Below is a scanned image of the opened front of a dishwasher and an overview of the chemicals/detergents to use - and where to apply these in the machine (A, B, C).


Please note that the machine will tell you (when a light come on) that it needs "rinse aid" (the symbol looks like a *) and "salt" (the symbol looks like the letter S). Detergent is needed with every wash.

Neither soap rinse aid nor salt are expensive, and they can be bought in any supermarket.

The machine will not function properly if these things are not added and your dishes will not be clean. Please make sure that this is indeed the case in your apartment/kitchen.
