Make sure the filter inside the dishwasher is cleaned out and read about my advice for dishwashers for more tips.

When the glassware comes out with a film on them (cloudy) the most common problem is a failed heating element. When it is repaired, the wash water will be heated to the proper temp to activate the dishwasher powder/detergent.
Please report back here what you find. OK?

Probably a blocked spray arm. Remove the top spray arm and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results.
Yes there will also be a filter in the base of the unit to clean. This needs to be done regularly to avoid food getting into the working parts of the unit.

The filter is located at the base of the unit.
Usually it has something to grab onto - just pull it straight up and out.
There may be a stainless steel grating and an inner fine filter to remove as well.
Empty contents into the bin, and clean all of these parts in the sink.
