There is a new product out that actually filters the water going into your dishwasher. My dishes came out amazing after the first load. No more cloudy glasses. I was very impressed. Who knows whats in the water cleaning your dishes so i thought this filter was great. It is very affordable and you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. Hope this helps some people.

Although I previously posted with the same problem of a film on the dishes after cleaning, I did find a section in the owner's manual which solved my problem. Lift up the rinse aid cap on the inside door - the factory setting is on "4". The rinse aid works in conjunction with your local water, which has variations in it's hardness or softness. When your dishes are streaky, lower the rinse aid setting to 1 or 2. If your dishes are spotted, raise the rinse aid setting higher.

SOURCE: dishwasher leave debris on dishes

there is no filter except the screen in the water inlet valve to keep big pieces of grit in the water from defecting the inlet valve..
i dont know exactly why but it sounds like your unit was not installed with a recommended air gap in the drain or something similar and somehow dirty sink/drain/sewer water is making its way back into the unit and onto your dishes.
often times there is a little rubber check valve/flapper in the drain line either installed in the pump or the drain hose just after the pump to keep foreign material from entering the unit..
other than that it would just be mineral and calcium deposits if you are on well water or chunky city water..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

Dishes have a powdery residue


If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

Also, There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

**Water temperature Note***

To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

NOTE(((excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher can cause this as well. I recommend cleaning the inside of the unit with a dishwasher cleaner called Dishwasher Magic. its good stuff and it will get rid of that calcium build up)))

It is not cleaning dishes, it leaves food residue on dishes and deposits small bits to other dishes especially on glasses.

Jenn-air JDB-2100aws dishwasher not drying properly


1. If you do not use Jet-dry liquid in detergent dispenser left side compartment, the drying result for dishes will be very poor.
2. You should check the heating element for continuity(conections for heating element under bottom panel of d/w).
