You'll find two detergent
dispensers on the inside door of
your dishwasher. Two, because
some cycles use two washes.
See "Detergent Usage Guide"
below. (Be sure the Cycle Indicator
Dial is at OFFposition before
adding detergent. Otherwise the
detergent cup will not close and
latch properly.)

How to prepare the
dishes for washing
If this is your first dishwasher, or
if you're replacing a much older
model, you may wonder how much
pre-preparation your dishes need.
Actually very little. Pre-rinsing of
normal food soils is not necessary.
With common sense and a little
practice you'll soon know what
foods to remove. Here are some
guidelines:
1. Scrape off bones, seeds, skins,
toothpicks and other hard solids. It
is also best to remove hard shelled
vegetables, meat trimmings, leafy
vegetables and crusts. Remove
excessive quantities of oil or
grease.
2. Remove large quantities of any
food. Your dishwasher has a built-in
soft food disposer that pulverizes
soft food bits and flushes them away.
It can handle small amounts of
soft foods, but large amounts will
be difficult to handle.

3. Try to remove food scraps and
place dishes in dishwasher before
soil has a chance to dry and become
hard. Dishes with dried-on soil are
more difficult to wash and may
not come clean in the NORMAL
WASH cycle. Remember to use
your RINSE HOLD cycle for small
"holding" loads.
Note: The foods mentioned above
are for examples only. Other foods
not mentioned may also need to be
removed from your dishes. You may

vinegar, lemon juice and other
foods that can cause discoloration
of staidess steel if allowed to remain
on dishes for a long period of time.
