SOURCE: our dishwasher is leaving a film on everything

Disconnect the water line to dishwasher.this may be messy.connect it to a garden hose. the hose must be new . after connecting take the other end of the hose and pour CLR solution in it using a funnel.get at least half a gallon in the hose. raise the hose as needed so all the solution will fit .pinch the hose so the CLR doesnt leak out.connect hose to faucet turn on water run a large load cycle.if dishwasher has two water hookups,then use clothes washer hookups.if the hose on the dish washer is smaller than the garden hose than get a reducer at a hardware store very cheap.if that dont work have your water tested for contaminants.

Cycle wash leaves marks on glasses

Is the rinse aid dispenser full? Then, you might need a better brand of rinse aid or detergent. Some lead crystal glasses can't be put in a dish washer but you have probably considered that.

I just purchasing a Ken,ore Elite dish washer #12833. I have a Kenmore water softener. I was told with my last Kenmore DW to not use a rinse aid. Never had a problem with cloudy glasses. Can I forego

wrinse aids are optional with any washer , try it without if your glasses come out cloudy then use some ,

wrinse aid injectors on washer are adjustable for how much they add too(see owners manual) , you shouldnt need as much if any with a softner

GlassEs won't clean

Do you use a rinse aid? I've been using a orange grease cutting gelpacs in the soap dispenser and make sure to use a rinse aid in the section with the screw on top. I usually fill the rinse aid about once a month. The citrus gelpacs seem to make glass sparkle. I've only tried the "Finish" brand of gelpacs.

The dishwasher is not cleaning properly, glasses look like they have a film on them, plates also do not look clean & the dishwasher has a foul smell.. like rotting food in it.. we use the top quality...

Check the main drain system connected to the dish washer hose pipe. Clean the junction if clogged. This smell might orginate from the pipe.

Check incoming water quality. If hard water is noticed, use softener attachments to the inlet.

Fill dish washer salt in the dispenser. Refer user guide. The salt will help softening the water to certain extent. Finally check whether rinse aid dispenser filled with the rinse aid liquid.

Cloudy glasses My dishes are not being cleaned. There is a white residue on my glasses and in the dishwasher itself.

You may have hard water. Are you using a rinse aid, you always need to use one. Buy some Tang drink crystals and empty a package into the soap dispenser and run the dishwasher through empty. If you can't buy Tang use about 4-6 cups of white vinegar thrown in the bottom of the machine and run the cycle. Sometimes the white residue on the glasses is there permanently and can't be removed it is called "etching" right in the glass.

Film on glasses

Try a rinse aid. JET Dry is one brand. vinegar in the final rinse can help as well. Rinse agents wil do the trick.

Rinse solution stays on the glasses

First chech the machine is warming the rinse water and not rinsing in cold water then have your chemical guy come and check that the soap/rinse ad dispenser is not dispensing too much rinse aid and naturally make sure the machine is in fact ricing with water I have had it where a glass washer takes more rinse aid then i should and does not actually rinse with clean watr it was simply spraying the rinse aid wich sounded as if it was rinsing soulution was new pc board it was not changeing programs properly if you have and older machine it proberly has a timer this too can be a cuase of the problm if it is not clicking over to allow a full rinse cycle.Hope this helps let us know.

Glasses come out with a frosted appearance.

A frosted appearance can be caused by a couple of things in order to narrow it down, perform this test:
Purchased a gallon of distilled water from the grocery store and soak some of the glasses in this. Rinse them well and try to remove the frost with only a clean towel and the water, then dry.
Does the haze remain? If no, you either have water with contains high amounts of Total Disolved Solids (TDS) or your washer is not rinsing properly. For high TDS it will be necessary to use a filtration of some type (usually a Reverse-Osmosis System) but these are rather spendy and it is a matter of choice if you wish to invest in such things. Contact a water expert in your area for further information.
If washer is not rinsing properly, check screens and jets for any blockages and clean as necessary.
If the haze does remain, your glasses have suffered from a process known as silica etching. This is ir-reversible and glasses must be discarded if haze is not tolerable. This typically happens in areas where the water to the dish washer has been softened through a water softener, or water which is natually soft (0 grains). If this is the case, locate the bypass valve behind the softener and open it just a little. The idea is to allow a little of the hardness in the water to remain, thus preventing the silica in the glassware from exiting the glass.
Ideal water conditions for "crystal-clear" glassware is no TDS (200ppm or less) and 1-3 grains of water hardness.
Hope this helps,
