Dirty Glasses
 
Our dishwasher a GE does not clean our glasses. Does anyone else have a problem with that. I have used Finish and Cascade along with a Booster and nothing has helped.


Any suggestions except buying a new dishwasher?:

Had similar problems with GE, Whirlpool, Maytag and finally bought a Bosch and now Mommas happy.

We have a Whirllpool dishwasher and use Finish and our glasses are clean. We also have soft water.

Try running the dishwasher with a cup of vinegar.

Check your water hardness, if you do not have a water softener, this may be the cause of the problem. We have a Sears water softener, and dishes, glasses, and crystal come looking like new with just the dish washer soap and no additives. We also have a Sears whole house filter, but this was more for the chlorine taste.

1) put a cup of vinegar in the bottom of your dishwasher and run it thru a complete clean cycle
2) use Cascade Complete

3) If that doesn't work you may need a good water filter-we have a GE whole house filter--every thing is clean & we never have to change the filter in our ref rig.

There was a similar post a few days ago. You might want to read it. If you are using a liquid detergent, stop using it. Liquids will do exactly what I think you are describing to glassware and silverware. If you hand wash your glasses and they look the same (cloudy) -- kiss them goodbye. They are ruined!

We have a Whirlpool, and do not have any type of water treatment. We use Finish tablets and Jet Dry in the liquid dispenser. We only use the Eco (short) cycle and open the D/W door to air dry when the cycle is done. Our result is always perfection!

We've had a water softener since 1987, but we have occasionally had a problem with the glasses even though we use Jet Dry. I think maybe the liquid detergent may be too harsh. We've had several brands of DWs, but I love my Whirlpool that came with our new house. Best I ever had. We use Jet Dry and Finish Power Balls.

I have a whole house water filter which filters out sand, fine silt, other is carbon for the chlorine , I use Finish and Finish Jet Dry. Have a whirlpool DW. Glass come out sparking clean. Try the vinegar in the dish washer.

We have a GE, no water softener and use the Cascade/Dawn 'pills' - no problems w/ spots or dirty dishes.

After 5 years, Some of my glasses are cloudy. Others from the same set of glasses are clear. Beats me.

We slosh some inexpensive white vinegar into the d/w (along with normal powder 'pod') and got some new glasses. For a yr now they r clean.

My wife's brother was putting dirty, un-rinsed dishes and silverware in the dishwasher and had to do them about three times to get them clean. He bought a new expensive dishwasher and still had the same issue. Called for repairs on the new unit and the repair guy said "newer dishwashers don't clean dishes they just sanitize them, you have to clean the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher".

How can you get clean glasses and dishes with dirty water,

take a look at the Nova whole house water filter.

That's interesting, because our top-of-the-line LG in our MI house said NOT to rinse the dishes, and that the newer designs actually do a better job of protecting the finish on the dish ware if you don't. Beats me. We went from rinsing to just scraping, but then back to rinsing because the DW didn't clean them very well. But that was the worst DW we ever had, so it may have been the brand. We were not pleased with the LG French Door refrigerator either.
