Terrible smell inside the dishwasher. Bad drain smell


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.

Water is left in the bottom of the dishwasher after completing a cycle


When you find water left in the bottom of the dishwasher... most of the times there is an "Intake/Drain" flashing, or some other type of fault indication. The dishwasher has faulted out, in the middle of a selected program. The dishwasher won't even bother to drain the water out. If it's not a drain fault, then you can drain the water out by: switching the dishwasher off and on again; selecting a program; and closing the door. Open the door after 15 seconds and see if the water has drained out. If it didn't drain, there is a drain problem. If it did drain, then it can be several things. To better determine the problem, you will have to pay close attention to when the dishwasher faults out.

WATER DOES NOT DRAIN COMPLETELY


Your dishwasher's drain pump is not designed to work until the water is completely drained but rather in sync with the timer. The motor will stop when the timer stops no matter how much water is left inside the machine.
In your case, either of the following is causing the trouble:
  1. There's a part clogging in the drain line.
  2. A debris is caught in the drain pump impeller.
  3. Drain valve is not opening completely.
  4. Worn belt if your washer uses a belt to drive the pump.
Here's the remedy to each of them:
  1. Remove the drain line to clear any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
  2. The drain pump is usually mounted directly to the motor and attached to the bottom of the dishwasher. Remove the lower rack, the spray arm, and the spray arm support to reach the pump from inside the dishwasher. Look for the wash impeller, which forces the water through the spray arm. Beneath it is the drain impeller, which is similar in size and shape to the wash impeller. Clear the drain impeller from any debris that prevent it from pumping out water properly.
  3. Sometimes the drain valve solenoid or the diverting lever sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining properly. Lubricate the lever to free it up. Replace it otherwise.
  4. If your machine uses a belt to drive the pump, the belt may have been worn and cannot drive the pump properly. Replace the belt if that is the case.
Feel free to give updates.

Water left in compartment


You need to elevate your dishwasher drain hose under the sink. The water going down your disposal side is running down the hose into the dishwasher.

Drainage problem


I had similar problem and rerouted the drain hose like papps54 said. I still had the condition and decided to pull out the drain hose completely to see if there was any debris trapped inside the hose. There was! I removed the hose from the machine completely, cleared out the debris, and let the hose soak in white vinegar overnight. In the meantime, I looked back up the drain outlet and found evidence of debris lodged in there as well. I didn't completely dismantle the dishwasher at this point but I did eventually clear it out as well as the drain filter located inside the dishwasher. After reassembling the drain hose and dishwasher, I cleaned it with baking soda for three nights and now it runs very well with no odors. Runs quieter as well.

Water left in the bottom of dishwasher after cycle was complete


If the water doesn't drain from your dishwasher, check these:
  1. Drain line/air gap--A clog in this part is the usual reason that a dishwasher doesn't drain. Remove the drain line to clear any debris from the hose or hose connection at the household drain line connection. Reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again.
  2. Pump--You can reach the pump from inside the dishwasher. Remove the lower rack, spray arm and support. Look for an impeller, a device that spins around and forces water through the spray arm. This is the wash impeller and beneath it is the drain impeller that pushes the water into the drain port. Replace it if found defective or worn out.
  3. Drain valve/solenoid---The drain valve may have a solenoid with lever that sticks or frozen and prevents the dishwasher from draining. Free up the solenoid and lubricate the lever.
  4. Belt---A certain brand of dishwasher uses a belt to drive the pump. Replace it if broken or worn out.
  5. Motor---Check it if turning or working.Turn the rotor manually to see if stuck and free it up. Replace if defective, it is not serviceable.

Water in the dishwasher after the the cycle is complete


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?
Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!
Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.
The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.
