Must the water supply be hot water or can one connect cold water


most dishwashers use hot water to obtain a clean finish for the utensils
You could use cold water but I think that any grease would not be dissolved properly from off the plates leaving plates and glasses with streaks and a greasy feeling

Check the pump and filter for blockages as the dirty water may be not draining properly. A mix of detergents is ok. Run a prewash with the unit empty and see if the water is still greasy

Before loading into the machine you have to remove food particles. Washer will wash the greasy surface. If particles are left in the dishes, the same will find entry to the drain system. Check the drain filter in your machine. Clean them. Mostly problem will be solved!

LG dishwasher wont clean top rack dishes


Recommend you remove the approximately 10 screws to pull the entire filter and manually clean. Remove all debris you find and thoroughly rinse out the filter if you can separate the top from the bottom. If the sump area is greasy, use a de-greasing spray to cut through it. Resemble, checking that there are no blockages in the holes on the spray arms.
Fill a bowl or cup with white vinegar and place it on the lower rack of the empty dishwasher. Do not add detergent. Run the quick cycle. The inside of the dishwasher should now be clean and not greasy. If still greasy, use the de-greasing spray (avaiable at all stores in the cleaning section.)
For 30 days, use only Electrosol or Cascade powder. Do NOT use gel or tablets, ever. Please report back your results. Good Luck!

Water not hot


Dishwashers are suppose to be hooked up to hot water. If you had hotter water it would clean just fine. 120 deg or more!
