KitchenAid Dishwasher streaking /residue

\015 Our dishwasher has stainless steel interior. It is around 2 years old. I use Cascade and Jet Dry products. Dishwasher has started leaving glasses and silverware streaked and cloudy. Even the inside of the dishwasher itself is has a residue on it and is streaked. The silverware and door of the dishwasher has almost a rainbow effect residue - kinda like oil on water looks like. I tried running the dishwasher empty with a cup of bleach on top rack and a cup on bottom rack with no effect.\015
