First, pull the bottom rack out and examine the drain area; make sure there are no hard chunks that can plug the drain, cause damage to the pump, or scratch dishes. You’d be surprised at what dishwasher repair people find….bones, crab shells, chips of glass, even pieces of gravel.
Second, place a dishwasher-safe cup filled with white vinegar on the top rack of the dishwasher. Using the hottest water possible, run the dishwasher through an entire cycle. Except for the cup of vinegar, the dishwasher needs to be completely empty. The vinegar will help wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitize, and remove odors.
Finally, after using the vinegar to sanitize the inside of your dishwasher, sprinkle a cupful of baking soda around the bottom of the tub and run it through a short but complete cycle, once again using the hottest water. The baking soda will remove any odors, and remove any stains.
Optional: If you have problems with mold and mildew, add 1/2 to 1 cup bleach in the bottom of the dishwasher and run another full cycle. (DO NOT use bleach if you have a stainless steel interior.)
Follow these three easy steps and your dishwasher will be squeaky clean!
