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.

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.

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.

I don't know where to put the Rinse Aid


It might seem silly, but you open the front load fully, so that's it's lying flat and then you pour the rinse aid over the holes in the near left hand corner (where you might otherwise think you have to open the trap door for the rinse). The rinse aid will flow quite neatly into the reservoir and hey presto, once it's full (you'll know it's full because it'll start to back up and overflow) you're back in business. No more annoying rinse aid light!

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!!
