To reduce the risk of injury when loading items to be
washed, sharp or pointed items should be located with
the handles up. Also, load sharp items so they are not
likely to damage the door seal.


Do not touch the heating element on the bottom of the
tub during or at the completion of a cycle. It will be hot.


Use only detergents and rinse additives designed for an
automatic dishwasher. Never use soap, laundry deter-
gent, or hand washing detergent in your dishwasher.
Keep these products out of reach of children.

10. Do not sit, stand on or abuse the door or dish racks of

the dishwasher.

11. Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be pro-

duced 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,
turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from
each for several minutes. This will release any accumu-
lated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable, do not
smoke or use an open flame during this process.

12. Do not wash plastic items unless marked “dishwasher

safe” or the equivalent. For plastic items not so marked,
check the manufacturer’s recommendations.

13. Do not tamper with controls.

14. To prevent accidental child entrapment and suffocation

risks, always remove the door to the washing compart-
ment when removing an old dishwasher from service or
discarding it.

15. Use caution when unloading the dishwasher. Dishes will

be hot if unloaded shortly after a cycle has completed.
