You don't need rinse aids anymore. It rots the wiring...use FINISH tablets, the rinse aid is built into the tablet.

Where do you put rinse aid


For most dishwashers, there will be port on the door. Usually it will be near the detergent dispenser. On mine, the two items are in one grey plastic enclosure. The rinse aid port is on the right side of the area as you look at the dishwasher door from the front of the dishwasher. Look for a knob surrounded by a few numbers and a few symbols/words. In one direction, the dispenser will be closed; no rinse aid will be released. Turn the knob fully in the other direction, it's open and the cover can be pulled up to allow for refilling the dispenser.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with your dishwasher's make and model number for more information.

My Kitchen Aid Dishwasher model # KUDS40FVSS0 has blinking cancel, sani-rinse and normal wash lights. It will not run at all. We replace the control board and still nothing. Please Help!!!


I have had this problem. Mine didn't work for over a week and by the time the repair man came over to 'replace the board' it suddenly worked. The guy told me that if you use ANY type of liquid dishwashing soap (for your sink) and any residue/bubble is on the dishes, it can cause your dishwasher to break. I have no idea why but I've been really careful to make sure I wasn't using dish soap prior to putting them in the washer.

I've had 3 service calls on this dishwasher since I purchased it 3 years ago. I'm having similar service issues with my Kitchen Aid Fridge. And of course no help from Kitchen Aid.

My dishwasher says rinse aid,


From what I get from the question, it is asking to add rinse aid to the rinse aid compartment next to the dish soap compartment.

My Dishwasher leaves a white film on dishes.


check inlet water quality. If more calcium deposits in the water this could happen. Try using water water softeners.

If provision for dish washer salt check and add salt. ( not kitchen salt )

Finally check whether rinse aid compartment is filled with the liquid. If you are tablet, extra rinse aid not needed. Try all the above.

My dishwasher is leaving a white thick film on my dishes.


Check your inlet water quality. If hardness is noticed add salt as per the directions of the manufacturer. Refer user manual.

Check the rinse aid compartment and fill it with rinse aid as recommended by the manufacturer.

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 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.
