  • Cove Dishwasher detergent suggestions


Cove recommends using any powder, liquid, or all-in-one detergent pods like Finish, Cascade, or Finish Quantum pods/tablets.

  • Powder detergent has enzymes and bleach in one product, and provides the best results. Examples include Finish or Cascade.
  • Liquid detergent has either bleach or enzymes only, and therefore is not suggested for best results.
    • If using liquid detergent, use Finish or Cascade liquids for better results.
  • All-in-one pods can be used in Cove Dishwashers. However, for lighter cycles, like the Light, Quick, and China/Crystal cycles, they may provide too much detergent.
    • For best results, keep a small-size liquid or powder detergent on hand for use with lighter cycles.
    • Refer to Cove Dishwasher Wash Cycles for detergent measurements.
    • If using all-in-one pods, use Finish Quantum pods and tablets for better results.

Detergent should be added to the detergent compartment. Refer to Cove Dishwasher Adding Detergent for more information.

Refer to Cove Dishwasher Wash Cycles for detergent measurements for different cycle types.
