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.
