If your dishwasher has been in use for a period of time, you may need to clean the interior of the washer.
The next time you are at the grocery store, pick up (2) containers of "Tang" orange drink. With no dishes in the dish washer, fill the soap container with Tang, close the lid and poor the remaining Tang in the bottom of the dishwasher.
Close the door and run through your regular wash cycle. You may have to repeat this with the second container if it is an older model washer.
The citric acid in the Tang will clean the soap scum off the inside as well as the pump chamber inside the washer.
Good luck, it worked for me, cleaned it nice and shinny and smells good too.
Regards,

White residue on dishes


This has become a huge problem and a big misunderstanding on what the white dried residue is on your dishes.....IS it hard water probably not . Due you use liquid or powder soap and fill both soap compartments !!!!ow<br /> <br /> well here is a solution first stop using to much soap!!! <br /> most people only need no more than a tablespoon of soap.... powder or liquid..total... dont forget that powder soap can go bad in those card board boxes in a humid enviorment,,,( under the sink) remove and discard any soap that's clumpy and pour rest in a tupperware dish...<br /> <br /> so here is how to remove white residue off dishes...<br /> <br /> Fill your kitchen sink with hot water no soap and 1 cup of vinegar let dishes soak dont let water cool scour dishes in sink no soap rinse them and air dry all dishes .... some dishes may be ruined due to how long white residue had been on them called etching..... now we need to clean the dishwasher start dishwashere like normal no soap and let run for few seconds when dishwasher starts to fill open door and pour in atleast 2 cups of vinegar close door and let dishwasher run cycle repeat necessary till residue is of wash arms racks door and cabinet walls ... these steps need to be repeated in most cases a few times ...

A white flim appears on inside of dishwasher and over dishes


Usually a calcium build up from hard water.
Make sure your rinse agent resivoir is full ( Jet Dry)
Run the washer empty with abot 3 tablespoons of TANG in the soap dispenser
The acid in the Tang should clean the deposit. Depending on how severe it is it may require a second treatment

Check if the rinse aid reservoir is not empty.

Add rinse aid or if ok increase the setting to let in more rinse aid.

Hope this fixes the problem. Please rate the solution if you found it useful.

Dish washer \does not rinse good leaves white flim


Hi:
Some things you can do to try to improve your dishwasher's performance:

1) Make sure your dishwasher rinse agent dispenser has rinse agent in it. The filler is usually close to where you put soap in the dishwasher.,
2) Consider switching brands of dishwasher detergent, if you are experiencing problems. Depending on the water condition in your area, certain brands work better than others. Ask your neighbors what works well for them.
3) try different wash cycle's with your dishwasher. Sometimes the economy cycle doesn't work as well as it should.

Dishwasher not washing and leaving residue on dishes


We have the same problem with the soap dish. I found that we have to be careful how the dishes are in the bottom rack. Sometimes the dishes will block the cover on the soap dispenser and keep it from opening.

I have a Grohe dish soap dispenser that get clogged-? soap


Dilute the soap you use by 1/3 . this won't affect the soaps ability to clean, but it makes it easier on the dispenser.
