    Our year old Ge Diswasher is now not getting tea stains off cups. It did a fine job until about 2 months ago. I have always used Cascade liquid, which was suggested to be used when I purchjased it. The water seems to be hot enough. What do you suggest?

You may have debris clogging the suction for the wash motor. With a model number, I could tell you how.

Not rinsing glasses clean

If the glasses are spotty from hard water try a rinse aid like Jet Dry. If they are actually dirty, depending on the brand of DW you may need to rinse them better before putting them in the DW. Not all brands are cerated equally, some do work better then others

Dishwasher doesnt spray the dishes and it no longer drains

It sounds like your jet sprays are clogged. Try a couple of things. Lets start by cleaning the unit with beach and white vinegar. Use a cup of each with not dishes inside. Do not heat dry, ever. Next use a liquid jet cleaner. You should notice a difference doing this. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

The key is to not use the dishwasher as a garbage grinder.

I suggest that you witness the volume of water being discharged from the machine. If low volume, look inside for plugged screens.

Also, be sure to remove all food particles from the sprayer tips, which is not an easy task, get each and every piece, run machine and check again. then quit putting dirty plates in the machine, quick rinse = seriously better cleaning, and less unit maintenance.

Hi there, always rinse the dishes immediately after use before putting them in the dishwasher. Also make sure they are not too tightly stacked, as this prevents proper cleaning.

Glassware and dishes getting water spots lately.

I think your dish washer is starting to go out. We have a Kenmore dish washer (unsure if the model is the same), it started with not cleaning the dishes well to not sanitizing and now it doesnt dry. We are actually replacing ours today. We we noticed that it wasnt cleaning properly (water spots, or not rinsing well) we too added Jet Dry thinking that that would solve it. We soon discovered that it didnt help at all. Hope this helps you.

Doesnt dry dishes

The heater on this unit only comes on twice, once in the wash cycle, and again in the Sanitary rinse. During the drying cycle all that happens is a vent opens and a fan comes on. The fan removes the hot moist air from the unit and the dishes dry off. If your water is not hot enough, this is why your dishes are still wet. Rinse aid also helps to sheen off the excess water as well.

Bosch dishwasher

Although I previously posted with the same problem of a film on the dishes after cleaning, I did find a section in the owner's manual which solved my problem. Lift up the rinse aid cap on the inside door - the factory setting is on "4". The rinse aid works in conjunction with your local water, which has variations in it's hardness or softness. When your dishes are streaky, lower the rinse aid setting to 1 or 2. If your dishes are spotted, raise the rinse aid setting higher.
