Chalky dishes in dishwasher

I have a chalk like film on my dishes from the dishwasher. I have used a dishwasher cleaner for the inside of the dishwasher. The heating coil seems to have the same chalky film. The dishwasher is less than two years old.

NEED TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET THE TOWER OFF OF THE BOTTOM TO CHECK OUT THE DRAINING CIRCLE TO SEE IF IT HAS GOTTEN PLUGED WITH SOMETHING. THE SOAP HAS NOT DESOLVED AND THE DISHES ARE NOT CLEAN AFTER THE END OF THE CYLCE.

That normally means that the lower arm is clogged or filter indeed clogged.
Make and model number would be helpful

There is a product on the market called Dishwasher Magic that should help with this problem. It is a citric acid cleaner that will remove most any film from you dishwasher from hard water stains to food stains. Another similar product is called Glisten. Make sure you follow the directions on the bottle. Hope that helps.

Dishes have a chalky white residue after cleaning, especially on aluminum pots. This model was installed a little less than a year ago and the residue started appearing a few weeks ago.

Getting a heavy chalky film on my dishes after cycle. Already filled with Jet Dry.


This could be do to the banning of phosphates in dishwasher soap in some states. Just started using the phosphate free soap and there is a chalky substance on my dishes. This did not happen when I used the soap with the phosphates in.

Chalky dishes in dishwasher


Are you in a location with "hard" water, meaning that the water has alot of minerals in it like calcium? If so, you may may need to get the water treated with a water softener system, either at the dishwasher or for the whole house.

Chalky dishes in dishwasher


the problem is not the dishwasher but the water that actually is going into it. the white, powder substance is because of hard water. there is a affordable product out there called the dishwasher filtration system. it will filter the water going into your dishwasher and solve the problem once and for all!!! it is affordable and easy to install. www.dishwasherfilter.com
