White film left on the dishes after going through the dishwasher. Why?


Too much rinse agent. If you are using powder or gel, set pointer knob on rinse agent dispenser to a lower setting. If you were using the tablets, they have rinse agent built into them, and the additional rinse agent from the dispenser equals a double dose, so the film shows up. Stop using tablets until liquid rinse agent dispenser is empty.

Hello, our Kenmore dishwasher's rinse agent dispenser is overflowing and won't empty. We haven't been able to add vinegar (all we have ever used in it) for a very long time. The dishes are definitely not...


Open the cap to the rinse despensor.
There is an arrow in the center that turns.
Turn it a click or 2 toward the dish washer bottom.
The more it faces the bottom the more rinse agent it will despense.
I hope this helps you....

Doesn't clean properly, Leaves dry residue in washer


My dishwasher had the same problem. glasses were cloudy, inside the dishwasher was coated with a film, drawers were hard to pull out. tried rinse agents and vinegar and nothing worked. Found lemi-shine at WalMart (it's next to the dishwasher detergent) and the white stuff is gone! no more residue and glasses sparkle again. I was ready to buy a new dishwasher I was so frustrated. get some - it's amazing! a couple bucks and it's back to normal. I was SOOOO happy!

Whte residue left on glassware and dishes


use a dishwashing cleaning agent in the machine. or some thing the has a grease cutting agent.run this on an empty cycle.
there are times residue grease and oils can accumulate down in the sump area where the water sits and can cause film on the dishes.
this could also be some lime or scale build up for that you can use some C.L.R or any kind of lime and scale remover to clean your machine.
make sure tht that this is done on an empty dishwasher

Funky smell and a fim reamin on dishes after


You can clean your dishwasher with either a product called "Dishwasher Magic" or white vinegar. Both are basically food safe acids in low concentrations, and will dissolve the hard water scale that builds up in dishwashers. You also should make sure you use rinse agent "Jet Dry" all the time unless you have a water softener.

Dishes will not rinse, white residue, using rinse agent


Look inside and see if all the water is gone at the end of a cycle - none standing in the bottom of the washer in the sump.

Dishes come out with white stuff all over them


Dishwashing detergents have recently been re formulated and sulfates were removed. This has caused the dishes to no rinse properly in areas with hard water. The solution is too add a rinse agent containing citric acid. I got some today from our local appliance store and the dishes came out perfect!

Dishes and inside the washer are not drying


Make sure that the drain hose is connected as per manufacturer instructions, and that there isn't a direct run down from the sink u-bend to the machine. The rinse agent effects dishes dry but has nothing with the water remaining in the machine. Good luck!
