Question about Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher

My dishwasher and dishes are turning brown!

Hi, my dishes, crystal glasses and all are turning brown from my dishwasher. The dishwasher itself turns brown, I have to use dishwasher cleaner on it at least once a month. What is causing this! My roommate and I have an ongoing argument, she says it's the liquid cascade, I say it's the water. She says she's had this dishwasher for years and it's never done this until I moved in and started using liquid. Help!

    I am experiencing the same problem. We have a 3-year old dishwasher, and have recently started using liquid Cascade. We had been using the palmolive packs up to now. We have never experienced our dishwasher "browning" until recently. I honestly can attribute this to the new liquid soap we have been using. It's worth the shot to change your detergent.

Hi,
You can use citric acid, Lemon Shine (Target) or even Glass Magic to the detergent to correct this problem. Just two tablespoons to detergent in the door is all you will need. Run a normal cycle with Hi-Temp option to get the best results.
If you do this on every load you should not have any more problems, Try this.... Its cheaper, is recommend by the manufacture of Finish..... Don't follow the direction on the box.....

Cloudy glasses My dishes are not being cleaned. There is a white residue on my glasses and in the dishwasher itself.


You may have hard water. Are you using a rinse aid, you always need to use one. Buy some Tang drink crystals and empty a package into the soap dispenser and run the dishwasher through empty. If you can't buy Tang use about 4-6 cups of white vinegar thrown in the bottom of the machine and run the cycle. Sometimes the white residue on the glasses is there permanently and can't be removed it is called "etching" right in the glass.

After a wash cycle my unit leaves a film on my glass'


first thing you need to do is purchase a bottle of dishwaser cleaner from your groc store in the diswasher detergent section red the instructions on the label add it to the cutlery tray in an empty dishwasher upside down remove the paper seal off the top of the lid do not remove the wax seal place the bottle upside down in your dishwasher turn on hot water tap and run till it is hot next turn on your washer set it to wasn and let it run a full cycle. when washer finishes open it up when it cools and fill rinse dispenser in door with a good quality rinse agent like jet dry close dispenser and when dishwaser is full of dirty dishes turn it on the jet dry will make your galsses come out crystal clear w no film and the dishwaher cleaner will help all your dishes come cleaner.Use the dishwasher cleaner aroun 4-6 wekks it cleans all the inside of the dishwasher and removes a lot of **** aND RESIDUE THAT ACCUMULATES IN DISHWASHERS OVER TIME

Just bought home with Kenmore dishwasher. Know


Hi,

Do you have the operating instructions for your dishwasher. If not, open the door and there should be a manufacturer's badge on the inside of the door somewhere. Find out what model machine you have. I can help you find a manual online.

A couple of general tips for your info.

  • Wipe or rinse excess food particles from dishes before you stack them in machine.
  • Stack neatly and spaced apart to give better wash results.
  • Make sure dishes and pot handles are clear of the sprinklers. Turn sprinklers by hand and make sure they dont hit against anything.
  • I prefer using dishwashing tablets as they are a measured amount. Best not to use too much soap or powder.
  • If you are using powder, use rinse aid along with it.
  • Dont put your crystals or good wine glasses in the dishwasher.
Hope this helps somewhat.
good luck.

The dishes are coming out all cloudy and seem to have a film on them. It is a powdery substance that will not wash off even by hand. It is ruining my dishes. It doesn't matter what soap I use.


Be sure to use a good quality detergent or tablet with rinse aid built in... but before that I would go buy a dishwasher cleaning solution. These are usually in a bottle and you just sit the bottle in the dishwasher by itself (with no other dishes) and run a normal washing cycle. The cleaner will clean the inside of the dishwasher, including the drain area and help produce cleaner dishes thereafter. This should be done every 3-4 months as standard.

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.

Dishes and glasses being etched; looking dirty; embarrassing


First of all, if you're talking about actual glass as opposed to crystal, glass can etch easily. Why? Because like crystal, there are variations in its quality. Cheap glass will etch faster with the use of an electric dishwasher compared to higher quality glass.

Did you know that the main constituent in most automatic electric dishwasher detergents is sodium hydroxide (lye) and chlorine bleach (another caustic acid)

A Bosch dishwasher has very long wash cycles, further exposing your dishes to the possibility of etching damage. You should stop using the sani-rinse cycle if there is such an option and switch to a gel format detergent as opposed to a powder. Use a rinse agent such as Jet-Dry. This should solve your etching problem.

Kenmore dishwasher 15899100


Dennis, Im assuming your model number starts with 665. This model had a service flash on it regarding the upper spray arm. The upper spray arm has been redesigned for better performance. Part number 8269022. This could be covered by Sears if you mention the service flash, 22-714. Other issues that can lead to this problem are; water hardness, if your water is over 7 grains of hardness, this could to this film on the glasses. Try pouring 1/4 cup of Glass Majic into the bottom of the dishwasher. Also run one cup of white vinegar to clean the dishwasher. Make sure the water temp. entering the dishwasher is 120 min. to 150 degrees. Catriver..post back.
