Dishwasher Dispenser & Detergents
Filling the Detergent Dispenser
The detergent

has one covered and
one uncovered
cup. Detergent
in the
uncovered
cup falls into the dishwasher
when
the door is closed. The covered cup opens
automatically
to release detergent.
Use only fresh automatic
dishwashing
detergent.
Other detergents will cause
oversudsing.

tabs, place one tab in main wash
cup and close.
Add detergent just before starting cycle.
Store detergent
in a cool, dry location. Moist
or caked detergent
will not dissolve properly.
The use of industrial grade detergent
can
damage the heating coil and other parts of
the dishwasher
leading to damage to the
unit and surrounding
property.
Use only
household grade automatic dishwasher
detergents.
How much Detergent to use
The amount of detergent to use depends on the
water hardness. Water hardness is measured
in
grains per gallon. Using too little detergent
can
result in poor cleaning and hard water filming or
spotting. Using too much detergent
in soft water
can cause a permanent film called etching. Your
local water company, water softener company
or county extension agent can tell you the water
hardness in your area.

*Note: For very hard water, detergent
alone may not be enough. A water softener is recommended
to improve water quality and dishwashing
performance.
Try adding more detergent
at the beginning
of the main wash portion of the cycle. As a rule, use 1 teaspoon
for each grain above 12. Unlatch
the door, open slowly and add detergent
to the bottom of the tub. Close the door to latch and the
dishwasher
will continue through the cycle.
