Dishwasher Dispenser & Detergents
Filling the Detergent Dispenser
The detergent
dispenser
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.
Useonlyfresh
automaticdishwashing
detergent.
Other detergents
will cause oversudsing.
Add detergent
just before starting
cycle.
Store detergent
in a cool, dry location.
Moist or
caked detergent
will not dissolve
properly.
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
atthe 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.
