Dishwasher not cleaning


I have been in my apartment since Sept 2007. About a month ago, the dishwasher stopped cleaning properly, leaving a white filmy residue on almost everything. It took almost 2 weeks before maintenance came by to check on it. The giy said it seems to be working all functions properly but because I did not have the dry heat switch turned on, that was probably what was causing the problem. Well, first load after he came, problem not fixed. A week later the head of maintenance came over and said there appeared to be a calcium buildup causing it. He ran a complete cycle with some chemical agent to clean it out, then a complete cycle to do a full rinse. First load after he had done this, problem still not fixed. At what point am I entitled to say enough is enough, I am tired of not being able to have clean pots and pans unless I wash them by hand. My rent is for my apartment and functioning appliances supplied by landlord. If I am one day late with my rent I get hit with a late fee, so why is landlord allowed to drag their feet for a month on getting me a properly functioning dishwasher?
