Important Safety Instructions

WARNING

For your safety the information in this manual must be followed to minimize the risk of fire or explosion or to prevent property damage, personal injury or loss of life.

Proper Installation

Please read the Installation Instructions carefully and follow all instructions when installing the dishwasher.

• This manual does not cover every possible condition and situation that may occur.

Use common sense and caution when installing, operating and maintaining any appliance.

• Water supply inlet temperature should be between 120°F (48.9°C) and 135°F

(57.2°C).

• Dispose of the discarded appliance and packing material properly.

• The dishwasher must be properly grounded, or it can result in a risk of electric shock.

See Installation Instructions for details.

• If there is any damage to the dishwasher, please contact to your Dealer, do not attempt to repair or replace any part by yourself.

Basic Precautions Before Use

• Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.

• The manual does not cover every possible condition and situation that may occur.

Use the dishwasher only for intended function as described in this manual. When loading items to be washed:

• Load sharp items and knives so that they are not likely to damage the door seal and tub.

• Load sharp items and knives with the handles up to reduce the risk of injury.

• Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked dishwasher safe. If not marked, check with manufacture for recommendation. Items that are not dishwasher safe may melt and create a potential fire hazard.

• If the dishwasher drains in to a food disposer, make sure disposer is completely empty before running dishwasher.

• Do not tamper with controls.

• Do not operate your dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are properly in place.

• Do not touch the heating element during or immediately after use, especially if the

SANITIZE option has been selected.

• To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or on a dishwasher.

• Do not let children abuse, sit, or stand on door or racks of the dishwasher.

• Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS

EXPLOSIVE. If the 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.

• Use only detergents or rinse agents recommended for use in a dishwasher and keep them out of the reach of children.

• Keep young children and infants away from dishwasher when it is operating.

3

Important Safety Instructions

• Do not use the dishwasher if it has a damaged power line or plug, and do not plug the dishwasher into a damaged outlet. Failure to observe these instructions may result in electrical shock.

• Remove the door to the washing compartment when removing an old dishwasher from service or discarding it.

WARNING

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

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

Features at a Glance

Your dishwasher, illustrated below, cleans by spraying a mixture of hot, clean water, and detergent against the soiled surfaces of your dishes and tableware. The dishwasher fills with water covering the filter area. Water is then pumped through the multiple filter and spray arms. Separated soil particles go down the drain as the water is pumped out and replaced with clean water. The number of water fills will vary with the cycle being used.

Smart Wash System

This dishwasher has a Smart Wash System.

It can determine the type of cycle required and automatically adjust the cycle to clean the dishes more efficiently. When a partial load of lightly soiled dishes is placed in the unit, a wash cycle similar to a short wash will automatically be performed.

When a full load of heavily soiled dishes is placed in the unit, a heavy wash cycle will automatically be performed.

Multiple Filter System

This dishwasher has a multiple Filter System.

In the System there are three mesh filters. It can separate soiled water and clean water in different chambers.

The multiple filter system helps to get better performance with less water and less energy.

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.

Loading the Upper Basket

Features and appearance of racks and silverware basket as shown may vary from your model.

9

Standard 8 place setting for upper basket.

Preparing and Loading Dishes

The upper basket has been designed for small plates, mugs, glasses, and plastic items marked “dishwasher safe”, etc. For best results, place the bowls, cups, glasses with soiled surface facing down 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 dishes 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.)

• The fold-down tines in the bottom basket make it easy to load those extra large and hard-to-fit items. The tines may be left up for normal use or folded down for more flexible loading. Fold down for more space to load large pots or pans.

Load your plates into the dishwasher 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.

Large items should be turned so that the inside faces downward. Load large items such as pans and pots into the dishwasher so their open sides face downwards. We recommend loading cups, stemware, and small plates into the upper basket.

Larger items should be placed along the edge so they do not interfere with the spray arm rotation. Check to ensure that they do not prevent the detergent dispenser from opening.

Loading the Lower Basket

Features and appearance of racks and silverware basket as shown may vary from your model.

WARNING

Make sure the loaded dishes 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.)

Loading the Silverware Basket

Features and appearance of racks and silverware basket as shown may vary from your model.

Standard 8 place setting for lower basket.

The bottom basket is designed to load plates, soup bowls, plates, saucers and cookware.

• The adjustable basket space will allow you to load items with a maximum height of 11 inches.

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.

Load sharp items (knives, skewers, etc.) pointing down. Failure to do so may result in injury.

NOTE

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.)

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.

Adding a Dish

To add or remove items after cycle starts:

1. Make sure there is a full wash cycle yet to be completed so that any added items are thoroughly washed and rinsed.

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.

Filling the Detergent Dispenser

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

WARNING

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.

NOTE

The flap is always open at the end of a dishwashing cycle.

11

Detergent and Rinse Aid Dispenser

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

To refill the rinse aid dispenser:

1. Lift up end tab of rinse aid cover to open.

3. Press down on the top of 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.

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.

WARNING

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

WARNING

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

• DO NOT use powdered rinse aid in the rinse aid dispenser.

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.

If white spots and odor are still present in your dishwasher, run the Normal cycle with the dishwasher empty and without detergent until it flushes. Then, interrupt the cycle and put an 8 ounce cup of white vinegar into the lower basket. Close the dishwasher and let the cycle finish.

WARNING

DO NOT remove the tub front seal (the long rubber seal enclosing the opening of the dishwasher).

1. Turn off the dishwasher.

NOTE

If your dishwasher has a stainless steel door panel, you can clean it with a stain less steel cleaner for Home Appliances or a similar product using a clean, soft cloth.

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

Express 60 cycle with the SANITIZE option.

This will keep your dishwasher clean.

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

13

Care and Cleaning

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

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

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

.

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.

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

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.

CAUTION

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