Depending on hardness of your water you will only need 1 teaspoon of soap in dispenser 1 teaspoon for prewash. Your water temp needs to be 140 or more. Run the hot water at the sink till its hot before starting wash. Dont forget to use jet dry....
Use a good quality powder detergent. Check your incoming water temperature, 120 degrees plus. Use a rinse aid such as Jet Dry. Start the DW without soap and no dishes. Once it starts the wash cycle pour in 1 quart of WHITE vinegar and let it finish the full wash cycle. Then load up with dishes and powder detergent and run a load.
Hi. Run your hottest and longest cycle with no soap, no dishes and 2 cups of white vinegar. Also, run the hot water into the sink before starting the dishwasher. Once the sink water is as hot as it gets, then push the start on the dishwasher. J.
Mkae sure you are running kitchen hot water faucet before starting dish washer. If not you are getting mostly a cold water wash thru out the cycle. Also make sure the jet dry dispenser is full. Always use the liquid jet dry as the small cubes you can get do not work nearly as well.
the unit is over sudzing cut back on soap and dont clean dishes and then put them in dishwasher.dont use to much of the soap with jet dry. regular soap without jet dry in it then add and fill jet dry compartment
some of the soaps out there are tempurture sensitive, several different ingrediants waiting on different temps during differnet times of the cycle,
I have seen this before or at least something similar,
does the soap your using now have the jet dry as part of it
if yes id go back to jet dry, your rinse cycle is not hot enough to fully disolve the jet dry in the soap, it gels and coaleses every where.
its designed to do that, so it will not just be washed down the drain on the wash cyle with the rest of the soap.....
Try this. I want you to run your dishwasher empty, on the hottest water setting. Let it fill and just before it starts the wash cycle put in three cups of white vinegar. I expect your jets are clogged and the vinegar should hopefully open the jets back up. You don't need to add soap during this cleaning process. Works just like when you clean your coffee maker.
Rodney B if you are sure that the white film is detergent and not hard water deposits, then look at how you are using the detergent. When you watch the TV ads for dw detergents, they are showing baked on/extemely dirty dishes being put in the dishwasher and coming out clean. Well they do this as the dw detergent is designed to break down protein based food products. Fats, oils, and such. If you are prewashing your dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, then there is nothing for the detergent to attack and attach to, so it ends up staying in the dishwasher. If you are going to rinse your dishes, then you need only 1 tablespoon of detergent. Dishwashers are designed to clean using 4 parameters, hot water of 130 degrees, water, detergent,& pressure of the water jets. That is how they clean dishes. Now if this is hard water deposits, switching to an enviromently friendly detergent which is high is Citric Acid (What gives Tang drink its tartness) this will reduce this issue. Hope this helps
