SOURCE: Dishwasher not cleaning

make sure the screen is clear and not obstructed,also check the wash arms for the same.does the pump sound any different?are you getting enough water in it.when you start a cycle open it up and make sure there is plenty of water,do this a couple of times so you can get a good idea of what should be in there.the drain solenoid may have failed and your losing water.

SOURCE: streaks on glassware/silverware

usually indicative of clogged spray heads, or spray arms not spinning, too much detergent for your water type, wrong detergent, and low water temp.

Link to manual:

Check the manual for amounts of detergent to use based on your water hardness.

SOURCE: dishwasher does not clean dishes and leaves spots on everything!!

The problem is hard water that is leaving the spots. There is a fantastic product out called the dishasher filtration system. It filters the water going into your dishwasher and works amazing. It is very affordable and very easy to install. You can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.

Two problems here. Clean out the filter area in the bottom of the dishwasher. Run a quick wash with a cup of bleach in the dishwasher.
The next problem sounds like the water temperature is too high. Make sure the hot water heater is set around 110 - 120 if you want. The dishes could be "etching" in too hot of water. The quality of the glasses or flat wear may not hold up to dishwasher use. Hope this helps.

This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning your dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner. There are a few out there, I recommend Dishwasher Magic.

First off whoever told you jet dry causes streaks has not been repairing dishwasher like I have for the last 40 years. All I will say is use the Jet Dry even with a water softener. Buy the little hanging mini-basket type ones and replace them as they are consumed.
Water flow problems are what cause streaks. The water flow problems can be caused by several things:
1. Clogged spray arm holes (Clean wash arms)
2. Sump inlets that are blocked with debris or plastic (Clean inlets)
3. POOR DRAIN FUNCTION ( a. Inspect all parts of the drain going backward from the sink connection
1) The sink connection is uaually at the side of garbage disposal. Remove the hose from the sink connection and clean out the port.
2) The AIR-GAP is the where 75% of the drain restrictions mainfest. Lift off the Air-Gap cover then unscrew the inner cap nut NOTING the installed position of the inner cap because you can only install it ONE WAY. Lift off the cap and remove an debris inside. Use a flashlight and inspect for any debris deep inside the Air Gap,
3) Inspect the Drain hose from the Air Gap to the Dishwasher drain hose connection for any kinks or folds. If you note wither a kink or a fold take a stick over the outside of the hose like you were putting on a splint.
4) Remove the drain hose from the dishwasher connection and inspect for debris. Clean as necessary. Just note there is power under the dishwasher that can reach out and grab you so make sure the power is off before working under the dishwasher.

Reassemble everything power it up, use the Jet Dry and let me know how the dishes turn out.

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 to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1/4 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.

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.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa,

Based on your description I`d suspect a plugged wash pump.

The place to start for that is to pull the pump filter, spray arm and check for food deposit, broken glass, undesolved detergent and general water deposit built up in the sump well.

The key is to get in there and clean it all out, I`ve attached a link at the bottom that will show you how to go about it. It is not really referring to the heating issue, or maybe even your model, ( Most Whirlpool, Inglis, Kenmore, Kitchen-Aid, Jenn-Air ) but it is the same procedure.

When you`re finished run it through a test cycle and see how it goes.

Let me know how you make out and what you find.

White spots left on glasses and silverware


The white residue could be water spots from hard water. They are most notably left on clear plastic glasses, clear glasses, and silverware. If your silverware is authentic sterling silver you shouldn't be washing it in the dishwasher anyways as this ruins it.------

The best advice for the hard water is to use jet dry there should be a dispenser for this on your dishwasher. The other solution is to use those oxi clean tablets or the cascade 2 in 1 gel packs. normally,this is caused by hard water. try using a dying agent like jet dry, it will stop the white spots. good luck.--------

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Use a good quality dish washer detergent with dry assist agents and anti spotting agents. You could have hard water also. Same fix though.

Dirty glasses


there is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. it actually filters the water going into your dishes. the dishes look dirty because your water has a lot of calcium and magnesium in it making them appear cloudy or dirty. the dishwasher filter reduces those minerals and my dishes look perfect now. no more dirty and grimy looking dishes. i also dont waste time washing them by hand before and after the dishwasher. hahaha you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. use code DFMTEN and you will get 10% off. it fits right under your sink and is very affordable. you will be glad you bought this product. thanks
