Hi again, I agree with you that SOMEHOW dish soap got into this thing. This is a Whirlpool Gold tall tub dishwasher (new), and the rinse agent contraption 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 soup because it's only getting worse the more I rinse. Yikes!!
