Answers :

Its not soap actually it is calcium build up. The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

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. The stainless steel interior is also stained. I regularly clean the filter, use Jet Dry (the product that was included with the machine when I purchased it), and rinse the dishes before filling.

Asko dishwasher model DW 20.3 whichi s without a doubt the worst dishwasher I have ever had. The low water usage is the only plus -- and why we bought it since we have septic. Anyhow, we have a persistant "funk" (bad, rotten smell) in the dishwasher that gets on and in all of our dishes and glasses and china... it is nauseating. I have tried everything, including all of the recommendations to (1) use a very small amount of detergent (2) get biodegradable detergent (3) use more rinse agent (4)

The flimsy plastic guide wheels on the rack for my (ca. 2000) GE monogram dishwasher have been breaking. Six so far. GE wants $25 - $30 per wheel to replace and $235 for a whole new rack!!

Are there wheel manufacturers/suppliers that will sell reasonably wheels of similar dimensions to the breaking wheels? Preferably in nylon or stainless steel, not the cr
