Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

My wife filled the dishwasher with regular dawn detergent instead of the jet dry stuff. How can I get this soap out of the system? She said she put quite a bit in and only realized what she had done after she was done. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Dominic

Can you easily hook up the hot water supply to the unit to a cold water supply? if so it will purge the system faster,but if not,just keep running the unit without soap till its purged of soap and no suds left

How to Clear out dish soap from the jet dry resevoir?


Use a shop vac and suck it all out. Then, spray some Pam-type cooking spray grease into the jet dry reservoir and then, A) start a normal wash cycle and stop it a few minutes after it starts the spray action. Then, open the door and look for suds. B) If you see suds, spray them with Pam spray to knock them down and then C) cancel the wash to drain it out. Repeat ABC until all the suds are gone.

Then, whatever you do, DON'T put dish soap in the jet dry reservoir again!
:)

Good luck

There are soapsuds in the bottom of the dishwasher when the cycle is done


This sounds like the dishwasher got the wrong type of soap. It is a real problem to get the wrong soap rinsed out..follow the directions given by the repairman..it may take 5 or 6 cycles... The jet dry is just an extra in this issue...it will be okay when the soap is fully rinsed out.

Put dish detergent in rinse agent dispenser by accident


Hello and welcome to Fixya.

Aside from physically removing the dispenser assembly ( which would be quite involved and include taking the door panel off ) you should be able to "nuetralize" the dish"soap" by adding as much "white vinegar" as possible into the same location as the soap...the jet dry reservoir.

In fact you may have to try this several times, but you could also try pouring straight water into the reservoir, but that will take some time since it is "soap" as opposed to detergent, hence needing a lot of water to de-lute it to much of a degree.

I'd go with the "white vinegar" and repeat that several times through a "rinse & hold" cycle. ( do not add any dishes or cutlery...run it empty )

You can also add a couple of tablespoons of "vegatable oil" directly into the bottom of the dishwasher and some of your regular "detergent" before starting the "rinse & hold" cycle. This will give the soap something to react with and the "detergent" will also help "neutralize" the soap,,,hopefully breaking it down as a result.

To answer the second part of your post...

The effect is going to be oversudsing in the rinse cycle since this is when the jet dry/rinse agent is dispensed in the cycle. So what I'm hoping to accomplish with these suggestion's is to minimize the oversudsing or prevent it all together until the reservoir is "purged" of soap.

Let me know how you make out. It usually works in the cases I've had...eventually. I've seen plenty as you are not the first nor will you be the last...we all screw up, that's life ;o)

Good luck.

the best way to use your dishwasher is the way it was designed.
if your unit has a compartment for jet dry or rinse agent then you should add and fill that compartment with rinse aid. try not to buy soap with any extra like soap with jet dry or shine plus . because when you fdo that sometimes customer think that they dont need rinse agent . big mistake. rinse agent is deposited at a certain time in the cycle. diod you know that is you use lets say jet dry and a soap with shine plus or rinse aid in soap the machine can over suds? as a tech trust me i have seen it.let me know if i was helpful. drop a 4thumbs up post

Will not clear soap from machine, have to rinse multiple times


are you using regular dish-washing detergent....not liquid dish detergent like dawn....dawn and the like suds up tremendously....regular detergent is manufactured so it will not suds up.

does it drain completely? sometimes a blocked drain will keep enough soapy water in the basin that when the rinse cycle comes on it essentially throws soapy water back on the clean dishes.

hope this helps

Dawn in the Jet Dry Dispenser


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. ;)
