I've mistakenly filled my dishwasher's rinse aid compartment with commercial grade eucalyptus disinfectant. Does anyone know how I can empty the rinse aid compartment?

Vacuum out with a wet/dry shop vac. Suction will pull most of it out. Then fill with water and do it again. You should be good to go.

How much salt goes in dish washer


You don't put salt in a dishwasher unless you want to ruin it.

2. You ONLY use a detergent specifically for dishwasher use as the cleaning agent and you 3/4 fill the soap dispenser in the washer (normally fitted into the door on the inside) with the dishwasher powder.

3. If there is a separate small compartment in your dish washer for a "rinse aid" solution to be used, you can use a rinse aid product designed for dishwasher use only. If there is no rinse aid compartment (this is also normally fitted to the inside of the door - if fitted on your machine) then you cannot use a rinse aid in your washer.

4. Don't use any other product in the dish washer.

What brand of deliming agent should be used when deliming this unit?


The chemicals used for this unit are not brand specific. As long as you are using a commercial-grade delimer, you will be fine. Do not pick up a delimer from your local supermarket. Those are not designed for commercial warewashers and can cause further problems. Ecolab is a common brand used . The have a delimer called Lime Away that is very widely used. Also, please remember to drain the water out of your dishwasher and disable your detergent and rinse aide before filling it back up. Then add your delimer and run the unit in manual mode for as long as necessary. Then, drain the unit again, rinse out the wash tank area, enable your detergent and rinse aide, and fill the unit back up. You should be ready to run now.

Whirlpool gold diswasher - sudddenly dishes/glassware/silver are all cloudy. rinse aid doesn't help. have tried running machine empty to "clean out" pipes, etc. plz help.


alot of people think the rinse aid is full but, its not. how to properly fill unit.
1. open compartment
2.fill with jet dry
3.close compartment
4.lower and raise door 3 times
5. open compartment
6.add more jet dry
7. lower and raise the door to see if it still looks full.
the reason for this is there is air in the dispenser and this process will take out the air to be completely filled the dispenser.

Greetings from Downunder, i have a HDWSE12 dishwasher Rinse aid light flashes all the time and it won t go. I put dish liquid in rinse aid container - still flashes. Don't normally have to use rinse...


the rinse aid compartment has to be one of the biggest things in your unit. it helps with drying process or you will have wet dishes, helps with spots, and also with the cleaning process, this is what you can do . add jet dry or rinse aid not soap .fill compartment then close door ,then raise and lower door 3times then open the compartment door and add more repeat this process until you cant add anymore. this will pull all of the air out of the dispenser and allow you to fully fill compartment . the light should go off .

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


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

I want to change my rinse aid product


run it through a couple of empty washes or use it just to wash dishes without rinse aid. this should allow you to add rinse aid into the container after each wash there after just add more rinseaid. it could take a while to get full rinseaid coming out but eventually there should be only rinseaid in the container.

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!!
