Couple of things to check:

Is your garbage disposal plugged? Most dishwasher discharges are into the Disposal, need to run ti occassionally to insue it does not get plugged up.

Next, I would run some hot water for a while (5-10 minutesthrough the disposal with it off, in case some grease has built up.

Then, try the dishwasher again. If that does not work, may be a problem in the dishwasher, post a new request for help with feedback on the above.

Dishwasher won't drain completely. Several inches of standing water left after last cycle


Sounds like the wash/drain selector valve might be stuck. my Kenmore operating solenoid rusted and hung up. I cleaned and oiled it up. You can also have something that got into the valve and it won't close, or an obstruction in the drain hose or the drain pipe connector. Something is restricting the flow or the pump itself may have a bad impeller. Does it wash with vigor or has it lost a little oomph and sound different? Does it leave any debris on the dishes?

Glasses are milky... inside door panel has begun to have "dry" streaks. All other dishes are clean, including silver . I make sure that the supply of Jet Dry is full.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Water flow problems are what cause streaks, silt or cloudy dishes. The water flow problems can be caused by several things:
1. Clogged spray arm holes (Clean wash arms upper and lower)

2. Sump inlets that are blocked with debris or plastic (Clean inlets)

Most probable cause.... follows:
3. POOR DRAIN FUNCTION ( a. Inspect all parts of the drain going backward from the sink connection
1) The sink connection is usually at the side of garbage disposal. Remove the hose from the actual sink connection and clean out the port.
2) The AIR-GAP is the where 75% of the drain restrictions manifest. Lift off the Air-Gap cover then unscrew the inner cap nut NOTING the installed position of the inner cap because you can only install it ONE WAY. Lift off the cap and remove an debris inside. Use a flashlight and inspect for any debris deep inside the Air Gap,
3) Inspect the Drain hose from the Air Gap to the Dishwasher drain hose connection for any kinks or folds. If you note wither a kink or a fold take a stick over the outside of the hose like you were putting on a splint.
4) Remove the drain hose from the dishwasher connection and inspect for debris. Clean as necessary. Just note there is power under the dishwasher that can reach out and grab you so make sure the power is off before working under the dishwasher.

5) Re-assemble the dishwasher drain system

4. If after doing all of the above you sill have the streaks you will have to remove the lower wash arm and support to inspect / clean out any debris. DO NOT remove the motor and pump mounting screws. Only the lower wash arm support. Also as soon as you loosen the lower wash arm, note how it goes back together.... these can be a real difficult puzzle!

I note you are using Jet Dry. (Good)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Cloudy film left on all dishes and glasses. How do I remove the film?


Buy a gallon of white vinegar and rewash your dishes this time add 1/4 of a gallon of vinegar in the water with no soap just vinegar and water.... Also check and see if the dishwasher is completely draining you may have another problem that the dishwasher is not completely draining and you are washing with dirty water...... check the screen in the bottom of the dishwasher and the spray arm to see if they are clean and open...... I have used vinegar in my dishwasher and it has taken the cloudy film off... You may have to add it a couple of more times if you have a real bad build up......
I also use cascade complete dishwashing soap and has helped the problem with the cloudy film.

Clear glass dishes are cloudy. What is causing it? We have checked the arms--they seem to be working fine. Some days it does better than others--today they were extremely cloudy. I washed the glasses by...


You can determine the cause of cloudy glassware by soaking a glass in vinegar for 5 minutes. If the cloudiness is removed it is due to hard water deposits; make sure the salt reservoir is topped up. Do not worry about over-filling it.
If the cloudiness is not removed, it is a permanent condition known as etching. In this situation, use less detergent and stop pre-washing. Dishwashing detergent needs a bit of soil to work on, otherwise it will tend to foam up.

Water does not drain out completely on our model GU1500 Whirlpool Gold dishwasher. This happens about every 4th time we run it. Water is cloudy and about 2" deep in bottom after cycle ends.


there is a PROBLEM with the pump.it is most likely clogged,in which case,it must be removed and cleaned.the pump might also be faulty,and so must be replaced.

the problem is not your dishwasher but your water actually. hard water is the reason for the cloudiness. www.dishwasherfilter.com makes a filter just for this problem. it fits right under the sink and is guaranteed to work. it is very affordable and you will be amazed how your dishes come out after the very first load.

Siemans dishwasher not draining


the water in the bottem of the machine under the mesh filter is normal. it acts as a lubricant for both motor impeller and drain propeller. if its greasy then try using only 1 tablespoon of powder soap from now on. now if the water level is ever above the mesh filter after a complete cycle, then you have a drain problem
