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 enters the tub. PLEASE BE ADVISED: If you compare this dishwasher to previous models, you may be surprised at what you DON’T hear.

Frigidaire Professional 24 Built-In Dishwasher with EvenDry System User Manual - Pin icon 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.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Frigidaire Professional 24 Built-In Dishwasher with EvenDry System User Manual - Warning or Caution icon

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.

FEATURES

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 soils 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 are repeated as needed. The number of water fills varies with the cycle being used.

Frigidaire Professional 24 Built-In Dishwasher with EvenDry System User Manual - Warning or Caution icon CAUTION
Property Damage Hazard
Before starting 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 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 HIGH TEMP WASH option has not be selected. When HIGH 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 provide 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.

Starting a Cycle

  1. When the cycle and options have been selected, the LEDs over the cycle and options selected will illuminate. The status window will display the cycle time and then displays “Press START”.
    To start the cycle, press START/ CANCEL pad and close the door immediately.
    The status window displays “Close” after the START/CANCEL pad is pressed.
    A tone will sound indicating the cycle has successfully started after the door is closed.
    My Favorited Cycle
    The MY FAVOURITE CYCLE option allows you to program your preferred cycle and options into one button. Once Programmed, simply press the MY FAVOURITE CYCLE button followed by the START/CANCEL pad to select the programmed cycle and options.
    To Program the MY FAVORITE CYCLE button:
    1. Select your preferred cycle and options.
    2. Hold the MY FAVORITE CYCLE button for 3 seconds.
    The LED over the MY FAVORITE CYCLE 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.
    Option Selections
  2. Wash Temp
    High
    Select by pressing the HIGH pad. The dishwasher heats water in the main wash to approximately 140°F (60°C) and increases the temperature higher in the final rinse to help with the drying stage. This helps dishwasher detergent remove food grease and soil from dishes more effectively and aids in drying performance by adding additional rinse aid and increasing the water temperature.
    Sanitize
    Select SANITIZE option, by pressing SANITIZE pad to sanitize your dishes and glassware. When selected, the light illuminates and remains on after the cycle has completed. The water temperature in the final rinse rises to 155°F (68°C) and maintains that temperature for 9 minutes. This option is available in HEAVY and NORMAL wash cycles. Only these sanitization cycles have been designed to meet NSF requirements.
    The cycle time is extended until the proper water temperature is reached. Washing action continues during the water heating delay. For best results, the incoming water temperature should be at least 120°F (49°C).
    The sanitize criteria may not be satisfied if there is an interruption of the cycle, power failure or if the incoming water temperature is below 120°F (49°C). Sanitise pad flashes at the end of the cycle if the NSF requirements for sanitation are not reached.
    Press the SANITIZE pad to turn off the SANITIZE option. The SANITIZE light will turn off.
  3. Air Dry
    The AIR DRY option uses reduced temperature in the final rinse. While saving energy and time, you may have items in your dish load that will not be completely dry at the end of the cycle. Deselecting AIR DRY option in combination with rinse aid will enhance drying performance.AIR DRY option is not available on all cycles.
    Vented Drying Option on 30 Min Wash
    Vented drying will heavily improve drying performance. This is a default setting on Heavy, Normal, China Crystal and Energy Saver, and an option on 30 min Wash cycle. Deselect Air Dry to select Vented Drying. (Vented drying is activated when Air Dry LED is OFF.)
    • Air Dry led on » Fan OFF
    • Air Dry led off » Fan ON (vented drying option selected).
    This option turns the fan on during the dry cycle to support drying performance and extends the cycle 30 minutes.
  4. 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 optimisation, some pressure options are not selectable in all wash cycles.
    Spray
    Press SPRAY pad to select this option. This varies the pressure optimally for the cycle’s intended normal use.
    Scour
    Press SCOUR pad to select this option. This provides a very high “scour” pressure. Due to wash cycle optimisation, this option is not selectable in all wash cycles.
    SPRAY and SCOUR can not both be selected to run together.
  5. Status Window
    The Status Window indicates the number of delay start hours, the number of minutes left in a cycle, the level of rinse aid dosage, and the CLOSE and START cycle prompts.
  6. Delay Time
    The DELAY TIME option allows you to automatically delay starting your dishwasher from 1-24 hours.

