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.

My dishes are coming out lacking shine and with a cloudy coating on the silverware and glasses. I use CascadeComplete and an additive liquid in the "shine" cup. My Maytag dishwasher is 15 years old. We also have very hard water, so I am being sure to fill the cups full of the powder prior to washing. Any tips? [email protected]


I'm not an expert, but either it's the hard water, or it's not getting the "shine" liquid. I'd look for a soap that specifically says that's for use with hard water. A water softener would be the best solution.Just keep an eye on the "shi ... Maytag Dishwashers

Cranky dishwasher I have to admit my wife's solution is the only one that works. Our ten-year-old Superba built-in usually starts a normal cycle part-way through, at the wash part, without filling or opening the dispenser door. Therefore the dishes come out with the soil now baked on. Closing the door, selecting normal and start results in a pump-out sound, or at least just the pump running to wash the dishes. The dishwasher ignores any cancel button push,and the light does not come on over t
