Question about Dishwashers
We have had our dishwasher for about 5 years and in the last two months it has been growing mold everywhere. We cleaned it out and within a week it was back. The mold is even in the sprayer arms. I noticed that the steam is not coming out of the vent anymore but the vent is not clogged. Plus this dishwasher has an airdry feature which means that it would not vent anyway. Have you ever heard of a dishwasher growing mold like this?
go to the grocery store there with the dish detergent is a product call dishwasher magic or jet dry has a dish washer cleaner as well. follow instruction on bottle to clean the dishwasher then switch to powder soap only use half of whats recomened on the box

SOURCE: mold growing on dishes
Recommend that you run another cycle with no DW soap aded, waiting until the dishwasher has filled with hot water and begins to do the first wash cycle. Then add 1/2 cup of bleach to the water and close the door. Allow the cycle to finish. Run it normally with a standard load of dirty dishes. Note: These high efficiency dishwashers count on the "dirt" of the dirty dishes to help wash/clean the dishes. Recommend you not rinse/wash the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.
Watch for any occurrence of the black dots and repeat the bleach treatment.
