Your safety and the safety of others are very important.

We have provided many important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read and obey all safety messages.

This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential hazards that can kill or hurt you and others. All safety messages will follow the safety alert symbol and either the word "DANGER" or "WARNING." These words mean:

ADANGER

AWARNING

You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't immediately follow instructions.

You can be killed or seriously injured if you don't follow instructions.

All safety messages will tell you what the potential hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can happen if the instructions are not followed.

SAFETY

INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING: When using the dishwasher, 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 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 tamper with controls.

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.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

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.

Dishwasher Use

STEP1

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

STEP 2

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.

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."

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 and avoid "nesting" as shown.

A. Cover latch

B. Main Wash section

C. Pre-Wash section

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

Pre-Wash

MainWash

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.

Check the rinse aid indicator. Add rinse aid when indicator drops to "Add" level. To add rinse aid, turn the dispenser cap to "Refill" 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.

NOTE: For most water conditions, the factory setting of 2 will give good results. If you have hard water or notice rings or spots, try a higher setting. Turn the arrow adjuster inside the dispenser by either using your fingers or inserting a flat-blade screwdriver into the center of the arrow and turning.

NitraTion bysrem

Your dishwasher has the latest technology in dishwasher filtration. This triple filtration system minimizes sound and optimizes water and energy conservation while providing superior cleaning performance. Throughout the life of your dishwasher, the filter will require maintenance to sustain peak cleaning performance.

The triple filter system consists of 2 parts, an upper filter assembly and a lower filter.

The upper filter assembly keeps oversized items and

foreign objects, along with very fine food particles, out of the pump.

The lower filter keeps food from being recirculated onto your dishware. The filters may need to be cleaned when:

Visible objects or soils are on the Upper Filter Assembly.

There is degradation in cleaning performance (that is, soils still present on dishes).

Dishes feel gritty to the touch.

To remove Upper Filter Assembly

Cleaning Instructions IMPORTANT: Do not use wire brush, scouring pad, etc. as they may damage the filters. Rinse filter under running water until most soils are removed. If you have hard-to-remove soils or calcium deposits from hard water, a soft brush may be required.

Cleaning the Dishwasher Clean the exterior of the dishwasher with a soft, damp cloth and mild detergent. If your dishwasher has a stainless steel exterior, a stainless steel cleaner is recommended. Clean the interior of the dishwasher, with a paste of powdered dishwasher detergent and water or use liquid dishwasher detergent on a damp sponge to clean the cooled-down interior.

A white vinegar rinse may remove white spots and film. Vinegar is an acid, and using it too often could damage your dishwasher.

Filter Reinstallation Instructions

1. Noting the previous illustrations, place the Lower Filter under the Locating Tabs in the bottom of the dishwasher so the round opening for the Upper Filter Assembly lines up with the round opening in the bottom of the tub.

Locating tab

To replace Upper Filter Assembly

2; Insert the Upper Filter Assembly into the circular opening in the Lower Filter. 3. Slowly rotate the filter clockwise until it drops into place. Continue to rotate until the filter is locked into place. If the filter is not fully seated (still turns freely), continue to turn the filter clockwise until it drops and locks into place. NOTE: The Upper Filter Assembly arrow does not have to

align with the arrow in the Lower Filter as long as the filter is locked.

IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to dishwasher,'do not operate your dishwasher without the filters properly installed. Be sure the Lower Filter is securely in place and the Upper Filter Assembly is locked into place. If the Upper Filter Assembly turns freely, it is not locked into place.

Put 2 cups (500 mL) white vinegar in a glass or dishwasher-safe measuring cup on the bottom rack. Run the dishwasher through a complete washing cycle using an air-dry or an energy-saving dry option. Do not use detergent, vinegar will mix with the wash water.

If you have a drain air gap, check and clean it if the dishwasher isn't draining well.

Storing the Dishwasher If you will not be using the dishwasher during the summer months, turn off the water and power supply to the dishwasher. In the winter, if the dishwasher could be exposed to near freezing temperatures or is left in a seasonal dwelling such as a second home or vacation home, avoid water damage by having your dishwasher winterized by authorized service personnel.

Troubleshooting

First try the solutions suggested here or visit our website and reference FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) to possibly avoid the cost of a service call. In the U.SA, www.kitchenaid.com In Canada, www.kitchenaid.ca

Dishwasher does not run

If the Start/Resume light is blinking, push START/RESUME and close the door within 3 seconds. Be sure the door is closed and latched.

Be sure you have selected a cycle. (See "Cycles and Options Descriptions.") Be sure there is power to the dishwasher. A circuit breaker or fuse may have tripped.

it is normal for the dishwasher to repeatedly pause several

times during a cycle.

If lights other than Start/Resume blink and the unit will not run,

you will need to call for service.

