Most likely the actuator for the rinse aid dispenser is not functioning.

I don 't know how to fix the dispenser; however, there is a jet dry product that is sold in stores that is in solid form, you just clip it to the upper rack. I have seen it in Wal-Mart in the detergent aisle.

SOURCE: 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!!

The rinse aid is leaking out of my 1 yr old KD12WW1 dishwasher. Sometimes after only one wash it is completely depleted


Hello Dorothy Grieve,

My favorite site (appliancepartspros) is NOT showing
your model number...

Here (usa) the dispenser is about $50 to $60 to purchase.

I am thinking if you search for SPARES... with your
model number... you might have better success.

KD12WW1... rinse aid (not found)...
Kelvinator KD12WW1 91123003500 Dishwasher Rinse Aids

Lots of fun...
but the site needs some work to show all the "SPARES"

Use their number (Call Now 0844 49991110)...

No receptacle for rinse agent


U can buy a soap with rinse agent in it already. I think one brand that offers this Finish. I don't know anyway of adding a receptacle to an older washer.

Where is the rinse aid dispenser on a maytag performa?


Hello Chris.

The rinse aid dispenser is usually in the door right next to the soap cup, usually it has a round cap that you unscrew to refill. For me to be more specific reply with your model number as found on a label on the rim around the door and i will look up your exact model.

Hi,

The rinse cycle is the same as the wash except the wash uses detergent and the rinse uses rinse aid.

The rinse cycle will dispense rinse aid if you have filled the dispenser. Check this first, that would be the most likely cause. Also in the spring as the water table table in most cities begins to rise the water quality goes down, extra calcium in the water can cause this problem.

Here is a link to help understand that. Let me know if you have questions.

I have a Maytag Jetclean and it doesn't rinse well


Probably unlikely that it's clogged, but rather defective.

Hi,

The reason why i asked you for the make and model no. was that the rinse aid dispenser was actually banned on many older dishwashers because of a fire hazard.As far as the dispenser, try using bleach, not too much, 1/2 cup and run with out dish washing soap. it should work.
