  • Take out the filter in the bottom. Food gets stuck in that and doesn't always get washed away. A scrub brush or old toothbrush may take care of it.

  • Yes an empty load of bleach is a good idea. They also sell freshner for dishwashers and garbage disposals, you may want to look into one of those too.
