The white scale is mineral deposits from hard water, use white vinegar to clean/remove it, run the white vinegar full strength through the machine a couple of times. Do this on a regular basis to stop the scale from building up.

The trays in my 1-1/2 year old dishwasher seen to be plastic coated. They have now acquired a kind of lime scale buildup. What is the cause or how can I get rid of the build-up


Hi,

First of all I am not paid to sell product but I can tell you the build up you have is normally soap. You can use vinegar, but I personally use a product called Lemi-shine. I add this to the soap (2 tablespoons) to the soap in the door for every load. This will clear this issue you have and keep the dishwasher clean like the day you got it. If you doubt this check out the Finish website as this will answer the questions you might have. Good Luck

No steam coming out of iron, does it need descaling and if so how do you do it? Thanks Iron is Wahl zx506-1


Hi, Brown water and whitescale are often the result of the water you use in the iron... If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that... For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water, and then use the bottled water instead...

I need to get rid of hard water scales inside the dishwasher


One of the safest and least expensive ways to remove scale is to run the EMPTY dishwasher through a cycle using 1/2 cup of white vinegar. If all the scale is not removed during one cycle, then repeat the process.
I hope this gets rid of your problem. If it does, please come back to fixya and rate my solution!

Dishwasher leaves grit on dishes even after a full wash


Most likely need to clean your dishwasher. Yes....clean the dishwasher. Hard water builds up scale in them, and the best way to clean them is with a product called "Lemi Shine". It's actually just citric acid the same as you find in oranges and lemons, but in this case you put it in the dishwasher and run it empty. It cleans off the scale and deposits that have built up in the tub, pump, and wands. You can do the same thing with a quart or so of white vinegar, but it would take a few times to get rid of the smell. The Lemi Shine smells like lemons, so you won't need to worry about it after you use it.
Best wishes, and thanks for using FixYa!

Photo has 'lines' across it. New batteries just fitted. Have the settings been reset??? How do I get rid of the lines???


Lines across photo's or over exposure Is due to the shutter not closing correctly. Common cause for this is moisture fouling the shutter leafs. It only has to be a very tiny amount to cause an obstruction. If you turn on your camera and turn the flash off face the lens towards you and look at the lens in the middle you should be able to see the shutter fire across the lens when you take a picture. I know its small but you should be able to spot if there is a gap ( may not be very big) where the shutter leafs meet. What you need to do is remove the lens unit from the camera, dis engage the zoom motor ( the motor nearest the front lens) then remove the main lens to access the zoom lens and remove that aswell. Behind it is the shutter. Undo the screws for the retaining plate, remove the plate, and then remove the shutter leafs for cleanning with lens cleaner or anything that will clean without leaving a residue. And remember not to touch the leafs after cleaning, use tweezers.

Humidifier does not reset


According to Holmes, one of the causes of the Reset light staying on is scale buildup on the heating element.

Remove Scale: Allow to cool before maintenance.
1. Repeat steps 1-5 in the Daily Maintenance section.
2. Clean the base by partially filling the base with one
8-oz cup of undiluted white vinegar. Let solution stand
20 minutes, cleaning all interior surfaces with a soft
brush. Dampen a cloth with undiluted white vinegar
and wipe out entire base to remove scale.
3. Rinse with clean warm water to remove scale and the
white vinegar solution before beginning to disinfect
the tank.
4. Wipe the heating element clean with a soft cloth after
it has had chance to cool.

If the scale has really built up it might take longer than 20 mins for the vinegar to get rid of it and you might need to refresh with new vinegar.
