Question about Dishwashers
I have a one yar old Whirlpool dishwasher, I have tried adding drying agents and changing detergent brands and types but I my glasses and silverware are still cloudy
SOURCE: streaks on glassware/silverware
usually indicative of clogged spray heads, or spray arms not spinning, too much detergent for your water type, wrong detergent, and low water temp.
Link to manual:
Check the manual for amounts of detergent to use based on your water hardness.

sounds like you may be using to much detergent.. put your dishwasher on a quick rinse cycle and see if it suds up.. if it does put a table spoon of vegtable oil in the dishwasher and continue running it. after that cut down the detergent and use it like normal.

white film is actually from the calcium and magnesium found in hard water. your dishwasher is fine. its the water leaving the residue and spots. go to www.dishwasherfilter.com . they have a new product out exactly for this reason. very affordable and works amazing. you will love it.

Yes. pour two cups of white vinegar into the empty machine. Run your hottest and longest cycle. Always turn on the hot water in the sink and let it run as hot as it will get before you start your machine.
This will clean your machine. Repeat this cleaning as often as necessary. J.
