I have a Kitchenaid dishwasher Model KUD101lLWH6 - Serial number FR4205761. I have not changed soap or rinse product since I got the dishwasher but I am getting a white looking film throughout the dishwasher. My dishes seem to have the same film. Should I be cleaning it (dishwasher) with something? Thanks, Rosalie Buhnerkempe


The white film that you are talking about could be two things. First is the quality of your water, having sediments either through the water system or from the water heater because the water that goes into the dishwasher is taken from the hot water ... KitchenAid Dishwashers

Dishwasher Issues My dishwasher is not properly dispensing the dishwasher soap. The flap on the soap container seems to be opening, but the soap is always caked in there after the cycle is finished. I have tried leaving the soap flap open, but that just seems to deposit soap particles on the dishes in the front of the bottom rack. Also, there is often a greasy film left on many of my dishes. Is this a soap issue or a water issue? I am very frustrated! Can you help?

Foggy Glasses Glasses are very foggy after a wash cycle. There seems to be a heavy film on them. It can be scrubbed off with liquid soap and a brush. This started suddenly after I washed a baking pan in the dishwasher. The pan was very used and scratched before I loaded it in the dishwasher. After the wash, it was very rusty and there was rust on other dishes in the dishwasher. Could this have created some problem with the dishwasher, which is now affecting it's ability to wash?

BOSCH Dishwasher Problem I have a dishwasher (SHV46C13UC/33) that when I start any of the three cycles it continues to run until I open it and do the 'cancel' function. The 'rinse/drain' seems to be running fine, but there is a film left after that mode. I've checked the water inlet, which is open and fine. And, it does drain properly. Is there a SENSOR I need to clean periodically? Or, is the man control module the problem? What's going on?

Our Bosch dishwasher (model unknown) collects small rock-like deposits in the ends of the top spray arm. From what I've read, these could be calcium or other mineral deposits. Is there a safe agent that can be run through a cycle that will break these up? I've tried 3 different dishwasher cleaners; none seem to help.

Dishwasher is not cleaning well, dirty film all over everything, like its not rinsing. In rinse cycle only, some water comes out of lower left port inside but nothing else. Hear a low buzz underneath unit like a motor or pump is energized but no water getting to the top.During normal wash cycle, buzz from underneath seems to cycle on and off, say every minute or so like its cycling on an overload. Do I have a bad pump and if so how do I get to it?
