Dishwasher builds up stinky water in the bottom between use

I run one dishwasher load about every 5-7 days. It runs fine, drains fine but during the 5-7 days in between stinky water backs up into the dishwasher and sits there. Then, I run it again and it is again drained and fine until the build up occurs over time again. What is this?

Water in the dishwasher - stinky


The bottom of your dishwasher should have a big screen in the bottom that covers the drain. The screen and the drain may need cleaning. They can get clogged with grease and stuff over time. I would recommend taking out the screen and cleaning it with soap and water, cleaning out the drain if there is anything in it, and then running the dishwasher with a dishwasher cleaner solution.

It sounds like you have a frozen drain. google your specific model on how to take the freezer panel off and take a turkey baster full on hot water and run it down the drain line unitl it clears. Once its clear if you have a calrod heater (it will look like an electric bake element on an oven) take a piece of heavy copper wire (ground wire for a recepticle) and run it down the drain line about an inch and a half. This will conduct heat from the element down the drain line during a defrost cycle and help prevent the problem for happenening again.

let me know if this helps

are you on a well??
do you use bleach in with your whites??
some well water untreated can cause exceptionally stinky machines, especially if no or very little bleach is used during white washing..
usually if you use bleach in with your whites in normal amounts and leave the door open in between uses there should be very little stinky odor or mold growth.
the mold growing on the gasket is a sign of to little bleach or none being used, and/or a really damp environment for the unit to reside in.
they do make several cleaners designed just for stinky front loader washers..
they might help..
i've been using a front loader for 13 years, leave the door ajar between uses, and use bleach in every white load and have had no issues with stinky unless i or someone else doing wash forget and close the door for a couple days, then it gets stinky but goes away after white load with bleach and hot water..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

Once my dishwasher completed the cycle there is no water but after two or three days the bottom of the dishwasher fills with the dirty water. what could be the reason? I have garbage disposal and one pipe...


You must have your dishwasher connected directly to the garbage disposal and not through an air gap. What is happening is when you disposal fills with water it is siphoning through the drain hose back to the dishwasher. If you sink has a spare hole on the deck install air gap and run dishwasher drain through air gap first. Otherwise make sure you run Garbage disposal often so that water does not get slowed and build up inside.

Kitchenaid dishwashes makes wining noise during wash


It sounds as if there is something in the bottom part of the dishwasher arm (it sprays the water around the bottom of the dishwasher). I would suggest that you take out the baskets and then remove and clean all of the parts that water comes out of as well as the bottom drain. If this works or does not, I would also suggest that you run an empty load using 1/4 cup vinegar. Hope this helps!

Dishwasher Not Draining


In many cases the connection were the dishwasher connects to the disposal or sink trap will become stopped up with a build-up from materials from the dishwasher. With the dishwasher turned off disconnect the drain hose from the washer and sink connection. run an object through the connection going to the trap or disposal ( after shutting off power to disposal and clean out build-up. Shouldn't take over 30 min.
