Stainless Steel Inner Door and Tub
The stainless steel used to make the dishwasher tub and
inner door provides the highest reliability available in a
GE Appliances dishwasher.
Protect Against Freezing
If your dishwasher is left in an unheated place during the
winter, ask a service technician to:
Turn off electrical power to the dishwasher. Remove
fuses or trip circuit breaker.
Turn off the water supply and disconnect the water inlet
line from the water valve.
Drain water from the water inlet line and water valve.
(Use a pan to catch the water.)
Does Your Dishwasher Have an Air Gap?
An air gap protects your dishwasher
against water backing up into it if a drain
clogs. The air gap is not a part of the
dishwasher. It is not covered by your
warranty. Not all plumbing codes require
air gaps, so you may not have one.
Stainless Steel Door Panel
For cleaning rust and tarnish, cleaners with oxalic acid
such as Bar Keepers Friend Soft Cleanser™ will remove
rust, tarnish and small blemishes. Use only a liquid
cleanser free of grit and rub in the direction of the brush
lines with a damp soft sponge. Do not use appliance wax
or polish on the stainless steel.
For other blemishes and marks, use Stainless Steel
Magic or a similar product using a clean soft cloth.
Do not use appliance wax, polish, bleach or products
containing chlorine on Stainless Steel. You can
