Usually indicative of clogged spray heads, or spray arms not spinning, too much detergent for your water type, wrong detergent, and low water temp.

Check the manual for amounts of detergent to use based on your water hardness.

My glasses & silverwear have streaks & spots on them. I have a water softener & don't use jetdry since we were told that would be the cause of the streaking/spotting. I have new glasses &...


First off whoever told you jet dry causes streaks has not been repairing dishwasher like I have for the last 40 years. All I will say is use the Jet Dry even with a water softener. Buy the little hanging mini-basket type ones and replace them as they are consumed.
Water flow problems are what cause streaks. The water flow problems can be caused by several things:
1. Clogged spray arm holes (Clean wash arms)
2. Sump inlets that are blocked with debris or plastic (Clean inlets)
3. POOR DRAIN FUNCTION ( a. Inspect all parts of the drain going backward from the sink connection
1) The sink connection is uaually at the side of garbage disposal. Remove the hose from the sink connection and clean out the port.
2) The AIR-GAP is the where 75% of the drain restrictions mainfest. Lift off the Air-Gap cover then unscrew the inner cap nut NOTING the installed position of the inner cap because you can only install it ONE WAY. Lift off the cap and remove an debris inside. Use a flashlight and inspect for any debris deep inside the Air Gap,
3) Inspect the Drain hose from the Air Gap to the Dishwasher drain hose connection for any kinks or folds. If you note wither a kink or a fold take a stick over the outside of the hose like you were putting on a splint.
4) Remove the drain hose from the dishwasher connection and inspect for debris. Clean as necessary. Just note there is power under the dishwasher that can reach out and grab you so make sure the power is off before working under the dishwasher.

Reassemble everything power it up, use the Jet Dry and let me know how the dishes turn out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

How did I get the film off my glassware? My glassware has a thick film that is very unappealing. I have to hand wash them. I use cascade detergent.


If you are not using a water softener use a rinse aid such as Jet Dry. This will help to eliminate scum on glassware. Use the solid form of Jet Dry. If you use a water softener you need to decrease the amount of detergent.
You can determine the cause of cloudy glassware by soaking a glass in vinegar for 5 minutes. If the cloudiness is removed it is a hard water deposit and more detergent is likely needed. If the cloudiness is not removed it is a permanent condition known as etching. In this situation, use less detergent and stop pre-washing. In actuality, dishwashing detergent needs a bit of soil to work on, otherwise it will tend to foam up.

The problem is hard water. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a product to solve this problem once and for all. It filters the water going into your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that leave those spots. It is very affordable and even has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look with this product.

Glasses are not getting clean and sparkling


HI. Usually this will be the result of heavy calcium build up inside the unit. This will produce the film on the glassware and silverware, as well. To remedy this issue, i would advise to purchase a concentrated dishwasher cleaner. One of the best on the market that i use on my costumers units is call Dishwasher magic. There are others out there, but this one actually works well. Use this every month, if you do not have a water softener device attached to your home plumbing.

I would also advise to make sure that the fine particle filter is clear of all debris. Debris in this area will obstruct the recirculating factors of the unit, thus, producing poor cleaning and horrible drying results.

Whirlpool Gold dishwasher


Either:
  1. not enough water gets into the dishwasher. check water valve, water level float and water pressure.
  2. the pump is clogged - there is water, the motor will run but no water is circulated. Check pump filters, check chopper and impeller.
Good luck,
Vlad

The cups and silverware come out with food on them


I recommend rinsing the food off before placing the items in the dishwasher. Also, run the hot water in the sink until it is hot before you turn on the dishwasher. good luck

Whirlpool gold dishwasher leaves film on dishes


are you in a hard water area such as florida ? do you have a water softener? if so take a can of frozen concentrate orange juice and put the frozen hunk in the bottom of dishwasher and run for one cycle. the citric acid will dissolve undisolved soap . this works much better. than vinegar which will only remain through the first cycle and then drain out as for the already grey glasses wash them in a solution of equal amounts red wine vinegar and water with just a touch of dish soap using a sponge.
