Question about Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher
I have recently noticed my dishes not being dry when the cycle is done. There is also quite a bit of mildew starting to grow on the silverware tray and around the door seal. Any ideas what might be causing this and how to fix it? My dishes don't dry by the end of the cycle and there is a slimy black substance (mold or mildew?) around the seals, in the silverware basket and around the inside. I have scrubbed it away, but it keeps coming back. Is there something wrong with my dishwasher?
I totally agree with Solution #1. We have a Whirlpool (apparently Maytag is the same) and it gets moldy 2 days after it has been run. The maintenance guy came out and said we had to use the rinse cycle every day. For an $800 dollar dishwasher (which is less than 1 year old!) I expect more.

I've been researching Whirlpool issues for awhile now and the solution would appear to be not to ever buy anothere Whirlpool appliance.
Most of the dishwasher they've put out have broken down in one way or another within the first 3 years. Some start fires. Lawsuits, website complaints, calls, letters, NOTHING seems to change their policy as to simply have one of their repair people come out and offer to fix it for nearly the cost of the unit.
This mildew issue is fairly common...ditch it. Get a new one. Avoid Whirlpool. Don't believe me? Try calling them to fix or replace it.
I sincerely hope it works out for you one way or the other.
