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: Hoover hed6612 dishwasher wont work

We have had the same problem but have found a fix.
1. If any of the wheels have come off the top sliding basket/rack you need to make sure they are all back on for each wash ( ours are very loose! )
2. Push the top rack in FIRMLY before you wash - make sure it engages at the back.
That's it - solved it for us after months of problems.
I think that as the wheels get worn the top rack does not fully engage at the back and this is when the problem starts manifesting itself. We have some new wheels on order but they are taking ages to arrive.

The rinse aid light on my Miele dishwasher won't turn off even though the dispenser is full


There are two ways of dealing with this:

1. Leave it alone, checking the rinse aid every month.
2. Find the fault.

The fault is likely with either the level detector, which will probably mean a replacement rinse aid dispenser or with the cabling. Try disconnecting the detector cables and seeing if the light turns off (make sure it's the detector cables, not the doser). If the light turns off, the likelihood is that the detector has failed. If not, then the fault will lie elsewhere, possibly with the logic board.

My dishwashers rinse aid compartment red light is always on even after fillinf it us with rinse aid


That just means that your dispenser isn't sensing that the ring agent is full. You'll need to order and replace the dispenser to fix the issue.

Good luck

My dishwasher does not always dry the dishes completely - even though I use the same cascade with each use.


The most important thing to getting the best drying from this energy efficient, water conserving dishwasher is keeping the rinse aid dispenser filled. In my part of the US, I only see a rinse aid called Jet Dry.

The Cascade is the detergent powder and will not help the dishes to get dry.

Note: Even with the rinse aid full, some plastics will still be wet.

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!

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.
