Is it white and coudy looking? it could be hard water and there is a new product out at www.dishwasherfilter.com that actually filters the water going into your dishwasher. it reduces minerals and rust and sediments. it worked great for me. its affordable too.

I would suggest calling whirlpool to have a tech come out and look at it. Your appliance is still under warranty if it is under 1 yr old. It will cover parts and labor.

Soap residue on glasses, dishes & flatware...what can I do..I use Cascade & JetDry


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Vinegar or lemon juice
  • Gel dishwasher detergent
  1. dishwashers have a rinse aid dispenser. If your dishwasher has this dispenser, fill it up periodically and it will release the appropriate amount of rinse aid automatically at the right time during the wash cycle. This will help your dishes rinse more cleanly.
  2. Rinse aid in solid form
    Some older dishwashers or basic models do not have an automatic rinse aid dispenser. In this case, you can buy rinse aid in solid form that attaches to your dishwasher rack. Solid rinse aid can be hard to find in stores because it is not commonly used, but it can be purchased online.
  3. Vinegar or lemon juice
    Appliance repairmen will tell you that one of the common problems they see with dishwashers is the buildup of excess detergent. If there is too much detergent in your dishwasher, your dishes will not rinse cleanly, no matter how good the dishwasher is or how much rinse aid you use. To clean the excess detergent that has built up inside your dishwasher, put 3 tablespoons of vinegar or lemon juice (concentrate is fine) in the empty dishwasher and run the dishwasher through a complete cycle with no dishes. Do this twice, for two complete cycles of the empty dishwasher with only vinegar or lemon juice added. The acid in the vinegar or lemon juice will break up the detergent that has built up in your dishwasher's interior.

    After you have cleaned the detergent buildup from the inside of your dishwasher, follow the steps below to keep the buildup from happening again and to help your dishes rinse cleanly and prevent residue from accumulating on the dishes.
  4. Gel dishwasher detergent
    Switch to a liquid or gel dishwasher detergent. Any brand will do.
  5. Fill one compartment half full Dishwashers will effectively clean dishes with much less detergent than manufacturers often recommend. The bleach in the detergent, combined with the extremely hot water used in the dishwasher wash cycle, will clean and sanitize your dishes completely, even in small amounts, and using less detergent helps prevent buildup and residue from accumulating on your clean dishes.

    Fill only one detergent compartment(the one that snaps closed) half full with gel detergent. Snap the opening closed and run your dishwasher as you normally would. Your dishes will come out sparkling clean with no buildup or residue, plus you'll save money by using less detergent!

We bought a new dishwasher because we were finding a hardened residue was being left on our dishes, it was ruining our dishes. Although we have a brand new dishwasher this problem is still occurring and...


My best advise is to reduce the amount of detergent to the least amount that you can use, and still get the dishes clean. We do rinse the dishes a bit, as the soft food disposer isn't made to act like a garbage disposer, but rather, to catch incidental food residues. We no longer fill the closed detergent dispenser. We sprinkle about 1/2 of the normal amount (that goes in the open cup) on the inside door and close it up. Our dishes get very clean, with no residue. Also, use a good drying agent as this will help sheet the water off of the dishes. It may take several cycles to see improvements, but you should see improvements nonetheless.
Best regards, --W/D--

Dishwasher is leaving white residue on dishes, won't come off


Their are quite a few reasons for a dishwasher to have white residue on your dishes. I will list some steps to take and help you get your dishwasher working again.
1. Are you low on Rise Aid? Most dispenser have a 1-6 setting right under the cap. Make sure your set between 3-4 for the best results. This additive helps in cleaning and drying your dishes and most manuals will say its required for best results.
2. What type of detergent are you using? If you are using the dollar budget type product you will get very poor results. If you are using a name brand make sure it does not have rise aid already included. Too much rise aid could cause white residue as well.
3. Do you have hard water? Hard water can make it more difficult for your dishwasher to clean. Be sure to use a dishwasher cleaner such as Dishwasher Magic at least once a month. Your dishwasher does a great job at cleaning dishes but when it gets dirty it needs a little help.

If residue is a brown color it can be minerals in the water.You can buy a stainless steel cleaner, just put it in the machine and run it thru a cycle.
Use only good brand name detergent - no tablets- use rinse aid- check arms for blockages-stack dishes with soiled side facing the centre-
LG are an excellent dishwasher

Our built-in maytag dishwasher is not cleaning dishes very well,


After you go out and buy/use a brand name detergent powder like Electrosol or Cascade (using less than the full dispenser cup each time), if problems continue, then have the heating element checked.
Very common for a film/food residue to remain when a dishwasher's heating element fails, even if the water heater temp is set to 120 degrees.
Good Luck!
