Your Part
in Cleaning
the detergent
• Use automatic
dishwashing detergent only. Other
detergents are too mild and much too sudsy.
• Add detergent just before starting cycle.
• Store tightly closed detergent in a cool, dry place.
Fresh automatic dishwasher detergent results in
better cleaning.
Filling the detergent
The detergent dispenser []
has one section with a cover
and one without. Push the cover down firmly until it latch-
es. Detergent in the open section falls into the dishwasher
when closing the door. The covered section opens auto-
matically for the main wash. It is normal for the cover to
open partially when dispensing detergent.
NOTE: Use both sections for cycles with two washes.
Use only the covered section for cycles with one wash.
See the cycles chart for more details.

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.
• Find out your water's hardness by asking the water softener department
in your local Sears store or your local water

dishes are prerinsed or water is very soft.
