Check the items are dishwasher proof, not just the items that are becoming tarnished but other items, main culprits ar cheese graters and garlic presses as these are not suitable for the d/w and will cause deposits on the other items.
There are 4 main reasons
1.Stainless items are left in a damp d/w with salt or acidic food residue.
2.Items are peft for long periods of time in a damp d/w after cycle has finished
3. undissolved powder (particularly if using quick wash) has come into contact with the cutlery.
4. different types of metal have come into contact with each other.
Hope this helps.

The door is getting rusty. I believed that stainless steal didn't rust. Is there a way I can remove the spots?


Normally these appliances use brushed steel which gives a stainless steel look.

Get a magnet and run it on the sheet. If it sticks then it definitely is not stainless steel.
However, with wear and tear stainless steel surface does break down causing rust to start.

To remove rust go to this site.

The seal of the dishwasher is broken and the spot welding on the stainless steel strip that holds the seal has pulled away from the tub.


use super glue to glue in place in spots cut away seal near the weld seams, then make sure the door closes ok then get 5 minute epoxy and glue the seal on where it comes off, it's a permanent fix for a old machine but it will work. so go ahead and replace the seal.

Dishwasher does not clean good anymore,leaves dirt film on dishes


check there is a decent water level in the unit, check that the spray arm holes are not blocked, check that the wash pump is spraying water well enough and that the water is heating. the other thing to consider is changing the wash tablets.

How to clean stainless steel


You say your new oven...and DW have stains...I will assume (if that's OK) that you have a stainless steel oven...and are washing stainless steel in the DW...but you are having streaks and or white...spots or deposits...Sounds like hard water...you may try a localized..(just for the DW and kitchen sink area) filtration system...to reduce hardness of water...(is this well water)..if so you definitely need filtration...if you don't already have it.
Here are some issues and or cleaning techniques for stainless steel.

stainless steel is known for its ability to be a clean surface that resists corrosion and rust. Dirt, dust and grime, however, put stainless steel at risk for corrosion and rust. Luckily, stainless steel responds well to cleaning, never wearing out from excessive cleaning, as long as certain rules are followed. 1. Water and a cloth.
Routine cleaning can be accomplished by using warm water and a cloth. This is the least risky option For cleaning stainless steel. Dry with a towel or cloth to prevent water spots. Wipe in the directions of the polish lines.
2. Mild detergent, (dish washing liquid) and cloth.
For cleaning that needs more power, mild detergent and warm water can do a great job without damaging the stainless steel. Make sure you rinse the surface thoroughly to prevent staining and spotting. Towel dry to prevent water spots which can be caused by minerals in water.
3. Glass cleaner for fingerprints.
Fingerprints are one of the biggest complaints about stainless steel, but can be taken care by using glass cleaner or household ammonia. Rinse thoroughly and towel dry. There are some newer types of finishes for stainless steel that resist fingerprints, a must if your pint-sized helpers leave their mark on your stainless steel appliances.
4. stainless steel Cleaner.
If you’ve had staining or scratching, or need to polish your stainless steel, a stainless steel cleaner may be a good option. Some of these cleaners and polishes can help minimize scratching and remove stains. They also can polish stainless steel surfaces nicely. Read the directions on the stainless steel cleaner and test in an inconspicuous spot. Be sure to rinse thoroughly and towel dry.

If this does not help please clarify...with specific model #'s and walk me through (step by step) what the specific problem is and how you address it....Thank you and I hope this helps.............
Good Luck...........The Fang.

Haier Stainless SteelDishwasher HDP18PA not washing dishes


The heater probably isn't coming on, making it so the detergent can't dissolve completely or clean very well.

To test this, pause the unit about 10 minutes into the wash cycle (hit the stop/start button) and feel the water in the bottom. It should be hot, not lukewarm.

Also, if the heater isn't working, you won't see as much steam come out when you open the door at the end of the cycle.

Until you get it fixed, try using the pots/pans cycle (I use it for every load with this machine).

Stainless steel is rusty/blotchy


Jenn Air makes great products, don't blame them. Your type of stainless steel is a consumer grade that has less nickel-chromium in the mix making it affordable to the consumer. The surface needs to be "pacified", DeBruce Polish will REMOVE THE RUST and PACIFY the surface. We get Debruce Polish at debrucepolish.com.
