My glasses are cloudy and some of the dishes looks like sand or partials on them after a 2hour cycle. I also use jet dry .
Some states such as Califoria, have hard water. Since you did not specify waht state you reside, I am going to list some hints with hard water issues.
a) If you hand wash the glasses (preferanly soak them in vinegar) and the glasses don't come clean, then you have a high temperature issue.
b. If the glasses come clean, then one of the following issues are occuring.
1. Check your spray arms (the bars that rotate) for any blockage in the holes.
2. Check for water hardness i.e. test strips -or take a sampe of water to your local water district for analysis
3. I f hard water is present then increase the amount of detergent. The phosphorous content should be 6 or better. (cascade powder with bleach)
4) Check the dial setting on your rinse aid dispensor-- if it's set too high, this will cause cloudiness on your glasses. The setting should be between "2" and "3"
5) Is the water heating during the wash cycle? Run the diswasher on normal cycle , then after 25 min, open the door and determine if you feel stem on your face. If you do, more than likely the unit is heating properly
6) What is the temp of the hot water coming out of the kitchen tap? It should be 140 degrees.
7) Purchase Dishwasher Magic (Ace hardware, TRue Value) --it comes in a plastic bottle that has a wax coating on the opening ( after you remove the cap) It's a liquid cleaner and works great. This will flush your system
Hope this helps!!
