Good afternoon,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your appliance today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your appliance.

I understand how frustrating that can be.

As per the manufacturer; this dishwasher is equipped by default with dosing units for dosing liquid detergent/rinse aid.

Manual dosing with powder cleaner is not intended.

Optionally, the dishwasher can be equipped with or prepared for an external dosing system.
