20 Most Recent Whirlpool 24 in. GU980SCG Built-in Dishwasher Questions & Answers

Film on the glasses may be a sign that the softener is not working correctly. It may sound silly but check the obvious first, is there salt in the softener brine tank? if not fill it up, allow it to sit for at least 8 hours then manually regenerate the unit. Also check the power to the softener. Check to make sure the bypass is not open. If this stuff is ok then have a local reputable water treatment company come out and test the water hardness to make sure the softener is working correctly. If they say it is not working check the brine draw tubing. The most common failure is from a slight leak in the brine draw tubing which keeps the unit from regenerating effectively. During the brine draw phase of regeneration (2nd step) the softener should draw all the water from the brine tank. Repair or replace the tubing as needed.

This means that some debris is trapped inside the motor. You can complete this repair yourself, it's simple. Remove the lower spray arm followed by the screws on the top of the motor housing.
The impeller will be below the part that lifts off with the screws removed.

Your problem is probably the water fill valve is defective or it may be the drain valve is stuck open. If it is not filling with water at all, it is probably the fill valve. If it is filling as fast as it is draining, it is probably the drain valve.

If you need more help, post another comment.
