Keep Your Dishes Sparkling Clean: How to Open and Clean a GE Dishwasher’s Rinse Aid Dispenser
Rinse aid dispensers are an important part of any dishwasher. They help to ensure that dishes come out of the dishwasher clean and sparkling. If your rinse aid dispenser is not working correctly, it can cause your dishes to come out streaky or spots. To keep your dishwasher in top condition, it is important to make sure that the rinse aid dispenser is working properly. Here’s how to open and clean a rinse aid dispenser on a GE dishwasher.
First, locate the rinse aid dispenser. It is usually located in the upper right corner of the dishwasher door. Depending on the model of your dishwasher, the dispenser may be hidden behind a flip-up panel or it may be positioned outside the door.
Once you have located the dispenser, open it by using a flat-headed screwdriver. Insert the screwdriver into the notch on the side of the dispenser and gently pry it open. The dispenser should open to reveal the rinse aid compartment.
Remove the rinse aid compartment, and inspect it for any buildup of detergent or hard water minerals. If there is any buildup, clean it off with a damp cloth. Then, check the nozzle to make sure it is not clogged. If it is, use a needle or a small wire brush to clear the clog.
Next, fill the rinse aid dispenser with the appropriate amount of rinse aid. Most rinse aid dispensers require about 1/4 cup of rinse aid per wash cycle. Be sure to use the recommended type and amount of rinse aid for your dishwasher.
Once the dispenser is full, replace the rinse aid compartment and close the dispenser. Secure the dispenser by pushing the notch with the screwdriver. Once the dispenser is closed, your dishwasher is now ready to use.
By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your rinse aid dispenser is working properly and your dishes come out sparkling clean.
