Dishwasher leaving dirty dishes

Hey there,

i've had this dishwasher for about 7 or 8 years and its always been great. but recently, its just doing a really crappy job at washing the dishes. its leaving food on them, everything is cloudy with soap residue. i don't see a bunch of food on the bottom of the dishwasher or anything, and i can't figure out how to get the spinning things apart to see if they need cleaned. we have hard water, so i'm thinking that some of the sprayer holes could be plugged or something. suggestions? i've thought about running a load or 2 with vinegar in the soap holders.

thanks!
dana

Buy a couple of bottles of dishwasher majic, run those through and make sure you are not using too much soap.

Do you have hard water? Many states have passed laws that outlawed phosphate as an ingredient in dishwasher detergent. If you have hard water, the detergents don't work very well anymore. The residue is probably hard water deposits (calcium and magnesium). Not harmful but it looks awful on your dishes. There are some new products that were designed to solve this exact problem. They are inexpensive and effective. Can't say the name or I'll get banned (again). Internet search will uncover it.

if the soap/detergent isn't completely rinsing out of dispenser, it sounds like water isn't directed the top spray-arm. possible a defective vario motor; as it directs water to the water channel that supplies water to the middle and upper spray arms.

Just bought a Bosch dishwasher and we were told that they have no heating mechanism to dry the dishes, which is why they are more energy efficient.  You are supposed to leave the door closed for at least one hour after the cycle is complete.  The heat that has built up inside during the wash cycle will dry the dishes.  It is also recommended to always use JetDry. If you follow this advice, the dishes will come out fine.
