Question about Maytag DWU9962 Dishwasher
It seems that no matter what settings or chemicals we have on our dishwasher the glasses invariably come out dirtier than they went in. A sandy/gritty residue is left on the inside of inverted glasses and bowls etc on the top rack. We use those Cascade gelcap things but have tried various types, with and without the rinse. I have completely cleaned the washer a number of times removing just about everything inside it. Cleaned the filter screens and jets etc. If there is an additive out there that we should be using I'd like to know about it as so far our experimentation with various products has not paid off. When we used powder detergent in the past we encountered a large build up of calcium like material on the heater element. I have given up using the thing and have gone back to washing and drying by hand and I'm beginning to think it's less hassle. (My wife almost completely washes everything before she puts them in the machine in any case)
Many thanks for any reasonable explanation and solution.
Sounds like you have either a calcium build up or are using to much detergent. more is not always better. if you have a calcium problem you may need to run a cleaner called dishwasher magic through your dishwasher. it comes in a 12oz bottle and can be bought at sears online the part number is wx10x10200. the other thing you can try is running vinegar in a cup facing right side up on the top rack through the dishwasher to see if it helps clean anything out. if not then the dishwasher magic may be the only way to go.
