Preparing and Loading Dishes
Loading the Silverware Basket
Load sharp items (knives, skewers, etc.)
Failure to do so may result in injury.
Features and appearance of racks and silverware
basket may vary from your model.
Load the silverware basket while it is in the bottom
rack or take the basket out for loading on a
counter or table.
Place small items like baby bottle caps, jar lids,
corn cob holders, etc., in a covered section. Close
the cover to hold small items in place.
Use suggested loading patterns, as shown, to
increase washability of your silverware.
Be sure nothing protrudes through bottom of
basket or rack to block the spray arm.
Do not mix silver and stainless to avoid damaging
the silver finish.
The silverware basket can be separated and
placed in several locations in the bottom rack.
Load silverware in all sections or just one,
depending on your load.
When covers are up, mix items in each section of
the basket with some pointing up and some down
to avoid nesting. Water spray cannot reach nested
