How to fix a clogged dishwasher

Tami from Lansing, Michigan was beside herself when a repairman told her that she would have to replace her relatively new dishwasher. “Hello CLR!!! I'm a believer! My dishwasher quit working. I called a repairman. He said that it was clogged with dishwasher detergent and was hopeless. He told me to just buy a new one. He said that I might be able to use vinegar to dissolve the buildup but it would be a long shot. I wasn't ready to just give up on my relatively new machine. So..... I went to the store and looked around at the cleaners available. I purchased CLR® Calcium, Lime & Rust Remover and poured it into my dishwasher. I then ran a cycle. To my delight and great surprise, my dishwasher was magically fixed for less than $6.00!!! THANK YOU CLR!!!”

Tami, CLR is just the product you need to keep your dishwasher running at its best. To clean your dishwasher, remove the dishwashing rinse agent and pour a 1/2 cup of CLR Calcium, Lime & Rust Remover directly into the bottom of your empty dishwasher. You can leave the racks in the dishwasher, but remove any glasses, dishes or flatware. Run a normal cycle followed by an extra rinse cycle. Make sure there are no detergents or any other chemicals in the dishwasher while using CLR.
