DISHWASHER SAFETY
Your
safety and the safety of others
are very
important.
We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all
safety messages.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others,
All

symbol.
"WARNING." These words mean:
1_
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't
immediately follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't
follow instructions.
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you
what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING:
When using the dishwasher, follow basic precautions, including the following:
•
•
Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.
Use the dishwasher only for its intended function.
•
Use only detergents or rinse agents recommended
for use in a dishwasher, and keep them out of the
reach of children.
•
When loading items to be washed:
1) Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to
damage the door seal; and
2) Load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce
the risk of cut-type injuries.
•
Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked
"dishwasher safe" or the equivalent. For plastic
items not so marked, check the manufacturer's
recommendations.
•
Do not touch the heating element during or
immediately after use.
Do not operate the dishwasher unless all enclosure
panels are properly in place.
Do not tamper with controls.
Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door or dish
racks of the dishwasher.
To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to
play in or on 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 the dishwasher
turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow
from each for several minutes. This will release any
accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable,
do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.
Remove the door to the washing compartment
removing an old dishwasher from service or
discarding it.

Before Using Your Dishwasher
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
For a grounded, cord-connected
dishwasher:
The dishwasher must be grounded. In the event
of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding will
reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a
path of least resistance for electric current. The
dishwasher is equipped with a cord having an
equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Tip Over Hazard
Do not use dishwasher
WARNING:
Improper connection of the
equipment-grounding conductor can result in a
risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified
electrician or service representative if you are in
doubt whether the dishwasher is properly
grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with
the dishwasher; if it will not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
until completely installed.
Do not push down on open door.
Doing so can result in serious injury or cuts.
a
For a permanently connected dishwasher:
The dishwasher must be connected to a
grounded metal, permanent wiring system, or an
equipment-grounding conductor must be run
with the circuit conductors and connected to the
equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the
dishwasher.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Electrical Shock Hazard
Electrically ground dishwasher.
Connect ground wire to green ground connector
in terminal box.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in
death, fire, or electrical shock.
Install where dishwasher is protected from the elements.
Protect against freezing to avoid possible rupture of fill valve.
Such ruptures are not covered by the warranty. See "Storing
Your Dishwasher" in the "Dishwasher Care" section for winter
storage information.
Install and level dishwasher on a floor that will hold the
weight, and in an area suitable for its size and use.
Remove all shipping plugs from hoses and connectors (such
as the cap on the drain outlet) before installing. See
Installation Instructions for complete information.

START-UP GUIDE
ULTRA WASH®Soil Removal System
The ULTRA WASH soil removal system gives you sparkling clean
dishes, while using less energy and time. The ULTRA WASH soil
removal system includes:
•
A heavy-duty grinder that acts as a food disposer to grind
and dispose of large food particles.
•
An ULTRA WASH sensor to monitor soil level and adjust the
cycles as needed.
•
An Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) that ensures the
proper water temperature for the selected wash cycle, and
soil level of the load.
Before using your dishwasher, remove ell packaging materials.
Read this entire Use and Care Guide. You will find important
safety information and useful operating tips.

DISHWASHER
LOADING
Loading Suggestions
•
Remove leftover food, bones, toothpicks and other hard
items from the dishes. It is not necessary to rinse the dishes
before putting them in the dishwasher. The wash module
removes food particles from the water. The module contains a
chopping device which will reduce the size of food items.
NOTE: If hard items such as fruit seeds, nuts, and egg shells
enter the wash module, you might hear chopping, grinding,
crunching, or buzzing sounds. These sounds are normal
when hard items enter the module. Do not let metallic items
(such as pot handle screws) get into the wash modure.
Damage can occur.
•
It is important for the water spray to reach all soiled surfaces.
•
Load dishes so they are not stacked or overlapping if
possible. For best drying, water must be able to drain from all
surfaces.
•
Make sure pot lids and handles, pizza pans, cookie sheets,
etc., do not interfere with the spray arm rotation.
Run a rinse cycle to keep dishes moist if you do not plan to
wash them soon. Foods like eggs, rice, pasta, spinach, and
cooked cereals may be hard to remove if they are left to dry
over a period of time.
Quiet operating tips
To avoid thumping/clattering
noises during operation:
•
Make sure lightweight

water softener company, or county extension agent.
Different brands of dishwasher detergent have different
amounts of phosphorus for softening water. If you have hard
water and use a detergent with a phosphorous content of less
than 8.7%, you might need to use more detergent, or use a
detergent with a phosphorous content higher than 8.7%.

