If you find that the dishes have spots or films after the complete wash cycle, the problem may be associated to one of several factors. Incorrect loading, use of wrong washing detergent, low water temperature, or faulty water inlet valve may contribute to the cause of the problem.

  1. 1Repair your dishwasher free: Find if you have warranty for your dishwasher. If you bought your dishwasher within one year, it is most likely that you have warranty. Most appliance manufacturers provide one year free warranty. If you have warranty, call the company and get your dishwasher fixed. If you do not have warranty and do not want to spend too much money, you will have to spend some time to identify and possibly fix the problem. The steps below will guide you through the process of identifying and fixing the problem.
  2. 2Loading: Follow the instructions for loading in your user's manual. Run the dishwasher after you load it with dishes by following proper loading method. If it does not solve the problem, go to the next step.
  3. 3Detergent: If you store detergent for a long time, the detergent absorbs water from the air and looses its effectiveness. Buy a new supply of detergent of good brand. Run the dishwasher using the new detergent. Do not add too much detergent in the dishwasher, use smaller than normal amount for this test run. If it does not solve the problem, proceed to the next step.
  4. 4 Low water temperature: Check if the home water heater has problem in heating water. If there is heating issue in your home water heater, fix the problem. After fixing the water heater problem, run the dishwasher for a full wash cycle. If you still have spots on the dishes, follow the next step.
  5. 5 Water inlet valve: If the water inlet valve is damaged and does not allow enough water to come into the dishwasher, the dishes will come out with spots or films on them. Check the water inlet valve. You can follow the instructions in the article how to test water inlet valve to test the inlet valve. If the water inlet valve is faulty, you need to replace it. Read how to replace water inlet valve for detailed instructions.
