Have no fear about the vinegar causing the water to stop working. It is not directly related and the problem would have happened at some other time soon.
The most common problem with water not entering the dishwasher is a failed (hot) water inlet valve (solinoid valve) That valve can be found by following the hot water hose to the dishwasher. At the place where the hose connects to the dishwasher you will find the valve.
Good Luck!

Is there a product on the market that I can use to clean the inside of my Maytag dishwasher? We have very had water and there seems to be a hard crusty film build up inside. The dishes are not as clean aas...


Hello

I have used Vinegar myself.
just placed a large cup full in the top rack and ran it through with no dishes in the dish washer.
and once the dishwasher was clean we used a small amount of vinegar to clean the stainless steel bowls and silverware and glass.

I have also used this product:
http://www.reliableparts.com/product/Glisten-Dishwasher-Cleaner-1476390/Dishwasher-Accessories-461418
and it also worked..... although there are restrictions ( no stainless steel dishwasher tubs ).


I found this site for you:

I found this product for you as a bonus although I have no personal experience with it

We had an ongoing battle with white film on glasses and dishes, inside...


<p>If your <b>dishwasher does not seem to be cleaning well</b> anymore and you are getting<b> residue and film left on your dishes</b> then you need to read this.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Since July of 2010 the US Government has mandated that <b>dishwasher detergents</b> contain no more then 0.05% phosphates in them. The Detergents before this had contained up to 8.7% phosphates. The restrictions were for 16 states but many companies then dropped the phosphates from detergents to all states...<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Now if you are having the <b>scum, film, and white residue problems</b> in your <b>dishwasher, </b>there is hope.<br /> <p><span>There is a product that you can buy that will compensate for what the makers of the </span><b>dishwasher detergents</b><span> have left out. This product as commonly know as </span><b>TSP</b><span> or </span>(<b>Trisodium Phosphate</b>).<br /> <p>By adding this to your dishwasher, you can manually add back the phosphates to your dishwasher and enhance the cleaning process.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Now the nest question...how much TSP do I add to the dishwasher?<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>For many dishwashers, waters, and for normal loads you will find that a tablespoon or two is all that you will need. For very hard to clean dishes and for some types of water you may need to add up to a 1/3 cup of TSP. <br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>If you are having problems with your <b>dishes not getting clean</b>, a <b>black or scum film</b>, or <b>white residue</b> being left on your dishes at the end of the cycle, then I would start with a tablespoon or two and then adjust from there. Figure out how much you need to add to you dishwasher to make your <b>dishwasher detergent </b>work correctly for you again.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>To best part is that you can have <b>clean dishes </b>coming from your dishwasher again!!<br /> <p><br /> <br />

Dishwasher leaving white powder residue on dishes. Why and how to fix?


I have a Bosch also with a similar problem. I cleaned everything that I could (lower screen, etc.) and still had scum. I do have hot and softened water and neither fixed it.
Here is a cheap solution. If it does not work, you are out some vinegar. I started the rinse cycle, once it was full of water, used 1 cup of white vinegar dumped it in the bottom of the washer and ran it through. 20 min. Then ran another rinse cycle to wash it down. Next load came out 5 stars! Just like new. The vinegar can be corrosive if left in there for a long time, but it breaks down a lot of the mineral build up. Very acidic. Hope it works.

Dishwasher won't drain, filled with dirty water


My husband and son actually fixed it and proceeded to do the Happy Handyman dance all over the kitchen. They took off the kickplate on the front, and cleaned out the hose, then took off the sprayer in the center of the unit and cleaned it out too.....lettuce, a plastic spoon, dog hair and a set of vampire teeth later, and my dishwasher is working like new. Also, I ran a cup of white vinegar through just to get rid of the stink and it worked great!

Why is my dishwasher leaving a scaly white residue all over my clean dishes? I did not do this before and is only about a year old.

Bad smell/silver tarnishes in every load/dishes not really clean


Working on it. Ran 2 heated cycles. One w light Clorox. One w vinegar. Last load had silver only very slightly yellowed. Thought it might be bacteria, so Clorox. OR residue of some kind. So vinegar.
