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 egg smell/sewage smell in restaurant


check for dead rodents in the ceiling. Have a plumber check for blocked /leaking drains especially around the dish washer drains . If you have had pest exterminators in lately then something may have taken the bait . IT will be best to get in professionals to remove the smell as quickly as possible as to customers a smelly restaurant is equal to bad hygiene and food poisoning.

Car runs ok, but gets hot and rotten egg smell comes out of the exhaust


If car runs okay with egg smell, its normal and working the way it should, if car is running poorly and the rotten egg smell has gotten worse, its a sign that your exhaust catalytic converter will need to be replaced. good luck!

the rotten egg smell is a catalytic convertor going bad. here are a few symtoms.--- you should notice a drop in power and also a higher running temperature,also at night you may notice a slight glow from this thing if its heating up,it will also loose power ,on any kind of a hill or small incline it may idle rough from time to time also,there are several warning signs of one going bad ,if your in doubt about it,you can have it checked,they can drill a hole in it and check the back pressure on it,this will tell you if its going bad,this is actually the best way to check it out. have a good day !!

The washing machine smells like rotten eggs on the rinse cycle. The clothes also smell afterwards as well. What can I do to resolve this?


Rotten egg stench is caused by sulphur content in the water or building up over time in your water heater. It can also build in a water system that is rarely run. Have you noticed this smell from other taps in your house? There are inline charcoal filters that can remove it from the water, or you can also try removing the water lines from the washer and running them awhile.

Is this new, or has it been happening for awhile?

Fumes is coming out of the exhuust. strong smell, what to do.


If it is a strong smell of gas it could be your fuel pressure regulator going bad. If you have not changed the air filter lately it could be as simple as the engine not getting the correct amount of air mixture with the fuel. It could also be your converter clogging up and that is not good because that usually is the most expensive part.
