Detergent guide

Do you use automatic dish washing detergent? (liquid, powder, or tablet)

If Yes : That's great. If you're a liquid or powdered detergent user, the issue that prompted this call could have been the result of using too much detergent.

The manual included with your dishwasher will provide you with details on the recommended amounts of detergent to use (20g-30g).

Proceed to the next step for some additional troubleshooting.

If No: If a dish washing detergent that is designed for washing dishes in the sink is used oversudsing will occur.

Always use Automatic Dishwasher Detergent in your machine.

Rinse Aid Settings

Have you attempted to adjust the rinse aid setting?

Even if you are using the correct detergent, the water quality in the area may require some adjustment to the rinse aid setting.

The factory default setting is 4, but because water quality can vary from household to household the setting may need to be lowered.

Too much rinse aid will result in foaming during the rinse cycle.

Rinse aid can be adjusted by opening the cover to the rinse aid compartment and moving the lever to either a lower or higher number 1 – 6.
