Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Cutlery is cloudy and dirty, some food is dried onto knives and forks. Cups and glasses are cloudy and not clean on inside. Coffee or tea stains are not removed. Plates and soup bowls seem OK , and water is draining properly. We have tried with less soap, more soap, gels, tablets and powders but to no avail. The dishwasher does not clean dishes etc, as as it once did. There doesn't appear to be any problem with the 'cycle'. The machine is about nine or ten years old, and has run fine until very recently. We can find no way of 'cleaning' filters or removing impellers to check for gunk build up. The Model # is MDB6000AWW Serial # 17590140UY Thank you for any suggestions you can provide

    My dishwasher is leaving a white film on the plates and silverware. I've tried different rinse aides and detergents, but it isn't helping. The water is hot and the bottom sprayer is definitely working. I can't tell if the top one is or not. It's only 4 years old. It doesn't seem to leave any film on the dishes that are placed on the top rack.

Don't know much about Dishwashers but have you tried a descaler.
Is the water spraying out as normal.
Is the water actually getting hot, could be a heater element problem.

If you look here you may get some other ideas just by looking at the parts and diagrams. Copy the whole link and paste in to your browsers address bar.

How can I get the coffee stains out of my fine bone china pot?


Repeated coffee drinking in fine bone china can cause staining that doesn't come out with the regular gentle washing. To get these stains out you need to mix baking soda with some water until you create a paste. Spread the paste onto the cups until the stains have disappeared. Then rinse them out with soap and water.

What kind of cutting board is the best?


I think plastic is the best. Wood harbors bacteria, glass ruins your knives. Plastic ones can be cleaned well and they even can go in the dishwasher.

Why is my tea cloudy?


The scientific reason for the cloudiness of tea is the precipitation of the tannins in the tea that occurs when the tea is cooled. Cloudiness does not affect the flavor of the tea.
  1. Stronger brews tend to cloud more readily than weaker ones.
  2. High quality teas cloud faster than others.
  3. Hard water also has a clouding affect on tea

    Add a small amount (1/4 cup) of boiling water into the brewed tea to help reduce the amount of cloudiness.

Built in machine - top shelf only - cups tea-stained, dried on particles of food


Check 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.

I have a Bosch automatic dishwasher,SHU43C05UC/17. Usually I love it; but recently my glasses are coming out cloudy and the tea stain remains on my cups. I have used two different dishwasher cleaners...


If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1/4 of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

Glasses dirty looking and cloudy after wash cycle.


If there is not enough water, the dishes will not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

Also, There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

**Water temperature Note***

To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

Concerning the Film, or cloudy look after the wash cycle.

This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there, Try Dishwasher Magic.

Paints and stains


GF Salad Bowl Finish

Create a beautiful and safe finish on wooden bowls, cups, spoons, countertops and butcher blocks or any wood surface that contacts food. Easy to apply (just wipe on with a soft clean cloth) it achieves the sheen and durability of a varnish. Dried film is non-toxic for food contact 72 hours after drying. Additional coats can be re-applied at any time if maintenance of item becomes necessary
On Line store: generalfinishes.com
I don't know about paints, but there are stains, such as raw linseed oil, that work just fine for food-safe surfaces.
suggest you do some exploring; plug in'food-safe stains "in your search engine.
Hope this helps...
