Using the Detergent Compartment in Your Dishwasher (DW80K7050 & DW80K5050)

All dishwasher cycles require detergent in the detergent compartment. Add the correct amount of detergent for the selected cycle to ensure the best performance.

Keep dishwasher detergent out of the reach of children.

Using the Detergent Compartment

  1. Open the detergent dispenser flap by pushing the detergent dispenser release catch.
  2. Add the recommended amount of detergent to the main wash detergent compartment.
  3. Close the flap by sliding it up. Then, press it down.
  4. For best results, pour a small amount (about ½ of an ounce or 15g) of detergent onto the door.
