The problem is hard water. this is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system and it actually filters the water going into the dishwasher. i tried everything to get my dishes clean but nothing worked until i tried this system. my glasses all had a white, cloudy look to them and it was terrible. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. it is very affordable and works amazing. the filter fits right under the sink and solves the problem immediately. if you use the discount code DFMTEN you will get 10% off

We have a Kenmore Elite 630.16304401 dishwasher, lately we are getting small black greasy spots on the plastic dishes, also same spots on the plastic parts in the sump where you clean the filter? We h


A couple of thoughts:

1) It could be a gasket somewhere starting to break down. Check your door seal.

2) Food particles could have gotten caught somewhere in the drain hose, or something, and then turned black with mold and bacteria, then when you wash, they get siphoned back into the dishwasher if the flap which composes the anti-siphon check valve on the drain hose is starting to stick open.

Try putting a cup of bleach in the top rack and run a complete cycle with no other dishes in it. Then, load up some plastic dishes and wash them as normal. See if that helps. If it does, replace your check valve.

Also, insure that your drain hose is looped up above the bottom of your sink to prevent debris from your garbage disposal backing up into your dishwasher.

Good luck and keep us posted!

I have had a similar problem on a Bosch. Don't know where it comes from, except to say the bottom door gasket appeared to be melting for some reason. I replaced it with a new one, and no signs of melting after about 3 months.

I was able to clean the black smudge from various parts of the dishwasher using Berryman's Chemtool, a carburetor cleaner available at the auto parts store. Use in a well ventilated area. Am certain naptha or other cleaner would work as well, but again, use sparingly and with plenty of ventilation. Rubbing alcohol would not cut the stuff.

Let me know what you find.

Greasy Film on dishes


You need to use something with citric acid in it like a can of frozen OJ or tang, the citric acid helps break up deposits. (run without any dishes in it) Hope it helps.
