I have had my Bosch dishwasher for about 2 years. Over the last 8 months or so my dishes come out with a white film over them. I do have hard water, but have had it for over 20 years without a problem like this. The white film is all over dishes, silverware and the inside of the stainless steel washer. I use a rinse agent and have tried many detergents. I have used vinegar to clean the inside. What can this be?

I have a KitchenAid drawer dishwasher model kudd01dppa and it has a mind of its own starting and stopping in the middle of the night/day and chiming all different beeps and sounds like its computer is glitching out. We had a service person out and they changed the main computer board and it seemed to fix it for a few days then started again. They gave up. They also tried some sort of reset or reboot but nothing has fixed this intermitten but long term problem. Any ideas?

Dishwasher sounds like it is running normally, (no grinding sounds or anything)but there doesn't appear to be any water coming into the machine. we checked to see if there was a kink in the line or if perhaps it was a plumbing problem but that does not seem to be the case. I know the circular disk in the front of the machine needs to be down and it is, so can you figure out without seeing for yourself what could be the problem and if so is it worth fixing since I can probably replace it for und

Hello all, We have an Ikea Whirlpool DWF 416 that is a couple of years old and has never caused any problems. From today the door has stopped shutting properly. The electronics and internal mechanisms seem to be working fine, since when you turn it on the cycle starts - but only if you hold the door shut. Has maybe a catch gone? Any ideas for fixing a door-shutting problem like this? Thanks in advance! Dave
