Dishwasher Dispenser
Factors Affecting
.................................................................................
& Detergents
(continued)
....................................................................................
Performance
Rinse Aid
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.
Water Pressure
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.
Water Temperature
Hot water is needed for best dishwashing
and
drying results.
Water entering
dishwasher
should
be at least 120°F (49°C) to give satisfactory
results.
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.

To check water temperature
entering
dishwasher:
Turn on hot water faucet
nearest dishwasher
for several
minutes
to clear cool water from
pipes.
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
thermostat
setting.
Important:
Before
starting
a cycle, run hot
water
to clear cool water
from pipe.
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.
