    I have a little "door"about the size of a deck of cards on the inside of the door of my dishwasher. Maybe you might be putting tablets in there? In the dishwashers I have used the rinse aid filler point and the powder/tablet compartment are aside by side. If that makes sense.

    The plastics don't usually dry completely. As a pp said plastic doesn't get hot enough to dry. most of my plastics are dry enough and those that aren't, I put on the dish rack on the sink for a couple hours or just leave in there till I need to use the dishwasher next.

    Pretty much everything is wet without rinse aid. When I use rinse aid I never have to dry anything.

    My machine is brand new too. They wash pretty damn good. and dry pretty well.. but dry just that much better with rinse aid in the machine. I have to admit i find the powder is a little to abrasive.. I might try some of the tips and tricks I have seen on here when I empty this packet.

    Even plastics are dry with Rinse aid. They might need a shake to get of pooled water but no more effort then if I was shaking off a table cloth after dinner.

    Just use white vinegar instead of rinse aid. It's like using vinegar as softner when washing clothes...your clothes will dry faster.

    Also, if you're using powder instead of tablets, don't fill up the powder drawer thing. You only need to put less than half. Trial it and see how you go.

    I've heard vinegar ruins seals? No idea if it's really true but it makes me hesitant to use it.
