Having problems with your Frigidaire Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher is now leaving my dishes cloudy. What causes this?


Answers :

Make sure that the rinse-aid(jet dry) container is full. If it is full have you noticed if it's level has not dropped. It is possible that the rinse-aid dispenser is plugged. This will cause the dishes to be cloudy. You can also try running the dishwaher empty and add a cup of vinegar to the bottom before your start. There is also this stuff called "dishwasher magic" that you can try running in the dishwasher to clean it. Try using a soap with the rinse-aid in it or install a basket with a rinse-aid tablet and see if that helps clear up those cloudy dishes.
The problem is hard water. that is what makes dishes cloudy. its calcium and magnesium dried on the dishes. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a great, affordable product for this exact problem. it will filter the water going into your dishwasher leaving them spotless every time. check it out. guaranteed to work or your money back.

Clear glass dishes are cloudy. What is causing it? We have checked the arms--they seem to be working fine. Some days it does better than others--today they were extremely cloudy. I washed the glasses by hand and dried and it cleared most of the cloudiness off. I have tried two different dishwasher detergents.


You can determine the cause of cloudy glassware by soaking a glass in vinegar for 5 minutes. If the cloudiness is removed it is due to hard water deposits; make sure the salt reservoir is topped up. Do not worry about over-filling it.\015\012If ... Dishwashers
