Almost all the time it's hard water or you are out of rinse aid. I have went to some homes with that problem and I find out their water softener quit working or out of salt. Other then that check the rinse aid. Basically dishwashers are pretty stupid machines, they just splash water around and can't really "cause" spotting and things. I'm almost sure that's it. Good luck

It is definately your hard water but you do not need a whole house water softener. www.dishwasherfilter.com has a new product out for this problem. it filters only the water entering your dishwasher and will leave your dishes looking amazing. it is like 70 bucks and has a money back guarantee as well. you will love this product

White film/residue left on dishes


This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. Dishwasher Magic is a good choice. works great.

White film inside the dishwasher and on dishes


Usa a liquid detergent and rinse agent. Make sure your water is above 120 degrees. If you are a hard water area, use a detergent containing a water softener.

Dishwasher leaves film, smelly water


You need to use something with citric acid too try and clean out the calcium deposits inside dishwasher, you can get cleaner at the store or run a can of frozen orange juice thru it or a small bottle of apple cider vinegar. Do this with no dishes inside.

Poor/Uneven Wash Quality


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.
