Hot water dissolves and activates the dishwashing
detergent. Hot water also dissolves grease on dishes and helps glasses dry spot-
free. For best dishwashing results, water should be 120°F (49°C) as it enters the dishwasher. Loads may not wash as well if the water
temperature is too low. Water that is too hot can make some soils harder to remove and cause certain detergent ingredients not to
function. If your water heater is located far from the dishwasher, it may be necessary to run the hot water at the faucet closest to the
dishwasher to minimize the amount of cold water in the water line.
To check water temperature
Additional efficiency tips
1. Run hot water at the faucet closest to your dishwasher for at
least 1 minute.
2. Place a candy or meat thermometer
in a glass measuring
cup.
3.
\
Check the temperature
on the thermometer
as the water is
running into the cup.
To save water, energy and time, do not rinse dishes before
putting them into the dishwasher.
Use a delay feature to run your dishwasher during off-peak
hours. Local utilities recommend avoiding heavy usage of
energy at certain times of day.
During the summer, run your dishwasher at night. This
reduces daytime heat buildup in the kitchen.
Use a rinse aid to improve drying.
Use cycles or options that add extra heat to the wash or rinse
portion of the cycle only when needed.
If your home is equipped with a water softener, you may want
to avoid starting the dishwasher during the regeneration of
the softener, since this may contribute to poor wash
performance.
Press the desired cycle. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the
desired cycle. If the door is latched, you will hear the cycles start
and stop as the Cycle Control knob passes each cycle mark. This
is normal and does not hurt the dishwasher. If you prefer, you can
set the Cycle Control knob with the door unlatched.
A "Q" shows what steps are in each cycle.
Water usage is shown in U.S. gallons/liters.
Cycle time includes dry time.
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob pauses while water is being
heated.
