There is a stale smell inside the dishwasher. How do I clean the inside of the dishwasher to get rid of that smell?


Try dishwasher cleaner (Finish is one brand). Available at Sears, Home Depot and most hardware stores. Follow directions on package.

I must have overloaded my juicer. It smelled funny and then just stopped.


You probably burned out the electric motor if it smelled funny. Repair would cost about the same as a new one.

There is a funny smell comign out of my dishwasher I have tried cleaners and it doesnt get rid of the smell also the washer isnt cleaning very well any suggestions to what i sould do or try?


could be one of the motors burning out or a faulty electronic valve not letting water in properly... unless you are competent working around live electrical circuits, theres probably not a lot you can do.

of course the obvious thing to check is that the water feed to the unit is not blocked and that water is flowing as it should. (do this by turning off the feed, unhooking the pipe from the unit, putting the pipe into a bucket and turning on the flow)

We just had new Rheem Natural Gas Furnace


Hello. yes there is a 2 second delay and when the conditions are just right you can smell gas. Although this is not dangerous or a health risk, you could run the exhaust pipe up in the air a few feet to get rid of the smell. Regards, Joe

Terrible smell from the washer. This is a new


do not use baking soda this will react with your detergent and leave smelly deposits and reduce the wash performance modern good quality detergents contain everything needed for a good wash result and a sweet smelling machine. try a hot wash with detergent and an empty load to get rid of smell.

SMELLS FUNNY, AND LEAVES RESIDUE ON DISHES


your dishwasher may just need a good cleaning. dump in two cups of cheap vinegar and run it on its hottest longest cycle, no soap, no dishes. When the cycle is complete the inside will be as clean as it can be and your funny smell and residue should be gone.
