Question about LG 24 in. LD-12BS6 Stainless Steel Free-standing Dishwasher
My dishwasher has smelled almost since new. I noticed it does not have a venting system to the air, and it dries the dishes by the condensation method per LG. I called them many times, had 3 different repairmen and 2 plumbers out, changed drain hoses, direction of hoses etc... result is that it still smells really bad. My family will not open it, we leave the dishes in the sink and then all at one time they get put in for minimal open door time! Someone please help me with this 1200.00 dollar mess!
Well, I can't tell you how to fix it exactly, but we had the same problem when we moved in to this house. The dishwasher *always* smelled like rotten meat, it was awful. We discovered, when the garbeurator backed up one day, that the garbeurater pipe somehow attached to the dishwasher, because it all came pouring out through the dishwasher a few minutes later. Truly disgusting, it explained the smell, and now we don't use either of them!
so my suggestion is make sure the garburater isn't somehow hooked to your dw.

First, scrape your dishes clear of food before putting them in. Rotten food makes smells. Second, use a good brand of detergent in the recommended amount and use the heating cycle to heat the water up.
Most dish washers have a dryer heat cycle but this one apparently does not. This may cause mold in the machine.
How to get rid of the smell: With no dishes in the machine, add half a cup of bleach in the bottom of the unit and do a full wash cycle. If the unit still has an odor, get some baking soda...about a half cup and put that in the bottom of the machine. Close the door and leave overnight. Then, run the machine through one wet cycle...say a wash cycle and then it should stop smelling.
Hint: When leaving dishes in the machine between uses, leave the door ajar...do not close tightly.
