Dishwashers of the types built into the sink unit or work surface,
with a permanent drain and power and water connections. Portable
dishwashers that require no installation are also manufactured.
Both dishwashers types are available in the 24" or 48"
size. The permanently installed dishwashers have either a front
or a top opening for loading and have either a cabinet design or
an under-counter design. The dishes are cleaned by forcing hot water
over them. A detergent is added to the water to remove food and
grease. The dishes are rinsed with clear water and are dried by
the heating element.
The five basic dishwashers components of all types of automatic
dishwashers are: an dishwasher impeller; upper and lower dishwasher
loading racks; an dishwasher automatic timer; a dishwasher heating
unit; and a dishwasher timer motor.
Impeller. The dishwasher impeller is usually located
in the bottom center of the dishwasher tub (close to the bottom
rack) with its two blades scientifically pitched for effective and
thorough water action. It is connected directly to the dishwasher
motor shaft and is actuated by the impeller motor. A circular water
diverter and the blades of the impeller direct the hot water upward
for thorough washing of dishes in both racks.
Loading Racks. The two removable loading dishwasher
racks are constructed of steel wire, electro zinc plated, and coated
with a durable resilient plastic. They are unaffected by hot water,
grease, or any of the recommended detergents.
Automatic dishwashers must have water supplied at a temperature
of approximately 150° F. with a minimum pressure of 20 lbs.
per square inch and a maximum pressure of 120 lbs. per square inch.
Plumbing Dishwasher Connections. All plumbing dishwasher
connections must comply with local plumbing code regulations. Copper
tubing may be used if this conforms with local codes. Water connections
should be made to the inlet valve of the dishwasher with Ms"
standard pipe fittings. The 4" maximum build-up of plumbing
from the center line of the water inlet hole in the floor to the
inlet side of the water valve should be held by the use of two close
nipples, one 3/8" union, and one %" angle shut-off valve
or one 3/4" elbow if the valve is installed in the basement.
The location for the shut-off valve in a 48" dishwasher-sink
should be on the sink side, of the cabinet if a water inlet line
is built from the faucet hot water pipe. With a 24" dishwasher,
the shut-off valve may be located inside the cabinet or in the basement.
Electrical Dishwasher Connections. The only electrical
connections to be made arc. The dishwasher is completely wired,
ready for connection to its power supply.
Dishwasher is designed to operate from a 115-volt 60-cycle a.c.
power source. The current rating of the dishwasher alone is 16.5
amps. In connecting power to a dishwasher or dishwasher disposer
combination, use a separately fused branch circuit with fuse ratings
Dishwasher unit alone 20 Amps.
Dishwasher plus disposer 25 Amps.
Method of Dishwasher Loading Top Rack. When loading
the dishwasher top rack, pull the revolving rack forward. Place
small juice glasses in the innermost circle. If preferred, they
may be hooked over the wire loops. Use whichever method works best.
Each glass must be placed mouth down so that the water can reach
inside and properly drain. Small sauce dishes fit into the next
narrow circle. Place glasses and cups in the widest ring. Alternate
them by two's if de sired, or you may place half the glasses on
one side and half on the other, with cups between the halves. Be
sure the cups and glasses are mouth down. Saucers and bread and
butter plates fit right into the outer circle. Throughout the washing
cycle, the revolving rack turns about 20 times a minute, with a
swirling action that cleans the dishes in the top rack. Every dish
in the revolving dishwasher rack is exposed to the thorough washing
action of the dishwasher. Even if a large bowl or a skillet in the
lower rack forms a partial shield, the revolving rack allows for
Method of Loading Dishwasher the Bottom Rack. Pull
the bottom dishwasher rack out on its rollers so that it rests on
the open door. Place dinner plates, salad plates, soup plates, and
other flat plates into the ring of plate spaces that surrounds the
silver basket. Alternate the large and small items to allow for
the best water action. Large dinner plates will aid water distribution
if they are placed at the corners of the lower rack. Put deep dishes,
mixing bowls, skillets, or pans any remaining dishwasher plumbing
and electrical connections after leveling and aligning (shims may
be necessary) the dishwasher with any adjoining cabinets. Run the
dishwasher through several cycles to test all connections. Replace
the dishwasher timer control knob and the access panel.
