Question about Kenmore 24 in. 17019 Built-in Dishwasher
Dishwashers which are properly installed and regularly used won't normally have a problem with bad odors. Check the following: ?Was the drain hose brought in at the top of the cabinet, or down near the floor? it must be 34" from the floor. ?Do you run the unit at least once every 2 days? -Run a cycle with a quart of vinegar to clean the tub and pump. ?Does the disposal tend to back up slightly when the dishwasher drains? Drain may be clogged. -Don't use gel detergent! ?Check your water softener(If so equipped) These can cause foul odors in the water supply if not properly balanced or maintained Good luck!

SOURCE: Dishwasher insulation for heat
I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your questoin is: You're wondering if you can further insulate your dishwasher for heat. You are redoing your kitchen, new appliances, cabinets, etc. and shortsightedly put the spice sliding pull-out cabinet next to the dishwasher. The spices get warm when you use the dishwasher. There is a bit of room between the cabinet and dishwasher. Any recommendations for further insulation?
Yes. I would get another insulation blanket off a d/w I'm disposing. Anyway, you need to get one and install it over the old one to decrease the heat transfer.

There is now a universal dishwasher bracket for just this problem called E-Z DISHWASHER BRACKET. It is available through Braxton-Bragg or ask for it at a local granite fabricator. It is very simple to use.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. Based on your description I'd say the issue is most likely with the control...unfortunately. I will also say this can be the result of too much detergent, but less likely as I'm sure you've had this machine for some time according to the model number. I will apologize in advance for this post appearing bunched and no proper spacing, it seems the iphone ( which I'm using presently ) does not allow a simply copy & paste of my better explained solutions to issues such as yours. If you click on my profile and search other Bosch shu43 machines you will get a better description and a more structured explaination. Anyway....Bosch has had a history of this exact problem I'm about to lay out for you and this is the first thing I'd be looking for if called out to service the unit with the symptoms you've described. **B/S/H/ also issued a recall on certain models between 1999 - 2006 depending on the model & serial number, and it does apply to yours....based on just the model number, but check the serial number. It applies to serial numbers betweenFD7905 - FD8505 The issue was directly related to the heating circuit (specifically the heat relay on the control) Here`s the link if you want to see for yourself ** http://microsites.boschappliances.com/safetyrecall/dishwasher/ As I've alluded to the issue is likely within the electronic timer/control, specifically the heater relay solder joint. ( a faulty flow switch, ntc or heater can also cause this, but not very probable ). My first suggestion would be contacting Bosch re: the recall or calling in an authorized bosch service tech. if that is an option for you and your budget however, If you feel capable of checking this on your own, there`s a way to visually inspect the control yourself. It will require you to remove the control from the unit and then remove the control from it`s plastic housing and look for a burnt solder contact on the printed circuit board. The culprit will 99% of the times be one of the pins from the heater relay, inspect the solder joints and it will be obvious when it is spotted...hence the unit sit`s and takes longer & longer to finish because it can`t heat to advance or unless the 2 buttons for "cancel" are pressed...or takes a long time as I mentioned...often a poor cleaning as a result as detergent MUST have a minimum of 145F water to be activated/disolve proper. You can also run the unit through a regular or econo cycle ...any cycle with the exception of rinse & hold, and with the door panel removed place an ammeter on the gray/black wire it should draw 11 amps during the wash cycle...after it fills and the flow switch indicates it has adequate water to engage the heater. **My Opinion - if you or someone you know is proficient at soldering, a lot of times it can be remedied by simply repairing the solder...but it has to be done well...or it will not last, although Bosch recommend`s replacing the control and I don`t pretend to speak on their behalf nor do I profess to know better. This is just my experience (it work`s) and my opinion (why buy new if one can repair ?)** **Please disconnect the power or turn off the breaker before attempting any service to the dishwasher.** As you alluded to though, sometimes one needs to call a tech. If you do not feel comfortable attempting this service, call a local pro, preferably one familiar with Bosch/Thermador/Gaggenau/Siemens, to service your machine. I would strongly suggest you inquire re: the recall though. Hope this answer`s your question, let me know if I can assist you further. Thank`s for visiting "FixYa" for your repair inquiries.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
Either 3 things, the factory does a test and somebody did not dry out the unit. it would have a mold smell, or somewhere along the line, condensation got to the unit.....
or last but not least, if you bought the unit from a store. it might have been a return, so where was the unit shipped from the factory or store....
I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response. We take the time to answer your question. take the time to rate us.Thanks and good luck
