Safety Instructions


Close the dishwasher door and select the cycle and desired enhancements. Touch the START/RESET pad to begin the cycle. Water fill begins, and approximately 60 seconds later the wash action begins.

NOTE: The dishwasher remembers your last cycle so you don’t have to reprogram each time. When the dishwasher door is fully closed, the control panel lights will display the last settings you selected.


The CLEAN light is illuminated when a wash cycle is complete. The light will stay ON until the door is opened and then closed and latched or when a pad is pressed with the door closed. You can turn off the CLEAN light by pressing any pad when the door is latched.

If you don’t want to change any of the settings, simply touch the START/RESET pad to begin the cycle.

If the door is closed, the indicator lights will turn

off if the START/RESET pad is not selected within two minutes. To activate the display, open and close the door or press any pad.

Also, if a power failure occurs, NORMAL and HEATED DRY will automatically be programmed. Make any new selections and touch the START/RESET pad to begin the cycle.
