Why Is My Dishwasher Not Cleaning Dishes Properly?

Is your dishwasher not cleaning dishes properly? You might just need a refresher on how to clean your dishes in the dishwasher effectively. From cloudy glasses to a salty taste, food residue and stained cutlery, here’s the top problems that people encounter when using their dishwasher and how to solve them.


Cloudy glasses

In areas with hard water, mineral deposits like calcium and magnesium can build up over time leaving a cloudy film on glassware. Hard water can also damage your dishwasher. To protect both your glassware and your appliance from limescale, use Finish® Deep Clean.


Food residue

You may have stacked your dishes too tightly or ineffectively. Check that you haven't overloaded the machine, crowded your plates or put items on top of one another.  Also that the Finish® Dual Action Dishwasher Cleaner. Consider a dishwasher cleaner an important, ongoing part of regular maintenance.
