Where does the rinse aid go?

I've misplaced the instruction book so although I know where the rinse aid goes, how you actually put it in and to what number do you point the arrow (presumably based on water hardness in area) ???

SOURCE: ZSF4126 - where do i put rinse aid!?

that dial with numbers is the flow rate for the rinse aid, just to the side of that there should be a little hole, it maybe under the flap where you put the powder, open the door fully, open the flap, find the little hole and pour rinse aid in there it should only hold about 1 to 200ml ( a small cup full? ) the dial should be set about halfway hope i have helped if so rate me please

SOURCE: how much rinse aid do I put in my dishwasher and

The dispenser will take about 6 oz of rinse aid if completely empty. It will only need filled every couple months depending on how often you do dishes.

If you are getting poor drying performance or spotting use a rinse aid that is called 'Turbo Dry'.

The arrow is how much rinse will dispense each load. Start out near the center, if you see spotting or turn it up slightly and try another load.

'low rinse' stuck on with full rinse aid, can't start wash cycle


Actually, if you look closely at that Low Rinse button or emblem, you will see a little lock symbol above the words "Low Rinse", and I'll bet THAT light is the one that is on. Basically, you have the control lock (or child-lock) turned on. To turn it off, you have to press and hold the Sanitize button for 3 to 5 seconds until that light goes off. Now your dishwasher will work!

Where to put rinse aid in cdw10 dishwasher


Rinse aid makes dishes sparkle more as it improves their drying. The rinse aid container is situated on the inside of the door. You should fill the rinse aid container when indicator lights up on the container and the rinse aid indicator light on the control panel flashes. You can use simple vinegar as a rinse aid (white is best but apple or malt is fine).

Adding rinse aid.
To open the dispenser, turn cap anticlockwise. Take care when you pour in the rinse aid to avoid it overflowing. You can regulate the amount of rinse aid used by the dishwasher, move the adjuster which you will find under lid. The amount of rinse aid needs to be increased if the dishes appear dull or you can see circular stains. The amount of rinse aid needs to be reduced if the dishes are sticky or see white streaks.

You can choose from six different positions. It is normally set to 4.

Accidentally put normal dishwashing liquid in the rinse aid space


Hello,

The amount you have put in although not good is not too serious.You can try putting nothing in dispenser for a few washes and see how that goes.If you are using the 3 or 4 in one tablets you should not need to dose with rinse aid or salt as it is in the tablets.

Hope that helps.

Im missing the cap that goes on the liquid soap[ screws on]kenmore dishwasher


You would be surprised that if you look around your house / garage you may actually find a cap that works. Otherwise sears is an authorized Kenmore dealer. So you could always purchase from them, have model number and serial number handy.

Put rinse liquid detergent in dishwasher rinse aid compartment.


I did the same thing with my Maytag dishwasher, several times actually, before realizing I was putting blue dish soap in the rinse aid compartment which then wouldn't empty. Then my Maytag started making ominous noises during the rinse cycle (appliance guy said it was "cavitation" noise).

Appliance guy wanted to replace the whole detergent/rinse aid compartment but since he told me the noise was probably caused by the dish soap stuck in the rinse aid compartment, I decided to try to get rid of it first. Here is the method that worked for me; it took most of a day but saved me parts & labor:

1. Get some white vinegar--I used nearly a quart.
2. Fill the rinse aid compartment to brim with the vinegar (overfill) but don't put cap on
3. Raise the dishwasher door slowly until the vinegar drains into the lower part of the chamber (at least this is how my Maytag worked)
4. Agitate the contents as best you can by rapidly shaking the dishwasher door up & down.
5. I also used a small plastic medicine dropper jammed into small openings on each side of the rinse aid compartment to agitate the vinegar by squeezing air into them.
6. Drain the compartment by closing the dishwasher door (move it to full vertical)--vinegar will drain into the bottom of the dishwasher.
7. Repeat above steps a couple times, then fill again w/vinegar, put the cap on and let it stand for awhile. Then drain and repeat the whole routine several times.
8. Blue-colored vinegar will come out which is a good sign (or whatever color your dish soap was).
9. After awhile, I started pouring generous amts of very hot tap water thru the rinse aid compartment, alternating with white vinegar. (No reason you can't use hot vinegar also.)
10. Eventually, all the blue stuff came out & the see-thru levels of the rinse aid compartment were completely clear/empty.
11. Run the dishwasher (I decided to not put any rinse aid in). I got some overfoaming (from the washed out soap) the first time I ran it which I probably could have remedied by adding more vinegar & possibly salt, but the noises were gone!
I just ran the cleaned out dishwasher a 2nd time & it was back to its quiet self with no overfoaming.

Takes some patience but hey, beats a big repair bill!!

Rinse solution stays on the glasses


First chech the machine is warming the rinse water and not rinsing in cold water then have your chemical guy come and check that the soap/rinse ad dispenser is not dispensing too much rinse aid and naturally make sure the machine is in fact ricing with water I have had it where a glass washer takes more rinse aid then i should and does not actually rinse with clean watr it was simply spraying the rinse aid wich sounded as if it was rinsing soulution was new pc board it was not changeing programs properly if you have and older machine it proberly has a timer this too can be a cuase of the problm if it is not clicking over to allow a full rinse cycle.Hope this helps let us know.

Rinse aid


On the soap dispenser you will see a knob with a red l.e.d. in it. turn that counterclockwise and remove the cap the rinse aid goes in there. You can fill it to the top.

there isn't a receptacle for the rinse aid. as far as the detergent goes just put a coffee measuring spoonful of detergent right in the machine and start it.
