Cleaning the Exterior Door Panel
Before cleaning the front panel, make sure you know
what type of panel you have. Referto the last two
letters of your model number. You can locate your
model number on the left-hand tub wall just inside the
door. If your model number ends with BB,CC,WW,
SA or BG,then you have a painted door panel. If your
model number ends with SS,then you have a Stainless
Steel Door panel. If your model number ends with CS,
then you have a CleanSteelpanel.
Follow the instructions below for cleaning the door
panel for your specific model.
Painted Door Panel (model numbers ending in BB-
black, CC-bisque, WW-white, SA-silver metallic or BG-
graphite black)
Use a clean, soft, lightly dampened cloth, then dry
thoroughly. You may also use a good appliance wax
or polish.
Stainless Steel Door Panel (model numbers ending in
SS)
The stainless steel panels can be cleaned with
Stainless Steel Magic or a similar product using a clean,
soft cloth. Do not use appliance wax, polish, bleach or
products containing chlorine on Stainless Steel doors.

an Air Gap?

backing up into it if a drain clogs.The air gap is not
a part of the dishwasher. It is not covered by your
warranty. Not all plumbing codes require air gaps,
so you may not have one.
The air gup is easy to clean.
