    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    If water accumulates in a normal dishwasher and both clean and unclean plates are washed in it, then all those plates become napak (impure). It is not permissible for Muslims to eat in such a plate, and if they wash it separately with the pressure of tap, i.e., they wash it with clean water, then those plates are pure. You can eat halal food in it.
