Re: Dawn in the Jet Dry Dispenser

It may not hurt the machine, but it leaves soap on the clean dishes. You can't really remove the reservoir without dismantling the entire door. it's pretty straightforward, but takes a little time and effort. If you're not prepared to dismantle the door to get to the reservoir, you -could- try cleaning/rinsing it out with a turkey baster and a small diameter piece of plastic tubing. Just suck everything out, then fill it with rinse water and suck that out as well. But you'd have to fill it with rinse water over a dozen times to really get it clean. Hope that helps. ;)

How to Clear out dish soap from the jet dry resevoir?

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!

Good luck

Where is the soap dispenser and jet dry dispenser on a Danby countertop dishwasher (with window)

I've got one of these countertop washers at home. The twist off dispenser you're talking about is for the jet dry (at least on mine) and there should be an area on the right side of the door for your soap. Hope this helps!

Dishwasher does not dispense jet dry. Is full all the time

If the jet dry dispenser is full, it will last you about 3 or 4 months depending on how often you use the dishwasher

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 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.

My daughter accidentally filled the Jet Dry dispenser of our dishwasher with Windex.

You will need a technician to remove the rinse aid dispenser and empty the windex out. Or just buy a rinse aid that can be hung from the upper rack. The amount of liquid released from the dispenser is a small amount and I don't think it would cause a problem.

Beaumark jet dry dispenser

Hi puretonedoug,

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..

Feel free contact me again!
