Not a very common issue,the unit only spits a few drops of rinse aid every use, so assuming you filled the compartment , that will hold enough rinsing aid for 35-40 washes before needing to be refilled. is it possible taht you havnet waited long enough for it to use this much detergent?

Dishwasher won't allow me to add rinse agent


Well, you don't have to rip the WHOLE machine apart, just the door! Usually takes about 6 to 8 screws (using a T15 torx screw driver). Depending on the model, you might only need to take off the lower half of the door (all below the control console), or you might have to take out all the door screws. Then remove the detergent dispenser (6 more screws, this time a 3/16" hex head). Then you can remove the wires to it (unplug the DW first!), and pop the dispenser out. Take it over to your sink and turn it upside down and shake it. You might try running hot water over the inlet port to clear up any dried-up residue. You will probably get some water into areas you don't want (like the coil and connectors), but when you are done, you can use a can of compressed air (or "duster" cans) to blow the water out. If that doesn't work, then you will probably need to replace the whole dispenser; but hey, you're already halfway there - you've removed the old dispenser. You can buy new dispensers at SearsPartsDirect.com, RepairClinic.com, EasyApplianceParts.com or AppliancePartsPros.com.

White film left on the dishes after going through the dishwasher. Why?


Too much rinse agent. If you are using powder or gel, set pointer knob on rinse agent dispenser to a lower setting. If you were using the tablets, they have rinse agent built into them, and the additional rinse agent from the dispenser equals a double dose, so the film shows up. Stop using tablets until liquid rinse agent dispenser is empty.

Glasses have a film when dishwasher is done.


There are several things that could cause this; 1. The rinse agent dispenser is out of rinse agent(Jet Dry). 2. The dispenser is not working and is easy to replace by removing the four screws that hold the door panel on and the two that removes the dispenser(be sure the breaker is turned-off). 3. The water temperature coming into the unit from the water-heater is not hot enough. 4.Your water may need to be tested for excessive minerals or chemicals. 5. Low grade detergent may not dissolve correctly.

Put dish detergent in rinse agent dispenser by accident


Hello and welcome to Fixya.

Aside from physically removing the dispenser assembly ( which would be quite involved and include taking the door panel off ) you should be able to "nuetralize" the dish"soap" by adding as much "white vinegar" as possible into the same location as the soap...the jet dry reservoir.

In fact you may have to try this several times, but you could also try pouring straight water into the reservoir, but that will take some time since it is "soap" as opposed to detergent, hence needing a lot of water to de-lute it to much of a degree.

I'd go with the "white vinegar" and repeat that several times through a "rinse & hold" cycle. ( do not add any dishes or cutlery...run it empty )

You can also add a couple of tablespoons of "vegatable oil" directly into the bottom of the dishwasher and some of your regular "detergent" before starting the "rinse & hold" cycle. This will give the soap something to react with and the "detergent" will also help "neutralize" the soap,,,hopefully breaking it down as a result.

To answer the second part of your post...

The effect is going to be oversudsing in the rinse cycle since this is when the jet dry/rinse agent is dispensed in the cycle. So what I'm hoping to accomplish with these suggestion's is to minimize the oversudsing or prevent it all together until the reservoir is "purged" of soap.

Let me know how you make out. It usually works in the cases I've had...eventually. I've seen plenty as you are not the first nor will you be the last...we all screw up, that's life ;o)

Good luck.

White film on dishes and interior


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.

Does not dry dishes


check 2 things, first make sure that the rinse dispenser is full of "jet dry" or some other type of rinse agent. it has to have some to be able to provide a "sheeting" to allow water to drip off the dishes.
the other is to make sure you are using the heat dry and your water at the kitchen faucet is above 120 degrees.
no heat dry and too cold of water can cause condensation to form and keep the dishes wet.

Where do I add my rinse agent???


Hello,

I have the same dishwasher, KUDS01FLSS. All you need to do is pour the rinse agent (We use Jet Dry) directly into that circle like plug with the line through it that you mentioned above. It acts like a funnel.
Pour the rinse agent in slowly as it takes time to drain into the dispenser. Just watch the little sight glass to the right of the rinse agent fill funnel. It will begin to darken (or turn blue if you use Jet Dry) as the dispenser starts to get full. I just pour it in slowly and when the rinse agent does not flow down the funnel any longer, it is full. Be sure to wipe up any spills or excess rinse agent. Hope this helps you.

Good Luck,
Tom
