Prevent white cloudy ''stains'' on glasses in the dishwasher

We have a new Bosch dishwasher, always use rinse aid/salt. What is causing this and how do I prevent it happening to my new glasses? Can't find my manual, but I think I read something about this.

My new beco dishwasher is leaving a white film on everything. Glass is very cloudy. It has rinse aid and salt in it help.


Is the inside of the dishwasher clean? Have you emptied the filter and cleaned the jets in the spray arms?

I have a Bosch SHU66C02UC/14 dishwasher that leaves a white deposit on the dishes especially plastic drinking glasses. Suggestions are that it is not dispensing enough rinse agent. How can I adjust that...


This could simply be a detergent problem, but is most likely due to a low salt level in the water softener. The salt is used by the water-softener to prevent hard-water deposits which result in white stains on crockery and glasses. There are several things which can cause this:

1. There is no salt in the salt container.
2. The lid on the salt container isn't screwed on properly. (Don't overtighten though!)
3. Water softener is set too low

If you've checked and topped up the salt level and the lid is screwed on fully, then your water softener may be set too low. You should consult your user manual / installation instructions to change the setting.

The white deposits can also be caused by the rinse-agent being set too low. On your washer, the adjustment will be on a dial under the flap where you refill the rinse agent. I think it's numbered 1-5, so if it's set on 1, try number 3, if it's on 3, try 4 or 5. You may have to adjust a couple of times until you get it right.

If this doesn't solve the problem, try changing your detergent. Check the packaging and if your using phosphate-free detergent, try one containing phosphates. Phosphate-free is more eco-friendly though!

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.

Try cleaning the machine by adding white vinegar to the wash water (before the water-fill procedure finishes). Put your stained dishes and cutlery in with the wash to remove the hard water deposits. The combination of salt and rinse aid may have helped cause this problem. Hope this helps!

Bosch dishwasher she58c leaves all my glasses cloudy


using to much soap will cause this problem.
If the unit can not get all the soap out on the rinse cycle, it will leave residue on the glasses.
ALSO:
1)Make sure you are using rinse-aid!!!!!
2) turn your sink water on before you turn the d/w on. That way the water is already hot when it goes in.
