Question about Dishwashers
Thanks for your question.
You may have a couple of problems, first if you are using jet dry it is a surfactant. Which means that it places a small amount of a chemical on you dishes to keep them from spotting. If your dishwasher is releasing to much this will cause a white coating on dishes. In the loading area for you jet dry or liquid spot rinse there should be a knob that is marked from 1-5 or so. First turn this dial all the way down to 1. This will reduce the amount of jet dry released. Then monitor the amount of jet dry that you are going through. You should be able to get about 60 loads from a small bottle of jet dry. The other problem may be that you have washed a item that was not dishwasher safe, like a plastic bowl or such. Some of these items will leech the pigment into your dishwasher and then onto you dishes.
I might suggest that you purchase some dishwasher cleaner from you local Store. Walmart and most box stores carry this in the same section that you purchase your detergent. You will need to empty the dishwasher, following the instructions on the cleaner insert into your dishwasher. Then run it through a complete cycle. After attempting these items please let me know if you still have an issue, but I am almost certain that you will have corrected the problem. Thanks D.R. Wilkins

Tips for a great answer:
The white residue is from the new environmentally safe soap. Check
your soap and see if it is phosphate free soap and that will be your issue. Also
either you have hard water or you're seeing either calcium or lime deposits. You
should use the jet dry for every load. There should never be any suds in a
dishwasher. Do not use liquid dish detergent for the dishwasher.Try running a
load without dishes, using vinegar, or a bottle of Dishwasher Magic. Another
possibility could be you're not getting enough water. The level should be close
to the heater(check your tech sheet to be sure). The water temp should be at
least 140 deg.F (no matter what the box says) Also, use a good brand of
detergent (Cascade) and be sure your wetting Agent dispenser is full. (jet
dry)You should not have to pre-wash your dishes..just scrape them well.The
detergent actually needs some dirty dishes to work properly..fats, protien,
etc. to make up 1 more chemical for the detergent.Another important step is to
run the hot water faucet before running your d/w to "purge" the cold
water out of the line.
