IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE
WARNING!
This manual does not cover all possible conditions and situations
that may occur. Common sense and caution should always be
used when installing, operating, and maintaining any appliance.
• Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.
• Dishwashers must be electrically grounded. Read the
Installation Instructions for details.
• Use the dishwasher only for its intended purpose.
• Do not run the dishwasher while you are out of the home.
• Use only automatic dishwasher detergents and rinse agents.
• To reduce the risk of injury, keep detergents and rinse aids
out of the reach of children.
• Do not load sharp items near the door; you could damage
the door seal.
• Place sharp knives in the cutlery basket with the sharp ends
down to avoid the risk of cut-type injuries.
• Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked “dishwasher
safe” or the equivalent. For items not marked, check the
manufacturer’s recommendations. Items not dishwasher safe
could become deformed or melt and create a potential fire
hazard.
• Do not operate the dishwasher unless all enclosure panels
are properly in place (i.e., guard plate, access panel, toe kick,
etc.).
• Do not tamper with controls by removing or changing.
• Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the dishwasher door or
baskets.
• To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in
or on a 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 two weeks, 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.
• When removing an old dishwasher from service or discarding
it, remove the door to the washing compartment.
• 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.
• Read the grounding instructions in the installation instructions.
• Should a child swallow dishwasher detergent or rinse aid, give
plenty to drink immediately, i.e., one or two glasses of milk or
water. Do not try to induce vomiting. Seek medical advice
immediately: Call the National Capital Poison Center at
1-800-222-1222.
• Always close the door and start the dishwasher as soon as you
put in the detergent.
• Always keep small children away from the machine when it is
open. There may be some detergent residue left inside the
machine.
• If dishwasher detergent gets in someone’s eyes, rinse them
with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
• Do not allow children to use or play in or on the dishwasher.
• Load sharp objects with the pointed end facing the back of the
dishwasher. Sharp items loaded in the cutlery basket should be
loaded with pointed ends down.
Activate child lock (Kid Safe™)
You can activate the child lock (button lock) to prevent children
from starting the dishwasher (see the section Settings).
WINTER STORAGE/TRANSPORT
• Store the dishwasher where the temperature remains above
freezing.
• Avoid long transport distances in very cold weather.
• Transport the dishwasher upright or laying on its back.
OVERFLOW GUARD FUNCTION
The overflow protection starts pumping out the machine and turns
off the water supply if the water level in the dishwasher exceeds
the normal level. If the overflow protection is triggered, turn off
the water supply and call the Customer Care Center.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
When cleaning the edge around the door, use only a slightly damp
cloth. Do not spray water around the edge! Moisture can make
its way into the lock, which contains electrical components.
PACKING MATERIAL
Please sort waste materials in accordance with local guidelines.
DISPOSAL
• When the machine has reached the end of its service life and
is to be disposed of, it should immediately be made unusable.
Pull out the power cable and cut it as short as possible.
• The dishwasher is manufactured and labeled for recycling.
• Contact your municipality for information about where and
how your dishwasher can be recycled correctly.
CHILD SAFETY
TIP!
Dishwasher detergents and rinse aids are corrosive, so always
keep them out of reach of children.

BEFORE WASHING FOR THE FIRST
TIME
WATER SUPPLY
The machine can be connected to either a hot (max. 160 °F, 70
°C) or cold water supply. We recommend a cold water supply.
The water pressure should be 4.2-140 psi. See also the section
Economic dishwashing in the chapter Loading the dishwasher.
PROGRAM KEY
Some dishwashers include program keys in different languages.
Attach the program key in the appropriate language to the top of
the door.
REFILL RINSE AID INDICATOR
When the rinse aid needs topping up, the above symbol lights on
the display.
NOTE!
After topping up, it may take a while before the symbol goes
out.
CHECKING WATER HARDNESS
Contact the local water utility to check the water hardness in your
area. This is important to determine how much detergent and
rinse aid to use.
TOP UP WITH RINSE AID
Drying is faster if you use rinse aid.
1 Open the rinse aid compartment lid.
2 Carefully top up with rinse aid. Only add rinse aid to the level
marked max.
3 Wipe up any spilled rinse aid around the compartment.
4 Close the lid firmly.
SELECTING THE RINSE AID DOSAGE
The rinse aid dispenser can be adjusted between
(High dosage).
(Off) and
Increase the rinse aid dosage:
• If the dishes have water marks.
