PROBLEM
SOLUTION
CLOUDY OR SPOTTED
DISHWARE (AND HARD
WATER SOLUTION)
NOTES:
Liquid
rinse aid
is necessary
for drying
and to reduce
spotting.
Use the correct
amount
of detergent.
Confirm that the cloudiness is removable
by soaking the item in white vinegar for 5 minutes. If
the cloudiness disappears,
it is due to hard water. Adjust the amount of detergent and rinse aid.
See "HARD WATER (WHITE RESIDUE ON DISHWASHER INTERIOR OR GLASSWARE)"
in
"Troubleshooting."
If it does not come clear, it is due to etching (see below).
Be sure the incoming water temperature
is set at 120°F (49°C).
Try using the High Temp and Sani Rinse options.
To remove spotting, run a vinegar rinse through the dishwasher.
Wash and rinse the affected
dishware and load into dishwasher. Remove all silverware and
metal items. Put 2 cups (500 mL) of white vinegar in a glass measuring cup in the lower rack.
Run a normal cycle with the SmartDry
TM
or Heated Dry option turned off. No detergent is
needed.
ETCHING (PERMANENT
CLOUDINESS)
LEAKING WATER
TUB IS DISCOLORED
This is an erosion of the surface of the glassware and can be caused by a combination
of. water
that is too hot, from using too much detergent with soft water or by pre-washing.
Detergent
needs food soil to act upon. If etching has occurred, the glassware is permanently
damaged.
To
avoid further etching, adjust the detergent amount to match the water hardness, stop pre-
washing, and use water heating options only when incoming water temperature
is below 120°F
(49°C).
Be sure dishwasher
has been installed properly and is level.
Suds can cause the dishwasher to overflow. Measure the detergent accurately
and use only
detergents designed for use in a dishwasher. Less detergent is needed in soft water. Try another
brand of detergent if sudsing continues.
To avoid rinse aid leaking from the dispenser, be sure the lid is securely attached
and avoid
overfilling.
NOTES:
High iron content in the water can discolor the tub.
Tomato-based
foods can discolor the tub or dishware.
A citrus-based cleaner can be used to clean.
