Does Your Dishwasher Have
an Air Gap?

An air gap protects your dishwasher
against water backing up into it if a drain
clogs. The air gap is not a part of the
dishwasher. It is not covered by your
warranty. Not all plumbing codes require
air gaps, so you may not have one.

The air gap is easy to clean.

Turn off the dishwasher and lift off
the chrome cover.

Remove the plastic cap and clean with
a toothpick.



Two types of
air gaps

Caring for the dishwasher.

To clean the control panel, use a lightly dampened
cloth, then dry thoroughly. To clean the exterior,
use a good appliance polish wax.

Never use sharp objects, scouring pads or harsh
cleaners on any part of the dishwasher.

Protect Against Freezing

If your dishwasher is left in an unheated
place during the winter, ask a service
technician to:

Cut off electrical power to the
dishwasher. Remove fuses or trip
circuit breaker.

Turn off the water supply and
disconnect the water inlet line
from the water valve.

Drain water from the water inlet line
and water valve. (Use a pan to catch
the water.)

Reconnect the water inlet line to the
water valve.
