Dishwasher seems to run for a very long time on normal cycle. It leaves a whitish residue on dishes and the glasses appear cloudy. I do use a rinse agent.

If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is toadd some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1 cup of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well.
You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass.

Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.

Try changing the type and brand of detergent. We had similar problems with a Maytag dishwasher which was solved by the above. The glasses in particular seemed to have a sand-like texture in the debris, yet drinking water showed no such problem. Hope this helps!

CLOUDY DISHES IN DISHWASHER SOMETIMES THE DISHES COME OUT CLOUDY


modern day dishwasher use less water than the older ones so you have to use less soap a lot less only 2 tablespoons but you also have to use rinse aid with the very little soap the cloudy residue on the dishes is left over soap

Cloudy glasses My dishes are not being cleaned. There is a white residue on my glasses and in the dishwasher itself.


You may have hard water. Are you using a rinse aid, you always need to use one. Buy some Tang drink crystals and empty a package into the soap dispenser and run the dishwasher through empty. If you can't buy Tang use about 4-6 cups of white vinegar thrown in the bottom of the machine and run the cycle. Sometimes the white residue on the glasses is there permanently and can't be removed it is called "etching" right in the glass.
