Burn Hazard

Allow heating element to cool before cleaning the interior.

Failure to do so can result in burns.

Outer Door - Clean outer door with warm soapy water and a dishcloth or sponge.

Rinse with clean water and a dry cloth.

Do not use harsh cleaners.Inside - The inside of the dishwasher and filter are self-cleaning with normal use. If needed, clean around the tub gasket area with a damp cloth. The filter is self-cleaning. A glass trap located in the center of the filter is designed to collect pieces of broken glass, straws, bones and pits.

Overfill Protector keeps dishwasher from overfilling and is located in the left front corner of the tub.

• Clean occasionally with household cleaner containing vinegar or bleach to dissolve any buildup.

• Overfill Protector should move up and down freely about one inch.

If it does not move, lift and clean underneath.

Cleaning the Interior

Use Frigidaire ReadyClean ® Dishwasher

Cleaner Tablets (Item # 10FFPRDT01) to clean and freshen the interior of the dishwasher. Place one tablet in the bottom of the empty dishwasher tub (not the dispenser), run a rinse cycle, leave washer door closed for at least 6 hours, then resume normal use. One tablet used monthly is recommended for best results.


Care of Drain Air Gap

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 countertop and can be inspected by removing the cover. This is not part of your dishwasher and is not covered by warranty.


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 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 both detergent cups and run dishwasher through a HEAVY WASH cycle.

4. Check connections to make sure they do not leak.


See Installation Instructions for more details on disconnecting and restoring service to your dishwasher.
