Have you cleaned the dishwasher?
Extremely hard water mineral deposits can cause damage to your dishwasher and make it
difficult to achieve good cleaning. A water softener is strongly recommended if your hardness is
15 grains or more.
If a water softener is not installed, the following steps may help:
- Use affresh™ Dishwasher Cleaner or a white vinegar rinse to remove white spots and film. Depending on the severity of the spots more than one treatment may be required.
- Follow instructions on the Affresh™ Dishwasher Cleaner package.
To use the white vinegar rinse:
- Put 2 cups (500 mL) white vinegar in a glass or dishwasher-safe measuring cup on the bottom rack.
- Run the dishwasher through a complete washing cycle using an air-dry or an energy-saving dry option. Do not use detergent. Vinegar will mix with the wash water.
NOTE: Vinegar is an acid, and using it too often could damage your dishwasher.
