my rinse aid compartment is leaking. it is not from the knob. it is leaking from the compartment itself causing my rinse aid to drip on the inside of the diswasher door. Please tell me how to fix this.

If the cap is not leaking the the only other option to repair this problem is to replace the entire dispenser assembly.

The 8565814 dispenser assembly can be obtained from the following link:

Sears PartsDirect

and can be replaced as a do-it-yourself project if you're comfortable with such projects.

The image below will show you how to access and change the dispenser assembly. Remember to turn the power off first.

I hope this information helps resolve this problem but submit another question with any additional detail for further assistance.
