GE Profile Dishwasher (5 years old); Leaving residue on dishes

Suddenly, the dishwasher started leaving white residue on dishes.  Not getting completely clean.  I refilled with jet-dry, no help.  Checked the drain, not clogged.  It's simply not cleaning the dishes anymore.  Ran vinegar through, didn't help.  HELP!
Thank you, Jeff

    Same problem as others and we started pre rinsing dishes and it still does not help. I suspect that the pump may not be completely draining all of the wash cycle water out leaving dirty water in the mix for the rinse cycle. My washer now stopped draining completely and I am trying to fix that. The problems may be related.

    My GE Profile started leaving a white film on the dishes. I tried vinegar, more heat, checked the water supply and made sure it was free, then the drainsto make wure they were clear and still it does not clean throughly. I have had these dishwashers for years and have never run into this problem before. Anyone have any ideas???

    This is driving me crazy! I have tried vinegar, baking soda, cleaning my dishwasher, making sure that the water was hot enough, and I am pulling my hair out because the results are still WHITE RESIDUE. It is the type you can only scrape off and it is mostly on my plastic! I am at a loss.

There is a new product out that actually filters the water going into your dishwasher. My dishes came out amazing after the first load. No more cloudy glasses. I was very impressed. Who knows whats in the water cleaning your dishes so i thought this filter was great. It is very affordable and you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. Hope this helps some people.

In my case the counter mounted breather for the drain tube was being restricted ... finally to the point it would not drain the tub at all. I disassembled the above counter drain assembly and cleaned it out as it wass completely blocked and things work very well again. I would suggest this foirst as it is an easy task and is done 'above the counter'.
I then ran 2 cups of CLR with wash cycle ... no dishes to clean out the rest of the washer as on dissaembly of the internals to diagnose they were and very scummed up with a hard white crusty substance that was completely blocking some of the drain sump performations.

WHITE FILM ON DISHES


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.
