Powder and Gels
The amount of detergent to use depends on:
How much soil remains on the items - Heavily soiled loads require
more detergent.
The hardness of the water - If you use too little detergent in hard
water, dishes won't be clean. If you use too much in soft water,
glassware will etch.
Soft to Medium Water (0-6 grains per U.S. gallon) [typical water
softener water and some city water]
Medium to Hard Water (7-12 grains per U.S. gallon) [well water
and some city water]
Depending on your water hardness, fill the Main Wash section of
the dispenser as shown. Fill the Pre-Wash section to the level
shown, if needed.
NOTE:
Follow instructions on the package when using other
dishwasher detergent types.
4.
Add Rinse Aid
Your dishwasher is designed to use rinse aid for good drying
performance. Without rinse aid, your dishes and dishwasher interior
will have excessive moisture. The Heat Dry option will not perform
as well without rinse aid.
Rinse aid keeps water from forming droplets that can
dry as spots or streaks. It also improves drying by
allowing water to drain off of dishes after final rinse.
To add rinse aid, turn the
dispenser cap to “Refill” and
lift off. Pour rinse aid into the
opening until indicator level is
at “Full.” Replace dispenser
cap and turn to “Lock.” Make
sure cap is fully locked.
NOTE:
For most water conditions, the factory setting
will give good results.
Check water hardness level to ensure there
are no rings or spots on your dishware before
adding rinse aid or adjusting the factory setting.
If you are experiencing poor drying
performance, you may want to try a
higher setting.
Turn the arrow adjuster inside the dispenser to
change rinse aid setting.
5.
Select a Cycle (cycles vary by model)
Efficient dishwashers run longer to save water and energy, just as
driving a car slower saves on gas. Typical cycle time is approximately
2
¹⁄₂
hours, but can take less or more time to complete depending
on selections.
6.
Select Options (options vary by model)
You can customize your cycles by pressing the options desired. If you
change your mind, press the option again to turn off the option. Not all
options are available for every cycle. If an invalid option is selected for a
given cycle, the lights will flash.
7.
Start or Resume a Cycle
NOTE:
Run hot water at the sink nearest your dishwasher until the
water is hot. Turn off water.
IMPORTANT:
If anyone opens the door (such as, for adding a dish,
even during the Delay Hours option), the START/RESUME button must
be pressed each time.
Push door firmly closed. The door latches automatically. Select
the wash cycle, options, and press START/RESUME or press
START/RESUME to repeat the same cycle and options as in
previous wash cycle.
This information covers several different models. Your dishwasher may not have all of the cycles and options described.
