Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15932 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Bad Smell I run my dishwasher at least every other day. I've noticed lately it smells....kind of like rotten eggs? Is there a filter that needs to be cleaned out? If so, where is it located and how can I do this? We have soft water running through the dishwasher and water doesn't sit in the bottom. Please help.

Start your dishwasher with no dishes in it.
Let in run until it takes on water and start washing.
Then open the door and pour in 8 oz of white vinegar and let it finish the cycle.
If this does not correct the smell...purchase the AFFRESH product and use that.

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!

I wash the DW with finish DW cleaner.All items smell rotten eggs


Try running a wash with a couple of caps of baby sterilising fluid. If the d/w is connected directly to the sink, remove the spigot and check there aren't any blockages. I run a dishwasher cleaner thru my d/w every 3 months and every couple of week I will load the machine for a wash, add tab to dispenser and just after starting a 65 degree wash, I will open the door and tip in approx one capful of sterilising fluid.
Good luck
baby fluid also good as a sluice wash for your washing machine on 90 degrees (w/m empty, approx every 4 weeks).

My dishwasher smells like rotten eggs. Help!


Had a similar problem and started looking around inside the door. I tried to figure out how to remove the plastic air vent cover on the inside of the door (left side). I couldn't figure out how to remove it. So, we purchased a dishwasher cleaner at Lowe's ($4) and tired running it through the machine to see if it would correct the odor problem. It didn't. Somehow the "little lady" did manage to remove it (used a damn table knife of all things) twisted and popped the plastic air vent off. When it was removed she found the obvious problem, black foul smelling mold was growing under the plastic air vent that was radiating its terrible smell into the kitchen through the dishwasher door kitchen side vent . She cleaned the inside vent and the odor problem has left. I guess I'll never live this down, but I must admit that my wife solved the problem. Try this solution and see if it solves your problem. Let us know how you make out!

I have a portable ge dishwasher. during the wash cycle there is a rotten egg smell too it


hELLO THERE
This smell is due to food particales that are under the screen(s) in the machine or in the sprayer arms them selves or in the filters in the system so what i would do is to inspect all screens and clean them really good and if they can come out take them out AND THEN USE A HALF BOTTEL OF LEMON JUICE AND DUMP INTO THE MACHINE AND RUN THE MACHINE WITHOUT ANY DISHES THRU THE ENTIRE CYCLE
THEN CHECK ALL THE SCREENS AGAIN AND THEN THE FILTERS AND THE SPRAY ARMS AND CLEAN AS NECESSARY
ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

clean out the food traps in the bottom, assuming the unit has some sort of filter.
then run a cup of bleach in the unit with no dishes. you might need to do this once or twice.
make sure you use fresh bleach.
most bleach dies in strength after only 2 weeks. it will still smell like bleach to some degree, but it will have little effect. most bleach manufacturers add 'scents' to the bleach to hide the degradation characteristics of bleach.
also, you may have a partially blocked air gap.
to determine this, check for water remaining in the bottom of the tub after it drains. left over water will contribute to odor, and negate any sterilization you dishwasher might otherwise try to do.
good luck