Detergent remains in the dispenser or tablet is on the bottom of tub Check for dishwater such as cookie sheets, cutting boards, or large containers, etc. that may: be blocking the detergent dispenser from opening properly. Be sure your detergent is fresh and lump free. Be sure the cycle has completed (green light is on). If it has not completed, you will need to resume the cycle by pressing START/RESUME and closing the door within 3 seconds.

Cycles run too long

Try 1 hour wash. 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. Options such as; Hi Temp and ProScrubTRfl will add time to the cycle. Heated Dry adds % hour. Run the hot water at a faucet close to the dishwasher before starting the cycle.

Dishwasher not drying

Use of Rinse Aid along with the Heated Dry needed for proper drying.

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

Water remains in the tub/will not drain

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

If dishwasher is connected to a food waste disposer, be sure

the knockout plug has been removed from the disposer inlet.

Check for kinks in the drain hose. Check for food obstructions in the drain or disposer. Check your house fuse or circuit breaker.

Condensation on the kitchen counter (built-in models)

Is the dishwasher aligned with the countertop?

Moisture from the vent in the dishwasher console can form on the counter. Refer to the Installation Instructions for more information. Hard Water (white residue on the dishwasher interior or glassware)

Extremely hard water mineral deposits can cause damage to

your dishwasher and make it difficult to achieve good cleaning.

A

water softener is strongly recommended if your hardness is

15 grains or rhore. If a water softener is not installed, the

following steps may help.

Use a commercial cleaner (such as "Jet Dry Dishwasher Cleaner^ once per month.

Always use a rinse aid.

Always use a high-quality, fresh detergent.

Use a detergent booster (such as "Glass Magic").

Odors

If the dishwasher is not used daily, you can run a rinse cycle

with the partial load daily until a full load is ready to run.

Run a vinegar rinse through the dishwasher by putting 2 cups

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.

of

The dishwasher may not be draining properly, see "Water remains in the tub/will not drain" in "Troubleshooting."

Noisy

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

Be sure the filters are properly installed. Normal water vale hissing may be heard periodically.

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.

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.

Proper installation will effect noise levels.

Food soils remain on dishes Be sure the dishwasher is loaded correctly. Improper loading can greatly decrease the washing performance (see "Dishwasher Use.") Check filter to ensure it is properly Installed. Clean it if needed. (See "Cleaning Instructions" in "Filtration System" for details.) Select the proper cycle and options for the type of soils. The Heavy Duty cycle with the ProScrub™ 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. Scrape food from dishes prior to loading (do not prerinse).

Dishes in the PROSCRUB0 wash are not clean Are the dishes loaded to face the PROSCRUB® spray jets? Load soiled dish surfaces to face the back of the dishwasher toward the PROSCRUB® spray jets. Tilt the dishes toward the back so water can drain from surfaces, and the lower spray arm can wash the item from below. NOTE: Loaded items may shift when dish racks are pushed into the dishwasher. Make sure dishes do not interfere with the spray arms, water feed true or PROSCRUB9 spray jets. Are items loaded sos they do not overlap? Load items only on row deep without any overlap so that the PROSCRUB® spray jets can reach all surfaces.

Did not sanitize 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).

Damage to dishware

Improper loading can cause dishes to become chipped or damaged. (See specific loading instructions within this guide.)

Blinking lights 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.

If the dishwasher still works and the Clean light blinks, it may be an indication that something is not working properly. Count the number of times the light blinks at the end of a cycle and see below for explanation.

1 Blink -Control problem Call for Service if it continues

6 Blinks - Wash motor problems Call for Service if it continues

8 Blinks - Low or no water detected See "Will Not Fill" in "Troubleshooting" section.

Cloudy or spotted dishware (and hard water solution)

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 ftem 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°CJ. Try using the Hi Temp and Sani Rinse options. To remove spotting, run a vinegar rinse through the dishwasher, wash and rinse the affected items, load into dishwasher, remove all silverware and metal items, put 2 cups of white vinegar in a glass measuring cup in the lower rack. Run a normal cycle with the Heated Dry option turn off. No detergent is needed.

Etching (permanent cloudiness) 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 for by prewashing. 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).

Leaking water 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.

Tub is discolored

Tomato-based foods can discolor the tub or dishware. A citrus-based cleaner can be used to clean.

High iron content in the water can discolor the tub.

Location Requirements

Grounded electrical supply required.

Do not run drain lines, water lines or electrical wiring where they can interfere with or contact dishwasher motor or legs. The location where the dishwasher will be installed must provide clearance between motor and flooring. Motor should not touch the floor.

Do not install dishwasher over carpeted flooring.

Shelter dishwasher and water lines leading to dishwasher against freezing. Damage from freezing is not covered by the warranty. A side panel kit is available from your dealer for installing your dishwasher at the end of your cabinetry. A moisture barrier accessory (Part Number 4396277) is available from your dealer for installing underneath the countertop, but is not required. Call 1-800-422-1230 to order.

