*Includes dry time. **Powdered detergent. ***Shortened cycle time impacts drying performance.

Powdered detergent is recommended. If using liquid detergent:

  • For cycles longer than an hour, such as Normal, Heavy, or Pot and Pans, fill the detergent cup full.
  • For cycles less than an hour, such as Quick, fill the detergent cup about half full.

All-in-one pods may provide too much detergent for lighter cycles.
