Believe it or not your dishwasher needs to be cleaned regularly (once or twice a year). I know this sounds odd because hey it is a dishwasher shouldn’t it clean itself each time it cycles. This is not true.

Using a brush and hot water to knock off any of the big stuff. Don’t use soap because when you run a cycle the dishwasher may over suds and leak in the floor.

Fill a bowl with white vinegar and place it on the top shelf. Then run a cycle with nothing but the bowl of vinegar.

I also recommend this dishwasher cleaner especially if the vinegar doesn’t work.


Thank you,
