    Default black residue in dishwasher

    I Have a 6 year old Kitchenaid dishwasher that forms black residue inside of it. I have run it empty to try to rinse the gross stuff out but it still remains there. Looks like black mold. I don't have the model # handy but it seems like a decent unit. I had the electronic board replaced 3 years ago. When it is running it seems to be working butt the dishes also do not look clean when it finishes a cycle.

    Its likely a chopper, check valve or water pump/motor assembly problem.
