1. Start by removing the various removable parts to clean them more easily in your sink: the lower basket, the upper basket, the waste filter, the salt tank cap and, if possible, the plate covering the tank (removable on some models).
You can clean them with your usual washing-up liquid or directly with a mixture of hot water and white vinegar.
2. Scrub then the door seal and the inside contours with your sponge humidified with hot water and white vinegar. This action will remove and destroy the limestone and any scale in your machine.
3. Finally, clean the machine by pouring 250ml of white vinegar into the tank of your dishwasher and run the machine empty, choosing the warmest wash cycle.
Now you know how to effectively clean your dishwasher !
