Foam on bottom of Frigidaire Dishwasher after running bleach through.

I just ran bleach in my Frigidaire dishwasher to clean it. when I opened the door there was a lot of foam on the bottom and still a very strong smell of bleach. I ran a "Rinse Only" cycle and the smell went away, but the foam was still there. Is this an indication of a problem? If not, is it safe to resume normal use?

For what it's worth, I read that you should set a cup full of white vinegar in the bottom rack and run the washer through a cycle, after the bleach cycle.
Also, you should not let the washer go through the dry cycle when using bleach.

I did the vinegar thing a couple days ago and it didn't remove all of the stains, which is why i did the bleach. I read that you shouldn't mix bleach and vinegar, which is why I'm a little hesitant to do it again right away. I assume that the foam is still some remnants of bleach.

Also, the bleach did run through the dry cycle. So hopefully the reason for not using the dry cycle isn't too serious.
