Tip & How-To about Dishwashers
You may be surprised to know you probably have "gunk" around the door seal and on the inside bottom of the door of your dishwasher. Using an old toothbrush or a soft cloth and some white vinegar or a mild cleaning product, rub around the door gasket and the edge of the door. You'll probably be amazed at the residue that you remove. You may have to wipe and wash several times to get off all the accumulation.
The reason this debris accumulates is that the water and soil seep under the seal but are not rinsed away. Because we can't see the soil, it hardens and the next time the machine is run, more soil is deposited. Eventually, the soil begins to spoil and an unpleasant odor develops.
Another trick is to GENTLY rub just under the gasket with a wooden toothpick. This will remove debris lodged under the gasket.
Cleaning the bottom and edges of the door will help to prevent unpleasant odors coming from your dishwasher.
