Hi
Dishwashers usually run on 115-volt or 120-volt power. The water they use comes directly from the water heater, and wastewater is drained into the sink's drainpipe. The dishwasher is not connected to the cold-water supply. For best dishwashing results, set the temperature control of the water heater to no less than 140 degrees Farenheit. Water cooler than this usually doesn't get the dishes clean, unless your dishwasher is a newer model that preheats incoming water. The water shutoff for the dishwasher is typically located below the adjoining sink.

Glassware cloudy or filmy


Soak the glasses in vinegar and rub the cloudy film off.

I find there is better luck with glasses, and we wash a lot of them, if you use rinse aid. Higher temperatures might also help, but opinions vary.

Glasses look awful after being washed, maybe I need maintanance


If you have hard water glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1/4 of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. After that it is recommended to use a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

Why do my glasses go cloudy


All glasses eventually go cloudy in dishwashers, the problem is far quicker and more noticeable with lead crystal which specifically should never be washed in this way.

The cloudiness cannot be reversed: it's caused by millions of tiny cracks in the glass surface as a result of both the chemical and physical processes inside a dishwasher. Some products claim to include a "glass protect" function, but it just slows down the damage instead of stopping it. Commercial glass-washers used in bars and restaurants also cause this damage, but as the wash cycles are far quicker and the cleaning agent is specifically for glass the damage occurs more slowly. In any case, glasses don't usually last long enough in commercial use to show this damage as they usually scratch, chip, or break before it shows.

All you can do to totally avoid the damage is to wash glasses manually and to never put lead crystal in the dishwasher. If that's not an option, then you can slow the damage by washing glasses at the lowest possible temperature: you'll find that some cleaning products are better than others at low temperature and it's not always the expensive brands.

Sorry there's no fix for your cloudy glasses, but I hope that I've helped to to avoid further damage. Please take a moment to rate my reply.

My bosch dishwasher has suddenly started leaving everything cloudy, particularly the glasses. The salt is topped up, the rinse aid full, filters cleaned out.


You can experiment with different tablets/powders and check that the salt and rinse aid dispensers are correctly adjusted, but all dishwashers eventually cause glass to go cloudy and although it's a gradual process there's a point at which it suddenly seems to become noticeable. Any lead crystal glass will cloud very quickly indeed so must be handwashed if you want to avoid this. The cloudiness in glass is irreversible as it's caused by millions of microscopic cracks in the glass surface. Some crockery items are glazed with a process which can also turn cloudy over time in a dishwasher, white plates won't really show it but coloured ones do (especially blue and red). There are some tablets/powders which claim to have a glass protection additive, but this just slows down the process. The best way to slow the process is to wash at the lowest temperature you can.

Glasses dirty looking and cloudy after wash cycle.


If there is not enough water, the dishes will not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

Also, There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

**Water temperature Note***

To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

Concerning the Film, or cloudy look after the wash cycle.

This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there, Try Dishwasher Magic.

Cycle timer displays very different times for cycle, cleaning is not particularly good. Problems related? glasses appear filmy, even when rinse agent is used.


your dishwasher uses an optical sensor to constantly monitor the water turbidity or cleanliness if it detects the water is cloudy it will extend the wash time and vice versa there are several reasons for cloudy glasses check to see if they taste salty,or if the cloudiness washes off,this usually happens when the baskets are loaded badly and the detergents/temps are not set correctly.

Cloudy Glasses


The problem is hard water and jet dry will not solve that. There is a new product out called The Dishwasher Filtration System. It filters the water going into your dishwasher leaving your dishes spot free with every load. It is very affordable and fits right under the sink. You will be amazed how sparkling your dishes look just after one load. You will love this product. Get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.
