Dishes and glassware are not clean after a cylce is done. I do not overload. You can even see lip marks and film on the drinking glasses. The silverware has white film on it. The cups and glasses have food particles in them. I've even tried using the pots and pan cyle on a regular load and they still don't come out clean. I do rinse before putting in the dishwasher. I use Cascade or Palmolive and I use a rinse aid. Model DU850DWGB1.

How does the Rinse Aid part of the FDB2000RFS1 dishwasher work? We got one donated to our non-profit organization and found all our dishes are coming out with a dry film all over them. I believe we have hard water in our office, and no water softener. We are wondering if the Rinse Aid would help this? We have no instructions, however, so are unsure as to how to use this???


If you have hard water, use Lemi Shine. It's the only thing that works. It is a detergent additive that completely removes hard water spots and film from your dishwasher. You can get it from your local grocery store. ... Dishwashers
