I have a Maytag MDB dishwasher. We recently took apart the spray arm assembly down to the filter to clean out the lime. The problem is that the inside of the spray arm has such a build up of lime and we cannot get inside the narrow space to scrape the lime out. How can I dissolve the lime that is inside of parts?

There is a slime that builds up on the bottom of the dishwasher. I have owned dishwashers for over 30 years and this is the first time I have ever experienced this. I have run a cycle with just vinegar but it does not help. This is the worst dishwasher I have ever owned, I should have remained with Whirlpool, it is a much better product.

We have had an LG 7810 dishwasher since 2007. There is a film always left in the bottom of the dishwasher (large area, covers most of the bottom, not just near the drain) and a moldy sludge that builds at the bottom where the door seals. We can clean it out manually, but I don't think you should have to wash the inside of your dishwasher.

Hello, my Siemens integrated dishwasher no: SE64M359GB stopped working mid-cycle with 35mins remaining. It is displaying the red tap emblem. Usually the dishwasher starts when the dishwasher door is closed fully (having pressed the power button). However, it is making a noise as soon as the power button is pressed. I have checked the water supply and pipes and they are OK. The filters are also clean and OK. We have an electric de-scaler on our system so I imagine calcium build up should n
