Dishwasher won't clean and leaves a soap residue!

This problem drove my parents nuts for weeks. They purchased a home at the lake. Upon using the dishwasher it fail to clean the dishes and it left a soap residue. After several repairmen tried and failed, we discovered the problem. The vacation home was purchased with all the furnishings including the dishwasher soap. The soap was too old. Who knew? They put expiration dates on milk and other things but not on dishwasher soap. Dishwasher soap goes bad with time and it apparently doesn't dissolve properly then fails to clean. So just get some fresh dishwasher soap and you're home clean.
