Question about Dishwashers

Ingrained glass on top shelf

I have a 7 year old BOSCH dishwasher. I keep having to rewash about half of the glasses from the top shelf as they come out ingrained with dirt (looks like sand). I have taken off and cleaned the 2 rotary blades, cleaned the base etc.
I have checked my manual and there don't appear to be any other parts I can take off and clean. Your advice would be much appreciated.
Thank you

Hello. Begin by running the dishwasher after adding two cups of vinegar. Use the hottest and longest cycle u have. This will clean your machine. Then change over to cascade liquid and see if it imakes a difference. Finally, always run the hot water in the sink until it is real hot before you turn on your dishwasher.

My glasses come out looking very cloudy this has only just happened, I have cleaned out the machine, addded salt etc don't know what else to try, I have had to chuck out all my glasses. |Help it only...

Most dishwashers use an extention pipe from the lower unit that cleans the tops of the lower shelf and the bottom of the upper shelf. Sometimes, the extention pipe is not extended when it should be either because of damage or maybe soap build up. Check to be sure that the extention is free to extend. If it is resistant, a little vegetable oil on it and moving it up and down sometimes will clear up the problem. If not replace the extention.

I put too much Jet Dry into my dishwasher and the load ended up with everything having a white film on them. How do I remove it? It is even on very delicate wine glasses. Looks awful!

Food remnants left on top rack of glasses and ceramic mugs.

Before loading into the machine clean the particles that are sticking to the dishes.

Check the drain filter at the bottom rack and clean. It is user cleanable

Very filmy looking glasses

The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to to find out more info.

Top shelf items dirtier after cleaning

After some experience with our own fdw60 with the same problem, we now put all pots and pans on the top rack. Putting them on the bottm appears to stop the clean water rinse reaching the top rack. All washes since have been ok.
