I had this problem twice with my Bosch and both times required different fixes but they both worked.
1. I got this one out of the manual. Make SURE that you push the upper rack totally back. There is a connection back there that fits into a fitting on the back of the rack and pushes the water through the upper arm.
2. I had taken off the extra rack that attaches to the back of the lower rack. Then I put it back on wrong. It should not have the prongs appearing behind the rack.
Both of these situations caused cloudy/dirty dishes. Also, because of the lack of water, it clogged up the filters. Remove the filters and clean them well. Then make sure you have neither of these issues going on. My dishwasher returned to great washing.

You can experiment with different tablets/powders and check that the salt and rinse aid dispensers are correctly adjusted, but all dishwashers eventually cause glass to go cloudy and although it's a gradual process there's a point at which it suddenly seems to become noticeable. Any lead crystal glass will cloud very quickly indeed so must be handwashed if you want to avoid this. The cloudiness in glass is irreversible as it's caused by millions of microscopic cracks in the glass surface. Some crockery items are glazed with a process which can also turn cloudy over time in a dishwasher, white plates won't really show it but coloured ones do (especially blue and red). There are some tablets/powders which claim to have a glass protection additive, but this just slows down the process. The best way to slow the process is to wash at the lowest temperature you can.
Try cleaning the machine by adding white vinegar to the wash water (before the water-fill procedure finishes). Put your stained dishes and cutlery in with the wash to remove the hard water deposits. The combination of salt and rinse aid may have helped cause this problem. Hope this helps!
You can determine the cause of cloudy glassware by soaking a glass in vinegar for 5 minutes. If the cloudiness is removed it is due to hard water deposits; make sure the salt reservoir is topped up. Do not worry about over-filling it.
If the cloudiness is not removed, it is a permanent condition known as etching. In this situation, use less detergent and stop pre-washing. Dishwashing detergent needs a bit of soil to work on, otherwise it will tend to foam up.
your dishwasher uses an optical sensor to constantly monitor the water turbidity or cleanliness if it detects the water is cloudy it will extend the wash time and vice versa there are several reasons for cloudy glasses check to see if they taste salty,or if the cloudiness washes off,this usually happens when the baskets are loaded badly and the detergents/temps are not set correctly.
Don't know about this model, but if the salt pickup is inline with the water the water may not be flowing in fast enough and the reduced pressure may be letting the salt in. Anyway, final rinse should remove the salt. Try putting two clean glasses (no salt taste) in the unit, one upright and the other down. Run the unit with no soap and stop it after each cycle and check the glasses for salt. If you still have it after each cycle, try filling the unit from the sink manually before the final rinse. If salt's still present, something's leaking
