Crusty stuff on glasses after wash cycle

I've just recently moved into an apartment and I'm not sure how old this dishwasher is, but every time I wash dishes my glasses come out with crusty(like sand) stuff on them. Once this stuff is on there it is hard to get off even if you hand wash them. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

    My roommate and I have the same exact problem, we are looking for an online manual to find a trap to clean. This crust is really upsetting us. Hope it helps. If we find an answer, we will respond.

    We are also new in an apartment with the exact same problem! Crusty-sand like hard crud on the dishes. Especially on the outsides of the glasses and very difficult to clean off with hand washing. It also accumulates on the vent on the inside of the door. Has anyone found out why this happens and what was the solution?

I never figured out what caused this problem. I cleaned it and took it all apart, could not find any debris lodged anywhere. However, I solved this problem! I now only use Cascade Complete dishwasher detergent. Has to be the "complete" version of Cascade. No more grit - nice clean dishes now and sparkling glasses.

Why does the large reservoir in the door that holds the detergent leaks continuoulsy?


Over time old dishwasher detergent that doesn't dissolve during a wash cycle can get crusty causing the reservoir to stick or not fully shut. Also, some reservoirs use doors with a gasket seal which loses its ability to seal after many wash cycles. Some doors like this have a latch that wears and no longer latches. Not knowing specifics, it is difficult to diagnose. I had to replace my reservoir in my Frigidaire because I couldn't keep the door closed.

This is a classic sign of too much detergent. Are you only using one tablet? Too low of a washing temperature could also be your culprit. Dishwasher detergent needs to be washed with at least 120 degree water. Check to make sure your supply is hot (if it's plumbed to intersect with your faucet, just check faucet hot water supply temp). I'm not sure why you're running it on a two hour cycle, dishwashers can generally do the job in about 40 minutes. The grit is probably because there are food particles in your food trap. Make sure the food filter beneath the spray arm (if equipped) is clean and check the lowest areas for food scraps.

  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
  6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
  7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.
Scrape away large pieces of food, bones, pits, toothpicks, etc. Burned on food should be loosened before loading. Empty liquids from glasses and cups. Foods such as mustard, mayonnaise, vinegar, lemon juice and tomato products may cause discoloration of stainless steel and plastics if allowed to sit for a long period of time. Unless the dishwasher is to be operated at once, it is best to rinse off these food soils. Load racks so that large items do not prevent the detergent dispenser from opening. If the dishwasher drains into a food disposer, be sure disposer is completely empty before starting the dishwasher.

Hi, i had the same problem twice and both time there was some plastic stuff in the shredder. Remove the screw in the middle and remove the cap and you will probably find some pieces near the blades.

CRUSTY'S LEFT IN GLASSWARE


Things that have been known to exacerbate this problem are: 1. Putting too much food in the dishwasher - especially things like breakfast cereal, rice or couscous. Try scraping plates and pots thoroughly before loading them. 2. Not cleaning the strainer/filter - if not sure how to do this, check the owner's manual 3. Putting glasses in on their sides, rather than completely upside down - this creates a puddle of dirty water that can't get rinsed off and subsequently dries crusty. Sorry if the first three are insultingly obvious - but they are the most common causes of this problem. 4. Debris in the spray arms - you can usually get them off easily enough (though beware of left-hand threads on some models), then give them a flush through under the tap. 5. One or more spray arms put back on upside down (OK, confession here - I've only seen this happen once, and it was me that had done it. Took me weeks to realise). A.
