You may not have to get a new dishwasher just yet. When I see things like this, the most common problem I find is clogged jets in the spray arms. Try removing the spray arms and clearing any debris from the holes. I hope this helps.

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.

I have the same problem with mine!! It's 6 years old, and I'm running loads of dishes through twice. Even that doesn't help! And I rinse the dishes too, so I have no idea where all these "crumbs" are coming from. Will check back for updates. Hope to get this problem solved!

Etching on the glass ware and the dishes don't come clean.


Dishes may not be getting enough rinse water. Had the same problem before I replaced inlet valve. My fisher packel was 3.5 years old before I replaced the inlet valve due to a knocking noise, but It still ran through cleaning cycle without any alarm codes.

Dishes are no longer cleaned properly. They have a white milky film BUT if hard water is the problem, why were they coming out perfect for the past 8 years?


If the film is only on glass. wash the glass with a citrus cleaner, if they get clean then your glass ware may have been etched by your had water and the detergent from your dishwasher is staying in the etched glass.

If this is not the case, then your dishwasher might not be getting the proper volume of water, witch will decrease the pressure of the wash arm or your spray arm might be dirty.

Kitchen aid dishwasher doesn't clean dishes in the top rack


Sounds like you have 1 of 2 problems. Either your pump is clogged or you need a bigger drain loop.

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
