I found this on ehow I believe it will help. How to Troubleshoot Dishwasher Residue By Dale Yalanovsky eHow Contributor

Dishwater residue is a fairly common occurrence, and several things can cause it. Even the newest dishwashers may leave residue, and it might have nothing to do with the actual dishwasher function itself. However, there are things you can do to prevent, limit or completely remove dishwasher residue during every washing cycle.

  1. Detergent Residue
    • Modern phosphate-free detergents are the main culprits when it comes to detergent residue. After every wash, many leave a slight whitish residue behind. After several washings, the residue becomes caked on and leaves a noticeable white tint to your dishes. Some dishwasher detergent brands are better than others, and either minimize residue or do not leave any. Once residue is present, however, the only way to remove it is by hand scrubbing or scraping.
    Hard-Water Residue
    • Hard-water residue comes from non-softened water from your hot water tank. Non-softened water leaves a white tint on dishes, but no amount of scrubbing will remove it. Only by wiping a small patch of the dish with vinegar or lemon juice will you be able to ascertain whether the white residue left is hard water or detergent. The slight acidic action of the vinegar or lemon juice removes hard-water stains, but they have no effect on detergent residue.
    Greasy Residue
    • If the dishes feel greasy when they come out of the dishwasher freshly washed, you are dealing with a greasy residue. There are two main reasons for this: either the detergent is not an effective grease remover, or the hot water inside of the dishwasher, either from the hot water tank or the dishwasher's heating elements, is not hot enough. Boosting the hot water temperature on the water tank may solve the problem, and a second wash cycle may be needed for the dishes. A preventive measure of running the dishwasher empty with a full load of detergent also removes the residue inside of the dishwasher.
    Streaking and Spotting Residue
    • If you have spotting or streaking on your dishes, that may be a sign you need a rinse agent. Many modern dishwashers recommend a rinse agent to prevent spotting or streaking, and without one, your dishes will never be crystal clear or streak-free. The next time you do a dishwasher load, add a rinse agent. If the dishes come out spot- and streak-free, the problem is solved.

My dishwasher leaves a lot of spots on the dishes - Why? why? model DMT800RHS


Spots are usually a result of hard water. Your softener, if you have one, may be low on salt. The other thing is over loading the washer will do this as well. Last thing to check is your drain. Clean out the screen. If it does not drain properly it will leave old water in to re circulate.

My glasses & silverwear have streaks & spots on them. I have a water softener & don't use jetdry since we were told that would be the cause of the streaking/spotting. I have new glasses &...


First off whoever told you jet dry causes streaks has not been repairing dishwasher like I have for the last 40 years. All I will say is use the Jet Dry even with a water softener. Buy the little hanging mini-basket type ones and replace them as they are consumed.
Water flow problems are what cause streaks. The water flow problems can be caused by several things:
1. Clogged spray arm holes (Clean wash arms)
2. Sump inlets that are blocked with debris or plastic (Clean inlets)
3. POOR DRAIN FUNCTION ( a. Inspect all parts of the drain going backward from the sink connection
1) The sink connection is uaually at the side of garbage disposal. Remove the hose from the sink connection and clean out the port.
2) The AIR-GAP is the where 75% of the drain restrictions mainfest. Lift off the Air-Gap cover then unscrew the inner cap nut NOTING the installed position of the inner cap because you can only install it ONE WAY. Lift off the cap and remove an debris inside. Use a flashlight and inspect for any debris deep inside the Air Gap,
3) Inspect the Drain hose from the Air Gap to the Dishwasher drain hose connection for any kinks or folds. If you note wither a kink or a fold take a stick over the outside of the hose like you were putting on a splint.
4) Remove the drain hose from the dishwasher connection and inspect for debris. Clean as necessary. Just note there is power under the dishwasher that can reach out and grab you so make sure the power is off before working under the dishwasher.

Reassemble everything power it up, use the Jet Dry and let me know how the dishes turn out.

Does not seem to drain. Always leaves a couple of inches of dirty water. Also leaves a lot spots on dishes.


Check the float in the bottom of the washer. If it's stuck it could cause problems. Otherwise, maybe the pump that lifts the water up and out into the main drain isn't pumping properly.

Grit on the dishes. Foggy glasses. Blue type stain on the stainless flatware and the stainless inside of the dishwasher is very cloudy and streaked. Many areas inside the dishwasher feel gritty.

Leaving gray white streaks and spots on dishes


Check the following to address this issue--



1. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

2. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

3. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

4. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.
