Run your dishwasher with full loads. Run a rinse cycle after meals until the dishwasher is full. If your home is equipped with a water softener, you may want to avoid starting the dishwasher during the regeneration of the softener, as this may contribute to poor wash performance.

Drying System During drying, you can see steam escaping through the vent at the upper left corner of the door. This is normal as the heat dries your dishes. IMPORTANT: The vapor is hot. Do not touch the vent during drying. Overfill Protection Float The overfill protection float (in the front right corner of the dishwasher tub) keeps the dishwasher from overfilling.
DISHWASHER CARE Cleaning Your Dishwasher Cleaning the exterior In most cases, regular use of a soft, damp cloth or sponge and a mild detergent is all that is necessary to keep the outside of your dishwasher looking nice and clean. Cleaning the interior Hard water minerals can cause a white film to build up on the inside surfaces, especially just beneath the door area.
Dishes are not completely clean Food soil left on the dishes Is the dishwasher loaded correctly? Refer to the “Dishwasher Loading” section. Is the water temperature too low? If needed, turn home water heater up to ensure water entering dishwasher is at least 120°F (49°C).
