Customer Question

my dishwasher works correctly, but there is almost a dirty film inside the dishwasher. It's even in the silverware baskets. It drains correctly, but I don't know where to begin. It's gross looking.

Every few months, these dishwashers needs to be cleaned. You can try to run a cycle with a cup of white vinegar in the top rack with no dishes inside and the cup will overflow as the cycle goes on and cleans the dishwasher. That is the home remedy and it tends to work if you've kept up on cleaning the dishwasher, but since this has likely not been done and dishwasher cleaner didn't work, you'll want to get the only product that I know works. The product is called Dishwasher Magic which you can order online or you can pick it up at Lowes. This product really works well and none of these others really give any noticeable results from what I've found.
