How to clean residue ?

We have a brand new GE built in dishwasher. We accidently put a light cover that was not painted, but actually a sticker into the dishwasher. It completely stripped the light fixture and even after cleaning it as best we can, we still are getting little specks of the paint/sticker on our dishes. I am very concerned that this is clogging the bottom and we will eventually burn out our new washer! Does anyone have any suggestions as to how clean the bottom out. I can't see how the screen will come off. I am sure there is gunk under that screen. HELP!

Door won't open


Call the store where you bought it or the GE repair service, you should be covered under warranty, this should not happen on a new machine.

Residue of dood,spices on dishes after cleaning


I would suggest calling whirlpool to have a tech come out and look at it. Your appliance is still under warranty if it is under 1 yr old. It will cover parts and labor.
