Question about Dishwashers

After cycle, there is grit on my dishes

When it runs it cycle and is done, there is grit on some of the dishes and some just won't come clean. My dishwasher is about a year old and this just started happening in the last 3 wks. I have used the same powder detergent ever since. Another troubleshooting website told me to check the particle filter and inlet filter screens. What and where the heck are these??

Dishwasher leaves cloudy grit on everything


Is your state one the banned phosphates? If so, try adding a tablespoon of TSP to the detergent. If not, is there galvanized steel in your water supply? The grit in most washing aids removal of food on the dishes but is supposed to be gone by the rinse.

Tip

Dishwasher Leaving Food on Dishes After D/W's Done?


Buy Diswhasher Magic or TANG Orange Juice Powder. Empty out the dishwasher. Add a cup of TANG to bottom and run through a complete cycle. If you use D/W Magic, follow the directions on the box.

The citrus in the Magic or the TANG eats up all the grime and grease from the dishwasher and cleans out the spray arms and all the water flow parts on your unit that has collected over time.

Afterwards, you should have sparkling clean dishes free of grit and grime on your CLEAN dishes.

Sand and grit residue on the glasses and coffee mugs after running cleaning cycle, unless the dishes are rinsed off first, and where are the filters and how do you clean them.


Do you have hard water? Many states have passed laws that outlawed phosphate as an ingredient in dishwasher detergent. If you have hard water, the detergents don't work very well anymore. The "sand and grit" is probably hard water deposits (calcium and magnesium). Not harmful but it looks awful on your dishes. There are some new products that were designed to solve this exact problem. They are inexpensive and effective. Can't say the name or I'll get banned (again). Internet search will uncover it.

Dishwasher deposits dirt on dishes. Grit, small particles.


I have the same problem. We cleaned the dishwasher out because the grit was coming from the dishwasher...however, we still have dirt/grit in our dishes, but a lot less. How do we get rid of this all together?

Dishes do not come out clean?


is the salt container cap damaged or loose? is the rinse aid topped up? if all ok then are you scraping most of the food from the plates, this can cause old food to mush, pulp and leave grit on dishes.

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.


Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.
