1. Cover
2. Main Wash section
3. Cover latch
4. Pre-Wash section
The larger Main Wash section automatically
empties detergent
into the dishwasher during the main wash. (See the "Cycle
Selection Charts.")
Use automatic dishwashing
detergent only. Other detergents
can produce excessive suds that can overflow out of the
dishwasher
and reduce washing performance.
Add detergent just before starting a cycle.
Store tightly closed detergent in a cool, dry place. Fresh
automatic dishwasher detergent results in better cleaning.
NOTE: Do not use detergent with a rinse cycle.
Filling the dispenser
1.
If the dispenser cover is closed, open the cover by pushing
the Cover latch.
2.
Fill the Main Wash section with detergent. See "How Much
Detergent to Use."
3. Close the Main Wash dispenser cover. Fill the Pre-Wash
section if needed.
It is normal for the cover to open partially when dispensing
detergent.
NOTE: Use both sections for cycles with 2 washes. Use only the
covered section for cycles with 1 wash. See the "Cycle Selection
Charts" 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.
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 phosphorus 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%.

0 to 6 grains per

if needed
NOTE: Add only 1 tb or 15 g of

soft (0 to 2 grains per gallon).
For heavily soiled loads
Fill the Main Wash section to the
top of the 3rd step (3 tbs or 45 g)
