.

As children grow, teach them the proper, safe use of all appliances.

• DO NOT allow children to play in or on the dishwasher

• DO NOT allow children to abuse, sit, stand or play on door or racks of a dishwasher.

• Destroy the carton, plastic bag and other packing materials after the appliance is unpacked. Children might use them for play. Cartons covered with rugs, bedspreads or plastic sheets can become airtight chambers.

• Keep dishwasher products out of children’s reach. To prevent personal injury, observe all warnings on product labels.

• To avoid entrapment and/or suffocation, remove door or door latch mechanism from any dishwasher that is discarded or not in use.

• Failure to comply with these warnings could result in serious personal injuries.

Risk of child entrapment

Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned appliances are still dangerous

– even if they will sit for “just a few days”.

If you are getting rid of your old appliance, please follow the instructions below to help prevent accidents.

We strongly encourage responsible appliance recycling/disposal methods.

Contact your State/Provence Energy

Office, Local Electric and Water Utilities or

Conservation Program Office or visit www.

energystar.gov/recycle for more information on recycling your old washer or dryer.

Before you throw away your old appliance:

• Remove doors or door latch.

• Remove the electric power cord

• Secure all hoses and drain pipes to prevent water from leaking out and creating a slip hazard.

WARNING

To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock or injury when using your dishwasher, follow all the preceding precautions.

Features

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

Loading the Dishes

Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits, toothpicks, etc. The continuously filtered wash system will remove the remaining food particles. Burned on foods should be 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 operated at once it is best to rinse off these food soils. If the dishwasher drains into a food disposer,

be sure disposer is completely empty before starting dishwasher

.

or toward the center. Tilt slightly for better drainage. Load small plates and bowls in two half rows, so that the front of each plate faces the back of the plate in front of it, and the open sides of the plates at the center of the dishwasher face each other.

When loading dishes, pull the upper basket out sufficiently so you can load it without striking the counter.

WARNING

Make sure the loaded items do not interfere with the rotation of the spray arm located at the bottom of the upper basket. (Check this by rotating the spray arm by hand.)

2. Open door slightly until wash action stops before completely opening.

3. Add the item.

4. Close door firmly to latch and press the START button to resume the wash cycle.

WARNING

BURN HAZARD

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.

Detergent and rinse aid dispenser

The detergent and rinse aid dispenser will automatically release the measured amount of detergent and rinse aid at the appropriate time during the dishwasher cycles.

Rinse aid greatly improves drying and reduces water spots and filming. Without rinse aid your dishes and dishwasher interior will have excessive moisture.

The

HEAT 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.

Check the viewing port over rinse aid dispenser to determine if the rinse aid is low. Fill as needed.

NOTE

Your dishwasher is designed to use a liquid rinse aid. The use of rinse greatly improves drying performance after the final rinse. Do not use a solid or bar-type rinse aid. Under normal conditions, the rinse aid will last approximately one month. It is best to keep it full, but do not over fill.

Operating Instructions 11

Filling the detergent dispenser

1. Push the dispenser cover release catch to open the main wash detergent compartment.

WARNING

• DO NOT add regular detergent to the rinse aid dispenser.

2. Add the recommended amount of detergent to the detergent compartment.

3. Press down on the top of the cover to secure.

2. Fill the rinse aid dispenser with liquid rinse aid until full. DO NOT overfill.

NOTE

Use the viewing port when filling the rinse aid reservoir.

WARNING

Do not fill the reservoir above the full level indicator. Excess rinse aid can overflow during the wash cycle.

Filling the rinse aide dispenser

Rinse aid improves the drying performance of the dishwasher.

This dishwasher has been designed to

use liquid rinse aid only.

Using a powdered rinse aid will clog the reservoir opening and cause the dishwasher to malfunction.

NOTE

Visually check viewing port to determine if rinse aid is low. Fill as needed.

3. Press the rinse aid cover down firmly to close.

12 Care and Cleaning

Cleaning the dishwasher

Keeping your dishwasher clean improves its performance, reduces unnecessary repairs, and lengthens its life.

