Hard water is the reason for the white film. it is calcium and magnesium deposits actually. There is a new product out at www.dishwasherfilter.com that is made specifically to fix this problem. It filters the water going only into your dishwasher leaving your dishes spot free with every load. It is very affordable and guaranteed to work or your money back. You will love the way your dishes look after the very first load.

Place a cup of vinegar in top rack corner (upright) and run an empty cycle to clean any build up.
Stop using any rinse-aid (jet-dry etc.), if the detergent you're using already has it included. Too much rinse-aid can create a white film on your dishes. A good way to check for rinse-aid build up is to run your fingers on the inside of the cabinet and check for a white powdery residue on your fingers. You can also run the dishwasher for a couple of minutes and check for excess suds in the water when you open it. Excess suds would indicate a rinse-aid build up.
Run the hot water at the tap before starting the cycle and make sure it's at the recommended temperature (120-140°F).
Good luck!

Dishes in my Whirlpool Dishwasher is not cleaning dishes in the upper rack. It is also leaving a white film on the dishes.


Hello Mike,

What ya want to try is to clean the filter screen on the wash pump and see if that helps to circulate water better resulting in better washability.
This video will show ya how to take apart and clean the wash motor/pump area

Dishwasher Residue and Film on Dishes


<p>If your <b>dishwasher does not seem to be cleaning well</b> anymore and you are getting<b> residue and film left on your dishes</b> then you need to read this.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Since July of 2010 the US Government has mandated that <b>dishwasher detergents</b> contain no more then 0.05% phosphates in them. The Detergents before this had contained up to 8.7% phosphates. The restrictions were for 16 states but many companies then dropped the phosphates from detergents to all states...<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Now if you are having the <b>scum, film, and white residue problems</b> in your <b>dishwasher, </b>there is hope.<br /> <p><span>There is a product that you can buy that will compensate for what the makers of the </span><b>dishwasher detergents</b><span> have left out. This product as commonly know as </span><b>TSP</b><span> or </span>(<b>Trisodium Phosphate</b>).<br /> <p>By adding this to your dishwasher, you can manually add back the phosphates to your dishwasher and enhance the cleaning process.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Now the nest question...how much TSP do I add to the dishwasher?<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>For many dishwashers, waters, and for normal loads you will find that a tablespoon or two is all that you will need. For very hard to clean dishes and for some types of water you may need to add up to a 1/3 cup of TSP. <br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>If you are having problems with your <b>dishes not getting clean</b>, a <b>black or scum film</b>, or <b>white residue</b> being left on your dishes at the end of the cycle, then I would start with a tablespoon or two and then adjust from there. Figure out how much you need to add to you dishwasher to make your <b>dishwasher detergent </b>work correctly for you again.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>To best part is that you can have <b>clean dishes </b>coming from your dishwasher again!!<br /> <p><br /> <br />
