It not doing the job it use to do and its only two years old. It is leaving the glasses foggy looking /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif not cleaning like it should anymore. I use the jet dry stuff and tried running it with vinigar and baking soda and also tried with tang ( something i read on line) I am frustrated with it!

Don't pre-rinse your dishes because dishwasher detergent is activated by food soils. I really have no idea whats going on with yours.

CLR is a powerful formula available for dissolving tough calcium and lime deposits and surface rust stains from: tubs, toilet bowls, sinks, glass, chrome, fiberglass, stainless steel, coffee makers, humidifiers, dishwashers, washing machines, and shower heads. Removes calcium, lime and rust quickly and easily. Fast-acting, powerful formula with no rubbing and scrubbing. Septic safe and contains no phosphates.

there is stuff you buy to clean the dishwasher. It a container of stuff you open and run it through a cycle. Makes the dishwasher sparkle, and work like new.

Katste, we just finished doing that with our niece recently. Made her realize that if she wanted stuff, she had to do chores in order to earn what she wanted. If she didn't do her chores then she didn't get anything.

Works well eh? Same thing applies here and it works great. Nothing wrong with having a few chores to do.

KRP

It does, we did it with her older brother last year and it worked so when she started to pick up the attitude about wanting things and not lifting a finger... time for a change.

There's nothing wrong with them doing a few chores, it teaches them that if they want something in life they can't expect everyone to just hand it to them, they have to work for it and earn it.

Ok, trying not to insult you right now but it's not that easy...

Re-read her posts and you'll see... and hopefully it will sink in... she hates doing dishes which is why she has a dishwasher and wants it fixed.

If it's the same stuff I've used it's called "Glisten". You get it only in some of our grocery stores, same area as the dishwasher soap. Little white box with Glisten written in Green across it. 2 packages/uses in it.
Works wonders to clean up your dishwasher!
