Before You Start

Don’t Prerinse. Simply scrape off any bones or

large food particles.

• If connected to a food waste disposer, make certain the

disposer is empty before starting the dishwasher.

Scrape off tomato-based food soils (see page 8).

Remove certain foods (such as mustard, mayonnaise,

lemon juice, vinegar, salt or dressings) from stainless
steel flatware as soon as possible.
These foods may
cause rusting and pitting if allowed to remain in contact
with the surface for an extended period of time.

General Recommendations

Place all items in the racks so they are separated

and facing center.

• Items can be centered behind a single tine or loaded at

an angle to maximize space.

• Load items so they do not rest over the top of the wash


• Avoid blocking the upper and lower spray arms by not

allowing items to extend beyond the racks.

loaded in this rack. Do not load glasses over the tines.

up or down for loading flexibility. Fold it down to hold
long-handled knives, spatulas and spoons or short items
like cups or juice glasses. Fold it up for taller items like
glasses, bowls, plates, etc.

The Vari-Lock

Snugger (select models) on the left

secures lightweight items in place. It can be adjusted by
grasping the wavy wire and rotating it left to snug items
against the outer rack or to the right to rest on top of light
items. Do not load items on top of the wire.

The wavy wire on the Vari-Lock

Snugger (select models)

and the Stack-Rack is designed to hold stemware in place.
Taller stemware will fit better on the right side as the
upper rack is deeper on this side.
