  • Rinse aid assists with the drying process in your dishwasher. 
  • You may find that your dishwasher tablets have rinse aid included. 
  • However, if you are suffering from poor drying results, try also filling the rinse aid dispenser. 
  • Open the lid and pour in the dishwasher rinse aid until it reaches the marking max. 
  • Wipe up any spillage edges as this will avoid foaming.
  • Then replace the lid and make sure it locks back into position. 
  • This should be enough for around 10 to 20 washes, depending on the setting. 
  • Your dishwasher will indicate when the rinse aid reservoir needs topping up. 
  • Bear in mind the products can vary, so it's best to always check the manufacturer's instructions.
