Smells bad The dishwasher has been smelling awful. We took the lower tray out, unscrewed the "trap" looking thing in the back right corner and there is standing water in the drain part and it stinks horribly.

I have a very bad smell in my elite kenmore diswasher. We have had it for a year now. I have been smelling this now for several weeks and I didn't know where the smell was coming from until this morning when I pulled the door down to unload my dishes.

Washing machine sewer odor


The drain pipe that your drain hose goes into is more than likely the problem. The drain pipes should have a p trap which looks kind of like an S- shape the water stays in the trap preventing the smell from backing into your home . If there is none, install one.

Newer Maytag dishwasher smells really bad inside


This problem can normally be fixed very simply and you can do it yourself.
1. There is a flexible drain line that goes from dishwasher to the sink drain line or garbage disposer.
2 You will find this flexible drain underneath the kitchen sink.
3. Make sure that the flexible dishwasher drain line goes up above the sinks lower portion of the sink basin and then comes back down into the sinks drain line or grabage disposer. The dishwasher flexible drain line must go above the bottom of sink basin like an upside down u shape, it will act as a upside down p-trap that you see under the sink in the sink drainline.
4. Once you have the flexible dishwasher drain line in this configuration (upside down U shape or p-trap) it will prevent air from leaking out of the dishwasher as the smell you are smelling is coming from the drian line.
5. You should also look inside the bottom of dishwasherr to make sure the drain screen is not clogged up.

Is there a special "internal"


Hi rbowing09,

Yes there is, though it isn't very special. it is the round fitting right at the bottom of the dishwasher.
Accessible by removing the bottom tray, it turns out.

It is surrounded by a film sieve, which can also be removed for a thorough clean underneath it.

Please also look at this tip: Click Here -> DISHWASHER NOT CLEANING WELL

Kind Regards :-)

Bad smell in dishwasher, have cleaned and even used bleach. The smell just comes back. even smells on the dishes. the smell is like a stink bug.


Three things, dryer coil, food stuck inside.

Most washers have a one way valve on the drain and a water trap
created with the line, so no water or smell can go into the machine.

Check the valve, remove the hose,that should be under the sink,
wrap a cloth around it and blow,it should not be able to blow into it.
Then make sure the hose at some point go higher then where it
connects to the drain.

Fill a bucket and fill the washer until you see a little in the bottom of the machine, watch it for a few minutes to see if it drains, it
shouldn't, dump in a bottle of white vinegar and run the machine, make sure dry is off. Then run it again, do not add anything.

I have a Whirlpool Duet front loading washer with a smelly trap.


It is normal to have water in the drain lines and drain trap even when the unit is not in use. There's usually about a gallon of residual water in the lower portion of the wash tub, drain line and pump. If you are experiencing sour odors from the washer, the following link can give you some pointers on things to try to help keep the smell from coming back:

Read through the link provided and let me know if you still have problems. I personally own a front loader and have followed this regiment for 9 years now with no odor or mildew problems. I hope this helps you as well.

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.

SHU43 Bosch Built-in dishwasher


Try running citric acid (3 tablespoons) through.
You can get it from a drug store.
Or, run 1/2 cup vinegar through.
Do this in both the dish washer and the disposal.
After doing this try running some water into the disposal and then see if the next time you run the dishwasher if it still smells.
You could be having a problem with water not staying in the drain trap under your sink that is why if you run water and fill the trap, then you will find out if it was the dry trap that caused the smell from sewer gases backing up into the house trough the garbage disposal.
