Upper Rack

Although the upper rack is for glasses, cups
and saucers, pots and pans can be placed
in this rack for effective cleaning. Cups and
glasses fit best along the sides. This is also
a secure place for dishwasher plastics.
The utility shelf (on some models) may be
placed in the up or down position to add
flexibility. A wine glass holder (on some
models) secures wine glasses for best
Some models have contoured metal cup
shelves that can secure up to 12 wine glasses
(as shown).
Some models have an Angled Rack System,
which allows you to angle your dishes, such
as coffee mugs, for better cleaning and
quicker drying. To position the tines, pull the
lever forward then drop the tines into
position, then release the lever.
Because wine glasses come in various sizes,
after loading, slowly push in the rack to make
sure they will clear the top of the dishwasher.

Adjustable Upper Rack

The standard position of your adjustable rack
is "up" which allows for maximum clearance
for your taller items in the lower rack. If you
have taller wine glasses, tumblers or other
items to place in the upper rack, you may
want to adjust the rack to the lower position.
To lower the rack, support the weight of the
rack with your hands as shown and press
both finger pads about 1/4" toward the inside
of the rack as indicated and guide the rack
down to its lower position.
To raise the rack to the "up" position, pull up
on the center of the rack side frame until the
rack locks into place.
While using a Single Rack Wash cycle, if
you have taller glasses, 10" plates, tumblers
or other items, you may want to adjust your
upper rack to a lower position.

The upper rack is good for all kinds of
odd-shaped utensils. Saucepans, mixing
bowls and other items should be placed face
down. Fold-down tines (on some models)
provide flexibility for extra-large and hard-
to-fit items.
Secure larger dishwasher-safe plastics over
2 tines when possible.
Make sure small plastic items are secure so
they can't fall onto the heater.
Be sure that items do not protrude through the
bottom of the rack and block rotation of the
middle spray arm. This could result in poor
wash performance for items in the upper rack.
Check to make sure that no items will block
rotation of the wash arm.
