Troubleshooting

Before calling for service, review this list. It may save you both time and expense. This list includes common experiences that are not the result of defective workmanship or material in your dishwasher.

Food Soils Left on Dishes

  1. Choose another cycle for longer washing time.
  2. Choose the Hi-Temp Wash option.
  3. Check rack loading section for proper loading-avoid nesting items.
  4. Home water pressure may be too low – should be 20 to 120 pounds per square inch (psi).
  5. Check incoming water temperature. It should be at least 120oF (49oC). (See Factors Affecting Performance.)
  6. Check water hardness. For extremely hard water, it may be necessary to install a water softener. (See Detergent Chart).
  7. Use Fresh Detergent.
  8. Make sure items are not blocking the spray arms, preventing them from rotating.

Dishes not Dry




  1. Select heat dry option.
