Hard Water and Clean Dishes, Can We Have Both?

HardWaterFilter: My mother is frustrated because she now has to soak her dishes in lime-away to get them as clean as they used to get in the dishwasher. She believes this is because the amount of phosphates in diswashing soap has recently been lowered. She is on well water and it is pretty hard water. Is there anything she can do to get her dishes clean in the dishwasher again?

Obviously a water softener is an option. But I'm hoping there might be something else she can add to the dishwasher or dishwashing process.
