The rinse aid despencer is leaking

The "jet dry" dispenser seems to be leaking. I have it set on "2" and have tried partial filling but it still leaks. This is evident by a "blue" thin line ending in a small pool on the dishwasher floor. The dishwasher is a tall tub GU2300XTV

You might look into getting a new cap. It seems like part of the problem is that the threads on the cap or dispenser are damaged. This will cause the seal to not work correctly and thus leak the rinse aid.

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 is the soap dispenser and jet dry dispenser on a Danby countertop dishwasher (with window)


I've got one of these countertop washers at home. The twist off dispenser you're talking about is for the jet dry (at least on mine) and there should be an area on the right side of the door for your soap. Hope this helps!

There is still soap running down from the dispenser after each cycle.


Hello creativee798 - If you put regular dish soap in the dispenser, then you could encounter oversudsing and leaking through the door. Here are some tips for minimizing and maybe even eliminating the sudsing problem:


If you have a turkey flavor injector, you may be able to use this item to **** the detergent out of the rinse aid dispenser. Open the dishwasher door and fill the dispenser with water and then **** the liquid out with the injector. You may also be able to use a syringe without a needle that is used to dispense liquid medicine for a child or baby. If you alternate filling the dispenser with water and then removing the liquid, you will eventually dilute or eliminate the detergent that was in the rinse aid dispenser. Once you dilute or eliminate the detergent, fill the dispenser with water. Set the dispenser on the highest setting and run a cycle to see if you see excessive suds during the final rinse cycle. If you don't see a suds problem at the end of the washer cycle, then I recommend taking as much of the water out of the rinse aid dispenser as possible and filling it up with rinse aid and then returning the dispenser to the normal setting that is appropriate for your water hardness. If you are seeing excessive sudsing, then you may need to try to flush the dispenser with the fill and drain routine again. You may need to change the setting to the minimum and see if you detect a suds problem. If not, then allow the dispenser to empty at the minimum setting and then fill it with rinse aid after it is empty. I don't recommend using the heated dry until this problem is completely resolved. This could cause residue to dry on the dishes. If you detect residue on the dishes after the cycle is finished, you may need to wipe the dishes off as you remove them. Excessive suds and possibly residue on dishes would be the only consequence of this mistake. The excessive suds could cause leaking out of the front of the dishwasher door if it is severe enough. The dishwasher may not drain properly if excessive suds are present. The above tips should help you minimize or eliminate these consequences, if any proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately.

I have a brand new dishwasher and it leaves a white residue on my dishes. I has jet dry filled to the top. please help.


Check the manual for the settings for the rinse aid dispenser, and try the recommended settings. Also, try using less detergent. It sometimes takes a little tweaking to get the right amount of soap and rinse aid for a given machine with a given water hardness.

Tub leaks, with a partially filled tub (2.5 inches measured from the lowest point over the pump assembly.) Promblem occured after the washer was idle for 3 weeks. Have just replaced the main water inlet...


I am assuming leaking when it is running, not sitting idle. Leaking from the door? Fill and run unit for 1 minute with no detergent. Open door. Are suds present? Suds turn into water when they drop to the floor. Suds can flow over the lip of the tub and drip to the floor. Oversudsing, Sometimes old detergent breakdown. Rinse aid dispenser leaking will cause oversudsing. Combination of all in one products will cause many problems. If suds are present after running unit a minute, pour a cup of cooking oil in unit. Run and fill it a few times until suds are gone. Possible most common cause is dispenser latch grommet.

White film on dishes and interior


White streaking is caused by too much rinse agent. (jet dry) Most all dishwashers now have adjustable rinse agent dispensers, so you can set them to a lower setting when you have soft water, and a higher setting if you have harder water. The adjustment is generally right where you add the jet dry. Other possiblilities would be a leaking jet dry cap, or a defective jet dry dispenser.
