Question about Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher

Kenmore 587 leaves a cloudy film on everything

This is new for this dishwasher. It's been working fine for more than 8 years. It's really noisy, but gets the job done. Now there's a cloudy film on dishes. I've tried changing detergents and using a jet dry. Is it a rinsing issue? I'm sure my landlord won't want to buy a new one. CB

    everything sounds just as it always has.

    Like gubster's dishwasher, ours has been operating fine for a number of years and it just started to leave the glassware cloudy. We have not changed detergents and we are using Jet Blue. The heater is definitely working.

    its definetly a rinsing issue.i would still check the sump screen and wash arms.have you changed the type of detergent?is the unit hot enough{the element on the bottom of the unit working}?the way to tell if its working is open the door and push a butter knife into the hole where the door latches in.then put the dishwasher into a drying mode and see if it gets hot,if it doesnt that may be your problem.

I get a film on the inside of dishwasher as well as dishes at the end of a cycle. You can really see the cloudy film on glasses. Dishwasher is only 18 months old.


Cloudy film is usually from hard water. Or it means the dishes arn't drying properly. you wanna make sure your using jet dry and that your not using liquid soap. Liquid soap is a killer of dishwashers and creates mineral deposits. If you have hard water getting a water softener helps too. Theres a cleaning agent called dishwasher magic that works to clean the dishwasher . You wanna make sure your heater is coming on too.

When the dishwasher cycle is complete there is a thick, cloudy film


jcb...It may be that your detergent is not the right one for the job, you're using an amount that is too much or too little or your water isn't hot enough. Water should be at least 125 degrees. If you don't have an turkey/candy thermometer, run the hot water and put your hand under it...carefully. If you can hold it there...not hot enough.

You might also see if there are filter screens in your unit. Clean them.
