An appliance expert has shared the hidden part of your dishwasher that you should be cleaning.

TikTok user Matthew Peech revealed the hidden secret behind your dishwasher's bottom panel.

The appliance expert filmed his own machine to give viewers a first hand look at the handy feature.

Lifting the bottom rack out of his dishwasher, Matthew examined the bottom of his machine.

He added: "Both [the filter and the screen] need regular cleaning to prevent problems."

Matthew's followers took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the secret feature.
