Using Rinse Aid in Your Dishwasher (DW80K7050 & DW80K5050)

Rinse aid improves the drying performance of the dishwasher.

Use liquid rinse aid only. Using a powdered rinse aid will clog the reservoir opening and cause the dishwasher to malfunction.
Do not add regular detergent to the rinse aid reservoir.

When the Rinse Refill indicator lights up on the control panel, refill the reservoir with rinse aid.

  1. Remove the rinse aid reservoir cap by rotating it counterclockwise.
  2. Pull out the cap.
  3. Fill the rinse aid reservoir with rinse aid.

    NOTE: Do not fill the reservoir above the full level indicator. Excess rinse aid can overflow during the wash cycle.

  4. Turn the rinse aid indicator dial to a number between 1 and 6. The higher the number, the more rinse aid the dishwasher uses.

    NOTE: If you are having difficulty rotating the rinse aid dial, try using a coin.

  5. Close the rinse aid reservoir cap by rotating it clockwise.
