There are a few possibities...
if you remove the lid and take the two t20 screw off the left side panel at the front you could check the pressure chamber and its hose are not blocked. Use the link and go to page 4, part 263834 and 361113. You can also remove 165263 (remove t20 screw via the sump after all filters are removed) this will expose the pump impellor and you can check for any obstruction.
Try running a 65 degree wash with a couple of caps of baby sterilising fluid. If the d/w is connected directly to the sink, remove the spigot and check there aren't any blockages. I run a dishwasher cleaner thru my d/w every 3 months and every couple of week I will load the machine for a wash, add tab to dispenser and just after starting a 65 degree wash, I will open the door and tip in approx one capful of sterilising fluid.
baby fluid is also good as a sluice wash for your washing machine on 90 degrees (w/m empty, approx every 4 weeks). https://www.bosch-eshop.com/eshop(bD1lbiZjPTAwOQ==)/bosch/gb/prodp.htm?prod=SHU6802UC%2f12&ESHOPTYPE=S
ps I appreciate the link is not for your model but the part placing should be the same.
I hope this helps, Good Luck.

SOURCE: Whirlpool 24" built-in GU1200XTLBO dishwasher electrical smell

This may be the smell of Varnish used in motor winding. When we turn on the machine it gets heated a little bit resulting in a burning electrical smell.

SOURCE: Terrible smell inside the dishwasher.

Hi

The smell usually comes when the unit is unable to drain water completely, you can run your dishwasher at its hottest temperature setting with 2 cups of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the lower front panel and clean the drain pump assembly completely, also clean the drain hose, the smell should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Terrible smell from the washer. This is a new


do not use baking soda this will react with your detergent and leave smelly deposits and reduce the wash performance modern good quality detergents contain everything needed for a good wash result and a sweet smelling machine. try a hot wash with detergent and an empty load to get rid of smell.

Maytag Quiet Series 300 smells broken door latch and lower rack


I have had the same problem and there is a simple fix.

The problem in my case was the floating water sensor was stuck and gummed up with grease.

On the bottom of the dishwasher, in the front right corner there is a round doughnut-looking thing. This is the water level sensor. It is open on the bottom, and grease collects there.

When this happens, the air pocket is too small, and the float won't float. then the dishwasher overflows. To clean it: just reach under with your finger, and scoop out the grease.

Sometimes, after doing this, the float then gets stuck in the "up" position. When this happens, the dishwasher completely drains, and the heater element for the dishwasher is exposed, and food cooks onto it, and that is where the smell is coming from.

Dishwasher has terrible smell and water lays inside tub.


The drain is plugged. You will have to pull out the dishwasher and clean out the drain port. A repair person could also do this for the price of a house call. The smell is coming from the dirty water in the tub. You'll have to bail this out before making the repair.
