Hi Dan. Well, I'm learning the hard way about the rinse agent. In my note to Tom C, I just wrote: SOMEHOW dish soap got into this thing (rinse contraption). This is a Whirlpool Gold tall tub dishwasher (new), and the rinse agent mechanism is built into the machine (no basket). I've never had this problem before but I have a sneaking suspicion that a free sample of rinse agent (that I added 2 days ago) might have been mislabeled. I bet that it's dishwashing soap because it's only getting worse the more I rinse. Yikes!! Dan -- can I flush out this rinse agent mechanism that's built into the inside door?
