Having problems with your GE Dishwashers ?

White film is all over my inside of the dish washer & dishes

\015 White film is all over my inside of the dish washer and it coats all of my dishes. how do I solve this?\015

Answers :

This sounds like excess soap or not enough water. You may also have really hard water.
Turn on machine wait until it starts running see how much water is inside. there should be a 1/2 to 1" +/- in the bottom but not enough that the wash arm would be touching and not enough that the door would be leaking when you open it. This could also be a circulation problem set wash arms a certain way and observe that they have moved when you open after running for a minute or 2.
Please let me know if I can do anything else to help.

I have had my Bosch dishwasher for about 2 years. Over the last 8 months or so my dishes come out with a white film over them. I do have hard water, but have had it for over 20 years without a problem like this. The white film is all over dishes, silverware and the inside of the stainless steel washer. I use a rinse agent and have tried many detergents. I have used vinegar to clean the inside. What can this be?

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

The inside of the dishwasher used to sparkle & clean the dishes very good, now the dishes look dirty & inside looks dull with a white film. I have tried cleaning filters & taking arms offs to check for blockage, making sure the Jet Dry dispenser is properly filled, the hose going to the dishwasher does not appear to be kinked, how would I check inside the dishwasher to see if it's kinked there? Do you have any other suggestions? please 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. There is a white film on glasses and the inside of the appliance. I also just noticed that the upper arm isn't turning. There is about 1/2 cup of water standing in the drain area (not visible until removing the filter tray at the bottom of the appliance). Is this normal? The obvious problem is the upper arm but it seems like the rin

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!
