Reasons to Buy a Dishwasher with a Water Softener

Reasons to Buy a Whirlpool Dishwasher with a Water Softener

Facts about hard water:

  • Dishwasher detergent manufacturers are removing phosphates that optimize hard water's ability to clean dishes.
  • More cities are cutting back on water softening in their water supplies.
  • Hard water causes problems for dishwashers by staining and leaving mineral deposits.
  • Hard water affects cleaning performance and also builds up in water lines, reducing the life of your dishwasher.

A dishwasher water softener eliminates problems associated with hard water without the cost and hassle of a whole house system.

Benefits of buying a dishwasher water softener :

  • No investment in whole-house softener and having to carry heavy bags of salt.
  • Optimizes cleaning ability of water without the needs for phosphate.
  • Eliminates clouding and streaking of glasses caused by hard water.
  • Eliminates hard water stains and deposits in dishwashers.

Note: Refill salt only when the “Refill Salt” LED or the salt refill symbol is lit. Do not use salt tablets or any salt other than dishwasher water softening salt.
