|Posted: 7/12/2009 12:21:03 PM|My dishwasher is making my glass glasses really cloudy and scummy looking. I changed soaps and it doesn't seem to help. We remodeled and my dishwasher is practically new. It is stainless steel inside and it is all filmey looking too. Help!!!

soak your glasses in a solution of vinegar and water.
Run your dishwasher with a cup of vinegar in it and see if that helps.

Do you use a rinse agent? Mine does better with jet-dry or something similar.

put a splash of vinegar in the bottom of your dishwasher when you run it. it works very well. (I use white vinegar).

I second that suggestion about the vinegar. It definitely works.

When you say add to the bottom of your dishwasher, do you mean just throw it onto the bottom?

Jet dry and I found liquid much kinder to my dishes than power.

I can't remember if I read it in the dishwasher manual or what, but I read that if you use too much detergent, you will get a permanent film on your glasses.

We briefly lived in an area that had really hard water. My glasses went from pretty to ugly within a couple of weeks. I started using the Jet Dry along with the detergent that had some already in it. That helped a lot along with moving to a new area with better water.
I think adding some vinegar is a good idea too.

If its doing that to your dishes, you've also got hard water in your washing machine, making the rinse less effective. We have well water and have a filter and water softener. I use less detergent in clothes washer and still have to rinse some thing twice. I use Jet Dry, but will try the vinegar too.

Sounds like you have hard water. To get rid of the existing film, run an empty load with a juice glass filled with white vinegar in the top rack. YOu don't need to let it go through the dry cycle.
For daily use,
1. Use less detergent than it calls for.
2. Add the splash of vinegar
3. Make sure your jet-dry rinse agent section is full. Check it regularly.
4. Keep trying other detergents. We like Sunlight Oxi-Action.

I agree with using less detergent. If you're filling both of those little compartments with soap, only fill 1.

i know you are going to laugh but run the glasses thru a cycle with tang in it. yes tang as in the drink. it should help get the glasses clean. i don't know if you can put some in every time you run it...i've never tried it. but i know it got my dishes and glasses looking terrific and it is one less chemical i have to use in my household...
