Why do dishes have tiny specks after washing.


This is common. Make sure the air gap is clear. The spray arm is not clogged. Some dishwasher just don't flush all the food particles out. Try a high quality detergent.

My dishwasher is leaving hard specks all over the dishes after they are washed. I tried cleaning out the spinners but that didn't work.


Hi





If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.



If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes.



Hope this helps...

After you load up your dishwasher check that the top arm spins freely. Something might be stopping it. eg Big plates like I have. I can only put them on the sides.
As for the white parts , hard to tell without a picture.

Hi just read your posting.Now you mentioned that the specks are not lint.In my service manual it states that if you use fabric softener then this can build up in the bowl and leave black flakes on the clothes.Try filling machine on a hot wash and pour into bowl 1 or 2 cups of automatic dish washing power and leave the machine to soak overnight.In the morning restart cycle and let it go all the way throe.Please reply on how this worked and for further advice.Looking forward to your reply.

Small lines or specks on the right side of every page


Did you try cleaning the lense? You'll have to pull all the toners and open the little door below and wipe with a clean lint free cloth in ONE direction.
