Is it the dishwasher or the soap which had a vital ingredient removed by regulation?

The soap

The soap. Phosphates were removed. Ironically, NOT the type of phosphates that harm the environment. And not by law but by spineless woke manufacturers.

Go here to buy phosphate powder. Add a teaspoon to your dish powder for each wash. Eureka, clean dishes. Ditto for your clothes.

It isn’t the soap. Dishwasher soap still contains phosphates. Dishwashing soap was exempted under the Clean Water Act, as dishwashers were a minor luxury item that wasn’t in wide distribution at the time it was enacted.

Both. There are hardware issues driven by the appliance efficiency extremists in government, and cleaner product formulation changes driven by the EPA or similar. A big part of the cleaner issues are from removal of TSP, trisodium phosphate, which is an excellent surfactant. I’ve got a box in the laundry room, and if I happen to have a real dirty load, will throw some in.

It was phosphorus.