Cleaning the exterior

It’s best to clean spills on the outside of your dishwasher as they occur. Use a soft, damp cloth on the control panel to gently wipe away spills and dust. Do not use benzene, wax, thinner, chlorine bleach, or alcohol. These materials may discolor the inner walls and cause stains. Do not clean the dishwasher by sprinkling water over it and avoid letting water come into contact with any of the electrical parts.

NOTE

If your dishwasher has a stainless steel door panel, you can clean it with a stainless steel cleaner for Home

Appliances or a similar product using a clean, soft cloth.

WARNING

Do not remove the tub front seal (the long rubber seal enclosing the opening of the dishwasher).

Cleaning the filter

To clean the filters:

1. Turn off the dishwasher.

2. Rotate the filter insert counterclockwise to unfasten and then detach the filter insert.

Cleaning the interior

WARNING

BURN HAZARD

Allow heating element to cool before cleaning the interior. Failure to do so can result in burns.

Clean the interior of your dishwasher periodically to remove any dirt or food particles. Wipe the inside of the dishwasher and the inner part of the door with a wet dishcloth. We recommend filling the detergent dispenser with dish detergent, and then running the dishwasher empty periodically using either the

NORMAL

or

FAST

cycle with the

SANITIZE

option. This will keep your dishwasher clean.

If white spots and odor are still present in your dishwasher after initial cleaning:

1. Run the

NORMAL

cycle with the dishwasher empty and without detergent until it flushes.

2. Then, interrupt the cycle and put an

8 ounce cup of white vinegar into the lower basket.

3. Close the dishwasher and let the cycle finish.

3. Remove the fine filter (flat, rectangular).

Care and Cleaning 13

4. Remove any dirt or other remains from the filters, and then rinse them under running water.

5. Reassemble the filters in the reverse order of the disassembly, replace the filter insert, and rotate clockwise to the close arrow.

CAUTION

If the filter insert is not closed properly, its performance will be decreased.

Cleaning the lower spray arm

If your dishwasher does not seem to be cleaning adequately or the spray arm nozzles seem clogged, the lower spray arm can be removed and cleaned. Remove spray arm carefully to avoid damage.

To remove lower spray arm:

1. Check whether the nozzle holes are clogged by food particles.

2. If cleaning is needed, remove the spray arm by pulling it upwards.

3. Clean the nozzles, and then push the spray arm back into place.

4. Rotate the spray arm to check that it is properly in place.

Winterizing

A dishwasher left in an unheated place should be protected from freezing. Have a qualified person do the following.

To disconnect service:

1. Turn off electrical power to the dishwasher at the supply source by removing fuses or tripping circuit breaker.

2. Shut off water supply.

3. Place a pan under the inlet valve.

Disconnect water line from the inlet valve and drain into pan.

4. Disconnect drain line from pump and drain water into pan.

To Restore Service:

1. Reconnect the water, drain, and electrical power supply.

2. Turn on water and electrical power supply

3. Fill detergent cup and run the dishwasher through a

HEAVY

wash cycle.

4. Check connections to make sure they do not leak.

CAUTION

Freezing temperatures may cause water lines to rupture. Be sure all supply lines to and circulating lines within your dishwasher are protected. Failure to do so could result in property damage.

NOTE

See Installation Instructions for more details.

Cleaning the door gasket

If the dishwasher door is not closing properly or if water is leaking from the door during the cycle, check that door gasket is clear of debris. If needed, clean the door gasket with a damp cloth to remove food particles and ensure a tight seal.

14 Troubleshooting

Normal operating sounds

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.

Loud ticking can mean that something is hitting wash arm. Vibrating or rattling sounds can mean dishes are touching each other. See Preparing and Loading

Dishes.

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 silverware.

2. Do not add detergent.

3. Select the

normal

cycle. Press

START

. Close and latch the door.

4. Allow dishwasher to run until it starts the second water fill (approximately

10 minutes).

5. Unlatch an and open door and pour 2 cups of white vinegar into the bottom of dishwasher.

6. Close and latch door and allow cycle to finish.

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

Hot water is needed for best dishwashing and drying results. Water entering dishwasher should be at least 120° F

(49° C) 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 pipes.

• Hold a candy or meat thermometer in the water stream to check the temperature.

• If temperature is below 120° F (49° C), have a qualified person raise the hot water heater thermostat setting.

NOTE

Before starting a cycle, run hot water to clear cool water from pipes.
