How to clean your Dishwasher
The vinegar will help to wash away the loose, greasy grime, sanitizes, and helps remove the musty odor.
Put washer through a full wash on hottest water setting. Turn the heat dry off, don't need to do that.
Now run the washer through a cycle again.
It will now be clean and fresh! Very easy!
Run the garbage disposal before starting the dishwasher. The dishwasher drains into the same pipe as your sink, so that drain must be clear.
Run full loads to conserve water and energy, but don’t pack dishes too tightly. Dishwashers wash dishes by spraying water over them, so the water needs to be able to get to the dishes to clean them.
If you are inclined to pre-wash your dishes before you put them in the dishwasher, consider this. Dishwasher detergent NEEDS a certain amount of grease and dirt in order to do its job. Otherwise, it actually foams up during the cycle which is not good for your dishwasher.
