Dishwasher: Using Detergent and filling the detergent dispenser

Last Update Date : Apr 17. 2018

Using Detergent

All dishwasher cycles require detergent in the detergent compartment.

 

Add the correct amount of detergent for the selected cycle to ensure the best performance.

Important: Use dishwasher detergent only. Regular detergent produces too much foam, which may decrease the dishwasher’s performance or cause it to malfunction.

 

Warning: Do not swallow dishwasher detergent. Avoid breathing in the fumes. Dishwasher detergent contains irritants and caustic chemicals that can induce respiratory conditions. If you have swallowed dishwasher detergent or inhaled the fumes, seek medical attention immediately.

Filling the Detergent Dispenser

1 Open the detergent dispenser flap by pushing the detergent dispenser release catch.

4 For better cleaning result, especially if you have very dirt items, pour a small amount (about 1/2 of an ounce or 15 g) of detergent onto the door. The additional detergent will activate during the pre-wash phase.
