We have a new dishwasher, been ran twice and it smells terrible and stays soaked inside


A large object is lodged inside the drain pipe and will not allow water to drain.
Have someone remove the clog and run a empty cycle to flush more deposits.
Hope this helps!

Dishwasher: GPF400SGFOWW For past two weeks making toxic smells. Last night it stopped draining. Filter clear, Hose Clear?


This may seem off the wall, but does the float move freely. The float is shaped like a mushroom and is on the bottom of the DW. Try to move it up and down gently. Does it move freely?

The toxic smell is your water warmer element on when there is no water in the basin. Yucky. The float tells you how much water you got in the DW.

Try these help topics if that doesn't help.

Terrible smell inside the dishwasher. Bad drain smell


Hi

The smell usually comes when the unit is unable to drain water completely, you can run your dishwasher at its hottest temperature setting with 2 cups of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the lower front panel and clean the drain pump assembly completely, also clean the drain hose, the smell should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

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.

Water inlet


It sounds like there is either a kink in your drain hose or your garbage disposal is blocked up where the dishwasher drain is connected

Maytag Quiet Series 300 smells broken door latch and lower rack


I have had the same problem and there is a simple fix.

The problem in my case was the floating water sensor was stuck and gummed up with grease.

On the bottom of the dishwasher, in the front right corner there is a round doughnut-looking thing. This is the water level sensor. It is open on the bottom, and grease collects there.

When this happens, the air pocket is too small, and the float won't float. then the dishwasher overflows. To clean it: just reach under with your finger, and scoop out the grease.

Sometimes, after doing this, the float then gets stuck in the "up" position. When this happens, the dishwasher completely drains, and the heater element for the dishwasher is exposed, and food cooks onto it, and that is where the smell is coming from.

Dishwasher has terrible smell and water lays inside tub.


The drain is plugged. You will have to pull out the dishwasher and clean out the drain port. A repair person could also do this for the price of a house call. The smell is coming from the dirty water in the tub. You'll have to bail this out before making the repair.

Dishwasher did not drain out all of the water


run it again on the hot cycle...if that doesn't work...you have a clogged drain hose or a defective pump.

There is a terrible smell in the dishwasher


All DW that I know of will have water sitting at the bottom.. it keeps the seal moist..check your drain line make sure its clean and not clog... when your DW goes into drain listen to see if its drainning like it did when you first used it... I'll check back later..

have you tried adjusting the feet on the front of the washer so it is tilted back slightly .This will stop the water from coming over the little lip on the front of the machine. Some dishwashers also use a little amount of water in the bottom when drying asthis helps to curculate the heat ; leave the washer to complete it's cycle and it should beep to let you know when it is finished
