Particulates left on plates after cycle

My dishwasher often leaves lots of particulates on the dishes after it has run the cycle. I have checked the screens on the bottom of the machine, and they are not clogged with debris. It seems that there must be a problem with filters and/or drainage, but I can't figure it out. Any suggestions you have would be appreciated.

Some dishes and silverware ends up with a cloudy film on it.


Usually this is a contanimation issue, check and clean all drain filters, look for particulate matter in the spray ports, Usually you have to take the whole thing apart and clean debris.

My Bosch doesn't clean and leaves a lot of particulate matter on the dishes-- that seems to be coming from somewhere other than the dishwasher????


You need to clean it with either white vinegar, or either of the two products that have citric acid in them. (Dishwasher Magic or Lemi Shine). I like the Lemi Shine the best.

Hi, it sounds like your dishwasher is plugged up with soap deposits, and/or Calcium deposits.
In an empty dishwasher, put 2 cereal/soup bowls full of vinegar on bottom shelf, and run your dishwasher.
This should clean out all the deposits.
I do this about once every six weeks as our water is very hard.

The dishwasher is not dring the dishes


How old is this unit? Are you removing the dishes at the end of the cycle or leaving them? Are you filling the rinse aid dispenser? The new dishwasher will not dry properly without rinse aid. Dishes have to be removed at the end of the cycle because a dishwasher is a moist environment moisture will reform on the dishes if left with door closed. A dishwasher does not have a fan to move the moist.

After my dishwashing cycle is complete there is a residue left on the dishes -- I only fill the soap half way and i use a rinse agent.....


Dishwashers work best when the following "rules" are followed.

1. Rinse food off of the dishes before you place them in the dishwasher.

2. Face plates toward the center and do not over crowd them.

3. Always put glasses on the top shelf and always put plates on the bottom.

4. Run the hot water in the sink until it is as hot as it will get before you start the dishwasher.

5. If your dishwasher has a pot scrubber cycle use it and it will make a difference.

Doing these things should solve your problem. If not, let me know.

Disdwaser leaves spots on dishes


You simply need to use a product called Jetdry for a couple of weeks until all the traces of factory solvents etc. work out of the machine. Sometimes if you have a really high concentration of particulates in your water the problem will continue and that is what the Jetdry is for. It isn't the new dishwashers problem it is the local water. One permanent solution is to hook up a water purifier/softner in order to clean the water up. Jetdry is used in many areas and is perfectly safe. Good Luck this will help.

Dishwasher Soap scum left on dishes


the problem is hard water. There is a new product out called The Dishwasher Filtration System. It filters the water going into your dishwasher leaving your dishes spot free with every load. It is very affordable and fits right under the sink. You will be amazed how sparkling your dishes look just after one load. You will love this product. Get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.
