To remove liquid dish detergent from the rinse aid dispenser, use a clean medicine dropper or turkey baster to suction the dish detergent from the dispenser. It may be necessary to clean the dishwasher with vinegar to completely eliminate excesses suds.

Stop the dishwasher as quickly as possible, and fill a clean medicine dropper or turkey baster with clean water. Squirt the water into the Jet Dry dispenser, then suction the water back into the dropper to remove the liquid dish detergent. Repeat suctioning out the rinse aid dispenser until the water is no longer soapy. If a baster or medicine dropper isn't available, use a clean, wet cloth to remove as much of the dish detergent as possible. It is necessary to remove the suds from the dishwasher after cleaning out the rinse aid dispenser.

To remove soapy water and suds from the dishwasher, scoop the water out of the bottom of the machine with a cup or similar container. Use a sponge or clean towel to remove the last bit of water from the bottom, sides and top of the dishwasher. After all the soapy water has been removed, pour a 1/2 cup of white vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher, then sprinkle a 1/4 cup of salt over the vinegar. Allow the dishwasher to run for a few minutes to completely remove the remaining soap, then stop the dishwasher to check for suds. If suds are still visible, repeat the vinegar and salt cleaning process.
