SOURCE: Dishwasher smells like pond scum

I have the SAME problem with our dishwasher. It's disgusting. Between the fishy glasses and the garlicky ice cubes (NO, we don't have garlic in our refrigerator or freezer -- purchased ice doesn't smell), I'm embarrassed to pour our guests a glass of ice water!

SOURCE: not washing dishes properly - clean filter instructions...

Would help if you give make and model number.

However it usually involves taking out the bottom assembly with the spray arm, strainer etc. and cleaning it out manually.

You also could try running it empty with a couple of cups of white vinegar - if it is grease that should clean it out. If it improves but not completely repeat it.

Also if you have a drying aid dispenser make sure it is not empty.

SOURCE: dishwasher Soap scum left on dishes

the problem is hard water. There is a new product out called The Dishwasher Filtration System. It filters the water going into your dishwasher leaving your dishes spot free with every load. It is very affordable and fits right under the sink. You will be amazed how sparkling your dishes look just after one load. You will love this product. Get it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.

Chemical odor...


Hi,

HERE ARE 10 EFFECTIVE WAYS TO REMOVE THE BAD SMELL:

1. CharcoalCharcoal is on top of my list as it is one of the best absorbent agents that can absorb and soak up the bad odour. Charcoal is also widely used as water filters and in most odour removing commercial products. You can put a medium-sized chunk of charcoal inside your smelly refrigerator for instance, and leave it there for a couple of days. You will notice that it can effectively remove the bad smell.
2. Baking SodaBaking soda is also a good absorbent. Put a generous amount of baking soda in an uncovered container (the size of the container depends on the size of the confined area) and leave it for several days. Remove the baking soda and replace it with new one and leave it for a couple of days. Continue replacing the baking soda until it has cleared the bad smell.
3. Lemon or Lime PeelJust put some lemon or lime peels into an uncovered container and leave them inside the confined area for a couple of days. The citrus smell will naturally replace the bad smell.
4. Pandan Leaf (also known as Pandanus or Screwpine)It is easy to get pandan leaf in tropical countries as it is widely used in Southeast Asian cooking to add aroma to dishes. Its pleasant aroma also acts as natural air freshener. Just take a few strips of the pandan leaves and tie them into knots. Place the leaves inside the confined space and leave them until the leaves withered or dried up. Replace the leaves regularly until the smell goes away.
5. Vanilla Essence Pour several drops of vanilla essence on a couple of cotton wools. Toss the cotton wools inside the confined space such as your wardrobe. Leave them for several days and you will notice that the area smells nice.
6. Mint Extract If you favor neither the smell of citrus nor vanilla, you can perhaps use mint extract instead. Pour several drops of mint extract on a couple of cotton wools. Toss the cotton wools inside the confined space and leave them for a couple of days.
7. Fresh Ground CoffeeGround coffee has a nice, crisp natural aroma. Just put about a cup of ground coffee in a flat, uncovered container. Place the container inside the confined space for several days. If the bad smell is extremely horrible, put more ground coffee. The area will smell of fresh coffee for many days.
8. Tea BagsIf you don't like coffee, you can use tea bags instead. Just place 2-3 tea bags inside the confined space. The tealeaves in the bags will not only absorb the bad smell but also will release the natural aroma of tea.
9. Orange and ClovesGet an orange and poke it with sharp objects like needle or fork to form small holes. Place each of the cloves inside these small holes until most of the orange surfaces are covered. It may look like a hedgehog with the cloves jutting out of the orange fruit. Leave it in the confined area for a couple of days. The area will smell nice with the said combinations.
10. Old Newspaper and Slices of BreadOld newspaper and slices of bread also work wonders in absorbing the bad odours particularly inside the refrigerator. Just place some crumpled old newspaper and two slices of bread (uncovered) inside your refrigerator and leave them for two days. Replace them (especially the bread) regularly until the bad smell is removed.

You can also use the combination of any of the above tips together, to effectively remove bad smell. Try those tips and you will say goodbye to bad smells forever.


Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

I can't remove the detergent drawer from the washing machine.


After you are finished with the wash, leave the door open. Seriously.. you NEED to leave the door open so it can air out after each wash. Just a crack will do, if you close the door and seal it, bacteria will grow and make a bad smell. Your laundry room will smell bad for awhile at first but it'll clear out after several days. If you can't stand the smell, buy a kit in the soap isle that eliminates washer odor. Remember the kit is a temp solution, leaving the door open after using the washing machine is the real fix.

My whirlpool GS6NBEXR refrigerator ice cube maker leaves slimey, flaky residue at the bottom of my glass. What can I do?


Diana, if I understand you ok, the ice you put in the glass leaves slimy residue. So that slimy stuff has to be in the ice cube. Well remove the the ice maker unit and thoroughly clean this ice holder and throw away the ice cubes in the kitchen sink and see if leaves slimy stuff. As for slimy stuff, while the unit is out, check any leaks etc. BTW any smell?

I have a very old wooden china cabinet that smells bad. How can I improve the small without keeping the glass open at all times?


My grandmother has the perfect method for getting the old woodsmell out of her china cabinet. First,you crumple up newspaper and put it between the plates for 24 hours. Supposedly, newspaper sucks up scent. The next day, place a water bottle cap filledwith vinegar on each shelf. After 24hours, the bad wood smell should be gone. To get rid of the vinegar smell, place a water bottle cap filled withvanilla extract on each shelf. Leavethat in there for 2 to 3 days and you should have a beautifully smelling chinacabinet!

The air the unit blows out sometimes smells musty/moldy. Also, if you leave say a glass of water in the path of blowing air, the glass and water will take on a bitter taste.


Sounds to me that your unit needs to be serviced take out your filters clean them. Perhaps even the evaporator coil may need cleaning.

Washed clothes still smell dirty


If you don't leave the door open after each use you will get a musty smell and mold will build up in the bellows. also you need to wipe the bellows dry and the door glass dry as to not get a build up of soap residue on it which will eventually make the door leak. Also, only use one or two tablespoons of soap, not what the soap manufacturer says on the package.

My washer a Tromm LG DLE377W leaves a bad smell in clothes after washed the smell is in the washer also smells sour


Sears has tablets for front load washers that work great. I use one every month and it has helped the stinky washer smell and the bad smell in the clean clothes. It is called Affresh and it works better than any of the cleaners you can buy in the grocery stores.
