I just installed a new Whirlpool dishwasher (model DU1301XTV) and have run three loads. Each time, the glasses, silverware, and plastic, come out with white, chalky residue. There are also water spots. I have tried it with both Cascade detergent, and with a Quantum Finish tablet. I have also filled the reservoir with Jet Dry. Do I have a defective dishwasher? Do I have a clogged line?

The top spray arm of my Frigidare model FBD4315LFC0 Aqua Surge dishwasher fell off. Their appears to be a missing part. I've been searching online for a schematic and can't find one thorough enough to use. The parts I have are: 1. The top sprayer arm (the one in the top of the tub) 2. The two piece plastic keeper ring that appears to fit into the top of the spray arm. 3. A small white grommet looking item that fit inside the keeper nut. 4. The keeper nut that screws directly onto the wate

We have a whirlpool GU2700XTSQ1 dishwasher, for about 2 years. At first it cleaned real well, but now it leaves white chalky stuff all over our glasses, silverware, bowls, etc. We have always used Cascade in it. It doesn't have any water obstructions, and the water is good and hot. Any suggestions. All our bowls, glasses, etc are getting ruined.

Black residue My Amana dishwasher leaves a black residue on all dishes. The residue does not adhere to the dishes as much as detergent or food would, and is fairly easy to rinse off in the sink. It originally looks like coffee grounds at the bottom of a cup, but upon closer inspection it appears to be small particles of black rubber or plastic. When I put clean glasses in and just run them through the rinse cycle, the problem is the same. I have repeated this several times with clean glasses and

My GSD5940Do1ss leaks from what appears to be a tube that is in the middle left of the underside. There are no leaks from the hoses or pumps. It only leaks when it is adding water during the wash or rinse cycle. The part it is leaking from looks like a plastic tube that is part of the tub enclosure. There are four of them and I think they are really the mounting guides for the tub enclosure, which means the water is probably flowing down the tub to this spot. I'm assuming that means my seal arou
