We have hard water at our home, but the new dishwasher leaves a thick film on the glasses. We use the rinse agent, but it's awful.

You have to buy a cartridge type water softener and attach it to the
inlet water line of your dish washer. In addition to this there must be
a salt compartment in the dish washer.
Refer the user guide /owners manual and locate. Fill it with the special
dish washer salt. ( Do not use kitchen salt used for food).
The dish washer salt may help to certain extent in softening the wash
tub water inside. Check the switch settings for rinse aid and salt
release settings in the machine. Refer manual!

Water fill problem on Hotpoint Dish Washer Deluxe Model DF 31

Pl check the small filter fitted near the water inlet hose. Probably you may have to pull this filter as this is housed in the threaded pipe attached to the body.

Remove the hose from the machine and try flushing. see whether you get sufficinet pressure from over-head tank!

Clean the filter with tooth brush or reverse clean. Do no for get to fit rubber washer.

Bosch Dishwasher - Model SHU43C07UC --- intermitently shuts off during wash cycle -- restarts later, sometimes several hours later and then finishes cyc'e

Cold water is the only type of water that fills your tub. The machine looks like it stops because it is waiting for the water heater to heat the water in your machine to a highert temperature, enough to get your dishes clean.On that model you can't say very often that your dishes don't get clean.

GE Dishwasher fills with water but does not "spray water" on dish

Here are a few things that might help you out, first is you could have a bad heating element in your dish washer, when it fills with water it has to reach a certain temperature before continuing to the next cycle, next thing is you could have a bad thermostat, or your timer is defective.

Hotpoint dish washer aquarius

I had the same problem with my Hotpoint Aquarius the eco and fast light flashing, it would go through the pre wash cycle and stop.
I cleaned the filters etc; and it still didn’t work.
I turned the machine off and unplugged it at the mains,
I drained all the water, turned the machine on the side and took the bottom off, I removed the drain pump off the bottom (this was held on with a single screw after taking the screw out slightly turn it to one side as its like a bayonet fit on a light bulb also remove the wire connection and a rubber drain pipe)
Once the pump was removed I could clearly see the impellor it was very tight and I couldn’t spin it after a closer examination I could see a foreign object jamming it I removed this with a pair of tweezers, replaced the pump and put it all back together and it now works perfectly.
I hope this can be of some help.

Water comes back

i assume you mean that water is coming into the machine when not in use.
a common cause of this is if the drain pipe is connected into a spigot on the sink trap. every time you empty water from the sink, some goes down the drain pipe and fills up the machine. the cure is to take the drain pipe up in a swan neck as high as you can under the sink
