IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING: When using your dishwasher, follow basic precautions, including the following:

For your Safety

  • Use your dishwasher only as instructed in this Use and Care Manual.
  • This Manual does not cover every possible condition and situation that may occur. Use common sense and caution when installing, operating, and maintaining any appliance.
  •  NSF-certified residential dishwashers are not intended for licensed food establishments.
  • THE DISHWASHER MUST BE ELECTRICALLY GROUNDED. This appliance must be connected to a ground 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 this appliance. Read the Installation Instructions for details.
  • This dishwasher is designed to operate on regular house current (120V, 60Hz). Use a circuit equipped with a 15-ampere fuse or circuit breaker. Use a 20-ampere fuse if the dishwasher is connected to a food disposer.
  • Do not operate the dishwasher unless all enclosure panels are in their proper place.
  •  Keep young children and infants away from the dishwasher when it is operating.
  • Do not let children abuse, sit, stand, or play on the door or racks of a dishwasher.
  • To reduce the risk of injury, do not allow children to play in or in the dishwasher.
  • Use only detergents and rinse agents recommended for use in a dishwasher.
  • Store dishwasher detergent and rinse agents out of the reach of children.
  • If the dishwasher drains into a food disposer, make sure the disposer is empty before running the dishwasher.
  • Do not wash plastic items unless marked: “Dishwasher Safe” or equivalent. Check with the manufacturer for recommendations, if not marked. Items that are not marked dishwasher safe may melt and create a potential fire hazard.
  •  When loading items to be washed:
    • Locate sharp items and knives so that they are not likely to damage the door seal or tub.
    • Load sharp items and knives with the handles up to reduce the risk of cut-type injuries.
  • Do not tamper with controls.
  • Use care unloading the dishware when the SANITIZE option has been selected. Contents may be hot to the touch immediately after the end of the cycle.
  •  Under certain conditions, hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for 2 weeks or more. HYDROGEN GAS IS EXPLOSIVE. If the hot water system has not been used for such a period, before using a dishwasher, turn on all hot water faucets and let water flow from each for several minutes. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. HYDROGEN GAS IS FLAMMABLE. Do not smoke or use an open flame during this time.
  • Do not store or use combustible materials, gasoline, or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
  • Disconnect electrical power to the dishwasher before servicing.
  • Repairs should be done by a qualified technician.
  • To avoid entrapment and/or suffocation, remove the door or door latch mechanism from any dishwasher that is discarded or not in use.

WARNING To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury when using your dishwasher, follow the above basic precautions.

WARNING These symbols will help alert you to such dangers as personal injury, burns, fire, and electrical shock.

NOTE The dishwasher is programmed to remember your last cycle so you do not have to reset each time. To start the dishwasher using the same cycle and options selected on the previous wash, just press the START/CANCEL pad.

NOTE Not all cycles and options are available on all models.

NOTE Very Important Information – Read Before Operating Your Dishwasher! Normal Operating Sounds This dishwasher does not sound like most dishwashers – IT’S QUIETER.

Your Direct Feed Wash System dishwasher uses energy-efficient motors for the wash and drain portions of the cycle you select. Each cycle has a series of water fills and drains for washing and rinsing dishes. As each cycle begins, you may or may not- hear the drain motor. The next sound you will hear is the splashing water as it

NOTE  Why Energy Efficient Units run long cycles: Several factors are important to washing dishware. The energy use of the dishwasher was reduced by applying more of the factors that don’t use so much energy and less of the ones that use more. As a result, you will see that the wash cycles take longer.

FEATURES AT A GLANCE

Your dishwasher cleans by spraying a mixture of hot water and detergent through the spray arms against soiled surfaces. First, the dishwasher drains for a few seconds to remove soil dropped while loading, then fills with water covering the filter area. Water is then pumped through the spray arms. Soil particles go through and across the filter and down the drain as the water is pumped out. This series of steps is repeated as needed. The number of water fills varies with the cycle being used.

Features may vary according to the model

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care-1

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care (2)

NOTE Your dishwasher uses a DishSenseTM Technology to understand how much food is on the dishes and then adjusts the cycle accordingly.

CAUTION

  • Property Damage Hazard Before starting the dishwasher be sure that the water is connected and turned on.  Failure to do so may cause damage to the pump seal and result in water leakage.
  • Wash Cycle Selections Cycle times are approximate and will vary with the options selected. Hot water is necessary to activate dishwasher detergent and melt fatty food soils. An automatic sensor will check the incoming water temperature and, if it is not hot enough, the cycle will be lengthened for automatic water heating in the main wash and final rinse of all cycles. This happens even when the HI-TEMP WASH option has not been selected. When HI-TEMP WASH is selected, an even higher temperature will be reached to handle heavier soil loads.
  • Recommended Cycle for typical use: The Normal cycle with its factory default options of normal temperature and heated dry together provides the best all-around performance. This cycle selection is recommended for everyday use and is suitable for a large range of both dish load sizes and food quantities remaining on those dishes.

