Why do I keep getting mildew build up in my dishwasher?

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 665.17533202. I keep getting black mildew build up inside my entire dishwasher. I run it at least every other day if not daily. I always use the Smart Wash cycle. I have tried many different cleaners but nothing seems to work. Is there something that I am doing wrong or is there something wrong with the machine itself? I have never seen a dishwasher get like this. How do I get rid of the mildew and prevent it from returning?

I have the same exact issue - had to reconfigure my drainage line as suggested by service man - use "machine cleaner" , rinsing agents, hard water agents, do all that and the problem reoccurs...one interesting thing the service guy said is that the newer machines have a small separate pump for drainage compared to older models - all said and done, I
still have to resort to a "bleach wash" every month - have had a good many machines over the years but NEVER run into this problem before...have to think it's a design/mechanical defect