CARE AND CLEANING

Dish Preparation
Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits, toothpicks, etc. The continuously filtered wash fluid will remove 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 of time. 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 manufacturer’s recommendations before washing items in question.
  • If the dishwasher drains into a Food Disposer,
    be sure disposer is completely empty before starting dishwasher.

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.
Frigidaire Professional 24 Built-In Dishwasher with EvenDry System User Manual - Pin iconNOTE
Hard water may cause lime deposit buildup on the interior of the dishwasher. For cleaning instructions see “Removing Spots and film” section.
How much Detergent to use
The amount of detergent to use depends on the water 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 Professional 24 Built-In Dishwasher with EvenDry System User Manual - How much Detergent to useFrigidaire Professional 24 Built-In Dishwasher with EvenDry System User Manual - Pin iconNOTE
Detergent tablets and All-In-One packs may not dissolve completely if used with the 30 MINUTE WASH cycle. If one of these products are 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.
Dosage of detergent
Place a single detergent tablet or packet into the detergent dispenser compartment.
Detergent Usage Chart
Frigidaire Professional 24 Built-In Dishwasher with EvenDry System User Manual - Detergent Usage ChartFrigidaire Professional 24 Built-In Dishwasher with EvenDry System User Manual - Pin iconNOTE
For very hard water, detergent alone may not be enough. A water softener is recommended to improve water quality and dish washing 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.
Rinse Aid
Rinse aid greatly improves drying,
reduces water spots, 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:

  1. Lift up the rinse aid cover to open.
  2. Fill the rinse aid dispenser with liquid rinse aid until the liquid reaches the indicated fill level. DO NOT overfill.
  3. Press the rinse aid cover down firmly to close.
  4. Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth.
    Frigidaire Professional 24 Built-In Dishwasher with EvenDry System User Manual - To add liquid rinse aid

The dispenser holds enough for 11 to 66 washes, depending on setting.
Frigidaire Professional 24 Built-In Dishwasher with EvenDry System User Manual - IMPORTANT iconIMPORTANT
Before starting a cycle, run hot water to clear cool water from pipe.
Frigidaire Professional 24 Built-In Dishwasher with EvenDry System User Manual - Pin iconNOTE
Deselecting the AIR DRY option in combination with rinse aid will enhance drying performance. The energy required to not use the AIR DRY option costs pennies per cycle. You may choose to select the AIR 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 pad for 5 seconds until the status window shows rinse aid level. Pressing the DELAY TIME pad increases the increment level (L1 – L4).
Once the rinse-aid level reaches L4, the status window will start back at level L1.
Pressing the START/CANCEL button or just pausing for a few seconds confirms the rinse aid level setting: the status window shows the duration of the cycle.
Water Pressure
The hot water line to 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 best dish washing and drying results. Water entering dishwasher should be at least 120°F (49°C) to give satisfactory results.
To check water temperature entering dishwasher:

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

Outside
Occasionally wipe with a mild nonabrasive detergent and water. Rinse and dry.
Care of Drain Air Gap
If a 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 counter top and can be inspected by removing the cover. This is not part of your dishwasher and is not
covered by warranty.
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 under running water and replace. Use of a sponge or bottle brush may be necessary to remove all food residue.

  • Adjust the amount of detergent based on the water hardness. (Check Detergent Chart).
  • Lower the water temperature.

Detergent Left in Dispenser Cup

  • Detergent may be old. Discard and use fresh detergent.
  • Be sure the dish load doesn’t block spray from entering the detergent cup.
  • Check to see if cycle has been completed.
  • Make sure items do not prevent the detergent dispenser from opening.

Vapor at Vent

  • Spilled rinse aid can cause foam and lead to overflowing. Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth.
  • Water vapor escapes from the vent during the drying part of the cycle. This is normal.
  • Check to see that dishwasher is level. (See Installation Instructions).

Stains on Tub Interior

  • Washing large amounts of dishware with tomato based soil can cause a pink/orange appearance. This will not affect performance and will gradually fade over time. Pre-rinsing or using the Rinse Only cycle will reduce the chance of staining. Using air dry option will lessen staining.

Opening the door during cycle

  • If the dishwasher door is opened while the unit is running, the START/ CANCEL pad must be pressed and the door shut immediately to return the unit to the selected cycle and option.
