Hello there, I would like to know if you can tell me why the bottom of my rice looks like plastic. This is my first rice cooker and I have no idea of my its happening this. All I do, its put 1 cup of rice and 1 and a half cup of water in my rice cooker and turn it on, and when it tells me that the rice its ready, the top part of the rice looks really good, but when you look at the bottom part, there is a little hard plastic-looks like thing. Can you help me please ?
Try putting one cup of uncooked rice to one cup of water (rather than a cup and a half of water). Also, to keep the rice white longer, you can add a few drops of white vinegar to the rice and water mixture before you turn it on. Hope this helps!

Sometimes this can only be gotten to by unscrewing the bottom spray arm in the basin of the DW. First, look in the bottom of your DW to see if you can unclog the screen by hand. This is the Drain Filter Assembly. It screens the waste so the pump doesn't get clogged. If you swipe stuff on the bottom of the DW like that leaf lettuce and rice, this might help.
Is their debris in air gap or in the bottom of the DW, where the drain is screened?
1. The air gap is usually located on top of the sink. Lift off the pretty cover, and unscrew the top cap nut. Is there rice and debris there? Remove it then. Reassemble and check it out.
2. The DW drains to the bottom of the unit where the pump is. This area is screened off so that the pump doesn't get clogging debris in it. is their leaf lettuce and stuff covering this? Remove that debris. Some times this area can only be accessed by removing the bottom spinning spray head. It comes off with a nut, possibly this nut is reverse thread. Reassemble when done looking for debris.
3. Is the drain line between the DW pump (located under the DW) and the waste pipe kinked? This line is a plastic corrugated line about 7/8" around the outside. It is a pumped waste and won't work if it is kinked, so unkink it.
4. Is the float stuck. This is a device on the bottom of your DW that tells the DW how much water is in the bottom of the DW basin. It looks like a mushroom. Gently move it up and down. Does it move freely or is it stuck? Unstick it.
Unplug the coffee grinder and wipe out as much residue as possible with a
paper towel or clean cloth.
Plug in the grinder. Add a little dry, uncooked rice to the grinder and turn
on the grinder. Grind the rice until the grinder no longer has an odor or until
the rice is finely ground. Repeat this step if necessary.
Unplug the grinder and remove the ground rice completely. Wipe again with a
paper towel or clean cloth.
Hand wash any removable lid to the coffee grinder with dishwashing liquid.
Allow to air dry.
Clean the exterior of the coffee grinder with a damp cloth or paper
The measuring cup you lost is equivalent to 3/4 cup or 180ml and this can make approximately 2 and 1/4 cup of cooked rice. http://

I would not recommend replacing just the plasic basket, too expensive. Once the plastic parts begin to fail, the uint has seen better days (our basket was still ok, but the unit started to leak out the bottom and the timer would stop during the steaming).
Bought a replacment B&D Handy Steamer, oval shape allows longer food items to be steamed (approx 10"x8"), water res & can be filler while steaming. Price was $25 in local hardware (Jan 09). Not worth fixing the old one IMO.
