GE Potscrubber Quiet power1....horrible film left on dishes, especially plastic & tupperware


Answers :

Hello,
\015\012The film is usually due to hard water.
\015\012
\015\012If you have hard water, you need to use gel or liquid detergent only. Try that and use smaller amounts.

Also, you can try flushing out the pipes by using a product called Dishwasher Magic, which is sold at OSH.

My Maytag Quiet Series 300 is not cleaning my dishes very well at all. My glasses always have grit left in them (even with Jet Dry), my coffee mugs have film left in the bottom of them and now even my plates and bowls aren't getting clean. I don't even put my pots or pans in there, so I'm not sure where the grit is even coming from. We have city water and I use a powder to clean with. Also, there has always been a film of dirt that never seems to get rinsed away right where the door opens. Also,

The dishwasher is not cleaning. It has left a residue all over the dishes especially colored plastic ware glasses. like it doesn't rinse but i have ran the extra rinse cycle and residue is still there. It has actually stained the dishes. Then ceramic dishes are not clean. And ones on the top rack feel like there is a coating on them that does not come off unless you rinse by hand.

Thick film left on alot but not all dishes. Especially dark colors. All of my black utencils are now filmy gray and won't wash off with hand wash/scrubbing.

I have a Whirlpool Quiet Partner 1, Model DU1055XTPQO. I use Cascade w/Dawn Shine Shield powdered detergent(filled to the mark on the dispenser cup) and Jet Dry Drying Agent.

The machine does not seem to rinse properly. We have checked the water fill level, water temperature, spray arms are not clogged, have determined it is not a hard water problem and have tried Glass Magic and CLR to verify the lattter. What else can we check to stop getting a film on everything in the machine? Plastics come out terrible, glasses and dishes foggy and sometimes still greasy. The model # is GU2700XTSY0 from the Whirlpool line of Quiet Partner 4. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!

Hi - I have tried all the usual tricks of running an empty load with vinegar, and the food particle filter seems to be the kind that isn't removable.

... Maytag Dishwashers

Kitchenaid dishwasher - small pieces of food are left on otherwise clean dishes. Water level comes to about 1 inch below heater coil. I ran it without dishes (or soap) and added about a quart of water so that level came to about 1/4 inch below heater and that's when I noticed food pieces on drain surfaces (nylon filter under bottom spray arm unit and circular plastic "trap" surrounding it). Spray arms holes are clear and water is hot.


It sounds as if you figured the solution out. The holes in the spray arm(s) get plugged by small debris, (tooth picks, seeds, bits of plastic like candy wrappers, etc) and the water does not reach the dishes to wash and rinse effective ... Dishwashers
