Dishwasher Features Your dishwasher cleans by spraying a mixture of hot water and detergent through the spray arms against soiled surfaces. Each cycle begins with a pre-drain. Next, the dishwasher fills with water covering the filter area. Water is then pumped through the filter and spray arms. Soil particles go down the drain as the water is pumped out and replaced with clean water.
6. Select desired OPTIONS (See Energy Options). The indicator light above the pad will glow when selected. 7. Run hot water faucet nearest dishwasher until water is hot. Turn water off. 8. To start, press START/CANCEL pad. Note: The dishwasher is programmed to remember your last cycle so you do not have to reset each time.
Operating Instructions On some models, the Smart Sensor checks the soil level on your dishes in the Pots Pan, Normal and Light Wash (Both Racks) cycles. Depending on soil level, the sensor will determine if additional water fills are needed to clean the dishes or if water fills can be deleted. Cycle time and water usage will vary based on the amount of soil on the dishes.
Operating Instructions Options Selections Hi-Temp Wash When HI-TEMP WASH option is selected, the dishwasher heats water in the main wash to approximately 140°F (60°C).

When the SANITIZE option is selected, the SANITIZED light will glow when the SANITIZE cycle is finished. If the dishwasher did not properly sanitize the dishes, the light will not come on. This can happen if the cycle is interrupted. The light will remain on until the door is opened.
Unless the dishwasher is to be operated at once, it is best to rinse off these food soils. • Load racks so that large items do not prevent the detergent dispenser from opening.

• Unlatch door and wait a few seconds until wash action stops before opening. • Add the item and wait a few seconds to allow cold air to slowly expand inside dishwasher. • Close door firmly to latch and resume cycle.
As a rule, use 1 teaspoon for each grain above 12. Unlatch the door, open slowly and add detergent to the bottom of the tub. Close the door to latch and the dishwasher will continue through the cycle.
Adjustable setting Dispenser Cap (continued) Water Pressure The hot water line to dishwasher must provide water pressure between 20 and 120 psi. Low water pressure may occur when laundry or showers are in operation. Wait until water use is reduced before starting dishwasher.
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.
Before calling for service, review this list. It may save you both time and expense. This list includes common experiences that are not the result of defective workmanship or material in your dishwasher. Food Soils Left on Dishes • Choose another cycle for longer washing time.
This is normal since each spray arm has its own sound. • It is normal for dishwasher to pause (no sound) when the wash action is switching between the lower and middle spray arms.
To customize your dishwasher to match your cabinets: • You will need a trim kit. • See Step 10 of Installation Instructions that came with your dishwasher for more information. Removing Spots and Film Hard water can cause lime deposit buildup on the interior of the dishwasher.
