GE Profile PDW9200J dishwasher leaves a film and dirty dishes

Our dishwasher has been leaving a terrible film and our dishes are not clean when a cycle is run. VERY DISAPPOINTED in this product.
I have had a bluish tint on the inside of the washer for many months. I have had a service tech out who had never seen anything like it. The glasses have a film on them and any silverware looks very dingy. The dishes often look dirty and I end up having to hand wash them.
I have used the dishwasher "cleaner" that you place by itself upside down to help it clean the inside. It helped somewhat with the bluish tint but did nothing to improve the quality of cleaning.

Sounds like you have an excessive build up of hard water (mainly calcium) in it. Clean it like this: Close the detergent cup cover. Run hot water at the sink to clear cold out of the pipes. Start the machine on pots and pans/added heat. Wait about 10 minutes and open the door. If the detergent cup cover flops open, it is in the main wash. If it is still closed, let it run a few more minutes, check cup cover again, keep dong this until the cover is open. Once it is open it will be in the main wash (the longest cycle) and at that time put in about 2 cupfulls of Tang orange drink in the bottom of the tub. Tang is very high in citric acid and will clean the calcium and other hard water deposits from the tub, pump, spray arms, ect... Make sure your hot water is HOT (130 is great) and use Cascade Complete powdered detergent from now on. Should take care of it... Repeat every 6 months to keep it clean.

The problem is hard water. this is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system and it actually filters the water going into the dishwasher. i tried everything to get my dishes clean but nothing worked until i tried this system. my glasses all had a white, cloudy look to them and it was terrible. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. it is very affordable and works amazing. the filter fits right under the sink and solves the problem immediately. if you use the discount code DFMTEN you will get 10% off

Check the pump and filter for blockages as the dirty water may be not draining properly. A mix of detergents is ok. Run a prewash with the unit empty and see if the water is still greasy
