Sounds like something is on the coil that is heating the air to do the drying. The coil on most units is in the base of the wash chamber. It is black and roundish, resembling the coils on many electric stoves but larger. You might find some plastic on it. Gently remove it.

I put an enzymatic drain cleaner in the drain at night, ran it for about 20 seconds (to move the drain water into the hose and then ran it on the shortest cycle in the morning. I repeated it the next day. Seems to make a big difference. ONLY USE ENZYMATIC OR BACTERIAL BASED DRAIN CLEANER.

Check the main drain system connected to the dish washer hose pipe. Clean the junction if clogged. This smell might orginate from the pipe.
Check incoming water quality. If hard water is noticed, use softener attachments to the inlet.
Fill dish washer salt in the dispenser. Refer user guide. The salt will help softening the water to certain extent. Finally check whether rinse aid dispenser filled with the rinse aid liquid.

The reason your pump is running continuously is that the "anti-flood" protection system has been activated. This is normally due to water having leaked into the bottom of the dishwasher under the washing compartment. It could also be due to a faulty anti-flood microswitch, but the first problem is more likely.
In the bottom of the washing compartment there is a "float". Look for a dome/cylindrical shaped protrusion rising from the floor of the washing compartment. With the dishwasher on and the pump running, push down on the float and the pump should stop. If it rises back up and the pump starts to run again, then you have a leak somewhere in the bottom of the washer. If it stays down or it already down as far as it will go, then it's more likely to be a faulty switch.
Either of these potential faults can only be fully confirmed by removal of the dishwasher from under the counter and removing some of the panels to get access to the components under the washing compartment.
After testing the float, if the pump continues to run, you should to turn off the power and the water supply to the dishwasher. The problem then needs to be investigated by someone who is competent to identify the cause of the leak or replace the float microswitch, depending on which is the problem.
