If you're talking about the ice maker The ice maker hangs on the wall with three screws. two at the top and one at the bottom. Just loosen these screws and the ice maker will lift off the bracket and you can then reach the wiring harness to unplug it.

If you are talking about the ice bin...Just take it out.

Hard water Calcium white powder build up in dishwasher

Calcium and magnesium is present in a great number of homes today regardless of hardness or softness of the water. Water containing dissolved carbonates of calcium and magnesium can lower the effectiveness of the detergents you use and leave deposits on the dishware and tub of the dishwasher. When these deposits dry they become what some call lime scale.

To remove these deposits there are a number of cleaners on the market today. I will list them in the order of my preference. You can find them near the dishwasher detergents. If you use them read the instructions on the label, but basically you can run a cycle with no dishes and the cleaner. Some of the cleaners like Lemi-Shine can be used with a full load of dishware after you clean the tub. This helps keep the tub clean and deposits off the dishes. If you want a home remedy that seems to work pretty good, put a cereal size bowl upright in the lower rack (no other dishes in the dishwasher) fill the bowl with vinegar and run a normal cycle. The vinegar will wash out and clean some of the deposits away. If residue is still around run a second cycle of the vinegar wash.

- Glisten
- Glass Magic

Here are some links to other dishwasher tips I have put together.

How to use acid citric to clean a thermal 5lr boiler

Use CLR or white vinegar. If it is a plumbed in unit, there is usually a small bypass tank at the rear and a crossover valve where you put the descaler and then run the cycle. On others, you fill the water tank and run the descale program.

The amount of Citric Acid you would need is prohibitive, CLR is a better product.

Steam holes on the plate are letting out limescale onto clothes, is there a way to clean out iron

Yes you fill the Iron with White Vinegar (the acidic Vinegar dissolves the lime deposits), and then flush with hot water, then clean the bottom with CLR (Calcium Lime and Rust remover) brand cleaner from any hardware store. This also is how deposits are cleaned out of a Coffee pot.

WHITE RESIDUE ON BLACK SINK do I need to seal the sink? aor how do you clean it?

It is probably only calcium deposits from hard water. 'Lime Away' will remove such deposits easily.
Black may be beautiful in the showroom or on people but not very practical for household stuff; we will never buy black kitchen appliances again.

CLR will work great, just rinse the ice maker very well after cleaning the calcium deposits and throw out the first few batches or bins of ice produced after the cleaning process. Good luck !
