Tip

My 20 year old dishwasher never smelled,I use the dishwasher 3 times a week...


Your dishwasher is one of the most used appliances in your kitchen.
No matter what dishwasher model you have, you need to give some thought to giving it regular maintenance. Dishwasher cleaning is one of the things that many people wonder about. The best dishwasher is the one that is kept in good running order by keeping it in top working condition.

If your dishwasher is used regularly you really do not need to clean a dishwasher. Dishwasher cleaning is only needed if you do not use it for a week or more and it begins to smell bad inside. Other wise the only cleaning needed is to keep food particles and waste from building up inside. Some dishwasher can discharge larger particles then others. If you have one that does not do well in this area, then you need to remove the leftover food often. A paper towels works very well to do this. There are commercial dishwasher cleaners that you can run through your dishwasher, to make it clean and smell nice again if you have not used it for a long time.

If you are noticing that your dishes are not being cleaned properly, it may be because you are not getting enough water in the dishwasher. The water inlet valve is what allows the water to flow into you dishwasher. This valve will wear over time and then not allow the water to enter properly. This valve is located right behind the kick panel, and is a very easy replacement for most handyman type people. It is recommended that this valve be replaced as a preventative measure, every three to seven years.

Check the racks in your dishwasher for places that the plastic coating has worn off. When this happens the rack will rust and can stain what is being washed. There are repair kits available to repair the coatings on your racks. If you sand the rust off of the racks first the repair will stack better and last longer.

The spray arms inside your dishwasher can also become clogged. Bits of food, paper, and other things can become stuck in the small holes. Take the time to remove these and clean out all of the little holes. This will allow the pump to move more water and also ensure that you get a good spray pattern again to give you the best cleaning possible.
If you find glass in the spray arms, you should also remove and disassemble the pump. Check it for damage from the glass. Glass can damage the seals in the pump. If left too long it will cause the pump seals to leak. If you have a leak at your pump, it may have been caused by glass.

On some dishwashers there is a filter before the pump. This is located under the lower spray arm, near the bottom of the dishwasher. Clean this filter often and if it becomes damaged replace it to protect your pump. If you do not know how to clean it, check your owner’s manual to see how to do it properly.

These things will help your dishwasher to work well and give you great service for a long time. If you provide service to your dishwasher you will also be assured that you are getting the best performance from your dishwasher also.

The Vent on the front of my Kenmore Elite Dishwasher is giving off a very strong smelling odour when the dishwasher is going through the entire cycle. The inside of it is fine, no smell. It smells up my...


There is a product sold at home depot that is called AFFRESH made for cleaning smells of stagnant water and other smells as well. They make two different kinds of this product one is for a dishwasher and comes in a yellow bag the other is for front load washers but can also be used on top load washers as well in a green bag. Basicly you use a tablet and run the dishwasher on its hottest setting. Unfortunatley I am unable to smell the smell that your smelling if it were a burnt wire smell then I would ask that you turn off the electrical breaker to the dishwasher whereas I have seen on LG units a couple years ago a type of black goey insulation that LG used to use as a form of insulation on the wires in between the the two panels for the door. Unfortunatley this type of insulation ended up corroding the wires and eventually makeing them short against the door of the unit. Also at least once per year you should also clean out the chopper area in your dishwasher this is the part of the dishwasher that shreds up any large debris or food particles in a dishwasher. It would really depend on if it smells like a stagnant water smell, a old food type smell, or an electrical type of smell. I very much reccommend using the AFFRESH though as even the toughest smells of mold or stagnant water can be alleviated with this product. Using two tablets usually remedies the smell. If you have any further questions message me back and please remember after our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future Thanks
Rick
p.s if you need a schematic showing the location of your chopper message me back the model number to your machine and I will locate your schematic

Odd odor coming out of dishwasher upon opening it. Smells like rotten milk. What is the best cleaning solution?


After a dishwasher is installed the hose rarely comes to mind - unless a problem occurs and a repair person comes out to inspect the job. If the hose was installed improperly, or if it is lying in a position that does not let it drain, stagnant water will create a bad smell. Examine the hose that is probably inside the kitchen cabinet beneath the sink. If the hose is lying in the bottom of the cabinet, it is probably full of water. A film begins to form inside the hose and the odor begins to grow. The next time the dishwasher is used, the stagnant water ends up on dishes, and in the meantime it can cause a bad smell inside of the dishwasher. Hang the hose at an angle on supports in the back of the cabinet. This alone might get rid of the bad smell inside the dishwasher.

Check the Seal

A dirty dishwasher seal can be a source of a bad smell. Before deciding the dishwasher needs to be replaced, check the seal - especially at the bottom. Old food and grime builds up in these areas and can cause a particularly bad smell. Clean it with a solution of diluted bleach and hot soapy water. One teaspoon of bleach for each quart of water is sufficient to kill germs and the odors they create.

NB I decided to add a little bit of vinegar to the machine after I unloaded it. Sure it would smell pretty strong for a while but then the smell would dissipate. Voila! For two weeks now my dishes have not smelled whatsoever.

Odor will not go away.............


hi there,

i would let you try putting a small can with charcoal in it inside the dishwasher. However, you cant use it for about 1 weeks' time.

Charcoal absorbs trapped smell.

hope this helps.
