Rinse aid greatly improves drying and reduces
water spots and filming. 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 by rotating the dial to a higher
number. The dial is located under the dispenser
cap. The indicator will be dark when full and will
show clear when it is time to refill.
To add liquid rinse aid, turn dispenser cap 1/4 turn
counterclockwise and lift out. Pour in rinse aid until
liquid touches the indicated fill level. Replace cap.
Do not overfill since this can cause oversudsing.
Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth.
The dispenser holds enough for 35 to 140 washes,
depending on setting.
The HEAT DRY option in combination with rinse
aid will enhance drying performance. The energy
required to use the HEAT DRY option costs
pennies per cycle. You may choose not to select
the HEAT DRY option; however you will have
items in your dish load that will not be completely
dry at the end of the cycle.
The hot water line to dishwasher must provide
water pressure between 20 and 120 psi.
Low water pressure may occur when laundry or
showers are in operation. Wait until water use is
reduced before starting dishwasher.
Hot water is needed for best dishwashing and
drying results. Water entering dishwasher should
be at least 120°F (49°C) to give satisfactory
To check water temperature entering dishwasher:
• Turn on hot water faucet nearest dishwasher
for several minutes to clear cool water from
• Hold a candy or meat thermometer in stream of
water to check the temperature.
• If temperature is below 120°F (49°C), have a
qualified person raise the hot water heater
Important: Before starting a cycle, run hot
water to clear cool water from pipe.
