How long should rinse aid last before needing to be refilled?

How long should rinse aid last before needing to be refilled?

The amount of rinse aid used per cycle differs depending on the dishwasher setting you are using. The rinse aid gauge will show when the amount is getting low. Make sure that you are reading the gauge with the door in a fully opened position. The gauge only registers correctly when the door is in the fully opened position. If the door is tilted and/or on an angle, you will not get an accurate reading. It is recommended to use a colored rinse aid, such as blue, so that you can more easily see the rinse aid level in the gauge. Refill the dispenser with rinse aid when the amount is low.
