AVERTISSEMENT! RISQUE D’ENFANT MIS AU PIÈGE
BONNE DISPOSITION DU LAVE-VAISSELLE
Les machines à laver la vaisselle abandonnée
ou jetée sont dangereuses...même si elles sont
abandonnées «juste pendant quelques jours».
Si vous jetez votre vieux lave-vaisselle, veuillez

WATER HEATER SAFETY
Under certain conditions hydrogen gas may be
produced in a water heater that has not been
used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN
GAS IS EXPLOSIVE.
If the hot water has not been used for two
weeks or more, prevent the possibility of
damage or injury by turning on all hot water
faucets and allowing them to run for several
minutes. Do this before using any electrical
appliance which is connected to the hot water
system. This simple procedure will allow any
built-up hydrogen gas to escape. Since the gas
is flammable, do not smoke or use an open
flame or appliance during this process.
SÉCURITÉ DU CHAUFFE-EAU
Dans certaines conditions, il peut se former de
l’hydrogène à l’intérieur d’un chauffe-eau qui
n’a pas servi pendant deux semaines ou plus.
L’HYDROGÈNE EST UN GAZ EXPLOSIF.
Pour réduire les risques de dommages ou de
blessures lorsque l’eau chaude n’a pas été
utilisée depuis deux semaines ou plus, ouvrez
tous les robinets d’eau chaude et laissez l’eau
couler pendant plusieurs minutes avant
d’utiliser un appareil électrique raccordé au
système d’eau chaude. Vous éliminerez ainsi
l’hydrogène qui pourrait s’y être accumulé.
Puisqu’il s’agit d’un gaz inflammable, ne fumez
pas ou n’utilisez pas une flamme nue au cours
de ce processus.

Using the dishwasher
Dishwasher
Water
Temperature
The entering water must be at least 120°F
(49°C) and not more than 150°F (66°C), for
effective cleaning and to prevent dish damage.
Check the water temperature with a candy or
meat thermometer. Turn on the hot water faucet
nearest the dishwasher, place the thermometer
in a glass and let the water run continuously into
the glass until the temperature stops rising.
Use a Rinse
Agent
A rinse agent improves dry performance,
reduces spots and prevents new film build-up
on your dishes, glasses, flatware, cookware
and plastic. Jet-Dry® and Cascade Rinse Aid®
are recommended rinse agents for Monogram
Dishwashers.
Turn the dispenser cap to the left and lift it
out. Add rinse agent until the indicator window
shows full.
The rinse agent dispenser holds 3.5 oz. of rinse
agent. Under normal conditions, this will last
approximately one month. Try to keep it full,
but do not overfill.
To fill the rinse agent dispenser, make sure the
dishwasher is fully open.
Indicator
window
Clean up any spilled rinse agent with a damp
cloth. Replace the dispenser cap.
The amount of rinse agent released into the
final wash can be adjusted. The factory setting
is at the midpoint. If there are rings of calcium
(hard water) spots on dishes, try a higher
setting. If there is foaming, use a lower setting.
To adjust the setting, remove the dispenser cap;
then turn the adjuster counterclockwise to
increase the amount of rinse agent.

Add a
Dish?
A forgotten dish can be added any time before
the main wash.
• Scrape off hard soils, including bones,
toothpicks, skins and seeds.
• Remove large quantities of any remaining
food.
• Remove leafy vegetables, meat trimmings and
excessive amounts of grease or oil.
• Remove acidic food soils that can discolor
stainless steel.
3. Add forgotten dishes.
4. Close the door.
1. Open the door slightly.
2. Wait until the water spray action stops. Steam

Using the dishwasher
Dishwasher
Detergents
Use only detergent specifically made for use
in dishwashers. Cascade®, Cascade Complete®
and Electrasol® Automatic Dishwashing
Detergents have been approved for use in all
Monogram Dishwashers. Keep your powdered
detergent fresh and dry. Don’t put detergent
into the dispenser until you’re ready to wash
dishes.
All wash cycles except RINSE ONLY require
detergent in the main and pre-wash cup. The
amount of detergent to use depends on
whether your water is hard or soft. With hard
water, fill the main wash section and pre-wash
section completely. With soft water, fill both
sections halfway. When using automatic
dishwashing detergents tabs, simply place one
tab in the main wash section and close.
Protect your dishes and dishwasher by
contacting your water department and asking
how hard your water is. Twelve or more grains
is extremely hard water. A water softener is
recommended. Without it, lime can build up in
the water valve, which could stick while open
and cause flooding. Too much detergent with
soft water can cause a permanent cloudiness of
glassware, called etching.
To fill the dispenser, if the dispenser is closed,
open the cover by depressing the cover latch.
Fill the Main Wash Section with detergent. Fill
the Pre-wash section if needed. Then close the
dispenser cover.
It is normal for the cover to open partially when
dispensing detergent.
Cover

