How much detergent to use

The amount of detergent to use depends on the soil level of
your dishes, hardness of your water, and the type of
detergent. If you use too little, dishes will not be clean. If you
use too much in soft water, glassware will etch.

gallon and above)
NOTE: Fill amounts shown are for standard powdered detergent. Amounts may vary if you use liquid or concentrated powdered
detergent. Tablet detergents should be placed in the main wash section of the detergent dispenser with the cover closed. Follow
instructions on the package when using liquid dishwasher detergent, concentrated powdered detergent or tablet detergent.
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. Do not use a
solid or bar-type rinse aid.
Filling the dispenser
The rinse aid dispenser holds 5 oz (150 mL) of rinse aid. Under
normal conditions, this will last for about 1 to 3 months.
1. Make sure the dishwasher door is fully open.
2. Turn the dispenser knob to "Open" and lift it out.

drops to the "Add" level, add more rinse aid.)

4. Clean up any spilled rinse aid with a damp cloth.
5. Place the knob back into the opening and turn to the "Lock"
position.
Rinse aid setting
The amount of rinse aid released into the final rinse can be
adjusted. For most water conditions, the factory setting of 2 will
give good results. If you have hard water or notice rings or
calcium spots on your glasses or dishes, try a higher setting.
