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.

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.

Moldy smell in clothes, especially towels


need to clean the bellow ( rubber around door). theres a tablet you can buy called "Affresh". It will help to remove the moldy smell. just throw it in washer and run through a regular wash cycle. no clothes, just the tablet. If there is a clean cycle on the machine then use that cycle. Whenever you're finished washing, you should leave the door open for about 20-30 minutes so unit can air out. Also you should wipe around the glass and bellow after each use.

Dryer is leaving black, grease-like marks


I know, this is a common problem with side loaders. I have an old fashioned top loader myself to avoid this trouble. First check that the seals on the door haven't come loose (around the glass window). Keep the seals cleaned out regularly, so grimy, icky, muck doesn't build up inside. When the unit is not in use, leave the door opened!

This will allow unwanted moisture to escape instead of building up in the dryer, to smelly muck.

It probably smells pretty bad too.

Hopefully this will fix your problem.

If left untreated to long this can be a very hard problem to fix. However fortunately it sounds like your unit is still under warranty. If the above fixes don't work, I would seriously recommend you have your unit professionally serviced and cleaned.

My Alpine Air XL-15 Air Purifier youst to have a


The Classic XL-15 should have 2 individual indicator lights. The 'red' light is the ionizer indicator, and the 'green' light is the ozone level indicator. Both lights should be illuminated, if the unit is operating properly. The red light should be pulsing, and the green light should be dimly lit, and brightened as the output knob is turned up - indicating a higher ozone production. If the green light is not lit, you likely won't smell the ozone. The first thing you should try, is cleaning the filter and glass ozone plate. Unplug the unit and remove the rear air filter. Clean the filter with clean water and allow to COMPLETELY air dry. Removed the glass plate by depressing the lever behind the glass plate, and gently pulling it out. Clean the glass with a half water, half ammonia (or distilled white vinegar, if ammonia not available) and an old toothbrush to clean between the mesh. Dry plate with a hair dryer and re-place plate into unit. Replace dried air filter, making sure the little tab on the bottom is secured into the interlock. Power the unit on and you should see the indicator lights and smell the fresh ozone!
