In my GE dishwasher, the jet-dry in the dispenser turned brown. I emptied it all out and refilled it with clean jet-dry, but a few weeks later it was brown again. I guess somehow dirty water is getting...

Had the same problem, opened up the dishwasher, pulled out the jet dry container and found some kind of nasty growth in it. I honestly have no idea what it is, so of course I took a picture, and then threw the whole thing away._1813.jpg

We have put jet dry and changed soaps but it always leaves a white film on the dishes! No other appliances have problems with this in the house.

Thanks for your question. You may have a couple of problems, first if you are using jet dry it is a surfactant. Which means that it places a small amount of a chemical on you dishes to keep them from spotting. If your dishwasher is releasing to much this will cause a white coating on dishes. In the loading area for you jet dry or liquid spot rinse there should be a knob that is marked from 1-5 or so. First turn this dial all the way down to 1. This will reduce the amount of jet dry released. Then monitor the amount of jet dry that you are going through. You should be able to get about 60 loads from a small bottle of jet dry. The other problem may be that you have washed a item that was not dishwasher safe, like a plastic bowl or such. Some of these items will leech the pigment into your dishwasher and then onto you dishes.
I might suggest that you purchase some dishwasher cleaner from you local Store. Walmart and most box stores carry this in the same section that you purchase your detergent. You will need to empty the dishwasher, following the instructions on the cleaner insert into your dishwasher. Then run it through a complete cycle. After attempting these items please let me know if you still have an issue, but I am almost certain that you will have corrected the problem. Thanks D.R. Wilkins

Help! My dishwasher doesn't rinse soap off my dishes anymore

try a few applications of jet dry DISHWASHER cleaner to remove excessive build up of calcium/hard water deposits...sounds like the water temperature is too low upon the initial fill cycle to assist in dissolving the soap.the water temp. must 125 degrees to insure soap activation/ and dissolve it.check for obstructed spray arm as well

Soap is in the dispenser after dishwasher has been run

You need to clean your particle screen under the heating element. It is found at the bottom center of the washer under the heating coil. It is usually a plastic mesh screen and sometimes are removable. This needs to be cleaned really good about every 2 months. This will stop the problem with the suds. Good Luck This Should Help!
By the way I see that you soap won't dissolve this is not because of water temperature it is that the jets in the washer arm are clogged. You need to clean these one by one with a small cleaning device and brush. When these clog the jets of water don't come out with any force they just trickle. Clean the jets(on the arm that spins at the top and bottom of the washer and your screen and it will be like having a brand new washer.

Tablets not dissolving

either there is not enough water (check water valve) or the pump filters are clogged (check and clean as necessary)

Food Deposits left on dishes

I had an old machine with a similiar problem & I found that food had somehow entered into the arm that spins & sprays out water. The food blocked somewhat the holes which of course means less cleaning.

Check your water spray bars. I'll bet they are plugged with calcium or something.

Cleaning out dishwasher

Hi I checked the manual on line. Here's what it said.

Dishwasher has an odor

Run dishes being held in the dishwasher through a Rinse Only cycle.
• Many dishwashers have a “new” smell when first installed. This will dissipate with use.
• Dishwasher may not be draining properly. (See “Dishwasher Will Not Drain” section.)
• For a strong odor, place baking soda in both sides of the detergent cup. Select Light
Wash cycle and allow the water to circulate for about 10 minutes. Interrupt the cycle
by unlatching the door and let it stand overnight. Restart the dishwasher by latching
the door and allow it to complete the cycle. Another alternative is to use a dishwasher
cleaning product such as Jet-Dry Dishwasher Cleaner*.

Good Luck
