Preparing & Loading Dishes

NOTE

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

Dish Preparation

Loading the cutlery rack

The Cutlery Rack is designed for flatware and most cooking or serving utensils. Heavily soiled utensils or items with baked on foods should be placed in the upper rack or silverware basket for best washing performance. The separators on the cutlery racks help keep flatware separated to avoid damage and improve cleaning.

Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits, toothpicks, etc. The continuously filtered wash fluid will remove remaining food particles. Burned-on foods should be loosened before loading. Empty liquids from glasses and cups.

Foods such as mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar, lemon juice and tomato based products may cause discoloration of stainless steel and plastics if allowed to sit for a long period of time. Unless the dishwasher is to be operated at once, it is best to pre-rinse or use the rinse only cycle to rinse off these food soils.

Load racks so that large items do not prevent the detergent dispenser from opening.

Check manufacturer’s recommendations before washing items in question.

If the dishwasher drains into a Food Disposer, be sure disposer is completely empty before starting dishwasher.

Loading the Upper Rack

Features and appearance of racks and silverware basket may vary from your model.

The upper rack is designed for flexibility in loading a wide variety of items including cups, glasses, stemware, small plates, bowls, etc.

Load glasses and plastic items in Upper rack only.

Load items with open end facing down for better cleaning and draining.

Damage may occur if delicate items touch each other during dishwasher operation.

Long-handled knives and utensils can be placed in

Upper rack.

Be sure nothing protrudes through the bottom of the rack to block rotation of middle spray arm.

Features and appearance of racks and silverware basket may vary from your model.

The lower rack is best for plates, saucers, bowls, and cookware. Large items should be placed along the edge so they do not block the spray arm rotation. For best results, place bowls, casseroles, and sauce pans with soiled surface facing down or toward the center. Tilt slightly for better drainage.

Make sure tall items do not block spray arm rotation.

Be sure pan handles do not protrude through the bottom of the rack and block the spray arm rotation.
