IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Read all instructions before using this appliance.

Save these instructions for future reference.

WARNING

This symbol will help alert you to such dangers as personal injury, burns, fire, and electrical shock.

WARNING

To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury when using your dishwasher, follow basic precautions including the following:

Use your dishwasher only as instructed in this Use and Care Manual.

This Manual does not cover every possible condition and situation that may occur. Use common sense and caution when installing, operating and maintaining any appliance.

NSF certified residential dishwashers are not intended for licensed food establishments.

DISHWASHER MUST BE ELECTRICALLY GROUNDED. Read the Installation Instructions for details.

This dishwasher is designed to operate on regular house current (120 V, 60 Hz). Use a circuit equipped with a 15 ampere fuse or circuit breaker. Use a 20 ampere fuse if dishwasher is connected with a food waste disposer.

Do not operate dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are in their proper place.

To avoid entrapment and/or suffocation, remove door or door latch mechanism from any dishwasher that is discarded or not in use.

Keep young children and infants away from dishwasher when it is operating.

Do not let children abuse, sit, stand or play on door or racks of a dishwasher.

Use only detergents and rinse agents recommended for use in a dishwasher.

Store dishwasher detergent and rinse agents out of the reach of children.

Do not wash plastic items unless marked “dishwasher safe” or the equivalent. Check with manufacturer for recommendations, if not marked. Items that are not dishwasher safe may melt and create a potential fire hazard.

Disconnect electrical power to dishwasher before servicing.

If the dishwasher drains into a food disposer, make sure disposer is completely empty before running dishwasher.

Repairs should be done by a qualified technician.

Do not tamper with controls.

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

Use care unloading the dishware when the SANITIZE option has been selected. Contents may be hot to the touch immediately after the end of cycle.

Water vapor from the vent may be hot to the touch when the SANITIZE option has been selected. Use care and do not let small children play around or touch the vent area of the dishwasher.

When loading items to be washed:

-Locate sharp items and knives so that they are not likely to damage the door seal or tub.

-Load sharp items and knives with the handles up to reduce the risk of cut-typeinjuries.

Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for 2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If hot water system has not been used for such a period, before using dishwasher, turn on all hot water faucets and let water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. HYDROGEN GAS IS FLAMMABLE. Do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.

Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.

NOTE

Very Important Information—

Read Before Operating Your

Dishwasher!

Normal Operating Sounds

This dishwasher does not sound like mostdishwashers—IT'SQUIETER.

Your Direct Feed Wash System dishwasher uses energy efficient motors for the wash and drain portions of the cycle you select. Each cycle has a series of water fills and drains for washing and rinsing dishes. As each cycle begins, you may–ormay not– hear the drain motor. The next sound you will hear is the splashing water as it enters the tub.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: If you compare this dishwasher to previous models, you may be surprised at what you DON'T hear!

DISHWASHER FEATURES

Your dishwasher cleans by spraying a mixture of hot water and detergent through the spray arms against soiled surfaces. Each cycle begins by filling with water covering the filter area. Next, the dishwasher fills with water covering the filter area. Water is then pumped through the filter and spray arms. Soil particles go down the drain as the water is pumped out and replaced with clean water. The number of water fills will vary with the cycle being used.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Getting Started

1.Load dishwasher (See Preparing and Loading Dishes).

2.Add detergent (See Dishwasher Dispenser & Detergents).

3.Add rinse aid (See Rinse Aid).

4.Select desired CYCLE (See Cycle Chart). The indicator light above the pad will glow when selected.

5.Select desired OPTIONS (See Energy Options). The indicator light above the pad will glow when selected.

6.Run hot water faucet nearest dishwasher until water is hot. Turn water off.

7.To start, press START/CANCEL pad.

8.Close door to latch.

NOTE

The dishwasher is programmed to remember your last cycle so you do not have to reset each time. To start the dishwasher using the same cycle and options selected on the previous wash, just press the START/CANCEL pad.

Wash Cycle Selections

Cycle times are approximate and will vary with options selected. Hot water is necessary to activate dishwasher detergent and melt fatty food soils. An automatic sensor will check the incoming water temperature and, if it is not hot enough, the timer will be delayed for automatic water heating in the main wash of all cycles. This happens even when HI-TEMPWASH option has not been selected. WhenHI-TEMPWASH is selected, an even higher temperature will be guaranteed to handle heavier

soil loads.

NOTE

Lights and Display on top of console will shut off when the door is closed. They will light up when the door is opened and display time remaining will be displayed for several seconds. Then “Cd” will display flashing, informing you to close the door so the cycle can continue.

Options Selections

Hi-TempWash

When HI-TEMPWASH option is selected, the dishwasher heats water in the main wash to approximately 140°F (60°C).

This increase in water temperature helps

dishwasher detergent remove food grease and soil from dishes more effectively and aids in drying. This option is available in NORMAL WASH and LIGHT WASH. HI-TEMPWASH is automatically provided when HEAVY WASH cycle is selected.

