Dry out completely, wear rubber gloves, wipe down all surfaces with liquid bleach, allow to air out completely then use a sponge with vanilla essense dropped into it to give a nice odour back to your fridge, if after all this the smell returns then it may have infiltrated the evap coils in the freezer, you will have to remove the internal back cover & flush with warm water & bleach.

Brand new Amanda dryer and it smells like fish. Can you give us some idea why


This sounds like it could be a unit that was flooded with stale water. This is often seen after major hurricanes or flooding, such as we saw in Houston recently.

Stink-ola!


I would call out Maytag as it looks as if an insulator on the motor is burning out.

Or a connector is overheating

Get it checked in case you have a fire

Fish odor


I turned off my frig and washed it out with soapy water, then I went over it and cleaned it out with lemon and vinegar. I let it sit open for one day. It did not work. As soon as I plugged in the frig it was smelling like shrimp again. Then I put two round cake pans FILLED with ground coffee and crumbled up news paper lightly sprayed with water and let it sit for two whole days. It WORKED. My frig does not smell like shrimp or fish any more. It smelled like coffee but it will go away in a couple of days and your frig will smell good.
