Does this dishwasher Kenmore 13543 raise the water temp so the soap cleans correctly? We have hard water and even the best soap leaves a white film even adding rinse aide in my old BROKEN machine.


there is not much you can do with hard water as it is the minerals in the water that cause the problem
it is cheaper to let the washer heat the water as it only heats what it wants
Hard water comes from bores as most town water is put through osmosis filters that remove the minerals and produce the soft water
If you have a bore supply the seriously consider fitting a osmosis filter before the house as it will fix all sorts of problems found in the shower, hot water system , septic/sewerage and general health of the people in the house.
The initial cost will be outweighed by the cost savings from detergents and heating

Might be one problem causing both symptoms. Do your "clean" dishes have a cloudy white film on them? If yes, you probably have hard water. The hard water deposits can clog your machine AND leave your dishes looking dirty. Here's is a link to a map showing the regions of hard water:

Manuals are usually available on line. The film could be from hard water. Check with local municapal authorities and see. If the local water hardness level above 9 then a water softener is required.

I get a film on the inside of dishwasher as well as dishes at the end of a cycle. You can really see the cloudy film on glasses. Dishwasher is only 18 months old.


Cloudy film is usually from hard water. Or it means the dishes arn't drying properly. you wanna make sure your using jet dry and that your not using liquid soap. Liquid soap is a killer of dishwashers and creates mineral deposits. If you have hard water getting a water softener helps too. Theres a cleaning agent called dishwasher magic that works to clean the dishwasher . You wanna make sure your heater is coming on too.

Poor cleaning leaving deposits,dishes feel dirty


The problem for the spots is hard water. There is a new product out at www.dishwasherfilter.com that solves this problem once and for all. It is a small filter that goes under the sink and filters out the hard minerals that cause these spots from the water before they enter the dishwasher. It is very affordable (like 70 bucks) and even has a money back guarantee. After just one load you will be amazed how your dishes look.

You're going to have to take the unit apart and clean the build-up again. Since you have hard water, it's recommeded that you use tablets instead of gel or liquid detergent. If you get a water softener, you'll have to use liquid. Good luck and sorry to hear about the hard water. I have the same thing here and it's no fun. Good luck :)
