    Wash System Your Kenmore dishwasher filters 100% of the water for optimum cleaning. The wash system uses alternating arms to save water and energy and includes: • A soil sensor that checks the soil level in the first wash and first rinse. When the soil level is determined, additional water fills may be added or deleted.

  • Page 8

    Wash Cycle Selections Cycle times are approximate and will vary with options selected. • Hot water is necessary to activate dishwasher detergent and melt fatty food soils. • An automatic sensor will check the incoming water temperature and, if it is not hot enough, the timer will be delayed for automatic water heating in the main wash.

    Option Selections Hi-Temp Scrub When HI-TEMP SCRUB option is selected, the dishwasher heats the water in the main wash to approximately 145°F (63°C). This increase in water temperature helps dishwasher detergent remove food grease and soil from dishes more effectively and aids in drying. HI-TEMP SCRUB option can be used with all cycles except WATER MISER and QUICK RINSE.

    When the SANITIZE option is selected, the SANITIZED light will glow when the SANITIZE cycle is finished. If the dishwasher did not properly sanitize the dishes, the light will not come on. This can happen if the cycle is interrupted. The light will remain on until the door is opened.

    Preparing and Loading Loading the Bottom Rack Features and appearance of racks and silverware basket may vary from your model. The bottom rack is best for plates, saucers, bowls, and cookware.
