Why when I turn the hot taps on I get milky water out of the hot taps and its a new HWS Vulcan 250 lit electric single element only 3 months old


Put that water in a glass and let it sit for a couple of hours. If it clears up, it is air bubbles. The old unit most likely had mineral deposits on the elements and they insulated the water from micro heating that creates the bubble. Since the unit is new, the water is in direct contact with the heating elements and micro bubbles are forming on the elements. When you turn the hot water on, the turbulence washes the bubbles out.

Hi, I have a question


Hello Kiran - Often cloudy water is caused because the water was not purged. Try purging the water lines by running water through the filter for a total of 3 minutes. This can be done either in one big bucket or in various cups. If the water remains cloudy, then I highly suggest verifying that the filter is in good conditions with no cracks or damages. If the filter is working, then I recommend checking your tap water. If these troubleshooting steps prove ineffective, you may wish to contact a professional as the unit may possibly have an issue within the refrigerator lines.

Our Maytag MDB9100AWB is 5 years old. Have had repairman out several times. Problem is a light cloudy scum on everything. He has replaced several items, has had us clean parts and fixtures, etc and even...


There are three typical causes of chronic cloudiness on glassware/dishes.
  1. The incoming water may be too hot. Make sure the water is at or below 140 degrees F.
  2. Test to see if cloudiness is removable by hand cleaning or soaking for 5 minutes in white vinegar. If it is removable, it's due to hard water. Use a good quality detergent, and match the amount of detergent used to the water hardness and use a rinse aid. (Some low quality detergents clean poorly and leave a film.)
  3. Glassware may be etched, due to too much detergent, too high water temperature, or pre-washing. Etching is not reversible, so it's important to correct the problem promptly.
Hopefully these hints will help you to home in on the problem.

After installing a grohe faucet my water is cloudy most of the time. The cold water will eventually clear up after it runs awhile, the hot water, hardly. I never had cloudy water before installing the new...


It air bubbles in the water giving the appearance of cloudy.
It would seem that the aerator in the new faucet is particularly efficient.

If you take a glass of "cloudy" water and let it stand for a few mins, you should find it clears up nicely as the air slowly bleeds out through the top.

Glasses and others things are not getting clean in the upper rack. A white film remains on the glass and stains are not removed. Also I'm having trouble with the silverware showing rust spots and not...


If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is toadd some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1 cup of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.
Other things to try: CLR on the spray nozzles to loosen up cloggs.Check the filters to be sure they are clear.

Last three loads have not cleaned my glasses - cloudy and lipstick still on them. Using JetDry and Cascade powder. What can I do to fix this?


You probably have a soap buildup. Try running it without any dishes in it. Let it fill up and start washing a few minutes, the open the door and see if there are suds. If there is, pour a half cup of cooking oil into the water and let it complete the cycle. That will clear the soap buildup. Aside from that, keep using jetdry and make sur the water going into the dishwasher is hot (run kitchen tap until it's hot before starting dishwasher to clear the line)

You can determine the cause of cloudy glassware by soaking a glass in vinegar for 5 minutes. If the cloudiness is removed it is due to hard water deposits; make sure the salt reservoir is topped up. Do not worry about over-filling it.
If the cloudiness is not removed, it is a permanent condition known as etching. In this situation, use less detergent and stop pre-washing. Dishwashing detergent needs a bit of soil to work on, otherwise it will tend to foam up.
