Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

How do you clean out food debris collected at the back?

\015 We got this from a friend of ours. Its portable and at the back you can see a small collection of food like substances behind a mesh. Guessing its a collector of sorts. Was like that BEFORE we got it. Wondering how one cleans that? Its the Moffat MSC3504GO1WW brand\015

Answers :

I was not able to find any specific information about the Moffat MSC3504 dishwasher. I recommend you go to this site and download the only manual that I could find for a Moffat. It may have some hints for you.\015\012
\015\012Also, if you see screws holding the mesh down, recommend you take a picture of the area and have at it!
