Dishwasher leaves taste on glasses

Glasses appear clean. Drinking water initially tastes OK but after 5-10 minutes a strong taste has dissolved from the glass into the water. This cannot be tasted with flavoured drinks and does not seem to happen if you use mugs to drink water from. What is adhering to the glass and how can we prevent it happening?

Must the water supply be hot water or can one connect cold water

most dishwashers use hot water to obtain a clean finish for the utensils
You could use cold water but I think that any grease would not be dissolved properly from off the plates leaving plates and glasses with streaks and a greasy feeling

I would run a couple (or more) cycles using TSP (tri-sodium phosphate), it's safe to use with dishes. That should cut the grease and make glasses sparkle.

Cycle timer displays very different times for cycle, cleaning is not particularly good. Problems related? glasses appear filmy, even when rinse agent is used.

your dishwasher uses an optical sensor to constantly monitor the water turbidity or cleanliness if it detects the water is cloudy it will extend the wash time and vice versa there are several reasons for cloudy glasses check to see if they taste salty,or if the cloudiness washes off,this usually happens when the baskets are loaded badly and the detergents/temps are not set correctly.

Dishwasher not cleaning properly and everything tastes like soap


To start with reduce the amount of detergent you are using. 2 teaspoons of detergent is enough for any wash.

Probably blocked spray arms is the cause of the unit not cleaning properly. Remove each spray arm (there are 3 in total) and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results. The bottom spray arm is the easiest and just pulls out the other two in the middle and the top you have to unscrew like a childs lock on a tablet bottle. Push up from underneath and unscrew each arm.

Hope this helps.

Too much salt

Don't know about this model, but if the salt pickup is inline with the water the water may not be flowing in fast enough and the reduced pressure may be letting the salt in. Anyway, final rinse should remove the salt. Try putting two clean glasses (no salt taste) in the unit, one upright and the other down. Run the unit with no soap and stop it after each cycle and check the glasses for salt. If you still have it after each cycle, try filling the unit from the sink manually before the final rinse. If salt's still present, something's leaking
