WHat are you finding in the spray arms? Paper, food what?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
it appears like it's powder from the detergent, but even when using liquid the dishwasher didn't work correctly and leaves a horrible cloud on glassware.
Expert:  Chas replied 8 years ago.
When the unit fills with water and starts washing, where in relation to the heater in the bottom does the fill to? does the water touch the bottom of the heater?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Not sure, never looked.
Expert:  Chas replied 8 years ago.

Fill the dishwasher with water it should just touch about touch the bottom of the heating element, this is the required amount of water for a proper wash, otherwise soap does not dissolve and that includes liquid soap and does not give the arms the power they need with the pump, if not filling properly, replace the fill valve on the dishwasher..
