After the vinegar cycle, sprinkle baking soda and run. The baking soda will help further deodorize your dishwasher and help in removing any stains.

 

 

SPINNING ARM

Make sure the holes in the spinning arm are clear and open so that water can run through them freely. Use a needle nose pliers, a toothpick, or some other small pointy tool  to remove any debris that has built up in the holes of the spinning arm. Be careful not to scratch the spinning arms.
