    I run bleach through a cycle and that helps for a load or 2, but it's geting worse. Silverware is always the worst, I need to rinse and dry it by hand.

    My new dishwasher makes my glassware smell like fish too. We don't eat fish. I've tried disinfecting the garbage disposal. Seemed to help for a load or two, but thats it. I've tried all brands of detergent, nothing helps. Will try bleach today.

If you are in any doubt about the ability to properly clean your dishes etc, then get an engineer to check it out.
You could always wash the dishes yourself?

Our dishwasher smells like fish inside of it. We tried pouring in vinegar and running the rinse cycle but it hasn't helped. All of our dishes now smell like fish. Is there some place we are supposed to...


Check the main drain system, that is connected to the dish washer drain hose. There must be some clogging!

Remove that hose junction point and clean it. Try draining the hose straight into a bucket and watch for free flow.

Otherwise there should be some dead rodent inside the machine. It would have got trapped inside alive and died. Try to locate. It is a difficult job. Have a nose mask or cloth wrapped around and start the search. After you are satisfied leave the machine open with a fan ON.

Dishes smell like fish


   Hi, I've been scanning this for awhile as I have this problem on and off. I have watched what I have been cooking and have come to the conclusion it's to do with eggs.  I always noticed it when we had eggs ( they are fed with ground up fish) so changed to vegetarian  fed  chicken eggs and problem got better, I only notice it now if I use a salad cream or mayonnaise type products with egg added in the ingredients and I hand wash these away from all other items.  I have noticed many comments on hygiene, but if you have this problem you become a cleaning nut trying to get rid of it. I always clean with vinegar and bleach and it did not work with this one. Hope this helps

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.

Dishwasher smells like pond scum


I have the SAME problem with our dishwasher. It's disgusting. Between the fishy glasses and the garlicky ice cubes (NO, we don't have garlic in our refrigerator or freezer -- purchased ice doesn't smell), I'm embarrassed to pour our guests a glass of ice water!

Permanent (?) stains on inside of door


Have you tried a treatment (not sure of the name) that you wash plastic dishes with that takes the orange stains out? It can be found at Walmart for under $10. I don't know of anything that can prevent this problem but I don't see why a product that takes it out of plastic dishes can't take it off the plastic of the dishwasher. Hope it helps!
