Hello, this is Dave and I'm happy to help. This problem will have a two correction. The dispenser will need to be replaced because trying to clean and dilute the detergent will not be possible. To cut the suds in the dishwasher you need to put in cooking oil. Start with a 1/2 cup and add more if needed. Before the dishwasher runs very long you need to block the outlet of the rinse aid dispenser until it is replaced. Is replacing the dispenser something you want to try yourself?
