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.
Rinse aids come in solid or liquid form. If your
dishwasher
does not have a rinse aid dispenser,
a
solid rinse aid should
be fastened
to the front
corner of the upper rack. When material
dissolves
and the container
is empty, it is time to replace
it.
A dispenser
for liquid rinse aid is located
next to
the detergent
cup and 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 wilt 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 the setting.
Factors Affecting
Performance
Water Pressure
The hot water line to the 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 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 HOT OR HEAT
DRY option
in combination
with rinse aid will give you excellent
drying
results.
The energy
to use HOT OR HEAT
DRY costs
pennies
per cycle.
You may turn
off the HOT OR HEAT DRY option,
however
you will have items in your dish load that will
not be dry at the end of the cycle.
