Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Our glasses are coming out with chapstick/lipstick

\015 Our glasses are coming out at the end of the cycle with chapstick/lipstick on rim. Also, our other dishes come out with food still on them. We have tried filling the dishwasher less full. We also tried all the other settings other than normal wash and still have the same problem. We have had several other dishwashers and have never had this problem.\015

Answers :

Is the water being heated properly within the washer? If not, the element may be open or not being powered properly. Open the door after the wash cycle has begun--the water should have steam rising from it.
