I understand you want to know how to remove large food particles that are trapped in your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EWDW6505GB0. First, I would suggest that you scrape away large pieces of food before putting any dish in your dishwasher.
Your dishwasher is equipped with a state of the art wash system. Periodically, the Glass Trap Filter and Large Food Particle Trap may need to be cleaned to maximize wash performance. The Glass Trap Filter is located in the center of the Large Food Particle Trap. The Glass Trap Filter is designed to collect pieces of broken glass, straws, bones and pits. To remove items in the Glass Trap Filter, grasp the handle, lift out, empty and replace. Hope this is helpful.
Spray a stream of bleach-type cleaning solution (Clorox Clean-up, or bleach and water mix) between the inner and outer tub at the top rim. Run a soak cycle with water and bleach (full load water level setting). I haven't looked at the manual for your washer, so if it doesn't have a soak cycle, start a normal cycle, stop it after a minute of agitation, then let the washer sit for at least an hour before starting it again.
Sometimes the particle traps at the water inlets get a bacterial film growing on them. Turn off the water to the machine, remove the hoses and clean off the trap screens. If there is a film, put the hoses in a bucket and turn the water on to flush them out. This will help prevent the return of the odor.
Well, this is kind of a big job. you need to disassemble all around the pump and clean screens. Also, clean discharge ports on the spray arms.
Really, dishwahsers do a poor job of removing food, and so plates should be pre rinsed.
You have to remove the sprayer arm, it's cover, and the cover underneath that located on the bottom of the dishwasher, inside the dishwasher. If you find a large amount of grease/food under these covers then you are not rinsing your dishes enough before placing in the washer.
The disposal unit in these units are nothing more than a cheap metal blade spinning over a metal grate. Anything tougher than a piece of cake and it's frosting runs the risk of breaking the gears that drives this.
Clean all the food/grease that you can access. Be careful while removing the gunk, I have found glass shards from broken dishes. Locate the disposal impeller and screen. It can be removed. Inspect it for damage and reinstall after cleaning.
Your water flow can be restricted if this is plugged.
make sure that when you replace your filter that there is no obstruction in the filter thread(small stone), i have had many problems with this,if the drain light keeps comming on then check the waste pipe stand.
Step1: Use the diagrams in the manual to locate the food trap. Remove the top
of the food trap and empty out any debris inside. If there is standing
water in the bottom of the dishwasher, watch to see if the water level
recedes after you do this. Replace the top of the food trap.
Step2: Use the diagrams in the manual to locate your dishwasher's drain hose.
You should see this under the sink. Check both connections to see if
there is any water dripping, which is a sign of a possible drain-hose
clog. Check the outside of the hose for any visible bulges. If the hose
is broken or decayed, you will need to replace it.
Step3: Clean out any food or debris that is trapped within the pump assembly.
Reassemble the pump unit and reinstall it in your dishwasher, following
the instructions in your manual..
You probably don't need to go to this guy's extremes (but he's thorough!). You probably just need the part about how to clean the strainer and bottom of the washer. I think this'll help. There are other videos, some selling products (that I haven't used). Also some of the videos are helpful, you'll just need to take a look. Once you've cleaned the goo, you can help it clean with just one cup of white vinegar and hot water occasionally. Also, use the least amount of detergent that you can, and still get your dishes clean.
