Hi, I'm not sure what the white sticky film would be, maybe from a mixture of dust and condensation or something that has been sprayed in the room such as a air freshener that will be draw back through this evaporator coil on the return side? You say that the pan has little water that you can see anyway, but for a mist to be coming out, the fan is picking up enough water to throw it back at you, so this tells me there has to be more water then maybe you can see. Please check to see if it is draining good to the out side area from either the weep holes as we call them or a poly drain line. Check to see if you have a foam type return air filter in front of the indoor evaporator coil as this may be causing the sticky film if it is old. Check the coil to see how clean or dirty it may be. There will be a way to remove the section to expose the coil and filter in front. The blades of the blower/condenser fan motor are dipping down enough to pick up water that is puddled up some where in the pan of the unit, or the coil is dirty and not letting the moisture run off fast enough to run out and the fan is blowing this condensation right on through. They make a coil cleaner, but its sold at wholesale a/c houses, but you can try a cleaner like 409 and clean it up good and also do a good rinse after this. See if this unit has a drain at the bottom of the coil and make sure it is good and clean. This should solve this problem. Please keep me posted on this and please rate me as I know you will be kind to me. I will check back later today to see how it is doing for you.

Try rubbing peanut butter on it. It works great on glass jar labels so it might work for plastic as well.

Cloudy film left on all dishes and glasses. How do I remove the film?

Buy a gallon of white vinegar and rewash your dishes this time add 1/4 of a gallon of vinegar in the water with no soap just vinegar and water.... Also check and see if the dishwasher is completely draining you may have another problem that the dishwasher is not completely draining and you are washing with dirty water...... check the screen in the bottom of the dishwasher and the spray arm to see if they are clean and open...... I have used vinegar in my dishwasher and it has taken the cloudy film off... You may have to add it a couple of more times if you have a real bad build up......
I also use cascade complete dishwashing soap and has helped the problem with the cloudy film.

White film on glasses and plates; I have cleaned tubes and nothing is blocking. is it possible that it is too much calcium/deposits; or a ring/gasket in the bottom sprayer that pre vents the water form...

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.
Hope this helps... Please post back if more information is required.

White film on glasses. Cannot find solution,

Check water quality. clean the drain filter in the machine. Check spray arm spray jet holes. Clean if clogged.

If you suspect salt chamber try removing all the salt by flushing with water externally. Refill with fresh salt.

The dishwasher doesn't clean properly

Lots of possibilities...

1. the sprayer arm might be sticking and not moving, or moving very little. Check to see if you can spin it by hand. Listen when the machine is running and you should hear the sound of the spray changing as it rotates. Check for items that might be jamming the arm like silverware, cups, jar labels, etc.

2. the little holes in the sprayer arms could be clogged. Need to remove the arms and clean them.

3. If it has a spray arm in the top rack, check to see that the piping for that is not broken or missing any pieces.

4. Any filter screens inside the plumbing could be clogged. This would slow down the spray and result in the dishes not getting rinsed properly. Check the inside of the machine for any foreign objects (see #3 above).

5. The machine might not be emptying between portions of the cycle. After the wash cycle, see if it is draining by either checking for water coming out of the drain hose or by opening the machine before it should start filling up for the rinse cycle.

6. Machine could be overloaded. Or loaded with extremely dirty dishes. Or with foods that are hard to clean like grits or oatmeal.

7. The machine could be improperly loaded. Bowls or platters blocking the spray. Tall objects like glasses and jars should not be loaded into the corners of the racks. The corners do no get a lot of spray and tall items can end up dirty.

White film 0n dishes and especially glasses

It is a drain problem, check the drain hose and drain pump.There should be some problem with the drain being blocked that is eventually pushing the dirt water back and front.Thereby leaving detergent and dirt back in the dishwasher.
Provide me the model number and i can help you out with some internal diagrams in case you don't find the drain pump.
Good luck and please do post for further doubts arising on this solution.

6 month old GE dishwasher now leaves heavy film on dishes...

As far as using the vinegar, this should be complete when there is NOTHING in the dishwasher. The idea is to remove the build up inside, not clean the dishes. Make sure to use only White Vinegar. Also, changes in the water of any kind can cause a build-up. Try using a little less detergeant and rinse.
