Scrape away large pieces of food, bone, pits,
toothpicks, etc. The wash system will remove
remaining food particles. Gently scrape away
burned-on food with a non-scratch utensil or set
dish soak before washing. Empty liquids from
glasses and cups.
Foods containing vegetable oil and/or chemical
additives such as mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar,
lemon juice or tomato-based products may cause
discoloration of stainless steel and plastics if
allowed to sit for a long period of time. Unless the
dishwasher is to be operated at once, it is best to
rinse off these food soils.
Load racks so that large items do not
prevent the detergent dispenser from opening.
Check manufacturer's recommendations
before washing items in question.
If the dishwasher drains into a food
disposal, be sure disposal is
completely empty before starting
