What is really inside your "clean" dishwasher... Was I in for a big surprise... I was just about to put away all the clean dishes in the dishwasher when I noticed that our dishwasher is not fully drained. I wanted to figure out how to unclog it, so I decided to dive into a cloudy day adventure..
What Is REALLY Inside Your "Clean" Dishwasher
So here I go at 11:00am, after finding the right tools that were needed, I plunged right in...
Successfully unscrewed all the parts
But it took me forever to take this piece apart (below right). By the way, when they say to be careful when disconnecting the long pipe from the piece below because the tiny flap can easily break off because it is delicate, IT IS TRUE, mine broke, so BE CAREFUL!
After taking everything apart.... this is what is REALLY inside your "clean" dishwasher... all these debris stuck (hidden) in the supposedly clean dishwasher, YUK!!!
But after all that work in disassembling all the parts, the drain is still clogged!
So I decided to use a wet vac...
Nothing visible seems to be blocking the drainage pipe....
So I tried pouring water down the drain several times and sucking the water out with Wet Vac, but NO LUCK, still STUCK!
At 2:30pm, I needed to pack up and pick up kids. At least I ended up with a sparkling dishwasher!
........that does not drain.. ?
See the food deposit close to the front of the door? That's a telltale sign that your dishwasher is not draining properly, I learned it the hard way!
So what to do?... I shall call 1-800-dishwasher buster!

I studied these two youtube videos: GE Profile Dishwasher Maintenance and Dishwasher Maintenance And Cleaning.
It turned out that all I had to do was run the dishwasher in a regular cycle to drain the water. Thanks to a wise fried ; ) our dishwasher is running much smoother than before AND totally spotless!
.....really amazing, the power of youtube... you can do anything... ok, maybe almost anything... ; )
