If the glasses are old or the softener has been allowed to run out of salt a few times the glasses have become etched. When hard water has soap added, the hot water and soap precipitates some of the hardness (limestone - what cement is made from) into particles and the dishwasher shoots this around in the dishwasher and "sandblasts" everything. Once the glass is etched you have to replace it. In future, a. never run out of salt. b. wash good glassware, crystal and fine china by hand.

Beko dishwasher not cleaning


Do you live in an area with hard water? Here's a link to a map of the US. If you live in a red, orange, or yellow area, you probably have hard water. You can replace some of your detergent with a small amount of water softner.

Tip

Remove hard water stains from inside dish washer


one of the biggest problems with dishwashers, is the insides of it get covered with rust colored stains usually from the hardness of the water in your area.

the stains build up slowly from the water evaporating during the drying cycle, leaving mineral deposits on the interior of the unit.

By luck, I tripped upon a easy solution, thanks to one of my kids.

It seems she wanted to help out,and instead of putting dish washing soap in before starting the load, she put TANG breakfast drink in the dispensers.the citric acid seems to be the ingredient doing the trick.

Unbelievable, but true, the tang removed ALL of my staining, in one run.



give it a try, you'll be amazed.

TANG is a registered trademark of kraft foods.

Frigidaire d. w. grit and white film on glasses


Good Morning Friend,

I see that you are receiving grit and a white film on your glasses, in your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB1050REC. Here are some common solutions that you can begin with.

-Check your water hardness. Hard water can cause lime deposit buildup on the interior of the dishwasher. Dishes and glasses may also get spots and film for a number of reasons. To remove buildup, spots and film, clean using the following instructions:
1. Load clean dishes and glasses in a normal manner. Do not load any metal utensils or silverware.
2. Do not add detergent.
3. Select the NORMAL WASH cycle. Close and latch door. Press START/CANCEL pad.
4. Allow your dishwasher to run until it starts the second water fill (approximately 10 minutes).
5. Unlatch and open the door, and pour 2 cups of white vinegar into the bottom of dishwasher.
6. Close and latch the door and allow the cycle to finish.
For extremely hard water, it may be necessary to install a water softener.

-Your water temperature may be low. Avoid extremely low or high temperatures.

-Avoid overloading and improper loading.

-Make sure you are using fresh detergent. Old detergent is ineffective.

-Make sure your rinse aid dispenser is filled.

-Check to see that the proper amount of detergent is being used for cycle selected.

-Your home water pressure may be too low-it should be 20 to 120 pounds per square inch (psi).

If none of these suggestions helps, I would suggest contacting either the manufacturer or a local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

Why my glasses has spot


you may have hard water, you may not have a water softner. to compensate for this you have to

use a rinse agent in addition to the dishwashing powder, there should be a cap or screw in cap

next to the area where you put in your dishwashing powder. this is where the rinse agent goes.

just put enough to fill. it should be good for several washes, check often this will insure, no spots

on your kitchen ware. good luck!

This is a 3 yr old dishwasher with very gentle use. It now is not cleaning glasses....even when rinsed before hand the glasses are still stained and spotted. Also my silverware needs to be completely...


Hard water stains are easily taken care of with the help of vinegar. Add 1/4 vinegar to the cycle when you start it and it will help to remove spots and cloudiness.
As for food residue you might check your filters and water pressure.

Grit on the dishes. Foggy glasses. Blue type stain on the stainless flatware and the stainless inside of the dishwasher is very cloudy and streaked. Many areas inside the dishwasher feel gritty.

Glass and cups coming out with a milky stain on them, no shine at all.


Rub a little vinegar on the surface of an affected item. Does the stain vanish? If so then you have limescale deposits caused by no salt in the machine.

No salt can be an empty dispenser, a faulty dispenser, or using dishwasher tablets/powder without additional supplementary salt in a hard water area. it can also be caused by having the salt dispensing control set too low (on many models it's a lever located adjacent to the dispenser lid).

How much salt should you use in a refill of a dishwasher in a hard water area


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Water hardness is measured in either European °E (clarks) or in the German °dH ( Deutsche Härte) you will find this on all Bosch Dishwashers here is the comparisons for the two.

If your water is Very Extremley hard then you will need to program your Bosch dishwasher using the Code
H:06 to give you maximum protection here is a comparison table for the codes and the Clark and Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Deutsche Härte with the standard Bosch codes.

I suggest that you use Calgon Dishwasher ( Sodium Carbonate formula Na2CO3.) tablets in the dishwasher every week this is a brand-named water softner that is essential to be used in areas of hard water which causes calcification and catastrophic failure. Use both the salt and the Calgon to suit your hardness.

If you live in a soft water area then set code H:01 as the extra is not required and only use Calgon tablets once a week use normal salt or tablet for the other washes.

Hope this helps

My glasses look cloudy. I have used Tang and it


This sounds like mineral deposits. If you don't have one you could have a water softner installed, if you have one already I'd check its salt level or for proper operation. One question to ask yourself is how well do others soaps and such foam up, if little you have hard water. In my opinion Jet Dry and such may assist some but in the end do not remove all of hard water issues. You may have to take your glasses out of the dishwasher beflore the drying cycle and hand dry. In speaking for my household my wife will not allow some of her better glasses into the dishwasher because of this very reason. All of those are hand washed and dried.... we even have a water softnter too.
I hope this might have helped,
Tom
