Care and Cleaning
The dishwasher interior is normally self-cleaning. Periodically
check the bottom of the dishwasher tub to see if any large par-
ticles have not gone through the strainer portion of the module.
Wipe the edge of the inner door liner to remove any food
soil splashes which occurred during loading.
The color from some tomato-based food soils has been
known to occasionally adhere to today's dishwasher tubs,
causing temporary discoloration.
When washing a load of dishes soiled with tomato sauce:
• Scrape excess tomato-based food soils off of dishes,
prior to loading. Do not prewash the dishes, however.
• Run the Heavy Wash cycle.
The front of the dishwasher can be cleaned with a soft
damp cloth and liquid spray cleaner. Do not use abrasive
powders or cleaning pads.

white vinegar and water, Formula 409 Glass and Surface

detergent or baking soda and select the Normal Wash

ensure most of the water is removed. Last, disconnect the
electrical supply and prop open the door. (See Important
