(Where is my model number?)

My cups and glasses are coming out spotty, cloudy and filmy. What's wrong?

For spotting only, try using the heated drying cycle. If that doesn't help, try using a rinse-aid product.

For cloudiness or filminess, there are several possible causes:

  • Excessive detergent usage: Etching, or cloudiness, is glass corrosion. It is often caused by using too much detergent. A rainbow hue is the first sign of etching. Cut in half the amount of detergent used.
  • There could be a water flow restriction. Enter your dishwasher’s model number in our Repair Help for additional information.
  • You may have hard water. You can purchase water hardness testing kits at home improvement stores to determine if a water softener is needed for your water supply.
