China & Crystal program, although
extremely gentle and thorough can
cause the china and crystal to "wear"
if they are not dishwasher safe.

washing glassware, when in doubt
wash by hand.
– When purchasing new dishes,
glasses and cutlery, make sure they

Silver and aluminum:
– Silver or aluminum items may tarnish.
– Silverware previously cleaned with a
silver polish may be damp or spotted
at the end of a program where water
has adhered to the polish. This can
be rubbed off with a soft, dry cloth.
Silver that has been cleaned in an
immersion dip is usually dry at the
end of a program, but may tarnish.
– If left to dry, foods containing sulfur
can discolor silver. These include
egg yolk, onions, mayonnaise,
mustard, fish and marinades.
– Silverware may tarnish or pit if
washed next to stainless steel.
Leave space between these metals.
– Clean aluminum items, e.g. grease
filters, with domestic dishwasher
