White film on dishes and glasses - Asko 1385 Dishwasher


Answers :

If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is toadd some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1 cup of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

Hello! My 3 yr old Bosch dishwasher (I think it is a SHE 43) is doing two things: 1) leaving a serious white film on dishes and glasses 2) leaving grit inside glasses on the top rack (always on glasses placed on the far back right of the top rack) I've tried cleaning the machine with hot washes with no dishes, vinegar only, but no luck. Any thoughts? Many thanks for your help!

My Kenmore Elite model # 630.16302402 dishwasher isn't getting the dishes clean. A lot of food is still on the dishes after cleaning, especially inside the glasses.

I have the same issue to the point where pans (that have been in a dishwasher for years) now are permanently "white filmed" on handles, all my cooking utensils are the same way, and my glasses are etched.
