I switched back to powder (Cascade) from pre-measured gel packs and the smell went away.

Dishwasher smells


There is a sump in bottom that collects food that is too big to fit in the pump or the drain. You need to clean that. Then you can run one cup of vinegar or bleach in the unit with no dishes.

Rotten smell.used cleaning products. still smells


I had the same problem. I was using Cascade packs (don't remember which kind) and it was moderate. Switched to Finish gel packs and it got really bad.
My husband has a very sensitive nose and he mentionned that there was detergent smell mixed with the rotten smell. He suggested switching back to the good old powder (Cascade).
After 1 wash it was much better and after 2 washes, the smell went away completely.
Hope this helps!

Problem is rotten smell inside GE profile fridge. I've checked for rotten food-none; taken everything out and cleaned inside plus all shelves with added bleach in water. Smell is still there. I...


Hi, pull out the fridge and remove the back panel, and clean that area. Make sure no food is stuck under the fridge also. A rotten piece of fruit or other food, once under there, will smell until it totally decomposes. You can also mix 1/3 cup of bleach and 2/3 cup of water , and pour down drain tube (rear bottom in freezer section. Too much bleach and the smell of bleach would be circulated by the fan to the room, so be sure to add water. Finally, another popular methods of removing fridge odor include washing the entire fridge out with a vinegar and water solution, placing fresh coffee grinds or boxes of baking soda on each shelf and even using trays of cat litter.

Almost everytime when i run the dishwasher, I open the door and it smells like rotten eggs. What could the problem be?


A lot of times there is dirt/food junk stuck in the rubber seal along the door. Try washing that off with a qtip or something. Also check your filter on the machine it is usually under the impellar arms and may require you to take off a few screws to get to it. if you aren't up to that try running a load with a 1/2 cup of vinegar and see if that will clean it

I wash the DW with finish DW cleaner.All items smell rotten eggs


Try running a 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.
Good luck
baby fluid also good as a sluice wash for your washing machine on 90 degrees (w/m empty, approx every 4 weeks).

Why does my new dishwasher (in a new home)smell


You have to leave it open atleast 2 hours after the wash. Atleast the door left half open.

Or the smell must be flowing from your main drain pipe!!

clean out the food traps in the bottom, assuming the unit has some sort of filter.
then run a cup of bleach in the unit with no dishes. you might need to do this once or twice.
make sure you use fresh bleach.
most bleach dies in strength after only 2 weeks. it will still smell like bleach to some degree, but it will have little effect. most bleach manufacturers add 'scents' to the bleach to hide the degradation characteristics of bleach.
also, you may have a partially blocked air gap.
to determine this, check for water remaining in the bottom of the tub after it drains. left over water will contribute to odor, and negate any sterilization you dishwasher might otherwise try to do.
good luck
