Welcome to my new and improved blog!
Just to give you an idea of where I am coming from...when shopping, my favorite words to look for are "fully cooked", "dishwasher safe", and "3% Spandex".

My Dishwasher is Ruining My Dishes!!

Ok, so the dishwasher is over 12 years old, but I am still very disappointed in it!

About eight months ago, I switched from powdered detergent to the Sam's Club version of the Cascade Action Pacs. They seemed to work really well at first. Especially when I felt adventurous and used two pacs-- one in the Main Wash compartment AND one in the Pre Wash compartment. (Believe me, I did research to see if it was ok to use two. I like to "follow the rules." I could not find anything definitive so only did it when I was in a risk-taking mood.)

About three months ago, I switched to the Cascade brand action pacs. Well in the last two months, I have noticed that horrible white film on my dishes, especially the coffee mugs and glasses.
Do you think Sam's Club brand is better than Cascade or is this just a coincidence? Also, at first I was not putting additional rinse aid in, but since this happened I put tons in and maybe that is making it worse?

Does anyone have any suggestions for me? This is really getting on my nerves!

I'm thinking you may have a water flow problem, not a detergent problem... Is everything spinning properly?

Try dishwasher cleaner. It sounds like you might have a build up in your dishwasher. Better yet, try using a cup or two of white vinegar in the bottom of the dishwasher when you run a load. Just pour it in the bottom before you start it. I use vinegar every time I run a load :)
