Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Cloudy Glasses Some glasses are getting cloudy from the dishwasher. I have a Jenn-Air ... usually use Light Wash, just tried the China & Crystal now, not sure if that will help or hurt.


Answers :

The problem is hard water and jet dry will not solve that. There is a new product out called The Dishwasher Filtration System. It filters the water going into your dishwasher leaving your dishes spot free with every load. It is very affordable and fits right under the sink. You will be amazed how sparkling your dishes look just after one load. You will love this product. Get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.
Cloudy...what do you mean by cloudy? Cloudy as in foggy? Or cloudy as in murky water?

Cloudy glasses My problem started suddenly when I tried one of those gel pac things. I discontinued using them, but no matter what I do now, including scrubbing the glasses crystal clear before I load them in, they come out horrible. I have tried every combination of gel, powder, and rinse agent, but I still have the problem.

Our dishes have white film on them. 5 repairmen have said they have no idea to the cause. We have tried everything vinegar, rinse aids etc. Could it be a pressure problem due to a plumbing default in the building of our home? We are not sure whether the top spinner rotates fast enough as well as the top glasses have always had this cloudy, greasy residue.

I've had my bosch DW 3 years and have had no problems until about 6mos. ago.Now the dishes seem to have a residue on them, and my glasses are very cloudy. My flatware is dulled to where I can't get it back to its normal shine.I've tried adding alittle vinegar and that hasn't helped.( I use cascade and a rinse agent ) It seems that the rinsing cycle is not working and the dishes aren't clean.. Is there something I can do before calling a repair guy out?

Clear glass dishes are cloudy. What is causing it? We have checked the arms--they seem to be working fine. Some days it does better than others--today they were extremely cloudy. I washed the glasses by hand and dried and it cleared most of the cloudiness off. I have tried two different dishwasher detergents.


You can determine the cause of cloudy glassware by soaking a glass in vinegar for 5 minutes. If the cloudiness is removed it is due to hard water deposits; make sure the salt reservoir is topped up. Do not worry about over-filling it.\015\012If ... Dishwashers

Cloudy glasses I have a Kenmore Classic dishwasher probably from the early 80's. It works fine except recently my glassware(new glasses) has started coming out cloudy(looking like there are soap spots on it) I have made sure I have the Jet Dry in there and I have even re-rinsed but they still look like that. Any suggestions as to why this is happening? Thank you Rita

My dishwasher is almost brand new and it doesn't do a very good job at cleaning the dishes. There are usually stuff stuck on the glasses on the top shelf. I've tried cleaning it by taking all of the stuff out of the centre but it doesn't seem to help. I've also tried changing to the vinegar jet dry and that seemed to help but I'm still having the problem. I thought that maybe it was just a cheap dishwasher but I'm told that it is actually a decent brand.

Hello! My 3 yr old Bosch dishwasher (I think it is a SHE 43) is doing two things: 1) leaving a serious white film on dishes and glasses 2) leaving grit inside glasses on the top rack (always on glasses placed on the far back right of the top rack) I've tried cleaning the machine with hot washes with no dishes, vinegar only, but no luck. Any thoughts? Many thanks for your help!


Hello. Since you have already cleansed the interior of your dishwasher, we must conclude that the problem is with the water itself. If you do not have a filter on your water, you may want to consider installing a dirt/rust filter, at least on the h ... Dishwashers

Soap has collected and hardened inside dishwasher and comes off and flakes on the dishes. I have tried cleaning with a few cycles of 1 cup vinegar (no dishes) and making sure the water is the hottest. I also tried Dishwasher Magic which did not help at all. Can I use Lime Away? Is that safe? Or will that poison me with the next cycle of dishes? Is there another solution? Thanks, Missi Walkyourbike

Hi, our new home us the KUDP02CR Built-in and we have two issues: 1) dishes on top and bottom are coming out dirty; unless we scrub very food particle of dishes and cutlery they just won't come out clean. Either food is baked on or cutlery/glasses/plates have a cloudy residue 2) the soap dispenser doesn't always open; we've tried cleaning it ourselves but to no avail. Sometimes it opens, sometimes it leaks out the liquid and other times it's still shut . Any help would be great. We've tried

I am trying to problem solve for dishwasher that is properly installed and is not working or even responding to being hooked up electrically. My husband tried to wire it and unfortunately wired it incorrectly the first time around (there were sparks and it blew the breaker.) We are thinking maybe it blew a fuse? Do they have fuses that can be replaced? I sure hope so! Help!!! -Alicia

The machine does not seem to rinse properly. We have checked the water fill level, water temperature, spray arms are not clogged, have determined it is not a hard water problem and have tried Glass Magic and CLR to verify the lattter. What else can we check to stop getting a film on everything in the machine? Plastics come out terrible, glasses and dishes foggy and sometimes still greasy. The model # is GU2700XTSY0 from the Whirlpool line of Quiet Partner 4. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!

My two year old Bosch dishwasher is not cleaning well and is leaving gritty food on most glasses, cutlery, etc. Worse on the top but also not good on the bottom. I have tried cleaning the removable filter on the bottom and rinsing the two 'wands' - one on top and on the bottom so that the little holes are not blocked. I've tried using the power scrub mode. I've run the dishwasher twice with detergent and no dishes. This has problem has persisted over at least a month. Can you please help me?
