White Residue Yes...we have the same problem as well with the residue as was mentioned by several others. I guess our dishwasher is still under warranty since it is only 11 months old. It can be serviced if it is a defect or part malfunction but otherwise I may end up with a service bill. That would add to the ongoing frustrations we have with this appliance. Right now we call it our dish dirtier! We put fairy clean rinsed dishes in and....voila....out comes dirty dishes covered in white gr

The control unit was replaced 2 months ago at vast expense, and this problem only arose following the repair. The only suggestion from Asko to fix the new

Hi, our new home us the KUDP02CR Built-in and we have two issues: 1) dishes on top and bottom are coming out dirty; unless we scrub very food particle of dishes and cutlery they just won't come out clean. Either food is baked on or cutlery/glasses/plates have a cloudy residue 2) the soap dispenser doesn't always open; we've tried cleaning it ourselves but to no avail. Sometimes it opens, sometimes it leaks out the liquid and other times it's still shut . Any help would be great. We've tried

We have had this dishwasher for approximately 2 years. Dishes do not clean well.

They always have a fine residue on the outside (food). My husband just took the (blades) out that spin and dispense water and cleaned them. The water volume seems better now.
