    I have the same problem, I have the dishwasher for a number of years. It worked fine until some months ago. I asked a repairman to take a look at it, and his suggestion was to get rid of it. It's a troublesome model, in his opinion.

I don't know if its hooked up to hot water or if it heats the water itself, but it was always hot and loads of steam at the end of the cycle, now there is no steam when I open the door and the dishes feel cold and wet! Not sure what's going on!

Dishwashers are suppose to be hooked up to hot water. If you had hotter water it would clean just fine. 120 deg or more!

Must the water supply be hot water or can one connect cold water


most dishwashers use hot water to obtain a clean finish for the utensils
You could use cold water but I think that any grease would not be dissolved properly from off the plates leaving plates and glasses with streaks and a greasy feeling

Dishwater residue is a fairly common occurrence, and several things can cause it. Even the newest dishwashers may leave residue, and it might have nothing to do with the actual dishwasher function itself. However, there are things you can do to prevent, limit or completely remove dishwasher residue during every washing cycle.

  1. Detergent Residue
    • Modern phosphate-free detergents are the main culprits when it comes to detergent residue. After every wash, many leave a slight whitish residue behind. After several washings, the residue becomes caked on and leaves a noticeable white tint to your dishes. Some dishwasher detergent brands are better than others, and either minimize residue or do not leave any. Once residue is present, however, the only way to remove it is by hand scrubbing or scraping.
    Hard-Water Residue
    • Hard-water residue comes from non-softened water from your hot water tank. Non-softened water leaves a white tint on dishes, but no amount of scrubbing will remove it. Only by wiping a small patch of the dish with vinegar or lemon juice will you be able to ascertain whether the white residue left is hard water or detergent. The slight acidic action of the vinegar or lemon juice removes hard-water stains, but they have no effect on detergent residue.
    Greasy Residue
    • If the dishes feel greasy when they come out of the dishwasher freshly washed, you are dealing with a greasy residue. There are two main reasons for this: either the detergent is not an effective grease remover, or the hot water inside of the dishwasher, either from the hot water tank or the dishwasher's heating elements, is not hot enough. Boosting the hot water temperature on the water tank may solve the problem, and a second wash cycle may be needed for the dishes. A preventive measure of running the dishwasher empty with a full load of detergent also removes the residue inside of the dishwasher.
    Streaking and Spotting Residue
    • If you have spotting or streaking on your dishes, that may be a sign you need a rinse agent. Many modern dishwashers recommend a rinse agent to prevent spotting or streaking, and without one, your dishes will never be crystal clear or streak-free. The next time you do a dishwasher load, add a rinse agent. If the dishes come out spot- and streak-free, the problem is solved.

If you're sure you're using enough soap, check that your hot water is connected and that you're using a hot-water wash (some dishwashers have a cold-water option, this will often give unsatisfactory results if washing greasy dishes - especially beef fat).

My Whirlpool Quiet Partner II does not clean the upper rack of dishes properly. They are greasy. I have checked the top spray arm for blockages. There were none. I am fairly certain that water is


Make sure the center loading is not obstructing the water jet to the top shelf. Top shelf is only for glasses and saucers , use Jet-Dry .Pre rinse and clean bottom pan strainer from dirt debris.

It' no longer cleaning my dishes


hello,

If your dishes are coming out of the dishwasher covered by a removable dirty film, your water may not be hot enough, or you could be using an inferior brand of automatic dishwashing detergent. If you have tested your hot water and find it is between 140 degrees and 160 degrees Fahrenheit, consider how long it takes for the hot water to reach the dirty dishes in the dishwasher. If the hot water has to travel a long distance to reach the dishwasher, chances are the water filling the dishwasher starts out cold. To alleviate this problem, run the hot water nearest to your dishwasher until the water coming out is hot. This will guarantee the water filling the dishwasher is as hot as it should be to properly clean dirty dishes.

To remove this type of film from dirty dishes, after running the dishes through a basic rinse cycle, set a bowl filled with a cup or two of white vinegar on the lowest rack of the dishwasher. Remove any metal pans or utensils, and with the vinegar on the bottom rack, wash the dishes as usual. Dirty dishes that were once covered in film should come out squeaky clean

thanks.

We have a matsui mf160 dishwashwasher and it is struggling to get items clean - esp greasy items - i have also noticed it is not hot at the end of the cycle so i think the problem is there is no hot water....


The dishwasher's heater is likely shot. Get a new heating element. The same heater drys and the end but also heats the hot water during the wash cycle. No hot water = dirty dishes.

I have a greasy buildup on my dishwasher filter.


It is the grease left on dishes or pots & pans. It can be cleaned off using a good regular dishwashing detergent like Dawn in the sink, not in the dishwasher. To prevent it, scrape the dishes & pots better, and if possible, turn the temperature of the hot water up a few degrees. You should also change dishwasher detergents to a liquid, with a built in water softener.

Upper rack is not cleaning. Greasy dishes on top seem that dishes are not being washed. Seems the upper water turning dispenser is not working, Bottom rack seems ok. I guess I only have half a dish washer...


Check the upper arm for free spinning, then remove the arm and check that the seam between the upper and lower halves has not split somewhere. Also check all the small holes for debris plugging. Run the machine in wash cycle for a little while with the upper arm off--that should flush out anything blocking the pipe up to the arm. If still nothing from the upper arm, tear down the lower arm assembly down to the deck while noting position of all parts removed. Clean the big screen at the bottom in white vinegar and hot water. Inspect the holes in the bottom for anything blocking them.
