LG Dishwasher - Detergent Dispenser

  • Open the dishwasher and locate the detergent dispenser on the inside of the door.

  • If the lid is closed, press the lever on the bottom side of the lid to open the dispenser.

  • The dispenser Cup has to fill lines marked 15 and 25.

  • The amount of detergent needed depends on the cycle, load size, and soil level of the dishes.

  • For normal everyday loads, fill the detergent dispenser cup midway between the 2 lines.

  • It is important that you only use detergent intended specifically for use in dishwashers.

  • For lightly soiled dishes or soft water conditions, it is recommended to fill the dishwasher detergent up to the first line marked 15.

  • For heavily soiled dishes or hard water conditions, it is recommended to fill the dishwasher detergent up to the second fill line marked 25.

  • Using excess detergent can leave a film on dishes and in the dishwasher resulting in poor wash performance.

  • After filling the dispenser cup, close the lid.

  • If you would like to add detergents to the pre-wash, fill the pre wash compartment located on the lid of the dispenser.
