If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is toadd some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1 cup of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

Driver side window making obnoxius squeeking noise when rolling up or down


First take good glass cleaner & clean both sides of glass. If that stopped noise you had a film on glass. If someone smokes you will need to clean often. If that does not cure noise spray silicone on all weatherstripping & down tracks.

Glasse not coming out clean. They have a film on


I would suggest trying another brand of dishwashing detergent. Strangely, my grandmother swears by the cheapest brand she can find. The Wal-Mart brand. She claims that it, alone, gets her glasses the cleanest. Go figure. Good luck

Dishes are no longer cleaned properly. They have a white milky film BUT if hard water is the problem, why were they coming out perfect for the past 8 years?


If the film is only on glass. wash the glass with a citrus cleaner, if they get clean then your glass ware may have been etched by your had water and the detergent from your dishwasher is staying in the etched glass.

If this is not the case, then your dishwasher might not be getting the proper volume of water, witch will decrease the pressure of the wash arm or your spray arm might be dirty.

Glasses have milky film after running the dishwasher.


This "milky-like" film is hard water build up in your dishwasher that is depositing it back onto your dishes. To solve this you can get the product called Lemi-Shine at any store or on line. The first time you need to put about 2 heaping table spoons into the dishwasher with no dishes in it and run a normal cycle. Then load and put 1 table spoon in it for about 4 times and you will see the "milky-like" film go away. After that you will need to do a Lemi-Shine cleaning 1 a week. The Lemi-Shine has the directions on the container. I know this cause I use to have the same problem at my house and this works. Good luck. And thank you for the question.
