A dishwasher is one of the main appliances that you use, so shouldn’t you be giving it the attention it needs to stay clean? We clean the rest of our 

appliances when they get dirty -- the food out of the bottom of the oven, the microwave after we have soup boil over. But did you know that you should be cleaning your dis

hwasher about once a month? Even if your plates are coming out shining and clean, you can start to smell a foul odor. This is because of the bacteria and mold growing in different spots around your dishwasher.

The door gasket and the drain filter can both be spots that odor-causing bacteria can grow. The drain filter is usually the common part of the dishwasher that collects odor, but an article from Sears says that the door gasket can also create odors:

“The door gasket is the black rubber tubing that lines the opening of the dishwasher. The gasket has a magnetic strip on the inside to help it cling to the dishwasher door frame and prevent water from leaking out during cycles. Sometimes, food particles that get washed off dishes during the cleaning cycle get stuck on the sides of the gasket, so the gasket may need to be wiped down every now and then with a damp cloth or paper towel.”
