Oil is milky colored on my kingcraft pressure


Milky-looking oil is a sign of water mixed-in with the oil. This is often a sign of severe engine damage (cracked block, cracked head) in a water-cooled engine. (i.e., one having internal water jackets such as a car engine). On a pressure washer it is sometimes an indication that the owner used the pressure washer on itself, i.e., so as to clean the pressure washer with the pressure washer - very bad idea. If this is the case, then the pressure washer is most likely ruined. In any case the milky-looking oil is a sign that the oil has become contaminated with water, and probably a lot of water. I would drain the oil completely and replace the oil filter too if it has one, then refill the crankcase with new oil. Then try using it again for 10 or 15 minutes or so, then reinspect the oil. If it's milky-looking again then I'd set it out at the curb on trash day.

There is a film like residue on dishes after complete cycle has ran. I use cascade tablets and also have refilled the jet dry. It is on all dishes but the glasses and clear plastic show it the most.

After a complete cycle now have a milky residue


The milky residue on the glasses is not a residue at all: it is irreversible damage to the glass and is caused by a myriad of microscopic cracks in the glass surface combined with surface etching. Vinegar only works if there's a limescale deposit caused by using too little salt (no salt at all, or the salt dispenser set too low, or just not adding supplementary salt in a hard water area when using dishwasher powders with an in-built salt function)

It can happen to most glassware, but will happen very quickly to lead crystal which is why every single dishwasher I've ever sold or rented out says not to put them in the dishwasher. So called "glass protection" dishwasher powders are a marketing gimmick; all they do is to try and eliminate chlorides from the mix and boost the salt content, but they won't actually stop the damage completely.

Similarly, most advise against putting silverware in the dishwasher. By silverware I specifically mean anything made of silver, plated with silver or electroplated nickel silver (EPNS). Stainless steel is fine though. You might like to read this short article on the subject.

Dishes havin milky film


The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com. They have a new product out that solves this problem once and for all. It filters the water entering your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that cause these spots. Very affordable and guaranteed to leave your dishes looking amazing every time.

Milky residue and a dry salt pot after each wash


It sounds as if there is a blockage in the salt matrix / inlet. This can happen if the wrong type of salt is used.
The simple answer is to use the expensive tablets/pods - that include salt. This will improve the wash and hopefully the blockage will free eventually.
Fill the salt container with water regularly to try and help dissolve it - no salt untill it's clear.

If it doesn't clear within a month - it may need stripping and clearing manually - or continue with the premium tablets untill something else breaks - requiring a service.

Dishwasher gas started leaving water spots on glasses.


I had exactly the problem you describe in my < year old water-conserving LG dishwasher. What I found was that (to conserve $$) I had bought ultra-cheap, generic detergent powder.

As soon as I switched back to a brand name detergent powder (Electrosol or Cascade) my problem gone.

Try that and post back here if this does not solve your problem. OK?

Good Luck!

Dishes have cloudy film on them


Try this. I want you to run your dishwasher empty, on the hottest water setting. Let it fill and just before it starts the wash cycle put in three cups of white vinegar. I expect your jets are clogged and the vinegar should hopefully open the jets back up. You don't need to add soap during this cleaning process. Works just like when you clean your coffee maker.

Milky liquid residue on washed dishes


This sounds like hard water spots.  Use Jet Dri or a similar product to reduce it. Use the recommended amount of detergent.
