SOURCE: my dishwasher leaves a cloudy residue on my dishes

The cloudy residue that is left on your dishes is soap that has not completly broken down.

There are a few solutions to the problem. First off, you want to ensure that you are using the "high temp wash" option. This will boost your water temp during the wash cycle to ensure that all the soap breaks down.

The second thing that you want to do to give your dishwasher a boost, is run the hot water in the sink and make sure it's pipping hot before you start your dishwasher. What this will do is ensure that the water that goes in for the "pre wash" portion of the wash is hot and will improve the wash quality.

Good luck!

SOURCE: new dishwasher leaving powder residue on dishes.

the problem is hard water and there is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. it actually filters the water going into your dishwasher and leaves your dishes spot free. after the first load i was amazed that the white film was gone and my dishes were sparkling. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.

SOURCE: Dishwasher leaves dishes with white residue and walls are flakey

Sounds like a case of hard water and mineral deposits, try Jetdry, or even CLR from home depot and see if it will clean them off.

You could also get a water softener, that will stop all mineral deposits in your home.

SOURCE: Dishwasher leaving white powder residue on dishes.

I have a Bosch also with a similar problem. I cleaned everything that I could (lower screen, etc.) and still had scum. I do have hot and softened water and neither fixed it.
Here is a cheap solution. If it does not work, you are out some vinegar. I started the rinse cycle, once it was full of water, used 1 cup of white vinegar dumped it in the bottom of the washer and ran it through. 20 min. Then ran another rinse cycle to wash it down. Next load came out 5 stars! Just like new. The vinegar can be corrosive if left in there for a long time, but it breaks down a lot of the mineral build up. Very acidic. Hope it works.
