One of my tips for dishwashers is buying the Costco Kirkland brand pods. We have incredibly hard and mineral laden water and despite a water softener, my drinking glasses turned cloudy almost as soon as I bought new ones. I had used both regular and pod forms of the regular brand name detergents. Then I read an article in the Costco magazine that they had reformulated their dishwasher pods to help prevent the problem. I was amazed at how well they worked. My cloudy glasses cleared up and they have stayed clear. And the Costco ones were cheaper!

I would agree on the Kirkland Signature dishwasher pods, we have used them for several years. Back in Ohio we had pretty hard water and had used Lemi Shine additive for many years to prevent the hard water issues. It worked great. Then we started using the Kirkland pods and no longer needed the Lemi Shine. The water in Ohio was only half as bad as the water here in Jacksonville. The Kirkland pods still work great with no need for any rinse agents.
