SOURCE: Top dishes don't come clean

Dear friend,
ngfam at you service! happy to assist!


Go into the user manual and read how to properly load your dishes to get the maximum cleaning potential!
there are certain ways to load the dishwasher that allows the spry to hit all the dishes.
Second check the bottom of the dishwasher if there are food particles left on the bottom at the end of the wash!
They can be the problem if they are recirculating back onto the dishes and then drying on them when the dry cycle goes on!
Third, They sell for about 5 to 8 dollars a small box of dishwasher
cleaner that you ad and run with no dishes in it 2 times a year!
And last, there may be a problem withe the drain or pump that its not pumping out all the wash water!
If this is the case you need service to check it out before some one in your family gets violently ill..!

We sell appliances for 65 years and I recommend this nation wide Factory repair service to all my retail customers!!

Call A&E Factory Service /They service nation wide
And are available 24/7 for making appointments!

If the appliance is 10 years old or more,it may make sense not to invest any money to fix it!

Happy to assist you,
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!

Make sure not to prewash your dishes before you put them in the machine. The water needs to be dirty to activate the enzymes in the detergent. Are the dishes coming out cloudy? Also a sign of prewashing your dishes. Use only powder detergent and clean your machine by running 2 cups of vinegar on hottest cycle once a month. No gel and no tabs. They cause a build up in the unit and causes poor performance. Use rinse aid. Hope this helps.

Popular Science or Mechanical Ill. recently suggested to take the drain cover at the bottom of the unit off and use a shop vacum to clean and clear out the sludge and accumulation in that section it may **** up and solve the problem,at least it is worth a try.

Milky water when rinsing in dishwasher & gritty covering on dishes


I have spent many years (47) in the catering industry using catering dishwashers, under counter models, corner- wash stations and also conveyer machines..

The milky water is a by-product of the wash water and rinse water mixing.

The spray are has to rotate freely or the dishes won't wash or rinse properly. They spins a lot faster than you realise and this adds pressure to the water, but also a pulsating effect to remove dirt.

Over doing the salt can cause more problems that it solves. The gritty film may indeed BE salt. I actually prefer Calgon as a softener.

My advice is to remove both top and bottom spray arms. Check the slots/holes for obstruction, and run water through them under a tap, outside to inside (the opposite to how it is in the machine) rocking the arms up and down to allow any obstructions to flush out. Lemon pips and toothpicks are out biggest problem! Put the arms back and make sure they spin freely. Sometimes they just lock up for no apparent reason!

Use CLR descaler in the machine to clean it using the instructions on the bottle. Then run the dishwasher using the recommended doses of detergent and rinse aid.

Keeps leaving dishes gritty after wash.... Have cleaned everything possible


Do you live in a region with hard water? Most detergents don't work very well with hard water because phosphate is now outlawed as an ingredient in dishwasher detergent. Weird but true. Here's a map to show the water hardness in the US.

Dishes come out feeling gritty. Using Finish doesn't help


If you open the door immediately after the dishes are washed, and before the "dry" cycle, is the water hot enough to have "steam" coming out of the machine?
You should be able to feel the heat.
If not, perhaps the water is not getting hot enough to dissolve the dishwashing powder.
Could you try using a liquid soap once and see what happens?
Be blessed.

My dishes come out with a gritty sand all over them.


If you live in an area with hard water, the grit is probably hard water deposits. Dishwasher detergents no longer contain phosphate, so the detergents often leave behind hard water deposits on your dishes. There is a great solution at www.cloudydishes.com

The dishes have a gritty residue on them after the wash cycle is complete.


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter.

My dishwasher tablet ends up on the floor of the dishwasher at the end and the dishes are gritty


Kay - Cloudy or gritty dishes are due to hard water deposits. Starting in summer 2010, many states have passed laws that prohibit phosphates in dishwasher detergent. The phosphates were good at removing hard water deposits. After the law changed, detergents don't work very well anymore. So I created a product that solves the problem. It's all-natural, contains no phosphate, and it works great! It's a powder. You add 1-2 tablespoons to each wash cycle and you use a lot less of your normal detergent. So your cost per wash does not increase. See my website at www.CitriClean.net

When wash dishes, there is gritty like food on all the dishes and we use liquid for cleaning dishes. I rinse all dishes before I place in unit.....what is the problem?


There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.The water temperature should be minimum of 140 degree Fahrenheit.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher for any debris accumulation.

If you are in an hard water zone , then try reducing the amount of detergent used and then try cleaning the dishes.
