Dishes and the dishwasher look dirty after they run, like it redistributed dirty water. The door is very dirty/filmy except right under the soap dispenser, like someone squirted dirty water on it but wiped right under the soap dispenser. If I run it a second time with vinegar it gets clean, but that is crazy, esp since it takes 2 1/2 hours a load. I have 2 of them and both are doing it. I have changed soaps, added more soap, used less soap, pre-rinsed dishes, put them in filthy, used jet-dry, no

All of a sudden about 1 month ago my stainless steel dishwasher started getting a strange white film on bottom which now is starting to turn crusty, It is affecting the soap dispenser badly and certain black plastic utensils being washed come out with this white film. Mysteriously, all the dishes, glasses, silverware come out perfectly clean. What is causing this? It is getting worse.


You could try adding vinegar to clean the white film off. If you wanted to be aggressive with it try using CLR to clean off the film from the dishwasher. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDS01FLSS Built-In Dishwasher

My Frididaire Dishwasher Model FDB1250REC1 is discolored inside. Its a browninsh color and it has gotten on my Corningware dishes and stained some of them. I can get most of the color off the dishes if I scrub hard. I have run cleaners for the dishwasher thru and cleaned it temporarly.

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

Got a new Kenmore dish washer in mid January. Worked fine for a couple of weeks then so-called "clean" dishes were covered with a residue from, I assume, was the dishwasher soap. I tried cascade action pacs, then cascade powder and finally, cascade gel. Nothing helped. I ended up having to use SOS pads to get the "crud" off of the dishes and silverware, and use regular dish soap to hand clean each dish and saucer and bowl...as well as each knive, spoon and fork!

I have a Kenmore Ultra Dishwasher. The bottom arm spins, the top doesn't, although water drips out. The water fills up under the heating element. The top dishes aren't getting clean and the bottom aren't as clean as they used to be. I also noticed that the soap dispenser is open, some of the soap is gone, but there's still some soap in left in the dispenser. This never happened before and it happens all the time now.

Our whirpool dishwasher seems to be cleaning the dishes here and there, missing some. The top shelf of the dishwasher does not seem to be cleaning at all. Also the soap dispenser does not seem to be quite empty of soap when the cleaning cycle is done. It is running fine. Could it have something to do with the panel where all the buttons are? Could the sequence be off or something? Thank you Awaiting your reply

I have a GE dishwasher model # PDW7880. The dishes are not clean even after running the dishwasher for two cycles. Also, the soap often doesn't dissolve. There are no dishes blocking the soap dispenser so I'm not sure why this is happening. In the manual, it says the air gap or disposer is clogged. Where is the disposer? Thank you. Sue

Hi, I have a Fisher Paykel DD603I (integrated) dishdrawer unit.

I have removed and cleaned the spray arm, drain filter, filter plate and bottom of tub. Found nothing clogged or particularly dirty. Put all the parts back in and everything moves freely. Ran it empty, and same problem occurred.
