Glasses have milky film after running the dishwasher.


This "milky-like" film is hard water build up in your dishwasher that is depositing it back onto your dishes. To solve this you can get the product called Lemi-Shine at any store or on line. The first time you need to put about 2 heaping table spoons into the dishwasher with no dishes in it and run a normal cycle. Then load and put 1 table spoon in it for about 4 times and you will see the "milky-like" film go away. After that you will need to do a Lemi-Shine cleaning 1 a week. The Lemi-Shine has the directions on the container. I know this cause I use to have the same problem at my house and this works. Good luck. And thank you for the question.

Dishwasher still turns on but stopped cleaning dishes.


Hey, Matt

If the "soap" left on the dishes is a filmy residue, especially on the glasses, you probably have a failed heating element. The heating element is not only used for drying cycle, but also during the wash cycle to "activate" the detergent.

If the residue is not a film-type stuff, suspect a blockage in the sump/impeller/wash pump area. Check also for blocked holes in the wash arms.

Good Luck! Please report back what you find, OK?

Spotty, filmy glasses


Even if you are sending it 120 degree water from your hot water heater, if the internal heating element has failed, your will get poor cleaning, including a film on your glassware.
Replacing the heating element will almost certainly fix the problem.
Good Luck!

Very filmy looking glasses


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.
