Haier Stainless SteelDishwasher HDP18PA not washing dishes

We have had or dishwasher for about 5 months and have had no problems thus far. Last week glasses were coming out cloudy and with a residue, and in the past week plates were not being cleaned, and everything in the dishwasher had a greasy residue.
We have been using correct tablets, adding salt and using rinse aid also to no avail.
We have also used a dishwasher cleaner, but none of these has made a difference. We use the dishwasher constantly and has been great but at the moment it is useless.
Please help, thanks
Cathy and Bob

Hard water is the reason for the spots. There is a new product out at that is made specifically to fix this problem. It filters the water going only into your dishwasher leaving your dishes spot free with every load. It is very affordable and guaranteed to work or your money back. You will love the way your dishes look after the very first load.

The heater probably isn't coming on, making it so the detergent can't dissolve completely or clean very well.

To test this, pause the unit about 10 minutes into the wash cycle (hit the stop/start button) and feel the water in the bottom. It should be hot, not lukewarm.

Also, if the heater isn't working, you won't see as much steam come out when you open the door at the end of the cycle.

Until you get it fixed, try using the pots/pans cycle (I use it for every load with this machine).
