Spotting / filming / poor cleaning resultsInsufficient amount of detergentIncrease the amount of detergent, especially when washing full loads, or in hard water.
Hard water.Increase water softener dosage. Use additional detergent, increase rinse agent dosage.
Spray arms need cleaningCheck the nozzle holes in the spray arms. They may be blocked with a soil particle. Check and clean them periodically.
Improper loading.Follow instructions for use for proper loading procedures. Place dishes so water spray reaches all soiled surfaces. Do not overcrowd the baskets since this will block the water spray.
Insufficient water fill.Check mains water pressure
Filter system needs cleaning.Remove any accumulated or deposited foods. Check and clean them periodically.
Oversudsing - Prewashing with a liquid dishwashing detergent.Rinse items thoroughly before putting them in the dishwasher to remove dishwashing detergent.
Small particles (food or detergent) lefton itemsWater not reaching surfaces, dishwasher overcrowded.Check to be sure water action is not blocked by dishes. Check filter system for accumulated or deposited food or detergent. Load dishwasher correctly. Keep filter system clean.
Insufficient water fill.Check mains water pressure
Powder detergent stored too long or under adverse conditions.Use powder detergent within one to two months after purchase. Open one box at a time. Always close pouring spout after each use. Store in a cool, dry place.
Rinse aid supply depleted.Add rinse aid to the dispenser.
Pitting of stainless steel itemsProlonged contact with salty or highly acidic foods or with undissolved or highly concentrated detergent.Remove spots with silver polish. Rewash. Wash soon after use, or pre-wash items if they will not be washed right away. Do not overload cutlery basket. Avoid spilling or pouring detergent directly on flatware. Make sure dispenser cup is properly closed.
Dishes not dryImproper loading.Load so that all items are properly tilted for good drainage. Avoid nesting of dishes and/or silverware.
Rinse aid supply depleted.Add liquid rinse aid .
Scratches on glasswareA water or chemical reaction with some glassware. Usually caused by some combination of soft or softened water and alkaline washing solutions reacting with the glassware.
