Dishwasher - Cleaning the Interior
A dishwasher interior is self-cleaned through normal use and operation of the dishwasher. If soap build-up does occur, the residue may be removed with a dishwasher interior cleaning product, citric acid or finish® Dishwasher Cleaner.
Options for Cleaning Interior
- finish® Dishwasher Cleaner will break up mineral deposits, and remove hard water film and stains. You can purchase this at your local grocery store or order online: WX10X10209.
- Citric acid can also be used to clean dishwashers. You can order citric acid online: WD35X151
- Use a vinegar rinse. Pour 1 cup of vinegar into the dishwasher just after the detergent cup opens, and let the dishwasher complete its cycle. This may be repeated several times a year if needed.
Caution: Avoid the use of abrasive scouring pads or harsh cleaners as they may mar the finish.
- You can remove the sump cover for cleaning on many models. For model specific information about accessing this area, check the Owner's Manual.
