(continued)
Etching
Using
too much
detergent
in soft or

causes
this film that
cannot
be removed.

is switching
between
the lower and
middle

disposer,
make
sure the disposer
is empty.

has been
removed
from

disposer
inlet.
Check

water
heating
delay?
Has the

been
selected?
Dishwasher

move
up and

section.)
Dishwasher
Has
an
Odor
Soiled
dishes

too long can
create
an odor. Use

properly.
(See

Stains
on Tub Interior
Washing
large
amounts
of dishware
with
tomato
based
soil can cause
a pink/orange
appearance.
This will not affect
performance
and will gradually
fade
over time.
Pre-rinsing
or using the Rinse/Hold
cycle
will reduce
the
chance
of staining.
Using
Cool
Dry option
will lessen
staining.
