dishwasher and hard water- limeaway?
My dishwasher is a GE triton about 5 years old. Our water is extremely hard. My dishes aren't coming clean. I ran limeaway through a couple of times and got a bunch of crud out. It's a real pain though. Is there a better way short of installing a water softener? Any detergent better than others for hard water? Will lime away hurt my dishwasher? When I remember, I pour a little vinegar in the rinse cycle. Where do I find citric acid to clean it out with? If I must get a new dishwasher, what do you recommend? On a budget of $700 or less.
