    Angry Blue rubbery gunk in dishwasher

    Wife says "My dishwasher just isn't getting anything clean"

    I start looking and have found a whole bunch of rubbery blue gunk. This stuff is in every nook & cranny, thick and rubber like.

    Assuming this was the type of dish soap causing this?

    Here are some photos of what we found. I took the screen filter apart. Basically destroyed it. Each spray arm was plugged with the stuff. The dish soap is in one picture. She has been using it for a couple years.

    I read the ingredients label and see that it has a thickener. Is the thickener causing all this?

    It would appear so.
    Also check the water temp inside the d/w...min 120?F and closer to 140?F the better to dissolve the soap during the cycle.
