Using a light lubricant, you might place a drop or two of oil on the upper rack's rail wheels or the bottom if either squeaks when pulled out. Take a look at the wheels on each rack (up and lower) to see if either is damaged or is not rolling properly on the rails. There's nothing to explain the "scum" other than the water coming into the machine....Cascade is a good brand and a minimal amount is needed for each load. The CUP located in the door of most machines will hold about twice what's required to clean a load of dishes,pans,etc. Cascade has a RINSE AGENT included in its manufacture. Be sure to rinse your dishes well before loading. Try different settings and see if it makes a difference.
If you have the time, take the lower rack completely out, when the machine is cold and the water has been pumped out of the chamber. With your fingers, feel around the bottom-center, check for debris, forks or other objects that can sometimes collect under the lower plate and under the drying element.
There's little to speak of, dishwashers are merely "boxes with spinning hoses and a drying element" so any liquid "coming-into" the wash-cycle is a function of your local water supply and plumbing. Sometimes "hard" water causes a "scum" and people will use softeners which are installed outside and will "clarify" water before inputting into your house. That would be a last resort.
