Dishwasher Dispenser & Detergents
Rinse Aid
Rinse aid greatly improves drying, reduces water
spots, fi lming, and lubricates wash arm bearing for
proper rotation. 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
the status window will show LOW RINSE when it is
time to refi ll.
To add liquid rinse aid, open the cover. Pour in
rinse aid until liquid touches the indicated fi ll level.
Close the cover.
Do not overfi ll since this can cause oversudsing.
Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth.
The dispenser holds enough for 11 to 66 washes,
depending on setting.
