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 Kenmore 13743 is 3 years old and was washing perfectly until a couple of months ago. It has become so bad that it won't clean anything on the top rack and barely anything on the bottom rack. In fact, I just pulled a butter knife out of the rack that still had butter on it! Not normal... I do not know how to remove the bottom washer arm to get at the chopper, filter, etc. Please help

I own a Bosch dishwasher. It is about 5 years old. In the last year I have noticed that is isn't cleaning well and that there is a white residue on all the dishes and especially on the inside of the dishwasher. I poured a whole gallon of white vinegar into the dishwasher about a month ago and let it run the whole cycle without dishes. Since then the white residue has deminished, but now the dishes are not clean when I run the dishwasher. I notice the white residue mostly on the silverware w

In the last month I have noticed that my dishes aren't getting clean. My dishwasher is less than a year old and has done a great job so far. I tried adjusting the amount of rinse aid and the amount of soap but nothing works. the dishes come out "clean" without food residue on them, but they are so cloudy that I don't want to use them. I will go back to handwashing and sell the dishwasher is this is the way it is going to be cleaning. (The repair guy said nothing is wrong with it.) It is mod

About a month ago, our dishwasher stopped working properly. It runs fine and the soap is being used, but the dishes are not being cleaned and especially on the top rack. I opened the dishwasher this morning while it was running and I noticed that the coil on the bottom was red (maybe heating water) but only about 1/16th of it. Could this be the problem?

I have a NEFF dishwasher model SD11XT1F about 18 months old. It smells. I've tried all the book solutions but the smell returns after a couple of days. I can get rid of it by mopping out the small amount of residual waterin the sump, so I'm wondering if it's bacteria in the salt solution reservoir. I've run a programme pumping the waste into a washing up bowl. The water from the first two cycles appears greeny-yellow. Is that OK? Can I clean out the salt somehow and start again, or is it a d

Dishwasher is not drying. At end of cycle, dishes are still wet and damp, as well as the inside. Buttons are all pushed. Also, it seems to wash for more than one cycle. Did a light wash and after 1-1/2 hrs., it was still running. Purchased a couple of months ago. Dishes don't seem to be as clean as my old dishwasher.

Soap problems Not only won't the soap dissolve but there are granules on the inside of my glasses. The dishes are also not getting very clean. I have been using cascade 2 in 1 action packs for a few months now with no problem, they've been great. I ran a wash 2 days ago and when it was done, I opened it up and the dishes were still dirty and the action pack was just sitting there slightly open with detergent sitting on the bottom of the machine. I had done a wash 2 days before with no problem.

Dirty dishes Pump went on this machine about 6 months ago. Since the install of the new pump the dishes do not come clean. Particles finely ground or tomato seeds, sesame seeds etc. get blasted back on the dishes in the final rinse cycle. Repair guy has no clue... could there be a pinched line upon install that won't allow complete drainage, or the wrong pump? Is ther filter screen? I have done the vinegar reoutine plus a purchased cleaner to no avail. The machine is a bout 13 years old. Thank y

Kenmore Ultra Wash 665 dishwasher is almost 10 years old but has held up well. Over the past couple of months, however, it does not rinse well but leaves a layer of crud on the surfaces of the dishes in the top rack. I've cleaned out the sprayers and the associated plumbing (built-up pulp residue from labels left on some cans) but the problem persits. It's as if the crud is not getting filtered and removed from the rinse stream.
