Using the
Proper Use of Detergent
Use only detergent specifically made for use
in dishwashers Cascade_and Electrasot ®
Automatic Dishwashing Detergents have been
approved for use in all GEdishwashers. Keep
your detergent fresh and dry. Don't put powder
detergent into the dispenser,until you're ready
to wash dishes
The amount of detergent to use depends on
whether gour water is hard or soft. With hard
water, gou need extra detergent. With soft water,
gou need less detergent.
Protect gour dishes and dishwasher bg
contactinggout water department and asking
how hard gaur water is Twelve or more grains
is extremetg hard water. A water softener, is
recommended, Without it, lime can build up
in the water valve, which could stick while open
and cause flooding Too much detergent with
soft water can cause a permanent cloudiness
of glassware, calied etching,
