It's very easy to clean your dishwasher and you should at least once a month. Recently I found a new way I hadn't been aware of. You fill the cup where the soap goes with any lemon-lime or citrus drink mix. Then let it run using only the drink mixture. It kills the germs and get rid of food particles,build up grease left behind from all of those loads of dishes. It does a great job with little effort.
I saw this on a professional cleaning show. Buying those drinks at the 99 cent store will work just fine. I had dishwashers in the past,always wiped them out. This professional cleaning company said "found nothing else that works as well" as drink mixes. Thought I'd share one I hadn't heard of before.
I now have no use for a dishwasher so I use lemon slices on my sink. Keeping the disposal up with half baking soda and half vinegar. If you eat eggs, the shells are perfect for keeping the blades sharp. If no egg shells, a 1/2 cup of ice works well, also.
