    Soap film left on all dishes especially silverware, and dishes seem to hardly be cleaned when dishwasher has completed it's cycles.  Have tried all cycles and nothing changes.

    I have a white film on my dishes, including silverware. It is also all over the inside of my dishwasher. I thought the rinse aid compartment might be clogged. I have tried cleaning inside of dishwasher with a dishwasher cleaner - it worked until I loaded the dishwasher and ran it with dirty dishes. The detergent is not rinsing off. What is the problem with it?

Not sure about a salt chamber but 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

What Salt Chamber?

Posted on Sep 18, 2008

I found that my dishwasher was leaving a white film on my dishes. It was resolved very simply - I hadn't tightened the cap for the salt chamber and so salt was leaking into the machine.

SOURCE: white film on all the dishes and inside the dishwasher

I had that too but seem to have gotten it 'mostly' under control. I checked my water hardness and it was high but in the normal range. I think they recommend doing this and you can order a test strip from the manual.

But what I think has helped the most is making sure the water is hot. It takes a solid minute for hot water to reach my kitchen, so when the dishwasher is filling its often not hot enough. If I run my water to hot in the sink, then turn on the dishwasher then I know I'm getting hot water. I also measured my water temp and it was cooler than recommended. I kicked it up a bit on my water heater.

Between the two things seems better.
