Dishwasher Odor Our dishwasher leaves dishes and glassware with a sulfer odor after the wash cycle. We have run vinegar through it, use jet dry, and use 1 tablespoon of dry detergent. All suggestions made by the "customer support". None of these have led to a permanent solution. We're about ready to "kick this to the curb". Any suggestions? I've checked filters and there doesn't appear to be any standing water. We have city water and there isn't an odor when you drink it.

I also run the hot water in the sink prior to starting the dishwasher to ensure the water is hot when it comes into the dishwasher. The detergent

Dishwasher is 16 months old. Recently, it won't get tea stains from spoons or cups and there is a white film on plastics. I have run unit once with vinegar. I tried using less detergent and no change (Cascade Complete). (Neighbors using same detergnet on different machine with no problems so it's not the water.) I always select High water temp and air dry on normanl wash. My hunch is that the motor is going bad and therefore it is not pushing the water with enough force.

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. Ideas?

Model GU2700XTS81 purchased a few months ago. Dishes come out with chalky white film on them. I am currently using Palmolive Eco liquid and Cascade Crystal clear rinse.

I just installed a new Whirlpool dishwasher (model DU1301XTV) and have run three loads. Each time, the glasses, silverware, and plastic, come out with white, chalky residue.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher. A few years ago I was told there was a recall on certain models that there was a defect in the rinse agent part. I was told not to use any Jet dry. My glassware has a film on it. I was wondering if I could put white vinegar in the rinse agent area. Otherwise the washer works fine. My model #363-15171000 Serial # SZ305300R Thanks in advance.

We bought model KUDS02FR in Nov. 2005. The last few months we have had a residue on many of our dishes, esp. plates and bowls, when we unload the dishwasher. We've been double-checking the detergent dispenser, Jet Dry, and the way we load the machine. We have rewashed dishes, but it doesn't seem to have solved the problem. I cannot find a trouble-shooting guide in the Consumer Reference Guide, only information on loading and guides to the various racks. We have hard water and use both dispensers
