Jenn-Air JDB1255AWR Dishwasher glasses come out with a white film

On every cycle with my new Jenn-Air Oiled Bronze Dishwasher, my glassware always comes out with a white-ish film that needs to be rinsed off by hand. I never had this problem with my old Maytag, so I know it is not a hard water problem. I have tried all the recommendations in the troubleshootting section of the manual, with no improvement. It happens on any cycle, heavy, quick wash, normal, with or without heated dry, and whether I use smaller amt of detergent or not. At my wits end..... any sggestions much appreciated.

    I have a water softener and use Jet Dry. The only difference is my wine glasses come out perfect...it is my drinking glasses that come out with the white film.

Sounds like no rinse-aid.

Reduce detergent quantity. Check the rinse aid dispenser and fill if required..

Finally check your inlet water free flow to the machine. If the strainer is blocked clean the part.

This may or may not help, but is worth a try.
Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle.This should NOT be done. You should NEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.

If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1 cup of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

Washer tub is discolering and it has discolered the flat ware, left a film on the glass ware.


There could be several reasons for the film deposit inside dishwasher and on glassware.

What colour is the film - dark or white?

Are you using rinse aid? If you are in hardwater area then check the salt is adequate in the water softener chamber.

I have a GE, PDW8600 Series, problem is - no matter how I arrange dishes the top rack always has deposits left on dishes that are on the top rack. The water is plenty hot.


If your dishes or glassware appear filmy or spotted following a complete wash cycle, adjusting the amount or type of detergent you're using and adjusting your hot water heater's water temperature may solve the problem. But before you do either of these, put a rinse additive (such as Jet-Dry) in the rinse dispenser to improve the sheeting action of the water.
GA_googleFillSlot("HT_Appliances_Dishwashers_Articles_Box_Top_Left_ATF_300x250");

First you'll have to determine whether the film is removable or permanently etched. To do this, soak a glass in undiluted white vinegar for about 15 minutes. Or, you can wash the glass with warm water and concentrated dishwasher detergent or use a high-phosphate detergent (such as Glass Magic) according to label directions.
If film comes off, it is probably caused by hard water minerals, improper amounts of detergent, or unsuitable water temperature. For more, see "Dishwasher Doesn't Wash Well."

Permanent etching is often caused by a combination of soft water and excessive heat or detergent. If glassware is permanently etched, there isn't anything you can do to make it clear again. But you can avoid future etching by taking these steps:
1) Be sure hot water entering the dishwasher is no hotter than 140 degrees F. Don't use extra-hot settings, such as "Power Scrub," and use the "Energy Saver" dry cycle.
2) Adjust detergent amount.
3) Don't pre-rinse your dishes before loading them in the dishwasher. Food particles on the dishes actually help the detergent and drying agents clean better.
