We have had the same problem. Here is a solution that has worked.
Turn on the dishwasher with detergent as usual. After the initial drain and fill, stop machine open door and add about 2 cups of white vinegar. Close door and let machine continue cycle. I think you will find that it removes "bloom" on glassware and on the interior of the machine. The trick is to not cancell the cycle but to continue it with the vinegar so that the heat can help the process. J.

How did I get the film off my glassware? My glassware has a thick film that is very unappealing. I have to hand wash them. I use cascade detergent.


If you are not using a water softener use a rinse aid such as Jet Dry. This will help to eliminate scum on glassware. Use the solid form of Jet Dry. If you use a water softener you need to decrease the amount of detergent.
You can determine the cause of cloudy glassware by soaking a glass in vinegar for 5 minutes. If the cloudiness is removed it is a hard water deposit and more detergent is likely needed. If the cloudiness is not removed it is a permanent condition known as etching. In this situation, use less detergent and stop pre-washing. In actuality, dishwashing detergent needs a bit of soil to work on, otherwise it will tend to foam up.

My glasses are turning white? thank you


This eventually happens to all glasses in dishwashers, especially if they're lead crystal. Only Pyrex and similar types of glass are somewhat resistant to the problem.

The whiteness is usually irreversible: it's caused by a craze of microscopic cracks in the glass surface, effectively etching the glass. There is only one occasional exception and that's where the fogging is caused by microscopic limescale deposits in the cracks when they're still not present in sufficient numbers to cause white fogging on their own. Adding a cup of white vinegar to the final rinse (if your dishwasher allows the door to be opened mid-cycle) usually clears such glasses, but is not a sure thing as those glasses are already damaged to some degree.

There are dishwashing powders/liquids/tablets which claim to be glass-friendly, but all they do is to delay the onset of glass etching. Even commercial glass-washing machines don't completely avoid the problem, but in commercial use glassware rarely lasts long enough to become cloudy.

You only have two sure ways to prevent this being a problem in future:-

1. Never put valued or lead crystal glasses in the dishwasher and to regard all others as replaceable items.

2. Handwash all glasses.

I hope that my speedy answer has met your requirements; please take a moment to rate my response.

After a complete cycle now have a milky residue


The milky residue on the glasses is not a residue at all: it is irreversible damage to the glass and is caused by a myriad of microscopic cracks in the glass surface combined with surface etching. Vinegar only works if there's a limescale deposit caused by using too little salt (no salt at all, or the salt dispenser set too low, or just not adding supplementary salt in a hard water area when using dishwasher powders with an in-built salt function)

It can happen to most glassware, but will happen very quickly to lead crystal which is why every single dishwasher I've ever sold or rented out says not to put them in the dishwasher. So called "glass protection" dishwasher powders are a marketing gimmick; all they do is to try and eliminate chlorides from the mix and boost the salt content, but they won't actually stop the damage completely.

Similarly, most advise against putting silverware in the dishwasher. By silverware I specifically mean anything made of silver, plated with silver or electroplated nickel silver (EPNS). Stainless steel is fine though. You might like to read this short article on the subject.

Bosch dishwasher she58c leaves all my glasses cloudy


using to much soap will cause this problem.
If the unit can not get all the soap out on the rinse cycle, it will leave residue on the glasses.
ALSO:
1)Make sure you are using rinse-aid!!!!!
2) turn your sink water on before you turn the d/w on. That way the water is already hot when it goes in.

Not coming clean


Hi, Are you using Jet Dry Rinse Agent? It is very important to keep the washer supplied with this stuff. Otherwise, glassware will come out with a cloudy film and water spots. If you are using it, perhaps it is not being dispensed by the machine. I am having this trouble now, but my machine is about 10 years old, and has always turned out beautiful glassware unless it ran out of Jet Dry. Now, there seems to be a problem in my machine not dispensing it, and I was searching for a solution when I came across your posting. Baxterdog
