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

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.
