White Spotting/Film - Portable Dishwasher

Possible Solutions

Are you using rinse aid? 

The use of rinse aid is very important for the following reasons: 

  • Optimization of your wash and drying performance.
  • Controlling buildup of hard water deposits

Are you using the high temp wash option?

Always use a high-temperature wash option to raise the main wash temperature to improve cleaning for loads containing tough, baked-on food.

Are you using the heated dry option?

This option will:

  • Dry dishes with heat once the cycle has ended
  • Provide the best drying performance, with the assistance of rinse aid. 

Heated Dry will NOT:

  • Dry plastic articles
  • Remove all the moisture from convex bottomed items.

Are you using improper dishwasher detergent? 

Use automatic dishwasher detergents only:

  • Use pre-measured dishwasher detergent tablets and packs. Over time this will start to reduce or eliminate white film on your dishes.
  • It has been proven tablets and packs aid the washing and cleaning better than powder, liquid, or gel detergents.
  • Also with the assistance of a rinse aid, you can minimize a consistent build-up of white film.

DO NOT use hand soap and/or laundry detergents.

Have you cleaned the dishwasher? 

Use affresh® Dishwasher Cleaner or a white vinegar rinse to remove white spots and film.

Depending on the severity of the spots more than one treatment may be required.

A water softener is strongly recommended if your hardness is 13 grains or more.

Extremely hard water mineral deposits can cause damage to your dishwasher and make it difficult to achieve good cleaning.

Cleans even where you can't see

affresh® cleans deep inside your appliances reaching components such as the tub, racks, pump, valves, drain, and recirculation hoses.

Cleaners are available at many retailers or can be purchased here.
