Cannot unscrew cap on rinse aid compartment in door of Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III

Last month I added a Rinse Aid liquid to my Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III dishwasher (about 2 - 3 years old), with no problem.

But today I can't remember or figure out how to unscrew the little plastic cap (it is surrounded by #s 8 down to 1, and the pointer is now at #1. The outside control panl light light signals "Add/Refill Rinse Aid."

I believe I must unscrew and remove cap in order to add the Rinse Aid liquid. BUT HOW?

Can you help me?
Thanks,

The cap doesn't come off, you just have to open the door all the way. then, when you pour the rinse aid into the dial area, it will get sucked into the dispenser. but if the door isn't open all the way it won't go anywhere and will overflow on you.

You also need to make sure that the dial area is not clogged. (forceps and/or rinse)

My 6 year old Whirlpool dishwasher is loud


This is a bad wash pump. Looking at about $175 for just the sump assembly. You could do it yourself, but unit would need to be uninstalled.

Dirty dishes, pump acid wash.


I would not recommend using acid in a dishwasher it could lead to premature seal failure and damage the internal components.

There are cleaners that can be used that are dishwasher safe such as Lemi-Shine, Glisten, Rinse Aid dishwasher cleaner etc. Vinegar works pretty good too.

Depending on what the symptoms were a pump cleaning may be needed, before you act check out these tips I put together, feel free to send me a message back with any questions.

Same problem. 2-3 inches of water left in the dishwasher at end.


Inspect for plugged drain screen. Sometimes you have to take apart the bottom area for access...

Liquid soap mistakenly used - bubble explosion


Fill the detergent cup with fabric softener for a full cycle. Don't be alarmed if bubbles seep out.

Finish off with a white vinegar wipedown of the insides if it still feels soapy.

Not cleaning properly


Our Whirlpool Quiet Wash plus is 20+ years old and was on its way out the door because of erratic white residue, spotting, and film.  Nothing worked: vinegar, different soaps, more soap, less soap. Today I opened it up and started digging behind covers and checking the insides - multiple places were clogged with a soap/mineral film - ugly! I sprayed the insides with Restore 4 (a tile cleaner) and scraped and brushed and broke loose the hidden deposits. The only thing I didn't open was the sump pump - but now know how to do so. (thanks FixYa) Then I added about a 1/2 quart of vinegar and ran it full hot on the heavy wash cycle, added more vinegar between each cycle and let it dry.  It looks super inside - the gunk is gone.  I am now washing a load of glasses and am hoping for the best!

I have sand in tall glasses when washed on the top shelf


jalexandruna the lid you opened on the dispenser that has 1-6 is where you pour in the rinse aid. As to if it will help or not, this sand issue may be hard water. Try using a eviromentally friendly detergent which is high in Citric Acid. Or try running a dishwasher cleaner like Dishwasher Magic thru the dishwasher to clean this residue out. Hope this helps
