White Film On Dishes In Dishwasher


<b> <u><i>Phosphate-Free Dishwasher Detergents May Cause White Film</i></u><br /> <i></i> <br /> <p>Notice a white film or residue on your dishes, glassware, plastic items,<br /> <p>utensils and tub interior.<br /> <p>The problem is likely not the dishwasher's cleaning performance, but may be hard water<br /> <p>or phosphate-free detergents.<br /> <p>As of July 1, 2010 seventeen States* passed laws limiting the amount of phosphorous<br /> <p>(phosphates) in household dishwasher detergents to no more than 0.5 percent.<br /> <p>Previous detergents contained up to 8.7 percent. As a result, major manufacturers have<br /> <p>reformulated their dishwasher cleaning products.<br /> <p> Phosphates are mineral additives in detergents that act as the main cleaning agent helping<br /> <p>remove stains, break down grease and reduce spotting.<br /> <p>During washing, phosphates suspend food particles so they don't stick to dishes. Plus, they<br /> <p>soften water allowing suds to form for cleaning.<br /> <p>Phosphates have been limited in laundry detergents since 1994. The change in dishwasher<br /> <p>detergents is another step in the eco-conscious awareness found in today's products and<br /> <p>the eco-friendly choices consumers are making. Allowing the water in your sink to run untill its hot before starting your dishwasher helps. Also try switching to one of these brands of detergents <br /> <p>1.

Even after a wash-a white detergent residue is left.


I have a Whirlpool Gold dishwasher and had the same trouble. I found the solution. Fill the detergent dispenser to the top with Cascade Complete liquid gel - it is in a green bottle, then put a half a cup of white vinegar in the bottom of the tub before you start the dishwasher. I have tried them all and Cascade Complete Gel works best. Don't use powder. It really builds-up on my dishes and only the gel keeps the film off my dishes.

I also add Jet Dry in the rinse-aid dispenser but I have a friend who use vinegar in that too. The dishes come out sparkling clean with no film or white build-up. If they still are filmy after three washes using this method, then you may have some build-up in the dishwasher and you can put a cup or two of white vinegar in the bottom - with no detergent or dishes and wash and rinse well. That helps get rid of build-up.

Food is staying on the dishes..cheese, bread dough etc.


eggs, cheese, dough are not going to be removed from the dishes by the dishwasher especially if you are using gel type detergents. these need to be removed before they go into the dishwasher. Try a higher end detergent in powder or tablet form. Some of these detergents Cascade Complete have more agressive food disolving agents. They also cost 2 times as much as everything else. Save the money rinse your dishes.

Quit using the new Cascade. The formula change is what is causing the problem. No research from Cascade before releasing the product
