Here are some questions that may help.
1) Is the water hot enough? Since the soap "melts" better at higher temperatures, cooler water can leave a soap film.
2) Are the dishes clean before you run the machine? We like to used the dishwasher to "sanitize" the dishes, so we rinse them really good before washing them, to get off caked food residue.
3) Try changing washer soap, try powder if you used liquid, or visa-versa, and try less quantity and see if any of those help.
God bless your efforts.
This is a "boilerplate" answer for the problem of over-sudsing. The reason you know this is a generic statement is that they have no way of knowing the contents of the presoaks, sanitizers, and soaps that you use. It is their way of saying "Until you are sure that you have ruled out all other possibilities of the problem, it's not OUR problem yet". When I was a dishwasher they told us we needed to basically "prewash" all the dishes before running them through the dishwasher, otherwise you will find that you have to drain and refill more often and will use more soap and such. Only problem was, "prewashing" was so time consuming that we were losing more money doing it that by draining and refilling the machine each shift. We still rinsed them with the sprayer before loading, but the heck with the pre-wash....that's why you bought the $#$^*^ dushwasher, right?
If it looks like the water is circulating then it's possible that soap build up can cause cleaning problems. Try taking a cereal bowl and filling it with an 8 oz bottle of apple cider vinegar (you want apple cider for the citric acid and you want to put in a bowl because the 1st thing a dishwasher does is drain) then put the bowl on the lower rack and wash nothing but the bowl of vinegar. We have found that the new non phosphate soap is also causing problems we have found that Finish tablets work very well and since they are pre-packaged then there is no risk of too much soap causing problems. If that doesn't help then it's possible that the motor is not turning the spray arm at a high enough speed to circulate the water. Hope this helps.
Check that the holes in the spray arms haven't blocked up and the filters in the bottom are clean. The arms may not be rotating. To check this, when the machine is washing, open the door, turn all the spray arms to face the same direction, shut the door and leave running for about 30 seconds. Open the door again and look at the position of the spray arms. They should have moved.
This isn't recommended, meat tends to get in a lot of the nooks and crannies in a slicer machine. It's best to first unplug the machine, then take it a part in order to properly clean it. If your not sure how to take the machine apart, consult the user's manual for further understand how to do it. Once taken apart, some sort of stainless steal cleaner followed by a sanitizing soap should be used to clean it. Sanitizer is very important especially when dealing with meat products. Once a sanitizer is applied it is recommend that you let the slicer air dry for 4-6 hours before using it again to ensure the sanitizer has fully dissipated.
