The dishwasher in the house we bought stopped working well after one month.  One of the problems is the rinse aid dispenser.  We fill it up, set it at the lowest setting (#2) and run the dishwasher once a day.  Here is the problem.  The fill indicator says we need more rinse aid after 7 days.

Any ideas?

Do I have to replace the whole soap and rinse aid dispenser assembly?

Thank you great gurus.  You have helped us so much on our never ending appliance issues.

Is the cap sealing tightly?

Thank you!  The cap appears to be fine, so we will be replacing the dispenser assembly.

Any tips on how to do this?  Looks like it should just pop out, but I don't want to force anything.

Nope, it does not just pop out, you have to remove the outer door panel, there is a metal frame around the outside of the dispenser held on by 3/16 nuts on the outside of the door.

Thank you for all of your help!  Starting by replacing the cap.  New cap seals more tightly than existing cap.  Maybe that will do it.  Otherwise, we will just pop out the assembly and put a new one in.  Hooray Appliantology!  This site and the ease of ordering parts has put us back on track again.

We want to extend a huge thank you to Appliantology and the wonderful people who provide such great information.  You have saved a dishwasher from the landfill and saved us mucho $$$$ for the purchase of a new appliance.  Without even having to post I searched this forum and found this thread

http://appliantology...re +ultra +wash

 

that lead me to this awesome set of discussion, instructions, and video. 

http://fixitnow.com/...ilt-dishwasher/

 

Figured out that the pump was cooked.  Just not up to the job any more.  I ordered the parts from you and asked my husband to get the tools.  We set a 9:00 pm date for tonight (after the kids were put to bed) to pull out and install a new circulation pump motor and housing assembly in our dishwasher.  In one hour we had the dishwasher apart, cleaned, reassembled, and washing again.  We followed that video and the instruction sheet, step by step.

 

You guys and gals are superstars!!  We cannot thank you enough!!!

Next Thursday night at 9:00 pm ....  Tackle the noisy clothes washing machine that you have helped us figure out what to do, but is a bit of an intimidating job.

So very grateful  ......

Anne
