Re: Beaumark jet dry dispenser
I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your question is: Beaumark Whisper Wash IV dishwasher jet dry dispenser does not appear to be working ( not using any jet dry) do they plug up or malfunction, if so how do you get it to repair or unplug?
The liquid jet dry dispencer only dispences a few drops in the last rinse. It is not uncommon for it to go a few months before needing refilling so it may not "appear" to be working. Are there spots on your glasses? That's the real test. If there are then just buy the jet dry that comes in a little basket that you hang from the top rack. Replace when it's empty and forget about the auto dispencer. If the glasses are clear then it's working and don't do anything..

Use a shop vac and suck it all out. Then, spray some Pam-type cooking spray grease into the jet dry reservoir and then, A) start a normal wash cycle and stop it a few minutes after it starts the spray action. Then, open the door and look for suds. B) If you see suds, spray them with Pam spray to knock them down and then C) cancel the wash to drain it out. Repeat ABC until all the suds are gone.
Then, whatever you do, DON'T put dish soap in the jet dry reservoir again!
Sometimes dishwashers become clogged with water minerals and they need to be cleaned of these minerals. White vinegar works pretty well. Place some white vinegar in the dishwasher , about one cup full, and also place white vinegar in the jet dry dispenser, and run dishwasher without any dishes in it. Maybe that will work.....
Make sure the water is 120 degrees at start up and also that the jet dry dispenser has jet dry. This aids in the clean rinse and spotting on dishes during wash, but most importaant is the water temp. Must be 120 at start up or you get an almost totally cold water wash.
White streaking is caused by too much rinse agent. (jet dry) Most all dishwashers now have adjustable rinse agent dispensers, so you can set them to a lower setting when you have soft water, and a higher setting if you have harder water. The adjustment is generally right where you add the jet dry. Other possiblilities would be a leaking jet dry cap, or a defective jet dry dispenser.
Try "Dishwasher Magic" - which is really just citric acid. You can also use white vinegar in an empty wash cycle. You may also want to try different detergents, and if you can, turn the jet dry setting up and use a bit less detergent.
Mkae sure you are running kitchen hot water faucet before starting dish washer. If not you are getting mostly a cold water wash thru out the cycle. Also make sure the jet dry dispenser is full. Always use the liquid jet dry as the small cubes you can get do not work nearly as well.
If your dishes or glassware appear filmy or spotted following a complete wash cycle, adjusting the amount or type of detergent you're using and adjusting your hot water heater's water temperature may solve the problem. But before you do either of these, put a rinse additive (such as Jet-Dry) in the rinse dispenser to improve the sheeting action of the water.
First you'll have to determine whether the film is removable or permanently etched. To do this, soak a glass in undiluted white vinegar for about 15 minutes. Or, you can wash the glass with warm water and concentrated dishwasher detergent or use a high-phosphate detergent (such as Glass Magic) according to label directions.
If film comes off, it is probably caused by hard water minerals, improper amounts of detergent, or unsuitable water temperature. See "Doesn't wash well," above.
Permanent etching is often caused by a combination of soft water and excessive heat or detergent. If glassware is permanently etched, there isn't anything you can do to make it clear again. But you can avoid future etching by taking these steps:
1) Be sure hot water entering the dishwasher is no hotter than 140 degrees F. Don't use extra hot settings, such as "Power Scrub" and use "Energy Saver" dry cycle.
2) Adjust detergent amount.
3) Don't pre-rinse your dishes before loading them in the dishwasher. Food particles on the dishes actually help the detergent and drying agents clean better.
