Having problems with your Frigidaire Professional Series 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher ?

The glasses in the top rack often have residue in them. The temp is 140 degrees F and the arm is moving freely. I use a rinse agent and am careful about how I load. I don't like washing the glasses by hand after being in the dishwasher. Any ideas for a solution?


Answers :

Most of the time it is from some food and grease and hard water residue the builds up in the spray arms and the sump area.
\015\012You can by an dishwasher clear from most any store it is usually located in the same isle as the dishwahser soap.
\015\012Run this through your empty dishwasher on a normal cycle.
\015\012There has also been speculation that reduceing the amount of soap and rinse agent will help prevent this cloudy or filmy appearance on the glasses.
\015\012It does not matter what brand of dishwasher you have there have been the same complaints about this on the newer models that after awhile usually about the six month period this starts to happen.
\015\012I hope this helps good luck have a great day.

My lower rack will not clean bowls or cups and I have to be very careful how I place plates. The serviceman has been out twice and I have run vinegar through multiple times with no improvement.

We have been using this model since Sept. 2007.When new, it worked very well. It has over time, performed less then we would expect. Not only do we have to scrub dishes by hand before placing them into washer,they some times require hand washing after being washed by machine. Not only are they dirty, the glasses are covered with a cloudy white film. We have not done any maintenance or service to this dish washer. Does this washer require some sort of service or attention. Please advise. Thanks

Kenmore model#587(Frigidaire) leaks under door. New install. Had machine for a year plus before install. took off front panel- can see water squirting past lower door gasket as wash arms rotate. cause is water running down door during wash cycle piles up in the channels molded into the lower left & right side of the wash tub and pushes out the sides of the lower gasket. looks like a design issue- called SEARS, they just want to sell me a new gasket! go figure. any ideas on a fix?
