Fishy odor in the dishwasher and on the washed dishes


would start by removing the filters and giving them a good clean out. also clean out the spray arms. then get a good quality dishwasher cleaner and put it on an intensive wash. this should clear any smells.

if not check where the outlet hose drains to, this may need a good cleaning as build up of gunge can occur

When we open dishwasher theres standing water in the drain area and it smells bad this is after washing aload dishs look clean but inside stinks


After you run a load of dishes put 1cup of CLR or vinegar (white) and run a quick wash.no dishes,after running dishes clean out spray arm and clean strainer,use a rinse agent like finish, and spray off dishes before loading.About 35yrs. ago I use to be a dishwasher as one of my first job's and if you did'nt spray the dishes and scrap them off before loading,the dishes would not come out clean,And after each shift the dish washer would be cleaned out.

Model gu1200xtlq dishwasher can't find my manual it is 8 years old and having problems with dishes not getting clean particles left inside cups and on dishes and even inside the tub after a cycle


you can go to www.frigidaire.com and input your model number in the manuels colum and you will be able to download a new manuel.
to clean you dishwasher you can use some CLR or any other kind of lime and scale remover to clean the inside and the spray arms.
if this does no good then you may need to replace the main wash motor.make sure there is enough water in the unit when it is running lack of water is a big problem with not getting dishes clean

Fishy smell after the dishwasher runs


Do this. Pour two cups of white vinegar into the empty dishwasher and then run your longest and hottest cycle. This will clean and sanitize your machine. Do this as often as needed. J.

Bad smell on dried dishes after being washed.Stale water smell.


correct, no filters to clean, but what you are smelling is soap residues that have built up on the heating element and when it goes thru the heat dry cycle, it burns the soap causing the odors.
trying the cleaners you have may help but the cause is the residues. you need to use a d/w cleaner like d/w magic or citric acid. if you just run the unit with the waterheat option and vinegar in a bowl right side up in the top rack, it should rinse out the residues then dont use to omuch soap and only use dry powder soap. no tablets or liquids.
run hot water at the faucet first and then be sure to use the heat option. it may take a few cycles to get rid of the odor but it will go away as you get the unit cleaned out.

Dishwasher smells like pond scum


I have the SAME problem with our dishwasher. It's disgusting. Between the fishy glasses and the garlicky ice cubes (NO, we don't have garlic in our refrigerator or freezer -- purchased ice doesn't smell), I'm embarrassed to pour our guests a glass of ice water!

Dishwasher is leaving food particles everywhere


Dishwashers need cleaning too :) Take a look inside your dishwasher: Click here http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=41284 then click on PUMP AND MOTOR diagram on the left. Number 47 on that diagram is a filter. Make sure that filter is clean. Then, using a dishwasher cleaner (see below) run your dishwasher through the entire cycle on empty. This should help, post back if it doesn't. Dishwasher cleaners: 1. Vinegar - good cheap solution, if you don't mind the smell :). Dump a gallon inside an empty dishwasher tub and start up the regular wash cycle. 2. CLR - I've been told it works, but never tried myself 3. Dishwasher Magic - This stuff works pretty good. One bottle per use. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/accessories.aspx?part_id=2675393&cat=62&rdr=%2faccessories.aspx%3fcat%3d62 Hope this helps, APP tech http://www.AppliancePartsPros.com
