USING THE DISPENSERS
For the best washing
result it is important
to use the correct
amount of detergent
and rinse agent•
DETERGENT
USE
Use only fresh dishwashing
detergent
( powder
is recom-
mended)
manufactured
specifically
for dishwasher
use. Use
of other types of detergents
will result in excessive
suds.
Be sure to check the phosphate
content of the detergent
m
be used. Phosphate
helps prevent the minerals
in hard
water from forming a film or spots on dishes. Hard water
requires your detergent
to work harder• In hard water areas
you will find that detergents
with high phosphate
levels
will provide
a better result• If the phosphate
level is low,
below 8.7%, you may have to use extra detergent
in hard
water areas.
With hard water, or with the POWER SCRUB PLUS
cycle, it is recommended that the detergent dispenser
be completely filled, roughly 9 teaspoons. If additional
detergent is required it can be placed on the inside of
the door, just below the dispenser.

Figure 11.
Be sure to follow the dishwasher
detergent
manufacturer's
instructions
when using the detergents.
Concentrated
detergents
usually call for lower usage than do standard
detergents.
Note:
Do not use detergent
when the RINSE & HOLD
cycle has been selected.
DETERGENT
DISPENSER
The detergent
dispenser
on the Bosch dishwasher
is
located on the inside of the door, see figure I as well as
figure I I and 12. The detergent
dispenser
cover may be
opened
by pulling the release tab (figure 12) toward you.
Once the cover is open you will see two level marks:
-25" and "15". These refer to the w)lume when filled level
in millilders.
15 milliliters
is equivalent
to 3 teaspoons.
It
the detergent
dispenser
is completely
filled it can hold
45 milliliters,
or roughly 9 teaspoons.
The alnount
of dcteJgcnt

depends
on the cycle

and

Figure 12.
With soft water the amount of detergent
may be
reduced.
Also, for the DELICATE/ECONOMY
or
QUICK WASH cycles the amount of detergent
may
be reduced.
For the DELICATE/ECONOMY
or
QUICK WASH cycles it is recommended
that only
the chamber
marked "15" be filled with detergent;
roughly
3 teaspoons
of detergent.
If you have water of medium
or higher hardness
and the
dishes do not come clean the cause, in the majority
of
cases, is the use of too little detergent
rather than too
much. If you have very soft water, or chemically
treated
soft water special care should be taken to use the minimum
amount of detergent.
For these situations
a high quality,
low phosphate
detergent
is recommended.
Too much
detergent
combined
with soft water may cause etching
of
glassware.
After filling the detergent
compartment
close the cover
by sliding it over the detergent
chamber
and pressing
down on the button until it clicks shut. The detergent
will
be dispensed
automatically
during the wash portion
of the
cycle.
If the cover of the detergent
dispenser
is closing fully but
it won't
latch this is most likely due to the dishwasher
having been stopped
in mid cycle, Check the alphanumeric
display, see Figure 2, m see d cycle has been complctcd.
If the cycle is not complete
please refer to section of this
manual
titled TO INTERRUPT
OR RESET CYCLE
