Preparing and Loading Dishes
Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits,
toothpicks, etc. The continuous filtered wash
system will remove 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.
• Load racks so that large items do not prevent
the detergent dispenser from opening.
• Check manufacturer's recommendations before
washing items in question.
• If the dishwasher drains into a food disposer,
be sure disposer is completely empty before
