Usually this issue is related to drain issues. Check for plugged screens and filters. also look for kinked drain hose. Does the hose route to just under the counter, and then back DOWN do the drain hook up? If not, you can have backflow.

SOURCE: we get a gritty / sandy residue. what can I do?

The cause may not be your dishwasher.
Especially hard water may leave the residue. If you don't have that problem when you hand-wash, then check your pipes. Homes more than 40 years old may have galvanized pipes that eventually rust on the inside. The grit could be grains of rust from the pipes. If you do have galvanized pipes (rather than copper) then you may need to replace them. You could put in a filter as a temporary work-around, but that will eventually clog with the gritty material.
