Can I use CLR on my dishwasher?

Our Kenmore dishwasher won't drain the water out. I believe it's clogged with calcium deposits. Is it safe to use CLR to clear it out?

Thank you for submitting your question. You can use CLR on your dishwasher. Run an empty load without detergent up to the main wash cycle, (allowing enough water to fill before cycle begins to wash) and add one-half cup of CLR. Finish cycle. Run one additional cycle with water alone to “rinse setting” to rinse machine fully. Here's


on using CLR with a dishwasher. I hope this information helps. Please let me know if I can assist further. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
