Whirlpool gold dishwasher leaves film on dishes

My whirlpool gold dishwasher started leaving a heavy white film on our dishes. I have tried re-running the dishes through the dishwasher, even without any detergent and the film still remains. Even after hand washing the dishes the film is difficult to remove. What can I do to resolve this?

    White film left on glassware and many items not cleaned well. This just began after 4 years with no previous problem. Extra rinse cycle and putting 2 cups of white vinegar into the washer seemed to help, but problem keeps returning.

    Dishes on both top & bottom come out with whitish film. Glasses have spots & white film.

    the inside of the dishwasher is still wet and the cutlery is soaked even though the heat setting is on. rinse aid is full but it hasn't moved in at least a month

The problem is hard water i bet. there is a new product out that actually filters the water going into your dishwasher. this i think is awesome becasue who knows whats in the water cleaning the dishes you eat and drink with. my dishes use to be white and spotty and after the first load with the filter they came out spotless. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. you will be glad you did. oh it goes under the sink and is small and affordable.

Are you in a hard water area such as florida ? do you have a water softener? if so take a can of frozen concentrate orange juice and put the frozen hunk in the bottom of dishwasher and run for one cycle. the citric acid will dissolve undisolved soap . this works much better. than vinegar which will only remain through the first cycle and then drain out as for the already grey glasses wash them in a solution of equal amounts red wine vinegar and water with just a touch of dish soap using a sponge.

Leaves a white soapy film on pots, pans and dishes


Are you overloading your dishwasher? Are you loading the dishes in such a way to cover the water shooting up from the blades? Have you run your dishwasher a few times with no dishes in it, adding straight white vinegar to clean it out? How old is your dishwasher?

Our dishwasher doesn't seem to be getting the dishes clean anymore and leaves a residue. We have changed detergents and all that, but to no avail. Is there a filter or something that needs to be cleaned...

Whirlpool gold dishwasher is leaving a white milky film on the dishes. My old maytag cleaned fine, so water temp and pressure is not an issue.


Water is the issue.
Replace the water supply valve under the sink and water supply line to dishwasher.
Over time as you can see minerals deposit in the valve and restrict the water flow to the dishwasher.
This is especially inportant on todays water saving units.
Many people replace an old dishwasher and hate the new unit due to a white film left on dishes.

Although you may have paid for a professional installation a new shut off valve is almost never replaced even though the waterline may have been at an additional cost to you..
