Use liquid rinse aid. This will help to eliminate spotting and filming. Keep the rinse aid dispenser filled.
Use Jet-Dry Rinse Agent to remove the mineral residue that creates water spots and film on dishes, and begin enjoying spot-free table ready dishes after every wash.
Use fresh dishwasher detergents only.
Have a qualified person raise the water heater thermostat setting. For best results, water should be 120oF as it enters the dishwasher
If the water temperature is higher than 160oF, lower the water heater thermostat setting to 120oF. If extremely high-temperature water is used, water tends to leak at the very beginning of the cycle in a cold dishwasher.
Make sure the dishwasher is level. The dishwasher must be supported by the leveling legs and rear wheels and must be flat on the floor.
Check for oversudsing, which may appear as a leak from the corners. Make sure proper detergent is being used. Only use automatic dish soap.
If no dishes were in the lower rack, the dishwasher may leak because of the spray directly hitting the door.
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched.
Check the drain hose for kinks or wear. Replace the hose if it is kinked or damaged.
If the sink is not draining well, a plumber may need to be contacted. Most dishwashers connect to the sink drain. If the sink drain is clogged, the dishwasher can’t pump out water.
For many dishwashers, the drain hose is connected to the disposal and the knockout plug must be removed from the disposal inlet. Run the disposal to clear the drain system.
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. Check for obstructions (spoons, etc.) interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure.
Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in. Make sure the ground fault interruptor (GFI) on countertop is not tripped.
Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.
The motor may have stopped due to an overload. If this is the case, the motor will automatically reset itself within 5-10 minutes.
Wash surfaces with warm, soapy water using liquid detergent or an all-purpose cleaner and a nonabrasive sponge. Always rub evenly in the direction of the grain.
Rinse with clean water and dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
Use a clean, dry towel to polish the surface in the direction of the grain until it shines.
IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the finish, do not use soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive or harsh cleaners, any cleaning product containing chlorine bleach, steel-wool pads, gritty wash cloths or certain paper towels.
