Having problems with your Westinghouse 24 in. MDB421 RF Built-in Dishwasher ?

Type of rinse agent needed for dishwasher

\015 I have an old White Westinghouse Dishwasher and there is a little round compartment with a piece that twists out in the dishwasher door. It looks like the place you put the rinse agent, but I have poured 3/4 of a bottle in there and the cup never fills up. Should I be using a tablet instead of a liquid form of rinse aid?Thanks,victoria\015

My dishwasher recently started leaving a white, chalky residue on all the dishes. It wasn't gradual at all. One day everything was fine and all the dishes clean and the next they were covered in nasty residue. We've ruled out any issues with soap, rinse agents and hard water. A appliance repair guy came out and said the float was "tampered" with and said that he fixed it. He said that if the problem came back we need to order a new float assembly kit.

The dishwasher isn't cleaning well and doesn't use much rinse agent. I have tried and tried to figure out why the dishwasher isn't washing dishes well and I can't figure it out. I haven't called the manufacturer yet and maybe I should. I've changed the cycles and that doesn't matter. First thing is that it doesn't really use very much rinse agent, so my glasses look yucky. Second thing is that I can tell it hasn't cleaned the dishes well because the inside of the door isn't clean. With a s

KitchenAid dishwasher KUDS24SEBL does not drain after rinse. It goes through wash cycle, drains water completely , then it fills water for rinsing, runs and after that it does not drain. Cancel does not work after that. Water is very hot inside the tuba t that time. The dishwasher needs to be left for an hour or so before the cancel button can drain the water out.
