We purchased this unit in 6/10. It leaves a film on my plastics and does not get my dishes clean (glasses, silverware). I use Cascade complete and jet dry. I don't know what is wrong. Please help.


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.

White spots left on glasses and silverware


The white residue could be water spots from hard water. They are most notably left on clear plastic glasses, clear glasses, and silverware. If your silverware is authentic sterling silver you shouldn't be washing it in the dishwasher anyways as this ruins it.------

The best advice for the hard water is to use jet dry there should be a dispenser for this on your dishwasher. The other solution is to use those oxi clean tablets or the cascade 2 in 1 gel packs. normally,this is caused by hard water. try using a dying agent like jet dry, it will stop the white spots. good luck.--------

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Cloudy Glasses


The problem is hard water and jet dry will not solve that. There is a new product out called The Dishwasher Filtration System. It filters the water going into your dishwasher leaving your dishes spot free with every load. It is very affordable and fits right under the sink. You will be amazed how sparkling your dishes look just after one load. You will love this product. Get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.
