Additional Tips

Expect longer wash times. Your new dishwasher will average
2-3 hours per load, but use nearly 40% less energy than older
models. Designed with a low wattage, low energy consumption
motor, your dishwasher washes longer to ensure exceptional
cleaning. Certain models are equipped with an optical water
sensor so the first cycle will run longer to calibrate to optical
sensor. Selecting certain options could increase cycle time past
3.5 hours.
Rinse Aid is necessary for good drying results:
This dishwasher is designed to be used with rinse aid for good
drying performance and controlling hard water deposit buildup.
Energy efficient dishwashers use less water and energy, so they
depend on the water sheeting action of rinse aid for good drying
Start/Resume light may flash:
When pressing Start/Resume, you must make sure the door is
closed within 3 seconds. If you do not close the door within
3 seconds, the Start/Resume light will flash until you press it
again. (You must also do this when adding a dish during the
middle of a cycle.)
NOTE: If a braided supply hose is used, replace inlet hose after
5 years to reduce the risk of hose failure. Record hose installation
or replacement dates on the hose for future reference.
