Yes there have been some issues with these stuff in dishwashers without flood protection. If you want to use them you will have to get a anti-flood attachment for your washer. So its up to you to decide..

Hi!

Please run the machine without detergent for 2-3 washes. Also try using a little hot water. Also, don't used cleaner and softener together but add softener on the last rinse.

SOURCE: the dishwasher tablet is still visible

my recomendation is to check to see if your water temp is high enough, and switch to a liquid detergent like Finish or Electrosol

White Film On Dishes In Dishwasher


<b> <u><i>Phosphate-Free Dishwasher Detergents May Cause White Film</i></u><br /> <i></i> <br /> <p>Notice a white film or residue on your dishes, glassware, plastic items,<br /> <p>utensils and tub interior.<br /> <p>The problem is likely not the dishwasher's cleaning performance, but may be hard water<br /> <p>or phosphate-free detergents.<br /> <p>As of July 1, 2010 seventeen States* passed laws limiting the amount of phosphorous<br /> <p>(phosphates) in household dishwasher detergents to no more than 0.5 percent.<br /> <p>Previous detergents contained up to 8.7 percent. As a result, major manufacturers have<br /> <p>reformulated their dishwasher cleaning products.<br /> <p> Phosphates are mineral additives in detergents that act as the main cleaning agent helping<br /> <p>remove stains, break down grease and reduce spotting.<br /> <p>During washing, phosphates suspend food particles so they don't stick to dishes.

Whirlpool gold dishwasher will turn on but not clean dishes


If it looks like the water is circulating then it's possible that soap build up can cause cleaning problems. Try taking a cereal bowl and filling it with an 8 oz bottle of apple cider vinegar (you want apple cider for the citric acid and you want to put in a bowl because the 1st thing a dishwasher does is drain) then put the bowl on the lower rack and wash nothing but the bowl of vinegar. We have found that the new non phosphate soap is also causing problems we have found that Finish tablets work very well and since they are pre-packaged then there is no risk of too much soap causing problems. If that doesn't help then it's possible that the motor is not turning the spray arm at a high enough speed to circulate the water. Hope this helps.

Dishes are not getting clean, detergent just runs down the door used tablets they worked until lately. The door would open but the tablet would not disolve. Now I use liquid but it just runs down the door...


Quickest way to ruin a good dishwasher is to use tablets. They have times when they don't brake down in the water like they were designed. Chance are that you used the tablets with the thin film package, this thin film gets caught in the pump and shut down water circulation. Have a qualified tech pull motor assembly apart for you and clean.
