Re: Dish washer arms not spinning

We have very hard water... I have used gels before and have some now but still trying to find a detergent I like.

Negative. Add a teaspoon of this in your wash cycle. »www.lowes.com/pd_124762-68-63004_0__

To clean the dishes, or to clean the dishwasher itself?

Nothing I can toss in there to clean the dishwasher itself?

Vinegar. CLR or read the manual and see what it suggests.... I have not seen a manual for a dishwasher that did not have a suggestion for cleaning the inside of the dishwasher.

There is also the other citric cleaner mentioned on page 2 as well.

Already posted it twice. It cleans the dishwasher.

I was just hoping for something purchasable locally

I wonder, are all citric acid powders made the same?

No - it is not the same: "Prepares concrete for painting and staining. Citric acid powder is safer than muriatic acid"

There are a ton of cleaners - just because he had a link to one does not mean the same thing is not available locally. Just look in the grocery store where the cleaners are sold...

Chemicals can have many different and perfectly acceptable uses. I have muriatic acid that I bought at Lowes that's labeled for etching concrete -- that I use in our swimming pool to lower the pH level. I have phosphoric acid here at work that's for cleaning concrete, stone, etc that we use for cleaning stainless steel (per our chemist's recommendation).

I do understand that but personally - if the product does not mention using it for that and it etches things - I am wary of using it in the application. To know for sure they would have to check the strength of the 2 products to see how different they are.

The muriatic acid would very likely be far more diluted than the citric acid in a dishwasher which has a lot less water.

If he wants to get the 'same thing' as the product robbin linked to - then he needs to find the same type of product for the use it is intended - imho.
