Premeasured
Detergents
Many detergents now come in premeasured forms (gel
packs, tablets, or powder packs). These forms are suitable
for all hardness and soil levels. Always place premeasured
detergents in the main cup and close the lid.
IM PO RTANT:
Extremely hard water mineral deposits (15 grains per U.S.
gallon or more) can cause damage to your dishwasher and
make it difficult to achieve good results. A water softener is
recommended
to avoid damage and achieve good results.
You may bring your water samples to Sears to check
hardness level.
IMP( _RTANT:
Your dishwasher is designed to use a liquid rinse aid. The
use of rinse aids greatly improves drying by allowing water
to drain from the dishes after the final rinse. They also keep
water from forming droplets that can dry as spots or
streaks.
Filling the dispenser
The dispenser holds 5 oz (150 mL) of rinse aid. Under most
conditions this will last 1 to 3 months.
1. Turn the knob to the REFILL position and remove.
2. Pour rinse aid into the opening until the indicator points
to FULL. Do not overfill.
3. Clean up any spilled rinse aid. Spilled rinse aid can
create excessive suds.
4. Replace the knob and turn to the LOCK position.
NOTE: Indicator reads correct fill level when door is
completely opened.
Rinse Aid Setting
Your rinse aid dispenser is adjustable. For most water
conditions, the factory setting of 2 will give good results. If
you have hard water and notice calcium buildup on your
dishware, you may want to try a higher setting.
Lock
Refill
To adjust the setting
1. Turn the knob to the REFILL position and remove.
2. Turn the arrow inside the dispenser to the desired
setting.
3. Replace the knob and turn to the LOCK position.
