Storing the Dishwasher
If you will not be using the dishwasher
during the summer
months,
turn off the water and power supply
to the dishwasher.
In the
winter, if the dishwasher
could
be exposed
to near freezing
temperatures
or is left in a seasonal
dwelling
such as a second
home or vacation
home, avoid water damage
by having your
dishwasher
winterized
by authorized
service personnel.

solutions suggested here or visit our website and reference FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

Is the dishwasher

sections
wash times. A delay automatically
occurs
in some
wash and rinse cycles
until the water reaches the proper
temperature.
This dishwasher
is equipped
with an optical
sensor wash that
detects water temperature,
soil and detergent
amount.
Wash
cycles are adjusted
based on what is sensed.
IMPORTANT:
The very first wash cycle after installation
in your
home will be adjusted
to include an additional
2 rinses. This
cycle must not be interrupted
for proper sensor
adjustment.
If
this adjustment
cycle is canceled
or stopped
before the Clean
light comes on at the end of the cycle, the next wash cycle will
repeat this sensor
adjustment.
