Dishwasher Cleaning Poorly? Just Clean It, Here’s How

We all wish the dishwasher we purchased years ago would clean as well today as it did when it was new. If you notice your washer isn’t performing up to par, here are a couple things you can do to make it run and clean better. Thanks to my friends at Lifehacker, I’ve tried both, and it works!

Clean the dishwasher trap: Down in no mans land, under the lower sprayer, there’s usually a piece that is removable. Under it you’ll usually find bits of food that didn’t make it out the drain or even pet hair if you have a fur-ball of any kind running around your home. Sometimes the tray comes out fully so it can be rinsed in the sink; sometimes a towel is needed to remove the gunk build-up.

 

Clean the dishwasher seals: After a few months of use, your dishwasher accumulates a little bit of gunk and stick around the rubber gasket in the door as well and often around the soap door as well. Make sure to give them a once-over with a damp towel to keep the grime down.
