Suggestions
Remove leftover food, bones, toothpicks
and other hard
items from the dishes. To conserve water, energy and save
time it is not necessary to rinse dishes before putting them in
the dishwasher. The wash module removes food particles
from the water. The module contains a chopping device
which will reduce the size of food items.
NOTE: If hard items such as fruit seeds, nuts, and egg shells
enter the wash module, you might hear chopping, grinding,
crunching, or buzzing sounds. These sounds are normal
when hard items enter the module. Do not let metallic items
(such as pot handle screws) get into the wash module.
Damage can occur.
It is important for the water spray to reach all soiled surfaces.
Load dishes so they are not stacked or overlapping
if
possible. For best drying, water must be able to drain from all
surfaces.
Load heavy pots and pans carefully. Heavy items can dent
the stainless steel interior of the door if they are dropped or
bumped.
Make sure pot lids and handles, pizza pans, cookie sheets,
etc., do not interfere with the spray arm rotation.
Conserve water, energy and save time over hand rinsing by
running a rinse cycle to keep dishes moist if you do not plan
to wash them soon. Foods like eggs, rice, pasta, spinach,
and cooked cereals may be hard to remove if they are left to
dry over a period of time.
Quiet operating
tips
To avoid thumping/clattering
noises during operation:
Make sure lightweight
load items are secured in the racks.
Make sure pot lids and handles, pizza pans, cookie sheets,
etc., do not touch interior walls or interfere with the rotation of
the spray arm.
Load dishes so they do not touch one another.
NOTE: For built-in models, keep sink drain plugs closed during
dishwasher operation to prevent noise transfer through drains.
