Quick Steps
Dishwasher Use
Prepare and Load the Dishwasher
IMPORTANT: Remove leftover food, bones, toothpicks d other hard items from the dishes. Remove labels from containers before washing.
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.”
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.
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.
