The problem is not the dishwasher but the water that actually is going into it. the white, powder substance is because of hard water. there is a affordable product out there called the dishwasher filtration system. it will filter the water going into your dishwasher and solve the problem once and for all!!! it is affordable and easy to install. www.dishwasherfilter.com

If you live in a hard water area the 5 in 1 tablets will only work half way. Consider Calgon powder or the tablets which can be left in the dishwasher cutlery basket as an additional measure. Hard water areas are notorious for leaving chalky residue on cutlery regardless of 3 in 1/5 in 1 tablet promises. 
Also your dishwasher will require rinse aid too as most machines need this to mix in with the general water and soap solutions when the dishwasher is on its final rinse.

A couple of times I've found that the dishwasher tablet I'm using (Finish) hasn't dissolved correctly. I found it in the cutlery box the last time. I've been putting it on the 65 degree...


I am guessing you are using the Centigrade temperature scale ... which would be 149 degrees F. 149 is way hot in terms of regular house hold use. Probably just right for a dish washer.

I would expect most tablet detergent would disolve properly at this temperature and with proper water pressure in the machine. You should have plenty of both in this machine. May I suggest you give liquid dish washer detergent a try to see the results?

My new dishwasher leaves a white residue on my pots. pans and stainless flatware. I have not changed soap. Could the water not be hot enough?


Check the incoming water quality. If water is hard and having calcium content this could happen. Use water softeners in the inlet water to the machine.

If dish washer salt compartment available fill with the special salt meant for dish washers.

Check rinse aid compartment and fill rinse aid. Or use two in one soap tablet.

Bottom thing is not turning... suds is running


YOU ARE USING WRONG DETERGENT IF YOU HAVE SUDS TO THAT EXTREME, OR DETERGENT LEFT ON ONE OF THE DISHES. CAN'T SAY THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN ANY SUDS IN A DISHWASHER THAT USED DETERGENT MADE FOR A DISH WASHER. THE SPRAY ARM WILL NOT TURN AS THE IMPELLER CANNOT PUMP AIR (SOAP BUBBLES).

Chalky residue left on dishes


hi,
The chalky residue would have formed due to the washing liquid or powder used. According to my experience, I am happy with "Amway -Dishwasher liquid".Please try it for washing your dishes. It leaves no residues and even cleans your dishwasher. On continuous usage, you may find the difference. Overall, it cleans your dishes as well as washer simultaneously. Though its a bit expensive, it is worth buying it.
please search in "ebay" for your country to get the product. Please rate my solution as helpful. Regards, Venu.
