I've started finding tiny bits of foam rubber in the siverware basket when I unload the dishwasher lately. Dark grey foam rubber, sometimes with tiny deteriorated flakes of yellow backing on them. What's all that about?

Maybe the door seal on the dishwasher is coming apart?

Nope, and it's made of solid rubber, not foam rubber, anyway.

(1) Check the gasket around the edges of the dishwasher.

(2) It might have been an item that was washed before, but shed quite a bit and stuff is still being found.

I've never put anything made of foam rubber in there.

Okay, the gasket around the edges is rubber, but not foam rubber.

Is anything else missing? It might be the currency of some kind of fairy along the lines of the Tooth Fairy....

The only piece of helpful advice I can offer is that you're now #6 for search results on 'foam rubber in dishwasher'. Leverage those search results, man!

Maybe a gasket inside the dishwasher is coming apart, which will no doubt be expensive to replace. The next time you run the dishwasher check the floor carefully to make sure there are no signs of leakage.
