mo2 Posted October 8, 2012 Share Posted October 8, 2012 I was given a used dishwasher. It was rather...gross. Food stuff caked on everywhere (inside and out) and rusty racks, etc. REALLY rusty racks, like rusted completely through in spots. Well, someone traded me racks (said they weren't bothered by the rust :confused: ) so the ones I have now aren't too bad. There are a couple of rust spots but nothing terrible. I cleaned the outside of it with bleach. I ran a bottle of Dishwasher Magic through it. I ran a cycle with vinegar. I ran a cycle with baking soda. It still looks a little dingy (stains, I assume), there are rust stains on the very top of the inside of the dishwasher, one of the racks has a little rust, and there is some caked on gunk (I assume food) in the area where the door closes. I tried to clean it with bleach but I can't fit my hand in there to scrub it, and there are a lot of tiny crevices. So...Do I need to be concerned about the rust? Will it hurt us in any way? What about the food stuck around the edges of the door that I can't seem to get off? It's gross, but is it safe to assume that if it hasn't come off by now, though all those washes with various cleaning agents I used, it isn't going to? Bottom line: Would you use it?
