Using rinse aid

We highly recommend using liquid rinse aid regularly to get the best drying results. Rinse aid gives a streak-free, sparkling clean look to glass and chinaware. In addition, it prevents metal from tarnishing.

When to refill the rinse aid dispenser

When rinse aid level becomes low, the rinse aid indicator on the control panel will light up to remind you to refill the dispenser.

When you have the dishwasher door open you can also check the rinse aid level using the indicators on the dispenser inside the dishwasher.

Adjusting the rinse aid dosage

The normal, factory-set dosage level is 5, but you
may need to adjust this to suit your water conditions.

  • If there is excessive foaming at the end of the wash, reduce the dosage.
  • If you live in a hard water area or if dishes are wet or streaky after drying, increase the dosage.
  • To adjust the rinse aid setting: see ‘User preference settings’ for how to do this.
  • If you are using tablets with built-in rinse aid, we recommend setting the rinse aid dosage level to off ().

How to refill the rinse aid dispenser

  1. Press the button to snap the dispenser cover open.
  2. Pour rinse aid into the circular opening, making sure not to fill beyond the MAX marking.

Take care not to spill rinse aid into the dishwasher. Any spills must be wiped up to prevent excess foaming. Failure to do so may result in a service call, which will not be covered by warranty.

  1. Close the cover, making sure it clicks shut.
