You say your new oven...and DW have stains...I will assume (if that's OK) that you have a stainless steel oven...and are washing stainless steel in the DW...but you are having streaks and or white...spots or deposits...Sounds like hard water...you may try a localized..(just for the DW and kitchen sink area) filtration system...to reduce hardness of water...(is this well water)..if so you definitely need filtration...if you don't already have it.
Here are some issues and or cleaning techniques for stainless steel.

stainless steel is known for its ability to be a clean surface that resists corrosion and rust. Dirt, dust and grime, however, put stainless steel at risk for corrosion and rust. Luckily, stainless steel responds well to cleaning, never wearing out from excessive cleaning, as long as certain rules are followed. 1. Water and a cloth.
Routine cleaning can be accomplished by using warm water and a cloth. This is the least risky option For cleaning stainless steel. Dry with a towel or cloth to prevent water spots. Wipe in the directions of the polish lines.
2. Mild detergent, (dish washing liquid) and cloth.
For cleaning that needs more power, mild detergent and warm water can do a great job without damaging the stainless steel. Make sure you rinse the surface thoroughly to prevent staining and spotting. Towel dry to prevent water spots which can be caused by minerals in water.
3. Glass cleaner for fingerprints.
Fingerprints are one of the biggest complaints about stainless steel, but can be taken care by using glass cleaner or household ammonia. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry. There are some newer types of finishes for stainless steel that resist fingerprints, a must if your pint-sized helpers leave their mark on your stainless steel appliances.
4. stainless steel Cleaner.
If you’ve had staining or scratching, or need to polish your stainless steel, a stainless steel cleaner may be a good option. Some of these cleaners and polishes can help minimize scratching and remove stains. They also can polish stainless steel surfaces nicely. Read the directions on the stainless steel cleaner and test in an inconspicuous spot. Be sure to rinse thoroughly and towel dry.

If this does not help please clarify...with specific model #'s and walk me through (step by step) what the specific problem is and how you address it....Thank you and I hope this helps.............
Good Luck...........The Fang.

How to clean stubborn burned on stains in the stainless steel oven


You need to use ordinary soap as a lubricant and a fine steel wool to buff the steel surface. That will remove any built up surface debris completely but you may still have some discolouration of the metal remain.
An automotive polish designed for polishing stainless steel and aluminium (available from auto parts stores) might finish the job for you and remove much of any remaining staining but I would not use a chemical of that type on an inside surface that is used for cooking your food. (Same issue with those dreadful chemical and toxic oven cleaners).

Unfortunately, with use of the unit and heat , you will get some residual discolouration of the stainless steel.

How to clean the oven


The inside of the oven can be cleaned with regular soap and water. Dawn works well on built up grease. if you have very stubborn stains easy off makes a low fume oven cleaner, but try hot soapy water first. the outside can be cleaned with any stainless steel cleaner or window cleaner.

Kenmore Dishwasher - stops cleaning dishes - 2 techs just scratch their heads - any suggestions? water is hot, changed soap, still not even coffee stains inside cups are cleaned, let alone the rest.


ensure spray arm holes are not blocked, the water level is good, the spray of water is strong, it is heating and the tablet is entering the wash, not much else can cause a bad wash. note dishwasher may not always be able to get rid of some coffee stains.

Stainless steel appliances ie. refrig, dishwasher & oven


a quality s/s cleaner and a clean cloth sould do the trick for most stains, WD-40 also works to remove the stains, works really well, also leaves afilm on the metal to prevent stains from adhering, just dont use paper towells, the tend to leave fibers behind. and also look closely at the s/s there is a GRAIN pattern in the metal just like wood would have a grain!! be sure to wipe in the direction with the grain not against.
