Residue on dishes

I am having LOTS of trouble with my dishes coming out with residue on them. We have had the dishwasher about five years. I've tried the dishwasher cleaners that you can buy and put in the silverware rack (two of them..one right after the other). These cleaned the inside of the dishwasher, but the dishes were not much cleaner. The residue on my glasses will not come off even with handwashing now. I'm ready to throw them away, but I don't want to put new ones in my dishwasher. I use Jet Dry, and gel Cascade. My water temp is set at 120 degrees. Any suggestions for me?

    My dishwasher is only 3 years old and has been doing the same thing and getting progressively worse. I have cleaned out the dishwasher with Jet Dry and still nothing has changed. I did use less soap, but that has not solved the issue either. Can it be that the machine is not rinsing properly due to clogged spouts in the arm that sprays the water? I have extremely hard water and I think that is the problem as well. Is it worth having it checked out by a technician or just getting a new one. I am so tired of having to rerinse the dishes as I take them out. Too much work!

There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. it filters out the minerals that cause this residue on your dishes. the problem is hard water. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com and it works amazing and is very affordable. you will love this product.

Dishes not clean - residue left on dishes and glasses dishwasher cleaner has been used. unit is 9-10 years old


Hi,

Look on YouTube. Type in dishwasher repair, and you will find a number of tutorials that you will find helpful. It sounds like your soft food disposer needs to be cleaned out. Below the screen in the bottom, there are lots of nooks and crannies that can trap residue and recirculate it.

Best regards, --W/D--
