Clean the drain filter.
Each brand of dishwasher is slightly different. There will probably be a cylindrical, detachable filter through which all of the water drains in the bottom of the dishwasher. Consult your owner’s manual if in doubt.
In order to access the filter, remove the bottom rack, then reach in and twist out the filter.
Wash the filter with soap and hot water in your sink. It may be difficult to reach all of the interior sections of it with a rag, so you may want to use a bottle brush. Replace the filter in the dishwasher.
Wash the inside of the door and the interior walls.
Use a natural all-purpose cleaner or you can use white vinegar on a microfiber cloth,
Place 1 cup of distilled white vinegar in the top rack of the dishwasher.
Make sure the dishwasher is empty when you clean it in this way. If you don’t like the smell of vinegar, add a few drops of an essential oil to the vinegar.
Run the dishwasher on the longest cycle. Stop it midway through the cycle and let the vinegar water sit for 30 minutes. Set a timer to remind you to go back.
Restart the cycle and let it finish
Sprinkle a cup of baking soda over the bottom of the dishwasher.
Run an additional cycle.
This time run the dishwasher on the shortest cycles available, in order to dissolve all of the baking soda The water should be the hottest it can be. After this, the dishwasher should be clean and fresh smelling.
