Why does my dishwasher use too much rinse aid?

Just thought I'd try using rinse aid in the available dispenser. I have a Kenmore ultra wash quiet guard standard stainless steel dishwasher. I'm washing dishes right now, so I don't want to stop it to give you the model #. The manual says it should last from a month to 3 months. I've almost used up the whole bottle in less than a month. I quit using it, but that seems odd. I did turn the knob to the lowest setting, since we have well water with a water softener. Please advise.

I have a six-week-old Kenmore UltraWash model # 665.1329 3K 114, and I am following all of the instructions in the manual about the proper way to use the rinse aid. However, my new dishwasher is dispensing the rinse aid too fast. I have it on the 1 setting, and the rinse aid needs to be refilled after running the dishwasher only 3 times in about 8-10 days. I checked the cap, and it's beautiful because it's brand new.
Does my dispenser assembly need to be replaced? If so, can it be replaced successfully in this model?
