Question about Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher

There is now a grit left on my dishes

The grit residue started about a month ago. I took the water spin part off then clean out areas around the motor, nothing changed. I use the blue rinse stuff and it is full. Plumbing wise nothing has changed, all conditions are the same.

You could try a product called "glisten" you can purchase it from your local parts distributor and run it thought the machine. It is acidic and will break down calcium deposits in the screens. We sell alot of it and it works well.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Hi,

The scum, film and white residue problems have started since the reduction of phosphates in dishwasher detergents.

Our Asko dishwasher no longer cleans the top shelf of dishes properly. Fine white and black grit is left on the dishes after every wash, and if there is any food residue on the dishes it does not come off....


The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine. If the machine is not fully drained it picks up some of the residue and sprays that onto the dishes during the final rinse, leaving an unhealthy and unsightly film on everything.
Remove the bottom strainers and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

Check also that the arm outlet jets at the trailing end of the arms are not blocked with food particles and other solid matter. This often happens and the arm is unable to turn because the water jet that is supposed to drive the arm does not have the force to rotate it.

Whte residue left on glassware and dishes


use a dishwashing cleaning agent in the machine. or some thing the has a grease cutting agent.run this on an empty cycle.
there are times residue grease and oils can accumulate down in the sump area where the water sits and can cause film on the dishes.
this could also be some lime or scale build up for that you can use some C.L.R or any kind of lime and scale remover to clean your machine.
make sure tht that this is done on an empty dishwasher

Residue and food particles left on dishes in upper rack.


Check the inlet screen at the bottom of the dishwasher that could impede the flow.

Otherwise the pump may be to blame.

The arms do not spin and no water is going through them


Switch to a brand name powder detergent like Electrosol or Cascade. Never use ultracheap, generic DW detergent powder in any dishwasher. Run a load with dirty dishes and see the results are.

If cleaning results remain poor open the sump area by removing the lower spray arm and the filter assembly. Remove all debris in and around the sump area. Inspect the impeller down there to make sure it is not broken and that it spins freely. Clean the filter well in the sink. Reassemble. Also, check all spray arm holes for blockage.
Run a load of dishes and check cleaning results. If problems continue, you almost certainly have a failing wash motor and replacement is your next step.
Post here is you would like more assistance. Good Luck!

Grit like residue after cycle finishes.


I had the same problem and it was fixed by switching dishwasher soap. We always used the same liquid soap for years and when this problem came out of the blue (about 8 months ago) I switched to Cascade action pacs with Dawn. It did the trick! No more residue since then. We now are having a problem with the dishwasher not draining (our unit is 8 years old), but the grit issue has been handled!
