May want to get your water tested, you may need a water softner.

citric acid is lemon juice, lime juice ect ect ect. Every now and then we run crl or crc (cant remember what its called) through the dish washer. Distilled white vinegar does a great job and is safe on your dishes. Some of our pots and pans and our dish washer get a white film on theme and the vinegar takes it off. Manufacturers took something out of dish washer detergent a few years ago and it is found in white wine vinegar. hope this helps
