We have town water, so adjusted to normal hardness. We don't use rinse agent. We have never needed it.
Just to add my 2 cents...

Your dishwasher is very similar to most of Whirlpool designed dishwashers.

You may want to check the chopper assembly (#6 on the diagram). If it's clogged or damaged, the pump will never create a sufficient pressure in the system.

You can find much more useful information in one of our previous threads: whirlpool dishwasher
