IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARN ING -When using the dish washer. follow basic precautions. including the following:

• Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.

• Use the dishwasher only for its intended function.

• Use only detergents or rinse agents recom mended for use in the dishwasher. and keep them out of the reach of children.

• When loading items to be washed:

1) Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to damage the door seal; and

2) Load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce the risk of cut-type injuries.

• Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked "dishwasher safe" or the equivalent.

For plastic items not so marked. check the manufacturer's recommendations.

• Do not touch the heating element during or immediately after use.

• Do not operate the dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are properly in place.

• Do not tamper with controls.

• Do not abuse. sit on. or stand on the door or dish racks of the dishwasher.

HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not been used for such a period. before using the dishwasher turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas.

As the gas is flammable. do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.

• Remove the door to the washing compart ment when removing an old dishwasher from service or discarding it.

• For a grounded. cord connected dishwasher:.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

The dishwasher must be grounded.

In the event of a malfunction or breakdown. grounding will reduce the risk of electrical shock by providing a path of least resist ance for electric current. The dishwasher is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

WARNING Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electrical shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service representa tive if you are in doubt whether the dishwasher is properly grounded.

Do not modify the plug provided with the dish washer; if it will not fit the outlet. have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

• For a permanently connected dishwasher: GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS The dishwasher must be connected to a grounded metal. permanent wiring system. or an equipment-grounding conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on the dishwasher.

This section tells you how to properly load your dishwasher for the best washing and rinsing results.

Preparing to load the dishwasher

Scrape leftover food. bones. toothpicks. and other hard items from dishes. It is not necessary to rinse dishes before putting them into the dishwasher.

'. Load dishes so soiled surfaces face the spray (down or inward). It is important for the water spray to reach all soiled surfaces.

• Take care when loading heavy pots or pans into the dishwasher. They 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 touch interior walls or interfere with the spray arm rotation.

• Run a Rinse Only 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.

Loading the upper rack

The upper rack is designed for cups. glasses. and other small items.

• Load cups and glasses in the upper rack only. in the rows between the prongs.

Placing them over the prongs can cause them to chip or break.

• China. crystal. and other delicate items must not touch each other during dish washer operation.

Damage may occur.

• Place items so open ends face down for best cleaning and draining.

• Load plastic items securely in the upper rack only. Wash only plastic items marked "dishwasher safe."

II _-TT--4-f _-f'llHIIIIl

Cup and glass load

• Secure lightweight items so they don't overturn during washing. Wedge light weight items against one another or overlap them with heavier dishes.

• Load bowls in the center section for best stability.

Mixed load

Loading the lower rack

The lower rack is designed for plates. pans. casseroles. and utensils.

• Load items with cooked-on or dried-on food in the lower rack with soiled surfaces facing in toward the spray.

• For maximum capacity and stability of an all-plate load. stagger or overlap small plates with large ones.

• Load plates side to side along with pots. pans. and large cookware. as shown.

• Do not put small items in the lower rack if they are not secured in place.

Utensil load

• Load soup. cereal. and serving bowls in the rack in a variety of ways depending upon their size and shape. Load bowls securely between the rows of prongs. Do not nest bowls because the spray won't reach their surfaces.

• Do not load items between the bottom rack and the side of the dishwasher tub. This can block the water inlet opening.

Sure-Hold cup shelf (on some models)

Fold down the extra shelf on the left side of the lower rack to hold small items such as cups or utensils.

Mixed load

ili" ll

+ Load the silverware basket while it is in the lower rack or take the basket out for loading on a counter or table.

Mix items in each section of the basket some pointing up and some down.

Load forks and spoons so they don't nest together. Water spray cannot reach nested items.

The silverware basket can also be removed for easy unloading.

Unload or remove the basket before unloading the upper rack to avoid spilling water droplets on the silverware.

'. on't load silver or silver-plated silverware with stainless steel. These metals can be damaged by contact with one another during washing.

'_'Some foods (such as salt. vinegar. milk products. fruit juices. etc.) can pit or corrode silverware if left on for long periods of time.

Use the Rinse Only cycle when silverware is not washed immediately after use.

If you have any doubts about washing a particular item. check with the manufacturer to see if it is dishwasher safe.
