Question about Frigidaire 24 in. FDB510LC Free-standing Dishwasher
Smells like rubber burning
It is very common for the "relays" to go out on the compressor. The relays are mounted on the left side of the compressor. You need to find an "Appliance Parts Store" and buy an "RO-41". (this is a relay) it cost no more than 10 bucks. Go home with you new bought relay and pull your refrigerator out from the wall. Don't forget to unplug it! Take off the rectangle card board cover off the bottom of the refrigerator "in back"... More than likely 1/4 nut driver. Now look for the compressor--"The Roundish black thing the size of a basketball". Next, you will see a box looking thing (black, white) mounted on the side of the compressor with 2 wires going to it. Next take it off the side of the compressor. It just pulls straight off! Sometime though it may be held in place by a little clip. Now read the instructions with the RO-41(inside cover). You will end up cutting the old relays off. Take the two wires that went to it and wire them into the relay(follow the instructions w/relay) then other wires on relay plug right into the compressor! AND THATS IT! It sounds hard but aint... goodluck!!!

Tips for a great answer:
After a dishwasher is installed the hose rarely comes to mind - unless a problem occurs and a repair person comes out to inspect the job. If the hose was installed improperly, or if it is lying in a position that does not let it drain, stagnant water will create a bad smell. Examine the hose that is probably inside the kitchen cabinet beneath the sink. If the hose is lying in the bottom of the cabinet, it is probably full of water. A film begins to form inside the hose and the odor begins to grow. The next time the dishwasher is used, the stagnant water ends up on dishes, and in the meantime it can cause a bad smell inside of the dishwasher. Hang the hose at an angle on supports in the back of the cabinet. This alone might get rid of the bad smell inside the dishwasher.
Check the Seal
A dirty dishwasher seal can be a source of a bad smell. Before deciding the dishwasher needs to be replaced, check the seal - especially at the bottom. Old food and grime builds up in these areas and can cause a particularly bad smell. Clean it with a solution of diluted bleach and hot soapy water. One teaspoon of bleach for each quart of water is sufficient to kill germs and the odors they create.
NB I decided to add a little bit of vinegar to the machine after I unloaded it. Sure it would smell pretty strong for a while but then the smell would dissipate. Voila! For two weeks now my dishes have not smelled whatsoever.
