Leaves a film on everything even when we run it without soap.


Use a dishwasher cleaner the clean out the dishwasher. Use either vinegar or Dishwasher Magic ( recommend this product).
Have a great day!

Dishes not clean


Run a hot wash without the dishes and a quart of white vinegar plus detergent which should wash out any oily film left by the water folks when they were 'fixing' whatever. You may have to do this several times until the water runs clean as before. Hope this helps!

My dishwasher smells when the door is opened


Jet-dry sells a product that is supposed to clean dishwashers out.
You can try running an empty load with both soap compartments full of either vinegar OR Baking soda. DO NOT MIX BOTH.

My wirlpool duet front load washer stinks both when in use and not in use. how do I thoroughly clean and fix.


Is the odor simular to mildew? If so do you leave the washer door ajar after use? If not you should, it helps promote air circulation and helps dry out the inside preventing mold and mildew smells. I would run the washer on sanitary cycle or hot water cycle with bleach and baking soda. Then leave the door ajar from then on.

My dishwasher stinks!


There is food trap of sorts that's part of the soft food disposer. Problem is that food lays down in all the nooks and crannies and festers.

Try this site on YouTube:

You probably don't need to go to this guy's extremes (but he's thorough!). You probably just need the part about how to clean the strainer and bottom of the washer. I think this'll help. There are other videos, some selling products (that I haven't used). Also some of the videos are helpful, you'll just need to take a look. Once you've cleaned the goo, you can help it clean with just one cup of white vinegar and hot water occasionally. Also, use the least amount of detergent that you can, and still get your dishes clean.

Best regards, --W/D--

Thick black oily globules left on plastic containers.


Try cycling it in energy efficient mode with the heater off.. seems like you are melting something since it only happens to plastic containers.. Also, check and clean anything that remains in your drain filter...Hope that helps...
