Cascade ActionPacs™ come in premeasured doses to make adding detergent easier than ever. Every Cascade ActionPac is designed to dissolve quickly in your dishwasher, and is septic-safe. Just pop an ActionPac into your detergent compartment, start the cycle, and the job is as good as done!
Cascade Platinum ActionPacs™ are powerful enough to clean an entire load of dishes with up to 48-hour stuck-on food—with no pre-wash needed. To use, just place one dishwasher pac in the detergent chamber, close the dispenser door, and run your dishwasher as you normally would.
If your ActionPac is not dissolving, there could be a few reasons why.
Something is blocking the dishwasher detergent cup or release door. From small utensils to large pot handles, lots of things can get in the way of the detergent dispenser, which traps your ActionPac and prevents it from dissolving fully. To avoid this issue, make sure you are correctly loading your dishwasher.
Your dishwash isn’t getting any water. To check for this, put a large measuring cup or mug in your dishwasher on the top rack, open end up. Next, run your dishwasher. When the cycle is done, the cup should be completely filled with water. If it’s not, you may not be getting enough water flowing in.
Lastly, on very rare occasions, the detergent pac may stick to the dispenser cup, preventing it from being dissolved fully. This one is a little different than the dispenser door not opening—in this case, the dispenser door opens, but your ActionPac is still stuck in place. To avoid this, make sure your hands are dry when handling the detergent pac.
Following these easy steps should ensure that when you open your dishwasher, the Cascade ActionPac and the dirty messes are both completely gone.
