BOSCH dishwasher SHX43 leaves a very thick film on everything. Have tried all kinds of different soaps and spot removers. I tried running unit with no soap and no dishes and noticed a lot of soapy water during washing cycle and still leaving film on stainless steel tub. Have cleaned all filters. Does this unit have trouble codes and how do I access them? Thanks Joeot

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

Our dishwasher is leaving a lot of film and residue on the dishes from the hard water where we've actually had to scrub it off with brillo pads. My question is I think the rinse mechanism is clogged up and I would like to take it apart so I can clean it. Is that possible?

I've had an ASKO 1996 dishwasher for about 9 years and in the last few days it has stopped cleaning effectively. The cycle seems to run normally but when finished, the dishes and glasses have a new film on them and generally feel and appear unclean. Is this just a filter problem? If so, how do I clean/replace it and why has it worked ok for so long? Thanks!

Dishwasher model EIDW6405HTOA. MODEL # THO4259825. Installed past December and it doesn't wash. Things come out with spots, film etc. We payed a lot of money for this piece of junk.

My Maytag Quiet Series 300 is not cleaning my dishes very well at all. My glasses always have grit left in them (even with Jet Dry), my coffee mugs have film left in the bottom of them and now even my plates and bowls aren't getting clean. I don't even put my pots or pans in there, so I'm not sure where the grit is even coming from. We have city water and I use a powder to clean with. Also, there has always been a film of dirt that never seems to get rinsed away right where the door opens. Also,

My Bosch dishwasher has been failing to clean my dishes for over a month now. My dishes have a chalky film on them, my glassware is cloudy, and my stainless utensils are dingy--handwashing these items does not remove the film. The model number of the dishwasher is SH16805UC. I have tested my water softener system and that is functioning properly. My Rinse Agent dispenser is full (I use Jet Dry). I cleaned the dishwasher twice with Jet Dry brand cleaner. I tried putting a 1/4 cup of Borax in

My dishwasher has started to leave a film on the dishes after washing. I have tried cleaning the dishwasher, cleaning and checking all the drains, running through cleaners, vinegar, etc. Nothing seems to work. It used to work great.

Dishes and glassware are not clean after a cylce is done. I do not overload. You can even see lip marks and film on the drinking glasses. The silverware has white film on it. The cups and glasses have food particles in them. I've even tried using the pots and pan cyle on a regular load and they still don't come out clean. I do rinse before putting in the dishwasher. I use Cascade or Palmolive and I use a rinse aid. Model DU850DWGB1.

After running our dishes through a wash cycle we noticed there was still a lot of food stuck on the plates & glasses etc. We cleaned out the trap but due to the murky water in the well, we also pulled out the racks & removed the bottom plate. The underside was greasy and had a lot of grim stuck to it as well as the bottom of the drawer itself. We washed the filter trap, swing arm and plate in the sink. We loaded it with the dishes that previously did not come clean and ran a full cycle. The

Model SHU33AO2UC /40 The top rack leaves lots of residue and stuff on glasses. We had a repairman out, he cleaned out the pump intake, and we are careful to clean everything before putting it in the dishwasher. I have made sure all holes in the spinners are clean and don't crowd the glasses. We have also tried different detergents. The dishwasher is 4 yrs old and is used daily. We also use jet dry.

I have a 13 year old Siemens SE64630GB. It isn't cleaning items in the upper basket and I believe it's due to lack of water pressure in the upper spray arm leading to little or no rotation of the arm. Have cleaned out the drainage pump and removed and cleaned both the water feed pipe to the upper arm (a lot of gunk in there) and the spray arm itself (which also had blocked nozzles) - no apparent blockages now. Could there be a blockage in the circulation pump and if so how do I access this pump

We have an E39927 dishwasher that dumped a lot of water on the floor--seems to me from the last time this happened there is a filter or clean-out section that needs cleaning.

Is that the correct place to clean and if so, how do I remove the top to access the screen? thanks, Gail
