\015\012This has been a common issue in all dishwasher, there are solutions. I need to explain, if you dishes are cloudy/milky looking, you problem could be lack of phosphate which was removed in July 2010. Now if you unit has enough water and heat as needed, you can add a product called Glass Magic or Lemon shine to your detergent in the door of the unit when you wash. This will balance out the chemical needed to breakdown the detergent, I am saying no more then 2 tablespoon of additive with soap in door. Within 2-3 washes you will notice the difference and by rather pleased... Any question please let me know. \015\012

Bosch dishwasher Model SHU43C02UC/17 consistently leaves film on glassware, leaves residue in the bottom of glasses in the back position of the top rack, and sometimes leaves gritty residue on dishes throughout the dishwasher. The stainless steel interior is also stained. I regularly clean the filter, use Jet Dry (the product that was included with the machine when I purchased it), and rinse the dishes before filling. The dishwasher has never cleaned dishes like the 17-year-old Kitchen

My dishwasher is a Profile Quiet Power II and is 8 years old. There is one person in my household, so it has not had a lot or wear. The issue is that the flatware and glasses do not come out clean. The flatware is often smudged and the glasses are cloudy. I have changed detergent several times and adjusted the settings and hot water. There is a self-cleaning filter. I am contemplating buying a new dishwasher but wonder if I would benefit from a service call.

I have the same issue to the point where pans (that have been in a dishwasher for years) now are permanently "white filmed" on handles, all my cooking utensils are the same way, and my glasses are etched. I really dislike this dishwasher. I have not changed powder and am not adding the rinse aid (although I have tried to use it to help). The washer has never done a good job of cleaning dishes. I want to know if there is a recall.

I've had my Nautilus for 6 years and it cleans very well - but now, it won't drain fully and pools at the bottom of the unit. I have made sure that my garbage disposal was cleared first, too. and that water was draining properly in the sinks. I will need special tools to unscrew the drain filter in the dishwasher, right, or can I just use a pair of pliers to turn the little knobs? I am always careful to rinse all food off the dishes before putting them in the washer, but I guess I wasn't careful


If your model has the screen across the back with the filter, then yes use your fingers or a plier to unscrew the pop up valve assembly at the very back center of the dishwasher. Most likely, the cone shapped part has deteriorated and is not sealing ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher
