We had a similar problem... now once a month we run a cycle with 1/2 clup of bleach... then we run a cycle with just water, then we run a cup of vinegar on the third cycle... That has stopped the smell for us... if we go a few months without doing this it starts to smell again...

Hope this helps

Burnt plastic smell (per tenent) during dry cycle. I saw no melted parts on heating coil. Where to look next?

Hello Jon, thank you for your post!
Based off what you have described the Frigidaire dishwasher is giving off a burnt smell. You may need to check under the dishwasher to verify all the components are in proper working order. The element may have touched the tub or spray arm and this may have caused the smell. I would suggest having a professional technician out to your home for proper diagnosis and repair. Hopefully this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Why is the dishwasher smelling like electric burning and smoke coming out of the door vent?

Hi friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire dishwasher is giving off an electric burning smell and you are seeing smoke coming out of the door vent. It could possibly be an issue with your control panel or door vent, both have electrical components inside of them. Since it could be either one of these underlying issues I would recommend having a technician come out to your home and diagnose and repair the dishwasher. Hope this helps. -Matt

How do you clean filter on fridgidaire gallery dishwasher

Hello Friend, this is Z. That's a great question!

Typically the filter can be removed for cleaning by simply grasping the handle and lifting it up. Once you empty the filter, you may wash it with warm soapy water. It is best to allow the filter to dry before placing back. Hope this helps! Please reconnect if you need further assistance.

Rotten smell.used cleaning products. still smells

I had the same problem. I was using Cascade packs (don't remember which kind) and it was moderate. Switched to Finish gel packs and it got really bad.
My husband has a very sensitive nose and he mentionned that there was detergent smell mixed with the rotten smell. He suggested switching back to the good old powder (Cascade).
After 1 wash it was much better and after 2 washes, the smell went away completely.
Hope this helps!

Dishwasher is running and emitting a weird odor that is filling the downstairs of our home- smells like sharpies?

You could have a problem, maybe something has plugged and is causing stress on a pump motor (wash cyc) or drain pump... something stuck in discharge baffle unit must be removed for easy axcess to said assembly.

Smelly washer

What finally worked for me was a cup of dishwasher powder, the kind that goes into an automatic dishwasher. Don't know why, but that was the only thing that ever worked!
