We have a Kenmore Elite model 1772990. The glasses are very cloudy when they finish washing and if you do not scrub the dishes before putting them in the diswasher they come out with the old food on them.
Any ideas on what to do to fix this?

If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1/4 of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well. You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass. Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

We have had a similar problem (suburb of Pittsburgh, Pa.) and it is caused by hard water which is a result of drought conditions. I went to my local hardware store and purchased a product which I put in the dishwasher and ran through regular cycle. Glasses were much better, though as long as we continue with the hard water problem it is only a temporary solution.
brittgee, there has been a number of service flashes on this model. One that has to do with the upper spray arm assy. Complaint is poor washability; gritty glasses, food redeposited on glasses, especially in the corners. They redesigned the upper spray arm to improve water spray to all corners of the upper rack. The new part number is 8269022. They also redesigned the third level spinner for more consistant rotation and better washability. This was also under a service flash. Part number.8193768. Other reasons for poor wash would be; low water temperature, rinse aid disp. not working, loading etc. Catriver...post back.
Dennis, Im assuming your model number starts with 665. This model had a service flash on it regarding the upper spray arm. The upper spray arm has been redesigned for better performance. Part number 8269022. This could be covered by Sears if you mention the service flash, 22-714. Other issues that can lead to this problem are; water hardness, if your water is over 7 grains of hardness, this could to this film on the glasses. Try pouring 1/4 cup of Glass Majic into the bottom of the dishwasher. Also run one cup of white vinegar to clean the dishwasher. Make sure the water temp. entering the dishwasher is 120 min. to 150 degrees. Catriver..post back.
