why is my dishwasher leaving a deposit on my dishes

This answer was rated:

BOSH dishwasher ~8 years old. Cleaned regularly. Dishes look clean, but don''t feel it. Not sure if it is salt or general dirt or dishes not rinses properly. I am using the same tablet I have for a long time, still adding salt and rinseaid as before, so not sure what is wrong with it


Try running a load without adding the salt and let me know if it makes a diffrence.

I'm thinking that you may have a heating coil going out and it is not melting the salt when the load runs.

Reply to The Home Smithy's Post: how do I run without the salt if the machine already has salt in it? Also, it seems to get quite hot and dries the dishes well still


I was misled by your adding salt statement. I thought you ment that you added salt to the load not the softener feature.

Another expert has suggested to me that you might try a product called "Dishwasher Magic". He is a salesman for major appliances and says that the product works well for the customers he has suggested it to.
