Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you want to know how to clean your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# PLD2560LCC, as it is starting to leave white spots on your dishes. Please follow these simple instructions:

1. Load your clean dishes and glasses in a normal manner. Do not load any metal utensils or silverware.
2. Do not add detergent.
3. Select the NORMAL WASH cycle. Close and latch door. Press START/CANCEL pad.
4. Allow your dishwasher to run until it starts the second water fill (approximately 10 minutes). The SENSING light will be off.
5. Unlatch and open the door and pour 2 cups of white vinegar into the bottom of your dishwasher.
6. Close and latch the door and allow cycle to finish.

Note: If these conditions persist, a home water softener should be considered.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

We had this problem too. We switched to the Electrosol tabs (with the red dot in the middle) for soap, and it seems to have fixed the problem. Make sure you have the rinse aid in there too. Good luck!

SOURCE: won't get dishes clean

Possible that the spraying arms are not working fine and there is less pressure on the pump. If so remove and clean the pump and check the spraying arms specially if the arms are not moving faster.Please check this link for tips to clean:

Testimonial: "I checked out the spraying arms, it wasn't the problem but it was a good start in troubleshooting the unit. I purchased a new drain pump and installed it. The dishwasher now works as it should. Thanks for the heads up."

Leaving gray white streaks and spots on dishes


Check the following to address this issue--



1. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

2. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

3. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

4. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

Glassware and dishes getting water spots lately.


I think your dish washer is starting to go out. We have a Kenmore dish washer (unsure if the model is the same), it started with not cleaning the dishes well to not sanitizing and now it doesnt dry. We are actually replacing ours today. We we noticed that it wasnt cleaning properly (water spots, or not rinsing well) we too added Jet Dry thinking that that would solve it. We soon discovered that it didnt help at all. Hope this helps you.

Dishwasher does not clean dishes and leaves spots on everything!!


You need 2 things. Slightly hotter water and a rinse agent. If you don't heat dry your dishes, crack the door 3 or 4 inches after it's done, to let the steam out.