12
Do not use hand dish detergent.
NOTE: Using a detergent that is not
specifically designed for dishwashers will
cause the dishwasher to fill with suds. During
operation, these suds will spill out of the
dishwasher vents, covering the kitchen
floor and making the floor wet.
Because so many detergent containers look
alike, store the dishwasher detergent in a
separate space from all other cleaners. Show
anyone who may use the dishwasher the correct
detergent and where it is stored.
While there will be no lasting damage to the
dishwasher, your dishes will not get clean using
a dishwashing detergent that is not formulated
to work with dishwashers.
Loading the Racks
Dishwasher
Upper Rack
Features and appearance of racks and
silverware basket may vary from your model.
Although the upper rack is for glasses, cups
and saucers, pots and pans can be placed in
this rack for effective cleaning. Cups and
glasses fit best along the sides and should be
placed open-end down. This is also
a secure place for dishwasher plastics.
The utility shelf (on some models) may be
placed in the up or down position to add
flexibility. A wine glass holder secures wine
glasses for best washability.
The upper rack is good for all kinds of
odd-shaped utensils. Saucepans, mixing bowls
and other items should be placed face down.
Fold-down tines (on some models) provide
flexibility for extra-large and hard-to-fit items.
Secure larger dishwasher-safe plastics over 2 tines
when possible.
Make sure small plastic items are secure so they can’t
fall onto the heater.
Be sure that items do not protrude through the bottom
of the rack and block rotation of the middle spray
arm. This could result in poor wash performance
for items in the upper rack.
Check to make sure that no items will block rotation
of the wash arm.
Some models have contoured metal cup
shelves that can secure up to 12 wine glasses
(as shown).
Because wine glasses come in various sizes,
after loading, slowly push in the rack to make
sure they will clear the top of the dishwasher.
13
Loading the Racks
Dishwasher
Adjustable
Upper Rack
(on some
models)
The standard position of your adjustable rack
is “up” which allows for maximum clearance for
your taller items in the lower rack. If you have
taller wine glasses, tumblers or other items to
place in the upper rack, you may want to adjust
the rack to the lower position.
To lower the rack, support the weight of the
rack with your hands as shown and press both
finger pads about 1/4″ toward the inside of the
rack as indicated and guide the rack down to
its lower position.
To raise the rack to the “up” position, pull up
on the center of the rack side frame until the
rack locks into place.
Silverware
Basket
To load flatware, simply push the adjustable
handle to either side (on some models).
Put flatware in the removable basket with fork
and knife handles up to protect your hands.
Place spoons in the basket with handles down.
Mix knives, forks and spoons so they don’t nest
together. Distribute evenly. Small plastic items,
such as measuring spoons and lids from small
containers should go in the bottom of the
silverware basket with the silverware on top.
A variety of options are available regarding the
three-piece silverware basket (on some models)
in your dishwasher. The complete basket is
designed to fit on the right side of the lower
rack. Additionally, each end of the basket is
removable to add loading flexibility to
accommodate flatware and lower rack
capacity needs.
Don’t let any
item extend
through bottom.
The one-piece silverware basket can be
placed in the front, right side or back of the
lower rack.

Lower Rack
Remove the
Upper Rack
The lower rack is best used for plates, saucers
and cookware. Large items such as broiler pans
and baking racks should go along the left-hand
side. Load platters, pots and bowls along the
sides, in corners or in the back. The soiled side
of items should face the center of the rack. If
necessary, oversized glasses and mugs can be
placed in the lower rack to maximize loading
flexibility.
Also, be careful not to let a portion of an item
such as a pot or dish handle extend through
the bottom rack. This could block the wash
arm and cause poor washing results.
You can remove the upper rack to allow space
for large items in the lower rack.
Replace the end caps, then push the rails all
the way back into the dishwasher. Slide the
shower nozzle attachment over the spout.
To remove the upper rack, unsnap and remove
the end caps on each side of the rails.
Fold-down tines (on some models) provide
flexibility for extra-large and hard-to-fit items.
The tines may be left in the up position or
folded down to customize the lower rack.

Remove end cap
Pull the rack straight out and off the rails.
Then fill the lower rack and begin your cycle.
NOTE: Nozzle must be in place with upper
rack removed. If not installed properly, poor
wash performance and noise will result.
NOTE: Don’t forget to remove the shower
nozzle attachment before you replace the
upper rack.

