Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My LG dishwasher stainless steel tub is getting an ugly residue. I have tried to clean it with a stainless steel cleaner but it doesn't help. I am also not happy with the cleaning of my dishes. I have tried different brands of soap but nothing works. I think I may have made a mistake by purchasing it. Help


Answers :

If residue is a brown color it can be minerals in the water.You can buy a stainless steel cleaner, just put it in the machine and run it thru a cycle.

We have a model # 1385 Asko dishwasher. For the last few months we have found a film over all our dishes and pans washed in the dishwasher. We have found vinegar removes the film, but the need to constantly wash the already-washed dishes in vinegar to be defeating the purpose of using the dishwasher! We have used Cascade Complete for years, but we have tried different brands now, but nothing solves the problem. Can you please help us??????? Nancy Vocci

We got all the soap out of the hole and took towels to dry out the tub, but F1 comes on even when the washer is turned off. We have the double tall dish drawer in stainless steel.
