Hello cljjtm,
\015\012You will need to clean the wash arm and unclog the spray holes.. use white vinegar to break down the soap deposit and a sharp metal tool such as an awl to free these holes up from any build up.. white vinegar may be applied while unclogging the openings..
\015\012Then, once the spray arm holes are freed of deposits..Start with an empty dishwasher.. and then start a wash on the hottest available setting and then after a few minutes of it cycling.. pause it and add a cup or two of white vinegar to the wash ( the white vinegar should break down any soap residue and allow it to be rinsed away)..once complete.. use about 1/3 less detergent than you have been. See if that gets your DW back in working order.. Hope that helps..

Our maytag is about ten years old. No big problems that a little vinegar wouldn't solve once in awhile. Lately, we ran out of water softener salt and a white film was on dishes and not getting clean. I filled the water softener again, and did the vinegar wash, which helped a little. Now dishes not getting clean. I got desperate and did an empty load with CLR in it. Still, not effective. I feel as if something is clogged with lime or calcium since a pan placed in there on bottom shelf still had

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 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 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

Hi, We have a new whirlpool dishwasher type no. 575-0. GU2275X TVQO. We have not been able to get clean dishes since purchase. Water is hot, everything seems to be operating smoothly.
