Dishwasher is not rinising properly. Frequently food left on dishes and soap residue. We have a water softner, we have been using less and less soap. Sometimes theres even soap left in the cup at the end of the cycle.

My Samsung model #WA4H7000AW/A2 seems to always need an additional rinse to get rid of soap left behind. Is this a common complaint ?


Here are some questions that may help.
1) Is the water hot enough? Since the soap "melts" better at higher temperatures, cooler water can leave a soap film.
2) Are the dishes clean before you run the machine? We like to used the dishwasher to "sanitize" the dishes, so we rinse them really good before washing them, to get off caked food residue.
3) Try changing washer soap, try powder if you used liquid, or visa-versa, and try less quantity and see if any of those help.
God bless your efforts.

Soap does not disolve and residue left on all


The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com. They have a new product out that solves this problem once and for all. It filters the water entering your dishwasher and removes the hard minerals that cause these spots. Very affordable and guaranteed to leave your dishes looking amazing every time.

Dishes turning white


You mostlikely have very hard water. alot of lime or calcium in water. You need good water softner machine to clean your water coming into house. you will have to clean out dishwasher with citric acid or vinigar . Use small amounts of powder ditergent. Make sure all screens and filters on the dishwasher are clear.

Left over soap residue in glasses


you need to flush out the dishwasher, fill a cup with vinager and put it in the dishwasher standing up, then run the dishwasher thru a heavy duty cycle with no dishs. Then cut back on your soap, with new dishwashers and soaps you dont need much at all

Dishes not completely drying and white powder residue left.


Do you have a water softner? If so you are using to much soap in your machine. Go to wal-mart and buy a container of dishwasher clean ( it is by the rinse aids) run that through to remove any excess soap and then cut down on the amount of detergent that you are using. 1-2 tablespoons only.

KitchenAid Superba KUDSO1FLSS3 Not Rinsing? No Cleaning at all!


Hi there,

Here are a couple of things that you can try:

If there is hard water residue or film left on the dishes:
Check water hardness.
If the water is hard, use maximum detergent or try pouring 1/4 cup of Dishwasher Magic into the bottom of the dishwasher. I would also recommend using the High Heat option to ensure proper cleaning. To clean the dishwasher, use a cup of vinegar and place it in the upper rack.

Detergent carryover:
Check water hardness.
If it's below 10 grains, use less detergent and the High Heat option.

It is also possible that you may have a problem with the drain loop check valve as it's not sealing. This may cause residue or food to be left on the dishes. For this, I would recommend you have a technician do it, as it requires replacing the entire drain loop.

Let me know if any of this solves the problem.