5

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Sanitize Option

To sanitize your dishes and glassware, select the SANITIZE option. When selected, the light above the pad will come on. The water temperature in the final rinse will be raised to 155°F (68°C) assuring bacteria is destroyed. This option is available in HEAVY WASH, NORMAL WASH and LIGHT WASH. Only these sanitization cycles have been designed to meet NSF requirements.

The cycle time will be extended until the proper water temperature is reached. Washing action will continue during the water heating delay. For best results, the incoming water temperature should be at least 120°F (49°C).

The sanitize criteria may not be satisfied if there is an interruption of the cycle, power failure or if the incoming water temperature is below 120°F (49°C).

To turn off the SANITIZE option, press the pad a second time. The light above the pad will turn off.

To Cancel a Cycle

You can cancel a cycle anytime during the cycle. Press START/CANCEL pad and the dishwasher will start a 60 second drain. At the end of the drain, select the desired cycle.

When an option is selected, the light above the pad will come on and remain on until end of cycle. To turn off the option, press the pad a second time. The light above the pad will turn off.

Child Lock Controls

To prevent children from accidently changing the dishwasher cycle or starting the dishwasher, lock the dishwasher controls by pressing and releasing the DELAY START pad for 3 seconds. An indicator light on the lock graphic pad will illuminate when the controls are locked and no new selections can be made until the lock is released. To unlock the controls, press the DELAY START pad until the indicator light goes out.

Air Dry

The unit defaults to heated dry when it is started with any cycle selected. This drying uses a combination of the heated dry with rinse aid that achieves enhanced drying performance. If you prefer to only have AIR DRY for dishes, you will select AIR DRY and the unit will not energize the heating element. This will reduce energy consumption, but reduce drying perfomance.

Delay Start

The DELAY START option allows you to automatically delay starting your dishwasher from 1-24hours.

On models with 1-24hour delay, press the DELAY START pad until the desired delay time shows in the STATUS window. A light will come on indicating the delay start hours and will remain on until cycle starts.

To cancel the DELAY START option and begin the cycle before the delay period is over, press the START/CANCEL pad.

6

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

The Smart Soil Sensor checks the soil level on your dishes in the Heavy Wash, Light Wash, and Normal Wash cycles. Depending on soil level, the sensor will determine if additional water fills are needed to clean the dishes or if water fills can be deleted. Cycle time and water usage will vary based on the amount of soil on the dishes. Cycle time will also vary based on the options selected and the incoming water temperature. Not all cycles available on all models.

Dish Preparation

Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits, toothpicks, etc. The continuous filtered wash system will remove remaining food particles. Burned-onfoods should be loosened before loading. Empty liquids from glasses and cups.

Foods such as mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar, lemon juice and tomato based products may cause discoloration of stainless steel and plastics if allowed to sit for a long period of time. Unless the dishwasher is to be operated at once, it is best to rinse off these food soils.

• Load racks so that large items do not prevent the detergent dispenser from opening.

Check manufacturer's recommendations before washing items in question.

If the dishwasher drains into a food disposer, be sure disposer is completelyempty before starting

dishwasher.

Loading the Top Rack

Features and appearance of racks and silverware basket may vary from your model.

The upper rack is designed for flexibility in loading a wide variety of items including cups, glasses, stemware, small plates, bowls, etc.

Load glasses in top rack. Damage may occur if placed in bottom rack.

Load plastic items in top rack only. Melting may occur if placed in bottom rack.

Load items with open ends facing down for better cleaning and draining.

Damage may occur if delicate items touch each other during dishwasher operation.

Be sure nothing protrudes through the bottom of the rack to block rotation of middle spray arm.

PREPARING AND LOADING DISHES

10 place settings standard loading pattern

(For best washing performance, the upper rack should be in the raised position.)

12 place settings standard loading pattern

Some models have a fold-downcup shelf or a cup shelf/ stemware holder. They can be used to load two levels of cups, juice glasses, and other short items. Stagger items on upper level so that water can reach all inside surfaces. Fold up to load tall glasses.

PREPARING AND LOADING DISHES

Bowl Tines

The bowl tines offer the ultimate in flexibility. When closed, load with saucers or small dishes. Open halfway and it is perfect for small casseroles. Open completely for those hard to fit items such as coffee pots, food processors, etc. As you load your dishwasher, you will find many other ways to use this unique feature.

To raise the rack to the middle or upper position, simply lift the rack. The lever is spring loaded to engage the upper position. To lower the rack to the lower position, push lever with thumbs and push downward simutaneously. To ensure ease of adjustment when adjusting the rack, ensure that the rack remains level from front to back with both sides at the same height.

Fold-downTines

The fold-downtines in the lower rack make easy loading for those extra large andhard-to-fititems. The tines may be left up for normal use or folded down for more flexible loading. Fold down for more space to load large pots or pans.

Adjustable Upper Rack (available on select models)

The top rack height can be easily adjusted to accommodate loading taller dishes in either rack. Height should be adjusted without dishes in the racks.

To accommodate taller dishes in the bottom rack, there are 2 positions available:
