I have a new Sears dishwasher. It has a metal lined interior as opposed to our old Sears with a different interior,(I only know it was not a metal interior). My MIL also had this problem with a Maytag dishwasher.
I use the same soap as before with the old dishwasher. Now all of my aluminum pots,pans and bakeware,cheap and expensive turn dark and ugly when washed in the new Sears dishwasher. I honestly wonder if it is because of the new metal type interrior of the dishwasher and has nothing to do with the phosphates changes made in the soap industry. I never had a problem with the aluminum turning dark before we bought the new dishwasher. Everything else is the same. Are the Aluminum products safe to use now that they are dark? Do I need to toss them out and never use Aluminum again? How do I make them look good again?

Putting lots of details is really going to help and expert diagnose your dishwasher a whole lot better. If you still do not come up with a solution you can always go onto the Sears Home Services website and schedule for a technician to go to your home and repair the problem. I have attached the link below. I hope this helps!
