Question about Ariston Technologies Dishwashers
Below is an image from Ariston about the dispenser loading. Since I do not have your specific model number this may or may not look the same as yours. The type of detergent is up to you, powder, liquid, gel or tablets. If you use tablets make sure they fit into the door without forcing it closed or this could jam the door. Just be sure the detergent you use is for dishwashers, not hand washing detergent.
There is something you can try to get the dispenser working. Since the dishwasher sounds like it sat a while unused it may have gummed up the latch. The latch is the little trigger that holds the dispenser door closed and releases the dispenser lid. Move this back and forth putting a drop or two of cooking oil on it until it moves free. If this does not fix it, you will need to have the dispenser assembly replaced.
As far as the odor there is a product that works great for this. It is called 'Affresh' they make it for clothes washers and dishwashers, be sure to buy the yellow package as the green package is for clothes washers. There are instructions on the package and it works good and easy.
Let me know if you have questions.
