My brand new dishwasher leaves white film

My brand new dishwasher leaves heavy white film on dishes, especially bowls, but not limited to that. My old dishwasher did not do this, even without the rinse agent. Same house, same water. I've tried using less soap and different soap, but the result is the same.

    Tried washing again without heat dry and the white coating is the same. Plates aren't bad, but bowls are a mess. It doesn't matter where I put them in the dishwasher, the result is the same. It was not like this with my old dishwasher that I just got rid of. I've tried less detergent and that didn't matter either I have no clue now since the water is the same as what we had before this new dishwasher was installed.

The new washer is drying the dishes faster that the old one,Try setting it to no heat dry and see if that helps,if so you will need a water softener or filter for the water line to the washer.

Whirlpool gold dishwasher is leaving a white milky film on the dishes. My old maytag cleaned fine, so water temp and pressure is not an issue.


Water is the issue.
Replace the water supply valve under the sink and water supply line to dishwasher.
Over time as you can see minerals deposit in the valve and restrict the water flow to the dishwasher.
This is especially inportant on todays water saving units.
Many people replace an old dishwasher and hate the new unit due to a white film left on dishes.

Although you may have paid for a professional installation a new shut off valve is almost never replaced even though the waterline may have been at an additional cost to you..

I got a layer of white cloudy film on my dishes after normal wash


Doing a full vinegar cleaning of the diswhasher is a good start, and every 6 months or so if you have hard water.
But, I have proven that using ultra-cheap dishwasher powder will cause this problem too. Recommend after you do the cleaining with white vinegar through a quick cycle with no detergent, you use only a brand name powder (like Cascade or Electrosol) and see if problems persist.
If problems remain, the heating element has probably failed. Once it is replaced, you will see a dramatic improvement. Good Luck!
