Also, where do you put the detergent in a dishwasher?

Place the dish detergent into the dispenser, usually located on the inside of the dishwasher door. Wipe the detergent cup with a dry cloth first if it is wet or has residue.

Also, what can I use if I run out of dishwasher detergent? Just put three drops of liquid dishwashing soap (Dawn, Palmolive, Fairy, that kind of thing) in the soap slot of your dishwasher. Then, fill the slot the rest of the way with baking soda and close it. Your dishes will come out just as clean as if you used a dishwasher tab.

Also know, what dishwasher detergent is best for KitchenAid?

We just ordered a new one & cascade platinum is "recommended." I have found that the Cascade Platinum pods truly work the best in my KitchenAid. We have tried the Cascade gel in the past, but it does not work as well as the platinum.
