Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB1050REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
I use all the recommended "Jet Dry" materials I was informed by the company and also have been using the HEAT part of washing my dishes. A black mold has started to build up on the inside....very unhealthy I would think? HELP...Just had the repair man out and found that everything is in working order......thanks
Are your dishes comming out dry at the end of the dry cycle and during dry cycle do you see steam comming out of the vent

I just found black mold and mildew gooey stuff in my dishwasher tonight. I took the racks out to see why my dishes are coming out dirtier than when I put them in. That is when I discovered the black mold and mildew. I use my dishwasher daily, and just a month ago, I used a dishwasher cleaner by Cascade I believe. I am totally mystified how mold can grow when I use it daily, dries thoroughly, and vents are clear. This is new to me. Now I am just trying to figure out how the rollers go back on my top rack so I can get it back in~! I'm going to have my home checked for black mold. My water faucet in the kitchen is a "pull out spray faucet", and I shined a flash light in the faucet when it was pulled out, and it is full of mold too. If you find a solution, please let me know!! Good luck!!

First, remove the mold!
If you wash infrequently, and you do not allow the DRYING cycle to work, then you may have water left in the Dishwasher basin after running a load. If the water remains in the basin, and the door is closed, then mold will form! Use the DRYING cycle. Or if you don't want to use the DRYING cycle, leave the door open for awhile after each load to allow light in, and moisture out!
If you do use the DRYING cycle, ensure that a small amount of "Steam" is coming from the vent at the top of the Door.
Hope this helps!
