SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Dishwasher leaks when jet dry rinse is added everytime.

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.

SOURCE: new dishwasher, rinse agent dispenser leaks,

With any new appliance, contact the manufacturer and utilize the warranty. Replacing parts on your own is costly when you don't need to and frankly, with the problem you've described, the insulation will need to be replaced and possibly many of the electronic components in the door as well, not to mention the rinse aid dispenser!.

I'd also be concerned that the door panel might be prone to rusting now that it's been soaked, etc.

Call the Bosch customer service group at 1 800 944 2904 and see what they can do for you.

By the way, there have been several product recalls on the SHE series of dishwasher in 2009 alone. While some are voluntary, another was mandatory. Again, utilize produce warranties.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

it may leak because:
1. Seal is bad. (o-ring?)
2. a spring on mechanism may be loose, missing or broken.
3. the container that holds the fluid may be cracked.

Rinse agent dispenser leaks won't allow to fill


If the dispenser is leaking, it's probably because of a faulty cap, or faulty or missing seal in the cap. And if you can't add any rinse-aid to the resevoir, It's probably full of water (which leaked in through the same faulty seal).

Rinse agent (blue liquid) is leaking into the bottom of the dishwasher compartment. Every time I refill, it leaks out within a few days. Any idea what is causing this?


There is a lot of info missing like brand and model, but it a general way they all work the same. A preset amount is dispensed in the last rinse cycle by an electric circuit. Sense this appears to leak the entire amount the valve/ opening is not shutting. A repairman would just replace the rinse aid dispenser assembly. They are hard to clean because the are a molded/sealed assembly.

I have a 2 year old GE dishwasher that the rinse agent dispenser stays full & the product never comes out or works. My dishes come out clean, yet spotted.


If you are handy you could take the front panel aprt and see if the tube that connects to the selonoid to dispense at the proper time is plugged with crystallized chemical or it could be broke and just leaking out the door and into the bottom of the dishwasher.

No receptacle for rinse agent


U can buy a soap with rinse agent in it already. I think one brand that offers this Finish. I don't know anyway of adding a receptacle to an older washer.

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.

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!

Why does my Fisher and Paykel DD605SS stalls midway through wash cycle? I'm not sure if the following incidents are related but my Fisher and Paykel DD605ss now stalls part way through the wash cycle. A few nights ago I loaded the dishwasher hit timer and left it to run in the wee small hours. When I got up the next morning the circuit breaker had tripped on the circuit with the dishwasher. Once I reset the circuit breaker I started the dishwasher. I almost always run it on Normal (Eco) 154 minutes. It ran and then started beeping which I presumed was it finished. It continued to beep and was displaying an E4 error. After searching the E4 error I took the most popular solution and unplugged the machine and left it without power for about 10 minutes. After that plugged it back in and hit the start button again. It seemed to run well and when I walked into the kitchen late in the cycle it was displaying 28 minutes to go with a scrubbing brush flashing in the LCD. I left it alone and went about my life and returned to the kitchen about an hour later and it was still on 28 minutes to go. I hit pause and had a look, there was water and foam in the bottom of the draw. I took the wet plates out and hit the rinse option to see if it was a pump problem. The rinse option ran and the draw was almost empty. I then took the rack etc out of the raw and cleaned it all out. There was a little gunk but not much. I put a light load of dishes in the machine and ran it on the Normal wash mode. It started up and made all the right noises so I left it. I came back to the kitchen and it was stuck on 94 minutes with the flashing scrubbing brush. I paused it, took the dishes out and again ran the Rinse option which drained the draw. So my question is are the three events linked? Circuit breaker tripping, E4 error and random stoppages during the wash cycle?
