Your dishwasher uses energy effi cient motors
for the wash and drain portions of the cycle you
select. Each cycle has a series of water fi lls and
drains for washing and rinsing dishes. As each
cycle begins, you may or may not hear the drain
motor. You may also hear the splashing water as
it enters the tub and the spray arms as they rotate
and circulate water. The wash motor often pulsates
throughout the cycle, which varies water pressure
and optimizes performance.
E n e r g y U s e
The yellow energy guide label that came on your
unit tells how much energy it would use in one year
and how it compares to others that are available.
The energy is based on the Normal cycles
response to tests that apply soils and dishware that
simulate the average use. Eight place settings of
dishware and some serving pieces are used during
the test. The total energy is based on running
the average number of cycles per year, applying
typical soil levels to the dishware and half the time,
selecting the option of using extra energy to more
fully dry the dishware. Actual energy and water use
will depend upon the cycle and options you select.
This unit uses an in-line water heating element
that is located under the tub. There is no exposed
heater that plasticware might come in contact
with or that is accessible to touch. The heat is
taken to the dishware through the heated water.
For this reason, plastic dishware may be placed
where it best fi ts in either the top or bottom
rack. Temperatures are uniform throughout the
If the user prefers to save energy and dry the
dishes by hand they select air dry instead of
heated dry. Air dry is still an option. If you prefer to
spend slightly more energy to get the dishes drier
than turn the air dry option off. In response the
wash and rinse temperatures in the cycle will be

This will help the cleaning and it will also get the
dishwasher hotter. When the fi nal drain removes
all standing water, the extra heat stored in the
dishware will act to evaporate the remaining water.
Your unit provides a selection of cycles. In general,
the more water used by a cycle and the hotter the
temperatures it reaches the more energy that it
uses. Several cycles, such as the Normal cycle will
change their response based on soil level, options
selected, and ambient conditions. The Normal
cycle is good for all around use. Other cycles are
focused toward special use like the Heavy cycle
that is designed for heavily solid cookware.
Your unit has DishSense
used to understand how heavily soiled the dish
load is so the cycle can be automatically adjusted
to the appropriate response. This helps to
prevent energy waste. The sensor is calibrated
at the end of the cycle. For the fi rst cycle after
power is applied (when fi rst installed or after a
power failure) the sensor will not be calibrated
and so cannot determine the soil load. Therefore,
your unit will provide a response suitable for
heavy soils on the fi rst run after power is restored.
This will assure that whatever is loaded will get
cleaned. Energy use during this fi rst run may be
higher than would be typical.
