Liquid dish soap in rinse agent dispensor!

How do i remove liquid dish soap from the rinse agent dispensor in our almost new kenmore elite 13122 dishwasher? I really would like to avoid a service call! I think perhaps I'll have to remove the front door cover to access the dispensor, remove it, and thoroughly rinse it out over and over, but I really don't know how to go about this. Please help as my manual doesn't show ziltch about the dishwasher's inner workings!

THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!

I put liquid dish soap (not even dishwasher soap) in my rinse aid compartment of my dishwaser...will this hurt the washer? Do I need to get soap out and how?


yes it will foam up unlike you have never seen before
by disassambling the door and removing the risne agent dispenser and very throughly draining the soap it may get all of it out(rinse it with only cold water since hot water promotes sudsing while cold water kills sudsing) if even a few drops remain it will suds like crazy during the rinse cycle (when the agent is dispensed) to remove all suds from the machine fill a cup of white vinegar placed in the upper rack such as if you would drink from it (not upside down) and run the d/w of a normal cycle
a better but unfortunitly more costly solution would be to replace the rinse agent dispenser

Have Kenmore Elite 665 11yrs old, bakes soap on dishes top and bottom racks. Tried powder and liquid soap,no difference.Tried water heat with no rinse dry,no difference.


That seems like it's probably related to the recent ban on phosphates in dishwashing soaps. Quite a number of people have found that their dishwashers aren't working as well and are leaving spots and soap behind now that phosphates are not being used.
A little vinegar may help, but the best answer would be to use a water softener.

The dishes do not rinse properly--despite rinse


run some calcium lime and scale remover throught the unit on an empty wash cycle just to get rid of any build up that may be there.
turn the rinse aid down to about half way.
also check the phosphours content of you washing agent.
there is a lot of factor involved with leaving film on the dishes, it could also be residual soap content that is sticking to your dishes.
reduce the amount of soap a little.does not matter if it is liquid or powder.
once every three months you need to run cleaner through the machine.
last thing but very important make sure the incoming water temp i no lowe rthan 120 degrees.

Extra suds due to liquid soap in the machine overflowing. How do I drain it?


This is strange. Are you using an electric dishwasher liquid soap, OR are you using a dish soap that you manually use to wash dishes?
REGULAR dish soap liquid that is not specifically made for dishwashers creates a foamy suds with lots of bubbles that will in fact bubble out of your dishwasher. on the other hand. Electric Dishwasher detergent will NOT create foamy suds with lots of bubbles.
Switch your soap. The next cycle any residue suds or soap will be gone as long as you use the proper liquid detergent. I would also recommend using a rinse agent which further helps break down and rinse off residue.

I've got teeny-tiny white spots on my glasses and dishes. I tried one cycle of rinsing and it didn't go away. I topped off the rinsing agent and went thru a complete wash cycle again with no luck. I use...


Diana have you tried to adjust the dosage regulator that is inside the fill cap area of the rinse agent container, look through your owners/operators manual it should help you in identifying and control of the regulator, it sounds as if you need to up the amount of rinse agent being dosed into each load of dishes. Good luck !

Older dishwasher-kenmore ultra wash. Serial no ff3902085, model no :110764511. I have no info on how to run it. Does it take rinse agent? D. Wickes


Hi landwix,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: older dishwasher-kenmore ultra wash. Serial no ff3902085, model no :110764511. You have no info on how to run it. Does it take rinse agent?

Operation is simple and yes it will take rinse agent if you so desire. Rinse agent can be purchased either liquid, dry or combined with the soap in a tablet (I don't recomend). The dry comes in a tiny basket you hang from the upper rack. The liquid goes in the dispencer next to the soap dispencer. Just twist the plug counter clockwize about 1/4 turn and lift out, pour in no more than 4 oz. slowly and replace plug. Forget about it for a month. It will use a few drops with each use. Fill soap dispencer about half full and close. Choose wash cycle (normal, etc.) then press start. Thats it.

Feel free contact me again!
