POSSIBLE CAUSE AND REMEDY
Spotting
can be caused by all these things:
Extremely hard water. (See page 6.)
Low inlet water temperature. (To test,
see page 6.)
Overloading the dishwasher.
Improper loading. (See pages 8 and 9.)
Local water conditions and personal preferences vary. Try several brands of detergents
to find one that gives the best results for you. A liquid dishwasher detergent may
reduce filming.
To
remove stubborn spots and film from glassware:
1, Remove all metal utensils from the dishwasher.
2.
Do not add detergent.
3. Select POTSCRUBBER cycle.
4. Start the dishwasher and allow to run for 18 to 22 minutes. The dishwasher will now
be in the main
wash.
5. Then open the door and pour 2 cups (500 ml) of white vinegar into the bottom of the
dishwasher.
6. Close the door and allow to complete the cycle.
If vinegar rinse doesn't
acid crystals instead of vinegar. (Most drugstores carry citric ticid crystals. If yours
doesn't, call GE Factory Service.)
Using a vinegar or citric acid crystal rinse more than twice a month'? Consider a home
water softener.
Rough handling can cause chipping. Load with care. Make sure glassware and china are
secure and can't jar loose. (See page 8 for correct way to load glassware. ) Make sure tall
glasses and stemware will clear the top of the tub when you push the rack into the
dishwasher.
Always use the top rack for delicate items.
Water around the outlet on the tub bottom at the back of the tub is normal. It is clean
water. It's there to keep the water seal lubricated.
DISHWASHER DETERGENTS TO AVOID SUDSING.
remove suds from the tub: Open the dishwasher. Let suds evaporate. Add I gallon
of cold water to the tub. Close and latch the dishwasher. Pump out water by slowly
turning the control dial until a drain period is reached. Repeat if necessary.
Suds can cause unit to overflow. That's why it's so important to use a detergent that's
designed for automatic dishwashers.
Spilling the rinse agent can cause foam during washing. This can lead to overflowing.
Wipe up accidental spill of rinse agent with a damp cloth.
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, and the garbage disposer clear.
Old or damp powder detergent.
Phosphate level in deterEent too low.
(See see page 6.)
Rinse agent dispenser empty. (See page 6,)
Too little detergent. (See page 7.)
work: Repeat as above, except use 1/4 cup (60 ml) of citric