Option Selections

  • Wash Pressure The programmed cycles default to the “surge” pressure option which varies the pressure optimally for the cycle’s intended normal use. If, for some special circumstance, either a very low “spray” or very high “scour” pressure is desired that may be selected. Due to wash cycle optimization, some pressure options are not selectable in all wash cycles.
  • Wash Temp The programmed cycles default to the “normal” temperature option, to choose HI-TEMP or SANITIZE press the WASH TEMP pad again.
  • Sanitize Option To sanitize your dishes and glassware, select SANITIZE option, by pressing the WASH TEMP pad. When selected, the light will come on and remain on until the end of the cycle. The water temperature in the final rinse will be raised to 155oF (68oC) and will maintain that temperature for 9 minutes. This option is available in Heavy and Normal Cycles. Only these sanitization cycles have been designed to meet NSF requirements. The cycle time will be extended until the proper water temperature is reached. Washing action will continue during the water heating delay. For best results, the incoming water temperature should be at least 120oF (49oC). The sanitizing criteria may not be satisfied if there is an interruption of the cycle, power failure, or if the incoming water temperature is below 120oF (49oC). To turn off the SANITIZE option, press the Wash Temp pad. The SANITIZE light will turn off.
  • Heat Dry The HEATED DRY option in combination with rinse aid will enhance drying performance. The HEATED DRY option is available on all cycles.
  • Air Dry The AIR DRY option will reduce the temperature in the hot rinse of the selected wash cycle. This option will slightly decrease energy usage but will increase the likelihood that dishware will not be dry.
  • My Favorite Cycle The MY FAVORITE CYCLE option allows you to program your preferred cycle and options into one button. Once Programmed, simply press the MY FAVORITE CYCLE button followed by the START CANCEL pad will select the programmed cycle and options.
    To Program the MY FAVORITE CYCLE button:

     

    • Select your preferred cycle and options
    •  Hold the MY FAVORITE CYCLE button for 3 seconds.
    • The LED over the MY FAVORITE pad turns on indicating the MY FAVORITE CYCLE option has been programmed. To change the MY FAVORITE CYCLE option simply repeat steps one and two above.
  • Delay Start The DELAY START option allows you to automatically delay starting your dishwasher from 1-24 hours. To activate press the DELAY START pad until the desired delay time shows in the STATUS window and press START. To cancel the DELAY START option and begin the cycle before the delay period is over, press the START/CANCEL pad until the status window shows cycle duration. Press START/CANCEL again and close the door.
  • Child Lock Controls To prevent children from accidentally changing the dishwasher cycle or starting the dishwasher, lock the dishwasher controls by pressing the DELAY START pad for 3 seconds and releasing. The status window will display “loc”. To unlock the controls, press the DELAY START pad until “loc” goes out.
  • To Cancel a Cycle To cancel a cycle at any time, open the door and press the START/CANCEL pad until the 1-minute drain feature is initiated. Close the door and the drain cycle will begin. You will hear a tone for the start and completion of the drain cycle. When the door is opened, the last cycle selected will be displayed. If desired, a new cycle can now be selected by pressing the START/CANCEL pad and upon closing the door the cycle will begin.
  • Status WindowFrigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care (3)
    The STATUS window, available on some models, indicates the following activity:
  • Several delayed start hours. The last hour will count down in minutes.
  • Close the dishwasher door. The status indicator lights will also flash to indicate the current cycle status.
  • Several minutes left in the cycle (1-199).
  • In the unlikely event the dishwasher malfunctions, the STATUS window may display one of the following codes: “i10” – refers to the dishwasher not running or filling and trying to solve the problem “i20” – refers to the dishwasher not draining properly and trying to solve the problem. If, after the check, the problem remains, or if the status window shows other error codes, contact the Frigidaire Customer Care Center at 1-800-944-9044. They will be able to assist in troubleshooting the problem and/or locating an authorized service technician if needed.
  • Status Indicator Lights The CLEAN light will remain on until the door is opened.
    When the SANITIZE option is selected and the criteria are met, the Sanitized indicator will display and remain on until the door is opened. If the sanitization criteria are not achieved, the indicator will not display. This can happen if the cycle is interrupted or if the sanitization temperature cannot be reached due to incoming water temperature significantly below 1200F.
  • Green Light When the GREEN LIGHT illuminates on the floor this indicates that the wash cycle is complete.

