Dirty Dishes after dishwasher has finished

Hi, my dishes are still dirty and the cups have a sand like substance in them when the cycle has finished.

    Our dishwasher is having a similar problem, it feels like fine sand is on all the dishes, and in the glasses and cups mostly. Plates are coming clean after wash though. Ive switched detergents a half a dozen times and we do use jet dry. Please help, as I do NOT want to wash all these holiday dishes by hand =)

There is a new product out that filters the water going into your dishwasher. it works great and my dishes look fantastic. they use to look dirty with a white film on them. after the first load when i hooked up the dishwasher filter my dishes looked brand new. it is affordable and works everytime. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. it also filters out rust and sediments so it should remove the sand like particles.

    I struggled with sand in the bottom of my glasses for months. In reading the reviews, I was tipped off to check the nozzles of my spray arms. I had noticed previously that the top spray arm did not turn during the cleaning cycle.
    As it turns out, the outside nozzles were completely clogged from small pieces of paper, chips off my dishes and detergent build-up from too much detergent usage. Upon cleaning of the nozzles with a screwdriver in the sink (my spray arms simply snap off), the dischwasher works like a new one!

You may be getting sand in from the supply lines. Fill a clear glass container from the sink a few times and look at the bottom for sand particles. You may be getting sand from a pool filter? Remove the filter from the faucet head (it should unscrew) and look for sand particles in it. You may not be getting them in the kitchen sink if the dishwater inlets are below the sink as the particles may be sinking to the bottom of the pipes. You may need to put a filter in the dishwasher inlet. Try filling the dishwasher by hand with bottled water once and then see if the sand is still there. If so, it probably comes in through the water supply.

Dishwasher not cleaning dishes


hi paula.
Insufficient water in the dishwasher also can cause poorcleaning. If the float gets stuck in the raised position, thedishwasher won't fill with water (Photo 3). Another likely cause is a clogged inlet screen or faulty inlet valve. ... To determine if your dishwasher is getting enough water, start a wash cycle.

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.

Dishes are not getting clean


Hi there.
In the bottom of the dishwashers is normally a filter with a handle on it for easy removal. pull it up, gently, you might have to turn it slightly from side to side to loosen it if it is very dirty. When this filter is out you will see another filter that is just lifted straight up and on that one you might find a lot of dirt.Put both filters in a 10 liter bucket with on cup of chlorine(diluted to 5%) to 5 liters of water. Pour some chlorine( 2 cups) into the bottom of the machine, and close the door and let the machine run on its hottest cycle until finished. When the machine is finished, rinse out the filters in the bucket with warm water. Brush the rest of the dirt off and replace them where they were. Run the machine once again, now on a normal cycle with the dishes in it and I believe they will be clean.
Iceman.

Mold growing on dishes


Recommend that you run another cycle with no DW soap aded, waiting until the dishwasher has filled with hot water and begins to do the first wash cycle. Then add 1/2 cup of bleach to the water and close the door. Allow the cycle to finish. Run it normally with a standard load of dirty dishes. Note: These high efficiency dishwashers count on the "dirt" of the dirty dishes to help wash/clean the dishes. Recommend you not rinse/wash the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.

Watch for any occurrence of the black dots and repeat the bleach treatment.

Dirty glasses


there is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. it actually filters the water going into your dishes. the dishes look dirty because your water has a lot of calcium and magnesium in it making them appear cloudy or dirty. the dishwasher filter reduces those minerals and my dishes look perfect now. no more dirty and grimy looking dishes. i also dont waste time washing them by hand before and after the dishwasher. hahaha you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. use code DFMTEN and you will get 10% off. it fits right under your sink and is very affordable. you will be glad you bought this product. thanks
