White film left on the dishes after going through the dishwasher. Why?


Too much rinse agent. If you are using powder or gel, set pointer knob on rinse agent dispenser to a lower setting. If you were using the tablets, they have rinse agent built into them, and the additional rinse agent from the dispenser equals a double dose, so the film shows up. Stop using tablets until liquid rinse agent dispenser is empty.

Glasses have a film when dishwasher is done.


There are several things that could cause this; 1. The rinse agent dispenser is out of rinse agent(Jet Dry). 2. The dispenser is not working and is easy to replace by removing the four screws that hold the door panel on and the two that removes the dispenser(be sure the breaker is turned-off). 3. The water temperature coming into the unit from the water-heater is not hot enough. 4.Your water may need to be tested for excessive minerals or chemicals. 5. Low grade detergent may not dissolve correctly.

Where do I add my rinse agent???


Hello,

I have the same dishwasher, KUDS01FLSS. All you need to do is pour the rinse agent (We use Jet Dry) directly into that circle like plug with the line through it that you mentioned above. It acts like a funnel.
Pour the rinse agent in slowly as it takes time to drain into the dispenser. Just watch the little sight glass to the right of the rinse agent fill funnel. It will begin to darken (or turn blue if you use Jet Dry) as the dispenser starts to get full. I just pour it in slowly and when the rinse agent does not flow down the funnel any longer, it is full. Be sure to wipe up any spills or excess rinse agent. Hope this helps you.

Good Luck,
Tom

Rinse agent runs out


Without the manufacturer and model number, it is very hard to help much. If this dishwasher is several years old, this may be the beginning of many, many problems so you may want to consider replacing the entire dishwasher.
It you want to attempt a repair, you start with removing the door panel screws around and near the door gasket. When you get it open, take some pictures of what you see. Closeups to hep you reassemble.
Zero in on the rinse agent dispenser reservoir and look for leaks. Identify what has failed and order either locally or on line.
Good Luck!

Rinse agent dispenser


The only "fast" way is to remove the dispenser completely and rinse with warm water until clean! (by removing front panel and then disconnecting jumpers and clips...can be tricky to do alone, as you need 3 hands to pry clips from dispenser to remove from door!) Oshie.
