WARNING: When using the dishwasher. follow basic precautions. including the following:

[] Read all instructions before using the dishwasher. [] Do not tamper with controls.

[] Use the dishwasher only for its intended function.

[] Use only detergents or rinse agents recommended for use in a 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 abuse. sit on. or stand on the door. lid. or dish racks of the dishwasher.

[] To reduce the risk of injury. do not allow children to play in or on the dishwasher.

[] Under certain conditions. hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for two weeks or more. 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 or lid to the washing compartment when removing an old dishwasher from service or discarding it.

GROUNDING iNSTRUCTiONS

For a grounded. cord-connected dishwasher:

The dishwasher must be grounded.

In the event of a malfunction or breakdown. grounding will reduce the risk of electric shock by providing a path of least resistance 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 electric shock.

Check with a qualified electrician or service representative if you are in doubt whether the dishwasher is properly grounded.

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

For a permanently connected dishwasher:

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.

Prepare and Load the Dishwasher

IMPORTANT: Remove leftover food. bones. toothpicks and other hard items from the dishes. Remove labels from containers before washing.

To avoid thumping/clattering noises during operation: Load dishes so they do not touch one another. Make sure lightweight load items are secured in the racks.

When loading silverware. always place sharp items pointing down. Mix other items pointing up and some pointing down.

Upper rack Lower rack

Make sure nothing keeps spray arm(s) from spinning freely. It is important for the water spray to reach all soiled surfaces.

Make sure that when the dishwasher door is closed no items are blocking the detergent dispenser.

Items should be loaded with soiled surfaces facing down and inward to the spray as shown. This will improve cleaning and drying results.

Avoid overlapping items like bowls or plates that may trap food.

Place plastics. small plates and glasses in the upper rack.

Wash only plastic items marked "dishwasher safe."

Add Detergent

NOTE: If you do not plan to run a wash cycle soon. run a rinse cycle. Do not use detergent.

Use automatic dishwasher detergent only. Add powder. liquid or tablet detergent just before starting a cycle.

Fresh automatic dishwasher detergent results in better cleaning.

Store tightly closed detergent container in a cool. dry place.

For optimum performance. tablet detergent is recommended.

Premeasured Detergents

Many detergents now come in premeasured forms (gel packs. tablets. or powder packs). These forms are suitable for all hardness and soil levels. Always place premeasured detergents in the main compartment and close the lid.

Using dishwasher detergent tablets and packs have been proven better than powder. liquid or gel detergents to reduce filming on your dishes.

By using these tablets and packs. over time this will start to reduce or eliminate white film. Also. by using a rinse aid you can minimize repeat buildup of white film.

Powder and Gels

The amount of detergent to use depends on:

How much soil remains on the items - Heavily soiled loads require more detergent.

The hardness of the water - If you use too little in hard water. dishes won't be clean. If you use too much in soft water. glassware will etch.

Soft to Medium Water (0-6 grains per U.S. gallon) [typical water softener water and some city water] Medium to Hard Water (7-12 grains per U.S. gallon) [well water and some city water]

Depending on your water hardness. fill the Main Wash section of the dispenser as shown. Fill the Pre-Wash section to the level shown. if needed.

NOTE: Fill amounts shown are for standard powdered detergent.

Follow instructions on the package when using other dishwasher detergent.

Add Rinse Aid

HardWater

SoftWater HerdWater SoftWater

MainWash Pro-Wash

Your dishwasher is designed to use rinse aid for good drying performance.

Without rinse aid your dishes and dishwasher interior will have excessive moisture. The heat dry option will not perform as well without rinse aid.

Rinse aid keeps water from forming droplets that can dry as spots or streaks. They also improve drying by allowing water to drain off of the dishes after the final rinse.

Rinse aid helps to reduce excess moisture on the dish racks and interior of your dishwasher.

Full

Check the rinse aid indicator. Add rinse aid when indicator drops to "Refill" level.

To add rinse aid. turn the dispenser cap to "Open" and lift off. Pour rinse aid into the opening until the indicator level is at "Full." Replace the dispenser cap and turn to "Lock." Make sure cap is fully locked.

If lights other than START/RESUME blink and the unit will not run. you will need to call for service.

DETERGENT REMAINS IN THE Check for dishware such as cookie sheets. cutting boards. or large containers. etc. that may be DISPENSER OR blocking the detergent dispenser from opening properly.

TABLET IS ON BOTTOM OFTUB Be sure your detergent is fresh and lump free.

Be sure the cycle has been completed (green light is on). If it has not been completed. you will need to resume the cycle by pressing START/RESUME and closing the door within 3 seconds.

CYCLE RUNS TOO LONG NOTES:

To use less water and reduce energy consumption you will encounter cycles that typically run for up to 3 hours.

A water heater setting of 120°F (49°C) is best. The dishwasher will delay longer while heating cooler water.

Some options will add time to the cycle. (See "Cycles and Options Descriptions" section.) The Heated Dry option adds 1/2hour.

Try the Quick Wash cycle.

Run the hot water at a faucet close to the dishwasher before starting the cycle.

DISHWASHER NOT DRYING NOTE: Plastic and items with nonstick surfaces are difficult to dry because they have a porous surface which tends to collect water droplets. Towel drying may be necessary.

