Loading the dishwasher racks.
For best dishwashing results, follow these loading guidelines. Features and appearance of racks and silverware baskets
may vary from your model
Upper Rack
Although
the upper rack is for glasses, cups and saucers, pots and pans can
be placed in this rack for eft>ctive cleaning. Gups and glasses fit best along
the sides. This is also a secure place for dishwasher-safe
plastics.
The cup shelf (on some models) may be placed in the up or down position
to add flexibility.
The upper rack is good for all kinds of odd-shaped
utensils. Saucepans,
mixing bowls and other items should be placed face down.

The Wash Tower
Keepthe centerareaclear in the lower rack.
The wash tower rises through
the center of the lower rack during the
wash and rinse portions
of the cycle. The wash tower shoots water into the
midqevel wash arm located
under the upper rack. Blocking the wash tower
could result in poor wash performance
for items in the upper rack.
Don'tblock or load tall thingsnext to the WashTower.
Lower Rack
Whenloadingthe lower rack,do not load largeplatters or traysin the front right corner.
They mayprevent detergentfrom circulatingduring the washcycle.
The lower rack is best used for plates, saucers and cookware. Large items
such as broiler pans and racks should go along the rightqmnd
side. Load
platters, pots and bowls along the sides, in corners, or in the back. The
soiled side of items should face the center of the rack. If necessary, oversized
glasses and mugs can be placed in the lower rack to maximize
loading
flexibility.
Also, be careful
not to let a portion
of an item such as a pot or dish handle
extend
through
the bottom
rack. This could
block
the wash arm
and result
in poor wash
performance.
Fold-down
fingers (on some models)
provide flexibility for extra-large
and
hard-to-fit items. The fingers may be left in the up position or folded down
to customize
the lower rack.
