SOURCE: 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!!

SOURCE: jet dry dispenser doesn't work, gets spots on

If you are going to do the job, order part from searspartsdirect.com . they will give you the image, part # and the price. the door panel comes off and and the dispenser snaps in with tabs that you have to pry up and push either out or in. unplug dispenser and make sure you lubricate dispenser gasket. then reinstall by pushing in and listen for the snaps as you push in. re connect the plug put on panel and re screw panel if you want a service guy to replace tell him you only want a dispenser changed and how much willyou charge,if you ask 10 tech you will get prices .choose the most experienced and cheapest.

SOURCE: how much rinse aid do I put in my dishwasher and

The dispenser will take about 6 oz of rinse aid if completely empty. It will only need filled every couple months depending on how often you do dishes.

If you are getting poor drying performance or spotting use a rinse aid that is called 'Turbo Dry'.

The arrow is how much rinse will dispense each load. Start out near the center, if you see spotting or turn it up slightly and try another load.

SOURCE: dishlex global 300 : dishwasher dispenser won't

Hi just read your posting.The problem could be a faulty dispenser coil ,or the wires to it are faulty or the computer is faulty.Try selecting a normal eco wash and when you push the start button to start the machine hold the button in until the pre wash light turns off.This should make the dispenser activate straight after it fills.The only way to test which part is faulty is with an electrical meter.Have you or can you borrow one.If so then I can guide you step by step in finding the fault.please reply with additional information and I am sure I can help you further.Looking forward to your reply.

Rinse aid light on


Just fill the dispenser with some rinse aid and it will go off. Open the door and on the inside of the door next to where you put the tablet you'll see the rinse aid dispenser

Dishes still wet upon end of cycle


Check if the heater is working. This can be done by checking if the dishwasher has steam and dishes are warm when cycle is complete. Also check if the Rinse aid has not finished. Make sure the Rinse aid dosage is not at too low.

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.

You can choose from six different positions. It is normally set to 4.

How to use 'rinse aid'


Yes, remove that "dial" and pour in the rinse aid. Replace the dial and set it to one of those numbers (or maximum). If you use a low value and find spots on the dishes, try setting the value higher. This will increase the amount of rinse aid released during the washer cycle. The manual for another dishwasher, http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfimages/4a/4a78e197-7da5-432d-b3be-e176eb727d58.pdf , can give you an idea of how this works. The rinse aid information is on page 11 of that PDF.

I hope this helps.

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.

    My dishwasher is leaking huge amounts of foam to the floor. This is what happened before I ran the cycle: I had mistakenly poured detergent into the "Rinse Aid" slot in the inner side of the dishwasher...


    OK.... The rinse aid dispenser holds enough rinse aid for a lot of washes and dispenses very little each time. So you may nedd to have the dispenser emptied by a technician. If you take the door liner off you can see the back of the dispenser and maybe you can work out how to empty it. Holding the actuator in manually could allow the rinse aid dispenser to run out. Then wipe the tank dry with a towel. Putting high fat milk in the machine while it is rinsing will neutralise the foam. Just one cup will do. Good Luck.....T.

    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.
