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.
