Brown Stains on Dishes or Dishwasher Interior After the Cycle

Brown Stains on Dishes or Whirlpool Dishwasher Interior After the Cycle

Brown stains are likely due to high iron content in the water supply. 

To remove stains, use affresh® Dishwasher Cleaner in the covered section of the detergent dispenser and re-wash dishes (after food soil has been removed). Do not use detergent. Follow with a normal wash cycle with detergent. If treatment is needed more often than once a month, installing an iron removal unit is recommended.

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.
