cleaning and maintaining your
Keeping your dishwasher clean improves its performance, reduces unnecessary
repairs, and lengthens its life.
clEanIng thE ExtErIor
It's best to clean spills on the outside of your dishwasher as they occur. Use a soft damp cloth on the
control panel to gently wipe away spills and dust. Do not use benzene, wax, thinner, chlorine bleach, or
alcohol. These materials may discolor the inner walls and may cause stains. Do not clean the dishwasher by
sprinkling water over it and avoid letting water come into contact with any of the electrical parts.
If your dishwasher has a stainless steel door panel, it can be cleaned with a stainless steel cleaner for
Home Appliances or similar product using a clean and soft cloth.
clEanIng thE IntErIor
Clean the interior of your dishwasher periodically to remove any dirt or food particles. Wipe the inside of
the dishwasher and the inner part of the door with a wet dishcloth. We recommend filling the detergent
dispenser with dish detergent, and then running the dishwasher empty periodically using either the Normal
or Quick cycle with the sanitize option. This will keep your dishwasher clean.
If white spots and odor are still present in your dishwasher, run the Normal cycle with the dishwasher empty
and without detergent until it flushes. Then, interrupt the cycle and put an 8 ounce cup of white vinegar into
the lower basket. Close the dishwasher and let the cycle finish.
Do not remove the Seal tub front (the long rubber seal enclosing the opening of the dishwasher).
clEanIng thE nozzlES
If the cleaning performance of your dishwasher is continually low or the nozzles seem clogged, you can
clean each of the nozzles. When removing the nozzles, take care as they may break.
1. Check whether the nozzle holes are clogged by food particles.
2. If cleaning is needed, remove the nozzle by
pulling it upwards.
3. Clean the nozzle and push it back into
4. Check whether the nozzle is engaged
correctly by rotating it by hand.
