The lemon scent could be from the dishwasher detergent or a rinse aid.

Miele g1220 dishwasher displaying F14


In my case, F14 appeared when the waste pump was not be able to exctract the waste liquids. This happened because lemon kernels (that I use to remove bad smells) has clog the non return valve and the circulation pump passage way. I followed the directions from manual to clean the valve. I found about 30 lemon kernels on the bottom of the dishwasher. After the kernels removal and valve cleaning and refitting, my dishwasher operated as usual.

Tip

Garbage Disposal Smells


What can you do if your garbage disposal starts to stink up the kitchen? Because of the stuff that you put down the disposal and grind up the residue can sometimes start to create a foul odor that can be noticed in and around your kitchen. To combat this problem there are some general things that you can do and also some things that you and grind up in the disposal that will help to keep it smelling great.

One of the things that will make the disposal smell bad is if your dishwasher discharges through the garbage disposal. The food left after the water goes through will soon start to spoil and stink. Make sure that you run your disposal after the dishwasher runs to clean out the food and keep the disposal clean.

Some soft foods like meats and cooked vegetables will also tend to stick to the plate of the garbage disposal. These will cause a smell to develop after a time as they breakdown. To stop this from happening keep harder foods or foods that smell better for last to run down the disposal. This will help to clean the plate and keep the garbage disposal smelling better.

If you are going to be away for a long time, or you are having friends over and want your garbage disposal to smell good, you can use a lemon or lemons rinds. Cut up the lemon and grinds it up before you shut down the disposal. This will have your garbage disposal smelling great!!

There are also commercially produced garbage disposal cleaners, deodorizers, and degreasers, that you and buy at most grocery or hardware stores that are made specifically for this purpose.

Dishwasher leaves grit on dishes even after a full wash


Most likely need to clean your dishwasher. Yes....clean the dishwasher. Hard water builds up scale in them, and the best way to clean them is with a product called "Lemi Shine". It's actually just citric acid the same as you find in oranges and lemons, but in this case you put it in the dishwasher and run it empty. It cleans off the scale and deposits that have built up in the tub, pump, and wands. You can do the same thing with a quart or so of white vinegar, but it would take a few times to get rid of the smell. The Lemi Shine smells like lemons, so you won't need to worry about it after you use it.
Best wishes, and thanks for using FixYa!

Musty smell in maytag dishwasher


Could be the door seal needs to be replaced or you can also try a product by "Finish that cleans the pump and filter of your unit" Available at Wal-Mart for under 5.00, Also lemon juice and bleach running the dishwasher empty may help as well.

When the load is in mid-wash it smells like a fish cannery! The whols house will smell like fish. The dishes will all smell like fish. I put lemon and vinegar down the disposal and it worked for a few...


You might want to try adding a jar of "Tang" orange drink to the dishwasher and running it through a wash cycle.

Empty the washer, remove the racks.

Fill the soap dispenser with Tang and put the rest in the bottom of the washer.
Set the washer to run a normal wash cycle and when it is finished it will have cleaned out your dishwasher.
Now depending on how much debris is in the washer, you may have to do it twice.
Worked for me. Good luck.

Odor will not go away.............


hi there,

i would let you try putting a small can with charcoal in it inside the dishwasher. However, you cant use it for about 1 weeks' time.

Charcoal absorbs trapped smell.

hope this helps.
