Dishwasher smells like pond scum

After washing dishes, not during winter, my glass Corelle dishes, glasses and silverware smell like fish water. I have tried bleach, baking soda, jet dry, cleaning down the interior walls with Kitchen bacterial killer. When I wash the same dishes by hand, they smell fine!

    I have the same problem with my kenmore.  Weird because the plastic stuff doesn't smell fishy, just mostly my dishes, which are Dansk and my flatware stink.  Very gross, smells up the whole kitchen during the dry cycle.

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!

Soap residue on glasses & silverware


Try changing the type and brand of detergent as some are better than others. Could the water softener need service? If you wash/rinse any dishes in the sink, do they have the same problem? Good luck!

White spots left on glasses and silverware


The white residue could be water spots from hard water. They are most notably left on clear plastic glasses, clear glasses, and silverware. If your silverware is authentic sterling silver you shouldn't be washing it in the dishwasher anyways as this ruins it.------

The best advice for the hard water is to use jet dry there should be a dispenser for this on your dishwasher. The other solution is to use those oxi clean tablets or the cascade 2 in 1 gel packs. normally,this is caused by hard water. try using a dying agent like jet dry, it will stop the white spots. good luck.--------

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Dishes smell like fish


   Hi, I've been scanning this for awhile as I have this problem on and off. I have watched what I have been cooking and have come to the conclusion it's to do with eggs.  I always noticed it when we had eggs ( they are fed with ground up fish) so changed to vegetarian  fed  chicken eggs and problem got better, I only notice it now if I use a salad cream or mayonnaise type products with egg added in the ingredients and I hand wash these away from all other items.  I have noticed many comments on hygiene, but if you have this problem you become a cleaning nut trying to get rid of it. I always clean with vinegar and bleach and it did not work with this one. Hope this helps

Dishes come out with a white, chalky film, not very clean.


are you using palmolive eco liquid detergent? if so - google "palmolive eco white residue" and you will find out that your detergent is the culprit. the solution is to use 1/2 cup of vinegar in your rinse cycle and soap dish and STOP USING PALMOLIVE ECO!

Bad smell on dried dishes after being washed.Stale water smell.


Try Running Goo Gone Through It Although It Smells Like Oranges It Removes Stains As Strong As Sap. Also Try Running The Dry Cycle While Its Empty Two Or Three Times.

correct, no filters to clean, but what you are smelling is soap residues that have built up on the heating element and when it goes thru the heat dry cycle, it burns the soap causing the odors.
trying the cleaners you have may help but the cause is the residues. you need to use a d/w cleaner like d/w magic or citric acid. if you just run the unit with the waterheat option and vinegar in a bowl right side up in the top rack, it should rinse out the residues then dont use to omuch soap and only use dry powder soap. no tablets or liquids.
run hot water at the faucet first and then be sure to use the heat option. it may take a few cycles to get rid of the odor but it will go away as you get the unit cleaned out.

SMELLY GLASSES


Suggest running a rinse cycle once or twice, if this does not help, try mixing one or two table spoons of baking soda into 500 ml - liter of warm water and wipe down the interior of your dishwasher.

After wiping down, run the rinse cycle again before attempting a normal wash.

Try to avoid washing pans with glassware, as some coatings ( that may be dishwasher safe ) have a tendency to react with the detergent, thus creating an unclean smell on other utensils, plates or glass.

Wash pans on their own, or in a conventional sink.
