Usually food particles blocking outer nozzles of spray arms. Remove them and rinse out. All particles must be removed. Very tredious job!

My dishwasher is about 4-1/2 years old. Lately I am getting a film on my dishes especially glasses. I use Finish rinse agent. Is there something I can do?


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.

You should be able to get several more years out of it with a good maintenance call or a Do It Yourself routine on checking your water inlet valve. spray arms, internal filters.

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

GE Profile Dishwasher (5 years old); Leaving residue on dishes


In my case the counter mounted breather for the drain tube was being restricted ... finally to the point it would not drain the tub at all. I disassembled the above counter drain assembly and cleaned it out as it wass completely blocked and things work very well again. I would suggest this foirst as it is an easy task and is done 'above the counter'.
I then ran 2 cups of CLR with wash cycle ... no dishes to clean out the rest of the washer as on dissaembly of the internals to diagnose they were and very scummed up with a hard white crusty substance that was completely blocking some of the drain sump performations.

Try a different detergent such as the electrosol tablets. Also might add vinegar to an empty cycle to clean dishwasher, or with dishes.

Dishwasher leaves film, smelly water


You need to use something with citric acid too try and clean out the calcium deposits inside dishwasher, you can get cleaner at the store or run a can of frozen orange juice thru it or a small bottle of apple cider vinegar. Do this with no dishes inside.

Dishes are not coming out fully clean


first if the pump is running and you can hear it washing it should clean now hot water cleans dishes not the washer the hotter the better at least 130-135 degrees modern dish washers use less water than older models so if you don't get the water as hot as you can stand it at the sink before you turn the washer on you can fill it with cold water second its important that you use jet dry and if your dishes aren't dry at the end of the cycle then on most washers you can turn the disp up for more hope that helps let me know
