Question about KitchenAid K-Series 24" Tall Tub Built-In Dishwasher - Stainless-Steel

Open Question

Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDK03ITBL burning hose or something smell.

I purchased the Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDK03ITBL in May and every time I run it, it smells like burning hoses or something. I had a service guy check it, and he couldn't find anything that would be causing the odor. When he opened the panel on the door, the smell was strong inside of the door but he couldn't find the source. He said it was safe to run and it wouldn't burn the house down. But the smell is offensive!! A cross between tarring a roof and a burning hose in your car! What can be done? The service guy suggested using dishwasher magic...I did and it didn't do anything.

SOURCE: My dishwasher emits a dead animal smell

This vent that you are describing is to allow air to flow in for the heat/dry cycle. Some times little creatures want to "mark" their territory by "spraying". Spray some type of cleaner like ammonia into it and **** it out with vacuum a few times. Most likely will have to flush it out quite a bit if I am right about the air flow which that is all it can be. There could be a creature that got in that vent. Is there a pice of screen that blocks it? Can you adhere one to it. I hope this is what you are describing to me. Let me know if it is not and I will research it more and thanks for using FixYa.

Burning smell


I have the same problem. Never could get a resolution from Kitchenaid, however, we avoid the burning smell by using the 'energy saving' dry cycle. Have you tried that?

Cycle runs but dishes are still dirty. No water.


Sounds like an inlet valve. If there is no water in the pump when it runs you can burn up the rubber seals. After fixing the fill problem you should check underneath for any leaks.

Bad smell in dishwasher, have cleaned and even used bleach. The smell just comes back. even smells on the dishes. the smell is like a stink bug.


Three things, dryer coil, food stuck inside.

Most washers have a one way valve on the drain and a water trap
created with the line, so no water or smell can go into the machine.

Check the valve, remove the hose,that should be under the sink,
wrap a cloth around it and blow,it should not be able to blow into it.
Then make sure the hose at some point go higher then where it
connects to the drain.

Fill a bucket and fill the washer until you see a little in the bottom of the machine, watch it for a few minutes to see if it drains, it
shouldn't, dump in a bottle of white vinegar and run the machine, make sure dry is off. Then run it again, do not add anything.

Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell


Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.
