Question about Dishwashers
Our dishwasher leaves the dishes dirty, even after washing on the heavy cycle. The glasses in the top rack have food and funk all washed up in them. Anything we can clean on this or something we can do to remedy this situation?
There is a screen on the drain area of the bottom of the dishwasher that needs to be cleaned. It has a plastic mesh screen on it - you can't miss it. Second get an old toothbrush and clean out the little jets on the washing arms that spin around. You will notice these holes are clogged up with calcium deposits etc. Those things done you will have a new dishwasher again. You need to do this every 6 months or so. Also use a rinse conditioner for a while to assure the jets are clean. Good Luck

Load the appliance with dirty dishes, placing soiled pots and pans on the lower rack where they will be subjected to the most vigorous cleaning. Glassware and dishwasher-safe plastics should go on the top rack. It is not necessary to rinse dishes before loading them in the Hotpoint appliance, unless the dishes have been sitting for awhile and the food particles have dried.
Fill the detergent compartment with your preferred brand of dishwashing detergent, and add glass rinse solution to the rinse reservoir on the inside of the door if your model is equipped with one, then close the door to lock in place.
Select the cycle you wish to use and press the button. For pots and pans, use the heavy-duty cycle. Normal wash is fine for dishes and utensils.
Save on your energy bill by running the dishwasher only when it is full and by allowing the dishes to air dry instead of using the heat dry function on the appliance.
