MOLD building on inside of dishwasher

\015 I use all the recommended "Jet Dry" materials I was informed by the company and also have been using the HEAT part of washing my dishes. A black mold has started to build up on the inside....very unhealthy I would think? HELP...Just had the repair man out and found that everything is in working order......thanks\015

Answers :

Are your dishes comming out dry at the end of the dry cycle and during dry cycle do you see steam comming out of the vent
I just found black mold and mildew gooey stuff in my dishwasher tonight. I took the racks out to see why my dishes are coming out dirtier than when I \011put them in. That is when I discovered the black mold and mildew. I use my dishwasher daily, and just a month ago, I used a dishwasher cleaner by Cascade I believe. I am totally mystified how mold can grow when I use it daily, dries thoroughly, and vents are clear. This is new to me. Now I am just trying to figure out how the rollers go back on my top rack so I can get it back in~! I'm going to have my home checked for black mold. My water faucet in the kitchen is a "pull out spray faucet", and I shined a flash light in the faucet when it was pulled out, and it is full of mold too. If you find a solution, please let me know!! Good luck!!

We have had an LG 7810 dishwasher since 2007. There is a film always left in the bottom of the dishwasher (large area, covers most of the bottom, not just near the drain) and a moldy sludge that builds at the bottom where the door seals. We can clean it out manually, but I don't think you should have to wash the inside of your dishwasher.
