We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and
obey all safety messages.
This is the safety alert symbol.
This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others.
All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word "WARNING" or
"CAUTION." These words mean:
All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury,
and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed.
When using the dishwasher, follow basic precautions, including the following:
■ Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.
■ Use the dishwasher only for its intended function.
■ Use only detergents or rinse agents recommended
for use in a dishwasher, and keep them out of the
reach of children.
■ When loading items to be washed:
1) Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to
damage the door seal; and
2) Load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce
the risk of cuts.
■ Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked
"dishwasher safe" or the equivalent. For plastic
items not so marked, check the manufacturer's
■ Do not touch the heating element during or
immediately after use.
■ Do not operate the dishwasher unless all enclosure
panels are properly in place.


Your safety and the safety of others are very important.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't
follow instructions.
Failure to follow instructions may result in minor
or moderate injury or product damage.
■ Do not tamper with controls.
■ Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door, lid, or
dish racks of the dishwasher.
■ To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to
play in or on the dishwasher.
■ Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be
produced in a hot water system that has not been
used for two weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS
IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not
been used for such a period, before using the
dishwasher turn on all hot water faucets and let the
water flow from each for several minutes. This will
release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas
is flammable, do not smoke or use an open flame
during this time.
■ Remove the door or lid to the washing compartment
when removing an old dishwasher from service or
discarding it.
