Selecting a Wash Cycle

  1. When you touch Power, the most recently finished cycle will light up.

  2. Close the dishwasher door and then choose an appropriate cleaning cycle.

    • Auto Cycle: Detects the level of soil and automatically initiates the optimal cycle after a few minutes of operation.

    • Normal Cycle: Recommended for typical daily wash of normally soiled items. 

    • Heavy Cycle: Best for cleaning items that are heavily soiled with lots of grease.

    • Express 60 Cycle: Cleans dishes faster. It’s ideal for lighter loads of cups, cutlery, bowls, and plates. This cycle completes all washing and drying in just one hour.

  3. Touch Start.
