HOW YOUR DISHWASHER CLEANS
Your dishwasher cleans by spraying a mixture of hot water and
detergent through the spray arms against soiled surfaces.
The dishwasher fills with water, covering the filter area. Water
is then pumped through the multiple filter system and spray
arms. Separated soil particles go down the drain as the water is
pumped out and replaced with clean water.
The number of water fills will vary with the cycle being used.
Load dishwasher. (See preparing and loading dishes.)
Add detergent. (See fill detergent dispenser.)
Add rinse aid if needed. (See fill rinse aid dispenser.)
Select desired CYCLE. (See cycle chart.) The indicator light
above the pad will turn on when selected.
Select desired OPTIONS. The indicator light above the pad
will glow when selected.
To start, press the START/CANCEL pad.
Close the door within 4 seconds to begin the cycle.
Your dishwasher has the top control panel.
Your selections will only be activated when the door is firmly
The dishwasher is programmed to remember your last cycle
so you do not have to reset each time. To start the dishwasher
using the same cycle and options selected on the previous wash,
simply press the START/CANCEL pad.
Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits, toothpicks, etc. The
continuous 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. If
not operating the dishwasher immediately, it is best to rinse off
dishes soiled with these types of foods.
If the dishwasher drains into a food disposer, be sure disposer
is completely empty before starting dishwasher.
LOADING THE UPPER RACK
The Upper Rack is designed for cups, glasses, small plates, bowls
and plastic items marked dishwasher safe.
For best results, place bowls, cups, glasses and sauce pans with
soiled surfaces facing down or toward the center. Tilt slightly
for better drainage.
Make sure the loaded dishes do not interfere with the
rotation of the upper spray arm that is located at the
bottom of the Upper Rack. (Check this by rotating the
upper spray arm by hand.)

LOADING THE LOWER RACK
The Lower Rack is designed to load plates, soup bowls, saucers
and cookware. The elevated Upper Rack space will allow you
to load dishes that are a maximum of 13" in height.
Large items should be placed along the edge so they
do not interfere with the upper spray arm rotation or
prevent the detergent dispenser from opening. Large
items should be turned over so that the inside faces
downward so they do not interfere with the lower
spray arm rotation.
