Control Settings

The Status
The Status display tells you what is happening while the dishwasher is in operation and also any malfunctions if they occur (see page 6).
The lights will come ON indicating the sequence of operation the dishwasher is in.
SENSING Displayed during periods using CleanSensor technology to measure the amount of soil in the load and decide if another prewash is needed.
The SENSING light is displayed only during NORMAL and POTS & PANS cycles.
WASHING Displayed during prewash and main wash periods.
RINSING Displayed during rinse periods.
SANITIZED Displayed when cycle has met sanitization conditions. Light remains ON until door is opened.
Load Selections
The light above the selected pad will be ON to indicate which LOAD SELECTION has been selected.
SANI WASH This cycle raises the water temperature in the final rinse to sanitize your dishware. The cycle length will vary depending on the temperature
of your inlet water.
NOTE: The SaniWash cycle is monitored for sanitization requirements. If the cycle is interrupted during or after the main wash portion or
if the incoming water temperature is so low that adequate water heating cannot be achieved, the sanitizing conditions will not be met.
In these cases, the sanitized light will not illuminate at the end of the cycle.
NOTE: Only the SaniWash cycle has been designated to meet the requirements of NSF184 for soil removal and sanitization efficiency.
Certified residential dishwashers are not intended for licensed food establishments.
POTS & PANS For heavily soiled dishes or cookware with dried-on or baked-on soils. Everyday dishes may be included. This cycle will not remove
burned-on foods.
NORMAL For loads of everyday dishes, glasses and cookware with medium soils. NOTE: Many dishes have lighter soil than normal. Choosing a
cycle other than NORMAL will save energy and water.
SPEED WASH/ For dishes with light soils.
CHINA CRYSTAL For lightly soiled china and crystal.
RINSE ONLY For rinsing partial loads that will be washed later. Do not use detergent.
The light above the selected pad will be ON to indicate which OPTION has been selected.
POWER For use with heavily soiled and/or dried-on, baked-on soils. This option MUST be selected PRIOR to starting the cycle.
PRESOAK This option adds 16 minutes to the cycle time.
SPEED DRY/ Shuts off the drying heat option. Dishes air dry naturally and energy is saved. You can prop the door open after the CLEAN light
HEATED DRY illuminates.
SPEED DRY/ Turns the heater on for fast drying. This cycle will extend the time to your wash cycle by 23 minutes for the NORMAL cycle and
HEATED DRY 30 minutes for the SANI WASH cycle. NOTE: Cannot be selected with RINSE ONLY cycle.
LOCK When the LOCK pad is touched twice within 3 seconds, all pads become inoperative. You can lock the controls to prevent any selections
from being made. Or you can lock the controls after you have started a cycle or selected DELAY START so the cycle or DELAY START
is not interrupted.
Children cannot accidentally start dishwasher by touching pads with this option selected.
To unlock the dishwasher after it has been locked, touch the LOCK pad twice within 3 seconds. The light above the LOCK pad
will turn off.
DELAY START You can delay the start of a wash cycle for up to 8 hours. Press the DELAY START pad to choose the number of hours you want to
delay the start of the cycle. The machine will count down and start automatically at the correct time. Pressing the START/RESET
button will cancel the DELAY START selection. NOTE: If you forget to latch the door, a reminder signal will beep until you do so.
RESET To change a cycle after washing starts, touch the START/RESET pad to cancel the cycle. After water is pumped out and the motor
stops, you can reprogram and restart the dishwasher. This will take approximately 90 seconds.
Close and latch the door. Touch the START/RESET pad to begin the cycle. Water fill begins, and approximately 40 seconds later
the wash action begins.
NOTE: The dishwasher remembers your last cycle so you don't have to reprogram each time. When the dishwasher is loaded and
the door latch is in the locked position, the control panel lights will be ON and display the last settings you selected.
If you don't want to change any of the settings, simply touch the START/RESET pad to begin the cycle.
Also, if a power failure occurs, NORMAL and SPEED DRY/HEATED DRY will automatically be programmed. Make any new selections
and touch the START/RESET pad to begin the cycle.
This light is illuminated when a wash cycle is complete. The light will stay ON until the door is opened.
