Soap residue left on glasses after the wash is complete


A good quality rinse aid and forget economy mode its a waste . Also leave the dishwasher drying until it stops , it can be hard to hear but the LCD will still be on . also most plastics will be left with a soapy looking stain permanently .How much powder and use a goog quality one. another common problem is the soap dispenser being left open or coming open during the cycle.
check the drain hoses and the inlet tap is turned on enough
Cheers

Built-in dishwasher. dishes not clean, plus nasty white residue on everything...


Hi

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.

Dishwasher soap is not dissolving.


Hello,
Try emptying the dishwasher and putting a few tablespoons of vegatable oil in the bottom. Run the cycle without soap and no dishs. Often dish soap (palmolive) builds up and creates soap suds that won't go away during a normal cycle. The oil binds with the soap residue to get rid of it. It worked for my Kenmore. I know do it every few months. Good Luck!!!
Thanks

HElp Dishes not coming clean


Run the unit with no soap, after about 5 min. of run time open door and check to see if water is clear or soapy,If soapy then you are having an oversudsng issue.When your washer gets to rinse cycle, your unit (if oversuding),will be rinsing with soapy water and the the drying cycle bakes the soap on dishes.You might be having a white film on your clear glasses.Cut down on soap especially if you have soft water.powder soap is best.Your dishwasher will fill , wash , the drain.Its what you put into it that will cause dishes not become clean.
