You are using an air conditioner to wash dishes? I don't judge. The large compartment at the bottom is where the vent collects dust, you don't want to put detergent in there.

The smaller compartment at the top is where the cooled air comes from. I would suggest that you apply detergent and water in the sink before placing them in the smaller compartment at the top to dry.

I salute you, sir or madame. Your rare approach to dishes is a testament to your ability to adapt and overcome.

The large one with the cover can be used with a quick wash. The quick wash just cuts out one of the beginning rinse cycles but should still be opening the detergent door. The one with the slits in it is if you have particularly dirty dishes or ones that have had dirt sitting on them for a while and the detergent will go into very first rinse cycle and help to free the dirt or food. The only time the door should not open is in a rinse only cycle if your d/w has this cycle. Thanks for rating me after you read this.

Hi. I have a 2nd hand WD8016C LG but dont know which compartment is pre wash, wash + fabric softener. Also, bubbles form at the window and stay at the end Thankyou


First compartment on right side of drawer is prewash, next to it on the left is wash, second compartment on right is softener. Bubbles because you are using far too much detergent. Only use 2 tablespoons max for normal fairly large wash load, even less for smaller loads. Front loaders use little water, so need much less detergent. Also, highly suggest you not use softener, leaves residue in washer that soon turns to mildew and bad odors. Use white vinegar in its place. Helps remove detergent residue from clothes, keeps tub smelling good, and is very inexpensive. Liquid detergent is also an issue--it too leaves residue behind. Powdered detergent works much better and also is cheaper(counterintuitive you would think liquid dissolves better, but it doesn't).

Do I put powder detergent in the same place I put Liquid detergent?


Detergent compartment
Add liquid or powdered detergent to this compartment for your
wash cycle. The detergent separator must always be in place,
either in the front or back position.
 Do not fill beyond the “MAX” level.
 Liquid or powdered color-safe bleach may be added to the
Main Wash compartment along with the same type of
detergent, liquid or powdered.
 Liquid detergent: Put the SEPARATOR in the front position,
between the guides, as shown as shown by Position 1 below.
There will be no gap between the bottom of the wash cycle detergent
compartment and the bottom of the separator.

Powdered detergent:
Put the SEPARATOR in the back
position, behind the guides as shown by Position 1 below. There will be
a gap between the bottom of the wash cycle detergent
compartment and the bottom of the separator.

NOTE: The separator will be in the POWDER (back) position
when shipped from the factory.

There are usually 3 compartments in the drawer, the smallest is for using fabric conditioner, the largest is where you put the powder or detergent in, the middle size one you do not put anything in, as it is where the cold water comes in for rinsing.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Any detergent that says "Automatic" should be OK.

Pretty much any softener should be OK.

You will usually find a drawer on the front panel of the machine, just under the top edge, typically on the left hand side.

If you open this drawer, you will find it is divided into a number of (typically four) compartments. There will be one or two large compartments for detergent and one or two smaller, usually partially covered, compartments for bleach and conditioner.

You need to identify which is which.

Starting with detergent: If you only have one large compartment, that's the one to use.

If there are two, you need to know which is for main wash and which is for prewash. If one is bigger than the other, use the big one for your main detergent load. If using a cycle that does a prewash, put detergent in the smaller compartment as well.

If they're both the same, you need to experiment: Select a wash cycle that doesn't do prewash. Turn the machine on, and when it starts to fill, cautiously open the drawer a little and look to see which compartment has the fill water running through it. That's the one you need to use for your main wash detergent (use the other as well on cycles that do a prewash).

Now look at the smaller compartments. Hopefully, they'll be marked with a triangle for the bleach and something looking like a flower for the conditioner. If not, put a little bit of conditioner into the bottom of each, set the machine to "final rinse" and see which compartment it takes the conditioner from. That's the one you use for conditioner in future. (Don't worry about the little bit of conditioner you've put in the bleach tray - this will rinse out the first time you run a full cycle).

When putting in bleach or conditioner, it's important not to overfill. If there's a fill level line, don't go above that. If the compartment is covered with a grating then fill no further than the grating. Overfilling will cause the product to go into the machine too early in the cycle.

(Finally, strongly advise against posting your phone number or personal email address on public internet sites - it attracts all sorts of undesirable attention)

Good luck - and enjoy your new machine.

Hi, we have a hotpoint aquarius - the "fan" compartment on the left is for fabric conditioner, the blue thing is to save you measuring it out in the bottle cap. Number I is for prewash detergent (only if you're doing a prewash) and number II is the main detergent compartment, the one you would usually use. Hope this helps?

Which compartment is for the laundary soap


According to my information the dispenser drawer has four separate compartments for adding laundry products to the wash load. These compartments are:
1. Prewash Detergent Compartment
2. Main Wash Detergent Compartment
3. Bleach Compartment
4. Fabric Softener Compartment

Laundry products are diluted and dispensed automatically
at the proper time during the wash cycle. The separator in the Prewash and Main Wash Detergent Compartment can be moved to accommodate either liquid or powdered detergents.
