Having problems with your Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher ?

I have a white film left on the dishes i've had this dishwasher for about 4 years and this just started


Answers :

Place a cup of vinegar in top rack corner (upright) and run an empty cycle to clean any build up.
Stop\015\012using any rinse-aid (jet-dry etc.), if the detergent you're using\015\012already has it included. Too much rinse-aid can create a white film on\015\012your dishes. A good way to check for rinse-aid build up is to run your\015\012fingers on the inside of the cabinet and check for a white powdery\015\012residue on your fingers. You can also run the dishwasher for a couple\015\012of minutes and check for excess suds in the water when you open it.\015\012Excess suds would indicate a rinse-aid build up.
Run the hot water at the tap before starting the cycle and make sure it's at the recommended temperature (120-140°F).
Good luck!
They are probably treating your water differently now and the water is hard. that is why the spots and film are on your dishes. there is a great product called the dishwasher filtration system that actually filters the water going into your dishwasher. it is amaing the difference it makes after the first load. it is easy to install and very affordable. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com

Dishwasher leaking We bought our dishwasher in Sep/07, it was fine for a year, then started leaking out the bottom of the door on the left. We had the seal on the door replaced (didn't work) and then the door gasket replaced. That worked for less than a year, now it is leaking again in the same place. What could be going on? Have already put $400.00 repairs into this machine and am reluctant to put more money in to have it break again the same way. What do you suggest?

BOSCH Dishwasher Problem I have a dishwasher (SHV46C13UC/33) that when I start any of the three cycles it continues to run until I open it and do the 'cancel' function. The 'rinse/drain' seems to be running fine, but there is a film left after that mode. I've checked the water inlet, which is open and fine. And, it does drain properly. Is there a SENSOR I need to clean periodically? Or, is the man control module the problem? What's going on?
