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.

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.

NOTE

Racks and Features in your dishwasher model may vary in appearance from illustrations in this manual.

Getting started

To run your dishwasher, follow these basic steps:

1. Load Dishwasher (see loading instructions).

2. Add detergent to the dispenser (see

Filling the detergent dispenser).

3. Add Rinse Aid to the dispenser, if needed (see Using the rinse aid dispenser).

4. Run hot water faucet nearest dishwasher until water is hot. Turn water off.

5. Select desired cycles (see Cycle selection).

6. Select desired options (see Option selection).

7. To start, press

START

pad and close door immediately.

6 Features

NOTE

If the dishwasher door is opened while the unit is running, the START/CANCEL pad must be pressed and the door shut immediately to return the unit to the selected cycle and option. This must happen within 10 minutes for the unit to continue the cycle.

Energy use

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

cycle 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.

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 dishwasher.

If the user prefers to save energy and dry the dishes by hand they select the

AIR

DRY

option. If you prefer to spend slightly more energy to get the dishes drier then turn the

AIR DRY

option off and select one of the heated dry options. In response the wash and rinse temperatures in the cycle will be increased.

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.

DishSense

TM

technology

Your unit has DishSense TM 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 each cycle. This will assure that whatever is loaded will be cleaned.

NOTE

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. Energy use during this first run may be higher than would be typical.

Controls and Settings 7

Cycles Options

Operation

Wash cycle and options

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.

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.

How much detergent to use

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.

NOTE

Detergent tablets and All-In-One packs may not dissolve completely if used with the

FAST

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.

NOTE

To achieve the best results from your dishwasher, visit www.dishwashingexpert.com for general tips regarding the performance and operation of your dishwasher.

Main Wash Cover

• Use only fresh automatic dishwashing detergent. Other detergents may cause oversudsing.

• When using automatic dishwashing detergent tabs, place one tab in main wash cup and close.

• Add detergent just before starting cycle.

• Store detergent in a cool, dry location.

Moist or caked detergent may not dissolve properly.

NOTE

Hard water may cause lime deposit buildup on the interior of the dishwasher.

For cleaning instructions see “Removing

Spots and Film” section.

CAUTION

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.

For very hard water, detergent alone may not be enough. A water softener is recommended to improve water quality and dishwashing performance. Try adding more detergent at the beginning of the main wash portion of the cycle. As a rule, use

1 teaspoon for each grain above 12. Unlatch the door, open slowly add detergent to the bottom of the tub. Close the door to latch and the dishwasher will continue through the cycle.

Filling the rinse aid dispenser

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:

1. Lift up the rinse aid cover to open.

2. Fill the rinse aid dispenser with liquid rinse aid until the liquid reaches the indicated fill level. DO NOT overfill.

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

4. Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth.

The dispenser holds enough for 11 to 66 washes, depending on setting.

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.

To replace the fine filter, press down and rotate clockwise until the arrows are aligned. A mechanical click will indicate that the filter is firmly in place.

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:

1. Rotate it counterclockwise.

2. Lift it out and empty the contents.

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.

3. Clean the filter by rinsing under running water and replace. It may be necessary to use a sponge or bottle brush to remove excess food residue.

20 Care and Cleaning

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.

Troubleshooting 21

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.

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.

NOTE

If the dishwasher door is opened while the unit is running, the START/CANCEL pad must be pressed and the door shut immediately to return the unit to the selected cycle and option. This must happen within 10 minutes for the unit to continue the cycle.

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. Press

START

. 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.

PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSES/SOLUTIONS

Food soils left on dishes

• Choose another cycle for longer washing time.

• Choose the HI TEMP wash option.

• Check rack loading section for proper loading

• Avoid nesting items.

• Home water pressure may be too low-should be 20 to 120 pounds per square inch (psi).

(49°C). (See Factors Affecting Performance.)

• Check water hardness. For extremely hard water, it may be necessary to install a water softener. (See Detergent Chart).

• Use Fresh Detergent.

• Make sure items are not blocking the spray arms, preventing them from rotating.

Dishes not dry • Select heat dry option.

• Make sure the rinse aid dispenser is filled.

• Increase the discharge setting of rinse aid. (See Rinse Aid).

• Check the incoming water temperature. Be sure it is at least

120°F (49°C).

• Check for proper loading-avoid nesting items.

• Plastic items may need to be towel dried.

• Cups with a concave bottom will collect water. Load them at the far left of the upper rack so they will be held in a tilted position.

Glassware/ flatware spotted or cloudy

• Check water hardness. For extremely hard water, it may be necessary to install a water softener. (See Detergent Chart).

• Water temperature may be low. Avoid extremely low or high temperatures. (See Factors Affecting Performance.

PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSES/SOLUTIONS

Dishware chipped

Water in bottom of tub

Dishware stained or discolored

Cycle takes a long time

• Load with care and do not overload. (See Preparing and Loading

Dishes).

• 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.

• 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).

• 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).

• Aluminum utensils can leave gray/black marks when they rub against other items. Load Properly.

• Certain high acid foods can cause discoloration of stainless steel and plastics if allowed to sit for a long period. Use the RINSE cycle or rinse by hand if not operating dishwasher at once.

• Mixing stainless steel and silver utensils in silverware basket can cause pitting of the stainless steel blades. Avoid mixing stainless steel and silver.

• Is cycle in a water heating delay?

• Has the DELAY option been selected?

• Has the SANITIZE option been selected?

• Normal sounds include water fill, water circulation and motor sounds.

• Use only fresh detergent designed for automatic dishwashers.

Measure detergent carefully. Try a different brand.

Normal sounds you will hear

Dishwasher leaks

Etching

Detergent left in dispenser cup

• 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.

• Detergent may be old. Discard and use fresh detergent.

• Be sure the dish load doesn’t block spray from entering the detergent cup.

• Check to see if cycle has been completed.

• Make sure items do not prevent the detergent dispenser from opening.

Dishwasher does not drain properly (error code i20)

Dishwasher has an odor

Stains on tub interior

• Water vapor escapes from the vent during the drying part of cycle. This is normal.

• Spilled rinse aid can cause foam and lead to overflowing. Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth.

• Check to see that dishwasher is level. (See Installation

Instructions).

• Check to see if circuit breaker is tripped or if a fuse is blown.

• Check that the water supply is turned on and the pressure of the water supply is not too low. (Contact your local water company).

• Check that the water tap is open and is not clogged.

• Check that the cycle is set correctly. (See Operating Instructions).

• Check that the dishwasher is not set for DELAY.

• Check to see if the knockout plug has been removed from inside the food waste disposer inlet.

• Check the sink spigot is not clogged.

• Check to see if drain hose is free of kinks and bends.

• Check to see if the cycle is complete, not in a pause.

• Soiled dishes left in dishwasher too long can create an odor. Use the RINSE cycle.

• There will be a “new” smell when first installed. This is normal.

• Check to see if unit is draining properly. (See Dishwasher Does

Not Drain Properly).

• 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.
