Dish Preparation

Scrape away large pieces of food, bones,
pits, toothpicks, etc. The continuously filtered
wash system will remove the 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 rinse off these food soils. If
the dishwasher drains into a food disposer,
be sure disposer is completely empty
before starting dishwasher.

that the front of each plate faces the back of
the plate in front of it, and the open sides of
the plates at the center of the dishwasher face
each other.
When loading dishes, pull the upper basket out
sufficiently so you can load it without striking
the counter.
WARNING
Make sure the loaded dishes do not interfere
with the rotation of the spray arm located at
the bottom of the upper basket. (Check this
by rotating the spray arm by hand.)

Loading the Lower Basket

Features and appearance of racks and
silverware basket as shown may vary
from your model.
Standard 10 place setting for lower basket.
The bottom basket is designed to load plates,
soup bowls, plates, saucers and cookware.
The adjustable basket space will allow
you to load items with a maximum height
of 11 inches.
The fold-down tines in the bottom basket
make it easy to load those extra large and
hard-to-fit items. The tines may be left up
for normal use or folded down for more
flexible loading. Fold down for more space
to load large pots or pans.
Load your plates into the dishwasher in two
half rows, so that the front of each plate faces
the back of the plate in front of it, and the
open sides of the plates at the center of the
dishwasher face each other.
