It may not hurt the machine, but it leaves soap on the clean dishes. You can't really remove the reservoir without dismantling the entire door. it's pretty straightforward, but takes a little time and effort. If you're not prepared to dismantle the door to get to the reservoir, you -could- try cleaning/rinsing it out with a turkey baster and a small diameter piece of plastic tubing. Just suck everything out, then fill it with rinse water and suck that out as well. But you'd have to fill it with rinse water over a dozen times to really get it clean. Hope that helps. ;)

You will need a technician to remove the rinse aid dispenser and empty the windex out. Or just buy a rinse aid that can be hung from the upper rack. The amount of liquid released from the dispenser is a small amount and I don't think it would cause a problem.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Dishw. Error code CL

this just happened to ours and it turned out to be the gasket that seals the door.

when you see the CL error and the door is indeed shut, pull gently back on the door. if you hear a click and the unit starts running again, it may be the gasket.

ours lost it's ability to keep the seal, allowing enough 'play' in the locking mechanism for it to think the door was not closed.

Hi puretonedoug,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Beaumark Whisper Wash IV dishwasher jet dry dispenser does not appear to be working ( not using any jet dry) do they plug up or malfunction, if so how do you get it to repair or unplug?

The liquid jet dry dispencer only dispences a few drops in the last rinse. It is not uncommon for it to go a few months before needing refilling so it may not "appear" to be working. Are there spots on your glasses? That's the real test. If there are then just buy the jet dry that comes in a little basket that you hang from the top rack. Replace when it's empty and forget about the auto dispencer. If the glasses are clear then it's working and don't do anything..

Feel free contact me again!

I accidentally put Mr. Clean in my dishwasher instead of Jet Dry. So far no problems. The dishes even look cleaner. I'm just wondering if it's hurting us by eating off the dishes, or if it's hurtin


It depends on the food that's on the plates. Deep fried, fatty stuff is bad for you.
As long as the plates and the machine has rinsed with clean water (run a cycle with no soap) all will be well, well, except for your arteries if you keep wolfing down greasy stuff.

Dishwasher showing wrench symbol after using dishwashing liquid


I am assuming this F1 error is coming in only one drawer and that you are able to run the second drawer as normal.

In the case of your dishwasher the F1 error occured because the foam would have overflowed over the drawer top into the base of the unit. This would have triggered a flood switch which is there to protect water damage to the dishwasher. You can either wait a few more days until the base of the dishwasher drawer unit dries up or you can dry it yourself.

To dry the base, extend the drawer as far out as possible (turn mains power off first). The use a few towels and push them on to the base. Pull the towels out and dry the base especially the centre of it with a hair dryer.

The F1 should disappear once you put power back on .

Hope this helps. You have a very helful child who sets the dishwasher up. I have to keep pushing my children to even empty it.

Too much foam in dishwasher, accidentally placed a hand soap dispenser in dishwasher foaming all over the place


Scoop out as much suds as you can (or with a wet/dry vacuum cleaner), then run a cycle without soap of any kind. Hopefully, that will get rid of the mess.

Not coming clean


Hi, Are you using Jet Dry Rinse Agent? It is very important to keep the washer supplied with this stuff. Otherwise, glassware will come out with a cloudy film and water spots. If you are using it, perhaps it is not being dispensed by the machine. I am having this trouble now, but my machine is about 10 years old, and has always turned out beautiful glassware unless it ran out of Jet Dry. Now, there seems to be a problem in my machine not dispensing it, and I was searching for a solution when I came across your posting. Baxterdog

Floor cleaner in jet dry resevoir


If you run the dishwasher it will produce suds coming out the door.You can take the door off and clean it all out. One remedy is to add a gallon of vinegar to react with the soap and prevent foaming, another solution is to add cooking oil.
