Question about Asko Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have noticed that my dishwasher which is totall stainless steel inside has kind of a chalky sheen to it. My glasses have "etching" and don't seem sparkly. The dishwasher is cleaning as it should. But the dullness of the stainless inside seems to be building up and nothing makes it shine.It is a model 1796

    Have contacted manufacturer and they have a completely different set of solutions that you have not mentioned at all having to do with the drain in the bottom of the dishwasher so I am thinking the expert is not an expert.

Hi

Either you have hard water or you're seeing either calcium or lime deposits. Check the kind of water you use in the kitchen. If it is hard water you are required to use more dishwasher detergent to dissolve food residues. If it is soft water, you have to use moderate detergent, because excess detergent gives your glassware an etched-like appearance, or sometimes your glassware really becomes etched. There is a product called Dishwasher Magic that might help with this problem.

You should use jet dry for every load. If the film is soap, then the problem can be from too much soap, a poor drain or bad check valve. You should also use Rinse Aid. If you are already using it, then you may need to up the amount used. A bad check valve would allow soapy water to drain back into the tub and the rinse water would have suds that could also cause this problem.

There should never be any suds in a dishwasher. Hope you're not using liquid dish detergent or gel for the dishwasher, that's a big NO.
Instead of filling both reserves that hold the washers powder only fill the one that has the spring loaded door. Just rinse the dishes once with just water then do the regular cycle.
If you want the water to be hotter, use the pots and pans cycle. That cycle heats the water to a much higher temp.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Glasses have a white, chalky film around the top of glasses


This due in part with the government mandate to remove phosphates from detergent.
Several things can be done to improve the clean appearance of your dishes.
1. Start a wash cycle with no dishes and no soap. Once the wash cycle has stated and water is circulating,open the door and pour in one quart of white vinegar and resume the wash cycle.
2. Use a detergent named FINISH.
3. Use only the recommended amount of detergent.
4. Periodically use a product named LemiShine.
Taking these steps will improve the quality and appearance of the dishes.
On a final note: too hot water temperature can cause etching in glasses and only a lower water temp will prevent new glasses from etching.

If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1/4 of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

My dishes ang glasses are cloudy *** well as the doors


The cause of the cloudiness is usually due to hard water drying on the dishes and can turn into etching (or pitting) of your dishes. If you have particularly hard water it is well worth investing in a water softener or filters. 2nd; Use plenty of rinse agent (jet dry or similar). Rinse agent gives your dishes a sheen (almost like waxing your car) and helps the dishes dry quickly and cleanly. 3rd; Clean the d/w every 1 to 3 mths. using a good cleaner. Hard water deposits can be cleaned with a little CLR. Use GLISTEN to clean your d/w. Glisten is not found in grocery stores but can be found online or at an appliance parts shop for 5-6 dollars.

Dishes and glasses being etched; looking dirty; embarrassing


First of all, if you're talking about actual glass as opposed to crystal, glass can etch easily. Why? Because like crystal, there are variations in its quality. Cheap glass will etch faster with the use of an electric dishwasher compared to higher quality glass.

Did you know that the main constituent in most automatic electric dishwasher detergents is sodium hydroxide (lye) and chlorine bleach (another caustic acid)

A Bosch dishwasher has very long wash cycles, further exposing your dishes to the possibility of etching damage. You should stop using the sani-rinse cycle if there is such an option and switch to a gel format detergent as opposed to a powder. Use a rinse agent such as Jet-Dry. This should solve your etching problem.
