DETERGENT AND RINSE AID
IMPORTANT:
Extremely hard water mineral deposits (15 grains
per U.S. gallon or more) can cause damage to your dishwasher
and make it difficult to achieve good results. A water softener is
recommended
to avoid damage and achieve good results. You
may bring your water samples to Sears to check hardness level.
NOTE: If you do not plan to run a wash cycle soon, run a rinse
cycle. Do not use detergent.
Use automatic
dishwasher detergent only. Add powder,
liquid or tablet detergent just before starting a cycle.
Fresh automatic
dishwasher detergent results in better
cleaning. Store tightly closed detergent
container in a cool,
dry place.
Premeasured
Detergents
Many detergents now come in premeasured forms (gel packs,
tablets, or powder packs). These forms are suitable for all
hardness and soil levels. Always place premeasured detergents
in main compartment
and close lid.
Using dishwasher detergent tablets and packs have been
proven better than powder, liquid or gel detergents at reducing
filming on dishes. Using tablets and packs over time will start to
reduce or eliminate white film. Also, by using a rinse aid you can
minimize repeat buildup of white film.

IMPORTANT" Your dishwasher is designed to use a liquid rinse
aid. The use of rinse aids greatly improves drying by allowing
water to drain from the dishes after the final rinse. They also
keep water from forming droplets that can dry as spots or
streaks.
Filling the dispenser
The dispenser holds 5 oz (150 mL) of rinse aid. Under most
conditions this will last 1 to 3 months.
1. Turn the knob to the REFILL position and remove.
2. Pour rinse aid into the opening until the indicator
points to
FULL. Do not overfill.
3. Clean up any spilled rinse aid. Spilled rinse aid can create
excessive suds.
4. Replace the knob and turn to the LOCI( position.
NOTE: Indicator reads correct fill level when door is completely
opened.
Rinse Aid Setting
Your rinse aid dispenser is adjustable.
For most water conditions,
the factory setting will give good results. If you have hard water
and notice calcium buildup on your dishware, you may want to
try a higher setting. If you notice foam in your dishwasher, use a
lower setting.
To adjust the setting
1. Turn the knob to the REFILL position and remove.
2. Turn the arrow inside the dispenser to the desired setting.
3. Replace the knob and turn to the LOCI( position.
