Answers :

We had the same problem and finally found a solution that has worked for us for many years. We found using dry powder detergents didn't work for us. They left a white film and scratched our glasses after years of use. We switched to Cascade All in One Gel and it stopped most of the film. Don't fill up the pre-wash with any detergent, if you have that option, just use the gel in the wash section and you don't need a lot. We fill it up to the lowest line and it cleans REALLY well, or what would be about 3 tablespoons or so. Next we use Jet Dry in the rinse dispenser and set it up to at least medium or 4 or 5 if you have a selection for your rinse dispenser. Next we put 1/2 cup of white vinegar in our dishwasher every time we wash. We pour it in the bottom right before we wash. We have been doing this for 9 years in our old dishwasher and a year in our newer one and have never had any trouble doing this. It leaves our dishes sparkling clean and the glasses aren't scratchy anymore. Make sure any trap down on the bottom of the dishwasher isn't stopped up too and once a month keep those spray holes cleared of any gunk by using a toothpick to clear any holes out of any gunk. Lastly, don't overload the dishwasher and make sure there is space between each dish and position all plates toward the center. Hope this helps. It has made our lives MUCH easier!

We have the same problem. At first, we were getting a horrible detergent film on everything. We thought that was because the detergent cup wasn't opening or the water was too hard or not hot enough. We kicked up the rinse agent as high as possible, switched to a liquid detergent, and only placed shorter items towards the door. The cup still wouldn't open consistently and our dishes still needed to be re-cleaned. We stopped closing the cup. No change. Why would liquid detergent leave a powder fil

We have had our dishwasher for quite a few years, and all of a sudden (within the past month), it has been leaving a gritty white powder on the dishes. We tried other soaps, and putting less soap in. We even tried putting rinse aid liquid in (which we've never had to use before), but it is still leaving the grit. What can we do to fix it? It is a Roper RU4300DQ3.
