Getting a funny, fishy smell from my dryer. Whirlpool Inglis.


Check the power cord. The fishy smell is probably from the power cord that is scorched. If so, detach the power cord and bring it to a hardware store to find a replacement. Home Depot or Lowes should have it for about $13. If you are not sure how to detach and re-attach, google how to do it and you should find videos. BTW: While you have your dryer out, clean the filters with a dryer brush. You can get this at Lowes.

The cool air blowing out has a fishy smell.


Hi!!

That's the smell of foul water, make sure to frecuently empty the drip pan, wash it and desinfect it using a couple of drops of clorox or other desinfectant.

Fishy smell after the dishwasher runs


Do this. Pour two cups of white vinegar into the empty dishwasher and then run your longest and hottest cycle. This will clean and sanitize your machine. Do this as often as needed. J.

Funny fishy smell coming from 95 tiger 855 when it starts up. just changed the battery and can be difficult to start.


Some high heat paints smell fishy after the motor warms up and will continue to do so until the paint finally dries. Remember that your muffler resonator chamber can also collect moisture and create mold if stored for long periods since most of these use fiberglass to dampen sound.

Smells fishy


You probably have rotting food scraps in the food trap. Take the bottom arm off, remove the filter, and clean. You can also add some bleach to the bottom of the tank and run the dishwasher empty to sanitize the inside. Run a second empty load to rinse. This should help rid the dishwasher of the nasty smell.

Kenmore top freezer fishy smell


if it has an icemaker attached, this may cause your problem. to get rid of the fishy smell, get a box of baking soda, open it a little, and stick it somewhere in your freezer. this will help to filter the air and make it fresher. Also some vegetables can cause this noxious smell, especially if cooked then frozen or if a box or bag of bad frozen vegetables has been stored in the freezer. Our freezer recently had a problem with the icemaker making it smell musty, like after a rain, wet dirt, and I have yet to find a real solution to this problem other than baking soda.

Dishwasher smells like pond scum


I have the SAME problem with our dishwasher. It's disgusting. Between the fishy glasses and the garlicky ice cubes (NO, we don't have garlic in our refrigerator or freezer -- purchased ice doesn't smell), I'm embarrassed to pour our guests a glass of ice water!

If it is new- then the fishy smell is almost certainly the motor and circuit boards 'cooking' in- most motorized electrical devices have an initial pong. However if it persists after say 10/15 cycles begin to suspect an incipient fault.
