Question about Dishwashers
My dishwasher, gets disgustingly dirty. I get black mold and pink algie in the diswaher its self. The door and all the bottom of the dishwasher always needs cleaning. The wheel for the basket even get gunkey. I have had numerous dishwashers before in the same spot and none have ever had a algie or mold build up. It is about 1.5 years old and I have the repair man here many times. He said he has never seen anything like this and replace just about everything that he could on the machine. I spend more time cleaning the dishwasher than it does dishes! Help, and thank you.
I work in a hospital and have seen this problem with our scope washers (a very sophisticated dishwasher with lots of safety features) and it turned out to be a faulty pump motor. Some pumps have black ceramic magnet in them and if it cracks it will breakdown and mix in with wash water creating a black smudge on everything with bits. Just as you described. Unfortunately, I have never taken a part a dishwasher motor so I don't know if it's the same type of motor.

You probably have a restricted water inlet valve. It is not allowing the proper rate of flow for the allotted time, therefore not giving enough water to create the proper velocity to reach the top rack.

sounds like you have an oil leak from the motor/pump assembly. this should be covered under warranty by the mfg. have a technician replace the sump assembly.

Have you tried cleaning with vinegar? Start the washer and let it get to the start of the wash cycle. Open it up and scoop out about a gallon of water from the bottom. Pour in a gallon of vinegar and let it finish the wash. May have to repeat a few times. This should get it. To keep it clean, add a few vitamin C tablets in with your detergent every few washes.
