If your dishes or glassware appear filmy or spotted following a complete wash cycle, adjusting the amount or type of detergent you're using and adjusting your hot water heater's water temperature may solve the problem. But before you do either of these, put a rinse additive (such as Jet-Dry) in the rinse dispenser to improve the sheeting action of the water. First you'll have to determine whether the film is removable or permanently etched. To do this, soak a glass in undiluted white vinegar for about 15 minutes. Or, you can wash the glass with warm water and concentrated dishwasher detergent or use a high-phosphate detergent (such as Glass Magic) according to label directions. If film comes off, it is probably caused by hard water minerals, improper amounts of detergent, or unsuitable water temperature. See "Doesn't wash well," above. Permanent etching is often caused by a combination of soft water and excessive heat or detergent. If glassware is permanently etched, there isn't anything you can do to make it clear again. But you can avoid future etching by taking these steps: 1) Be sure hot water entering the dishwasher is no hotter than 140 degrees F. Don't use extra hot settings, such as "Power Scrub" and use "Energy Saver" dry cycle. 2) Adjust detergent amount. 3) Don't pre-rinse your dishes before loading them in the dishwasher. Food particles on the dishes actually help the detergent and drying agents clean better.

There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. it actually filters the water going into your dishes. the dishes look dirty because your water has a lot of calcium and magnesium in it making them appear cloudy or dirty. the dishwasher filter reduces those minerals and my dishes look perfect now. no more dirty and grimy looking dishes. i also dont waste time washing them by hand before and after the dishwasher. hahaha you can get it at dishwasherfilter.com. it fits right under your sink and is very affordable. you will be glad you bought this product. thanks

    A less expensive solution is a product called Lemi Shine. It's an additive that removes the calcium, lime and magnesium from the wash cycle. It also cleans calcium deposits out of the spray jets making your dishwasher work better. You can get a free sample from one of their websites -http://www.mydisheslookdirty.com

I found this on ehow I believe it will help. How to Troubleshoot Dishwasher Residue By Dale Yalanovsky eHow Contributor

5Found This HelpfulGeorge Doyle/Stockbyte/Getty images
Dishwater residue is a fairly common occurrence, and several things can cause it. Even the newest dishwashers may leave residue, and it might have nothing to do with the actual dishwasher function itself. However, there are things you can do to prevent, limit or completely remove dishwasher residue during every washing cycle.

Other People Are Reading


  1. Detergent Residue
    • Modern phosphate-free detergents are the main culprits when it comes to detergent residue. After every wash, many leave a slight whitish residue behind. After several washings, the residue becomes caked on and leaves a noticeable white tint to your dishes. Some dishwasher detergent brands are better than others, and either minimize residue or do not leave any. Once residue is present, however, the only way to remove it is by hand scrubbing or scraping.
    Hard-Water Residue
    • Hard-water residue comes from non-softened water from your hot water tank. Non-softened water leaves a white tint on dishes, but no amount of scrubbing will remove it. Only by wiping a small patch of the dish with vinegar or lemon juice will you be able to ascertain whether the white residue left is hard water or detergent. The slight acidic action of the vinegar or lemon juice removes hard-water stains, but they have no effect on detergent residue.
    Greasy Residue
    • If the dishes feel greasy when they come out of the dishwasher freshly washed, you are dealing with a greasy residue. There are two main reasons for this: either the detergent is not an effective grease remover, or the hot water inside of the dishwasher, either from the hot water tank or the dishwasher's heating elements, is not hot enough. Boosting the hot water temperature on the water tank may solve the problem, and a second wash cycle may be needed for the dishes. A preventive measure of running the dishwasher empty with a full load of detergent also removes the residue inside of the dishwasher.
    Streaking and Spotting Residue
    • If you have spotting or streaking on your dishes, that may be a sign you need a rinse agent. Many modern dishwashers recommend a rinse agent to prevent spotting or streaking, and without one, your dishes will never be crystal clear or streak-free. The next time you do a dishwasher load, add a rinse agent. If the dishes come out spot- and streak-free, the problem is solved.

How do I clean dishwasher its starting to leave whiet spots on dishes


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know how to clean your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# PLD2560LCC, as it is starting to leave white spots on your dishes. Please follow these simple instructions:

1. Load your clean dishes and glasses in a normal manner. Do not load any metal utensils or silverware.
2. Do not add detergent.
3. Select the NORMAL WASH cycle. Close and latch door. Press START/CANCEL pad.
4. Allow your dishwasher to run until it starts the second water fill (approximately 10 minutes). The SENSING light will be off.
5. Unlatch and open the door and pour 2 cups of white vinegar into the bottom of your dishwasher.
6. Close and latch the door and allow cycle to finish.

Note: If these conditions persist, a home water softener should be considered.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Dishwasher leaves a white film on didhes and film will not come off.I have drained water heater for about 20 mins to remove calcium deposits but problem still exists.


Start a wash cycle with no dishes and no soap.
Once the machine fills with water and starts washing,open the door and pour in one quart of WHITE vinegar and resume the wash cycle.
Change your dishwasher detergent to the ELECTROLUX brand.
It has added chemicals to combat the problem you describe.
The government mandate to remove phosphates from dishwasher and laundry detergent has resulted in unclean appearance of dishes and laundry.

Dishes wont rince clean


Hello Dennis, welcome to Fixya. There are several factors which influence how your Bosch perform's. Saying that brings me to a point I have to ask a few questions. 1) How long have you had the unit...when did you buy it ? 2) do the dishes always appear dry when the cycle completes ? 3) How long does the unit take to complete a "normal" wash cycle ? 4) Do you have adequate hot water going to the unit ? Let me know as much as possible and I should be able to help. I will watch for your response. Macmarkus :)

The dishes in the top end up covered in baked on residue after cycle completed. They are dirtier after washing than before. As if bits from below are splashing up during the cycle and not being rinsed off.

Clothes coming out spotted


Hi Residue builds up inside of washing machines for all sorts of reasons. Many detergents and fabric softeners can leave filmy layers behind. Hard water can cause spotting on both plastic and metal thus ending up with spots on your washing, how to resolve this follow the instructions, 1, use vinegar a bottle and place your machine on the hottest wash cycle and let it run through a full cycle, when finished use a paper towel with vinegar to clean the inside, set machine on a rinse cycle, this may need to be repeated but will solve it, also use gels and liquids instead of powders and descale etc.

Dry white powder on dishes after washing


Hard water maybe?Or your heating element in the bottom may need some cleaning. take pour some vinegar on it and see if the lime bubbles. if so get something like lime away or CLR and pour it on the element let it set for 5 to 10 min then run it through a cycle for rinsing it all out. If the problem goes away for a while then comes back within 90 days I believe you need a water softener.
