Question about Dishwashers

White film on dishes, glasses and silverware.

Our recently-installed Maytag dishwasher is leaving a white film on our dishes, glasses and silverware. We never had that problem with the old unit. We are using Cascade brand detergent, which is what we've always used. We have Jet Dry liquid rinse agent in the unit. The unit has steam-clean capability but we've only used that once or twice. Any idea on what are we doing wrong?

White film is actually from the calcium and magnesium found in hard water. your dishwasher is fine. its the water leaving the residue and spots. go to www.dishwasherfilter.com . they have a new product out exactly for this reason. very affordable and works amazing. you will love it.

White film is generally too much rinse aid. Check to see if your model has adjustable rinse aid dispenser, and if so, set to a lower setting.

Dishwasher leaving a white film on dishes after wash/dry cycle


Well, that usually happens if the water in the area has too much alkali metals, such as calcium and magnesium.
Try putting some salt together with the detergent before you start the cycle.
And if it still does, try washing the finished dishes again with clean water, i mean, without detergent...

Dishes come out with a white, chalky film, not very clean.


are you using palmolive eco liquid detergent? if so - google "palmolive eco white residue" and you will find out that your detergent is the culprit. the solution is to use 1/2 cup of vinegar in your rinse cycle and soap dish and STOP USING PALMOLIVE ECO!