Reduce the rinse aid dosage:
• If the dishes have a sticky white/blue film.
• If the dishes are streaked.
• Heavy foaming. If you have very soft water, the rinse aid can
be diluted 50:50 with water.
SETTING THE RINSE AID DOSAGE
The section Settings describes how to set the rinse aid dosage.

LOADING THE DISHWASHER
ECONOMIC DISHWASHING
Run programs only with a full load
Wait until the dishwasher is fully loaded before running a program,
this way you save energy. Use the Rinse & Hold program to rinse
the dishes if there are any unpleasant odors while you wait for the
dishwasher to become fully loaded.
Run programs at a lower temperature
If the dishes are only lightly soiled, you can select a lower
temperature with certain programs. See also the section Selecting
Options in the chapter Using the dishwasher.
Select a program with Short dry
To save energy, use Short dry. The drying result will be better if,
once the program is finished, you leave the door slightly open.
Wood
Wooden items should only be washed in a dishwasher if marked
dishwasher safe.
Aluminum
Aluminum can lose its shine if washed in a dishwasher. However,
good quality aluminum pans can be washed in a dishwasher, even
if some of the shine will be lost.
Plastic items
Avoid washing plastic items that cannot withstand high
temperatures.
TYPICAL LOAD FOR 10 PLACE SETTINGS
Do not rinse under running water
Simply scrape off large food particles before loading the
dishwasher.
Choose a green detergent
Read the environmental declaration on the packaging!
Connect to cold water...
If you use oil or electricity to heat your home.
Connect to hot water (max. 160 °F (70 °C))...
If you use district heating, solar power, or geothermal power to
heat your home. Choosing a hot water connection cuts program
times and reduces the dishwasher's electricity consumption.
FRAGILE DISHES
Some cookware is not dishwasher safe. This can be for several
reasons. Some materials cannot withstand high temperatures,
others can be damaged by dishwasher detergent.
Upper basket with 10 place settings AHAM DW-1
Fragile decoration
Porcelain with decoration on top of the glazing (the items feel
rough) should not be washed in a dishwasher.
Crystal/Glass
Position items so that they do not touch each other during the
wash. Use the lowest possible wash temperature and the shortest
possible program. Select Short dry. Antique and very fragile items
should not be washed in a dishwasher.
Glass washed in a dishwasher at high temperatures can gradually
develop a gray film that cannot be removed. Wash fragile glasses
at a low temperature and with a small amount of detergent.
Silver
Silver and stainless steel items should not come into contact, as
the silver can become discolored.
Cutlery with glued handles
Some types of glue are not dishwasher safe. In such cases, the
handles may loosen.
Lower basket with 10 place settings AHAM DW-1
UPPER BASKET
Place glasses, cups, bowls, side plates, and saucers in the upper
basket. Wine glasses are placed on the wine glass shelf and knives
are placed in the knife stand on the right (if equipped).

1 Prewash detergent compartment
WARNING!
2 Main wash detergent compartment
We recommend that you use only unscented, granular automatic
dishwashing detergent. Using the wrong detergent could cause
flooding and/or damage your dishwasher. Do not use detergent
that has been wet and is clumped. Also, check the expiration date
on the container.
The amount of detergent needed can vary due to differences in
water hardness. To determine the water hardness in your area,
contact your local water utility or area water softening company.
The harder the water, the more detergent you may need. Refer
to the chart below for the recommended detergent amounts
based on water hardness. Remember, you should adjust the
amount of detergent you use by small amounts until you find the
correct amount. Twelve grains and higher is extremely hard water
and detergent alone may not be enough. You may need to use a
water softener to maximize the performance of your dishwasher.
Also, in areas with hard water (9+) you may need to wash at lower
temperatures to prevent hard water deposits from forming in
tank and wash system. In hard water areas, both the dishes and
the machine can develop a white or gray film after a while. If this
happens, run the Heavy wash program with high temperature and
two tablespoons of citric acid or commercially available dishwasher
cleaner in the detergent compartment (with no dishes in the
machine).
Children must be supervised – dishwasher detergent is corrosive!
NOTE!
Use only dishwasher detergent! Liquid hand-washing detergent
must not be used as the foam that forms prevents the
dishwasher from operating effectively.
Dishwasher tablets
Halve the tablet if it is difficult to close the dispenser lid. There is
a risk that the detergent will not be released properly if the lid is
tight and cannot open correctly.
