Where does the jet dry go in a kenmore quiet guard 3 dishwasher? I see a round screw in cap that says "rinse aid indicator" - should I pour the jet dry in there? Thanks.

RINSE AID! Buy a bottle of Jet Dry or similar rinse aid liquid. Fill the rinse aid dispenser completely. Run dishwasher as usual. Water will no longer cling to the tub or the dishes. Newer dishwashers require rinse aid to dry properly due to reduced energy consumption.

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.

I have a new stainless steel Samsung dishwasher. It doesn't seem to be drying properly. Dishes and dishwasher still very wet after cycle is completed.


Hello

Your dishwasher has been designed to use a liquid rinse aid. Pouring a liquid rinse aid into the proper recepticle in your dishwasher when you add dish detergent greatly improves drying performance. You can further improve drying performance by selecting the Sanitize option, in addition to the other options you've selected, and increasing the water temperature.For Best Results, use Jet-Dry Turbo

Spots and film form in your dishwasher's rinse cycle, when detergents are already down the drain. FINISH® JET-DRY® Rinse Agent works in the rinse cycle, lowering the surface tension of water and causing it to sheet. Better rinsing results in less spots and film.

If these recommendations do not improve drying time, please contact Samsung Customer Care

The dishwasher doesnot dry anything.


  • 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.

    What is the purpose of the lock and refill by the location where you put the soap


    Hi,

    That is the rinse aid dispenser.

    Turn the knob to refill and pull it off. Pour rinse aid into the area below the cap you took off, once full put the cap back on and turn to lock.

    Rinse aid is critical for proper drying and rinsing.

    Where do I put salt into a G665 model


    Salt and rinse aid are low if the indicator light is on.

    Salt is placed in a compartment in the bottom of the inside of the dishwasher. It has a round approx 10cm diameter screw cap.

    Rinse aid goes in under a flap in the inside of the door near the powder dispenser

    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!!

    Cannot unscrew cap on rinse aid compartment in door of Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III


    the cap doesn't come off, you just have to open the door all the way. then, when you pour the rinse aid into the dial area, it will get sucked into the dispenser. but if the door isn't open all the way it won't go anywhere and will overflow on you.
