GE Profile dishwasher doesn't clean!


If you have "powdery film" it sounds like hard water deposits to me. Many states have outlawed phosphate as an ingredient in dishwasher detergents, so the detergents don't work as well anymore if you live in a region with hard water. New product designed for this very problem. "Greenest" product ever...it's all-natural and comes shipped to you in a re-claimed water bottle!

My dishes come out with a powdery coating on them and cutlery is not always clean. I use cascade and jet dry but this still does not help. Whyis this happening?


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. Make sure that your soap dispenser drawer is opening and closing fine.
Hope this helps... Please post back if more information is required.

White powdery film is on dishes at end of cycle.


Too much detergent. the amount of detergent should vary with the amound of soil left on the dishes. Most users will pre wash their dishes in the sink, but still use the full recommended amount of detergent. There is no soil for the detergent to bind with, so it builds up in the pipework of your dishwasher. when the water evaporates during the drying cycle, the detergent residue is left behind on your dishes. Run a cycle or two with your dishwasher empty. add a cup of white vinegar to each cycle, but dont add any more detergent. After that, cut your detergent amount by half, and see if your issues go away. if not, please post the model and manufacturer of your dishwasher.

The dishes are coming out all cloudy and seem to have a film on them. It is a powdery substance that will not wash off even by hand. It is ruining my dishes. It doesn't matter what soap I use.


Be sure to use a good quality detergent or tablet with rinse aid built in... but before that I would go buy a dishwasher cleaning solution. These are usually in a bottle and you just sit the bottle in the dishwasher by itself (with no other dishes) and run a normal washing cycle. The cleaner will clean the inside of the dishwasher, including the drain area and help produce cleaner dishes thereafter. This should be done every 3-4 months as standard.