PREPARING AND LOADING DISHES

  • Dish Preparation Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits, toothpicks, etc. The continuously filtered wash fluid will remove the remaining food particles. Burned-on foods should be loosened before loading. Empty liquids from glasses and cups.
    Foods such as mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar, lemon juice, and tomato-based products may cause discoloration of stainless steel and plastics if allowed to sit for a long period. Unless the dishwasher is to be operated at once, it is best to pre-rinse or use the rinse-only cycle to rinse off these food soils.

     

    • Load racks so that large items do not prevent the detergent dispenser from opening.
    • Check the manufacturer’s recommendations before washing the items in question.
    • If the dishwasher drains into a Food dispenser, be sure the disposer is empty before starting the dishwasher.Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-5
  • Loading the Upper Rack Features and appearance of racks and silverware baskets may vary from your model.
    The upper rack is designed for flexibility in loading a wide variety of items including cups, glasses, stemware, small plates, bowls, etc.

     

    • Load glasses and plastic items in the upper rack only.
    • Load items with open ends facing down for better cleaning and draining.
    • Damage may occur if delicate items touch each other during dishwasher operation.
    • Long-handled knives and utensils can be placed on the upper rack.
    • Be sure nothing protrudes through the bottom of the rack to block the rotation of the middle spray arm.Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-6
  • 8 place settings standard loading patternFrigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-7
  • 10 place settings standard loading patternFrigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-8
  • 12 place settings standard loading pattern

Adjustable Upper Rack The top rack height can be easily adjusted to accommodate loading taller dishes in either rack. To raise the rack to the upper position, lift the rack until both sides are at the same height and the rack will secure in place. Ensure that the rack remains level from front to back with both sides at the same height. To lower the rack lift the rack slightly then push down and release.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-9

Fold-down Tines Upper Rack The fold-down tines in the upper rack make it easy to load those extra large and hard-to-fit items. The tines may be left up for normal use or folded down for more flexible loading.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-11


Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-10

Loading the Bottom Rack Features and appearance of racks and silverware baskets may vary from your model.
The bottom rack is best for plates, saucers, bowls, and cookware. Large items should be placed along the edge so they do not block the spray arm rotation. For best results, place bowls, casseroles, and saucepans with the soiled surfaces facing down or toward the center. Tilt slightly for better drainage. Make sure tall items do not block spray arm rotation. Be sure pan handles do not protrude through the bottom of the rack and block the spray arm rotation.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-12

Fold-down Tines Bottom Rack The fold-down tines in the lower and upper racks make it easy to load those extra large and hard-to-fit items. The tines may be left up for normal use or folded down for more flexible loading.

 

Cup Shelf/Stemware Holders The cup shelf holder can be folded down to be used to load two levels of cups, juice glasses, and other short items or folded down both and used for long items such as utensils and spatulas. Fold up to load tall glasses.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-14

The Stemware holder is used to securely hold your wine glasses in place for the best wash. To properly secure your glass simply press the stem of the glass into the center of the Cupshelf the rubber pieces will secure around the stem to hold the glass in place.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-15

Soft Grip Rack The Soft Grip Rack is used to secure in place glassware and those plastic items that may move around with the water from the spray arm.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-16

Loading the Silverware Basket

CAUTION Load sharp items (knives, skewers, etc.) pointing down. Failure to do so may result in injury.

  • Features and appearance of racks and silverware baskets may vary from your model.
  • Load the silverware basket while it is in the bottom rack or take the basket out for loading on a counter or table.
  • In some models, small items like baby bottle caps, jar lids, corn cob holders, etc., can be placed in a covered section. Close the cover to hold small items in place.
  • Use suggested loading patterns, as shown, to increase the washability of the silverware.
  • Be sure nothing protrudes through the bottom of the basket or rack to block the spray arm.
  • Do not mix silver and stainless to avoid damaging the silver finish.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-17

When covers are up, mix items in each section of the basket with some pointing up and some down to avoid nesting. Water spray cannot reach nested items.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-18

To add or remove items after the wash cycle starts:

  • Unlatch the door and wait a few seconds until the wash action stops before opening.
  • Add the item and wait a few seconds to allow cold air to slowly expand inside the dishwasher.
  • Close the door firmly to latch and resume the cycle.

DISHWASHER DISPENSER & DETERGENTS

Filling the Detergent Dispenser The detergent dispenser has a main wash cup where you will add your detergent or detergent tab.

  • Use only fresh automatic dishwashing detergent. Other detergents may cause oversudsing.
  • When using an automatic dishwashing detergent tablet, place one tablet in the main wash cup and close it.
  • Add detergent just before starting the cycle.
  • Store detergent in a cool, dry location. Moist or caked detergent may not dissolve properly.

