Rinse Aid

Rinse aid greatly improves drying, reduces
water spots, filming. With it water "sheets"
off dishes rather than forming water droplets that
cling and leave spots.
A dispenser, located next to the detergent cup,
automatically releases a measured amount of
rinse aid during the last rinse. If spotting and
poor drying are problems, increase the amount
of rinse aid dispensed. The indicator will be dark
when full and will show clear when it is time to
To add liquid rinse aid, open the cover. Pour in
rinse aid until liquid touches the indicated fill
level. Close the cover.
Do not overfill since this can cause oversudsing.
Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth.
The dispenser holds enough for 11 to 66 washes,
depending on setting.
Before starting a cycle, run hot water to
clear cool water from pipe.
The HEAT DRY option in combination with
rinse aid will enhance drying performance.
The energy required to use the HEAT DRY
option costs pennies per cycle. You may
choose not to select the HEAT DRY option;
however you will have items in your dish
load that will not be completely dry at the
end of the cycle.
