No error message and is washing fine but it is rusting all my pots and pans and my cutlery also all my glasses are coming out all cloudy the dishwaser has also always asking for salt we have put in 3 bags...


Hi, I am only a housewife but salt is a corrosive. At home depo, menards, or lowes you can get a dishwasher cleaning kit. Use that to clean your dishwasher. Next because of new state and national laws soaps had to have a change in the chemical make up to have less sulfate or something like that. My glasses were cloudy all the time. I cleaned my dishwasher and now I
only put in dawn dish soap. I don't have to use anything else. My dishes come out clean and spotless. Now you may have to do a little more cleaning on your dishes before you put them in
because your not using regular dishwasher soap but I don't have those spots. Also I put about
a fourth teaspoon of the liquid soap in the 1st cycle soap dish and another fourth teaspoon in the 2nd cycle. You may have to experiment as to the amount you need becasue of how hard your
water is. If you put too much in soap suds will come out during the wash cycles. Hope is works

We have a Bosch SHU3307UC dishwasher. Two friends swear by theirs, saying they put everything in dirty and the load always comes out clean. That does not at all work for us. My wife has to just about wash...


Put dirty stuff in will eventually keep a tech like me very busy. We love to come and charge you alot for cleaning your dishwasher. Remember the Maytag commercials where they put a cake in it? Still got the dishes clean but before long it will cost you big time. Just run everything under the tap. Pot and pans should be lightly washed also. Watch how you place the dishes. Most dishwashers spray up from the bottom. Block it, and the spray will not reach the top.

I have a greasy buildup on my dishwasher filter.


It is the grease left on dishes or pots & pans. It can be cleaned off using a good regular dishwashing detergent like Dawn in the sink, not in the dishwasher. To prevent it, scrape the dishes & pots better, and if possible, turn the temperature of the hot water up a few degrees. You should also change dishwasher detergents to a liquid, with a built in water softener.

Haier Stainless SteelDishwasher HDP18PA not washing dishes


The heater probably isn't coming on, making it so the detergent can't dissolve completely or clean very well.

To test this, pause the unit about 10 minutes into the wash cycle (hit the stop/start button) and feel the water in the bottom. It should be hot, not lukewarm.

Also, if the heater isn't working, you won't see as much steam come out when you open the door at the end of the cycle.

Until you get it fixed, try using the pots/pans cycle (I use it for every load with this machine).

Greasy bottom in dishwasher


Hi there, you can get a product that has extra cleaning power designed for dishwashers to clean stubborn grease and calcium deposits. It works great and also clean up the waste hose and pump and valves in the machine. If the door seal is covering the grease in the front corner, you may have to clean it yourself as theat places it outside the washer.
