Hello Nicki! To turn off Control Lock, press and hold CONTROL LOCK or 4 HOUR DELAY (depending on model) for 3 seconds. The light turns off.

Can this adjusted/modified to be run as a free standing unit; with a plug in and faucet hose hookup?

Does it have automatic filter clean or do you have to manually clean the filter

Asked by sherrie April 29, 2018

Answers

The filter does need to be cleaned manually. The Use and Care Guide (Link on this page under “Info & Guides”) that explains the filtration system starting on page 15. They recommend you only scrape before loading (No re-wash and/or pre-rinse will conserve the water and energy that you would have used to prepare your dishes. This will also save you time and effort.) Hard water causes white residue on my plastic and stainless steel filters and I find that soaking in White vinegar and water (50/50) cleans without scraping and makes the screen pretty. I do a 50/50 white vinegar/water tub wash as needed but you have to load vinegar right after FIRST drain pump out before it fills the first time, in that first two minutes of start time.

I can’t push dishwasher back into opening. It is not flush. Black gasket on outside and too short. Please help.

If the rinse aid leaves the compartment as soon as you add it, I bet you have a defective compartment. I fill up the compartment when it's running low on rinse and I don't have to add again for another couple of weeks. You don't add "per load" - you just fill it up and let the machine use what it needs. Those numbers 1 - 4 are precisely for the machine to use more or less, 4 being more, I think.

Although I have only run one load through the washer I have noticed a few distinct features. I deliberately did not do more than a quick rinse of the dishes to remove excess food particles to see the cleaning process. Loading the washer was easy and a nice surprise was the height of the lower rack which allows larger pot lids and dinner plates to stack with room to spare, the silverware rack keeps the utensils separated for effective cleaning and drying, and the overall angles and dividers really help to keep glasses and smaller items separate. The wash cycle was whisper quiet- easy to be in the kitchen when the washer was running so I can continue to entertain guests, and the results were impressive. I like that there are quick cycles and extreme clean cycles, although I have not tested them.

The only complaint and it's a minor one, is that you can brush up against the panel and can accidently turn it on. Otherwise it cleans very well and is very quiet.

Disappointed with Dirty Dishes
We have had this dishwasher for just over 2 months. We noticed a problem right away, dishes came out dirty, wet, and the Cascade pod was almost intact at the bottom of the dishwasher. The technicians first replaced a faulty pump. The next load or two had the same results as before. We also noticed although we tried the Heat Dry setting, there was no heat. Technicians came and told us the problem was our water wasn’t hot enough and suggested we run the hot water before starting the dishwasher. We also ensure we had the recommended rinse agent and detergent. We still had dirty, wet dishes and soap deposits. The technicians came again, ran diagnostics and all came back ok. They then replaced the control panel. Although most of the dishes are dry, Even on the tough setting, with Sani rinse option and high temp options selected, I am disappointed to find dirty dishes over and over again. I’m attaching some photos of examples, including this evening. I regret ever buying this machine.
