This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there.

Dishwasher magic is a very good Dishwasher cleaner.

I would also recommend checking the water temp. it should be about a
120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

I work on commercial dishwashers. However, results issues are typically standard. Make sure to use a rinse additive. Hazy look sounds like a hard water problem. You did not mention if this is a new issue or a continual one. If you have a water softener check to make sure that it is using salt. Do not overload the dishwasher and see how they come out. I use Electrosol because I have hard water. My mom uses Cascade because she has a water softener. I am not plugging for Electrosol because I do not even know if it has any softening agents. I just know that my glasses come out clean.

The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

It turned my glassware cloudy; what caused that & how do I clean them?


Usually too hot a wash and lack of rinse aid. I don't use (or recommend) the "all in 1 tablets" The dispensers on dishwashers are made for powder and liquid rinse aid. You should use them. Running the glassware through the machine again with these products will usually clear the cloudiness. Make sure the bottom drain filters are cleaned regularly as well. I recommend "Finish" products, they are pretty good and give a good result.

CLOUDY GLASSWARE


Cloudy glassware happens when your glasses are etched by the combination of your water and the dishwashing detergent you are using. Once the etching occurs, you can't really do anything about it. If you are not doing so, try using a rinse agent such as Jet-Dry. This will help prevent the etching/cloudiness.
I hope this helps. If so , please come back and rate my suggestion.

Our Maytag MDB9100AWB is 5 years old. Have had repairman out several times. Problem is a light cloudy scum on everything. He has replaced several items, has had us clean parts and fixtures, etc and even...


There are three typical causes of chronic cloudiness on glassware/dishes.
  1. The incoming water may be too hot. Make sure the water is at or below 140 degrees F.
  2. Test to see if cloudiness is removable by hand cleaning or soaking for 5 minutes in white vinegar. If it is removable, it's due to hard water. Use a good quality detergent, and match the amount of detergent used to the water hardness and use a rinse aid. (Some low quality detergents clean poorly and leave a film.)
  3. Glassware may be etched, due to too much detergent, too high water temperature, or pre-washing. Etching is not reversible, so it's important to correct the problem promptly.
Hopefully these hints will help you to home in on the problem.

Cloudy glasses


Dishwashing detergent will etch fine glassware. Don't wash them in the dishwasher.

Glasses are not clean, come out cloudy and someimes have small food particles left on glasses


When the glassware comes out with a film on them (cloudy) the most common problem is a failed heating element. When it is repaired, the wash water will be heated to the proper temp to activate the dishwasher powder/detergent.

Please report back here what you find. OK?

Not coming clean


Hi, Are you using Jet Dry Rinse Agent? It is very important to keep the washer supplied with this stuff. Otherwise, glassware will come out with a cloudy film and water spots. If you are using it, perhaps it is not being dispensed by the machine. I am having this trouble now, but my machine is about 10 years old, and has always turned out beautiful glassware unless it ran out of Jet Dry. Now, there seems to be a problem in my machine not dispensing it, and I was searching for a solution when I came across your posting. Baxterdog
