Prior to running the first cycle of your new KitchenAid dishwashing unit, take out all packaging items. Go over this Use and Care Guide manual carefully for first-time users. You will learn important security information and the following tips on how to use your KitchenAid dishwasher:
- Cleanse aid is important for item drying. Ensure to fill the rinse aid dispenser before operating your dishwashing unit. Each filling will last around two months based on your usage.
- Scrub some food soil and solid things such as toothpicks or bones from plates and utensils.
- Examine the spray arm and the drain. See to it that the drain filter is washed with the filter plate, and see to it that the spray arm can turn around the center part.
- Carefully place the dishes into the dishwasher. Load the unit with space in between in order for the water to get to the dirty surfaces. See to it that nothing prevents the spray arm from turning freely
- Put some detergent. Regularly use quality detergent. Only utilize powdered detergent prescribed for KitchenAid dishwashers. Avoid tablet or liquid detergents. Cycle performance may negatively affect if you use anything other than powdered detergent.
- Run hot water in the sink until it feels hot enough. Then switch off the water.
- Tap the Power button in the front of the drawer to switch the unit on or off. Once the drawer is opened, it will automatically turn on in less than a minute despite the Power button not being tapped. When no program choice is set, it will switch off again.
- Tap the Cycle button or the HI-TEMP button on the top of the drawer to choose the chosen wash cycle. Continuously tap the Cycle button or the HI-TEMP button, and the indicators will activate with the different cycles until the preferred cycle is set. When you run the dishwasher, it will recall the previous cycle set.
- Press drawer hard closed. Push the Start / Resume on the front of the drawer to run a cycle.
- It’s important to note when the dishwashing unit is running and a power interruption occurs, it will not run. You may not open the drawer when this happens. Once the power supply is back, the unit will resume in the same portion of the cycle before it is interrupted. In order to end the cycle while operating, tap the Power button. Then the water in the drawer will be drained.
