Buy a box of brand name dishwasher detergent powder. Stop using generic, ultra-cheap soaps, they are filled with "filler" minerals that accumulate in the dishwasher and build up in the plates and silverware.
Good Luck!

Having sand and dirt particles left on my dishes. What do I do


Considering you don't eat sand and dirt, I can only assume that the source of this contamination is from your water supply. Installation of a filter, either on the dishwasher supply line or preferably, the entire home, would solve this issue.

What happens when you add sand to soapy water?


Hi, Don't ever put sand in a dish washer. You can destroy the seals in the pump and other components. Only use recommended soaps for machine. Good luck.

Kenmore ultra wash dishwasher leaks from the bottom of the door edge


You electic water valve is sticking open, they get sand etc in there, and can not close, and will not shut the water input off. Do you have city water, or your own well water? Very common problem with well water, sand will clog the return of the water valve from shuttin off the water. Easy to check if you can shut the power off, and water off. dis-assemble the water inlet valve( first thing the input warter goes to)

My dishes come out with a gritty sand all over them.


If you live in an area with hard water, the grit is probably hard water deposits. Dishwasher detergents no longer contain phosphate, so the detergents often leave behind hard water deposits on your dishes. There is a great solution at www.cloudydishes.com

I have a LG dishwasher model # LDS5811WW is there a filter of some sort at the water intake? My water has be known to have sand in it . The dishes are not all washing some are some aren't.


No filter in these units. It is possible that sand has gotten into the sump assembly and is not allowing the vario motor to properly switch between the upper and lower spray nozzles.

Dirty Dishes after dishwasher has finished


You may be getting sand in from the supply lines. Fill a clear glass container from the sink a few times and look at the bottom for sand particles. You may be getting sand from a pool filter? Remove the filter from the faucet head (it should unscrew) and look for sand particles in it. You may not be getting them in the kitchen sink if the dishwater inlets are below the sink as the particles may be sinking to the bottom of the pipes. You may need to put a filter in the dishwasher inlet. Try filling the dishwasher by hand with bottled water once and then see if the sand is still there. If so, it probably comes in through the water supply.