NOTE!
Dishwasher tablets are not recommended for short programs
(less than 75 minutes). Use powder or liquid dishwasher
detergent instead.
3-in-1/All-in-one detergent
Read through the directions for these products carefully. If anything
is unclear, contact the detergent manufacturer.
PROGRAM SELECTION
Press the Program selector one or more times until the desired
program symbol appears on the display.
NOTE!
We recommend that you do not add prewash detergent for
the programs Quick wash or Super Quick wash.
NOTE!
If you use a dishwashing detergent with a rinse aid additive, you
should not fill the rinse aid dispenser. This could cause a film on
your dishes.
Heavy wash
Program for very dirty dishes, such as pans, casserole dishes, and
oven dishes. If these dishes do not completely fill the dishwasher,
you can add plates and other dishes that can withstand a Heavy
wash to fill out the load.
Normal wash
Use to wash normally soiled dishes, and even dishes with dried
leftovers, such as plates, serving dishes, cups, glasses, and so on.
Customer Care Center 1-800-898-1879
www.askousa.com

You can vary the temperature as shown below:
Daily wash
A program suitable for day-to-day dishwashing. This program can
also clean dried leftovers, but is not intended for burnt food, such
as on oven dishes.
Quick wash
This program is used for glasses and porcelain that is lightly soiled,
such as coffee cups.
Super Quick wash
Short program lasting about 15 minutes with acceptable results
for very lightly soiled dishes.
Delicate wash
If the dishes are only lightly soiled, you can select Delicate wash.
This program is intended for glasses and porcelain that have just
been used and as such do not require such a powerful program.
This program can be used for fragile dishes. Select Short dry if you
want to be especially cautious. See also the section Fragile dishes
in the chapter Loading the dishwasher.
Eco wash
Use when you want to save energy. For normally soiled dishes.
Rinse & Dry
This program consists of a rinse with heating and drying. This is a
suitable program if, for example, you plan to make jam and want
to rinse and heat clean glass jars.
Rinse & Hold
Use to rinse dishes while you wait for the dishwasher to become
fully loaded.
SELECTING OPTIONS
To select an option, press one of the option buttons. The field
under the button lights when the option is activated. The available
options depend on the selected program. Once you have started
the program, the options you selected are saved for the next time
you use the same program.
Heavy wash:
140 °F (60 °C) / 160 °F (70 °C)
Normal wash:
130 °F (55 °C) / 150 °F (65 °C)
Daily wash:
140 °F (60 °C)/150 °F (65 °C)
Quick wash:
85 °F (30 °C) / 140 °F (60 °C)
Super Quick wash: 85 °F (30 °C) / 140 °F (60 °C)
Delicate wash:
105 °F (40 °C) / 120 °F (50 °C)
Eco wash:
120 °F (50 °C) / 140 °F (60 °C)
Long dry
A higher temperature in the final rinse and a longer drying phase
improves the drying result if you activate the Long dry option. This
causes a slight increase in energy consumption. This option can be
used with all programs except Rinse & Dry, and Rinse & Hold.
If you want a program with Short dry, press again so that the field
under the button turns off.
START THE DISHWASHER
Press and hold Start/Stop until the display shows
(the door
open symbol). This indicates that the dishwasher is ready to start.
Close the door properly, otherwise the dishwasher will not start.
NOTE!
If the machine does not start within 2 minutes of the last button
press, the display returns to showing the last program run.
TIME REMAINING
Once you have selected a program and options, the display
indicates how long the program took the last time it was used. The
remaining time is updated after the water for the final rinse has
been heated.
This may differ somewhat from time to time depending on the
temperature of the water supply, the amount of dishes, the
ambient temperature, and other factors.
NOTE!
During the first run of each program, the remaining time
displayed can be slightly misleading, as the dishwasher is estimating
the time. When you run the program a second time, the
dishwasher will calculate the remaining time based on the
previous duration of the program.
STOPPING OR CHANGING A PROGRAM
High temperature
Activate this option for improved dishwashing results. The machine
then uses a higher temperature for the main wash.
If you want to change programs after starting the dishwasher, open
the door then press and hold Start/Stop for three seconds. Add
more detergent if the lid of the detergent dispenser has opened.
Then choose a new program, press Start/Stop, and close the door.
If you want to use the lower temperature, press again so that the
field under the button turns off.
