Hi fmitchell,

White residue is normally caused if you use a very high heat setting. Reduce the heat and things should improve.

Also remember to check the Salt container at the bottom of the machine, replace salt if necessary.

Kind Regards

Jacques

Dishes aren't clean, lots of white dried on stuff on top of glasses and dishes


The problem is most likely that there is still water residue at the bottom of your machine. If the machine is not fully drained it picks up some of the residue and sprays that onto the dishes during the final rinse, leaving an unhealthy and unsightly film on everything.
Remove the bottom strainers plates and make sure that the outlet pipe is not kinked, that there is nothing obstructing the pipe or the pump or selector valve. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine once more before using it again.
