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. Before using a
dishwasher that is connected to a hot water
system that has been unused for two weeks
or longer, 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 explosive, do not smoke or
use an open flame during this time.
Remove the door to the washing
compartment
when removing an old
dishwasher from service or discarding.
To avoid floor damage and possible mold
growth, do not allow wet areas to remain
around or under the dishwasher.
Protect your dishwasher from the elements.
Protect against freezing to avoid possible
damage to the fill valve. Damage caused by
freezing is not covered by the warranty.

Adding Detergent and Rinse Aid (continue€
Detergent
Table
To avoid dishwasher
damage, do not use
hand dishwashing
products in your
dishwasher.
Use only detergent specifically designed for
dishwashers.
For best results, use fresh
powdered
dishwashing
detergent.
This dishwasher
uses less water so you need to
use less detergent. With soft water, 1 tablespoon
(15ml) of detergent will clean most loads. The
detergent dispenser cup has lines that measure
detergent to 1 tablespoon
(15ml) and 1.75
tablespoons
(25ml). 3.5 tablespoons
(45ml) of
detergent will completely fill the detergent
dispenser cup.
To avoid dishware damage, do not use too
much detergent
if your water supply is soft.
Using too much detergent in soft water may
cause etching
in glassware.
NOTE: If you do not know the hardness of your
water supply, use 15ml of detergent. Increase the
amount of detergent, if necessary, to the least
amount required to get your dishware and
kitchenware
clean.
Use the measuring lines in the detergent
dispenser cup as a guide to measure the amount
of detergent recommended
in Table 1.

superior performance
from your dishwasher.
Wiping Up Spills and Splash-out

open the dishwasher door during a cycle.
Immediately wipe up any water that spills or
splashes out.

Self Help
Dishwashers
may occasionally
exhibit problems
that are unrelated to a malfunction of the
dishwasher itself. The following information may
help you with a dishwasher problem without your
having to call a repair person.
Dishes do not dry
The rinse aid dispenser may be empty. Check the
rinse aid dispenser and refill it if necessary.
Dishware drying can be accelerated and
enhanced by opening the dishwasher door slightly
and propping it open with the top rack.
Indicator light(s) do not come on
Check the fuse or circuit breaker at your fuse box/
breaker box and replace the fuse or reset the
breaker if necessary.
Dishwasher
does not start
Make certain the dishwasher
door is shut and
latched. Make certain to press the START button
before closing the door.
Suds in dishwasher
You may have used the wrong type of dishwasher
detergent. Use only automatic dishwasher
detergents.
White spots or streaks left on dishes and
glassware
Go to the Rinse Aid Adjustment
section of this
manual for instructions on increasing the amount
of rinse aid.
Rattling
Utensils
noises
may not be properly
arranged.
Machine cycle does not advance to rinse
NOTE: The Installation
instructions that came
with your dishwasher will help you with the
following instructions.
The water supply line may be shut off. Check the
water supply valve and open it if it's shut.
Detergent
dispenser
cover will not shut
You may not be correctly shutting the detergent
dispenser cover, or a cycle was not finished and
should be canceled. Go to the Adding
Detergent
and Rinse Aid section of this manual for
instructions on shutting the detergent dispenser
cover. Go to the Operating
the Dishwasher
section of this manual for instructions on
canceling a cycle.
Unsatisfactory
washing
results
• Incorrect amount of detergent.
• Utensils incorrectly arranged or rack
overloaded.
o Spray arm rotation blocked by utensils.
o Spray arm nozzles need cleaning.
• Filters not properly fitted into position.
Unsuitable cycle selected.
Water not pumped from dishwasher
Make certain the drain hose isn't kinked, clogged,
or improperly installed. Make certain a portion of
the drain hose is at least 20 inches above the
dishwasher's
enclosure floor (see the Installation
Manual). Filters may be clogged. Make certain
the filter system isn't clogged (see the Care and
Maintenance
section of this manual). The kitchen
sink drain may be clogged; you may need a
plumber rather than a serviceman for the
dishwasher.
If an air gap is installed at sink, it
may be clogged.
Dishwasher
runs a long time
May be due to cold incoming water. Before
starting the dishwasher, open the hot water
faucet at the sink nearest the dishwasher.
Run
the water until it runs hot, then turn off the water
and start the dishwasher.

The NSF Symbol
A dishwasher or a dishwasher cycle that has the NSF symbol
has been certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) to
meet very strict requirements
of wash time and water
temperature to ensure dishware and kitchenware sanitization.
These requirements
are explained in the document ANSI/NSF
184, Residential Dishwashers.
More information on NSF
Certification is available at the NSF website,
http://www.nsfconsu
mer.org/home/appliances.asp.
Your dishwasher is NSF Certified. The dishwasher cycles that
are NSF certified are Auto Super Wash, Auto Wash and Auto
Delicate Wash. When these cycles are complete, the "Sanitized"
indicator on your dishwasher control panel will illuminate.
NOTE: If your household water supply is too hot, your
dishwasher's
heating time may be reduced and the "Sanitized"
light or symbol may not illuminate. Your dishwasher Installation
instructions has information on the recommended
temperature
for your household hot water supply.
