DETERGENT REMAINS IN THE

DISHWASHER NOT DRYING
WILL NOT FILL
WATER REMAINS IN THE TUB/

NOTE"
It is normal
for the dishwasher
to repeatedly
pause several
times during
a cycle.
If the Start/Resume
light is blinking,
push START/RESUME
and close the door
within
3 seconds.
Be sure the door
is closed
and latched.
Check that there
is not an interference
with
large
casserole
dishes
and the wash
system
at the
back of the dishwasher.
Adjust
loading
as necessary
to ensure door
is closed
and latched.
Be sure you have selected
a cycle.
(See "Cycles
and Options
Information.")
Be sure there
is power
to the dishwasher.
A circuit
breaker
or fuse may have tripped.
If lights other
than
Start/Resume
blink and the unit will not run, you will need
to call for service.
Check for dishware
such as cookie
sheets, cutting
boards,
or large
containers,
etc., that may
be
blocking
the detergent
dispenser
from
opening
properly.
Be sure your
detergent
is fresh
and lump
free.
Be sure the cycle
has completed
(blue light is on). If it has not completed,
you will need to resume
the cycle
by pressing
START/RESUME
and closing
the door
within
3 seconds.
NOTES:
To use less water
and reduce
energy
consumption
you will encounter
cycles
that typically
run
for up to 3 hours.
A water
heater
setting
of 120°F (49°C)
is best. The dishwasher
will delay
longer
while
heating
cooler
water.
Some options
will add time to the cycle.
(See "Cycles
and Options
Information"
section.)
The
SmartDry
TM
or Heated
Dry option
adds
1/2 hour.
Try the 1 Hour Wash
cycle.
Run the hot water
at a faucet
close to the dishwasher
before
selecting
and starting
the cycle.
NOTE:
Plastic
and items with
nonstick
surfaces
are difficult
to dry because
they
have a porous
surface
which
tends
to collect
water
droplets.
Towel drying
may
be necessary.
Use of rinse aid along
with
the SmartDry
TM
or Heated
Dry option
is needed
for proper
drying.
Proper
loading
of items can affect
drying.
(See specific
loading
instructions
within
this guide.)
Glasses
and cups with
concave
bottoms
hold water.
This water
may
spill onto
other
items when
unloading.
Unload
the bottom
rack first.
Locate
these items on the more slanted
side of the rack
for improved
results.
Be sure the water
is turned
on to the dishwasher.
Check that the float
is free
from obstructions.
(See "Parts
and Features.")
Check for suds in the dishwasher.
If foam
or suds are detected,
the dishwasher
may not operate
properly
or may
not fill with
water.
Be sure the cycle
has completed
(the blue light is on). If it has not, you will need to resume
the
cycle
by pressing
START/RESUME
and closing
the door
within
3 seconds.
If dishwasher
is connected
to a food
waste
disposer,
be sure the knockout
plug
has been
removed
from
the disposer
inlet.
Check for kinks in the drain
hose.
Check for food
obstructions
in the drain
or disposer.
Check your
house fuse or circuit
breaker.
