Washing impure dishes in the dishwasher

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If utensils that may have come in contact with alcohol are washed in the dishwasher, do we have to clean the dishwasher. Can the utensils be pure to consume. What if I run the rinse cycle in dishwasher will it be pure to wash pure utensils.


A: If you have doubts it is better that you wash it. Better still is that those napaak utensils are washed first and then placed into the dishwasher.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
