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.)
Close the main cup.
NOTE: Detergent cup may be
opened manually with no harm.

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
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 bits and flushes them away.
It can handle small amounts of
soft foods, but large amounts will
be difficult to handle.

3.
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 also want to consider removing
foods such as mustard, mayonnaise,
vinegar, lemon juice and other
foods that can cause discoloration
of stainless steel if allowed to
remain on dishes for a long period
of time.
When using
cycle less preparation is required
before loading. The P~CRUBBER
cycle can wash heavily-soiled
dishes and remove dried-on and
baked-on soils from pots, pans and
casseroles. Items with burned-on
soils will not come clean. And the
dishwasher cannot remove burn
marks or restore fading caused by
overheating during cooking.