Use of rinse aid along with the Heated Dry option is needed for proper drying.

Proper loading of items can affect drying. (See specific loading instructions within this guide.)

Glasses and cups with concave bottoms hold water. This water may spill onto other items when unloading. Unload the bottom rack first.

Locate these items on the more slanted side of the rack for improved results.

WILL NOT FILL Be sure the water is turned on to the dishwasher.

Check that the float is free from obstructions. (See "Parts and Features.")

Check for suds in the dishwasher. If foam or suds are detected. the dishwasher may not operate properly or may not fill with water.

Check for kinks in the drain hose.

Check for food obstructions in the drain or disposer.

Check your house fuse or circuit breaker.

HARD WATER NOTE: Extremely hard water mineral deposits can cause damage to your dishwasher and make it (WHITE RESIDUE ON difficult to achieve good cleaning. A water softener is strongly recommended if your hardness is DISHWASHER INTERIOR OR 15 grains or more. If a water softener is not installed. the following steps may help: GLASSWARE) Use a commercial cleaner designed for dishwashers once per month.

Always use a rinse aid.

Always use a high-quality. fresh detergent.

Use a detergent booster/water softener additive designed for dishwashers.

PROBLEM SOLUTION ODORS NOTE: If the dishwasher is not used daily. you can run a rinse cycle with the partial load until a full load is ready to run.

Run a vinegar rinse through the dishwasher by putting 2 cups (500 mL) of white vinegar in an upright glass measuring cup in the lower rack. Run a normal cycle with the Heated Dry option turned off. Do not use detergent.

NOISY

The dishwasher may not be draining properly. see "WATER REMAINS IN THE TUB/WILL NOT DRAIN" in "Troubleshooting." NOTES:

Surging sounds can occur periodically throughout the cycle while the dishwasher is draining.

Normal water valve hissing may be heard periodically.

A normal snap sound may be heard when the detergent dispenser opens during the cycle and when the door is opened at the end of the cycle.

Improper installation will affect noise levels.

Be sure the filters are properly installed.

FOOD SOILS REMAIN ON DISHES

A thumping sound may be heard if items extend beyond the racks and interfere with the wash arms. Readjust the dishware and resume the cycle.

Be sure the dishwasher is loaded correctly.

Improper loading can greatly decrease the washing performance (see "Prepare and Load the Dishwasher").

Select the proper cycle and option for the type of soils. The JetClean®/JetClean ®Plus Steam cycle with the Steam Sanitize option can be used for tougher loads.

Be sure the incoming water temperature is at least 120°F (49°C).

Use the proper amount of fresh detergent.

More detergent is needed for heavier-soiled loads and hard water conditions.

DID NOT SANITIZE

DAMAGE TO DISHWARE

BLINKING LIGHTS

CLOUDY OR SPOTTED DISHWARE (AND HARD WATER SOLUTION)

Scrape food from dishes prior to loading (do not prerinse).

If the sanitized light is blinking. the load is NOT sanitized. The cycle was interrupted in the final rinse. or your water heater is set too low. Set your water heater to 120°F (49°C).

Improper loading can cause dishes to become chipped or damaged. (See specific loading instructions within this guide.) If the START/RESUME light is blinking. press START/RESUME and close the door within 3 seconds.

If the Clean light or any other lights are blinking and the dishwasher will not run. call for service.

NOTES:

Liquid rinse aid is necessary for drying and to reduce spotting.

Use the correct amount of detergent.

Confirm that the cloudiness is removable by soaking the item in white vinegar for 5 minutes. If the cloudiness disappears. it is due to hard water. Adjust the amount of detergent and rinse aid. See ("HARD WATER [WHITE RESIDUE ON DISHWASHER INTERIOR OR GLASSWARE]") in "Troubleshooting." If it does not come clear. it is due to etching (see below).

Be sure the incoming water temperature is set at 120°F (49°C).

ETCHING (PERMANENT CLOUDINESS)

LEAKING WATER

TUB IS DISCOLORED

Try using the Hi Temp and Sani Rinse options.

To remove spotting. run a vinegar rinse through the dishwasher. Wash and rinse the affected dishware and load into dishwasher. Remove all silverware and metal items. Put 2 cups (500 mL) of white vinegar in a glass measuring cup in the lower rack.

Run a normal cycle with the Heated Dry option turned off. No detergent is needed.

This is an erosion of the surface of the glassware and can be caused by a combination of: water that is too hot. from using too much detergent with soft water or by pre-washing.

Detergent needs food soil to act upon. If etching has occurred. the glassware is permanently damaged.

To avoid further etching. adjust the detergent amount to match the water hardness. stop pre-washing. and use water heating options only when incoming water temperature is below 120°F (49°C).

Be sure dishwasher has been installed properly and is level.

Suds can cause the dishwasher to overflow. Measure the detergent accurately and use only detergents designed for use in a dishwasher.

Less detergent is needed in soft water. Try another brand of detergent if sudsing continues.

To avoid rinse aid leaking from the dispenser. be sure the lid is securely attached and avoid overfilling.

NOTES:

High iron content in the water can discolor the tub. Tomato-based foods can discolor the tub or dishware.

A citrus-based cleaner can be used to clean.
