When using the dishwasher, follow basic precautions, including the following:
Read all instructions before using the dishwasher.
Use the dishwasher only for its intended function.
Use only detergents or rinse agents recommended for use in 
a dishwasher, and keep them out of the reach of children.
When loading items to be washed:
1) Locate sharp items so that they are not likely to damage 
the door seal; and
2) Load sharp knives with the handles up to reduce the risk 
of cut-type injuries.
Do not wash plastic items unless they are marked  
“dishwasher safe” or the equivalent. For plastic items not so 
marked, check the manufacturer's recommendations.
Do not touch the heating element during or immediately after 
Do not operate the dishwasher unless all enclosure panels 
are properly in place.
Do not tamper with controls.
Do not abuse, sit on, or stand on the door, lid, or dish racks 
of the dishwasher.
To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in 
or on the dishwasher.
Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in 
a hot water system that has not been used for two weeks or 
more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water 
system has not been used for such a period, before using 
the dishwasher turn on all hot water faucets and let the 
water flow from each for several minutes. This will release 
any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is flammable, 
do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.
Remove the door or lid to the washing compartment 
when removing an old dishwasher from service or 
discarding it.
For a grounded, cord-connected dishwasher:
The dishwasher must be grounded. In the event of a 
malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the risk of 
electric shock by providing a path of least resistance for 
electric current. The dishwasher is equipped with a cord 
having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding 
plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet 
that is installed and grounded in accordance with all local 
codes and ordinances.
 Improper connection of the equipment-
grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. 
Check with a qualified electrician or service representative 
if you are in doubt whether the dishwasher is properly 
grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the 
dishwasher; if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet 
installed by a qualified electrician.
For a permanently connected dishwasher:
The dishwasher must be connected to a grounded metal, 
permanent wiring system, or an equipment-grounding 
conductor must be run with the circuit conductors and 
connected to the equipment-grounding terminal or lead on 
the dishwasher.
Tip Over Hazard
Do not use dishwasher until completely installed.
Do not push down on open door.
Doing so can result in serious injury or cuts.
