Kenmore elite dishwasher has black sludge


... Dishwashers

I have a three-year-old Sears Kenmore Elite dishwasher. I find that despite the fact that we scrape and rinse our dishes before loading the machine, after each three months of use (two loads a day) or so, I have to take the machine apart (spray tower, racks, bottom impeller, bottom screen housing, food grinder cover) and clean-out the food grinder area, for it fills-up with sludge.

My 6 year old Kenmore Elite DW has started leaking and has a musty smell. The dishes are clean but food residue is left on the inside door and black gunk builds up on the bottom of the dishwasher.

Kenmore elite dishwasher runs until it is manually shut off by opening the door? My Kenmore Elite runs continuously until I manually drain (cancel) the cycle.