Rinse Aid Dispenser
Dishwasher Efficiency Tips
Rinse aids prevent water from forming droplets that can dry as
spots or streaks. They also improve drying by allowing water to
drain off of the dishes during the final rinse by releasing a small
amount of the rinse aid into the rinse water. Your dishwasher is
designed to use a liquid rinse aid. Do not use a solid or bar-type.
Hot water dissolves and activates the dishwashing detergent.
Hot water also dissolves grease on dishes and helps glasses dry
spot-free. For best dishwashing results, water must be at least
120°F (49°C) as it enters the dishwasher. Loads may not wash as
welt if the water temperature is too low.
Checking the dispenser
Check the center of the Fill Indicator cap. Clear means it needs
filling.
To check water temperature
1. Run hot water at the faucet closest to your dishwasher for at
least 1 minute.
2.
Place a candy or meat thermometer
cup.
in a glass measuring
3.
Check the temperature on the thermometer
running into the cup.
4.
If the water temperature at the faucet is below 120°F (49°C),
have a qualified person raise the water heater's thermostat
setting.
OR
Or you can remove the Fill indicator cap. If an "E" is visible, the
dispenser is empty.
Filling the dispenser
The rinse aid dispenser holds 6 oz (175 mL) of rinse aid. Under
normal conditions, this will last for about three months. You do
not have to wait until the dispenser is empty to refill it. Try to keep
it full, but be careful not to overfill it.
1.
Make sure the dishwasher
door is completely
open.
2.
Remove the Fill Indicator cap.
3.
Add rinse aid. Fill to the smallest opening in the lower part of
the dispenser. Overfilling can cause the rinse aid to leak out,
and could cause oversudsing.
\
as the water is
To save water, energy and time, do not rinse dishes before
putting them into the dishwasher.
Use a low energy, quick, or short cycle whenever possible.
These cycles use less hot water and energy than the Normar
cycle.
Use a delay feature (on some models) to run your dishwasher
during off-peak hours. Local utilities recommend avoiding
heavy usage of energy at certain times of day.
During the summer, run your dishwasher at night. This
reduces daytime heat buildup in the kitchen.
4.
Clean up any spilled rinse aid with a damp cloth.
5.
Replace the Fill Indicator cap. Close tightly.
Use the energy-saving dry option whenever possible. Allow
longer drying times (overnight) when using these opUons. Use
a rinse aid to improve drying.
Use cycles or options that add extra heat to the wash or rinse
portion of the cycle only when needed.
Run your dishwasher with full loads. Run a rinse cycle after
meals until the dishwasher is full.

Is the water temperature too low? If needed, turn home
water heater up to ensure water entering dishwasher is at
least 120°F (49°C). Refer to the "Dishwasher Efficiency
Tips" section.
Did you use the correct amount of fresh detergent? Use
recommended dishwasher detergents only. Refer to the
"Detergent Dispenser" section. Never use less than 1 tb
(15 g) per load. Detergent must be fresh to be effective. Store
detergent in a cool, dry area. Heavy soil and/or hard water
generally require extra detergent.
Is detergent caked in dispenser? Use fresh detergent only. Do
not allow detergent to sit for several hours in a wet dispenser.
Clean dispenser when caked detergent is present.

Orange stains on plastic dishes or dishwasher interior
Are large amounts of tomato-based foods on dishes placed
in the dishwasher? Stains gradually fade over time. Regular
use of heated drying will slow fading. Stains will not affect
dishwasher performance. Regular use of a rinse cycle and an
air-dry or energy-saving dry option will reduce the likelihood
of staining.
Did you use the correct amount of effective detergent? Use
recommended dishwasher detergents only. Refer to the
"Detergent Dispenser" section, Never use less than I tb (15 g)
per load. Detergent must be fresh to be effective. Store
detergent in a cool, dry area. Heavy soil and/or hard water
generally require extra detergent.
Sometimes there is a water/chemical reaction with certain
types of glassware. This is usually caused by some
combination of soft or softened water, alkaline washing
solutions, insufficient rinsing, overloading the dishwasher,
and the heat of drying. It might not be possible to prevent the
problem, except by hand washing.
Black or gray marks on dishes
Are aluminum items rubbing dishes during washing?
Disposable aluminum items can break down in the
dishwasher and cause marking. Hand wash these items.
Remove aluminum markings by using a mild abrasive cleaner.
Is the water temperature too low? If needed, turn home
water heater up to ensure water entering dishwasher is at
least 120°F (49°C). Refer to the "Dishwasher Efficiency Tips"
section.
1. Wash and rinse dishes. Use an air-dry or an energy saving
dry option. Remove all silverware or metal items.
