The smell is normally from undesolved soaps still in the system and the small remaining fatty products. Give a few hot washes without soap and dishes at least 2ce a week untill smell goes.

My dishwasher is left quite wet inside after washing dishes. Is this unusual, especially for an expensive Viking dishwasher that is brand new?


make sure you have selected the heated dry option. for the smell, add a 1/2 cup of white vinegar to wash cycle.

How can you get a washer smelling good?


First of all this mainly happens when you use cold water washing, the plastic bowl(s) become slightly porous over time & the dirt from clothes adhere to the area between the inner & outer bowls.

To clean & remove smell.

1. Put washer on hot wash, high level & let it fill with HOT water.

2. Stop washer, put in an old towel.

3. Add a bucket of hot water (This allows the water level to be above the scum mark inside machine.

4. Add washing soda to the bowl (double the amount it says on the packet).

5. Start washer & allow to run to the end of the first wash cycle.

6. Stop washer & allow to sit for a few hours.

7. After the few hours, start washer & allow it to run the rest of the full cycle.

you can do the same procedure with Vinegar.

you may have to repeat procedure a few times.

TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING AGAIN YOU NEED TO DO THIS PROCEDURE ONCE EVERY 3 MONTHS.

The worst case scenario, you will have get a technician to remove the inner bowl & manually clean these areas.

Frigidaire Dishwasher smells between washes


We had a similar problem... now once a month we run a cycle with 1/2 clup of bleach... then we run a cycle with just water, then we run a cup of vinegar on the third cycle... That has stopped the smell for us... if we go a few months without doing this it starts to smell again...

Hope this helps

Dishwasher has a terrible odor in it. I'm guessing it came from an empty sauerkraut glass jar and lid I put through the wash, heated dry and sanitize cycle. How do I get rid of that nasty, something...


Check whether the smell comes from the main drain. Pull your dish washer drain hose and check.

Leave dishwasher door open for few hours. Hope no rate has died inside the machine.

Run a empty wash several times!

When the load is in mid-wash it smells like a fish cannery! The whols house will smell like fish. The dishes will all smell like fish. I put lemon and vinegar down the disposal and it worked for a few...


You might want to try adding a jar of "Tang" orange drink to the dishwasher and running it through a wash cycle.

Empty the washer, remove the racks.

Fill the soap dispenser with Tang and put the rest in the bottom of the washer.
Set the washer to run a normal wash cycle and when it is finished it will have cleaned out your dishwasher.
Now depending on how much debris is in the washer, you may have to do it twice.
Worked for me. Good luck.
