Question about Whirlpool 24 in. ADP5966 Free-standing Dishwasher
A full compartment of rinse aid is used up in about 5-6 washes yet the dishes still do not dry properly, I have tried adjusting the rinse aid dosage but this does not seem to make a difference.
Look for a blue or green streak on the door panel when you upen it to load the dishes. Does the washer sound different during the wash than it used to? If so your dispenser is leaking. This will also cause the water to suds up and not wash as well as it should. Start the washer with no detergent or dishes and let it run for 5 minutes, then open the door and see if there are a lot of suds in the water. Post back to let me know what you find.

Tips for a great answer:
Check the rinse aid indicator beside the rinse aid dispenser cap. If the indicator window is clear, refill the dispenser. The dishwasher will retain moisture and the heat dry option will not perform properly without rinse aid. Turn the dispenser cap clockwise and lift it up to remove it. Pour rinse aid into the dispenser until the indicator appears full. Place the dispenser cap over the dispenser and turn it counterclockwise to tighten it.
Load the dishes properly so that all dishes can drain after the rinse cycle. Do not overload the dishwasher. Towel-dry plastic dishes because they will not dry completely during the dry cycle.
Select the heated dry option on the dishwasher. The air-dry and energy-saving dry options will not perform as well as the heated dry.
