A white residue could be some type of water hardness or residual detergent. Wash dishes by hand and dry, does white residue remain? If yes, there is too much detergent in machine. If no, water problem. Consult with a local water expert

Make sure your water line is ok. I have had problems with floodsafe lines stopping water during the cycle. The washer on those cheap plastic water shut off valves under the sink coming loose inside the valve and blocking the flow. I would make sure I had a ball shutoff valve.

Dishwasher is not cleaning the dishes, leaving a white residue on the bottom and front of the machine


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

Dishwasher leaves residue on dishes. Salt levels seem fine, rinse aid ok, and cleaning block is released fine.


Hi



White film deposits are observed if water is hard or when you are using more detergent than needed, try filling detergent cup half way. Try using white vinegar after the wash cycle is complete, run a complete cycle. Also turn down the heat on the hot water fed to the dishwasher. Try using water softener for better results.
You can also add vinegar in the final rinse cycle. Make sure that your soap dispenser drawer is opening and closing fine.


Hope this helps... Please post back if more information is required.

You have to use water softeners available in cartridge form. attach this to the inlet pipe.
If there is a compartment for salt in your machine fill it with special dish washer salt availble for this. (Pl do not use kitchen salt )

My new dishwasher leaves a white residue on my pots. pans and stainless flatware. I have not changed soap. Could the water not be hot enough?


Check the incoming water quality. If water is hard and having calcium content this could happen. Use water softeners in the inlet water to the machine.

If dish washer salt compartment available fill with the special salt meant for dish washers.

Check rinse aid compartment and fill rinse aid. Or use two in one soap tablet.
