USE THE RIGHT DETERGENT

Your SideKick™ pedestal washer is a high-efficiency machine. So, feel free to use the same liquid or powder HE detergent that you use in your front load washer. The HE detergent formulations help prevent oversudsing that can affect overall washer performance.

NOTE

You should NOT use detergent pods in your SideKick™ pedestal washer at any time. And always follow the amount guidelines on your HE detergent bottle. Adding too much detergent may cause oversudsing, so be sure to use the right amount.

HOW MUCH DETERGENT TO USE

Your SideKick™ pedestal washer comes with a detergent dispenser to help you quickly and easily measure just the right amount of detergent. One side is intended for liquid detergent, the other side for powder. Simply fill to the mark and pour into the tub before starting the cycle. If you happen to lose the dispenser that came with your machine, just use approximately 1/4 of the detergent you would normally use in your regular front load washer.