Features
(on some
models)
Cutlery Tray
The cutlery tray holds up to 4 large knifes such
as a carver, chef’s knives, bread knife, etc., that
are too tall to fit in the silverware basket.
Hook the tray onto the rear of the upper rack.
Lay the knives between the guides (as shown).
Bowl Tines
The special large-bowl tines in the lower rack
add flexibility to your loading pattern. They
are useful for serving bowls or other large
bowls.
To use the bowl tines, fold down the 2 rows of
flex tines in front of the bowl tines and load
bowls just as you would in the upper rack.

Care and Cleaning
Dishwasher
Exterior
To clean the control panel use a lightly dampened cloth then dry thoroughly. To clean the
exterior painted panels use a good appliance polish wax.
Never use sharp objects, scouring pads or harsh cleaners on any part of the dishwasher.
The stainless steel panels can be cleaned with CERAMA BRYTE® Stainless Steel Appliance
Cleaner or a similar product using a clean, soft cloth. You can order CERAMA BRYTE® Stainless
Steel Appliance Cleaner through GE Parts by calling 800.626.2002 (for U.S. only). In Canada, call
1.888.880.3030.
Interior
The stainless steel used to make the dishwasher tub and inner door provides the highest reliability
available in a GE dishwasher. If the dishwasher tub or inner door should be scratched or dented
during normal use, they will not rust or corrode. These surface blemishes will not affect their
function or durability.
Protect
Against
Freezing
If your dishwasher is left in an unheated place during the winter, ask a service technician to:
1. Cut off electrical power to the dishwasher. Remove fuses or trip circuit breaker.
2. Turn off the water supply and disconnect the water inlet line from the water valve.
3. Drain water from the water inlet line and water valve. (Use a pan to catch the water.)
4. Reconnect the water inlet line to the water valve.
The Air
Gap
An air gap protects your dishwasher against
water backing up into it if a drain clogs. The air
gap is not a part of the dishwasher. It is not
covered by your warranty. Not all plumbing
codes require air gaps, so you may not have one.
Two types of
air gaps
The air gap is easy to clean.
1. Turn off the dishwasher and lift off the
chrome cover.
2. Unscrew the plastic cap and clean with
a toothpick.
Check the air gap any time your dishwasher
isn’t draining well.

PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE
Control panel lights go
off when you’re setting
controls
Time too long between
touching of selected pads
• Each pad must be touched within 30
seconds of the others. To relight, touch any
pad again, or unlatch and relatch door.
Noise
Some of the sounds you
will hear are normal
• Detergent cup opening.
• The motor stopping during the drying
period.
• Water draining out of the tub immediately
after you touch START/RESET pad.
• Dry fan running.
Utensils are not secure
in the rack or something
small has dropped into
the rack
• Make sure everything is secured in
dishwasher.
Motor hums
• Dishwasher has not been used on a regular
basis. If you do not use your dishwasher
often, set it to fill and pump out once every
week. This will help keep the seal moist.
Detergent left in
dispenser cups
Dishes are blocking the
detergent cups
• Reposition the dishes.
Water standing in the
bottom of the tub
This is normal
• A small amount of clean water around the
outlet on the tub bottom at the back of the
tub keeps the water seal lubricated.
Water won’t pump out
of the tub
Drain is clogged
• If you have an air gap, clean it.
• Check to see if your kitchen sink is
draining well. If not, you may need a
plumber.
• If the dishwasher drains into a disposer,
run disposer clear.
Suds
Correct detergent
wasn’t used
• Use only automatic dishwasher detergents
to avoid sudsing. Cascade®, Cascade
Complete® and Electrasol® dishwasher
detergents have been approved for use
in all Monogram dishwashers.
• To remove suds from the tub, open the
dishwasher and let suds dissipate. Add 1
gallon of cold water to the tub. Pump out
water by starting any cycle and then resetting
the unit after 10 seconds. See Control Panel
section. Repeat if necessary.
Rinse agent was spilled
• Always wipe up rinse agent spills
immediately.
Detergent with colorant
was used
• Some detergents contain colorant (pigment
or dyes) that will discolor the tub interior
with extended use. Check the detergent
cup for signs of any discoloration. If cup is
discolored, change to detergent without any
colorant. Cascade®, Cascade Complete® and
Electrasol® dishwasher detergents have been
approved for use in all Monogram
dishwashers.
Some tomato-based foods
can stain
• Use of the RINSE ONLY cycle after adding
the dish to the load can decrease the level of
staining.
• GE also recommends Cascade® Plastic
Booster™ to help remove these types of
stains.
