What To do
• Each pad must be touched within 30 seconds of the others.
To relight, touch any pad again, or unlock and relatch door.
• A small amount of clean water around the outlet on the tub
bottom at the back of the tub keeps the water seal lubricated.
• If you have an air gap, clean it. See page 18.
• If the dishwasher drains into a disposer, run disposer clear.
• Check to see if your kitchen sink is draining well. If not, you
may need a plumber.
• Warm, moist air comes through the vent by the door latch during drying
and when water is being pumped out. This is necessary for drying.
• Do not interrupt the cycle anytime during or after main wash.
• Raise the water heater temperature to between 120°F and 140°F.
• These are all normal. No action is required.
