Even after a wash-a white detergent residue is left.


I have a Whirlpool Gold dishwasher and had the same trouble. I found the solution. Fill the detergent dispenser to the top with Cascade Complete liquid gel - it is in a green bottle, then put a half a cup of white vinegar in the bottom of the tub before you start the dishwasher. I have tried them all and Cascade Complete Gel works best. Don't use powder. It really builds-up on my dishes and only the gel keeps the film off my dishes.

I also add Jet Dry in the rinse-aid dispenser but I have a friend who use vinegar in that too. The dishes come out sparkling clean with no film or white build-up. If they still are filmy after three washes using this method, then you may have some build-up in the dishwasher and you can put a cup or two of white vinegar in the bottom - with no detergent or dishes and wash and rinse well. That helps get rid of build-up.

Hello,
Welcome to fixya,

You said, you have a whirlpool quiet partner dishwasher that is not getting even light food residue off the dishes. Cycles seem to be running and progressing normally, tho you do not think the water is spraying from the arms with adequate force.


I have the same machine.
And I notice if I leave the dishes in the sink rather than rinsing them off and putting them directly into the dishwasher, (Like My Wife says to do). That sometimes I have the same problem.
So I bought Jet Dry, and filled the holder. It's a small sometimes clear plastic knob that unscrews out above the soap dish.Fill it once a month!
Do you put the detergent in both cups or only the closed one?
1. If the load is not real dirty you should only have to fill the one with the door that closes.
If it is real dirty then both. To always use both is a waste of money!
2. If your hot water heater is far from your dishwasher, let the hot water tap run a minute till it comes out hot, before starting the dishwasher.
3.If the dishes or pans are very dirty and or baked on use hi temp scower and heavy or potscruber for those loads.

I use heavy wash and hot temp scower if the stuff is relly messy or dryed on.
And for baked on HI- temp scower and pot scruber which sprays harder.

You will have to experiment a little to see what works for you.
You will find it washeing good after you find what works for your families dish habits!

If you have any more questions let me know!!!

Please remember to leave me a solved before you leave the site.
Thank You for using us!
