Having problems with your KitchenAid Dishwashers ?

I use Cascade Complete detergent and Jet Dry rinsing agent in my Kitchenaide. Every load leaves a white residue in my dishwasher and on every dish as well. The rinsing aid compartment doesn't show "empty" very quickly, could that matter ? Hope you can help. Thanks!

\015\012Have you checked if the water temperature is at the correct level?
\015\012I am not quite sure if you meant the rinse aid compartment shows empty very quickly or "does not" . This could mean it is putting too much rinse aid which can leave a residue.

Dishwasher Repair I have a Frigidaire dishwasher that came with the house. The house and washer are probably about seven years old. It woked fine for the first few months but now, when I turn it on to wash it fills with water but then it will not go into wash cycle (i.e. there is no water sent into the dish compartment). It will go through every cycle by filling and emptying through wash and rinse but no water goes into the dish compartment. Is there a pump that is perhaps not working? How is th

My dishwasher is leaking huge amounts of foam to the floor. This is what happened before I ran the cycle: I had mistakenly poured detergent into the "Rinse Aid" slot in the inner side of the dishwasher door. After one or two cycles, I realized the mistake, and tried to rinse out the remaining detergent from the "Rinse Aid" compartment by running the cycle without screwing on the cap of the Rinse Aid slot. I found out it was a mistake as huge amounts of foam is being released during the rinse cyc
