Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.

My dishwasher is leaving a film on all the dishes some of the times. Other times the appliance works fine but more and more often it is leaving a white film on all the dishes as though the rinse cycle is not working well. I have tried filling the jet dry compartment and have been using the same jet dry and detergent as always. The dishwasher is about ten years old and has been working well up to a few weeks ago.

We purchased an Electrolux Dishwasher Model #EWDW6505GBO, installed on 8/3/10, and we are very dissatisfied with it, as it just does not wash the dishes clean. We have had G.E. Dishwashers, two, since 1961, and then a Bosch, and they have all worked well. It appears that the water is not getting to the top and/or properly rinsing them. We rinse everything prior to putting the dishes in, but coffee cups come out with the ring around the top. The soap doesn't fully disolve. We have tried doub

My two year old Bosch dishwasher is not cleaning well and is leaving gritty food on most glasses, cutlery, etc. Worse on the top but also not good on the bottom. I have tried cleaning the removable filter on the bottom and rinsing the two 'wands' - one on top and on the bottom so that the little holes are not blocked. I've tried using the power scrub mode. I've run the dishwasher twice with detergent and no dishes. This has problem has persisted over at least a month. Can you please help me?

Samsung DMR57 We bought a Samsung in June and have been trying to get it to work properly ever since. It is very quite which is great, but like the other person wrote the thing keeps coming on even when the child lock is on. We have had a repair man out twice but it they haven't fixed it yet. The dishwasher is right under the counter we use to prepare food so we often rub up against the controls. The power comes and and it starts the machine on whatever cycle it used last, or rinses the dishes.

Glasses int he top rack of my kitchenaid dishwasher don;t get clean. they finish the run spotted and covered in what looks like baked on dirty dishwater. dishes in the lower rack look ok, but the silverware is always dirty, too. i figure it's one of two things - either the top sprayer isn't working, or the machines doesn't drain the dirty water well enough. or maybe it's something else - cycle regulator? the machine is about 4 years old. thanks

My Maytag dishwasher is 9 years old-- Model number MDB7100AWW, serial number 27754072ZQ It has worked fine until about a month ago, when I began noticing a kind of "scum" on the silverware and some of the dishes after completing a wash cycle. The top rack will squeak and have some resistance when pulled out, whereas before it always came out smoothly. I have always used powdered Cascade. I've tried using less, thinking I might be putting too much in. Then I got a rinse agent. These thin
