Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

I've got teeny-tiny white spots on my glasses and dishes. I tried one cycle of rinsing and it didn't go away. I topped off the rinsing agent and went thru a complete wash cycle again with no luck. I use liquid detergent and am leaning towards it being tiny bits of dried soap. I have a Whirlpool GU1200XTLT3 Thanks for any help you can offer... Diana

The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com. They have a new product out that solves this problem once and for all. It filters the water entering your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that cause these spots. Very affordable and guaranteed to leave your dishes looking amazing every time.
Diana have you tried to adjust the dosage regulator that is inside the fill cap area of the rinse agent container, look through your owners/operators manual it should help you in identifying and control of the regulator, it sounds as if you need to up the amount of rinse agent being dosed into each load of dishes. Good luck !

I recently bought a different type of dishwashing detergent for my Frigidare dishwasher and my dishes look as if they have not been rinsed. They cycled all the way through the drying cycle so the detergent dried on and was difficult to remove. I would like some advice on whether this sounds like a detergent problem or mechanical problem before I try another load. This washer is not new. It was in the house I bought and I've only been using it for about 2 months. (I usually use Casade Liquid and

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III (Model GU1200XTKB0). I have used it previously on "Normal" cycle and I always keep it on Air Dry. Last night I used the "Pots and Pans" cycle and it seemed to work fine. But this morning the Air Dry light is flashing and if I press a cycle key the Rinse Only light starts to flash as well. Nothing works. I have made sure that the console is not locked. Any suggestions? I do not have a Heated Dry button, only Air Dry. Thank you.

Drying problem Hi Our 3-day old LG dishwasher is not able to dry our dishes. After the cycle is finished 2 hours later, I open the door to find that water is everywhere. As if the washer is skipping the dry sequence completely. The "vent" on the inside of the door doesn't seem to have an outlet--why is this a vent if nothing can escape? The owner's manual says to use a rinse aid to help drying. I don't believe in using band-aid's; something else is wrong. Any help/advice is appreciated. Thanks,

Our Whirlpool KUDP01ILBS2 dishwasher isn't working like it used to. Dishes seem to be getting partially clean, they aren't getting dry at all and it seems they may be being rinsed/washed with dirty water. There is plenty of water in the machine when I interupt the cleaning cycle. I always run the hot water in the sink before I start the dishwasher so the first water into the dishwasher is as hot as possible. Also the sani-rinse light is flashing when the cycle "completes".

My dishwasher is leaving a film on all the dishes some of the times. Other times the appliance works fine but more and more often it is leaving a white film on all the dishes as though the rinse cycle is not working well.

Waste water was being used for a clean rinse. I've run the dishwasher with the drain dangling in a bucket,

I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a
