Any Rinse-Aid product should work. We have domestic water at my house and it is a bit on the hard side. Will notice a difference when the Rinse-Aid is empty. You may check to see if it working on your unit. If it is extremely hard you may consider a water softening system.

Glasses covered with a film. i add salt when light comes on-it seems quite frequent.


This is a common problem with hard water.

Preheat the water by running the hot water in the sink before starting dishwasher, The hot water works better. Make sure that the water heater is set to proper temperature. Avoid doing dishes right after showers etc.

Add additional detergent. Additional detergent compensates for the hard water. We use to have phosphate in the soap to compensate for the hard water. Now we use twice as much water, energy for hot water. and soap and get lousy results.

26151997-5qhlk13cfml2v0s4x2rfbva1-5-0.jpg Check the output of your water softener. There may be an additional treatment available to compensate the water used in the dishwasher. Usually late winter the water is at its worst for hardness.

Hope this helps?

Frigidaire d. w. grit and white film on glasses


Good Morning Friend,

I see that you are receiving grit and a white film on your glasses, in your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB1050REC. Here are some common solutions that you can begin with.

-Check your water hardness. Hard water can cause lime deposit buildup on the interior of the dishwasher. Dishes and glasses may also get spots and film for a number of reasons. To remove buildup, spots and film, clean using the following instructions:
1. Load clean dishes and glasses in a normal manner. Do not load any metal utensils or silverware.
2. Do not add detergent.
3. Select the NORMAL WASH cycle. Close and latch door. Press START/CANCEL pad.
4. Allow your dishwasher to run until it starts the second water fill (approximately 10 minutes).
5. Unlatch and open the door, and pour 2 cups of white vinegar into the bottom of dishwasher.
6. Close and latch the door and allow the cycle to finish.
For extremely hard water, it may be necessary to install a water softener.

-Your water temperature may be low. Avoid extremely low or high temperatures.

-Avoid overloading and improper loading.

-Make sure you are using fresh detergent. Old detergent is ineffective.

-Make sure your rinse aid dispenser is filled.

-Check to see that the proper amount of detergent is being used for cycle selected.

-Your home water pressure may be too low-it should be 20 to 120 pounds per square inch (psi).

If none of these suggestions helps, I would suggest contacting either the manufacturer or a local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

Dishes on both levels are left with a cloudy film that requires them to be hand washed. Can you tell me why?


Could be too much rinse agent. Most dishwashers have an adjustment on the dispenser. Set it to the lowest setting while still preventing water spotting. If you use the tablets, you may be getting a double dose of rinse agent, as the tablet have rinse agent built in, plus the dispenser will add the normal amount = 2 x required amount.
Another thing is the phosphate levels of detergent. With zero phosphates allowed now, you see more of this. Try a product called "Lemi shine" made by envirocon. It is a citric acid based powder. Add about 1/3 to 1/2 Lemi Shine, the remainder the regular amount of POWDERED dishwasher detergent.

Spots on dishes


It depends on the kind of spots.
Hard water spots are just the result of minerals that were left behind when the water evaporated.
Food spots can be the result of food that was allowed to dry before putting the dishes in the dishwasher.
In general, a water softener can be quite helpful in reducing hard water spots, and can also help the dishwasher perform better.
Note too that recent changes in the formulation of dishwashing products has been a problem for people who do not have water softeners. Government mandates have recently restricted addition of phosphates in dishwashing products in many states. Phosphates were quite beneficial to the dishwashing process.
A water softener may be your best answer.

This is a 3 yr old dishwasher with very gentle use. It now is not cleaning glasses....even when rinsed before hand the glasses are still stained and spotted. Also my silverware needs to be completely...


Hard water stains are easily taken care of with the help of vinegar. Add 1/4 vinegar to the cycle when you start it and it will help to remove spots and cloudiness.
As for food residue you might check your filters and water pressure.

Dish washer 3 1/2 yrs old making a growling/vibrating sound.


The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

LG Dishwasher


I can't say for sure, but it is possible this unit is deeper than previous units. The only way to tell for sure is to measure the previous unit and compare to this one.

I would be suspect there may be something simple preventing the dishwasher from going all the way back into the cavity of the cabinets. Maybe the water line is in the way, the power plug, etc. are in the way. You would have to pull the dishwasher out and look it all over to determine if his comments are true or not.
