Question about Dishwashers
If your dishwasher has been in use for a period of time, you may need to clean the interior of the washer.
The next time you are at the grocery store, pick up (2) containers of "Tang" orange drink. With no dishes in the dish washer, fill the soap container with Tang, close the lid and poor the remaining Tang in the bottom of the dishwasher.
Close the door and run through your regular wash cycle. You may have to repeat this with the second container if it is an older model washer.
The citric acid in the Tang will clean the soap scum off the inside as well as the pump chamber inside the washer.
Good luck, it worked for me, cleaned it nice and shinny and smells good too.
