Most likely you have an accumulation of waste in the waste pipe or filter that takes water out of the dishwasher to the waste pipe. Check and clean this regularly. In addition, you can buy dishwasher cleaning solutions, which are usually just a small bottle that gets placed int he dishwasher alone and the washer is run through a normal cycle. This helps clean the washer out and deodorizes it as well, however, the odor is probably from a dirty or clogged filter to the waste pipe/tube.

We own this air conditioner and it is one year old. It is working find, however, when running in the air conditioning mode it omits a musty oder. Where I am allergic to mold , I am concerned especially...


The problem is common. It is not a mold spore situation, rather it is a moisture laden problem of parts and dust that create an oder when allowed to warm and stay moist. A spray bottle with 1/2 clorine bleach and 1/2 water sprayed onto the inner components will remove the oder, but as the unit sits idle from time to time, the oder will reappear.

When empty, I can turn inside and sounds like there is water sloshing inside


This is not a problem actually. That is quite normal for top load washers. What happens is when the pump comes on to expel the used water it only runs long enough to empty the inner drum. The outer drum still has a little bit of water inside to act as a pea trap of sorts. This keeps undesirable smells from reentering your pipes and causing bad Oder's in your home. As long as your cloths come out clean and partially dried from the spin cycle then your washer is working correctly. Hope this helps. Good luck.
