DRY option in combination
with
rinse aid will give you excellent
drying results.
The
energy to use HOT or HEAT DRY costs pennies
per cycle.
You may turn offthe
HOT or HEAT
DRY option,
however
you will have items in your
dish load that will not be dry at the end of the cycle.
Cool or Air Dry Option
COOL or AIR DRY option saves electricity
since
the heating element
is offduring
the drying portion
of the cycle. To speed drying
process,
open the
door slightly
after the cycle is complete.
Some water droplets
may remain on door and tub
and in areas where
dishes touch silverware
basket
and rack.
With either option,
you may see water vapor
coming from vent during drying
portion
of cycle.

option may be changed
at any time
during the cycle and affects only the drying period.
Water
Heating
Delay
This dishwasher
is equipped
with a thermostat
to
ensure that the water is heated to the proper
temperature
to deliver optional cleaning
and drying
results.
The knob/timer
on the dishwasher
may
pause at approximately
the 7pm position.
The
dishwasher
is not "stuck" here, but is simply
heating
the water to the proper temperature
before
advancing.
If the dishwasher
holds this position on
every cycle, then the incoming
(house)
water
temperature
may be low.
A minimum
water
temperature
of 120F is recommended
to avoid this
water heating delay.
