Rinse Aid
Rinse aid greatly improves drying, reduces water
spots and filming, and lubricates wash arm
bearings for proper rotations.
With it, water
"sheets" off dishes rather than forming water droplets
that cling and leave spots.
A dispenser, located next to the detergent cup,
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. On
models with a STATUS window, LO will appear at the
end of the cycle indicating that it is time to refill.
To add liquid rinse aid, turn dispenser cap 1/4 turn
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.
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. If you experience poor wash
perfomance you may need to wait until water use is
reduced before starting your dishwasher.
Hot water is needed for best dishwashing and drying
results. Water entering the dishwasher should be about
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 the water
stream to check the temperature.
If temperature
is below 120°F (49°C), have a
qualified person raise the hot water heater thermostat
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.
