How much detergent to use
The amount of detergent to use depends on the
hardness of your water and the type of detergent. If you
use too little, dishes won't be clean. If you use too
much in soft water, glassware will etch.
Water hardness can change over a period of time. Find
out your water's hardness by asking your local water
department, water softener company, or county
extension agent.
Different brands of dishwasher detergent have different
amounts of phosphorous
for softening water. If you
have hard water and use a detergent with a
phosphorous
content of less than 8.7%, you might
need to use more detergent, or use a detergent with a
phosphorous
content higher than 8.7%.

Rinse aids prevent water from forming droplets that can
dry as spots or streaks. They also improve drying by
allowing water to drain off of the dishes during the final
rinse by re(easing a sinai( amount of the rinse aid into the
rinse water. Your dishwasher is designed to use a liquid
rinse aid. Do not use a solid or bar-type.
Checking the dispenser
Check the center of the Fill Indicator cap. Clear means it
needs filling.
OR
Or you can remove the Fill Indicator cap. If an "E" is visible,
the dispenser is empty.
Filling the dispenser
The rinse aid dispenser holds 6 oz (1"75mL) of rinse aid.
Under normal conditions, this will last for about three
months. You do not have to wait until the dispenser is
empty to refill it. Try to keep it full, but be careful not to
overfill it.
1. Make sure the dishwasher door is completely open.
2, Remove the Fill Indicator cap.
3. Add rinse aid. Fill to the smallest opening in the lower
part of the dispenser. Overfilling can cause the rinse aid
to leak out, and could cause oversudsing.
4, Clean up any spilled rinse aid with a damp cloth.
5. Replace the Fill indicator cap. Close tightly.
