In my experience the gunk that collects is usually down to someone having added dishwashing liquid at some time (not a good idea)
Seconded, but don't use boiling water! If the water is hot enough then the detergent-y gunge will float to the top of the bottle. Turkey basters are also handy for getting the gunge out of the washer bottle if you don't have a 'proper' syphon - couple of quid from Tesco, job's a good'un

Unfortunately, if the pump has packed up, no amount of syphoning the crap out will bring it back to life
