There is no way to drain it, you will have to flush it out. Use a turkey baster to squirt water in until it is completely flushed out. It will take quite a bit of flushing. Once flushed, it will be full of water, so you can flush that with rinse aid or wait for it to dispense. Or, you can replace the dispenser.
