Portable dishwasher working well until last week or so, then suddenly
dishes coming out otherwise clean but with a white film. We have a water
softener and what I believe to be a whole house water filter.
I suspect the water softener, because around the time this problem
started the low salt light was flashing and it was a day or two before I
managed to get some salt. After a couple loads of dishes coming out
filmy, I had the mister look in the manual for a troubleshooting guide,
but it wasn't really informative enough to be helpful. He did notice on
the panel that it was set for whatever the stuff is some people put in
that's not salt, so we switched it back. I assume it got set wrong while
fiddling with it to enter the new salt level. Anyway, even after
changing it back to being set for salt, the dishes are still coming out
So maybe it's not the softener, but the filter? It's probably due to be
changed, even so, would it cause this problem? I've done tons of laundry
lately due to a gastro-intestinally ill toddler and have not noticed any
issues with the laundry.
Any ideas or advice on this matter will be appreciated. We bought this
hosue int he fall and all these appliances and machines are new to use,
which is why we don't have a clue.
