    Same problem and more.....stains on stainless silverware. Tried all of the soaps available. Pot lids at have water held on them before drying - stained as they dry. Could it be possible the drying cycle is too hot?

Dishwater residue is a fairly common occurrence, and several things can cause it. Even the newest dishwashers may leave residue, and it might have nothing to do with the actual dishwasher function itself. However, there are things you can do to prevent, limit or completely remove dishwasher residue during every washing cycle.

Other People Are Reading


  1. Detergent Residue
    • Modern phosphate-free detergents are the main culprits when it comes to detergent residue. After every wash, many leave a slight whitish residue behind. After several washings, the residue becomes caked on and leaves a noticeable white tint to your dishes. Some dishwasher detergent brands are better than others, and either minimize residue or do not leave any. Once residue is present, however, the only way to remove it is by hand scrubbing or scraping.
    Hard-Water Residue
    • Hard-water residue comes from non-softened water from your hot water tank. Non-softened water leaves a white tint on dishes, but no amount of scrubbing will remove it. Only by wiping a small patch of the dish with vinegar or lemon juice will you be able to ascertain whether the white residue left is hard water or detergent. The slight acidic action of the vinegar or lemon juice removes hard-water stains, but they have no effect on detergent residue.
    Greasy Residue
    • If the dishes feel greasy when they come out of the dishwasher freshly washed, you are dealing with a greasy residue. There are two main reasons for this: either the detergent is not an effective grease remover, or the hot water inside of the dishwasher, either from the hot water tank or the dishwasher's heating elements, is not hot enough. Boosting the hot water temperature on the water tank may solve the problem, and a second wash cycle may be needed for the dishes. A preventive measure of running the dishwasher empty with a full load of detergent also removes the residue inside of the dishwasher.
    Streaking and Spotting Residue
    • If you have spotting or streaking on your dishes, that may be a sign you need a rinse agent. Many modern dishwashers recommend a rinse agent to prevent spotting or streaking, and without one, your dishes will never be crystal clear or streak-free. The next time you do a dishwasher load, add a rinse agent. If the dishes come out spot- and streak-free, the problem is solved.

Tip

Dishwasher Cleaning


If you have hard water, you may experience stains on dishes and scale forming on your dishwasher heating element.

To clean it up and improve performance, there is a product called "Dishwasher Magic" that descales the machine.

Another trick, particularly if you can't find Dishwasher Magic, is to use white vinegar.

Run the machine empty with about two cups of white vinegar added to the bottom. Then run it again empty to remove the odor of the vinegar.

If you have dishes that have a built up film (you notice this particularly on clear glass) you can soak it in vinegar for ten minutes or so and then rinse it off with tap water. For stubborn stains you may want to rub with a paper towel.

The best way to avoid these problems is to use rinse agent in your dishwasher, and to use the Dishwasher Magic once every month.

UPDATE: A low cost alternative to this product is to simply use unsweetened kids soft drink mix....aka KoolAid. It's got lots of citric acid, just like the Dishwasher magic. To get similar results, you need to use two large packages or four to six of the small one quart size pouches. IMPORTANT: Don't put any sugar in it, just add the powder to the bottom of the dishwasher and run a cycle.

Foggy headlight assembley


If the fog is on the outside, it is damage from dirt and rocks from the road. You can try sanding and buffing them (they sell kits for this purpose), but it's not that easy.
If the fog is on the inside, it may be that moisture has gotten into the assembly through a crack or loose seam. Remove the protective backing from the assembly and let the water evaporate. Find the crack or loose seam and seal it with clear caulk of some kind.
The only other choice is to replace the assembly.
Best wishes!

Washing machine candy grand'o 1400 has stuck, vanish stain light


Ok, turn the washing machine off and unplud. Open the flap at the bottom left of the machine. Put a bucket underneath it. Unscrew the cap. Water will pour out - lots of it and very quickly - so make sure you have a bucket underneath it and lots of towels round that.
Once the water has drained out, check there are no blockages in there. You may find that some coins or buttons flush out with the water. That will be your problem.
Once clear, screw the plug back in and turn on machine.
