Put a bowl of water with a couple of slices of lemon in it. Put it on low power (no convection) and heat the water up to a simmer. Turn off the microwave and leave the door closed for 10 minutes. Open the door and clean with dish soap and water, or for tough marks something like Comet or Mr Muscle Kitchen cleaner as all the dirt will be soft.

I've never had a microwave oven that dispensed soap. Are you sure you posted this in the correct area? Also, manufacturer, make, and model number would be helpful when you do repost.

We stopped getting water from our Kenmore freezer door dispenser. I have verified the solenoid valve is working. The line from the solenoid outlet to the dispenser appears to be plugged (can't blow...

Many times the lines get frozen as they run through the back of the refrigerator section. Sometimes simply turning the temp up in that section will open the lines. Additonally, you might have to remove everything from the unit and totally defrost it to clear it. IF it's Ice.
Do you use a filter for the water comming into the unit? IF not you could have a blockage. If that is the case you will have to find where the block is and remove the block.

Automatic ice cube dispenser will not dispense cubes, will not rotate

Do you hear the motor run when you "dispense" (door has to be closed)? If so, take the dispenser out and look for broken parts (seems like normal).

Where is the rinse aid on a dishwasher?

It is located in the inside of the dishwasher. On kenmore /whirlpool/frigidaire/galax
there is a roundknob located in the soap dispenser box which you turn counter clockwise
and pull out.
this is where the rinse aid is poured in. There usually is a small window to see it.
On hotpoint, kenmore there is a large knob inside the door (usually grey) it turns counter
clockwise and pulls out.
hope this helps.

LG refrigerator model #LRFD25850TT water dispenser no longer working

Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer. Or use a hairdryer on the inside of the door below the dispenser.
