    Are you using the type and amount of detergent and rinsing solution recommended by Whirlpool?  Do you have any water supply problems (hard water, iron, minerals) that might be causing the problem?

  • Dan Todd May 11, 2010

    If it is fairly new is it still under warranty?

Check and inspect spray arms to see if they are clean especially at the ends there is a small hole at each end which needs to be clear to turn spray arm. Addition, Make sure water is sufficient in basin after fill.Well water could clock fill valve. Consider gel instead of powder if water is hard.Thank you

Dishwasher leaving a white film on dishes after wash/dry cycle


Well, that usually happens if the water in the area has too much alkali metals, such as calcium and magnesium.
Try putting some salt together with the detergent before you start the cycle.
And if it still does, try washing the finished dishes again with clean water, i mean, without detergent...

There is a whitish film left on dishes/glasses/silverware after wash cycle is finished.


Are you using Jet Dri or another type of rinse agent? If not, that will become your main issue. These machines HAVE to have it, or they wont remove that film. Also, have you changed washing agent (soap) etc. You may be using a little to much. Other issues that can cause this are: bad drain or main pump unit, clogged drain hose, etc. Let me know if you need any other help or information.
