Symptoms: Dishes not dry

Possible Causes:

  1. Improper loading.
  2. Rinse aid supply depleted.

Symptoms: Scratches on glassware

Possible Causes: A water or chemical reaction with some glassware. Usually caused by some combination of soft or softened water and alkaline washing solutions reacting with the glassware. Can be accelerated by poor rinsing, overloading and excessive temperature.


  1. The condition may not always be preventable. To minimize the possibility of etching, use minimum amount of detergent.
  2. Use of the appropriate programme.
  3. Use of a rinse aid may also help.