Check location where dishwasher will be installed. The location must provide:

• easy access to water, electricity and drain.

• convenient access for loading and unloading dishes. Corner locations require a 2" (5.1 cm) minimum clearance between the side of the dishwasher door and the wall or cabinet.

• square opening for proper operation and appearance.

• cabinet front perpendicular to floor.

• level floor. (If floor at front of opening is not level with floor at rear of opening, shims may be needed to level dishwasher.)

Helpful Tip: Be sure to accurately measure dimensions and ensure dishwasher is level if the floor in the dishwasher opening is uneven (example: Flooring extends only partway into opening). NOTE: To avoid shifting during dishwasher operation, shims must be securely attached to the floor.

If dishwasher will be left unused for a period of time or in a location where it may be subject to freezing, have it winterized by authorized service personnel. Make sure pipes, wires and drain hose are within the shaded area shown in the "Product and Cabinet Opening Dimensions" section.

NOTE: Shaded area of cabinet walls show where utility connections may be installed.

*Wleasured from the lowest point on the underside of countertop. May be reduced to 33 7/8" (86 cm) by removing wheels from dishwasher.

linimum, measured from narrowest point of opening.

Drain Requirements

1 A new drain hose is supplied with your dishwasher. If this is not long enough, use a new drain hose with a maximum length of 12' (3.7 m) (Part Number 3385556) that meets all current AHAM/IAPMO test standards, is resistant to heat and detergent, and fits the 1" (2.5 cm) drain connector of the dishwasher.

Make sure to connect drain hose to waste tee or disposer inlet above drain trap in house plumbing and 20" (50.8 cm) minimum above the floor. It is recommended that the drain hose either be looped up and securely fastened to the underside of the counter, or be connected to an air gap.

• Make sure to use an air gap if the drain hose is connected to house plumbing lower than 20" (50.8 cm) above subfloor or floor.

• Use 1/2" minimum I.D. drain line fittings.

• If required, the air gap should be installed in accordance with the air gap installation instructions. When you are connecting the air gap a rubber hose (not provided) will be needed to connect to the waste tee or disposer inlet.

Water Supply Requirements

• A hot water line with 20-120 psi (138-862 kPa) water

pressure can be verified by a licensed plumber.

• 120°F (49°C) water at dishwasher.

• 3/8" O.D. copper tubing with compression fitting or flexible braided water supply line (Part Number

4396897RP)

NOTE: 1/2" minimum plastic tubing is not recommended.

• A 90° elbow with 3/8" N.P.T. external pipe threads on one end.

• Do not solder within 6" (15.2 cm) from water inlet valve.

Electrical Requirements

Be sure that the electrical connection and wire size are adequate and in conformance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 - latest edition and all local codes and ordinances.

Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Check that power supply cord does not touch dishwasher motor or lower part of dishwasher tub.

Reconnect

Power

1 Reconnect power ]_

Reconnect electrical power at the fuse box or circuit breaker box.

Check Operation

Read the Dishwasher User Instructions that came

with

your

dishwasher.

Check that all parts have been installed and no steps were skipped. Check that you have all tools used.

Start dishwasher and allow it to complete the shortest wash cycle. After the first 2 minutes unlatch door, wait 5 seconds, then open door. Check to see that there is water in the bottom of the dishwasher tub. Check that dishwasher is working properly.

If the dishwasher is not working properly, disconnect power or unplug dishwasher and see "If Dishwasher Does Not Operate" section.

If Dishwasher Does Not Operate

First try the solutions suggested here to possibly avoid the cost of a service call.

• Has the circuit breaker tripped or the house fuse blown?

• Is the door closed tightly and latched?

• Has the cycle been set correctly to start the dishwasher?

• Is the water turned on?

If none of these possible solutions work, call 1-800-422-1230, or in Canada, call 1-800-807-6777.

Additional Tips

Expect longer wash times. Your new dishwasher will average 2-3 hours per load, but use nearly 40% less energy than older models. Designed with a low wattage, low energy consumption motor, your dishwasher washes longer to ensure exceptional cleaning. Certain models are equipped with an optical water sensor so the first cycle will run longer to calibrate to optical sensor. Selecting certain options could increase cycle time past 3.5 hours.

Rinse Aid is necessary for good drying results:

This dishwasher is designed to be used with rinse aid for good drying performance and controlling hard water deposit buildup. Energy efficient dishwashers use less water and energy, so they depend on the water sheeting action of rinse aid for good drying performance.

Start/Resume light may flash:

When pressing Start/Resume, you must make sure the door is closed within 3 seconds. If you do not close the door within 3 seconds, the Start/Resume light will flash until you press it again. (You must also do this when adding a dish during the middle of a cycle.)
