We have hard water at our home, but the new dishwasher leaves a thick film on the glasses. We use the rinse agent, but it's awful.

You have to buy a cartridge type water softener and attach it to the
inlet water line of your dish washer. In addition to this there must be
a salt compartment in the dish washer.
Refer the user guide /owners manual and locate. Fill it with the special
dish washer salt. ( Do not use kitchen salt used for food).
The dish washer salt may help to certain extent in softening the wash
tub water inside. Check the switch settings for rinse aid and salt
release settings in the machine. Refer manual!

Try adding some Lemishine in with the detergent. We had this start about a year ago when the dish detergents stopped including phosphate. I use about an 1/8 of the fill cup (about a tablespoon) along with a regular dose of detergent and it completely fixed it.

White film inside the dishwasher and on dishes


Usa a liquid detergent and rinse agent. Make sure your water is above 120 degrees. If you are a hard water area, use a detergent containing a water softener.

My dishes are coming out with a thick cloudy film


Most dishwasher detergents now have some sort of rinse agent already in them. If this is the case don't add it to your dispenser once it runs out. Too much rinse agent can cause clouding.
