Removing the Wood Top
Remove the two mounting
screws
as shown and pull the top toward you
to remove it from the dishwasher.

use a scissor to cut the bag from the
under side. Then reinstall the top
taking care to engage the rear
brackets as shown.
DO NOT operate the dishwasher
without the wood top in place.
Care of the wood top
Before using, wipe well with a
dry cloth to remove surface dust.
Saturate a clean cloth with mineral
oil and polish all exposed wood
surfaces until they gleam. Allow
wood top to stand overnight to absorb
the oil and repeat the treatment the
next day• Allow to stand for 4 to 6
hours and wipe off excess oil with a
soft, dry cloth.
Wood tops should not be used as
a place for thawing frozen foods,
even when protected
by a sheet of
aluminum
foil. Never let water
stand on the wood top•
To remove water stains, rub with
a cloth saturated with non-toxic
mineral oil (available at most
drugstores).
Should your top become too
stained, dirty or cut, sand with
#000(150) or #0000(220)
sandpaper
and then wipe with a cloth saturated
with non-toxic
mineral oil•