CAUTION The use of industrial-grade detergent can damage parts of the dishwasher leading to damage to the unit and surrounding property. Use only household-grade automatic dishwasher detergents.

NOTE Hard water may cause lime deposit buildup on the interior of the dishwasher. For cleaning instructions see the “Removing Spots and Film” section.

How many detergents to use

The amount of detergent to use depends on the water’s hardness. Water hardness is measured in grains per gallon. Using too little detergent can result in poor cleaning and hard water filming or spotting. Using too much detergent in soft water can cause etching to some glassware which is surface damage that appears like a film but cannot be wiped off. Your local water company, water softener company, or county extension agent can tell you the water hardness in your area.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-19

NOTE Detergent tablets and All-In-One packs may not dissolve completely if used with the QUICK WASH cycles. If one of these products is used, place the tab or pack directly on the bottom of the tub in a corner before starting the dishwasher, rather than placing these products in the dispenser.

NOTE To achieve the best results from your dishwasher, visit www.dishwashingexpert.com for general tips regarding the performance and operation of your dishwasher.

Dosage of detergent

Place a single detergent tablet or packet into the detergent dispenser compartment.

(9-12 grains)

Amount (teaspoons) 4 teaspoons 6 teaspoons 8 teaspoons
Dispenser cup level: First Line Second Line Full

NOTE For very hard water, detergent alone may not be enough. A water softener is recommended to improve water quality and dishwashing performance. Try adding more detergent at the beginning of the main wash portion of the cycle. As a rule, use 1 teaspoon for each grain above 12. Unlatch the door, open slowly, and add detergent to the bottom of the tub. Close the door to latch and the dishwasher will continue through the cycle.

FACTORS AFFECTING PERFORMANCE

Rinse Aid Rinse aid greatly improves drying, and reduces water spots, and filming. With it water “sheets” off dishes rather than forming water droplets that cling and leave spots.

A dispenser, located next to the detergent cup, automatically releases a measured amount of rinse aid during the last rinse. If spotting and poor drying are problems, increase the amount of rinse aid dispensed. The indicator will be dark when full and will show clear when it is time to refill.

  • To add liquid rinse aid, open the cover. Pour in rinse aid until liquid touches the indicated fill level. Close the cover.
  • Do not overfill since this can cause oversudsing. Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth.
  • The dispenser holds enough for 11 to 66 washes, depending on the setting.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-20

IMPORTANT Before starting a cycle, run hot water to clear cool water from the pipe.

The HEAT DRY option in combination with the rinse aid will enhance drying performance. The energy required to use the HEAT DRY option costs pennies per cycle. You may choose not to select the HEAT DRY option; however, you will have items in your dish load that will not be completely dry at the end of the cycle.

How to adjust the rinse aid dosage Press and hold the RINSE ONLY and DELAY START ad for 5 seconds until the display shows the rinse aid level. Pressing the DELAY START pad increases the increment level (L0-L6). Once the rinse-aid level reaches L6, the display will start back at level L0. Pressing the START button or just pausing for a few seconds confirms the rinse aid level setting: the display shows the duration of the cycle.

Water Pressure The hot water line to the dishwasher must provide water pressure between 20 and 120 psi. Low water pressure may occur when laundry or showers are in operation. If you experience poor wash performance you may need to wait until water use is reduced before starting the dishwasher.

Water Temperature Hot water is needed for the best dishwashing and drying results. Water entering the dishwasher should be at least 120oF (49oC) to give satisfactory results.

To check the water temperature entering the dishwasher:

  • Turn on the hot water faucet nearest the dishwasher for several minutes to clear cool water from the pipes.
  • Hold a candy or meat thermometer in the water stream to check the temperature.
  • If the temperature is below 120oF (49oC), have a qualified person raise the water heater thermostat setting.

CARE AND CLEANING

Outside – Occasionally wipe with a mild nonabrasive detergent and water. Rinse and dry.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-21

Care of Drain Air Gap drain air gap was installed for your built-in dishwasher, check to make sure it is clean so the dishwasher will drain properly. A drain air gap is usually mounted on the countertop and can be inspected by removing the cover. This is not part of your dishwasher and is not covered by warranty.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-22

Clean the Cylinder Fine Filter The Cylinder Fine Filter is designed to collect some big items such as broken glass, bones, and pits. The Cylinder Fine Filter needs to be cleaned to maximize wash performance. Remove the Cylinder Fine Filter as shown, rotate it counterclockwise, lift it out, empty, and clean it by rinsing it under running water and replacing it. The use of a sponge or bottle brush may be necessary to remove all food residue.

Clean the Coarse Filter Take out the Cylinder Fine Filter and remove the Coarse Filter from the dishwasher tub bottom. Flush the Coarse Filter by holding it under running water and replacing it.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Use & Care Manual-23
