My new Samsung dishwasher has a HORRIBLE smell


There are 2 possible explanations for this, either the dishwasher has a buildup of food particles and grease in the pipes and pumps and that is starting to decay. Get a dishwasher cleaner and run it through a cycle. You can find several different brands, Finish seems pretty popular, at your local grocery store. The other possible source of the smell is sewer gas backing up into the dishwasher. This happens because the waste water connection from the dishwasher is linked into the pipes under the sink after the P-trap. Take a look under your kitchen sink, locate the connection where the dishwasher wastewater pipe connects to the sink pipes leading to the main stack. Now follow the pipes from the sink drain down there will be a P- trap that prevents sewer gas from backing up into the house, your dishwasher connection should be between those two. If your P-trap is between the dishwasher conncetion and the sink drain then you are getting swere gas flowing into your dishwasher and this is what you are smelling. If this is the case have a licensed plumber come in and reconfigure the pipes so the P-trap is after the dishwasher connection and the smell will stop. It shouldn't take a plumber long and the parts are cheap. Hope this helps.

Don't understand the incomprehensible door and general installation instructions for the aqua star. Just uses pictures, anywhere available that uses WORDS?


Hello,
  • 1 what you'll need
    Electric drill and hole cutting bit
    Screwdrivers
    Pliers
    Adjustable wrench
    Level
    Teflon pipe tape
    Drain pipe for dishwasher
    Dishwasher connection kit - available at your home store (should contain water supply line for dishwasher as well as necessary connectors and compression couplers).
    New dishwasher

  • 2Determine that you have access to the hot water supply line, the drainpipe and an electrical connection under the sink. Installing the dishwasher will require extending the hot water supply line to the dishwasher, connecting the dishwasher drain to the drainpipe under the sink, and plugging the dishwasher in. If your home was not plumbed in anticipation of a dishwasher, you will need to change some fittings under the sink to make these connections possible. (See below)
  • 3Read the instruction manual that comes with your new dishwasher. Installing a dishwasher is straightforward but you want to be sure you understand and are comfortable with the necessary steps.

    Where does the drain hook to? maybe a picture please, thanks


    Connect your dishwasher's drainpipe to the discharge pump. Many local building codes require dishwashers to be vented using an air gap to prevent the siphoning of water from the sink drain or disposal. Mount the air gap in one of the sink holes or drill a hole for it in the countertop. Connect the drainpipes to the air gap and secure them with hose or spring clamps.

    The following links will help you with your dishwasher's installation:

    Glasses that become cloudy after a few washes. The temperature is never above 55.


    hi
    Dishwashers usually run on 115-volt or 120-volt power. The water they use comes directly from the water heater, and wastewater is drained into the sink's drainpipe. The dishwasher is not connected to the cold-water supply. For best dishwashing results, set the temperature control of the water heater to no less than 140 degrees Farenheit. Water cooler than this usually doesn't get the dishes clean, unless your dishwasher is a newer model that preheats incoming water. The water shutoff for the dishwasher is typically located below the adjoining sink.

    A common problem with dishwashers is the non-draining machine. If you are having trouble, check to see if the drainpipe and sink trap are clogged. If you still have drainage problems after doing this, check your drain hose to make sure there are no kinks or bends. if the hose looks worn out you can replace the hose pretty inexpensivley. if your have thoughly checked from dishwasher to trap under the sink where your dishwasher should drain to and it seems clear you may have to call in the repair man.
