Question about Jenn-Air JDB1105AW Built-in Dishwasher
This dishwasher was installed in December 2008 in our new home. At first there was a very new "rubber" smell in the dishwasher and just thought because it was new it would go away. It's been 18 months and the smell is getting worse. We had two service calls before the 1 year warranty expired. One put in a refresher liquid which killed the smell for a while but it came back even worse.
What could it be?
Try running bleach thru it... place a bowl in the bottom rack with bleach in it...start with a small amount... work up to what cures it.. The vent hose may have "crud" in it.. mine stopped up..D/W stopped draining..smelled..

SOURCE: foul odor
first hting do you use a rinse agent( jet dry ?) perhaps s you're not selecting heated dry as an option.as far as the smell if its musty form water left behind,using jet dry will evaporate more of the water (a small amount on a paper towel and wipe down the inner door and walls will also decrease moisture, doenst to be done every time either on ly as needed might be once a year. if the smell is anything else id look into perhaps hoked to a garbage disposer?? smells permeate back into d/w.

Start by puting timer in heat dry for about 4 seconds and see if element got warm. If so check you rinse aid and make sure it is full. I like the turbo dry made by jet dry. If it is empty, this is your problem. about the smell, you would use a cleaner such as diswasher magic made by GE. If element did not get warm, put unit on heat dry and and test voltage at the element. 120 volts present replace element. if not check voltage at thermal fuse for 120 volts. If no voltage there replace timer.

We had similar type of problem (as well as residual water always left in bottom) and after pulling out the dishwasher, found that the drainage tube was incorrectly installed by contractor. It was laying on the floor behind it with a only a slight rise to the garbage disposal inlet. I suspect this contributed to sewer odors as well a water back flowing into the dishwasher. I disconnected drainage tube so that it went up 24+" and then connected to garbage disposal (creates a loop that blocks sewer odors and back flow conditions). I also cleared out the filter at bottom of inside the dishwasher. The Use & Care Guide suggested using baking soda in China/Crystal mode for 10 minutes, opening the front door and letting it sit overnight. I repeated that for 3 nights and it did clear up the remaining odor. Don't know if this will help your issue or not. Good luck!
