Answers :

The problem is hard water. there is a great new product out at www.dishwasherfilter.com that filters the water going into your dishwasher. it goes right under the sink and is very affordable. i was amazed how clean my dishes got after the first load. you will love this product.
After you have removed the filter and cleaned out any debris, clean the inside of the dishwasher with white vinegar by filling a bowl or large cup with white vinegar and placing it on the rack and running a short cycle with no powder inside.\015\012
\015\012Use a name brand powder (Cascade or Electrosol) rather than the ultra-cheap powder. Never use gel or tablets in any dishwasher.\015\012
\015\012If problems continue, you almost certainly have a failed heating element. Replacing the element yourself is not tremendously difficult if you are handy and promise fo disconnect the power before you begin. Otherwise, a service call is the next step.

Got a new Kenmore dish washer in mid January. Worked fine for a couple of weeks then so-called "clean" dishes were covered with a residue from, I assume, was the dishwasher soap. I tried cascade action pacs, then cascade powder and finally, cascade gel. Nothing helped. I ended up having to use SOS pads to get the "crud" off of the dishes and silverware, and use regular dish soap to hand clean each dish and saucer and bowl...as well as each knive, spoon and fork! I have finally stopped u

LG model LDS5811WW/02 has never cleaned the dishes since first installation. Put clean dishes in and they will come out dirty too! Have tried all dishwasher soap types and brands and drying agents. Always scrape and rinse dishes prior to loading. Dishes loaded various ways but problem remains. Repairman says unit is working fine. Also never dries dishes completely. Often leaves soap dispenser completely or partially filled. We are on a farm and have hard water but we have a softener/iron remover

Our Asko dishwasher no longer cleans the top shelf of dishes properly. Fine white and black grit is left on the dishes after every wash, and if there is any food residue on the dishes it does not come off. In addition, food residue that was not on the dishes to start with is being thrown up onto the top shelf and doesn't clean off the dishes. The control unit was replaced 2 months ago at vast expense, and this problem only arose following the repair. The only suggestion from Asko to fix the new

We have run our dish washer several times, however, the dishes are not getting cleaned. We first ran it on "normal wash." The second and third time we ran it on "pots and pans." Not only are the dishes not getting cleaned, but the soap is hardly getting dissolved. We use liquid dish soap too. I noticed this last time, at the end of the wash, the soap was getting built up on the front-right (when facing the machine) and had turned into a solid clump; almost like plaster. I don't have a manual so

I just purchased an LDF6920. It does not dry the dishes. In fact, there is water remaining in the bottom, and all the dishes and drum and door are beaded with water. It suggests putting some sort of water removing chemical, but I have never owned a dishwasher that did not made some effort to dry the dishes. I have to hand dry or have spots on everything. I am very, very disappointed with my new, and expensive, purchase.

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.

Spotty dishes Hi. I recently bought a new home only to find that we have very hard water.( I believe it was 23) Unfortunately, we do not have a whole house filter/softner yet, and it affects everything.

Dirty dishes Pump went on this machine about 6 months ago. Since the install of the new pump the dishes do not come clean. Particles finely ground or tomato seeds, sesame seeds etc. get blasted back on the dishes in the final rinse cycle. Repair guy has no clue... could there be a pinched line upon install that won't allow complete drainage, or the wrong pump? Is ther filter screen? I have done the vinegar reoutine plus a purchased cleaner to no avail. The machine is a bout 13 years old. Thank y
