A good method is to dump a couple cups of vinegar at the bottom of the dishwasher and run an empty load on the hottest setting. The vinegar should help to clean off any grime and scale.
Thanks, I will try this.
@Dotty Albright there have been a few posts here on this subject, Here are couple I found;
Good luck and let us know what works for you.
These are all interesting---will defiantly try this.
I use vinegar like HomeSpot HQ suggested, but I also use a paperclip and clean each little hole on the arms of the sprayers (the stuff that comes out of those is nasty).
There is a lint trap some where in your Dishwasher clean it. It should lift out unless itis stopped up. Then you will need to carefully get it out. Also I went to the manufactures installation and guide lines page and vinegar like Homespot is what you use to clean it. Wipe down the sides and if you have a gasket with gentle dish soap. It mildews. Don't use anything like bleach or anything harsh.
Make sure the water is hot before the dishwasher starts. It helps it to start off that way.
using white vinegar in the rinse dispenser instead of those commercial products,...saves money and removes spots!
ok all have been useful ,I had all troubles above & tried everything,vinegar is the right answer
vinegar and run it with no dishes
I even use vinegar in my he washer in the fabric softener area. if towels or clothing are mildewy, I put it inside also, and it doesn't smell like vinegar afterwards
I fill a glass 2 C measuring cup with white vinegar. Sit it securely on the top rack and then run a cycle. (turn off the heat dry). You will not believe your eyes when you open that door. ;) !!
I have tried everything to clean the inside of my dishwasher short of using a steel wool to cleanoff the crud. I talked to my appliance repair man and he asked what DW detergent do I use? He recommended using the Cascade Premium that come in packets. I did and using the hottest water possible I ran a cycle it became shiny clean - looked like new!
