How do I clean the residue from.the bottom of whirlpool dishwasher 10431031a


Use a dishwasher cleaning product and run the normal cycle without dishes or dishwasher tablets/powder. The dishwasher cleaning product will get in and around all of the pipework especially behind the scenes and breakdown the grease and lime scale build up. Depending on how often your dishwasher is used, you may have to repeat this every two weeks or once a month.

Hope this helps

Whirlpool dishwasher model GU2275XTVQ1 cleans poorly on top only


Check your hose, pump and all water lines for lime scale build up. Sometimes if you dont use some kind of lime away product every few months your machine will/can get lime scale build up from hard water causing it to not properly dispense the water through out your machine. You can also try to run a load with no dishes and no soap but put just lime away in your machine. It might just clear any clogs you might have or starting to get.

I would like to clean off the calcium deposits that are in the dishwasher. How can I do this or what product should I use.


there are few things you can do to remove the calcium deposits.....

Change the detergent you use. Powdered dishwasher detergent is more efficient in removing grease and oil than gels. Decreasing the gunk left on surfaces may help slow lime scale buildup.


Put a quart of vinegar or lemon juice in the bottom of an empty dishwasher and run it up to the "dry" cycle once a month to keep up with accumulating scale. Extended exposure to mild acid and hot water dissolves most scale.


Clean circulator arms with vinegar or lemon juice and a vegetable brush or toothbrush. Let the acid sit on the scale before scrubbing. Use a needle or hat pin to pierce clogged holes, then rinse by running a cycle with vinegar.


Use plain salt or baking soda to scour surfaces with a sponge or rag. Rinse with boiling water or run a cycle with an empty dishwasher. Do not run the dry cycle.

    Not cleaning well


    the bottom spray arm just pulls up how ever you need to try and put some lime away in the dishwasher and run an empty cycle for a while.this may need to be done two to three times.
    there are also products that can be purchsed from you local home improvement store or parts store that can assist with the removal of lime and scale build y up.once you start the dishwasher with what ever kind of scale remover there is let it run for about 10 to 15 minutes then shut it off for the same amount of time and then restart and let finish the cycle

    Clogged water dispenser in Bosch dishwasher


    Hi, Logmanup (slight bouts with dyslexia, sorry)

    By "spinning water dispensers", I assume you mean the spray arms, right? OK... if they are getting clogged with debris it would be nice to know what kind of debris. Pieces of broken glass? Plastic? Lime scale? Iron? And yes, when they get clogged they won't rotate, won't allow pressurized water through and therefore won't clean the dishes.

    For the purpose of this solution, I'll assume that there are little white particles clogging up the jets on the spray arms. This indicates hard water and lime scale build up.

    Other than completely disassembling the entire motor/pump assy. (you really don't want to go there), the best way to clear this out of the system is to use an over the counter chemical called Dishwasher Magic or something similar. If the lime scale build up is really bad (and it sounds like it is), use a couple of bottles to start with and follow up with a bottle per month thereafter.

    As an aside... If I assumed correctly about the lime scale build up, that means that it's also affecting other appliances as well. Mainly, your hot water heater. If you haven't done it before, please read this to perform maintenance on it. And a product something like this for your washing machine.

    I hope this was helpful. Let us know if this works or not. If not, please write back and we'll go a little deeper.

    Dishwasher


    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.
