Air gap
Check the air gap any time your
dishwasher isn't draining well.

Cleaning the Exterior Door Panel
Before cleaning the front panel, make
sure you know what type of panel you have.
Refer to the last two letters of your model
number. You can locate your model number
on the left-hand tub wall just inside the door.
If your model number ends with BB, CC, WW,
SA or BG, then you have a painted door
panel. If your model number ends with SS,
then you have a Stainless Steel Door panel. If
your model number ends with CS, then you
have a CleanSteel panel.
Follow the instructions below for cleaning the
door panel for your specific model.
Painted Door Panel (model numbers ending
in BB–black, CC–bisque, WW–white, SA–silver
metallic or BG–graphite black)
Use a clean, soft, lightly dampened cloth,
then dry thoroughly. You may also use a
good appliance wax or polish.
Stainless Steel Interior—Tub and Inner Door
The stainless steel used to make the
dishwasher tub and inner door provides
the highest reliability available in a GE
dishwasher. If the dishwasher tub or inner
door should be scratched or dented during
normal use, they will not rust or corrode.
These surface blemishes will not affect
their function or durability.
Cleaning the Control Panel
To clean the control panel, use a lightly
dampened cloth. Then dry thoroughly.
Protect Against Freezing
If your dishwasher is left in an unheated
place during the winter, ask a service
technician to:
Cut off electrical power to the
1
dishwasher. Remove fuses or trip
circuit breaker.
Turn off the water supply and disconnect
2
the water inlet line from the water valve.
Does Your Dishwasher Have an Air Gap?
An air gap protects your dishwasher
against water backing up into it if a drain
clogs. The air gap is not a part of the
dishwasher. It is not covered by your
warranty. Not all plumbing codes require
air gaps, so you may not have one.
Stainless Steel Door Panel (model numbers
ending in SS)
The stainless steel panels can be cleaned
with Stainless Steel Magic or a similar product
using a clean, soft cloth. Do not use appliance
wax, polish, bleach or products containing
chlorine on Stainless Steel doors.
You can order Stainless Steel Magic
#WX10X15 through GE Parts by calling
800.626.2002.
CleanSteel Door Panel (model numbers
ending in CS)
Use a clean, soft, lightly dampened cloth,
then dry thoroughly. Do not use appliance
wax, polish or any chemical agent on
CleanSteel doors.
Do not wipe the dishwasher with a soiled
dish cloth or wet towel. These may leave
a residue. Do not use scouring pads or
powdered cleaners because these products
can scratch the finish.
Drain water from the water inlet line
3
and water valve. (Use a pan to catch
the water.)
Reconnect the water inlet line to the
4
water valve.
The air gap is easy to clean.
Turn off the dishwasher and lift off the
1
cover.
Remove the plastic cap and clean with
2
a toothpick.
