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

I just took mine apart (bottom turntable, screen, etc.) and I was disgusted by the grime and gum that was clogging everything. I think it was keeping all the water a gritty white, which constantly left residue. I am currently running a load... hope that the "clean" dishwasher actually washes my dishes now!

That sounds like the float switch is acting up. It is a mushroom looking device on the bottom that has a movable (up and down) plastic cup over the top. With the machine off, take the lower tray out and lift up on the cup--you should hear a faint 'click' when it nears the upper limit. It should also drop to the bottom when released. There may be food deposits that interfere with the proper movement of the cup. Are you using dish washer detergent only?

Dishes on the top rack not cleaning properly

Had similar problem with our Maytag dishwasher--we removed all spray and screen components to the inner case, cleaned the intake screen below the lower spray arm, repaired a split upper spray arm, and inspected everything for cracks or other distortion. All of this helped some, but finally improved things by changing from liquid detergent to a "packet" type. Our water is somewhat hard and builds deposits on the screen at the bottom. Run a no-dish cycle with a cup of white vinegar in the bottom.

Poor cleaning leaving deposits,dishes feel dirty

The problem for the spots is hard water. There is a new product out at that solves this problem once and for all. It is a small filter that goes under the sink and filters out the hard minerals that cause these spots from the water before they enter the dishwasher. It is very affordable (like 70 bucks) and even has a money back guarantee. After just one load you will be amazed how your dishes look.

Dishes have soap residue despite using rinse aid. Machine is quite abrasive on coffee mugs etc. Unit is Fisher & Paykel DD605SS

use less soap.....excess soap in the rinse cycle will not allow the dishes to rinse properly causing white etching on the glasses and the dishes will have that gritty feeling

It sounds like there could be a gritty deposit in the bottom of the system. At the start of the cycle the unit takes in a set amount of water and recycles it around to the drying phase.

Try and run the diswasher a few times with no items in it - this will may help to flush it out.

If the gritty deposit coloured white this could be that your new home has more limescale in its supply. Try getting dishwasher tablets with limescale protection to see if that helps.

Finally, please ensure the spray arms free to rotate on each cycle. Failure to do this leaves grit on certain items and not others.

Please dont forget to rate.
