Most dishwashers have a soil separator which separates the soil from the water while it's washing. When a wash cycle is over a valve opens in the separator to allow the soil to go down the drain. If it's not working properly the washer will leave a film or food particles on the dishes.
It's under the lower spray arm. Post your model number and I may can find a diagram for you. Dishwasher- Inside the doorjamb on the top, left or right. On the door edge top left or right. Portable models on the back.

My dishwasher is leaving a white thick film on my dishes.


Check your inlet water quality. If hardness is noticed add salt as per the directions of the manufacturer. Refer user manual.

Check the rinse aid compartment and fill it with rinse aid as recommended by the manufacturer.

Regular cycle no longer cleans well


Thanks for the clarification (we get a lot of people on here that don't know how to really use a dishwasher).

Sounds to me like the DW may need a through going over.

Confirm the make and model of the DW so I can see how it's built. I am suspect that with all the food particles and film you mention, that the spray heads are clogged in the spray bars, and, check that the drain hose is not kinked, and it's attachment into the garbage disposal is clear. I've had these clog before, limiting the ability of the DW to get rid of the dirty water.

Dish washer not filling


I had the same problem. It was a clogged water inlet valve. Packed with sediment. Accessible from the bottom if you have the right tools. Just clean out and replace. Or the valve could be bad.

Our less than 1 year old Whirlpool dishwasher model DU1145XTPQA is taking as much as 2 and 3/4 hrs. to complete the entire dishwashing (normal)cycle. This is much longer than it used to take.


Contact Whirlpool service immediately to get a service call scheduled before the warranty expires.
Most dishwashers that begin taking longer to complete the cycle have a failed heating element but that also normally means that the dishes do not get fully clean and the glassware has a film on it after the cycle ends.
Good Luck!

My tablet won't dissolve.


Sounds to me like the dishwasher isn't filling up with cold water. I had a similar problem a few months ago, caused by limescale blocking the inlet and drain valves. Might be worth trying some kettle limescale cleaner solution and putting it inside the machine - and leaving it overnight then trying the machine out with no dishes etc in it.
