When you load the dishes, reach under and spin the aerator arm to make sure it rotates freely and nothing hangs down to block it.
Rapid Eco setting is the shortest and does a fine job.
Only needs about 1 Tablespoon of detergent, gel works best.
Does a good job, but doesn't handle too much loose or caked on food on dishes. I trap the previous load's water in one side of the sink and use it to presoak anything that is extra tough--lazy but effective.
Sweep food off trap screen after every load.
After about 3 or 4 years, if your unit (& this can happen to ANY dishwasher!) suddenly pours water out the door when filling, don't despair! Don't throw it in the landfill, don't waste time replacing the door gasket. Just shut it off, shut off the water, turn on the unit so it will pump out the water and UNPLUG it so you can't shock yourself working on it. Then look up online how to clean out the FLOAT MECHANISM. It gets gunked up after awhile and just a little vinegar and a toothbrush and you're good to go for another 3 or 4 years.
Take off the front lower panel and lift the side panel closest to the hoses. Look for a little box with a removable lid and a lever coming out of it (this shuts off the water when it reaches the correct level). CAREFULLY open it and gently clean out the gunk so the float can freely move up and down. Fill it halfway with vinegar once clean and replace the lid. Tightly close the box with a ziptie so it is airtight. Done!
Hope this helps!
I like that the manual lists the time and water and energy consumption for each cycle. Based on my very rough calculations (I'm a science guy), it uses about as much water as hand washing, but more electricity. One thing I can't find anywhere in the manual is what the light on the left side is for.
One gripe: every so often, if the dishwasher is running and I pause it to put a dish in, when I close the door it will drain a fair amount of the water out, even though it's in the middle of the cycle. It doesn't happen every time and when it does I just pour some hot water back in but it is annoying. I figure it's a programming error.
It's got lots of cycles but it cleans really well on the lightest two. One of those has a drying cycle and the other doesn't. I can't imagine needing to use the Heavy or even Normal cycles.
Make sure nothing is blocking the door on the detergent dispenser! I've loaded it with plates in front of that before and it had trouble opening. Also, while I don't need to use a rinse aid, apparently white vinegar does just as good of a job as Jet-Dri and it's basically free and not full of scary chemicals.
All in all, I'm quite happy with the dishwasher and I'm very glad I bought it. If your friends make fun of you for having it, have them hand wash your dishes!
I spent about eight hours at various plumbing and home-improvement stores - trying every single possible connection and asking for help from knowledgeable plumbers - but ultimately it involved picking up every single piece of pipe and tubing in the store and trying to match them together.
Here are the labels on the packets:
One Brass Pipe Tee T Connector 1/2" FIP
Three Brass Pipe Hex Nipples 1/2" MIP
One Dishwasher Elbow 3/8" OD x 3/4" GH
NPT= national pipe thread = MIP= male iron pipe = FIP=female iron pipe. All use the same threads, at least here in the USA.
GH = garden hose
OD = outside diameter, seems to be what is used on faucet supply lines.
Attach the nipples to the T connector as shown in the picture (I used plumbers thread-seal tape.)
Then you need the connecting faucet supply lines. The two lines going into the T connect to your hot and cold water lines. Just buy lines where one end is is 1/2 in MIP/FIP/NPT and the other end attaches to a system that will branch water from your wall outlet (sorry I didn't keep those packets - let me know if you need more details on this and I can check to see what I used.) The line going into the dishwasher has one end 1/2 in MIP/FIP/NPT and the other end attaches to the dishwasher elbow 3/8in OD. The other end of the dishwasher elbow attaches to the dishwasher. (Too much detail probably!)
Then I cut a hole in the drain pipe above the trap and the dishwasher drains directly into the drain.Read more ›
