      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Dishwasher ?

Recommended Posts

Our d.w. is using water for wash and rinse, yet the dishes come out w/ what I think is a film of soap on them. Especially the bottom rack. Tried jet dry, and also the drier in the dw works. Any ideas? Thanks, Mike

Clean the trap on the bottom. most washers have a trap to collect junk, I know Bosh you have to clean it every wash.

Try also running it empty and run a cup of vinegar to clean it out.

Also do not use the cheap dish washing soap, get Cascade helps a lot.

a couple tips, run the hot water at the sink until it gets hot then start your d.w., dont use to much soap, 2 tablespoons is plenty, if you dont rinse your dishes before washing the holes at the ends of your spray arms maybe plugged with food particles, if they are plugged your spray arms arnt turning. if you have soft water stop using jet dry. simple test to see if your spray arms are tuning: point all your spray arms in one direction, start dw let run a few minutes open and see if the spray arms have changed positions.

Had the same problem.Old dish washer had no problem untill it burnt up(literaly)New one was a POS right off the bat I wasnt happy at all. I used the vinegar trick for a wile and it helped some. Then did vinegar/santiclean setting and no soap and it helped more! It used the soap residue that had been accumilating.

Then bought a water softener and all was well on normal cycle with less soap and air dry. I had been wanting the softner any way just had to wait to aford it.I still cant understand the big difference between the two brands. I know that alot of them are made by the same company but I dont think the next one will be a KM.

We've had the tech out 2 times in the last 3 weeks for the same reason.

Our dishwasher has been doing this since day one, and after 2 years my wife had finally had enough.

He's run through all the tests, said everything is working as it should, but we still get the film on the dishes and food particles on others.

He said pretty much to a "T" what ikatcher said.

the big thing with new dishwashers is with all the rage with efficiency today the water is not heated by the d.w.if the water is not hot enough,it will not break down the soap like the older dishwashers that use the heater to help heat the water, the spotting on dishes can also be caused by hard water, jet dry is a softning agent, thats why if you have soft water adding jet dry is like adding soap to the final rinse. a good way to see if you have hard water is if the heater in your dishwasher has turned white, you have hard water if its still black you have soft water.

What kind you using?

Kenmore elite.

Out tech said to make sure you're using the jet dry, and says that our water is just fine as far as softness.

We're going to start to run the hot water first, and also cut back on the soap, see what that does.

My wife and I had the same thing and never really used the dishwasher, then we started using the Cascade gel caps and those are amazing, our dishes come out clean without any soap residue on them...give them a shot..

Does your Dishwasher drain into your garbage disposal? If it does the water and garbage from the sink may flow into the dishwasher if the hose is not properly configured. The hose need a loop (like a p trap)in it that raises above the disposal to keep the stuff from siphoning into the dishwasher.
