Water Use
Wash Cycles
NORMAL WASH 1 2 . 1 5 9
LIGHT WASH 1 0 . 3 5 3
Drying Options:
HEATED DRYING. Available on all wash cycles except RINSE & HOLD. Add 24 minutes to wash cycle time.
ENERGY SAVER (No Heat Boost). Drying heater is turned off. Dishes dry naturally.
Energy-Saving Tips
Operate dishwasher only when it's full. Let the
dishes accumulate in dishwasher. When you put in
only a partial load, use the RINSE & HOLD cycle to
rinse off heavy soils. Be sure to latch the door when
waiting for a full load. This helps keep soils moist,
easier to remove.
Good Dishwashing Starts with HOT Water
To get dishes clean and dry, you need hot water. To help you get water of the proper
temperature, your dishwasher automatically heats the water in the wash cycle. For good
washing and drying, the entering water must be at least 120°F. To prevent dish damage,
inlet water should not exceed 150°F.
Wash Cycle
During the drying period:
—The motor stops.
—Water vapor comes through the vent by the
door latch during drying and when water is
being pumped out.
Cycle Sequence
If you don't need your dishes right away, use your
ENERGY SAVER no-heat boost drying feature
that turns the drying heater off automatically. Dishes
dry naturally over a longer period such as overnight.
Always select the cycle that uses the least amount
of water that will remove the soil from the load.
(See the Operating section.)
