You simply need to use a product called Jetdry for a couple of weeks until all the traces of factory solvents etc. work out of the machine. Sometimes if you have a really high concentration of particulates in your water the problem will continue and that is what the Jetdry is for. It isn't the new dishwashers problem it is the local water. One permanent solution is to hook up a water purifier/softner in order to clean the water up. Jetdry is used in many areas and is perfectly safe. Good Luck this will help.

Dishwasher leaving a white film on dishes after wash/dry cycle


Well, that usually happens if the water in the area has too much alkali metals, such as calcium and magnesium.
Try putting some salt together with the detergent before you start the cycle.
And if it still does, try washing the finished dishes again with clean water, i mean, without detergent...

This is a classic sign of too much detergent. Are you only using one tablet? Too low of a washing temperature could also be your culprit. Dishwasher detergent needs to be washed with at least 120 degree water. Check to make sure your supply is hot (if it's plumbed to intersect with your faucet, just check faucet hot water supply temp). I'm not sure why you're running it on a two hour cycle, dishwashers can generally do the job in about 40 minutes. The grit is probably because there are food particles in your food trap. Make sure the food filter beneath the spray arm (if equipped) is clean and check the lowest areas for food scraps.

Dishes not rinsing well,


I would check the bottom drain area. Sometimes food can stay down there and block the drain or get back around onto the next load.

Dishwasher leaves soap in dispenser.


Hi Dirty Dish gang.
After having 2 appliance repairmen here, I now have the latest scoop on our dishwasher problems, $200 later!
Los Angeles IS currently having hard water issues. Also, all the new cleaning gels etc. are actually a cause of our dishwasher problems.  
So, here is what we need to do:
1. Use Cascade POWDER detergent only.  Make sure is is just "plain" no "scented" or "complete"  or gel, etc. (I have tried a phosphate free powder and gel and this is a cause of our problem as well!) 2. Use Jet Dry in the dispenser (set it to a 2-3 opening) 3. Make sure water is at least 120 degrees 4. Only run dishwasher on "normal" setting.  All others just run it longer, hence causing more water stains. 5. Do not pre-wash dishes! You can knock of chunks with a "non" soapy brush, but don't rinse (the oils actually help to clean the dishes) 6.  Do not wash sponges in dishwasher.
Acid Wash: The repairman just gave my washer an Acid Wash today. It says it is an acid derived from lemon, I got mine from Carters appliance in Torrance, CA for about $19. I am to run a normal cycle with the above mentioned Cascade after this "acid cycle" is finished.
If you are still having problems:
Monthly maintenance: Glass Magic: Buy a box of Glass Magic (near the Cascade)  Use 1 Tbsb in main detergent compartment of dishwasher along with the Cascade, till washer starts working again. White Vinegar: You can run an empty dishwasher with white vinegar once a month.  Fill a bowl with 2 cups vinegar and place on bottom rack.  Then run as a normal cycle...this allows vinegar to disperse slowly.
So far it seems to be working.  Good luck.
