Dispenser & Detergents
Filling the Detergent
Dispenser
Some
models
have
a detergent
dispenser
with
one
covered
and
one
uncovered
cup. Detergent
in the
uncovered
cup falls
into the dishwasher
when
the
door
is closed.
The
covered
cup opens
automatically
to release
detergent.
See
illustration
below.
Use
only
fresh
automatic
dishwashing
detergent.
Other
types
will cause
oversudsing.
Add
detergent
just
before
starting
cycle.
Store
detergent
in a cool,
dry
location.
Moist
or
caked
detergent
will
not dissolve
properly.
The uncovered
cup on models
with
only
one
cup
will be labeled
"Detergent"
and
detergent
should
be added
before
starting
selected
cycle.
Fill both
cups
for Pots

How much Detergent
to use
The
amount
of detergent
to use depends
on the
water
hardness.
Water
hardness
is measured
in
grains
per gallon.
Using
too
little detergent
can
result
in poor cleaning
and
hard water
filming
or
spotting.
Using
too much
detergent
in soft water
can cause
permanent
etching
on glassware.
Your
local
water
company,
water
softener
company
or
county
extension
agent
can tell
you the water
hardness
in your
area.
More
detergent
may
be needed
if the phosphorus
content
is 8.7%
or less.
The
phosphorus
content
is shown
on the
detergent
label.
