US English - Cascade Automatic Dishwasher Detergent

I went online to see if I could find any reviews by others who have had this problem and found several on this website. I was glad to find the answers to this mystery but I am very angry about the product and the extensive damage it could have caused with my dishwasher and my plumbing! Not to mention the fact that had I called a plumber to clean it out, it would have cost me a small fortune! I have finally finished cleaning the entire machine and put it back together. What a job! I just added a gallon of vinegar to my dishwasher and I'm running it through a long cycle to hopefully clean out the parts that I could not reach during the cleaning. I guarantee that I will never use Finish DW Detergent again! I will be telling everyone I can about this terrible product and my horrific experience. I only wish I had checked the product out before I used it. But I foolishly thought I could trust the manufacturer to produce a product that wasn't going to ruin my machine or cause me hours of work to clean it out. Thank you for having a website like this to access!

As several of us have noted upthread, anything aluminum (even when part of a clad pan) will corrode with modern DW detergents. So no aluminum and no tri-ply or other clad pans.

    But stainless steel itself? Nah. I almost always put my disk-base stainless pans and my welded stainless lids in the DW, with zero ill effects. In fact, they get cleaner and have more shine after cleaning in the DW than by hand washing.

    My stainless flatware sparkles, too. My knives don't go in, primarily because I run a heated dry cycle and fear that, in time, the repeated heating will have an adverse effect on the handles, whether wood or composite.

      As an ex-glassblower, let me say you should NEVER WASH CRYSTAL IN THE DW, PERIOD. All DW detergents include a gritty material that can scratch crystal. Lead crystal is a very soft glass, much softer than normal soda lime glass. If you don't believe me, go to the Waterford site-they also say to never wash crystal in the DW.

      Thank you for providing some new products to try! I’ve used the Trader Joe’s powder detergent. It’s economically priced but admittedly does not work as well as conventional cleaners. Frankly, we haven’t found an eco-friendly DW detergent that works as well as conventional but alas, we just stick with eco-friendly and scrub extra hard…..someone will get it rigt!
