Question about Dishwashers
There are various things suggested to avaid this:
Firstly-make sure your filter is clean-empty out any old food residue and replace it nice and clean.
Secondly, rinse off loose food bits under the tap before loading into the dishwasher.
Then use the rinse program before using the main wash.
If you do all of the above you should be getting clean dishes. People often forget their filters and the muck gets back on the plates then dries on with the heat.

Dishwashers need cleaning too :) Take a look inside your dishwasher: Click here http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=41284 then click on PUMP AND MOTOR diagram on the left. Number 47 on that diagram is a filter. Make sure that filter is clean. Then, using a dishwasher cleaner (see below) run your dishwasher through the entire cycle on empty. This should help, post back if it doesn't. Dishwasher cleaners: 1. Vinegar - good cheap solution, if you don't mind the smell :). Dump a gallon inside an empty dishwasher tub and start up the regular wash cycle. 2. CLR - I've been told it works, but never tried myself 3. Dishwasher Magic - This stuff works pretty good. One bottle per use. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/accessories.aspx?part_id=2675393&cat=62&rdr=%2faccessories.aspx%3fcat%3d62 Hope this helps, APP tech http://www.AppliancePartsPros.com

Try adding bicarb of soda/baking soda and vinegar in the detergent dispenser. Bicarb fizzes off hardened particles and vinegar strips off grease and aids rinsing.

If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.
