However - after 2 months of use the dw leaked and ruined my tile floor.
I didn't connect the two until reading my manual for my brand new dishwasher. It says to use a rinse agent, but only do vinegar every couple months since it is an acid and will wear away the parts.
I'm still not sure if they are connected. The dishwasher was here when we moved in 8 years ago. So it was probably time for it to bite the dust anyways...
Now I am nervous about using vinegar in my brand new dishwasher. When I first read the manual, I thought it was just marketing to get me to buy expensive jet dry.
Now - I'm not so sure.
What do you all think???
For the first 8 years or so, we used vinegar about once a month. For the last year or so, we've used it nearly every time we run it.

We use Earthfriendly? WaveJet. It is natural jet dry. LOVE IT. We also pour some vinegar in the basin with every wash. It helps because we have hard water. This and trader joes detergent is the ONLY thing that works for us - after years of trying.
I've put vinegar in the jet dry dispenser for years and have never had a problem. *shrug*
