Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB5651A Built-in Dishwasher
When I open my dishwasher up, it smells.. How do I find and clean out the dishwasher trap? I have a portable Maytag Performance Dishwasher . Thanks, Matt
Hi I checked the manual on line. Here's what it said.
Dishwasher has an odor
Run dishes being held in the dishwasher through a Rinse Only cycle.
• Many dishwashers have a “new” smell when first installed. This will dissipate with use.
• Dishwasher may not be draining properly. (See “Dishwasher Will Not Drain” section.)
• For a strong odor, place baking soda in both sides of the detergent cup. Select Light
Wash cycle and allow the water to circulate for about 10 minutes. Interrupt the cycle
by unlatching the door and let it stand overnight. Restart the dishwasher by latching
the door and allow it to complete the cycle. Another alternative is to use a dishwasher
cleaning product such as Jet-Dry Dishwasher Cleaner*.
