Hi,welcome to FixYa.

Based on two things you mentioned ( replaced filter because the old one was badly plugged & new one starting to have similar issues ) leads me to wonder, does the unit heat the water.

I ask because if it does not, the detergent will never disolve properly, hence clogging up the sump, filters and everything else with un-disolved detergent.

Does the normal wash generally take 2hrs or more to complete ?

This would also explain the dishes not cleaning very well...or at all.

If you can answer any of these questions I`ve brought up and confirm the model number, I can assist you in solving this issue once and for all.

I`ll watch for your reply.

Food always gets stuck in the water spray holes pluging them up. It needs a better food filter system. We have a GLD4500N


As recommended most of the dishwashers are not equipped with this filter. But it is always recommended to clear the food off the dish/plates, wash off or wipe and put it for cleaning. The dish washer cleaning is entirely the degreasing/ sterilising of the vessels.
Hence the tip to get your dish washer in good shape is to wipe/wash off the food and load it to the trays inside.
This is my suggestion as we cannot improvise the machine. I hope this helps Good day

My glasses are net getting clean, this just started to happen. What can the problem be?


The most common reason for dishes (especially glasses) not getting clean is the dishwasher's heating element has failed.

When the heating element does not turn on when it should, the water is not heated enough to activate the dishwasher detergent.

Also, if you have recently started to use a new box of DW detergent powder, if you bought the cheap kind, that could cause problems, but normally that leaves white marks on the glasses, not a dirty film.

587 Doesn't work well


AS ABOVE SUGESTION ...PROBUBLY NOT GETTING ENOUGH WATER. NOT LIKELY THE FAULT OF THE DISHWASHER PROBUBLY SEDIMENT FROM THE WATER PLUGED THE INLET SCREEN OF THE FILL VALVE. MANY TIMES THE MOVING OF A FLEXIBLE PLUMBING LINE BRAKES LOOSE ANY SEDIMENT AND DEPOSIT DURING THE INSTALATION OF A NEW DISHWASHER WHICH IS WHY MOST ADVISE REPACING THIS SMALL FLEXIBLE LINE WHEN INSTALLING A NEW DISHWASHER. YOU WILL HAVE TO DIS ASSEMBLE VALVE TO CLEAN SCREEN ...IF YOU BOUGHT THE PROTECTION AGREEMENT OR HAD SEARS INSTALL IT THEY SHOULD COVER A SERVICE CALL TO CLEAN THE VALVE.

Dirty dishwasher


there is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. it actually filters the water going into your dishes. the dishes look dirty because your water has a lot of calcium and magnesium in it making them appear cloudy or dirty. the dishwasher filter reduces those minerals and my dishes look perfect now. no more dirty and grimy looking dishes. i also dont waste time washing them by hand before and after the dishwasher. hahaha you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. use code DFMTEN and you will get 10% off. it fits right under your sink and is very affordable. you will be glad you bought this product. thanks
