Loading the dishwasher racks

For best dishwashing results, follow these loading guidelines. Features and appearance of racks and silverware
baskets may vary from your model.
Tower
Do not cover upper rack tower
(not present on all models)

Upper Rack
The upper rack is for glasses, cups and
saucers. Cups and glasses fit best along
the sides. This is also a secure place for
dishwasher-safe plastics. The upper rack is
good for all kinds of odd-shaped utensils.
Saucepans, mixing bowls and other items
should be placed face down.
Lower Rack
When loading the lower rack, do not load
large platters or trays in the front right
corner. They may prevent detergent from
circulating during the wash cycle.
Wash Tower
Keep the center area clear in the lower
rack.
The wash tower rises through the
center of the lower rack during the
wash and rinse portions of the cycle.
Don't block the upper rack
wash tower.
Silverware Basket
Put flatware in the removable basket with
fork and knife handles up to protect your
hands. Place spoons in the basket with
handles down. Mix knives, forks and spoons
so they don't nest together. Distribute
evenly. Small plastic items, such as
measuring spoons and lids from small
containers, should go in the bottom of the
silverware basket with silverware on top.
Secure larger dishwasher-safe plastics over
two fingers when possible.
Make sure small plastic items are secure so
they can't fall onto the heating element.
The lower rack is best used for plates,
saucers and cookware. Large items such as
broiler pans and racks should go along the
sides. Load platters, pots and bowls along
the sides, in corners or in the back. The
soiled side of items should face the center
of the rack.
Don't block the wash
tower or load tall things
next to it.
Be sure items don't fall
through rack and block
rotation of the spray arm.
Also, be careful not to
let a portion of an item
such as a pot or dish
handle extend through
the bottom rack. This
could block the wash
arm and cause poor
washing results.
DON'T LET ANY ITEM EXTEND THROUGH
BOTTOM OF SILVERWARE BASKET AND
RACK, TO ENSURE PROPER FUNCTION
OF SPRAY ARM.
