Answers :

The cause may not be your dishwasher.
\015\012Especially hard water may leave the residue. If you don't have that problem when you hand-wash, then check your pipes. Homes more than 40 years old may have galvanized pipes that eventually rust on the inside. The grit could be grains of rust from the pipes. If you do have galvanized pipes (rather than copper) then you may need to replace them. You could put in a filter as a temporary work-around, but that will eventually clog with the gritty material.

Have a GE Profile PDW8280 dishwasher. My dishes are not as clean as they used to get - dishes feel gritty and food particles keep getting stuck in the middle and lower arm spay holes. Is there something wrong with the filtering system? If so, how do I fix it. Thank you.

I have a maytag jetclean quiet pack dishwasher. The top dishes are not getting clean. The glasses always have sandy residue in them and sometimes orange juice etc at the bottom of the glass isn't removed. I have added jet dry, this doesnt work. I ran the rinse cycle today and opened it up during the cycle and I didn't see the middle pop up spin thing in the middle of the bottom shelf doing anything. It should be spraying during the rinse cycle correct? Thanks for your help
