Question
According to Ashkenazic traditions, is there a way to use a dishwasher for meat and dairy separately if, for example, it has a stainless steel tub and is never run without toxic/inedible dishwashing soap, e.g. by waiting 24 hrs. and running an empty cycle?
Answer
ב"ה Shalom Based on what you said that the dishwasher has a stainless steel tub and is never run without toxic/inedible dishwashing soap, there are indeed opinions which permit to wait 24 hours and run and empty cycle at the highest temperature. Be sure of course to clean from drain and cutlery holder any food particles. See: ילקוט יוסף איסור והיתר חלק ג, אגרות משה יור"ד ד סי' כח-כט, שו"ת שאילת שלמה חלק ה' סימן כ, ספר ואכלת ושבעת עמ1 107. All the best
