Just went through this, except mine was from the late '80s (Kitchen Aid).

The residue is lime/calcium.

There are some commercial products that you can run through periodically that 
are supposed to avoid/eliminate this.  (How close are you to Willow Grove?)

I found the only solution was to replace the thing.

PS:  The only repair I needed on the Kitchen Aid in 20 years was replacing a 
hose that fed the whirly thing under the top basket.

PPS: You can save money by installing it yourself.  It is quite easy if you 
are replacing an existing one and don't have to run electricity or plumbing.
