Rinse aid greatly improves drying and reduces
water spots and filming. Water "sheets" off dishes
rather than forming water droplets that cling and leave
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 by
rotating the dial to a higher number. The dial is located
under the dispenser cap. The indicator will be dark when
full and will show clear when it is time to refill.
To add liquid rinse aid, turn dispenser cap 1/4 turn
counterclockwise and lift out. Pour in rinse aid until liquid
touches the indicated fill level. Replace cap.
Do not overfill since this can cause oversudsing.
Wipe up any spills with a damp cloth.
The dispenser holds enough for 35 to 140 washes,
depending on setting.
The hot water line to dishwasher must provide water
pressure between 20 and 120 psi.
Low water pressure may occur when laundry or showers
are in operation. Wait until water use is reduced before
Hot water is needed for best dishwashing and drying results.
Water entering dishwasher should be at least 120°F (49°C)
to give satisfactory results.
To check water temperature entering dishwasher:
• Turn on hot water faucet nearest dishwasher for several
minutes to clear cool water from pipes.
• Hold a candy or meat thermometer in stream of water to
check the temperature.
• If temperature is below 120°F (49°C), have a qualified
person raise the hot water heater thermostat setting.
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.
Before starting a cycle, run hot water to clear
cool water from pipe.
