Question about Dishwashers
I have a approximately 8 year old Kenmore Energy Star Dishwasher. Periodically I have had this problem. The glasses come out after washing with a grit on them. No really a film but gritt that I have to scrub really hard to get off.
Why does this happen and does it have to do with the dishwasher or does it have something to do with the plumbing in my sink.
I use jet dry also.
It's most likely caused by mineral build up within your washer, it's tub, and/ or your water lines. Jet Dry does help this but..
Just like a coffeemaker try running a cycle past the fill cycle, then add a cup of white vinegar and let the cylce complete.
One suggestion would be to add an in line water filter to the dishwasher supply line if there is not one there.
If there is replace it.
Same type you would find on a refridgerater, and replace as often
Let me know if this helps
