Re: Rinse solution stays on the glasses
First chech the machine is warming the rinse water and not rinsing in cold water then have your chemical guy come and check that the soap/rinse ad dispenser is not dispensing too much rinse aid and naturally make sure the machine is in fact ricing with water I have had it where a glass washer takes more rinse aid then i should and does not actually rinse with clean watr it was simply spraying the rinse aid wich sounded as if it was rinsing soulution was new pc board it was not changeing programs properly if you have and older machine it proberly has a timer this too can be a cuase of the problm if it is not clicking over to allow a full rinse cycle.Hope this helps let us know.

Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!
I see that you are having an issue with your rinse aid dispenser not adding rinse aid into your Frigidaire dishwasher. You may need to run hot water into your dispenser to help clear out any dirt or clogs within your dispenser. If that does not help I would recommend making sure the water temperature inside your dishwasher is at 120 degrees. If the water is not at the correct temperature it will not allow proper dispensing of the rinse aid. You may also want to check the filter at the bottom of your dishwasher to assure that it has been cleaned out and is not distributing dirt or debris inside of your dishwasher. I would also recommend checking the spray arms to make sure they are not dirty and spray water evenly. You can clean them out using a pipe cleaner. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt
I do not have enough information to be able to answer with hundred percent certainty.
From my experience, the most common problem is the improper handling of the appliance. Driven by overwhelming commercials we often pass from detergent to tablets. The largest number of tablets contains rinse aid that we already have in the dispenser. Practical adding a double dose of rinse aid resulting in poor washing results and glasses look like washed in milk. The solution is to open the dispenser and put the dosage rinse aid to minimum. In electronic dishwashers new generation is even possible to completely exclude the dosage rinse aid if you are using tablets.
This option can be selected by pressing the corresponding button, and remains in memory until the same
button is pressed again. This option modifies the phases of the programme in order to optimize performance
when "3 in 1, 5 in 1, 7 in 1, ......." detergent tablets are used:
- variation of the duration of the programme and the temperatures required to dissolve the detergent tablets.
- reduction of water exchange
- exclusion of introduction of rinse-aid
- exclusion of regeneration
If you use a dishwasher in the traditional manner (detergent, rinse aid, salt) then the Multitab function is disabled. If you use tabs that are already on the market with rinse aid and salt there is a possibility during washing cycle to add a double dose of rinse aid. From rinse aid dispenser and rinse aid from tabs. This will lead to poor cleaning results, glasses will look like they have been washed in milk..To avoid that you must turn on "Multitab" function and thus exclusion of introduction of rinse-aid from rinse aid dispenser. This function also stops the regeneration and will not spend salt because salt is already in a tabs. Also extends the washing time because tablets need more time to dissolve in relation to the traditional powder detergent.
Not sure about the rinse agent but the film is caused by hard water.
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.
Hello.. Firstly check thet the spray arms are clean. make sure there arent any jets blockd. Make sure the spray arms turn freely. Before closing the door on a cycle spin the arms to ensure no item is stopping the turning action.
make sure all of the water pumps out of the machine. There should be only a small amount of water under the filter after use. Any blockages should be cleared. Check where the drain connects under the sink for a partial blockage down the spiggot.
So if all this is Ok then ensure there is rinse aid in the dispenser. do not use tablets onlyrinse aid in the dispenser provided. Use a small amount of powder in the dispenser. Too much powder can over saturate the solution doing the wash and leave too much cloudy residue.
I assume the water being used is not too hard. It can look clear in a glass but be too hard. Especially artesian water.
You might try an acid descaler to return the machine to an internally clean condiditn. By the way always use a hort cycle. Economy cycles dont do yhe jop over a long period. You need to have a hot 70 degree cycle regularly.
The rinse cycle is the same as the wash except the wash uses detergent and the rinse uses rinse aid.
The rinse cycle will dispense rinse aid if you have filled the dispenser. Check this first, that would be the most likely cause. Also in the spring as the water table table in most cities begins to rise the water quality goes down, extra calcium in the water can cause this problem.
Here is a link to help understand that. Let me know if you have questions.
If the glasses are spotty from hard water try a rinse aid like Jet Dry. If they are actually dirty, depending on the brand of DW you may need to rinse them better before putting them in the DW. Not all brands are cerated equally, some do work better then others
The most common cause of film left behind is a broken heating element.
The heating element is not only used during the dry cycle, but also to raise the water temp. during the main wash cycle to activate the dishwasher detergent. Fixing the heating element should "clear" this problem right up!
