Water Hardness Calibration
Prior to the first use, the dishwasher needs to
be calibrated for water hardness. Please follow
directions below to calibrate the dishwasher to
the hardness of your tap water.
Determine the Hardness of Your Tap Water
In the bag containing these instructions, you should
find a water hardness test strip package. Read the
instructions on the package, remove the test strip and
follow the instructions to determine the hardness level
of your tap water. You will use this information to
calibrate your dishwasher to dispense the optimal
amount of detergent.
