SOURCE: smells bad

I have a very bad smell in my elite kenmore diswasher. We have had it for a year now. I have been smelling this now for several weeks and I didn't know where the smell was coming from until this morning when I pulled the door down to unload my dishes.

HI,

i stronlgy suggest you that dont use it if you are smelling a un usual scent like burning wires.
to prevent any accidental that may occur.
bring your dryer or call a service technician to check parts by parts maybe some are only short circuited.

SOURCE: My dishwasher stinks!

There is food trap of sorts that's part of the soft food disposer. Problem is that food lays down in all the nooks and crannies and festers.

Try this site on YouTube:

You probably don't need to go to this guy's extremes (but he's thorough!). You probably just need the part about how to clean the strainer and bottom of the washer. I think this'll help. There are other videos, some selling products (that I haven't used). Also some of the videos are helpful, you'll just need to take a look. Once you've cleaned the goo, you can help it clean with just one cup of white vinegar and hot water occasionally. Also, use the least amount of detergent that you can, and still get your dishes clean.

Best regards, --W/D--

SOURCE: Bad smell in dishwasher, have cleaned and even

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.

You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

You can give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help, can't you. Thanks.

My microwave is steaming and my whole house stinks. how do i stop the smell and is my microwave broken or is it alright to use?


I guess the question is, what kind of smell is it? Is it like rotten food? Is it like burned wires? If you are not sure, ask a friend to help you identify the smell. Any burned smell is telling you "Get rid of the machine RIGHT NOW before it catches fire".
Other smells that are not so bad can sometimes be helped with a good "airing out" and the addition of a pile or box of baking soda inside to absorb the smell. Do not turn the machine on with the baking soda inside. Air it out outside or in an area that is not living space.
God bless your efforts.

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.

Odor


if you have a bad odor,pull off the vent line from the back and see if an animal is dead there,i've found dead birds,mice and a possum,in the blower wheel of some dryers,they get in from the outside hood,once they get into the vent line and slide down they can't climb back out or if the dryer is running the wheel does a job on them.also if you had some painting or staining done this also can make the dryer smell bad.this is going by what i've found when someone complains about an odor in the dryer.hope this helps,one more thing if the motor is overheating from the dryer not being cleaned out it could have like a shellac smell,you might have to take the dryer apart to see what's stinking or it could be something near the dryer,when the air is heated in the dryer it makes the smell worse but if you find waht is causing it and remove it the smell will go away,if it is from a dead animal you can wash down the area with soapy water,you don't want to use anything with a strong smell because your clothes will smell of that when the dryer heats up.what does it smell like?

My washer smells really bad


your smell is comming from over soaping
a front load machine only needs 1 Tblsp of soap
any thing it builds up and rots thus the smell
get a crystal dish soap
1 cup run the machine empty a full cycle

Stink-ola!


I would call out Maytag as it looks as if an insulator on the motor is burning out.

Or a connector is overheating

Get it checked in case you have a fire

STINKING CLOTHES front loading mach.


One possibility is to not leave the clothes in the washer overnight or they will have a little foul smell to them. We have a Samson washer and it does the same thing and it ranks close to the top on Consumer Reports. If this doesn't help have you tried going to Lowe's and ask someone in the appliance department to see if they can help. You may have already done this but call the manufacturer to see if this is a common problem and see if they have a solution. If they're not very helpful or cooperative let them know you will do a little "free" advertising for them in a nice way of course. I hope this helps. I'm having trouble with a Bissell shampooer not dispensing the shampoo and also not picking up most of the water. It's really aggravating. Have a great evening.

Washer smells after load


First thing to try is to get affresh washer tablets. They are a new product from whirlpool designed for front loaders to keep the smell out. They also work great for top loading machines. They are about ten dollars a pack. Read the instructions and run the washer through its cycle and the smell get better. The longer you use it, the smell should go away.

Why does the washer smell like stale water when I lift the lid


Buy whirlpool affresh washer tablets. They kill the smell in front load washers. But they work great for top loaders too!!! They are only about 10 bucks and all you have to do is read the instructions on the package and run your washer through its cycle. Then your smell should go away.
