How to Use the Dishwasher and Sink Disposal at Wander Ponte Vedra

Here's everything you need to know!

Welcome to our help center blog, where we’re here to make dishwashing a breeze! In this guide, we’ll show you how to use your dishwasher and sink disposal at Wander Ponte Vedra like a pro so you can tick that off from your to-do list and quickly head back to the beach!

How to operate the dishwasher

Let’s get your dishwasher up and running! Follow these 3 simple steps:

  1. Open the dishwasher door and look for the handy ON/OFF button. Give it a press, and you’ll notice the dishwasher automatically resets to the Auto cycle while the time displayed on the control panel flashes.

  2. Now, you have options! You can either stick with the Auto cycle or select a different cycle that suits your needs. If you want to customize the washing experience, feel free to choose any desired option as well.

  3. Press the START/RESUME button and gently close the door. This will initiate the chosen cycle and get your dishwasher happily humming away.

Quick tip: there’s also a smart safety feature! If the dishwasher door remains open for more than 4 seconds after pressing the [Start/Resume] button, don’t worry, the operation will pause. Simply press the [Start/Resume] button again and make sure to close the door.

Need to make a quick interruption during a dishwasher cycle? No problem! Just follow these steps:

  1. Carefully open the dishwasher door, making sure to open it just enough to expose the control panel. Be cautious of any hot water that may splash out.

  2. Look for the trusty ON/OFF button on the control panel and give it a gentle press to turn off the dishwasher. This will pause the cycle and give you the break you need.

  3. Take a little breather and wait for at least 10 seconds. This allows the dishwasher to reset and ensures a smooth transition when you’re ready to resume.

  4. When you’re ready to jump back into the action, simply press the ON/OFF button again to turn the unit back on. Close the door securely, and the dishwasher will resume the interrupted cycle.

If you need to cancel a dishwasher cycle, follow these steps:

  1. Open the dishwasher door, being cautious of any hot water that may splash out. Open it just enough to expose the control panel.

  2. Look for the trusty START/RESUME button on the control panel. Now, here’s the fun part: press and hold the START/RESUME button for approximately 3-4 seconds until you see the display indicating “0:01”.

  3. Close the door and take a moment. Give the dishwasher about 1 minute to drain properly, allowing the cycle to come to a graceful halt.

  4. Ready to start fresh? Open the door once again and locate the ON/OFF button. Give it a friendly press to turn off the dishwasher. Now, you’re all set to begin a new cycle! Simply turn the dishwasher back on and follow the instructions for starting a new cycle.

How to use the sink disposal

  1. Start with cold water: Before turning on the sink disposal, run cold water through the sink. This helps keep the disposal cool during operation.

  2. Clear the sink: Make sure the sink is clear of any large food scraps or debris that could cause clogs or damage to the disposal.

  3. Turn on the water: Once the sink is clear, turn on the cold water to a moderate flow.

  4. Start the disposal: With the water running, turn on the sink disposal.

  5. Feed the food scraps: Gradually feed small amounts of food scraps into the disposal. Avoid overloading it with a large quantity of food at once, as this can cause clogs or strain the motor.

  6. Allow the disposal to finish: After you have fed all the food scraps into the disposal, let it run for a few extra seconds to ensure all the waste is properly ground up and flushed away.

  7. Turn off the disposal: Once the disposal has finished grinding the food scraps, turn off the unit. Allow the water to run for a few more seconds to help flush away any remaining waste.

  8. Rinse and clean: After turning off the disposal, continue running the water for a few more seconds to rinse the sink and drain.

Remember to avoid putting non-food items, grease, oil, or fibrous materials (such as celery or corn husks) into the sink disposal, as they can cause clogs or damage to the unit.

Are you experiencing issues with your sink disposal? Don’t worry, we’re here to help! Follow these quick and easy steps to solve the problem in a breeze!

  1. Ensure the machine underneath the sink is securely plugged into the outlet.

  2. If there is a reset button on the actual outlet, press that.

  3. Then there is an additional red reset button on the bottom of the actual machine. Press that.
