Question about Maytag 24 in. MDBH970AWS Built-in Dishwasher
Dishwasher wasn't rinsing the detergent out of dispenser and none of the dishes were getting cleaned. Called repair man and he said it wasn't getting enough ampage and replaced the computer component. With that replaced and plumbing checked it still wasn't properly cleaning dishes. Large amounts of white, chaulky buildup all over dishwasher. We were told to replace it now and its 2yrs old a to of the line GE stainless steel dishwasher.
You at least seem to have a hard water symptom. But these two symptoms may not be related. Try putting an ice cream pail (1 gallon) that is half water and half vinegar -pour it into the bottom of your washer and run it through cycle. Do it 2 or three more times, if you notice improvement, then it was a calcium build-up. Stronger acid solutions or Lime-Away type cleaners should not be used as they can etch or destroy the internals. Vinegar will not harm you, your dishes, and will be a little gentler on your equipment. Try that first - see if your "white residue" subsides and maybe a chunk of something will pop out of your pump too. If you don't have a water softener, you may consider one. While this may not solve all your problems, it is something you can do that will not cause any real harm, and so it is a "safe" answer.

Have you tried cleaning with vinegar? Start the washer and let it get to the start of the wash cycle. Open it up and scoop out about a gallon of water from the bottom. Pour in a gallon of vinegar and let it finish the wash. May have to repeat a few times. This should get it. To keep it clean, add a few vitamin C tablets in with your detergent every few washes.
