The dishwasher saves me a lot of time and effort, but the convenience factor tends to drop off when I open my dishwasher at the end of the cycle to discover a white film on the “clean” dishes. Use these dishwasher fixes to avoid rewashing your dinnerware and get your dishes sparkling again.
-Open the dishwasher halfway through the cycle. If there are still patches of soap powder at the bottom of the tub or there’s no water dripping from the top rack, your dishwasher may not be using enough water. Call an appliance-repair service.
-Double check that your water heater is set to 120 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure the water in the dishwasher is hot enough. If it is and you’re still having issues, try running the water in your sink until it becomes hot before you turn on the dishwasher.
