Keep getting a white film on all my dishes, not cleaning properly.


Check the temperature of the water. Should be 120 deg. Also are you using powder or liquid? Liquid dissolved a lot quicker that powder. So liquid is actually better to use. Try running the hot water at the sink until it gets hot before running the dishwasher. Also you may want to try mixing half cascade liquid and half lemon shine.

Hello,
Try running a white vinegar wash. Add 1 cup to the unit and run a normal cycle. Also rinse agent must be used to achieve spotless glass. Water hardness can affect this as well.

Glasses are cloudy and cutlery and dishes are not clean. using cascade with dawn powder. dishwasher is brand new, installed one week ago


Sorry to hear your having problems with your new dishwasher. Please review your owners manual for great tips for the best results on cleaning your dishes. Here are a few steps to take to get your dishwasher working:
  1. Run you sink water for 3 min on hot before you start your dishwasher. This allows warm water to enter the dishwasher and helps aid in sanitizing and cycle time. Remember water entering must be at 125 degrees.
  2. If your using power detergent be sure to use rise aid. All new dishwashers require this additive for best results.
  3. If you have hard water your going to need a dishwasher cleaner and use it once a month. I recommend dishwasher magic. Kills 99.9% bacteria and leave a great scent. I use it myself.

Switch your detergent to Cascade powder. Then use Dishwasher Magic (or something similar) to remove the lime/scale build up and to clean out your pump.

New dishwasher leaving powder residue on dishes.


Quit using the new Cascade. The formula change is what is causing the problem. No research from Cascade before releasing the product

Dishwasher leaves soap in dispenser.


Hi Dirty Dish gang.
After having 2 appliance repairmen here, I now have the latest scoop on our dishwasher problems, $200 later!
Los Angeles IS currently having hard water issues. Also, all the new cleaning gels etc. are actually a cause of our dishwasher problems.  
So, here is what we need to do:
1. Use Cascade POWDER detergent only.  Make sure is is just "plain" no "scented" or "complete"  or gel, etc. (I have tried a phosphate free powder and gel and this is a cause of our problem as well!) 2. Use Jet Dry in the dispenser (set it to a 2-3 opening) 3. Make sure water is at least 120 degrees 4. Only run dishwasher on "normal" setting.  All others just run it longer, hence causing more water stains. 5. Do not pre-wash dishes! You can knock of chunks with a "non" soapy brush, but don't rinse (the oils actually help to clean the dishes) 6.  Do not wash sponges in dishwasher.
Acid Wash: The repairman just gave my washer an Acid Wash today. It says it is an acid derived from lemon, I got mine from Carters appliance in Torrance, CA for about $19. I am to run a normal cycle with the above mentioned Cascade after this "acid cycle" is finished.
If you are still having problems:
Monthly maintenance: Glass Magic: Buy a box of Glass Magic (near the Cascade)  Use 1 Tbsb in main detergent compartment of dishwasher along with the Cascade, till washer starts working again. White Vinegar: You can run an empty dishwasher with white vinegar once a month.  Fill a bowl with 2 cups vinegar and place on bottom rack.  Then run as a normal cycle...this allows vinegar to disperse slowly.
So far it seems to be working.  Good luck.

Soap left in the dish


With the LG LDS5811 dishwasher and other water/energy saving dishwashers, they are VERY ineffective with untra cheap powder detergent. Switching to Electrosol or Cascade has solved the problem -- and don't use too much.
If you add a whole house water softener, you will be AMAZED how much better your dishwasher and clothes washer work -- especially if your cut down on the amount of detergent your use.
Oh, never use gel or tablets in your diswasher. Ever.
if the problem with the detergent dispenser not opening is a seperate problem. Recommend you submit a seperate problem/question.
Good Luck!
