Rinse aid is a simple — but necessary — addition to your dishwashing cycle.
If your dishes aren’t drying properly in your dishwasher, it could be because you need to use rinse aid. Many modern dishwashers are designed to use liquid rinse aid, in part because it helps keep water droplets from forming.
Even if your detergent says it has rinse aid included, the experts at Sears recommend that you still use rinse aid. There’s a special dispenser for rinse aid in your dishwasher. Watch our video to learn how to fill it properly. The good news? You only have to do this every one to three months.
How to Fill a Dishwasher Rinse Aid Dispenser
Remove the dispenser cap.
Pour rinse aid into the opening until the indicator is full. Dispensers can hold enough rinse aid for one to three months.
Replace the cap tightly so it doesn’t come off.
Clean up any spills, which can create excessive suds.
