Here are a few tips that helped us with our dishwasher's efficiency

    Great tips. Sometimes I've just dumped a cup of bleach down the inside where it goes to the drain. Don't know how effective it is. These ideas sound great. Next time I'm using vinegar and baking soda like I do on my kitchen drain every so often.

    I take my dishwasher apart when/if I notice bits of food stuck on dishes... The bottom of my dishwasher doesn't have mud like the one shown in the photo, but the plastic cover for the garbage disposal portion of the washer gets covered with strings

    DO NOT use a metal scraper such as the one in the picture! Plastic will also work but so will some vinegar/baking soda paste, a rag and some good 'ol elbow grease. The water here in Tucson is full of minerals and lime that build up inside of all
