Lime buildup on Maytag MDB5100AWW

I have a 5 year old dishwasher that is gunked up with lime from hard water. I am wondering if there is a way to remove the bottom sprayer to clean inside of it. I have tried all of the lime cleaners to no avail and am hoping if I can get inside, I can scrape out some of the lime buildup... Right now, it doesn't rinse anything, and I am sick of the dishes piling up. Help!

    Same problem!  Maytag QuietSeries 400 - my glasses look disgusting!  I would love to hear if you find a solution.  I'm right now, trying the "vinegar in a coffee cup" and run through a wash.  We'll see.  I'm with you, I would like to pull the bottom off and see if it can be cleaned out.

My older model Maytag Jetclean doesn't clean.


The white residue may be lime from the water coming into the house (and, obviously the machine). Run some COLD water into a large clear glass pitcher and let it stand overnight. If there is lime it should settle overnight to the bottom of the pitcher. If no residew, get some commercial dishwasher cleaner and run the machine full hot and on all cycles at least 3 times to thoroughly clean it out...Good luck!

Our glasses are really cloudy. How do we clean the inside of the dishwasher?


This may be a hard water issue, but assuming it's not:

Pour 1 liter of white vinager into your dishwasher and run through a full cycle.

If this fails:

Pout 1/2 liter of CLR into you dishwasher and run through 3 full cycles.

N.B. Vinager is preffered as it's non-toxic.


Other possible issues:

hard water, lime/sediment buildup in hot water tank, not using rinse-aids like "jet-dry"

its a lime buildup.go to an industrial cleaning supply wharehouse (maybe home depot-lowes),and get delime.you can go to a supermarket and buy c.l.r. (calcium lime remover) but if its real bad you need a stronger delime.simply put the delime in the unit and run it through a cycle.you may have to do this more then once to get rid of the scale.then once a month use a cup full of delime depending on the hardness of the water.
