PROBLEM
SOLUTION
HARD WATER
(WHITE RESIDUE ON
DISHWASHER iNTERIOR OR
GLASSWARE)
ODORS
NOISY
NOTE:
Extremely
hard water
mineral
deposits
can cause damage
to your
dishwasher
and make
it difficult
to achieve
good
cleaning.
You may
bring
water
samples
to Sears to check
your water
hardness
level. A water
softener
is strongly
recommended
if your
hardness
is 15 grains
or more. If
a water
softener
is not installed,
the following
steps may
help:
Use a cleaner
designed
for dishwashers
once
per month.
See the "Dishwasher
Maintenance
Procedure"
section.
Clean
the ULTRACLEAN
TM
filters
at least once
per month.
Always
use a rinse aid.
Always
use a high-quality,
fresh
detergent.
Use a detergent
booster/water
softener
additive
designed
for dishwashers.
NOTE:
If the dishwasher
is not used daily,
you can run a rinse cycle
with
the partial
load
daily
until a full load
is ready
to run, or use the Top Rack Only
option
(on some models)
for partial
loads.
Run a vinegar rinse through the dishwasher by putting 2 cups (500 mL) of white vinegar in an
upright glass measuring cup in the lower rack. Run a normal cycle with the SmartDry
TM
or
Heated Dry option turned off. Do not use detergent.
The dishwasher may not be draining
properly, see "WATER REMAINS IN THE TUB/WILL
NOT
DRAIN" in "Troubleshooting."
NOTES:
Surging
sounds
can occur
periodically
throughout
the cycle
while
the dishwasher
is draining.
Normal
water
valve
hissing may
be heard
periodically.
A normal
snap sound
may
be heard
when the detergent
dispenser
opens during
the cycle
and when the door
is opened
at the end of the cycle.
Improper
installation
will affect
noise levels.
Be sure the filters
are properly
installed.
A thumping
sound may
be heard
if items extend
beyond
the racks and interfere
with
the wash
arms.
Readjust
the dishware
and resume
the cycle.
FOOD SOILS REMAIN
ON DISHES
Be sure the dishwasher
is loaded
correctly.
Improper
loading
can greatly
decrease
the washing
performance
(see "Loading
for Best Performance").
Check filter
to ensure
it is properly
installed.
Clean
it if needed.
(See "Cleaning
Instructions"
in
"ULTRACLEAN
TM
Filtration
System"
for details.)
Select
the proper
cycle
and option
for the type
of soils. The Pots Pans cycle
with
the TurboZone
®
(on some models)
option
can be used for tougher
loads.
Be sure the incoming
water
temperature
is at least 120°F (49°C).
Use the proper
amount
of fresh
detergent.
More
detergent
is needed
for heavier-soiled
loads
and hard
water
conditions.
Scrape food from dishes prior to loading (do not prerinse).
DID NOT SANITIZE
If the Sani Rinse indicator
light is blinking, the load is NOTsanitized.
The cycle was interrupted
in
the final rinse, or your water heater is set too low. Set your water heater to 120°F (49°C).
DAMAGE TO DISHWARE
Improper loading can cause dishes to become chipped or damaged.
(See specific loading
instructions within this guide.)
BLINKING LIGHTS
If Start/Resume
or any status lights are blinking and the dishwasher will not run, push START/
RESUME and close the door within 3 seconds. If the dishwasher still will not run, call service at
1-800-4-MY-HOME
®.
