Mold, Mildew, and Odors in the Dishwasher

In order for mold and mildew to grow in your dishwasher, moisture, warmth, and a source of nutrients (such as food particles) all need to be present. Regularly cleaning and maintaining your dishwasher can help prevent mold growth and other sources of odors. The same maintenance can be used to clear away preexisting odors.
