What should I do if I mistakenly filled the rinse aid dispenser with liquid dish soap?

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher model numbers 665.1374*, 665.1384*. I mistakenly filled the rinse aid dispenser with liquid dish soap. What are the consequences? Can I continue to wash dishes as usual? What changes in soap and/or procedures should I follow before the dish soap is consumed?

how did you suck the dispenser with your shop vac? Mind has a plastic thing on it and I cannot suck it out.

Thank you so much for the shop vac idea. I tried using a medicine dropper syringe which worked but slowly...I was too lazy to go get the shop vac at first. But that took care of it --like you said repeated 3 times and it was done. Note to self.. do not buy large bottles of Jet dry and place them next to the dish soap--then grab one in a dark kitchen to fill the dispenser just before going to bed. Caught it right away--but a little dish soap goes a long way. IBy the way---I took a wet wash cloth and made a mote around the shop vac nozzle to create the best suction I could and it worked very well.
