Dirty Dishes after dishwasher has finished

Hi, my dishes are still dirty and the cups have a sand like substance in them when the cycle has finished.

    Our dishwasher is having a similar problem, it feels like fine sand is on all the dishes, and in the glasses and cups mostly. Plates are coming clean after wash though. Ive switched detergents a half a dozen times and we do use jet dry. Please help, as I do NOT want to wash all these holiday dishes by hand =)

There is a new product out that filters the water going into your dishwasher. it works great and my dishes look fantastic. they use to look dirty with a white film on them. after the first load when i hooked up the dishwasher filter my dishes looked brand new. it is affordable and works everytime. you can get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com. it also filters out rust and sediments so it should remove the sand like particles.

    I struggled with sand in the bottom of my glasses for months. In reading the reviews, I was tipped off to check the nozzles of my spray arms. I had noticed previously that the top spray arm did not turn during the cleaning cycle.
    As it turns out, the outside nozzles were completely clogged from small pieces of paper, chips off my dishes and detergent build-up from too much detergent usage. Upon cleaning of the nozzles with a screwdriver in the sink (my spray arms simply snap off), the dischwasher works like a new one!

You may be getting sand in from the supply lines. Fill a clear glass container from the sink a few times and look at the bottom for sand particles. You may be getting sand from a pool filter? Remove the filter from the faucet head (it should unscrew) and look for sand particles in it. You may not be getting them in the kitchen sink if the dishwater inlets are below the sink as the particles may be sinking to the bottom of the pipes. You may need to put a filter in the dishwasher inlet. Try filling the dishwasher by hand with bottled water once and then see if the sand is still there. If so, it probably comes in through the water supply.

When I wash the dishes whether it is liquid or powder cascade soap the dishes come out woth a white filmy substance. What causes that?


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.

I have just moved into a new rental & the Technika Bellissimo Dishwasher isn't cleaning the dishes particually on top shelf. I have cleaned dish washer from top to bottom (arms as well)It is driving me...


That looks like the Washing powder residue. I am having a similar problem. But I am finding that the heating element isn't working anymore and hence can't rinse with hot water thus appears the soapy residue which dries into a 'sandy' substance as you say. Sorry no solution for you yet, can you check if when it finishes and you open it - its still hot inside?

Dishes are not getting clean


Hi there.
In the bottom of the dishwashers is normally a filter with a handle on it for easy removal. pull it up, gently, you might have to turn it slightly from side to side to loosen it if it is very dirty. When this filter is out you will see another filter that is just lifted straight up and on that one you might find a lot of dirt.Put both filters in a 10 liter bucket with on cup of chlorine(diluted to 5%) to 5 liters of water. Pour some chlorine( 2 cups) into the bottom of the machine, and close the door and let the machine run on its hottest cycle until finished. When the machine is finished, rinse out the filters in the bucket with warm water. Brush the rest of the dirt off and replace them where they were. Run the machine once again, now on a normal cycle with the dishes in it and I believe they will be clean.

Dishwasher cup won't open


Make sure no dishes have block it from opening. If this is a dial model, then with the door open so you can see the soap cup, turn the dial and see if it opens up. If not replace soap cup.

Mold growing on dishes


Recommend that you run another cycle with no DW soap aded, waiting until the dishwasher has filled with hot water and begins to do the first wash cycle. Then add 1/2 cup of bleach to the water and close the door. Allow the cycle to finish. Run it normally with a standard load of dirty dishes. Note: These high efficiency dishwashers count on the "dirt" of the dirty dishes to help wash/clean the dishes. Recommend you not rinse/wash the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.

Watch for any occurrence of the black dots and repeat the bleach treatment.
