Question about Miele Dishwashers

1 Answer

There is a white film on some items, such as black microwave utensils and, I suspect, white china. There has been a spot or two of rust on stainless part of utensils. I've had this dishwasher 8 years with no problems; I went in search of the "salt" mentioned in instructions and haven't found it. HELP!

Sounds like the plastic on the trays have worn or broken down with age, the rust on them spreads to you cutlery

How do remove rust spots from stainless steel Yahoo Answers

Yes, stainless will rust. The above link has helpful information on how to treat rust spots on stainless. The web site suggests using a mild acid, such as oxalic acid, which can be purchased at Home Depot or Lowes. Use a green scrub pad, as recommended. Hope this helps....

Tip

Using stainless steel utensils in a microwave oven


Every one knows that one cannot use metal utensils/bowls in a microwave oven.
But did you know that this does not apply to a utensil/bowl made out of stainless steel?
Try it this way.
Put some water in a stainless steel container and place it in the microwave for 5 seconds.The water will heat up without any sparks being created.
One could actually heat up anything in this way without any danger of causing a fire.

Frigidaire d. w. grit and white film on glasses


Good Morning Friend,

I see that you are receiving grit and a white film on your glasses, in your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB1050REC. Here are some common solutions that you can begin with.

-Check your water hardness. Hard water can cause lime deposit buildup on the interior of the dishwasher. Dishes and glasses may also get spots and film for a number of reasons. To remove buildup, spots and film, clean using the following instructions:
1. Load clean dishes and glasses in a normal manner. Do not load any metal utensils or silverware.
2. Do not add detergent.
3. Select the NORMAL WASH cycle. Close and latch door. Press START/CANCEL pad.
4. Allow your dishwasher to run until it starts the second water fill (approximately 10 minutes).
5. Unlatch and open the door, and pour 2 cups of white vinegar into the bottom of dishwasher.
6. Close and latch the door and allow the cycle to finish.
For extremely hard water, it may be necessary to install a water softener.

-Your water temperature may be low. Avoid extremely low or high temperatures.

-Avoid overloading and improper loading.

-Make sure you are using fresh detergent. Old detergent is ineffective.

-Make sure your rinse aid dispenser is filled.

-Check to see that the proper amount of detergent is being used for cycle selected.

-Your home water pressure may be too low-it should be 20 to 120 pounds per square inch (psi).

If none of these suggestions helps, I would suggest contacting either the manufacturer or a local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

The microwave oven coating is peeling and exposing rust spots. what can I do to fix this? Do I need a professional repair person?


No this is something you can repair yourself. Take sandpaper and gently rub rust spots until smooth. Then you need to get ceramic touch-up paint and repaint rust spots.

White film especially on ziploc containers and utensils. Glasses come out spotted and clear glass dishes are streaked with a white film


Hi


White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle.

Please post back if more information is required.
