I have a 4 year old dishwasher, from Admiral. Since its installation (I installed it myself – this could be the problem, see below), it has regularly redeposited food particles on the dishes. At first, I had to use only Cascade Complete Advanced soap (any other brand, and I had to put in roughly twice as much soap, filling both buckets and dumping some in the bottom), and all was good, as long as it was loaded properly. Now, it is pretty typical that I have to re-clean (ie soak and wash) probably 25% of the dishes that come out of the washer.
I have made sure that the washer hose arcs up higher than the disposal drain.
I have run the water until it was blazing hot (even though I have a heated wash option, which I use) out of the tap.
I have run a dishwasher cleaner through it (Dishwasher Magic).
The problem seems to be worst in the right front (top rack) corner, where glasses go. There is almost ALWAYS something redeposited there, sometimes so much it’s like “EW” because it’s all over inside the glass.
Now, I installed this washer myself. I am pretty sure I remember levelling it when I put it in, and it still seems level. I hooked it up to the old washer supply line, which worked fine for our older, less efficient, washer. What other tips does anyone have? Do I just have a crummy washer? It is not a “builder’s grade” model, with only one spinny washy thing…it has three, one on the bottom, one in the middle (under the top rack) and one on the top (above the top rack).
If I can avoid paying $500 for a new washer, I will be happy. If I have to pay $500 to get a decent new washer, I will be less happy.
Thanks in advance!
