Dishwasher Care

Load properly following manual suggestions. Use only dishwasher detergent in recommended amounts. Do not put any other cleaning compound inside dishwasher, as it may suds and interfere with dishwashing action. Store detergent in a dry, cool place, and do not keep extra packages on hand for a long time as it takes up moisture from the air and then loses cleaning ability.

A dishwasher should always be plugged into a grounded outlet; do not use an extension cord.

If hot water has not been used in house for 2 weeks or longer, open all hot water faucets and let them run several minutes before using the dishwasher or any other electrical appliance connected to hot water. Do not smoke or light any flame while the faucets are running; hydrogen gas which is flammable and explosive may build up in water heater and hot water pipes if hot water is not used for a long time.

If seasonal home is to be closed without heat for winter, winterize dishwasher.
