You'll want to run an empty cycle with a product called Dishwasher Magic, which cleans out the entire dishwasher. You can purchase this product on-line or buy it at Lowes. Other than that, if you still have issue with black particles getting on the dishes, take the door apart because there is a sound dampening tar mat on the inside of the door toward the bottom. Sometimes the adhesive starts to get loose and the mat slides down and breaks up in the water at the bottom of the door. If that is the case, run a knife along the bottom of the inner door and cut the bottom inch or 2 of this sound dampening mat off and that will stop it from getting in the water.
