After you have unloaded the the dishwasher, prop the door open with the upper rack out.
Let the inside air out. After a short time the remaining moisture will evaporate. Stainless steel dishwashers are prone to an odor if you do not use the machine daily. There are after market products that are citrus based that will help. Check with Bosch.

try running some bleach in the wash cycle

1 Answer

The wash cycle runs and runs.


Most diswashers have a complete cycle that lasts over an hour. The machine fills with about 1.5-2 quarts of water, rinses the dishes for a few minutes, then empties the water, then fills again with new water and rinses for a few more minutes, then empties. This is to get a good bit of the looser gunk off the dishes, and to soften up any other stuff that has dried on there. Then the machine fills a third time, the soap door pops open, and it washes for a much longer time to hopefully dissolve away pretty much anything left on the dishes. Then it empties, and does a rinse the soap off cycle, and usually a final cycle that rinses again with a little bit of rinse agent to help them dry quickly.

The whole process uses about 2 gallons of water.

MAYTAGS BEST DISHWASHER STINKS


Start up and empty dishwasher, with no dishwasher powder detergent added. Wait for the dishwasher to fill and begin the wash cycle. Open the do and add one quarter cup of household bleach. Allow to finish the whole cycle.

Check the smell and look at the residual water left in the bottom of the dishwasher, if you can see it. Is that water clear?

Run several loads of dirty dishes and check for any odor.

If problems return, recommend you remove the filter assembly in the lower sump area (the spray arm will need to be removed too.) Inspect with a flashlight the whole area for debris and blockages. Reassemble and keep checking it for any return of the odor. This is not normal for a modern dishwasher.

Dishes not clean


Depending on the age of this Maytag Jetclean II, you either have a failing pump motor that would need to be replaced.
First step is to clear the filter that is beneath the lower spray arm. (Tools required) Remove all debris you find. Then place a bowl or large cup of vinegar inside the empty dishwasher with no dishwasher powder added and run the unit for a full or short cycle. Use either Cascade or Electrosol powder for the next 30 days, never use gel or tablets in any diswasher.
Please report back what you find and do.

Our Bosch diswasher smells (foul odor) after a wash cycle.


Make sure the drainage hose is not pushed all the way through the gooseneck in the pipe. Doing so will bypass the standing water which prevents sewer gasses from escaping into the dishwasher.

Dishwater odor


Lots of ideas,,, Try cycling the dishwasher without dishes on the hottest setting and about 10 miutes into that cycle..stop it and add 2 ups of white vinegar to the water.. let it complete the cycle..

The problem is that standing water with food byproducts will begin to smell as they break down. Like all dishwahers, there is always a small amount of water that remains in the drain system at all times so it is important to clean the filter trap and to periodically air it out or use the white vinegar method..
Hope this helps you...

Dishwasher Odor


I would disconnect the drain hose from the sink trap and drain the water out into a pot -- just to make sure there's nothing in the hose that can't get out. Check the sink trap too to make sure it's not holding something. Run an empty dishwasher using TANG instead of dishwasher detegerent.

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.
