Water spots when using dishwasher but not when handwashing dishes?
I know we have hard water where I live. I can handwash dishes in the sink and they don't get water spots after drying. When I use my dishwasher, the water spots are real bad. Could it be something with the dishwasher or should I use a different detergent? I am currently using Finish Powerball tablets along with Finish Jet Dry. It doesn't seem to help any. What do you guys do to fight hard water?

I think water spots have more to do with the drying process. Make sure your dishwasher is properly drying your dishes.

Before you put your dishes in the dish washer do you soak them?

Dry them by hand - that will stop the spotting.

Are you using rinse aid? Try one for a hard water area.

Are you using a heated drying cycle? That might make a difference. If the vinegar doesn't work, I'd probably call a repair person and or look online using the brand of your dishwasher. You might find others with the same make/model who've solved the problem.

Try white vinegar. I just put a bit (half a cup) into the bottom of the dishwasher. Especially if I have a lot of glassware to wash.
